Why My Wife Is My Hero
My name is Chas Brothers. Many of you know me as an author of motivational articles directed towards both big and small business alike. As writers, we draw upon our knowledge and experience to offer our readers the one or two things they may need to inspire them to greatness.
Life experience is also a great teacher as are the people who have the greatest influence over us. My wife Jolene has been my source of inspiration and greatness for over 14 years. Those who know me intimately will tell you I don't give away my affections easily but she brings out the best in me even when I don't want her to.
When we met, I was informed by this Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and former Marine, that she was going to take this stubborn Polish, Native American, and former Army dog face and mold me! Friends you can imagine that at times, it was the classic clash of the Titans!
I have seen many things over the years which have caused me to view life in colors of black and white while she sees things from every form of gray imaginable. For me, there were no hero's and I was desperately looking for where I fit in, in the overall scheme of things. The hero I was looking for was right in front of me all the time ? my wife!
Jolene has taught me more about business and cultivating the tools I needed to succeed more than anyone. Without her direct support, I wouldn't be able to do any of this. I'm not surrounded by nay - sayer's ? just supporters. She is my editor, most staunch critic, advisor, and most trusted partner. She has never ceased to amaze me. Despite at times a not so friendly work atmosphere at a couple of previous employers, she always maintained a high level of professionalism about her that was inspiring. And if that weren't enough, when I got custody of my four children from a previous marriage she accepted them and set about teaching me how to be a good father to them.
I remember when I first started in management, I just couldn't wait! I was the flavor of the month ? an autocratic leader just like the bosses before me. Only problem was everyone went democratic on me overnight ? I was lost! I have always possessed the ability to motivate others and help them find their strengths but it was through her refinements of me that I was able to find mine and manage to give myself a break in the process. She has taught me to be tolerant of a great many things that I never thought I would be capable of.
All that I am, I owe to her for she is truly my hero, my rock. We make a pretty formidable team. It took 14 years to mold and shape this team but I was already moldy to begin with so she had a head start!
It's important to me that you know what motivates and inspires someone who enjoys motivating others! I'm better because of her and it shows. Thank you Jolene - I Love you Kiddo!

"Without health, life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering," Rabelais
Lisa was born into a loving Christian family and went through life knowing of The Lord and his supreme sacrifice. She was accustomed to Amazing Grace each Sunday and saying grace before meals. Lisa knew of the birth of baby Jesus; that worshippers came from far and wide bearing gifts. After all this was no ordinary birth.
Maybe Im Amazed at the Way you Love Me all the Time
In Corrogue I am amazed
Just Say, I Love You to Those Who are...
Life is beautiful and lovable with the type of people we have around us. We talk about unconditional love, what is that? The way we love GOD?is unconditional love. Loving a person without expecting anything in return. But in today's world, how many people understand this. Probably none. We hurt people, who care for us. We ignore their love. Every morning and every evening this person walks into our life and tells, "I LOVE YOU", "I LOVE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE AND AS YOU ARE". We never responds back and then one day he moves out of our life.
Life Goes On
Boy, do I feel old. Or at least older.
Today is Yesterdays Tomorrow
The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it finally arrives, it is called today. Today is yesterday's tomorrow. The question is what did we do with its opportunity? All too often we will waste tomorrow as we wasted yesterday, and as we are wasting today. All that could have been accomplished can easily elude us, despite our intentions, until we inevitably discover that the things that might have been have slipped from our embrace a single, unused day at a time.
Beyond the River: Kabbalahs Guidance for Our Times
"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move ourselves in the opposite direction."
The Four Emotions that Can Lead to Life Change
Emotions are the most powerful forces inside us. Under the power of emotions, human beings can perform the most heroic (as well as barbaric) acts. To a great degree, civilization itself can be defined as the intelligent channeling of human emotion. Emotions are fuel and the mind is the pilot, which together propel the ship of civilized progress.

Abused as a Child
Child abuse is a much more common event, than is usually expressed in public. I recently attended an event, where people were asked to discuss their darkest secrets. Out of the thirty or so women in the room, nearly two thirds expressed their darkest secret as, being about child abuse and two had had terminations, created by a family member.

Its Not My Job to Free Tibet
I hate saying that. It feels so very wrong. It's not that I wouldn't like to help them. It's not that I am not appalled at what is happening over there. I have been wrestling with my guilty feelings lately. What have I done to make the world a better place? I started by taking inventory of the areas that I'd love to 'fix'. My to-do list looks like this:
My name is Smarty Jones -- Embracing Gods Glory
Our deepest fear us not that we are inadequate.Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyondmeasure. It is our light, not our darkness, thatmost frightens us?..We are born to manifest theglory of God that is within us?.And as we let ourown light shine, we unconsciously give otherpeople permission to do the same.
It Only Takes a Spark - Pass It On
Great inspiring people have influenced people in every area of life throughout centuries. Henry David Thoreau, the great 19th century transcendentalist writer, was influenced by the great Ralph Waldo Emerson. Thoreau was the impetus for Ghandi's and Martin Luther King Jr's civil disobedience, which ultimately changed the shape of the world for a better humanity. Socrates taught Plato who taught Aristotle, who collectively remain the greatest philosophical trio in history. We often stand on the shoulders of giants. And we can notice connections such as these throughout history--a lineage--a passing down of wisdom. Such is the case in the drumming world as well. It only takes a spark. And that spark can potentially inspire many to enter a new encouraging world, accompanied by enthusiasm, new hope, and excitement.

The level of human intent in our species is well documented and something every one of us possesses.
