Weekly Writing – THOUGHTS

In his book, Unbeatable Mind, Commander Mark Divine asks his audience, “Are you feeding the Dog of Courage or are you feeding the Dog of Fear?” This makes me think of the character in the movie Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion, and how his wish was to have courage. Which dog are you feeding when faced with challenges? Let’s make sure we feed our dog of courage that is inside all of us with positive self talk, healthy habits and standing for strong values.

Speaking of strong values, speakers Michael Massucci and Greg Amundson are back this week! HOOYAH! Please do not miss this opportunity to learn and grow from these amazing people. Bring your friends and family to hear them as well. Let’s make it the best week of the summer living for others, having a growth mindset and continuing to remove any self-imposed limits.


Have you ever heard the statement, “Humans are creatures of habit?” A definition of this statement is “A person who follows an unvarying routine.” Don’t get me wrong, I believe in routines with positive habits, but if one doesn’t change how will one grow?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. I once read somewhere, “Change is the price of progress.” In her book, The Secret, Rhonda Byrne says, “The law of attraction says like attracts like, so when you think a thought, you are also attracting like thoughts to you.” Bryne goes on to say, “Your current thoughts are creating your future life. What you think about the most or focus on will appear as your life.”

How are your thoughts? Do you have a habit of focusing more on the negative things in life, wondering why certain obstacles are on your path and just wish for things to be easier? Or do you count your blessings, focus on positivity and attract more success in your life due to positive thoughts and positive habits? Let’s continue to realize that “like attracts like” and therefore follow what Steve Siebold says in his book, The Secrets of the World Class, ”Happiness is learning, growing and becoming.” HOOYAH!
