Hello world!

Welcome!  I am delighted that you are here. 

 My mission is to experience the joy of living on purpose, sharing what I learn with other seekers. 

 As a result of my coaching practice and my personal journey I am constantly learning new and wonderful things about living a joy-filled, abundant life.  Since my mission is about sharing, I thought creating a blog would be a great way for me to share what I am learning.  My desire is that you will share what you are learning as well. 

More specifically this blog will be about what I learn as I coach and teach about Change Your Energy – Change Your Life.  If you would like to read some about that you can go to or join one of my teleclasses. 

Now that I have said all of the things I think I should say, let me talk about what is really happening to me right now.  I am having to deal with fear.  My fear is about my ability to deal with details.  Creating a blog page that is visually and verbally appealling requires that I take time to read all of the instructions about how to make this thing work.  Taking the time to read the ‘details’ literally causes my stomach to do flip flops and for my nerves to begin to viberate.  Paying to attention to details feels the same in me as when I become hypoglycemic from not eating.  Everything starts to shake.  When I am hungry and the feeling starts, I go right away for something sweet to eat.  When I am dealing with details, my reaction is to move on to something else and not finish the detail laden project or to create my own short-cut that bypasses the detail.  By the way, I also become irritable and lose patience with others quickly in detail oriented situations.  The outcome of my approach to detail is that I seldom produce the quality of work of which I know I am capable.  What makes matters even worse, is I know how I react to detail and I avoid it at all costs and don’t even start things that my soul knows I want to do because there are details involved.   That is okay as long as I don’t want to live full-out, experiencing all that I can in this life.  I have said many times, “The essence of freedom is discipline.”  Discipline equals details.  Yuk! 

Getting this far in the blog is a miracle for me.  Staying with WordPress long enough to get this done has been a challenge.  My intention  is to change a this life pattern that doesn’t serve me.  The fear- based life pattern is ‘I can’t deal with details’.  I am changing that to ‘I easily handle all of the details in the life of a successful writer.’  So I will smile, feel the energy flowing through me and say ‘I easily handle all of the details in the life of a successful writer.’

I know that what make a blog work is frequent and interesting posts.  You are probably laughing to yourself while you wonder if I can “do detail”.  Stay tuned.



  1. To the Smile Coach!
    Congratulations on your blog launch! I am so proud of you and the way you are challenging yourself. Just one more reason to love you!

  2. I am with you brother. I ignore these details of business. I just want to talk to people, love them, and watch the money roll in. I am learning that there are details to doing a business that I would rather not be bothered with!!!!!!!!!!! Congratulations on pushing yourself, just another reason I love you so much.

  3. Go Frank Go!!! You are inspiring and remind me that at any stage of our life there are fun new things to learn and we are capable. Thanks for sharing and will be staying tuned to the blogs.

  4. WOOOO-HOOOO, Frank! I am proud of you, Coach! You have expanded your comfort level and taken your life to the next level…you’ve jumped (excitedly) into the world of technology! Remember how I described starting my blog and website as “walking on the bottom of the ocean”? I’m thrilled to have you here along with me! Congratulations! Now even more Seekers will be able to experience the Good you have to offer. (big smile!!)

  5. Frank,
    Details have been the bane of my existence, also! I have had exactly the same experience, including the irritability, avoidance, etc. I so admire your acknowledging your detail phobia. You inspire me to take action, also!

    Thank you!

  6. Frank – You can do it! You are doing it! And what a gift to us all.

    The coaching sessions still resonate with me every day, and I don’t expect that to end any time soon. You planted the seeds, and my buddy Mikey aggressively waters them regularly. Like the wise man said, “Chance favors the prepared mind” (Pastuer?). And when the conditons are right, great things happen. There is no turing back now. You know what I mean. I’m very grateful. You are the best.

  7. This is another wonderful sharing of you. With that in mind the details fade into the pulses of the end result and you accomplish another great way of giving you and your gifts. Thank you for your smile and example. As we each move thru our trials it strenghtens all of us. Thankyou for daring to try yet another new experience. Your voice will always resonate in my mind – Smile and Breath.
    Best to you always.

  8. I love your writing and I am SO glad you love details, too. Isn’t it SO satisfying when it all comes together?!?!
    You made me smile and warmed my heart. I am so blessed by having you as my mentor and friend.

  9. Congratulations Coach! You are an inspiration to me and others. You know how to ‘walk your talk’. Thanks for sharing your own human struggles with life patterns. I have benefitted greatly from your coaching and teleclasses.
