Donald Van de mark with Steve Case
The best people I’ve ever interviewed such as Andy Grove, Bill Bradley and Steve Case, all believe in three fundamental truths about everyone’s life:   1. Everything is changing, always (which is why you must look at every day with fresh eyes) 2. Reality always intrudes 3. Every person can have a profound effect on his/her own destiny.    It’s a belief in what poets call the symmetry of our actions, that the chickens do come home to roost, that what goes around does come around, that Karma is real, that there is always a day of reckoning.  Or as the great...

Acknowledging these feelings about how we approach our daily our lives will hopefully open up an opportunity to stop and reflect about our behavior patterns, prompting us to ask questions. Ask yourself: Are you stuck in denial, apathy, self-doubt or blame?

Strength the power of acceptance
A key component to moving into a strength focus begins with the first of 4 UNFEAR practices that I share in my book. Accept what is real. Unless and until we accept the circumstances of a given situation, we are reacting from fear and through fear based behaviors.  Forward movement is limited or impossible without first giving acceptance. To operate from a place of strength, it is necessary to first accept our talents, our desires, our natural propensities, our weaknesses, our deficiencies, our circumstances, as well as the demands being placed on us.  If we dwell on what's not working, we...
