Train Yourself To React The Right Way

By | January 11th, 2017|Life Coaching|0 Comments

I was fortunate in High School to have the wrestling coach I had.  He had earned his spot on the U.S. Olympic Team.  So as you can guess discipline was not a problem for him.  One thing that he taught me was how to react. In my first practice, he told me to get ready in my stance.  Then instructed [...]

Making One Good Decision Can Change Your Life

I remember sitting at my desk in the booking department for a television studio.  I was having an interesting conversation with a gentleman from Australia.  One of his songs had caught the eye of a popular recording artist who made it a hit around the world.  It opened many opportunities for him to travel around the world and sing himself [...]

Look At Me, Look At Me…I’ve Got Nothing

You are a great band.  Your instrumentation is on point. Your lead vocalist is unique and has great delivery.  Image wise everyone in the band looks the part.  You dream of the day when the record executive pulls up to your concert and offers you that contract. Artists that are getting attention are the ones that attract labels, agencies, and [...]

Don’t Tear Down…Build Up!

When my brother and I were young we played together with various building block sets.  Some were metal erector sets.  Others were wooden log cabin building sets or plastic block sets. As the situation is with most brothers we didn’t play well together.  If I saw him building something better than me then it became hard for me to concentrate [...]

Impatience Creates Mental Patients

BEFORE AFTER For many months I woke up every morning and would stare in the mirror with my shirt off.  I was 247 pounds and I wanted to lose this weight...fast.  I looked at all these “Lose your belly fat in a few short weeks” programs.  I did many crunches.  You know what happened? Nothing.  Well, nothing [...]

You Reap What You Sow

By | August 19th, 2016|Life Coaching|0 Comments

Growing up as a preacher’s son I was quite the rebel.  I know that’s pretty stereotypical of preachers kids.  I was consistently into some kind of trouble.  My mother would always quote the same scripture to me. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7 (KJV) She said it [...]

Chasing Pokemon

Someone was talking to me the other day about a guy I know of named Jeff.  Jeff (I've changed his name to protect the guilty) refuses to help around the house.  He is young and in great health so his family does not understand why he can't help. He didn’t have or even want a job.   So why could he not [...]

You’re Better Than This

I was teaching a seminar about overcoming negativity.  When I came to the question and answer part of the program a lady raised her hand. She proceeded to tell me about the obstacles in her life that kept her miserable.  She was not only miserable but the people around her were miserable. I gave her a detailed plan of how [...]

Singers vs Artists

Singers have natural talent. Artists take lessons to develop their natural talent.   Singers love to perform in front of people. Artists know it’s important to engage their audience.   Singers want someone to discover them. Artists strive to build the framework that management and labels want to partner with.   Singers are hoping to meet writers that can give [...]

Praise Teams Learn To Lead More Effectively

By | July 5th, 2016|Life Coaching|0 Comments

You’re standing on stage on Sunday morning.  You strum the first chord of the opening worship song.  You invite the congregation to worship with you.   They enthusiastically join in singing with you.  As you close the song everyone is clapping or raising their hands in praise.  It starts off well. Then as you go further into the set you notice [...]
