The Success Destroyer

Complaints are a funny thing – they can feel really great in the moment and yet can actually derail your best efforts to achieve your goals and dreams.

Here’s how it usually goes. You start with a complaint – even a minor one. It things aren’t resolved, the complaint can grow and become a bit of resentment. If the resentment isn’t resolved, it can morph into a full-fledged grudge.

Grudges (even the ones you feel totally justified having) are like roadblocks. They stop you in your tracks and prevent you from becoming successful and happy.

Have a great day,

How to Be Victorious

I am often asked the question about how to be successful. Most of the time, the question they really want to know is how to be victorious when facing a challenge.

While it’s common sense, individuals find the following helpful (and I hope you do as well): NEVER allow you to defeat yourself. Victory and defeat start in your heart – and if you need support remembering your value, ask. There are people around – count me in.

Have a great day,

Is Your Purpose Too Puny?

I was chatting with a friend who has been struggling with a specific challenge for a long time and he was more than a bit frustrated that he hadn’t yet resolved it. I asked him why coming up with a solution was important to him. He gave me one of those “isn’t it obvious” looks and yet he didn’t really have an answer.

As we continued to talk, he realized that he didn’t have a strong enough purpose around the challenge to bring his best self, power through, and bounce back when things didn’t go his way.

Puny purposes are often at the root of something not being achieved. So what is your goal / challenge and what makes it super important to you?


The “Danger” of Dropping the Ball

I was meeting with someone recently who had missed a really important event that was pivotal to his career. It’s not that forgetting to do one thing is the end of the world, but in this case led to a whole series of missteps and missed opportunities.

Just like we can train ourselves to develop good habits that help us achieve our goals and aspirations, we can also train ourselves to fail – and I don’t want this to happen to you.

While we each will drop the ball at points along the way, don’t ignore it. Pick the ball back up, apologize (if needed), and keep moving ahead, By admitting you slipped up, you could actually increase your credibility and be given a second chance.

Enjoy your day,
