As the COVID fiasco continues people continue to suffer and die, but not primarily from COVID.


"Of all the deaths attributed to COVID, a mere 6% of those deaths had COVID alone cited as the cause," cited the Dailywire.


"For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death," the CDC report stated.


Turns out what many thought all along is turning out to be proven true, COVID is no where near as deadly as was suspected. Major government screw ups? Major government cover ups? Both? Who knows, but the solution to the perceived problem has become the real problem.


Drug overdoses in America dropped for the first time in 25 years in 2018, but increased in 2019 to just under 72,000. With nation wide reports of overdoses soaring during the last four to five months, it is looking like this year has the potential to be the worst year for overdoses in over 25 yrs.


As someone in long term recovery, and someone that works in the addiction treatment industry, I can say first hand that isolation is like kryptonite when it comes to recovery. Relationships, meetings, conversations over coffee, and healthy social outings are a life line for people in recovery.


The shocking part is that even after the recent reports from the CDC, Government restrictions haven't changed much. In many states masks are still mandatory, and in some states businesses and churches are still closed.


In the midst of all of this some sad truths are bursting to the surface of society.


California has seen more suicide deaths than COVID deaths, and mind you that was with the fabricated deaths tolls. Some mental health hotlines have seen as much as a %900 increase in calls during the restrictions.


These major problems don't even include the financial issues people are facing, the issues that small businesses are facing (if they even survived this mess), and the list could go on.


Call your city and state representatives, make your voice heard, it's time we turn a corner on this thing. People are suffering and dying, and it's not primarily COVID causing that.

Part 1 HERE


I love my clients, and I love what I do. But I'm constantly shocked at how the people that come to me for coaching have little to no definition to their vision, if they even have a vision for their future.


"A vague vision will get vague results, and a clear vision will get clear results."


Discipline is a much needed tool when it comes to walking out our purpose, but without a clear vision our newly applied "discipline" can have us being very busy but not as productive.


One of the first steps to getting a good vision is getting help from someone that has been where you want to go. If I could do it on my own I wouldn't be reevaluating my current position to begin with.


Getting the vision comes from getting help from someone who sees different than you.


Whenever I'm faced with a big decision, or I feel God calling me into something new, I pray and than I run it by a few friends that I trust. I ask them for honest feedback.


What am I doing when I do this?


I am getting a different viewpoint, or in other words, a different vision. I need to see the path forward as clear as possible, and extra sets of eyes helps me do that.


20 minute video with insights and practical tools you can begin to apply today.




Here are some good questions that will help you bring definition to your vision.


Where do you want to be in a year?


What are you willing to do to get there?


What are you going to change, and what are the action steps you are going to start taking to get there?


Next step? Accountability.


Get a guide that lead you down the path and help you avoid pitfalls.

If you think about it, people that struggle with addiction are already very disciplined people. For years we stayed focused on being drunk and high no matter what. That takes a lot of discipline.


What if the discipline you need is already in you, you just need a different mindset and value system to reap the right benefits from it?

When we were caught in active addiction our motivating factor was running from responsibilities and numbing the pain that life had dealt us, or the pain we dealt ourselves.

What if the same discipline can be accessed and used for your recovery?

Just flip the script on it


I believe the first step to seeing discipline as a positive thing is learning to see correction as a positive thing. When we resist correction (healthy correction from healthy people, that is) it shows that we think we have it all figured out, and we all know that we don't.

When my recovery started I had hit a new low. I was forced into a decision. Refuse correction and eventually die, or embrace correction and live the life I had been dreaming of. I took correction and direction.


One of the first places I applied it was in my daily disciplines of prayer and reading. The results? Well, they were powerful and life changing.


I could stay high and drunk everyday no matter what, therefore I had no excuse to not be connecting with God and handling my business everyday...no matter what.

Discipline is active in your life no matter what, think about it...

You might say, “I’m not disciplined. I watch way to much Netflix.”

Well, it’s takes discipline to watch that much Netflix. You’re watching that much Netflix because you believe it’s providing you some kind of value. Is it?

Once you realize that applying your discipline to binge watching isn’t empowering you to partake of the life you truly want you’re left with a decision. That decision is, do you still want to use your time and discipline to do something that isn't getting you where you really want to go?


So, where do you want to go?


And are the actions you're taking getting you there?



Here's 3 Quick Tips to Begin to Shift Your Discipline


1- Write down where you want to be in the next 90 days of your life.


2- Begin to pray into that 90 day vision on a daily basis.


3- As the vision begins to manifest in your life, update and adjust it for continued growth.
