There are 1440 minutes in a day. Have you considered what positive, loving, happy things you might be ignoring as you allow anger, jealousy, etc. to take some of those moments away?

We all go through a lot in our lives.
We should all strive to actually experience it instead of just going through it.
May 6, 2017
There might be a lot we don’t know,
But there is very little we can’t do!
So often, what “will” happen depends entirely on your “will not” make it happen.
In every decision, today ask yourself…
What is the kind thing to do?
What is the right thing to do?
May 5, 2017
Sometimes we can’t recognize the good things that are happening around us, that’s why it’s so important to allow them to recognize us!

One of the keys to being productive is being able to relax enough to be able to examine what’s before you. At that point, there is no fear to stop you.
May 2, 2017
It’s human nature to dream of being somewhere else, doing something else. Just also remember that where we are and what we’re doing is someone else’s dream too.

The truth is that the most wonderful thing that has ever happened to you, might be eclipsed by something just ahead in your future.

A wonderful goal for each day is no matter how nasty or nice others might be to us,
we commit to being so nice to others they’ll want to pass that kindness along to others.

Always ask yourself if the things you’re holding onto are helping to move you forward or are they holding you back.

What you have to offer others isn’t up to you! Every person you meet will see things in you that you have never recognized.
April 21, 2017
While we might think this is necessary, just make sure that wherever you go, you take yourself along too.
April 20, 2017
It’s so simple but every once in a while we need the reminder…
When you’re around anger you feel depleted and sad.
When you’re around happiness and love you feel energized!
April 19, 2017
Don’t let fear be your teacher. Meditate, pray or think about your strength and use it every instant.

Surviving the next few minutes is how we end up surviving at all.

Find a way!
That’s it. A simple phrase that we should remember every day.
Find a way to be kind.
Find a way to enjoy life.
Find a way to move forward.
Find a way to do the right things.
Just Find A Way!
April 15, 2017
Literally, every step we take, decision we either make or don’t make, changes the world both for us and everyone else too.
April 14, 2017
One of the best ways to have a calm mind is simply not to disturb it. Use your thoughts as a filter, not an amplifier.

You can’t move past them unless you know not only what they are, but where they are.

April 10, 2017
Fragility isn’t yours to imagine, it’s the sole possession of those young you’re attempting to judge.
April 9, 2017
Creativity flows in its own ocean. For that reason, don’t be concerned if you missed it. Be assure there will be another wave arriving soon.

In order to get where we are today, we’ve all traveled roads that we didn’t think we could.
April 6, 2017
It is so simple but we so often walk right by it.
April 5, 2017
Realize even if we don’t like someone else’s ideas, they might just be right.
Realize even if someone else doesn’t like our ideas, we might be right.

What is the kind thing to do?
What is the right thing to do?
March 31, 2017
Everyone we meet today will have some sort of gift for us. Some we will like, others we won’t. But, we should always respect that choice.
March 30, 2017
Instead of focusing on what you hope to gain, focus on what you’re willing to give.
March 29, 2017
What kind of duties do we all have today? I’m not talking about work or chores around the house. What “duties” do we have in life today? Duties to ourselves, to those we’ll come in contact with today, to our future…
March 28, 2017
March 27, 2017
Do your best!
That’s it, just do your best.
If you do that, the rest will take care of itself.
March 26, 2017
Often when we go to different places, we put on different faces to fit the situation. Work, home, walking down the street, etc.
March 25, 2017
Make finding gratefulness and thankfulness just as important as our most important family or business goals.

