Teachers Quitting Teaching- At an Alarming Rate- One Minute with Jay

 I am shocked at how many teachers are leaving their jobs or should I say how many have left in 2018. What scares me is if this trend continues. Who will teach my daughter? My future kids? Without wise teachers I would not have …

Advice has to come from experience

This video is for all of those people that are trying to achieve something that maybe bigger than them.

You speak with family or close friends that don’t always share your vision or even understand you.

I get it.

Remember that people can only give you what they have personally learned and experienced. So their advice or lack of it (or even lack of support) is not a reflection of love.

You may be speaking to the wrong folks.

How to set a new year resolution

How to set a new year resolution

I am not in favor of massive new year resolutions where you save the world, end world hunger and get the girl of your dreams all in one year.

Maybe you can accomplish one of those but all three? Come on now…it ain’t happening.

Try not to bite off more than you can chew. Take one or two things you really want to improve and work on them exclusively.

I almost want to tell you to only pick one major resolution, then plan to build the habit of improving once a week. If you are really brave schedule once a week and increase the days each week.

Just something to think about.

How to get your passion back- One Minute with Jay

When you are making positive improvements and then it suddenly feels like you hit a brick wall… and I mean hard.

This is a scary place to be because it’s like someone has deflated your balloon and you are back to square one. Back on the ground when you were flying high.

Here’s how to get your passion back: do it again. This may seem over simplistic but you get the energy to do the thing by doing the thing.

Passion is perseverance. So do it again. Do exactly what helped you to get results. The passion will resurface as you work through your setback.

And I believe this holds true for anything in your life as long as you love it.

The perfect example is the relationship with my mom. We are pretty close but it wasn’t always that way.

There were times where she didn’t understand my choices of girlfriends (neither did I but I will never admit that to her), hobbies, or even my profession.

This strained our relationship to the point where we didn’t speak for months. She’s stubborn and at that time…well genetics…you know? I had a little touch of that too.

But eventually I caved and we began to talk once a week for about 10 minutes. Over time that expanded until the relationship was repaired. We both had enough love remaining in our hearts to try again.

Maybe this is not your story but you have loss some passion towards your girlfriend, spouse, honey dip, boo thang.

I find that familiarity can also create distance in a relationship emotionally. Routine can make you less excited with seeing them everyday.

Especially when kids get involved. You know that as soon as you walk in from work you are on diaper duty or toy patrol.

With every other responsibility, you forget what brought you together…the love.

Maybe it’s time to take boo thang out on a date like you used too. Do it again.
