6 Vital Strategies to Limit Risk and Maximize Success By Robert Pagliarini

Robert PagliariniGet three strikes in baseball and you’re out. But what if that weren’t the case? What if you could swing and swing and swing without ever striking out?

I have a metal paperweight on my desk with the inscription, “What would you do if you could not fail?” It’s a nice ornament with a positive message, but over the past several years I’ve realized that it’s the wrong message. Anybody can fail at anything. It’s important to know that going in. A much better and more useful message would be, “What would you do if it didn’t matter if you failed?” To me, that’s much more realistic and powerful.

Visualize and Expect Success By Denis Waitley

Denis WaitleyOur studies of high achievers have shown that no matter how different their personalities, work habits, occupations or gender, the people who accomplish great things in life have visualized and expected success all along.

They’ve had the ability to vividly picture their achievements and to reassure themselves in the face of long odds that they would come through.

To visualize the person you want most to become, set aside some time this week in which you can create an atmosphere conducive to re-affirming your life dreams.

Advice On Attracting Positive Habits By Vic Johnson

Vic Johnson motivational speaker, author“People do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.”  – As A Man Thinketh

To put it another way: When you stop working on what it is you’re trying to get, and start working on you, only then will you get what it is you want.

It really is very basic when you think about it. Jim Rohn says, “To attract attractive people, you must be attractive. To attract powerful people, you must be powerful. To attract committed people, you must be committed. Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself. If you become, you can attract.”

10 Things That Kill Motivation By Kevin Ngo

There is a lot that has been written about how to motivate yourself when your motivation is weak.

Many of those motivation techniques are great, but in order to make them even more effective, let’s take a look at 10 things that kill motivation in order to figure out what causes our motivation to die in the first place.

1. No goals

Without goals, you really don’t need motivation. I mean, what in the world would you do with it? Run around in circles? Many people complain about not being motivated to do anything. The majority of the time, it’s because they don’t have any goals that excite them enough to do anything.

Flying Into Headwinds By Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy - motivational speaker and authorWhen you set off toward a new destination or goal, like taking off in an airplane, you will have an idea of both your departure time and your arrival time. You will set a schedule for yourself and expect to arrive pretty much on schedule. But as soon as you take off, you will experience what pilots call “unexpected headwinds.”

The situation in your life is similar. As soon as you embark on a new journey, you will experience headwinds as well: everything will cost twice as much and take three times longer than you anticipated. You should estimate how long you will take to achieve certain milestones and then triple that time to get the actual time period required.

The Laws of Adversity By Joe Tye

Joe Tye - motivational speaker and authorBad things happen to good people. It’s not fair, but it’s true. Other than the fact that it was beautifully written, I think the reason Harold Kushner’s book struck such a chord (and was such a huge international bestseller) is that we can all relate to the title.

We’ve all seen it happen – to ourselves or to others (or all of the above). If life is a journey, then we all at some point pass through the valley of the shadow of death.

The Audacity of Apollo by Jim Stovall

Sometimes, we have to peer into the dim recesses of the past to visualize how bright the future can be.

Most of us remember watching Neal Armstrong, live or on videotape, as he stepped onto the surface of the moon.  We remember that grainy, shadowy, black and white image as he assured us that it was one small step for man but a giant leap for mankind.

History has proven that Neal Armstrong was right, but if his small step for man took place in July of 1969, I would submit for your consideration that the giant leap for mankind took place on May 25, 1961–more than eight years before Neal Armstrong struggled down the ladder of the Apollo landing craft.

I’m on a Passion Quest By Marcia Wieder

Marcia Wieder - motivational dream coachYou can create a Passion Quest to find your purpose, create new dreams and gain greater clarity. You don’t even have to put your whole life on hold.

You can take a day, weekend, week or year… the purpose is to find, discover or reconnect to what you love… and then to follow it.

Let life lead you to and through the unknown where amazing gifts and insights often await. Connecting with yourself on a deeper level will help you achieve your dreams so in order to do this; you might choose to go on a Passion Quest.

Be an Embodiment of the Person You’d Like to Be By Mark Victor Hansen

Mark Victor Hansen - motivational speaker and authorBeing starts with simply being that which you would like to become. Once you mediate and hold the belief within yourself that you are what you would like to be, you start becoming that very thing, from the inside out!

Embodying what you would like to become transforms you. You already hold the traits within you that you would like to become.

In fact, it wouldn’t be possible to envision this new “person” you would like to be if you weren’t actually able to achieve that very vision. Allow yourself to feel it. And allow yourself to believe it.

Top Five Action Steps To Get You Moving In The Right Direction By Randy Taylor

1) Persistence – Persistence is the fuel that gets done what needs to be done everyday. Persistence comes to us from two sources; either from passion or from persistence itself.

The motivation from persistence itself shows up when you are driven to continue to grow and learn and reach higher on the days when the motivation has waned.

One way to ensure that you are focused everyday is to simply change your philosophy of how you view the day itself. Most of us begin our day with a things to do list. What may prove to be more effective is to create a daily TTWGD list. This stand for; THINGS THAT WILL GET DONE! This simple change of philosophy will create the mindset to complete ALL activities on your list everyday.
