“There are two types of leaders:
those who wait for the future, and those who create it.”
The Extraordinary Leaders Seminar - Be Extraordinary.™
- Finding Motivation: What To Do When You Don't Feel Like Doing Anything
In all of my interactions with people, I've never found anyone, regardless of their level of success, who doesn't sometimes find themselves simply not wanting to do the things that they need and want to do. It is a part of human nature that there will be times that, in spite of all that we need to do, and even desire to, we will find ourselves not wanting to do anything.
- Get Your Goals - Guaranteed
‘Goals’ is a topic that many people talk about, both in a positive as well as a negative sense. Some people are goal maniacs and others think they are a waste of time. Me? I am somewhat different. I just care about one thing — results. Goals: write ’em down; don’t write ’em down, I don’t care. Just get them! Achieve them! Live them! That is the only thing that should matter about goals, right?
- Take Yourself to the Top
Everybody wants to get to the top, whether it is the top of a career, a company, the earnings scale, or the many other ways that we as individuals can define the ’top’ in our own lives! But with so many people trying to get to the top, how come so many people aren’t moving up? I think there are some fundamental reasons why. Reasons that can be addressed and changed!
- Make Greatness Your Goal!
If greatness is your goal, whether in your business life, your personal relationships or your own personal growth, here are some guidelines to get you on your way. Greatness is possible! You can achieve the goals you set for yourself and you can make a difference in your own life and those who live and work around you! Set greatness as your goal!
- Leadership Prep
So you want to be a leader? Or you want to be a better leader? It can be done, you know. No matter where you are in your leadership journey, you CAN move forward. You CAN lead better. You CAN lead more people. You CAN lead your organization to higher ground. Yes, you CAN!
- What Motivates the Motivator?
. . . I realized again just how simple life can be if you put the right processes in place. I realized that me staying motivated revolves around a few basic things that I do.
- When the Door of Opportunity Opens
Anybody can achieve anything. Do you believe that? I do. But there is a caveat that must be made. Those who succeed are those who walk through the door of opportunity when it swings open. That we know. But what is the secret to getting through the door of opportunity?
- 10 Things I Wish I Would Have Known Before I Went Into The Real World
I must confess, I laughed when I saw that Maria Shriver has come out with a book called, “Ten Things I Wish I Had Known Before Going Into The Real World.” The real world? Come on, she grew up a Kennedy and married the biggest action movie star of all time! That aside, it got me to thinking: What are ten things I wish I would have known before going out into the real world? So, here they are. . .
- Why Get Rich When You Can Be Wealthy?
Getting rich is the main goal for a lot of people. That is unfortunate however, because there is something so much greater than simply the accumulation of money. Now don’t get me wrong — I am not saying people shouldn’t have large sums of money. In fact, I believe greatly in the power of money for good when in the hands of the right people. I think money is simply a tool that people can use to do great things — or bad things.
- Observing Successful People
A good friend of mine bought, virtually on a whim, a new, nearly $3,000,000 home. I didn’t even know he had purchased it. They were ’keeping it a secret.’ Then he invited me over to play pool, billiards if you will, which we do quite regularly. But, of course he had to give me the new address.
