Paying It Forward

Most of us know what the above title means. And I’m hoping that we have all had the opportunity to do this. It is so simple to do that I think it would happen more often if we just thought about it. I have a friend that works at a restaurant and he told me

Or So I Thought…

We are sent here to this planet to make a difference – I always felt it. Now I know it. We are given essential tools and talents and it is our job to make something of what we have. And what do we have? Eyes to see; ears to hear; a brain to think; arms

Receive Change

On that day when my life changed, I had a choice. I could resist what was happening, or I could receive change into my life and move forward with it. Those two words, “resist” or “receive” make the difference in our life experience. Life happens. While we wish it wasn’t so, tragedy happens. Change is

Taking Charge

One of the blessings I have always been grateful for is the knowledge of knowing that I am in charge of my own life. Now, you might think that sounds pretty silly coming from me – a man – a quadriplegic man – confined to a wheelchair for the last 14 years. And it is

Are We Not All Beggars?

Are we all not beggars? Chad Hymas goes homeless downtown in the the streets of Salt Lake City last Saturday afternoon. A couple weeks ago I heard a marvelous talk by Mr. Jeff R Holland. His words pierced me to the very core. While listening to his sermon, I thought to myself, “How often have

Careful Communication

Each day presents us with new experiences and challenges. I find one of the greatest challenges I face each day is finding enough time to do the things I want to do – and need to do – whether it be at home or at work. I am sure most of you agree that some

Flying High

“Look Dad, you’re flying!” Those wonderful words spoken by my three-year-old son, Christian, while I struggled to regain my balance, inspired the theme of my speaking business: “Who needs legs, when you have wings?” Flights of fancy, I believe, are as important as real flight. Of course I will never really fly. That is impossible.

Blame Game

To regret the experience is to regret the lesson – because the lesson is inextricably contained in the experience. Too often when changes occur and our circumstances are not as we planned, we tend to focus on what we lost, what we’ve missed, what’s gone wrong, who is to blame, and “why me.” We are

Facing The Storms

A Wyoming cowboy was once asked what was the greatest lesson he’d learned from his experiences of ranching. “The Herefords taught me one of life’s most important lessons,” he replied. “We used to breed cattle for a living, but the winter storms would come and kill ’em off. It would take a terrible toll on

Soar On Your Own Wings By Receiving Change

On that day when my life changed, I had a choice. I could resist what was happening, or I could receive change into my life and move forward with it. Those two words, “resist” or “receive” make the difference in our life experience. Life happens. While we wish it wasn’t so, tragedy happens. Change is
