All Gave Some. Some Gave All.

Ted served a 4-year term in the U.S. Navy, from ages 18-22. He was stationed in a small village in Vietnam for a full year after touring on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific as an engineman. He graciously agreed to talk about his…

Avoid Setbacks - Do a Duck Dive

Ocean Waves

Have you ever surfed or seen someone surf? It’s a fascinating journey to observe. A true surfer paddles her way through the waves and the currents of the ocean far enough out to be able to watch for the perfect wave to catch. But the journey out to that perfect wave isn’t typically smooth and flat. There are constantly waves coming at her, threatening to take her under or back to shore.…

Going the Distance

Triathlon Finisher

In a triathlon, you swim, then bike, then run.

In a long triathlon, you swim a LONG time, bike a LONG time, and then…run.  A LONG time.  In my first big triathlon, I had done all the physical training “right”.  I am a stickler for rules and training programs so I had done my part to prepare physically.  My nutrition was set.  I had my iPod ready with pump up music to get me…

Which Dog Will You Feed?

There is a battle going on in every single one of us.

An old Cherokee legend has it that a grandfather was teaching his grandson about life.  “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.  “It is a terrible fight and it is between two dogs. Dog 1 is evil.  He is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

Dog 2 is good.  He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness,…

Vince Lombardi, Hall of Fame coach of the Green Bay Packers, defined Mental Toughness as “sacrifice and self-denial combined with a perfectly disciplined will that refuses to give in. It’s a state of mind – you could call it ‘character in action.’”

Warrior or Worrier?

A couple of weeks ago, I met a client in a coffee shop.  We were meeting for her career coaching and I asked her why she wasn't applying for this certain job that would harness her capabilities in full.  She came up with a million reasons why she shouldn't apply for the job.  She nearly went on to explaining what would happen short of the world coming to an end.

The main reason she didn't apply was because she was afraid of rejection and failure.  I nearly laughed at her reply,…

Keep Pedaling: Part 2 - The Application

Here are the three areas of your life that I feel you need to constantly train to be the best you can be.



1. Spiritual Life

The success you have in your life will depend on your reliance and strength that comes from the One who created your life. I have to admit, for years I was not great at making this a huge priority in my life. I call myself a Christian but would neglect spending time learning and growing in Christ.



Through a series of events in my life, I have… Continue
