“Above all else, protect your heart,” encourages an old Proverb.
How important is that singular phrase? Simply: a matter of life and death.
Do we ever pause to THINK? “No one cares as much about my life as I do.”
Generally, the answer is, “No.” Because, we are beset with the societal propaganda encouraging a Rich and Famous lifestyle. In other words, the focus is on obtaining individual worth from the lives of others.
There’s a name for that: Narcissism.

How important is it for us to find a way to fix Thoughts?
There is a battle raging for our souls and it is life-altering to acknowledge that our thoughts are the only thing within our control.
We cannot change the political climate, celebrity morals, Mother Nature, Father Time — or, even, your neighbor’s yapping dog.
Yet, we can be the Captain of Destiny — as we create a future of our choice.

All We Do Begins With A Thought
Money does not a leadership problem fix.
In fact, a problem is simply an opportunity in disguise.
We grow — when confronted with the impossible. It is that defining moment of decision. Many will quit. A few will do what others say can’t be done.

If you think the World is out to get you, you’ll make that come true.
If you believe in making a dent in the World, that’s what you will achieve.
Same YOU and same World. What’s the difference?
Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.
~ Henry Ford
It all begins with The Want To.
What do “Y-O-U” want?
If you’re ever in need of a conversation starter, just look right into the eyes of another person and ask this question, “What is the passion at the core of everything you do?”

If you have the passion for building something special (Attitude) and you have done the challenging work to define who YOU are (Boundaries), then, the final step to success is YOU must go All In (Commitment).
Success is not going to magically waltz into our lives. It is not a destination, at which to arrive. Daily, we must create success — the unique version each of us has determined to be right — for the benefit of ourselves and the rest of the world.
The reason people join cults and gangs is that they want someone else to provide the answers to Life. In other words, they want to shirk the responsibility of making their own choices — and, of being held accountable for their own decisions and actions.
All I can say is, “Good luck with that.” I’ve seen how those stories end — and, it’s never pretty. There is a better way. We get our Attitude right and we get our Boundaries right. Then, we go All In — by sacrificing all of the other options, for a single choice — with Commitment.

When I hear someone use the word try in a sentence, I cringe. Because I know, for a fact, they are more interested in the talk than they are living the walk.
Accordingly, it’s another humor Kim moment. In support of the above statement, take a pen into your hand. Now, try to drop it. See my point? You’re either going to hang onto it — or, you’re going to drop it.
There’s no “try” to it.
Here’s another example — the word maybe. Those people, who refuse to make a decision, end up high-centering on the fork-in-the-road. Look at the word closer: ma-Y-be. See the fork-in-the-road? The people who are fond of maybe are reluctant to choose — left, or right, at Oak Street.
To encourage us to, always, make a decision, look at ma-Y-be, again.

Imagine your favorite action movie. The ground is crumbling behind our heroes and heroines as they run toward the only escape available to them. Our heart is in our throat, as we encourage them to go, quickly, forward.
Life is like that. There is no standing still. There is no going back. The only direction to safety is forward.

There is only one way to, really, learn anything — and, that is: hands-on.
It is impossible for the mind to forget what the hands have learned.
Why, then, do we believe someone else has the answers to our questions? And, why do we defer our good judgment to others?
