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

Living Life With A Purpose

Living Life with Purpose If we are going to succeed in life, we must realize and acknowledge our hopes and dreams. These will then motivate our actions.  A gifted author, Mary Anne Radmacher, wrote a poem which has helped inspire my life. “Life Begins When You Do” Walk to the edge Listen hard – Laugh

From Then To Today

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,

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

One More Day

The other day, I saw a commercial on television about children wanting “one more day” of vacation.

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
