Traveling has always been something I look forward too when it is for fun or adventure!  It is amazing to think we can travel the world so quickly. Just hop on a plane and in  a few hours you can be thousands of miles from where you started.  It makes the world feel so much smaller than it actually is…. We woke up in the morning overlooking one of the most beautiful views on the planet on St. Johns island in the US Virgin island chain and in just over five hours of flight we are back home to north central Texas by the end of the day.  As I have gotten older I have not taken this for granted it still amazes me that you can fly at over 500 mph with a few hundred people and a bunch of luggage to almost anywhere in the world you want in one day. 

Its seems like no matter where we go...

There is a famous quote that says 

 “ All successful people have agreed in being Causationists. They believe that they are the CAUSE for what happens to them. Unsuccessful men believe they are the EFFECT of what others have done to them or have not done for them.” 

Henry David Thoreau   

 I am pretty sure that everyone at one time or another has said why me? or how in the world did this happen? or why is the world picking on me?  Its normal thought process and honestly, I totally understand it… However, the key is not dwelling on it or hanging out there long. Everyone has a different process to work thru difficult situations, but it should never be extended more than a few days!  If you allow it to stick in your mind it will create a path of memory and you will dwell on the failure, tragedy or c...

My head is spinning right now with all the things I want to say…. All we have is our health and if you don’t believe it’s true just wait until you get sick!!  At that point, when you are basically helpless and can only think about getting well,  it might be too late or very difficult to recover fully!  Now in my mid-fifties I understand this more than ever.  I believe with everything in my heart and mind that this is the most important thing I can do on a daily basis!  If I plan to be a healthy and vibrant well into my 80’s or 90’s I have to be very focused on this now!  I have been surrounded recently with people friends, family and people I know struggling with major disease processes and the pain both physically and financially that goes along.   My goal is not to give you a solution today as m...

I recently said this to a millennial and they asked me what it meant?  So, I explained that squeezing the lemon meant getting every last drop out of the day!   Every day that goes by I am reminded life is short.  There are many people that I grew up with, enjoyed watching or listening too that are now gone.  Reminding me that we have but one life to live.  The things that will remain are the people you impact positively that live on!  It is your true legacy.

  • Look for reasons to love and not hate. 

  • Look for reasons to give not take. 

  • Look for reasons to share Christs love not rules and religion. 

  • Look for reasons to help not hurt.

  • Look for reasons to have patience not anger. 

  • Look for reasons to train and teach, don’t be silent and say let t...

This is an interesting thought process.  I have often thought of this as something similar to what is your quitting point, but it is completely different.  You may not quit doing something you just slow down the process with excuses!   Here is what I am talking about in a real life example.  My son who is a retired Navy Seal gave me a great lesson and dose of reality last night or actually early this morning.   Before you say it… he is a Navy SEAL and they are different or special or better, etc.  Remember what we are talking about there is always and excuse!! 

He started a new blog that you can access by simply going to his Instagram account @garrettunclebach  and ready his journey laced with great lessons learned as a SEAL.  Anyway, here is the lesson.  He...

The quote you see in the caption is from Tommy Tenney and its a great quote. If there is one thing I have learned over the last 5 decade’s it is way better to apologize quickly and forgive wrongs swiftly then to carry around anger and bitterness.   What I have said literally hundreds of times “Who wants to be judged on their worst day?”  I know that I don’t want to be judged on some of my worst days and so glad I was given grace by my friends and family.   Here is what I know if you carry around unforgiveness and remain bitter over an offense it’s like drinking poison and hoping it kills the other person!!   There is a ton of medical data regarding what this does to you physically which is a supernatural correlation to your body.  Literally unforgiveness will take you to the grave early!  The bibl...

How do we pack it all in every day?   Get up take some time for self improvement, spend some time with God in the word and prayer, get in a quick workout,  head to work or your first meeting,  answer text, emails, check in on social media because the world might end if you don’t!  Get the kids to school, change the oil in the car,  purchase gifts for the next party,  shop for groceries, pick kids up and get them to practice,  head to church, check social media again Instagram needs to see your latest pic!!  I could go on and on and each of you could add a dozen activities to the list.   LIFE IS FAST and does not appear to be slowing down.  It is extremely important to make sure we focus every day on what is really life changing, what lines up with your core values.  Your spouse, your children, you...

Learning to be thankful in all things is very difficult at times.  As you get some years under your belt and some life situations you learn to see things through the lens of thankfulness!  You begin to see that God really does have you in his hand and has your best future in mind.  He can see the end from the beginning and we usually cannot.    There are times when it is easy to be thankful.  Those moments when you are overwhelmed by the love and generosity of others.  It can come during times to celebrate and comes in time of tragedy.    Yesterday it came to me during a time to celebrate and I was honestly overwhelmed with the love and gratitude extended toward me from people I know well and people I know through business or church.   The out pouring was beyond anything I deserve or could have po...

This great quote sent me down the road thinking about the tests in my own life and how they effected me negatively and more importantly positively.

You will never advance in any area that you have not been tested in. – Keith A. Craft .  leadershipology.com 

Nobody likes the part of being tested, but it is so true! Testing creates strength, stamina, patience, wisdom, understanding and learning the value of success! Stay in the game... Finish your test and come out the other side elevated to your next level!

Recently love has been the top topic in my world.  I have told my adult children that in my life time I have never seen anything like the negativity and hate I see in the world.   It’s obvious that the internet and smart phones have totally changed our world and how we communicate.   However, why does that appear to turn on the “hate” or “lets attack” mode for people? I really don’t get why people want to be known for negativity or being a hater. They do it under the modern thought of I am just giving my opinion.     I have always witnessed in my life that sugar attracts people not salt. Add to that the spiritual things I have learned over time from the bible about grace, mercy and loving others and I understand why kind words, sympathetic eyes, a nice greeting go a long way to...
