Who Said it Was Going to be Fair

Posted by on Nov 6, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Awareness, Belief's, Personal Development, Relationships, Thought Provoking | 0 comments

Recently, my youngest daughter has been over using the term, “hey that’s not fair”. The typical response I give her: “who told you it was supposed to be fair?”

Our culture carries with it the belief that we need to be fair. Treat others with fairness, raise our children to be fair and that overall, life is about fairness. But is it?

Who ever said life was going to be fair? Who told us that others would treat us fairly? Was it our parents? Before them, their parents and their parents and…. Well, you get the point.

Can we all agree: life is not always fair. Innocent people are harmed every day, contributing, caring people get cancer and those who have given their lives to help others, are wronged. That’s life and no, it’s not fair!

Your Mind, Your Money – It Matters

Posted by on Sep 17, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Awareness, Belief's, God, Happiness, Personal Development, Thought Provoking | 0 comments

OK, I’ll admit it. In my twenties, all I wanted was to make money — A lot of it, and I didn’t really care how. Six and seven digit dollar signs filled my thoughts. Man! What I could do with that much money!

I started following the work of a gentleman who made a living by trading commodities. He had done quite well, most would have labeled him as rich. A risky way to earn money? Yes, but I didn’t think about that side of it. Making money was the goal, and this looked like the place to do it.

Upon following him, I went into learning mode about how we think, feel, why we do what we do, and how feelings cause us to act in a certain way. This is a subject a lot of traders learn because it helps them become better at their craft. These were area’s I was somewhat familiar with. Upon following his teaching, this area became more valuable than the trading itself. Money, emotions, thoughts, choice, and behavior have always been intriguing. So, when he taught, I paid attention.

S.I.D Part 2

Posted by on Aug 7, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Belief's, Happiness, Personal Development, Relationships | 0 comments

S.I.D: Self Imposed Doubt.

Last week we discussed who S.I.D is, where he came from, and how he works. This week you are going to get some basic steps on how you can take control OVER him!

Self-imposed doubt is destructive. If it were possible for S.I.D to have a goal, it would be to hold you down and keep you from becoming and having the kind of life you truly desire. No matter what that dream is: true love, happiness, healthy weight, a rewarding career, financial bliss, or a peaceful life; if you dream of it but don’t have it, S.I.D is likely at the core of it.

Meet S.I.D

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Belief's, Happiness, Personal Development, Relationships | 0 comments

Allow me to introduce you to someone who follows you around daily, and you’re probably not even aware of it!

He’s always right there, whispering to you; sometimes in the morning, sometimes at night. Usually when you’re alone is when he speaks the loudest. That’s also when he can have the biggest impact on you.

Surely you know of who I am talking about…it’s S.I.D. He sits up on your shoulder, and when you least expect it, he whispers to you. You probably don’t even know he’s there. In fact, S.I.D is so smooth and effective at what he does, I’d be willing to bet you’re completely unaware of him.

God is Not a Vending Machine

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Belief's, God, Happiness, Personal Development, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Lately, I cannot take my daughters past a vending machine without them wanting something from it.

They are young and going through that stage where they think they need candy, soda or some kind of ice cream daily. I know kids go through this, but it gets old after a while! I want this; I want that, all the time. If you’ve raised kids, you well know what I am referring to.

As an adult, one of the ways I have come to try to understand God and how he views me is very similar to how I view my own children. How I see them, their actions and affection, brings about a certain feeling or insight as to how God must feel when He watches me.

 Obviously, there are times when we do not approve of our children’s behavior and choices, but we still love them the same. If they choose to wander away, do their own thing, spread their wings and fail, we still love them. Even doing things knowing their parents will likely not approve, they still do it. As parents, we sit back watching, observing and hoping they will eventually come back.

Kids and an Elephant

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Belief's, Personal Development | 0 comments

What do a baby elephant, an adult elephant and you have in common? More than you think!

I recently read a story about one of the ways in which a baby elephant is trained, and I instantly realized: Wow! There is little difference between this and how adults train their kids. When a baby elephant (calf) is being trained, the trainer will tie one end of a rope to its leg and the other end to a stake driven in the ground. The trainer keeps the rope relatively short so the calf cannot venture very far. Although the calf tries many times to break free from the limit of the rope, it cannot. The rope is simply too strong.

What You Believe Could Get You Fired

Posted by on Mar 18, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Belief's, Personal Development | 1 comment

Recently, at the agency I work for, I was asked by management to sit in as a third-party witness while an employee was to be terminated. Aside from the experience itself, there was a lot to be learned from what happened next.

Now, before I share some insight, you need to know: I get no enjoyment out of seeing anyone being fired. The money we earn from our jobs supports our families, and that is important. Having been fired myself, when I was in my younger years, has made me far more sympathetic to those who do get terminated.

What’s Your Love Style?

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Attitude of Success, Love Styles, Relationships | 0 comments

One of the most powerful ways to meet the needs of your spouse is understanding their love language. Did you even know you have a love language?

Much like a personality, each one of us carries a love style or language. In short, it’s the way in which we feel or receive love.

Not every one of us feel loved the same way. To one person, feeling loved might come from their spouse making them their favorite meal. Another might feel loved by spending quality time together on a walk or going for a drive. Yet another might mean a surprise back massage.

Your Struggles & Your Seasons

Posted by on Dec 10, 2013 in Attitude of Success, Personal Development | 3 comments

All of life revolves around going through seasons. Happy seasons, challenging seasons, growth seasons, surviving seasons and even dark seasons. Animals, plants, people, relationships, even our jobs or careers. Each has it’s highs and lows or: seasons.

Ancient scriptures states: There is a time and a season for every activity under the heavens. A season for everything… Really? It even goes on to say in detail: A time to plant, a time to uproot. A time to search and a time to give up. A time to love and a time to hate. Whoa, hold it! A time to hate? Is this correct? This can’t be right…
