Face Your Fears and Embrace Uncertainty

There are two types of people in life: 1) those who wait for evidence that their goals will work before they take the first step, and 2) those who rely on the evidence of their faith. If I had waited for the evidence that I "could" write books, I probably would have never written one—let alone four. One of the mysteries of life is trusting that one's efforts will pay off, while ignoring the momentary or repeated setbacks. Achieving goals takes patience and faith in one's ideas. Don't wait for evidence before you start taking action. Start by taking action, and the answers will unfold before your eyes. Trust the unknown. Trust the process. Take actions toward living your dreams starting today!

What Do Elton John and Michael Jordan have in Common?

The one critical factor that separates the high achiever from the low achiever is 'demanding the best from yourself.' In my book, “If You Think You Can!," this is Law #2. Like Michael Jordan and Elton John, demanding greatness from yourself is a key principle when it comes to success. Where do you need to give more than you currently do? Where do you coast when you should be hustling? What 'fundamentals' do you need to review again and again to maintain the competitive edge?

How to Increase Determination

Recently, my oldest son who is serving a mission in Romania for two years asked me this question: “How can a person increase their determination?" So, in response to his question here are a few thoughts I had while driving between clients. (Please pardon the audio quality.) I come up with five important steps, nestled with a dozen other principles, which are necessary for increasing determination. Principle number one is to have vision and purpose. Where there is a vision, there is no “have to," there is “want to." With vision, discipline comes easy. Without vision, discipline is a struggle. Put your focus on to an exciting end goal that you are committed to moving toward and then fully commit yourself to achieving it. Discover the next four principles for increasing determination. I hope you enjoy it!

Selfishness: The "Me Me Me Generation"

30 years ago there was a Time Magazine article titled, "The ME Generation" and 30 years later the magazine came out with the follow-up and titled it the "ME ME ME Generation". Get outside yourself and seek to serve others! No one gets to the top by themselves. I share a story I first heard by the legendary Og Mandino when he share the story about Albrecht Dürer and his brother. "No One Gets to the TOP by Themselves." Happiness comes as we unselfishly seek to serve others.

Finding Happiness: "Things Are Soulless"

One evening, I (TJ Hoisington) was sitting in a meeting with several hundred people in attendance. As I listened to the speakers and heard their stories, I was touched. Thoughts of “Things that Matter” started to flood my mind. After the meeting, as I was driving home, I decided to quickly stop by the studio and record what was on my mind. The message in this video has to do with HAPPINESS. Where does happiness come from? What will bring you more happiness and peace? All too often we seek after superficial things as the source of happiness - but it’s an illusion.

People chase after the things of this world only to find that they are living empty lives. Ultimately, people want to be happy, but often they are looking in the wrong places. Below are a few “truths” I share in this video:

“Things Are Soulless”
– Anchor yourself to higher values
– As you chase your dreams, don’t lose sight of what is most important
– Be humble
– Be quick to forgive and forget
–Love and serve people
– Say, “I love you!" more often

Eliminate the Ugliest Four-Letter Word

I have a quick suggestion for you. Eliminate the ugliest four-letter word from your vocabulary. Do you know what the ugliest four-letter word is? “CAN’T.”

When you repeat a word or a phrase over and over and over, you know what happens? A belief is formed. Beliefs can be positive and negative and they become a filter by which you screen your world. In other words, once you have a belief accepted as “truth and reality” you begin to filter your work accordingly. You begin finding the evidence in your world to make that belief true.

Take a little inventory and determine whether the words you use are leading you closer to your goals and your dreams, and if they are not, then eliminate them and replace them with something better.
