Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Sky High. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: I did everything I could.
I put it all on the line.

I did my very best.

Is that right?

Greg Hickman One Lump or Two? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 8, 2012

Taken your lumps recently?

Have you been socked? Rocked? Bounced and bopped? Have you taken a wrong turn, made a wrong move; followed the wrong path? Have you lost your punch, lost your steam, lost your drive and will to win? Does it sometimes feel like you're on the losing end of just about everything? And losing has become the norm.

Greg Hickman One By One. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 7, 2012

Problems can pile up. Pressures can build. Troubles can come in bunches. When too much bad stuff comes at you way too fast, it can leave you feeling overmatched and overwhelmed. Trying to battle all of the bad stuff at one time can knock you to your knees. As the pile of difficulties mount, becoming big, too intimidating; you can shut down. You can shy away. And the bad stuff can take over.

Greg Hickman Beyond A Reasonable Drought. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 6, 2012

There are people who are always about to do something, about to try something, about to start making things happen. But instead of doing, they sit and wait for something to happen before they start happening themselves.

Greg Hickman Fault Line. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 5, 2012

Life's losers evade personal responsibility like the plague. These folks hate to acknowledge mistakes. They hate admitting they were wrong. They rarely if ever own up to their shortcomings and failures. Quick to point fingers in every direction but theirs, these people blame everything and everyone in sight for anything that goes wrong in their lives. When it comes to finding fault, the blame stops everywhere but here.

Greg Hickman Game of the Weak. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 4, 2012

One definition of the word excuse is to justify something; to provide a reason or explanation for somebody's behavior that makes it appear more acceptable or less offensive.

Excuses give people a reason or explanation for their shortcomings, for not getting the job done, for not getting ahead in life. Excuses are popular. Excuses are plentiful. And make no mistake about it, excuses are pathetic.

Greg Hickman Take A Hike. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 3, 2012

Today feels like an all-out sprint. Just like the day before - and the day before that.

Constantly on the go, you're running here, hurrying there; doing everything you can to barely keep up. And keep your head above water. You've got things to see, places to be and a to-do list that's not getting done.

Greg Hickman One Way Or Another. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 2, 2012

You tried. You failed. You tried again. And you failed again. You tried and tried and tried some more. And you failed and failed and failed again and again. Yet you keep banging your head against the wall. You keep trying to make it work. You keep trying to make it stick. And you keep falling flat. All you have to show for all of your effort is a big pile of failures... and a big-time headache.

There's got to be a better way.

Greg Hickman All's Well That Ends Well. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: February 1, 2012

Life happens. Problems happen. And like it or not, mistakes happen.

Everyone makes them. Everyone hates them. And everyone keeps making them.

Greg Hickman Bad Things, Good People, Great Results. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 30, 2012

Why do bad things happen to good people?

This question has been asked a billion times by people from every walk of life. Yet its answer remains elusive to this day. No one knows for certain why people who do the right thing and play by the right rules - people most would consider good folks - have bad things occur in their lives.

Greg Hickman Getting An Edge. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 25, 2012

Ever pushed your abilities right to the edge? Maybe even pushed them a little farther than what you thought you were capable of doing? If you have ever blasted past what you thought was possible and taken flight, you have experienced once of the greatest feelings on earth.

Greg Hickman Too Close to Call. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: September 23, 2012

You're close, real close; close to getting it done. So close that you can taste it. But you've been there before. You've been closer than close, almost there, right on the edge close to closing the deal - and still managed to come up short.

Greg Hickman Flipping the Switch. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 19, 2012

Things were going great. They really were. You were making some right choices. You were making the right moves. Life was rolling along quite nicely.

Then, in the blink of an eye, something went wrong. Things stopped working out, things started falling apart. And your world turned upside down. Suddenly, you lost your verve. You lost your nerve. And you started thinking you can't make things work, you can't make things right. That you CAN'T seem to get things going again.

Greg Hickman You Don't Stand a Chance. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: January 18, 2012

Not a chance.
Not in a million years.
No way.
No how.
Not you.
Not now.
It's not going to happen.

You're not going to make it.
You don't have what it takes.
You are not smart enough.
You are not good enough.
You are not talented enough to make it happen.
You haven't got a chance.

How many times have you heard these encouraging words before?

Greg Hickman Nowhere To Run. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 22, 2011

Some days aren't as good as others (as if I had to tell you that). Some days your path is packed with obstacles and obstructions. There are other days when the roadway is littered with roadblocks. And then there are days when it seems like there are barriers and impediments everywhere you turn.

And that makes for some tough sledding.

Greg Hickman Leaving A Mark. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 20, 2011

Today can be the day you turn things around.
Today can be the day you get things done.
Today can be the day you start chasing your dreams.
Today can be the day you start living your destiny.

Today can be the best day of your life... or just another day.

Greg Hickman Putting The Bad to Bed. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 10, 2011

Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good people lose their jobs? Why do good people get sick? Why do good people have to suffer and go through bad times?

I don't know. I wish I did, but I dont.

Greg Hickman Hit The Road Jack! Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: October 6, 2011

You know the story.

You are up to your eyeballs in problems and pressures. Even though you are doing your best, giving your best, your best just doesn't seem to be good enough. Life feels out of control. You feel out of sorts. And it feels like you are going out of your mind.
