Road Warrior

Road Warrior

Imagine this: You want to go to Florida from California by car, so you plan a trip across the country.  You have always wanted to do this and you are at the point in your life where nothing else matters to you.  In spite of being a little scared of the unknown, you are extremely confident and motivated.  You have a map that gives you a pretty good idea of how to get there, money in your pocket for gas, and a cooler full of Mountain Dew (or some other form of stimulus to keep you awake for a long period of time).  At this point it's time [...]

Potentially Amazing

Potentially Amazing

How far do you think you can go in life?  What awesome thing do you think you can achieve?  What is your true potential? I read a quote today attributed to Zig Ziglar and it said this, "You are the only person on earth who can use your ability". Did you get that?  YOU are the only person who can use YOUR ability!  It's a great quote, and I'm tucking it in my mental file somewhere between "Use it or lose it" and "No one else is going to do it for you". It also got me to thinking about how each one of us, as individuals, are really [...]

The Law of Attraction Made “Easy”

The Law of Attraction Made “Easy”

Anytime that someone promises to make something sound easy for you, it usually means one of only two things; either it’s really, really hard and they’re just trying to soften the blow or it’s not being explained often enough in such a way that it can be understood and practiced effectively. In the case of the law of attraction, it is the latter scenario that prompted this writing. While there is a lot of information out there that certainly can benefit you regarding the law of attraction  if you can get your hands on it, there is [...]

Tune Up Time?

Tune Up Time?

Have you ever waited too long to fix something? Maybe you pulled into Jiffy Lube the other day and they told you it looked like you hadn't changed the oil in your car for over 15,000 miles...or maybe you finally got around to cleaning out the refrigerator in the garage this weekend only to realize that there were leftovers in there from your neighborhood Christmas Party in 2007... A bad haircut?  That squeaky noise the air conditioner makes?  The leak coming from the floor in the upstairs bathroom?  Or, worst of all...your [...]

What a Character!

What a Character!

The dictionary defines a person's character as "the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing". You may have hears this little diddy somewhere along the way as well; "Sow a thought and you reap an act; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny" Charles Reade is credited with that saying, and I think it's a very good one and full of truth.  It really outlines for us the things that we need to be mindful of, as it pertains to [...]

The Time is Now

The Time is Now

"Tired of lying in the sunshine,  Staying home to watch the rain, You are young and life is long,  And there is time to kill today, And then one day you find ten years have gone behind you, No one told you when to run,  You missed the starting gun..." - lyrics from "Time" by Pink Floyd Ask any group of professionals what their biggest challenges are on the job and they will likely list "time management" in the top three. Ask someone who works for themselves what one of the toughest issues is for them on a daily basis [...]

The Faith Of A Child

The Faith Of A Child

Can you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up?  Maybe you're still trying to figure that out... Do you remember what it felt like though, as a child, to imagine what it was you wanted to be?  And here's an even more powerful question:  When did you stop believing in that dream? There is really no faith like the faith of a child.  A child believes that they can have, be or do anything they want.  All that is required is an imagination.  And, like Einstein said, it takes them everywhere! So what happens to us when we [...]

Oops…I Did It Again

Oops…I Did It Again

"Anyone who has never failed has never tried anything new" - Albert Einstein "Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly" - Robert Kennedy Mistakes get a bad rap in our culture, don't you think?  I mean everyone is really down on mistakes!  And why is this? Mistakes are really only a bad thing if you don't learn from them.  I think they should be looked upon a little more positively.   Maybe it's just the feeling that we associate with the word itself.  It sort of makes us cringe, almost like there is an [...]

Whatever You Do…Don’t Do This!

Whatever You Do…Don’t Do This!

I have been fortunate enough to talk with many successful people in my life so far and I have had the chance to ask them how they achieved the biggest goals in their own lives.  In fact, it has been a quest of mine for the better part of the last 20 years to compile as much information about success and how it is achieved as I possibly could.  That research has become the backbone of  a book that I am currently in the process of writing. I am going to let one of the big secrets of success out though, right here in this little ol' [...]

Any Idea How Powerful Your Thoughts Are?

Any Idea How Powerful Your Thoughts Are?

If you were to see your mind as a perfect creative force, bringing into physical existence all of those things that you consistently focused on, would it change the way you think? You have probably heard the phrase, "garbage in, garbage out" applied to the mind of man.  It was a phrase used in early days of computer science eluding to the fact that computers will process whatever information you put into them, and correspondingly spit out a result based on that information.  So, if you put nonsensical data in, you would get nonsensical [...]

Laugh Or The World Laughs At You!

Laugh Or The World Laughs At You!

Have you ever noticed that when you're in a crummy frame of mind things just keep happening to you to sustain that mood? It's like God or the Universe has this really funky and warped sense of humor. Here's the scenario:  You wake up in a bad mood and as you get out of bed you feel your back twitch.  "Oh, perfect!" you say to yourself with a full batch of sarcasm...then you get in the shower and drop the soap, repeatedly...now your back really hurts, you're mad at the soap and off you go to go grab some breakfast before you rush out [...]
