thinking_manThings I have learned this decade:

With the decade winding down, I wanted to go off topic a bit, and list some of the best things I have learned this decade.

==> Dogs are the best animals on the planet, and they understand love better than people do.

==> That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

==> The less time I have, the more I seem to get done!???

==> That two people can look at the exact same thing and each can see something totally different.

==> To follow my passion. Being stuck in a rut that you absolutely dread is draining, unhealthy, and devastating to living life.

==> Take risks. Yes its scary but it forces you outside your comfort zone and you achieve or live out things you never thought possible.

==> To my kids I am their hero. I learned that my kids watch and absorb everything I do… good and bad. So I need to be a good role model. Emma thought it was great when I risked my own life to step into a busy highway to save a dogs life, but she also watches how I yell at the TV when the Packers are playing!

==> Earning lots of money does not make you happy if you aren’t doing what you love.

==> Receiving forgiveness, and being loved and accepted despite the mistakes or sins I have made is peace that surpasses all understanding.

==> Life has a top 5%. The reason 95% of the population never get there is they don’t want to push through and do what others are not willing to do. My two favorite quotes explain this well “Half of getting what you want is learning what you have to give up to get it.” “We must pull ourselves up to success, success will not lower itself to you.”

I learned to push harder, and achieve more with determination and discipline.

==> Love is more of an action than a feeling, and the constant action allows you to fall in love over and over again with the same person.

==> I have the best wife in the world, she is loyal, beautiful, loving, a great mother, and my best friend.
