tide
The world as you once knew it is not as it once was. I have discussed this very fact over and over again. Prior to 2007, things were all good but by the time 2008 rolled around this fact drastically changed and those lingering effects can still be felt today. They (mainstream media) say things are picking up but never put all your confidence in what they say.

But can these three things really be enhanced dramatically enough in order to accelerate positive production? Read More The Tide is Turning

Man I am HUNGRY! No, let’s be real, I am STARVING! I have to be the best. I have to be successful. I have to live the life I envision myself living.

Stop and think about it for a minute, have you really done everything in your own power to become successful? Most likely you attribute procrastination and the fiddling of your thumbs to hard work. You talk to a few people and put together a few documents thinking you are putting in a substantial effort of work. If you think I am speaking too harsh, do not be so sensitive.

It is said that you can do whatever you want to do as long as you put your mind to it; the problem is that such a statement seems like wishful thinking when most try to apply the notion. Just as it is said we all have the potential to be great but can that opinion be truthful for all of us? Read More Are You Living Up to Your Potential?

To put it plain and simple the replacement refs covering the NFL games are pretty much horrific, a complete embarrassment to the organization. Currently the NFL is in a lockout situation with the veteran refs who have years of experience covering NFL games and also have years of knowledge when it comes to rules and game play. The refs in place have no such experience or knowledge and it really shows when you are forced to watch these horribly called games. It is as if every week it gets worse and worse, leaving you puzzled in amazement as to how this debacle can continue to go on. Blatant calls that any fan can make seem to be blind to these replacements and this is even with them having the luxury of replay review. It seems like the refs want to outdo themselves on how much more inefficient and dumbfounded they can become. The whole occurring fiasco is a major distraction for the NFL and just continuous to further piss off fans, players and coaches. Read More Why You Do Not Want a NFL Ref Lockout Situation
