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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

You’ll Achieve Whatever You Believe

You’ll Achieve Whatever You Believe

Nobody knows you quite like you know you. And nobody believes you like you believe yourself. So how are you really doing in life and what do you think about it? When I talk to people about their potential, I often bring up the fact that they know far more about what they are capable of than I do.  I can guess and I can talk to them about goals for achievement, but I don't have the ability to look inside and see what truly drives and motivates them or what thoughts and beliefs they possess about their own capacity for success.  And [...]

Road Warrior

Road Warrior

Imagine this: You want to go to Florida from California by car, so you plan a trip across the country.  You have always wanted to do this and you are at the point in your life where nothing else matters to you.  In spite of being a little scared of the unknown, you are extremely confident and motivated.  You have a map that gives you a pretty good idea of how to get there, money in your pocket for gas, and a cooler full of Mountain Dew (or some other form of stimulus to keep you awake for a long period of time).  At this point it's time [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 3

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 3

Talent is that certain something that every one of us is born with.  It’s a little different for each, because we are totally unique as individuals. Our kids are talented.  They have natural ability and aptitude that they were born to share.  It’s our job to help them in the pursuit of their extraordinary lives. A really big part of what we can do with our kids to get them headed in the right direction is to observe those things that they are gravitating toward, and those things which they seem to have a “knack” for.  [...]
