Success Information

Average Sucks!

The very first "motivational speaker" I heard as an adult was a gentleman named Mort Utley.  I experienced his speech in May of 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee, at the end of a week of Sales School with the Southwestern Company.

Five Tips for Perfect Transition Decisions

You're considering a new career, new place to live or new business, retirement, or any other move. You ask, "Will I be happy?" If you remember the old, old song, "What will be" may not be the answer you're looking for.

What Am I Going To Do With The Rest Of My Life?

Unexpected life changes. Anticipated transitions.

Make The Second Half The Best Half

Something happens when you come to the intersection called mid-life; you can look back in retrospect and see your life from an entirely different context. For many this mid-life review brings about a sense of urgency that ignites what is formally called "the mid-life crisis".

Life Versus Lifestyle

There is a difference but what constitutes a life and what constitutes a lifestyle is pretty ambiguous.  One thing that seems pretty clear to me is the lifestyle is observable while a life can have many internal aspects to it.

The One-Two Punch for Success: Authenticity and Alignment

Have you ever felt as if you are beating your head against a wall?  You repeatedly try to reach a goal but you never seem to achieve it.  Instead you are struggling rather than moving forward and achieving your goals with grace and ease.

The Reasons Why We Fear Success

In the book, The SHOCKwealth System?, it is discussed that there are four fears that must be overcome in order to experience true success. One of those fears is the fear of success itself.

The Gravitational Pull of ANTs, WORMS & FEARS

What is an ANT? An ANT is an acronym for Automatic Negative Thoughts. What is a WORM? A WORM is a metaphor for deep-seated, unconscious beliefs that lye dormant in our consciousness analogous to a computer virus that only activates when a certain button is pushed on our keyboard.

Control Your Fear Before It Controls You

"Fear Factor" is one of my favorite TV shows.  It highlights the courage of the participants to engage inthe most fearsome and disgusting acts.

Live Your Life To The Fullest

Do you sometimes feel that you're living a boring life?  Youjust can't seem to find anything exciting.  You wake up in the morning, then do the same old rituals.

How To Use The Past, Future, And Present In Attaining Success

Did you know that your past, present, and future can affectdirectly or indirectly your outlook in life?  THE PAST Have you ever done something that is so regrettable you couldn'tforgive yourself? Have you ever made a mistake that up to the present time you're still blaming yourself? Are you still torturingyourself with the thought that only if you could've done it differently, you're living a much better life right now? Good news for you!  You don't have to keep this burden in your heartfor as long as you live.  Release it.

Creating A Life You Love

Imagine that right now, right here, today? there is within your grasp not one but several opportunities to redesign specific aspects of your life so that the sum total is a life you absolutely love. Then imagine that the only thing standing between you and your opportunities is a closed mind, fear, habits, concern, worry, drama, or perhaps mental, physical, and emotional clutter.

Wait, Thats Not on the Map

Back from my amazing summer excursion, a month long drive through Spain!  Well, I mean, I didn't do any of the driving, my partner did.  See, I only know how to drive an automatic and since we have a stick here in Belgium, my partner kindly agreed to do all the driving.

Your Attitude Is The Lock On The Door, Or The Key To The Door Of Success
The American motivational speaker Denis Waitley said: "Your attitude is either the lock on, or the key to the door of success." That passage is the inspiration for this article, owing to its message of self-ownership. I consider the Self to be the key to the door of success, an attribute successful people recognise because of years having toiled away in their respective fields. The Self is the enduring psyche hidden underneath the ego. Call it spirit or soul, yet many recognise this timeless quality as the core to one's success.

The Principle Of The Golden Goose And The Eggs
Clearly, we all had at one point in our life a golden goose that laid eggs. It doesn't matter if it relates to finances, relationships, business, nature or anything else; all of us have been there. We as humans are creatures which often generate an action that would destroy the profitability of this asset.

How to Be Observant - The Road to Success
When you have big dreams and goals that you have not yet achieved, you almost certainly discover that the road to success is far from easy and always under construction. The journey along the way is great, yes, but it is, in fact, the times when you are often the most uncomfortable.

To Be Successful, Be Prepared To Be Doubted
In truth, to be successful, we have to be prepared to be doubted and often lose before even truly win. Success is a lifelong journey to walk on and ascent. While most of us begin our journey on what seems a smooth road, it quickly changes, bringing us uninvited turns, and unknown ups and downs.

The Difference Between a Dream and a Calling
I think that people get having a dream and having a calling mixed up. And while they can happen concurrently, there is a distinct difference between the two.

