  2. Be a Blessing 

    As we seek to improve ourselves and our lives, let’s not forget about one of the most rewarding aspects to the pursuit of our success.

  3. Visualize the Results, Love the Process

    At times, I find myself in conversations with people who are always jumping from idea to idea, business plan to business plan, from one great thing to the next.

  9. Bad Moments or Bad Days

    I want you to think of one of the “worst days” of your life and what happened to cause it? Many times, it is a bad moment and our response to it that allows it to spiral into other bad moments or an entire day. “Bad” things will happen to us daily.
