Find your Passion

27 Feb, 2015 , , ,

What do you want to be, do, and have? My mentor, Zig Ziglar, says, “You’ve got to be before you can do, and do before you can have.” In other words, having what you want is not as easy as snapping your fingers. First you have to do the work (e.g., learn how to play the […]

Rainbows

24 Feb, 2015

We know rainbows are beautiful. In fact, I have to share this. I didn’t put this in my book and I’m sharing this for the first time. The most gorgeous rainbow I have ever seen in my life happened to be on the day of Chris’ mother’s funeral. It was an end-to-end rainbow as bright […]

Define Your Goals

21 Feb, 2015 ,

A lot of people don’t have purpose, direction or even motivation to move toward what they want, because they haven’t defined what “that” is. They don’t have goals. How many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t know,” when asked, “What do you want to do in life?” or, “Where do you see yourself […]

Rainbows and childhood

18 Feb, 2015 , ,

I love rainbows. I think they’re beautiful and when I was a kid, I was obsessed with them and I would literally just draw them on everything with my crayons. I just loved all the colors. I always put a pot of gold at the end of it. I think all little girls love rainbows […]

Life can change quickly

12 Feb, 2015 , ,

I never consciously thought to myself that I was waiting, and it’s not like I was sitting around waiting for a fairy Godmother with a magical wand to come hit me over the head and say, “Okay, now you’re ready. Now you can start writing.” It wasn’t like that, of course, and it’s not that […]

Are you stuck in a rut? Are you afraid of change?

9 Feb, 2015 , ,

“If you don’t really know where you want to go, it makes no difference which road you take.” How many of us are walking down roads that are leading nowhere? How many of us have a feeling that our lives could be happier and more prosperous but our current circumstances are holding us back and making […]

Live your life now!

6 Feb, 2015 , ,

I want to share a story. If you’ve read my book, you know the story about Tom, and I’ve talked to some of you about this already in my speeches. This story hits home and I want you to really take to heart the process that this person and this family went through, because I […]

Love yourself!

3 Feb, 2015 , , ,

In the Bible, Mark 12:31 states “Love your neighbor as yourself”. This is a beautiful verse and one that can help us have more love in our life but, I believe we interpret this all wrong. Some interpret this wisdom by beginning with their neighbor and excluding themselves in the phrase, “Love your neighbor.” Period. […]
