What do you tell yourself at the end of the day when you look in the mirror? Today I would like to share the poem, “The Guy in the Glass” by Dale Wimbrow. This poem is a wonderful reminder that no matter what we accomplish during the day, we will have to answer to one person before going to bed. Fame and praise from others are nice but at the end of the day we look at ourselves in the mirror and we know what type of person we have really been. Did we step on others in order to get our way? Did we cut corners, lie, or cheat to make a dollar? Did we ignore the needs of others in our search for riches?…Read More »

It’s Monday again! Let’s start the week off right with this poem from an unknown author about the game of life. This poem in particular talks about daring greatly and doing more than just talking, we have to start doing.
Remember to write down your goals for this week today. It is amazing how much more you can get done with written goals! Make your game plan and then get in the game!
Playing The Game
Life is a game with a glorious prize,
If we can only play it right.
It is give and take, build and break,
And often it ends in a fight;
But he surely wins who honestly tries
(Regardless of wealth or fame),
He can never despair who plays it fair
How are you playing the game?…

Monday is my favorite day. It is the start of a new week and you get to make it whatever you want. You’ve had time over the weekend to relax and digest what you did the previous week and then decide how you can improve the next one. It is like New Year’s Day that comes every week.
Many people hate Mondays because they have to head back to work after a fun weekend. I don’t blame them. But to try and help, I decided to start a series of posts called “Motivation Mondays.” Every Monday I will post a motivational poem or quote from some of my favorite authors in history, hoping that it will help give someone out there a little boost of motivation for the day.…Read More »
