Inside Coach Rav’s Head

· Are you willing to give things up to help others?

· A huge challenge each of us is confronted with throughout our entire life is deciding who and what to believe.

· Things we believe to be true may not in fact be true.

· One must learn to trust evidence, truth, facts and reasoning. Further, to distrust assumptions, opinions, blind faith and fear.

· Never lose sight of common sense in all of our speculations.

· The best way to serve God is to do good to others.

· Every time we make contact with a person, we have the ability to make their day better or worse…make it better.

· Be one of those persons who lives a purpose filled life.

· Once a week, I spend an hour removing the excess baggage from my life.

· Few people like change, yet the only thing constant in our world is change.

· We all like to believe we are in control of our lives. We don’t like being told what to do, It’s only natural.

· Learning requires feedback in order for performance to improve.

· We live in an imperfect world, yet we get up each day and do our part to make it better.
