Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Moving Day. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 26, 2006.

Moving can be a real bummer. After all, hoisting boxes, lifting furniture and hauling around what seems like an endless hodgepodge of clothes, papers and other assorted stuff you haven’t seen in years is no walk in the park. Not only do you have to move every bit of it out of your old place, you have to move it into your new home as well.

Greg Hickman Anchors Away. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 13, 2006.

Do you ever feel like you’re tied down, seemingly stuck in the same place day after lackluster day? If you are like most of us, you have experienced that ‘tied down’ feeling every now and then; maybe even more often than you care to admit.

Greg Hickman Response Ability. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 8, 2006.

How do you deal with pressure? Now I’m not talking about the nervousness you feel when thinking about the exam you are going to take later this week or fretting about whether or not your car is going to start in the morning. Nor am I talking about the anxiety you feel over getting that raise at work or landing that new position you really desire. Sure, these situations have some stress and strain related to them, no doubt about it. But they’re not the real deal when it comes to full-strength pressure.

Greg Hickman Destiny Calls. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 3, 2006.

While life offers each of us dozens of opportunities to reach up and make the most of our precious moments on earth, many of us tend to just go through the motions day after day. Instead of seizing the day by seizing control of the moment at hand, we far too often allow the boundless potential and promise of each day to slowly but surely slip away... and fade out of sight.

Greg Hickman Above and Beyond. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: August 23, 2006.

How do you instinctively respond when the going starts getting more than a little tough? Do you intuitively rise up to meet the challenge or do you instead bend or even break under the pressure? Do you automatically summon forth the extra effort required to go above and beyond the call of duty or do you toss in the towel and call it quits? The way you naturally respond to life’s difficulties speaks volumes about your character — or lack thereof.

Greg Hickman Be A Victor, Not A Victim. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 30, 2006.

The longer I live, the more I am amazed over the simplicity of life. Now I am not suggesting that life is always simple; far from it. In fact, life can become downright complicated if allowed to do so. But the recipe for a fulfilling and rewarding lifetime IS relatively simple. Living a fantastic life filled with good times and even better memories has a great deal to do with the space between our ears and very little to do with outside factors, fate or circumstance.

Greg Hickman Removing All Doubt. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 21, 2006.

Doesn’t it sometimes feel like doubt looms at every corner — seemingly everywhere you look, everywhere you turn? Even the most confident person on earth can occasionally get a case of the nervous heebie-jeebies.

Greg Hickman Reshuffling the Deck. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 14, 2006.

How many times have we seen someone we know, maybe a friend, relative or co-worker, toss in the towel the moment things got a little tough, a little rough? Rather than stick it out and push themselves — a little harder, a little farther — they seem perfectly content throwing their hands up in the air and giving up.

Greg Hickman Off Again, On Again. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: May 6, 2006.

In today’s blowing and going society, where we constantly push ourselves to the breaking point and beyond, we sometimes find ourselves feeling a bit ‘off’ of our game. On these off days, our motivation seems a little out of kilter, our drive a little out of sync. We wonder, what in the world is wrong with us?

Greg Hickman Get With The Program. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: March 22, 2006.

Have you ever wondered what in the world happened to the good ole “get up and go” in so many of those around us nowadays? Is it just me or does it seems like a good bit of the get up and go has got up and gone? Rather than putting forth the very best effort they can, way too many folks have opted to take the easy way out of just about everything they do — or better stated, ‘don’t do.’

Greg Hickman Seconds Anyone? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 22, 2006.

If you’ve ever witnessed the final few moments of a championship game, where one team is comfortably ahead with only seconds left in the contest, you’ve no doubt seen the players on the sidelines start savoring the joy of the moment as the last few ticks on the clock wind down to zero. Be it high school, college or the professional ranks, a number of the winning team members can be seen celebrating the cherished victory by holding up their index finger and shouting ‘we’re number one.’

Greg Hickman A Glimmer of Hope. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 13, 2006.

Hope is like a single, radiant ray of sunshine that breaks through from the heavens on a dreary, rainy, overcast day. And hope is like the breath-taking, almost too beautiful for words rainbow that graces the heavens after the clouds have drifted away.

Greg Hickman Brush With Greatness. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 12, 2006.

Many of us rarely associate the term ‘great’ with our day to day activities. Oh sure, we may stumble upon an exceptional day every now and again, but having one super sensational day after another is little more than a pipedream to the vast majority of people. Unfortunately, way too many of us have resigned ourselves into believing that greatness is something someone else gets to experience, embrace and enjoy.

Greg Hickman Proof Positive. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 24, 2006.

All of us have felt the need to prove ourselves to others on occasion. In fact, you could probably call it an almost uncontrollable urge; seeking to make others sit up and take notice at that very moment. Hey, it’s only human nature to want to know that those around us value and appreciate our abilities and contributions; that they respect us for who we are and what we bring to the table.

Greg Hickman Image Conscience. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 20, 2006.

In order to live life to its fullest, it’s vitally important to nurture a healthy self image. Not a holier-than-thou or full of yourself self centered attitude, but a wholesome feel good about yourself and your God given abilities outlook on life.

Greg Hickman Picking Up The Pieces. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 28, 2005.

Life can be a topsy-turvy adventure ride on occasion. After all, it can be filled with all of the fun and excitement you could ever hope to handle one minute and then suddenly bring you crashing back to the ground only a few seconds later.

Greg Hickman Easy Doesn't Always Do It. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 21, 2005.

Easy does it. How many times have we heard this familiar catchphrase? A ton of times; but what exactly does this silly cliché mean? Easy does what? For an old adage that’s sure got a lot of miles on it, it doesn’t seem to pack much of a punch.

Greg Hickman Larger Than Life. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 15, 2005.

Life can feel so frustrating on occasion. There are those times when you want to do better, in fact, you desperately NEED to do better, yet better feels like it’s light years away. Regardless of how hard you work and how hard you try, the finish line remains ever elusive — just out of reach, just beyond your grasp.

Greg Hickman More Than You Bargained For. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 30, 2005.

How many times have you uttered the well-worn words, “I’m doing the best I can?” In all likelihood, you have repeated this expression on more than a handful of occasions; probably more times than you even realize. In fact, I would wager that you have casually tossed that predictable phrase around like a Frisbee in the park on a Sunday afternoon.

Greg Hickman Spur of the Moment Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 26, 2005.

If life is anything, it’s an emotional roller coaster ride. One minute you’re feeling as high as a kite soaring far above the ground, with everything going your way. It almost seems like life is almost too good to be true, just about as picture perfect as it can possibly be. And then, a few moments later… boom, down you go in a split second — feeling about as low as you can go. Up one moment, down the next — life’s ever changing moments keeps us all on our toes.
