This was a powerful talk that I listened to about 3 times - a Ted Talk from Lucy Hone - find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWH8N-BvhAw These things she brings up here are flat out amazing for all of us to take into account, wherever we are at in our lives. This served me a plateful of hope & inspiration and I hope it will do the same for…
 
Found some lessons on the road with a trip that I took with my parents. Wasn't a vacation as we met up with my aunt & uncle and my cousin to help another aunt out with some things that needed to be done. There were a lot of laughs, especially at some of the things we all needed to pitch in to help with. Big thing was the kindness we got from people…
 
Amazing lessons coming from "You Win in the Locker Room First"! Coach Mike Smith lays down some great teachings here about having a positive attitude and looking to turn bad days into bad moments.

The 7th and final gift from the "Traveler's Gift" by Andy Andrews is that of persistence. Something that truthfully, I'm not that great at. The connections to this one are simply awesome that are brought up here. Again, the book is something to go and and find a copy for yourself. Tremendous value for sure! Thanks for listening. Please take a few m…
 
Old school is not a bad place to be. In fact, it's really a fabulous place to still "learn" some very valuable lessons. Take for example Brian Buffini sharing some great (and never heard before recordings) from Earl Nightingale. I will mention the old part is that Earl was broadcasting and recording these fabulous and powerful success principles, e…
 
In the 6th of 7 lessons from "The Travelers Gift", it's all about forgiveness. So many powerful keys in this one and it really comes at us first for the forgiveness of ourselves. Since we all have our own past that we are dealing with and none of us have had a perfect life with no mistakes, forgiveness of ourselves is one of the most important thin…
 
Another Facebook live turned into something great to share. A few things that I got to listen to really made an impact on my about the power of perspective.

Another trip to the market got a whole lot better when I decided to get out of my comfort zone. All it took was waving to an older couple that I don't know, but the results were great. I think it's something we all need to do a little more often to people. Just a simple smile or a wave is all it takes. Try it. Share this message too as we need a lo…
 
On our continuous journey of sharing lessons from "The Traveler's Gift" - Success lesson #4 is about having a decided heart. Making choices in life, being in the moment with what we are doing, who we are with, what we want to do, etc. This is one of the 7 that I'm reading a different one every day for 7 days & then I keep doing it the next week. Ma…
 
Found a great picture with some powerful thoughts on living a better life. It is a simple formula with many pieces to it that if we only do a few of them - our lives can be better for us for sure. The key is that all of these, I think, are easy to understand the importance of them. This is a formula that should be shared over and over again as it c…

A few thoughts coming from the Napoleon Hill foundation. That is something you need to check out and connect with for sure. Any of his teaching, grab them and take them in.

Starting a summer reading program and one of the books was suggested by Tricial Miller for our Difference Maker Group. "The Travelers Gift" by Andy Andrews is a powerful book.. so far. I know it's going to be a life-changer and the first topic is all about taking responsibility & who doesn't need to do more of that. Thanks for listening. Please tak…
 
Had a great time this past weekend with our annual Memorial Golf Outing for the Class of 1984 from Detroit Catholic Central High School. More fun this year than ever before, probably because of what we all have come through over the last 15 + months or so. Lots of fun stories, sad stories, and some good and bad golf shots. The reflections about lif…
 
Just too many examples in today's world where people simply have to start doing the right thing. Way too many examples of people choosing to not do the right thing - we need to fix ourselves and be the example of simply trying to do the right things in life. Come On People - we can do this. The world needs us to do this. Thanks for listening. Pleas…
 
Recently, I was reminded about the importance of helping others & when we do that, we help many! John Maxwell helped to remind me from his Daily Reader about this. When we help one person, that person shares it (even if it's not intentional) with others. The more we all can do this, the better off we all will be. So many simple ways to positively a…
 
Finally got the guest train going again - it's been way too long and all my fault for not having guests on for so long. Jeff and I got to connect our schedules to pull this off and I can't tell you how happy I was to have him on again. Lot's of great conversations, catching up and of course the lessons that we all can learn from the good doctor. Si…

Hope is not going anywhere, and it won’t be cancelled!! Got rejuvenated today from Sam Crowley & John O’Leary.

Check out John O’Leary’s podcast HERE. It’s a powe…
 
Started the day with some readings that brought a great way to start the day - without dread. I did a Facebook Live in the sunshine before going into work where I shared some thoughts about how important it is to be mindful as to how we start our day. Looking forward to the day makes much more sense than starting the day in a negative sate of mind.…
 
This should have come out earlier, but with lot's of things going on, some things get turned around. There have been many things happening - all good of course, and I wanted to share some of them here. Quite frankly I need to do more of these things with loved ones and friends - and I think the same goes for you too. Life is going by very fast and …

After a great message from my friend Denyse - I wanted to share these thoughts with you to start your week of in a motivational direction. "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can."

