Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Avoiding Double Trouble. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 2, 2008.

There are some things that just seem to naturally go together. How could you have baseball without hot dogs? When you think of Ginger Rogers, you just naturally also think of Fred Astaire. And of course there is always mom and apple pie. It just seems as though the minute you think of one, you think of the other. The list of these dynamic duos goes on and on.

Greg Hickman A Winning Attitude Is Not Optional. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 30, 2008.

Whenever success is the goal (and why wouldn't it be?), a winning attitude is never an option - it is an absolute necessity.

Greg Hickman Habit Forming. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 30, 2008.

We've all got a few annoying habits that we would like to break. OK, maybe more than a few. I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about here; those troublesome habits that sap our productivity, zap our energy and cap our future potential.

Greg Hickman What's In It For Me? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 29, 2008.

It seems like everyone is tuned into their favorite radio station - WII-FM these days. Of course this abbreviation stands for What's In It For Me? Before people will commit to doing anything, they generally want to know exactly what's in it for them.

Greg Hickman Your Outlook Determines Your Outcome. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 28, 2008.

Success is something we all want. However, success is rarely achieved by merely wanting it. In order to attain the lasting success we seek, we must be willing to do more than just want it. We've got to give more. By giving a little more effort, showing a little more focus and exhibiting a little more determination and persistence in everything we do, we can reach any goal we set for ourselves.

Greg Hickman More Than Enough. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 27, 2008.

Ever have the feeling that you're in over your head; maybe even WAY OVER YOUR HEAD? I'm talking about that queasy uneasiness you feel when things start to unravel. Sometimes it feels like there is just too much going on or too much on your plate. And sometimes it seems like there is just too much to do, too much to take care of, too much of just about everything. And it doesn't take long for too much of too much to become too much to handle.

Greg Hickman Take This Job and Love It! Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 26, 2008.

How many of your friends and acquaintances truly dislike their current job? More than a handful I would wager. In fact, dislike may not be a strong enough word. Statistics conclusively point out a not so surprising fact: a vast majority of people DO NOT enjoy the work they do daily. As a matter of fact, most people detest the very thing that they do for a living.

Greg Hickman Taking Control. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 25, 2008.

Winners want control of where they are going and how they are going to get there. Better stated, they DEMAND control. They refuse to allow others any opportunity to steal their thunder or derail their dreams. These individuals move forward by consistently making the needed changes that make their lives more exciting and more rewarding.

Greg Hickman Let The Sun Shine In. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 24, 2008.

We all have bad days every so often; days when nothing seems to go right, days when everything we touch seems to go wrong. Days that sap our strength and douse our enthusiasm, days that cast a dark cloud over everything we do. But even on the darkest, gloomiest days we'll ever encounter, the sun is still shining beyond the clouds.

Greg Hickman Bigger Than Life. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 15, 2008.

If you have ever stood high atop a mountaintop, basking in the scenic surroundings only nature can provide, you have experienced one of the greatest sensations known to man. With your head in the sky and the rest of the world at your feet, you feel like you can almost reach up and touch the heavens above. As the sun begins to set and the stunning, breathtakingly beautiful panorama wraps itself all around you, one thing quickly strikes home: the world is a pretty big place.

Greg Hickman Chip Off Of The Old Block. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 1, 2008.

Some of us carry around a pretty big chip on our shoulders. For one reason or perhaps any of a number of reasons we feel like we've been wronged or shortchanged in life. Instead of getting over the negative feelings we harbor and getting on with our lives, we hold a grudge; a great big nasty grudge. And this bitterness weighs heavily on everything we say, think and do.

Greg Hickman A Quick Picker Upper. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 31, 2008.

The good old pity party. Who hasn't thrown one before? And hey, don't even try to act like you don't know what I'm talking about here. Everyone has tossed at least a few of these self-absorbed cry fests in their lifetimes. A good old 'why is the whole world is picking on me' pity party.

Greg Hickman Straight From The Heart. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 30, 2008.

How many times have you wanted to do something, I mean REALLY wanted to do something, but just didn't do it? Something that got you going, something that made you feel alive, something that stoked the fires burning within; that kind of something.

Greg Hickman Most Won't. Will You? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 23, 2008.

I'd like you to take a moment, close your eyes and imagine a day where everyone in the country stood up and did their very best for one full day. I'm not talking about some of us, not even most of us, but EACH AND EVERY ONE of us giving it all that we've got. Not for a few minutes, not even a couple of hours, but ALL day long. Can you imagine how much we could accomplish if everyone collectively got up and got after it for one full day?

Greg Hickman Personal Foul. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 22, 2008.

Whenever we talk about personal responsibility; we are talking about two big-time, power-packed, heavy weight words. Words that carry a powerful wallop, words that tell the world what youre all about. But they're much more than just words. A whole lot more. They represent an attitude, a mind-set, a 'buck stops here' way of thinking that separates the players from the pretenders.

Greg Hickman You Must Be Present To Win. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 21, 2008.

Winning isn't an every once in a while thing. It's is an unbeatable, unbreakable, unshakable every-day-of the-year commitment to excellence that courses through our veins; that lives in our hearts and our souls. It's a positive-charged attitude that cannot be throttled, a resolute determination that cannot be denied. Winning is an indefatigable force that cannot be broken, a determined courage that knows not defeat.

Greg Hickman Join The Club. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 20, 2008.

We all make mistakes. In fact, we make lots of them. Our lives are literally littered with an endless array of bad moves, faulty decisions and stupid choices. Try as we might, the mistakes just keep on coming, one right after the other. And while we want to do better; we want to stop making all of the mistakes we make, we keep making them.

If you have ever felt like a mistake making machine, where messing up seems to be the name of the game, there's no need to feel alone. We've all been there. So join the club.

Greg Hickman Have It Your Way. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 12, 2008.

There's little doubt that many folks utilize a 'follow-the-herd' mentality. These people tend to go wherever the crowd goes and do whatever the crowd does. If the herd goes here, they're quick to follow. If the herd goes there, away they go with them. These follow the lead types constantly play it safe, rarely if ever venturing away from the pack.

Greg Hickman Finding The Silver Lining. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 10, 2008.

We all go through tough times now and again. And that 'going through' part is rarely enjoyable. After all, there's not much to like about treading through lifes most difficult, heart wrenching moments. Yet, no matter how rough things get, there's always something good that can be gleaned from the toughest of tough times.

Greg Hickman In Hot Pursuit. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 7, 2008.

There's a pretty big difference between knowing what you want and actually getting out there and getting it. While most people can readily picture those things they yearn to accomplish, many fall miserably short when it comes to making those things happen. For one reason or another, or really no good reason at all, they can never muster the focus, willpower and mental tenacity needed to make their dreams come true.
