Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman A World of Possibilities. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 10, 2004.

When it comes to making their dreams come true, there are basically two approaches people utilize as they weave their way through life. One way is to believe that virtually anything and everything they have set their hearts on having or doing is out of their reach or beyond their control. Rather than seizing the day and the infinite array of possibilities they are presented daily, they resign themselves to the harsh reality that the good life is just not in the cards. With an unrelenting string of impossibilities sadly ruling their days, they lead a life filled with scarcity and doing without.

Greg Hickman Reservations Never Required. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 4, 2004.

Can there be a better feeling on earth than when one is blissfully lost in the passionate pursuit of his or her dreams, living an almost fairy tale life literally overflowing with happiness and good cheer? If you have ever been there, with the wind at your back and seemingly on an unstoppable roll, you know how great it feels to be fully energized and ready to take on the world.

Greg Hickman When It Counts - Make It Count. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 3, 2004.

Life is a nonstop parade of minutes, hours and days — a steady string of magical moments that we can choose to use as we see fit. And the manner in which we use or abuse these irreplaceable moments shape the lives we get to enjoy or endure.

Greg Hickman Uncommon Denominator. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 30, 2004.

Have you ever visited a restaurant or retail store and received exceptionally great service? Now I’m not talking about just OK or even better than average service, but truly outstanding service from start to finish? I’m sure you have, but I bet it surprised you a bit, didn’t it? If you are like most of us, anytime and anyplace you are the recipient of extraordinary service nowadays, you sit up and take notice — and notice BIG TIME!

Greg Hickman Step By Step. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 27, 2004.

It has often been said that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Maybe it is and then again, maybe it isn’t. After all, sometimes the greenest grass around can be found on our side of the fence. But in either case, why do so many people remain right where they are today, content to simply gaze at the lush turf in the distance instead of taking off their shoes and stepping out into the plush playground that beckons just beyond?

Greg Hickman Going Somewhere? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 26, 2004.

The world is swarming with all sorts of people desperately wanting to make it all the way to the top; wishful individuals who long to sample the very best life has to offer. And while these hopeful souls can hardly wait to change the direction of their lives, the majority of these folks have no earthly idea how they’re going to make it happen. No clue whatsoever.

Greg Hickman The Company You Keep. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 23, 2004.

Have you ever once considered how much the people you tend to associate with influence the type of life you get to lead? If you’re like most of us, you’ve probably not given it much thought. Your friends are your friends and you generally accept them for what they are — for better or for worse. But if they are of the worse variety, you may wish to reconsider the type of association you have with them if you truly want to accomplish all of your hopes and dreams and here’s why.

Greg Hickman No Average Joe. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 22, 2004.

Do you consider yourself average? By average, I mean wedged somewhere in the middle of the pack; not as well off as some, maybe a little better than others. Not the best, but not the worst either. Living an ordinary life where every day is just another average day, nothing really great but nothing all that bad.

Greg Hickman More Than Expected. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 21, 2004.

If there is one quality that separates the real winners from just about everyone else, it is this: the winners are always willing to do more than expected while the rest of the crowd does as little as they can get away with. The winners are more than willing to go the extra mile while the pretenders have a hard time just doing the bare minimum. So which category fits you best: player or pretender? Why don’t we take a closer look and let you judge for yourself?

Greg Hickman What Might Have Been. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 20, 2004.

In a world overflowing with endless chances for us to make our move and make our mark, why are there so many people who never miss an opportunity to… miss an opportunity? And why do so many people constantly grieve over those chances they didn’t take and those opportunities they failed to grab hold of, constantly reliving their past mistakes and missteps? To a person, these dispirited, down in the dumps folks sadly believe that the best of life has passed them by, having slipped away like cascading sands in an hour glass.

Greg Hickman Wishful Thinking. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 19, 2004.

We all have a number of wishes, those treasured dreams that we hold down in our hearts and souls. These dreams come in all shapes and sizes; dreams about those things we wish to accomplish or dreams about the magical moments we hope to live. And it’s in the passionate pursuit of these wishes that we find our zest and zeal for living.

Greg Hickman Nothing Doing. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 18, 2004.

If you constantly expect nothing good to occur in your life, then why on earth should you be surprised if nothing of note is exactly what you get? By expecting nothing, you set the stage for nothing to happen. And a life filled with nothing doesn’t sound like a very exciting life, does it?

Greg Hickman In Need Of A Good Deed. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 15, 2004.

Every one of us knows how excruciatingly uncomfortable life can become when the ball keeps bouncing the other way. Like it or not, we’ve all been down that old rough and tumble road before. At the very minute we begin thinking things couldn’t get any worse, they do. Apparently out of luck and desperately short of hope, we begin feeling tired, discouraged and completely frazzled from head to toe, wondering how in the world we’ll ever turn things around.

Greg Hickman Never Mind. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 14, 2004.

If there is one thing of which there is absolutely no shortage of in this world, it is advice given by others. Everywhere we turn and everywhere we go, we are inundated with a tidal wave of unsolicited advice from all sorts of people. Some of these individuals are well intentioned folks that would like to help us out. And then there are others who are doing little more than meddling and being nosy. In both instances these people are quick to tell us what we should be doing and how we should be doing it.

Greg Hickman Aspire To Something Higher. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 13, 2004.

We all have wondrous dreams of how we wish our lives could be, beautiful breath taking imagery that delightfully dances across the silver screens of our minds. And it is in these dreams, those cherished beliefs that we hold deep down in our hearts and souls, that our destinies are shaped.

Greg Hickman When A Little Means A Lot. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 12, 2004.

Have you ever wondered why you sometimes come out a day late and a dollar short when you’re working on your really big goals or projects? If you’re like most of us, you know all too well how the story goes. Just at the very moment when you’re about to make a really big splash, someone or something finds a way to rain on your parade.

Greg Hickman Better Late Than Never. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 8, 2004.

Every day we hear countless people complain about how they wish they had done this or wish they had tried that in their lives. To hear them talk, you would think that there is no end to their ‘could have, should have, wished they would have’ list. What a sad tragedy to be sure.

Greg Hickman High Octane Optimism. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 6, 2004.

There are two basic kinds of people in the world: optimists and pessimists. Oh sure, we’re all different and each of us possesses traits and characteristics that are uniquely ours and ours alone. But regardless of whether we acknowledge our proclivities or not, we do tend to lean one direction or the other as it relates to the way we live life and how we view the world around us.

Greg Hickman The Power of One Idea. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 3, 2004.

Most of us are familiar with the old phrase, “A penny for your thoughts,” where we would gladly pay a penny to know what’s on somebody else’s mind. And while what someone else is thinking may prove interesting, the thoughts and ideas we hold in our own minds are the most important by far.

Greg Hickman Your Moment Is Now. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 29, 2003.

Why do we often insist on looking far and wide for our golden opportunities? Rather than revel in the magic of the moment at hand, we too many times choose to instead peer intently into the distance beyond; frantically searching the horizon in hopes of discovering those once in a lifetime chances that can turn our heads and turn our lives around.
