Kids today don't know how to play - The Chase Challenge

Kids today don

I like to be outside. I like to be active. The most vivid memories I have of my childhood involve being outside with my family. Ponies and horses were very common at my place since my mother was a riding instructor. Holiday picnics and birthday parties were often held at our place. We had 3 acres.

Personal Growth is a Planned Event

Personal Growth is a Planned Event

Sometimes age comes alone.

It is an old adage, but it isn't cliche`. In fact those four words need to be analyzed and studied.

That statement is the rebuttal following "wisdom comes with age". Forgive, actually dwell on, the following phrases as they are extremely powerful when realized. Wisdom comes from experience and experience comes from making mistakes. When that is added the realization the OFTEN age comes alone sinks in. While we as humans are making mistakes all the time, many don't make them in the areas needed for growth and success, both personally and professionally. Several other blog posts can be dedicated to defining success. For now just use the picture of it you have in your head, the following should still help you achieve it.
