Life Altering Events

Life Altering Events

Everyone has those AHA moments or events that change our lives for better or worse. These life altering events occur in every aspect of our professional, personal, and in the lives of our family. Try as we may, it is impossible to completely separate the events in our personal life from our professional life. Believe me, I tried and failed miserably. Life altering events present us with opportunities to seize the moment and make difference in our own life, the lives of our loved one, friends and business associates. They also can be a fork in the road where we can fall apart or pick up the pieces and start moving forward toward better times and better people. It is never too late to have the life you want and deserve. Let’s talk about it. Life Altering Events airs live every Tuesday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel....

We all have periods in our life where we just feel stuck. No matter what we think we want to do; we just never get around to getting it done. We find ourselves in a rut spinning our wheels and going nowhere. So, we settle for being stuck waiting for “mythical someday” to come. As we have said on this show before, “That in order for people to embrace and activate change, they have to feel it is both possible AND important.” So, what...

The current state of the world has brought us to an inflection point.

Life Is Not Measured By the Number of Breaths We Take, But By the Moments That Take Our Breath Away. It is the little things in life that reach out and grab our hearts; that make us smile; that we always remember with great joy. Very often these moments appear during some of the most difficult times in our life to remind us that no matter what obstacles life puts in our way, we can always look up, get up and never ever give up. ...

Have you ever noticed that good answers and good choices rarely occur when we are stressed out or in crisis mode? You cannot focus. You cannot find clarity of thought. You cannot rationally weigh the pros and cons. It is like trying to hold back the ocean during high tide. You are simply reacting to a situation you cannot change, alter or win. Our cluttered mind then tells us we have lost or we failed. At this point our lives ar...

We all know that misery loves company. It waits and watches for those who are hurting. It senses the storm seeds in our mind. Misery starts out as a friend. It will gain our trust. It will commiserate with us by watering and nurturing our storm seeds. It will not offer help. If we challenge misery and try to move forward, it will pull us back down. It takes advantage of us. It sucks the very life out of us. Misery’s goal is to repl...

For Ana Billian, this is not the first time she experienced what we today call “these unprecedented times.” Back in the early 1990s when a civil war in her home country changed everybody’s life forever, lockdown meant sharing a tiny shelter with as many people as could possibly fit in. As Ana says, “There were days when everybody woul...

Given the events in the world, many people are opting to become a solopreneur, a term we never heard of six years ago. What is a solopreneur? How hard is it to start a business by yourself and more importantly what are the odds for success? Well, the odds aren’t good. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula. Most people don’t know what they don’t know about starting and sustaining a business. Most don’t have a solid plan or know ...

Amid the chaos we are facing, a number of people are using this time to look inwardly in the hope of finding a sense of calm and peace and meaning. These people have said me “Do I even want to return to my old normal, my old job, my old habits, with all the stress and anxiety? I want to be alive with a capital A.” There has to be a better way. Maybe this is the opportunity to change.” But how do we change? What do we change? And th...

What goes around comes around. I have recently read that a new trend is having a home funeral AKA a family directed burial, rather than using a funeral home.

Today it means choosing to keep your loved one at home after they pass. Heidi Boucher is an expert in this field an...

Think back to a time when you wanted to speak up but didn’t. Maybe it an answer you wanted to give in school. Maybe it was an idea you had during a business meeting or a social gathering. Maybe you justified not speaking by thinking what you wanted to say wasn’t that important. But, what if it was something more serious? Maybe it was a time you saw a person being abused or bullied; or someone standing on a bridge contemplating sui...

Lewis Carroll wrote: “IN THE END… We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.” Do you still have a dream? Maybe it has changed over the years but do you still have a dream? Will you make the decision to leave your successful but unfulfilling existence? Most of us won’t. Too much risk. Don’t have the time. Don’t have the energy to start something...
