Time To Step Up?
10:11

Time To Step Up?

Imagine how you would feel if everything is perfect in your life - yet it feels like there is more.

Is it time to step up?

You’ve spent your entire life rising to the next level in the pursuit of success and happiness. Maybe you have arrived. Maybe you haven’t. In either case, the time will come that things don’t feel the same.

Yes. It’s time to step up.

No matter what happens in your life. No matter who comes into your life. Everything exists for a reason and a season.

Letting one thing go for something better is the process for achieving happiness.

It’s time to step up.

Set Yourself Free
10:48

Set Yourself Free

John Lennon was famous for saying, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."

Over the years, I've found that folks tend to ACT and DO on what serves them best. And they do it while dreaming and planning for something else.

It's an exhausting way to live. You can set yourself free by making a simple decision.

If you want something different, do it now! 

If you can't get yourself to do it, consider that it may not be as relevant to you as you think.

If that's the case, get your ego out of the way and scratch it off your list. 

You're going to surprise yourself with new opportunities. They have been hiding for years, waiting for you to make space.

How To Succeed With Any Goal
10:53

How To Succeed With Any Goal

Setting Goals is the most powerful method of getting what you want. It is the power of your mind - activated.

Here’s how:

1) Decide what you want and when you want to get it.

2) Decide when you will start and when you will finish.

3) Decide how you will begin and how you will maintain your momentum.

Then you must get to work.

Limit anything and anybody that has a distracting influence on you. You must get to work.

Commit to overcoming any obstacle that gets in your way. You must get to work.

The path is long. Start like a sprinter and end like a marathon runner. You must get to work.

The only thing stopping you from getting what you want is not you. It is everything that you allow to get in your way.

How To Connect With Conversations
11:33

How To Connect With Conversations

Today you are going to have opportunities to communicate. 

Here’s how to create conversations that connect:

1) Meet folks where they are. Pay attention to how their day is going. Step into their NOW.

2) Establishing something in common. “Wow! Has this day been crazy for you too?”

3) Establish an undeniable truth. “I promise it’s going to get crazier with the holidays coming.”

4) Move toward an idea that everybody can agree. “Holidays are coming fast. We should get ahead of it and do some planning.” 

5) Bring a new idea into the conversation. “I have a system that will work for both of us. Do you want to see it?” 

You will always get more of what you want when your communication moves toward a common goal.

Handing Yourself. Handling Others.
09:07

Handing Yourself. Handling Others.

One of my hobbies is running my Australian Shepard, Levi, in agility competitions.

When people see us run, their first comment is almost always -

"I love how your dog knows where do go. How did you teach him to follow the numbers on the course?"

I always smile.

No. Levi does not follow numbers. He relies on me, his Handler, to tell him where to go. If I don't communicate my intention, he will go off course and be eliminated.

In the agility world, we like to say, "Every dog has a Handler problem."

I've noticed the same thing in the human world.

If you think you are being tripped up by someone else, double-check to see if they are having a Handler problem.

Know what you want, where you want to go, and effectively communicate your goals. You will be amazed at how almost everybody will follow the numbers.

4 Questions For Better Decision Making

Do you ever have difficulty making decisions? 

In the next 60 seconds, you can harness the most potent and easy to use decision-making tool I have ever found.

Forget the old "Pro and Con" list your Mom and Dad taught you.  It’s time for a new approach.

The next time you find yourself challenged use Quantum Linguistics.  Ask yourself these 4 simple questions to solve your problem:

What would happen if I DID?

What would happen if I DIDN'T?

What wouldn't happen if I DID?

What wouldn't happen if I DIDN'T?

Unusual clarity is around the corner.

No More Information Overload
10:42

No More Information Overload

Are you caught up in information overload that is driving you crazy?

Too much information leads to confusion and a lack of clarity - a recipe for frustration.

It’s time to embrace Adequate Information in all aspects of your life.

Your goal should be to sift and sort until you discover only the information you need to move forward. Ignore everything else. It’s noise.

