To cast dispersion on your valiant effort, a favorite expression of the naysayers is, “Yeah, well every light casts a shadow.” As if YOU living in the light somehow takes away from their enjoyment of the darkness.
A shadow is caused by an obstruction to light. Remove the obstruction and no more shadow. Yet, rather than be a shiner, the naysayer prefers to be a whiner — from the comfortable and darkened recesses of their mind.
Refusing to light a candle, they curse the darkness. Even when others open the door to a better way, they turn away. When encouraged into the brightness of a new path, they angrily respond in wrath. Why?

Are you a beacon of hope?
If so, thank YOU!
Because, many individuals are reflections of misery. Their focus is inward, rather than outward. So, in the simplest of words, we can capture the essence of these two categories of society in this way: Mirrors or Beacons.
If the focus is inward, people love mirrors — because their image is cast back to them. When driving, the rear-view mirror receives full attention. In thought patterns, ruminations of the past are a favorite activity.
If the focus is outward, you love beacons — because light is cast forward into the Universe. When driving, the windshield provides unlimited possibilities. In thought patterns, dreams are a glimpse into the future.

Every decision we make involves the dimensions of Time and Money. Furthermore, for every decision, we have a choice to Spend or Invest.
Right about now, the contrarians among us are busily thinking of an example that doesn’t involve both Time and Money.
While I wait for them to exhaust the possibilities, I’ll continue with the thoughts about — and facets of — Time and Money. Because, after all — and between the two — Time is the most precious.

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
Success – Happiness – and, Love
What do these three concepts — Success, Happiness, and Love — have in common?
Yes, I agree — we want all three.
They can’t be bought with money, they can’t be chased down, they won’t magically waltz into our lives — and, if found, they can’t be captured and bound.
Yet, what is the most important facet of these three gems?

If you wonder why you feel tired, it’s because you are. Day after day we fight enemies near and far. The greatest threat to our peace and freedom is our own government.
I’ve heard the expression, “We get the government we deserve.”
That is simply wrong. After paying 40% on our earnings, each year, in Federal and Montana income taxes, for the ‘greater good’ of Society, I don’t deserve to be used and abused — and, neither do you. We are guilty in one aspect, only, “We get what we allow.”

We are well past the Point of No Return and headed into uncharted territory. Literally, all of the graphs and maps of the past are of little value as we navigate into this new frontier of uncertainty and opportunity.
Beyond the time for leaders — this is a time for Inspirators.
Inspirators provide a breath of fresh air while inspiring the next bold Step, forward, to Success.
Each Day We Have A Choice
