Revisiting Virtue

When you die, what will be said about you? Will those who gather together to grieve your passing do so to honor the individual that you were or will they be there to close a door in life?

What about the workplace? Do the people who you work with speak of you well? Or, the moment that you are out of the room, does the gossip and rumors begin?

How about at home? Are you providing an example for your children to model their lives after? Or, will they grow up with an example of how not to live their lives before them? Continue reading “Revisiting Virtue”

The Strangest Secret

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wonder what the secret to success is?” Of course, you have. Everyone has at some point in time or another. Maybe those exact words weren’t in your brain but some variation of it definitely has come up. How can I get ahead? How can I make this thing work? How can I win at life? These questions are all variations of this question. Continue reading “The Strangest Secret”

What’s Your Story?

I have lost track of the number of times that I have heard someone say, “they just don’t know me.” The message behind that statement: Someone has made an assumption about the type of person that you are.

Do you ever feel like you work and work and work to just get by in life? No matter how hard you try, you still end up fighting to bridge the gap from one paycheck to the next?

Start Winning

What are you passionate about and to what lengths would you go to experience those things? For years, I worked in a variety of jobs out of necessity, not really doing anything that I enjoyed but merely surviving. I had to have a job if I wanted to have a home. I needed to have a job if I intended to continue to have a legally licensed vehicle. The jobs weren’t terrible. I worked at McDonald’s flipping burgers. I made headlights at North American Lighting. I put together Oprah magazine at R&R Donnelly’s. I worked in the dairy department for Wal-Mart and even drove a fork truck for Coca Cola for a few months.

Those jobs were fine. They paid the bills. I definitely was not passionate about them. Continue reading “Start Winning”

Your Personal Vision Statement

Future life improvement is something that we should all desire and, I feel, most people truly do, even if it is in small, baby steps.

What am I going to do differently next year in order to improve myself? What am I going to do differently in order to prepare myself a little better for whatever is next in life?
