Invest in the Good Stuff

Invest in the Good Stuff

Your time is a lot like your money.  You can spend it or you can invest it.  It's not something you can really afford to throw away, and it doesn't do you any good sitting around hoping you have enough of it later when you need it.  You either use it wisely or you end up with nothing to show for it. So here's some good advice for you from your self-improvement broker... Invest an hour of your time with someone you love. It could be your spouse, your son or daughter, your brother or sister, your mom or dad, your grandma or grandpa, [...]

30 Things in 30 Days

30 Things in 30 Days

Someone once said to me about business, "what gets measured gets done". As I recall it was a stiff corporate suit, who seemed to take some strange pleasure in the various ways he exacted torture on his employees by implementing new and creative ways to micro managment them...but, let's not go there in this post... The point he was making was actually a very good one.  And it doesn't only apply to business.  It makes sense for every part of our lives.  Any plan worth its own weight starts with a clear vision.  And in [...]

The Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards!

The Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards!

Alright, I'm going to kick off a little 2013 pay-it-forward fun by passing out some cyber-hardware.  I will be naming my choices for the first ever Habitual Victory "Amazing and Fabulous Blogger Awards". By naming the winners, I'm also recommending these outstanding blogs to YOU, as I believe they will help you in all kinds of amazing ways.  The bloggers involved are wonderful people who I respect and fully endorse.  And they're also some really cool cats!  Yes, being cool was a big factor for me, as I was determining who the first 10 [...]

Beyond the Plateau

Beyond the Plateau

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts" - John Wooden Ask most personal trainers in the gym about the value of cardio and they'll tell you it's essential to good health.  Most will say that at least 30 minutes of exercise a day is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and prolonging your life.  Ask them what makes the cardio most effective and they'll probably say something like, "that 15 minutes longer" than the 30 minutes a day you're doing is where you really make a difference for yourself. The push up after the [...]

A Little Magic

A Little Magic

Are you ready for a challenge?  It's not a ridiculously hard one, and it's not one that will take you more than 48 hours...but it's one that has a really cool payoff.  Are you interested? Okay...try this little experiment for two days. Whoever you interact with; at home, at work, at the grocery store, in church, at school, on the street corner, or wherever...interact with kindness and love in your heart.  Look for the goodness in every single person that you speak with.  Greet everyone with a smile, and make sure you say something [...]

Eviction Notice

Eviction Notice

It's that time of the year, people...out with the old and in with the new! So let's get 2013 started the right way. If you're harboring any bitterness or anger or even hatred inside yourself because of something some numb skull did to you at the office, or maybe because of some silly comment your sister made about you in public...it's time to cut it loose.  The old stuff has simply got to go. It's easy to take on the responsibility of lugging around negative thoughts and bad feelings.  In fact, it almost feels like your duty when [...]

The Best Kind of Bold

The Best Kind of Bold

Sometimes it seems like arrogant people are more bold, doesn't it? And it sure feels like those conceited, ruthless, greedy people are a lot more powerful than the rest of us, right?  (I'm assuming of course you're not one of the conceited, ruthless or greedy people I'm referencing). Sure, they can be louder in social settings, and they are truly adept at putting other people down, often in front of their peers.  But the truth is that the loud, obnoxious, cocky, and entitled among us are really cowards. Weaklings cleverly disguised as [...]

Back in the Saddle

Back in the Saddle

Wow.  It doesn't seem like I've been gone too long.  But, as I'm typing away on my laptop, soaking in a warm southern California evening, I realize that I haven't posted a blog in almost five full months. I've had the great fortune of staying in touch with many of you via Facebook, Twitter, through text messages and e-mails, but STILL....it seems pretty insane that the last time I was here it was three weeks before Halloween... In any event, I'm back, and I plan on posting a little more often than every five months. Thanks to [...]

Do You Hear That?

Do You Hear That?

I wanted to share something really cool with you tonight. My son is featured in the new inspirational video by Dex Elliott Sanders, for his song, "Heard a Voice", and I'd love for you to check it out. Here's the video link: HEARD A VOICE Besides being proud of my son, I think it's really a great song and a powerful video.  I hope that you'll watch it and perhaps even leave a comment for Dex or show your support by "liking" it.  I really think it's important that we share the great work of others who are out there following their [...]

Possibly Anything

Possibly Anything

I sometimes find myself searching the internet for motivational or inspirational poems that I can share with you here.  Tonight I found one that's pretty cool, and which I had never read before.  It's attributed to that world famous author we've all come to know and love, Unknown.  Sometimes it's better that way, since you never really know if the right person is getting credit for saying wonderful things. Regardless of who wrote it, the words are certainly inspirational.  And I hope that they move you and motivate you to do something [...]

Take Two

Take Two

Okay, here are 2 things you should start doing every single day.  The payoff for you will far exceed the effort it takes to get started, and if you make these things habits, your life will be more amazing than you thought possible.  They're simple things, and yet they can add energy and meaning to every single day that you're around.  How cool does that sound?  It's true.  Here's the short list: 1. Laugh If you only get one thing from this post, make sure it's this one.  Take the time to laugh every single day. It really is the [...]
