Greg Hickman Competition Closed. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 11, 2008.

Greg Hickman Now Power. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 10, 2008.

Greg Hickman Avoiding A Bad Air Day. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 4, 2008.

How many times have we said something we wished we wouldn't have said? Whether in a moment of anger or exasperation, we let something slip out and immediately wished we could take it back. The moment the ill-fated words left our lips, we knew we shouldn't have said them. But it was said nonetheless and now it's out there - and out there forever.

Greg Hickman Against All Odds. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 3, 2008.

In our darkest, deepest moments of fear and self doubt, we oftentimes feel lost, abandoned and all alone. Overrun by feelings of apprehension, overwhelmed by unsettling moments of insecurity, we become anxious and unsure. With the odds stacked against us, we don't know where to turn - or what to do.

Greg Hickman Down and Out. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 29, 2008.

It's easy to get a little down every now and then. There is not a person on earth who hasn't found themselves down in the dumps on occasion. Not one. Regardless of how highly motivated or optimistic any of us are, we're still going to experience some down moments in our lives. That's just the way it goes. But then again, so what? Getting down is one thing, staying down something else altogether.

Greg Hickman Batteries Not Included. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 28, 2008.

It sometimes feels like the whole world is suffering from some sort of energy crisis. I'm not talking about the type of energy required to fuel your car or heat and cool your home. No, not at all. What I'm referring to is the general absence of fire power in people all around us.

Greg Hickman Help Yourself. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 27, 2008.

There's nothing like a caring, sharing helping hand to lift us up when our spirits are down. Sometimes that helping hand comes from another person who cares enough to help us get back on our feet. Their steady hand pulls us out of the doldrums, pats us on the back and makes us feel better about ourselves.

Greg Hickman If You Don't - You Won't. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 27, 2007.

Make a decision - sometimes just the mere mention of these words send a chilling jolt down the spines of some people. Granted, there are some individuals who regularly make life defining choices daily; seemingly with the greatest of ease. However, many more have a great deal of difficulty making important decisions when they need to be made. Then, of course, there are others who have a hard time just deciding what shirt to put on in the morning.

Greg Hickman Getting The Inside Scoop. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 26, 2007.

Life can feel like one crazy, complicated puzzle on occasion. In fact, at times it seems like we face a never ceasing procession of challenges and questions that require our response. Sometimes we have the answers, sometimes we don't. And in those trying moments when a rapid response isn't readily available, it can leave us feeling baffled, bewildered and battered.

Greg Hickman Oops. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 24, 2007.

Blunders, bloopers, goofs and gaffes, there's a whole hodgepodge of names for the mistakes we make in life. Regardless of what we call them, they're never a whole lot of fun. Let's face it, nobody likes making mistakes. And while messing things up will never be confused with one of our favorite pastimes, we still mess things up occasionally. Sometimes we mess things up a lot.

Greg Hickman Stronger Than The Moment. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 23, 2007.

There are many moments in life that test our mettle, our strength, our grit. Defining moments that challenge our tenacity, demanding moments that finely measure our resolve. And in these tough, trying, taxing times, what we're made of is put to the ultimate test. Sometimes we are stronger than the moment, on other occasions we aren't.

Greg Hickman Absolutely! Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 22, 2007.

Absolutely, positively, no doubt about it; is this the type of high-octane attitude you bring to the table each and every day? Do you consistently radiate a confident, optimistic positive charged air; a get it done no matter what approach to living that simply cannot be stopped or slowed down?

Greg Hickman Eating Fear For Breakfast. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 21, 2007.

FEAR - a double dreaded four letter word to be sure. Is there any other word in any language that packs as much power, strikes as much terror and causes as much heartbreak and suffering as the word fear? Just the sound of the word can bring even the strongest amongst right down to our knees. And the feeling fear creates within us is a hundred times worse.

Greg Hickman On A Clear Day, You Can See Forever. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 20, 2007.

Have you have ever stood on the ridge of a mountain or hilltop on a crisp, clear fall afternoon and lazily gazed off into the horizon? If so, you have tasted one of life's most awe-inspiring moments. With no obstructions or obstacles to hinder your field of vision, you could literally see forever in all directions. Or at least it seemed that way.

Greg Hickman Rolling With The Punches. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 16, 2007.

Life can sometimes feel like a rousing roller coaster ride; a wild and wacky, action packed adventure that constantly tugs at our emotions. One minute we're high as a kite, then not quite as high the next. Up, down and all around, our emotions bounce all over the place throughout the day.

Greg Hickman Extra Leg Room. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 15, 2007.

Each of us has experienced that suffocating sensation of feeling completely boxed-in, where it feels as though the walls are closing in all around us. In these queasy, uneasy, doom and gloom moments of despair and desperation, all we want to do is escape and get our lives back on track.

Greg Hickman Honor Roll. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 8, 2007.

In today's seemingly ever-present personal pursuit of power and prestige, sometimes honor and integrity appear to be the last things on people's minds. Don't get me wrong; there's still a sizable portion of the population that fervently believes in these fundamental principles. Thank goodness for that. But there are still far too many amongst us who have abandoned these beliefs in their selfish search for fame and fortune. And nothing could be more tragic.

Greg Hickman Going With Your Gut. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 7, 2007.

Have you ever experienced one of those gut feelings, a burning sensation deep within that instinctively told you to doing something perhaps a little out of character, something a little out of the ordinary? But for one reason or another you didn't - and later wished you had? I'm sure you have; we all have at one time or another.

Greg Hickman Untangling A Stress Mess. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 20, 2007.

Too much going on, too many balls in the air, too little time to get it all done; does any of this sound vaguely familiar? More likely than not, you have probably found yourself stuck smack dab in a stress mess on occasion. There a few feelings more unsettling than finding yourself up to your eyeballs in stress; nerve-racking gut wrenching stress. You want things to slow down, you need things to cool off; but the stress keeps coming at you faster and faster - whirling all around you like a suffocating tornado.

Greg Hickman The Cavalry Isn't Coming. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 19, 2007.

No one likes the feeling of being afraid; those panicky, anxious, unsettling emotions we experience each time we feel frightened or scared. Unfortunately, there are all sorts of problems that can instill these feelings of apprehension within us. Worries, illnesses, financial concerns, family woes and unexpected problems can strike when we least expect them, negatively reverberating deep down in our hearts and souls.
