To be successful and a happy person you must be able to define what you really want. Easier said than done I know that. You must have a dream (a goal) if you expect it to come true. If you don’t have one how can you expect it to come true? You must really do some soul searching and figure out what is important to you that you are willing to pursue to the moon and back. When you find things that are taking you away from your true goal you need the strength to pull away from them and stay on track to pursuing your number one goal.

I hate to say this but don’t let yourself fall into settling if something else comes up that sounds good or may pay you a little more don’t let it sway you. If it is not going to move you forward toward your number one goal. Just Say NO!

Know what you want. If you don’t clarify what it is you desire you may be chasing the wrong dream. You may think it is money you want but when you get it you’re not happy. You may think it is a fancy new sports car but that’s not it either. How about fame your name in lights, or a book author. If you don’t have anyone to share this success with is it really what you thought it would be.

This is why it is so very important to try to figure out:

  • exactly what it is you want
  • and why it is important to you
  • and how it will impact your life once you attain it

Now is the time for you to start making the proper decisions that will enable you to lead a very happy, fulfilling and prosperous life.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

If you want to Dare To Soar and move on to better things, you have to give up the things that weigh you down – which is not always as obvious and easy as it sounds.

Starting today, give up…

  1. Letting the opinions of others control your life. – People know your name, not your story. They’ve heard what you’ve done, but not what you’ve been through. So take their opinions of you with a grain of salt. In the end, it’s not what others think, it’s what you think about yourself that counts. Sometimes you have to do exactly what’s best for you and your life, not what’s best for everyone else.
  2. The shame of past failures. – You will fail sometimes, and that’s okay. The faster you accept this, the faster you can get on with being brilliant. Your past does not equal your future. Just because you failed yesterday; or all day today; or a moment ago; or for the last six months; or for the last sixteen years, doesn’t have any impact on the current moment. All that matters is what you do right now. Read Awaken the Giant Within.
  3. Being indecisive about what you want. – You will never leave where you are until you decide where you would rather be. It’s all about finding and pursuing your passion. Neglecting passion blocks creative flow. When you’re passionate, you’re energized. Likewise, when you lack passion, your energy is low and unproductive. Energy is everything when it comes to being successful. Make a decision to figure out what you want, and then pursue it passionately.
  4. Procrastinating on the goals that matter to you. – There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them. Follow your intuition. Don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. When there is love and inspiration, you can’t go wrong. And whatever it is you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows. Trust me, in a year from now, you will wish you had started today.
  5. Choosing to do nothing. – You don’t get to choose how you are going to die, or when. You can only decide how you are going to live, right now. Every day is a new chance to choose. Choose to change your perspective. Choose to flip the switch in your mind from negative to positive. Choose to turn on the light and stop fretting about with insecurity and doubt. Choose to do work that you are proud of. Choose to see the best in others, and to show your best to others. Choose to truly LIVE, right now.
  6. Your need to be right. – If you keep on saying you’re right, even if you are right now, eventually you will be wrong. Aim for success, but never give up your right to be wrong. Because when you do, you will also lose your ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  7. Running from problems that should be fixed. – We make life harder than it has to be. The difficulties started when… conversations became texting, feelings became subliminal, sex became a game, the word ‘love’ fell out of context, trust faded as honesty waned, insecurities became a way of living, jealously became a habit, being hurt started to feel natural, and running away from it all became our solution. Stop running! Face these issues, fix the problems, communicate, appreciate, forgive and LOVE the people in your life who deserve it.
  8. Making excuses rather than decisions. – Life is a continuous exercise in creative problem solving. A mistake doesn’t become a failure until you refuse to correct it. Thus, most long-term failures are the outcome of people who make excuses instead of decisions.
  9. Overlooking the positive points in your life. – What you see often depends entirely on what you’re looking for. Do your best and surrender the rest. When you stay stuck in regret of the life you think you should have had, you end up missing the beauty of what you do have. You will have a hard time ever being happy if you aren’t thankful for the good things in your life right now.
  10. Not appreciating the present moment. – We do not remember days, we remember moments. Too often we try to accomplish something big without realizing that the greatest part of life is made up of the little things. Live authentically and cherish each precious moment of your journey. Because when you finally arrive at your desired destination, I guarantee you, another journey will begin. (Marc & Angel Chernoff)

W. Clement Stone, co-founder with Napoleon Hill of the magazine, “success Unlimited” (Success), defines success as follows:

“Success is getting what you want out of life, without infringing on the rights of others.”

I made a nice framed plaque with this definition of success which now hangs in my office. The inspiration this definition provides me is twofold.

First, it constantly reminds me that success is becoming the person I want to be and achieving the things in   life I want to achieve.

Secondly, it also reminds me that success must be achieved without infringing on the rights of others. SUCCESS WITH INTEGRITY – that is the real challenge of life.

This puts the concept of success on a very personal basis. It is getting what you want out of life, whether it be in business, job, marriage, personal dreams, desires and goals, or any other area of accomplishment you want.

