Here’s a post from my Facebook timeline. See if you can relate to it. I asked life, “Why are you so difficult?” Life smiled and said, “You people never appreciate easy things.” If you’re anything like me (and I suspect we’re alike in many ways), you may get busy doing a lot of activity but not seeing a lot of results.

As Stephen Covey teaches in his book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,Read More
By Debbie Mrazek In selling, it’s all about doing what you know each and every day. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your sales quota. Whether you are a veteran climber in the sales field or a newbie traveler, the same steps that make one person successful work for others too. Just realize that it comes down to this: You just have to do more of what you know works and do less of what you know doesn’t work. When you begin doing more of the things that work, it will become easier and easier to doRead More

Do you realize a tiny shift can completely change the course of your journey?
To understand this, consider the boiling point of water. At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, just one degree more, it boils. And with boiling water, comes steam. And that steam can power a train. So, what made the difference? The one extra degree.
I’ve also read that one degree off in your calculation in sailing will take you in a whole new location. A one degree shift might seem insignificant, but it can transform your life.Read More

In his TEDx talk Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Action, Simon Sinek contends, “People don’t buy what you do; they buy WHY you do it.” Earlier this month I attended the Wealthy Visionary Conference in Los Angeles and had the amazing opportunity to learn from Ridgely Goldsborough, co-founder of the WHY Formula.

Your story was given to you to share with others, and for some that hear it the impact is life-changing. When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else. – Iyanla Vanzant Here are three ways to accessRead More
Your message is an aspect of your purpose – it is at the heart of why you are here. My mentor, Tim Kelley, author of True Purpose says, Your message is the wisdom you bring to share with the world – wisdom you have been given in order to share it with others. It is something you transmit, something that passes from you to them. It is the deepest truth you can share. For most, the message is the scariest aspect of purpose and usually the last to be revealed. People have mixed feelings about having a message: they bothRead More
