The Ladder to Success

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

No ContactIf you climb the ladder to success climbing means exposing yourself to rusty nails and faulty rungs that are crooked and need of repair.

It means sitting down at times when you procrastinate taking one more step.

It may take more than a few attempts to make it to the top.

Is it worth it?

Only you can be the judge of that but this I can say:

Life without a hard fought climb will not be as invigorating, stimulating, or inspirational.

The climb will get you up each morning with more zest and put zip in your life.

Whether your goal is relational, spiritual, or in the business realm you will feel growth that leads you to new endeavors you might not have thought possible.

Failure is Stepping Stone to Success

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Failure is not our enemy, it is the stepping stone we must take to find success.

If you fall in the water after landing on failure get back up dripping wet and keep going.

Failure helps us find the next landing spot which might be more failure but it is likely that success is hidden just beneath the surface inside that failure.

How will you ever find that precious gem called success if you don’t look inside?

Don’t run away from failure.

Sit with it for awhile.

Face it.

Look it straight in the eye.

Success is in there right beneath the surface you’ve just got to stick around long enough to see it.

Do We Excuse Successful Jerks?

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Do we excuse successful jerks? There are those who have achieved high levels of success artistically financially and in other ways and…

not all of these people are nice.

Some people who have achieved enormous success are gigantic jerks.

Do we tend to excuse abusive narcissistic individuals because of who they are and what they have achieved?

A Quick Take on Self Improvement

Friday, August 1st, 2014

I recently received a comment from a reader who was looking for information about how to improve her self–quickly.

I don’t know if it’s truly possible to quickly improve how you view yourself but I do believe it’s possible to begin the improvement immediately.

The way we view who we are largely depends on the way we think about ourselves. For example, if I want to be a great cook I can begin right away to affirm to myself and to the world that I’m a great cook. I can think it, I can write it down, and I can post little notes all over my house telling me what a great cook I am. I can also tell whoever will listen just how great I am in the kitchen and if I set my mind to it, I might start to believe it.

But most likely, the positive regards I have for my cooking won’t last if deep down, I don’t believe–truly believe I’m a great cook. I can say the words and write them down but my self- doubt will eventually override all my verbal and written messages if I don’t believe it.

So then what do I do if I want to be a great cook quickly? There’s really only one way. I’ve got to take action and lots of it. I need to study recipes and make dishes that look and taste delicious. I’ve also got to share the food I prepare with friends and family so that other people can judge for themselves how well I’m doing.

And little by little with each success and failure I get better and gain confidence in my ability to cook.

I won’t become great overnight but I will begin to believe in my ability to become great and when I combine that with action I’ve got an excellent chance of achieving my goal.

I believe it works the same with the way we view ourselves as people. If you want to feel better about yourself–treat yourself better.

Respect your mind, body, and spirit by taking more time to listen to your inner thinking. Don’t discount what you think just because it’s different than what someone else thinks.

If you have a goal, believe in your ability to achieve that goal not just in the beginning when you first make up your mind but also down the road when things get much harder. Get information, ask questions, step outside your comfort zone because when you do this you are taking action and moving toward your goal. And above everything else, make sure you have verbalized to yourself and written down exactly what your expectations are in terms of your change.

If you don’t know exactly what you want to change–you won’t.

So if you decide you want to be a better employee, a stronger parent, a more considerate spouse, a smarter decision maker–whatever the goal is own it by writing it down and verbalizing it.

And when you face obstacles don’t decide to throw in the towel because it becomes too hard. Face the obstacles because overcoming them puts you closer to reaching your goal.

So is it possible to improve yourself quickly?

Can you change yourself in seven days or less?

Not completely.

But you can absolutely decide to improve you right away.

And from the moment you decide to, you will change if you’re committed to making that change. Each day you will see yourself a little different and when you see yourself slip–you’ll catch yourself and remember your goal.

It won’t be painless but it will become more natural because each day you are making small adjustments that move you toward the person you want to be.

How You Perceive You

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

No ContactHow you perceive yourself

How you perceive your situation

How you measure your own success

How you view the world and people in it

Determines how your live your life on a daily basis.

Don’t worry about what you think others think about you .

Don’t worry about what you think others think about what you are doing.

If you catch yourself thinking about what you think others are saying about you change your thinking as fast as you can.

Many people refuse to aim high or make a change or back away from or refuse to select a new career because they fear criticism from others.

Others have their opinions and readily offer those opinions up. If you listen more to the opinions of others and less to yourself you are more likely to give up before you’ve given an idea a chance.

 

 

 

Safe Zone

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

There is no safe zone in life–no place we can go where we are guaranteed safety and success. This place doesn’t exist. The only safe zone is the one we create for ourselves. Anything else is just an illusion.

 

Assume Success!

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Do yourself a favor and assume that with hard work, drive, determination, and motivation you will be successful in any new endeavor you choose.

If you fail to plan for success you are certain to fail in whatever you choose.

There is just a tiny difference between success and failure and it all boils down to preparation.

If you are not prepared for success what will you do when the pieces start to fit into place and business, work, opportunity comes your way? I will tell you what will happen–an avalanche with you right at the bottom trying to dig your way out!

If instead, you prepare for a positive outcome you will have a much smoother ride without fear of getting buried due to lack of planning.

Sometimes it is hard to imagine that we will succeed so instead choose to believe we will fail so we won’t be disappointed.

Success

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.                       Conrad Hilton
