It’s amazing how an uplifting or inspirational story can completely change your day, and sometimes your life. One thought that touches your heart or reminds you of your dreams can inspire steps that would otherwise remain untaken and stir new perspectives on life and possibilities.

On this page, you’ll always find a wealth of inspiring, motivating, and insightful stories– thoughtfully chosen with you and your dreams in mind.

Thank you for being my special guest, as we go on a journey of the mind, to explore this elusive thing we call SUCCESS.

 

"The Wall"

I am truly excited! I am off to see Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) perform “The Wall” tomorrow. I thought this might be fitting…ENJOY! Being in unfamiliar territory can stop a person dead in his or her tracks. Have you ever made a decision to do something fantastic (a dream perhaps) and then you were overcome…

I got a rock!

Let me start by saying “I love Charlie Brown”!  I mean it! I love Charlie Brown. Maybe it’s because I can relate so well with him. Everything always went wrong. I guess you could say…”I got a rock” Here is my personal Charlie Brown story. Enjoy! My gloves to big, my spikes untied, and the…

Can We Talk?

I recently sat down and was looking through my pile of notes and here is something that stuck out and I found interesting. I hope you feel the same. Happiness and peace of mind are not goals, they are conditions of life that all thinking people want, and can most certainly obtain. They are not…

Here’s what Earl thought of attitude: A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems…

It's Your Turn

A few days ago I came back from my daily run. My daughter Rebecca had just left for school. I turned on my PC and a word document popped up. This is what it said: KEEP MOVING FORWARD I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! I LOVE YOU! YOU’RE THE BEST! Love P.H What kind of a…

The Bean

Oh how I loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk! A little boy plants a bean, watches it grown, nurtures it, takes care of it and it leads him to everything he could want from life, everything he could have dreamed of, all the riches in the world. If only I, yes me…if only…

Success and the Self Image

This is usually where I put in a “life story”. An unhealthy self-image has been the story of my life. I struggled for most of my life thinking I didn’t deserve, or wasn’t worthy of all the good life had to offer. Then, I took the positive steps to turn it around. Let’s talk about…

Toolbox Tuesday – Git R Done

It was March 2008 and I had the opportunity to have a sit down with one of my mentors Bob Proctor. During our conversation Bob asked me if I had one question of him what would it be? I knew the answer right away! My question was this…Why do people know what to do, yet…
