During a stop in Nashville, I had the opportunity to spend time with some very nice people.

I liked them even more after I asked a very simple question.

After watching a Bar Rescue marathon on Sunday, and hearing people complain (on the show and in the aftermath of Yelp reviews) about the results...I came to the conclusion that we all need to exercise a bit more Personal responsibility (with a tip of the hat to Larry Winget who champions this approach).

What are YOU achieving these days? Who inspired it?

In what ways are you failing? Whose fault is it?

Procrastination can make you a little crazy (every 90 seconds or so, in my case).

When will we DO SOMETHING about the 'little things' in our lives that need attention??
When we're tired of waiting...or when the noises drive us up the wall!

What does it sound like when you spend your life making your dream happen, appreciating every victory and took to get there, while remaining humble every step of the way? If you put it to country music, it sounds like the journey of Kayla Sarro...who recently got to live her dream on-stage with her hero!

I have always believed the 2 greatest things about my journey as a speaker and acts of kindness fan:

1) the people I meet

2) the person I am becoming

Among these amazing people are the teens of the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership program.

That is where I met Courtney several years ago, when she was in the audience.

I am so proud of this young lady. She's going places...and they are all great!

A trip to my accountant's office to have my taxes done made me smile...but not for the reason you may be thinking.

Today I realized a life lesson that's been staring me in the face for years.

The Season 5 finale of 'The Walking Dead' woke me up again at 2:30am...not because I was afraid of zombies (okay, maybe a little) but because of the life/business lessons the show inspired me to share.

I run across so many people who say they want to give...but aren't sure how, or what.

Simple challenge which can be cured by listening. We share ideas and ways to take action, all in a little over 2 minutes.

You can have your dreams, but they won't happen until you get off the bench and take your shot.

High school senior Chris Hodges did...and the crowd went wild!
