I have always believed that in order to acquire success, you have to change from who you are now to the type of person that succeeds. If you aren’t a successful business person now, then you need to adopt the mindset and habits of the type of business person that succeeds. Continue reading




It’s harder to cut down a tree with a blunt axe. So those who are most experienced at doing that sort of work, spend some time sharpening their axes before they begin. The inexperienced may not know how important this is and risk making their work cutting down a tree… that much harder. Continue reading




After a plane takes off, the first thing the pilots do is ensure that the plane’s heading is aligned to its destination. One obvious reason is that having a straight-line path to the destination from the start, is fuel efficient. Another obvious but less thought of reason is that by not setting your plane on course early, you simply increase the chances of never getting to your destination. Continue reading




Would I be wrong to assume that the number of people who set New Year’s resolutions in January, is much higher than the number of people who review them in December? And by review, I don’t mean just asking yourself whether or not you achieved your goals. You also need to ask yourself why you got the results you got. Continue reading




Momentum is one of the least talked about topics when it comes to making progress towards your goals… yet it plays a major role.

At one point in my life, I almost completely gave up on the idea that I could make a better life for myself if I just worked extra hard. Up to that point, I had lived a life that seemed to strongly suggest that only a select few were destined to truly succeed in life… and that I wasn’t one of them. Continue reading




Over the course of my life, way too many people have said that phrase to me in one form or another. But during the early stages of my pursuit… I never truly could understand what patience really meant. Continue reading




While failing typically feels undesirable, most seasoned goal achievers appreciate it as a necessary component in helping you better understand what you need to do to succeed. Expecting to succeed in the pursuit of a goal while hoping to never run into a challenge… can be compared to expecting to win a tournament final having never faced any opponent prior to that moment. What are the odds of succeeding in that? Continue reading




Your goals are not going to accomplish themselves. Even if you are working with others to achieve a common goal, you will still need to ensure that the specifics of the life you are trying to build are met by you. Continue reading




I sometimes wonder if what I’m about to post is a little too “philosophical” to talk about on this blog about self-development. Because many other articles on personal growth and success often get right to the point, stating that “If you want to achieve THIS , you need to do THAT several times a day and in 30 days, you will get exactly what you want.” Continue reading
