Celebrate Your Successes - Then Set Goals not Resolutions

As the year comes to a close, I want to pass on one of the most impactful exercises my former business coach had me do several years ago. The purpose of the exercise was to conduct a review of the previous year by writing down every success, win, and positive thing that I experienced - both big and small. So, I challenge all readers to Celebrate Your Successes! In my experience as a coach and manager, I have observed that most driven and success-minded individuals have a tendency to focus on what they haven't achieved yet. They are always moving...

Clarity of Purpose - Do you have it?

When you are setting your goals make sure... Read more →

Think and Grow Rich - The Original Version Restored and Revised

I recently received an email from Ross Cornwell who is the editor of “Think and Grow Rich!” (subtitled) “The Original Version, Restored and Revised”. This book is truly THE classic self-help, inspirational, and success book of all time. If you are going to read only one book on this subject - make it Think And Grow Rich. Napoleon Hill's classic started it all and has influenced just about every author and book written on the subject since then. Think and Grow Rich was one of the first books I read that greatly impacted me personally and professionally. It started me... Read more →

Keys to an Achievable Outcome

I have found the following questions to be useful to both me and those I coach when contemplating and writing goals or outcomes. This series of questions are the keys to achievable outcomes. When you take the time to consider each question after stating your desired outcome you will enhance the overall power and clarity of your written goals or outcomes. 1. What specifically do you want? Stated in the positive, present-tense, as if you already have it. Clearly defined, vibrant, written goals in all areas of you life. (Spiritual, Personal, Family, Business, Financial, Fun-Hobbies-Travel) 2. Where are you now... Read more →

How to Write Powerful Goals, Pt 1

Many people start the new year with “resolutions” ranging from working out to losing weight to quitting a bad habit. I, for one, don’t believe we need to wait until the dawning of the new year to get motivated and take action toward a desired goal. I also prefer to use the term goal or outcome not resolution. So, the first step is to set aside some quality time to work on your goals for the year. Download this Goals Worksheet to assist you in writing your desired goals/outcomes.

The Secret Movie 30 Day Challenge

Andy Wibbels, author of the excellent book on blogging (Blogwild) is sponsoring The Secret Movie 30 Day Challenge. Andy is a self-proclaimed "Secret Skeptic" and ranted on the Secret movie on this blog post.

So, I love that he is promoting this challenge to manifest what you want in 30 days - it's not too late to start! Just click here to get... Read more →
