Steve Jobs

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Motivation for everyone to keep pushing on. Never give up and never stop pursuing whatever dream you're having. Push on!

Monday, January 27, 2014


I don't know what that dream is you have. I don't care how disappointing it might have been as you've been working toward that dream. But that dream that you're holding in your mind... it's possible. Some of you already know that it's hard... it's not easy. But in the process of working on your dreams you will grow stronger.

Arthur Berry was described by Time as "the slickest second-story man in the East," truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times. In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million. He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in a tuxedo. On an occasion or two, when caught in the act of a crime by a victim, he charmed his way out of being reported to the police.

Like most people who engage in a life of crime, he was eventually caught, convicted and served 25 years in prison for his crimes. Following his release, he worked as a counterman in a roadside restaurant on the East Coast for $50 a week.

A newspaper reporter found him and interviewed him about his life. After telling about the thrilling episodes of his life he came to the conclusion of the interview saying, "I am not good at morals. But early in my life I was intelligent and clever, and I got along well with people. I think I could have made something of my life, but I didn't. So when you write the story of my life, when you tell people about all the burglaries, don't leave out the biggest one of all... Don't just tell them I robbed Jesse Livermore, the Wall Street baron or the cousin of the king of England. You tell them Arthur Berry robbed Arthur Berry."

Here are six terrific truths about time:

First: Nobody can manage time. But you can manage those things that take up your time.

Second: Time is expensive. As a matter of fact, 80 percent of our day is spent on those things or those people that only bring us two percent of our results.

Third: Time is perishable. It cannot be saved for later use.

Fourth: Time is measurable. Everybody has the same amount of time...pauper or king. It is not how much time you have; it is how much you use.

Fifth: Time is irreplaceable. We never make back time once it is gone.

Sixth: Time is a priority. You have enough time for anything in the world, so long as it ranks high enough among your priorities.

Sports illustrated kid of the year

The 2012 Sports Illustrated Kids SportsKids of the Year, brothers Conner and Cayden Long, were honored at a star-studded event in New York City last night. The Long brothers were part of the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year ceremony that recognized Miami Heat star LeBron James. Celebrities such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski were also in attendance, and everyone there was impressed by Conner's and Cayden's accomplishments.

Cayden, suffers from cerebral palsy, but Conner doesn't let that stop him from playing sports with his brother. The two compete in triathlons together, with Conner towing Cayden behind in a raft during the swimming leg, towing him behind his bike during the cycling portion, and pushing him during the run. Triathlons have been a great way for the brothers to come together and have made them an inspiration to everyone that hears their story.

After hearing their story at the Sportsman ceremony, Coach K said that Conner and Cayden have scholarships to Duke waiting for them when they get older, and LeBron said that the brothers should get ready for the private plane that is going to take them from their home in Tennessee to Miami to "meet the guys." Even Jay-Z and Beyoncé couldn't wait to shake hands with Conner and Cayden.

Real Beauty sketches

An FBI-trained forensic artist worked for the city I lived in...

And he conducted an experiment in which he drew two sets of sketches:

(1) How women see themselves...


(2) How other people described those very same women.

The results were disturbing and touching.

In fact, only 4% of women worldwide are not subjected to the pain that this experiment highlights.

Watch and see why...

A century of Wisdom

Alice Herz-Sommer is the world's oldest survivor of the holocaust at 108 years old! During WWII she survived a Nazi concentration camp in Prague while most of her family was exterminated. She lives to this day, full of joy and laughter because she holds a unique viewpoint on life. Nourish Creative was asked to take raw interview footage of Tony Robbins speaking with Alice in London 2011 and combine it with archival footage to tell her story. Additional clips of Alice playing the piano are added, something she credits as saving her from the war.

No Arms... noi legs

"I was eight years old, and I did want to end my life. I felt hopeless. Broken. Alone. It's like it was pointless. There was no point to my life."

That quote is from Nick Vujicic – a man with no arms and no legs. More importantly than what he doesn't have though, I'm interested in the thing he seems to have that eludes many of us: long term happiness.

With that in mind, let's consider this: If a eight year old boy who wanted to die – because he had no arms and no legs – could find happiness, is it possible that we could as well? If so, what would it take?

I thought long and hard about what I would write to you today. How could I begin to even answer that question? It would take pages, perhaps even a book or series of books. Then I realized... some questions are better answered in a different way. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so what might a video be worth?

So today I have two videos for you that I really want you to take the time to watch. I am sure you will be touched by them, just as I have been. The first is an incredibly inspiring 5-minute video of Nick sharing a bit about his life, as well as showing off a few things he can do. :)

You got to be hungry

This video is a tribute to Les Brown. In my opinion, Les Brown is pretty good motivational speakers. One of my favorite phrases, "No matter how bad it is or how bad it gets, I'm gonna make it!" I doesn't get a better than that. In this video, Les talks about how you have to be hungry and go after an opportunity when you get a break.

Your future

This is GREAT, and this is it--takes practice but it's amazing--you can FEEL how true this is. Last sentence was profound: "I can control [the future] because I can mold the way I feel with far less effort than the action that I've been applying to sort out the rightness and the wrongness of the world and defend my position." BOOM...
