Success Information

Average Sucks!

The very first "motivational speaker" I heard as an adult was a gentleman named Mort Utley.  I experienced his speech in May of 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee, at the end of a week of Sales School with the Southwestern Company.

Five Tips for Perfect Transition Decisions

You're considering a new career, new place to live or new business, retirement, or any other move. You ask, "Will I be happy?" If you remember the old, old song, "What will be" may not be the answer you're looking for.

What Am I Going To Do With The Rest Of My Life?

Unexpected life changes. Anticipated transitions.

Make The Second Half The Best Half

Something happens when you come to the intersection called mid-life; you can look back in retrospect and see your life from an entirely different context. For many this mid-life review brings about a sense of urgency that ignites what is formally called "the mid-life crisis".

Life Versus Lifestyle

There is a difference but what constitutes a life and what constitutes a lifestyle is pretty ambiguous.  One thing that seems pretty clear to me is the lifestyle is observable while a life can have many internal aspects to it.

The One-Two Punch for Success: Authenticity and Alignment

Have you ever felt as if you are beating your head against a wall?  You repeatedly try to reach a goal but you never seem to achieve it.  Instead you are struggling rather than moving forward and achieving your goals with grace and ease.

The Reasons Why We Fear Success

In the book, The SHOCKwealth System?, it is discussed that there are four fears that must be overcome in order to experience true success. One of those fears is the fear of success itself.

The Gravitational Pull of ANTs, WORMS & FEARS

What is an ANT? An ANT is an acronym for Automatic Negative Thoughts. What is a WORM? A WORM is a metaphor for deep-seated, unconscious beliefs that lye dormant in our consciousness analogous to a computer virus that only activates when a certain button is pushed on our keyboard.

Control Your Fear Before It Controls You

"Fear Factor" is one of my favorite TV shows.  It highlights the courage of the participants to engage inthe most fearsome and disgusting acts.

Live Your Life To The Fullest

Do you sometimes feel that you're living a boring life?  Youjust can't seem to find anything exciting.  You wake up in the morning, then do the same old rituals.

How To Use The Past, Future, And Present In Attaining Success

Did you know that your past, present, and future can affectdirectly or indirectly your outlook in life?  THE PAST Have you ever done something that is so regrettable you couldn'tforgive yourself? Have you ever made a mistake that up to the present time you're still blaming yourself? Are you still torturingyourself with the thought that only if you could've done it differently, you're living a much better life right now? Good news for you!  You don't have to keep this burden in your heartfor as long as you live.  Release it.

Creating A Life You Love

Imagine that right now, right here, today? there is within your grasp not one but several opportunities to redesign specific aspects of your life so that the sum total is a life you absolutely love. Then imagine that the only thing standing between you and your opportunities is a closed mind, fear, habits, concern, worry, drama, or perhaps mental, physical, and emotional clutter.

Wait, Thats Not on the Map

Back from my amazing summer excursion, a month long drive through Spain!  Well, I mean, I didn't do any of the driving, my partner did.  See, I only know how to drive an automatic and since we have a stick here in Belgium, my partner kindly agreed to do all the driving.

Second Chances
Do we all need a second chance from time to time? How about a third one? Or more? Ever had a second chance and ignored it? Ever had a second chance and in hindsight realized that it positively changed the trajectory of your life in some way? These questions are not redundant. We all get second chances, even more, that we ignore, don't realize or even spurn for any number of reasons. How about a second - health chance? How about a second - career chance? I know you are getting bored by my questions - see what I mean? I'm just trying to set up the foundation for this article and you have lost your patience for giving me a second chance or I have touched a sore spot in your life and you wonder where I'm heading.

How Do You Answer, Who Do You Think You Are?
Having a sense of who we are is important as the foundation stone we're able to build upon, but being excessively self-promotional can be a massive turn off. It's always good to leave space for others to offer their opinions, give praise and identify areas where they're ready and willing to recommend and enthuse about you. Allow others to be complimentary and let them become your ambassadors.

The Pain And Stupidity Of Comparison
Many people's idea of success is nothing more than a comparison of them to others. And who do you think these folks compare themselves too - people; who are smarter, wealthier, happier, more attractive, more influential, or just better off in some way? I seriously doubt it. These folks, to feel better about themselves in some or in any area of their lives must look better than others. I know, because there was a time in my past when I was guilty of this stupid life philosophy.

Is It Time For Some New Definitions?
Let me ask you - how many friends do you have on Facebook or LinkedIn that you don't know, have never met and have never talked to? If I had to guess, I'll wager it's most of the people on the various sites you are connected with. Am I right? OK, so after several years of social media redirecting and controlling our lives I believe it's time for a few new definitions. Agree, disagree, like, don't like - doesn't matter - I will guarantee how you define the following has changed in the past few or several years. I'll give you the traditional (dictionary) definition first them mine. Feel free to add yours if inclined.

