    Today is Another Chance to Succeed

    Today is Another Chance to Succeed

    Is it me, or does living life these days make you feel like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day? 
    When it comes to working toward goals, that can be a tremendous asset. It's also something that will break you free when things don't feel like they are going your way.
    Everybody has ups and downs. Up days are lots of fun. Down days make you want to crawl under a rock. But like the movie, with the right mindset, you always get another chance to try again.
    How would you feel if every day was a chance to tweak, adjust, flex, or reinvent your approach to living?
    What if everything got more comfortable as you built your knowledge of what works best for you?
    How empowered would you feel if you knew that every day was a do-over day?
    As long as the sun rises and the sun sets, it doesn't matter if you succeed or fail the previous day. Today is always a new day for making your dreams come true.
    That'll make you get out of bed.

    How To Break Bad Habits

    How To Break Bad Habits

    How To Break Bad Habits
    Have you struggled to break a habit?
    Bad habits are not good. They will mess up your day. They are also not permanent. You weren’t born with bad habits, and you are not required under penalty of law to keep bad habits. 
    Since there’s no real reason to keep bad habits, let’s replace them the easy way.
    Nobody likes to give up what’s comfortable - even if it’s not serving you. Instead, start a new behavior and replace the bad before it mucks up your life again. 
    Breaking bad habits is doing new behaviors instead of old behaviors. No muss. No-fuss. Be consistent and persistent, and you will wipe that old habit away forever.

    The Path All Relationships Follow

    The Path All Relationships Follow

     When I first met my wife, Joi, I knew we would be married and live happily ever after. But there was a problem. Joi didn’t see it that way - at least not right away.
    If life has taught me anything, it’s that almost nobody is on the same page when they first meet. We might be in the same book but not on the same page. 
    In the early weeks of our relationship, I was in full-on action mode, and I was on a mission to achieve my goal as quickly as possible. I was also getting frustrated since Joi didn’t seem to share my urgency. She was enjoying our relationship and in no hurry. One day, I decided to take action -
    I dragged myself out of bed at 4:30 AM, drove 30 minutes, and waited for Joi to arrive at the gym. I met her when she stepped out of her car, nearly scaring her to death, and said,
    “I love you. What do I have to do to catch you? We should…” 
    Stopped by a kiss, she said, “We’ll know in about 6-months. Let’s enjoy the ride.”
    It wasn’t the answer I was looking for, but Joi had given me something even more powerful. She gave me an expectation, I knew her rules, how to play the game, and that she was right. 
    All relationships, romantic, friendship, or professional, follow the same path. There is an initial spark, a period of trust-building, and finally, commitment. In time, the relationship grows stronger or will fade. Time will tell.
    That’s how it works and how it went for us. Exactly 6-Months later, to the day, I asked Joi to marry me, and she said yes. That was 15 years ago.

    Real Purpose is Waiting For You

    Real Purpose is Waiting For You

    There's an idea floating within your mind. Soon it will demand your attention. 
    Is this all there is? 
    Am I destined for something bigger?
    Your real purpose will arrive in your life when you:
    1) Accept WHO you are and have always been. You are beautiful just the way you are.
    2) Accept WHAT you do when you are doing you. Life is far more enjoyable when you spend most of your time in your comfort zone - and step out occasionally.
    3) Accept WHEN when you want to start living in the moment. Now is a good time.
    4) Accept WHERE you are in your life. As long as you know where you are, you can go anywhere.
    Accepting your real purpose is revealed by daily actions. If you want to go in a new direction, change what you do. Start today.

    Get What You Want By Doing Nothing

    Get What You Want By Doing Nothing

    Before I begin, I want to define what I mean by doing nothing.
    I don’t see doing ‘nothing’ as something unproductive. Instead, I see ‘nothing’ as a protected personal space that lies between your thoughts and your actions. 
    It is a place that provides a contemplation and planning opportunity before launching into massive and focused action design to reach your outcome and achievement of your goal.
    It is a holding space where inspiration, desperation, motivation, even intimidation, bubble up into your consciousness and await your next action.
    Instead of moving your thoughts immediately into action mode or never moving at all, both of which cause unnecessary drama, you purposefully quarantine your thoughts until you are assured in your success plan or decide to take a new direction.
    Doing nothing looks like this:
    1) All thoughts and potential actions arrive in your mind and are held for evaluation.
    2) Unless based on a previous decision and cleared for instant action, you always take the time to ensure that your actions will lead you to your vision.
    3) If you don’t know the absolute end-game of your journey, you are still on another path. Don’t take a step until you know where you are one your new path.
    In the end, doing nothing is a place in your mind where you choose your path, direct your actions, and create your legacy. It is a place of personal respect that is built into you and will allow you to have the most significant impact on yourself and the world around you.
    I don’t know about you, but I get a lot of good thinking time when I’m doing nothing. That time is priceless.
    If doing something takes you off track, you might be better off doing nothing - at least for a little while.

    3 Steps Required to Change Anything

    3 Steps Required to Change Anything

    Is a title like "Three Steps Required to Change Anything" an oversimplification of what it takes to get what you want?
    Or… is it the acceptance that everything is simple - until we complicate it.
    If you guess the second, you will get along just fine.
    So, what are those three steps?
    The first step to getting anything you want is to KNOW what you want. Many will argue that the first step is the most difficult. Like they say, "work with the outcome in mind." I don't see it this way and believe it's not more complicated than what follows.
    Next, you need to know how you will accomplish your goal by establishing a framework or roadmap to get there. No, you won't see every step you must take, but unless you are living under a rock, you will know the significant accomplishments that must happen. Just look around, and you'll see them everywhere.
    Finally, you must take consistent and disciplined action toward your goal with every waking moment. Every time you allow your focus to drift, you find yourself taking longer to reach your outcome.
    So, there it is. While many nuances will challenge you, the basic steps to getting what you want are simple -
    Know it. Map it. Do it.
