Attitude of Gratitude

Got to have an attitude of gratitude. Everything in your life is GREAT if that is what you think. If you are like me, just typing this makes me a uneasy. Why? If someone if telling you that EVERYTHING in their life is peachy, I would run as far away from them as possible. Either they have set their expectations …

Stop Complaining!

Sometimes I catch myself complaining when something is not how I would want it, or when things don’t go my way. I think we are all guilty of being in that frame of mind from time to time. That’s never going away, but we can minimize it to the best of our ability. How? Next time you catch yourself complaining …

Do You Journal?

I am sure you have heard about all the benefits of a journal. Here is what most will not tell you. Staring at a blank piece of paper can be intimidating. Sometimes the hardest part is starting and MOST of the time we have to know the starting point and ending point. I challenge you to not have any expectations …

Glass Half Empty

  I will not take credit for what I am about to tell, but it is necessary to share. We have all heard the saying, “Is the glass half empty or half full?” The gist of this is to ask yourself if you are optimistic or pessimistic in any given situation. You may even have a different meaning for it, …

Where Has Your Tribe GONE?

I am a BIG FAN of Tim Ferriss! He brings on amazing guests from all walks of life and I have learned A LOT from his efforts! Thanks Tim! I was listening to his interview with Sebastian Junger and WOW was he speaking my language! When he started talking about tribe, he put me smack dab in the middle of …

BEFORE AND AFTER

Why do we love BEFORE and AFTER? Think about it for a second. Any project that you take on, there is a starting point and then the result. Seeing where you started and how you finished is something we ALL take part in. It could be weight loos, home renovation, washing a dirty car and the list goes on forever! …

To Trust or Not?

Bad things happen. Just watch the 6:00 news long enough and you will lose all trust in humanity. It is easy to lock all your doors and just hide so nothing bad ever happens. This is NOT how I choose to live my life and I know there will be times where I will be let down. Knowing that I …

Are You Surrounded by the Right People?

If you study the most successful people in any arena, you will find that ALL of them surround themselves with amazing people. I am not talking about temporary success, but sustained dominance in the field they practice with character and wealth. When I look back at my path to where I am today, it is very clear that when I …
