Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety

Interviewing for a job can one of the more stressful experiences in your life.  The good news is, it really doesn’t have to be. I have been asked by lots of good people over the years to take a peek at their resumes in order to give my opinion and help where I could.  Of course this is something that I have always been willing to do. I’m certainly not billing myself as the Resume Guru of the World…but I have had the opportunity to interview hundreds of people over the years, mostly for sales positions with varying requirement [...]

So What Do You Think?

So What Do You Think?

The poem at the end of this post is one of my all time favorites.  It is credited to Walter D. Wintle.  I remember reading it as a kid on a plaque that my father had on the wall of his office.  At the time, I just thought it sounded cool , and didn’t really grasp the full meaning.  But something inside me let me know that it was special, so it stayed with me. Years later, after reading books like Napoleon Hill’s classic "Think and Grow Rich", I really started to appreciate the absolute truth contained in this piece.  I have shared [...]

Imagine That…or This

I was hanging out with my kids the other night and we were talking about all sorts of cool stuff.  We were laughing and having a wonderful time, as we often do in our crazy household.

Try this little exercise – think about the concept of being the best for a moment - what feelings comes over you or what pictures pop into your head? I imagine when most people think about being the best, thoughts of Michael Jordan or Oprah Winfrey or Robert DeNiro immediately manifest in their minds and they think something like, “I could never be like them. Well, I could, but only if…(fill in one of 1,001 excuses here).” It feels pretty [...]

Dare to be Happy

Dare to be Happy

You want happiness?  Then be happy! One of the greatest discoveries you can make in all of life is that you are fully capable of being happy at any time and in any place just by deciding to be.  I often tell people to become conscious of their thoughts and feelings and if they don’t like them…simply change them.  Of course, just as often I get that “you must be crazy” look back from them. But it’s true - You can become more positive right now, wherever you are just by making the decision to be. Literally, it only takes a [...]