Success comes from clarity, adequate information, leverage, and ritualistically repeating what works.

Steps of Change
03:28

Steps of Change

Happiness in life is about getting what you want and keeping what you love.

The process always follows these four steps:

1) Decision: Everything begins with a decision to move in a new direction. The more meaningful your decision, the more likely you will take action.

2) Definition: Aimless wandering toward your dream is no fun. Defining your path will get you there quickly.

3) Deployment: Putting your plan into action separates a truly fulfilling life from a frustrating life.

4) Defense: Once you achieve what you want be sure to develop a plan to defend it so you never lose it.
Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

How To Find Yourself
12:33

How To Find Yourself

Are you the kind of person who can't decide what to do with your life?

Are you fearful of pulling the trigger and going for it?

It can be scary to start something new - especially if you don't know how well you'll like your new lifestyle.

Why not explore the possibilities with no commitment?

Instead of charging forward into the unknown, why not take the fear away and test your new experience first? If it's a keeper, keep moving in that direction. If not, test something else.

Most everything in your life has happened because you stumbled into it and decided to stick with it. Why change what works?

Most Productive Week Ever
11:22

Most Productive Week Ever

What if you could have the most productive week ever?

The solution is simple; get ahead of the game before the game begins.

It works like this:

1) List your short and long-term goals. 

2) Decide what past achievements you enjoy and that you want to continue as you pursue new adventures.

3) Decide what future goals you are ready to 'activate' and achieve - NOW!

4) Next week begins this week. Thursday is your new planning day. That's when you plan how your goals will fit into next week.

5) Get up on Monday morning, ready to ROCK!

9 Personal Development Principles You Need
10:55

9 Personal Development Principles You Need

You may have heard that you will elevate your station in life to the degree that you elevate yourself.

Personal Development is how you do that.

Here are some easy ideas to move you forward:

1) Acknowledge that all emotions come from within you.

2) Seek out someone you respect. Use them to stay honest.

3) Recognize there is life after failure.

4) Read purposefully. Apply your knowledge.

5) Challenge yourself to be brutally honest.

6) Reflect on what you spend the most time on.

7) Remind yourself: you weren’t meant to procrastinate.

8) Put the phone away. Be present.

9) Remind yourself that time is your most precious resource.

Can you imagine how much you can change in your life when you live by those principles?

Don’t Like Who You Are? Change Who You Are!
10:59

If you are unhappy with who you have become in life, there is a simple question that will redirect you -

What do you want to be different than it is now?

Every choice you have made has put you where you are. If you want something different, all you have to do is make different choices.

Yes, it is that simple.

Different choices mean a different direction. A whole new world is waiting for you.

Who will you become today?

Emotional Trigger Mastery
11:32

Do you ever find yourself emotionally triggered and tossed off track for the entire day?

You are an emotional person. When emotions keep you from logically navigating your day, problems begin.

How do you control being triggered?

1) Identify what triggers a response that you want or don’t want to experience. 

2) Decide how you want to feel when triggered. Make a plan to respond.

3) The next time you are triggered, recognize what is happening and execute your plan.

Identify. Decide. Respond.

The more you catch what emotionally triggers you, the more control will have over how you feel. That is true power.

Eliminate Distraction The Easy Way
11:15

Getting what you want in life requires one thing. Focus.

It's a simple fact; you get what you focus on. 

But how do you get focused when distraction is everywhere?

That’s is easy.

If you feel like you are wondering and wobbling on your life journey, there are two questions you should ask:

1) Am I wondering and wobbling because that's what I want to do?

2) If not, what SHOULD I be focusing on right now?

Distractions are the same as a focus - only pointed in the wrong direction. A quick adjustment is all it takes to get yourself back on track.

Steps of Change
12:38

Is there something you would like to change about your life?

Stop smoking, lose weight, get a better job?

No matter what you choose, you will always climb the steps of change.

Stage One: Known as Pre-contemplation. This stage appears when an idea pops into your head for the first time.

Stage Two: Contemplation. This middle ground is where most folks get stuck. It can go on for a lifetime.

