Start

Start

You know that project that you keep putting off and haven't started yet?  Start. And that new program, whether it be a fitness routine or change in lifestyle of some sort...begin today. The goal you want to reach, the success you want to attain, the idea you have for something big; stop procrastinating and start making things happen! Just do it.  Do something.  Get moving.  Start! A good plan executed today is far better than a perfect plan never executed.  Whatever it is you happen to be waiting for that perfect time to [...]

Due To Circumstances Beyond Your Control

Due To Circumstances Beyond Your Control

Bill Cosby is credited with saying, "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody". I think those are wise words, and should also serve as a bit of a warning for all of us. As strong as that desire may be within you to make everyone happy, or every situation harmonious, if you're measuring your ultimate success by the degree to which you accomplish this, you're in for a monumental letdown. No matter how awesome, cool, and wonderful you are, you can't make everyone happy.  And regardless of [...]

Your Every Day To-Do List

Your Every Day To-Do List

How would you like to hear about a four step process to achieving anything you want in your life?  Sounds pretty good, right? Well, I will warn you; it sounds so ridiculously simple, that your first inclination will be to dismiss it as trivial and silly. You may also think that it sounds like the stuff in fairy tales.. I might remind you though, in fairy tales, they all live happily ever after... Seriously, you will read this and do one of three things; you will either A. Dismiss it as dumb and move on, B. Think it sounds like [...]

A Few Words About Procrastination

A Few Words About Procrastination

When I talk to people about their biggest challenges as it relates to staying focused on what they want to accomplish in their lives, invariably, the topic of time management or procrastination rears its ugly head. And it makes perfect sense that procrastinating is what will cause more dreams to go by the way side than any other habit anyone could possibly form.  After all, the very act of procrastinating means that you or I are wasting time.  Really, what you end up wasting is opportunity, which exists all around  you, every day, woven [...]

Ready, Set, Now Let Go!

Ready, Set, Now Let Go!

Letting go is such sweet sorrow.  Yes, that's mine.  Thanks, Bill Shakespeare. But seriously, one of the toughest things to do as you seek to improve yourself,  is to embrace this concept of letting go in order to really start achieving and receiving in your life.  And what's even harder than buying into the idea, is actually letting go. One distinction that can be made, which may at least help you start to define letting go, as you work to wrap your mind around the whole concept is that letting go is not forgetting about or losing [...]

Just Be You

Just Be You

I love the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, "Insist on yourself, never imitate".  To me, these are pure words of wisdom.  If only all of us could apply that wisdom every single day. I also really like the way my friend Randy Gage put it in one of his recent newsletters.  He wrote, Be yourself, everybody else is already taken.  Same sound principle and just as strong a message. It's like the nutshell version of the meaning of your life.  If you have ever wondered what your true purpose on this planet is, I would say it's this...figure out [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Some Words About Action

Some Words About Action

Think about these phrases: "It's easier said than done" "Talk is cheap" "Actions speak louder than words" What do they all have in common? To me, they all say the same thing.  Talking about something is cheap, easy, and not real impressive.  Doing something is a whole different scenario.  Taking action is usually not the easiest thing to do, but it is always the more meaningful. You can apply it across the board.  Think of a husband telling his wife that he loves her, but never doing anything that might demonstrate it.  [...]
