Loneliness Is Tremendous by Charlie Tremendous Jones

Charlie Tremendous Jones - inspirational author and speakerLeadership begins with loneliness. What is leadership, what does a leader do? A leader is simply one who goes ahead, one who sets the pace, paves the way.

I think it needs to be said too, that any company, church, community or agency must have at least one courageous person who is willing, I said willing, not able. There are many who are not willing, and others who could do the job better, if they would.

Many never arrive simply because they really never get started. Once you decide to set the pace and move ahead, you discover why many refuse to pay the price of leadership.

Character Development – How to be a Class Act

Zig Ziglar - author and speakerFrom time to time someone gives another individual the ultimate compliment by saying, “You are a ‘class act,'” or by describing a specific behavior by saying, “That’s class.” From time to time a master of ceremonies will introduce an individual by saying, “If you go to the dictionary and look up the word ‘class,’ you will see a picture of your speaker this evening.”

A person with class is an individual of integrity, someone you would love to have as a parent or child, a friend or a neighbor, a mentor or an advisor. In short, class identifies a person who is “top drawer,” one who goes the extra mile by being gracious to everyone who courteously serves them.

The Value of Intuitive Insights By John Harricharan

John Harricharan - authorIt was not too long ago that all we knew of successful business persons was that they worked hard, were very bright and efficient. Hardly did anyone use the words “intuition” and “business” in the same conversation. Gut feelings and marketing seemed to be worlds apart with the divine injunction that “never the twain shall meet.” Yet, most recent studies are showing that perhaps we’ve been missing something.

Happiness is Yours for the Taking By Chris Widener

Chris Widener - motivational speaker and authorHappiness. The pursuit of so many. In fact, we are known in America as those who live for “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” But so many seem without happiness. Why is this? Is happiness truly elusive or do we simply not know how to take hold of it? It is my contention that happiness is yours for the taking. That is, anyone can be happy if the choose to be… and if they know how to get it.

3 Steps to Reaching Every Goal

Having goals in our lives is important. For some, merely creating goals brings about a positive change.

When you make a goal, you are creating an exciting challenge for yourself. To make sure you meet that challenge with the right tools, you will need to do three things.

1. WRITE IT DOWN

The first step is to write your goal down on paper. This may seem like a simple step, but it makes your goal visible and tangible. Get out a clean sheet of paper, and write your goal down in clear words.

7 Ways to Get More Done By Jon Gordon

Jon Gordon, Author and inspirational speakerMy wife and I have an inside joke… I tell her about various authors in my field such as Wayne Dyer who go on writing retreats for a month or two at a time to write a new book.

I’ll say jokingly, “If Wayne did it with a family maybe I could too.” She responds just as I would expect. “You can go on a writing retreat but we may not be here when you get back.”

The fact is there is no way I could go or would want to go on a writing retreat even if she was ok with it.

The Lundy-Smiths By Zig Ziglar

Zig ZiglarThe Lundy-Smiths are a remarkable family from inner-city New Orleans. Susie Mae Lundy and husband, Willie J. Smith, a Baptist pastor, raised nine successful children. According to FORTUNE magazine, the parents set an entrepreneurial example built around commitment, faith and hard work. Each child grew up with assigned responsibilities. By age five the six boys were expected to hose down and sweep the driveway of the family’s Exxon gas station and auto repair shop.

Larry Lundy, owner of 31 Pizza Hut outlets, says they knew that what the family ate at the end of the day was contingent upon what they did during the day. That kind of motivation is pretty easy to understand–and can be very effective.

Labor that Works Miracles By Jim Rohn

Jim Rohn - author and business speakerTwo thousand years ago on April 15th one of Jesus’ disciples came to him and said it was time to pay taxes (that’s how I know it was around April 15th), but they had no money. In response to his disciple’s statement Jesus said “no problem”. Now why could he say “no problem”? Well, word had it that Jesus was a miracle worker. If you hand a problem to a miracle worker what they are inclined to say is “no problem”. You’ve got to hang out with people like that.

Bluntness By Dr Tony Alessandra

If you can’t understand this one, you’re pretty stupid… See what I mean? Most of us know better than to call other people names and insult their intelligence.

Being assertive about our opinions and beliefs is fine, but at some point, assertiveness crosses over into bluntness. And that means you haven’t taken the other person’s feelings into account.

Find out if bluntness is a problem for you. To do that simply ask five of the people closest to you at home and at work something like: “Do I come across as too blunt sometimes?” “Do I say things that hurt other people’s feelings without realizing it?” If you get back some “yes” answers, then you need to pay attention to the ways you communicate.

Read All the Books By Jim Rohn

Jim RohnAll of the books that we will ever need to make us as rich, as healthy, as happy, as powerful, as sophisticated and as successful as we want to be have already been written.

People from all walks of life, people with some of the most incredible life experiences, people that have gone from pennies to fortune and from failure to success have taken the time to write down their experiences so that we might share in their wealth of knowledge.
