John Duffy's Personal Ramblings - Ireland Trip

We leave today for a flight to Dublin and a drive across Ireland to County Mayo on the West Coast of Ireland. I am making my 3rd trip to Ireland to visit my family in Glanduff on the West Coast of Ireland. Since I have been connected with my family I have made it a must to connect my family and daughter with her family in Ireland and around the world. I am so blessed to find my family and to be able to visit and discover my history and roots.....

Thought For the Day - What's Most Important in Life

I repost this as I take another journey to Ireland to see my Aunt Maggie and all my relatives. I totally agree with her. What's most important in life. Your health, your survival, your family, your friends and your purpose.

Thought For the Day - Rise Above the Challenges

‎"Despite all the adversity... We still rise above all the challenges."


Or maybe because of the adversity it makes us stronger and more capable. My life has been full of adversity and I don't believe I would wish for anything different. I've always liked the quote "the stronger the wind the stronger the trees." I don't look for a life without problems, challenges and adversity but use them as a well to grow stronger and overcome them.

Thought For the Day - Responsibility

"The turning point for me ... was realizing I was responsible for my own life"

-- Brian Tracy

My turning point was at a Tony Robbins seminar in 1989 when I realized the same exact thing. I was 100% responsible for my life and the results I was getting. My life changed for the better when I understood that and made the shift in how I showed up in life.

Happy 4th of July

I celebrate this 4th of July appreciating the privilege of living in a free country. My parents both sailed past the Statue of Liberty on their way to Ellis Island in 1928 from Ireland. They came to America for a better life and gave their children that dream. I'm proud to be an American - not perfect by a long shot but still the greatest place in the world to live. Take a moment to reflect on all the blessings we have and rediscover the greatness of America. Our Declaration of Independence - life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness sums it up....

Happy 4th of July.
