Healthy Living: Be Crabby and Embrace Change

I was reading a beautiful Holy Land Moments devotional recently and the writer used the way a crab grows to make a spiritual point. As I read the devotional it spoke volumes to me about why some people have such a difficult time changing negative habits.

The difference between crabs, humans and most other animals…

The spectrum between love and fear.

Fear and love occupy opposite ends of a spectrum that creates denial on one end and acceptance on the other. The stages along the way are ignoring, ridicule, anger, attacking, embarrassment, humility, bargaining, sorrow, compassion, and then ownership of our new perspective.
Our perspective drives our actions. Our actions create the consequences that affect our character and that is…

Oh, The Voices

At a time when the current voices feed us words that divide, degrade and disillusion, I decided to look for some voices that stand the test of time.  Our friend and mentor, Dan Miller, armed me last week with the book Great Quotes from Great Leaders. It takes a walk through the historical words of the most remarkable, like Ben Franklin, Nelson Mandela, Helen Keller and Douglas MacArthur.  

As a United Nations diplomat, humanitarian and First Lady of twelve years, Eleanor…

Never Stop Pursuing Your Dreams

"The journey itself is what prepares you to succeed at what you were born to do.  And until you decide to pursue your Dream, you are never going to love your life the way you were meant to."  -Bruce Wilkinson, The Dream Giver

One of my favorite inspirational books is Bruce Wilkinson's, The Dream Giver.  In this book, he tells the story of Ordinary who is a Nobody living in the Land of Familiar. (Is anyone identifying with Ordinary yet?)  Well, one day…

Fear of Failure – a Great Dance Partner

I don’t like feeling afraid. Scary movies (and big spiders) are not on my entertainment list. I also don’t like failing. Imagine my surprise recently when I discovered the fear of failure in my life could quite effectively motivate me.

Your mamma can’t dance

It all started with…

FDR Was Right!

During President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s inaugural speech in 1933, he said these now famous words, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.”  While FDR was talking about the worst economic crisis the U.S. had ever faced, this quote applies to any time we face fears in our lives.

For salespeople, one of the biggest fears they may face is closing sale, because they’re afraid they’re going to be turned down. Does this sound familiar? Do you struggle with closing the sale out…

Face Your Fears

I was shopping with Ashley when she was about ten years old and we passed a karaoke event going on in the center of the mall.  I wasn’t much interested but Ashley was curious so we paused and watched for a few moments.  The emcee for this event announced that anyone who would sing into the microphone would receive two free tickets to a family play at the prestigious Tennessee Performing Arts Center in downtown Nashville.  Ashley said, “Do it, Mommy! Do it!”  I replied, “Not in…

6 Ways of Dealing with your Dragons

Literature gives us lots of examples of heroes facing down dragons in lots of creative and heroic ways. From the mythical legend of Saint George, to the last desperate shot of Bard the Bowman at Lake Town, stories abound of valiant (and not-so-valiant) dragon-slayings. Like so many kinds of stories, dragon tales can teach us a lot about how to face the dragons in our own…

Fear or Regret?

What’s Scarier? Fear or Regret?

A wise man once said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do, than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do, than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

How to Get Over the Fear of Writing and Publishing

"The brave are simply those with the clearest vision of what is before them—glory and danger alike—and, notwithstanding, go out to meet it."

—Leopold (Hugh Jackman), Kate and Leopold

It takes a certain amount of bravery to be a professional writer or book author. It isn’t the act of writing itself that feels…

Do It Afraid!

One of the main things that can hold you back in pursuing your dreams is fear. I know because for many years I did not pursue my dreams because of fear.
