Greg Hickman Never Give Up. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 24, 2003.

How many times have you found yourself giving up on your big goals? And I'm not talking about the run-of-the-mill goals that kind of get you turned up a notch or two every once in a while. No, not even close. What I'm talking about are the super exciting, heart pumping, get you going a mile a minute kind of goals that you have pictured yourself attaining at least a thousand times in your mind. These are the goals that bring out your very best; igniting that passion for living that brilliantly burns deep inside your heart and soul.

Greg Hickman Defining Moments. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 22, 2003.

Our lives are made up of years, weeks and days; yet each and every one of these measures of time is comprised of mere moments — life changing, life shaping, life defining moments. Frozen in time moments that offer us insight, inspiration and ideas that can make our lives everything we have ever hoped they could be and more.

Greg Hickman Making Your Move. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 20, 2003.

Have you ever been tempted to really go for something, but for one reason or another you held yourself back? Of course you have; in fact, we all have from time to time. Instead of making your move, letting your hair down and really cutting loose, you opted to lay back and play it safe. What happened?

Greg Hickman Lazy Daze. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 17, 2003.

We’ve all run across lazy people who, by and large, have little if any drive or ambition to accomplish anything worthwhile in their lives. As a matter of fact, these listless individuals generally have no urge to do much of anything at all. And if you have ever had to depend on a lazy person, especially when the chips are down, you know firsthand how frustrating working with a lazy person can be. REALLY FRUSTRATING!

Greg Hickman Time To Rise and Shine. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 16, 2003.

How do you approach each new day? Do you excitedly jump out of bed, full of electrically charged energy and ready to rock and roll; eagerly anticipating all the boundless opportunity this new day is about to offer up? Or do you instead just lie there, wishing you didn’t have to face the day? The manner in which you tackle each morning goes a long way in determining the type of you you'll get to enjoy or endure.

Greg Hickman Counting Your Blessings. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 10, 2003.

Have you ever noticed how many people often focus a good deal of their attention on the doom and gloom struggles we all endure on occasion rather than choosing to look on the brighter side of things? Instead of counting their blessings, enjoying all of the wonderful times and remarkable opportunities that life presents to us daily, why do so many invariably choose to zero in on life’s tough times and challenging moments?

Greg Hickman Don't Be A Blame Thrower. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 6, 2003.

When things go wrong, as they definitely do from time to time, why are so many of us so quick to point the finger and blame other people or circumstances for our failures or shortcomings? There’s a real easy answer: because it’s the EASY thing to do. Rather than taking the hit and accepting the blame, it’s really easy to toss the blame in every direction but ours. While it may be easy, does that make it right? No, it doesn’t.

Greg Hickman Right From The Heart. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 4, 2003.

No doubt about it, life can get downright confusing on occasions. On any given day, we can find ourselves getting beat up and bumped about by life’s assortment of trials and tribulations. Being pulled in about a dozen directions at the same time, we begin feeling ourselves veering off course and getting knocked out of kilter; often losing our sense of direction. At times like these, it can sometimes get pretty difficult to figure out which end is up.

Greg Hickman Seeing Is Believing. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: December 3, 2003.

How many times have you overheard someone uttering the well worn phrase, "I’ll believe it when I see it?" Probably more times than you could ever remember. In fact, chances are pretty good that you have thought or spoken that phrase yourself on more occasions than you can recall. Time and time again, most of us want to see something before we can believe in it. Why is this the case?

Greg Hickman One Daring Adventure. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 21, 2003.

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by an almost overpowering urge to let your hair down and let it rip, throwing caution to the wind and taking a chance against the stiffest of odds? Sure you have; we all have from time to time. It’s just part of that winner within us attempting to make our lives the daring adventures they deserve to be.

Greg Hickman Handle With Care. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 18, 2003.

Life is a precious commodity that we need to handle with the utmost of care; a prized possession far too valuable to ever take lightly or for granted. Each and every day should be viewed for what it truly is — a special once in a lifetime gift from God. Each dawning day presents us with countless opportunities to share extraordinary times with those all around us; a chance to really show others how much we care by our willingness to share the best life has to offer.

Greg Hickman Kind of a Drag. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 16, 2003.

Can there be a more frustrating feeling than being dragged down by those around you; especially your family, friends or coworkers? I’m sure you know how the story goes. There you are, feeling like you’re sitting on top of the world, enjoying the rarified air of a super sensational day, when all of a sudden… BAM! — someone comes along and knocks the wind out of your sail.

Greg Hickman Make Believe. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 12, 2003.

When we were much younger, few of us had any trouble believing we could be or do just about anything. In our highly creative imaginations, we could actually see and feel ourselves living out our wildest dreams, where we WERE whatever we wanted to be. We believed we could — and we did.

Greg Hickman Net Results. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 11, 2003.

Obtaining the results we desire can often seem like a frustrating, never ending pursuit; somewhat akin to a cat chasing its own tail. You know how the story goes. Just about the time we’re just about there, something or another goes amiss. Instead of getting the results we were shooting for, we’re forced to regroup and start all over again.

Greg Hickman Something to Celebrate. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 7, 2003.

With all of the pressure that everyday living heaps on top of us, is it any wonder that many of us seem to spend the majority of our time worrying about just about everything under the sun? We torment and torture ourselves over a variety of worrisome topics.

Greg Hickman Different Strokes For Different Folks. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 5, 2003.

Isn’t it pretty wild to imagine that there are no two people exactly alike? That’s right, in a world populated with billions of people, each and every one of us are distinctly different from anyone else on the planet. And it is these differences that shape the lives we get to live; making us who we are and even more importantly, what we can become.

Greg Hickman Nothing But The Best. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 3, 2003.

What might you consider the very best of life? Now I’m not talking about close to the best or even almost the best, but the very best life has to offer. So what comes to mind when you think about the best things in life?

Greg Hickman Are You Going To Try - Or Triumph? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: November 1, 2003.

When you give something a try, you never really throw your entire heart and soul into the effort, do you? Oh sure, you may con yourself into thinking you’re really giving it all you’ve got, but deep down you know that is simply not the case. Almost instinctively, many of us fail to give a full fledged effort; reasoning that since we didn’t commit to whatever it is we’re doing, it won’t really matter if we don’t finish the job. Who do we think we are kidding here?

Greg Hickman Taking One More Shot. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 31, 2003.

If there is one common thread that weaves is way through some of the most successful people who have ever graced this earth, it is their willingness to take another shot. No matter how low they have sunk and regardless of how many times they have tasted bitter defeat, these winners always, always, always TAKE ANOTHER SHOT! And it is this willingness to keep shooting while everyone else has given up hope that elevates them above the rest of the crowd.

Greg Hickman Absolutely Positive. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 29, 2003.

Staying ‘up’ in the up and down world we live in today is by no means an easy task. And keeping your spirits high when things are about as low as they can go is definitely no walk in the park. Yet the true champions have a certain something going for them that keeps them flying high above the crowd below. So what’s that certain something? It’s their power packed, positive charged approach to life.
