ENDURANCE - In order to find your full potential, you must first test your endurance. 
Finding your full potential can cross a broad spectrum of definition. It can be anything from a physical achievement or accomplishment to testing your endurance in finding out if you survive this market. 
When I climbed Mt. Whitney in 2002 (, it definitely tested my physical endurance. In the past year, this business has tested my emotional, mental, physical and financial endurance. 
I trained for 10 months to make my journey to the top of the highest peak in the Contiguous United States. I have been … (2 comments)

POSSIBILITIES - Life's only limitations are the ones we make. 
What are my possibilities for today? 
Is it possible to succeed? 
Is it possible to fail? 
Unfortunately, many people work in a "job" that I would describe as boring. It doesn't make them bad people; it's just not what I choose to do. They punch the time clock at 9...Maybe clock out and then back in at lunch and then back out again at 5. 
In this business, we don't always know what the day holds for us. We don't have time clocks to punch, but we do make appointments. Those … (4 comments)

PURPOSE - A century from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, or how much money I had in the bank...But one hundred years from now the world may be a better place, because I was important in the life of a child.

As I stated yesterday, I don't have to look too far to get inspiration. I have a set of framed lithos, each with their own inspiration phrase. 
We are all currently challenged in this market... 
CHALLENGE - The harder the (golf) course, the more rewarding the triumph. 
For everyone out there that is a golfer, this is easy to relate to. I enjoy playing the most difficult golf courses available rather than dink it around on a marginal layout. I may not score as well, but when I have a good hole or hit an exceptional shot, I tend to remember … (0 comments)

If you want to be inspired, you need to open your mind. We are all gifted in many ways, but sometimes are minds are too closed to see the inspiration that is all around us. 
I don't have to look far to get inspiration. I have inspirational signs all around my office. Let me share some of them with you. 
You must have GOALS...GOALS - A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. 
If we don't get off our butts and experience the world, we will never take a journey. If we don't take journeys, we will live a … (4 comments)
