GOALS DON’T NEED TO BE UPHILL!
Goals are important. However, too often, we either don’t identify them clearly or we set them so high it seems as if we’re going uphill. When I spoke before a great group in Canada, I was at the Calgary Golf and Country Club in Calgary. Since I was there, I took the picture above from […]
POSITIVE MOMENTS CAN BE BENEFICIAL!
Positive moments can be beneficial when we focus on them instead of what’s not currently working. What we focus on expands! Thus, we have to be careful what we think about. It’s easy to focus on the negatives and most people do. Champion focus on positive moments! MY NORTHWESTERN EXPERIENCE When I spoke in Chicago, […]
PEACEFULNESS IS IMPORTANT!
Peacefulness is important to all of us. When I was a newscaster on a radio station in Tulsa, Oklahoma, while in high school in 1965, there was a peaceful song on the radio. “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel, had just been released. It was a beautiful and soothing melody. PEACEFULNESS AT SOOKE […]
FOCUS IS A SHORTCUT TO GREATER SUCCESS!
When we focus success, that can help us reach our most important goals and lead us to even greater success! That concept was brought to mind when I spoke for a group at the magnificent Brasada Ranch, about 30 minutes east of Bend, Oregon. HORSES HAVE BLINDERS! Brasada is much more than a ranch. There […]
ATTITUDE SPEAKER TALKS ABOUT GOALS!
Attitude speaker and goals are two important things to me. I also realize that our attitude toward our goals is very important. Thus, we cannot gamble with that. It’s important to identify our goals, in writing, break them down, and take action. I noticed an attitude lesson when I spoke in Las Vegas and walked […]
ATTITUDE CAN BE ADJUSTED!
Attitude means everything and it needs to be adjusted on a regular basis. I learned an important lesson about adjusting our attitude when I recently spoke in St. Louis and stopped by the famous Gateway Arch. THE WORLD’S TALLEST ARCH According to Wikipedia, “The Gateway Arch is a 630-foot monument in St. Louis. Clad in […]
POSITIVE THINKING BEGINS IN THE MIND!
Positive thinking really works. It is important in determining the success of our future. That future begins every morning when we wake up. At that moment, we subconsciously make a decision as to whether we’ll have a positive or a negative attitude that day. WE HAVE TO BE ON GUARD! It’s harder to have a […]
A GREAT ATTITUDE BEGINS BY BEING REAL NICE!
A great attitude does indeed begin by being real nice. Thus, you would think that simple concept would be understood by everyone. However, it is not. I learned a lot about being real nice when I had a flight cancellation at Washington’s Dulles Airport for a speaking event. Even though my United flight from Dulles […]
HABITS NEED CHANGING TO GET US THERE!
Habits of our past need changing in order to get us where we want to be. However, one good habit to promote is reading the right books because reading builds character. I promote two foundational books. They are: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie and Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. […]
WORRY IS LIKE A CAROUSEL – GET OFF!
Worry is like a carousel and we need to get off! When we worry about something, thoughts go around in our minds in circles and they can keep us from taking positive actions. Where I live, in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, I noticed the other day an amazing Victorian carousel in the […]
