Quote and Question: Change IS coming

“Resolve to be a master of change rather than a victim of it. ”
– Brian Tracy


Change IS coming. No doubt about that.

Change is coming …

  • work
  • home
  • technology
  • economy
  • family
  • health
  • children
  • Everything will change sooner or later.

But here’s the thing; You get to choose to either be a master of change or a victim of change.

What role do you choose?

What makes us hold on to anger for so long when we know we should (must?) forgive?


The surprising affect your friends have on your New Year’s resolutions

“Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” – Russian Proverb


We are almost 8 weeks into the new year. How are your New Year’s resolutions? Many people don’t even set a New Year’s resolution, (or goals), but many do. And they typically struggle. In fact, according to a survey conducted by time management experts FranklinCovey, a full 35 percent of New Year’s resolutions are broken before the end of January of the successive year.

Why do so many people fail to change so frequently?

That’s a BIG topic, but let’s start with addressing one of the most critical factors – the power of your peer group.

Parents and teachers are keenly aware of the power of peer groups to influence behavior and, ultimately, their lives. Are you?

Try this simple exercise:

  1. Write down the names of the five people you spend the most time with on an average week.
  2. Pick one area of your life such as financial (debt, income, etc.), health (fitness level, weight, etc.), relationships (spouse, friends, family), etc.

It’s been said we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.  If you are honest – really honest – is that true in your case? Look at your top five peer list and hold them up to your level in any category; what do you find?


If you want better results start with being very aware of your peer group. (Just like your mother told you.)

Quote and Question: What change do you intend to make in 2015?

What change do you intend to make in 2015?


“We shrink from change; yet is there anything that can come
into being without it? What does nature hold dearer or more
proper to herself? Could you have a hot bath unless the
firewood underwent some change? Could you be nourished if
the food suffered no change? Is it possible for any useful
thing to be achieved without change?
–Emperor Marcus Aurelius
