Self Improvement

  1. Achieve Your Goals With This Mind Trick
    Zig Ziglar had a quote which read: "An optimist is someone who goes after Moby Dick in a rowboat and takes the tartar source with him."
    And I wanted to take a moment to expand on that quote today, because metaphorically "Moby Dick" is the big dreams we are chasing.
    But how many of us really believe we will create them? In the back of our mind is a seed of doubt... an uncertainty... or an unconscious belief that "I can't really do that."

  2. Motivation Theory
    Here's another Zig Ziglar quote I came across the other day: "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily." Nice quote. And it really pulls on the fact that consistency is the key - that nothing just happens and lasts forever...

  3. Baton Leadership Lessons From LA Philharmonic Conductor Dudamel
    Imagine a crusty group of seasoned professionals standing, applauding and cheering a 28 year-old leader who has turned a same-old-same-old product into something fresh and exciting! This does NOT happen-particularly when the professionals are members of the Israel Philharmonic. But under the baton of young Maestro Gustavo Dudamel, orchestra members did just that. Now, Southern California music lovers are witnessing the same magic of a man who started as a tot playing in El Sistema, the publicly funded program for children in Venezuela.

  4. Public Speaking Skills: First Principle of Great Communication
    We all need public speaking skills, even if it's only the skill of asking a question at a local meeting of the Parents and Teachers' Association. Over the years I have seen even very experienced public speakers forget the most basic principle of oral (spoken) communication. Before sharing with you some general advice about principles of oral or spoken communication, I am assuming that you know that great presentations take hours, sometimes days, of dedicated preparation.

  5. Introvert Marketing: Success Models May Help You Attract Business Your Own Way
    In my survey of more than 300 introverts, less than half were able to name a single notable person with their personality whom they consider a model of success. One respondent commented, "I guess I have assumed that if someone is successful enough for me to know of them, they aren't really an introvert." It's easy to see how the conviction that success proves extroversion can get set in people's minds. We're taught that if you want to be successful, you must get out there and hustle.

  6. Giving While You're Living, Or When You're Dead Instead?
    Over the years, there have been many opinions and thoughts as to the legitimacy of Cash Gifting as a viable and honest means of generating cash. But at the heart of Cash Gifting is a fundamental principle that is often overlooked and convoluted with greed and the love of money. This principle is quite simple... to help your fellow man (or woman) through giving, and in return be recognized and rewarded for your participation in the giving process.

  7. Joy at Work, Work at Joy
    The first decade of this new millennium has taught us some important lessons, which many of us experienced personally in less pleasant ways. We got confronted with traumatic job loss, foreclosure of property, and overall, an increased degree of insecurity in our daily life. It is therefore understandable that many cannot yet appreciate the message enclosed in these occurrences. Yet, it is there, as clear as daylight: we need to reevaluate our priorities, reconsider our mindsets and values, and reframe our lives.

  8. Thought In The Head Equals Money In The Hand (Seeing Thought As Currency Brings Us More Money Than Seeing Money As Currency)
    When we understand how and why "Thought" is the Currency and Not Money as The Currency, we will have all of the money we need and want for whatever we want and need it for. How do we reach this understanding?

  9. How You Can Beat 97% Of The Pack
    When I was seventeen I remember doing a program called Discovery. I think I was the only teenager who paid for half the fee and begged and pleaded their parents to let them go. Basically, it was a course which taught a lot of life skills from motivation to how to deal with conflict... kind of like an Anthony Robbins for teenagers. Anyway, I remember them doing this exercise at the course where they talked about how when a plane flies from Sydney to New York, it is off course for about 97% of the flight.

  10. Chickens Banging On The Golden Goose Success Door
    As human beings we are not hapless victims, some of us are just chicken. We have no excuse other than, we are just chicken.. Why? Because we are given methods by which we can design the course of our lives. And we can use this knowledge to help others, whom are so deep in despair, that they can not see or feel anything that might help them out from where they are. Part of The Good News is this: With higher knowledge comes the wisdom and the practice to use it.

