From my book series, Beyond Your Potential:
A lot of highly successful people have a continual thirst for knowledge and are always asking questions such as those above. These successful people first think and ask the questions that will provide answers to advance. These people know that it is the people who ask the better questions who get a better life.
Remember, it is often the people who ask the most and the best questions who succeed.
When you start to answer these questions you will produce great energy within your life. Zealous people usually have a lot of energy to pursue what they do.
Passionate people are doing what they love and loving what they do.
We’ve all known people who do not resonate with this passion. A lackluster life at best is how they live. They do just enough to get by and meander through the time they have on earth. This book will teach you how to find this passion, apply it to your own life, and achieve the excellence that you desire.March 26, 2014
Look at your life, see the past, see the now, see your future, and see your passions:
- What are you truly passionate about?
- What do you really care about?
- Who do you hold in high esteem?
- When?–have you started yet?
- What are you living for?
- What would you die for?
- What is most important to you?
Have you ever asked yourself these questions? The questions are important issues that each of us should meditate on and keep in the backs of our minds. Each of us must take the time to examine our own life, posing these questions to ourselves.
Many successful people have answered these questions and have taken time for self reflection.

On the morning of February 13 I called the hospital where my mom was staying. When I asked how my mom was doing the person at the nurses station simply told me, “Didn’t you hear, your mom died at 2:24 in the morning?” What shocking news. My mom was not doing very well, but had plans for when she got out of the hospital. Knowing this fact made it extra hard.
For a couple weeks she had been in the hospital, things were not looking good. Before knowing she would not make it, I had booked a flight to go out to be with her, yet it did not leave for a five days after she had passed away. My sister was already there, she was with mom when she died. She wanted to take care of everything and did not allow me to help. So, not seeing a reason to stay, I drove my mom’s car from San Diego to the Philadelphia area, where I am currently living.
Death is something that will happen to each of use–yet it is so surprising and hard. The first book in the series I am writing, Accident, I have a chapter on death and how to deal with the painful change.
In her life, my mom used her mind well, very sharp she was. This was acquired by reading and being so full of knowledge of so many areas. She often surprised me with her knowledge.
So, my sister cleared out the apartment which she occupied for over 30 years. Her phone was disengaged, a number she had for at least 40 years. So, being nothing there, I deleted my mom’s contact info from my address book. So hard to do, but the memories will always be there, at least until I die.March 11, 2014
Whom do you talk to most in your life? No, not your family, not your friends, not your doctor, not even your dog—BUT YOU—watch your language! Th e words you say internally are the most important words you should ever hear. I play like a kid much of the time when I am talking to myself internally, it helps so much in my life. You can turn down the destructive language of your self-talk and turn up the second voice that can be funny, sexy. Make this into a voice that you enjoy listening to. You have that control. Stop being so serious about yourself with your self-talk. Th e most powerful words of your life are the words that you tell yourself.February 3, 2014
