    LIAM 554 – I Was So Much Older Then

    LIAM 554 – I Was So Much Older Then

    I think most of us take life far too seriously. We've gotten tricked into thinking in terms of right and wrong, good and bad, yours, mine, and all the other scarcity thoughts that rob us of the joy of living. I used to be that way. I was so much older then; I'm younger than that now! Listen as I explain:

    LIAM 552 – Stay in the Game

    LIAM 552 – Stay in the Game

    As children, we loved to play games; sometimes we won, sometimes we lost, but the joy came from playing the game. As we grew, we started taking the losses personally, or we got hurt, so we stopped playing. Let's rekindle our enthusiasm for the game of life! Stay in the game! Listen as I explain:

    LIAM 551 – The Progressive Apocalypse

    LIAM 551 – The Progressive Apocalypse

    Much of my life has been a progressive apocalypse. The word "apocalypse" actually means "to uncover or reveal." Life often teaches us to believe things that aren't true. When we discover this and learn what is true, what always was true, it can feel like the end of the world. Listen as I explain:

    LIAM 550 – Wandering Toward Goals

    LIAM 550 – Wandering Toward Goals

    Not all who wander are lost. Most coaching around achieving goals is about having a laser focus so nothing distracts you from the goal. I don't teach this. Life isn't about laser focus, it's about enjoying as much as we possibly can, it's about wandering toward our goals. Listen as I explain:

    LIAM 549 – Anakephalaiosis and the Labyrinth of Life

    LIAM 549 – Anakephalaiosis and the Labyrinth of Life

    We are all on a path of life, a labyrinth, not a maze. Mazes have hard blocks, wrong turns, and it's possible to get stuck and lost in a maze. A labyrinth is a continuously flowing path with no wrong turns. When we start to see life from this perspective, we can learn to trust the path and keep moving forward. Listen as I explain:
