Parrish Taylor

Parrish Taylor has played several roles for me for the past 15 years. I’m grateful for our friendship.

Parrish is a trainer. It’s who he is. He’s trained in corporations and on the field. We met when he was still in the advertising and development industry. We built one of the first Learning Management Systems (LMS) back in 2002-ish. It was a fun experience.

Fast forward to 2015, Parrish is on his own and now working with athletes, corporations and now police officers. He’s training them on how to manage the “chatter” or “voice in your head” that leads you to a victory or defeat in your life. If you can imagine, between the different examples, there are similarities because stress is still a factor and how you deal with it is key.

He introduced me to a new, a better packaged, version of maturity. Because “Maturity Matters”. Helping him with his website¬†and marketing, sitting in on his lectures, (I even acted as camera man on occasion). Learning about the 6 cylinders and how important it is to balance them was near the beginning of my journey.

Studying Daniel Goleman‘s material was just the start. Emotional Intelligence is everywhere. Parrish’s goal is to make sure people are as successful as possible in their individual lives as they navigate the variables. The idea is to “seek peace“.

I am a Student of Life currently living in India with my wife and son. I am interested in philosophy, discussions of life and how to make it better as we learn, individually, how to lead ourselves. We're waking up, and our mindset is changing. We need to increase our perspectives in order to become more tolerant and eventually more loving toward all life. The skeptics that would bawk at ideas of communities of people living in peace, choosing to "work" for themselves as a means for a "living" instead of profit and consumerism, simply means they aren't at the same level of understanding and aren't surrounded by an environment or others that would support those ideals. My proposal is for more people to leave their comfortable lives and conveniences and increase their time in nature. Reconnect with that which we are. My goal is in "being" not in "having"
