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 [...]

You Are Here…Today

You Are Here…Today

I found myself quiet this morning...which isn't always an easy thing to pull off on a Thursday...and in that quiet and still place, I became lost in a thought.  The thought itself was simple enough; life is a gift.  However, the more I thought about it, the more I became inspired to reflect on an extraordinary benfit to this great gift from God.  And that is, the unique opportunity each of us has, every single day, and for as long as we draw breath, to invent and reinvent.  And really what I mean is, the chance to reinvent [...]

You’re Still the One

You’re Still the One

Would you really like to stand out from the crowd?  As a business owner, as a professional, or even as a person? Then here's a solid suggestion that will allow you to separate yourself from the status quo or your competition, and put you on a path to achieving amazing results in your life.  Are you ready for it?  Here it is: Be yourself. As simple as that sounds, the truth is, being yourself is the one way you can truly stand out from the crowd.  You're a unique individual, and the best way to start to express that [...]

Think It Through

Think It Through

There is a poem that I have kept with me since I was a kid.  It has been a source of inspiration for years and I really wanted to share it with you tonight. When I mean that I've kept it, I mean that it has either been up on my office wall, or tucked in a notebook in my room, and it seems that I've always been able to access it when I have needed to for the last 30-some-odd years.  Of course, this is not hard now that we have the internet, and I'm pretty sure that I found the latest and greatest version that I have online. In any [...]

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 [...]

To Have Succeeded

To Have Succeeded

There's a great little poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson that I love and thought was worth sharing with you today. There are many definitions of success, and truthfully because we are all so unique, we will all have different ways of measuring it in our own lives.  It's always great to get someone's perspective on success, particularly if they are a really sharp person and successful themselves, like Emerson was. Read the poem he wrote and see if it inspires you or moves you in any certain way.  I think it is as brilliant and meaningful as [...]

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), [...]

Raise Them Up

Raise Them Up

I was cruising around the internet today, reading some wonderful poems and I stumbled across something that I had not read before.  I thought it was pretty amazing, as it caused me to feel several emotions as I was reading.  It was written by author Diane Loomans. It's about raising a child, but also about living a meaningful life. A few months ago, I wrote a six-part series on teaching kids the power of positive.  If you didn't get a chance to read those, and would like to, please check them out and feel free to leave your [...]

Comfortably Numb

Comfortably Numb

Aristotle said, "we are what we repeatedly do".  He said a lot of stuff, but you know, that was one of his more famous quotes. I totally agree with him, but I think he could have added "or don't do" to the end of that statement. Maybe it wouldn't have sounded quite as profound or meaningful if he had added my little addendum, but I think I'm right.  As much as our lives are the result of the great habits that we have, we are also subject to suffering through the consequences of the bad ones. Indeed, we are also what we repeatedly [...]

Road Warrior

Road Warrior

Imagine this: You want to go to Florida from California by car, so you plan a trip across the country.  You have always wanted to do this and you are at the point in your life where nothing else matters to you.  In spite of being a little scared of the unknown, you are extremely confident and motivated.  You have a map that gives you a pretty good idea of how to get there, money in your pocket for gas, and a cooler full of Mountain Dew (or some other form of stimulus to keep you awake for a long period of time).  At this point it's time [...]

Oops…I Did It Again

Oops…I Did It Again

"Anyone who has never failed has never tried anything new" - Albert Einstein "Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly" - Robert Kennedy Mistakes get a bad rap in our culture, don't you think?  I mean everyone is really down on mistakes!  And why is this? Mistakes are really only a bad thing if you don't learn from them.  I think they should be looked upon a little more positively.   Maybe it's just the feeling that we associate with the word itself.  It sort of makes us cringe, almost like there is an [...]
