Identity theft

In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People author Stephen R. Covey says, “The greatest identity theft is not when someone takes your wallet or steals your credit card.  The greater theft happens when we forget who we really are, when we begin to believe that our worth and identity come from how well we stack up compared to others, instead of recognizing that each of us has immeasurable worth and potential, independent of any comparison.” Continue reading

An incredible story

I was speaking with a music teacher who I met last week and she told me an incredible story.  She’s been teaching a certain instrument to children for decades.  A few years back, two different seven-year-olds started lessons around the same time.  One of them was gifted.  She picked up everything immediately.  She had the rhythm, grasped the melodies and never had to practice.  The other one was the most challenged student she had ever seen.  She couldn’t pick up the songs, she had no rhythm, and she struggled to play.  But she practiced every day and she loved coming to class to learn more.  Numerous times over the years the teacher thought of mentioning to her parents that maybe this instrument wasn’t for her.  Maybe she should try something else.  But she always held back as the girl seemed to enjoy the process so much.

The Magic of Thinking Big

I am currently reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.  In it he writes, “Your mind is a ‘thought factory.’   It’s a busy factory, producing countless thoughts in one day.”  He said that you make deposits in your thought bank constantly and these thoughts decide what your day will be like and if you will be successful.

Bohemian Rhapsody

I recently saw the movie Bohemian Rhapsody and it was so inspirational.  Talk about following your heart, finding your gift and never giving up.  I always knew of the band Queen and Freddy Mercury, but when I look at their list of hits it’s mind boggling.

Another One Bites The Dust.  Crazy Little Thing Called Love.  Somebody To Love.  We Will Rock You.  We Are The Champions.  And of course, Bohemian Rhapsody.   Continue reading
