Jennifer Bricker is amazing, but something’s missing – It’s certainly not “heart.”

When you’re feeling stopped, or even slowed down by circumstances, check this out.

Here’s her amazing video.

Goodbye, Jim Rohn

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th December 2009

You may not have known Jim Rohn. He wasn’t part of the shooting community, he was a motivator, successful public speaker, well-known author and business mentor.

Jim Rohn, one of my favorite teachers and mentors, passed away this week after an 18-month battle with pulmonary fibrosis. Jim was a brilliant and inspiring business philosopher and one of life’s true gentlemen. I’ve heard him speak in person and listened to many of his recordings. Even though Jim is gone, you may wish to get to know his work, especially in these challenging times.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Jim:

“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go. ”

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”

“The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.”

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”

“If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.”

“One of the major reasons why people are not doing well is because they keep trying to get through the day. A more worthy challenge is to try to get from the day.”

“Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.”

“For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.”

“Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you.”

“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.”

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.”

“Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.”

Time for a thoughtful post

Magnified thoughts

Your thoughts are more powerful than you can ever realize.
For there is a part of you that faithfully puts each thought into action without question.

Your thoughts affect every part of you in ways much too numerous to ever keep track of. Each thought sets off a cascade of responses within you that cannot be stopped.

What you think affects where your life goes. For each thought is magnified and manifested through the whole of your existence.

Positive thinking empowers much more than your thoughts.
Negative thinking can dismantle every part of your life.

You always have a choice of what to think. When making that choice, always remember each thought has great power that continues long after the thought has passed from your consciousness.

Though thinking does not make it so, thinking makes you make it so. What you think becomes what you live.

You’d never hear a speech like this from Obama.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 6th October 2009

Wussy Weasel Wimpy Dude would never stand this strong, speak this clearly, be this direct, this straight. I sure miss Ronald Reagan.

This video is from the 1964 Republican Convention when Barry Goldwater was running for president. It still resonates with us today.

Ronald Reagan, 1964

What do YOU think about this speech?

Meet Ralph Marston – The Daily Motivator

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th September 2009

I’ve been getting the Daily Motivator every morning for several years.

Ralph Marston has a way of putting good ideas into words that make my days go better.  Maybe you could use a good start today.

Here’s today’s Daily Motivator:

Positive start

Start each day the way you wish to live it. Take positive control of your thoughts, your actions, your feelings and your attitude before some random occurrence ends up imposing its perspective on you.

Be open to the surprises while also being decisive and focused about what you intend to do. Get a few nice accomplishments under your belt early on, and set an effective, empowering pace for the whole day.

Right away, find some new thing for which to be thankful.
Your sincere gratitude will shine its light on the best of the day’s possibilities.

When you feel a worry coming, move quickly to transform it into creative action. If it seems that you’re beginning to be overwhelmed, focus intently on whatever is most important to you.

While the day is young, decide on some new way that you can make a meaningful difference for others. Then start taking the steps that will make it happen.

Give yourself some real power and effectiveness by beginning each day in a joyfully decisive and lovingly purposeful way.
And life grows richer with each passing hour.

Tucker’s got a “Secret.”

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 21st June 2009

Before Tucker designed the Texas Heritage he created an IWB design that’s been locked in the gun vault now for years.

It’s “The Secret.”

We’ve heard from customers who don’t tuck in their shirt over their carry gun and don’t need the special features of the Texas Heritage.

Just for them, and maybe for YOU, we’ve brought “The Secret” out of the dark place into the light of day.


The Secret is more compact than the Texas Heritage and has leather belt loops instead of belt clips, but it shares the good parts of the Texas Heritage.

It’s made from Hermann Oak premium leather, it’s comfortable and extremely concealable. It’s also value-priced.

It comes only in natural un-dyed leather, but you can order the belt loops in natural, brown or black to suit the belt you’re wearing. The sweatshield is standard.

Until July 1st, 2009, there’s a special sale price to introduce “The Secret” and a short 2-week turnaround from the time you place your order here.

Don’t wait until the price goes up July 1st.

It’s the Future, Stupid! A great blog post!

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 22nd March 2009

Recently I recommended a book called, “The Three Laws of Performance.”

In this current blog post, the authors address what we say about our current economic/financial/political situation. They suggest that we create an inspiring future to pull us forward instead of waiting for this to “be over.” Check it out.

The experience of life is given by the future we’re living into.

I’m the first to complain and gripe, but I do believe they have a point.
