4 Million Dollars, for 30 seconds.

  This upcoming Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday in America. This football game will be the most popular sporting event of the year.

It’s been 1 year for Inspirational Perspective

This month marks the 1 year anniversary for the Inspirational Perspective blog and Facebook page. Over 365 days ago, I was scared to death to push the publish tab on my first blog, because for the 1st time in my life I would be exposing my purpose, my passion and my dream to the world. I Read More

Good friends are hard to find…

  I have two unusual and controversial questions for you? Are you inspired or discouraged when you see success evident in the action or lives of your close friends? Have you ever been disappointed on the inside when hearing about the great achievements of another who you previously could closely identify with? These aren’t popular Read More

It’s time for a time check…

This past week I’ve struggled a bit with the fact that we all are entering the 6th month of 2012 so soon. The beginning of next month will place us at the half-way mark of this year. I don’t know about you…but for me…it seems the pace with which time is moving is unreasonably and Read More

The Illusions All Around Us

  Chicago is hosting NATO. …and just like that, I along with many other Chicagoans found out just how little what we want or would like to have…really matters.  In the end, we’re all treated like a potential protestor or threat.

The Mind’s Eye

  If you’ve studied human anatomy you already know that the ‘eye’ gets a lot of credit it doesn’t deserve.  We typically say we see through our eyes, when in essence we really see with our brain.  The eye only serves as a tool to provide the reflective signal of the colors and shapes that Read More

What do you REALLY want?

Do you have your dreams and aspirations displayed on a vision board or storyboard that you can see everyday? If the answer is no, I regret to inform you that you’re probably living Read More

Do you REALLY know how to read?

  Last week I had the opportunity to speak to a group of people about my purpose and the journey towards creating that purpose. To do this I shared a brief story: About 10 years ago a wonderful man and mentor of mine assigned me a book to read. After reading the book, I showed up Read More

Show Up!

  Think of where and who you are today… Then count your blessings… Part of the reason you are where you are, is due to how you’ve “shown up”… Right? Another way to say it would be…we all are who we are and where we are based on how we continue to “show up”! This Read More

Doing What We Can, Where We Can.

  Last week I had the opportunity to attend the 2011 Global Leadership Summit. The title alone would lead anyone’s thoughts towards a list of well-known, well qualified speakers, authors, politicians and leaders around the globe sharing their nuggets of wisdom with a captive audience… …and that’s basically what happened! For two days I had Read More
