Leave Love Behind

How do we want people to remember us after we have departed from this world? Personally, I want to leave a legacy of love, grace, and mercy. On March 8, 2018, my brother James Miller passed away. James had a progressive paralysis disease since birth and was not projected to live past 17. However, due … Continued

Focus on Experiences, Not Mistakes

How often do you make mistakes? If we are not actively seeking to make mistakes each day, we are not growing. It is easy to stay in a “safe” state, doing the things we are good at, staying around the same people, keeping the same job because it pays the bills. But is this really … Continued

Visual Environment

I recently participated in a volunteer program at my daughter’s elementary school called WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students). The two primary goals of the program are: 1) To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important. 2) To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to … Continued

Pineapple Express

First I want to issue a disclaimer, for all of those who have seen the movie Pineapple Express, this article will be nothing like the movie.

What’s Your Sports GPA?

If I ask any of the high school players I train what their school GPA is, they can immediately give me a number down to the tenth of a point. However, if I ask them the same question as it relates to basketball, I get a blank stare. So I ask them again, “If you … Continued

Total Recall

Our brain is probably the most complex organ in our body. Even though there are thousands of scientists and doctors who devote their lives to studying the brain, they still only understand a percentage of how it functions.

FUEL Your Mind

In this day and age, there are many different modes of transportation. We can rely on someone else to get us to our destination by taking an Uber or Lyft. Or, we can take control and drive ourselves on our journey. But do we know where we are going? And did we check the traffic … Continued

  Some things are easier in theory than reality.  For many people, one of those things is trusting their thoughts enough to take action.  And, sometimes, one of those things is knowing when NOT to trust their thoughts because they are causing inaction.  This is a precarious balance which takes time and practice to achieve. … Continued