When you think you need to do something is one thing,
When you feel you must do something is when life moves forward.
March 21, 2017
Allow yourself to yourself to love enough someone today to help them. (FYI…”Someone” = every single person we see, talk to, walk by or every single person who does the same to us).
March 20, 2017
March 19, 2017
In order to have love, you must have loyalty.
Without loyalty, love is only the lettering on the facade.
March 18, 2017
In order to move past your problems, you first have to see and accept they are there.
You can’t move past them unless you know not only what they are, but where they are
March 17, 2017
When good things happen, don’t minimize them. Accept them.
March 16, 2017
It sounds simplistic but when you’re feeling a bit low, take a minute to tell yourself how thankful you are to be where you are, doing what you’re doing and the opportunities that might be around the corner.
March 15, 2017
You reflect what you soak in.
March 14, 2017
March 13, 2017
I’m not trying to parse words here – sometimes, we all feel lousy and that’s OK. It’s kind of like a millionaire who loses half a million dollars. He’s not broke, but he feels like he is. You or I would take $500,000 any day, right? I hope you feel great and you’ll never leave that wonderful state.
March 12, 2017
Access your mood each day and tailor your contact with others accordingly. Some days the “office” door should be open. And other days, it should be shut until you can work through yourself.
March 11, 2017
Sometimes having a large vocabulary can be a real impediment instead of an advantage. Too often we search for the “right” word or phrase to describe our situation or problems instead of just being honest about what they are. A “politically correct” or “polite” definition rarely is an accurate one.
March 10, 2017
Want a good way to feel better today? Just appreciate something. The church bells in the distance. The sound of the wind. Someone’s attention. Just stop and appreciate.
March 9, 2017
March 8, 2017
You reflect what you soak in.
March 7, 2017
Many times the behavior we are most afraid of happens when we feel alone. Sometimes, we need to be there for ourselves.
March 6, 2017
Life is full of distractions. Your goal is for you to choose your distractions. Don’t let life choose them for you.
March 5, 2017
March 4, 2017
Today, enjoy the time you spend with yourself. If you can do that, it’s guaranteed you’ll enjoy the time you spend with others.
March 3, 2017
Where do you get your inspiration? Right now wherever you are – stop. Look around in the least likely place. The inspiration is always there. You just have to be willing to look for it.
March 2, 2017
Taking the “easy” way out usually turns out to be quite a bit harder.
March 1, 2017
Speak up! Whatever is on your mind might just be the key to unlocking someone’s future!
February 28, 2017
February 27, 2017
It’s easy to talk about successes. It’s wise to talk about failures.
February 26, 2017
Don’t “try” something new today, ”do” something new. Maybe you won’t like it, but if you do, it might open up a whole new future.
February 25, 2017
God’s fingers don’t touch the painter’s canvas, but they do guide their hand by touching their soul.
February 24, 2017
February 23, 2017
Can people know what others who might be hundreds of miles away are thinking? Science says no. Lovers and friends certainly disagree.
February 22, 2017
Sometimes the loudest statement is a simple nod.
February 21, 2017
Today is your best tomorrow.
February 20, 2017

February 19, 2017
Treat yourself kindly and with insight. You deserve it
February 18, 2017
February 17, 2017
What can we learn from Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, etc?
Nothing, unless we’re willing to learn…
February 16, 2017
“Thank you” can go a long way towards easing regret.
February 15, 2017
No matter how absolute a fact, it can never be used correctly until you accept it.
February 14, 2017
February 13, 2017
Observation should be beautiful learning.
February 12, 2017
It’s OK to struggle to have a positive outlook. Sometimes life makes it difficult to believe you can move forward. Realizing where you need to go is more than half the battle.
February 11, 2017
There are so many different ways that can result in happiness. There’s only one way to achieve it though…through yourself.
February 10, 2017
Smiles make you feel great but can literally be a lifesaver for someone else.
February 9, 2017
February 8, 2017
Nowhere is the possibility of moving sideways, staying in the same place or moving backward. We must move forward.
February 7, 2017
There comes a time when you have to trust. If you don’t, you will never move forward. Trusting others is hard, but not as hard as sometimes trusting yourself.
February 6, 2017
A true friend can be someone you speak with every day or a memory you recall from 20 years ago.
February 5, 2017
February 4, 2017
Our dreams are born each second we’re alive.
February 3, 2017
Find a reason!
But too often we rationalize the reason after we finish rather than finding it before we start.
February 2, 2017
Do your best to cooperate today. If you have the choice, choose to cooperate.
February 1, 2017
January 31, 2017
Be available. In your life, every day, every minute be available. Be available for everything and everyone that comes into your life both good and bad.
January 30, 2017
Sometimes “enough” doesn’t mean you will win, it just means you did you best.
January 29, 2017

