anything is possible

Do you ever feel like life is conspiring against you? Do you feel that no matter how hard you try, your getting trumped by the royal cards of the universe?

Many times people don't realize their thought patterns. They subconsciously sabotage their abounding great thoughts with thoughts of fear, hopelessness and failure in the back of their minds. Learn to clear those remaining negative thoughts in your head. The truth of the matter is there is endless possibility, not despair. It is your choice to see it in either light.

Often times we think of some difficulty or problem that we are going through and we become heavy with those thoughts. Begin to focus on the opportunities that will come from crossing over that bridge. You have crossed it many times before in your life and the outcome has always been the right one.

Everyone struggles with problems and challenges in life. You are no exception to this truth, however, what you do with that information and how you perceive it, is your real test of character. Embrace this struggle as you have done all other struggles in your life and learn from it. Use the message, not the event, as your guide. This tends to keep you on an even keel while sailing life's occasional rough seas.

Situations can be disruptive and take you off course a bit, as they tend to do in everyones life, however the real benefit comes from what you do with that situation. If you feed the event or challenge with energy, it will grow and grow and eventually over power you, however, if you choose to see the event or challenge as a speed bump, not giving in to its energy and moving on, you will find yourself much happier throughout.

An example I like to use here is a financial set back. No matter what the set back, whether it is an unexpected car repair, a water heater gone bad in the middle of the night, or an emergency surgery for yourself, the thing to focus on is not what has happened, but that this too shall pass. Cars get repaired, water heaters replaced and surgeries completed successfully. Don't make the deal bigger than it is, don't feed the situation more than it needs to eat.

You can't always dictate the course of your life, however, you can enjoy the ride, admire the sunshine, feel the soft breeze on your face and know that whatever course you have charted is the one you are supposed to be on. Believe that anything is possible!

Until next time.


  1. Dear Son,
    A thousand Thanks for your wonderful blogs. They helped me redirect my recent
    feelings of panic attacks, angst, fear and depression. Quite a package. I am
    already feeling almost happy. I am so proud of you and love you very much.

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