So Much Of Life Is Wasted - Waiting
Waiting for the right job. Waiting for the perfect relationship. Waiting for the right weather. And, even just waiting for the right email or text response. Ever waited for something and in hindsight realized how much time was wasted? I know I have and I also know the pain of not being able to recapture those lost minutes, weeks or even years - they were gone forever. But it's not my intent to be morbid here but to suggest some creative, positive and even risky thoughts on what lies ahead, what is real, what you can control and what can or will elude you no matter how hard you try or how long you wait. First of all, there are three types of waiting - waiting for something to begin, waiting for something to end, or waiting for something to improve, change or maybe even recover

Does Success Require Humility?
Are all successful people humble? Are all humble people successful? Ever even thought about this idea? Before I share with you what I think are the important points regarding this concept; Humility (Dictionary) - a modest or low view of one's own importance; humbleness. Or - modesty, weakness, humbleness or Unpretentiousness. Agree with any or all of these?

Just Because It Feels Right Doesn't Make It Right
You would be amazed at how many people let their feelings rather than common sense or reality determine their attitudes, behavior, and decisions. Now, I'm not implying that all feelings are not appropriate or don't have value when it comes to life and career choices and actions but in a world driven today by so many emotional circumstances you might just want to pause or even check your feelings at the door before you make serious decisions or react or respond to various situations. Let me give you a couple of real examples that I have witnessed in the past several days while on the road speaking in several states.

A Few Stupid Words
Ever heard anyone say - "but"? How about "someday"? Or two of my favorites - "You need to, or you should." I could go on for hours about all of the dumb things people say either with negative intentions to hurt others or out of sheer ignorance on the impact that a few words can have on a relationship, a person's career or even their future. Think I am kidding? How about you - ask someone to marry you and they say "maybe!" Think that ever happens? You would be amazed. Or can I have a raise or a day off or can I attend a seminar? I'll let you know!

The Seven-Step Decision Process
Ever struggled with a decision? Dealing with one now? Ever made what you thought was a poor decision that turned out well? Ever made a good one that turned out poorly? I'm sure you don't need my repetitive babble as you have better things to do today, like spending time deciding or maybe spending over ten hours of your life today interacting with a device! Yep, these ten hours on your iPad, iPhone or computer etc. are decisions made on how you choose to spend your time whether wisely or aimlessly.

Incorporating a New 'Yes' Into Your Life: This Tip Helps
Adding something new to your day means that other things need to shift a bit. After all, there are only 24-hours to hold everything you want to do. Success builds on success, and it's tempting to say 'Yes' to lots of things. But you know what? There's nothing quite so helpful -- especially when you're busy -- as saying 'Yes' to daily activities that keep you happy, healthy, safe and self-referenced.

Can You Slow Down?
A question - do you think driving faster, eating faster, walking faster, working faster etc. or doing anything faster gives you one more minute of life? Do you think it really adds value to the quality of your life? If your answer is - yes to either question - don't bother taking the time to finish reading this article cause it will be a waste of your time. Everywhere I go or am I see people who just can't do everything faster and it amazes me that they all think this life approach is working or shall I say giving them more time to do other stuff in a hurry or to get somewhere else in a hurry or to - whatever - in a hurry.

Thinking Does Not Equal Knowing
Are you the smartest person in the room? Wish you were? Used to be but age or some other factor have stolen your influence? There was I time as a global speaker that I believed I was the smartest person in the room until after one speech many years ago I discovered I was probably the dumbest person in the room. What a wonderful and life-changing experience that was. Let me ask you - what do you actually - know - other than the basics; your name, address, relatives, job position etc.?

Learning Or Unlearning?
Learning is either a passive or active process, but unlearning must be and can only be an active process. But first a few important questions. What if you are learning stuff you don't need, will never use or is a waste of time and resources? What if you are learning stuff that is wrong or just really temporary? What if you are not learning what is or could be the most valuable lessons of your life as you move forward? What if some of your prejudices, opinions, history, attitudes - whatever - are preventing you from learning what you need to learn to be happy, successful or contented? Stupid questions? I don't think so.

Success Tip - Relentless Self Focus
If you want to be successful, quit focusing on other people's lives. As ironic as it is - becoming completely - and utterly - numb to external influence is one of (if not "the") most powerful ways to start to make significant progress in life. This article explores the merits and pitfalls of doing this.

Resistors Or Acceptors In Life - Who Wins
Today we are hearing a lot about "resistance" and not just in politics. Is this a serious issue when it comes to success, business and or career growth, better and improving relationships, health, and just about every life circumstances or does it matter either way your approach or attitude regarding this subject? The answer is - yes - whether you are a 'resistor or an acceptor' matters in many ways when it comes to areas of life that you might not have considered. Just because you disagree with someone does not make you a resistor and just because you go along with something does not make you an acceptor. What I am referring to here is a broader interpretation of these two life approaches and how either mindset influences, not just the bigger life issues but the subtle ones as well.

