This is where I get to introduce myself to you – if you are looking for my Speaker and Presenter Profile, Click Here.
I am a psychologist. I started into school thinking that I would become an engineer, in fact I was a chemical engineering major when I started at BYU way back in 1984. I figured I could make some money using all of those sweet math and science skills that came pretty easily to me. I chose to become a psychologist when I realized that I have a passion for assisting others to live their life on purpose. There is far too much negativity, fear, and doubt in the world. I am on a mission to lift and inspire my fellow human beings to create and live a life they love. When I made the shift to psychology, I found out quickly that not only do I have a love and passion for what I do, I’m also really good at it. When I do my thing, people’s lives are changed for the better. I don’t say this to brag, but to acknowledge that I am in my element. I believe that everyone has a “sweet spot” or a “unique mission” in life, and your sweet spot is when you do what you love for the people who love what you do. I also believe that you have the ability to create a life around your unique mission which has a two-fold effect: First, you begin to love your life – Second, you generate wealth. Some people have commented to me, “Dr. Paul, you are so lucky to have a job that you love!” Lucky??! I made this.
I am a man of faith. I make no apologies for this because it is my faith that gives meaning and context to everything that I do. Those who work with me are perfectly welcomed and encouraged to include discussions about faith and the role that it plays in their life. I’m not here to impose my beliefs on others, and I’m not here as your spiritual advisor. I do believe, however, that our relationship with our creator is the first key relationship we have, and that as we understand our source, life begins to make more sense. I’m happy to share my faith and beliefs with anyone who asks – feel free to ask me about this or get a quick summary here.
In addition to my unique mission and my faith, the love of my life is that sweet lady in the picture with me. Vicki and I were married in 1988 and it just keeps getting better. We have four wonderful children – Ryan, Adam, Brennan, and Lyndi. We have made our home in the beautiful mountains of Utah. I think the best is yet to come!

Journaling is a powerful and valuable tool to help you discover your purpose uncovering what it is you really want in life and what you want to accomplish. The kind of journaling used in harmony with your LifeVision is not a “diary” of entries that typically would include things like I did this or, I saw that, or I went here, or I talked to… nor is it a history for someone else to read.
Because we live in a fast paced world, we find it difficult to stop and spend quality time pondering the vision of our ideal self, our path, and our purpose. It is easy to get mindlessly caught up in life and in responsibilities and in deadlines, there never seems to be enough time to do it all.
In addition, over our lifetime we may have formed habits and expectations based on what others think we should be doing or who we should be. Well-meaning people such as parents or spouses or friends may be convinced that they know what is best for you and what will make you happy. Journaling can be the first step to self-discovery. Within the writings of your journal you can envision and then articulate your most ideal self and your most ideal life.
