Are You a Coward?

Do you think your friends on the left are keeping their mouths shut? Nope.



Are you a coward?

Here’s some straight talk for some of you conservatives. I hear from people all the time how appreciative they are of me for standing up for the truth, and that’s great, but then some of you ruin the whole thing by saying something along the lines of, “but I just can’t do that because it would affect my business.”

You, my friend, are a coward.

Do you think your friends on the left are keeping their mouths shut? Nope. And that is why they are destroying our country even though they are in the minority. Every time you remain silent, you give tacit approval to those who will win simply because you are afraid.

Here is an example: When they tell you that man with a penis is a woman and that he should be called she/her and you just go along, you are demonstrating cowardice. And that is how we got into this mess. The inmates are running the asylum.

I’m really glad the founding fathers of our great nation were more concerned with truth than with money. Frankly, they knew that without standing for the truth, within a generation or two their freedoms would be gone. Better to stand for the truth and risk it all than to hide in the corner sucking your thumb and lose it all slowly, guaranteed.

Here is how it affects me. I will regularly get calls from people who want me to speak at their events. Now you must understand that I never talk politics at my events (maybe a reference or two but ALWAYS in a non-partisan manner). I talk about leadership and influence and success. We will talk on the phone and decide that it’s going to be a great event and they say that they’re going to send me a contract. Then a few days later I get that phone call. “I’m sorry, but someone on our board saw that you were a Trump supporter and said that we can’t bring you in.” That’s it. The left will destroy and cancel with impunity and the right just gets in line and follows along.

Or I will have people who love my work but are too afraid to have me on their podcasts, not because I will say anything negative on the podcast, but because of my politics OFF the podcast. And these are political views that are shared by a majority of the country!

In many ways, I have been canceled, and that is okay. I can look in the mirror and know that I am standing for the truth and fighting the destructive forces of liberalism and progressivism.

My challenge to you: Stand for something. Take a stand. Speak up. We need you. I need you. This can’t be done without ALL of us.

If you don’t, it is only a matter of time until your freedoms are gone. The left is pushing hard to destroy every fabric of our great country. It is time to forget about our “money” and our “businesses.” If you try to save them only, with fighting for the truth, you will surely lose them eventually and your children and grandchildren will wonder why you didn’t speak up.

Provocative Questions to Get You Moving

What would make you pause and think about what’s really important?



Suppose I asked you four questions to make you pause, think about what’s really important, perhaps take some action steps, and get you moving in a positive direction. What might I ask?

Here are four such questions:

* What would you do if you truly only had six months to live?

* What would you read if you could only pick six books for the rest of your life?

* If you could return to any age what would it be?

* If you could live anywhere other than here, where would it be?


By way of example, here is each question with my own answers to help stimulate your thinking:

What would I do if I truly only had six months to live? I would visit everyone who ever mattered to me one more time; visit all my childhood haunts; visit three or four tourist destinations in the world that I’ve wanted to see; eat like an incredible pig; parcel out my assets carefully and accordingly, safeguard my daughter’s financial future and well-being to the best of my abilities; and donate many items to charity.

If I could only read six books for the rest of my life, they would probably be The Timetables of History, Childhood’s End, The Call of the Wild, The One Hundred, From Dawn to Decadence, and The Culture of Celebrity. Runners-up would be The Demon-Haunted World, Crime and Punishment, Moby Dick, MacBeth, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, and The World of Our Fathers

If I could be any age what would I be: 38, because at that age I had the optimal mix of capabilities and faculties, unbounded potential, and unbridled enthusiasm. My career as an author was beginning to bloom and amazingly I hadn’t yet been on my first of 45 cruises.

If I could live anywhere other than here, where would it be and why aren’t I there? The places I could settle include Asheville, NC; Austin, TX; Monterrey, CA; Sausalito, CA; Tucson, AZ; Las Vegas, NV; Vancouver, British Columbia; London, England; Paris, France; Vevey, Switzerland; Montreux, Switzerland; Bruges, Belgium; Helsinki, Finland; Gothenburg, Sweden; Stockholm, Sweden, and any place where it is spring, birds are chirping, and large lakes invite you to swim.

21 Ways That People with Work-life Balance Are Different from Others (Part 3)

Even in our fast-paced society, slowing down is continually attainable



Here is the final set of seven ways the people who have attained work-life balance set themselves apart from the rest:

15) The typical person is easily distracted by daily noise and interruptions. Those with work-life balance monitor and manage their personal space to minimize distractions.
* carry ear plugs
* sound proof your workspace
* find alternative work locations and spaces, such as a picnic table or park bench * visit

16) The typical person focuses on finishing the workday in order to drop back and relax. Those with work-life balance are productive at work and have a life for the rest of the day after work.
* leave work at a reasonable hour
* reduce TV watching and web surfing
* employ your den as a mini-gym
* engage in invigorating leisure

17) The typical person engages in inactive leisure, i.e. watching TV, web surfing. Those with work-life balance employ leisure for novel experiences, learning, and physical activity.
* live closer, not farther from work
* rediscover hobbies
* join group activities
* peruse local event notices and attend

18) The typical person intermittently invests in his or her own well-being. Those with work-life balance strategically purchase goods and services that support their well-being.
* buy in multiples when all supplies will eventually be used up
* make strategic purchases…
* if it saves one hour a week
* if it takes up little space, is portable, expandable, flexible, can be traded in

19) The typical person longs for the good old days when the pace of life was slower. Those with work-life balance recognize that even in our fast-paced society, slowing down is continually attainable.
* acknowledge and accept the world as it is
* seek to change aspects of your personal environment over which you have control
* consider the 80-20 rule and ignore low-payoff tasks and activities
* emulate the role models in your industry, organization, or profession

20) The typical person over-collects work-life balance tips hoping that such information will rub off on them. Those who have work-life balance ingest the insights of others, and ultimately follow the beat of their own drum.
* put what you learn into motion
* adopt new behaviors until they become habits
* establish new personal systems
* develop rewarding rituals

21) The typical parent passes their hectic lifestyle on to their children. Those who have it teach their children what is needed to continually experience work-life balance
* remember: children learn most from observation
* exhibit behaviors that you want them to emulate
* include them in activities, ask for their opinion
* act accordingly: actions speak louder than words
