As a producer for many of the shows on, I have the luxury of learning first hand from many of our hosts.  Today I want to give a very special shout out to Candace Pollock from “The Intentionality Gurus.”  Candace states she is a guru (and you can be too) if you open your body, mind, and soul and begin to think and perform intentionally.  You can find the guru in you!  The dictionary defines guru as “a spiritual teacher, especially one who imparts initiation.”  The initiation in the case of personal coaching is to “begin the action of something.”   We all want to be at our best, but we often get stuck in who we are at the moment and assume we cannot change, or if we change it may not result in success.

Candace is a certified life coach, and her mission is to guide you (me) to holistically grow our wisdom.  There is not a level of intelligence that we reach that identifies our apex; our brains are capable of continuous learning and change if we accept the challenge to achieve what we may want but believe (those limiting thoughts) we cannot reach.


My father’s favorite poem (or at least one he recited to my brothers and me repeatedly through the years), was “It Couldn’t be Done.”  This poem teaches you; It Can be Done!

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,

     But he with a chuckle replied

That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one

     Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.

So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin

     On his face. If he worried he hid it.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;

     At least no one ever has done it”;

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,

     And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

     Without any doubting or quiddit,

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

     That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,

     There are thousands to prophesy failure;

There are thousands to point out to you one by one,

     The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

     Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing

     That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.
