Overcoming Inertia

How do you get out of a rut? Natural laws like inertia apply everywhere in the physical world. But the laws of inertia apply to our emotional and intellectual life as well. The trick is to exert enough consistent emotional effort to be able to overcome inertia and create lasting change.

Footsteps on the Path to Success

You can learn a lot about life by hiking in the mountains and I am struck with the many similarities between a mountain hike and our journey to success. Here are a few simple lessons we can learn: plan ahead, pay attention, adjust for obstacles, don’t compare yourself to others, and keep going. Cultivate mental toughness to create your ideal future tomorrow.

Use Goals to Reach Your Dreams

Do you ever feel like Alice, in Lewis Carroll’s classic story, Alice in Wonderland? Do you feel like you are trying to get somewhere, but just don’t know exactly how to get there? Perhaps you have never actually harnessed the full power of goals. True goals, the ones that change your life, have six essential components. Leave one out, and the framework falls apart with it. Follow through on all six, and you can’t fail. Here they are…

A Strong Foundation

A Strong Foundation

When I was a teenager, I visited the Sears Tower (now known as the Willis tower) in Chicago, Illinois. At that time, it was the tallest building in the world. In some ways, we are like a skyscraper. We work every day to achieve higher and higher levels of achievement. At the same time, we are susceptible to conditions that surround us. The foundation for the Sears tower is a massive cement structure that is 100 feet deep. If we are to stand strong, we too must have a solid foundation.

Get Crystal Clear

Get Crystal Clear

Before you can reach your goals, they have to become crystal clear in your mind. Ask yourself: What, How, Who, Where, When, and Why. The more clearly you define your objectives and the more frequently and intensely you review them, the faster they will be yours.

Jump In!

Jump In! - Success Comes When You Overcome Your Fear

I’ll never forget the day our swim instructor said it was time to do the high dive. I immediately got at the back of the line, where I watched all of my class mates climb the stairs and jump off the high dive. Fear is a thief that robs us of enjoyable experiences and future success. Take a lesson from my swimming instructor and “Just jump in!” Do the thing you fear.

Take a Personal Inventory

Take a Personal Inventory

Regularly schedule quiet time for a personal inventory where you can reflect on the highest priorities in your life and evaluate how well you are allocating your time and energy toward accomplishing them. Worthwhile goals will naturally flow from this type of introspection.

Controlling Interruptions

Controlling Interruptions

A short interruption actually costs in lost productivity as much as 10 times the amount of time it takes. Value your time enough to eliminate as many interruptions as you can by scheduling blocks of time to work without interruption and other blocks of time to handle those items that would have interrupted your work.

Disadvantaged Childhood? Succeed Anyway!

If you think that you had a disadvantaged childhood, listen to the story of Mario Andretti. Mario was born in Northern Italy the same year that World War II broke out.  When the war finally ended, borders had shifted and his family found themselves in communist-controlled Yugoslavia.  They decided to leave their homeland as refugees […]

The Middle Class Myth

The Middle Class Myth

The middle class concept is failing millions of people because it is based on myths and formulas that worked for our parents but will no longer prove successful today. President Obama suggested, “the middle class is at a make or break point.” What he should be telling you is: the middle class has been failing its members for decades and this is not a new thing.

Keep on Learning

Keep on Learning

Visualize Your Plan

Visualize Your Plan

If you will take the next step and visualize exactly how it will look, and feel, when you reach your goals–if you will describe in detail, in writing, how it will look, perhaps even make a detailed drawing or find a picture that reminds you of your goal–you will have taken a major step toward achieving your goals.

Take Charge of Your Life

Today, millions of people walk around incarcerated in their own personal jails called addictions. These people are addicted to substances (such as alcohol, tobacco, prescription drugs, or even caffeine) or to behaviors (such as gambling, porn, overeating, or too much TV) which rob them of time, money, and control.

As we age, our eyes tend to lose their flexibility, making it more difficult to see up close. This presents an interesting challenge for those of us who already have trouble seeing far away objects.

Pay Attention to the Small Things

Pay Attention to the Small Things

All of us focus on the bigger things — and well we should. But oftentimes, the small details do not get the attention they deserve. After all, bit things are nothing more than the accumulation of small things. It stands to reason, therefore, that small details make big things happen.

Slow and Steady Wins

Slow and Steady Wins

Remember the old story of the tortoise and the hare? The hare had more speed and ability than the tortoise could ever hope to have. His body was built for swiftness. Many of us find ourselves in a similar situation as the tortoise. Competitors, customers, or co-workers might be smarter, faster, or endowed with natural talents that you don’t possess. You may have personal burdens that you have to carry. Yet, you can still come out on top with consistent, steady effort.

Your Quest for Success

No one can give you success. No one can force you to achieve. No one can do the preparation, planning, and the work for you. If we are to achieve true excellence, we must take responsibility for our own success and do the work to make it happen. Here are four steps to help each of us in our quest for success: Plan, Prepare, Perform, Persist.

Retirement Will Kill You!!!!

I was on a plane with Academy award winning actor Ernest Borgnine, 93 years old, (202 movies to his credit) as he was on his way to Toronto to shoot a movie with Bruce Willis. We got into a conversation about work and retirement and he said, “retirement will kill you, work gives you purpose.”

You Decide

You Decide

William Ernest Henley wrote the poem “Invictus” which means unconquered. The essence of the message is that no matter what happens to you, you get to decide how you will respond and react. You get to decide what you will do tomorrow and the next day. You get to choose your attitude; you decide what your goals will be and whether you will continue to strive or give up. You are the master of your own fate.
