Today I share a personal story about a recent podcast rating that I received. What do you do when good doesn’t feel good? How do we redefine great?

It’s about redefining GOOD and great. Good is part of great.

So how do you go from good to great?

Human nature has this way of making us focus on the one “good” versus all the great. Why is that?

Do you catch yourself doing this often in your own life?

When it’s good, does it have to be great?

What would make it great?

We look at our lives, and oftentimes forget to be grateful for the great because we’re focusing on the good.

OR we forget to be grateful for the good because we’re comparing it to GREAT (or our definition of what we think GREAT “should be.”)

TRUTH is what makes “GREAT.”

Feedback is good, but remember it’s only FEEDBACK.

Look at what you desire, and clearly define (redefine) what would make it great for you.

Let’s not forget the 5-Star experiences because we’re focusing on the 4-Star ones, nor overlook the 4-Star ones because we’re comparing them to others.

Does better make BEST? Does it make GREAT?


Knowing the TRUTH does.

It’s what allows us to live in freedom. And freedom is both good AND great!
