Stop thinking about what everyone else is thinking about you. If the opinion of others hinders you from moving forward in the pursuit of your dreams or the betterment of your life then you have become a prisoner to the thoughts of others. It’s those who are willing to break […]

Break The Mold

The marketing business is booming. Millions upon millions of dollars are spent on marketing each year. Everywhere you look there are advertisements trying to get you to buy something, try something, or do something with your hard earned money. The goal of the marketers is to try to get you […]

Know Your Worth: No Settling Here

Broken Heart
“I feel so disrespected.” With tears streaming down her cheeks, these were the words that came from the mouth of one of my serving crew at work last night. I sat, I listened, & I empathized as she shared how she felt about the way she had been treated. My heart […]

I Feel So Disrespected

When something goes wrong, what are the first thoughts that flash through your mind? I used to hate it when people would say, “No crying over spilled milk.” It just seems over simplistic. It doesn’t take feelings into consideration. I mean, when you go to pour yourself a cold cup […]

Spilled Milk

Bat & Ball
What is the narrative constantly playing in your head? Is it a narrative of possibility, hope, and defying the odds? Or is it one of defeat, fear, and anticipation of failure? We often stop ourselves from ever pursuing our dreams, taking the promotion, or trying something new because of the […]

Yes, Yes, Yes: A Winner’s Narrative

Settling is the easy ways of saying, “I don’t believe I’m worth it,” and “I don’t believe I can do it.” When my wife and I were drowning in consumer debt I was constantly hit with the question, “Why?” “Why are you settling for average? Why are you setting to […]

Ever think about how you are often your greatest critic? It’s time to be your greatest fan. Build yourself up. Think & speak positively of yourself. You are worth it. My team & I were on a retreat from work and I got the awesome opportunity to learn how to […]

Your Greatest Critic or Biggest Fan, Which Are You?

SP Retreat
This past weekend rocked me in such a necessary way. There is nothing quite like God blowing the roof off your expectations. Everyone of us needs a good blasting by his love in such a way that our spiritual lid is lifted beyond anything we have ever experienced. When we […]

We Are Family. We Are One. We Are The Church.

Memorial Day
Yesterday, Monday, May 27, 2014, “Memorial Day,” was such a beautiful day for me. My wife, my teenage boy, and our two precious puppies went to my brother’s house and had a blast. We had a bbq, I made some bomb quacamole, and we swam the day away in his […]

We Choose To Remember: Memorial Day

record of wrongs
“Do you keep a record of wrongs or rights?” Yesterday I had a great time eating lunch with one of my good friends Robin Viray and we were sharing about how easy it is to become offended by someone. Offense is so common in relationships. And, no relationship is exempt […]

Do You Keep A Record of Wrongs or Rights?

Do you have the heart? I love games that come down to heart. You know the games I’m talking about right? Where both teams are equally tired, both have given it their all and both are battling relentlessly to the very end. I especially love watching an underdog arise from […]

Do You Have The Heart?

Husbands, have you ever felt emotionally tapped? I’m talking about being in a place where you know your wife needs your affection, emotional support, or words of loving affirmation, but you feel like you have nothing. This happened to me the other day. It’s not always fun. My wife was struggling […]
