The Good Stuff

The Good Stuff

Well, I think we've come to that wonderful part of the holiday season where we all need to give some serious thought to the stocking stuffers we're going to invest in this year.  I have to admit, I'm chuckling a little as I write that... What I mean is, now that "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" have both passed and most of us have secured the big ticket items we had on our Christmas lists, we need to turn our attention to those last minute purchases that can still be perceived as quality gifts, or at least take up the space around the [...]

Passion Play

Passion Play

If you're not living the life of your dreams right now, it's not because you don't know how! You've probably heard me say that before. The thing is...it's absolutely true. You have within yourself all of the necessary resources, talent, ability, and passion to live whatever life you want to live.  You just have to be willing to get started, stay focused, and be persistent.  If you will commit to do whatever it takes, you can literally have it all. That sounds like pretty hard work though, right? Well, maybe I can help you [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Living Within Yourself

Living Within Yourself

I wanted to share a couple of motivational poems with you that I really like. The first was written by Donna Levine and the second by Brian Tracy. Both of them speak about the ability each of us has within us to become the people that we were meant to be.  And by doing so, not only will we achieve our dreams and desires, but we will also make our journey the most wonderful and fulfilling adventure possible. Read them and see if they stir you to get started becoming the person you have always wanted to be.  After all, it's never too [...]

Blog Challenged

Blog Challenged

It happens to the best of us.  We hit walls. I have sort of run headlong into one here recently as it relates to the Blog Challenge that I am currently involved in. From a sheer numbers standpoint, after this post, I will officially need to post 13 more times in the next 48 hours or so in order to "finish" the challenge...not an easy task!  I did manage to post 19 different times in one 24 hour period once...but that was a little nuts.  And for  some reason, I had ideas flowing through me that entire day.  You know, the sun and the [...]

How’s Your ‘Tude?

How’s Your ‘Tude?

You've heard "attitude is everything", right?  Well, consider this twist, which is equally true:  Everything is attitude. This past weekend I was with my family at Universal Studios in Hollywood and we had an absolute blast!  As you might imagine, we pretty much have a blast no matter what we're doing.  And I guess that's sort of the point I'm trying to make.  Everything we do in my family has a whole lot to do with our 'tudes! Your life can be incredibly fun, depending on what kind of attitude you bring to it. In fact, two [...]

Don’t Put This Off!

Don’t Put This Off!

I've been in a few conversations lately where the topic of procrastination has come up.  It is a very popular topic, and it seems to be something that everyone battles at one time or another.  In fact, I'm sure there are some who struggle with constantly. Last year, I wrote an e-book titled, Stop Procrastinating Now, and I can tell you that the feedback I have received from those who have read it, is that it made all the difference in the world for them.  If procrastination has ever reared it's ugly head on your life, then 'd love for [...]

Some Wise Words

Some Wise Words

There are a whole bunch of motivational poems that have been passed down through the years.  Some of them are extremely well written and will almost surely inspire you every time you read them.  There are many  that I run across which I feel the need to read over and over, soaking up the wisdom and inspiration that they offer. You've probably heard me say many times before, that when you read a great poem, it's really important to take the time to reflect on what you have read.  Think about the meaning behind the words and challenge [...]

Good Choices

Good Choices

I love to remind people that the best part about a bad day is that they don't have to have one.  Sounds a little nuts, I know...but hear me out. Good days or  bad days are both the result of the choices that we make about them, before they ever start.  You and I are the masters of our own attitudes. We can make the conscious decision to have a good day, and we can do it each and every day if we want to.  And as such, we really don't have to experience a bad day unless that is something we decide you want to experience.  Okay, it's [...]
