MY Part Makes a Difference

Each one of us already has the gifts, drive and experience to contribute in a meaningful way. But I know to many amazing people who consistently wait to be prodded by someone else to move…and do…and be productive. No perceived limitation or condition can stop you, unless you allow it

Keep Going

There are some things that only come to those who refuse to quit.💡 Literally, “not stopping” is the only ingredient that many of us miss. Whenever I have a burning vision to accomplish something I promise myself that I will not stop…until I succeed. And I make that promise before

How High?

How high are your standards?👆🏽 I’ve learned that the true benchmark of success is not who I can surpass, but how consistently I am reaching and exceeding my own high standards. Standards are not easily tossed aside or broken. They ought to be non-negotiable. In fact, a standard that can

The Today Affirmation

Today, enthusiastically and gratefully celebrate that I woke up. Today, begin by loving myself, then let that same love guide how I treat others (regardless if they deserve it or not). Today, do one thing for one customer, with absolute perfection…then repeat. Today, tell one colleague that I value them and why.

Today is NOT the Day

If anyone is going to do a shortcut, it won’t be me. I refuse to do my job half-way. Not today. There are all kinds of ways for things to go wrong. Let them be accidents. I will not allow myself to intentionally do less than I am capable of doing.

I Have Your Back

📣To all leaders everywhere: Imagine that each of your team members wrote this to you…
⭐I need to know that you trust and believe in me. A mission statement or memo won’t do. I need you to tell me…and mean it.

Special & Different for a Reason

You may not know the reasons for why you went through what you did, but you MUST know that you are special & different for a reason!

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who do you think you are? You’ve taken one step forward, but you’ve stumbled two steps backward.

You’ve thrived, and you’ve failed.
You’ve progressed, and you’ve regressed. You’ve transcended, and you’ve descended.

Don’t Demotivate a Motivated Person

“Would you Iike a bag for those books?” That is what she asked me. I’ve been going to our neighborhood library with my children for over 11 years, and NO ONE has EVER asked me that question. Even when I had tall stacks of books.📚 This time, however, I saw

Take the Wheel

What should we do when we know exactly what to do, but still don’t do it? What should we do when we know precisely what NOT to do, but do it anyway?🤷‍♂️ What should we do when we THOUGHT we were in control, but come to find out that we

Keep Saying Your Name

What Is Your Name?

What is your name? How do you say it? How do you spell it? Is your voice strong when you say it? Or does it waver? No matter what you may think, your name means something. It’s a declaration that you are here and are meant to be acknowledged. Otherwise,

It's not about the giver. It's about the recipient.

Recognition: It’s About the Recipient

If I want to make you feel recognized, then I should know what makes YOU feel recognized. It may sound like common sense, but I can assure you that it’s not common at all. 📣Recognition is not about the giver; it is about the recipient. Years ago, when I was
