Hello, everyone! I'm sorry it's been a while since I checked in. I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to check in and read my blogs. I will absolutely make a better effort to be more frequent and regular with posts.

It's been a good month or two. The PGA TOUR swept through Florida, with a stop in Mexico for the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship. The last stop before leaving Florida was the Arnold Palmer Invitational. It was the first one without the legendary Arnold Palmer on hand. What a remarkable person he was. Not only did he have a big game, but he had an enormous heart. What he did for people in need of help was simply unparalleled. Over the decades, his big heart helped more people than anyone could imagine. He always made time for everyone. He's a person I certainly admired and still try to be more like. I don't imagine I'll ever have quite the golf game he had, but I certainly try to do my part with people.

And, speaking of Arnold Palmer, I'm at the Masters this week, an event Palmer won four times. No place has a history of Palmer quite as deep as Augusta National. As I do every week, I am fortunate to stop and talk to lots of people. Those are the kinds of things that really sustain me.

Nothing does my heart more good than to see people making efforts to improve their lives. When I stop to talk to people, I hear so many wonderful stories of people working to get to a next level in their lives. That's what success is all about. It has nothing to do with what level you can make it to in a job or how big your bank account is. To me, it's all about the feelings of satisfaction with the little things in our lives. When you think about it, it's the little things that result in the big things. Think about it. I once heard a comedian say that one time a guy walked up to him on the corner and asked him for directions to a museum. The comedian gave him directions, to which the guy asked if it was too far to walk. The comedian's response was "Well, how much time do you have." Life is time. We are blessed with time. Some may have more of it than others, but it's what we do with what we have that makes all the difference. The strides one makes in only a small amount of given time is equally as significant as what one does with more time.

The bottom line is, we just have to keep moving, keep putting one foot in front of the other. After all, the real gauge of our successes are ourselves. We need to be proud of everything we do. Nothing is out of reach. Keep doing your best every day. At the very least, you'll sleep better at night!

Take it from me. I know people doubt my abilities sometimes. I understand that. Heck, I even had doctors tell me parents I would never walk. I've now walked more than anyone I know. While we may not always be able to do perfectly everything we want to do, it's the effort that makes the difference. It's the doing that counts, not the done. I hope that makes sense.

Thanks, again, for all your continued support. It's my hope that every single one of you lives according to your own hopes and dreams. Doing so will get you everywhere you want to be.

I wish you a great start to the summer and, as always, I look forward to seeing you down the road soon!!

All my best,

DJ
