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 [...]

Uncover Your Fears

Uncover Your Fears

Limitations are like The Boogeyman, they only exist if we believe in them. In fact, if we would refuse to acknowledge any limitations in our lives, we could do anything we wanted to do.  We would literally amaze and astound ourselves. Quite often however, because of our own limiting beliefs, instead of being astounding, we end up paralyzed by fear.  And we don't make any significant progress in our lives.  We don't dare challenge ourselves and we don't even come close to pushing our boundaries or expanding our experiences.  Very much [...]

Extraordinary Self Control

Extraordinary Self Control

Let me take a shot at empowering you. One of the worst feelings in life is the feeling that you have no control over it. Maybe that's how you feel sometimes.  If you do, you're not alone.  For many people, events and circumstances dictate their mood, attitude, and action (or inaction), and they truly glide through life like a kite tossed around by the wind.  Literally living each day at the mercy of the world around them. They don't have to.  And, if you feel like that, neither do you. I like to say that just about anyone can [...]

You’ll Achieve Whatever You Believe

You’ll Achieve Whatever You Believe

Nobody knows you quite like you know you. And nobody believes you like you believe yourself. So how are you really doing in life and what do you think about it? When I talk to people about their potential, I often bring up the fact that they know far more about what they are capable of than I do.  I can guess and I can talk to them about goals for achievement, but I don't have the ability to look inside and see what truly drives and motivates them or what thoughts and beliefs they possess about their own capacity for success.  And [...]

Talk About Awesome

Talk About Awesome

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting the Los Angeles King's President of Business Operations, Luc Robitaille. Now, if you happen to be a hockey fan, you know that Luc is also a former player.  And not just any former player...he is an NHL Hall of Famer.  He played for the Kings, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the New York Rangers and the Detroit Red Wings over his 19 year career, 14 of those seasons in Los Angeles with the Kings.  By the time he retired he had scored more goals than any other left winger in the history of the league (668), [...]

Wake Up and Start Dreaming!

Wake Up and Start Dreaming!

"All men dream but not equally.  Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible" - T.E. Lawrence Follow your heart.  Chase your dreams.  Believe in yourself.  Become exceptional.  Live an extraordinary and abundant life. How about it?  How does it feel to think about doing all of the wonderful things you've ever dreamed about?  Wouldn't you like to accomplish [...]

Positively Optimistic

Positively Optimistic

There is a slight but significant distinction to be made between being a positive thinker and being an optimist. I wrote about optimism back in January in the post Optimize Your World, and I have been thinking lately of how the optimistic mindset is really one that transcends mere positive or happy thoughts that one would have and is really an extremely powerful belief system which manifests as a lifestyle. Positive thinking is powerful and it is a great place to start for anyone interested in experiencing more success in any part of [...]

Just Add Levity

Just Add Levity

Anger is a pretty terrible thing.  It can eat you up from the inside, and it can cause you to say things or do things that you wouldn't normally say or do.  And it almost always ends up leaving someone hurting in its wake;  at the very least in an emotional sense and of course in a worst case scenario it can even leave someone reeling physically. It's just not a good feeling to have and when it rears its ugly head, it should be dealt with swiftly and seriously. I recently posted a couple of quotes on my Facebook Fan Page, which by the [...]

Potentially Amazing

Potentially Amazing

How far do you think you can go in life?  What awesome thing do you think you can achieve?  What is your true potential? I read a quote today attributed to Zig Ziglar and it said this, "You are the only person on earth who can use your ability". Did you get that?  YOU are the only person who can use YOUR ability!  It's a great quote, and I'm tucking it in my mental file somewhere between "Use it or lose it" and "No one else is going to do it for you". It also got me to thinking about how each one of us, as individuals, are really [...]

The Faith Of A Child

The Faith Of A Child

Can you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up?  Maybe you're still trying to figure that out... Do you remember what it felt like though, as a child, to imagine what it was you wanted to be?  And here's an even more powerful question:  When did you stop believing in that dream? There is really no faith like the faith of a child.  A child believes that they can have, be or do anything they want.  All that is required is an imagination.  And, like Einstein said, it takes them everywhere! So what happens to us when we [...]

Any Idea How Powerful Your Thoughts Are?

Any Idea How Powerful Your Thoughts Are?

If you were to see your mind as a perfect creative force, bringing into physical existence all of those things that you consistently focused on, would it change the way you think? You have probably heard the phrase, "garbage in, garbage out" applied to the mind of man.  It was a phrase used in early days of computer science eluding to the fact that computers will process whatever information you put into them, and correspondingly spit out a result based on that information.  So, if you put nonsensical data in, you would get nonsensical [...]
