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...

Conversations about Fathers Day

FeltonMilteer4by6.jpgCelebrating Father's Day conjures up thoughts...both good as well as not so good. Dads shape the well-being of their offspring. Memories of Dad floods our hearts with so much emotion. As we prepare for Sunday's 2013 Father's day event, I reflected back upon my own relationship with Daddy.

As you listen in, think back to your own Dad-relationship. Share if you like, or simply pick out the similarities between mine and yours. Happy Father's Day!

Ever wonder how you can stretch the 24 hours of a day into 28 hours?

Truth is, we can accomplish this herculean feat by following a really simple formula…

Wearing corporate gray, out with the old and in with the new.

Trouble is, the leadership lessons learned in the Army are invaluable tools.As true as this is, I didn't recognize this fact until...[stick around for the rest of the story]

Whois Afraid of North Korea

Obama_Kim_Jong_Un_Mirror.jpgWith all of the saber-rattling, it appears that the old battle of good v. evil, Cold War is rearing its ugly head...at least as far as North Korea is concerned. The NORTH is proclaiming not only as having nuclear capabilities, but is actively broadcasting its intent to employ said weaponry [WMD] toward South Korea and Japan.

On the other hand, the US has responded with a show of strength in the form of Naval battle groups, intelligence analysis, and media communication. As a consequence, the possibility of WAR is quite real. Diplomacy can be an effective tool, yet that path has been visited previously. This week's show picks apart the question: Whois Afraid of North Korea?

Romancing the Bro

TwoMen.jpgFriendship is Priceless! Agreed? Male bonding, a dying art, is 2nd only to having a loyal hunting dog. There is also a new one-liner in town -- out of Washington, D.C.

Tagged to describe President Obama's charm offensive and wooing the Republican lawmakers, the media termed it "Bromancing".

Using a play-on-words, I'm putting my own spin on it to describe my friendship with my [guy] friend. Stick around and tune in to Romancing the Bro...

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?

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!
