Multiply Your Action
Have you noticed?   As soon as you initiate action toward a goal - a million other distractions arrive in your life? Etch this into your mind: Activity creates activity. No matter what you choose to take on, your energy will attract the attention.  You will discover everything you need to succeed.  It will also draw everything required to through you off track.  That’s okay.  You can harness this power to get what you want. Don’t get stuck.  Sharpen your focus, shift gears and accelerate yourself into massive imperfect action mode.  And remember this - Activity will always create more movement.  Knowing your goals and focus will allow you to choose the best opportunities that arrive.

Stairway To Success
I’m a fan of the television show, Shark Tank.  I love their realistic approach to success.  On a recent episode, Lori Greiner made a quick comment that caught my attention.  She said, “There are no express elevators to success.  Everybody has to take up the stairs.” That’s some old-school, been there done that advice.  Something you don’t hear too often these days - except folks who have already walked your path. If you want quick success, take the stairs.  You’ll arrive long before those who are still waiting for the elevator.

The Myth of Balance
The Myth of Balance I always hear, "My goal is to balance my life better." As if balancing is static and can be achieved and maintained once you have it. Balance is dynamic, fleeting, ever-changing, and always challenging. Sure, it feels good when you reach equilibrium, but what about all that fun you had on your way there? I learned about balance when I worked in radio. My job was to balance the new music everyone wanted to hear old music folks love to remember. We balanced male, female, bands, duo's, and anything else musicians would toss at us. That sure sounds like life.  Imagine a life of rotating the new and exciting with the mundane and routine. Time for yourself and time for your family. A bit for the boss, and time to play.  Never too much. Never too little. You are always changing. That's balance. Embrace the journey of the day.

Closing Doors to Open Others
Closing Doors to Open Others Are you the kind of person who requires that your ducks be in a row before you getting something new? The standard advice is never stopping one thing until you have another. Don't quit your job. Don't buy a new house. Don't change your school major. Don't, don't, don't. Is that making you happy? Are you unsatisfied with what you have?  Is your complaining speaking louder than your actions? Maybe it's time to dump what's not working and go for what you want? Life is much too short to wait.

Replace Yourself
Have you noticed that there is never enough time in the day to soak up everything that life has to offer? It's time to replace yourself.  No matter what you do in life, getting some help might be your best choice.  From the most mundane to the exciting, there are lots of people who would love to help you enjoy your life. Why?  Because doing so helps them enjoy their life. The rule is simple - Do what you love; do what you do well. Just because you have done something for your entire life does not mean that you must keep doing it. Delegate, automate, outsource, hire or manage.  There is always a way to free up more time.

Busy With The Buzz
Are you getting caught up in the buzz of life while running crazy toward your goals?  Friends, family, co-workers, society - all would make you believe that you need to run faster to get what you want. That's not true.  Moving at 1,000 miles per hour is fun - especially when it is fueled by your passion.  However, it's only okay when you focus on your dream life.   Take a moment and evaluate your progress today.  Are you buzzing for the sake of buzzing?  Or, are you busy creating your dream life?

Stop Learning. Start Doing.
Have you ever felt something was holding you back?  Maybe you're spending too much time learning. What is going on? Your mind can't tell the difference between perception and reality.  It's confusing learning and doing.  That's why it's so easy to get caught up stuffing your brain with new information - not working toward your goal. Keep this in mind: 1) Learning is fun and required to make a better life. 2) Learning alone will not create results. 3) At some point, you must apply what you learn. Don't get stuck in the learning trap.  Consistently apply what you know.  I promise, you will start moving FAST!

Are You Willing To Jump?
Are You Willing To Jump? Steve Harvey is a funny guy. He's also a wise man. Have you seen his teaching on the one thing you must do if you want to be successful? He says, "You must jump. If you want to be successful, you must jump into your dreams, take a leap of faith, and go for it." Many times we stand on the cliff of life and watch others enjoying the life you desire. They jumped, their parachute opened, and life is good. You must jump. When you finally decide to jump, your parachute will not open right away. You will get bumped and bruised, but, your parachute will open. You must jump. If you don't jump, your parachute will never open. Is today the day you jump?