Not only should we remember we measure ourselves with a different metric but we do the same for every other person we judge as well.
January 26, 2017
Listen to your words, as they move your life.
January 25, 2017
Counting your blessings is fine. Being grateful for them is so much better.
January 24, 2017
Use the time you are given, not the time you wish you had or the time you think is owed you.
January 23, 2017
January 22, 2017
Everything in life that is outside of you is a critic – sales goals, friend’s likes or dislikes, Twitter, Facebook, conversations with friends or family, etc. The key is understanding what your reality is, and what their reality is and then, what reality is.
January 21, 2017
The journey you’re on to find the secret of life might just be the secret of life. So, enjoy your search.
January 20, 2017
January 19, 2017
Every step in life you take will be better & stronger. So when you look back at them remember they weren’t primitive, they were formative.
January 18, 2017
There are so many facts that are available to make so many of the decisions in our life. Finding them, even accepting them is sometimes so much harder than using them to move forward.
January 17, 2017
Afraid of the unknown? Even if the answer is yes; we’re not afraid of the unknown. We’re afraid of what our imagination convinces us is known.
Our imagination conjures up all of the nasty “what ifs” and does its best to convince us “this is our future.” Defeating the unknown is easy! Think about it. “Unknown” means is we don’t know, meaning there is nothing to defeat, nothing to be afraid of. The tough part comes in defeating our own imagination. As a matter of fact, we can’t defeat our imagination. It is the most powerful force in the universe because it can direct and redirect our behavior and in fact, our life.
So use your imagination. Use it to redirect your life. Use it to get rid of your fear of the unknown and turn it into anticipating a good outcome from the unknown. Use it to redirect not only the unknown but your life.
January 16, 2017
Eternity is a team event. It can’t be realized by yourself.
January 15, 2017
January 14, 2017
It’s OK to be angry, just don’t let that angry state rule make decisions for you or affect the lives of others around you
January 13, 2017
Reconciling where you are and where you want to be are the most important steps you will ever make. Without this knowledge, no step forward can ever be confident.
January 12, 2017
So many people start their day with a workout of some sort like a run or a trip to the gym, but while they’re very concerned about their physical makeup they forget about their mental make-up. Take 15 minutes and rejuvenate your mind. Meditate, pray, ruminate or do whatever you can, however, you can get rid of the unwanted fragments you have hanging around, the unproductive bits that you might have been hanging on to for too long. Then move forward in your day with a mind that is as energetic as your body and works better faster and more productively.
January 11, 2017
Accept the compliment! Don’t “sluff” it off, don’t throw out a witty response. Accept the compliment! It is a heartfelt gift.
January 10, 2017
January 9, 2017
We aren’t that different.
We all want to get high. We might do it in a different way. We might drink it, smoke it, pray it, meditate it but we aren’t that different.
We all want to be rich. We might wish it in a different way. We might want money, love, legacy or understanding but we aren’t that different.
We aren’t that different. But if this is true then why can’t we understand each other. Why can’t we help instead of talking about helping, believe – instead of doubt, listen with an open mind instead of criticize with a closed one? We aren’t that different.
We aren’t that different
January 8, 2017
You’re allowed to ask yourself questions about your life. You’re required to answer them honestly.
January 7, 2017
Much too often during our day, we look for life’s great lessons. We look for life’s wisdom. We look for life’s important questions to be answered.
Instead, we should look for life! We should enjoy whatever parts of life are available to us. We should wrap ourselves up in life. Don’t focus on finding a small part of life, focus on the entire “picture” because it includes all of those small lessons we want to be answered.
January 6, 2017
January 5, 2017
Watching someone walk out of your life is always hard however when that happens, consider what side they are choosing to show you as they walk out.
January 4, 2017
Whenever you’re feeling “stuck” or like you’ve hit a “brick wall” remember that the closer you get to your goal, the harder and slower things become. Maybe that’s so you can slow down, look around and appreciate where you once were and where you are now.
December 31, 2016
While we take a few days off around the new year, let me wish you a 2017 filled with Hope, Happiness, Love and Light. I hope that each day in the new year, you’ll be filled with amazement and wonder at the incredible gifts life has left for you.
Most of all, I wish you Peace.

