The Will to Win

The Will to Win

Are you willing to be extraordinary? Sounds like a loaded question, doesn't it?  Well, it's not. It's actually a question that you need to ask yourself and answer, if you have any desire to become the greatest, happiest, and most successful version of YOU that's possible. Your willingness and your will power both have a whole lot to do with it. Perseverance, determination, guts, resolution, tenacity, desire and will power are the fuels that run the engine which will power you to accomplish anything you can imagine.  Without [...]

You’re In There Somewhere

You’re In There Somewhere

As I sit here typing on my computer, I realize that I'm becoming one of them. I'm watching TV, listening to an iPod, I have Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus open in separate windows on my desk top, I'm monitoring my laptop, and I'm texting on my phone.  Hang on...okay...just had to finish that text. Seriously, have I lost my freakin' mind? Before you answer that question, check out your own surroundings and make sure you haven't become one of them, too.  How about it?  How many masters are you currently serving? They've been [...]

Some Words for Life

Some Words for Life

Every so often I like to share an inspirational or motivational poem that I come across, hoping that you will find it to be both timely and purposeful.  I know for me, a great quote or a moving poem really motivates me to reflect on my life and look inside myself for the opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes the words can be somewhat trivial, but even so, there is often a hidden gem in the midst of them which can, if applied, become the catalyst for amazing transformation.  It sounds a little kooky, I know, but words [...]

Your Every Day To-Do List

Your Every Day To-Do List

How would you like to hear about a four step process to achieving anything you want in your life?  Sounds pretty good, right? Well, I will warn you; it sounds so ridiculously simple, that your first inclination will be to dismiss it as trivial and silly. You may also think that it sounds like the stuff in fairy tales.. I might remind you though, in fairy tales, they all live happily ever after... Seriously, you will read this and do one of three things; you will either A. Dismiss it as dumb and move on, B. Think it sounds like [...]

Why Phil Jackson is the Best

Why Phil Jackson is the Best

When the NBA season came to an unceremonious end for the Los Angeles Lakers last weekend, all of the attention turned to their Hall of Fame head coach, Phil Jackson.  Jackson has announced that he is likely retiring from coaching basketball, at least for now, and so the talk of his career achievements were in all of the sports headlines. Most NBA fans believe that Phil Jackson is one of the greatest coaches of all time.  His 11 NBA World Championships are the most all-time by any coach, and in age of free agency where there seems to be [...]

A Few Words About Procrastination

A Few Words About Procrastination

When I talk to people about their biggest challenges as it relates to staying focused on what they want to accomplish in their lives, invariably, the topic of time management or procrastination rears its ugly head. And it makes perfect sense that procrastinating is what will cause more dreams to go by the way side than any other habit anyone could possibly form.  After all, the very act of procrastinating means that you or I are wasting time.  Really, what you end up wasting is opportunity, which exists all around  you, every day, woven [...]

It’s All About You

It’s All About You

"In the high school halls, in the shopping malls, be cool or be cast out, In the basement bars, in the backs of cars, conform or be cast out" - lyrics from "Subdivisions" by Rush The heavy burden to conform to the perceived  "norm" starts at a very early age for all of us. Groups of kids band together, forming cliques with those whom they share the most in common with, and often, the most special or gifted of these individuals ends up standing out as so completely different from their peers, that they naturally become the target [...]

Dream Big, Live Big

Dream Big, Live Big

If you believe in yourself and believe that you are worthy, whatever you focus on with all of your mind and pursue with all of your heart, you will achieve. I believe that to be the absolute truth. I think that you can be whatever you want to be in this life.  You can do whatever you want to do, and you can have whatever you want to have.  You just have to believe that and be willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen. You've probably heard me write at least a few times about not quitting.  And that is my ultimate nutshell [...]

Standards and Procedures

Standards and Procedures

Okay, I'm going to assume that you have a desire to be as successful as possible in this life.  If so, I'm also going to assume that you have some goals for yourself.  However, I won't assume that you are absolutely committed to do whatever it takes to be successful and that you will not stop or waver until you have achieved your ultimate result. The reason I won't assume that, is because this is the place where most people slip.  They either quit at the first sign of adversity and challenge, or they get so far off track that they [...]

Gut Check

Gut Check

If you are at the point in your life where you are serious about self-improvement, then I want to pass along a friendly little tip that may really have a positive and significant impact on your life. If you haven't  already started doing this, you really need to learn to trust yourself.  That nudge, or perhaps, at the risk of making you sound crazy, that little voice inside your head, is really there for a reason.  It's attempting to guide you.  The thing is, most of us tend to either second guess ourselves or never pay attention to the [...]

Ready, Set, Now Let Go!

Ready, Set, Now Let Go!

Letting go is such sweet sorrow.  Yes, that's mine.  Thanks, Bill Shakespeare. But seriously, one of the toughest things to do as you seek to improve yourself,  is to embrace this concept of letting go in order to really start achieving and receiving in your life.  And what's even harder than buying into the idea, is actually letting go. One distinction that can be made, which may at least help you start to define letting go, as you work to wrap your mind around the whole concept is that letting go is not forgetting about or losing [...]
