Fire & Resistance

You can bet your ass I was deterred!

2020 is a year, which in most months and most days, giving up seems like a really great option. Below is a picture of a fire that started less than 4 miles from the location from which I planned to launch Canon Collaborative just a few short weeks ago.

I had traveled over 2,000 miles to join the currents of energy that keep me moving toward being a better person and toward achieving my goals. Some of my biggest cheerleaders.

The dark loom of smoke and eventual evacuation was received as yet another overwhelming challenge in this wild pandemic of a year. All we can do is take a deep breath -- and maybe say hi to a friend as they can give really great advice.

This advice was a reminder that resistance is necessary. Resistances, imperfections, slowing down, falling down yet again. And again. These experiences are essential for refining position and clarifying stance -- and for doubling down on what you already know: that you can and must chart a revised path forward.

We will thrive when we are free to grow with and around our struggles — to allow the resistance to clarify our path forward -- to create change and freely evolve to join the currents and rhythms of life that sustain and fulfill us. The rhythms that motivate us to get out of bed in the year 2020 and say regardless of whether or not the world is on fire — I am going to live the life I am meant to live.

CliftonStrengths is a tool that helped me navigate the currents within me that were, at various times in my life, illuminated in their full power and other times dwindling and dormant. I believe that keen mindfulness of your core strengths will serve as a guide as you navigate toward the most optimal configuration of life -- for yourself, your family, your work, and your world.

The chance of someone having your top strengths is 1 in 476 trillion. Although I am trained as a coach, I consider myself more of an analyst -- and your strengths are the machine. I want to provide you with insights into your unique strength patterns and help you configure them for optimal success -- bringing power to the flow of life.

Live long and prosper,
