“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” ~ Audrey Hepburn Kindness Shows True Strength… So many people equate kindness with weakness. In truth, being kind is a statement of unique strength. Angry […]
“Every day we have plenty of opportunities to get angry, stressed or offended. But what you’re doing when you indulge these negative emotions is giving something outside yourself power over your happiness. You can choose to not let little things upset you.” ~ Joel Osteen The Power to Be Yourself… When we think of […]
Yes, you CAN have it all…
Look at the calendar.
Look at your life.
Is this where you thought you would be after 10-20-30 years of hard work?
You dreamed of being rich one day. Are you?
You dreamed you would be happy by now… that you would catch that gold ring and make it yours. Did you?
Interesting questions, aren’t they? Probing. Provocative.
They get to the reality of it, don’t they?
Last week we discussed the difference between hopes and wishes vs. crystal-clear EXPECTATIONS.
As I pointed out all week, what you have the RIGHT to expect is based on four Colors within your personal Time Prism:
Your sense of purpose and MISSION… your ATTITUDE… your ability to set Smart GOALS… and your ability to establish realistic PLANS to achieve your goals.
The Next Step Upward…
We all have mountains to climb, some tall, some scary.
The great news is that as we approach the summit of one, we see others off in the distance.
So, we set our sights upward, towards bigger, better and bolder goals.
If you want to make the ascent to the top of your career… the top financially… the top personally and professionally…
why not get a little help to make the climb easier and a great deal more enjoyable?
Last week we discussed how to turn ever-present opportunities into tangible results.
This week we are going to discuss achieving greater results—in every area of your life.
From now until the end of the year we will be focusing on increasing your POWER to SET and ACHIEVE tremendously BRILLIANT goals for yourself—both personally and professionally.
Without question, your natural creativity is your MOST important asset and is responsible for everything good in your life.
The simple fact is, everyone, is NATURALLY CREATIVE… but most people (over 90%) are not using their most basic gifts and talents…
So they unwittingly work AGAINST themselves rather than put their innate creativity to work FOR them.
People have the wrong impression on what it means to be creative.
People think it is others who are naturally creative and don’t realize they too have an inner-creative genius driving their imagination.
For the last month, we have been talking about very broad topics: Hope… Freedom… Purpose… Values… Success (and what it takes to ACHIEVE it… and be HAPPY along the way.)
No doubt, we have asked — and answered — the questions that lead to a life of passion, purpose, and significance.
This week, we will narrow our focus to you personally, and what it takes to WIN at what you do.
No “top of the funnel” thinking here… just real CLEAR advice on what it takes to unleash the winner within you.
How Mindfulness Creates Hope…
If you have been following along with The Time Prism each day, you are not just receiving a flood of great ideas… you are becoming more MINDFUL.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and the surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.
Last week, we talked about hope and freedom, and your God-given right to pursue your dreams with passion, power, and persistence.
This week, we will discuss the foundation of ALL success—your personal values.
Each day you spend the only life you have to live. The question is, what are you getting in return?
Are you living with a strong sense of purpose and MISSION… or are you struggling to find balance and direction?
All you need to do is armor up, step up, and slay them.
Which, of course, is much easier said than done!
When we were crafting The Excellence Habit, it became obvious to us that there are powerful inward forces holding people back from high achievement.
Huge, scary, fire-breathing dragons that cause us to shrink from the fray, run and hide while we wait until the time is just right to pursue our goals.
This week we are going to talk about the power of cumulative action—keeping your dreams alive and well by giving them the attention they so richly deserve…
By taking a successive series of small steps in the direction of your dreams.
The attention your dreams seek is ACTION.
They cry out for ACTION.
Is taking bold action a problem for you?
There are many ways to look at a word like happiness.
An inner-emotion of pure joy…
The achievement of a major challenge…
Or simply just doing more of what comes naturally to you.
Most people would agree that happiness is up to the individual to define.
“You’ll know it when you see it”, kind of thing.
Three Big Clues…
So often we get caught up in doing what we have always done, we quite literally, cannot see the forest for the trees.
Today, I just want to take you back to the basics.
If there are things you want and have not yet attained… regardless of what it is… the reason is actually quite simple.
You lack the DESIRE. Sure, you might tell yourself you want to be financially free, have a second home on the ocean, a beautiful yacht, travel 4 months out of the year to exotic locations, or write that book you have always known is within you.
Mental Toughness Begins Here…
“If you can THINK in front of a tiger, you will surely succeed.”
This has been one of my most favorite quotes!
Our new Time Prism trains you to THINK. It’s the constant mentor that causes you to pause for a few seconds… grab an Idea Seed… BREATHE… and take 10 seconds to just THINK.
BUT it is hard to stop the world’s excessive NOISE and learn to THINK in front of…
