Are you thinking like a Fifth Grader?

Things a Fifth Grader would think or say:

I don't need a coat (even though there is snow on the ground)

I'm not tired (as they yawn)

I don't like that (although they have never tried it)

I'm allergic to that food (because it looks gross)

In her book Father Hunger, Margo Maine talks about being stuck in childish forms of reason. I have seen this with clients and often marvelled at a 30, 50 or even 70 year… Continue

"Don't Quit, Keep Playing" (Something emailed to me) - Merry Christmas

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin..a mother returned to

Her seat and discovered that her child was missing

Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.

To her horror, the mother saw her little boy

Sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out

'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.'

At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and

Whispered in the boy's… Continue

Merry Christmas

God said “Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness..” Gen 1:26 So God created man in His own image: in the image of God He created him; male & female He created them. Gen 1:27 “….God is love.” 1 John 4:8 Therefore we are love. We were created by love. We were created to love. We were created to be loved. We were “fearfully & wonderfully made. Marvelous are His works”. Psalm 139:14 God made us each on purpose, with a plan. He “..formed our inward parts.” .. Psalm 139:13.… Continue

Goal Setting

We are at that time of year when people set goals only they are not called Goals they are called Nwew Years resolutions. Every year the media seeems to delight in telling aboout how people fail to keep their resolutions. I don't believe in them but,I believe in Goals. Ihave looked at some possible goalsetting tapes ,books, and CD's. One man I read about does not believe inn goal setting. He is nevertheless a self proclaimed expert. I think the best tape series must be Zig Ziglar's series on… Continue

Oy To The World!

Merry Christmas, I wanted to share this short story I wrote based on my experience last Christmas I hope you enjoy!

It is December and I am excited! I’m not sure if it’s the upcoming Christmas season or the opportunity to go through my attic once again and uncover the decorations we packed away last year. I’m getting ready to let my inner decorator out.

I finished my shopping at a neighborhood store, proud that I was supporting a local merchant, and because of the “sale,”… Continue

In 2009, Less Self and More Help!

In the past year, I have dedicated much time helping thousands discover the magic formula:

Purpose + Passion = Performance.

It is no secret: one of the most important ingredients of living a prosperous life is knowing that what you do every day brings value to others. When money is not the motivating factor, but the desire to serve others is, ironically money often follows. Yet when we put money first and serving others second, it never seems to work out the way we… Continue

The L'Oreal Lookout

There’s hope for me yet! Today, the Tennessean reported on a new Silver Alert program to help track wandering seniors afflicted with dementia. Similar to an Amber Alert, it would notify officials to be on the look out for Grandpa.

My fellow Baby Boomers (yes, I am young but I slipped in the last year of the Baby boom)—-things are not looking good for us. It is estimated that 10 million of us will be afflicted with Alzheimer’s in the coming years.

But I’m getting ahead of… Continue

How Does Someone Make Their Dream Happen

I have often thought it best to come up with practical business ideas that do not cost a lot of money to start. The problem with most opportunities I come up with is They are cost prohibitive,They are not interesting or there is too much of a learning curve. I like the idea of crearting work but, practicality and Money come into play. So I wonder what someone is to do in that situation. We have all heard of The Secret and The Law Of Attraction. I do not believe in Magic. I have also heard a… Continue

Well yesterday turned out to be a massive roller-coaster ride. For those who've been following my professional struggles, you'll know that I've been faced with a quick decision to stay at the company or leave and strike out on my own. The latter decision is quite daunting as we don't have much in the way of savings (having been trying to pay off student loans), and the job I was looking at starting required a customer base which means that it would take a while to build an income.

On… Continue

The Bailout Patch

Is our government addicted to the act of rewarding bad behavior?

Let's see: Bad decisons...you're bailed out! Mismanagement...who cares? You're bailed out. Greed/deception...bailed out! Can't sell cars...you're bailed out! The list now reads: Bear Sterns, IndyMac, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Citibank, AIG, Ford, Crysler, and GM, Who's next? Last I looked, the line looked a little shorter at Starbucks.

Is this the new America? What happened to the risk in business? What… Continue

I CAN'T is the worst Toxin

The most dangerous toxicity is of the mind. Your mind controls your body function, your actions, your direction in life.

We recently attended a motivational teleclass. The speaker addressed 2 voices in each of us.




He said he wondered how he could give the same speech to hundreds of people and a few would say, "Yeah! I CAN do that" and many would say "I CAN'T do that".

He pointed out that we… Continue

Motorcycle Truism Number 9: If it’s not scratched, you’re not having enough fun.

In dual sport or adventure motorcycling, the truism is, “If it’s not scratched, you’re not having enough fun.” Our motorcycles are made for riding the trails. That’s why we buy them, and riding trails is what we do with them. And out on the trail, at some point, every rider is bound to fall. It’s not unusual for me to take a spill once or twice on every trip I make on the trail. When the motorcycle slides against the rocks or down into the dirt, things are bound to get scratched, (the… Continue

Why “Old School” Network Marketing Doesn’t Work Anymore

Have you ever wondered if there was something the top distributors in the network marketing industry understood but for some reason they weren't sharing this information with you? If so, you are not alone. Many a distributor has pondered this same thought.


It's simple.

When you are struggling, are lacking in success in the industry and can't seem to figure out why others are having more success than you at a much faster rate you start to wonder these types… Continue

Are Your Investments Pro-Life?

Are you pro-life or pro-abortion? Are your investments pro-life or pro-abortion? Do you even know? A typical mutual fund has exposure to many companies involved in various capacities within the abortion industry. Here are eight examples:

Abortion Companies can fall into eight main categories:

1) Companies manufacturing substances that are used to voluntarily terminate pregnancy.

2) Companies manufacturing emergency substances that are taken within 120 hours… Continue

Tips to improve your life

Today it is your family life.

Talk to your children. Easier said than done, don’t you agree?

I remember when my daughter was getting a little older and she was at the stage when they simply don’t talk to you like they did in the early days.

So I decided, before she went to bed I would go and hang out in her room. Just hang. I did not ask a lot of questions, or anything like that. I just kind of hung around, for at least 5-8 minutes. As she got a little more… Continue

Only a Dad- Happy Anniversary Jay!

20 years ago on a crisp Montana morning, Jay and I got married. It was such a wonderful day and I remember clinging to every second of the day knowing how quickly it would fly by. (I also remember considering myself an “older” bride at 24. Ha.)

Little did I know that those feelings of time flying by was just a precursor to 20 years disappearing in a wink. It’s also amazing to look back at how our love and relationship have changed and grown. Those first giddy feelings of love pale in… Continue

Sometimes help comes from a bald head…

There is a story in today’s aol nice one page that was quite moving. The story is titled: Third Graders Make Smooth Move for Classmate

It seems that Eight Utah elementary students are showing their support of a fellow classmate by taking one for the team.

When third-grader Emmalee Havertz missed a whole month of school for treatment of a rare liver cancer, the course of chemotherapy…
