Trust your gut, don’t lose faith, press onward

Make sure your roots are not shallow. Make sure you know your why. Make sure you spend the time investing in the relationships that matter, the ones that will last. They are gonna come. They are gonna come HARD. The haters, the doubters, the naysayers. The don’t want you to succeed. Many of them will […]

When others are sleeping, GET IT DONE.

Early mornings are powerful. In the US only 1 in 5 is awake at 5:30am. Only 8 out of 100 are up at 5:00am. 8 freaking people that’s it. In a sense that’s your competition. If you typically get up at 7:00 and but instead you shift your day to 5:00 you will effectively be […]

Priorities.

Life hits us with priority distracting craziness on an hourly, no minutely basis. Each little distraction is wrapped with a nice little bow and a tag that says “Hey, I’m really important, and awfully urgent, please pay attention to me, RIGHT NOW dangit” 1 out of 100 of those distractions are actually worthy of our […]

Take time to develop relationships that last.

Relationships are hard work. Really hard work. Investments really. No shortcuts, no silver bullets, no love at first sight. Relationships are little delicate slow growing trees. They need to be tended to, they need to be watered. They need to be encouraged and cared for in order to grow. Even with all the work, sometimes […]

PUSH ONWARD

You know the days when you’re really tired, you’re just wiped out from the difficulties of life. The times when your legs feel like mush, you’re not sure you can actually continue, but you’re not anywhere near the end. You’re overwhelmed, you’re under prepared, and under motivated. Things are not going well, and you have such […]

Actually having teenagers doesn’t suck.

I’m not saying it’s not going to be hard though. “I freaking can’t WAIT until my kids are out of the house” she said with a serious look, the kind of look that you know you shouldn’t question. It was the same response I’ve gotten many times. Here’s another one, “How old are your kids?” […]

Hindsight is always 20/20.

Knowing what you know now, it’s powerful. It would have been so amazing to know it then. When you started, when you needed to know. You didn’t though. You didn’t know then what you know now. You simply didn’t have the luxury of the experience and wisdom that you have now. So what are you […]

Embrace wisdom from experience.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. ~Confucius Time will deliver if you’re listening, incredible wisdom.   It’s easy to dismiss life experience for the more “attractive” energy of youth. After all, who doesn’t love […]
