Dear Son

The harsh reality, positive change will never come

motivational quote
From social media yesterday, no attribution available.

 

When you convince yourself that you want something (elusive), you will never get it until one thing happens.

For example, do you desire to be positive all the time, but fall back into negative, self-destructive habits?

The harsh reality is this will never change.

Not until you want this change as badly as you want your next breath – only then will you have a fighting chance.

Best wishes for this reminder to be a positive catalytic moment for you.

What are the odds we’ll get a lucky break today?

 

What are the odds we’ll get a lucky break today?

i don’t follow sports. Used to as a teen, but no longer.

i do make a conscious effort to watch as much Track & Field as possible every four years during the Summer Olympics.

Big events like last night’s World Series game 6 finish often happen after i’m asleep.

Cheryl just told me (5:45am) the Cubs hit a grand slam.

Would have been cooler if they trailed by 3 runs.

Oh well, it’s still cool because the win (even without the bases-loaded grand slam) forces game 7.

i might stay up to watch that one.

It always gets harder before it gets easier

Art of Disney store
Walking back from lunch yesterday, just wanted to see if there was anything new.

 

Art of Disney store
Lots of choices.

 

It always gets harder before it gets easier.

Embracing this is the best way i’ve found to keep going.

The classic, “This too shall pass.”

Being a business owner for eight years, the stakes are higher as word gets out. By the way, the first six years i was quietly building and intentionally not telling anyone. Not until i retired from Disney did i go public with my business. That was only 19 months ago.

Business books offer advice to help entrepreneurs, but there is something about real life experience books can’t even begin to explain.

Note to self: There are prudent legal issues that will need to be addressed as your business grows.

The answer you are looking for

Film crew at Disney World
Last night at Epcot, a film crew. There’s never going to be a film crew capturing us at our best.

 

How do i change the things in my life that no longer serve me? I’ve tried everything, and i just can’t seem to overcome the never-ending obstacles and excuses.

The answer you are looking for…drumroll please….

Think small.

And gradual.

The time will pass anyway, do something.

One Question A Day?

What attitude is required to not abandon what seems impossible?

Walt Disney World quote on a sign
Interesting perspective and contradictory to Steve Jobs’ approach.

 

How do you send the right message to your customers? And for that matter, anyone.

People are so diverse. What they like and don’t like. The reasons are many.

Where is the common ground?

And what attitude is required to not abandon what seems impossible?
