Moving from good to great

Moving from good to great

“What if you knew your life would work out for you when you realize every decision you make is based on everything that has happened in your life? Think about that… that’s big! Now for a quick test. Check off the ones that you don’t do.  Ready? “Are you paying attention? Are you aware of what you do? Are you paying attention to the results you get? Are you paying attention to how you feel? When was the last time you took stock of what was going on around you? Are you paying attention to what you do, or are…

Dreams can come true

Dreams can come true

I was born into a once upon a time and a happily ever after world. There was a song in the musical fairy tale Cinderella that claimed: A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep. In dreams, you will have no heartaches, whatever you wish for you keep. Have faith in your dreams and someday, your rainbow will come shining through. No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dream the that you wish will come true. Then you wake up. What?!!!  You mean all I need is faith, and my…

Othering, diversity, and inclusion

Othering, diversity, and inclusion

When I walk, I intentionally “unplug”. There is nothing on my body to indicate how many steps I have taken during my four-mile adventure. I consciously immerse my senses in the marvels of nature; birds soaring in and out of trees, dogs walking their owners, and humans chasing the healthiest versions of themselves. I am at peace. Yet sometimes, today, for instance, annoying thoughts invade my peace.Today it is the concept of “Othering”. “Othering” means any action by which an individual or group becomes mentally classified in somebody’s mind as “not one of us”. Rather than always remembering that every person is a complex…

What do you do when coaching is not a choice?

What do you do when coaching is not a choice?

Coaching is a process of relationship building and setting goals. The coach develops specific skills for tasks, challenges and performance expectations. How well you coach is related directly to how well you are able to foster a great working relationship. One of the critical ingredients of effective coaching is the ability to ask the right questions. “How many of us are aware there is a right and wrong way to ask a question? Do you know if you ask the wrong question you won’t get the information you need? Nowhere is this truer than in our relationships. For example, rather than asking,…

History is my hobby; opening secrets of the past

History is my hobby; opening secrets of the past

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”[1] “History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.”[2]  “The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity – or it…

What does it mean to be “Mountain Strong”?

What does it mean to be "Mountain Strong"?

“What would you do if you had no home and no family? Where would you turn if every road ended at a brick wall? Sarah Bishop Hart, a small, gentlewoman from the hills of Southwest, Virginia was born into a world without hope. When she was five years old, her father her out to a family she had never met. From that day, Sarah never knew a real home or what it is like to have a true family. She ate from table scraps, slept in outbuildings, and never felt welcome – no matter where she was. She lived with…

 What happens when you have to be light in the darkness?

 What happens when you have to be light in the darkness?

“At night, the ocean can be a huge dark place. When riding the seas, you can never know for sure if the water will be calm or turbulent. You never know if you will drift off course or run aground. That is why there are lighthouses. When ships lose their way, they are guided by the lighthouse. When there is trouble or danger at sea, you can seek refuge by the lighthouse. During a storm, the lighthouse will always guide the ships safely to shore. Best of all, there is always someone in the lighthouse waiting. Be that someone. “Be…

What do you do when you feel powerless?

What do you do when you feel powerless?

It’s 2:21 am, and I can’t sleep. I crawl out of bed and drape my exhausted body on the couch in front of the TV. Late night TV is usually an effective sleeping pill. The microwave dings, announcing that the water is hot enough to make a cup of Sleepy Time tea. But the TV images and words bring me fully awake. In high definition, I see a colorful red, yellow, and white circle spinning across a map of the Carribean. I hear words like”catastrophic” and “150 miles per hour”. The scene morphs into a long line of people hugging their life necessities…
