Two Things You Can Do

Two Things You Can Do

Life is a gift. And as far as I can tell, we should be savoring as much of it as possible while we're here.  So, how are you doing? If you answered with anything other than totally awesome, here are two quick suggestions that will help you start getting the most out of each and every day. 1. Do something you're passionate about every single day. Whatever it is, take the time to do it.  It could be spending time with your family or friends, cooking a fabulous meal, reading a book, running around the block, listening to a piece of [...]

No Regrets

No Regrets

"Running through the changes, going through the stages, Coming round the corners in my life, Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late, Waiting for the moon to say goodnight. And I could cry for the time I've wasted, But that's a waste of time and tears, And I know just what I'd change if I went back in time somehow, But there's nothing I can do about it now" -lyrics from "Nothing I Can Do About It Now" by Beth Nielsen-Chapman Willie Nelson sings that song and it's one of my all time favorites.  I [...]

Possibly Anything

Possibly Anything

I sometimes find myself searching the internet for motivational or inspirational poems that I can share with you here.  Tonight I found one that's pretty cool, and which I had never read before.  It's attributed to that world famous author we've all come to know and love, Unknown.  Sometimes it's better that way, since you never really know if the right person is getting credit for saying wonderful things. Regardless of who wrote it, the words are certainly inspirational.  And I hope that they move you and motivate you to do something [...]

Take Two

Take Two

Okay, here are 2 things you should start doing every single day.  The payoff for you will far exceed the effort it takes to get started, and if you make these things habits, your life will be more amazing than you thought possible.  They're simple things, and yet they can add energy and meaning to every single day that you're around.  How cool does that sound?  It's true.  Here's the short list: 1. Laugh If you only get one thing from this post, make sure it's this one.  Take the time to laugh every single day. It really is the [...]

Get Really Good at Failing

Get Really Good at Failing

A lot of people think that failure is the opposite of success. It's not. Failure is actually a big part of success. In fact, without failure, it's likely that there will be no success. That might not make much sense if you're thinking of failure in terms of it being permanent. So I would challenge you to think of failure a little differently than you may have to this point. Failure is temporary, in the truest sense. It really only becomes permanent when you accept it as permanent and quit whatever it is you were doing. Failure should [...]

Let’s Get Something Clear

Let’s Get Something Clear

"And so castles made of sand fall in the sea...eventually" - Jimi Hendrix If you're going to build anything substantial, you need a solid foundation.  If you're going to achieve anything extraordinary, you need that foundation in the form of a clear vision. Having clarity of purpose is the first step to succeeding at anything in life.  It is the bedrock of any remarkable thing you will achieve.  Whether it's a project at the office or a life long dream...you have to be totally clear with your vision.  Clear as to where you are, and [...]

The Optimist Frowned

The Optimist Frowned

I was reading something the other day and some dude was writing about how the people who talk about positive thinking are all full of it because nobody can be positive all the time.  I guess if he has come across people who think you have to be positive all the time in order to be positive...he makes a good point. But, I thought his statements were a little off because not everyone who believes in the power of positive thinks you have to be positive all the time, every single minute in order to be a positive person. If you read my [...]

The One Thing That Changes Everything

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Life is what you make it. You can choose to be miserable or you can choose to be content. Regardless of what you have or don't have. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be upset. Regardless of the circumstances that you think are defining you. You can choose to sit on your butt and do nothing or you can choose to get out there and LIVE your life with passion and purpose. Your choice. No matter what. And that is the plain, no-BS, absolute, bottom line, truth of all truths. You get to choose how you take the [...]

Just Add E

Just Add E

Just add water. Are there three sweeter words in a "how to prepare" list anywhere on the planet?   I don't think so.  It's like magic! All you do is take the powdery stuff in the pouch, pour it into a bowl, and just add water.  You're home free. In this sense, water becomes even more amazing than you already thought it was.  It becomes the Super Ingredient that makes all of the other ingredients contained in their various cans, bags, and boxes come to life. What if I told you there a was a Super Ingredient for your life [...]

Three Steps to Achievment

Three Steps to Achievment

Accomplishing your goals really comes down to having a definitive plan and being able to execute it. In fact, one of the reasons that so many folks get sidetracked on their way to achieving their goals is that they don't have a plan at all.  Because a plan is so important, I wanted to share something meaningful with you that would have the greatest positive impact. So here are three steps that I have found to be incredibly effective in achieving anything you want in life: 1. Decide what it is you are trying to achieve Seems like a [...]
