Except YOU

December 14, 2009...

No one is in charge of your success.

Except YOU.

No one is in charge of your happiness.

Except YOU.

"Hit the brakes...and punch the gas!"

December 13, 2009...

Attitude momentum.

It's always our choice.

We can either hit the brakes or punch the gas. We are good at both; it's just that we never really master when to do either. 

The Highlight of the Day

December 12, 2009...

Do you have one? Do you have a "highlight of the day"?

At the end of each matter how successful or unsuccessful the day
seemed...I always look for a highlight. Some days my brain might not
want to pull one out...but that's when I just have to dig a bit deeper.
The highlight is there. It always is.

"Problems" versus "Possibilities"

December 11, 2009...

"Problems" versus "possibilities."

Where's your focus and with whom do you more readily identify?


December 10, 2009...

I've always felt that communication...speaking and writing... is the one
acquired skill that could move us ahead in life faster than any other.
Solid communication skills shown in both our professional and personal
lives can do wonders for how life treats us.

Maybe you've noticed, too.

You have the "power"

December 9, 2009...


It's an interesting concept.

The Success Chain...

December 8, 2009...

Self-talk is pretty darn important.

A Transformational Recipe

December 7, 2009...

To be "inspired." To be "motivated." To be "transformed."

Inspiration. Motivation. Transformation.

I believe when true change reaches an individual, these three words
work together in perfect sequence. One doesn't guarantee the
other...but the goal is that one will follow the other.

My "Best Self"

December 6, 2009...

Of course, we all know 'tis the season of cheer and goodwill. It's that special two week period each year when we bring out our "best self"
to life's party. We give presents. We send cards out by the dozens to
people we rarely talk to during the year. We smile bigger, greet people
more happily, and occasionally can even be seen wearing that silly red
and white Santa cap.

A Mental Sting...

December 5, 2009...

Have you ever been stung by a bee?

Those of us that have definitely know that this little insect can certainly carry quite the big-time "OUCH!". I was reminded today of that ouch feeling. Except it wasn't a bee. And it wasn't physical.

It was a mental sting.
