Want to change your life for the positive and purposeful? Here are three "Morning Questions" to ask yourself every day:

Sometimes Our Talent isn't Good Enough...

September 1, 2013…

"The truth is, sometimes our talent IS 'good enough.' Other times, it isn't. But when our talent falls short, if we commit to going the extra mile with every fiber in our being, we will often surpass those who do have the talent."  - Shawn Anderson, Founder, Extra Mile America &  Extra Mile World

Wise Words from Harry Potter

August 27, 2013…

I confess, I have read every book in the Harry Potter series. I love the creativity and the story…especially JK Rowling's rags-to-riches story. These words of wisdom are from none other than Harry himself:

"If you want to know what a man is like, take a good look as how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."

If We Think Failure is Inevitable...It Is.

August 26, 2013…

"If we think failure is inevitable, it is. If we think our job is dull, it will be. If we tell a child he’s average, chances are he’ll perform that way. We have the ability to turn a situation into exactly what we predict. And we don't even need a crystal ball."
