The hardest handicaps to overcome are mental. It happens when we tell ourselves the wrong story. Change the story. (video)
The funny, but insightful story about how we tend to destroy what is most precious to us. A video from an international speech competition.
These 4 truths about mastery and personal progress will help you find fulfillment, purpose, and direction in life, and will help you get past your failures.
I’ll be speaking at TEDxSUU, giving a 12 minute segment of my upcoming book “Discover the Light Within” and introducing Escape Velocity, the Life-Engineering framework for personal progress.
Life Engineering has become a major movement, and it’s time to up the ante. Now there’s a scaffolding of products and services to power the movement and give people more control in life.
Strength and perspective come when you climb life’s mountains, instead of avoiding them.
Little things do give us a sense of accomplishment, which can be good in building momentum, but they can also help us justify putting off the big things that really move the needle.
There are lots of noble reasons to seek change in life. According to Vince Lombardi, chiefest among them is love.
Sometimes we give too much credit to our failures, when what we really need is just a little more of this one key thing.

The inspiring story of Ted Williams, and why you should never judge a person by their looks.
Bob May had always been different. Small, weak, and slight as a child, he was regularly ridiculed, bullied, and made fun of. He spent his whole childhood like that. Eventually, he graduated from Dartmouth College in 1926 and married the love of his life, Evelyn. Together they had a beautiful daughter named Barbara. Bob became […]
The truth is, we often let the things that matter the most to us die, not because of anything we do, but because we don’t do this one thing, critical to all life.
A strong lesson I learned from my son, on the value of our time, as I watched him give so much of his own.
The poem Invictus, teaches us that we can’t control the cards life deals us, but we can control what we do with those cards. We are the masters of our fate, we are the captains of our soul.
As per my prior post, I was recently laid off, and just had my exit interview. With it comes a distinct sense of finality now. I have 7 kids and no job. It’s kind of stressful. But stress can be good. If taken appropriately, it can galvanize your resolve. It motivates you, and gives you a […]
True, so they’re undoubtedly sending this out to all their adwords advertisers, but still, I feel special! And how they did it is beyond me, it’s very cool. Here’s the link to see the video from YouTube, thanking Life-Engineering.com. Notice that with the robotic bees, life-engineering.com is spelled backwards, LOL. http://www.youtube.com/adwords10?x=9707d7fd9fdb495bad23e03da981908b What a great idea. […]
A common decision-making error called “lock-in”, which plagues so many people and prevents them from changing paths or moving forward in their lives.
I grew up in the midst of poverty, homelessness, little or no food, sometimes no running water, or heat, or friends, or anyone. My dad left when I was 2, and when I was 11, my mom left too.
But I discovered that people can be strong. That they can overcome. That sometimes they just need to be given a chance, or a little help.
For 39 years I’ve been preparing to publish my discoveries. Now I’m finally doing it.
Studying cognitive and behavioral psychology in college, with an executive career in engineering and business leadership, I've synthesized what I've learned into a movement called Life-Engineering, the science of success.
Drawing from fields like neuroscience, cognitive and behavioral psychology, behavioral economics, engineering, even physics, I’ve identified underlying principles that allow you to take control of your life and engineer your success.
Escape Velocity describes what is required for an object to leave the gravitational pull of the earth.
In life, you're also held captive by gravitational pulls. The pull of your past, of your self-image, your beliefs, your environment, peers, and more. Escape Velocity shows you how to escape the gravitational pulls holding you back, so you can change your life and experience the greatness you are capable of achieving.
