Reflection Is Rewarding

I make it my practice daily to “Reflect” about my day, my blessings, my experiences and my wealth, not only financially but especially my body, heart and soul. J.C.Maxwell says, “Reflection turns experience into insight.” Each experience we have, be it positive or negative, can be turned into a lesson. I try to have a Read more about Reflection Is Rewarding[…]

Is Fear Negative or Positive?

The Oxford dictionary states that “Fear” is panic or distress caused by exposure to danger, expectation of pain, etc. So, our mind is hardwired to protect us from danger.

Is Vulnerability Okay?

The dictionary definition of “Vulnerability” is the quality or state of being exposed to the possibility of being attacked or harmed, either physically or emotionally.

It’s Your Choice

Today, the word that seems to pop up everywhere I look, is “Choice.” Over the years, I have enjoyed teaching Choice Theory, created by William Glasser.

Check Your Beliefs And Habits

John Asaraf says, “Whatever you believe is truth for us but it is not THE TRUTH.” You learn what to believe from others in your life.

Kindness Is Miraculous

Maxwell’s word of the day is “Kindness.” We teach our children and students to be “Kind to others.” We use the word, “Respect,” but that is an adult word. I believe the best way to teach “Kindness” is to model it and live it genuinely. Whenever you ask anyone how they want to be treated, Read more about Kindness Is Miraculous[…]

I believe our lives must be “Unlimited” in our passion for making the world a little better each day. We must be “Off the charts” in our attempt to bring peace to those who struggle.

Enthusiasm is Contagious

When I think of the word “Enthusiasm,” I think of passion, excitement about life, being enthusiastically mindful of the moment. I have felt “Enthusiasm” for education for most of my adult life.

Are You Afraid of Change?

This morning in “A Minute With Maxwell,” the word was “Change.” As I pondered about how I feel about change, I thought that yes, possibly momentarily, I would cringe when someone tells me to change. However, I’m a big picture thinker so I would ask some questions about “WHY” change. If I am convinced that Read more about Are You Afraid of Change?[…]
