Tough Life Experiences
Betrayal is probably the most devastating loss a person can experience. To be betrayed, the person must first experience trust in the betrayer. It is impossible to be betrayed if you did not trust that person in the first place. In trusting another person, we believe they won't hurt us. When they do, many of the assumptions and ideas we held about them are broken. It is like a death.

Path to Self-Fulfillment
Never have so many needed to re-discover hope, faith and courage. Wrong thinking and wrong values set the path to superficial living. Simplicity is not about keeping up with your neighbor or friends. It is rational people who can best manage their affairs in complex situations. Happy people radiate an inner contentment that makes them more pleasant. And, true peace of mind can only come from an awareness of God's Presence in our daily walk in life.

How to Have a Perfect Life Perfectly Lived
Promotion at work? A bigger house? Or a ??????1million lottery win? What would it take to make your life better? Now ask yourself this question: what would it take to make your life PERFECT? Contrary to the promises of our commercial culture things in themselves are not the gateway to a perfect life since all things ultimately come with built-in disappointment. A new car will let you down, a super-yacht will be dwarfed by its more luxurious neighbours in the harbour. Even the richest man in the world has his problems. So where on earth can we find perfection?

My Nine Life Lessons
Recently I wrote a book about what I call "good-enough contentment." It's an allegory about a forty-something man who is unhappy with his life. After a magical train ride, he learns to define what contentment means in nine areas of his life: career, family, health, friendships, finances, leisure, spirituality, giving, and legacy. Writing the story caused me to look back at my own life--the things I did well and the many mistakes I made. It inspired me to write about nine nuggets that I wish I could go back in time to tell my younger self. Some I would have done the same all over again, others radically different. All, however, are worth putting down in writing to spur your thinking about things you need to start, stop, or continue.

Discover Why Self-Fulfillment Begins With You, Not a Job
When you wake up in the morning, do you immediately believe this is going to be a rewarding day? Do you look forward to what's ahead and know you will be able to feel good, regardless of what transpires throughout the day? This would be the ultimate goal it seems, to have a life which flows easily from day to day, and one in which you are able to feel a sense of purpose no matter what occurs. Yet for most people, this isn't the case. There always is a sense of struggle for many, searching for something to give them hope, looking for happiness in things that can be acquired, basing how they feel upon external circumstances, or any other number of similar factors. In other words, a sense of self-fulfillment is in short supply and often tied to a state of happiness, related to circumstances and fluctuates frequently.
