How to NOT fall off the curb

Posted by Jason On April 5th

As you know from reading my blog, when I read a great story, or something I feel rings true or  just makes good sense,  I like to re-post it on my blog.

A good friend of mine Curt shares his perspective on fear and what he did to overcome it.

Do you remember when you were a little kid, riding your bike all over town? I sure do.

I remember when my bicycle was my key to freedom. I used it to escape the constant hostage of Saturday chores. In fact, sometimes I finished my homework before the sun went down I would sometimes just ride around until I couldn’t see the street anymore because of how dark it was.

Small Business Tip – Where is the finish line?

Posted by Jason On February 1st

Imagine this: Your finger tips are on the white line, you’re hunched over with your weight just over your elbows and your back foot is firmly braced against the brick block to insure a quick start off jump. The anticipation is eating away at you, you keep saying to yourself “Be patient, be patient and don’t jump the gun” then you hear it Bang!!!

The gun fires suddenly and now you’re off and running fast, amazingly it’s the perfect start! You come around the first turn and you have a three person lead. “This is it” Read the rest of this entry »

“Goals” Do Have One?

Posted by Jason On January 5th

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” ~Michelangelo~

The biggest obstacle to overcome are the ones we never challenge ourselves to do. Life can become stagnant if we do not push ourselves to try new things. Setting goals and working toward them is the achievement, even if the outcome is not exactly what you expected.

To set a goal, first, you need to figure out what will make you happy. Being happy is the benefit of working hard toward a goal. Next, you need to write it down & let others know.


Having support from others will keep you accountable on your journey and make the success of achievement even greater. Writing down your goals and reading them often will also keep you on track. Last, work hard! Everyone has days where we fall behind or lose focus. These set backs are necessary to the process. Achievements are not easy, if they were, we would lose the greatest feeling of earning the goal.

Start today, write down your goals. You can start with daily goals and work on bigger goals like 10 year & lifetime goals. Stress Release Reminders custom journal is a wonderful tool for daily goals. The easy insert style of daily goals, daily affirmations, & a few highlights of the day can help you focus on the path of success. Also, visit Stress Release Reminders Facebook wall page under discussions. You can add your goal to the discussion board. This will keep you accountable, along your journey, & allow you to help others succeed.

Goal Facts:

  1. Specific, realistic goals work best
  2. It takes time for a change to become an established habit
  3. Repeating a goal makes it stick
  4. Pleasing other people doesn’t work
  5. Roadblocks don’t mean failure

What Do You Want To Be Remembered For?

Posted by Jason On November 22nd

You must have long term goals to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures. ~Charles C. Noble~

Purpose– The object toward which one strives or for which something exists.

I hope you enjoy this week’s blog post on “What do you want to be remembered for?”  I cannot take credit for this post; I contacted the author directly and asked if I could re-post this great message…. Thank you Kelly for your great insight 🙂

Have you ever asked yourself; how do I want to be remembered? What do I want to be remembered for? What can I do daily, weekly, yearly to achieve my ultimate goal?

Goal setting and working toward your ultimate desire is easy to forget. Stress can cloud our decisions and make us live a life with no purpose. It is important to take time out, many times a day to focus on your goals. Read the rest of this entry »

Have you ever had one of “those days”? You know, those dreaded awful days that seem to creep up on you when you least expect them. I’m talking about that day you woke up to a flat tire and didn’t have a spare. How about the day you spilled coffee on your new shirt right as you were walking out the door? how about the day when you decided to be nice and let someone merge into traffic and not only do they not give you the courteous wave back but the person behind them decides to cut you off and sneak in right behind them.

So how can we counter act some of this negative stuff that seems to randomly rain on us in our daily life? Read the rest of this entry »
