Workplace grief

Workplace grief Do you or have you had to deal with workplace grief? When I lost my daughter in 1993 I owned my own business, so I didn’t really have to deal with workplace grief. I was the boss. I have heard so many others that I have talked with over the years that tell such a different story about workplace grief. I could make a long list of the comments that I have heard about. What would you say Now you may know how it is to lose a close loved one. If someone called tomorrow and said that they just experienced a loss of a loved one, what would you say to them? If you were the supervisor in charge of running a department and had to turn a profit. I know what I would say, but for many supervisors and owners that don’t understand and have to track the bottom line their answer may be very different. Did you know that $ billions dollars of revenue are lost in Business...

009: You can’t get there from here

You can’t get there from here You can’t get there from here, have you ever felt or even said that to yourself. In my video I talk about how I was lost in the fog for over 20 years To watch the video click here. If I was to take you out blind folded during dusk or dawn so you can’t tell what direction you’re facing. Do you think you could find your way? I know I wouldn’t be able to do that. This is the same as emotionally being lost in the fog. Not knowing where to turn or go. You can’t get there from here. You can set your emotional GPS the same as you would set your GPS in your vehicle to help you get from point A to point B.  The difference we will be traveling between the cities of Depression, Anger, Frustration, Hope, Hopefulness, to arrive at Joy-full and the city of Bliss. Once you understand how you can reset your emotional starting point you can change your state...

Design your ideal life

Design your ideal life What do you think about when I ask the question, Design your ideal life? Before you answer that, let me tell you a little bit about what I think of that question. If someone would have said that to me after my daughter had passed away. I would have laughed at them and said you have to be joking. How in the world can I do that without my daughter in my life? I hated my life so much that I wanted it to end, let alone look to the future. It just wasn’t a very promising outlook for me. Years later Fast forward years later if you were to ask me to design my ideal life, I would love to explore that idea. Some people would say, right you would say that because it has been 23+ years following my daughter’s death. Not so fast. I have met so many people not to mention worked with many people who are 20, 30 years in their journey with grief that...

008: Part 2 story replay

Part 2 story Replay I started this day sitting and enjoying a cup of coffee with my wife. Then at 7:30 am I received a phone call that any parent doesn’t wish to receive. My son who is 18 was involved in a head on collision on his way to school. This is not what you want to hear. However by the grace of God along with having his sister Kelsey as his guardian angel he was fine. He walked away with no injuries other than being a little shaken up. The other person also was fine with no injuries. A great way to start a day. Always in fear of getting another call that one of your children had died. Listen to the replay of our Wednesday nights call of part 2 story replay Part 2 story Replay Replay MP3

Big Heart

Big Heart If your grieving the loss of a loved one you are living with a broken heart. I feel that one of the best cures for a broken heart is to have a big heart. What do I mean by broken heart vs a big heart? I’ll do my best to explain. I lived with a broken heart for so many years, in fact for over 20+ years. There were times during that over 20 years that I had found myself giving to others out of the need to help others. After putting myself out there not to mention being vulnerable with my feelings my problems with life along with the grief I was living with for that short time left me. Or maybe it was that I just didn’t think of it all that much. This went on for many years never understanding or realizing that giving of myself to others in their time of need whatever that was, it was helping me with my grief. It is hard to give to...

My goal, my plan this week was to continue with that theme and work on the next part of the story going forward and everything, but some things have happened over the last several days. I’ve had some conversations with a few other people, and there’s been a common topic has come up. Usually, I will speak about these things as they come to me. Sometimes it’s a spur of the moment. I’ve been known to change things like 30 minutes before I start a program like this just to change the whole talk, because I get a feeling. I get an emotion. I get something that is talking to me that says there’s somebody, and there’s people that may need to hear this, but this talk here tonight that we’re going to talk about, I’m going to encourage you to...

7 steps I found that helped me cure my grief 7 steps I found that helped me cure my grief. It has been a long 23 year journey. It took the work of my coach to help me peel back the layers and begin to realize that I had processed the knowledge and the know how to cure my grief.
