Maybe some holiday is coming up that sparks your desire. A New Year’s resolution? Wanting to get in better shape before that summer vacation?

Do you (or someone you know) carry your cell phone charger with you wherever you go? Do you plug it in while in a public place (bar, restaurant, etc.) to ensure you don’t lose battery life before you return home? Do you get upset when the internet is going slower than usual or goes out completely? Do you get annoyed at sporting events, concerts, and other large gatherings because it is impossible to get a signal? Do you text and drive? Do you text and drive despite people asking you not to? Despite near-accidents? Do you continue to bury your...

Why Consistent Action is Vital for Long-Term Success

Posted by on Feb 19, 2014 in Blogs, Motivation, Personal Change, Success | 0 comments

While being flashy may get you noticed, being consistent is what establishes and maintains your reputation. Whether your focus is a business relationship, a friendship, a romantic relationship, or your work ethic, consistency reigns supreme over a one-hit wonder. I used to attend a number of different summer camps when I was younger. I attended one of them, a basketball camp held at a local high school, for many years in a row.

Posted by on Feb 16, 2014 in Blogs, Emotions, How To, Motivation, Personal Change, Success | 0 comments

Sports have taught me so many valuable lessons in my life. From teamwork to hard work, to how to appropriately experience successes and failures, I don’t know where I would be without the values instilled in me through athletic competition. I am proud to say that, for the last two years, I have served as the head coach of a high school girls softball team and have tried instill as many of those values in my team members as I can. One of the hardest things to do, I’ve learned, is to teach someone how to pick herself up after a failure and try...

Achieving Personal Success is as Easy as 3…2…1…Green!

Posted by on Feb 10, 2014 in Blogs, Motivation, Personal Change, Success | 0 comments

It was not until I got to high school that things like the internet and cell phones started to become popular, and the popularity then pales in comparison to now. This means that, for the majority of my childhood, my parents had to entertain me the old-fashioned way. You know, we actually talked to one another. Car rides are always particularly challenging for children to remain patient. When I was young, maybe 4, 5, or 6 years old, my father would frequently play the same game with me. I don’t know that we ever named it, but I look back on...

First Blog Post

Growing up, I had two of the most supportive parents anyone could have asked for. Thinking back on it, I can’t possibly count the number of times that I received messages from them such as “You’re so smart,” “You can accomplish anything you put your mind to,” and most importantly, “We’re so proud of you.” I look back on that support that I received from my family and friends as I pursued various educational, athletic, and other personal and professional development journeys and know that those who love me played such an integral part in my...
