Lance Armstrong an Inspiration
Lance Armstrong has already proven he is the greatest athlete ever in the present period. Many ask what drives a man to press on, where does such strength of character come from. How can so much dedication and commitment cause a man to persevere in all aspects of their life? Lance Armstrong is an inspiration to what we all as humans have in common. The level of human intent in our species is well documented and something every one of us possesses.
Whatever it is you choose in your life to pursue give it all you've got; it is the Lance Armstrong way. We are told by great leaders before us to never, ever, ever, ever give up. We are told to press on and we are well advised in the power of perseverance. These are great words of wisdom indeed, but there is no greater words than those backed by action. Lance Armstrong rides the talk and does so for all to see.
We as Americans loves our winners and achievers, you may wish to consider the winner in you. You see we all have the Lance Armstrong spirit to try the best in all we do, to do it right and to make it happen. Many Americans found a bond with the Rocky Story in the Movie. We also all find a bond with Lance Armstrong, a real life character, one we can support for his philanthropy and his victory over cancer. Once Lance Armstrong retires what will he do next? Many speculate, but one thing is definitely for sure, what ever it is; he will bring with him the skills we all have to make it happen. He will bring with him a hard history of beating the odds and of not quitting. Some believe he should be America's Ambassador to the World; I concur; Ambassador to Europe, Vice President of the United States, perhaps President or heading-up the United Nations.
Lance Armstrong knows no limits, he has nothing to prove now; so what drives him? Well, You and I are all driven by our passions and beliefs and truly there is nothing we cannot do; if we want it bad enough. My advice as a follower and studier of history and biographies of our ancestors and present day stand outs is to pick something you love, excel in, have an inner passion for and then GO FOR IT!

How to Put the Sizzle Back in Your Relationship with These Seven Goal Setting Tools
Goal Setting and Relationships?
Trust the Lord and Go to The Hole
This is my new favorite quote. Now to understand it you must know what "go to the hole" means. Go to the hole is a basketball term for going forcefully to the basket to score a goal. It in essence means "Take it to 'em!"
Life Goes On
Boy, do I feel old. Or at least older.

Giving It Your Best - The William Hung American Idol Success Story
Never underestimate the power that comes from following your passion. It never ceases to amaze me what can happen when we put action to work for us and go after the things that we hold a true desire for. I'm not sure if you are familiar with the story of William Hung (www.williamhung.net) or not.
Trusting Yourself and Others
How come, as women, we always second-guess ourselves? Are we not confident to choose a mate that has the characteristics of what we yearn for or start and operate a business that we have a passion for? Who can you trust?

A Key In Hand Is Worth A Thousand On My Desk
A key fault I have, and I can only talk about one fault at a time, is the tendency to get busy. I often find myself chasing my own tail. What I will do with it when I catch it is beyond my understanding. However, this notwithstanding, I fall into the trap time after time of getting too busy for my own good.
Its The Journey, Not The Destination
Don't you just hate clichés like the one illustrated in the headline of this article? I know I do. But love them or hate them, most of us must admit that such adages and clichés are often grounded in truth, and this one is no different.
Just the other day, I escaped the business of my daily life and sought refuge on the water front here in Montreal in an attempt to recharge my energies.

Its The Little Things That Count
Have you ever been in the situation where you have become so focussed on achieving a goal that you have done so at the detriment of everything else in your life?
You Reap What You Sow
There is an old principle: You reap what you sow. In fact, it is about as natural of a principle as you can get. When you put an apple seed into the ground, you always get an apple tree. You reap what you sow.
Each Moment Is To Be Treasured
Let us grasp and treasure each precious moment of our lives. The previous moment is gone and the next is on its way. In truth, all we ever really have is this exact, precise moment in time.
Reclaiming Our Resilient Spirit
Our spirits are taking a beating. The daily barrage of bad news, violence, shrinking resources, global warming, and economic slowdown can put us in a state of frustration and paralysis. Some days, getting out of bed can be a challenge.
The Red Ribbon
Everyone wants a blue ribbon. Blue. First place. The best. Even kindergarteners want that blue ribbon. In sports, I was never a blue-ribbon person. In a race I was always last. In baseball I was as likely to get hit on the head as to drop the ball. In basketball I was fine as long as there weren't nine other players on the court with me. Where I got my horrible sports ability, I don't know, but I got it. And I got it early.
Powerful Caretakers - Taking Good Care of Ourselves First
Our community consists of powerful caretakers. We do a great job of assisting and loving those around us. However, many of us fall short when it comes to taking good care of ourselves. We expend our energies giving to our kids, our jobs, our partners, our schedules and more. Then, at the end of the day, we have nothing left for us. If this goes on for too long, we can begin to experience our lives as less than fulfilling.
Inspired For Women
One man can make a difference. I've been saying this and writing around this subject matter for over a decade now. It is not to the exclusion of women as I originally used the phrase in reference to mankind or society if you prefer. A decade ago, my pursuit of the quest to make a difference, to be involved, to inspire ended up taking a back seat. Survival in the moment and dealing with family and health issues took the front seat. Now, most of that is behind me and to a large degree it has been women who have made the difference in my growth and healing; unique powerful, loving, nurturing women.
