“It’s natural for people to doubt me because of my appearance, but the limits others place on me often become a burden. At a very young age, I understood the importance of credibility. So I make it a point to always show who I am by actions and not simply... Continue reading

Is success about how you make others feel or is it about how you feel at the end of the day? I think it’s both. There have been times when I have done my job – to the best of my ability – but in the end, I could tell... Continue reading

I had a very humbling experience a few days ago. I joined my wife, Shondell and our oldest son, Christian, on a reenactment of The Mormon Trek. It was a 1300 mile journey that took place in the mid 1800’s. Although generally referred to as The Mormon Trek, many others... Continue reading

When we see someone for the first time, who do we really see? At that moment, we probably only see what’s on the outside. However, when we meet someone, what do we see? If we look deeper, can we see into the core of that person? Is it possible to... Continue reading

Many of us enjoyed the 4th of July holiday by spending it with family and friends. We were entertained with parades, feasted at barbeques and watched the fireworks in awe.

This week-end I’ll be attending my grandparent’s 60th wedding anniversary. Sixty years of marriage. In today’s world, some consider six an accomplishment!

A very special holiday is approaching and it reminds me of a story I recently read. There are certain similarities between mine and the one you are about to read. It’s about having dreams, facing unbelievable odds, and being inspired to achieve those same dreams. In 1883, a creative engineer... Continue reading

Many cities celebrate Memorial Day with parades, speeches and the decoration of graves. When I think of this day, I am reminded of the respect and honor shown to those brave young men and women who have died defending our country. I know many of you have seen this before,... Continue reading

Consider the water glass that is half full or half empty, based on your perception. What do you see? Look carefully; not with your eyes, but with your understanding. Is it half empty or is it half full? Remove your spectacles, polish the lenses of your perception, and look again.... Continue reading

There are certain moments in our lives that seem to stand out. One such moment was brought back a few days ago with headlines announcing the death of Osama bin Laden. We were changed forever on that fateful day with the vicious attack on our country. As a nation, we... Continue reading

While on the plane the other day, I was reading John Maxwell’s “How Successful People Think”. He poses an interesting concept concerning the many thoughts that constantly enter our minds.

Last week, April 3, 2001 was the 10-year anniversary of my accident. I spent that day at home with Shon and my kids. She created a video that made this another day I will never forget. My children wrote and read letters in which they expressed their love and support... Continue reading
