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.

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.

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!

Is What You Say Always Consistent With What You Believe
There is a Native American legend that says - you will only get into Heaven leaning on the shoulders of someone you helped while you were here. So I figure if I have helped a few million people around the world as a speaker and author I will have a better shot. Well I once told this story to an audience and at the end someone came up to me and said they were offended by the analogy of Native Americans and Heaven. So I asked them if they were also offended by my hiking story and its reference to nature and courage and they looked at me like I was crazy. I decided to ask them one more - that if my reference to my favorite color being Kelly Green offended them and guess what - they just walked away from me and the conversation.

Finding Your Wealthy Place - Five Steps of Entering Your Wealthy Place
You can enter into your wealthy place. It is important however to indicate that such is not an overnight thing. It is a process. Never try to take shortcuts. The good news is that there are sure steps you can follow to reach your wealth place. Not every believer knows that he or she has a wealthy place. That is the reason some believers do not bother working on becoming wealthy. Maybe you are asking yourself, "What is the wealthy place?" This is a place of more than enough. There has to be some fighting and perseverance to enter there. In order to enter into your wealthy place, you need to cooperate with God. If there is something that can hinder God's full manifestation in our lives, it is our unbelief. Otherwise God is more than willing to take us to our wealthy place.

Possible Or Impossible - You Decide

Possible - feasible, practicable, practical, viable, within the bounds/realms of possibility, attainable, achievable, workable, doable - Impossible - not possible, out of the question, unfeasible, impractical, impracticable, nonviable, unworkable, unthinkable, unimaginable, inconceivable, absurd, unattainable, unachievable, unobtainable, unwinnable, hopeless, impractical, implausible, far-fetched, outrageous, preposterous, ridiculous, absurd, impracticable, unworkable, futile.

In other words, whether you are a doctor, lawyer, school teacher, minister, business person, or you have some other vocation.

Ever failed at something that you could have avoided if you had listened to the advice or council of others?

Not Reaching Your Goals? Here Are The Two Major Reasons
Having been an avid goal setter for many years and teaching this concept to audiences around the world during my career, I recently decided it was time to fess up with what is important when it comes to goals that are not achieved. So, here we go - there are two types of people when it comes to goal setting: People who set goals and these folks have two outcomes - they achieve some and they fall short of others. Then there are people who don't set goals and often achieve stuff they didn't plan for and don't achieve stuff that isn't important to them.

Interview Tips - 7 Points to Avoid in Your Resume
An effective resume really should have powerful content and look aesthetically pleasing. Resumes are extremely subjective - design as well as the content fluctuate greatly determined by who will be in control of the creation. Some applicants are creative which is reflected by unique layouts or infographics while, others display a classical / formal style. As a specialist recruiter, I can safely say I've seen the excellent, the bad and the downright ugly now. While the concept seems moderately straightforward theoretically, a lot of miss the objective. Within my annual overview of 5,000+ resumes I have come to define 7 distinctive items to avoid if you want it to meet the standard and make certain your resume gets a look into from the hiring manager next time.
