The power to live an extraordinary life is not defined by anything other than your willingness and desire to step out of the ordinary. Be daring and develop a vision of what is on the other side. Step into the unknown and live an extraordinary life.

Work like there’s no plan B. Adapt, Adjust and continue your journey. Plan B could be a distraction and become your excuse.


“Optimism enriches the present, enhances the future, challenges the improbable and helps you attain the impossible.”

Besides, being an optimist helps you experience increased  physical and mental health.  It is responsible for a substantial degree of reduced stress and more success.  And the good news is that becoming an optimist is really not hard work at all, not at all.

You can look at events in your life in one of two ways:  positive or negative.  When something “good” happens, do you step back and analyze?  Why did this happen?  Look at your strengths and you will see that they had a direct or indirect impact in the outcome.  It’s okay to give yourself credit.  When something “bad” happens do you use it as a learning experience?  Once again, step back and analyze.  What lead to this “bad” thing?  What could I have done different?  Live and Learn.  Remember that “we are not judged by the mistakes we make but by how we respond to those mistakes.”  Did you make a mistake, in judgment or otherwise, that lead to this not so favorable occurrence?  Remember that there will be plenty of times for you to do better in the future.

So, the key to Optimism is to maximize your successes and minimize your, well… your setbacks!

A Definition of Success, by Coach John Wooden

“Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” ~ Coach John Wooden.

A couple of days ago, we lost who in my opinion was one of the greatest motivators ever.  Coach John Wooden.  And this is not just my opinion, it happens to be the echo heard around a nation that will miss him greatly.

Coach, we will miss you!

Success in Life

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children… to leave a world a better place, to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
