Have you ever asked yourself, “what have I done with my life?” You have a stable job, maybe a family, and good friends. Yet you feel that something important is missing. That all-important thing which motivates you to wake up early each morning and go to work on time. That tiny detail enables you to survive a week loaded with impossible tasks; that little something called drive.

Tips to better my life
I need to take life as it is. Not necessarily meaning to sit back and do nothing but to understand not everything can and will go perfectly. Giving my best to activities I do day to day like sports and interactions helps my drive and positivity.
These are all things I’ve applied to my life over the years. They may be beneficial for some, but for me it’s common sense. “Choose an area to master” would be great if I hadn’t already done that and left that industry behind. This is definitely more helpful to those that work, but seems a little impractical for those of us that stay at home.
Mid-life and mid-career
At this stage in life it feels like I’m at a fork in the road. This session is a very useful refresher guide to assist with making important moves.
To Master the Tools of Life
You don’t have everything, but you can work hard to achieve and be good at something. Be it cooking, music, art or one of my personal favorite things ... English. I realize by going with this decision, it will help me feel good to know I’m really good at something and it is certain.
Not for me
This was a basic reform your life speech. I'd rather refocus my emotions. My physical world is fine. 😊
A nice refresher on life skills. For “free spirits”, this moment helps reorganize! Have fun!
Thought of the day
I learned that I am not motivated by other people telling me what should be done in order to be happy because other people have different definitions of happiness
Listening to the meditation made me feel so much better. Master something u like Have fun. Be yourself. Set achievable goals and Take risks
Looking for motivation to get me to accomplish some needed client work today...this wasn't it.
I guess I'm just too lazy or tired or scattered now to accomplish needed tasks! I NEED to place an order for some signs for a new client, but I'm not getting other tasks accomplished needed to do so! I need to go tidy up my office. I need to reclaim my office space, lost to the family while I languished in the hospital...but the task is just so darn overwhelming!
Tools of life
Listening to these tips I realized I need to take some chances. Do something different or unexpected. I tend to live conservatively and it is safe but, not always fun. We all need more fun in our lives!
5 tips for purpose
I listened and I heard my exact monologues from the past few weeks. I don’t hate my stable job I have a beautiful family but I need drive. But also be kind you can’t be perfect and that shouldn’t demotivate you either! Do your best and have fun.
Walter J
Life is a journey and I am where I am suppose to be, but not where I want to or will ultimately be. I believe I am growing into what I was created or called to do, or at least I am on the right path journey towards it. I need to be patiently persistent because it takes time for things to grow before they can develop buds and ultimately bloom. I often get frustrated because I can visualize what I want my life to ultimately look like, but I’m not there yet. I realize how Lucky I really am when I take the time to count my blessings! Things such as I like being me, I do know where I’m going, I have a plan for it, things are In motion, I take calculated risks, I certainly have fun and that I’m well on my way to making my vision a reality. Several of the reasons why I truly am “Walter J - The Luckiest Man Alive!” - my book about this is “done” and going into publishing mode this month. Look for it this summer. (no pressure Justine) ❤️✌🏼
In due time 🗓
I have both short and long term goals, mostly long term. Some are just going to happen in due time, others are just sort of up in the air. I have to get to a certain point before I can tackle them. I’m patient enough and can wait for the fun stuff. If I saved every penny and had made some better choices involving cost-of-living -rent- I would be closer to that fun stuff. But at the same time I still need to make life count every day. So I do!!! 😎☮️🌅❤️
5 tips...
I learned that I’m a planner and have created the life that I want. I need to be more spontaneous, have more fun and not be so rigid with every aspect of my life. I never want to look back and have regrets.
Life Lessons
I learned that it is important to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. All those self help books out there take what they say with a grain of salt and just be yourself. Have fun.
I am stepping outside my comfort zone this summer with a trip to Colorado for a national soccer tournament, a team that I help coach qualified for this tournament.
Exactly what I needed to hear this morning. Thank you universe for knowing. I’m truly grateful for the simple things that opens the path for greater things. Namaste
I need to take risks.
I will remember this when I go skiing. :) Instead of focusing how old I am I need to keep pushing myself
I learned that it’s not going to happen overnight but with daily practice, I will start to gain more control over my life and I will begin to improve and get better.
Five Tips
Sadly, a lot of people wake up each morning and continue to go through the motions of life. They may be considered successful, especially by society’s standards, but they feel they are missing something. That something is drive. In this life coaching session, Dave gives us five tips to master that will increase our drive and thus, enable us to live life to the fullest. The first tip is staying true to who we are. While it is good to recognize any limiting beliefs we may have and strategies to quiet our inner critic, we don’t have to completely change who we are in order to live life to the fullest. The second tip is focusing on what we want to achieve. By mapping out which path we want to take, we do two things. We make it easier to set short and long term goals and we realize that some goals require action now while others will take some time to achieve. To fully live life to the fullest requires us to step out of our comfort zone. This leads to tip three. We need to take calculated risks. Life is about having new experiences, not ones that we relive over and over again. Tip four requires us to do some soul searching of what we love to do and begin to be a master at it. This gives us confidence and teaches us two things; we don’t have to have everything in life and with hard work, we can have what we love. Finally, the fifth and the most important tip of them all, have fun. Instead of doing things just to check them off some list, we need to be having fun while doing them. This is where mindfulness comes in. Being mindful, we utilize all of our senses into what we are doing. Quieting the chatter in our mind allows us to fully experience this act of doing. Thus, we can find joy in even the most mundane of tasks. “Don’t judge each day by the harvests you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
This made me appreciate my life more, which lifted self-inflicted burdens and unnecessary pressure. Life is always evolving; there is no rush because it’s my journey.
Be myself! I’m OK as I am even if I wish to improve.
I’m OK as I am and I don’t want to waste my life wishing I was prettier, skinner, or more successful. I’m already good enough.
Clear my mind
I found that I was able to really clear my mind while listening. His talking was calming.
5 Tips to Master
His voice was soothing and helped me clear my mind. I will have to listen to this once more but felt connected to idea of reflecting on yourself and how you see yourself. Setting goals is something I enjoy doing to be able to track my progress. I am excited about the daily sessions of mindfulness and what it can help me with.
Definitely soothing and he is inspirational to listen to!
Having fun is important even if it’s a work place that brings drama. I’m gonna hold my head high and do great today. Positive energy
Ahh.. Be yourself 😊
Being yourself is such a huge tip! It’s amazing how much time we try to hide our imperfections instead of living out best lives. Great reminder!

Be happy
I learned that you need fo focus on yourself and your goals
Pause & be present
Pause in between things & breathe to bring yourself back to where you are in the present moment
I learned that it’s ok to be myself. I should embrace it.
I was reminded of the need to set goals. As I listened, I noticed my body relaxing. I had one arm laying on top the other and I actually felt my pulse in each hand. This helped me realize how tense I am all the time and the need to take moments each day to unwind.
takeaway for me is setting goals ..
I learned that part is missing most of the time from my and actually I am the most motivated when I did set a goal of learning something
