Posted Oct 20, 2016 by Mathieu Chiasson

Quote I’m pondering

"Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing." - Vince Lombardi

Following this he also states...

"Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing." - Vince Lombardi

What kind of habits do you have? Winning or losing?

Article of the week

Here's a short list, probably a reminder, of what it takes to build good character. Only 6 simple things but as with everything Jim Rohn teaches, simple in concept doesn't mean simple in execution.

Video of the week

I introduced Neil Strauss last week with a post about love vs our culture. Here's a Tweet he posted (you can click on the link and watch the video even if you're not on Twitter) this week for World Mental Health Day. He speaks for a better awareness of psychological health as he compares statistics on various physical and psychological problems in our society.

I, for one, believe mental and psychological health is misunderstood by our society. Watch this short 2 minutes video.

From Twitter: "It's time we take our emotional & psychological health as seriously as our physical health & intellectual education #worldmentalhealthday."

From Instagram: Today is #worldmentalhealthday. From the start of life, we see physicians, dentists, and teachers - it's time we start taking our emotional & psychological health just as seriously. Healthy parenting is the key to world peace.
