Studies show that you become who you hang out with. Wouldn’t it make sense to hang out with people who have the same standards, morals, and values that you do?
Look around you. Are you hanging out with who you want to be?
Do you want to be a drug dealer, addict, or alcoholic?
Maybe you like being around “Doug and Wendy Whiner.”
Do your peers shirk their work? Is that how you want to be known?
Look around you. Are you hanging out with who you want to be?

It’s November 1st.
For many of us (especially the children) it’s stomach ache day.
I remember sorting through our kids’ candy when they came home from trick-or-treating, to pull out anything that was open, or we considered unsafe. I also remember going through it, after they were asleep, to pull out the candy we wanted – teehee.
Now that our children are grown, and out of the house, we still buy candy for the kids that trick-or-treat. I never know how much to buy, and…Read More

I am seeing a lot of posts about “being aware of veterans around you during the 4th of July.”
I agree that if you are aware of a veteran with PTSD in your vicinity, you should NOT aggravate them by shooting off illegal fireworks. Well, you shouldn’t be using illegal fireworks anyway!
However, the reality is that only 1% of people in the U.S. are in the military. The country is not going to stop fireworks displays for 1%. Nor should they. Independence Day is a BIG day for our…Read More

Love it, Hate it! Now what about those poses that we all “love to hate?” I can always remember Cindy’s (our studio owner) least liked pose and how far she’s come with the benefits it’s provided her.

In a coaching relationship we call the negative voices that haunt, defeat and hold us back from our dreams, the Saboteur or Gremlin.…Read More
