    Turn Obstacles Into Opportunity

    Turn Obstacles Into Opportunity

    Turn Obstacles Into Opportunity
    Have you ever wondered how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to think so much?
    What if the future or your past didn’t matter?
    Imagine if you didn’t worry about the possessions, success, or drama of others?
    What would happen if you believed that YOU are in control? 
    Now you are starting to think like a Stoic Philosopher.
    Stoicism is about paring down and simplifying. They eliminate unproductive traits that define the majority of the population. One of the most common is by turning obstacles upside down, creating opportunities, and seeing them as teachable moments.
    For a Stoic, every bad thing becomes a new source of good. 
    Marcus Aurelius said it this way,
    “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in your way becomes the way.”

    Making Space For Your Dreams

    Making Space For Your Dreams

    Making Space For Your Dreams
    John Lennon was famous for saying, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans."
    Over the years, I've found that folks tend to do what serves them best - at the moment. One thing I know for sure. Keeping yourself busy with day-to-day is a sure-fire way to make sure dreams stay dreams. It's also an exhausting way to live. 
    Are you ready to set yourself free?
    While you may not believe it, if you want something different in your life, all you need to do is start doing it. It's simple as that.
    Forget limitations, excuses, past experiences, worry, and, most importantly, what others say.
    Whatever it is you want to do - do it now.
    I promise. Everything will change for the better as soon as you begin.

      Living Without Self-Inflicted Drama

      Living Without Self-Inflicted Drama

      Living Without Self-Inflicted Drama
    Are you the kind of person who is always running around putting out fires - fires you set? 
    I think it is time that we take away your matches and lighter fluid.
    Here are a few things to think about:
    1) If your life is non-stop drama, stress, and craziness, there is a chance that YOU are the cause. There is also a good chance that you don’t see it that way.
    2) Living with your hair on fire will keep you busy that you can spend years wondering why you can’t get what you want.
    3) When you stop doing anything that results in more craziness knocking at your door, you will find that life is pretty quiet. Quiet is where all good stuff happens.
    It’s a Universal truth. You are 100% in charge of every action you choose to take - or not. Choose good ones.

    How To Make Sure Dreams Can Become Real

    How To Make Sure Dreams Can Become Real

    How To Make Sure Dreams Can Become Real
    Everybody has dreams. Daydreams, dreams while you sleep, and dreams of what you wish for the future.
    I’ve always believed that dreams are goals you have nurtured to become real in your life.
    But how do you know if the voice speaking to your heart will lead you in the right direction?
    I was reading Brant Pinvidic’s book, The 3-Minute Rule. His approach to better presentations happens to be my approach to goal validation.
    When an idea pops into your head, ask yourself four questions:
    1) What is it? Do you understand exactly what you want?
    2) How does it work? How will you go about reaching your goal? What will likely be the outcome?
    3) Can you do it? Is your plan reasonable? Do you have the time, skills, money?
    4) Are you sure? If you are willing to put in the effort are you confident you can achieve your goal?
    Use these next time something is holding you back from turning your dreams into reality. I promise. The clarity you are seeking is around the corner.

    2020 Success Hacks (Part One)

    2020 Success Hacks (Part One)

    2020 Success Hacks (Part One)
    As we begin a new year and decade, I thought I would give a little motivational tough love.
    Before I get going -
    No matter what you desire in 2020, remember that life and business are about solving problems. The bigger your dreams, the bigger your problems. If you want what nobody else has, you need to solve problems that nobody else will.
    So, how do you begin with a bang?
    1) Decide what you want in 2020. Be specific. Anything less is what average people do.
    2) Decide to pay the price of your success. You’ve heard it before and it’s true. Short-term pain leads to long-term gain. The future value of your life depends on the current value of your effort.
    3) Own your goals. You don’t need to ask permission from anybody. You don’t even need to say a word. Put your head down and get to work.
    4) Since you’ve decided what you want. Don’t accept your excuses.
    When it’s time to get to work -
    5) Start your day early. Do what is important to you before the day begins.
    6) Set your focus and starting point. Pick the first task, finish, and move on to the next. Keep going until you get what you want.
    7) Hold space for what is essential for you.
    8) Develop the habit of deep work. Two hours of uninterrupted work per day will change your life.
    9) Don’t get caught up in believing you need Networking, Joint Ventures, Collaborations, and Partnerships. Yes, you need some - but not many. Trust yourself and start creating. Let everybody else catch up.
    10) Don’t get caught up in learning. If you stumble, find your answer, and get back to work. If another question pops up, repeat.
    11) Apply never-ending massive imperfect action. Don’t worry about the mess. You can clean it up later.
    Tomorrow we’ll chat about how to gain a HUGE advantage while accelerating your success.

    Why You Should Limit Your Choices

    Why You Should Limit Your Choices

    Why You Should Limit Your Choices
    Do you have too many choices in your life? 
    In 2005, Barry Schwartz wrote The Paradox of Choice. It challenged the traditional thinking that said, the way to maximum freedom is to maximize choice. 
    Too many choices are not necessarily a good thing. They can create paralysis. Not to mention, no matter what you choose, you'll always wonder if you could have done better.
    Here's my advice to you:
    1) Limit choices. Narrow your list to items you have already experienced. Having every option won't serve you.
    2) Be sure to permit yourself to try other possibilities IF needed - but only after you've vetted your first.
    3) Stay in your lane and keep things simple. 
    Too many choices are part of modern life. If you can't make a decision - shorten your list of what is important.
