Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.”
It is well researched that the group of people we surround ourselves with have the power to influence our thoughts, feelings and actions; and ultimately, the results we create in life. Our success is directly related to the amount of support that we create and accept in our lives.
One strategy to create this kind of support, as used
Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored. ~ Daniel Webster Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life. We are blessed, please remember all those who have served this Memorial Day.
If someone asked you today, “What is your purpose, what is your vision and what are you goals?” -- Would you be able to answer those questions?
Most of us spend more time planning what to eat for dinner than we spend time planning for our life.
If we don’t have a vision, then we will create the life we have always known.
If our vision isn’t anchored in our purpose then we go off track.
Our goals are the means by which we reach our vision that is driven by a purpos
There is a vast difference between having a thought and thinking.
A thought and thinking are vastly different because when I am thinking a thought, I am giving life to that vibration. Thoughts may come and go but our thinking is held with intention.
When a thought of cynicism, resentment, or betrayal comes to mind, you and I have every choice and every right to say yes or no.
What we thought had power over us has none without our permission.
We are creating all t
Shakespeare once said, "Sweet are the uses of adversity."
When we are in the midst of adversity ourselves it doesn’t feel very sweet, but what he is saying is this:
"Sweet are the uses of adversity which like a toad, ugly and venomous at first look, finds yet a precious jewel upon its head and thus our lives, exempt from public harm, find tongues in trees, books in running brooks, sermons in stones and good in everything. I would not change it."
Good in everything, I wo
We have all been trained to some degree about nutrition for the body -- how our body needs water, food and exercise.
What about our soul? One of the things a soul needs is stillness. Another thing the soul needs is beauty.
What is it that you keep around you that seems beautiful?
You could look right now, and find beauty.
Remember beauty really is in the eye of the beholder but it is important that your eye has some things that image beauty for you.
To Letting Go! Cleaning our lives can be like cleaning our garage.
As we clean out our garage, we come upon things to sort out, things to let go of, things to keep and things that make us wonder, "How did I ever collect this...?"
It was Henry David Thoreau who said, "An unexamined life is not worth living."
As we go through our own mental closets and emotional closets, perhaps it’s time today to let go of some things we have held onto.
Let today be a day of lettin
Warren Buffett has spoken of what is called the "Law of Gestation:"
The amount of time required from seed to whatever the seed is going to be -- Such as if there is an amount of time required for an acorn to become a mighty oak tree. There is an amount of time required for each thing.
He said honoring that there is an amount of time required is one of the best things.
Most people start something and give up on the idea or project before it comes to fruition.
Here is a great excerpt from "Living Above the Line: Monthly News Letter" As we try to create our best life, we have to ask how we want to live. Do you want to live… ABOVE THE LINE and spend your time creating and immersed in possibilities? or BELOW THE LINE consumed with the drama, problems, and excuses of why things can’t happen? Which one gets you closer to sharing your best? Although it’s tempting to convince yourself that only Below the Line solutions are available in ch
Wisdom from Dr. Rich Shuttler Focus on 100% Customer Satisfaction! A long-time friend and I had a discussion last night and he asked me for recommendations on how to increase new sales, earn repeat business, and how to increase new sales via referrals. I shared with him, as I do with clients or when I speak in public, that "unless you take
