Nice guys DO NOT finish last

Read more. Gratitude goes a long, long way in the nice equation. You can be satisfied anywhere along the path of life. It doesn't mean that you are complacent. It means that you are grateful for where you are ... AND you are pursuing more/better/different. More money, better relationships, different business ... always striving to improve and move forward. That's nice.

Nice guys do not finish last. 

Actually, nice guys finish first with a ton of cheerleaders celebrating with you. Nice gets it done. Nice moves you forward with gusto. Nice keeps you in a place of integrity with yourself. Nice enrolls people to help you accomplish your goals. Nice keeps you moving in the direction of your purpose. Nice smooths the path for you. Greases the wheel. Levels the playing field. Keeps you smiling.

Nice is a four letter word to some people. There is a nasty rumor that nice is just another word for doormat. Nice in no way means that you are leaving yourself open to being used or abused ~ it i…

Read more. The characteristic mark of substantial change is that the object undergoing the change does not survive that change or persist through it, but is destroyed in the process.  – Aristotle
What is our never-ending focus on working hard to achieve the "good life" getting us? America, once the healthiest nation on earth, now ranks 27th - below all European nations and many third world countries.  In her book, Transcending the I, Carol Grojean invites us to join her profound journey into her experience of self as she "woke up" from her way of living through external, socialized definition.

"I pretend that getting up every morning and getting ready for work…

Those S and ES Endings by Mary Deal

John Joneses car stalled. John Jones car stalled. John Jones’s car stalled.
That Jones’s girl. That Joneses girl. That Jones girl.

The Joneses came for dinner. John Jones’s car stalled. That Jones girl.
Some tips:
When a name ends with an s, and when speaking of the family as a group, add es, as in Joneses. When speaking about something John Jones owned, it is his property and, therefore, an apostrophe and s shows ownership, as in Jones’s. When speaking about a person in the singular, use only the name Jones. However, when speaking about a group of girls all named Jones, you would write that sentence: The Jones girls. Notice that the name stays the same but the s is added to the word girl, stating more than one exists with t…
