You Are Here…Today

You Are Here…Today

I found myself quiet this morning...which isn't always an easy thing to pull off on a Thursday...and in that quiet and still place, I became lost in a thought.  The thought itself was simple enough; life is a gift.  However, the more I thought about it, the more I became inspired to reflect on an extraordinary benfit to this great gift from God.  And that is, the unique opportunity each of us has, every single day, and for as long as we draw breath, to invent and reinvent.  And really what I mean is, the chance to reinvent [...]

The Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards!

The Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards!

Alright, I'm going to kick off a little 2013 pay-it-forward fun by passing out some cyber-hardware.  I will be naming my choices for the first ever Habitual Victory "Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards". By naming the winners, I'm also recommending these outstanding blogs to YOU, as I believe they will help you in all kinds of amazing ways.  The bloggers involved are wonderful people who I respect and fully endorse.  And they're also some really cool cats!  Yes, being cool was a big factor for me, as I was determining who the first 10 [...]

It’s Time to Travel Light

It’s Time to Travel Light

How's your stress level? If you're like the rest of us, you could probably afford to let go of some of the stress in your life. I've got a tip that I think will make all the difference in the world for you, but it's going to require you to change the way you think a little bit.  I know, changing anything doesn't really sound like much fun at first, but I assure you the payoff will be beyond fantastic.  Besides, if you keep doing what you're doing...you'll keep getting what you got. So are you ready to try to shake things up a bit [...]

Sharp Axes

Sharp Axes

"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax" - Abraham Lincoln There's an analogy I love to use when I'm talking to people about continuously working on their craft, and why it's so important that they never stop.  And whether you're a salesperson, an actor, a business owner, a stay at home mom, or anything else, I hope you can learn from this one. Think about the World Series.  The match up between the two best baseball teams in all of the major leagues.  These are some of the absolute best [...]

Beyond the Plateau

Beyond the Plateau

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts" - John Wooden Ask most personal trainers in the gym about the value of cardio and they'll tell you it's essential to good health.  Most will say that at least 30 minutes of exercise a day is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and prolonging your life.  Ask them what makes the cardio most effective and they'll probably say something like, "that 15 minutes longer" than the 30 minutes a day you're doing is where you really make a difference for yourself. The push up after the [...]

Hey, Are You Alive?

Hey, Are You Alive?

"The real question is not whether life exists after death. The real question is whether you are alive before death"  Where are you living? No, I don't mean your address...I mean where are you really living your life?  In the past, in the present, or in the future? Truthfully, we tend to live in all three of those places, at least some of the time. For example, it's really easy to get caught up in memories, great ones or bad ones, and it's also easy to get stuck there.  Sort of like a brain freeze, just picturing the events that [...]

A Little Magic

A Little Magic

Are you ready for a challenge?  It's not a ridiculously hard one, and it's not one that will take you more than 48 hours...but it's one that has a really cool payoff.  Are you interested? Okay...try this little experiment for two days. Whoever you interact with; at home, at work, at the grocery store, in church, at school, on the street corner, or wherever...interact with kindness and love in your heart.  Look for the goodness in every single person that you speak with.  Greet everyone with a smile, and make sure you say something [...]

Eviction Notice

Eviction Notice

It's that time of the year, people...out with the old and in with the new! So let's get 2013 started the right way. If you're harboring any bitterness or anger or even hatred inside yourself because of something some numb skull did to you at the office, or maybe because of some silly comment your sister made about you in public...it's time to cut it loose.  The old stuff has simply got to go. It's easy to take on the responsibility of lugging around negative thoughts and bad feelings.  In fact, it almost feels like your duty when [...]
