Believe it or Not

Believe it or Not

I heard someone say the other day that there are really only three possible answers to anyone's genuine prayer.  They said the answer is either "Yes", "Not Yet", or "There's Something Even Better". I really think that's the best way I had ever heard this concept described.  I think it's exactly right.  And its also incredibly empowering. No matter your perspective on prayer or asking, you have to love the idea that is being presented here.  It seems to echo the Biblical principle that you will receive whatever you ask for, if you [...]

Living Within Yourself

Living Within Yourself

I wanted to share a couple of motivational poems with you that I really like. The first was written by Donna Levine and the second by Brian Tracy. Both of them speak about the ability each of us has within us to become the people that we were meant to be.  And by doing so, not only will we achieve our dreams and desires, but we will also make our journey the most wonderful and fulfilling adventure possible. Read them and see if they stir you to get started becoming the person you have always wanted to be.  After all, it's never too [...]

Easy Rider

Easy Rider

If you want to use the law of attraction to manifest your greatest life, here's all you have to do: First, be totally clear as to what you want to manifest.  Next, make sure that your end goal is the dominant thought that you hold in your conscious mind (but remember, your subconscious mind actually has more control than you are aware)...don't focus on or think about what you don't want...then, clear out any negative or limiting thought patterns or beliefs that you may or may not even know you have...visualize the end result clearly in [...]

Learn To Unleash

Learn To Unleash

So what are we suppose to do when we get frustrated? After all, it happens to every single one of us.  Yes, even the positive minded. If you are pushing forward in life and are committed to learn and grow, sooner or later you're going to get somewhere you've never been and it's going to be like hitting a wall. Frustration can come at us from all angles.  When we don't achieve a desired result in the time table we expected it to materialize, it aggravates us.  We might also get flustered because we don't have a frame of reference [...]

What, Why, When and How

What, Why, When and How

It's really cool to think that you can actually manifest your own reality!  The idea that changing your dominant though patterns can actually help you begin to create a new life is a pretty awesome and exciting.  And it's true! It's also really hard. No, I'm not trying to be a party pooper, but the truth is, manifesting a life of abundance takes more than just a few good thoughts and some catchy affirmations. It requires great focus, commitment, faith and above all else, a meaningful understanding of how the whole process actually [...]

Don’t Put This Off!

Don’t Put This Off!

I've been in a few conversations lately where the topic of procrastination has come up.  It is a very popular topic, and it seems to be something that everyone battles at one time or another.  In fact, I'm sure there are some who struggle with constantly. Last year, I wrote an e-book titled, Stop Procrastinating Now, and I can tell you that the feedback I have received from those who have read it, is that it made all the difference in the world for them.  If procrastination has ever reared it's ugly head on your life, then 'd love for [...]

Every Day

Every Day

Willie Mays said, "It isn't difficult to be great from time to time. What's difficult is to be great every day". I love that quote and have kept it with me at my desk for years.  I break it out every so often with my staff or any group who will listen, because it is a great reminder that we can really bring our A-game at any given time, and while that's good, it's not exceptional.  Exceptional (and difficult) is bringing that A-game every single day.  No matter what. And being great every day is what enables you to accomplish anything [...]

Has LOA left you DOA?

Has LOA left you DOA?

The law of attraction gets a lot of press these days. It's a principle of nature that has existed since the beginning of time, at least as far as any of us can tell, but it really seems to have grown in popularity over the past few years. The law basically operates like this: Your life is the result of your most dominant thought patterns.  Like attracts like and so whatever you focus on most (consciously or subconsciously) is what is attracted to you.  You also become attracted to it.  Sounds pretty simple on the surface, right?  And [...]

What You Do Next

What You Do Next

The late John Wooden said a lot of things over the years that I absolutely loved.  He was such a principled man and had such discipline and conviction, he was hard not to admire.  If you listen to the people that were around him the most, they were all so touched and inspired by this man it's hard not to think of him as one of the most influential people who ever lived.  Especially in the sports world. He had one particular saying that I have referenced over the years and used to motivate myself at the times in my life when I have seemed [...]

Go and Keep Going

Go and Keep Going

I found another really good motivational poem today and I couldn't help myself...I had to post it! Of all of the traits that seem common to the most successful people in the world, persistence seems to be the one that actually gets things done.  Anytime I have the opportunity to talk to someone about their goals I will tell them that they can achieve whatever they set their minds and heart on if they will commit to not quitting.  Ever.  It is as tried and true a process as there is in the universe. So I found this short but very [...]

TGIM?

TGIM?

I tell people that when their "Mondays" start to feel like their "Fridays" they are on to something!  Of course I usually have to clarify that I said "onto something" and not "on something" because most people can't fathom a Monday being anything less than a full day of depressing torture. On the other hand, there is an almost giddy excitement that grabs hold of even the toughest individual when they wake up in the morning on a Friday and realize they are only a few hours away from the freedom and fun that a weekend brings to their [...]
