Henry Ford

On June 4th, 1896, one hundred and twenty-two years ago, Henry Ford drove his first automobile through the streets of Detroit.  It was basically a carriage with no horse powered by gasoline.  It had no brakes and just two speeds, but it was the start of a game-changing journey. Continue reading

George Washington

Two hundred and sixty four years ago, on May 28th, 1754, a 22-year-old lieutenant colonel named George Washington won a battle against the French in Pennsylvania which started the global Seven Years’ War.  When Britain, France and Spain were all fighting over the North American colonies.

Are we where we want to be?

As a new week starts, are we where we want to be?  Doing what we want to be doing?

I was reminded when listening to a speaker last week that we must set daily goals.  Even five small things we want to accomplish.  Maybe reaching out to a handful of people to share our story and ask for input. Continue reading

Joan of Arc

Five hundred and eighty nine years ago today, at age 17, Joan of Arc fought in her first battle for the French against the English at Orleans during the Hundred Years’ War over who would rule France.  The French won that battle which was a big moment in the war and led to France regaining control of their country years later.  Joan went on to fight in more battles for her country and was eventually captured by the English army.

March Madness

I’ve always loved the US college basketball March Madness tournament.  Everything is left on the court and the players’ hearts and souls are on display for all to see.  They are playing for free.  Showing the world what they can do.  Making dreams come true. Continue reading

Set your life on fire

I watched a video clip of actor Will Smith the other day and he shared a powerful message.  He started with a quote from the poet Rumi which was, “Set your life on fire.  Seek those who fan your flames.”

He then asked who are the five people you spend the most time with?  Who are your last five texts from?  Who are the last five people you met for coffee or had a long chat with?   Continue reading

And now there are 12

There were 13 NFL teams that had never won the Super Bowl.  And now there are 12.  The Philadelphia Eagles had been to the big game twice before and lost.  But not last night.  The underdog took the biggest prize. Continue reading

David versus Goliath

When the Jacksonville Jaguars met the New England Patriots yesterday to vie for a spot at the Super Bowl, many pundits said it would be a David versus Goliath scenario.  The Patriots, along with their quarterback Tom Brady, have been at the Super Bowl seven times before this season.  What chance did the Jaguars have?

A published author

Yesterday I was standing in a Grade 10 classroom talking to students about my journey to become a published author.  Sharing my message about grit, resilience, embracing failure, finding your gift and never giving up.   Continue reading

Everything happens for a reason

Everything happens for a reason.  I tried to explain that to my 12-year-old son a few weeks back when he was cut from the hockey team he played on last year.  I told him that sometimes life isn’t fair.  As an adult, you may feel that you are the most qualified for a certain job and then be passed over for a promotion.  But you’ll end up on the path you were meant to be on in the end.
