Sometimes it’s just about success…

by Mike Phillips

I’m sure you have heard the saying that if you fail enough times you may find success. Certainly, there are blogs, books, and training courses on this subject.

by Mike Phillips

To me, this means take action, be a change agent. I was on Facebook the other day and read this statement. “Change the world by your example, not your opinion.” To me, this is a profound statement.

by Mike Phillips

Its that time of year again… NEW YEARS DAY! Whoopee! It’s the time that (most) everyone decides to make their yearly commitments and resolutions to do better…  workout more, work harder, be more awesome, be a better husband, father or family member, and so on. I have a question for you on  this New Years […]

Get Your Ball Rolling! Finding More Motivation!

by Mike Phillips

Motivation isn’t magic; though it does sometimes just appear – motivation is need (or want). Motivation is a general willingness to do something, anything. When you NEED or WANT something badly enough, your brain kicks into gear and finds a way to work it out and get it. I know we’ve all been there, I […]
