Bow Tie Monday

June 18, 2018

It’s Bow Tie Monday and since the weather is heating up I brought out the miniature sailboat for you today. For the ones that want a yacht you have to give it all you got. If Uncle Luke was with me right now I could hear him loud and clear “Let me hear you say Hayes we want some Bow Ties, Hayes we want some Bow Ties.” Then “Pop Your Collar Pop Pop Your Collar Homey, Pop Your Collar, Pop Pop Your Collar Homie.” Now “Wear a Bow Tie Hayes Made You, Wear a Bow Tie Hayes Made You.”

Shout to Luke for saving lives. In the 80’s we were not trying to kill each other we just wanted to dance and that inspired others to be a gymnast, choreographer or someone that went on to be a nutritionist with a degree in Exercise Science. With a positive mindset we can not only change our environment but also the world to keep people in shape and in position to keep their blood pressure, diabetes or cholesterol in check.

Thank you for using Football as a vehicle to help make a difference in the lives of youth on and off the field. I salute you LUKE (Life Up Kings Everyday).

Bow Tie Monday

June 4, 2018

Welcome to the Starwars edition of Bow Tie Monday where in order to make it you have to have the mindset of an ALIEN (Always Lift Individuals with Encouraging News) where dreams are lived. Believe that you can be a Luke Skywalker in the air or a successful Han Solopreneur where you use Chewbacca’s cousin Habakkuk to write down your vision and make it plain so that your Obi-Wan Kenobi Bryant killer instinct will kick in so even when you have a Darth Vader on your job or in your home the universe will stretch your mind and body with YODA (Yearning Opens Doors Ahead) so that you have R2 D2 (Relevant Resources and Daily Development) that always gives you C3PO (where you See 3 Possible Outcomes) which are Confidence, Consistency and Change. When you realize that you are a Star inside and out, the Wars that you have faced will give you the Confidence and Consistency to Change the world. #starwars