Living The Life You Want Is Possible
You dream of a better existence but yet, you do not know how to create the life you want. Ideas and desires float in your mind, but you doubt your power to transform the life you imagine into a reality because you feel that you are living under circumstances that seem to make it impossible.

The Golden Words For A Successful Life
It is pretty obvious that when we use golden words to our advantage, we get a better chance for a successful life. These words which work like magic push us to keep going and not quit. Yet, too many of us give up too soon when it comes to sticking with a change or a brand-new thing in our lives.

This Is Why The World Doesn't Need More Successful People
Everywhere you look nowadays there are entrepreneurs, start-ups and successful people rising from obscurity to outlandish success. Judging from the title, you would be forgiven for thinking I'm proposing there's no place for successful people in the world. But that is not my intention. The point I wish to underscore is the view of promoting the peacemakers, healers, the storytellers and the socially responsible. This is about considering whether an alternative definition of success is possible and sustainable in the coming decades.

Alpha Point - The Truth About The Law Of Attraction and Manifestation
The Law of Attraction. There's a lot of ballyhoo about the topic. Does it work? What's it do? Why can't I use it like all those others? From the article: "Someone once said that luck was the intersection of opportunity and hard work. Well, the Law of Attraction is similar. The LOA works when you put your mind and your actions together and that intersection seems to be the Alpha Point, as I call it. It's where the manifestation takes place." It may not be all rosy or cutsie like some of the 'wish' books tell you. But once you find your Alpha Point, you won't need cutsie. You'll have the real thing. It's not so difficult to discover your Alpha Point. This article will get you on the right track. And when you're up and running, you can expect miracles! The universe is on your side.

The Definitive Habits For Success
To live an abundant life, you should know that there are some definitive habits for success which you could use. These habits are a shared trait I see among the most successful people and are as much of a formula as they are an outcome. While some are simple, others require discipline and persistence.

Successful People Think Outside The Box
Often times, most successful people rely on their so-called irrational thinking outside the box to follow a course and succeed, even if they are also gifted rational thinkers. They understand beyond reason that they cannot be boxed in if they want to accomplish their vision.

How Do You Make Important Life/Career/Business/Relationship Decisions?
Few decisions in life are ever really easy. In fact, some of them might appear to be easy on the surface or with a quick view or when we look at just the short term impact, but if we took the time to take a longer view of even the simplest decisions we might find that they have a bigger influence on our life than we might have considered if we had made them differently.

This Is Why Working Harder on Yourself Than Your Job Is The Key to a Great Fortune
The late American motivational speaker Jim Rohn knew something many people don't: success is an inside job. A good deal of your future success will arise from your mindset. It is no surprise that those who are successful encounter frequent setbacks and failures.

Your Key to Success, and How to Reach Your Goals
It is so easy to feel weighed down by concerns, worries, fears for the future, or sad because relationships are strained, uneasy, or you always seem to say the wrong thing. To get out of this groove and way of thinking can take some effort. Thought is energy and emanates out from us like radio waves, therefore feeling sad or negative doesn't help the situation.

Is Your Success Draining Your Happiness?
I am a health coach, not a business coach, but in the process of working with people to help them achieve whole-person wellbeing, I've learned the importance of knowing clients' personal and professional goals - especially at times of transition in their lives. Looking at work-life balance, financial goals and personal growth is an important part in helping people succeed in improving their health. Most of them want success more than anything else in their life.

How To Choose The Right Therapist for YOU
A good reputation is an insufficient guide. The rep may be based on clever publicity or by professional colleagues who like a particular therapist, especially if he or she devotes a lot of time to their organization's interests. Key question to ask such colleagues is "do they personally know any successfully treated clients"? Trust your own reactions to a potential therapist. Shop around. Isn't it worth spending as much time to select a good therapist as it would be to buy a car?

How To Have An Efficient Work Ethic To Be Successful
It is clear that to have an efficient work ethic to be successful you need to have strong habits and loads of determination. Some people have been educated by this code of action since childhood, while others have learned it later on through sport or duty, and the rest, well, ignored it entirely.

Is Jealously the Biggest Culprit in Thwarting Your Business Growth?
In this day of social media, do you find yourself holding back on personal success posts because of client or peer envy? If someone sees you enjoying the fruits of your labor, one never knows how they will react, either with snide comments or even a feeling that you are rewarding yourself on the bills they pay you? Do not let their jealousy thwart your work and life balance.

Do you want to move toward your goal of being a successful entrepreneur? If you do then it is time that you get moving. Time isn't waiting for you. And life is too short not to live out your entrepreneurial dreams. Making the leap into entrepreneurship can be a little scary, but just imagine breaking through that fear and manifesting entrepreneurial success. Stepping into your dream of being an entrepreneur can bring life freedom and financial freedom to you.

