“Conquering Cat-sized Squirrels and the EGO!” #131

Winning the battle in the backyard is not so dissimilar from winning the one within!

The creature initiates its taunt with a leap off the ground that could out-rival the height of a third grader’s smile.

It latches its tiny arms around the 6-foot iron-rod with the ferocity of a concerned mother, then begins to scale.

Its approach to humanity and gravity is one of defiance, as it navigates upward with the agility of nature’s first Ninja Warrior. 

Finally, while upside down, the squirrel finishes its feast out of the “squirrel-proof” bird-feeder. Then struts toward the coy pond with its tail in the air and, without breaking eye contact, begins quenching its thirst while gnawing away at my ego.

Winning the battle in your own backyard is not so dissimilar from conquering the battle within!

Time to tackle the Ego!

…a REAL human nature story.

The Unenviable Life of Washing Machines, and Materialism

The Unenviable Life of Washing Machines and Materialism 2018-10-14 at 10.48.10 AM.png

Materialism is a disease that has infested society since the dawn of time… It is important we work to recognize how it shapes the lives of ourselves and our loved ones.

It is also important to pay homage to your appliances which work ever so hard for you as the unsung heroes behind the scenes in your daily grind.

Have you considered the Unenviable Life of Washing Machines, and Materialism?

If you have, you probably should have done this podcast first…

If not… let’s consider the mystical and magnificent roles that both have in our day to day lives together!

 

 

 

Measure of Goodness

For GOODNESS sake!

The GREATEST Gift you can Give to Humanity?

“The GREATEST gift you can give to humanity?
Conquer your own Demons…
…so you do not pass them down to the next generation”

Want to improve the world?  Improve yourself… the rest will follow.

Lord, help me to be great

Saying this prayer, OUT LOUD, (most) every night, is the single most important contributor to making me a (somewhat) better person than I used to be.

Lord, help me to be great -- or at least better.

 

Lord, help me to be:
Courageous, Selfless, Loving,
Patient, Peaceful, Humble,
Hard working and Forgiving.

Help me to be a great husband,
a great father, and a great human being.

And help me to always remember.

 

PERSONAL TIP:
Every small epiphany I have in life, I ‘assign’ to this prayer… Every time I say I’ll pray for someone, I assign it to “always remember”…. So every time I say it, in my heart, those folks share a piece of my prayer…

I also wear, thanks to my wife, a necklace with the word “REMEMBER” on it — so I remember to never forget ;).

Fix-it Tips: No time to Regret

what would you do if today was the last of your life? what would you do different if given more time?What regrets would you have if today was the last day of your life?

What would you do different if, instead, you were given more time?

 

Are you Complaining, Waiting, or Changing?

While you're busy complaining that others don't change; they're busy waiting for you to do the same!

“While you’re busy complaining…
…that others don’t change;
They’re busy waiting…
…for you to do the same.”

The Tallest Tree had a Striking Ego

The Tallest Tree once looked down upon the ones smaller than he, then got struck by lightning!

Reflection:

Appreciate all that you have;
Be humble for all that you are.
Learn for yourself, not for the class;
And only strive to raise your own bar.

For all that you were & are just now;
Will inevitably, like all things, be struck down.

Ego is the useless residue left behind with all else removed.

Reflecting on your Life

One-liner quote: EVERYTHING you experience in life is a reflection of YOU!

is a perfect reflection of you!”

ARE YOU IMPRISONED BY TIME?

Are you a prisoner of time? Free yourself.

We awake to a new day. There are new experiences to be had and new choices to make. It may sound liberating at first. Yet, we begin each morning by believing everything we’ve been trained to see; and there are no better slaves than the ones who are convinced they are free.
