A Walking Miracle - June Rikard
In this episode we listen to the words of June Rikard, a living, walking miracle. This is from a 2006 recording when June spoke to a crowd in Sumter, South Carolina. June and her husband George have been lifelong friends of mine, and if we had a week, I still could not tell you all that June has been through. June was a marathon runner and amazing athlete whose life was turned upside down after a difficult cancer diagnosis almost 30 years ago. Medical experts can't explain why June is here today after surviving nine cancers, but June most certainly can - in one word...God! June is here, her life is not perfect, but she is not complaining. She is a superhero and George is her sidekick. June radiates with beauty from the inside out, and you have to see it in person to really appreciate who this amazing person is, and why her story should be shouted from the mountains. You don't want to miss this one. Gather everyone around you and grab a box of tissues, you are about to be inspired by an amazing woman of faith and courage who knows the power of God first hand. Thanks for joining us today.

Leadership in times of Stress
In today's podcast, we discuss Leadership in times of Stress. There is a lot going on around the country and around the world right now and most people are wondering where we go from here. In times of trouble, we turn to God and to leaders who help put things into perspective, who look for calm and not chaos. We need leaders at home, in businesses and in every aspect of life, to step up to the plate, and that's where you come in. Be a leader today in your home, and wherever you may be. Until next week...

Life Moments - Power Connections
In today's episode we discuss Power Connections which is where (or who) we go to to get a power boost in our lives. Too many people go to places where there is no power, places, and people who actually drain them and leave them feeling worse than they did before. There are negative and positive paths for power connections and we need to recognize which paths we are taking when life gets a bit confusing or things are not going the way we expected them to go. Find positive power sources in faith, family, and friends, and walk away from those things and people who drain you of power. Seek wisdom and positivity in your life and plug into the things and the people who can help you become the best person you can be. Power yourself up today! Until next week... Disclosure: We are not talking about electricity, but about the power found in faith, family, and friends and pursuing positive ventures which lead to wisdom and a greater purpose in life.

Life Moments - A Mindset of Success
In today's podcast, we discuss how success is defined and how to develop A Mindset of Success in life. Far too many people are allowing society, media, movies, and 'influencers' to define success for them. Success for so many means cars, houses, and money. Money won't buy you happiness and that is not the kind of success that we are talking about on today's podcast. Success in life is living a life of gratitude and contentment and being the best person that you can be. We are constantly looking for ways to validate who we are, and people to validate us. We have already been validated by God, so what other opinions really matter? Exactly! Perhaps today may be a good day to check out the man (or woman) in the mirror. Ask yourself who you are and if you are being the best person you can be. Success is about touching lives. Success is about connecting (real connections) with people. Success lives on the inside and not on the surface. Put your mindset of success to work today...You will be glad you did. Until next week...

Life Moments - Coming Out of Your Shell
Today's podcast (LM48) is titled Coming Out of Your Shell, and as you may have guessed the topic centers on helping those who want to develop a bit more openness and confidence when dealing with others. Now, this podcast is intended to help those who WANT to project more approachability and friendliness. This is not an attempt to get all of the shell dwellers to come out, although the air is fine out here:) I am often asked by those I meet to help them in this area, so I wanted to offer some very simple advice on the topic (which is the foundation for all successful human to human encounters). So, if you are someone who wants to project more openness and friendliness this podcast is for you! If you want a lot more information on today's topic, pick up a copy of my latest book First Impressions which is available at all online book retailers. Thanks for joining us. Until next week...

Life Moments - The Value of True Friendships
In today's podcast, we discuss The Value of True Friendships. In this world of social media overload, many cherished words have been hijacked to include the word 'friend'. A friend and a social media 'connection' are two totally different concepts. Being a true friend takes effort, and sometimes a lot of effort. Besides faith and family, a friend should be no more than third in your line of importance. Don't forget to value your friends and whatever you do, STAY CONNECTED WITH YOUR FRIENDS! Don't give up on them. Pick up the phone today and call a friend, or better yet go visit a friend. You will be glad you did. Hope you have a great weekend. Until next week...

Life Moments - The Leadership Crisis
In today's episode, we discuss The Leadership Crisis that seems to be plaguing this country right now. We discuss where the foundation for leadership begins, which is in the home. We as parents need to take great responsibility to raise kids who can make a difference in the world they live in. It all starts at home and the message is clear to mom and dad; 'This one is on us.' We also discuss leadership within the workplace, and the need to strive for excellence in all that we do. And to our younger generation, we encourage them to become leaders at an early age, to stand up for what is right and to make good decisions in their lives. Leadership...Something we need a lot more of. Thanks for joining us today! Until next week...

In business, we must communicate, and as a leader, communication is so essential. Communication...It's a good thing! Thanks for joining us today. Until next week...

Life Moments - Parenting with John Kay
In today's podcast (LM-43), we discuss parenting (aka Child Rearing) with our special guest Mr. John Kay. John is the father of two amazing and successful girls and he and his wife (Jeannie) are definitely 'expert parents' when it comes to raising kids into successful and happy adults. John is a man of few words, but when he speaks the words are always words of wisdom. We will be discussing the necessity of proactive parenting and leading your kids on a path that leads to successful adulthood. John Kay is the IT Director for Trumbull Services based out of Hartford, CT. He is a graduate of Anderson College and Coastal Carolina College, where he was a standout NCAA D-1 baseball player. John and his wife can usually be found in either Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Atlanta, Georgia or Sumter, South Carolina.

Life Moments - Where Are You Today in Life?
LM-42 Where Are You in Life Today? In today's podcast, we discuss the question 'where are you today in life?' We all have ups and downs in life and at times life can seem a bit overwhelming. We all have good times and then times where we seem to hit rock bottom. Our response and our attitudes during these times will often help to determine the outcome. Do we develop a bad attitude, or get jaded towards life or people? Hopefully, we have healthy coping mechanisms that kick into action when we run into life's obstacles, and we are able to persevere and move forward. Faith, family, and friends are always a welcome refuge when times get tough. If you need professional help or counseling seek it. Don't let your environment or any other factor put a damper on your ability to live life courageously and with an attitude of gratitude. Live life with a purpose and help as many as you can along the way. Until next week... Terry's Books on Amazon (Click Here)

Life Moments - Podcast # 37 - Unintended Consequences
In today's podcast, we will be discussing Unintended Consequences which occur when we deal with the people around us, especially those we are encountering for the first time. It is always worth repeating that we need to consider the emotional responses of others that we meet and deal with in every aspect of our lives. People want to be treated well and with respect, and too often we forget that, and we reap the consequences of our actions (or projections). As I have said many times, 'people have emotions and emotions drive people to action'. This is something we should keep in mind when dealing with our fellow humans. Smile, be kind and be the best person you can be everywhere you go, and with everyone that you meet.
