Will Power

Will Power

I ran across a great poem tonight that was written by a guy named Berton Braley. The poem is all about will power, but I also think it speaks to the power of the focused and persistent human spirit. There is no doubt in my mind that if any of us want something bad enough, we can have it.  Of course if we never do anything about our desire, we will simply go on wanting.  It is, after all, by taking action that we start to achieve all that we desire in life. The poem was just such a great reminder to me that wanting something is not [...]

Knowledge is Not Power!

Knowledge is Not Power!

Yes, that's my position. Knowledge is not power. Just like a parked car isn't fast...no matter what the logo on the front says. Knowledge by itself is as powerless as any other thought or feeling which you may have that fails to motivate you.  It just isn't powerful. Until...You apply it! Aha! Once knowledge is applied, it can be the most powerful force in the universe.  It can cause miraculous things to happen.  It can be utterly and completely transforming.  You can literally change your life by simply putting the [...]

Real Self Help

Real Self Help

I was speaking to a group of sales professionals the other day and I let them in on a little secret. The topic was the toughest sales job they will ever have.  It involved the most difficult prospect that they would ever have to persuade. And I also wanted them to know that once they were able to convince and sell this very specific person and convert them to their way of thinking, they would have a loyal customer for life.  And a customer that would lead them to unbridled success. The little secret that I shared with them and which [...]

Be Exceptional

Be Exceptional

There are plenty of things that you can do on the job which will make you more successful.  One of the most valuable things you can ever do is make yourself indispensable. It sounds like a daunting task, I know. The truth is that you can begin to separate yourself from others within your business or organization by doing something real simple, but which can develop into long term habits of success, and you can start doing it right away. The first step is to make a minor shift in your mental outlook. You have to understand that [...]

Two Good Ideas

Two Good Ideas

The advances in technology that we have experienced in the last ten years have been amazing. If you are a member of the working world and part of your job entails dealing with others, then your professional life has surely been changed by e-mail. When you think about it, sometimes it's almost as much a curse as it is a blessing.  The ability to communicate so freely and easily with so many people is pretty amazing, and can certainly be advantageous in business.  But, when you think about all of those people being able to reach out to you [...]

You Have To Ask

You Have To Ask

I'm sure you've heard it said before that there's no such thing as a dumb question. I disagree.  Kinda... I always tell people that there is indeed such thing as a dumb question.  In fact there is one question that is the king of all dumb question.  You haven't heard it, I'm sure.  Because to me the real dumb question, the only truly dumb question is the one that is never asked. Here's some solid advice that you can apply to both your professional and your personal life in order to become wiser and more successful:  Ask [...]

The Speed of Success

The Speed of Success

"Fortune favors the bold" - Latin proverb 'The universe likes speed" - Dr. Joe Vitale There is a great distinction to be made between making a hasty or rash decision and taking immediate inspired action.  One can lead to regret and some lousy ramifications, and the other can lead to amazing achievement and unrivaled success.  Knowing the difference is the beginning of wisdom.  Acting on that knowledge is pure genius. I have talked to thousands of business owners in my life, and I've had the good fortune to have been instrumental in [...]

Don’t Just Think About it…Do It!

Don’t Just Think About it…Do It!

The power of the present moment.  It's an amazing and wonderful thing.  If you can harness it, and direct it, you can achieve anything you want.  Learning to operate in the "now" is probably the single most liberating and powerful experience that you can have on this planet. Nothing gets done unless it is acted upon "now".  Think about it and you'll understand it. The only time you can ever do anything is right now.  In fact, your life is really a long series of "right now" moments.  If you can learn this and take advantage of it, [...]

Why Would You Fake It?

Why Would You Fake It?

You've probably heard the phrase "fake it until you make it" before.  If not, it is commonly used by someone in the work place describing the idea that if you aren't quite ready for the job you're about to take on, perhaps via promotion, just pretend that you are, and learn as you go.  You dress the part, play the role, talk the talk and the thinking is that eventually you will become the person you are pretending to be.  Sounds pretty adventurous, doesn't it? In theory, it has some pretty strong merits. After all, if you're in growth [...]

Note to Self

Note to Self

Here's some great advice for you if you are setting out to accomplish anything worthy in your life: Write down your goals!  Get them on paper!  Keep them where you can see them and read them every single day! Why is this such good advice, you ask? Well, there is something extremely powerful about a note that you write to yourself. It's almost as if the written word is some sort of a binding moral contract that you sign between your head and your heart.  When you outline your objectives and put them on paper, it let's your self [...]

Sweet Surrender

Sweet Surrender

If you are one of those people that have interest in learning how to manifest your desires and create the life that you believe you are entitled to live, then you probably have at least a couple of lists outlining the necessary steps to achievement.   And, you have no doubt read or heard the phrase "Let go" mentioned as a key part of the manifesting process.  It sounds great, but feels a little funny. If you have ever struggled with something in your life that seemed too big or overwhelming for you to deal with, and you sought the help [...]