Your past was the vehicle that brought you to where you are today. Today is the fuel that will get you to the best future possible.
December 28, 2016
Many times, we’re too worried about filling the “space” with “content” when we should be concerned with building a “space” around our “content”.
December 27, 2016
It’s easy to brag about successes.
It’s wise to consider our failures
December 22, 2016
The staff and crew at www.GreggMasters.com are taking the next few days off, so I thought I’d leave you with this…
Many of us might say the words but lack on some basic details. I’m not a theologian but I thought I’d take a shot at explaining a few of the celebrations during the”Season of Love” as best I can.
This year, Hanukkah begins on December the 24th. Here is a very simple explanation of what happened and why it is celebrated…
In the second century BC, the Jews rededicated the Holy Temple during the revolt against the Seleucid Empire. The Jews found only a single container of olive oil to burn in their lanterns. That was just a one day supply for them to burn. Miraculously, that one-day supply burned for eight days!
So today, families and friends gather around their Menorah and offer praise and thanksgiving. There are many prayers offered and rituals celebrated. Hanukkah will be celebrated from sunset on December 24th to January 1st.
The story of Christmas is widely known, but…
Christmas Eve (24th) and Christmas Day (25th) are centered around the birth of Jesus. All around the world people celebrate Christmas Day, but Christmas Eve is a bit different. Lights, trees, and other decorations, wrapping gifts, even exchanging gifts happen on Christmas Eve, leading many towards a midnight Mass or services to celebrate Christmas Day.
Families gather, gifts exchanged, church services, the celebration and commemoration of Jesus’s birth are among the activities on Christmas.
Happy Boxing Day
Boxing Day is on December 26th. It’s a national holiday in the UK and is observed in Canada, Australia, South Africa, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Scotland, and other countries.
I’ve always heard Boxing Day can be traced back to the Middle Ages when churches put a box for donations to the poor. The day evolved in the 1600s to Christmas boxes for tradespeople to collect money for good service throughout the year, since they worked on Christmas Day for their employers. Boxing Day used to be a day to relax and enjoy but is now has become a day for soccer and hockey games and SALES!
(Even though the United States doesn’t celebrate Boxing Day, they certainly do share this aspect of it!) The sales used to start in after the new year but not now.
If you want any more information about these holidays or any others, REACH OUT to someone who celebrates them and ask! I’m guessing they would feel honored by your questions. If you observe any of these traditions or have a different traditional celebration in the next few days, I simply want to wish you Happiness, Peace, Love and Kindness. Too often these days, it seems we forget this is what the Season and its celebrations and traditions are all about. I often hear people say we’re in the “Season of Love.” Well, I appreciate what they’re saying, but shouldn’t every season we’re in, every day we’re alive, be the “Season of Love?
Enjoy your days, be Thankful, Loving and Kind. (And have patience at those family gatherings when “Old Uncle Horace” starts telling you why you’re wrong…)
December 21, 2016
Take a moment to imagine the impossible. Imagine you can fly like a bird, hit that curve ball in the Major Leagues, etc. Whatever it is you’re imagining, enjoy it. Believe it. Revel in it. “Ride-along” with it.
December 20, 2016
We need to realize sometimes our greatest inspirations come from places no one imagined we could reach. Don’t be afraid to go there.
December 19, 2016
Everything in life is overwhelming until you look back and see your successes.
December 18, 2016
December 17, 2016
We’ve all heard the phrase “We do what we can.” Nope. We do what we convince ourselves we can.
Truth be told, we could all do more. Truth be told, we all should do more than we do. We convince ourselves what we “can” and “can’t” do. Then we convince ourselves that whatever we decided to do or not do, was the right thing. The bottom line is we convince ourselves to alter reality into a version that fits into our life. Strive to alter reality not by what you convinced yourself to do but by the outcome of what you did
December 16, 2016
Your evolution in life doesn’t go from birth to death. It goes from second to second.
December 15, 2016
The most important things in life make you feel, in order to understand them.
December 14, 2016
December 13, 2016
Think about what you can not yet imagine.
December 12, 2016
All the good we can see in the world started with just one person and one idea that was created, then shared and then acted upon. One thought! Share one of yours today with someone you care about.
December 11, 2016
December 10, 2016
Having a friend in need ask you for help, is one of the hardest decisions they’ll ever have to make. It also should be one of your life’s great honors to be asked!
December 9, 2016
In an age where we are constantly lamenting that we don’t have enough heroes or role models, it stings to lose a man who fits both of those descriptions so well.
John Glenn might be known as a test pilot, astronaut, Senator, etc. But more that, he is a hero! The things he laid his life on the line for, paid huge dividends and continue to do so today. So, no matter your political party, age or even what country you’re from, if you have some time today, Google John Glenn. Then, in whatever way you deem most appropriate, whisper him a Thank You.
I don’t think Scott Carpenter will mind if you borrow his words –
“Godspeed John Glenn”

