How to Care For the Soul

Feeding your soul involves three steps:

•  The first step is to understand it needs to be fed.

• The second is to understand how it communicates that need.

• The third is to understand what kind of food it needs.

Take a Risk…Walk Through Your Fears

Who said, “It is better to take a chance in life to win a victory or suffer defeat even though scared by failure…than it is to live in the shadow of life as
Some do, never knowing victory or defeat because they have not the guts to try either?”

It was Evel Knievel.

While his words are wise, his life wasn’t. He overdid everything because he was an adrenalin junkie. Any virtue becomes a vice if overdone.

Clay Balls

A man was exploring caves by the seashore. In one of the caves he found a canvas bag with a bunch of hardened clay balls. It was like someone had rolled clay balls and left them out in the sun to bake. They didn't look like much, but they intrigued the man so he took the bag out of the cave with him.

As he strolled along the beach, he would throw the clay balls one at a time out into the ocean as far as he could. He thought little about it until he dropped one of the balls and it cracked open on a rock. Inside was a beautiful, precious stone.

How Trump’s Thinking Brought Him Out of his Financial Slump

Donald Trump generously shares his success secrets in his book, Think Like a Champion.

It is no secret that Trump had a huge financial slump between 1980 and 1990. Trump explains that the battle to pull himself out of the slump was his personal battle to regain power over his own thoughts. To regain power over his thoughts he began listening to great thoughts from great people and then to make those thoughts his own. As he did, he explains that his business slowly, but surely began to turn around.

Time For A Laugh

At the dance on Saturday night at the Eagles Club in Nampa, Idaho, Lyle Sinclair, the owner of the band, came to sit at our table and told a joke I just have to share. I hope it gives you as big of a chuckle as it gave me.

Mr. Appleby went to church with his eyes looking very normal and walked out of church with two black eyes. Mrs. Green had noticed him looking fine when he walked into church and not looking so fine when he walked out.

“What happened to your eyes?” she blurted out.

Perception vs. Truth

Perceptions are built on experience. Experience leads to belief. Those who have had different experiences from yours will, therefore, have different beliefs. Yet most feel their beliefs are true with a capital T and will fight to the death of a relationship to “be right” about the truth of their beliefs. But all they really have is their perception.
Perception comes from how they choose to interpret their experiences, or how they have been taught to interpret them.

JFK Knew The Power of The Mind

The night before JFK was shot, Jacqueline told him she couldn’t stand Gov. Connally and his “soft mouth”. The Texas Governor would be riding with them in the parade in the ill fated convertible the next day). In Jacqueline’s oral history just published by her daughter, Caroline, she also reveals Pres. Kennedy’s insightful response.  

Recreation; What Is It’s Purpose?

While on vacation at Yellowstone Park I am watching people rush from one hot pot to the other and from geyser to geyser rushing to see how much they can squeeze into a day. It caused me to think about recreation and it’s purpose. Recreation is designed to get us away from our hurried fast pace of life allowing us to re-create ourselves…to do something fun and different and to rethink our lives to determine if our actions are in sync with our goals and, if not, to ask ourselves why not?