Stage Three: Determination. You’ve made up your mind and begin preparing for what is to come.

Stage Four: You get started. You are in action mode. There is no turning back.

Stage Five: Maintenance mode. Your job is to keep what you have. This stage may also last your entire life.

5-Minute Focus
10:42

It's the world's simplest recipe for success; Stand up, take a step, REPEAT! 

A member wrote asking the best use of that simple advice:

1) Stop what you are doing. Block out everything. Focus on YOU.

2) Find a place where nobody will interrupt you for 5 minutes.

3) Ask yourself, "How is my life going?" Open your mind and let your thoughts flow into the different areas and roles of your life. Bring them into focus.

4) For things going well, continue your momentum. For areas of concern, ask," What CAN I do to make it better?"

5) Immediately take action based on your answers.

Checking in with yourself 5-minutes a day is all it takes to stay focused and on track toward your goals.

Oct 14, 2019
No Stress To-Do List
10:33

Are you spending your day chasing checkmarks? Are you trying to finish your never-ending to To-Do List?

Most people tend to add to their list without thinking much about it. Then they check their list to remind them how much they haven’t done. That will ruin your day.

A better way is to think of your list as “Did-I-Do-It-List.” While it may seem the same, there is an important difference.

Instead of feeling bound to your list, your new mindset is simple. Check your list to make sure you did what you planned.

I’ll let you decide.

Are you less stressed when you try to keep up with life?

Or are you less stressed when you see how much progress you have made?

How To Feel 16 Again
12:40

Growing up, sure can get in the way of your dreams. It’s sad how so many goals get pushed aside for daily responsibilities. 

Think about this -

When you were 16, the only freedoms you enjoyed were what your parents allowed. When you grow up, you have total freedom and complete control.

If you could live today like you were 16, it might look like this -

You would go to school and educate yourself.

Your friends would be real friends. Not just people you met at the office.

You would dream about your future.

You would be excited about what was to come in life.

You wouldn’t be allowed to drink. Your mind would be clear.

You would embrace having fun for the fun of it.

You couldn’t and wouldn’t get in debt.

You would sleep. A lot.

The job you have today would have felt like a prison. Does it?

You would busy yourself all day with LIFE.

You don’t have to 16 again. But imagine how much fun you could have if you knew then…what you know now… and used it all today?

Perfect Day. Perfect Life.
13:12

What if every day, for the rest of your life, was perfect?

Your subconscious mind is a beautiful thing. You can engage its power to design your life to be exactly how you imagine. Here’s how:

1) Write down an event-by-event vision of what your perfect day would be. Yes, it’s a fantasy - for now.

2) There are no rules. No limitations. No consequences. Don’t be shy. Be honest about what you want.

3) Believe it can be yours! You deserve it.

If you follow these steps, your sub-conscious mind seeks ways to make your dreams come true. All it needs is a partner willing to take action. Do that, and you’ll create a fantastic life.

Figuring Out Your One Thing
09:37

In the movie “City Slickers,” Mitch was on a mission to find purpose - as if there was a single solution for everybody. 

That’s when he met a cowboy with simple yet straightforward advice -

Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger] This.

Mitch: Your finger?

Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that, and the rest don’t mean &*#@.

Mitch: But, what is the “one thing?”

Curly: That’s what you have to find out.

Most folks spend their lives searching outside themselves while what’s important quietly rages inside of them.  Most happily move through their day with little or no thought.  But the search continues - until they finally figure Curly’s secret -

The ONE thing is different for everybody - and it’s far less exciting and easier to find than you think.

Doing More Than You Must For Success
13:47

Earl Nightingale produced “The Strangest Secret” to motivate his insurance company sales force.  It is now a motivational standard.

The secret is simple:

1) You become what you think.

2) You must pay the prices.

3) You must control your thoughts.

4) Cutaway the limitations of your mind.

5) Set a clearly defined goal. 

6) Act promptly when your path is clear.

7) Save at least 10% of every dollar.

What do you want more than anything else? 

