The Difference Is You

The Difference Is You

What will you do to make a difference? How can you have an impact? I think the challenge for most people when it comes to doing or creating something big is simply trying to imagine themselves having any significant impact on the world when they are just one single person and can only do one small thing at a time. In our fast food culture, where we want instant results and are striving to meet the what have you done for me lately expectations, it's real easy to forget that even the most important and outstanding accomplishments all [...]

Your Great Life

Your Great Life

Somewhere in the middle of the family's Wii bowling tournament the other night, I found myself overwhelmed with thankfulness.  Maybe it was when I rolled two strikes in the 10th frame assuring me of a win in game one.  (They all took turns beating me after that).  Well, actually in that moment I felt relief...the thankful part came when I paused to really soak up all of the things that were going on around me. It's always a good time around the kids when everyone is laughing and having fun.  It has a way of allowing me to let go of [...]

Uncover Your Fears

Uncover Your Fears

Limitations are like The Boogeyman, they only exist if we believe in them. In fact, if we would refuse to acknowledge any limitations in our lives, we could do anything we wanted to do.  We would literally amaze and astound ourselves. Quite often however, because of our own limiting beliefs, instead of being astounding, we end up paralyzed by fear.  And we don't make any significant progress in our lives.  We don't dare challenge ourselves and we don't even come close to pushing our boundaries or expanding our experiences.  Very much [...]

Has LOA left you DOA?

Has LOA left you DOA?

The law of attraction gets a lot of press these days. It's a principle of nature that has existed since the beginning of time, at least as far as any of us can tell, but it really seems to have grown in popularity over the past few years. The law basically operates like this: Your life is the result of your most dominant thought patterns.  Like attracts like and so whatever you focus on most (consciously or subconsciously) is what is attracted to you.  You also become attracted to it.  Sounds pretty simple on the surface, right?  And [...]

Those Things You Do

Those Things You Do

Did you ever wonder if your random acts of kindness, good deeds, smiles or friendly words have any significant or lasting affect on the world around you? I think it's pretty important for you to know that even the slightest action taken, in the right spirit and with the proper intention, absolutely does. You may not see the direct result of it manifest itself immediately.  In fact, it may cause wonderful things to happen that end up as circumstances or opportunities in your life you would never in a million years relate back to that one [...]

Give To Live

Give To Live

Life has an amazing way of rewarding you based on the effort you put into it. Thomas Jefferson had a great quote which I have kept at my desk for years.  He said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it".  Over time I sort of paraphrased for TJ and usually end up telling people, "the harder you work, the luckier you'll get". Same principle, of course. And the really miraculous part of this universal axiom is that you usually end up receiving much more than you actually give.  Or at the very [...]

What You Do Next

What You Do Next

The late John Wooden said a lot of things over the years that I absolutely loved.  He was such a principled man and had such discipline and conviction, he was hard not to admire.  If you listen to the people that were around him the most, they were all so touched and inspired by this man it's hard not to think of him as one of the most influential people who ever lived.  Especially in the sports world. He had one particular saying that I have referenced over the years and used to motivate myself at the times in my life when I have seemed [...]
