Let me introduce you to a friend of mine, Zig Ziglar.
You may or may not know that name. You may have heard the name and never really knew anything about the man or the message he shared over the 40+ years he was sharing it. I hope I can help answer both of those questions as I tell you my Zig story. You may have heard he is a sales trainer, a self-help author, a goals trainer, an attitude changer, and positive attitude evangelist. All those descriptions are accurate but not complete when considered individually. Continue reading One of 250 Million
“In 2007, after winning the Heisman, I was told I was the best in the world. And then, three years later, I was told I couldn’t throw. ” Tim Tebow in Shaken
I am sure you have heard of Tebowing and seen photos of the ‘John 3;16’ written in eye black in the NCAA National Championship game in January 2009 to draw attention to this verse of scripture. This worked pretty well as over 94 million people Googled this verse during that game. What happened exactly 3 years later in a playoff game between Denver and Pittsburgh is a part of this story you probably have not heard. It is pretty amazing too. Continue reading Shaken, but standing firm

I hope the title got your attention. That was the intent. I know those who follow politics are aware of Republicans in Name Only or RINOs as they are less than affectionately called. This is not that but it IS related, sort of. They both end the same way – In Name Only.
I just finished reading If You Can Keep It, the latest book by Eric Metaxas.One of the central thoughts put forth in this book is the fact if we, as Americans, do not wake up and take control of our government and our country we are on track to becoming America in Name Only. I agree with his assessment. We have been heading down this path for many years now. Where we are headed is further and further away from the principles that founded this country and made America unique and the country all others want to immigrate to. Too many of us already here have taken our freedoms and responsibilities for granted for too long. Continue reading America in Name Only?

I ended my last post called Don’t believe Phil…or me either published on January 9, 2014 with the recommendation,
“If you really want to understand what Phil Robertson believes get his book unPhiltered, which was published after this article and controversy.”
I recently finished reading unPhiltered by Phil Robertson myself and am glad I followed my own advice. I enjoyed it so much I decided to share a few details about the book as well as provide a postscript to the GQ article controversy that encouraged me and I hope will do the same for you. I made the picture of his book black and white because Phil still believes, as I do, right & wrong as well as good & evil still exists. The fact that popular culture does not subscribe to this belief has no bearing on that truth.
Love God, Love Other People
If you want an executive summary of unPhiltered here it is: Continue reading Reality, Biblical Correctness and GQ
If you have been in the workforce for a number of years I expect you have experienced Career Jumps, Career Bumps, Career Ceilings and Career Opportunities. You might not have recognized them as such at the time but, nonetheless, you navigated through them. As Jon states in the book,
Do you have a Career Savings Account?

Have you ever considered your work to be art?
Jeff Goins, in his latest book, The Art of Work, contends it is and makes a very good case to support that supposition.
This might be rather unconventional but…
I don’t think you should read The Art of Work IF…

Are you rich?
In one of the most beloved movies of all times “It’s A Wonderful Life” ***spoiler alert*** Harry Bailey, George’s brother, says George is the richest man in town because of the life he has lived and the friends he has.
Forbes Magazine says Bill Gates the richest man in the world. Continue reading George Bailey or Bill Gates?
From the title of this post you might think this was a political book expounding on the virtues of how right thinking, in the political realm of thought, is powerful. Let me put that thought to rest for you. It’s not.
What the author does provide in “You & Your Thoughts: The Power of Right Thinking” is much more powerful than any political thought ever…and there have been some powerful political ideas or thoughts.
Enough about, or not about, politics. Continue reading Right Thinking
