Help Others

Help Others
It is easy to get overwhelmed by all the people and all the movements and all the causes that ask for and need our help. Don’t get jaded. Apathy is your enemy, remember? Care, and care deeply for others. Choose your cause and get active. I definitely follow the philosophy that most often, the helping hand we need is at the end of our own arms. However, this does not mean we don’t sometimes need a ...

Resentment

Resentment
Resentment of our self or others is like growing a spreading cancer in our bodies that we have the choice to cure, and yet some of us refuse to do it.  We all know that resentment truly is like us drinking poison and expecting the other person to get hurt. It is just not a productive emotion to get what you want. Leaders forgive. Winners forgive. They move forward. Winners learn from the action. C...

Self Leadership

Self Leadership
Are you beginning to get clear on who you are, why you’re here, and what you want? Are you beginning to see that you can get what you want? I want you to get what you want. Successful people are very clear on who they are, what they want, and how they are going to get it. Most people usually are not clear on who they are, do not know what they want, and do not know where they are going. They are c...

Perspective

Perspective
A life changing personal development lesson is one on perspective. How we feel,  does not come from an EVENT that happens. How we feel, comes from our INTERPRETATION OF AN EVENT that happens. It is easy to peg a situation as being a good thing or a bad thing for us. Sometimes, it is beneficial to take a longer perspective.   Here’s a story to illustrate the point. A wise man won the lottery man...

Practicing Gratitude

Practicing Gratitude
Many of us think that we don’t have a morning ritual or that we don’t have time for one, but let me assure you — you do. In fact, your morning ritual is so ingrained that you probably don’t even realize it’s there. Every day, many of us wake up and tell ourselves, “I didn’t get enough sleep” or “I don’t have enough time.” Or both. Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money, says that these though...

Believe In Yourself

Believe In Yourself
The four most important words you can tell another human being for encouragement is, “I believe in you!” It feels great to hear, doesn’t it? It is empowering to know that someone believes in you! Why do you think that is? Belief in yourself is a fundamental key skill to live the life you want. We must know down to our bones that we can do it, that we have what it takes, and that we have faith w...

6 Strategies To Improve Self-Discipline

6 Strategies To Improve Self-Discipline
I would like to cover six important strategies to improve self-discipline.  Let’s take a moment to define what exactly self-discipline is and how it differs from motivation because I think a lot of people get these two terms confused. To start, I will share a quote from writer Samuel Thomas Davies because it actually answers both questions in a clear cut way: “Self-discipline is about leaning into...

Who Are You

Who Are You
Do you know yourself? Have you ever had a "numero-uno" date with yourself and your notepad? Who are you? Really, who are you? This is a fabulous question to ask. A great end of year gift to yourself is to write a one-page bio on you. Who are you right here, right now? The reason it is so important to explore this is because it gives you your starting point. If you were pushed out of a plane and p...
