50 Years in the Blink of an Eye

September 4, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

As I reflected Sunday on my 50th birthday and how the first 50 years of my life have gone, I thought about a book I read several years ago called Halftime, authored by Bob Buford. In his book, he shares how we can look at our lives in two parts. The first part is our striving for success and being all about ourselves, and the second part is about living a life of significance.

Slow Down to Speed Up: Contemplative Prayer and Clearing the Mind

June 29, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

Most of us go through our days checking off things we had set out to do when the day began and very seldom think about the day itself. We are doers.

I recently went to an event in San Diego called “Peak Experience.” It’s an annual event where approximately 500 real estate agents get together for a personal growth experience.

April 3, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

You’ve heard the expression, “I ate a piece of humble pie”? Basically, when you’ve been humbled, that’s what you were served. It never tastes good, but its benefits are priceless. In fact, a little bit of humility is one of the greatest gifts we can receive. Because humility is borne from humiliation, it never feels or tastes good when we are served it, but the challenge is to ingest it and take it as a gift. But can we be grateful for the taste of humble pie when we receive it? […]

The Real Reason Why Some People Excel More Than Others

March 1, 2017 Posted by: Rob Commodari

I recently had a conversation with a group of business people and the topic of discussion was why some people excel to a greater degree than others. Is it talent or know-how or training or a gift? Those are all helpful assets to have when trying to excel, but the reason why some people succeed to a greater degree than others comes from something more basic than that.