December 7, 2016
Keep alive the spirit and soul of that one special person in your life who, when you think of them, makes life disappear and makes love appear, by living your life in a way that would make them proud.
December 6, 2016
One day to be able to understand the difference between the statement “Today I learned something” and “Today I was taught something” will mark an amazing accomplishment in your life.
December 5, 2016
So often, “not knowing quite what we’re doing” isn’t what gets us into trouble. What gets us into trouble is pretending we know exactly what we’re doing, when we don’t!
December 4, 2016
December 3, 2016
Every day, find a way to do something for someone that you meet, so that when you look back at the end of the day, you’ll be proud.
December 2, 2016
Don’t let yourself worry about living a “difficult” part of life that’s coming up for you. Instead, enjoy every one of the moments today that offer you something positive. One moment will lead to another and another and that after all, is what turns into your life.
December 1, 2016
A true friend is someone you trust enough, that you allow them to help you open up your mind!
November 30, 2016
Listen to your words as they move your life.
November 29, 2016
November 28, 2016
So many of the most confident people you know, got that way because they were also some of the most loved people you know. If you find yourself needing more self-confidence, trying giving yourself more love.
November 27, 2016
Disappointment is part of life but so is rebounding from it and becoming a better person.
November 26, 2016
The beginning of all great friendships is always “Hello.”
November 25, 2016
Remember all those thoughts and conversations from yesterday about gratitude? Great! Now realize they don’t belong in history, they belong in every second of every day!
November 24, 2016
Sometimes the best answers we’ll ever get, are those that we truly spend some time considering, without expectation of what answer you’ll get back.
Here’s a question to start with…
“I know I’m grateful, but what am I missing that I should be even more grateful for?”
November 23, 2016
November 22, 2016
Say this out loud. “Thank you.” Didn’t take that long at all, did it?
November 21, 2016
A way to change the past doesn’t exist!
November 20, 2016
One of the most infuriating things that happens to all of us, is when people fail to communicate with us. Maybe, we are failing to communicate with them too. The only way to know for sure is if we communicate effectively with ourselves.
November 19, 2016
Sometimes events, sights, sounds and smells trigger memories that are meant to recharge and energize us! Remember them, smile about them, laugh with them, love that moment again!
November 18, 2016
November 17, 2016
In any “trying” circumstance, finding even one positive thing, can give you the space you might need to see the situation for what it is, as opposed to what you thought it was.
November 16, 2016
Find a reason today to do something that you’ll look back on tomorrow with pride.
November 15, 2016
Whenever you feel anger start to overtake you immediately find the quickest way to do something positive. Road rage? Stop thinking about the driver and pull into a fast food place and buy a drink or lunch for somebody in line behind you. At home when you start to feel the anger, stop and go hug somebody, go next door just to tell your neighbor thanks for being a good neighbor, etc. If we fight anger – it will always win. But if we ignore it, on our way towards gratitude and happiness, it always gets lost!
November 14, 2016
November 13, 2016
Send yourself a message every day or even send yourself a letter every once in a while that simply says “I’m a nice person and I’m doing my best! Hang in there”
November 12, 2016
There’s so much information that goes through our heads every day, but what do we “hold on to?” Do we remember the positive, kind, grateful, or inspirational? The “Good Info” can become lost in the overload we all experience. Make a mental note of all the “Good Info” in our lives. Think about the best of the day before you go to bed, tell a loved one about it or just focus and remember it for another day.
November 11, 2016
Looking someone in the eye will reveal more than words ever could.
November 10, 2016
November 9, 2016
Today is the day after Election Day. Find a way today to ask yourself this question –
What can I do right now, this instant to reach out and help others, even those I might not agree with?
November 8, 2016
Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day. Most of us know this. Many of us might be very anxious about it and scared by what we think might happen. All of that is in the future. For today, Vote! Breathe and wait for the facts. Then, move forward and maybe find a friend to move with you.
November 7, 2016
Big difference between “Aspire” and “Desire” – Each day we need to decide between them on every decision we make.