Do more than you must. Do more than anybody else. Do it better than anybody else.

Are you ready to make so nobody can ignore you?

Commit today to do more than you must to get what you want.

Somewhere Leads to Somewhere
11:54

Have you ever wondered how to change the direction of anything in your life? If Where you live, your job, your relationship?

It doesn’t matter where you are or where you want to go.  The process is the same.

And it doesn’t require dramatic contortions in your life to make it happen.

It’s simple.

You have arrived somewhere, and you want to go somewhere else. 

Even if you don’t know how you got where you are, point yourself in a general direction and start taking action. You’ll figure it out.

The path from somewhere to somewhere else also includes stops somewhere along the way.

What happens is you don’t like where you are?

Remember that somewhere will always lead to somewhere else.

You’ll get there eventually.

One more thing -

On your journey to somewhere, you will be doing lots of somethings with lots of someones. That’s what makes it fun.

Is Your Future Slipping Away?
11:52

Have you noticed how everybody is running so fast these days?

Are they living in the moment? Are they dwelling on the past? Are they dreaming of the future - and waiting for it to arrive?

Any human would experience a combination of all three every day. That's normal as long as it doesn't get in the way of living.

A decade ago, my first wife passed away from Cancer. She was 46 and too young to die. I was too young to be a widower. My children too young to lose their Mom. 

While challenging, our family had an unconventional outlook on life - and death. In fact, our goal was to make it the best death ever. Sadly, we achieved that goal.  It was the strangest accomplishment any of us had ever experienced.

After she passed, my daughter, Carlyn, wrote a poem that resonates to this day -

Soon we'll all find our way.

Soon we'll know what.

Makes us who we are.

Soon we'll wake up.

To a day we can appreciate.

Soon we'll know that.

Tomorrow we'll be better.

Soon we'll trust that everything's okay.

That the past is gone.

Can't hold us back.

Soon we'll smile about today.

Soon will come too soon.

Don't let it slip away.

Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future. Don't let it slip away.

Ultimate Time Management
12:21

It seems everybody is obsessed with Time Management. Who do we think we are? The Boss of Time?

The truth is, there is not one person on this planet who has the power to manage Time.

No matter how strong you are, Time will not bend to your command. 

Whether you sit around and do nothing or push hard toward your goals, Time will remain constant.

What you can manage is YOU.

The most successful, relaxed, and happy people understand that it’s up to them to bend themselves to fit Time. They hold space in their life:

1) Always decide in advance the essential activities you will be doing and when you will be doing them. Focus on actions that must get done and will drive you forward. 

2) A week in advance, create sacred blocks on your calendar. Choose the activities that will fill the blocks.

3) No matter what gets in the way, keep your appointment with yourself. Complete your activities in the assigned block. Walk away.

Follow this simple recipe and you will always be a week ahead. You will be locked into your momentum building plan. You will make never-ending progress.

Procrastination Distraction Condition
12:38

Do you ever feel like you are procrastinating?

What if I were to tell you that you are not, and there is an easy fix.

It’s hard to tell how many dreams have are being crushed from the inability to get things done.

Procrastination is nothing more than a distraction from current life conditions. Decide that your current circumstances are no longer acceptable, you stop procrastinating.

What if there was something deeper?

What if you were filling your day with non-stop activities in preparation to reach your goals?  But it feels like you are procrastinating? 

You are not, and one day, when you’re ready, you will begin. 

You are distracted, happy in your toiling, and filling yourself with growing frustration. 

You are not procrastinating; you are Fixin’ to get ready.”

You’ll know you are Fixin' when you are working toward your goals yet feel like you can’t get momentum to get started. You are not procrastinating. You are waiting to reach the starting line.

Fixin’ happens when you get caught up in details and become overwhelmed. The solution is to simple. Forget the big picture. Choose a starting point.  Begin. 

If you are procrastinating, STOP IT. If you are fixin’ to get ready, STOP IT. There is no try. There is only do. Thanks, Yoda.

Success Habits
12:10

Whatever you get in life is a result of your daily habits. What is a habit?

