Did You Hear The One About the Two Farmers?

When the rain fell, one farmer said, “Thank God, our crops are being watered.” But the other farmer said, “Yeah, but if the rain keeps up, it’s going to rot the roots or even put it under water!” When the sun came out, the positive farmer said, “Thank God, our crops are getting the vitamins […]

Look back…

…at what you’ve been through; don’t look at how far you have to go. Instead, look at how far you’ve come. You’ve done pretty good despite it all. And since you’ve made it this far, the best is yet to come!

Unlimited Limits.

You may think you can’t achieve anymore than you already have, but I would have to disagree with you. You might say your age is in the way, or the lack in resources is a stumbling block, or it could be not enough time. With all due respect, these limitations are all an illusion. I […]

Because failure is not a person, failure is an event. Don’t let your past dictate and design your future. You have a gift, a talent, a dream that […]

In The Zone.

….This means you are focused only on the task at hand. Regardless of distractions. Regardless of what’s happening around you. You are focused to get the job done, deliver a performance saturated with excellence and intensity that nothing can derail you. No matter what. I recently tweeted: “Don’t allow what you’re going through to distract you from where you’re […]

Road Trip.

In the recent Christmas/New Year break, my family embarked on a long road trip. At one point a unified decision was made to make a bathroom stop. We exited the freeway and headed for a little town we had never been to or through before, stopping at the first service station in sight. It was […]

Drama Drama Drama.

My bride and I love going to the movies. These past couple of months we’ve been to watch a few. Thinking about the movies we’ve seen, there seems to be a common thread with the way the sequence of a movie goes, whether it be drama, romantic comedies, or an action film: most movies are […]
