"I want..."

March 31, 2010...

"I want..."

We all wish it. We all say it. 

"I want..." comes in big forms and little forms.

Consistency...and the 10 second voice

March 30, 2010...


Sometimes, it's hard to be consistent, huh?

The problem with losing consistency in goals and attitude is we start to
lose our momentum.

A leadership tip...

March 29, 2010...

What recommendations would I give to someone in a leadership position?

"Surround yourself with great people."

Getting your thoughts and feelings to match...

March 28, 2010...

One of the most valuable gifts
you could ever develop is the gift of "self-awareness."

Too Many Shortcomings...

March 27, 2010

By definition, "wet blankets" are people whose pessimism can stop
momentum in its tracks. They are the one who are always finding the
negative and shouting, "It can't be done!"

You may know one. Or two.


March 26, 2010

I met a guy today who had a tough start in life.

What happens next...

March 25, 2010...

I'm one of those people that have a hard time focusing on the lyrics
of entire songs. I start out listening to the words closely, but it
seems before long, I am captivated by an idea or phrase sparked by the
singer. It happened recently.

I was listening to a song by Natasha Bedingfield called Unwritten.
I can't even begin to tell you what the song is about, but I can tell
you that single word sent my brain spinning.


The Little Successes...

March 24, 2010...

Sometimes, we are so busy "wanting," "wishing" and "striving" towards
our BIG goals that we fail to celebrate all the great, small victories
in between.

Don't let yourself get caught up in that pattern.

Cherish your small victories. Let them add to your confidence. Let them
add to your knowledge that you "created" this victory."

Your Most Personal Property...

March 23, 2010...

Often, a large barrier to overcome on our goal paths are friends and family.

"Why do you want to do that?" "Well, you might make a small difference, but I don't see any long term impact potential?" "That's not a very good something else."

Goals and dreams are your most personal property.

Never be UNwilling

March 22, 2010...

Hesitancy is one thing. That is understandable, and that can be overcome.

But UNwillingness? That is a dream killer.

Never be UNwilling to take action on your dreams. Never be UNwilling to follow-through with every necessary detail. Never be UNwilling to work on what you want a little bit every day.

Add even one UNwilling to your world...and you have guaranteed that your life will be just a bit less exceptional than it otherwise could have been.

And who wants that?