Massive Imperfect Action
Massive Imperfect Action Do you love the feeling you get when an exiting idea pops into your head? The most appealing aspect of anything new in your life always happens at the beginning. When it’s still a dream inside your head. It’s only when it’s time to take actual action that folks slow down - fast! Here’s how to break free: 1) Dreams only come true when you take massive action and establish momentum. 2) Fear of the unknown will stop you. What do I do? Where do I start? Will it work? No worries. One word will change everything. 3) The next time you don’t know what to do, embrace your inner NON-perfectionist. Take “Massive Imperfect Action” until things start to move forward. Sometimes your feet must travel down the path of your dreams before see the entire picture. Stand up, take a step, and repeat. You’ll figure it out!

Reinventing Yourself Instantly
Why do folks get so stressed out about reinventing themselves? It's so simple when you understand - Getting something different in life always requires taking a different action.  Those actions are "change" that you are applying to your life.  All change happens in an instant.  A simple course correction alters your life journey. Yes, it's that easy. There's no need to sit around waiting for your future.  Take a different action and be on a new path.   Stand up.  Take a step.  REPEAT!   You know you want it!  Get it!

Reinventing Your Perfect Day
What if every day, for the rest of your life, was perfect?  You know what they say?  "If you build it, they will come." The sub-conscious mind is a beautiful thing.  You can engage its power to create your Average Perfect Day.  Here's how - 1) Write down an exact, event-by-event vision of what your perfect day would be.  Yes, it's a bit of a fantasy - for now. 2)  As you write, there are no rules.  No limitations.  No consequences.  Don't be shy.  Be honest about what you want. 3)  Believe it can be yours!  You deserve it - right?  But, you must believe it is possible. If you follow these steps, your sub-conscious mind seeks ways to make your dreams come true.  All it needs is a partner willing to take action.  Do that, and you'll create an amazing life.

Value Drive Life Reinvention
Values are a funny thing.  Values live inside you and guide you.  They are who you are as a person.  Whether you think about them or not, you express your Values every minute of your life. If you want to know the secret to using Values to create change in your life - it's your lucky day. The person you are on the inside is a direct result of the millions of life experiences you've had since you were born.  They form your Identity.  If you want to reinvent your life, choose different experiences while you go about your day.  Those experiences will change your view of the world.  It won't be long before you transform your entire life. It's so simple. If you want something different in your life, do something different in your life.

Reinventing Yourself
Is it possible to reinvent yourself?  Sure!  After all, you've been doing it your entire life.  Imagine what would happen if you did it on purpose? Here's something to think about during your personal Operation Reinvention: 1) If things are not satisfying, accept it and move toward something new and exciting. 2) Focus your energy on the future.  Pushing harder to make what you don't like better will only give you more of what you already have. 3) Concentrate on long-term goals.  If you don't, you will find yourself busy with small tasks that will keep you where you are. You're already an expert at reinventing yourself.  You understand yourself better than anybody else.  It's time to listen to yourself instead of others.  They mean well, but only YOU know what YOU want.

Focusing On Yourself First
Not a day goes by that I don't have conversations with people who want to make the world a better place. I smile and ask, “What kind of work are you doing on yourself to make that happen?" There is usually silence - then. “Work on me? Why? I want to help others, not myself?” Socrates said, ”Let him that who would move the world first move himself." Smart guy. Focus on taking care of yourself first. Your positive energy will radiate into the word. We all need that.

Are Your Friends Holding You Back?
The success and happiness that you in your life is a direct result of something your Mom was always asking - Who are your friends? If they are positive, you will be positive.  Are they negative?  You will be negative.  If they have money, you will have money.  Are they broke?  You get my point. Your life will become exactly like the people that are closest to you.  Choose wisely.

