Fastest Way To Change Your Life
Recently I was at a business lunch assisting some entrepreneurs on a huge project implementation plan so they could secure investors. I was surrounded by great company at one of my favorite restaurants in the entire region.
The server went around the table and got everyone’s lunch order. When it was time for me to place my order, I got a fresh dark green salad with kalamata olives and blackened shrimp.
Knowing I was a burger nut, and that this restaurant has one of the most amazing burgers on t...
Key philosophies for success
In my home office, beneath the triple monitors connected to my Macbook Pro reads the following quote:
"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials." Lin YutangDerek Sivers is a musician and the creator of the company CD Baby, which went on to do over $100 million in sales before he sold the company in 2008. One of my favorite articles he wrote is titled “No ”yes.“ Either ”HELL YEA...
We cannot complain about things we refuse to change.
There were two houses out in the country, two neighbors had been next door neighbors for decades. They knew each other really well and were great friends. Their houses were side by side with a short distance in between. One of the neighbors was on his front porch enjoying coffee in the morning, like he always did. The neighbor's dog was sitting on their steps and howling, and it annoyed the neighbor so much that he finally sat down his cup of coffee, got up, went over to his neighbor's house and...
They were wrong about a LOT.
A young girl walks out of her bedroom down the hall and smells a lovely aroma seeping from the kitchen. She decides to investigate and walks in to the kitchen to see the familiar sight of her mother cooking intently. Her mom opens the lid of the pot on the stove and gives the contents a good stir as the oven preheat temp alarm starts to chime. She closes the lid on the stove and prepares the large ham to go in the oven. Before she places the ham in the oven, she cuts the ends off of the ham and ...
It's ALL hard.
I know of a guy who is outstanding to say the least. He is a best-selling self-published author. He has a supportive family. He mentors countless people. He is a phenomenal and highly requested speaker, and a very driven and determined individual. He is not afraid of hard work, gets back up when he is kicked down, and is the image of determination. He can go against insurmountable odds and crush them in order to win. In fact, he coaches other people to do the same. The only fallback he has, is h...

If not, design one!
The life you live is one that is created by your daily choices compounded over time. These choices control and shape your destiny. Instead of designing these daily choices, most people just whip through them and do not like where they lead.
I'll prove it to you. Think about this:
• The average marriage ends in divorce.• The average household, the husband and wife both work and do not feel they see their children enough.• The average household is $13,884 in credit card debt.• The average college...
It was at the crack of 10 O’ clock one morning this week when I found myself catching a plane to go speak across the country. I’ve always preferred flying over driving because, while on the plane, it allows me to concentrate on whatever it is that I wish to concentrate on, be it email, reading a book, typing a blog, writing in my journal, writing notes, reviewing documents, organizing my fast paced life, listening to a podcast, prioritizing tasks, communicating with my assistant or whatever else...

Do you have financial goals for 2017? Do you have a goal or vision to increase your income in 2017? Make sure you design your life intelligently. An increase in income does not improve happiness. It’s the type of income that you generate that is important. If you made twice as much money in 2017 as you did in 2016, but you had to work twice as hard to make it or had to work twice as many hours, would that make you happy? Probably not. If you are wanting to increase your income in 2017, you need ...
