2014 Flames of Passion

My theme for 2014 is flames of passion. I've come to realize that nothing (creative) happens without passion. Another metaphor for passion is fire. The flames of a candle cuts through the darkness...visible at night as far away as 50 miles. The fire in the belly is often described of persons running for public office. When we notice our flames flickering, this is our cue to fuel-up! That what today's show is all about...fueling up your candle to allow your flame to burn inwardly and outwardly.

Obamacare is NOT a Train Wreck

Much has been said about Obamacare, aka the Affordable Care Act of 2010. One prominent U.S. senator has referred to the law as a train-wreck. Referencing this issue, I wrote a posting via my sister blogsite @Encouraging-People.com. Although the subject was thoroughly exercised, I've recorded the contents via this audio reading. As a 2nd benefit, hearing the vocal words of the written blogpost has given me an even deeper understanding of the political rift that distorts the greatness of the monumental task of executing a nationally affordable health care policy. Thus, hear my argument for Obamacare is NOT a Train Wreck.

Shutting Down Government 2013 with Obamacare

Anyone less than those under a rock or living in a cave knows of the impending 2013 U.S. Federal Government shutdown. Polls show that the majority of Americans blame House of Representatives Republicans. Yet be that as it may, ALL elected national political officials have a fudiciary duty to legislate and operate the Federal Government. The message is simple: Hey Congress, use your head...Just Say No! to a Federal Shutdown.

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...

It Just ain’t all that Serious

If you're anything like me, you sometimes take yourself TOO SERIOUSLY! I got to thinking about this topic because I happened to glance at myself in the mirror.

And what did I see? A worrisome and over-exaggerated version of a Mini Me. That got me to thinking...'Am I takin myself too seriously?' My alter ego chimed in a definitive: Yes!

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...

The Grieving of My Job Loss

Job-Loss.pngI lost my job...almost a year ago. Slowly, I've regained my footing. But WOW! it was dang tough.

One of the thing that I did was to record my thoughts the next day after my termination.

My emotions felt like a kick in the gut!@%$&