Better Relationships. Better Life.
The quality of your life is a direct result of your relationships.  Tony Robbins said that.  Whether it's a personal, professional, or business relationship.  There are three ways to play the relationship game.  There is only one way to win. 1)  All relationships begin with two independent individuals.  If you remain independent, you will never connect. 2) Some relationships become co-dependent.  Developing this kind of relationship means losing individuality.  Isn't that what attracted you in the first place? 3) The correct way is to merge your skills, passions, and individuality.  That creates an interdependent relationship.  The strength of an individual.  The power of a team.  It doesn't get any better than that.

Essential Life Goals
Over the years most folks have concluded that setting goals are the beginning of all success.  However, too many goals can also stop you in your tracks. Huh? The experience of working toward essential life goals will always make you happier.  Too many goals will distract you from your real purpose.  Most successful folks I know have three to five "important" goals at any time.  Keeping it simple allows you to focus on what's important with little to no effort.  Anything more is nothing more than a someday/maybe list. Decide what's important, set the goal, and commit to working toward achieving them on a daily basis. You can always set more goals later.

Give Up What You Are NOT
Are you striving for something different and confused about where to begin? I have a client who, after years of poor eating habits, had become over 100 pounds overweight.  She decided to get healthy.  She also had no idea how. My advice was simple. If your mind is telling you something you are doing is NOT who you are - just give up what you are NOT. In her case, she knew lousy food because she had been eating it for years.  She gave it up.  She didn't have time to go to the gym.  She gave up what was stopping her. Too many activities were stealing the time she needed to heal herself.  She gave them up. If your mind is telling you something you are doing is NOT who you are - just give up what you are NOT.

Building Your Bridge to Change
Not a day goes by that I don't hear about one of my clients building a bridge to a new life. They are following a simple truth. If you want to change your life; you must accept that there is a gap between where you are, and where you want to go. Before you can have new, you must build a solid foundation to support your current life.  There's no running from reality.  No quitting your job.  No ditching your lease. You also must build a solid foundation for your future.  Learning, saving, planning, acting. As you establish foundations, you will build confidence, skill, and resources.  Keep what you have until your new life begins to appear.  You'll know when it's time to leap.

Productivity of Simplicity
I flew to Amarillo, Texas for a client visit a few years ago.  He picked me up at the airport and said, "I hope you don't mind riding along - I have three things to do today." Three things?  That's it? The first was a bank deposit.  The second was my payment.  I was waiting for the third when he said, "That's it, my friend.  The rest of my day is all about you. Yes, our project for the day included a thousand tasks.  It didn't matter.  In our minds, we only had one thing left on our list. Since then I've never scheduled more than three projects per day.  Twenty-one per week.  Ninety per month.  Over one thousand per year. So simple.  So productive.   Want to get more done?  Focus on three main projects a day.  Stress will disappear.  Productivity will skyrocket.  You'll be happier.

Journey. Destination. Repeat.
Life is a long and winding road.  It has many ups and downs, and a few surprises along the way. Here's what you can expect: 1)  Follow your passion and the money will arrive.  It may take longer than you think.  It may be less than you think.  It doesn't matter.  You'll be happy. 2) Nothing will happen until you move from daydreaming to daily action. 3)  The road will be rough.  Then it will smooth out.  Then it will be rough again. 4) Whatever path you thought you would travel will change. 5)  You will find speed limits.  Sometimes you will move slow.  Sometimes fast.  Pay attention to the signs that arrive in your life. 6) Frustration will be a constant companion.  So will excitement. 7) You will need to be strong to stay focused on the big picture. 8) When you arrive you will find yourself seeking another adventure.  Success is a journey that brings out the best in you.  Arriving at your destination will make you desire another journey.  Stay busy, my friend.

