It’s been said before by many, but almost doesn’t count.
Just as the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team looked to advance into the round of 16 in the World Cup on Sunday, it came to a crushing halt. It was a great effort following halftime when they were down 1-0 to come back and take the lead in the 80th minute at 2-1.
Dr. Joey Faucette
Do you see the obvious?
Someone called me recently and said that he’d read one of my books, that he’d really enjoyed it, and had started listening to his own life.
“What’s going in your life now that you’re listening to?” I asked him.
“Well,” he said, “just the other day I went to a new service station in town. It’s one of those pay-at-the-pumps places. I put my credit card in okay, but I couldn’t make the pump come on.
“So I went inside and asked the cashier what to do. She said for me to press the PRESS HERE button.
“When I went back to the pump, there it was in huge letters, PRESS HERE. I did, and the pump came on and everything was great…
“…except I felt really dumb after missing that sign. But then I said to myself, ‘Hey, Dr. Joey said to listen to life and make a positive life.’ So I did.
“And I realized that’s what listening to life is all about. Life teaches us everything we need to know and it’s so obvious, but we miss it. That’s why listening is so important.”
See the obvious as you Work Positive and Live Positive today.

The mornings are still crisp and the days are not yet encircled with oppressive humidity. It really is a great time of year to do anything outside. While I am enjoying fishing, I also am already locating the places I will hang a tree stand in preparation for deer season. If I wait until the summer months I will only be able to endure short stints outside. There is a small window of opportunity available before I will have to pay the price of being in the bubble of the sweltering heat.
