Toeing the Line

Living wisely is hard to do.  (In case you didn’t know that!) It’s not that having or attaining knowledge is all that hard, but the humility that comes along with wisdom throws most of us for a loop! I don’t know about you, but I don’t find myself being all that humble very often. In […]

Failing…Big Time

Have you ever watched one of those singing shows where the contestant tells the television camera that this is their last stop and that if they don’t make it they don’t have a clue what they will do? I’ve often wondered what happens to those people. Do they go on and try again?  Do they […]

IT’S NOT TOO LATE!!!

As I was re-reading Tuesday’s post about dreaming big and pushing past fear to accomplish our life purposes, I realized that many of us probably think it’s too late for to GO FOR THE GOLD! NO, NO, NO!!!  It’s NEVER too late!  In fact, defeat only comes when we stop trying. Obviously, we all have […]

What Would You Do?

What would you do if you could?  Hmmmm….  Good question. As the year of 2014 is winding down, I’ve been really wondering what should be on my list of goals for the coming year.   And, not just the normal goals (work out and eat better), but the really BIG ones that I’m always too scared […]

Risky Business

I only caught the tail-end of Elon Musk’s interview on Sunday night’s 60 Minutes, but it made quite the impression on me.  As a matter of fact, I haven’t been able to think about much else. In case you have no idea who the heck Elon Musk is (no worries, I was clueless, too), let […]

Commitment

The start of a New Year brings about much discussion of resolutions, goals, plans, objectives and getting ourselves motivated to make this year better than the last. Clearly, the year ahead is on my mind because I’ve already written two blogs in the past few weeks about making plans and moving on.  Honestly, I thought […]

Planning and Perseverance

If success was easy, everyone would be a billionaire. The truth about achieving our best in life is that it takes plenty of failed attempts, constant revisions and tearful tries to finally make it to the top of the mountain we are climbing. And wishing won’t help. Honestly, the only thing that leads to victory […]

Making Time

I thought summertime was supposed to be relaxing, easy and lazy!!!  NOT! Traveling with the family on a cross-country excursion does not lend itself to anything simple!  I mean, come on!  I can plan till pigs fly, but I’m still going to have forgotten something and we are approximately 1000 miles from home! My success […]

The Vision Board

Change is a’comin’!  I know it, I feel it and I have failed to prepare for it.  (If the act of thinking prepares oneself for the future, than I should be the most prepared person in the world.  But, I’m pretty sure preparation takes action).  Argh! “The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, […]
