The Easy Road

February 18, 2010...

"I'll do it tomorrow." I've said it in my life a lot.

"I'm tired...it can wait." Yeah...I've liked that one a few times, too.

"Oh...what's one more day?" That's a good one, too, isn't it?

Excuses.

They makes us feel better for a moment, but get to used to using them and they can wage war on your goals and success.

What are you passing forward?

 

February 17, 2010...

What are you passing forward?

What energy...what attitudes...what words?

Are you leaving each person with whom you come in contact more positive...or less?

Whatever you are passing forward, rest assured that it will return to you.

C-o-l-d before h-o-t.

February 16, 2010...

Let me start off by saying that I am lucky. In fact, everyone who lives in southern California is lucky at this time of the year. Sure, our perfect weather is a "little-less perfect" right now...but "Whoa, Nelly!"...let's be realistic! When we see on the news what our friends in other places of this great big country are experiencing, then we need to count our blessings.

But still, I want to write about being c-o-l-d.

Happy President's Day!

February 15, 2010...

I have always been a fan of President's Day.

I like to read about former Presidents and how they reached the most powerful political office in the world. The specific questions sparking my keenest interest revolve in learning "What did they have to do to get there?"

It's in that question that we each share common ground with American history's most famous people.

"What do we have to overcome to go where we want to go?"

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

To each of you who read what I write? Thank you.

From the bottom of my heart, you are deeply appreciated.

Please know I will continue to do my best to add a small boost of encouragement to your world, your hopes and your dreams...

With gratitude,

Garbage out...self-mastery in

February 13, 2010...

I love running on the beach. It is exhilarating, idea generating and empowering. It's always a highlight of my day. Every once in awhile, however, the ocean really throws back onto the beach all the garbage we have so carelessly thrown into it. And on those days, I cringe and my run is far less enjoyable. It hurts to see what we are doing close-up to the earth.

But...it also serves as a lesson.

"Kid School"

February 12, 2010...

Recently, I splashed through rain puddles. And it was fun. Forget the fact that my shoes got soaked all the way through to my socks. Forget the fact that I am 47.

Do remember that it was completely liberating.

Be your own pace-setter

February 11, 2010...

A few months ago, I was doing my normal running thing on the beach. I was feeling pretty darn fantastic pushing myself at a comfortable pace when all of a sudden I was startled by a runner who blew past me. At first, I was inspired to try and match this runner's pace. I even duplicated his sand print strides in my effort to match his much faster speed.

"I can do that, too!"

And then I got tired. And then I stopped. And then I walked.

A lesson from an UNsubscriber

February 10, 2010...

Recently, I had a subscriber to my weekly M.A.P. to Success Circle! newsletter UNsubscribe. That's not the way things are supposed to work. What's supposed to happen is that each reader finds a valuable nugget, and then forwards the newsletter on to others who might benefit as well.

But again...it didn't work like that.

A Bee's Sting

February 9, 2010...

Have you ever been stung by a bee?

Those of us that have definitely know that this little insect can certainly carry quite the big-time "OUCH!". I was reminded today of that ouch feeling. Except it wasn't a bee. And it wasn't physical.

It was a mental sting.
