The life you always wanted to live.

Mental Fitness Challenge

This weekend in Columbus Team and Life launched the ground breaking Mental Fitness Challenge to help you live the life you’ve always wanted to live though principles called resolutions. These resolutions are written in detail in Orrin Woodward’s new book called 13 Resolutions for Life in which he has studied 3 very important people in history, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin & Jonathan Edwards. What he found is that the accomplishments these gentleman had were the results of resolutions applied over their lifetime. Just think about it, what would we have today if Benjamin Franklin didn’t resolve to change and come up with his 13 virtue’s? For sure there would be no USA. I don’t want to go in to all the detail here but I am starting the challenge this week and I highly suggest you do the same, I am looking for partners that I can be accountable to and get feed back from that are going to join me on the journey of living the life they’ve always wanted. So lets go! I can help ya do it. Check this video out!

During the next 13 weeks I will be reading the 3 books and listening to the audios in the pack and working with other people who are already committed to doing this with me so they can get their life that they always wanted to live so each week at least once I will be updating you on the books chapters and things I did that week.

See you all in the challenge!

The Charles Schulz Philosophy

Posted by Brandon Dillon on April 3, 2012

This was Great so I thought I would pass it along, how did you do? How did you answer?

The  following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the  creator of the ‘Peanuts’ comic strip.

You don’t have to actually answer the questions. Just ponder on them.

Just read the e-mail straight through, and you’ll get the point.

1. Name  the five wealthiest people in the  world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.

4  Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name  the last decade’s worth of World Series winners.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday.

These are no second-rate achievers.

They are the best in their fields.

But the applause dies..

Awards tarnish..

Achievements are forgotten.

Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson:

The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the

most credentials, the most money…or the most awards.

They simply are the ones who care the most

Charles Schulz
