“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man” ~George Bernard Shaw

 

It’s easy for me to say that I’m a fairly reasonable kind of guy, but not really. I’ve…

Group Leader
Humility Is...Parenting

Last night I had the pleasure of actually going out on a date with my husband. A real date, like leaving-children-at-home-and-being-adults time. So important in a marriage, and so, so hard to squeeze in with young kids, I know.



We went and saw a documentary at our local retro theater, the Belcourt. (Fascinating theater and story, by the way). Anyway, the movie we watched was Buck. Essentially about the… Continue

Don’t confuse simplicity with ease

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”  –ALBERT EINSTEIN



It is often said, “Keep it simple.”  But don’t over-simplify simplicity!  Network marketing isn’t easy.  In other words, don’t confuse simplicity with ease.

 

Challenge for today:

Understand that one must identify the method for sharing the business opportunity that works best for them.  In…

It's Not Your Fault If You Hate Your Job!

It's not your fault if you hate you job, but you are to blame if you stay there! I had the "priveledge" to visit  a headhunting agency a few years ago, when I walked in the receptionist barley glancing up from her computer, hands me a pile of papers to fill out.Here I sit answering questions about skills, past jobs, and ideal work, only to have it disregarded and offered an…

48 Seconds More!

OK.  You listened to my advice and did a proper application.  Congratulations, you've taken the first step.  Now read carefully.  The first 48 seconds of your interview are critical.  The hiring choice is often made in the first few seconds of the interview.  Let me rephrase that.  The decision NOT to hire is often made in the first few seconds.  You never get a second chance to make a first impression is the rule of the day here.

When you go into the interview room you need to be…

Success seems to be connected with action

“Success seems to be connected with action.  Successful people keep moving.  They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.”

Keep moving.  Keep your eye on the prize (specific, written…

Banking for Normal People-Some Bank Scams/Fraud

Have you ever received an email saying you just won a lottery in Africa? The email goes on to say just send us $3000 to claim your $1 million. Believe it or not this is something people fall for on a daily basis. The first thing they do when they do not receive their money is call their bank. The second thing they do, based on the information the bank gives them, is call the police.

    Most banks will try to work with you as much as possible, but keep in mind you are the one that sent…

I Am a Tree in a Story about a Forest

I suppose this kind of thinking or realization comes with age. I’ve heard it said before that when we’re 16, we worry about what everyone else thinks; and when we’re 40, we don’t care about what anyone else thinks; however when we’re 60, we realize that nobody is thinking about us, because they’re all thinking…

Giver of the day: Mike Myers

No not that Mike Myers.

Michael Lynn Myers was born in Southern Illinois in 1950. He was raised in poverty, lost both parents at a young age, got drafted, and spent much of his young adult life traveling around the country taking odd jobs. He met my mom in Colorado Springs in the early 1970's and soon after convinced her to marry him.

Mike Myers is my dad.

He is also the father to my 5 brothers and 3 sisters. If you have 9 children in your family people ask "from 1…

Flying High

 

My daughter and some friends decided to go to Miami for a vacation this week. The plane left about an hour late. When it arrived it couldn't get up to the ramp because of lightening. It was raining. They landed an hour later than expected. She was not happy. She expected to be having a ball with her friends, but instead she was shaking her head at Mother Nature. …

We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not an act, but a habit

“We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”  ARISTOTLE

 

We are the product of thousands of seemingly insignificant daily choices.  Our repetitive actions shape us and mold us.  From how we eat and exercise, to how we think, act and respond to situations, we are what we repeatedly do.

 

Challenge for today:

Focus on each decision you make today, no…

Leveraging the Candle

We tend to look hard for passions, but a lot of times, passions are driven from past experiences. Things we’ve overcome due to difficulties. Life gives us pretty good reason to believe that we’re always going to be over coming difficulties, or struggles throughout our life. It’s apart of what makes us who we are, and…
