Ask Yourself 3 Little Questions In a Specific Order And You'll Completely Change Your Life



What Worked, What Didn't, What's Next?

One of the common denominators of successful people is their ability to persevere when things don't go as planned. Effective people don't allow themselves to get bogged down in feelings that don't serve their purpose.

On the other hand, ineffective, unsuccessful people allow their emotions to rule rather than their rational and objective nature. They lament what happened or what didn't and become victims rather than masters of their circumstances.

We all have disappointments. We all suffer setbacks. If we're going to attempt anything worthwhile, we're going to experience failure. The mature—and ultimately successful person—sees failure as part of success. When one method fails, they try again with a new one. Sometimes it takes many attempts.

Forget New Year's Resolutions - They Don't Work

You can forget about making New Year's Resolutions if you're hoping for a successful outcome. Most aren't worth the paper they're written on.
No less than Mark Twain has written of New Year's Resolutions, "Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink, and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever."
The biggest majority of New Year's Resolutions have gone by the wayside before January is over and most won't even be remembered six months later. And the reason is pretty simple: Most are made in response to something negative -- a habit or situation that the person wants to change or end. And therein lies the problem - it's hard to develop momentum from a negative response. It is always easier to move toward something rather than away from something.

The Power of Writing a Statement of Intention


I consider that an important principle of empowerment is to identify an intention; a technique related to that principle is to write down the statement of intention.  I consciously use the principle of intention in all aspects of my work, and express intention frequently with my

clients. I also advocate writing down a

statement of intention in certain situations.


Setting Personal Goals - Why? - Because you have ‘gone public’ and you do not want to lose face or have to answer questions about what happened to that lofty goal of becoming first in your graduating class.  Studies prove that public goals create more positive forward pressure. Having said that, there are times when you might NOT want to announce your goals to the world.  Choose whom you tell, when you tell, IF you tell!  And do so, consciously!



Singular Success Method

If you have tried those weight loss programs where you have to keep to a strict eating plan and follow a particular exercise regime you may have found it a bit of a struggle to keep going.
Chances are you gave up after a few weeks or even a few days.  When we start out full of enthusiasm it's difficult to see the sheer effort that it will take to keep going when the novelty has worn off, it's a wet Tuesday In February and we're just plain tired of it all.
Some people do manage to makeover their lives overnight. It's fantastic if you have the willpower and determination to achieve this but most of us can't handle that much disruption to our lives all at once. We are already struggling to keep up with all we have to do each day.
So what do you do if you know your willpower is likely to give up on you when the going gets tough?
Try the Singular Success Method!


A Simple Technique to Get into Abundance - NOW

It happens to everyone. It's one of those days where everything feels blocked, you're frustrated and the dread creeps in because your financial flow feels like it is stuck. You desperately search high and low for any ways to get the cash flow up but it seems to have disappeared. What do you do now?


Brain Science and new Years Resolutions

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said, "I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacations with better care than they plan their lives. Perhaps it's because escape is easier than change."


Success psychologists say that 95% - 97% of the people in the world do NOT have written goals and fail, while 3-5% have written goals and succeed.

If these statistics are correct, then Mr Rohn's observation really IS quite fascinating isn't it?

Unfortunately for most people, the odds for success are actually even lower, because out of the few people who do set goals, most don't take goal setting seriously, they don't do it scientifically and they only do it once a year.

Goal setting is so important, that I always teach goal setting and mind dynamics first, and only THEN, do I teach nutrition and training second.


Creating a Life Mission Statement

Much like a corporate mission statement, your personal mission statement defines who you are, what you’re all about, and why you’re on this earth. Why do you need a personal mission statement?

·        It helps you make difficult decisions when faced with the myriad of choices life presents.

·        It helps you realize how very little time you truly have to accomplish the important things in your life.

·        It helps you recognize when you’re off course and steers you back in the right direction.

Set realistic goals

The lesson here is to continue to dream big dreams, but realize that the short-term goals that take you to the next plateau are the real keys to success.

The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.

Creative Goal Setting for kids and teens

An Indian guide who displayed uncanny skills in navigating the rugged regions of the Southwest was asked how he did it. "What is your secret of being an expert tracker and trail-blazer?" a visitor asked him.
The guide answered: "There is no secret. One must only possess the far vision and the near look. The first step is to determine where you want to go. Then you must be sure that each step you take is a step in that direction."
A dream is what you would like for life to be. A Goal is what you intend to make happen. A goal is the near look; what, specifically, you intend to do on a daily basis to get there.

Don't fall into the ‘Superwoman' Syndrome.  Have more time, more energy and more fun in your life. Here's how.


Do Your Goals Have Enough Gravity?G

Big goals are not only more fun and exciting; they carry more weight than small ones. Ambitious, serious, “weighty goals” have attraction power.

They attract others into the process and magnetize ideas and resources. Big goals pull you along. They pull you through the difficult times and help you remain diligent. They inspire you to greater innovation and effective action.
