Happy Monday! We have discussed fear and how it can stop us on our paths towards success. So how do we get past our fears? Faith. Faith is choosing to believe, having complete trust in something or someone; trust in God, trust your abilities, trust in the process. Without faith, there cannot be success. Faith requires commitment. Donnelly says in Think Like A Warrior, “I am fully committed to pursuing my dreams, developing the unique talents I’ve been blessed with, and be
Happy #MotivationalMessage We have expressed this message a lot over the years, but it is so important to a productive mindset. I was listening to a baseball podcast recently and this message kept coming up. Baseball is a game of failure (so is life) and those who play the game for a long time understand this. Most times we view failure as final and we stop our process; however, in reality you should continue your process and view failures as setbacks or struggles that yo
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
Sorry, been out under the weather the last several days. I did get a chance to watch Phil’s historical win on Sunday and his message is so true in all walks of life. Use your failures/setbacks/adversities to fuel you!

Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/17/21) Last night we had family movie night and the movie was, “We Are Marshall.” It is about the tragic story of the Marshall University football team and athletic staff members dying in a plane crash in 1970 on their way home from a game, and the process of starting the program back up. As you can imagine, there were a lot of challenges rebuilding the program back to a competitive level, and many people did not want it to happen at all. The ne

Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/03/21) Part Two In the book, Think Like A Warrior, Darrin Donnelly speaks about the importance of being gr ateful, loving what you do and attacking “each day with joy and enthusiasm” (p.226). Approaching each day with this type of positive mindset allows you to create and capitalize on the day ahead. When you are focused on the passion and love you have for your purpose in life, it is hard for negativity to creep in; and if it does, remember to a
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!