I want to thank Sam Crowley for his inspiration and ideas on this one. Bouncing back from a terrible day or something going wrong - that is a key for all of us to try and do. It's a mindset to not let a bad day turn into more bad days and this is something I wanted to get out for everyone to listen to. Check out Sam's podcast HERE. From May, 2021 c…

This simple & powerful advice came from Russell Wilson talking with Jon Gordon. Listen to the podcast here. These points (and others) are some powerful reminders that we all need to have in our lives. I enjoy…
 
I got a great reminder from my friend Jeremy Todd recently on one of his podcasts, all about the ripple effect. The things that we do throughout life - it's like throwing a small pebble into a body of water and the ripples that go on and on from that act - we may only see for a few moments, but then the ripples do continue on in that water - both o…

Had a good weekend again with a great reminder from Brian Buffini. We need to always work on and update our bucket lists - especially during the times we are in now with the Pandemic. First and foremost - it gives us something to hope for, something to look forward to. Those things will help us get through difficult times. Plenty of people that don…
 
Just stopping on my way home, as I often do, and I had a good conversation with the manager at the store as she checked me out.

So I am driving - where you might here a few extra "sound bites" goi…

The other part of this was to connect to Jon Gordon and his …
 
Jon Gordon strikes again! From his book "The Power of Positive Leadership" - pg. 176. He's got some powerful reminders about why we should just do the work (whatever that work is that we need to do), no matter the distractions, the critics, nobody noticing, etc. The world needs more people to lead the way and simply do the work they need to do. Lea…
 
Had an inspirational moment I wanted to share with you from this past weekend coming out of the gym & I did something I always was telling myself that I would do. I stopped at the Conscious Cafe on Lakeside Blvd. on my way home and I met a great young guy by the name of Adam. We had a great conversation and I bout a little snack and a cup of coffee…
 
Couple of days late, but better to get this out late than to give up on it. This was from a FaceBook live video coming out of the gym where I wanted to share the message from one of John O'Leary's podcasts - find it here: https://johnolearyinspires.com/podcast/archive/steve-pemberton/ So many examples of how we all can be lighthouses for others and…
 
Another fantastic reminder from John Maxwell's Daily Reader - all about Embracing Responsibility. This is something I know I have to do and I know there are plenty of other people out there that this would help too. It's all part of an everyday attack for me on simply trying to get better. I've known about this for such a long time, but only recent…
 
Earlier this week I found myself recording some thoughts that I wanted to get out there to everyone. Well, add a few distractions around our house and I found myself putting this off. But, like the title says... We all got issues. In listening to Gary Vee's podcast. Everyone sucks too is something he reminds us about that truth. Nobody is perfect. …
 
Found a few things to share with you that have been on my mind as of late. So many things that we can get sucked into very easily, that we need to let go of. There needs to be a time that we catch ourselves from going down these negativity trails & rabbit holes - which will save us so much grief and troubles. It's not easy, but it's totally worth i…
 
Gotta find some time to renew, an hour or a week - we all need to find that time to recharge, re-think, renew and just make ourselves better. When we invest in ourselves - we can be better for others too. It's a decision, a choice that we have to make. In the evening. During a weekend or take a half day off of work and go do something that you real…
 
A recent Facebook live video gave me the idea to share it with you to start off this week (or any week you listen to this show). A recent John O'Leary podcast - brought up how to recover from grief & that we all have it in our lives.

Got a little bit of an idea recently from listening to Gary Vee - he mentioned something about him having his operating system for his life & I got connected to that concept right away. He mentioned some things that really got me fired up. Part of his operating system connects with what I need more of in mine. Compassion, kindness, empathy are just…
 
Starting off the week with a little "attitude" - it's got to be the right attitude. We have to make the decision to keep working on things that help us in our lives. Our attitude in how we take on our troubles and issues, makes all the difference. It's really a decision we have to make in order to make the best choices we can, each and every day. I…
 
One of the many things that the world doesn't need more of - are more hacks. Alan Stein Jr., in his book "Raise Your Game" brings us some great reminders about what being a hack is all about. It's cutting corners & not putting in the work into things that are part of our lives. The fundamentals still matter and it sees that fewer and fewer people a…
 
Got some great lessons from a friend - Tricia Miller - recently as she and her family have been going through some tough times. Now, I totally realize that there haven't been many that have not been going through tough times - but this show is about the lessons she shared with me that I thought were valuable enough to share with you. All of them co…
