A Matter of Commitment
Success in any field or endeavor is truly a matter of commitment.
I’ve read several blog posts lately in which the writer was being somewhat critical of those (in this case, those of us in the online and network marketing community) who can’t seem to commit themselves to one business and stick with it, or who promote or delve into several businesses or products at the same time. Each of these writers intimated (or claimed outright) that doing so was a sign of lack of commitment and certainly one of failure. In the case of jumping from one opportunity to the next, I tend to agree. Obviously there is little if any commitment in that case, just a perpetual search for something that might work.

The question is how we manage stress when it goes beyond what we perceive as normal. Continue reading
At least once in a lifetime — if we’re fortunate, many times — someone appears in our life who we realize at some point served as a soft, quiet influence. Often this realization doesn’t come until much later, after they have gone from our life and it’s too late to thank them. Continue reading
Squirrels and the Fear of Heights
I wonder if squirrels ever have a fear of heights.
Have you ever just sat and watched squirrels scurry up and down trees, jumping from one branch and the top of one tree to another with seemingly no effort or fear of falling? I especially love it when two or more squirrels start chasing each other up and down and round and round and over and across almost faster than the eye can follow. Continue reading
