It was one of the most painful moments of my life.

This is how being "stuck" feels to me. 

This is how being "stuck" feels to me. 

I’d finally gotten published, after a decade of effort, and my collection of short stories had been released to the public. Four months later, I slammed my laptop’s screen down.
It was late spring and I was living in a converted barn, where my desk overlooked the downward green slope of grass of a 40-acre horse farm, with the snow-capped Rockies in the distance. It was beautiful, but all I saw was the closed computer. 
I was stuck. I’d never been stuck before in my life – at least not with writing. It had always come to me easily and naturally, but no more. Months had passed, and nothing had changed. Was I the literary equivalent of a one-hit wonder?
I sought help from a mentor, and he said the words that changed everything: What it took to get published isn’t what it’s going to take to move forward. It’s time to look at your work with entirely new eyes. I did, and within a few days words were spilling into my computer once again. 
When we get stuck, it can make us doubt the path, question ourselves, or most dangerously, turn back before we’ve finished our journey.
In the last six months, I’ve worked with over a dozen people — helping them move through the places they’re stuck and into the next great chapter of their lives.

Past clients have …

  • Created a web presence that reflects them and their strengths, speaks to their audience, and makes them money (put the client’s needs first)
  • Become better leaders and visionaries by dropping the outdated idea that got them where they are (because visionaries aren’t worker bees)
  • Created better boundaries between work and life so they can bring their best to both (poor boundaries will always mean poorer performance)
  • Understood their real gifts and then put them to use (not always what they thought they were)
  • Turned their most critical internal voices into their biggest champions (because those voices had more wisdom then they could have imagined)  
  • Uncovered their natural motivation (so there is almost limitless energy to push through to the next thing)  
  • Defined how they will know when they’ve been successful (because seeing and celebrating wins is as important as defining goals) 

The Beauty of Being Stuck  

I’ve shared quite a bit in the last few weeks about my own strugglestriumphs, insights, and (very) humbling experiences. My life hasn’t always been easy, and I’ve been stuck as much as just about anyone.
Like you, I had the dream of being more than I was, and set out to achieve some pretty difficult things.

The Truth of Some of my “Wins”  

==> I’m now an award-winning author with three books in print, and another on the way.
(But this took ten years and three-hundred rejections.)
==> I’m running a successful business that harnesses all of my skills into a single place.
(But this took turning my back on what I’d done professionally for almost 20 years.)
==> My Shaolin Kung Fu teacher, Master Jong Joon Heon, elevated me to a master in November 2014 — the first and only student of his to achieve this.
(But this took getting thrown out of his school at the height of my training.)
==> I’ve been ordained a Zen priest and authorized to teach Mondo Zen, which Ken Wilber said, “…[is] highly recommended for the accelerated effect it has on growth and development."
(But this took surrendering to the wisdom and the power of a teacher, and a lineage.)  

I share this for four reasons:

  1. I know what it’s like to have big dreams … and hit even bigger obstacles on the path to realizing them.
  2. I know what it feels like to get stuck in life, business, and inside your own ambition.  
  3. I can move you from where you are to where you want to be — without wasting months or years spinning your wheels or heading in the wrong direction.  
  4. These are tools I’ve used in my own life, and in the lives of my clients. They work. They’re powerful. And they’re simple.

“When I called Keith I was discouraged and uncertain if anyone would ever be able to help translate the abstract and theoretical vision of The Life Chart in a comprehendible way. I wanted it to touch real people in the real world. I almost gave up on finding a way to communicate my message to the world; now I have a website and content I’m proud to share.” — Bill Wilder, Creator of The Life Chart

“What allows Keith to stand apart is he floats fluently between constructive analysis of your work, and your more spiritual and psychological personality traits that are at play. With the perfect balance of holding to the agenda and creating the space for what arises, you know that each hour with him will bring you huge leaps forward.” — Katherine Armstrong,. Founder and Owner of The OM Collection
