For the last two years we’ve heard a host of candidates pitch their vision for America. They told us, over and over, what they’d do with the country if they were given executive power over the next four years. And while the Presidency is certainly a powerful position, the truth is there’s another executive whose vision will have a much greater impact over what happens in your life. That executive is YOU.

What to do When it Feels Like Everybody is Out to Get You

I recently read through the comments on a blog I wrote several days ago and got an unsettling feeling. I’m no stranger to criticism, but it’s true the personal attacks on my character get to me.

I’m getting into some debatable vocabulary, here, but I want to point out a stark difference between imagination and fantasy. I’m hoping a simple dileniation might help those of you with active imaginations.

I’m capable of living almost exclusively in my mind. I can walk and daydream for hours. But some of these…

In early 2010, after a few menacing weeks in South Africa, I was inches away from throwing in the towel on my fledgling organization. There was just too much evil in the world; too many dark forces keeping the poor in poverty and the rest of us too concerned with ourselves to do anything about it.
