Dream Bigger!

Written by Kevin Eikenberry

A number of years ago we created a graphic logo based onrepparttar phrase Dream Bigger! We produced buttons and t-shirts. Iíve signed letters and emails with this phrase. It is more than a short inspirational phrase. It embodies a truth for all of us as individuals and carries extra importance for us as a leader.

Dream Bigger!

In order for an individual to reach their potential, they must have some sense, vision or dream of where they want to go. And most all of us fall far short of creating dreams that are impossible. More likely isrepparttar 146915 person setting their sights too low.

As a leader we can help people see their potential. We can help them believe in their dreams. And we can provide support, resources, encouragement and wise counsel to help them expand on those dreams as they see success. We can truly help them . . .

Dream Bigger!

Do You Have Terminal Brain Cloud?

Written by Dave Cole

Whenrepparttar movie, Joe vsrepparttar 146914 Volcano came out in 1990 it didn't get good revues, in fact many ofrepparttar 146915 critics believed it was Steven Spielberg's attempt at comedy and a flop at that.

But inside what seems like a comedy/romance there are some real gems of inner life wisdom.

Joe is an ordinary guy (played by Tom Hanks) who is stuck in a despicable job with despicable people. His life is pitiful, plus Joe's a hypochondriac on top of it all.

Joe goes to doctor after doctor and finally Dr. Ellison (Robert Stack) tells Joe he has a terminal brain cloud with only a short time to live. So Joe quits his job, tells his boss off and takesrepparttar 146916 secretary out for dinner.

An eccentric billionaire Samuel Harvey Graynamore played by Lloyd Bridges, approaches Joe and promises to give Joerepparttar 146917 lifestyle he always wanted and it all ends with Joe jumping intorepparttar 146918 volcano to appeaserepparttar 146919 fire god.

See, there is a mineral on an island called Waponi Woo that Graynamore needs and a volcano (the Big Woo), which needs a human sacrifice every 100 years. So Joe agrees to makerepparttar 146920 big leap.

Joe getsrepparttar 146921 lifestyle of a king then is transported to Waponi Woo byrepparttar 146922 billionaire's daughter Patricia, played by Meg Ryan.

Joe was a hero inrepparttar 146923 fire department before going to work in his present job. He had courage. Part of Joe vsrepparttar 146924 Volcano is about courage.

But Joe lost his courage and sold his soul to Mr. Waturi (his old boss) for a lousy 300 bucks a week. Joe was afraid. Afraid of losing his despicable job, afraid to say what was on his mind for fear of upsetting his boss, afraid to live his life, afraid to make a change.

And Joe became soul sick, he knew he was losing his soul.

Joe's life was controlled by one thing: Fear.

When Dr. Ellison told Joe he had terminal brain cloud, Joe was already dead. He didn't have a life, he was in a situation that he put up with every day for a paycheck and a totally false sense of security.

The minute Joe said he would jump intorepparttar 146925 volcano, it was then that Joe once again regained and refound his courage.

It was at that point that Joe began waking up out of his psychic slumber and started to become alive.

Joe had allowed himself to be controlled by his own thoughts of illness and allowed himself to be a victim, which lead him torepparttar 146926 despicable lifestyle he found himself in.
