The Imperfection of a Moment Doesn't Have to Be Fatal

February 20, 2013…

Had a bad day or a moment lately? Does it have you down and feeling rejected? Don't let it build any more momentum than necessary. Stumbles in life are too be expected. Nothing we can do about them. But only we can choose whether or not we will let the stumble turn into a fall that keeps us down for a long time.

Here's How to Change Your Life Forever

February 19, 2013...

Here's one big life-changing secret that I promise you will change your life forever:

Let go of the fear of failing.

Take the Road That Leads to Your Best Life

February 18, 2013...

Unhappy with your life direction?

1. Don't focus on the road you didn't take YESTERDAY.
2. "Go the extra mile" on the road you can take TODAY.

Yesterday is gone. Sure, we can learn from what didn't go right, but today is what you have. Don't let yesterday limit your dreams or your confidence.

Actions Create Change. Not Wishes.

February 16, 2013…

"Tomorrow…tomorrow…tomorrow." Most are always wishing tomorrow will be better. They want it to be. They need it to be.

One big problem: tomorrow will never be better unless the actions that created "today" change. Actions are what create events. Not wishes.

Risk Taking Now Avoids Regrets Later

February 15, 2013…

Know the best way to live a life without regrets? Become a big-time risk taker. Now.

When opportunity knocks, don't assume that the knock will come again later when you are more prepared. There is no guarantee that it will. Opportunity just doesn't work that way.

It's Your Time to Live! Now!

February 14, 2013…

Limited effort achieves limited success. It is not rocket science. Just understand the more limited your efforts to create change, you really have no realistic reason to complain or moan about the direction your life is going.

My suggestion? Don't live life setting inconsequential goals. Don't just exist. Don't wait until your old and wish, "I should have taken the risk." Now is your time.

There is a Better Way to Live

February 13, 2013…

Ever hear of the expression "walking unconsciousness"?

Are You a "Minimalist"?

February 12, 2013…

Are you a "minimalist?"

In the way I am choosing to use it, are you a person who puts in the least amount of effort possible…and even looks for ways to avoid putting in effort?

1. At work, do you sneak in time on the internet to play?
2. In your health, are you more apt to blame bad health issues on your DNA?

The Answer Is Not Found In Words...But Actions

February 11, 2013…

If you were asked the question…"Do you put in the minimum…or the maximum?"…what would your answer be?

1. At work?
2. At home?
3. In your friendships?
4. In your goals?
5. In your health?
6. In exercise?
