How To Squeeze The Most Out Of Your Time By Brian Tracy

Brian TracyHow do you start your day? Years ago I started planning mine by writing everything down I would have to do, the night before. I found that drawing up your list the night before prompts your subconscious to work on your plans and goals while you sleep. When you wake up, you feel ready to tackle your challenges.

When prioritizing and planning your time, consider the following points:

Key questions.
What is the highest value-added action I can do? What can I and only I do that I’ve done well before to make a difference? Why am I on the payroll?

On Failing By Zig Ziglar

Zig ZiglarMost parents experience the joy of watching their children turn over, then crawl, then stand up and then take those first steps. With outstretched arms they stand two or three steps away and encourage the little one to come to them. Chances are about three trillion to one that when the baby falls down the parent is not going to say, “Okay, you had your chance – you blew it!

Be Your Own Hero By Robin Sharma

Robin Sharma - Author and keynote speakerSo many of us have heroes. Leaders, artists or entrepreneurs that inspire us. People who have made an impact, people who have shown us a better way, people who have overcome outrageous odds.

Yet, the interesting insight about heroes is that they have the human imperfections and weaknesses that we do. They have their bad days, they feel despair, they get knocked down (in fact, heroes get knocked down more than the rest of us).

Yet, in spite of their human frailties, heroes find a way to change the world.

Success A Worthy Destination By Earl Nightingale

Earl NightingaleThe stories of people achieving unusual success despite all manner of handicaps never fail to capture our attention. They’re inspirational to be sure. But they’re much more than that if we study them closely.

The boy whose legs were terribly burned and who was told he’d be lucky to ever walk again becomes a champion track star. The woman blind and deaf from infancy becomes one of the most inspirational figures of the century. And the poor children who rise to fame and fortune have nearly become commonplace.

Goals Get You Going By Les Brown

Les Brown - Motivational Author and SpeakerGoals give you a purpose for taking life on.

People who live without goals have no purpose and it is obvious even in their body language. They are on permanent idle, they slouch, they list from side to side. Their conversations dawdle. They telephone you: “Hey, I’m just calling. I wasn’t doing anything, so I thought I’d call you.” Well, don’t call ME. I’VE got things to do.

Many people just muddle through life. They don’t read informational material, they don’t even pay attention when they WATCH television. If you ask them what they are watching, they mumblemouth, “Nothin’, I’m just lookin’.”

The Four Steps To A Super Attitude By Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy - Author and Speaker on Success TopicsDECIDE HOW TO REACT

It is not what happens to you that counts. It is how you react to what happens to you, especially when you have unexpected problems of any kind.

Here are four things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.

FOCUS ON THE FUTURE

First, whatever challenges you face, focus on the future rather than on the past. Instead of worrying about who did what and who is to blame, focus on where you want to be and what you want to do. Get a clear mental image of your ideal successful future, and then take whatever action you can to begin moving in that direction. Get your mind, your thoughts, and your mental images on the future.

The Power of Positive Habits By Dan Robey

Did you know that habits are incredibly powerful tools for personal growth and success?

Let me ask you a question. When is the last time you made a conscious decision to add a new habit to your life? If you are like most people you probably answered…never!

The reason for this is that most people only think of habits as something bad.

If you ask ten people on the street what the word habit means, nine out of ten will tell you that a habit is a negative action that people do over and over again, like smoking, or procrastinating, or eating too much. But the truth is that positive habits hold the keys to success in virtually everything you do. What are positive habits you ask.

The 11th Element: Why the First Ten Elements Don’t Work Without It By Robert Scheinfeld

Why do we need another element for business success? Dozens of books have been written outlining the ten traditional elements, those very real but sometimes difficult to verbalize components the experts say are part of any successful venture. While these have nothing to do with capitalization, expenditures, cost of goods, sales, marketing or team-building, they certainly can be important.

The ten elements I’m talking about are desire, belief, the law of attraction, goal setting, modeling, creating  clear and detailed plans, taking massive action now, persistence, visualization, and affirmations. But they’re all missing the one ingredient that’s absolutely essential for the creation of business success and wealth-the 11th Element that, when managed correctly, virtually guarantees success.

4 Little Known Secrets of Meditation, Energy and Manifestation By Matt Clarkson

Secret #1: The True Purpose of Meditation

Many people feel a sense of fascination when confronted with the possibility of mystic visions, psychic intuition and heightened mental functioning. While meditators often report these sorts of improvements, these experiences should not be the primary reason for practice. The purpose of meditation is to bring us back to ourselves.

As we become healthier, happier and realize greater self-awareness, the other benefits of meditation begin to follow naturally — improved mental functioning, greater intuition as well as greater access to unconscious resources and abilities.

Secret #2: Distraction Does Not Equal Failure

Just Five Minutes Longer By John Harricharan

John HarricharanThe story has been told and retold countless times about the battle of Waterloo. Poems have been written and songs have been composed detailing every conceivable aspect about it. The English tell it one way and the French share it from a slightly different point of view.

History and legend has it that after Napoleon Bonaparte’s army was defeated and the Duke of Wellington prevailed over the French, Napoleon was taken away and imprisoned. One day a group of newspaper reporters came to visit. They had obtained permission to hold an interview with the famous French general Napoleon Bonaparte.
