What Are You Writing Between Your Two Dates?

October 25, 2012…

As I pedaled on less-traveled roads across the country in 2009, I pedaled by tens and tens of well-manicured and historical cemeteries. Often surrounded by perhaps a small ranch home or acres of corn fields, these small reminders of people who lived as many as 200 years prior reinforces the undeniable fact that we each are given two dates in life.

Make "Possibility" One of Your Favorite Words

October 24, 2012…

Possibility and probability do not go hand in hand. Possibility is associated with bold thinking. Probability is associated with limited thinking. If you want truly live a life that you'll love life, forget probability. Take risks…and make "possibility" one of your favorite words. Then live it.

Our dreams are as big as we allow them to be. They are as small as we limit them to be, too.

I have heard so many times, "Why dream big…they never happen so why end up disappointed?"

The Secret to Keeping Big Goals Alive

October 22, 2012…

Dreams, goals and resolutions are ALWAYS exciting when they are first made. Then comes the actual doing.

Then they all slip away.

But they don't have to.

1. Never get overwhelmed by immediate results.
2. Take action every day.
3. Keep going.

Redirect Your Thinking

October 21, 2012…

The "spin" that you give things mentally directly impact how you feel about your day, your job, your relationships...your life.

You Are Responsible For Your Own Motivation

October 20, 2012…

The direction and quality of our day is directly related to what we're thinking about and what we're focused on. If you're having a bad day, nothing can spark renewed momentum better than eliminating "stinkin' thinkin".

"OUT with the negative! IN with the positive!"

You Are Responsible For Your Own Motivation

October 19, 2012…

Keep an inspiring book, CD, or perhaps your own motivating, self-written material on your desk, in your car, briefcase or purse. Don't let a whole day be wasted by an internal conversation focused on "garbage thinking." Find that motivating item for you today, and decide where you will keep it for quick access. You are responsible for keeping motivated!

A Willingness to Take Action

October 17, 2012…

It's not enough to be willing to dream.  Everybody has the potential to do that. Most have goals. Most want more out of their life. We all want the best for ourselves. But just simply willing to dream is never enough to make it happen.

Opportunity is Created When We Extend Ourselves

October 16, 2012…

Is there a great adventure you would like to plan? Is there an organization in your community that needs your support? Is there something you can do to go the extra mile to make life better either for yourself or someone else?

Opportunity is created when we extend ourselves. Possibility exists when we chase opportunity. How about bringing more of both...possibility and opportunity...into your life?
