#MotivationalMonday (08/03/20) #HardWork

This is so true! At the end of the day there is no substitute for hard work. If you truly want great things in life, you have to be willing to work for them and grind it out!

What Grind are you on this Monday, or are you only concerned about looking sharp?!

Happy #MotivationalMonday (07/20/20) #Passion

Definition of passion: a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something.  This, in my opinion, is one of the most underrated characteristics of a successful person.  Passion requires zero talent or skill!  To be a great leader you have to be a great teacher. You cannot teach if you do not motivate your followers, and I have found that one’s motivation comes from their passion.  Sure, you might be knowledgeable in a certain...

“The process” has been a subject of our Motivational Mondays several times. I feel like it is such an important thing to remember as we move through life, trying to accomplish our goals.

It’s easy to get down on ourselves when things get hard or seem like the end is never in sight. But we must remember that the process toward achievement is rarely easy or quick. It sometime takes weeks, months, or even years of hard work and perseverance before w...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (07/06/20) #Process

When we see the success of others, often times it is just the surface, or the “tip of the iceberg,” that we are looking at. Their success looks awesome and  it may even look like it was easy to get there. But, what you don’t see is the process it took to yield those results. Successful people fail. They take risks, sacrifice things, and face disappointment. They also show persistence through focus, discipline, and hard work.

Are you only focused on the res...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (06/29/20)

Feelings, or emotions, are part of us, whether good or bad. At times, I find myself riding a wave of “feelings” that I never should have surfed. Many times, those waves lead us down paths of regret. Everyone gets frustrated and angry at times, but when we find ourselves drowning in emotion that is pulling us away from our goals, that is the time to catch a new wave. Choose to ride the positive feelings, and when new waves of emotions hit, choose to surf the ones tha...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (06/22/20) #FathersDay

Fathers are so important in our lives. They have so much influence, whether good or bad. Thankfully, my father had such a positive influence in my life. No matter what, I knew he would be there for me, congratulating me on my accomplishments or picking me up when I didn’t quite get things right. He believed in me, and that made all the difference. I know not everyone is as fortunate as I was to have a dad like I had. However, knowing someone is there, be...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (06/15/20) #Courage

Courage can be defined as strength in the face of pain or grief. Many times we imagine courage as standing up or taking action for what is right, especially when it is out of our comfort zone.
For many people, listening also takes a lot of courage. Sometimes it is a skill that takes a lot of effort and concentration. However, listening to others can greatly benefit your relationships with those around you and be beneficial to your success.
If list...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/18/20) #Jordan Part 4

We are finishing our theme on Jordan and “The Last Dance,” a documentary about Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls championship run. When asked if he was too intense and demanding with his teammates, Jordan said, "I pulled people along when they didn't want to be pulled, I challenged people when they didn't want to be challenged. I earned that right!”

Was Jordan perceived as a tough leader at times? Yes. Did he possibly lose o...

Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/11/20) #Jordan Part 3
 

We are continuing our theme on Jordan and “The Last Dance,” a documentary about Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls championship run. A lot of people consider Jordan to be the best ever to play the game. He is quick to say if it wasn’t for his brother, Larry, and Pippen, he would not have achieved that champion superstar status.
 

Scottie Pippen’s story is an incredible one that I was not aware of until watching this documentary. For him to ri...
