Surrounded by Winners

We all have the desire to develop, but we accelerate when we surround ourselves with people who are more talented than we are. This weekend I was golfing at a fundraiser. We were on a par 3. Between the green and us was water. The first man in our foursome landed on the green, and ...Continue Reading...

Internally saying no or wait!

This weekend I stopped past the annual ski sale in our town. I picked up a great deal on two used sets of skis and boots… $115. Plus grabbed a pair of Oakley Goggles for $10. My wife and I are snowboarders but have been teaching our 3 year old to ski.   I knew ...Continue Reading...

Leader and the Glove / Phillies

Just like a banker’s future is not insured from his past financial record. Goliath had a great track record and lost to an ...Continue Reading...

Quitter!

Regardless if you are in the “sweet spot” of your talent or not, you will be faced with obstacles that will challenge you. There are only three outcomes that can happen when an obstacle surfaces: You decide it is too hard. You try and then quit. You work through the problems and complete it. I ...Continue Reading...

Be careful who you follow!

People who change history, come out of a stock crash successful, or win a market, are those who do not follow the majority. These are actually the ones who walk through a forceful crowd in the opposite direction. The crowd eventually catches on and turns and follows. Which is the signal to the leader to ...Continue Reading...
