There is no silver bullet

January 24, 2010...

Some people seem to be on a perpetual quest to find that once-in-a-lifetime get-rich-quick scheme.

"If I can only find that one opportunity...everything will just come easy!"

How lucky can we get?

"Statistically, the probability of any of us being here is so small that you'd think the mere fact of existing would keep us all in a contented dazzlement of surprise."

"It is what it is."

"It is what it is."

That's how I have learned to deal with news. The bad kind.

Instead of creating an emotional frenzy for myself, I accept it.

Again, "It is what it is."

"An Attitude of Gratitude"

January 21, 2010...

I have two kinds of goals in my life. External goals. And internal goals.

The external goals? Well, they give my life purpose. They are the goals that are tied to making my life count. They are the goals that can be seen. They are the "bricks" of my life.

Throwing in the Towel

It's easy to want to do at times.

"Just survive!!"

January 19, 2010...

The events and circumstances of our individual lives can take a toll.

From them, it is easy to grow weary and make much less effort to dream and push ourselves. Our biggest goal simply becomes coping. At times, most of us have fallen victim to this "Just survive!" mentality.

Will tomorrow be better?

January 18, 2010...

I was sent an email recently that when melted down to its core simply read: "I hate my life. Can you guarantee tomorrow will be any better?"

Hmmm...can I really guarantee tomorrow will be better?

Everyday Lessons

January 17, 2010...

I was asked where I get my ideas for my newsletter and my blogs.

The answer is easy: I get ideas from everywhere.

In conversations. From books. From the news. From a movie. From something I see while running.

"Later" Starts "Now"

January 16, 2010...

Later, when the dust clears and you can see the consequences of previous individual decisions, you'll notice a trend: It feels better to have made the hard choice.

1. Later, you wish you had had one less drink.

The other end of the phone...

January 15, 2010...

Courtesy and kindness go a long, long way to making life better.
