Making A Brand New End

I have a friend who says he is going to change his telephone voice message greeting. He wants to say, "Thank you for calling. I've been making some changes in my life. Please leave a message. If I don't call you back soon, you're one of the changes."

I don't know if he ever got around to it. But I do know that making personal changes is often what life is all about. We'd better learn
how to welcome change if we want to live fully.

Success... Overnight

All of us have seen people who seem to have created “Success” overnight. We’ve never heard nor seen anything about them and all of a sudden there they are--rich, famous and a household name. Sometimes they’re young, sometimes they’re old but they seem to have captured that “overnight success” magic.

Road Map Of Life

If you were going to drive to somewhere unfamiliar - whether cross country or just across the city - what would be the first thing you would do? Map it out? And then after you mapped it out, would you never look at the map again? Not likely.

More likely, you would refer to the map often, to make sure that you were on the right track. You would be able to tell quickly if you needed to make adjustments, correct a mistake, or consider a change of plans.

Posting your goals, standards, boundaries, mission statement, etc. is very much like having a map to refer to - "A Life Map".

Six Secrets to Ensure Success

If there were only six secrets and they did ensure success, would you want to know? It brings a responsibility with it. Once you know the secrets, you will never be able to ignore them, or, to complain about the lack of success in your life.

If these six secrets ensure success and you know them, will you do what it takes to be successful?

Are You Going Where You Want to Go?

How is your year so far? After good momentum from New Year's resolutions, and 4 months of hard work, it's a great time for a healthy review of action steps and results. This renewal process will help you curb tendencies towards burn out, and help you refocus on the path to success.

But First, Ban the Inner Critic!

In order to have fun while you conduct an effective review and renewal of your goals, first silence the Inner Critic - that negative inner voice that dishes out guilt for all the things you should have done, could have done, or forgot to do.

Yes, There Is A Short-Cut To Success!

Untapped Strategies for Success in Today's Market

Failure and Success

How many times do you have to fail at something in order to succeed? Did you know that Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times while trying to invent the light bulb? He certainly had a "learn and do" attitude! He was able to turn each failed experiment into a successful way not to invent the light bulb. So what can we learn from this? You can adopt the `fail forward' strategy too.


I remember the day I decided to become extremely successful. It was in my penultimate year in medical school. Up until that time I'd been passing my exams, just sailing along, not putting in much effort and not getting much out as a result. The funny thing (funny wierd, that is, not 'funny - ha ha') was that without realizing it, that same mediocre mindset had permeated other aspects of my life. I felt deeply dissatisfied and wasn't enjoying myself. I was also in the habit of blaming others or external circumstances when thing things didn't go my way.

Innovation Creates Success

Innovation creates success and being innovative in your business is one of the keys to being successful. Innovation is the introduction of new processes, new ways of doing things and revolutionising how things have been accomplished previously. Innovation isn't just about
improvement; it's much more than that. Improvement is taking what you have and making it better - doing more of the same but better, whereas innovation is about discovering new methods and making changes.

A Dream With A Time Limit

"A goal is nothing more than a dream with a time limit," says Joe L. Griffith. Great idea! Does having a deadline improve your work habits? Many folks get so much more done when they are clear about when it has to be completed. Why not do this with the things you want most in life?

When you set the bar, you know you can move it. The trick, then, is to make the commitments you make to yourself as important. or, even, more important. than the ones you make to others. For some, that's a revolutionary idea!
