Whatever You Do…Don’t Do This!

Whatever You Do…Don’t Do This!

I have been fortunate enough to talk with many successful people in my life so far and I have had the chance to ask them how they achieved the biggest goals in their own lives.  In fact, it has been a quest of mine for the better part of the last 20 years to compile as much information about success and how it is achieved as I possibly could.  That research has become the backbone of  a book that I am currently in the process of writing. I am going to let one of the big secrets of success out though, right here in this little ol' [...]

Go Time

Go Time

If any of you have ever tried visualization as a sole source for accomplishment, then you realize by itself it really doesn't work.  The same can be said for repeating affirmations or making sure you hold positive thoughts.  These are all great, and they are definitely a big part of the process.  But your mind cannot get you where you want to be in your life unless you engage some other parts of your body. Let me say it this way; if all you do is sit around and visualize, even when your image is vivid, and loaded with emotion, if you [...]

See What You Get?

See What You Get?

You have no doubt heard the phrase, "what you see is what you get".  You may have even used it before.  If you have, you were probably describing a scenario where someone was physically observing something, thinking that there might be more to it, but alas, they were seeing everything there was to see. If you're a little older, you may remember The Flip Wilson Show, where comedian Flip Wilson would dress up like a woman to play the role of Geraldine.  He would always say "what you see is what you get" as he attempted to explain away the [...]

You Better Believe It

You Better Believe It

Achieving you dreams.  It sounds awesome, doesn't it?  I think a lot of us get hung up on the whole dream part though, and we figure that the perfect life we imagine is well beyond our reach.  We act as if it exists only as a fantasy with no real chance of actually manifesting in this lifetime. If you have taken the time to clearly define exactly what you want in your life like I talked about in the last post, then you are ready for the next step.  And the next step is one that sounds simple, but it takes focus and persistence.  The [...]

You Want To Do WHAT?

You Want To Do WHAT?

Alrighty then...let's get into this whole idea that any of us can be successful and achieve our dreams, with a simple 4 step formula.  I opened this up in the post Permanent Vacation, and I said that I would break out the 4 steps based on the great feedback that I was getting from all of you, so I'll start by elaborating a bit on Step 1... Before you can set out to achieve anything, you have to know what it is you are trying to achieve.  That much makes sense, right?  You also have to be very specific about the final outcome.  You have [...]

Permanent Vacation

Permanent Vacation

PVTS is something you probably haven't heard of.  I'm saying that because I actually made it up.  I consider it to be a very serious condition that seems to affect nearly every adult American every single year.  It often has no symptoms and can begin to consume seemingly happy and healthy people as quickly as any disease in the history of the world. Characteristics of this horrible ailment include a lack of energy and motivation, half-heartedness in every endeavor, boredom, non-production, a yearning for the recent past, and an [...]

Inside Job

Inside Job

Well, we're getting very close to that wondrous time of the year...you know, the part where it all ends. Sometimes it's tough to tell what people are more excited about; the current year ending or the new year beginning.  I guess it's just semantics at this point.  So it's time for a fresh start for all of us as we bid farewell to the old baggage...and it's time to break out the list of New Year's resolutions!  Yee haw! I hear so many folks say that the year went by so fast, when it finally gets down to the last few days.  But, it [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 6

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 6

This has been a fun little series of posts for me.  It has really helped me...gosh, I hope it has helped you, too! As I have written these entries, they have reminded me of the simple yet awesome miracle of being a parent, and also how important it is to raise our children in a positive manner.  Teaching them to love themselves for who they are, and that they are worthy of great things really establishes a base for them to build on in their loves.  Helping them find their talents and gifts and being supportive of their dreams allows them [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 5

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 5

Life is best when we are aware of it. The awesome responsibility we have as parents, and the lasting impact we can have on the lives of our children are just two of the many miracles that life has to offer us.  To realize them, we simply need to be conscious of them. Kids are naturally very aware.  They are masters of being “in the moment”.  Maybe this is a lesson that they should be teaching us… In order for us to help our children become all that they can in this world, we need to make sure that we are present with them in [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 4

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 4

Okay, let’s keep rolling… Now we have started to recognize the talent that our child has.  What a wonderful and proud moment this is as a parent.  Seeing anyone do what they love to do is a blessing, but seeing a child do it is even better. It’s better because they are doing it within the framework of the world they live in.  The one filled with love, and endless possibilities.  It’s really awesome. Isn’t that the world you want to live in?  Actually it is the world we live in, we just can’t see it because of all the darn [...]

Teaching Kids “The Power of Positive” Part 3

Talent is that certain something that every one of us is born with.  It’s a little different for each, because we are totally unique as individuals. Our kids are talented.  They have natural ability and aptitude that they were born to share.  It’s our job to help them in the pursuit of their extraordinary lives. A really big part of what we can do with our kids to get them headed in the right direction is to observe those things that they are gravitating toward, and those things which they seem to have a “knack” for.  [...]
