I don’t know who said it first, but I’m saying it now, so I shall take the credit. You are my witness. Experience is often called the best teacher. Hogwash! Experience is the last teacher. Other people’s experience is the better teacher. (Andy Andrews has said something similar, I know:).
Books are probably the best way to learn from others’ experiences. And, as I rarely read anything that isn’t at least close to great nowadays, most of the books I read are “one of the most important…Continue

"The purpose of human life is to serve and show compassion and the will to help others."
We live in a world that what is described in the quote is not always the case. There are many professions that people make that imply they are helping others but often they are self-serving at best. If only every individual would make it their mandate to serve and show compassion to those they come in contact…

Highlights from Part One:
- Discovering your Dream or Calling!
- How to move toward the Dream
- What does the process look like?
- Should the focus be on the goal or the process?
And now for the long awaited, A Risk Worth Taking (Part 2)
Consider with me for a moment if you will, the question, “What is the most important element to you realizing your dreams? Maybe you think: persistence, planning,…Continue

It takes a brave person to draw a line in the sand and commit to living life differently than the way she saw her parents bumping through it. (Jump to the podcast.)
And, while she is very open with the fights she’s fought over the last 14 years, she is determined to come out of recovery as a stronger, more confident…Continue

A Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all in the U.S.! Of course, being thankful is a universal idea.
As usual, I'll be crashing several large gatherings today as a ruse to loadup on holiday goodies. O'course there's not a whole lotta storage space in my spandex drawers. And I gotta to be careful not to weigh myself down too much or I'm liable to hit a rain gutter (or worse) on take-off. So, I'm limiting myself to just one slice of pie...one slice of pumpkin, one slice of pecan, one slice…Continue

I love Thanksgiving...
It's just about my favorite holiday.
I think everyone should find something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving...unless you're a turkey.
Thanksgiving might not be as fun for you if you're a turkey.
But I digress...
I have so much for which to be…
This year has been quite a ride, as was for many of us. Most are worried about what the future holds and feel the need to keep chugging away at the tasks at hand and hold on to what sameness or reality we can. But there are some that recognize life events for what they are, and know that all they have is…Continue

This blog is my chronicle. I'm hoping it will be an epic of transformation on what I am learning as a man and entreprenuer. I'm not sure if starting a business to develop myself into a stronger man is a great idea, if it's too much risk with my wife and 15 month old daughter. I'm sure though that I need accountability, and that I don't have people running up and making me accountable. There aren't people around me challenging me constantly, because I'm not in a place where I have to raise…Continue

"I'm going to get to see David today, mom!"
Judy came running down the stairs, and almost stepped on the dog before sliding into the kitchen.
"Honey, I wish your brother could be here today too. I miss him a lot."
Susan was getting tired of trying to explain to her daughter that David was still in Europe fighting the war. The girl was only eight and was very adamant…Continue

My dear hubbie and I love to celebrate the milestones in our girls' lives. We take pictures, create photobooks and save mementos from important events. One of our favorite and long lasting ways to commemorate a mile marker for our children, however, is give them a Story Ornament every…Continue

Without a doubt, it burns in me to help young people (around ages 13-24) succeed! My parents did not offer me much direction or guidance so I want better things for those young people who want better things for themselves. It is my desire to help them realize the most fantastic, the most farfetched, the most loftiest dream for their lives! It is understandable some might be scared (reluctant might be a…Continue
I just posted this on TeamEagleRevolution.com, but I figured I'd share it here too.
I am writing this at 10:47 pm...pretty late for a dad of four kids (when did we get up to four?)
I am writing late because I am trying to relax. I figured one of the best places to unwind my nerves was here on my blog. I couldn't get any sleep because I am anxious.
I just got off the phone with…Continue
One of the most unnerving feelings is walking along, not paying attention and step on something both warm and wet. In our home we have maybe three things that could make such a situation happen. Sarah Anne who is two and in the process of learning and earning the privilege of wearing big girl panties, one of our three dogs who didn't make it outside…Continue

I was earning a living wage each year and advancing and miserable. I disagreed with the message I was expected to give at the job. Switched to a phone sales job with a base plus commission. It was a raise. Got tapped by an insurance company that let me sell some products I love and switched to that giving up my base. The business model for the insurance company exhausted all my funds. Spent 1.5 thousand dollars. Got a new job the next day doing commission only advertizing sales as…Continue

Happiness is a subject that's near and dear to my heart. And lately, I've been thinking about it a lot. I have observed people for many years and I've notice certain things that cultivate happiness as well as things that's keep it away.
Some of the people I've met who are always chasing happiness and never getting closer to it seem to have something in common. They treat happiness as something they have absolutely no control…Continue
