Are you the kind of person who is searching high and low for anything that will make you happy, get you married, bring in more money, or allow you to ignore the crazy world we live in today?
If I may, it’s time that stop searching and do this -
Accept that ONE good idea, ONE good realization, or ONE good action can and will change your life instantly.
Before I continue, I'm not saying to focus on ONE thing as you'll find in Gary Keller's book. Nope. The ONE thing I'm talking about comes...
Are you standing on the edge of your dreams that haven’t become reality?
Steve Harvey is a funny man. He is also a wise man.
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 success you deserve.
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, and...

Change Your Stories, Change Your Life
Today we begin with a truth that on the surface may not seem very motivational. However, accepting this truth will be the singularly most freeing and motivating thing you can do for yourself.
We live in a world dominated by agendas. These 'plans of others' are broadcast to propagandize your mind into believing in a way that will pull you off your path and...

Responding To Your Inner-Voice
Inside all of you right now are dreams, desires, and visions of your future. If you pay attention, you can hear your inner voice nudging you in that direction. Something it’s been doing for years.
Whether your inner voice is whispering for you to begin moving toward your dreams or stop a behavior that’s holding you back, it will never stop...

Over the year’s the most popular question I get from the MOVERS around here is -
“How do I find my purpose and face my passion?”
If I were to expand on that question, it would be -
“What can I do today to find my purpose and overcome the fear of living my passion?”
In other words, it’s one thing to find it; it’s another thing to get yourself to do it.
Today we’ll focus on finding it.
In my quest to always be passionately...

Are You Self-Sabotaging Your Success
When I started my first real business 20 years ago, I found myself stressed, working long hours, missing workouts, sleep, and family. I was determined to be a success - even if it killed me.
I'm not sure it would have done that, but I was a least on my way to wearing myself out since I was in my office at 2 AM on a Saturday, with a big bottle of wine.
Frankly, I was mad that day and was...

From time to time, almost everybody will feel as if they can't do IT anymore - whatever IT is. Something has to change, and they have no idea how. It's called burnout.
The good news is that you don't ever have to get burned out. The better news is that it's easy to keep yourself motivated, energized, and looking forward to every new day.
But what happens if you feel burned out today?
Let's start with...

If you're spending any time trying to create a more fulfilling life, have you ever found yourself unable to work on meaningful projects?
Of course, we all have. Here's what usually happens:
1) We make a decision, conscious or unconscious, to spend an entire day or week charging through your project.
2) We "chunk" our project into 15-30 segments that we work on throughout the day.
The challenge happens when we never seem to be...

As a child, I wondered why I couldn't always have my way. Mom and Dad were so mean! I couldn't wait to grow up, move out, and experience being an adult. Everything would be different - or so I thought.
After stepping into the adult world, it didn't take long to realize that not much had changed. It turns out it wasn't my parents. It was life turning down my requests. Life was getting in the way. What was even worse was...

You’ve likely heard that “Changes happens in an instant” - which is entirely accurate. But…
Is there one ‘instant’, and when will it happen?
Are there more than one ‘instants” required to get what you want? If so, when will they happen?
If you’ve ever worked toward a goal, you’ll find there are usually a series of small changes that happen in sequence. Whether they are slight shifts in...

Last week in Daytona Beach, I noticed the seasons were changing. It may be too early for the leaves to change colors, but the license plates of our winter residents are beginning to take over the roads - and they sure are busy.
I like to keep life simple, so I notice when, even while beginning an exciting adventure, people seem to lose all common sense, embrace complexity, and lose track of how simple life can...
How are you going to influence the world today?
What do you think about starting with yourself?
Getting what you want in life begins when you know what you want and believe that you can accomplish your goal.
Does that sound like you?
Simon Sinek calls it "The Golden Circle."
If you're like most folks, you spend a reasonable amount of time focusing on "What" you want and "How" you're going to get it.
Your "Why" tends to arrive last.
When you think that way, you'll find yourself...

