The Thrill of Victory

The Thrill of Victory

Here's what I think... If people were as passionate about their lives and their own success as they are their favorite sports teams, we could not only change the world, but we could transform it into something totally amazing. Passion is a very powerful thing. Now, I'll confess something to you; I'm an absolute sports fanatic.  I love sports.  I love football, basketball, baseball, and hockey.  College and pro.  I love mixed martial arts, boxing, and even tennis.  I enjoy watching my favorite teams or players in action, live or [...]

Pourquoi pas yous?

Pourquoi pas yous?

There are people out there living the life of their dreams.  Their lives are amazing and they are passionate about each day.  They are people just  like you.  Are you one of them?  No? Well, pardon my French but...why the hell not? Before you get mad at me for that stinging little question, let me assure you that I don't ask it to be a smart mouth.  I'm not trying to insult you either.  I really mean it in the most constructive possible way. I want you to know that you are capable of achieving anything in this life that you have [...]

Starting Point

Starting Point

I was having a great conversation the other day with someone about achieving success at a very high level in life. We talked about the diversity of all the people who have achieved mammoth success in this life.  Some have been college grads and other dropped out of high school; some have been women and some have been men;  some have come from money and some from poverty.  Indeed if you go digging, you'll find that there aren't many similarities on the surface when you start to compare the successful people throughout history. There [...]

You Talkin’ To Me?

You Talkin’ To Me?

The conversations that you have with yourself may be some of the most important that you ever engage in. I know that sounds kinda funny, especially since we often equate talking to ourselves with being a little nutty. We tend not to think too much about the things we say under our breath, or the things we say to ourselves about ourselves when we do something that we might consider less than terrific.  But I believe it's wise to listen to these conversations we're having, some of them taking place rather quietly in our heads, and it's [...]

Lose the Jacket!

Lose the Jacket!

Comfort zones are sort of like straitjackets for the soul. I just made that one up.  But if you think about it, it's true... There's nothing more confining and limiting than remaining in the same spot in life, doing the same things, and being the same person, over and over and over.  And all because it's comfortable. The classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, right?  And of course, the classic fashion statement for the insane person is the straitjacket.  At [...]

Make Time for Play Time

Make Time for Play Time

I heard a great commercial on the radio today.  So great that I couldn't wait to get home tonight and blog about it! It was talking about taking better care of ourselves as adults, and how we might stay younger much longer.  The advice was some of the best I've ever heard.  It recommended that we take a cue from our children, and...are you ready for this?  Get out and play! That's right, the advice for all of us grown ups was to lighten up, get out there and have some freakin' fun!  It talked about how good we would feel if we threw [...]

Believe it or Not

Believe it or Not

I heard someone say the other day that there are really only three possible answers to anyone's genuine prayer.  They said the answer is either "Yes", "Not Yet", or "There's Something Even Better". I really think that's the best way I had ever heard this concept described.  I think it's exactly right.  And its also incredibly empowering. No matter your perspective on prayer or asking, you have to love the idea that is being presented here.  It seems to echo the Biblical principle that you will receive whatever you ask for, if you [...]

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

"So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains, And we never even know we have the key" - lyrics from "Already Gone" by The Eagles One of the most liberating things you can ever do for yourself is acknowledge that you, and you alone, are ultimately responsible for your life. It can be like the wake up call that starts the most incredible day of your life. And the day that starts the journey toward everything you have ever dreamed of... This is not to say that there haven't been many influences on you, or that [...]

True Sight

True Sight

I found a pretty cool poem while I was exploring online today and figured I would post it for you to read.  Actually, the poem sort of found me. It's funny how focusing on a particular topic will often draw aspects of that topic to you.  Whether it be in written form, a sign by the road, a picture or maybe a meaningful conversation with someone, if you are truly focused on something, you are, in a very real way, attracting it to yourself. I've been thinking a lot lately about how precious life really is, and how appreciating life with [...]
