When you think of being on the brink, where does your mind take you?
Does it take you to a place of fear; a vision of failure?
Do you retreat? Do you run?
Do you freeze, perhaps panic?
Or when that brink moment finds you, will you embrace it and conquer it and find the greatness inside?
When it seems impossible, how do you push forward against great odds? How is it that some people intuitively understand the gravity of the decision they’re about to make? It can be the brink of courage, the brink of death just before life, the brink of victim turned victor, the brink of societal change, the brink of peace in the world. The journey to get to the BRINK can be unpredictable, but knowing you’re at the BRINK – is the sign of greatness!
I don’t know if everyone on earth has greatness in time of danger, or in times when heroic courage is called for. I do believe it is in each one of us. The choice to embrace and conquer the brink, is truly a gift.
We are bombarded day in and day out with bad news, upsetting stories, lies and deception. Yet every day there are ordinary people doing extraordinary things. There are heroes amongst us in so many ways. There are people risking everything to help others. Remember the heroes of 911, or the man in the Waffle House. There are people who have physical or mental disabilities that persist and accomplish great feats. There are people giving gifts of kindness to others rather than turning their back. Heroes are as diverse as humanity, and they rise to the occasion when many would not, or could not. They get to the brink, and take the leap.
To celebrate good news, to honor good people, to be in awe at what one person can accomplish, too bear witness to heroic courage, to inspire and to share the best in humanity, The Brink of Greatness was created.
There are stories like Kristin Armstrong being the first woman to win three gold medals in cycling despite having to take years off for multiple hip surgeries. An inspirational story about an aircraft controller in the midst of an earthquake staying in a crumbling control tower to be sure a jet was able to take off, saving many lives. Jeff Evans, when faced with an inferno in the Camp Fires in California, he not only survives but rescues many of the dogs left behind. And so many more stories that focus on the good of humanity.
On my talk show on America Out Loud, Talking While Married, I am passionate about finding heroes amongst us, good news, and good people. I am now privileged to expand that passion to The Brink of Greatness.
I look forward to finding those stories and people that have stepped up, and made the leap when on the brink. I have so many now and because there is greatness in the human spirit, there are so many more. To share good news, to celebrate the goodness in us, to showcase heroic courage, to illuminate the best in us and inspire each of us, and when faced with that moment in life, to leap. 
To take a moment each day to celebrate with, cry with, be in amazement with these people stepping up to greatness will be a welcome respite from the bad news media. The stories are heartwarming, heartrending, poignant, joyous, emotional, and stunning. 
Please join me, Linda Martinelli, as we celebrate the best of humanity at The Brink of Greatness.

The 7 Golden Rules to arrive at the Brink of Greatness

1 – Your boundaries are 100% self-imposed by you. Be in charge of your own thoughts.
2 – Never settle for an average idea. Be exceptional and bold in your thinking and desires.
3 – Don’t follow, LEAD. Find alternative methods to break through the clutter.
4 – Question everything, the obvious and the not-so-obvious. What if? How come? Maybe, just maybe?
5 – Uniqueness is the golden rule. If everyone else is doing it, then don’t.
6 – Don’t panic when the idea seems absurd. Absurdity is oxygen for high flyers.
7 – Persistency. Take your idea to next-level thinking–all the way to the Brink of Greatness.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
