  • Self-Made Success Requires No Permission

    Self-Made Success Requires No Permission

    20/09/2020 Duração: 10min

    Self-Made Success Requires No Permission The year 2020 has proven to be a never-ending challenge for many. It has also confirmed that having control of your mindset and actions are now pivotal traits. I've worked with thousands of people who find themselves against a wall and stuck in neutral. Two things always happened: 1) Through no fault of their own, everything familiar was no longer. They know they need to pivot but are frozen. 2) Not knowing which way to go, they were waiting for permission to get started - even if it was from themselves. The solution is to start thinking like a self-made person. Being self-made means that YOU decide what YOU want, and YOU don't need to wait for anybody's permission. You do it. You have everything inside of you to make 2020 a great year. Accept that change must happen and take action right away.

  • Busting Through Limiting Beliefs

    Busting Through Limiting Beliefs

    15/09/2020 Duração: 10min

    Busting Through Limiting Beliefs Have you ever had the feeling that something is holding you back? You have limiting beliefs. You were not born with limiting beliefs. Your experiences have installed a belief system within you. It serves as your guide in everything you do. The next time you find yourself unable to move forward, try these steps: 1) Identify the thought or behavior that is blocking you. In today’s busy world, that can be a challenge. Catch yourself in the act, pause, and identify what you are feeling. 2) Test that feeling by asking WHY you feel that way. Is it real, or is it an automatic response? Is it necessary for you? Would you like to keep it or change it? 3) Validate the answer you gave yourself, and commit to experiences that support your goals. You are now changing the path of your life. Having limited beliefs is ordinary and necessary. Can you imagine what your life would be like if you had no limits at all? Wait? You don’t!

  • Reinventing Yourself Now

    Reinventing Yourself Now

    14/09/2020 Duração: 11min

    Reinventing Yourself Now Change is one of those things that happens over time for most people. Sometimes you have no choice. If the past few months' events have you thinking about tweaking your life - I have a couple of suggestions to get you started. 1) No matter what dreams you hold, be sure to inventory the good, bad, and ugly of your current situation. You can't move forward if you don't know where you are starting. Don't be afraid. Information is power. 2) Next, decide WHAT you want and paint a picture of your life after your journey. Knowing your destination before you begin assures your success. 3) Now that you have laid the foundation, it's time to understand WHY you want it so bad. Doing the previous two steps should have built your desire and excitement. When that happens, it's time to lock in your WHY and get moving. Know where you are, what you will create, and WHY you must achieve your goal. Realistic and grounded thinking makes anything possible.

  • You Are In Control of Your Happiness

    You Are In Control of Your Happiness

    07/09/2020 Duração: 11min

    You Are In Control of Your Happiness What would you say if I told you that being happier is within your control and has nothing to do with your mindset? A study from Dartmouth College found that most people are happy before they turn 18 and after 60 years of age. In between is where you ride the happiness roller coaster. How do you get off? It turns out that being happier comes down to three things: 1) Control. People who have a feeling of control in their lives tend to be happier in general. 2) Education. Whether you earn a college degree or teach yourself, more education means a happier you. 3) Job. You were born to be busy. Having a fulltime or part-time job, even owning your own business will make you a happier person. Your education and your job enhance your view of the world. So if you want to be happy for the rest of your life, fill your mind with lots of education and work at a satisfying job. Your reward will be a feeling of control that will put a smile on your face every day.

  • Are You a Rock Star or Member of The Band?

    Are You a Rock Star or Member of The Band?

    31/08/2020 Duração: 09min

    Are You a Rock Star or Member of The Band? I have a question for you -  Are you a Rock Star or a member of the band? Either is okay, but it sure helps to know which Role you play while you are moving toward your goals. I remember talking with my Son after graduation. He had set his sights on becoming a Rock Star. Now, as a Dad who had BIG dreams and hard-won experience, I knew I had to give him perspective. So I asked - Are you willing to do what it takes to rise to the top? And if you don’t get what you want, will you be happy settling for life in the background? That’s when he said, “I wouldn’t be happy being a background singer.” He chased his dreams for a few years until he found a new passion that fits him like a glove. He may not be on stage, but he is a huge fish in a massive pond - and happy as a clam. You might call him a Rock Star! You will always get what you want if you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your dreams. How bad do you want it?

