So there once was a construction worker named Bob…

Every day when the lunch whistle blew, all of the construction workers would get together and have lunch.

Well, every day, Bob would open up his lunch box, and exclaim, “Son of a gun! A cheese sandwich again?! I hate cheese sandwiches!” He complained about his cheese sandwiches day after day until one of his co-workers finally said, “Fer chrissakes, Bob, why don’t you tell yer old lady to make you somethin’ different?”

Bob replied, “Old lady? I’m single and I make my own sandwiches.”

What are you doing over and over again and complaining about? If you want different results, you have to take different action. The best way to predict the future is to create it.

How are you practicing?
How are you working?
How are you studying?

We all make our own sandwiches every day.

What are you having today?

Thanks for reading.


“The power to succeed or fail is yours alone.”

If you’re reading this blog, you probably want to become better at something. You want to get motivated. But here’s the thing…I can’t create a great person…I can only help bring that person out.

That person is already inside of you.

One of my heroes is Jim Abbott, a baseball player who pitched a no-hitter for the Yankees on September 4, 1993. In fact, I have a signed photo of him in my hallway and it’s one of the first things that I see in the morning.

Jim Abbott was born without a right hand.

If Jim Abbott can, not only play professional baseball, but throw a no-hitter, without a right hand, imagine what you can do?

I use his photograph to inspire me and remind me that greatness is not what we’re born with; greatness is what we do with what we have.

You don’t have to be great at the start, but you need to start to be great.

This morning I woke up thinking about one of my favorite quotes, from Lance Armstrong…

“I’m just a normal guy, and I’m going to show you what a normal guy can do.”

It’s your choice…

if you make the most of today
if you look at the positive in every situation
if you go all out
if you look inside instead of outside
if you procrastinate procrastination

What will you choose today?

What is wisdom and intelligence?

I’ll tell you what I think they are…

Wisdom is knowing what to do with what you know.
