The GREAT Life: Attitude, Part 1

0 - Published August 19, 2013 by in Motivation

As they say, attitude is a little thing that goes a long way! Every piece of The GREAT Life is a choice. You don’t have to be grateful or express gratitude for everything, you make a conscious choice to do so. You don’t have to make an effort to show respect to everyone (and it […]

The GREAT Life: Enthusiasm, Part 4

0 - Published August 16, 2013 by in Motivation

Washington Irving may have said it best: “There’s an eloquence in true enthusiasm that is not to be doubted.” People, if actions speak louder than words, and your actions are taken with true enthusiasm, nobody in their right mind can doubt your intention. Nobody can doubt the love and passion with which you are doing […]

The GREAT Life: Enthusiasm, Part 3

I’ve had people that are close to me ask what things I get excited about. And I used to simply reply that I’m just not really excitable. As I thought about that question more recently, I realize that the word that I was caught up on was excited. Not a whole lot of things really […]

The average temperature in Providence, RI on February 1st is 25 to 35 degrees, and “is rarely below 11.” And for four years, my teammates and I endured the wrath of the roof on February 1st. The sun had usually already set, if had decided to come out in the first place. It was always […]

The GREAT Life: Respect, Part 3

0 - Published August 9, 2013 by in Motivation

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.” This is one of my favorite quotes. It’s pretty straight forward. It doesn’t need explanation, but it’s a great reminder. The respect […]

The GREAT Life: Respect, Part 2

0 - Published August 8, 2013 by in Motivation

Respect is something that each and every one of us expects. We expect it from our friends. We expect it of our co-workers. We expect it of our children and our parents; our coaches and our players. We even expect respect (usually at the very least) from the people we don’t particularly care for. But […]

“Respect for ourselves guides our morals. Respect for others guides our manners.” – Laurence Stern Pillar number two of The GREAT Life is respect. And while there are numerous ways in which respect comes into play in our lives, the two most basic forms are respect for ourselves, and respect for others. I love this […]

People often ask me how long I will continue playing lacrosse at the professional level. And given that I’m not making millions of dollars doing so, there are a lot of factors that contribute to that decision. But one thing I told myself, long before I reached a point where I actually felt the need […]

The GREAT Life: Gratitude, Part 3

Last week I talked about gratitude as the first and most important pillar of The GREAT Life. When we are grateful, we can practice the other four components with more ease and regularity, because we are recognizing that everything that happens in our lives, has purpose. Rev. Chris Jackson posed the question in church yesterday, […]

The GREAT Life: Gratitude, Part 2

Yesterday I talked about verbal gratitude, and continually finding reasons throughout the day to say thank you. Another way of expressing gratitude is in our work. There are a lot of other areas of our lives in which we can show gratitude, but I’m choosing work, because it’s something that we all have in common. […]

As promised, this month is all about what I call The GREAT Life , which consists of these 5 pillars: GRATITUDE, RESPECT, ENTHUSIASM, positive ATTITUDE, and a TEAM-first mentality. Living The GREAT Life is a choice and, like everything else, it takes practice. Malcolm Gladwell claimed that in order to become truly proficient (great) at […]
