I’m convinced that we are overcomplicating success. So many are trying to find an easier and quicker way of doing things. The magic, however, comes in taking consistent action and then what I like to refer to as the 8th wonder of the world—compound interest. It is as if you take a hockey stick and […]

What if it is that simple??

How is your integrity today? By that I mean, how well did you line up with your values and did you do all that you resolved to do? Successful people keep their commitments and do the things they said they would do, even long after the feeling in which they committed to doing them has […]

Those who are persistent can GET there. Those who are consistently persistent can STAY there. Start with being persistent in everything you do. Next, focus on being consistent.

Happy WINsday!

While much of progress comes steady over time (or regression for that matter), there are times in our lives that we approach clear decisions points where we see and execute upon a need for change. There are two main catalysts for change: vision and pain. The Bible says, “where there is no vision, the people […]

When we say WIN around LTP, we are referring to a one person game—you versus you. The idea is to compete against yourself yesterday. To attempt to improve ever so slightly each day, each week, each month and each year with a vision in mind of looking back one day at a life well spent. […]

You have enough. So often we think that things fail or cannot succeed without a certain resource…like, money, time, connection, knowledge, etc. I am here to tell you, things rarely fail for a lack of resources, they fail for a lack of resourcefulness. Instead of focusing on where you may be lacking in resources, which […]

This time of year is a great time to take an audit of where you spent your time over the past year and who you spent it with. Look for the habits, practices, and routines that lead to joy. And, conversely, look for those people and places that brought you down. The formula is simple: […]

Making life “easy” for children usually makes life “hard” for them in adulthood.  I believe one of the greatest gifts that can be given to a child is to teach him or her the value of work.  It is a gift that can never be taken away.  I realize that it can be a natural […]
