There are times in all of our lives when we will feel as though we won’t make it through. The upcoming major test. The impending divorce. The two weeks notice on your house. The pink slip on your desk. The red tag on your door. The cancer diagnosis. Each of these moments fills us with anxiety, frustration, and even anger. That’s it’s all not happening like we think it should. That it’s been a waste of time. That it’s unfair. Read more…

There is a misunderstanding that we will overcome all our struggles. That will not happen as long as we live for struggle is part of life. Being victorious in the struggle is very possible. And that begins with an acknowledgment that we are struggling, embracing the experience, and having the courage to face what we ultimately want to defeat.


Plans and Wills (Soul. Musings. 01/03/17)


Of all the things that can offer satisfaction in life, reaching your goals would seem to be the most important. We all have goals but very few of us reach them. For whatever reason, we get sidetracked, we get lost, we let stuff get in the way. And we never get to where we think we should go yet still yearning deep on the inside for that real satisfaction.

Use the Potential You Have and It Suddenly Becomes Enough (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 358)


“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
— William Faulkner

How much time do we waste thinking that we are not enough or that we don’t have enough or know enough to make progress? How much time do we waste wishing we had more talent, more skill, and more potential to be and do more. How much potential and talent do we actually waste while we waste time doing all that thinking and wishing. Read more…

The One In the Arena (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 348)


“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again…”
— Theodore Roosevelt

There are two types of people in the world: spectators and participators. Each group of people can be characterized by two traits. Spectators are those who sit on their hands and wait for the world to change while complaining and grumbling about unfavorable conditions. Participators are those who channel their energy and ability to make some difference around them; they willingly take the hits and blows because they know what they’re fighting for matters. Spectators have no clue as to what it feels like to win or lose. Participators know the feeling of both and that pushes them to keep fighting. Read more…

Safety calls us to just exist; courage demands that we live.


The Courage to Live (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 299)


“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
— Benjamin Franklin

We live in a society that constantly expresses the idea of conscious safety. Courage is all but lost to most of the human race. At the least, it is assigned to police officers, military members, or for that rare single soul that has traveled the distance from rags to riches. We never once stop to think that we can all live daringly and bravely if we just tried. Read more…

Stop Ignoring Your Goals (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 293)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #25)

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.”
— Brian Tracy

Most people have no clue about the massive ability and capacity we have to set a goal and focus all our time, energy, and resources on accomplishing that one thing. Goals give us something to focus on and give us an excuse not to turn our attention to something else for any length of time. Once we master a goal, we have momentum to set and accomplish the next one. Read more…
