A Little Help

A Little Help

Help someone. Sounds pretty simple, right?  Well, in all honesty, it really is; but it's also one of the most meaningful deeds you will ever take on. Whether a person is stranded on the side of the road, looking for a certain section in the grocery store, needs assistance carrying a bag, has a question about how the process works at the DMV (by the way, let me know if you figure that one out), or maybe just needs someone to listen to their plight for a few minutes...the smallest gesture can have the greatest impact. Someone said that [...]

You’re Still the One

You’re Still the One

Would you really like to stand out from the crowd?  As a business owner, as a professional, or even as a person? Then here's a solid suggestion that will allow you to separate yourself from the status quo or your competition, and put you on a path to achieving amazing results in your life.  Are you ready for it?  Here it is: Be yourself. As simple as that sounds, the truth is, being yourself is the one way you can truly stand out from the crowd.  You're a unique individual, and the best way to start to express that [...]

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 [...]

Possibly Anything

Possibly Anything

I sometimes find myself searching the internet for motivational or inspirational poems that I can share with you here.  Tonight I found one that's pretty cool, and which I had never read before.  It's attributed to that world famous author we've all come to know and love, Unknown.  Sometimes it's better that way, since you never really know if the right person is getting credit for saying wonderful things. Regardless of who wrote it, the words are certainly inspirational.  And I hope that they move you and motivate you to do something [...]

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

Everybody needs a little positive mojo in their life.  Even the most optimistic among us can use encouragement each day.  Let's face it, the world can be a pretty negative place sometimes. You may be one of those optimistic people who make the conscious decision each day to be positive.  If you are, I think that's awesome, and I say congrats to you!  You might also stay focused on your goals most of the time.  If so, again, I say to you, I love it! However, in the same breath, I would also tell you that you still need some of that [...]

Three Simple Things

Three Simple Things

I'll tell you about three things you could do every day that might make your experience here on the planet a little more enjoyable. You certainly don't have to do these things.  Just because they work for me, doesn't mean they'll work for you, right?  After all, we're all on a different part of the path, we're all at a different place in the journey, and we're all unique.  The things that one person finds to be extremely effective in moving themselves to the next level may not be exactly what the doctor ordered for someone else.  I get [...]

Confession of a Grateful Grandson

Confession of a Grateful Grandson

I have a confession to make.  And as a grown man, who is married and the father of two kids, this one is going to sound pretty sappy.  But, here it goes... I miss my grandma. Okay, I said it.  And I think I feel a little better getting it off my chest.  Now look, it's as honest a confession as could ever be uttered, but I also feel like I'm taking a big chance by throwing it out there, since you readers may start thinking that I'm a bit of a softy. That's a big risk for a guy who considers himself a man's man at the core! But, [...]

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 Wanna Be a Miracle?

You Wanna Be a Miracle?

I'm a big fan of Jim Carrey.  I'm also a big fan of Morgan Freeman.  They are two of my favorite actors, and for different reasons. Jim Carrey is incredibly talented and always manages to make me laugh.  He has even inspired me to develop an Ace Ventura persona  that I break into around my kids sometimes.  "Alrighty, then!" Morgan Freeman is just a great actor.  And perhaps the king of the movie narrators.  I once joked that if a movie were ever made about my life, I would want Morgan Freeman to narrate it. In any event, I [...]
