P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

Need some motivation? Take some motivation.

You guys know I’m always trying to share motivational stuff. Probably a few of you have become cynical. Frankly, I fight that feeling at least once a week.

But I’m here to tell you that I strongly believe we must exercise our minds (and our belief systems) as much as we should exercise our bodies.

So, if you need some motivation? Take some motivation. If you don’t need any motivation. Or think it’s not worth believing all things are possible, then pass on taking some motivation.

I just finished watching this, and it helped. I have it saved and I’ve watched it at least a dozen times (along with many others).

And every, single, time, it, helps.

Motivation. Faith. Belief systems. These are like exercises that must be practiced. Watching this video is like doing a set. You need to do sets and just like when you exercise in the gym, you don’t just do bench press one time in your life. You revisit it. Often.

So, watch the video. Often.

Keep the faith,

Twelve tips for improving yourself at work and in life

This is a great article that applies to where-ever you are in life and whatever job you’re doing. We all need to constantly be improving our attitudes and our skills. As I once read, you must also exercise your mind, not just your body.

Here’s the link: Twelve tips for becoming a charismatic and unforgettable leader.

My favorite ones were No. 4, “Self doubt should be left out,” and No. 9, “Body language speaks for itself.”

No excuses, no matter how old you are

Now if this doesn’t motivate you, then nothing will!

No excuses, indeed!