According to the dictionary, it is a settled or regular tendency or practice.  It is also something that is especially one that is hard to give up.

Good habit or bad - they are hard to give up. If that’s the case, you may as well choose good habits.

In a survey of 233 self-made millionaires, here’s what they did that lower-income earners didn’t -

Get up early, read, a LOT, spend 15 - 30 minutes each day on focused thinking.

Good habits, done daily, create success.

Made exercise a priority, spend time with people that inspire them, pursue their own goals.

Settled habits create settled success.

Get enough sleep, have multiple incomes, avoid time-wasters.

If you’re not getting the results you want, there is a high likely hood that you are not giving up your current habits.

Until you establish new habits, little will change. When you do, everything will change.

You Must Change Before Anything Else Changes
11:27

People have always sought change for themselves, their life, or the world.

If you want to change, there is a constant truth; you must change before anything else changes.

Many smart folks agree -

Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Leo Tolstoy, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

What about Albert Einstein? 

“The world, as we have created, is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”

Do you want to change something about today, tomorrow, or the future?  You must change before anything else changes.

Have you learned lessons from past experiences?  You have already changed, and your future is better for it.

Rumi said, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”

If tomorrow you want to be better than today and yesterday, something has to change. That something is you.

If you want to make more money, serve more, and be happier next year, something has to change this year. That something is you.

If you want this life to be well-lived, something has to change today. That something is you.

What if you want everything about your life to be perfect? Listen to Winston Churchill. “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”

It’s so simple. 

You Must Change Before Anything Else Changes.

Leadership is More Than Looking The Part
12:33

I was speaking with a young man at the gym. He made a comment that made me twist my head sideways like one of my curious Alpacas. 

He said, “I’m working so hard to be a good leader. Here I am at the gym, and I’m spending all my time on the phone trying to get my team to be more productive.”

I asked, “What is your team doing?”

“Oh, some are working in the office and others with clients, but I know they can do more.”

I don’t know about you, but that last thing that motivates me is to have somebody else, who is NOT working, tell ME to get to work. That’s what I said. 

His response?

“I am working. I must look good in my career. My staff should understand that.”

Oh - I’m confident they understand completely.

Leadership is more than LOOKING the part. It’s about BEING the part. If you are talking more than you are walking, you are not leading.

Sep 17, 2019
You Are The Engine That Drives Your Dreams
14:39

You’ve heard if you want success you must go after your goals with consistency and dedication. You must want it for yourself. More than anybody wants if for you.

YOU are the engine that drives your dreams.

Others will help, but in the end, your actions are the only thing that will lead to the reward.

I remember when my kids got older. I had a talent for manifesting what I wanted in life, and my Son asked, “Dad, how do you always seem to create what you want?”

I said, “YOU must make up your mind that you want it before you can get it. You are the engine that drives your dreams.”

I had to laugh when he said, “Is that telling me to make my bed when I was a kid?”

One more thing.

Some people think when they reach their goals they can take a break.  Not so.  Permanent success does not come from temporary actions.

Your real reward will be all the new opportunity that arrives in your life.  Everybody loves a winner.

YOU are the engine that drives your dreams. Always remember that.

Do What Makes Your Heart Sing
11:34

Have you ever found yourself working for hours while time flies? 

You are doing what makes your heart sing!

Some folks say, "Do what you love, and you'll never work another day in your life." 

That's not true. 

You will work harder than ever - and will love every minute of it. Your rewards will come like never before.

It's easy to dream of a less complicated life when all you have ever done is live a complicated life. 

That's not the issue. 

When you realize that there are never enough hours in the day - and you don't care - nothing else will matter. 

Sep 09, 2019
What CAN You Do - Right Now?
11:46

What CAN You Do - Right Now?

I have a favorite question;" What Can I Do?"

I ask it when I'm unsure about the next action. It always delivers. 

Getting what you want in life sometimes includes random and vague goal setting - something that is not likely to help you make progress. What you need is to be targeted and specific. 

But what do you when targeted and specific isn't coming to mind?

