SUMMER’S CALLING…

OK, I’ll admit it. This year Spring Fever hit me hard. The picture above is just an example of what was right outside my window, beckoning me. I’m recovering, and now that my raging case of spring fever is subsiding, I’m looking at my world differently. This period of bowing to my whims and whatnots…

CHOOSE!

Not choosing is a choice. And choice is the first step to commitment. Want to be committed to your dreams, your goals, your vision? It all starts with choice. Truth is, sometimes it’s hard to choose. Remember back when you were a kid, and you were making an early buying decision? It felt really important,…

“I COULD DO THAT … BUT DO I REALLY WANT TO?”

“Well, I could do that …” How often do you find yourself saying this to friends, family and even at work? This might be the answer you give when some well-meaning person suggests a course of action for you to take. It may be about your business, your relationships, or even the vision they have…

The most important minute of your day!

How do you frame your day? It’s been said that the first few minutes after you wake up in the morning can shape your day, for better, or for worse. Consider these two examples to see what I mean, OK? In the first, you wake to a beautiful, sunny, 70-degree-birds-chirping kind of day, with nothing more than…

Boo!! What scares YOU?

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt What scares you? For many of us, one thing is the fear of public speaking. Statistics back this fear up – by now, many of us are aware that public speaking is the number one fear people have.   Scarier than divorce, being fired…