  • Happiness is Like Shopping For a New Home

    Happiness is Like Shopping For a New Home Two years ago, a friend called to let me know she found the home she was going to live in forever. Now she’s shopping again. When I heard the story of her search, it sounded familiar. Whether it’s a home, happiness, or anything else, it always seems to go like this - You want something different - although you may not know what you mean by that. You settle into “I’ll know it when I see it” mode and start exploring. Your search becomes all-consuming and begins to stress you out. You stop. That’s when the perfect “fill in the blank” opportunity pops into your life. “See! I can see it now!” You thrust yourself into action mode and turn your dreams into reality. True or true? I call this exploring the possibility. Sometimes you have to see, touch, and feel things before you know if you want it.

    Talk Yourself Into Success How much better would your day be if you knew what surprises were lurking around the corner? While you can’t predict everything, you can prepare for most things using “How Do I Feel Strategy Sessions.” Here’s how it works: 1) Take a few minutes and review what’s going on in your life. Your job. Your vacations. Your relationships. Your goal is to recognize what is likely to need your attention. 2) Now, think through every possible scenario and outcome for each item on your list. Imagine what may happen and craft a plan for handling it in your favor. 3) When the situation arrives, remember how you decided to handle it and stay in control. Thinking through and forming a pre-planned response will always make you the most powerful person in the room.

    Amping Up Your Productivity Do you ever run out of day before you run out of To-Dos? Getting what you want in life if often blocked by simple habits that are getting in your way. There are two that everybody tends to miss: 1) The first productivity super-charger is to understand that tomorrow begins today. Planning ahead and setting your path is vital to reach your desired outcome. 2) The second takes a few minutes in the morning before you get busy. The goal is to ground yourself, review your days' plan, and reaffirm what must be done. There's one more that is even more important. Every day has "Non-Optional Activities" that take more time than you think. Non-Opts are taking care of personal needs, like eating and sleeping. They are traffic delays—someone walking into your office or calling you for advice. Non-Opts are always present and they sap your productivity by robbing you of your time and focus. Recognizing and allowing time for non-opts is the fastest way to optimize and ramp up your productivity.

  • Validating Your Goals

    Validating Your Goals

    10/08/2020 Duração: 11min

    Validating Your Goals Have you ever found yourself setting a goal and then pushing the pause button? When my clients are revved up, excited, and not moving, the first thing I do is validate their goal by asking: 1) Do you know what your goal looks like and believe you can attain it? 2) Do you have a roadmap for achieving your goal? 3) Are the steps within your roadmap sufficient to reach your goal? Number three is the most critical indicator. An example would be a goal of losing 100 pounds in a year - with a plan that results in a loss of 5 pounds per month. It's a good plan, but you won't reach your goal. Know your goal. Believe it is possible. Create a roadmap. Validate that your actions will result in success. That's how you do it.

    Get Momentum With One Question Have you been busier than ever or sidelined waiting for life to continue these last few months? You’re not alone. Most people are feeling off-balance, unfocused, and lacking direction and momentum. When I feel momentum slow, I have a favorite question I ask myself and others who need a boost - What CAN I do? Are you willing to ask? Are you ready to accept the answer no matter how small? No matter how big or scary? If so, you will free yourself from being stuck, and a path will reveal itself. Experience has taught me the answer will be one of two choices: 1) A minimal adjustment in some area of your life. 2) The realization that something significant must change. Are you ready to toss out the old and go for it? Ask yourself, “What CAN I do?” - and be willing to accept the answer that you receive. Get the Daily Boost 5-Days a Week! HERE

    Setting and Understanding Expectation Imagine how your life would improve if everybody in your world understood what to expect. Expectations are powerful. Pay attention to these three: 1) What do you expect of yourself? You get to decide how you approach the world. 2) What do you expect of others? Clearly, understand what you expect of others. That allows you to avoid surprises - and toxic relationships. 3) What do others expect of you? When you let others know what they can expect of you - and walk your talk - you are living in integrity. Your life will always be more comfortable when you know what to expect of yourself and others.  Get the Daily Boost 5 days a week!

