Growing to become the best person that you can be is really what personal development is all about. The best way to be successful is with your persona; growth is to learn as much information as you can and to apply that information whenever possible. Place your personal central principles into practice. Each person has his or her center of beliefs. Use your faith in these principles to drive your faith in yourself. If you do this you will encourage you to be consistent, it is a great trait to have. When considering your own personal development, focus on leadership.

Life is filled with ups and downs, twists and turns, good and not so good times; that’s what makes it interesting and often forces us out of our comfort zones. Frank Herbert said, “Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.” At one time or another, these expected or unexpected, planned or unpredictable circumstances can occur in every aspect of our lives. We experience them at home, in our jobs, in our relationships, physically and/or emotionally, financially, through loss of someone or something, globally, etc. Whether we are encountering them directly or indirectly, it can sometimes be tough dealing with what has come about either […]Continue Reading...

If you want to be successful, you must learn to take responsibility for your own life. Stop relying on others, stop blaming the world, and stop waiting for things to happen – the sooner you realize that you alone are to blame for every misstep you made in life, the sooner you will be able to pick up the pieces and set out on your journey once again. Things happen – sometimes results are hard to accept, but remember that your destiny is an accumulation of all your prior decisions and responses to situations – so own both the good and bad that come with it. Hey, it was YOU […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
We are meant to live on this planet with ease and grace. Funny, it doesn’t seem that ease happens too often, does it? Now, ‘grace’ is the generosity of God that brings us extra goodies whether we deserve them or not. Ease, on the other hand, is something we can bring in for ourselves, mainly by eliminating stress. Who wouldn’t want an easier life? I’m sure I do! Here are five concrete steps you can take towards creating more ease in your life: 1. Drink lots of water, preferably R.O. (reversed osmosis) water with liquid minerals added. Your body is made up of water and minerals. In order to process effectively, your cells […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

At this time of year, it’s a common mental exercise to look back at the last twelve months and evaluate our actions, decisions and results.

When you have low self-esteem or self-confidence, many times it is because you do not love yourself the way you should. Loving yourself is not a conceited type of loving. It is just accepting the good and bad of who you are without putting yourself down. Today, it is difficult to do this sometimes, because of pressure from others to be a certain way. At work, you have to act and perform a particular way. When you go home, you have to be another way. Sometimes you cannot keep up with it all, and you get down on yourself and feel you are failing. To feel like this a little […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
One of the biggest marketing mistakes is one that is so insidious that it’s invisible to most of us. In speaking with thousands of Independent Professionals over the years I’ve asked this question: “Do you think you’re getting paid what you’re worth?” And never, not once in twenty two years, has anyone said, “Yes, I am.” Everyone feels they are not getting paid what they are worth, and yet almost nobody does anything about it.Even if I gave you a dozen strategies to raise your rates or to repackage your services for higher value, you’d likely have a problem doing it because your “wealth thermostat” is set at a fixed […]Continue Reading...

Everyone falls victim to complaining every now and again. That’s why “venting” is such a popular pastime!

The last thing you want is to be “that guy” – the guy no one wants to talk to, for fear he’ll launch into a complaint rant. So, what can you do to stop complaining and get your life back on track – instead of letting it control you? […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
