Please put this on your To Do List today…

“Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too.”

The best way to be happy is to make someone else happy.

The best way to be motivated is to motivate someone else.

So it goes both ways.

The quote above is from my teabag this morning, but there’s something that the teabag failed to mention.

It’s difficult to make yourself feel happy.

But you can act happy.

Smile. Act like the happiest person in the whole world. Then, after a while, you will feel happy.

Remember, it’s easier to act yourself into a way of feeling than it is to feel yourself into a way of acting.

This applies to sports, sales or school.

Give it a try.

I’m sure the New Orleans Saints were nervous before last night’s Super Bowl, but they sure didn’t look nervous.

Even when they went for it on 4th down early in the game and didn’t convert, I knew that they were going all-out and playing to win. And as a by-product, they were pleased with the result.

Congrats to the Saints and the city of New Orleans.


Well, today is the day. The Super Bowl. The New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts. All eyes will be on this event. The Who will be performing during the half-time show, and the average 30-second advertisement will cost over US $3 million.

This is the biggest game of the year for both teams, but who will win?

My prediction is:

The winner of the Super Bowl will be…

The team that plays better.

Let me explain – the best team doesn’t win, the team that plays best wins. Does the fastest horse always win the race?

Of course not.

Nothing matters except what happens today.

If there are any Saints or Colts reading this before the game, here’s how you can increase your chances of winning.

1. Go all out.
2. Focus on the process (effort, strategy, attitude) instead of the product (winning).
3. Know that it’s not pressure, it’s perception.
4. Focus on the things you can control and forget about everything else.
5. Don’t try your best…do whatever it takes.

Good luck gentlemen.

Be safe all…


Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Nikki White in Oklahoma City.

“The reason sport is attractive to many of the general public is that it’s filled with reversals. What you think may happen doesn’t happen. A champion is beaten, an unknown becomes a champion.”

The year after Roger Bannister broke the previously thought physically impossible four-minute mile, 37 runners also ran a sub-four minute mile. A year after that, three hundred runners did the same.

There are no limits. Anything is possible. Does the fastest horse always win the race?

For the first time, the New Orleans Saints are going to the Super Bowl.

For the first time, there are two quarterfinalists in the Australian Open from China.

And this is just in the past couple of days!

Michelangelo said that the problem is not that we set our sights too high and we don’t reach them, it’s that we set our sights too low and we DO reach them.

If you have a growth mindset and focus on constant improvement, the sky is the limit.

Shoot for the moon. If you miss, at least you will be among the stars.

See you in orbit…
