Greg Hickman Don't Go There. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 2, 2011.

If you're like a lot of folks, your life is overrun with don'ts.

Greg Hickman Destination: Success. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 22, 2010.

Some people aimlessly drift in no particular direction. Like a ship without a rudder, they just go wherever the tide pulls them.

Greg Hickman Here You Go Again. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: december 21, 2010.

You have just pulled through a pretty rough stretch. Maybe you endured a financial hardship. Perhaps you battled an illness. Maybe you had to deal with a variety of personal issues. Or perhaps the thousand other difficulties life serves up.

Greg Hickman Another Day, Another Dollar. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 15, 2010.

You get up. You go to work. Clock in, put in a day's work, and then clock out. You come home. Eat dinner. Maybe catch a little TV. Then conk out. And start it all over tomorrow.

The routine is nothing all that special, nothing all that great. It's just what you do. The same old grind, the same old stuff; just another day, another dollar.

Greg Hickman Breaking The Rules. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 14, 2010.

Play by the rules.
Don't rock the boat.
Never upset the apple cart.
Play it close to the vest.

These are the play it safe, don't take a lot of chances rules many people live by. These rules prevent them from taking a lot of chances. They help them minimize their risks. They keep them safe and secure. Or do they?

Greg Hickman Get 'Er Done. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 12, 2010.

The world is a results oriented place. There are no brownie points for effort or second place finishes. Or for getting close or almost making it happen. Results are the only thing people care about.

Greg Hickman Whatcha Got? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 10, 2010.

It's one of those days. Nothing seems to be working. Nothing is going right. Try as you might, nothing is going your way. You can't catch a break. You can't get things moving. You can't even get out of your own way. You just can't.

Greg Hickman A Winning Combination. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 5, 2010.

Are you getting where you want to go? Doing the things you want to do? Achieving the level of success you seek?

Do you feel like a winner? Do you view your life as a portrait of triumph and achievement? Do you see yourself as a player, a doer, an achiever; as a mover and a shaker?

Or have defeat, despair and disappointment become your calling card?

Greg Hickman Agony of Defeat. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 31, 2010.

Do you recall the television sports series called ABCs Wide World of Sports? If you do, you undoubtedly recall the start of the show. With a rolling montage of sports clips and a stirring, brassy musical composition acting as a backdrop, sports journalist Jim McKays would say:

"Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sport; the thrill of victory... and the agony of defeat."

Greg Hickman Now Hiring. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 30, 2010.

You see the following ad in the paper:

We are now hiring.

Position requires an energetic, outgoing, results oriented self starter. The applicant must be eager to learn and get better. Must possess a no excuses approach - and be willing to accept total responsibility for his or her decisions/actions. This individual must be attentive, confident and exhibit an optimistic outlook at all times. A great attitude is a plus. The ability to add value and develop rapport with the customer is a big plus. A tremendous work ethic is an absolute must. If you've got what it takes, give us a call and let's get started. Whiners, complainers and excuse makers need not apply.

Greg Hickman Watts Happening? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 24, 2010.

Do you love where you are? What you're doing? Where you're going? Is your life filled with excitement, with energy, with eager anticipation? Are you cranked up, keyed up and revved up about where life is taking you?

Greg Hickman Large and In Charge. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 23, 2010.

There's a choice on the table. A move needs to be made. And you're the one who needs to make it. So what do you do? Do you take the chance? Make the choice? Make a move? Or do you defer? Maybe even run away?

Greg Hickman Baggage Check. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 21, 2010.

Life can get weighty at times. On any given day, at any given moment, you've got problems. You've got pressures. You've got all sorts of stuff that gets you down, unpleasant things you wish you didn't have to deal with. Things you need to handle; things that drive you crazy; one heavy load after another.

Greg Hickman Can't Miss Proposition. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 20, 2010.

The ball is in your hands. The clock winding down. Your team trails by a single point. The game hangs in the balance. As the final few seconds tick away, with victory or defeat placed squarely on your shoulders, you have to make a decision. Do you take the shot?

Or do you pass the ball to a teammate and hope for the best?

Greg Hickman Playing With Fire. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 19, 2010.

You know what you love to do.

It's that special something you were born to do; something you love so much that you'd gladly do it for free. It makes you happy. It sets you free. When you're doing it, you're at peace. And nothing else matters all that much. It's where you want to be, where you NEED to be. Yet many times this special something is sadly relegated to the sideline.

Greg Hickman Open Wide. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 17, 2010.

Nobody likes to get hurt. It doesn't matter whether the pain is emotional or physical in nature; you want the hurting to stop - and to stop as quickly as possible. So there's a tendency to move away from things that cause discomfort and pain. And move away as quickly as possible.

But sometimes you move too far.

Greg Hickman Toxic Waste. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 15, 2010.

You're smack dab in the middle of one of 'those' days. It's a day where things aren't going all that great, a day where problems are mounting up. It's a day where just about everything is going wrong... along with your mood.

Greg Hickman Here's An Idea. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 24, 2010.

It's just another day, like a thousand days before. You're going about your daily routine, doing the same old stuff you normally do; nothing really out of the ordinary. Then, in an instant, everything changes.

Out of nowhere, an idea thunders into your life.

Greg Hickman Getting Up... Even When You Can't. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 22, 2010.

You've been knocked down. You're flat on your back. And you're staring straight up at a room full of problems. You feel lousy, lost and out of sorts. You're out of options, at the end of your rope. And it seems like your day is getting worse by the minute.

Welcome to the big leagues baby.

Greg Hickman Not Now. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 20, 2010.

It's been one of those days - all day long. A day where nothing seems to click; where nothing seems to work, where nothing is going your way. A day where things started out badly - and have been going downhill ever since.
