Quick Hit: Goals

Quick Hit: Goals

The idea of setting goals is simple: determine what you WANT then decide WHEN you are going to have it.

Money, business success, career advancement, family relationships — EVERYTHING — depends on you ability to set crystal-clear goals.

It separates the winners from those who work hard and continuously come up short

30 Day Purpose Challenge

30 Day Purpose Challenge

Ten years ago, on September 9th, 2009 we launched Success On Purpose.

Over the last 10 years we have seen thousands of lives changed by the simple process we developed to first help people FIND their authentic purpose in life… and more importantly… go on to actually LIVE it.

Without question, there are two great tragedies in life.

The first is to never know your true purpose…

The second is to know your purpose but never live it fully.

Chaos Driven Success: How to Escape The Valley of Despair

Chaos Driven Success: How to Escape The Valley of Despair

Chaos Driven Success. The economy is once again going into a period of absolute chaos. This is GREAT news for the prepared but TERRIBLE news for people clutching to failed strategies, practices, and out-dated thinking…

Phil Knight is right.

Chaos is inevitable but it can be managed with the right leadership skills.

With the right skills, you grow powerful and successful.

Wealth, freedom, opportunity, and respect are your rewards.

Permit chaos to rule, you will die broke, humiliated, and stupid.

Regrets will take the place of results and you either give up, give in, or work yourself to death trying everything…

The Passion Habit: First Ask WHY?

The Passion Habit: First Ask WHY?

Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the original meaning of the word.

When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.

That’s a good start.

But passion actually means something entirely different:

A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love.

The Wellness Habit

The Wellness Habit

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.

It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare.

“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.

According to several studies, the most common health problem in the world is depression. This problem is often manifested in the form of insomnia, stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, obesity, and heart disease, etc.

Irrespective of a person’s age, size, shape or perceived attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work.

The Authenticity Habit

The Authenticity Habit

The Truth Will Set You Free…

You’ve heard this your whole life.

But it is hard to know what is true, factual, and absolutely authentic.

Fake news, fake photos, fake people…

They live to deceive.

Which, they believe gives them power.

In fact, the opposite is true.

The Honor Habit

The Honor Habit

It’s Independence Day here in America!

We fought with honor for the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We fight for freedom.

We fight for success.

We fight for the right to be challenged.

We fight for the right to find our own path in life, unencumbered by the shackles of bondage and despair.

Samuel Smiles said it best…

The Goals Habit

The Goals Habit

I love to start with a common definition, but we all know what a goal is and can mouth the meaning easily…

A GOAL is a DREAM with a DEADLINE.

You have some dream — more money, a second home, real career power — whatever, so the only question is, WHEN do you expect it to show up?

A great goal presupposes you know the big WHY…

And believe you have the skills to make it happen… the big HOW.

With the what, when, how, and why set the outcome is simple to see…

You either can take the actions necessary to achieve it, or not.

The Leadership Habit

The Leadership Habit

What is leadership? A simple definition is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.

In a business setting, this can mean directing workers and colleagues with a strategy to meet the company’s needs.

This leadership definition captures the essentials of being able to inspire others and being prepared to do so. Effective leadership is based upon ideas (whether original or borrowed), but won’t happen unless those ideas can be communicated to others in a way that engages them enough to act as the leader wants them to act.

The Courage Habit

The Courage Habit

Courage is a giant word that simply means the ability to ACT in the face of challenges.

To ACT in the face of your fears.

To ACT when you have imperfect information.

To ACT when you know you must do the right thing, regardless of the cost.

This is a HABIT to be grown, not just a response to a condition.

Small Business Success Is All About Thinking Strategically

Small Business Success Is All About Thinking Strategically

As CEO of The TQsmart family of sites I thought I would end this year with some advice for next year.

Advice for people in small businesses who want to grow and turn their hard work into a pile of cash and great memories.

Advice for people who are working too HARD and not seeing the fruits of their labor.

Advice even for myself and team of people all working together to build extraordinary new products.

Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

According to Chronos, “Empowerment entails creating an environment that fosters growth. For small businesses, empowerment can take many forms, each with the potential to enhance your organization’s efficiency and profitability, as well as your ability to work with others toward common goals. Sharing power might be hard at first, but focus on the long-term benefits of improving the function of all the various aspects of your business.”

3 Vital Rules of Business Success

3 Vital Rules of Business Success

Follow these 3 rules and you have a real shot of achieving entrepreneurial greatness.

Don’t, and no matter how hard you work… how hard you want success… it just won’t happen.

I have tried it both ways.

