4 Things I Got Right This Valentines Day

Posted on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 in Emotional, How To, Relational, Social, Spiritual, Values

Yesterday was Valentines Day.  Yesterday was also the anniversary of the legend of the green hippo.  If you don’t know that story or want another opportunity to laugh at me, feel free to read it again in Sex, Lies & the Truth – Pt 3 of 3 – The Truth.

I’m trying to grow up, grow more appreciative, take my Valentine less for granted, show the love I think of, feel the love that lives within and follow her example of generosity.

I worked a fourteen-hour day yesterday, but I still got a couple things right.

New Years Gift of Ambition

Posted on Wednesday, January 4, 2012 in Emotional, Intellectual, Relational, Values

Christmas is over, but the new year is here.
You enjoy Christmas presents, it’s time to enjoy a New years gift.

I don’t believe on New Years resolutions I believe in doing.

Give yourself the gift of ambition.

Dream.
Make plans.
Believe in yourself.
Go for what you want.
Find a way to do it.
Get someone to help you find a way.

What gets in the way?

Do you get distracted from your goal?
Find a reliable accountability partner.

Do you get lazy?
Find a goal with a benefit that is better than your excuses.

Last week I wrote that self-esteem insurance would protects us against inevitable emotional pain and loss in case of an “accident”.

I would like that self-esteem insurance to be the best.  I recommended “Triple A” Coverage”.

“Triple A” Coverage”
A – Access your strengths
A – Admit your weaknesses
A – Accept help from others

This week I’ll reveal practical ways that “Triple A” Coverage” helps me and recommend ways that it can help you too.
