Dragon Bites - Gettin' Lucky

Read Show Notes

Welcome Dragons, to the last episode of 2019. With 2019 hot on our heels & new beginnings in 2020, I thought it would be a good time to talk about being & getting "lucky" This is something people have called me for as long as I can remember, and it continues to this very day (ask my wife about Monopoly or playing heads up Texas Hold 'Em sometime). I explain some of my methodology on how to get "lucky" in this episode, which you can also read here --> Being Lucky - This may be one of the shorter episodes, however, if taken to heart, it might be one of the most important.

Dragon Bites - Action = Success

Read Show Notes

As the new year is nearly upon us, we tend to start looking to the future. We start to look to the hope of a fresh start, the anticipation of a new year where we can mentally make a commitment to starting with a fresh slate. We can envision all the good & wonderful things & moments that await us. However, without this one little thing, we will find ourselves right back here at the same time next year. Action = Success on today's Dragon Bites discusses how to make your dreams come true in the following years. Remember, you might be plain. You might be ordinary. But you are a Dragon!

Dragon Bites - I'll Do My Best, I Will

Read Show Notes

Welcome back dragons! Today's episode is going to be considerably shorter than most of our PODcasts as we go through the holidays & the rest of the year. Sometimes what we say & how we say it make a big difference in our lives. Today's Dragon Bites episode comes from the article on our website - I'll Do My Best, I Will - and is, I believe, our second installment of Dragon Bites to be on the PODcast. Think or it like an audio book for the Plain Ordinary Dragon website. I hope you enjoy this thought process to start your week off right!

About the Podcast

Plain Ordinary Dragon
The PODcast - A Philosophy Driven Life
Plain Ordinary Dragon was originally born as a concept back in 2006, while I was going through the Dale Carnegie class “How to Win Friends and Influence People”. During one of the exercises, I came to realize just how amazing each and every person in the class was, if, I took the time to really get to know & understand them. Not just the folks who have accomplished impressive feats, built businesses, hiked the Appalachian Trail, or participated in historic events, but the single mom who has overcome a deck of life stacked against her to successfully stand on her own terms or the woman who lost her family in 9/11 or, You.

While this may not be a radical idea, it was an enlightening one for me. To understand, everyone who we meet or pass by, has an amazing story – or truth – we can learn from, or can enrich our lives, is inspirational & empowering. Once we understand how special each one of us is, we begin to understand how amazing we ourselves truly are. We begin to understand the power we hold. We begin to be able to access it & use it to improve our lives & the lives of those we come into contact with each day.

No matter how plain, no matter how ordinary, we are Dragons. And dragons are beautiful. Dragons are powerful. These mystical creatures, we are, have talents & gifts we have yet to fully comprehend, let alone master.

I’m just a plain ordinary dragon, but I’m strong & powerful beyond measure.

You may be just a plain ordinary dragon, but you are beautiful & worthy in your own way.

We may be plain ordinary dragons but we are amazing creatures.

Our purpose at POD is to help you to discover, uncover & understand how amazing and special you really are, then apply it to your life with gratitude and work ever toward mastery of yourself so you can choose to create the life you envision. The life you are meant to live.

You are unique. You are the only one of you. No one else can be you. No one else can do the things you do, & that’s intrinsically valuable.

We need you. We need your voice. It’s the only one able to share your truth with a world desperate to hear it.

Dragons, we welcome you!
