Tampa, FL – Stop whining and start winning
Winners create a mindset that happens when incremental choices become their being. Winners might lose a big game, miss an important shot or even have a business fail. But winners don’t make excuses or whine, they learn from mistakes or failures and grow. They analyze what to work on and focus on becoming better for when the opportunity comes again.
Winners expect a positive result and do not rely on hope. They create their own destiny by incremental improvements every single day. Start winning and stop whining.
To your success,
Marietta, GA: Overcoming Fear is Courage
I was rereading Jack London’s classic, White Fang and the recurring theme of fear, courage and struggle which is depicted so clearly and beautifully.
We develop courage when we confront our fears and adversity. Life can be harsh at times, focusing on being on task in the moment which grounds our thinking. Don’t let anxiety and fear take root.
Kennesaw, GA – Make Encouragement a Habit
Everyone has the same number of minutes or every day. Encouraging others is an easy habit that compounds the confidence within yourself.
Start small. Build momentum and be blessed.
One of my favorite life mantras has always been “Always be kinder than necessary. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle”.
In the Holy Bible Apostle Paul, through God’s wisdom and Spirit, has encouraged us to be kind to people.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
Today, I encourage and challenge you to be kind only to one person. We can be kind when having God in our life.
Genuine kindness is great!

Marietta, GA – Becoming great….
“Start where you are,
Use what you have,
Do what you can.”
– Arthur Ashe
Arthur Ashe was a fantastic tennis player who helped change the world with his talents and gifts. Even though Arthur retired in his early thirties, he became known for his determination to leave the world a better place. His speech at the United Nations was broadcast far and wide as a call to invest in AIDS research and inner city improvement.
Be encouraged that you can make a difference in someone’s life like Arthur did. You will never know how many people watch you in a personal and work context. You too can change the world by subtle contributions
#Be a Change for Good
PS. Today’s shout out goes to Scott Manness who encourages me every time we meet. Scott’s generosity will forever be remembered by my family. Thank you Scott for your friendship and encouragement.
Kennesaw, GA – Relationomics
“Facebook is everyone else’s highlight reel.”
– Dr. Randy Ross
Dr. Ross presented his latest book at a luncheon in Marietta, GA in 2020 and I was able to speak with him afterwards. Our relationships are found beyond our physical reach as Facebook has shown us. We watch others, others watch us. Developing strong bonds with a few good relationships can extend way beyond just “who you know” to include “who knows you”, and your reputation via relationships.
PS. Bryan Jostworth is more than a great brother in law. He’s also a terrific role model in being a great relationship builder. I have quietly watched his integrity over thirty years and can say with certainty that we are known by our relationships and not by words alone.
Kennesaw, GA – Virtue and Veracity
“Lead boldly, shine brightly.”

Kennesaw, GA – Do good work
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23
We were created in God’s image and called to be productive which glorifies him. Doing everything to the best of our abilities is required. When Christ returns we will have to give an accurate account of our service. See Romans 14:12
Marietta, GA- “Confidence, not fear”
“CONFIDENCE is the triumph of action over thought. No FEAR!“
This post goes out to my good friend, Mark Gallagher, who embodies the “Confidence, No Fear” lifestyle. I’ve known Mark for several years and he encourages me every time we meet. His confidence is so contagious because he follows his internal moral compass that gives him the direction that he needs to go.
Marietta, GA – “Confidence”
“Confidence is about doing something without feeling an ounce of self-doubt!“
When you know, you know. When you have truth on your side and you feel what’s right in your heart, you have the self-confidence to accomplish anything.
