Author Title Click to read
Greg Hickman Catching Your Second Wind. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 16, 2003.

Sometimes the only difference between coming in first and finishing somewhere back in the pack lies in one’s ability to catch his or her second wind. And catching that second wind has a lot more to do with you than the direction the wind is blowing.

Greg Hickman Today's Your Day. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 15, 2003.

Today is the day that you have been anxiously awaiting. That's right; it's your day to start living life the way you would have scripted it, your day to start living your dreams. It's the day you can finally seize control of your life once and for all and start making a difference. And what a day it promises to be - a day you'll cherish forever,a day you'll never forget.

Greg Hickman Show And Tell. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 12, 2003.

The old saying that talk is cheap is certainly true today. More than ever before, it seems like there is a lot more talking than doing taking place. But that shouldn’t really surprise us, should it? After all, it’s a lot easier for people to talk a good game rather than just go out and play it.

Greg Hickman Why Save Your Best For Last? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 12, 2003.

Always seeking to do our very best is what prime time living is all about. That winner within us all craves the opportunity to let it rip — giving it our best shot every time out. Yet we sometimes fail to give it our all, feeling compelled to hold something in reserve just in case it’s needed later.

Greg Hickman Healthy, Wealthy and Wise. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 11, 2003.

Keeping ourselves refreshed and recharged in today’s hustle and bustle world is by no means an easy task. We far too often unnecessarily sacrifice our health in order to maintain a breakneck pace. We push ourselves too far and spread ourselves too thin until we come precariously close to the breaking point. And that’s not good.

Greg Hickman Why Wait 'Til Next Year? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 10, 2003.

Waiting sometimes seems like the name of the game these days. When you think about it, just about everything we do requires some sort of waiting. We wait over here and then we wait over there. We wait and wait and wait some more. It sometimes feels like waiting has become our national pastime.

Greg Hickman No Small Achievement. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 9, 2003.

Each of us is destined for great achievement. That’s right, regardless of whether we realize it or not, we all possess distinctly unique talents and gifts that can take us anywhere we’ve ever dreamed of going. Absolutely anywhere!

Greg Hickman No Longer In Doubt. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 8, 2003.

There’s not a person on this earth who hasn’t felt those unsettling pangs of doubt on occasion. I’m sure you know how the story goes. You’re about to finally step out and make a positive impact, ready to take the plunge and make something exciting happen when all of a sudden you are overcome with an overwhelming sense of doubt.

Greg Hickman Sunny Side Up. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 7, 2003.

How do you approach each day? Are you one of those upbeat and happy souls who tend to see on the sunny side of life — constantly looking for the good and overlooking the bad? Or do you have the tendency to look at the cloudy side of life — invariably focusing on what you don’t have or can’t do?

Greg Hickman Going Out On A Limb. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 5, 2003.

Anytime and anywhere you take a chance and go out on a limb, there is always the possibility of falling flat on your face. Yet the only way you can ever enjoy the fruits of your labor is to have the courage to climb out on that limb — and keep climbing — every day of your life.

Greg Hickman A Date To Celebrate. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 4, 2003.

Every day is a cause for celebration, a new chance to start anew. As a matter of fact, each new day brings with it more opportunity than we could ever hope to handle — way more than we can ever possibly comprehend. Yet we are oftentimes too busy just getting by to see and then seize the immense opportunity that crosses our path daily.

Greg Hickman Potential Energy. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 3, 2003.

I was long ago taught in science class that there were two basic kinds of energy: kinetic and potential. Potential energy was the stored energy of position possessed by an object, while kinetic energy was the energy of motion. In a nutshell, potential energy is the kind of energy that’s just waiting to happen, while the kinetic variety is already HAPPENING.

Greg Hickman Twists of Fate. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 2, 2003.

Moaning and groaning about the cards we have been dealt in life is only human nature. After all, we sometimes look around and see others with seemingly much better hands than ours. Rather than take the cards we have and then play them for all they’re worth, we sometimes fold; figuring that the good life is just not in the cards for us.

Greg Hickman Happy Ending. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: July 1, 2003.

Have you ever noticed how some people working in the same office can be happy as a lark while others seem in a perpetual bad mood? Even though they work in the same office and have very similar jobs, their attitudes do not remotely resemble each other. What’s the deal?

Greg Hickman Pulling Out All The Stops. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 30, 2003.

The world sometimes seems as if it is full of all sorts of STOP signs. Now I’m not talking about the stop signs we see when driving down the street. No, what I am talking about here are the people, circumstances and barriers that prevent us from living the lives we’ve always dreamed of living.

Greg Hickman Rest Assured. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 28, 2003.

All of us know the feeling all too well. Regardless of what you call it — being worn down, too pooped to pop or just plain tuckered out — we all feel the fatigue of day to day living on occasion. And it is at these times that we need to heed our bodies’ early warning signals and take a break from the action.

Greg Hickman Doing A Little Sight Seeing. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 27, 2003.

There’s an old saying that goes, "What you see is what you get." And nowhere is this adage more true than when it comes to the type of life you are able to live.

Greg Hickman Building Blocks. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 26, 2003.

Some of the best building blocks you’ll ever encounter in life can often come in the form of stumbling blocks. That’s right, many of those annoying obstacles and barriers that get in your way and hold you back can actually be turned into building builds with a little work — and the right attitude. So roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work.

Greg Hickman It's Not My Fault, What's Your Excuse? Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 25, 2003.

If there is one thing people from all walks of life have become increasingly proficient at doing, it is in the arena of making excuses. Rather than just do whatever it is that needs to be done, far too many of us are far too busy coming up with all sorts of reasons why we didn’t do this or didn’t try that.

Greg Hickman Going Beyond. Click Here for Passage
Description of Story: June 24, 2003.

It is easy to stand out in a world where doing more than people expect has become an increasingly rare occurrence. After all, doesn’t it sometimes seem as if doing the absolute minimum has become the name of the game these days? Instead of putting forth their very best effort, more and more people seem perfectly content in just going through the motions.
