The Power and Practical Application of Prayer

By: | Tags: | Comments: 1

The recent mass shootings, especially in the U.S., has caused people to question the power and effectiveness of prayer. Some has suggested that, if prayer worked, the Pope would play a more significant role in addressing mass shootings worldwide. I think this is a fair and pertinent question. The following is my response.

Charge your life!

Have you ever seen the movie Braveheart? In short, it is about a man fighting for his country’s freedom. The movie is set back when wars were fought with swords while riding horseback. I love the scene where the soldier yells, “Charge!!” That scream alone creates its own climactic point-passion and determination. What would it be like if you charged your life? Now, don’t go into work screaming, “Charge!” it might make for a very long day. But, you can scream in your heart. You can demonstrate your passion for […]

This day was created for you, and was given to you by your Maker. You are important. You are a piece of the big puzzle, so we need you at your best. The way you think about yourself impacts the way you think about others. The way you feel about yourself impacts the way you feel about others and the world.  What are your top three positive characteristics? How can you use these characteristics to enhance this day for yourself, and for others? For me, it’s: Passion, Commitment, and Inspiration. […]

Are you living?

What does it mean for you to truly live? Certainly, just being alive is not enough, is it? For some having survived grave illnesses, or near death experiences, being alive may be enough. But, if that is not you, what are you doing to live-truly live? After years of coaching people, I’ve learned that most people don’t know the answer to that question. Can you ask, “Am I really living?” Moreover, can you answer the question? I believe there is a reason and purpose for you being here. It has […]

You can overcome any challenge

Thirty-one years ago the Space Shuttle Challenger ended in disaster. I was 17 years old, and a student at Health Careers High School. This shuttle launch was special to me because it was the first time NASA was going to send a civilian teacher into space. While Christa McAuliffe was selected, many teachers applied for the adventure. One of those teachers taught at my high school. Out of thousands of applicants, our teacher made it to the final group. He was so close that he had been assigned one of […]

Your New Genesis…

You may not have won a Grammy yesterday. You may not have won a Super Bowl. Regardless, today is a new day. Everyone, winners and losers, face a new day. Begin…start…commence…open-there’s something refreshing and optimistic about words like these. Whether they refer to the dawn of a new day, the birth of a child, the prelude of a symphony, or the first day on the job-beginning feels good. Your perception, of course, has a lot to do with creating this experience.  If you take the same old perspective of your […]

Worst Present Ever Darinism

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

The reason I waited this late to send out this Darinism is because, by now, you’ve probably have opened all of your gifts, except for maybe one… What do you think the worst present ever is? When you open the present and find one old, funky sock? Nope. Perhaps the worst present is a box you’ve opened and found nothing but trash. Nope. Oh, wait, maybe it’s the gift that you open and find nothing at all. Nope, that’s not the worst present ever. There is a worst present ever, […]

Your Darinism…Pain’s purpose

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

There are two types of pain: the pain that breaks you, and the pain that makes you. The difference between the two is you. Only you can decide if your pain will break or make you. It doesn’t matter where the pain comes from, nor how painful the pain is, you  make the final decision. The victim is the one who breaks down. The victor is the one who, in-spite of the pain, breaks through. Pain is the opportunity to showcase either your greatest weakness, or your greatest strengths. You […]
