The Great Wood Splitting Challenge...(Part 1)

December 22, 2012…

After a number of preliminary contests, the two finalists in The Great Extra Mile Wood Splitting Challenge stood shoulder-to-shoulder.

Well, sort of.

You see, there was a rather large difference in the size of the two men.

Here is the Secret to Getting Noticed

December 21, 2012…

Do what you love with enough passion long enough, and people will notice you.

And then…

Possibility will open. Opportunity will be created. Success will be found. And your inner spirit will feel amazing knowing that your full potential is being maximized.

Looking For the Good in Every Day

December 20, 2012…

Something matter how big or small…must have happened for you today. It could have been as small a gesture as a simple smile from a stranger, but most assuredly, there was a "feel good" moment.

Was it a comment you received at work? A wagging dog tail when you came home? Was it that you exercised, kept your patience, or shared a positive word with a friend?

Do you have a "highlight of the day"?

December 19, 2012…

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 and tell any "stinkin' thinkin'" that may be going on to "Hush!"

Where Does Courage Come From?

December 18, 2012…

Where does courage...the strength to do what you know you should do...come from?

1. It comes from having yourself.
2. It comes from wanting the best...for your life.
3. It comes from listening to your purest voice...and stepping out.

Don't Live Under a Cloud

December 17, 2012…

Have you ever wanted to make a huge change in your life, but overwhelming fear weighed you down?

The fear of the unknown...of leaving the known....can be absolutely paralyzing. The mental and emotional paralysis can be so intense that taking the action to make that change becomes impossible.

And then we forever have to live under a cloud of "I should have gone for it!"

Be a Doer. Not a Talker.

December 16, 2012…

People talk all the time. They talk about what they're going to accomplish. They talk about all the great goals they are going to achieve. They talk about writing the book, going back to school, going on a safari, or starting a business. And as so often happens...all the talking leads to little action being taken.

Be the opposite. Be a doer…not a talker. Be the model of what it means to take action.

Let Fear Slide Down the Importance Chart

December 15, 2012…

Striving For A Different "Fear Level" Meter

December 14, 2012…

BIG dreamers seem to have a different fear level meter built into their nervous system than the rest of us. Little scares them when it comes to setting their goals. Dreams that would cause most of us to be filled with the red-alert sort of adrenalin motivates them.

What would you do with your life if you could join that crowd?

They have names like Edison, Jobs, Gates, Winfrey, Disney

December 13, 2012…

Some people really dream big in life. These are the folks for whom just dreaming of a new career or planning a cruise doesn't cut it. They want far more. They want to go after even BIGGER goals.

They have names like Edison, Jobs, Gates, Winfrey, Disney.

You get the idea.
