"An Attitude of Gratitude"

January 21, 2010...

I have two kinds of goals in my life. External goals. And internal goals.

The external goals? Well, they give my life purpose. They are the goals that are tied to making my life count. They are the goals that can be seen. They are the "bricks" of my life.

Throwing in the Towel

January 20, 2010...

It's easy to want to do at times.

"Just survive!!"

January 19, 2010...

The events and circumstances of our individual lives can take a toll.

From them, it is easy to grow weary and make much less effort to dream and push ourselves. Our biggest goal simply becomes coping. At times, most of us have fallen victim to this "Just survive!" mentality.

Will tomorrow be better?

January 18, 2010...

I was sent an email recently that when melted down to its core simply read: "I hate my life. Can you guarantee tomorrow will be any better?"

Hmmm...can I really guarantee tomorrow will be better?

Everyday Lessons

January 17, 2010...

I was asked where I get my ideas for my newsletter and my blogs.

The answer is easy: I get ideas from everywhere.

In conversations. From books. From the news. From a movie. From something I see while running.

"Later" Starts "Now"

January 16, 2010...

Later, when the dust clears and you can see the consequences of previous individual decisions, you'll notice a trend: It feels better to have made the hard choice.

1. Later, you wish you had had one less drink.

The other end of the phone...

Courtesy and kindness go a long, long way to making life better.

Look around you for the answer

January 14, 2010...

If you want to know your current potential, look around you.

Look at the people in your life.

Don't Postpone Yourself

January 13, 2010...

Does the answer "Tomorrow" really cut it?

Do you really think your life will be easier and all the challenges that currently cement your feet to the ground will be eliminated...tomorrow?

"I'll look for a new job...tomorrow"

"I'll start saving money...next month."

"I'll apply to school...next year."

"Choice" Awareness

January 12, 2010...

Choices. They surround us every day. Little choices. Big choices.

When to get up? Choice.

Your toothpaste this morning? Choice.

What to eat for lunch? Choice.