No Monkey On Your Back
Sometime today, a well-meaning person is going to detour you from your dreams.  They are going to solve a problem for them.  Sure, you want to help.  But, what about your problems? You have enough monkey's on your back already without taking on those of others.  Right? Before you say, "Yes," consider how much it may take you off track.  It's okay to say, "No thanks." The only person protecting your goals, dreams, and daily action is YOU.  Stay focused on YOUR plan.

Goal Setting Refresher Course
In 1979 interviewers asked potential Harvard MBA candidates - "Have you set clear, written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?" 3% answered yes. 10 years later that 3% was earning, on average, ten times as much as the other 97 percent combined. Goal setting is simple: 1) State exactly WHAT you want. 2) State WHY you want it. 3) Imagine how you are going to feel when you reach your goal. 4) Plan the steps you will take. 5) Take continuous action. 6) Measure your progress. 7) Be flexible in your approach.  8) Celebrate and repeat. There's no need for 97% of dreamers to set goals.  If you want to be in the top 3% - set goals.

Separating Un-important From Important
Have you noticed that life can be busy?  It seems that you never have time for what is important. I'm sure you find time to eat, sleep, pay bills, feed the dog, take care of your family - among dozens of "important" tasks.  Here's the truth - No matter how much you accomplish today - there will be more stuff to do tomorrow.   That will never end. Since the Universe gives you 24-hours a day to do as you please - why not spend some time working on your dreams? That other stuff can wait while you play.

Traits of Greatness
Are you having a difficult time being YOU? Keep these greatness traits in mind: 1) Use your imagination to form images, ideas, and sensations in your mind.  Do it without the help of others.  Trust yourself. 2) Be enthusiastic and live with excitement and passion.  Only do things that feel right for you. 3) Practice persistence.  Life is long.  Learn to love being persistent.  It will serve you well. 4) Have faith.  Live your life in complete trust and confidence.  Have faith in yourself.  A life well lived is full of Imagination, Enthusiasm, Persistence, and Faith.  Start today.  Continue tomorrow.  Never stop.

Formula For Getting What You Want
Are you living intentionally? You are one-third of the way to getting what you want.  Would you like it all? Everything begins with intention.  However, even though you can win a trophy for having good intentions, you will rarely win the game of life.  That takes a formula: Intention + Decision + Action = Happy life. When an exciting thought pops into your head, decide to get into action mode and make it happen.  That's a happy life.

Living a Life of Goal Setting
Are you excited to be alive today?  If not, it might be time to become an intentional goal setter. Goals are the heartbeat of your life.  They are tangible expressions of the values you hold and how you act out what you feel inside.  Goals create the experiences of your life. Goals are also automatic.  If you don't set them for yourself, the Universe and every person you meet will set them for you. You get to decide what you want.  You get to set your goals.  You get to create your life experience.  Always remember that.

Don't Be a Negotiating Underdog
Life is series of negotiations. The progress you make.  The success you enjoy.  The happiness you experience.  Everything is a direct result of your negotiation skill. Since you negotiate for everything, why is it that you sometimes feel like you won't succeed? Here's a little secret. Whenever two or more folks negotiate, everybody is hoping to find common ground.  Everyone knows they can only get what they want if others do too.  Everybody feels like the other person has an advantage. Now you know that everyone feels the same.  There is nothing to fear.  Negotiate with confidence.  It's how you get what you want.

Get More done With Less Stress
It's a new week.  I'm sure you have a lot to do.  If you use a To-Do list, I'd like to pass on some advice that will make your days much more fun. LOSE your "To-Do List."  Replace it with a "Did I Do It List." To-Do Lists make you a slave to the checkmark.  They cause more stress the longer they get. A "Did I Do It List" assumes you know what must be done.  Instead of chasing, you are checking to make sure you did it. An un-focused path produces additional task to fill your day.  Using a "Did I Do It List" will focus you on your goals and create quick results.

