The Leap of Faith involves having a basic belief in yourself and a fundamental trust in the vision of who, what , and where you want to be in this life. It also invloves the belief that good things will happen when you choose to transform your life. I will also add as a spiritual reference , trust in the confidence of the One who has created you.
I would share that I took a leap of faith when I proposed to my wife. I believed that I could offer her a better life and together we could make up a dream team. This was a vision I had since a boy, to have and raise a family.
Another story I would share is that I had a vision of playing in the NFL. I worked hard as a teen , knowing that I could get there one day, dont know how but it could happen. I prayed about it, I exercised like it, I ate like it, I read like it, I watched like it. I sold out to it and was then invited to the NFL combine after college.
So let me explain more in detail and give you some pointers; to take the leap of faith does not promise you smooth sailings, it will not make everything clear. That is the exciting part, it is a journey full of turns, obstacles and challenges.

Keep these three keys in mind:
I pray this encourages you today-
Just had a great weekend and I don’t ever use it lightly when I say that. To me a great weekend meant that I grew in some area in my life and am more equipped to be the better husband, father, leader I know to be. I am curious what make a great weekend for you? Of course there are fun weekends, full of relaxation, entertainment or projects done. But this weekend was special because I invested into something very important to me.
Okay, you are thinking what is this thing you did and I am going to share what I did in a minute. But I want to share the results first.
Life Hack: Record yourself on your voice memo about what your strengths are and the positive affirmations you need to hear and play it every night for 21 days.
So, what did I do I attended a marriage conference with my wife. Yes, I invested into what is super important to me. Any time I think I have it all together I am in trouble. We have been married for 20 years this week and I need to grow more in this area more than ever. More than the first five years or the last 10 years.
My encouragement for you is that you will invest into what is important to you: Family, Marriage, Finances, Friendships, Spirit.

I’ve had a recent fascination with the psychological impact change has in our lives. I recall when I left Utah in 2008 to lead a non profit and work on a startup of a for profit, life surely changed. I went from a six figure income to spending through my savings to going on welfare, I never thought it would be like that, but it was!
Change is a constant of life , sometimes its chosen by us and sometimes it is thrust upon us, the real question what will you do about it? I wanted to share a few thoughts about what I learned from my life journey.
What I learned during that change-

Have you ever experienced it in your life when you can’t see to find a rhythm. The kind of rhythm in life that says all is working well, your mental game is on, you are feeling accomplished and confident. Some days I just feel off. Who is with me?
I start to think about all the coaching of people and the coaching I have received when slumps happen, or that non syncing felling is present. And, all that pops into my head is to take action, move towards something. Honestly I was struggling to write this blog, I didn’t know which direction to go, I shut my computer a couple of times, placed my head on the desk and asked what is that you all need to hear today. I still didn’t have any direction, and then…
An idea came to me, just be honest about where I am in this moment, and by the time you read this I will have felt accomplished and grateful for being able to spill a small part of myself onto this page. I wonder what are some things you may do to get that feeling off of you?
Here are a couple of tips I’d like to share:
