“To a child:
what we SAY is ambiguous;
but what we DO is a parent.”
What is the secret to creating & maintaining a positive, long-lasting, relationship?
All of us long for “connection”. It is our relationships, THE connectivity, which gives meaning to our experiences and validates our existence. Some of us even strive to connect based on a perceived lack of connection!
Whether you are looking to “find love”, whether you are interested in cultivating a positive relationship at work, whether you hope to develop a more meaningful relationship with a family member or friend — the answer is ALL the same, and can be found in “Universe You”.

“Universe You”: Intro to Connecting the Dots (Part 1)
To make the most out of a life, one needs to be able to change it. To change a life, one needs to understand what it is made of. To understand what it is made of, one only needs to understand the highest- and lowest-level components which life as we know it is made of, existence & experience, the UNIVERSE & YOU!
The “Universe You” Series will provide overarching concepts and universal truths to help an individual understand existence and maximize their experiences within it. A new part of the series will be posted every Friday morning for the next several weeks.
This is the first piece of a multi-faceted puzzle, and by no coincidence, the whole will be greater than the sum of the parts.
Part 1: Introduction to “Connecting the Dots” – what does understanding “Universe You” get you? Continue reading ““Universe You”: Intro to Connecting the Dots (Part 1)”
3-Step Loophole to Doing Great & Being Greater!
From the day we are born, we open our eyes to a world which tells us what to see. What we see, overtime, tells us who we are. Understanding how the ‘system’ works is the first step to rising above it, changing, and accomplishing anything.
The world has a preconceived notion of what is “normal”, what is “remarkable”, what one is capable of and what one is not. However, YOUR possibilities are only as limited as the world’s ability is to convince you of their limits — because eventually, we start convincing ourselves of the same.
In this loophole, we’ll discuss 3 simple tools to doing great and being greater, starting, right, now! Continue reading “3-step Loophole to Doing Great & Being Greater”
The Pursuit of Happiness is both the answer and the challenge to those of us seeking it.
Pursuit implies an end. Yet, our “pursuit” does not end in this chapter of our journey until we close both the book and our eyes for the last time. However, there is a VERY simple solution to this VERY real dilemma, friends.
No grass is as green as the envy on the individual looking over the fence.

The Good begets Good Loophole
Good breeds good. One good turn deserves another. Karma.
This post will be as short & sweet as our actions ought to be.
Yesterday I made a “Help Wanted” Post called “Take one for the TEAM“.
Karma In – Small Sacrifices:
In general, I highlighted the unfortunate order mix-up at Starbucks where I had ordered my usual White Chocolate Mocha, got a Mocha (which couldn’t taste MORE different), but due to the tension in the environment, the fact there appeared to be a new employee who was struggling to get into the swing of things, and the long line/wait I was already apart of — I opted to just move on and be thankful for a hot beverage.
It may seem a bit prima donna, but it truly is all about the little things!
Karma Out – Coming “Full Circle”:
Less than 24 hours later, I placed my morning coffee drink at the same Starbucks. They recognized me and said “you waited a long time yesterday, this drink is on us!”
Patience and kindness IS rewarded, friends. We tend to miss the opportunities all too often because of the latency involved. Be good because it makes sense to be good, but also know that things DO indeed come full-circle.
I am now enjoying, and am thankful for, another warm beverage this morning…
But this time it was my favorite kind, it was free, and it tastes like magic.
Until next time, friends, be good! 🙂