Ask yourself -

" What Can I Do?"

Sometimes the answer is not what you want to hear. Then again, when you are stopped in your tracks - it can't hurt.

What's next?

Stand up, take a step, REPEAT!

You'll find your way.

Removing Obstacles That Stand in Your Way
11:51

Removing Obstacles That Stand in Your Way

Have you ever wondered how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to think so much?

What if the future or your past didn’t matter?

Imagine if you didn’t worry about the possessions, success, or drama of others?

What would happen if you believed that YOU are in control? 

Now you are starting to think like a Stoic Philosopher.

Stoicism is about paring down and simplifying. They eliminate unproductive traits that define the majority of the population. One of the most common is by turning obstacles upside down, creating opportunities, and seeing them as teachable moments.

For a Stoic, every bad thing becomes a new source of good. 

Marcus Aurelius said it this way,

“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in your way becomes the way.”

How Happy People See The World
11:44

How Happy People See The World

 

Did you know that happy people see the world differently?

 

They don't wear rose-colored glasses. They have a better way:

 

1) Happy people realize that being alive includes problems.   

 

2) Happy people accept that challenges are a privilege.  

 

3) Happy people get frustrated but don't give up. Problems mean everything is normal.

 

4) Happy people take responsibility for solving problems. 

 

5) Happy people deal with everything life can throw at them, get a great nights sleep, and do it all over again.

 

Finally, when you think like a happy person, most problems never show up in the first place.

Life. Work. Balance.
14:27

Life. Work. Balance.

A long time ago, you found yourself graduating high school and thrust into real-life.

I’m sure you gave lots of thought to your future. Then again, you were young. Twenty years later, things can look very different.

Over the years, I’ve learned something about working for a living:

1) Chasing money, advancement, and being significant will keep you busy. It will also blind you from other areas of life you would enjoy.

2) Pursuing passion and mission without considering real-life is a recipe for frustration.

Choose career opportunities that allow you to run fast, feel important, make money, and will enable you to serve your passion and mission.

Success In The Gig Economy
11:39

Living in today’s GIG economy is changing lives for millions.  And, it's only going to get bigger - because it’s all about taking care of people.

 

Use this equation to open more doors in this new way of life: Problem + Cost = Opportunity.

 

Everybody has a problem that needs solving. Is it money? Time?Freedom?

 

Here’s how you convert problems into your success:

 

1) Recognize the problem that a customer, employee, friend, or family member is having.

 

2) Identify how much that problem is costing them. It could be financial or emotional.

 

3) Present a solution and show them how you will help them solve their problem and make the pain go away.

 

Everybody has challenges. When you can solve them, you create an opportunity for yourself.

How to Make the Law of Attraction Work for You
09:07

Get the Coaching you need to take your life to the next level at https://motivationtomove.com.

I've always believed the Law of Attraction should be called Law of What You Think About Most.

 

Like attracts like. What you think about, you get. 

 

If you think, "I won't get it because I never do" - you are correct.

 

Dreaming of a new life while focusing on your current problems is a sure way to keep spinning your wheels.

 

The trick is to focus your attention and actions on what you want to attract. That will require a dedicated effort. Vision Boards, lists of Goals, daily journaling are all great ways to stay on track.  

 

The Law of What You Think about is magical and straightforward

 

Decide what you want. Believe it is possible. Focus on the future, not the past. Don't stop until you get it.

Leadership Skills You Forgot

 

There is nothing new in life. If you want to be a great leader, learn from those who know how to lead.  Do what they do.

 

"Good leaders take a little more than their share of the blame, a little less than their share of the credit." - Arnold H. Glasgow

 

"Lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate. Take the front line when there is danger. People will appreciate your leadership." - Nelson Mandela

 

"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want to be done because they want to do it." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

 

"A person who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd." - Max Lucado

 

"Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected." - Steve Jobs

 

Have a great weekend!

Don't Get Stuck In Learning Mode

 

Have you ever felt as if something was holding you back? You might be spending too much time learning.

