Rodgers Speaks recently presented to the residents of the Crosspoint Transitional Facility, which is a faith based halfway house for men who are transitioning from incarceration. We used the analogy of a sports season as a comparison to what we experience in seasons in our lives. They were a great audience!

I was blessed this week with the opportunity to be master of ceremonies and presenter at the 5th Annual Men’s Conference at San Antonio College. It was an awesome experience to see a diverse group of men come together to gain knowledge and discuss how we can make a difference!

Each of these performers are considered all time greats in their respective fields. However, they all were not great on day 1 or even day 100. They all had to fight through rejections, injuries, emotions, etc. The road to success has many potholes and detours, but you can get to your destination!

I was blessed with the opportunity to discuss the Every Kid Deserves a Book fundraiser on Daytime at 9 on KABB Fox29 here in San Antonio. You can go to https://www.gofundme.com/readingforkids to support the fundraiser.

Happy New Year’s everyone!  The New Year brings with it an opportunity to start anew.  In our culture, it is quite common to make New Year’s resolutions.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a resolution as “the act of finding an answer or solution to a conflict, problem, etc.”  A resolution is basically a goal.  I think it is great that people use the New Year to make resolutions.  Having goals for oneself is always encouraged.  People relate well to cycles; a new year is essentially the natural beginning of a cycle, thus a relatively convenient time to set goals.  Obviously, we should not confine resolutions or goals to New Year’s Day.  We should all be in a state of continually developing and progressing ourselves.

We are all aware of the ease of making a goal or resolution compared to the challenge of actually sticking with them.  I feel our resolutions should focus more on our process or progress toward a goal as opposed to the goal itself. Notice that I say progress.  Progress indicates positive, consistent actions toward an expectation or goal.   We have a much greater likelihood of keeping our resolutions, no matter when they are made, if we are focused more on the consistent actions to reach a goal.  Consistency in our actions leads to growing confidence, which strengthens our resolve in progressing toward our goals. We must have resolve in our resolutions.   Achieving success is a process and not an event!
