Insights Along the Way
For the last three years I have been hosting the Inspire Possibility show and, along the way, have been blessed by some amazing wisdom teachers, all contributing to who I am today. Let me share some of their insights along the way:
Things change. You have to prepare yourself so that you can flow with these changes. The average person today has six or seven careers. For various reasons, friendships and relationships change. Sometimes there is no reason. And of course there are health challenges along the way.
The currents on the river of life are constantly changing; they are affected by many unforeseen forces. You can’t live your life being afraid of these changes, because by avoiding them you are not really living. You’re also not living when you waste your time complaining.
What worked at one period in your life might not work at another time. Living a successful and fulfilling life is not an accident. Successful people have goals and dreams and believe in themselves. They have faith that at the darkest moment there will be a light that illuminates their path. They know that they are not alone in this vast universe and that there is a power greater than they are. When they live from their center, they have access to this power.
Life happens. No one gets a free pass. Although life might not seem fair at times, it is still good.
You have a choice. The meaning you give to what happens is a choice. Saying, “Yes” to life and dancing on the river is also a choice.
The nature of rivers is to flow but when you stay stuck in the mud of your past, your flow gets blocked.
You are unique and special. Although it is hard to resist doing, don’t compare your life to others; who knows what’s going on with them. And by the way, it’s also hard to resist chocolate so go for it.
The best is yet to come! Yes that even means believing in miracles. Ok, I’m not talking about the Red Sea stuff, but I am talking about exceeding your expectations of yourself. Imagine your life becoming an exciting journey of discovery. As we become elders, or move in that direction, and we all are, we’ve learned how to enjoy life more. We appreciate the little things and accept the things we can’t change. Although by now we’ve all experienced our share of pain and heartache, our capacity to experience joy keeps expanding.
You know I love to hear from you. Feel free to pass this message on to those in your circle.
“What a worthy adventure we are on. Our job is to enjoy it, to be ethical and to live life fully.”

“An unlikely hero meets a modern-day mystic, who entices him to step into the greater mystery of life. In reading this story you’ll feel called to do the very same thing.”
—JOHN GRAY, New York Times Best-selling Author of
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
“If spiritual intelligence appeared to you in human form, would you listen?
The Soul of Uncertainty lets you peek into that possibility to illuminate your
own soul‘s journey. —RAZ INGRASCI, Chairman, Hoffman Institute Intl.
“A revelation! A wake-up call! Most all of us are looking for deeper meaning. The Soul of Uncertainty lifts up the human spirit and becomes your guide on an empowering journey of self-discovery.”—TEMPLE HAYES, Difference-maker, Speaker, Author, When Did you Die?
Our hero, Buddy, is uncertain from beginning to end of his story about final answers to the perplexing problems of life.
He is all caught up in what Langston Hughes calls “the sweet flypaper of life.” He gets stuck in some bad situations and problems, but always at key moments in his life a friend or mentor shows up to free him, for the time being. What makes different from the many famous coming of age stories from David Copperfield and Huckleberry Finn to The Catcher in the Rye is that Buddy talks to us, his readers and asks us questions like “What if you could wake up every morning excited about beginning your day.” —RUSSELL FANELLI, Amazon Vine
