There’s Gotta Be…

A better way.

When I first started wanting to write this blog I was searching for names there were many things I wanted to say, much of it was around statements like these:

There's Gotta Be a Better Way

There’s gotta be…a better way.
There’s gotta be…more to life.
There’s gotta be…a reason this is happening. 
There’s gotta be…a solution.
There’s gotta be…an answer. 

I’ve always believed that by taking the time to sit and think and write that the ideas would come, that the answers would appear and that I could figure it out. Sometimes the “Gotta Be’s” come from frustration, sometimes they come from hope, but they always come because something in my life just is not working the way I want it to.

So, the name of this blog was almost TheresGottaBe. (There’s gotta be…a great name for my blog?) As you know it ended up being ReadListenLive.com, which is a perfect name for what I want to share here.

Let me share a few ways that you (and me too!) can answer the questions our Gotta Be’s pose.

Welcome to Read Listen Live!

Welcome to Read Listen Live. I’m very excited to share some ideas and resources that I have learned and used, that others have used, and that you can use to change your life into one that brings you meaning and purpose, joy and hope, and success and blessings. I hope to help you, and help myself, because I’m on this journey too, make positive, lasting changes in all areas of your life from relationships to career to health or just doing it for yourself.

Many things from my past have come together to get to here. Years ago, I started listening to tapes (yep, years ago!) from people who were teaching ways improve one’s life in relationships and business and sales from people like Zig Ziglar and Tom Hopkins and Tony Ribbons.

I’ve always been a reader since grade school, when other kids would buy one or two books from the book club, I would buy 10 or 15 or 20, I would buy them with my own money, and I would read them! When I hit my teenage years and then adult, I started consuming non-fiction (I always think non-fake) books on subjects like sales or self improvement or relationships or “finding God”. I was always impressed that for less than $20 I could learn what it had taken someone years or even a lifetime to learn and they wanted to share that information with me. I knew too, that what you feed your mind and soul affects the output of your thoughts and hopes and dreams and life.
