Self Reflection & Courage = A Passionate Life
Today’s MoClar Moment is a story about courage. Courage to believe. Courage to manifest a desire knowing that failure is not an option. Courage to listen to your soul and hear the purpose. Courage to love who you are despite years of thinking differently. Today is me being ultra vulnerable to demonstrate when a person knows without a doubt what their purpose is.
Everything we see around us was first a thought. Well, actually it was first nothing. As the cosmic energy works, nothing only becomes something when there is a desire to make it something. Therefore, everything you see actually comes from a thought that felt a burning desire. As desire shows us possibilities, creative thoughts are produced. And as creative thoughts are produced, actions are made. As actions are carried out, physical, touchable elements are manifested. Until thoughtful desire turns into possibility and possibility turns into actions, there is nothing.
In 2012, I had a desire. I just came off of a year of celibacy and spiritual study. It was the first time in my life where everyday I wrote in my journal. I was meditating daily and intuitively listening to my heart. That year I was driven to change my beliefs, my values and rethink my future. Something was calling my name. It was just waiting for me to wake up. In 2011, I began waking up. As 2012 started, my desire developed thoughts in me of a new way to help people. I, for the first time in my life, could feel my infinite soul.
I worked with my coach to help me develop a strategy to build my new desire. I had yet to know what it was but I knew if I kept meditating and intuitively listening it would show itself. Through-out 2012 I sharpened my skills, advertised my business, developed relationships with clients and with patience my purpose slowly started to reveal itself.
I will never forget the moment my true purpose, my ultimate destiny fully developed as a vision in my head. Up until then, I tried on many coaching hats; Business Coaching, Executive Coaching, Career Coaching, etc.
On August 9th, 2013 as I sat down to reread my story about why I came to coaching as a new career path, I realized that it was a moment of clarity on that hill that day back in fall of 2010.* It came just like an aha moment.
Aha is defined as when something is suddenly seen, found, or understood. I found myself that day. I had an aha moment or a moment of clarity. As I focused on the words “moment of clarity“, I realized what my purpose was. A moment of clarity is the most powerful moment in one’s life. You suddenly change everything. I looked at that phrase “moment of clarity” and I knew right then and there, I wanted to teach, coach and do anything I could to help others find their own moments of clarity. Profound Coaching is where my path lies. On August 9th, 2013, MoClar Moments was born.
Since that day, thoughts have just been flowing out of me. I have been like a facet of ideas. And that is when I knew, I was aligned for the first time in my life with my soul. We connected so deeply that everyday has been a tremendous blessing. There is no option of failing at this new love of mine. Everything fits. Will everyday be perfect? No. But everyday brings me closer to individuals who are looking for their moments of clarity. Everyone I help gives me more experience in helping the next person. I cannot create moments of clarity. But I sure can promote practices or help you stick with practices that will promote moments of clarity for you.
MoClar comes out of the saying “moment of clarity.” Mo = moment & Clar = clarity.
On that hill in 2010, I had a moclar moment. On August 9th, 2013, I had a moclar moment. Today, my moclar moment came when I realized I needed to tell this story so that you could understand fully where my heart is. So that you could feel the passion that runs through my veins for my life’s work. Every career I have ever had, every moment, every experience, has led me to this. I couldn’t have come to it any sooner or later. I arrived exactly when I was supposed to.
Everyday is a courageous moment to believe that I am here for purpose and that through my devotion and my daily actions, I will align with others who are looking to develop those practices to create those moments of clarity to move them forward, to live their purpose, to align with their soul and to have the same passion for their life’s purpose as I have for mine.
For all who have read this story, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and my soul. Here’s to our life purposes!
“Theses experiences are often touching and memorable. People can feel the presence of something larger, something more patient and vaster than their ego.” –Tim Kelley, True Purpose

Today, instead of a mediation or journal entry or exercise, my hope is simply to open you up to possibilities. For me, I get inspiration when I take a walk in nature, have an epic conversation, meditate or read a good book. I challenge you to find your inspiration and today focus on it.
If it is a kicking boxing class that aligns you and gives you a smile, get to that class! If it’s a walk in nature like me, take time out for that walk. If it’s reading that book, go to bed 30 minutes early and read for those 30 minutes, undisturbed.
If you don’t know where you get your inspiration, ask friends where they get theirs and try it. You will know which ones work and which ones don’t; Trust me.
When you find the activities that create your inspiration, repeat those activities often.
Down below, please share your stories of passion, purpose and moment’s of clarity. Thank you.
