It Is Enough with Chalene Johnson
151

It's healthy to have an ambition to pursue your potential, as long as you also have the balance that you accept what you have already done as enough to make you happy. Your value doesn't exist in what you're trying to do, it's within who you presently are.  This is an important point from Chalene Johnson, our next interview guest.

Aug 07, 2020
"Spread love everywhere you go."
107

You have SO MUCH love to give! Let it ripple and effectuate many.

Your judgment of others is born in your own insecurities. Your understanding of something else is merely a projected reflection of yourself.

Complex Problems Require Simple Solutions
118

Just because something is complicated and difficult to understand does not mean that the most appropriate solution is designed with complexity. In fact, a good rule of thumb is: The simpler the better.

Jul 31, 2020
"You do you."

You do you, and I'll do me.

Jul 18, 2020
Never Quit. Move On
129

It's never okay to quit. But that's because of the way it makes you treat yourself. When the time is right, it's okay to move on. But you're the one in charge!

Jul 17, 2020
Energy Goes Where Energy Flows
126

You can be intentional about where you allocate your energy, and you will find that it will influence more of the same around you.

Jul 16, 2020

SISD #31 - Turning Crisis Into Success with Charly and Richard Jaffe
2865

In this interview we learn about a few key ingredients we all need to have success. We talk about success both through the lens of business and life, and how we are never too young to build our legacy.

Charly and Richard co-authored the book "Turning Crisis Into Success", which is available on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Turning-Crisis-Into-Success-Entrepreneurs/dp/1939116678

You can also ask Charly and Richard a question directly through the forum at https://www.crisisintosuccess.com/contact/

You Have Significance Today with Charly and Richard Jaffe
136

While it might not seem like it, your actions today have a huge impact on those around you. Your legacy isn't created at the end, it's earned every single day.

Jul 10, 2020
Do you try new things?
163

Whether you’re happy or not with the way your life is going today, it will continue to stay the same unless you do something different. What got you here won't get you there. And the previous associations you've had that have served you may no longer be serving you in the same way.

One of those associations I had was CBD based products, and with the generosity of SKARA in supporting Peace Players, I decided to give it a try. You can too at 15% off using the promo code "peaceplayers" at checkout on www.shopskara.com.

Jul 09, 2020
Make The Pass
163

Making the pass is doing the unselfish thing. It's putting the team in front of yourself, and getting others involved in the game. I invite you to make the pass with me to support underserved youth. $142 gets a deserving kid into Peace Players Summer Camp where they can develop critical team-working skills, be exposed to new ideas, and benefit from the structure and guidance offered by sports.

You can donate today at https://peaceplayers.networkforgood.com/projects/103689-peaceplayers-united-states. And guess what? If you donate then you can receive access to the Greatness Accelerator Program for free! All you have to do is send me your confirmation email to selfimprovementdailytips@gmail.com.

Let's make the pass!  

Jul 08, 2020
Outcome, Process, and Identity Orientation
181

It's not enough to just write down a goal. You need a plan to systematically identity what your goal is, how you'll measure your progress, and what you'll do to make progress. If you've set a goal and failed to reach it, then I encourage you to look into something I've created. It's called the Greatness Accelerator Program, and all proceeds will be donated to charity. That's abundance! You can make a difference by investing in yourself. 

Send me an email to selfimprovementdailytips@gmail.com with the subject line "Goals" to learn more about the program and the benefiting charity! Your support with this would mean the world to me.

Wednesday - The 7/38/55 Rule

Thursday - "You'll never know until you try."

Friday - Life Goes On

Jul 04, 2020
Life Goes On
114

Wins and losses. Trials, tribulations, and triumphs. No matter what happens life goes on.

Jul 03, 2020
"You'll never know until you try."
136

We associate "trying" too closely with "succeeding". When you try something, the success is in the effort of doing it, in the process, not the result.

Jul 02, 2020
The 7/38/55 Rule of Communication
132

7% of your communication is the words you say, 38% is the intonation and how you say it, and 55% is in your non-verbal posture and body language.

Jul 01, 2020
Coincidences Aren't Lucky
121

When two things happen together they "co" (together) "incide" (occur). Who ever said that process was lucky? It's more logical that they were meant to happen at the same time!

Jun 30, 2020
My Daily Mental Reset
136

Every morning, just like a phone or laptop or electronic that isn't working effectively, I turn my brain off. Of course I restart it, but now with a fresh and improved ability to approach ideas and problems.

SISD #30 - How Creators Are Wired with Jessica Carson
2403

Have you ever noticed how creators and entrepreneurs are just a little different? They seem to live on the extremes and have a hot-cold relationship with a lot of things. In this interview, Jessica Carson dives into why that is, the underlying psychology of it, and shares a few nuggets from her new book "Wired This Way".

"Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable."
118

It's hard to stop a train at full speed! Pick up enough momentum and that could be you. But it's starts with believing you can.

Jun 25, 2020
Science and Spirituality with Dr. Sangeeta Sahi
120

In these difficult times it's natural to try to answer the uncertainty with science. But it may be a better idea to answer it with spirituality.

Jun 24, 2020
Everything Can Change in an Instant
126

Life happens fast. It is both weak and fragile, and strong and resilient at the same time. We must embrace the positive qualities of this in order to extract as much as we can from it.

Every Hour, Every Minute, Every Second

What Interests You?
148

Not what you do for work, or some general answer. I want to learn something new about you. What truly interests you?

Jun 19, 2020
"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."
121

What is most important is that you keep going. Slow is even better sometimes, but you'll never go anywhere if you stop.

Jun 18, 2020
Why Groups Don't Get Along with Michael Vargas
141

We live in a weird world where people are forced to take sides in order to feel like they belong. But what are the actual mechanics behind that? Lead By Impact founder Michael Vargas breaks it down for us.

Jun 12, 2020
Positive Thinking Only?
117

Sometimes you don't need constructive criticism, you just need unwavering support. A great qualifying question before sharing feedback is "Positive thinking only?"

Jun 11, 2020
Faith - Fully Attainable in the Heart
120

Faith is having radical obedience to your journey and the direction of the heart.

Jun 10, 2020
Collective Success
121

We are just about the same as everyone, which means that we live inside of everyone. We should be treating each other and rooting for each other like we're rooting for ourselves!

An Observation About Pigeons and People
139

From years of evolution we have developed "knee-jerk" reactions to best respond to our environment. Well now that environment has changed, so what should we do about those default reactions?

May 29, 2020
"Be the change you wish to see in the world." -Gandhi
129

Before we can do, we must be. Things cannot be fixed at the level of consciousness in which they were created.

Can you help me out? Please complete this survey: bit.ly/4-purpose-survey

May 28, 2020
It Might Not Be A Good Fit
121

SISD #28 - The Everyday Philanthropist with Dan Pallotta
1933

Dan Pallotta has disrupted the non-profit sector because of one simple premise - He dared to dream big. Not only that, but he encouraged non-profits to dream big as well and get the support they deserve.

It is very difficult to understand the non-profit world at first glance, but Dan has done an excellent job helping people know how to evaluate and support different charities. He recently released a book called "The Everyday Philanthropist" that details everything you need to know about your own charitable habits, and how they interact with non-profits.

Dan is probably best known for his record setting Ted Talk "The way we think about charity is dead wrong". If you're interested in learning more about helping others through philanthropy, I highly suggest you check out Dan's work.

May 22, 2020
"You are nothing special."
114

Now let me finish... while you are nothing special, that's the best part. It's because everything can do anything, and you are nothing special in that you can do anything too!

May 21, 2020
Dream Big with Dan Pallotta
129

"I think what's really silly is for grown men and women to squander this tiny, tiny little bit of time we have here on Earth to make a difference on anything less than the most daring breathtaking dream we're able to dream." - Dan Pallotta

May 20, 2020

May 19, 2020

Run From the Catalyst, Run Toward the Dream with Shane Sams
136

In order to sustain motivation you need to know what you're trying to run from, the catalyst. In order to know  how to do what you want to do next, you need the dream.

May 07, 2020
"Like a dream that don't come true, something better will come to you."
114

It's within our own linear thinking where we try to reason what's "meant" to happen to us. But we aren't capable of accessing the larger plan. We must trust the process!

May 07, 2020
Give Someone Two Options
98

This is a classic sales tip. No options and they can't take action. One option and they have no agency. Too many options and they get decision fatigue. 2 options is just right!

May 06, 2020
Deal With the Real Feat. Matt Zinman
157

The fact that you survived your past experiences indicates that you have what it takes to keep moving forward. This thought featured by the eloquent Matt Zinman, more information about Matt can be found at www.z-isms.com.

145

We need to understand the difference between the internal and the external. Our external awareness informs our ability to make internal choices.

May 01, 2020
"If at first you don't succeed..."
138

Can you finish the quote? I bet you can't...

Parkinson's Law
118

Work will expand to take up the time allotted to do it.

Apr 29, 2020
Nobody's Prefect
124

In fact, perfection isn't even what we should strive for. Perfection is limiting... we should all strive to be adaptable!

Apr 28, 2020
Understanding Beliefs and Perspectives
118

We grow up exposed to certain ways of thinking and adopt them as our own. When we realize there is bias in it we open up our own awareness to how we believe things to be.

"Use your smile to change the world, don't let the world change your smile."

A smile is a universal expression. It speaks all languages, overcomes all differences, and holds all space.
