We can’t go wrong with positive reinforcement …

Childhood Examples

Lately, rewarding myself helps ease the toughness of a rigorous project!

Adult Examples

Great timing since I just progressed onto my next series!

♪Happy ☼Birthday☼♫ to my Dad today!

Go, *Dallas Cowboys* this NFL ☼Sunday!

Cowboys Fans

Throwback: Papa Jun & I en route to our *Dallas Cowboys* game against the Philly Eagles during the ‘BOYS‘ first season at its new home field (then-Cowboys Stadium/now-AT&T Stadium)

Just like any fortunate child who has grown up with a father or paternal figure, I feel extremely †blessed† and grateful to still have mine as a constant part of my life.

Dad the DCC Fan

Throwback: Papa Jun & I have a good view of *America’s Team* and *America’s Sweethearts from 6 rows behind the end zone!

Papa Jun is one of the most well-rounded people who I know and admire:

Even as an adult, I still keep learning from my Dad, who always enlightens me everyday, through his example and his wisdom as a prayerful soon-to-be first-time grandfather with whom I attended Church today. Cheers, Pops!

Maligayang Bati, Papa Jun, at ♥Mahal♥ Kita!

For a 💡dose🍊 of motivation:

My 👓Must-See👀 💿DVDs📀

  

Get Coached is a collection💾 of 🎬segments🎥 from 🌠winning🏆 🏉football🏈 📣coaches📢

  • 4 NFL head coaches, including 2 Mikes ~ one (Singletary) who played for another Mike (Ditka) & the father (Buddy Ryan) of another featured coach (Rex Ryan), + another one (Sean Payton) who I actually reported on for one of my last doctoral classes
  • The Florida State Seminoles former coach (Bobby Bowden)

 

I also am including how their speeches🎤 ~ which are relevant not just in terms of athletic leadership, but 👔corporate💼 🏣business, as well ~ tie in with the 🌈exemplary💭 leadership theory that I’m exploring in my doctoral🎓 📜dissertation.

📢Cheers👏🏽 to 🏉NFL🏈 Preseason I 🎊2015🎉 👟kickoff!

On my way to SA yesterday 🚘

Fast & Furious 🏁 * Full Force 💥 * Family 👪 * Friendship 🌈

The sky is the limit in Furious 7 as the gang take on sworn enemy Shaw ~ living by their mantra: 💭
 
Ride or Die 👊
  
As Turetto would say:
 

I have a group of racers, NOT killers. 🔫

    

  

Super Car Pre-Race🚗 Paraphrase🌇 [not exact lines]
  • Brian (the late, great Paul Walker): $3.4 million, goes 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, & there are only 7 in the world. 🌏
  • Dom (Vin Diesel): You can’t lock up a beast. 🐯 

  

Leadership Lessons [since I study and teach it]

Roman (Tyrese Gibson) is NOT an effective leader because 

  • insists on making decisions ~ authoritative 
  • claims to delegate ~ laissez faire = lazy 
  • stays on aircraft✈️ while the rest of his crew go airborne🚀 ~ lack of setting an example 

  

  

Speaking of leadership, the opening feature that Edwin and I watched at the Drive-In before our main event also showed lessons:

 

   Home 🏡 

 

This animation actually starred the vocals of actors Jon Parsons (Sheldon Cooper from CBS’ Big Bang Theory) and Steve Martin, plus singer-actresses Rihanna and J-Lo! 🗼 

Without revealing too much {I wouldn’t want to spoil it for the kiddos}, a seemingly-unlikely character eventually becomes an emerged leader whom his purple peers look up to over their appointed leader after showing them how valuable friendship (pink) and happiness (orange) can be! Plus, who doesn’t like to dance? 💃

Side note: Although F7 already has been out on the 🎬big screen🎥 for almost four solid weeks, this has been my first time to fit it into my schedule. Definitely. Worth. The. Wait. 🎦

Una más: Both of these aforementioned films featured exotic babes with curly ringlets: Home starred a native of Barbados who was a 😻cat🐈 mama (Happy Early Mother’s Day💐 to us as well), and Furious 7 had a hot hacker with a sizzling accent! Underlying theme of the night! 🌠🌙🌌
