Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman An Inspiration Sensation. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 20, 2010.

Sometimes the fire that burns within loses its brightness, its intensity, its fullness. And when it does, your life become a little cloudier, a little less defined. As you get beaten down by the pressures you face and the setbacks and disappointments you encounter, the clouds begin to creep in. And your days lose some of their passion and luster.

Greg Hickman It's A Start. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 19, 2010.

You'd love to try it, to get out there and see what you can accomplish.

You'd like to chance it, to buck the odds and really go for it with everything you've got.

You'd love to throw caution to the wind and go get the things you really want to have, see and be; to give life your very best shot.

But you dont.

Greg Hickman Scarcity Smarcity. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 18, 2010.

Far too many people wander through life clinging to a scarcity mindset; a limitation dominated frame of mind where they only see limited opportunity, where they believe that there's only so much to go around - and that's it. Rather than seeing that there's way more than enough for everyone to enjoy, they see lack. Instead of seeing surplus, they see shortage. Instead of seeing opportunity, they see limitations.

After awhile, all they see is scarcity  and it scares them to death.

Greg Hickman Better Watch Your Head. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 17, 2010.

Noted motivational speaker Zig Ziglar has said we all need an occasional check up from the neck up to avoid what he calls stinkin' thinkin.' I couldn't agree more. With so much go on almost all of the time in our lives, it's easy to catch a big time case of the stinkin' thinkin' blues.

Greg Hickman Go Get It. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 16, 2010.

Dreams are the lifeblood of living. We picture them in our minds. We hold them in our hearts. We carry them with us each and every day of our lives.

Greg Hickman Living Tremendously. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 15, 2010.

We all yearn to live tremendous lives; the lives we have dreamed about, lives where our fondest wishes come true. Its only natural to want the best life has to offer. Yet, if asked to choose a word that best describes the lives we are presently living, odds are pretty good that 'tremendous' would not top the list. In fact, it probably wouldn't make the list at all.

Greg Hickman Foot Notes. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 14, 2010.

Mark Twain once said, "The secret of getting ahead is getting started." In his ever present dry wit manner, Old Mark was merely pointing out the obvious - if we don't get started, we won't get moving. And if we don't get moving, our chances of hitting it big hover somewhere between slim and none.

With none holding a sizable lead.

Greg Hickman Name It - Them Claim It. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 13, 2010.

What do you want out of life? What are your dreams and aspirations? What do you want to achieve in your time on earth? Where do you want to go? What do you wish to accomplish?

Greg Hickman Crossing The Line. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 12, 2010.

All of us have limits. And these limits literally run the gamut. There are limits on how far we can go, limits on how high we can climb. Limits on how much what we can do, limits on what we're capable of accomplishing. As a matter of fact, we have limits on just about every facet of our lives. And while our limitations may vary widely from person to person, there's one thing these limitations all have in common.

They keep us from living our dreams.

Greg Hickman Getting The Picture. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 11, 2010.

It's easy to picture the life we desire; real easy as a matter of fact. Deep in our hearts and souls, there is a warehouse stocked with an endless assortment of dazzling dreams and aspirations. Amazing things we want to try. Exciting places we want to visit. All sorts of wonderful life experiences we yearn to see, feel and touch for ourselves.

Greg Hickman Rejection Slip. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 10, 2010.

We all know the pain of rejection. We've felt the sorrow, the sadness, the bitter sting of rejection; some of us more than others. And it's never a good feeling. When people reject what we say, think or do, regardless of whether it's personal or business in nature, it hurts. Flat out hurts as a matter of fact.

Greg Hickman What Matters Most. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 8, 2010.

There are things that really matter in life; things that mean more to us than anything else on earth. Our family, faith and friends would certainly top the list, along with our principles and core beliefs. These very special things, these very special people are our most priceless possessions. And we hold them very close to our hearts.

They are truly what matters most in life.

Greg Hickman Give It Away. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 7, 2010.

There's a tendency to hold on to the special things in our lives. And hold on tightly. Maybe we're afraid of losing what we have. Or perhaps we're worried about replacing what is lost. For those reasons or a thousand more, we hold on to what we have.

And refuse to let go.

Greg Hickman Stay Tuned. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 6, 2010.

Staying on top of our game isn't always easy. In fact, sometimes it's downright difficult. With life buzzing by at breakneck speed, we constantly get pulled in one direction and then tugged in another. When you toss in the fact that many of us work at jobs we don't like, doing things we don't like to do, it's a small wonder we're able to maintain any focus whatsoever.

Greg Hickman All In. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 5, 2010.

Ever wished you would have done something, but didn't? Maybe it was something you wanted to try. Or perhaps something you wanted to pursue. Well don't feel alone. Regardless of how much each of us has accomplished in our lifetimes, we all have a closet full of 'wish we would haves.' Things we wished we would have taken a stab at. Things we should have given a go.

But didn't.

Greg Hickman Who Ate My Free Lunch? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 4, 2010.

If there is one thing just about everybody loves, it's getting something for free. Something they didn't have to work for, something they didn't have to pay for, something that's just given to them. There is just nothing like getting a freebie.

At least that's what some people think.

Greg Hickman Or Else. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 3, 2010.

I wish I was somewhere else, doing something else. Anything other than what I'm doing right now. Anywhere but where I'm at right now. Why can't I be somebody else, someplace else, doing something else? Getting something other than what I'm getting right now?

Greg Hickman You'd Better Be Right. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 1, 2010.

There are times when life can look pretty bleak. And there are moments when life looks even bleaker than that. And let's be honest, nobody likes bleak. Bleak is yucky. Bleak is gloomy. Bleak is drab, dreary and downright depressing.

Greg Hickman Get With It. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 20, 2010.

We see others who have IT. They've got it going. They've got it working. They seem to have it all together. And we wish we had it too.

Greg Hickman In The Bag. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 19, 2010.

Life is what we make of it. It's in our hands. We can make it one heck of an adventure ride, where each day offers a brand new level of excitement and opportunity. Or we can make it pure drudgery, where we struggle to barely scrape by.