Have you noticed how few things in life require absolute attention?
Sure, occasionally, you will be served a little more than you think you can handle, but you always manage it.
Sometimes you will worry a little more about things than you should. No matter how detailed you cook up and plan your worry in your mind, you always get through it.
Does somebody looks at you the wrong way or, worse, say something that hurts your...

For most of the last two decades, I've made my living my passion - a dream most people have. That doesn't mean it's been easy, but it does mean that I've learned a few things about how to create what you want.
Let me begin by saying that most folks have difficulty breaking free from past limiting beliefs and creativity, creating a compelling future. I believe that happens because all of us are thrust into...
I'm a big fan of setting big-ass goals. Dreaming BIG is my natural state - which is why S.M.A.R.T. goals are not all that smart.
S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound.
While it may seem like a good plan, I can't wrap my head around NOT setting goals because they don't seem achievable or realistic.
Since when did big-ass goals seem achievable and realistic? If that were true, you would already be doing them. Anytime you're moving...

You might not be surprised to hear me say that everybody I know has moments when they ponder their purpose in life and wonder if they are on the right track.
You might also agree with me that everybody wants more happiness in their life.
There’s no doubt, the twin pursuits of searching for purpose and happiness are baked into our DNA, but there is a better way to think about it. A...

If you've ever found yourself struggling to stay on track every day, your personal power is out of balance.
Before I go on, let me say that personal power is more than a slogan and, it is not automatically activated upon birth.
Rising into your personal power is a personal choice. It is a decision followed by discipline to become a complete person instead of a narrowly focused human stumbling through life.
It is a power that...

If you talk to any successful person and ask how they got that way, it boils down to three things:
1) They decided what they wanted life and success to be.
2) They decided to say “No” to everything else and “Yes” to themselves.
3) They decided to embrace and practice maximum productivity toward their goal.
I suppose that if I said it another way, it would be that life always...

Returning To Your Dreams
Can you remember a time when you filled your thoughts with dreams and ambitions?
That’s how most of us live our early lives - until the real world splits into two distinct periods:
1) BEFORE life gets in the way. Anything IS possible. It’s a beautiful time when you run as fast as you can toward your goals. Even if your parents disagree.
2) AFTER life gets in the way. Anything WAS possible. Life is...
How many times have you heard it takes 21 days to create or break a habit? Probably as many times as you've tried to make a change to your life.
Creating a new lifestyle is nothing more than applying a different set of actions day-to-day. In doing so, you are forming a mental link that strengthens each time you repeat the action.
The guys in the white coats call this "context-dependent repetition." It's a dynamic automatic behavior that saves your brainpower in a busy world. Research has...
I often run across a lesson that makes a difference in my life. This one came from the time I spent with Tony Robbins in 2006. When it comes to building Momentum, it's still relevant today:
1) Get Clear. Confusion creates paralysis.
2) Get Certain. You must believe it is possible.
3) Get Excited. Light your hair on fire, kick yourself in the butt and take on your life.
4) Get Focused. Distraction is the result of a lack of focus. Avoid it at all cost.
5) Get Committed. You are going to...
Is your hair on fire for success?
There's a phrase that sums up what it takes to find whatever you're looking for. The faster the speed of the leader, the faster the speed of the pack.
It's a simple truth; success likes speed. It's very sexy and especially attractive to others.
Knowing your goals and taking massive imperfect action always speed up success. Why?
People get caught up in the belief their leaders cast. When you crank up your energy and urgency, others will follow and support...
With over 7 billion people on the planet, how many will you need to meet to get the success you desire?
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 their...
Let's continue with a few more mindsets for success:
1) Start using a "Good Enough" approach. Perfectionism is doing nothing to move you forward.
2) Use your ONE mind to do ONE thing. Multitasking is splitting your focus and energy. It's also delaying your success.
3) Let go of control. Some things are not up to you. Figure out what they are and move on.
4) Say NO to anything that does not directly support your goals. Don't do something in hopes of getting what you want. Do what you KNOW...