5 Ways To Improve Your Luck
Over the past many years, I have asked more than a thousand men and women this question: What do lucky people do that unlucky people don't do? Their answers have led me to conclude that five major characteristics distinguish the lucky from the unlucky. Furthermore, I am convinced that most people can improve their luck simply by incorporating these characteristics into their daily life.

Failure Is Good for You
Our parents, teachers, relatives and friends all tell us about success but no one talks about failure.Failure is a part of life and we should not afraid of failure. Failure is good for you because it provides you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes so that you become a more strong, determined and a more successful person.

Why This Simple Daily Habit Will Make You Become a Better Person
Journaling. Yes, this simple daily habit will make you become a better person, because the simplest habits are ones that produce the greatest results. It is the compound effect journaling offers that often goes unnoticed. Journaling has many unexpected benefits, one of which is improved mental and emotional wellbeing. Many people ruminate on problems that gnaw at them, sometimes for decades.

The Path To Success Is A Very Lonely Road
Most people do not seem to get the fact that the path to success is a very lonely road and is never a perfect one. In truth, it does not even occur in a straight line but rather in a sinuous one since reality on the way is full of ups, downs, twists, turns, obstacles, and setbacks. Not an easy feat to achieve!

Something Missing In Your Life?
No one in life has or gets everything they want, need or desire. Let me repeat - no one. Are you waiting for some desire or need to be fulfilled? Just had one satisfied? None of these? All of these? Boy, could I go on for pages with this stuff, but we both have better things to do so let me cut to the chase. You can't have everything in life you want but you can have something - you can have more.

Message From the Universe: Planning for Success
If you do not plan ahead, you wouldn't know what to do when success does arrive. Just like anything in life, you can plan things but also know that you can't control all outcomes. It is important to embrace the changes that will impact you positively or negatively. However, do not let any of these changes deter you from your goal. Believe it will happen and let the rest unravel.

Don't Waste Your Final Years On Being Old
As you read this I'm not sure how you define old so I won't disappoint you by giving you my age (although many of you know it) but let's assume "old" for many people is defined after they hit sixty? I'm sure many of you are so young you can't even imagine yourself that old and I'll bet many of you older than sixty never imagined you would be this old. Therefore, you have no interest in this article - but beware - you will be there before you know it. Just ask most of the older folks you know and I'll bet most of them will admit that the years have passed by so fast they couldn't even keep track of them.

Are You Ready for a Wellness Pill? Consider the Nature and Ethics of a Lifestyle Game Changer
Living a healthy lifestyle is hard. If it were easy, everyone would do it, for who wants to get sick if it can be avoided? Living a wellness lifestyle is even harder, another reason that even those who try to eat right, exercise regularly, manage stress, find meaning and purpose, sustain good relationships and otherwise succeed in ways in gaining and keeping optimal physical and mental wellbeing usually fail. But what if a pill were discovered that could change brain chemistry and enable just about anyone to succeed at wellness, effortlessly. Would you take such a pill? Have you thought about whether how such a pill might work and the ethics of taking such a medication? This essay presents some of the pros and cons of a wellness pill.

Do You Learn More From Your Success Or Your Adversity, Problems And Hardships?
Think this is a redundant, stupid or foolish question? Then why not go back to your daily "to do" list. If not - read on you might see a few things differently as a result. First of all, let me state the obvious - everyone in life faces adversity, trials, hardships etc. of some kind in life sooner or later. No one is privileged to escape pain while they live their life journey - whether financial, relationship, career, business or health.

How Is Where You Have Been Contributing To Where You Are Going?
Let me be clear at the outset - I'm not referring here to your last and next vacation. No one knows what tomorrow will bring. Everyone knows what yesterday brought them. So, the real question of life is simply - how do use what yesterday offered to help us get where life wants us to be tomorrow? There are lots of ways to consider this topic - relationships, careers, businesses, health issues, financial concerns etc. I don't have the time or ability to talk about each of these in a meaningful way so let me stick with a few general concepts.

This Is Why You Can Fail In Life And Still End Up Where You Need To Be
You can fail in life and end up where you need to be because failure is not permanent - giving up is. Countless articles are sprawled across the internet, advocating the key to success. However, the conversation around failure is less prominent. If there's one thing I've learned it's this: failure is not as disastrous as people believe it to be. Thomas Edison once said: "Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure." It may seem negative at first. Yet, if you move past the fears, failure is nothing more than a signpost guiding you in the right direction.

