Happy #MotivationalMessage Having a relentless mindset means that no matter what you face, you are choosing to push through towards success. Darrin Donnelly hits on this point in his book, Think Like A Warrior. When we set off on a path toward fulfilling our dreams, we know we are going to be presented with obstacles. The question we then face is whether those obstacle will just slow us down or make us quit all together. With a never-give-up attitude we are choosing suc
Happy #MotivationalMonday (06/22/21) Sorry this is late, took a week off for vacation and my son’s baseball tournament. I hope all you fathers had a great day this past Sunday. 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 b
Happy #MotivationalMonday (06/07/21) When it comes to accomplishing our goals, it is really important to recognize that there are always things that are going to try to distract us from the process of success. Unfortunately, naysayers may be some of the distractions that we face. In the book, Think Like a Warrior, Darrin Donnelly says, “Naysayers represent the voices of fear and cynicism...” (p.3). It is not easy to ignore either of those things; however, if we can become
Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/31/21) #MemorialDay Making sacrifices in life is to let go of something truly important to us. The vast majority of us have never had to do that with our own life. Today we celebrate those who have paid that ultimate price. The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude. - Jeff Miller Please remember our past and present members of our military and honor them by living your best possib
Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/26/21) #Urgency “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” – Les Brown Les Brown’s quote
Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/19/21) #Perseverance
Mental toughness is something we all strive for. However, it is difficult to achieve until you’ve faced and persevered through life’s struggles.
Although adversity is not something we welcome with open arms, it is a part of the formula for growth. So the next time you are faced with adversity, remember to persevere! On the other side of that struggle will stand a much stronger and better YOU!

Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/12/21) #Motivation #Attitude In society we are sometimes consumed with someone’s ability, which is a great foundation to success. However, there is much more involved in the recipe of success. A person’s motivation and attitude are a couple of important ingredients that allow someone to reach their pinnacle and keep pushing the limits.

Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/05/21) #Energy For over five years now I have been consistently writing Motivational Mondays. I love finding messages/quotes and writing up my interpretation to bring motivation to someone’s life. It brings a therapeutic feeling to my own struggles of adversity. It keeps my mind in the state of a growth mindset, which is the “why” behind the creation of my foundation. However, at times life becomes busy for all of us and you lose that motivatio
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/29/21) #Mindset Too many times our pain and/or failure discourages us from trying. Why?! Are we afraid of looking bad or putting ourself out there in a vulnerable state? Research anyone who is or was successful, and I guarantee you will find something very similar to this Jordan message. Motivation is a very powerful thing when driven by the correct mindset. Which mindset have you had lately when it comes to your failure/pain? David Bultema - Fou
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/15/21) #Gratitude It is so easy to focus on the negative things around us. Those are the things that are constantly challenging us, that we strive to get past. However, focusing on those treasures in life instead can help us through those tough challenges. Treasures are not necessarily material, and our most valuable treasures rarely are. Take a look around and count your treasures. Really focus on those positive things in your life; they may
