Monday Morning Boost: Are You Enough???

Monday Morning Boost: Are You Enough???

Have you ever wondered if you are enough? I have asked myself this question many times over the years. At one point I didn’t know the answers, and while the journey of my discovery will be lifelong, I’m grateful for the answers I’ve found so far. I pose these questions to you: Who are you? Are you enough? Do you belong here? And most importantly… How Do You Know You Are Good Enough? While your answers may be as complicated…

Monday Morning Boost: Giving & Receiving With Thanksgiving

Monday Morning Boost: Giving & Receiving With Thanksgiving

What gifts of thanksgiving can you extend this week? Better, what gifts of thanksgiving can you receive. We really need both. Gifts of thanksgiving we can easily give could include: an outstretched hand of hope a word of kindness a smile of peace We can also give others the gift of receiving their gracious acts of thanksgiving with gratitude. I like what Mr. Rogers, who is one of my greatest hereos, had to say about receiving with gratitude. In a…

Monday Morning Boost: Intentionally Embracing Greatness

I have been exploring the idea of greatness over the last few days. I reached out through Facebook and ask three questions connected to greatness. What is something you have accomplished or achieved in life you would say is great? What makes you great? Who helps you feel great? Let’s take a look at each… WHAT IS SOMETHING GREAT YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED??? Sometimes we downplay our own greatness.

Monday Morning Boost: “I Just Called To Say I Love You”

Steve Wonder got it right… No New Year’s Day to celebrate No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away No first of spring No song to sing In fact here’s just another ordinary day His message was simply to say I love you for no special reason… No April rain No flowers bloom No wedding Saturday within the month of June But what it is, is something true Made up of these three words that I must say to you…

Monday Morning Boost: Discipline vs. Motivation, Which is Best?

Monday Morning Boost: Discipline vs. Motivation, Which is Best?

I strive to focus on being disciplined versus being motivated. Why??? DISCIPLINE ➡️ INTERNALLY DRIVEN MOTIVATION ➡️ EXTERNALLY INFLUENCED Let’s look at this thought from Morgan Mckell. “Motivation is fleeting. That’s why discipline is so necessary. On the days that we are so unmotivated to do anything, I just rely on my routine and the discipline that I have created for myself. Being a high performer is hard. It’s not easy to do the tough things over and over. But…

Monday Morning Boost: My Perfectly Imperfect “Sunshine” Mother

Monday Morning Boost: My Perfectly Imperfect “Sunshine” Mother

I remember an extra hard day when I was a teenager when I discovered just how strong my mother was. Life at home growing up always seemed to be a struggle. Money was scarce, tension was high, and my self-confidence seemed always on a collision course with hidden icebergs. Yet through it all mom seemed to hold the peace, keep a smile on her face, and shower our home with love. She had a beautiful singing voice and enjoyed softly…

Monday Morning Boost: Can Red Edge Make It?

Monday Morning Boost: Can Red Edge Make It?

I’ve been told many times a business mentor/coach/consultant can not make it in Cache Valley. It would be easy to believe this is true. It would be easy to live down to this assumption. It would be easy to allow interactions to convince me it is true. Here’s what I know. I’m three years and a month into the Red Edge journey. It’s been tough, fun, hard, and easy. All at the same time! Yet, like many of you passionately…

Lean Into The Storm

Lean Into The Storm

I recently had the opportunity to spend considerable time sitting at the feet of the Christus statue on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah. As I contemplated the gift of raging storms and peaceful rainbows that fill our journey through life, I was filled with incredible hope, peace and comfort, knowing I can “Lean Into The Storm” with courage and strength because “The Master of ocean and earth and skies” is navigating the ship I steer. LEAN INTO THE…