What’s important? Not what’s convenient. Not what’s appropriate. Not what makes you feel good. What’s important? That is the question we need to ask ourselves with every decision we make every day.

There is a huge difference between asking someone if they need help and offering to help.

Are you an enabler? Maybe you should be. We hear that word “enabler” and we always associate it with a negative, but it’s not a bad thing. Enable someone today. Enable someone to grow, enable
someone to learn, enable someone to love. Be an enabler today and change someone’s life for the better.

Two questions to consider; What label would you use to describe yourself? Second, what label would someone that followed you for a day and didn’t know you, give to you?

Everyone has a dream somewhere inside of them. Don’t ignore your’s and don’t deny theirs.

Too often we wait until the end of the day to look back and say “What a great day that was!” Today adopt a new routine, instead of looking back when you’re done, enjoy each minute, each second and each instant that you’ve been given.

Simple but so important…
Enjoy what you can
When you can!

In our pre-teen and teen years and maybe a bit after, we spend so much time trying to separate ourselves from those we love. We lock ourselves in another room with the telephone cord stretched to its max, we hear what our parents are saying but do our best not to listen, we move away, etc.
Later in life, we do all we can to get closer. We do anything and everything to get as close as we can in whatever time we might have left. If hearing this, reading this, realizing this, gets you even one-millimeter closer and even one-second faster to telling your loved ones you care, then all is worth it!

The sagest wisdom ever spoken is only noise unless you hear it with an open mind.

There is not a more important day to you than today. Yesterday you can’t do anything about & tomorrow depends on what you do today

Searching for happiness, searching for a brighter future is only fruitful when you take the initiative to use what you find

It seems that “we” will go to almost any length possible to find the negative, to remember past failings. (Pointing out flaws, to feel the pain or disappointment in past history our present positions or future possibilities.) It’s up to us to realize these things and move away from them, to understand the trajectory and change it. Realize that as long as we are able to think and breathe we the lucky ones. We are at that point changing reality. We are at that point shaping our future and the future of those around us for the better

Get rid of the “should have’s” in your life. I “should have” done this, we “should have” done that. Stop It! Maybe you should have but you didn’t! Instead of wasting your time over something you can’t control change your mindset from “should have” to “gonna do.” The only way to respect the past is to affect your future

I hear someone say that sometimes they didn’t like it how their daughter will ask them something and catch her in a “quick moment.” There aren’t any “quick moments.” Every moment in life is the same, so the fact that she gives less attention because she might be busy isn’t her daughter’s fault, it’s not a “quick moment’s” fault, it’s our fault. Every moment is the same and we need and deserve to give every moment the attention and the care it deserves.

The pressures in your life are real but not letting them become damaging is the key. Realizing what you can & can’t control is a great start.

A “closed mind” is like a glass of water that is never refilled. After a while, the water in that glass becomes stale and polluted and eventually, begins to evaporate away.