Don't Play The Victim Or You'll Be Victimised!
Life is a school - the more you go, the more you learn. And one of the things I've found out is that life victimises those who play the victim. In fact, the way it works is, if you lie down, you will be climbed upon; if you sit down, you will be sat on and if you play dead, you will be buried - it's as simple as that. If you want to win, you must get on your feet, wipe your tears, roll up your sleeves and get into the fight determined to win and don't quit until you do!

Advocates, Champions, Mentors - Got One?
I have never met anyone who has achieved sustained career or business success that did not have a champion, advocate, coach or mentor in their corner as they worked towards a dream, a goal or a vision. How about you? Are you the exception to this belief of mine and are you still trying to "go it alone" as you travel one step after another towards your unknown future?

Do You Know How Much Time You Have Left?
One day we are all going to die. I'm not trying to be negative here or a dooms-dayer but this is a simple life truth. The sad thing is that many people who think they have a lot more time may have a lot less than they know. Do you know anyone who recently passed away and didn't see it coming? I did - several as a matter of fact, but again I don't want you to think that all I am going to do is this brief article is focus on the negative death stuff - I'm not. But I did want to get your attention on a very important topic - living life with two things in mind - your now and your eternity.

Truth Doesn't Have Versions
The sky is falling - the sky is falling. The earth is flat. We are all going to die in this storm. The end of life as we know it will happen this year. Give me a break. Just because the speed limit is 70 MPH - I don't have to go that fast. Just because the expiration date on my eggs is three days past doesn't mean I have to throw them away. Made my point yet or would you like twenty-five more examples (just kidding)? Yes, I accept that some things I don't like or agree with are true but I also know that some things you believe are true are not - so - does the wind blow in both directions? Well yes. So, why then can't some people accept what is true when there is more than enough evidence and why do so many people live their lives in the realm of lies and obvious truths? I don't have 200 pages to deal with this so I'll do my best with just a few hundred words.

The Greater The Challenge - The Better The Learning
Facing a challenge today? Welcome to life 101. The question is what do you do with it? Or better still, how do you feel about it? Or, if you are really mature - what can you learn from it. I'm sure with this opening I have already lost some of you. Tired of useless, motivational mumbo jumbo from people who think they know it all but don't have a clue just spouting inspirational words they think we need when what we really need are practical ideas to use challenges as a learning tool? Believe me - I teach this stuff and I can tell you I am tired of pontification from too many famous people.

This Is How To Discipline Your Mind For Greater Success In Life
Most people's problems result from their thoughts about a situation outside of their control. Allow me to unpack this in more detail. Reflect on an area of life causing you frustration. What if you were to hand it to an outsider and ask them to assess it from their perspective? Would they feel the same about it? You might think not, because they are less invested in it than you are. Therein lies the problem. Your attachment to unpleasant circumstances blinds you to seeing it from another viewpoint.

Don't Waste Your Pain - Use It To Grow
No one can avoid pain whether emotional or physical. Sooner or later we are all disappointed or hurt by others and experience some type of physical pain. Trust me - if you haven't yet - It's coming - you can count on it. No one is immune to life's desire and attempts to teach us, help us learn or yes, even punish us for our misdeeds, stupid decisions or dumb behaviors.

How To Embrace An Attitude Of 'Hell Yeah' With Everything You Do
Given the many distractions that compete for our attention these days, it's not surprising people don't devote more time to what truly inspires them. We have a habit of tuning out anything that is not urgent. There was a time when a person was only contactable via a phone landline, with no answering machine. Nowadays, I can reach you through email, text messaging, instant messaging, social media, and dare I say, call you on your mobile device. Yet, this has not improved our lives other than make us more available.

Success: Do Some People Only Do Things To Impress Others?
If one was to think about something in their life that they have been doing for a little while, they may find that it doesn't take much effort for them to understand why they do it. This could be a time when one will think about their job, for instance.

Why The Most Successful NETWORK?
Have you ever wondered why the most successful people, seem to be visible, everywhere you look, seemingly know everyone, and are known to most people? Do you believe it is a coincidence, or does it require a significant amount of effort, energy, and commitment? While we each may define what success means to us, most would agree, there's more involved than merely making lots of money, because we have all witnessed some miserable, sad, unhappy millionaires!

Success: Can Feeling Worthless Cause Someone To Become Extremely Successful?
If one wants to find out if another person values themselves, they could take the time to see how well they are doing in life.

Cause of Failure and Success
Why some people fail and others succeed can be baffling. Sometimes it may even seem unfair. If our desire to succeed is as strong as theirs, and if we have the added virtues of philosophical refinement and emotional sophistication, why are we not all doing better than they are?
