Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more

Maybe Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more

I came across a great quote the other day that was attributed to Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States.  I liked it so much that I posted it on Facebook (the sincerest form of flattery in our continuously-expanding social media world), and a whole bunch of folks indicated they loved it, too. Coolidge said, "Christmas is not a time nor season, but a state of mind.  To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas". The quote really got my attention because I've heard so [...]

Your Holiday List

Your Holiday List

I thought I would post an e-mail that I sent out last Monday to the folks who follow my "Inspiration In Your Inbox" on a weekly basis.  Partly because I want to share with you the kind of notes that go out each week to everyone who is part of the Habitual Victory family, but mostly because I had a lot of positive feedback from the people who read it and then applied some of the suggestions.  I definitely wanted to make sure you had a chance to check this one out, and I hope it helps you find a little more magic in this wonderful and [...]

What’s Cooking With You?

What’s Cooking With You?

Clarity of purpose may be the single most important part of your personal formula for success. Without question, it is where you have to start if you are ever going to achieve extraordinary results. You truly have to know what it is you are seeking, and where it is you are going before you can begin to apply any of the principles that will help you get there. I'd like to share with you an excerpt from my last book in case you haven't read it yet, and my desire is that it will give you a fresh perspective on why clarity and focus are [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

New Plan

New Plan

One of my favorite quotes from the last few years comes from the wonderful world of sports.  More specifically, the wonderful world of mixed martial arts. I like the quote because it applies to life just as succinctly as it applies to fighting in the UFC. The quote is from Mirko Cro Cop, and he said it before one of his fights about a year or so ago.  It was played on TV during one of those well edited segments that show both fighters trash-talking about each other before the fight is broadcast.  Cro Cop was responding to one of his [...]

It’s in the “Can”

It’s in the “Can”

I'd like to suggest that you remove a word from your vocabulary. The word is "can't". My kids know that the word "can't" is not acceptable in our house.  And they love it.  You should make it unacceptable in your house, too.  Kids or not.  We decided to throw it out years ago and I will tell you it has made a tremendous difference in all of our attitudes and self confidence.  When you shift your perspective from focusing on the way you may have always done things (or not done things) and start to see that possibilities exist all [...]

The Difference Is You

The Difference Is You

What will you do to make a difference? How can you have an impact? I think the challenge for most people when it comes to doing or creating something big is simply trying to imagine themselves having any significant impact on the world when they are just one single person and can only do one small thing at a time. In our fast food culture, where we want instant results and are striving to meet the what have you done for me lately expectations, it's real easy to forget that even the most important and outstanding accomplishments all [...]

Your Great Life

Your Great Life

Somewhere in the middle of the family's Wii bowling tournament the other night, I found myself overwhelmed with thankfulness.  Maybe it was when I rolled two strikes in the 10th frame assuring me of a win in game one.  (They all took turns beating me after that).  Well, actually in that moment I felt relief...the thankful part came when I paused to really soak up all of the things that were going on around me. It's always a good time around the kids when everyone is laughing and having fun.  It has a way of allowing me to let go of [...]

Those Things You Do

Those Things You Do

Did you ever wonder if your random acts of kindness, good deeds, smiles or friendly words have any significant or lasting affect on the world around you? I think it's pretty important for you to know that even the slightest action taken, in the right spirit and with the proper intention, absolutely does. You may not see the direct result of it manifest itself immediately.  In fact, it may cause wonderful things to happen that end up as circumstances or opportunities in your life you would never in a million years relate back to that one [...]

Go and Keep Going

Go and Keep Going

I found another really good motivational poem today and I couldn't help myself...I had to post it! Of all of the traits that seem common to the most successful people in the world, persistence seems to be the one that actually gets things done.  Anytime I have the opportunity to talk to someone about their goals I will tell them that they can achieve whatever they set their minds and heart on if they will commit to not quitting.  Ever.  It is as tried and true a process as there is in the universe. So I found this short but very [...]
