Loving The Imperfections

  As I laid on my hotel bed late one night after a full day of meetings at the National Speakers Association Convention, I was scrolling through Instagram.  I came across a post that caught my attention.  It was that of a dear sweet family member.  The post was a picture with a quote on

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

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Memorial Day to me isn’t about war or all the feelings that go along with it. It’s about individuals who chose to serve in the United States Military, they chose to possibly make the ultimate sacrifice. Chances are there is a veterans’ cemetery where you live, or several of them. You’ll find many soldiers buried

Positive Thinking- Positive Results

Positive Thinking- Positive Results People who embrace positive thinking are capable of accomplishing tasks that seem impossible because they believe in solutions.  When you believe you can do something difficult – and you succeed – many doors open for you.

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

Have you ever felt alone? No where to turn for an answer? No hope? No future? Trapped, unable to move forward in your life? I found this photo this morning as I was making final preparations in my hotel room to speak to an organization this afternoon in Arizona. I remember those feelings. In fact,

One More Day

The other day, I saw a commercial on television about children wanting “one more day” of vacation. It was a commercial advertising the benefits of having a particular credit card, but its message from the children was what really struck me: that many of us have yearly paid vacations, and, yet for whatever reason, we,

Building A Solid Foundation

Wouldn’t it be great to find the perfect person to spend the rest of your life with? Marrying the right person the first time would certainly eliminate the increase in the divorce rate in this country, which continues to climb. Keeping a marriage together these days takes a lot of hard work. It takes a

A Change In You

It is family day. The six of us pack up and head for the fairgrounds. The State Fair attracts folks from all around, including many local homeless – and those passing for homeless – looking for a handout. They stake out strategic locations at the entrance and exit of the fairgrounds. From there, they catch

Silence is golden

One of the most significant attributes we, as human beings have is the ability to communicate through speech; some of us can even communicate through our very thoughts. I believe we all know full well the value of taking a moment to think before we speak. As some of you might know, I was recently
