Successful people guard their time like it’s the gold in Fort Knox.
Write that down on a sheet of paper. It’s important to your success.
If you’re not guarding your time and you want to be more successful, then you have work to do.
Ask anyone if they are committed to their own success and most will tell you, “Absolutely!”
However, a closer look at their choices and actions says otherwise.
That’s because commitment to your own success is going to require “doing what it takes” and require “personal change”.
Yes, I said the “c” word…”Change.”
Everyone wants to change the outcome but how can you change the outcome unless you first change the viewpoints, thought processes and decisions you … Read the rest
This is one of the headlines I was looking at while writing this to you early yesterday morning:
“White House considers taking ownership stakes in private banks to deal with credit crisis”
They are seeking to “deal with a serious credit crisis that has caused the biggest upheavals on Wall Street in seven decades and continues to roil global markets.”
My question for you is this: how did this credit crisis “sneak up on us” like it did?
Or didn’t it?
Was the world turning a blind eye? Have we been looking the other way while the problems worsened?
And now world governments are looking to bail out and to some extent even “buy out” the institutions that are such … Read the rest
“He can’t make it Thursday to do a talk on ‘Think and Grow Rich’. We think it’s a good fit for you. Would you want to do it?”
Caught by surprise, I started to think it over while I gathered some info.
To give some perspective, Andrew Carnegie had offered Napoleon Hill the opportunity to interview America’s wealthiest people for the purpose of creating a success system, he secretly held a stopwatch in his pocket and gave young Napoleon no more than 60 seconds to decide.
Napoleon Hill came back with a resounding “yes” 32 seconds later and the rest is history.
Having had listened to Napoleon Hill’s recorded talks countless times, I knew the importance of being decisive.
I … Read the rest
Are you fed up yet with the results you’re getting (or NOT getting) this year?
I’m asking you because if you’re NOT fed up yet, then you can probably look forward to more of the same going into next year.
Scary thought – would you agree?
So the question really is this: when have you had enough of doing it ‘the backwards way’ and not making the money you want to be making?
Because until you can finally say with conviction, “I’ve had enough” and really mean it, I can’t help you.
I’d love to, but I just can’t. Not until you’re ready to commit to your own success.
On the other hand, when you sincerely start feeling fed up … Read the rest
“One of the best personal growth items I have purchased over the internet” – Dr. Mike in NY
The Secret Power of ‘Creating Your Life’
I drove into town this morning to get myself a sausage, egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. Waiting for the light, I noticed all these people in such a great hurry.
“What’s all the commotion about?” I thought to myself.
And then it suddenly hit me…
They were all rushing to catch the train to WORK!
If you race to catch the train or drive into work every morning, then you probably think I AM the strange one!!!
But you see, I left the crazy “grind-it-out” way of living several years ago … Read the rest
I’ve probably purchased bags of ice five times in the past 38 years.
The first four times were for other people (birthday parties, graduation parties, and maybe a neighbor’s barbecue.) Truth is, it’s happened so few times I can’t even recall when.
To me, paying for ice was stupid. I mean, it’s frozen water! I’m going to hand over my money for frozen water?
When was the fifth time? Actually, it was only a few weeks ago. I’d been playing basketball and I felt this sudden, sharp burning sensation go up the arch of my foot.
So on my way back home, I picked up a bag of ice to put under my foot and help it start … Read the rest
Remember the first time you opened your heart to that special someone?
How wonderful it felt to be loved and IN love?
‘They’ could do no wrong. To you, they were that PERFECT person you’d been looking for.
You beamed as you entered a room…and the world was your oyster.
Feels good, right? Sure it does.
Oh, and what about THIS…
Remember the day the honeymoon ended?
When you realized they were NOT so perfect? In fact they had a whole damn LOT of things wrong with them. How could you have been so blind? So naïve …so foolish?
You went your separate ways, though your mind and heart wished you could transport back to that blissful and orgasmic honeymoon.… Read the rest
My Success-minded Friend,
Have you lived long enough?
Have you worked hard enough?
Have you struggled, scratched and clawed?
The cumbersome climb up your mountain of success is purposefully a slow, particular one.
And for what purpose exactly?
Why, to PROVE that you can pass all the rigorous tests of course!
To prove that you are ‘worthy’ of entering that elite circle of the wealthy and successful.
No, wait. Let me correct myself here as you read this.
These s-l-o-w, arduous steps are designed to prove that you are ‘worthy’ of claiming the success they afford you. It’s not a blueprint for entering the elite circle of the wealthy and successful. No, no, no. The elite hold close to them … Read the rest
When I was 19, I had a spiritual experience that showed me I was not alone.
The illusory veil had been pierced and pulled back. Behind it…stood ME.
It was a ME I had known so very long ago.
It was thrilling to feel alive again.
But with the taste of greater freedom comes greater responsibility too.
You see, until age 19, I saw the world in color. Or so I thought. Then I woke up one day to a world of gray.
This was depressing…until I looked inside and again saw colors. Only now they were vibrant and pulsating and alive.
My challenge then was to see the world around me as enchanting – like the world inside. Sometimes … Read the rest
“There’s Nothing Stopping You.”
That’s what it says in the top left corner of “go” magazine which I have in front of me right now.
I’m speeding toward Atlanta, high above the clouds, to invest my time with Ed “the Closer” Zimbardi, fulfillment specialist Brenda Zimbardi (www.fulfillmentcentral.com) and internet marketing wizard Matt Bacak (www.powerfulpromoter.com ).
So how exactly did Ed Zimbardi end up inviting me to his home and Matt Bacak to his office?
Well, initially, they didn’t…I invited myself.
Sure, I’ve know these great people for years now. But I wouldn’t be landing in Atlanta 57 minutes from now if I didn’t wake up one July morning and say to myself, “I’m going to Atlanta to … Read the rest
