How to Control Your Life


The self-help movement teaches that we are the "Captains of our ship". Simply believe and [then] achieve! -- goes the mantra. After experiencing Earthly life for 1/2 century, my conclusion is that we don't control our lives. My viewpoint is that life is given and received. The amazing thing is that The Creator also gifted humans with the power of choice -- aka, Free Will -- to exercise autonomy of choice management of this gift of life. We are Life Managers; listen-in to learn more...

Ya Gotta Hold On

Lady hanging in a treeListening to one of my favorite music groups gave me inspiration for this week's radiocast.  Alabama Shakes features a powerful female vocalist that belts out the mantra that is the new national anthem for we students of personal success and development. Through it all -- through thick and thin -- we just gotta hold on! No special potions or spells..no magic pills..just a redundant emphasis upon the principle and perseverance to HOLD ON!

The Easy Way to set Goals

LeBron James Basketball GoalGoal-setting educational resources has become a cottage (lucrative) industry. Whether your issues/problem/desire or goal is to lose weight, improve your love life, advance in your career or get a new job, we've been taught to become goal oriented. Achieving our goals is supposed to makes us happier...Right?

Goals are a necessary part of everyday living and actualization. Yet we fail to realize is that getting to (goal) Yes! isn't the point. What is the point? The point is that there is no point. We must come to the place in life -- enunciated best by Shakespeare -- To Be or Not to be, That is the Question...

Letter C stands for Commitment

U.S. Marines (Commitment)Just because you work or stick with something for a long time doesn't (necessarily) mean that you are committed.

I have begun consulting within an area that I happened to be good at. Yet, I know that my commitment is not there. How do I know or recognize this self-revelation? Because my head is engaged; my heart is not.

Thus, the Letter 'C' stands for commitment. Do you have commitment?

Its Spring Break Time Again

getty_springbreak.jpg

College students, educators, parents, and K-12 students are fixin to enjoy Spring Break Week! The practice began shortly after WWII -- mirroring the Easter traditional commemoration.Spring Break has benefits for non-educational vocations as well. The need for all human beings to slow down, rest, and to take a break.

If many of us can't simply take off from work for a week, then maybe we can use our imaginations to reap some of that Spring Break Mojo...

Why I Am a Recycling Freak

I admit it. I am a Recycling Freak!!! Sometimes I have trouble understanding why everyone doesn't share my passion for recycling. In a nutshell, recycling makes sense for 3 reasons:

  1. Saves the Planet.
  2. Encourages thriftiness and good citizenship.
  3. Is Good Busine$$

The rewards vs. efforts are unbalances...a 3-to-1 reward return on effort whenever we practice recycling. Listen to this radio episode, hear my side, and maybe you too will catch the Spirit of Recycling...

2012 was the Year of Guns Outta Control

The old adage of Guns don't kill people, People kill people...just doesn't cut it anymore. Our children were murdered within the most sacred of all public arenas --our schools. People are fed up; the President is Mad! We must have a National Discussion about Gun safety; strong and corrective action is needed now!

While preserving our 2nd Amendment rights, it is possible to support and defend, yet also preserving the life, liberty, and prosperity of all citizens. The year 2012 brought over 90,000 shootings. Most infamous were the Colorado movie theater shooting, the Trayvon Martin shooting, and of course...SANDY HOOK! My message is this: LET'S HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT GUNS!
