06/09/2017 – Do Not Underestimate The Power of a Mentor

I had an amazing phone call today with someone I consider as a mentor.  It is a relationship that spawned from a professional connection while he was with a consultancy that was helping me with salesforce projects and process improvements.  From day one working with this gentleman I knew he was special.  Our relationship grewContinue reading “06/09/2017 – Do Not Underestimate The Power of a Mentor”

05/26/2017 – Stop Being A People Pleaser

Here are my views: I have struggled in the past with trying to make everyone happy or maybe more familiar I had a hard time telling people no.  These are problems because we 1. can not control the happiness of someone else.  2. I believe happiness is a choice. (yes I know what you areContinue reading “05/26/2017 – Stop Being A People Pleaser”

05/24/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 14 (Final Day)

This is the last day of my gratitude challenge but I do not plan on stop being grateful…I simple won’t be using this platform to record and journal my every day reflections.  For this final entry I was going to write only about my gratitude for mothers, but on my way into work I realizeContinue reading “05/24/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 14 (Final Day)”

05/21/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 11

Today on this raining Monday as I write of my focused gratitude from the Sunday that just passed, I can say that silence is something I am very grateful for.  I had a lot of time to myself and while I did not fully take advantage of my time it was good for me toContinue reading “05/21/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 11”

05/20/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 10

My gratitude journal is getting more difficult as the days progress and perhaps that is the point.  Anything is easy if you only need to do it once or a few times.  It is the routine and creating of a new habit that takes the real effort.  Yesterday I went to a wake, which isContinue reading “05/20/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 10”

05/19/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 9

I have gratitude for pain, for the sour, and for the hardship.  For without these things, the pleasure, sweet, and achievements would not be as meaningful.  I want to bring attention to the fact that we all need a struggle.  There is a need to achieve and to have a goal.  I believe that onceContinue reading “05/19/2017 – Gratitude Challenge Day 9”
