Have you been in a situation lately that required you to use courage?  As a child, it seemed like it was a weekly deal.  The butterflies would stir in our stomachs as we tried to muster up the courage to jump off the diving board or ride our bike without training wheels.  After a lot of bumps and bruises, we finally reached success.

This week is all about a gut check on our commitment to making choices that will lead us down a path of success.  No excuses…Go  [ Read More ]
