A beautiful flight!

A beautiful view of Anchorage as I flew in to speak to the Association of Legal  Administrators on "Preparing Tomorrows Leaders.".


Principle 9: Providence


"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results." - Ken Blanchard
Vision, goals, choice and commitment - these are the ultimate diamonds of the mind. When you discover them within and learn how to cut and polish them, they will bring you acres and acres of diamonds.

Principle 13: Enthusiasm

If enthusiasm isn't the dominant emotion rising from your heart every morning, there are ways you can change. Make a deliberate decision to turn away from the negative thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors that rob you of a continuous expectation for good in your life. 

Principle 8:Optimism

A person becomes what he thinks about; therefore, we can change who we are and what we accomplish in life by changing what we think about.

Principle 10: Intensity

You'll often hear it said that the people who are the "best" at something are not always the most successful; ability isn't much without discipline, drive, and follow-through. The real winners in life are not those with the most talent, the highest education, or the greatest opportunities. They are those who are propelled into dynamic, exciting experiences as a result of a driving desire and unending pursuit of their dreams.


New Opportunities

Each fulfilled goal adds a new thread into the fabric of your self-confidence and increases your ability to respond favorably to new opportunities.

Principle 8: Intention

Until you are undone by the revelation of the infinite potential that resides within you, you cannot possibly put in the hard work necessary to do something beyond what you previously thought possible.  Either you will be content maintaining your present circumstances, or, at best, you will be satisfied with just a little more.  You must fully comprehend your latent potential to be able to take the steps to change your life.

Principle 14: Persistence

"When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, until it seems that you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn."  - Harriet Beecher Stowe

Principle 4: Possibilities

To develop the Principle of Possibilities, regularly put yourself into challenging or stretching situations to accelerate your learning.

Principle 16: Friendship

Friendship is not so much about finding people who will like and support you; instead, it is a treasure that empowers you to like and support them. Dale Carnegie said, "You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." In order to have friends, then, you must be a friend worth having.