 

The challenge begins when your mind gets confused. Since it can't tell the difference between perception and reality, learning feels like doing. You might be getting smarter, but you are not moving forward.

 

Here are some simple truths:

 

1) Learning a new skill is fun and required for a better life.

 

2) Learning alone will not produce results.

 

3) You don't have to learn everything.  You already more than enough to get started.

 

When you transform your knowledge into physical action, you will make massive progress. It's time to get moving

Daily success is a habit. When you figure out what works, and do it every day, the success you deserve is around the corner.

 

1) Daily Top 3: We all have tons to do. Make sure at least 3 of those items are Goal and Dream oriented - not to-dos.

 

2) Triage Your List: Because you put it on the list last week doesn’t mean it still needs to be done. Be brutal.

3) Block Your Time: What gets scheduled gets done.

 

4) Allow Unschedule Time: Leave space on your calendar for unexpected items. Never schedule more than 50% of your time.

 

5) Personal Development: Take the time to work on your body, mind, and spirit. You will make your World, and THE World, a better place

 

It’s simple.

 

Success arrives when you figure out what actions get the results you want and do them every day of your life.

Simplify With Adequate Information

 

Is your head always spinning with information overload?

 

It’s easy to do in today’s busy world. It can also be paralyzing and dream stopping.

 

Instead of soaking in every piece of information and confusing yourself, the secret is -

 

1) Know your outcome. If you know where you are heading, it’s easier to see which road to travel.

 

2) Commit to tossing out 80% of the noise and clutter that currently fills your day.

 

3) Choose to act only on information that you deem adequate.
In other words, you don’t need to know everything before you start.
Focus on Adequate information, in sufficient detail, that is reasonable and practical. All that counts is moving closer to your Goal.

Do you dream of greatness?

 

Instead of rushing through life, why not change your mindset and actions? It's time that you can become the person you were meant to be?

 

Here are a couple of ideas:

 

1) Use your imagination to form images, thoughts, and sensations in your mind. You don’t need anybody’s help. Trust yourself.

 

2) Enthusiasm is living life with excitement and PASSION. Only involve yourself in activities that make you enthusiastic.

 

3) Persistence is the art of doggedly persisting until you get what you want. Stay in the game long enough, and you’ll get what you want.

 

4) Having faith is living your life with trust and confidence - even when you’re not sure.

 

Imagination. Enthusiasm. Persistence. Faith. That’s a great life.

 

Now, imagine how good it could be with Gratitude?

Jump Into Your Dreams

 

Steve Harvey is a funny and wise man.

 

He says, "You must jump.

 

If you want to be successful, you must jump into your dreams, take a leap of faith, and go for it."

 

Many times we stand on the cliff of life and watch others enjoying the success you deserve.

 

They jumped, their parachute opened, and life is good.

 

You must jump.

 

When you finally decide to jump, your parachute will not open right away. You will get bumped and bruised, but, your parachute will open.

 

You must jump.

 

If you want success, you must jump to your dreams so your parachute will open. If you don’t jump, it will never open.

No Limitations. Good Consequences.

No Limitations. Good Consequences.

 

What if everything you did came with no limitations and good consequences?  

 

Limitations are useful. Staying within speed limits keeps you from getting tickets. That’s good. Limiting yourself to a job that doesn’t serve you? That’s bad. 

 

Is it fear of change that creates limitations?

 

Is it the fear of adverse consequences?

 

Imagine what you could do if you never limit yourself, and all the consequences were good?

 

Exciting - right?

 

I think you should roll through your day with that in mind. Believe that you are ten feet tall and bulletproof.

 

I bet the Universe will prove you right.

Under Complicating Life

 

Do you ever wish you had a less complicated life?  

 

Unless you flying an airplane or performing brain surgery, right now, you are likely overcomplicating.  

 

These steps will help:

 

1) Practice the rule of “Good Enough." Perfectionism is over-rated.

 

2) Say NO. Repeat it. Say NO a lot. 

 

3) Focus on your daily life experience. Prioritize creating a great day - every day.

