Can You Be A Diamond?

A diamond doesn't start out polished and shining. It once was nothing special, but with enough pressure and time, becomes spectacular. Can you be that Diamond? Do you have what it takes to put in the time and take the pressure. If you do, expect big things and if you cannot, don't make excuses for where you are. Get out that and become that diamond!

A clear purpose will sustain you thru challenging times and keep you on track during tempting times.

Crabbing and A Life Lesson

One of my fondest childhood memories is crab fishing with my grandfather. He would often take the grand kids and our parents "Down the Shore" to catch some Jersey blue claws. On one particular crabbing trip I noticed the crab bucket did not have a top on it. I asked my grandfather why the crabs were not able to escape. My grandfather’s explanation taught me a valuable lesson.

My grandfather said, “If there was only one crab in the bucket it would certainly escape. However, when there is more than one crab in the bucket, if one tries to crawl out, the other crabs would grab hold and pull it back down so that it would share the same fate as the rest of them.”

I have learned over time this is true with people. If one person attempts to better himself, other people will attempt to drag him back down to share their fate.

Ignore the crabs if you want to be a success in life.

BULLY: Official Trailer

This year, over 5 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience. The Bully Project is the first feature documentary film to show how we've all been affected by bullying, whether we've been victims, perpetrators or stood silent witness. The world we inhabit as adults begins on the playground. The Bully Project opens on the first day of school. For the more than 5 million kids who'll be bullied this year in the United States, it's a day filled with more anxiety and foreboding than excitement. As the sun rises and school busses across the country overflow with backpacks, brass instruments and the rambunctious sounds of raging hormones, this is a ride into the unknown.

Is sitting the new smoking?

I came across an article in USA Today about the major health risks associated with sitting. And guess what... even if someone gets the recommended "30 minutes a day of moderate exercise" it is still not enough.

Here's a quick summery of the findings...

"A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) as well as findings released late last year by the American In
stitute for Cancer Research are causing experts to reconsider the importance of moving throughout the day in addition to getting regular exercise."

Basically, we all have to "MOVE" throughout the day too.

"Is sitting the new smoking?" 
The article compared sitting all day to the damage caused by smoking. WOW!