  11. Focus On Your Strengths
    Last year, I took over a small second office next to the one I have now. I've had it painted and recarpeted. But setting it up and getting my current office painted / recarpeted seems overwhelming. I know. I know. I've got to make the time to plan out how I want it to all look, what I want to get out of it, where I want what, etc. because my current office just feels too congested. But I find it overwhelming.

  12. Why I Admire Bob the Builder
    Today I want to talk about why I admire Bob the Builder. Until recently, I never thought much about Bob the Builder. But over the holidays, I spent some time watching different shows with my 3 year old son. He just loves the Wizard of Oz... and seeing Dorothy, the BAD witch, the good witch, the tin man, the scarecrow, the lion and the munchkins. It's an amazing film and I'll talk about the messages in it on another day.

  13. How to Persuade Without Really Trying
    Recently, the owner of a consulting practice contacted me. In the email, she said that she needed an easier, more predictable way to find ideal prospects. She had already tried a lot of different things but nothing worked. So we set up a meeting so I could learn more about her situation and whether I could help. As we spoke during the meeting, it became clear to me that, yes, I could help this business owner. I felt quite certain of this.

  14. Lessons I Learned From Paris Hilton
    Today I'm going to chat about shameless self-promotion. That's right, I said it! Shameless! After all, we are learning from Paris Hilton here. It's all about self-promotion! Self-promotion comes in many forms and you can use different tactics to get your name out there. Look at politicians! Talk about self-promotion and in some not so discreet ways, at that. But, seriously, consider some of the major superstars we all know. Madonna, Donald Trump, Howard Stern and Bill Clinton, just to name a few.

  15. What’s Stopping You?
    You’ve been talking about pursuing your dream since high school. You’ve been stuffing a file with places you’d like to travel since you got your first job. You’ve envisioned what your boutique store would look like for years, even driving around searching for the perfect location, yet you’ve never taken that next step. So, what’s stopping you?

  16. Yes, There Is A Short-Cut To Success!
    "Desperate times require desperate measures" I overheard someone say the other day. I was standing in line to order my late afternoon Latte at a well-known coffee establishment and the buzz in the room wasn't from the caffeine, it was from the customer chat. They were expressing their feelings of being down and out; hopeless of ever getting back what they've lost or of ever achieving what they were hoping to achieve; waiting for times to change before they would dare to decide what they should do next and their belief that there were no opportunities in existence anymore.

  17. Celebrity Manifesting (Don't Ever Let Go)
    As we begin to understand and apply how we really 'get what we get', we can become an observer of life and use it to our benefit instead of life using us. One of the many ways I love to observe life is through the wonderful lens of entertainment and celebrity. Why do I use celebrity? Because we all love to read it and be entertained by it.

  18. How to Use Personal Branding for a Competitive Edge
    Before you can learn much about how to use personal branding for a competitive edge, it's important to have an understanding of what personal branding is. Fortunately, it's possible to take a look at the way many successful people have used personal branding to get a feel for what it is and how it can work for you.

  19. Subtracting Fear by Adding Gratitude
    In the most famous attic of all time, Anne Frank wrote, "We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same." In his very first speech as president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt assured a depression-crippled nation, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." Now, decades later, the study of positive psychology has shown us that these famous quotes are not only timeless - they are connected.

  20. Necessary Pain - How to Cope with Emotional Teething and Come Out Smiling
    "This too shall pass." For as long as I can remember my mother has used this phrase, attributed to King Solomon, to ease my pains.

And with good reason; the impermanence of painful times has been discussed in every religious text and most best-selling self-help books.

  22. Happiness, Hope, and Humor - Three Simple H's That Will Change Your Life
    "The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." -- Allan K Chalmers.

Intentionally or sub-consciously, we all sang along, played along, learned along. Sesame Street was a constantly changing show.
