We aren’t born with a good, bad, positive or negative attitude. We choose our attitudes each morning when we start our day. And, we choose whether negative comments from others or bad weather, obnoxious people or a traffic jam will sour an otherwise positive attitude. Don’t allow people or potholes interfere with your goals and […]

What we talk about and how we say it reveals much about our character. If we have a desire to lead, encourage and make a positive difference in someone’s life with our words, we must first examine our hearts. Fill your heart with positive, noble information and thoughts. Jesus said: “The good man brings good […]

No matter what occupation you have or the tasks you have ahead of you today, it should be accomplished with excellence as your goal. If we want co-workers and those we lead to respect us, we should give our best effort each day with a positive attitude. The Apostle Paul said it this way, “Whatever […]

The office intern, the kid in your neighborhood being raised by single mom, the last player on the bench…a simple word of encouragement from you on a consistent basis could be the “game changer” in their life.

Recently, a coach posted something on Twitter that caught my attention. It was all of the positive attributes coaches want from players. It was a long list such as “give your best effort, be a great teammate, respect coaches and teammates, always be on time, have a positive attitude, etc.” I shouldn’t have, but I […]

How can we make better decisions? Max Lucado once said, “Life comes with voices. Voices lead to choices, and choices have consequences.” The answer to the question above comes when we evaluate our choices from an eternal perspective. That helps us to listen to the right ‘voice.’ “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should […]

The Bible has much to say about teamwork. A couple of my favorite verses on this subject: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should not only look to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3,4 Also, […]

I need to work on my game! Not baseball. I’m a little “long in the tooth” to be doing mound work. After reading the following verse, I was convicted to work on my “life game.” Join me, please, so that our families, communities, teams and organizations will benefit from our example. “Set an example for […]
