10 Keys to Lifelong Happiness

I recently came across a terrific blog post claiming “The 15 Things To Give Up To Be Happy.”  Although I agreed with most of them, some of them I didn’t.  I don’t believe that those same 15 things will work for everyone.  Nor do I believe that the 10 that I will share with you

Choose Your Leaders Wisely

I have been blessed in my life. From the time I was very young till now, I have been taught the value of working hard. We had a huge garden when I was growing up that required a lot of weeding and we had “chores” every day. When I turned 16, I had a job

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

Finding Your Center

  Each day of my rehabilitation, I gained confidence and ability. Having lost all strength in my stomach muscles, I found it nearly impossible to maintain my balance if I leaned to one side or the other. Sitting on a mat with my legs straight in front of me, I would attempt to raise my

  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

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

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

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

One Step At A Time

Fourteen years ago a one ton bale of hay rested on top of my head and neck, causing my breathing to became labored, and I wondered how long I could stay conscious. Twice a painful tingle crossed over my face, and I feared suffocation. I was rapidly losing the ability to take in oxygen. Twice
