Monday Morning Boost: Quotable Words, Memorable Stories

Monday Morning Boost: Quotable Words, Memorable Stories

Are your words quotable??? As leaders, which we each are, we find inspiration from the words of those we respect. We often share that inspiration. Christian author Joyce Meyer understands the power of the words we speak and share. “Words are containers for power,” she teaches. “You choose what kind of power they carry.” I had the honor a few weeks back of my words being quoted by a business leader Melissa Summers. She even created a visual graphic, featuring…

Monday Morning Boost: When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned

Monday Morning Boost: When Life Doesn’t Go As Planned

Fixing a dryer wasn’t what I wanted to do on Saturday. My original plans for the day were to finish painting my office. The ceiling and the Caliente Red wall still need to be done. But a dryer squeaking really loud with a drum not turning well took priority. I didn’t know exactly what I was doing. So I hit YouTube where I found help from Richard O’Banion repairing Maytag dryers and from Hill Bros Review who taught me how…

Monday Morning Boost: Why Are We Still Texting & Driving?

When’s the last time you texted while driving? Or did something else equally as distracting? Not that long ago I’m guessing. Yeah, me too. We should know better, right? Let me share a story, and then some research. JAKE HAWKES Nine years ago texting and driving didn’t have the same awareness level as it does today. But for one family, the night of August 25, 2009, the awareness came crashing home. Jake Hawkes was 19, a recent graduate from Sky View…

Monday Morning Boost: Embracing Ownership of Our Future

No more expecting someone else to solve our problems. Owning our life starts by consistently telling ourselves a better story. Telling ourselves a better story, every moment, consistently, creates better thoughts, better actions, better insights, and better ideas. We live in a world created by the story we tell ourselves. It…

Monday Morning Boost: Why A Better Story Works

Monday Morning Boost: Why A Better Story Works

The storyteller inside our head speaks louder and more fiercely than any other voice will ever speak to us. We sometimes tell ourselves horrible stories of failure. We tell ourselves we can’t do it, we’re not good enough, we won’t succeed. I grew up creating those stories of self-defeat as the narrator inside my head struggled to share uplifting and positive stories. I learned how to better listen to the many positive and encouraging voices surrounding me from family, friends, and…
