The Daily Echo: Never Quit…. July 25, 2017

July 25, 2017

How often have you heard that???? I think anyone involved in sports growing up must have heard a coach over and over again chime in with those words. As I have aged I have come to realize that when quitting becomes easy I really DON’T want it bad enough. Understands IF you continue to FAIL at one part of your life you must realize you need to re-evaluate HOW BAD YOU WANT TO CHANGE… Ever week I have someone sitting in my office with a desire to lose weight. If they are not filled with the PAIN of their current condition THEY will odds on NOT lose that weight. The PAIN of our current condition must be high enough to allow us in the moment of struggle to continue on. It is hard to admit WHY we continue to miss the GOAL or the mark we set every year. It is so much easier to blame something other than ourselves for ending up in the same place year after year. The work DECIDE if we look at it’s origin means to “cut off” meaning once we truly DECIDE we have “burned the ships” and there is no retreat. As you approach this week, month, and year ask those really tough questions only you can answer. Find out why it is you are not progressing with those Goals in life you keep making year after year.

The Daily Echo: The American Soldier…. July 4, 2017

July 4, 2017

Most of the US woke up a bit late today as we celebrate the 4th of July. For many that means a day off the normal work load. That freedom and the countless others we have are because of our American men and women and their families. Many of them did not get up late today. They can’t call in sick or take many of the holidays we take for granted. How often do we take these holidays for granted by using them to see how much beer we can consume? Do we take even a minute and read about a true American Hero or take time to educate our children about the blessing we all have by living in this country. I feature on the echo today American Soldier by Toby Keith. I think it portrays my feelings and gratitude for these incredible men and women. How blessed I am to have been born in the country and reap daily of the blessings it offers me. Thank you for your endless service.

The Daily Echo: Behold Thy Mother…. May 14, 2017

May 14, 2017

On this Mother’s Day 2017 we celebrate my favorite people in this world. No greater love has this world seen aside from that of our Savior than that of a Mother. My life has been blessed with almost 51 years of that unconditional love from my sweet mother. Her life has been more about me (us) than it ever has been about her. I have watched my sweet wife for almost 30 years follow the example of her sweet mother in loving with that same love. As I have enjoyed the the awesomeness of being a grandfather (far far) I have watched my sweet daughter in law naturally become a near perfect mother, and currently watching my sweet daughter mother with all the love she can a soon to be born little one. Why is it that these women all over the world can put aside all selfish desires and do more for us than we can for ourselves? Let us all try a little harder to not only recognize Mothers for being the single greatest profession in the world, but by showing them daily how grateful we are for them. Today’s short animated clip should be watched by everyone. Enjoy.

The Daily Echo: His “Love” and “Life” Live On. Echo Hall of Fame: D. Grant Lane…. April 20, 2017

April 20, 2017

The Daily Echo: His "Love" and "Life" Live On. Echo Hall of Fame. D. Grant Lane…. April 20, 2017 from Dr. Eric Lane on Vimeo.

Another inductee into The Echo Hall of Fame…. Another Hero of mine. My older Brother Grant passed on to bigger and better things February 18, 2011. Not even 50 years of age he accomplished more in his time than most could do in many life times. On today’s echo I try to depict the unconditional love of a Husband, Father, Pa (Grandfather), Son, Brother, Uncle, and friend. Anyone who knew Grant knew he was bigger than life. Yes literally he was a “Beast”… He could bench press a house, always sported a “six pack”, and by merely “staring you down” could cause instant fear to come over you…..But as big, strong, and tough as he was on the outside, he was gentle, loving, compassionate, kind, and forever charitable on the inside. Tears flowed easily from Grant. You might think real men don’t cry…. Well Grant was about the biggest man I knew. His heart was soft, tender, Christlike, and he was never afraid to show his emotions. Grant is missed by so many every day. With Grant by your side you alwasy knew you were protected. Not only by his mere physical size but because his empathy and compassion reached out to make sure you were O.K. I was the recipeint many times of late night calls where he had to check on his younger brother. He had a way of humbling you when you were a bit more cocky than you should be, and would be right there if you fell to pick you up and carry you back to safety. His grandchildren called him “Pa” and if you watch this video you will see….They were his achilles heel, his gold, his everything… How much Grant loved children. A special smile came across his face when he had the chance to spend tiime with children. At family gatherings many times Grant was not at the adult table. He had wondered off and was laughing, wrestling, and spoiling the children. And Lauri…..Well let’s just say Lauri was Grant’s Buttercup of “Princess Bride”… In fact occassionally I heard Grant say “As you wish”. I have had many close spiritual experices with Grant since he has passed. I have felt his influence in my own life. I have felt his love and pride in G-mo, Heidi, Darryn, and VER…. How proud he is of the way his children are living their lives. In tribute to this great man I can only hope this short video captures Grant in a way that will show his true colors. I finish the video with one of my all time favorites of Grant. That final picture embodies this “larger than life” man I am blessed to call my brother. Sure love him and can’t wait to see him again.