But before I do, let me be clear - your response to the following will tend to be an automatic quick reaction to what you read. In other words, you will be an example of what the point of the article actually is - you will have a yes, a no or a maybe response to the content of this article and what and how I share it. OK, now that that's out of the way, on to the substance.

Dear Millennials, This Is How We Can Beat AI And Keep Our Jobs
The fourth industrial revolution, if not managed well, is likely to increase the wage gap between men and women, innovators and safe players, educated and semi-literate people. It could create a scenario where the top 1% wealthy ones of the world get richer, more powerful, and the poor ones get poorer.

Self-Improvement Lies In Challenging The Historical Image In Your Mindset

Hard Work And A Little Faith Can Break Any Mountain, If You're Willing To Venture Into The Unknown
Let's get straight to the point as I want to speak from the heart. Sometimes, a goal or dream may seem insurmountable from where you stand. I know what it's like. Whilst people may consider you successful from the outside, there's a lot hidden out of sight they're unaware of. Success is subjective because no two people share the same outlook. One must find their own measure of success and live by that ideal, instead of believing they are a failure.

Success - "Ignore Everything"
If you're looking to accomplish anything in life (which is typically what "success" means), you'll quickly find that the biggest hurdle will be how distracted you become. Everyone gets distracted (it's human nature) - the trick is persisting no matter what.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Or What I Call The Stupid Or The Wise
From the outset let me be clear - I am including myself in all of the stupid categories that follow. Some I have finally learned to successfully manage and a few of them I am still struggling to get out of the stupid column and into the wise column. There, I've said it - now can we move on? So, just in case you didn't get it - I'm not preaching here just "splainin myself" remember him? If not, Google splainin to do or splainin myself. Ok, on to the point of this article - what qualifies for stupid stuff in life and why do we all keep doing it? I'll leave the opposite of them (wise stuff) up to you to figure out how to get out of the stupid column (if you are in it) and into the wise one.

Decide Who You Want To Be
Decide who you want to be because when you look around you, there are no guardrails on your life. The reality is that other people try to tell you that only certain things are right. They paint a dull path for you to follow such as go to school, get good grades, have a degree, get a decent job and retire.

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish
It is a fact that when you stay hungry, stay foolish for things, the more knowledge you acquire, and the better you get at succeeding. But the more you learn and do, the more you feel like you do not know much. The reason is that there is too much to possibly know. But in that is your power.

Focus On Yourself
If you're in business, are looking to enter the world of business, or are reading about various ideas to do with business, there is *one* piece of advice you need to succeed - focus on yourself. Now, obviously "focusing on yourself" is a broad statement and is not likely to win over many clients. The point is that if you're looking at becoming successful *in your own right* (IE as your own "boss"), you need to be completely focused on YOUR life, not someone else's.

You Have the Capability to Be Successful - Here Is How
There is most certainly no shortage of gurus who market their awesome "secrets" to become wealthy. Although without question some of the information they offer is helpful, it usually falls short of offering a satisfactory set of methods that really matter for the average person to reach his/her personal goals to achieve wealth. It is risky, partial-truths and that's not what most people require to become wealthy.

Keep Your Eyes On Your Goal
When you try to achieve something great in life, you always need to keep your eyes on your goal, working with the end in mind. Most people focus on the path and pursue only that, which is one of the things that make them stumble. Everything in life starts with an objective. So identify that first.

Internal Motivation VS External Motivation - The "Secret" To Monumental Success
Most people are "externally" motivated. They focus on "things" that are not inside their head; goals, products / items; experiences. Whilst these are great (and obviously provide people with a good set of motivation to get things moving), they are self limiting, and often ephemeral. The best people are actually motivated by "internal" factors (such as ideas, inquisition or just plain passion/interest). By following this internal guide of motivation, I've found it much more effective for me to achieve things I would have never even attempted before.

Givers Or Takers In Life - Who Wins?
At first glance you might assume that takers do better in life, get more and achieve greater success and even wealth than givers. However, depending on how you want to define these four outcomes consider; givers live longer, are healthier, impact others in a more positive and lasting way, get sick less and have greater inner peace and happiness and takers have the opposites of all of these. So, let me ask you - if you could choose which of the above group you would be in as you go through your life and its years and circumstances - what's your decision?

Knowledge Is The Most Powerful Weapon
Knowledge is the most powerful weapon you are ever going to have at your disposal. It is not a gun, a sword or a bomb because the strongest instrument you will have if you really want to make a change is what you learn. So, wherever you are right now in life, I want you to burn that into your mind.

How To Be A Champion In Life
There is no known shortcut on how to be a champion in life. Winning has very little to do with luck or chance but rather with the end result of all the work you put in. So, to have the heart of a winner, you need the dedication of one who knows what he wants and what he has to do to achieve it.
