So What Do You Want To Do Or Be When You Grow Up?

So What Do You Want To Do Or Be When You Grow Up?
First and foremost, recognize that you were made unique, special, and full of talent. Your job is to shine! Your job is to figure out what your gift is and give it to the world! It can be intimidating at first to have to break down the barriers of not having a belief in yourself or thinking that you are not good enough. Thoughts like, “I’m not good at anything. Who would benefit from what I have t...

Priorities

Priorities
What are your priorities? What is most important to you? I was attending a presentation one time and the speaker said, “Wherever you spend most of your time is what is most important to you.” You have probably heard this before, too. At the time, I was twenty-five years old, spending many, many hours growing my chiropractic practice. I was also newly married to my beautiful wife. I was conflicted,...

Parenting

Parenting
This post is for the parents out there. I’m assuming if you have kids, you want them to be incredible.  Kids are such a gift to us, aren’t they? Parenting is a privilege, and in my opinion, a trusted gift from God. Children are one of the greatest joys in life. Our job as parents is to give them the tools they need to succeed in life. Now remember, this goes without being said, you are the example...

Rituals and Reflection

Rituals and Reflection
“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” -Leonardo da Vinci Are you a driver or producer?

Lack Of Confrontation

Lack Of Confrontation
Fear of confrontation is a huge trap for so many of us. I have seen this one totally destroy relationships. Your happiness with others is directly proportionate to your ability to confront when needed. Confrontation must happen to get what you want. Instead of looking at it as a scary negative thing, let’s take the mystery out of it and make it a not scary, positive thing.  Lack of confrontation l...

The Habits Of Wealth

The Habits Of Wealth
Why wealth? Because if you are poor it is very difficult to focus on anything else but surviving and paying your bills, that’s why. You’re destined for more than that. Is that right or right? Okay, let’s start with what wealth is. Wealth is the subject of money and money accumulation. Money has always been a fun subject for me. I think for most entrepreneurs it usually is. What is money? Seriously...

Self Acceptance

Self Acceptance
I love myself! I love myself! I love myself! YOUR TURN. Stop reading, go in front of a mirror, look into your eyes and say, “I love myself, I love myself, I love myself.” Seriously, stop reading and do this exercise. Don’t read the next paragraph because it will rob you of this wonderful life lesson. Ready, set, go. Find a mirror, and say to yourself, “I love myself! I love myself! I love myself!”...

Help Others

Help Others
It is easy to get overwhelmed by all the people and all the movements and all the causes that ask for and need our help. Don’t get jaded. Apathy is your enemy, remember? Care, and care deeply for others. Choose your cause and get active. I definitely follow the philosophy that most often, the helping hand we need is at the end of our own arms. However, this does not mean we don’t sometimes need a ...

Resentment

Resentment
Resentment of our self or others is like growing a spreading cancer in our bodies that we have the choice to cure, and yet some of us refuse to do it.  We all know that resentment truly is like us drinking poison and expecting the other person to get hurt. It is just not a productive emotion to get what you want. Leaders forgive. Winners forgive. They move forward. Winners learn from the action. C...

Attitude And Happiness

Attitude And Happiness
“Today is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I see fit. I can waste it or grow in its light and be of service to others. Today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. I hope I don’t regret the price I paid for it.” —6th Grade Outdoor Education Camp Leader –Jefferson County, 1986   Every ...
