The Goals Habit…

The Goals Habit…

Making Goals a Habit…

SET GOALS is the fourth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum, because you can’t make the leap from here to your vision, all in one jump. You can’t just “do” a mission. You need specific, tangible targets to give you immediate direction — ones which will lead thereafter to even greater destinations.

When you set specific GOALS, you target future accomplishments with precision and clarity. The first step in getting “EVERYTHING” you want is to specify exactly what “EVERYTHING” is.

A habit, of course, is something you do automatically, intuitively, or instinctively.

Honor Is a Driving Force of Success

Honor Is a Driving Force of Success

To understand why HONOR is critical to your success, click play on the Smarter in a Minute clip above  >> take a breath  >> and THINK >>

When we think of a giant word like excellence we generally see it through the lens of quality or worth.

Like excellence, a lack of honor drives you further away from the life you love.

A life of high worth and achievement.

According to the urban dictionary, Honor has many uses, all of them good. If you are called a man of honor, you are respected. If someone honors you, they recognize and award you for your achievements.

Leadership & Vision Go Together Like Ham & Eggs

Leadership & Vision Go Together Like Ham & Eggs

The only true gift a leader must possess is vision.

One of my best friends is a man who is considered a Christian Statesman, Sir John Edmund Haggai.

Author of numerous books on leadership, this single quote has stuck with me for my entire career…

“The leader seeks to communicate his vision to his followers. He captures their attention with his optimistic intuition of possible solutions to their needs. He influences them by the dynamism of his faith. He demonstrates confidence that the challenge can be met, the need resolved, the crisis overcome.”

Parsing this out, you quickly get the idea that…

Crazy? Great!

Crazy? Great!

When I was completing Think TQ & Grow Rich, I looked back at all the wisdom of the ages and came to this conclusion.

The people who made it over the years were all considered nuts by their friends, families, bosses, coworkers, everyone who they came into contact with.

Napoleon Hill documented this perfectly in his Think and Grow Rich book of the late 1930s. Then, it was about stuff like automobiles, radio, TV, phones, etc.

Decades later, my dear friend Robert Schuller wrote a book on a very crazy topic: Possibility Thinking.

Will Artificial Intelligence be Your Friend or Foe?

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.

It’s Time to LOVE Your Life…

It’s Time to LOVE Your Life…

Life is not an endurance test… or a problem to be solved.

Life is an adventure of challenges, hopes, and dreams to be lived to the max.

It doesn’t take years to find the life you love, it takes just a few hours.

It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

What If???

As we close out 2018 and look forward to 2019, it’s a great time to take inventory of how far we’ve come, and where we want to go in 2019.

Many of us had a wonderful year, full of opportunities, challenges and positive results.

Some had real problems, professionally, emotionally and financially.

Regardless, it’s time to stop for a moment and ask the BIG question… “What If?”

What if I had worked a bit smarter… how much further down the line would I be?

What if I had stopped long enough to THINK a bit more each day… what opportunities would I have been able to seize?

What if I had taken time more seriously… what could I have accomplished?

From Struggling SOHO to Entrepreneurial Success

From Struggling SOHO to Entrepreneurial Success

The Business Dream…

Please take a moment to THINK about your business goals.

Maybe you are a SOHO (Small Office Home Office) dreamer.

Maybe you have grown to experience the joys of a rapidly expanding enterprise.

Or maybe you have just passed the big hurdle moving from basic subsistence to full sustainability.

What now?

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.

If your business is a rising star, you know the power of hyper-fast innovation… and have mastered the leadership skills required for hyper-growth.

If you business is more of a problem child, you will benefit from this thinking.

Winning In Business is a Street-Smart Affair…

Street-Smarts Rule…

It takes all kind of smarts to make the world go around.

Here’s an observation from J. B. Smoove…

“There’s book smart, there is street smart, there’s relationship smart, there’s too many different kinds of smarts to know all of them. Everybody doesn’t know every kind of smart. There’s money smart, there’s movie smart, there’s computer smart. There’s just too many different kinds of smarts for people to know all the smarts.”

I have always loved the above quote from Warren Buffett, the most successful investor in history.

All businesses present their own unique challenges.

Some are quick and easy fixes.

Some require time and money.

Some are not worth the trouble keeping alive.

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?

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.

Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.

In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward.

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.
