Success is Not Something To Be Wished for…But Created.

February 9, 2013…

Are you one of those people who do what they say they will do in life?

1. Do you take pride in your work…and give people and events your best?
2. Do you pay attention to the little details that take things from "good"…to "great."
3. Do you put forth the extra effort necessary to have the highest quality in your relationships?

I Don't Like It, But I Know It's Good For Me

February 8, 2013…

Accountability is not a word many of us like to hear; I know it is not one I like to here for sure. But yet, I know how important the concept is if I really want to succeed.

Accountability get things done. It keeps me consistent. It makes things happen. Without accountability, too much is left to chance. And why would I want to take THAT kind of risk on my success, life and future?

Create a Better Life: Tips 5, 6 and 7

February 7, 2013…

Here are tips 5, 6 and 7 (of 7) that can make your life more positive, passionate and purposeful:

5. Don't flow with the "current"…the current news, the current emotion, the current moment. Don't let the "current" affect your day or your direction.

6. Surround yourself with positive people. Negative people will feed your negativity and all parts of your life will suffer.

Create a Better Life: Tips 3 and 4

Here are tips 3 and 4 (of 7) that can help you find balance, accountability and life success:

3. Take a baby step working towards a big goal every day. It keeps life invigorating…and keeps you playing "offense" in life (moving forward) rather than always playing "defense" and fending off challenges. Designate a specific time…"Goal Time"…and make it happen.

Create a Better Life: Tips 1 and 2

Here are tips 1 and 2 (of 7 that will follow!) that can help you stay focused and on track:

1. Get in the habit of exercising every day…even if it is a short 15-minute walk. When we have good physical energy…our emotional, mental and spiritual energy also improves.

"What Did You Accomplish Today?"

It happens. The moment that hits us like a brick wall and causes us to lose all positive momentum. We stop chasing the goal, we lose our positive edge…and then we quit.

Moments happen. And so does losing our mojo.

The "Sum" of the "Somes"...Part 2

February 3, 2013…

As a writer and a speaker, I often find myself in isolated working situations. Yet my success is not tied to just my performance, but also to the performance of those around me: marketing people, editors, event planners. I need those people…just as much as they need me.

Nothing Beats the "Sum" of the "Somes"

We each are each unique, and we should never forget to proclaim our rarity.

Adding "Emotion" to "Motion" Turns Good to Great

February 1, 2013…
 
Adding "emotion" to your "motion" makes all the difference in the world. Passion adds fire to purpose, and it's exciting to both your personal spirit and to others around you when positive emotion is brought into the mix. Adding positive "emotion" is what takes your game to the next level. It turns "good" into "great."

When "Great" Is Possible..."Good" Doesn't Cut It.

When "great" is possible..."good" just doesn't quite cut it.
