Couldn’t We All Use Some Therapy

Couldn’t We All Use Some Therapy

Tracey Jones
Everyone should be in therapy. It’s good for the body, mind, and soul. It helps unpack baggage and enables us to deconstruct the mysteries that vex us in life. In The Three Therapies of Life, Charlie “Tremendous” Jones shares practical and applicable ways to heal yourself so you can continue to impact others and change lives. I uncovered this material from a DVD I found. It was recorded back in the ’90s when my father was in his heyday (which was technically every day). In this message, he spoke to an audience of fellow speakers and presenters at the National Speakers Association (NSA). His words rang truer to my ears and heart than they ever had before. I guess I needed some “Tremendous” therapy. Read more...
Make a Decision; Make It Yours; Die By It

Make a Decision; Make It Yours; Die By It

Tracey Jones
A tremendous life is built on tremendous decisions. These life decisions have an integrative effect; the choices we make open or close the doors to other opportunities and future possibilities. So we need to make these cornerstone decisions well to build as solid a foundation as possible. We need to make these critical decisions the right way. My father said, “Decision making is a fact of life, just like breathing. That’s what decision making really is.” The key to making the right decisions in life is to make a decision, make it yours, and die by it. Getting these decisions right doesn't necessarily make life more manageable, but it does make it more real, and that's what it's all about. Read more...
It's Not Rude to Be Shrewd

It's Not Rude to Be Shrewd

Tracey Jones
My father, the late, great, book evangelist Charlie "Tremendous" Jones declared the more books he gave away, the richer he became. It seems like quite the paradox in today's cutthroat world of take or be taken. Was my father a sucker? Absolutely not. He was embodied by a great word we tend to look upon with disdain; he was shrewd... read more
Excited or Entrenched

Excited or Entrenched

Tracey Jones
The landscape of our lives is constantly changing which wreaks a great deal of havoc on humans who would often rather die than change. We lose relationships and our health, we miss once in a lifetime and repeated opportunities, yet we continue to blame everyone but ourselves.
Without Ambition, We Are All Butt Dust

Without Ambition, We Are All Butt Dust

Tracey Jones
Hello tremendous tribe! Although school is out for summer, yours truly has been up to her eyeballs in writing and rewriting my dissertation research on the Theory of Motivation. I interviewed 28 individuals who went through a merger, which turned into a crisis. Part of this study is about resiliency. If you are an innately resilient person, external events don't matter much. You can do a merger a day, no matter how chaotic, and remain grounded. If you're not resilient, it’s all bad, no matter the reality. Anytime we are faced with something outside our comfort zone, we have two options: to become excited or to become entrenched.
Entremanureship

Entremanureship

Tracey Jones
Ah, entrepreneurship—the opportunity to be your own boss, to come to work when you want, to not ever have to deal with office politics, to make millions and never even had to change out of your jammies. Over ten years ago I transitioned out of the soul-sucking, life stifling world of bureaucracies to run through the liberating fields of entrepreneurship.

Do You Believe in 2019?

Tracey Jones
So, this year, what are you going to make yourself into? Whatever it is, you’ll have to believe it with all your being and own it through and through. Events don’t make us, our responses do.
The Most Important Thing in 2018

The Most Important Thing in 2018

Tracey Jones

“The common denominator of success—the secret of success of every person who has ever been successful—lies in the fact that he or she formed the habit of doing things that failures don't like to do. It's just as true as it sounds and it's just as simple as it seems.”

Ten Years Later…. Life is Still Tremendous by Gloria B. Jones

Tracey Jones
Through even the hard times and the changes we see with our families and everything around us, we still must be hopeful and go forward and take each day at a time. At ninety-one years of age, I have genuinely found that this is the path to living a tremendous life. Thank you to everyone for the continued support, encouragement, and prayers. Charles' vast network of speakers has meant the world to me. He and I shared many beautiful times with The Speakers Roundtable and the Veterans Speakers. Their love and support allow me to feel still so connected. May God richly bless you all!
The Tremendous Power of Staying Power

The Tremendous Power of Staying Power

Tracey Jones

Becoming the next version of tremendousness is simple: Spark your willpower; fuel your staying power; and watch your tremendous power become a reality. Write down what you want to do with your week, your month, your year, your life, then ask yourself the two follow-on questions. Once you can answer yes to both, add healthy doses of people, books, prayer, self-discipline, and self-belief, and you’ll be on the path to a tremendous transformation.



Lead Like a Tree

Lead Like a Tree

Tracey Jones

As leaders, we wear many hats. We are optimists, encouragers, ethicists, decision-makers, saviors, and sense-makers. So just like the mighty forests, we must do the same for ourselves and our organization. We need to be intentional about who we allow in our forest. After all, you cannot get it right without the right people. We need to stay nourished as well because leading others, although incredibly uplifting, can also be unbelievably draining. We must deal with bureaucracies, laws, budgets, attitudes, and global issues. To stay above the fray, we need to make sure our roots go deep; so deep that when the winds of change or fires of crisis come into our forest, we can not only survive, but thrive.
