It is magnificent to take action now and really live your dream. January of each year is full of talk about dreams. Between the start of the new year and the Martin Luther King holiday, there seems to be talk of nothing but dreams. In a way, this is a good thing. In another way, it is sad. The reason for the sadness is that a dream has almost no worth if a person does not take action to make the dream come true.
When you have a dream it is important to work, to do something to make the dream come true. Faith without work is dead and no one wants to be the owner of a dead dream. At the same time, when you take action on your dream, make sure the action is real and that you are not sabotaging your dream without realizing it. For example, recently I was speaking with a group of entrepreneurs about going from dreams to reality. The discussion revolved around the idea of writing checks for some dream amount the entrepreneur would earn in the future. The filled-in checks were to be placed where they could be seen each day. This visual cue was thought to be a source of motivation.Continue reading →
There will always be people who do not believe in the great and wonderful things you can do. Make sure you are not one of them!
Believe in yourself and give yourself the victory, not defeat.
I was talking to a friend recently who was full of defeat. She had plans to do a bunch of things, go to school, buy a house, get a better job, be a better mother. She was complaining that she was failing in all her efforts and that nothing she touched worked out and that it never would. Her husband tried with all his might to convince her to keep going, to look at things in a positive light, to be encouraged and to stay strong. She just could not let go of the defeat.
My son is sixteen years old. Ever since he could talk he just assumed, inferred, and stated that everyone liked him, everyone was his friend, and he could literally do anything in the world. He never let things like reality and hard times deter him from his belief that life will turn out wonderfully. I admire his optimism. I like the fact that he believes in himself and that God will bless his efforts.Continue reading →

It is fantastic to share the secret of your home and work balancing act. Almost everyone knows someone who has the home/work balancing act all wrong. These people are easy to recognize. It is the co-worker who is always in danger of getting fired for handling all his personal affairs on company time. It is the mom who never has time for her husband and kids because she is either always at work or taking care of work when she is at home.Continue reading →

Sometimes life is hard, but so what! That is when you need inspiration to push forward. No matter how hard life is, you still have to live it. Find a source of inspiration even when things are hard.
Hard times come and go. The problem is that hard times feel like they are going to last forever! It is like when you go for a massage or are watching a great movie. During those pleasurable things, time seems to speed up. The hour-long massage feels wonderful but like it was only 30 minutes. The great movie seems to be over in the blink of an eye. But, hard things like waiting to hear about the condition of a loved one who has been hurt or meetings to discuss business problems seem to last forever. During the bad times, the bad experience seems to last three or four times as long as the clock says has passed.Continue reading →
It is wonderful to stand tall and proud in the face of unfair opposition, even if that means you have to wear a mask.
As a young child, I remember wanting to be a black panther. I liked the idea of fighting against oppression and making the world a better place for my people. My career as a Panther was cut short before it even began. I was not allowed off the front steps, I was not allowed to use the telephone and I was denied access to the postal service.Continue reading →
