  • Are we like the monkey?

    A few weeks ago I was working with a local business here in Colorado Springs. My dealings with them in the past have been very pleasant and equally beneficial to us both. They provide me with a service and/or product, and I provide with money for that task. In other words, we were conducting business. During our course of business myself and an employee of this business, whom I have had pleasant interactions with in the past, had a disagreement. When he was explaining to me why he was unable to supply to me what appeared to be a simple request, his voice began to become louder. Raising your voice does not make your point clearer, it only makes your point, which now appears to ....

  • Loss of Motivation

    Loss of Motivation. We sometime use other verbiage like “I just don’t want to do it anymore.” "I'm bored" or "I don't wanna go." Why does loss of motivation occur? Some reasons for loss of motivation are. 1. Not staying consistent 2. Not revising your goals 3. Not changing or increasing your intensity Parents, you may have come across a child who has decided that he/she just doesn’t want to do something anymore. If you look deeply enough you may find the reason the child does not want to continue something positive is because they have not been attending the activity regularly.

  • Words of Wisdom

    To feel value some need for others to GIVE them their value. The vacancy of self worth cannot be filled by the acknowledgement of anyone else other than SELF. To seek your worth in the approval of another is to remain personally bankrupt. Your value is within you, your worth is what you dictate it to be. A man standing alone...IS STILL A MAN. Quitting is a learned behavior
    And a supported habit.
    Don’t be the teacher or the enabler.
    A public school teacher complained to her co workers about all of her students failing. The next year she taught a different grade. They too failed. When everyone around you are performing badly it is time for you to stop seeing them as ....

  • Never are you to blame

    *Note: To grow we must take a look at ourselves to determine what we can do better. The truth does not have to hurt, instead it can propel us forward to living a better life. Lift up your head keep moving on, What happened is not your fault. You hurt others and stole from them Now you can’t believe that you got caught. You justify your actions by saying you only stole that what you need. While others obtain what they have by working hard, sweat, and bleed. You drink in the club then choose to drive Your journey is not too far Your choice leaves a young mother no longer alive And you justify now where you are. It is not my fault someone is dead The bar let me ....

  • You can't please them all

    Tommy loves Colorado Springs. Although being young and only in middle school, he appreciates the beauty that he see's each day when he wakes up.

  • It's Time

    "It's time to say goodbye" the older man said to the children standing around him. This was the time in which they all knew was coming, but still could never truly prepare for. "Help me up son" he said to the athletically built man standing beside him. The strong shoulders of his son were now rounded, his square jaw trembling, and tears pooling in his eyes. Once known for his strength, at this time that strength had escaped him. As he reached down to pickup his father he began to remember times of his childhood. This now frail man close to his 90s appears so small in comparison to his memories. He remembered when his father would pick him up and swing him around. He remembered ....
