Someone Who Has Freedom Always Wins

“Greed is good.” You may recognize that line from the unscrupulous corporate raider, Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas, in the 1987 movie, “Wall Street.” In watching the movie, it becomes apparent what a tremendously awful person Gordon Gekko is.

Do You Live in the Moment?

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” That’s a quote from Ghandi and it’s a great one. Now, it’s Labor Day or after and, traditionally, that’s when the kids are back at school.

Living a Wealthy Life

Morals, character, patience, gratitude, and love. What do these five things have in common? According to an article in Entrepreneur Magazine, they are a few of the essential things that make up a truly wealthy life.

2 Things You Cannot Buy: Time and Love

“He who has his health has a thousand dreams. He who has not has only one.” That’s a proverb from a very long time ago about what I believe is very important to all of us: our future.

When Was the Last Time You Created Awe?

Awesome, dude! That’s probably from a movie like Wayne’s World, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Big Lebowski, or a whole bunch of others. Whichever movie it’s from, the line makes me picture these Southern California, kind of hippy guys going on and on about how everything is awesome.

10 Pieces of Advice for Graduates

You may have recently come back from one or more graduation ceremonies where you heard a graduate speaker talk about the rules they’ve had in life, the road ahead, or whatever it happens to be. That comes up a lot this time of year, so it’s a good time to take a deeper look into how this advice works.

Do You Take the Good Advice That You’re Given?

“It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take.” That’s a line from a song that came out in 1996 called Ironic by Canadian artist, Alanis Morissette.

This song was on the top 10 list back in its day and every time I hear it, I think of someone in my life who is having a hard time taking any advice whatsoever. It’s as if they’re closed off to everything.

Building Deep Friendships to Help You Thrive and Grow

My wife is my BFF. If you know what that means, you know I’m saying she’s my best friend forever, hands down. Why do I say this? I started thinking about this when I came across a quote from Aristotle, saying, “Wishing to be friends is quick work. But friendship is a slow ripening fruit.”
