West Orange Times

What motivates and inspires people to take action?  Words, and phrases.

Here a few from last Thursday’s West Orange Times.  Our small town newspaper is mailed once each week.  There was a center page section full (13 total) of ads.

  • Building Life-Changing Christian Relationships (Church)
  • WELLTRAX (Wellness Center)
  • Reinvent Yourself! (Education)
  • your next level (advertising)
  • Elevate Your Image (advertising)
  • Strengthen Your Brand (advertising)

Phrases and words have some sort of magical power to travel to the part of our brain that says, “You can do better.”

With New Year’s Eve six weeks away, people begin asking, “What can I do better?”

What is one of the craziest , or perhaps high impact New Year’s Resolutions you’ve ever made?

Bring It On

Today.  This morning.  Right now.  Bring it on.

What does that mean? Who am I talking to?

First and foremost, I’m talking to myself.  Journaling is a world-class way to self-awareness.

Self-awareness is the most important step towards self-improvement.

My (life) pace does not lend itself to either.

Which is why I write five blogs every day.

What was once impossible, is now business as usual.
