Exhilarating Delight

What would happen if you went through the next 24 hours celebrating your life (and everyone else’s) full out? Record what happens and share it with others to inspire greatness in each of them.

Have a great day,



Why do some people fail or reach their goal, while others continue despite disappointments and setbacks?

While there are many causes, one clearly stands out. That is determination. With strong inner resolve, you are well on your way to victory. Where is the focus of your determination – your underlying why? Take a small step to have your actions support this resolve.

Go out and do it,

Winning with a Two-Way Conversation

Getting what you want is a process – especially when you need help from another person. There will likely be more than one conversation. Be prepared to listen, make tradeoffs, and always focus on making things work for you and the other person – getting to a mutually satisfactory outcome.

Think of this process as a discussion where each side has the opportunity to talk about his/her wants and needs. Give the other person your full attention and let him/her feel heard and respected.

If you do, you increase the chances of getting what you want and need and even creating a deeper relationship – which is great!


Give or Not – Just Choose

We make a life by what we give.  Winston Churchill

What if this is actually true? How would you choose to live your life.

Here’s a thought: choose to give and then give fully or choose not to give. Just choose one way or the other – rather than saying “yes” and meaning  “no,” feeling resentful, and withholding part of yourself.

You will make things better for others and yourself!

Enjoy making choices today,

Success Connecting

At this time of year, I spend a lot of time with individuals planning and driving toward their next career and role. I believe they have a “secret” wish to be given the perfect contact who can give them the job of their dreams.

Yet the focus is backwards. Instead, think of who you need to become to be ready for someone else to put his or her reputation on the line for you. When you do, you increase the chances of having someone endorse you exponentially.

Who knows -you could land that dream job after all!

Happy connecting,

Bonus Break

What do you do when you need a breather?

When you feel overwhelmed, take a break from whatever is causing the pressure and do a task that will please you and bring instant gratification.

Have a cup of coffee. Organize a stack of papers. Practice deep breathing.

You can then return to the bigger tasks with renewed energy, confidence, and a sense of accomplishment. Use these feelings and attitude to succeed at whatever you do next.


Happiness Found

Look for ways to be happy, things to be happy about. If you don’t even notice the sources of happiness in your life, how can you enjoy them? Some people focus on their problems. It’s important to be aware of all the good things in your life. Take 5 minutes each day to count your blessings.


Self-Fulfilling Talk

You have to talk to yourself the right way.

So how do you talk to yourself?

Do you punish yourself for having shortcomings?  Each minute your make yourself miserable could be far more profitably spent. Face it, if self-punishment worked, we’d all be perfect now. Devote a few minutes each day talking lovingly to yourself.  We all need love, even you.


Beyond the Impasse

When I feel stuck, I sometimes “forget” that I am not alone. I am not the only person to be at an impasse.

This is important for a few reasons: 1. There is comfort in having company. 2. A person who has been there can be a good example on how to get beyond the impasse. 3. As you leverage the other person’s experience, you can create renewed momentum.

Oh – one more thing – your getting beyond the impasse can encourage and inspire someone else to do the same. So share your story.

Have a great day,

Inspire Courage

It is essential to have (even a little) courage to achieve your goals and dreams.

To accelerate your advancement, start with a small goal, a bit of courage, and sustainable action. Once you make progress, share your story with others.

When you do, you can revitalize your own motivation, commitment, and determination – and inspire courageous action in others.

Have a great day,