    Removing Blocks and Frustration When life gets in the way, do you get frustrated about being blocked?  I learned a long time ago that getting blocked is an everyday occurrence. The bigger my goals, the more blocks would arrive. I could either live with endless frustrations or find a better way. It came down to  understanding: 1) Blocks have nothing to do with who you are. Self-inflicted or caused by others, they still have nothing to do with you as a person. 2) If you want something, there is always a way to get it. Always. You may not like the path. Your ego may get in the way. It may scare you. There is still a way to get what you want. 3) Removing blocks from your life takes nothing more than commitment and action. That’s call passion. No block can stand up to passion. The next time frustration gets in your way, blow it off and keep moving. There is always a way to get what you want. Get the Daily Boost 5 days a week!

  • Should You Master Mind?

    Should You Master Mind?

    06/07/2020 Duração: 10min

    Should You Master Mind? In 1938 Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" popularized the concept of a Master Mind. Not a character in an Austin Powers movie, but the true path to success for anybody who wants it. According to Hill, a Master Mind is "the coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose." It gets better. "No two minds ever come together without thereby creating a third, invisible, intangible force, which may be likened to a third mind". And better. With PERSISTENCE and intelligence, and use discrimination in the selection of your "Master Mind" group, your objective will have been half-way reached, even before you begin to recognize it. Did he say half-way reached? Networking and collaboration are like a task on a To-Do list. If you want more, a Master Mind is how you get it.

    How To Stay Focused on What You Want

    22/06/2020 Duração: 10min

    How To Stay Focused on What You Want As a child, the most important thing on my mind was heading out the door for an endless adventure. It usually ended in a game of Hide-And-Seek. As we grow into adults, we tend to have other important items that distract us and our days. Eat, sleep, pay bills, feed the dog, take care of the kids, mow the lawn. We stay busy until we realize - Since when did day-to-day tasks become more important than life-long dreams? Steven Covey reminded us of the power of focusing on what's most important in our life. When things get busy, get it done, and get back to focusing on what you want. I wonder if it’s time to put yourself, your dreams, and your future back on the important list?

    Release Stress With Structure

    Release Stress With Structure Would you like to have less stress in your life and more fun? Of course, you would. But how is that possible in today’s world? In my life, I’ve encountered two approaches to managing stress that always appear: 1) Many people blow off stress by acting spontaneously and doing something crazy. 2) Others create a constant routine and build a predictable structure into their lives.  Studies support the effectiveness of choosing either. When you combine both is where the fun happens. When you take the time to tame the craziness in your life and create a structured day-to-day approach, you will find yourself with more time for spontaneous activity. And you will do it without having the stress of what think you should be doing. Structure your life for peace of mind. Feed your soul with spontaneity.

    Are You Blocking Your Happiness?

    07/06/2020 Duração: 12min

    Are You Blocking Your Happiness? Is there something in your life that you are resisting? The old saying, "What you resist will persist" is always at play. It is a potent force in both enhancing and debilitating ways. In my life, I have learned the root cause of anything I resist is either fear of change or misdirected focus. Others say, “I haven't learned my lesson." In any case, the solution has always been: 1) Identify the unwanted issue that is persisting. 2) Identify what the desire instead of the problem issue. 3) Summon the courage to stop resisting. Accept that you have learned the lesson. Commit to learning a new one. What you resist will persist. Sometimes the only way to win the fight is to give up the fight.

    How To Figure Out What You Want What if there was a magic formula for figuring out what to do next? I prefer to think of it as resetting your mind and re-discovering yourself. Most people are living in a continual state of craziness. 20 years later, they realize they have no idea what makes them happy. Worse, they have no idea how to get off the carousel and reset. If that’s you, try this: 1) Slow down and make space. The secret to finding YOU is spending time with YOU. 2) Take care of yourself and allow the buzz to drain from your daily experience. Claim if for yourself that extra space for yourself. 3) As your mind clears, you may find that you want to rush back to the craziness. Please don’t do it. Focus instead on remembering the things you most enjoy. 4) Explore the possibilities that pop into your mind. Try them on for size. Keep what you like. Toss those you don’t. 5) Finally. Never lock yourself into a commitment or no timeline for figuring things out. You can do that after you know what you want. Fig
