Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 2

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 2

Worthiness is defined in the dictionary like this: "Having adequate or great merit; character, or value; of commendable excellence…deserving"   If you didn’t have a chance to read the previous post is this little series, check it out.  I wrote about how the first part of establishing positive self esteem in a child is in teaching them to believe in themselves. The second part of it is in teaching them to understand their worthiness. I think that this is very critical to understand and even more so to apply. I know a lot of [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 1

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 1

Let’s dive right in here, because this is exciting, awesome stuff! The starting point for ensuring that our children grow up with a true sense of positivity and confidence is building their self esteem.  It is the foundation for everything else that comes down the road.  It will give them an unwavering base, and a place to return to, no matter what circumstances unfold around them, throughout their lives. It can’t be stated enough…self esteem is critical. Esteem really breaks down into two parts; belief and confidence. I [...]

No News is Good News

No News is Good News

I tried something this past year, that I never would have imagined trying.  I stopped watching the news on television.  I also stopped listening to talk shows on the radio, unless they were related to sports (hey, we all have our vice). Now, to set this up, I used to watch cable news, local news, and I also listened to talk show after talk show on the radio.  I was a world news, local news, and political junkie.  And it was absolutely driving me nuts!  I would hang on the words of each talk show host, and feel frustrated when someone [...]

Judgment Call

Judgment Call

It's likely that there is no such thing as objective reality.  Okay, that was a little deep for the first sentence of the post, sorry about that, but hear me out... Each of us sees everything in life just a little differently.  It makes sense because we are all totally unique.  Everything we observe or experience, we do so with our own subjectivity.  Meaning that everything in life is truly subjective, or slightly different for all, depending on who the observer might be.  How does that sound?  Probably even more crazy... If you [...]

From A to B And All Points In Between

From A to B And All Points In Between

I had some business to tend to out of town the other day, so I took a trip on an airplane.  I have traveled quite a bit over the years for business, and I have done a little for pleasure as well.  I enjoy it for the most part, although it usually leaves me a little tired and weary at the end of the day. It did occur to me though, that one of the coolest parts about traveling is how you can start the day, for example, having breakfast in New York City and end the day with your head on your pillow, home sweet home, somewhere in [...]

Talent That Works

Talent That Works

I heard something that was pretty profound last night as I was watching the Ultimate Fighting Championship's UFC 107 event on television.  I am a fan of martial arts, and have grown fond of watching these MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) events.  It seems a little violent to some I know, and I also understand that it's not for everyone.  But to me, I truly enjoy watching the skill set of these athletes, as all of the world's fighting arts are put on full display.  It's a clash of cultures and styles, with opponents using everything from [...]

Lace ‘Em Up

Lace ‘Em Up

I love shoe commercials. Okay, I know you're laughing, but I'm serious.  They are truly some of the most inspiring 30 seconds of my life, taking place in those wonderful moments after somebody calls timeout in the game that I'm watching on TV.  They do tend to sneak up on me (no pun intended) but they also carry some really powerful messages. Now look, I'm not talking about the "buy one, get one half-off sale" at Payless Shoes commercials...I'm talking about Nike and Adidas type stuff.  The stuff that lights a fire inside of [...]

Do And It Shall Get Done

Do And It Shall Get Done

I was recently talking with a colleague of mine about what it takes to truly become successful.  You know, a nice, light conversation to end the week with... It was actually a great talk, which probably could have lasted for hours had it not been late on a Friday afternoon.  Our purpose was to try to figure out how much of anyone's success comes from the mental or metaphysical side, and how much of it comes from sound practice and good ol' fashioned "elbow grease".  Hey, we had 30 minutes to kill, and we're both "thinkers", so we [...]

Give Me An “E”

Give Me An “E”

Years ago I was giving a presentation to a room full of sales reps, whose performance I was ultimately responsible for.  The purpose of the meeting was to introduce myself as their new manager, talk about my philosophy and style, and then let them know what I expected of them.  Sounds fun, huh? I can tell you, having been both the presenter and the presentee in these types of meetings, they almost always leave everyone in the room feeling a little more stressed out than when they arrived.  Often, they accomplish very little, and usually [...]

Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety

Interviewing for a job can one of the more stressful experiences in your life.  The good news is, it really doesn’t have to be. I have been asked by lots of good people over the years to take a peek at their resumes in order to give my opinion and help where I could.  Of course this is something that I have always been willing to do. I’m certainly not billing myself as the Resume Guru of the World…but I have had the opportunity to interview hundreds of people over the years, mostly for sales positions with varying requirement [...]
