action to make change
 “Things do not change, we do.” Henry David Thoreau This short statement is a call to action that labels us as personally responsible for the directions our lives take.  If life is different than we wish it to be, merely waiting for something to change is like hoping to complete a marathon while keeping our feet planted at the starting line. Any scientist will tell you that change requires action. Many people know that they want change, but feel as though they are stagnant, uninspired or even stuck.  It is not uncommon to want change, but often we feel stuck because...

plug into your potential
Acorns seem to offer the perfect analogy to illustrate the word “Potential”.  The first person ever to hold this tiny seed could never have imagined the towering oak that would come from such a tiny package. Even the most future-minded thinker would not be able to fathom the mighty oak destined to emerge.  Favorable conditions and an optimal growth-spot is what allows that acorn to plow its massive roots deep into the soil while its sturdy trunk and branches expand toward the sky.  This beautiful analogy culminates with the production of thousands of acorns during the life of this singular oak. ...
