Thank God It’s Monday!!
Today is your day to make things happen, to make new opportunities, and to make a difference!
It’s not your day to make excuses, so let’s just leave that to someone else, ok?
Champions are made in the off-season. Whether it’s the NBA, March Madness, the NFL or any other sport — it’s the off-season where the champi0nship run begins.
Winning the championship game in season, is simply the result of all the hard work and sacrifice that the team put in long before game day ever came…long before the season ever started.
You see, champions are willing to put in work, knowing the result of that work will not always have an immediate payoff.
Problem or Opportunity
Replace the word ‘problem’ with ‘opportunity’ and see what good things will happen. Obstacles are simply opportunities for growth and growth is never easy-but it’s always worth it.
We all have problems. We all have obstacles in our way that we must figure out how to navigate around. Too many times we give up when we are faced with something negative. Don’t give up! Keep moving forward.
If you cannot fly then run, if you cannot run then walk, if you cannot walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving.
“Faith is taking that first step even when you don’t see the entire staircase.”
It’s the first day of 2018!
Have you set your New Year’s resolutions? I’m a big goal setter so I’ve been taking the last week of 2017 to write down some goals that I want to accomplish in 2018. This is a practice I’ve been doing for many years.
A Winner sees opportunities in every problem.
A Loser sees problems in every opportunity.
A Winner says, “Let’s find a way.”
A Loser says, “There is no way.”
Execution is everything!
Goals are great….dreams are great…..intentions are great. But what really matters is: “Are you are executing?” Are you doing what you want, how you want, to get the results you want?
Too many times in life we are affected by pressure. It may be external pressure, such as pressure from a boss, a client, or a deadline. Or it may be internal pressure that we put on ourselves.
It’s half time! Tomorrow, July 1 marks the half way point of 2017. How are you doing this year? Are you reaching the goals you set back in January? Do you even remember what those goals were? Maybe you’re like a lot of people who started out focused on your goals, but you’ve got so far behind you have forgotten about, and even given up on your goals.
It’s time for a comeback!
In super bowl 51 earlier this year, the Patriots were down 21-3 at halftime against the Atlanta Falcons.
We all find ourselves from time to time in difficult situations that we have no control over. We have a boss or coworker that makes life miserable…or we have a family member that is doing their own thing and hurting you and others…or perhaps you’re in a transition period waiting for the “next thing”.
Life is always presenting us with challenges in everything from finances to relationships to our health.
What do you do when there is nothing you can do?
Everyone loves to win! Whether it’s your favorite sports team, your business, your family, your church, or any other part of life, everyone wants to experience that feeling of success. There’s no question about it, winning is fun, and it makes you feel good, but there are times when losing can actually do you greater good in the long run than a win can. “How’s that?,”…keep reading…

It was an absolute pleasure having Gary speak to my managers. His amazing energy, ideas and insight were exactly what I was hoping for. My staff found Gary’s ideas a great useful tool to add to their work-life balance goals. What a huge success!!
-Jamie Aggers, R.E.H.S Director, Environmental Resources & Parks and Recreation of Stanislaus County
I was quite impressed with Gary’s enthusiasm and message! He engaged all of my employees and their feedback was very positive. He did his research on our organization, which was very meaningful in that he was able to reflect on all the real adversities and successes our team has experienced over the past year. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone considering his services as a motivational speaker.

Sr. Vice President
“We hired Gary as our keynote speaker for our annual Northern California Mothers of Twins convention in April. From our initial contact online, in person meeting to discuss our contract, to the follow up the next day, Gary was very easy to work with. He really took the time to get to know our organization while preparing his keynote address and I have to say he nailed it! I watched the room of twin mom’s shaking their heads in agreement while he was speaking. When he was finished, the room was buzzing with excitement from mom’s feeling inspired as Every Parent is a Coach. He connected with us as a parent and gave meaningful and useful tips for success. The Northern California Mother’s of Twins would encourage you to invite Gary to speak at your event. You will not be disappointed.”
-Kim Mensonides, Director of Northern California Mother’s of Twins Convention
We invited Gary to speak for our annual community-wide youth event that typically draws 150-200 students. Gary came and did a fantastic job! His passion and style of communication connected with our students in a way that captured and held their attention. He came well prepared and incorporated videos and object lessons, kept the students engaged, and was flexible enough to go with the flow during this 3 day event. Gary challenged our students to commitment and action each night and the response was tremendous. Thank you Gary!
