The Benchmark Track

“I’m convinced that if you’re striving to become the benchmark; you’re intentionally and consistently working to be the leader of the pack; to persistently find ways to grow more solid and rooted than before. If you’re the benchmark, you’re laying groundwork for others, in turn reaching back, helping others to become benchmarks; thereby carrying the torch of community.”

Embracing My Truth

“Many times we say we wish we could go back in time and ‘fix’ or ‘redo’ some of our actions but I’m completely sold that if we make it out of those moments and can look back while we’re sane then it was all worth it.”

Your Character Precedes You

“So, the next time you leave out of room full of people; an interview; a team meeting; an investor’s office; or even out of your house, think about the character you presented. They may forget your name, but your character is often unforgettable.”

Faith – The Driver of Your Future

“For all the recovering worriers, you are not alone. The goal is to remember that worrying must be a practice of our past and that having faith becomes our habit because it is the only driver that makes our future truly successful.”

I’ve Got Life to Celebrate (and so do you)

“When I reflect back on my life, there were times in my past where I could have been dead, in jail, or just in a rut that didn’t offer a shovel to dig out of. I’ve faced chronic sickness and been healed. I’ve taken a last breath before, had breath breathed back into my body and been given another chance to live. I’ve made choices that could have altered every bit of my life and re-directed me to the pits of hell. The damage from all of it sometimes resonating beyond the moment that it impacted. The beauty in it all is that there have always been many more blessings than sickness or death or poor decisions. There was always a new day for me to begin again; to make a promise to myself and my future. With each lesson, I learned to live again and move forward more grateful and aware of what having life really means.”
