Alisa was busy collecting the papers and half empty water bottles around the big boardroom table as the last few of the team sauntered out the double glass doors. The Chicago skyline filled the big windows and the room was glowing as the sun began its morning trek across the sky.
The room was still electric with the excited energy the third quarter numbers represented. The board and shareholders are very pleased.
One of the glazed doors swung open and Terry, the company's CFO in his classic tweed jacket and bow tie popped his head in.
Alison then realized that her boss and company president was still in the room. He was leaning up against one of the large floor to ceiling windows gazing down at the streets below. It was Terry's second calling of his name that Bruce snapped ou...
Guys, you'll want to pay attention as you read this post.
It covers some very true and obvious challenges that both men and women are dealing with...Especially in today's infamous dating landscape.
Whether you are single, dating or in a long term relationship, never take your foot of the gas...here's why:
I had the opportunity to sit with a dear and platonic friend that I hold in high regard. She's a women's coach and dating expert. So she had much to share about her real-world observations.
We sat at the corner of the bar in a very popular and busy chain restaurant. It was the start of "Happy Hour" and the suits were pouring in to enjoy a drink with colleagues, for camaraderie and some came in for the feigned attention of the very attractive bar staff.
Sex and intimacy.
They are one of the top prime directives in a relationship. It is what makes us come alive, feel connected and powerfully bonded with our beloved.
Sex and intimacy are a big part of a man's sense of masculinity and feeling like a man.
Ask a women, how important sex chemistry is and she too will agree it is a right near the top of "must haves" in a relationship.
With that you would think couples are nocking boots every night!
Sadly, that is not the case at all.
If you are frustrated, feeling rejected and not as intimate with your partner as you would like to be, there are some shocking statistics that prove you are not alone.
I see this a lot in my coaching practice, in my audience and the groups I run - There's a huge lack of sex and intimacy in...
Yesterday a father in his mid 40's and his 18 year old son were arrested for senselessly beating an innocent man in a ridiculous case of road rage.
After pretty much forcing a man's work van off the road and then dragging him out of his van, they proceeded to beat him until witnesses intervened. It could have been much worse.
They still couldn't get the reason for the attack.
The cowards fled and were later picked up by police at their home.
My question is: What place does a man have to come from where he shows his son this is how it's done?
What major malfunction does this kid already have engrained in his head about life as he starts his journey as a man in this world? I can't imagine the environment and head space in which these two men exist in.
So you have it pretty good. You've got a great career or business and things seem to be chugging along nicely.
On the surface you have great friends, even a great relationship and family. You're so lucky!
However, for some strange reason, you feel like it's all about to go south on you at any moment.
You have this sensation of impending doom and don't know how to stop it from happening.
Well of course. I mean If you look at your track record you'll even see a ton of evidence to support your neurosis.
In business, you've got quite story: That last job or business you were in tanked due to someone pulling the rug out from under you. The culture sucked! The economy went sideways. You manifested some shading partners and they took all yours and your investor's money. You were so burned!
