The Spirit of The Season

My wish for you, this time of year, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday is that you feel the Spirit of The Season. The spirit that makes us forget ourselves and focus on others. The spirit that makes us aware of others needs and willing to reach out to help and to serve. This is the spirit of the season that we all need more of throughout the whole year. Many of you have probably seen the stories about the anonymous donors at Kmart who have been paying off the layaway items for others. If you haven’t you can read one of the articles HERE Last Friday night our family was at home having a nice night and my wife Sarah was reading the article I posted above. She was touched by the generosity of others and said, “Ty, I want to go and do this.

Success Through Wrestling

When my brother Scott was a freshman in high school a friend convinced him to go out for the wrestling team. Scott had never wrestled before, and worse yet, he only weighed 92 pounds. The lowest weight class was 103 pounds, so he was giving up nearly 10% of his body weight every time he wrestled. His freshman year was a disaster. He would come home bruised and exhausted everyday after practice. It was painful to watch. Even more painful, though, was the fact that he lost every single match the entire year. My Mom hated it so much that she literally offered Scott $500 to quit wrestling, but he decided to persevere. During the summer he worked out, practiced technique, and had a growth spurt that he so desperately needed. During his sophomore season his confidence grew and he finished the season with a winning record. By the end

The Belief of A Young Marine

I have a good friend named John Whittaker who is a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps. He told me a story that illustrates the power of beliefs and how they dictate and drive our actions, and it is a story that I have never been able to forget. He says. “When I was in the Marines I decided to go to Jump School to learn how to parachute out of airplanes. Interestingly, the government sends Marines to Fort Benning, Georgia to an Army Jump School. One night everyone was out at the bar having a few drinks and one marine bumped into an army ranger and spilled his beer. Words were exchanged and they squared off and began to fight. The marine was a lot smaller than the ranger and for the first two rounds of the fight it looked like the marine had no chance. But then

Care: A Great Investment

As a leader it is imperative that you invest in your people everyday. You’ve heard about going the extra mile, reaching above and beyond. If you want to be a person of influence, going the extra mile is exactly what investing in people is all about. Let me give you a great example of that. In 2003 on “Good Morning America,” Charlie Gibson was interviewing General Earl Hailston of the United States Marine Corps. General Hailson and his Marines were stationed a few miles outside of Iraq waiting to go to war. Throughout the interview they discussed the morale of the troops, and the plan and purpose of the mission. Then at the end of the interview, Charlie asked an interesting question. He said, “General do you have any hobbies, anything that you like to do other than your career?” General Hailston replied, “I do, I love photography and particularly
