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!

Emotional Freedom: Life is Good…

Emotional Freedom: Life is Good…

Accept Thy Self: Heal Thy Self…

When you do, you earn the freedom to pursue your dreams to the full extent possible!

All of our hopes and dreams begin in our imagination.

What we call our Someday Dreams in Success On Purpose…

Someday I will go to Alaska…

Someday I will learn to play the piano…

Someday I will be married to a wonderful, warm and loving person…

Someday my family will enjoy the fruits of all my hopes and dreams.

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

Fairness Is Your Super-Power

Fairness…

We all  want to get ahead.

That is a given.

We also want to get ahead on a playing field that is inherently just and fair.

Hence our continued struggle to field our dreams against the backdrop of an inherently unjust and unfair world.

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 Thoughts…

Leadership…

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…

Most of us will also have a future beyond today!

Past hurts…

Past failures…

Afraid to proceed?

Today’s TQ is all about managing FEAR… Afraid to proceed? Pin down exactly what scares you. The more precise you are, the clearer you can see your fear. Often the light of day will simply cause your fear to vanish. Isolate each fear. See it for what it is. Then take a specific action that […]

There is a problem in every opportunity and an opportunity in every problem.

There is a problem in every opportunity and an opportunity in every problem.

Nothing will torpedo your chance at success faster than a poor attitude.

You can have clear and tangible goals, with the best-laid plans in the world, but if you poison the well from which opportunity springs, you’ve just killed your future.

You will never excel until you connect your actions to something you truly value.

This week, we will be getting VERY personal… asking the truly IMPORTANT questions:

Are you actually LIVING what you say you value, or are you consumed by the moment…
with no forward movement in the direction of your dreams?

The importance of knowing what you value more than something else is critical to your day-to-day performance.

Courage On Demand

Courage On Demand

When we speak of courage, it is almost always in context with major, life changing/ending events such as impulsively walking into a burning building to rescue a frightened child, or jumping into a raging river to save the life of a complete stranger.

Clearly, these are acts of heroism and courage. They are what I like to call “Situational Courage.”
