Introducing Project Candlelight

I believe that we all have the inherent ability to change the world by changing ourselves.

We can spread the light of freedom to each other just by being free around one another. That’s the mission behind our new initiative called Project Candlelight. Our goal is to do our best to shine as much light as we have found in the world.

When you change the way you think about things and the actions you take, you can create really amazing things. The change can spread so quickly — faster than you would have thought possible.

Working in Your Zone of Genius: 5 Practical Questions

Do you dread Monday mornings? If so, you’re probably not working in your Zone of Genius. If you were, you’d be getting paid for the things that you excel at and love to do.

Say Goodbye to Analysis Paralysis

You have five million things you’d love to accomplish during your time on earth, but you’re starting to feel that you haven’t checked even a single one of them off your list. There’s so much to do and so many ways to go about it, and you’re stuck trying to decide what your next right move is. You’re trapped in analysis paralysis.

Analysis paralysis happens when you don’t move forward because you don’t know the right way to go. But instead of looking for the “right” answer, you can trust that every experience holds value for you. Through each one, you can move closer to the vision you have for your life.

How Do I Get Over Impostor Syndrome?

You’re getting somewhere in your business, and it’s pretty great.

But wait, do you really belong at this level? Maybe it was all just dumb luck, and others are going to find out pretty soon that you don’t deserve to be here. When’s it all gonna come crashing down?

It sounds like you’ve got a case of impostor syndrome.

Impostor syndrome is a common issue among business owners. It’s that nagging sense of doubt that says, “You don’t deserve to be where you are right now.” Gaining a fresh perspective on your skills, your accomplishments and your worth as a person can help you overcome impostor syndrome.

Zone of Genius: What It Is and How to Find It

Have you ever wished you were a genius? What if I told you that, in your own way, you already are one? Everyone’s got a Zone of Genius. Your task is to identify yours and then live within it.

Your Zone of Genius is the intersection of what you love, what you’re good at and what you can get paid for. Why identify your Zone of Genius? When you work within your Zone of Genius, you’ll be really alive, and you’ll serve what the world needs.

Apply the Empowerment Triangle to Your Life

If you’ve ever worked with a therapist or a relationship coach, you may have been introduced to the Drama Triangle. It’s a model for understanding the unhealthy relationships we can establish with other people, ourselves, or the world around us. Perhaps you’ve also seen The Empowerment Dynamic, an inverse model that puts a positive twist on each of the Drama Triangle roles. What you might not know, though, is what to do with those models — how to flip the switch from Drama to Empowerment.

The difference between the Drama Triangle and The Empowerment Dynamic hinges on the belief about the person at the center — a Victim with a fundamental lack or a Creator who’s resourceful and complete. With a shift in that core assumption, you can flip from toxicity to empowerment in your life.

Foundational Thinking Patterns That Can Change Your Life

That may be the lens through which you’ve been viewing things for a long time. But despite the fact that it makes sense in your head, it’s not helping you be the person you want to be or find what you’re looking for in life.

It’s time to reassess your foundational thinking patterns.

You aren’t observing things as they are. Rather, you are observing things as you are. That’s a powerful realization. Once you grasp it — and shift your thinking accordingly — it will become the foundation for the transformation work in your life.
