In everyone's life there comes a time to turn. Turn why, you ask? Well if you have lived as long as I have, 50 years, you learn that your quality of life is much more important than your quatity of life. As you grow and develop relationships with others, at one time in your life those relationships are important to your continued growth. But as you age, and my prayer is that you will, you learn that those relationships that at one time seemed to be beneficial to your very existence, are NO LONGER NEEDED.
When I decided to move from my hometown and live in a totally different city and state and time zone, I knew that there were some people I was saying goodbye to, for the last time. I knew there were people who while essential to my projects and my overall well being, no longer had a place in my life. I knew this and with a sadness, accepted it.

After each new year begins, many of us are motivated to do better. We want to lose weight and we want to get that promotion and we want to start that business. We want to be better spouses and better moms and dads...better friends. But do we have what it takes to make motivation work? What do I mean by that? Is your motivation mobile.

We live in a mobile society where we carry mobile phones and each app we use has a mobile part to it and we are so on the move, everything we do and touch has to be mobile. But are you...mobile. Are you motivated enough to move that motivation to lose weight? Are you motivated enough to make the necessary changes on your job so that you will be up for that promotion? Are you motivated enough to make changes in your relationships that will make it better because YOU are better. IS YOUR MOTIVATION MOBILE...IS IT MOVING ALONG WITH YOU? The answer to that question for most of us is no.