Quantum Decision Making
Do you ever have difficulty making decisions? In the next 60 seconds, you can harness the most potent and easy to use decision-making tool I have ever found. Forget the old "Pro and Con" list your Mom and Dad taught you. It’s time for a new approach. The next time you find yourself challenged use Quantum Linguistics. Ask yourself these 4 simple questions to solve your problem: What would happen if I DID? What would happen if I DIDN'T? What wouldn't happen if I DID? What wouldn't happen if I DIDN'T? Unusual clarity is around the corner.

Amending Your Constitution
I was on the phone with a client when she mentioned that she uses a personal constitution to guide her life.  She wrote the document 25 years ago.  It has never seen an amendment.  She's is not very happy either. By definition, a constitution never changes.  Your most important beliefs and core values should change easily.  Yet, you grow wiser, you should be willing to consider amending and updating how you feel about the world. Your core values alter with your daily life experiences like it or not.  Taking control of the process will lead to a more harmonious life experience. The next time you feel like an old dog reluctant to learn a new trick, consider what thoughts are guiding you. Are they still useful in your life?

Golden Circle of Influence
Are you going to influence the world today? Getting what you want in life usually begins by knowing what you want and believing you can get it.  That influences others to help you. Simon Sinek calls it, "The Golden Circle." If you're like most folks, you spend a good amount of your time focusing on "What" you want and "How" you're going to get it. Your "Why" tends to arrive last. That might be why you find yourself wandering in the direction of what you think you want. And, nobody can help you get there because there is no belief to follow. When you begin with "Why" the "How" becomes automatic, and the "What" tends to define itself. When you know your "Why" and have belief in yourself, others will follow you anywhere.

Power of Pain and Pleasure
They are two forces that rule everything you do.  Pain and Pleasure. Included in Stoic Philosophy in 300 BC, it's three rules are easy to understand and apply: 1)  Most decisions you make and actions you take have the goal of attracting pleasure into your life. 2)  When things get challenging, decision and actions become focused on avoiding pain.  Your mission is to get back to pleasure. 3)  Avoiding pain will always overrule seeking pleasure. Before you take action, acknowledge what is driving your behavior.  It won't be long before you find yourself living in the pleasure zone.

Stand Up. Take a Step. Repeat.
It's the world's simplest recipe for success; Stand up, take a step, REPEAT!  A member wrote asking the best use of such simple advice.  Here's how to get started in 5 minutes or less: 1)  Stop whatever you are doing.  Block out everything. Focus on YOU. 2)  Find a place where nobody will interrupt you for at least 5 minutes. 3) Ask yourself, "How is my life going?"  Open your mind and let your thoughts flow into the different areas and roles of your life.  Bring them into focus. 4)  For things going well, continue your momentum.  For areas of concern ask, "What CAN I do to make it better?" 5)  Immediately take action based on your answers.  Never stop. 5 minutes a day is all it takes to keep yourself on track.  Check in with yourself and the progress you are making.  Adjust and keep moving.

Daily Rules of Happiness
Did you know that happy people see the world differently? No, they don't wear rose-colored glasses.  They have a better way: 1)  Happy people realize that being alive includes challenges.    2) Happy people accept that challenges are a privilege that come with being alive. 3) Happy people get frustrated but don't give up.  Challenges mean everything is normal. 4) Happy people accept responsibility for solving challenges. 5)  Happy people deal with everything life can throw at them, get a great night’s sleep, and do it all over again. Finally, when you think like a happy person, most challenges never show up in the first place.

Get Clear on Your Choices
The most common question that crosses my desktop is, "How do I decide what to do?"  Common sense would say, "you can't move forward when you don't have clarity in your direction."  Are your choices are getting in the way? Are you focusing on your options or are you paying more attention the consequences?  That can be dark and scary. The secret is to realize that you are out of your comfort and feeling naked. The consequences of your choices are not always evil.  The grass is usually greener on the other side. When you on the "green" side.  Achieving clarity gets much easier.

