A Healthy Mental Diet

0 - Published November 1, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

An empty head is not really empty; it’s stuffed with rubbish. Hence the difficulty of forcing anything into an empty head. – Eric Hoffer Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Happy Friday and happy November! I like the above quote because it’s a reminder to us to manage the thoughts that occupy our minds. I often mention the […]

Share Your Talents

0 - Published October 30, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good Wednesday morning, ladies and gentlemen! Let me begin by thanking you for being an audience, and an outlet for me to toss my thoughts too. If you’d asked me when I got out of college, what I’d be doing right now, I would have said teaching. I would not have said playing lacrosse still. And I […]

Stress Is A Choice

0 - Published October 29, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! I hear from people all the time that they are “a little stressed out.” I also hear from people that “we all get stressed” sometimes. I wholeheartedly disagree. Stress, like many other things in life, is a choice. I, personally, do not allow myself to use the word stress in […]

The Power of Stories

0 - Published October 28, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good Monday morning! Last week, I had the opportunity to reconnect with a friend of mine that I had not spoken with since college, save a couple of emails. We picked up as if there hadn’t been an 8 + year lapse of communication; as if we’d just been hanging out in the dining hall or the dorms […]

Planting Seeds To Grow

0 - Published October 24, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning! If words are to enter men’s minds and bear fruit, they must be the right words shaped cunningly to pass men’s defenses and explode silently and effectually within their minds. – J.B. Phillips Being a (wo)man of few words can be good. Being a (wo)man of effective, engaging, empowering communication is better. As with […]

Life By Your Terms

0 - Published October 23, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning! Last week I started typing one of these messages, and it went completely off track into another message that I was not ready to send, so I didn’t. As I was typing yesterday, I almost spawned off into a completely different message as well toward the end, but decided to erase it and save it for […]

Managing Our Words

Given my 3 minutes of poetic life, I want to inhale inspiration… Digest divine definitions of diction, and let them pass through my system to the point where… this poem stings the intellectually inclined and creates a process of healing for the intellectually deprived. – Chazz Woodson, Prophecy Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! In poetry […]

It’s OK To Be Flawed

0 - Published October 21, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good Monday morning! Maybe I’m wrong. I’m pretty sure that there was a time in the past (possibly a past life) where I could really sing. I mean, I could drop notes like it was my business. In fact, I’m not really sure why I was never awarded a multimillion dollar recording contract. I guess […]

Learning From Yourself

0 - Published October 18, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Happy Friday! Don’t compare yourself to others. Compare yourself to the person from yesterday. I’m not there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday. It’s very easy to look around and see what other people are doing, what they have, where they are in life. To measure our successes or lack thereof according to the successes of […]

Maintaining Control

0 - Published October 17, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning! I just need one little thing to cheer me up. Anything. That’s the tweet that popped up in my timeline last night minutes before I fell asleep. We all hit rough patches; times when we need a little something extra to get us through a situation. Some patches are brief. Some are lengthy. The thing to […]

What Do You Owe?

0 - Published October 16, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! To whom, or for what are you responsible? If our “friends and family” is the best that we can come up with, I think we’re very shortsighted. I don’t expect that we’ll each shell out hundreds or thousands of dollars for every admirable cause on the planet, or hop on the next plane to […]

Value Of Influence

0 - Published October 11, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Happy Friday! Whenever I speak to groups, especially student-athletes and other young people, I make sure to mention that we all have a platform and an audience that pays attention to us each and every day. Whether our audience is 5 people or it’s 5,000 people, we have the opportunity to influence somebody’s life. Does that […]

Average Is My Enemy

0 - Published October 10, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good afternoon! I don’t get any satisfaction from being average. Average represents an acceptance of mediocrity. The day that I’m content with being labeled, categorized, or defined as average or mediocre, will be the day that I’ve officially given up on everything that I’ve ever wanted in life. Even he, who is defined by societal […]

Choose Faith

Good morning! If you have no faith, you’ve lost your battle. – Bill Cosby No matter the battle … on the field, in the classroom, in the workplace, in a relationship … faith may or may not be the catalyst for success, but a lack of faith is the beginning of a commitment to failure. The beauty […]

Clear Vision

0 - Published October 7, 2013 by in The Life, Words of Wisdom

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! As we get older, we tend to move from relying on the advice of others to seeking the opinions of others. We make decisions based on sifting through the the information that we gather from a variety of sources, and then figuring out whether or not it is in line with […]