Leonardo da Vinci said, ”Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

 

Why not show everybody how sophisticated you are today?

7 Steps to Life-Long Success

7 Steps to Life-Long Success

 

I'm a fan of Stoic Philosophy. While it may be over 2,000 years old, its practicality is still useful.

 

I wonder if these steps will help you get more of what you want?

 

1. If you're going to learn and succeed, be humble. There is always someone smarter, more successful, and wiser. 

 

2. Find the right scene. Choose your friends and situations. If you want to rise in life, you can’t allow yourself to be held down by others.

 

3. Protect your time. Seneca said, "We're tight-fisted with property and money, yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers." Life is short.

 

4. Never do anything out of habit. Always think about how you can do things better and always question yourself.

 

5. Keep it simple — do your job. Approach every task as if it were your last because it very well could be.

 

6. Adapt and learn from failure. Using your success to justify complacency is common. It's also easy, which is why most people do it. You can do more and be better.

 

7. Live below your means. The more you need work to maintain your needs, the less you will enjoy what you have.

 

Everything in life comes down, keeping things simple and mastering the basics. That's how you get the success you deserve.

Starting Over For The Last Time

 

What actions would you take if forced to start over again?

 

Here’s what I would do:

 

1) Get absolute clarity and focus. What ONE thing you want your life and lifestyle to be?

 

2) Confirm your WHY. Success takes time. Long-lasting success isn’t guaranteed. Owning a strong WHY will allow you the flexibility to persevere forever.

 

3) Clear the clutter. You can’t move forward with the weight of your past on your shoulders. Debt? Bad relationships? Health issues? Fix them and move on.

 

4) Take control of your schedule and your time. Of everything you own, time is your most valuable asset. Don’t squander it.

 

5) Massive Imperfect Action. You will never be stuck as long as you keep shaking the trees. Do something. Anything. Notice your results. Do it again. Do it until you get what you want.

 

It’s not about learning more. It’s about taking control of the basics and using what you already know.

What's Blocking Your Success And How To Fix It.

 

If you find yourself spinning your wheels, remember this -

 

You must know where you are before you can go where to want to be.

 

It's time to take an inventory of your life as it exists today.

 

A few hours and examining your finances, jobs, relationships, responsibilities, and dreams can be eye-opening. It's also the only way to deal with many of the demons that hold us back.

 

Yes, it can be scary to dig into the dark corners of your life. But, I promise, when you shine a light on everything you don't want to see, you'll find yourself free and able to move toward to your dreams.

 

I'll repeat it.

 

You must know where you are before you can go where you want to be.

How To Change Your Life in 30 Days or Less

 

Only a crazy person thinks you can change everything about your life in 30 days - right?

 

Call me crazy, but everything I've ever done had its roots in a 30-day sprint.

 

Here's how you do it:

 

1) Set what Napoleon Hill calls a Major Definite Purpose, otherwise known as a Big Ass Goal.

 

2) Stop negative self-talk. Others may throw sticks and stones; don't throw them at yourself.

 

3) List all the reasons you CAN be successful. Make it a long list.

 

4) Decide that you will do whatever it takes to reach your goal. For the next 30 days, nothing will stop you.

 

When you are focused, willing to take massive imperfect action, and won’t take no for answer, the impossible becomes possible.

How to Master Your Mornings

 

Ask a successful person about the most crucial time of their day, and they’ll say, “Mornings."

 

How you use your mornings sets the pace for your entire day.  It’s best to keep things simple:

 

1) Lose your excuse that mornings are out of control madness. That’s how most people think. Decide that you CAN take control and you will.

 

2) You may not be aware of morning behaviors that are not serving you. Turn off your morning autopilot and be intentional.

 

3) Reward yourself by taking a few minutes to ponder your life. Consider any changes you may want to make.  Spend your day making them happen.

 

You will be amazed at how a few minutes will transform your day.

Stepping Into Your Success Spotlight

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 move 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 has BIG dreams and hard-won experience chasing them, 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 very big fish in a very big 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?
