I read a great Gandhi quote – and great reminder – yesterday that said: To believe in something and not to live it is dishonest. I remember replying to a friend’s post on Twitter a couple months back. The post said something to the effect of, “I went out of my way to hold a […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, having a team-first attitude means reminding ourselves that “it’s not about me.” As an athlete, it means putting in a little extra work to aid in the success of your team. As a parent it means sacrificing certain personal conveniences on behalf of your kids. As a teacher or […]
I always close out to my camps and clinics by reminding my campers that somebody else made it possible for them to be there, and that they owe that person(s) a thank you. I’ve found this to be true in all aspects of life though. I once read that every successful person has had at […]
Good Monday evening! It’s more than reasonable that we’re our own first priority day to day and moment to moment – especially those of us that are not married and have no kids. It’s natural.
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Although he’s probably not the first, and certainly won’t be the last, Robert H. Schuller asked the question, “What great thing would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?”
There’s more to a positive attitude than our reaction – or lack thereof – to the world around us. It’s more than just looking at the bright side of things. A positive attitude also involves our approach to ourselves. How confident are we in our own skin? How confident are we in our own abilities?
I came across 2 pictures on Google Images. One read, “My attitude is based on how you treat me.” The other read, “Don’t get my personality and my attitude twisted. My personality is ME, and my attitude depends on YOU!”
GREAT morning, all! I’m not sure how driving is where you are. Driving in Miami can be one of the most frustrating things in my day to day life. Having said that, of all the things that could be frustrating in life, if that is one of the biggest, then I am doing just fine! […]
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 […]
Washington Irving may have said it best: “There’s an eloquence in true enthusiasm that is not to be doubted.”
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 […]
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! I hope you had a GREAT weekend and that your week is off to a GREAT start. I appreciate you allowing me to deviate, this month, from the normal routine of morning quotes in order to engage the beginning this project with me.
“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.”
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 […]
