"How to go from Concept to Reality in Four Hours or Less"
Jumping and rolling all about
Trampoline tumbling; I figured it out
Love the high bars just twirling around
I know I can make it, with both feet to the ground
Jumping and cart wheeling from a standing position
So please just point me in the right direction
Lessons in gymnastic class are so much fun
Completing each level until I am done. —Joey Grunewald
"Day to day, individuals with courage will either elect to conquer the ordinary or be required to conquer the extraordinary. Either way, nature's forces will move on and new heroes will be standing tall in a world that is made better for all."—Cheri Lutton

By Steven Lutton
I love to play football for many reasons. For one, it is a great rush. I love practicing with my team to get ready for the next game. Then I love to win the game. Football is a great way to stay in shape and keep you from being lazy. It teaches you about sportsmanship and commitment. It also makes you keep your grades up so you can keep playing. Every time I step on the field, I am exhilarated. Football is the best sport there is. You have to think and respond, and then you get to make contact. None of the other sports out there are exactly like football. It’s not like some sports were your sprinting the whole time, or others where you don’t really get to run. In football, you play the game in short bursts.
There are a variety of positions to play in football. The difference between offense and defense makes a great balance. I have been playing football since I was a little guy in the Lafayette bobcat’s league, except then I played for Erie. I have always been waiting to play high school football, and now I am very proud and excited to be a part of Centaurus High School's Warriors Football Team.
I plan on playing all of the years I go here, and there is nothing that can stop that. I’m not the type that will get hurt and be afraid to play anymore. When I was a 12-year old, playing for Erie we were in the playoffs and the first game against Brighton Red, I twisted my ankle and had to go to the hospital. They thought it was broken, at first, and it felt like it. However, . . .
I am very excited to play with the Centaurus High School program, now into my second year and a new football season!

Third Tool - Reason
Tools for Courageous Leadership

Now that you have become 100% committed to your "Intent to Begin" a project or goal with passion and purpose, your power will fuel your body into motion once you unleash this very miraculous tool, enthusiasm. Yes, miraculous, as this word is derived from the early Greek word "en theos" which means "in God." Go ahead and try it. Feel the feeling that enthusiasm creates within you.

Recipe for Fresh Carrot Ginger Soup
Steve's Tip™: If you are a member, sign in to www.ccqh-leadershipclub.com and go to the Newsletters to read entire article in the Club Newsletter.
A number of years ago, I had a dilemna of too many carrots to go around for our family to eat as a side dish. In fact, I had too many to even give away to my neighbors. I gave it some thought, reminiscing about how much I enjoyed a carrot soup I had recently, while taking my wife out for dinner. Then, it came to me. Yes! I, too, can make a delicious gourmet soup, adding ginger and—voila! We will have another of Steve's Creations - from Soil to Skillet. So, there you have it, the beginnings of a new recipe that I am pleased to share with you now. My wife loves it, and it's so nourishing to boot.
