Soar Like An Eagle

In celebration of Bald Eagle Day…

Eagles and hippos. They speak not a word but say so much. Even more with the help of “interpreters” like Carl Sandburg.

There is an eagle in me that wants to soar and a hippotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud.

Both soaring and wallowing can be an enjoyable and productive use of time. Read more

Tough Times Never Last

Every time I see this one, I think of my Dad, because years ago, when I was going through a rough patch, he gave me the book by the same title. The content was helpful, but the theme was especially powerful because it came from him. Then and for the many years since, it has reminded me to stay tough.

And now – right now – I could use a reminder about that.  I’m sure many others could as well.  How about you?  Feel free to share it freely with colleagues, family members and friends. It’s easy to post on your computer screen (directions below).

If you’d like to read the book, it’s probably available at your local library or your favorite local bookstore. If not, here’s a link to it on Amazon.

Do you have a favorite quote that reminds you of your Dad? If so – will you share it with us?

Don’t have the freedom?

Many of us, even in America where we just celebrated Independence Day, complain that we don’t have the freedom to do this or that.

We feel trapped by other people and situations and make no effort to do anything about it. In doing so, we often make the trap more confining than it actually is.

Is it really them keeping us from what we want?

Much freedom is there for the taking if we just open our eyes, look for it and take it or request it. Read more

Got a problem? In a jam? On overwhelm?

This week’s quote comes from a lesson from my Dad – one I have shared far and wide with clients and readers. And one I have reminded myself of often – as recently as today.

Problems, like the hill in front of you, keep getting smaller the more you advance on them.

Here’s the story behind the quote. It happened close to twenty years ago. Read more
