Wanting More


Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.

Viktor E. Frankl

Sometimes bad stuff happens. We’re cruising along feeling pretty good about life in general, and then we get blind-sided by some unfortunate event. Illness, bereavement or a financial set-back.

Lemon Water

Eat Real Food!

If you make anything a morning ritual make it a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon. The benefits are endless and too good to ignore (seriously, do a Google search for yourself)!

Thursday Thought — The Abuser’s Problem with Anger

A Cry For Justice

When your anger does jump out to you — as will happen to any abused woman from time to time — he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can.  Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are.  Abuse can make you feel straitjacketed.  You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use…

8 Beliefs That Limit Your Leadership Potential

Growing Leaders

Frosted-Mug-and-Beer-PitcherA follower, a manager, and a leader walk into a bar. They are all thirsty for a beer but the place is very crowded and it may be a while before they are served. Sure enough, many minutes pass and no one helps them. Feeling annoyed but unsure of what he can do, the follower continues to sit patiently for the waiter to arrive. Unhappy with waiting for the inefficient waiter to come by his table, the manager secures a menu from the hostess, analyzes the beer options, assesses the cost of an import vs. domestic beer, and finally signals his urgent readiness to order to the waiter across the room.
