I spoke to a group recently, telling stories like this one while coaching them to listen to life. Later I saw a man from the audience in the restroom. He shook my hand firmly, looked me in the eye, and said, “Thank you for what you said. I really enjoyed it and you reminded me of something that I might have forgotten.” “What’s that?” I said. I love it when people tell me their stories. “Well,” he said, “when my wife and I were first married, she did something that irritated me. You see, my Mama raised me to always hang the toilet paper so that it fell under the roll. Well, my wife hung the toilet paper [...]

A few years ago, someone mailed an absentee ballot to the Broward County, Florida Election Board with a rare and expensive stamp on it. The famous “Inverted Jenny” stamp features a World War I-era airplane on it erroneously printed upside down. Its appraised value is about $200,000. The solution sounds simple enough—return it to the sender, right? Well, the envelope is in a box that by law can’t be opened. Plus the envelope has no return address on it. An anonymous fortune locked in a box isn’t worth much to anyone, is it? Do you have a fortune locked inside of you? Our world population is over 7 billion people yet, there’s only [...]

One of my nieces celebrated her 4th birthday a few years ago. She and her mom were going somewhere together in their van shortly after her birthday. And all of a sudden, she says to her mom, “Well, it’s day two.” “What do you mean, ‘It’s day two?’” the mom asked. And my niece replied, “It’s day two after my birthday, Mommy!” She reminds me of my grandfather in his later years. If he was 86 years old, he would say, “I’m in my 87th year.” Both my niece and my grandfather celebrated their birthdays by looking forward, excited not just by the day itself, but by the prospects of celebrating life in all of its [...]