Take Command of Your Life
I like flying little airplanes. Over the years I've learned a lesson; I don't have to ask permission to go where I want to go.  It's always up to me to choose my destination. I'm what the FAA refers to as the Pilot in Command - the Boss of the airplane.   I have total control to decide on my goal and plan my journey.  I'm also required to tell Air Traffic Control where I'm traveling.  Their job is to make sure I arrive safely. There is no requesting permission and no negotiating.  I call ATC on the radio, tell them where I would like to travel, and I'm on my way. Yes, sometimes ATC will recommend an alternate route, but I always get to my destination. Is today the day that you take command of your journey?

Problem Solving The Natural Way
Problem Solving The Natural Way Have you ever noticed how many tips, tricks, and strategies you keep using to get what you want? Are you running faster and faster, getting less done, with more frustration? You are living in "Tactic Mode." Everybody tackles everyday tasks using tactics. They are perfect for getting things done, but not ideal for living your purpose. For that, you need to spend more time living and acting according to Values. Tactics are short-term, always changing, and never-ending. Values are guiding and live inside of you. Meet today's challenges in alignment with what you believe on the inside. Stick to your Values. Your life will be much more satisfying.

Choosing Good People in Your Life
Choosing Good People in Your Life With 7.4 million people on the planet, how many will you need to meet to get the success you desire? Yes, that’s a trick question. You should be asking - How few people can you meet to get what you want as fast as possible? It's less than you think. You can speed your progress by refining your target. Seek to attract people and opportunities that you believe would be a good match. Then, sift and sort until only those relationships that are a perfect match remain. Let all others go on the merry way. Do it! You'll quickly remove noise and frustration from your life. Your day-to-day journey will become so much more enjoyable.

Master Your Motivation. Master Your Life.
No matter how long-term your goals, mastering your daily motivation skill set is a must. That's how you create momentum and success. Your first goal is simple. Accept that you are responsible for the daily discipline of moving yourself forward. Big goals get completed with continuous and focused daily actions. 1) Having the motivation to progress every day is a foundational skill. Do whatever it takes to "stay in the game." 2) Daily Motivation Mastery is easier when you define your big picture. What are your goals and why do you want them? 3) Every day should be series of ritualistic behaviors. Each building and maintaining your momentum. Never lose sight of your progress. Not for a single day. Always defend what you have accomplished. Never give up your gains.

Today Not Possible. Tomorrow Possible.
Today Not Possible.  Tomorrow Possible. American Taekwondo Grand Master, H.U. Lee gave volumes of advice during his life of service.  In my view, his best was also his shortest: "Today Not Possible.  Tomorrow Possible." Today is a new day.  Yesterday prepared you for today.  If today doesn't go as planned - you always have tomorrow.

Cycle of Productivity
A few years ago Steven Covey wrote of the power of taking a break.  He said, "It's important to sharpen your saw.  No matter how hard you work, you will always cut more wood with a sharp saw." My formula for more productivity is this: 1) Live your life with RITUALS.  No winging it.  Figure out your sacred activities and perform them consistently. 2) Take a break.  Give your body and mind the opportunity to REST.  While you gather your energy, you will be to REJUVENATE.  3)  As your mojo returns, REACTIVATE and get moving again on the task in front of you. 4)  Finally, REPEAT your cycle of productivity as long as needed.  Rituals. Rest. Rejuvenate. Reactivate. Repeat. Let others churn away with marginal results while you set your mind on changing the world.  You'll get there - as long as you get a little rest along the way.

What's Your Life Purpose
Seeking purpose is an interesting thing. For some, it is natural and effortless. Others find it aspirational and their mission. The first tends to live on purpose with no thought. The actions they take in day-to-day activities are what they do. Purpose a reason something gets done, created, or exists. They live in the moment. Most consider the second more awake and mindful. Determined to discover their elusive purpose before times runs out. Their life is about intention and objective. They live in the future. Whichever camp you fall into, both fit the dictionary definition of "Purpose." If you're fortunate, you are doing both at the same time.
