Are You Sitting on the Fence or on Your Butt?

There is a difference between the two, but the outcome is the same! Sooner or later you’re going to fall off the side, and you need to be prepared for which side you hit. Dante said, “The vestibule of Hell … Continue reading

Perseverance and Possibilities

Children are truly fascinating. They are the quintessential representation of a flexible mind. They believe in possibilities. Have you noticed that a child when presented with evidence that contradicts their current thinking– will change their mind? And even when presented with the most outlandish, seemingly impossible idea, they will be open to the possibility. Children haven’t created any walls in their minds that block out the possibilities. They don’t know what limits are. Therefore they live without limits. Continue reading
