As you are well aware, setting a goal is never the most challenging part of striving for success. Following through or working towards achieving it, is where many fail.

So here are 8 strategies to help you get started on becoming a person that people want to succeed with. Continue reading

Sometimes, saying that life is tough, feels like an understatement. There are just days that seem brutal and unforgiving. Worse is when those days go on for prolonged periods of time, days or weeks.

And depending on the industry you’re in, luck can find its way to serving you in a way that almost feels like Santa Clause knew exactly what to get you for Christmas.

Drive is essential in keeping you going in the never ending battle to become successful. I look at drive as being a combination of motivation and vision. You can hardly accomplish much when you lack motivation. And you cannot work towards achieving something if you can’t envision the results you want.

But unfortunately many of us focus on the least effective type. Continue reading
