“The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion when no one else is looking.”

I wanted to write something that would motivate those of you who are taking the time to read this post. For many people, the paths we […]

Put Two Feet In…

I’ve officially worked my first “real” job for 4 weeks now. It hasn’t been the smoothest of rides so far (I’ll explain later). Oh yeah, and did I mention that the pay is commission only as well? The fact that it’s commission only doesn’t bother me. In fact, the job itself […]

Too Often We Are Scared…

A few years back I saw this quote in a magazine and have had it written down and saved on my computer ever since. I wanted to share it with my readers because over the years it has served me with great motivation and inspiration every time I read through it.
Too often we are scared.
Scared […]

You’re Not Ready to Succeed Until You Believe

I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any […]

Making Difficult Decisions in Difficult Times

“The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.”
-Flora Whittemore

I have really been troubled the last few months. It seems as though the direction my life is headed in is uncertain. I hate not knowing what’s going to happen, where I’m going to to be, and who […]

A Kid’s Mentality…Dream Big or Go Home

Photo by Flickr user TylerKnott

Take a minute to reflect upon the past. Not the recent past, but when you were between the ages of 5 to 10 years old. When you were a little kid not yet a “grown up” you probably had a lot of ideas and dreams. Big, out of the ordinary, what […]

What Makes a Leader?

Lately, I’ve been trying to make a change. A change that requires me to take in and surround myself with more positive, inspirational, and motivational things. By things I mean people, listening to and watching people’s success stories, reading the advice from other successful business and entrepreneurial minded individuals, and keeping positive thoughts running through […]

ABC’s FlashForward Letter Al Wrote to Celia

One of my new favorite television dramas is ABC’s FlashForward. I watched the first episode and have been hooked since. In this week’s episode Al Gough, played by Lee Thompson Young, commits suicide. By committing suicide he wouldn’t affect the life of Celia and her two children–the future couldn’t happen as seen in his FlashForward. […]

Life is Too Short to Wake Up With Regrets

Photo by Flickr User believer9

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don’t.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be […]