A couple of times I skipped rule 1 and 2… resulting in total disaster.

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox…

The dilemma — you want to grow your small business to become a titan of industry.

The paradox is that your business cannot grow any bigger than its leaders.

It will never grow beyond your abilities because you simply will not let it.

In the end, the more you try to grow, the faster you will fail…

Business Success In Hours Not Years

Business Success In Hours Not Years

The Hard Way or the Easy Way…

There is a hard way to build a company and there is an easy way to do it.

The hard way is what most people choose, relying on experience and trial and error — which is WHY 50% of all businesses fail within 36-48 months.

The easy way is to invest an hour a week in actual strategic planning — not general business planning which is useless — and determine what you are going to make happen. This is the key to growing the next Apple, Whole Foods, Nike… even the next hot new restaurant.

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

That, of course is the desire.

But the reality is, most businesses will simply ignore the idea of creating an actual strategy, instead, attempting to throw a bunch of random tactics at the day to day issues every business faces.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

The Power of Unconditional Commitment

The Power of Unconditional Commitment

Total Commitment…

As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.

Today it is on the power of total commitment.

As we say in The Golden Game, there is a big difference between INTEREST and COMMITMENT.

Think about this the next time you order bacon and eggs.

The hen is merely interested in your breakfast…

The pig is totally committed!

Commitment can be thought of as your intention to produce a result.

Leading A Sales Revolution…

As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.

Today it is on the process of turning a prospect into an actual paying customer.

As we say in The Golden Game, there is a big difference between MARKETING and SELLING.

Marketing is all about values and establishing the customer’s wants, desire and need for what you have to offer.

Selling is the belly-to-belly dance where you part the prospect with money, provide him a fabulous product and service, and he presumably becomes your customer for life.

Billions Are Being Spent To Make Machines Smarter… But Who’s Going to Make You Smarter Than a Machine?

We have become a “survival of the smartest” global economy where human capital needs to be retooled, reimagined, and reinvented. And we need to do it quickly.

Put simply, we need to make people — not just machines — smarter about what they think and do each day — at work and at home.

To achieve this, The World Excellence Project has developed and deployed a smart new App designed to make you smarter in the moment.

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…

The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th!

The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions.

There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year. But to do this, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.

We are all creatures of habit…

The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is well documented.

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

I always love to read this quote by Maya Angelou around the new year, as it sums up a hundred pages of thoughts in a single sentence, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Isn’t this what we all want?

A life filled with passion and purpose?

A life of compassion and hope?

To thrive with style?!

Of course it is!

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

The App Napoleon Hill Would Have Loved and Wanted You To Have!

In 1937, Dr. Napoleon Hill penned a book that would sell millions of copies and become the touchstone for self-improvement readers everywhere.

He titled it, Think and Grow Rich… a book designed to connect the dots between our imagination… our ideas… the thoughts we think… and our ultimate success in life.

Around the same time, a young scientist named Albert Einstein opined that, “Education is not merely the learning of facts. But rather, education is training the mind to think.”

WOW — what a great idea — a system to get us to think and grow rich.

Drive, for sure.

Working smarts?

Mastery of success-essential skills?

Always operates out of a higher sense of passion and purpose?

Is generous, appreciative and thankful for what they have now, not just in the pursuit of more?

Emotionally committed to helping others thrive?

Financial savvy?

A person who inspires hope in others… a powerful compassionate leader?

Of course, the list is endless… because our imaginations are boundless.

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity…

When we created Success on Purpose the idea of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction in life was a big question mark.

We see the finding authenticity to be a connection issue.

Connection with your VALUES…

Connection with your VISION…

Connection with your ROLES…

If you live your values while pursuing your visions in all the various areas of your life, you have Authentic Direction.

If you live someone else’s vision… or someone else’s values… you will certainly have problems in finding Authentic Roles.

To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Greatness…

We all know that to achieve extraordinary results we must be absolutely committed to both, the big WHY behind our actions as well as the expected RESULTS.

Commitment is one of those giant words we see as instrumental to the pursuit of both success and happiness.

It is very much a “believing is seeing” issue.

In TQ-speak, commitment is the 5th C in the 6 C’s of success as found in Success On Purpose:
Clarity of VALUES leads to clarity of VISION…

Clarity of VISION leads to clarity of ROLES…

Clarity of ROLES leads to the absolute CONVICTION that what you are about to do is the RIGHT thing to be doing…

Which leads to the unconditional COMMITMENT to doing whatever is required to achieve the vision…

THINK about the word in context to the ever-changing story of your life.
