Toughest Thing About Being A Success?

“The toughest thing about being a success is that you’ve got to keep being a success”.Irving Berlin

Most people go through their life and never comprehend what Irving Berlin is saying here.  It is what it is.

Here’s the thing though.  What do you say?  What do you think?

Do you ever get tired of criticizing other people?  Or does it somehow, foolishly, elevate your life past mediocrity?

These are things that run through my head every single day.  Thought I’d attempt to challenge your thinking.

Oh wait, maybe you want to criticize that.  Hey, at least I’m trying. What are you doing right now that focuses on challenging your status quo?


What Would You Do If….

What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?

Boy, if you knew you couldn’t fail, it’s almost too easy, isn’t it?

But what if you could fail?  What if the odds are against you that you will fail.

Changes everything, doesn’t it?


That’s all I ask, “Why”?

I believe that life is hard, there are no guarantees, rewards are proportional to your effort.

Just to be clear, we’re not talking about becoming a millionaire. Simple stuff. Important stuff. Things that matter.

And the things that matter aren’t even things.

It’s stuff like Faith, Hope, Love, Gratitude, Forgiveness, Self-Control, Joy, Peace, and a few others.

So glad my mid-life crisis quickly turned into a mid-life celebration more than a decade ago.
