Life is a Voyage…

This is of my favorite quotes of all time. In fact. I’ve made it a mantra of mine and I advise the people who attend my “Be the Hero” events to do the same. In life, we have no control over where we were born, the way we look, our family, the place we grew up, etc. But we have absolute control over our choices and ability to use these things to have a successful life. Just because you were “born this way” (apologies to Lady Gaga) doesn’t mean that you are forever fated to remain in those same circumstances. In a meeting with the legend Brain Tracy last week, I learned that 87% of all billionaires in the world today came from poor or low middle class families. Life isn’t always about the cards you’ve been dealt. It’s how you play with them that counts. A person doesn’t have to be a victim of their circumstances. You can use your unique situation to your advantage. Don’t know how? Write me today and I’ll help you do it! Happy Sunday!

The Courage of a Soldier

Success is not for the faint of heart. Success is not for the pretenders. Success is not for the dabblers. Success is for those who give it their all. Success is for those who genuinely throw themselves headlong at their intended goal. Success is for those who are courageous enough to buck the tide and stand firm in the face of all obstacles. Blessed, therefore, are they who seize upon their dream and do not let go until they see it become reality. It will truly be a hard fight, but the courage of a soldier is what wins the war! Have a wonderful Friday!

Success and Failure Happen in our Minds!

Thought for your Day: It is in the mind where success and failure happen. True, we don’t have much say in all the circumstances, conditions and events around us. Some things are truly out of our control. But what we can control is how we view them and how we respond to them. Our outlook on them determines our reaction towards them. A massive step towards success in any area of your life is realizing that it is not the circumstances that determine where you are and where you go from here, but rather your decisions and your choices–choices fuelled by the right mindsets and attitudes. You can change your life at any moment. All you need to do is change your mind!

Look Positively at the Process

Success takes hard work. Productivity is a tough process. Achieving can taxing on your mind and body. If we focus on the difficulties of obtaining success, we lose the power to pursue it and often fall short of the goal. Rather, let us focus on the joy, the happiness, the fulfilment, and the pleasure that comes through achieving our goals and let that motivation power us forward. Have a wonderful weekend!

Habits are Important

Thought for your day. Habits and rituals are the basis building blocks of success. Give me an average man who can consistently perform at a particular level–for I know that I can count on him–rather than a brilliant man who only performs in patches. Big success requires faithfulness in doing the little things every day. What are your habits? Do they bring you success?

(PS: If you feel you can improve in this area, I provide personal and business coaching to help you build the habits and rituals of success!)

Teamwork is Key!

Yesterday, I presented a business strategy to my board of directors. I was sure I had thought things out impeccably and had covered all the bases. However, one person saw a solution that would solve a particular problem within six months, whereas the solution I had for it would take twice that amount of time.

No one person has all the answers. Each one of us is smart, intelligent, intuitive, and blessed with an amazing super computer within our head. However, that doesn’t mean that we see the entire picture all the time. There are many variables that we may see or understand that can have mammoth affect on our plans. Each person processes information differently and each person sees things that others may or may not see, because of their various paradigms. So when it comes down to making decisions, never fail to get the help of others. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Change Your Routines

Thought for your day. Routines are good, but if they are not regularly re-evaluated, they could end up becoming more harmful than helpful. In order to experience success in any area of your life, one must put rituals into place in order to work towards it. However, if the focus ever slips off from the principle that you are following to merely fulfilling those rituals on a daily basis, you are in jeopardy of losing the success that you had. As one of my favourite quotes goes, “The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results!” Have a great Tuesday!