An Unbeatable Combination when you combine this concept of success with the following Principles of Success:

  • Everyone has the potential for success.
  • Strong desire and strong determination are essential ingredients of success.
  • Believe in yourself, that you can achieve success, and you will.
  • You must be in control of yourself and your environment to succeed.
  • You can create your opportunities.
  • Your ability to visualize your dreams, desires and goals will determine your level of success.
  • You must make the decision to act, then act to realize your dreams, desires and goals.
  • Utilize the subconscious mind to achieve success.
  • Lasting success can only be achieved with integrity.
  • Achieving success is based on a learnable body of knowledge and concepts which can be applied to achieve success.
  • You are the only limitation to your success.

It is not necessary that all of the Principles of Success be present for you to achieve success. But by having more will definitely increase your chances.

Remember:

  • You can be a success.
  • You can get whatever you want out of life.
  • You must do it with integrity.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

We all have low points when we hate our place in the world:

  • Your business may not provide the challenge it once did.
  • You have put on weight and you don’t like how you look or feel.
  • This list could go on and on.

It is during these times that we long to remember the simpler times/pleasures and what’s important to you. How can you recapture your passion for life?

Are you in search of or desire to find a mission or a task so engaging that will put that passion back into your life?

What you may need is to develop A Life Mission or Vision Statement. Which can include:

  • A life purpose – why you exist
  • A calling – what you do
  • A vision – a mental picture of what you want to happen
  • A mission – how you will go about it.

First you need to evaluate your life up to this point. Reflect on your past and write down (there is something about writing down information {don’t type} that really lets you understand yourself) where you are now sort of a life’s biography.  Some of the items you may want to look at are:

  • Your overall satisfaction
  • Milestones
  • Major goals, met and unmet
  • Significant achievements
  • Priorities
  • Failures and lessons learned
  • Regrets and thing you want to improve
  • Dreams met and unmet
  • Fears, doubts, pressures, and concerns about the past, present and future

Please don’t beat yourself up this is not a pity party, be humble, but don’t sell yourself short. Use the 80/20 rule – 80% of the space for positive reflections and 20% for improvement areas.

Okay, it’s time to go to work assess your current life’s situation.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

For years, I used to compare myself to people who were farther ahead than me. It was painful and crippling.

I always imagined those “successful people” had tons of things I didn’t. Things like…

A light filled office, a big staff, huge financial resources and an ability to focus that just wasn’t a part of my ADD brain.

Can you relate?

Thankfully, I had a wake-up call.

Once I stopped getting lost in what I call “comparison hangovers” and actually rolled up my sleeves and started taking consistent action, I realized something big.

All my imaginary thoughts about what “successful people” had that I didn’t were total B.S.

That’s right. They were excuses.

Lame excuses. Limiting beliefs that kept me small, struggling and mediocre.

The thing I failed to realize was that in reality, I had everything I needed to pull myself up and succeed.

I had drive. I had heart. I had the willingness to commit, learn new things and work hard.

And I truly believe it’s the same for you.

You are capable of reaching your full potential, right now.

Doesn’t matter how much time, money, experience, or anything else that you feel you may lack — I’m 1000% certain that you were born with everything you need to answer the call of your soul.

What truly holds most of us back are our excuses. Excuses are like prison bars that keeps us confined.

Let’s dive right into some of the most common excuses I hear – and well, also excuses that I make sometimes.

1.     I Don’t Really Need To Do It Right Now

When we make this excuse, what we’re really saying is – I don’t want to do this, and I’m secretly hoping that it’ll either go away, or I’ll eventually feel motivated to actually do it.

2.     I’ll Start After – Sound familiar?

I’ll start-

  • right after I do the dishes
  • right after I clean my desk
  • right after I make one last phone call

3.     It’s Not The Right Time

You know, sometimes it really isn’t the right time. More often than not though, it’s just an excuse because it’ll never be the right time.

4.     It’s Not Really That Important

Our goals and dreams either matter to us – or they don’t. Too often, people start down a path on a dream that was truly important to them – and then get stuck. They get bogged down. Eventually, perhaps due to fear of failure, perhaps laziness, or just plain unpleasant tasks, we rationalize that our goals were not really that important – and put them off.

5.     I Don’t Have Enough Information To Start

Gathering information, without actually putting any of it to use is just entertainment masquerading as planning.

6.     Something Came Up

Sometimes this is a legitimate excuse. Many times though, this is just a convenient scape goat we use when we’ve perhaps gotten to a point where we’d like an easy way to toss a project on the back burner – perhaps indefinitely.

7.     I’ve Got Too Much Else To Do Right Now

This is one of the sneakiest, most dangerous excuse traps we fall into. We get busier and busier, and then one day we put off working on an important task or goal. That one day turns into two days, into weeks, months – and even years. We sit around waiting for the mythical someday problem with this excuse is that it’s almost guaranteed that your mythical someday will never come.

Take a look at why you’re busy and ask yourself – are you doing some things that are not as important to you as the goals you’d like to work on? Is it possible that perhaps fear of failure is causing you to use these lower value tasks as an excuse to put off what matters most to you?

And if you truly do have a lot of little things that you have to do all the time, perhaps it’s an issue of prioritizing – and you’ve got to separate the urgent from the important.

I believe every one of us deserves a chance to live our dreams – regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, economics or any other way we like to categorize or label ourselves. So please take a deep look at yourself and stop making excuses and get on with following your dream.

Here’s To Your $uccess,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

Here is an encouraging fact. Believe it! You can be free from unproductive habits. You can develop productive producing habits.

I was told by a much wiser man that in the process of welding, where two pieces of metal are united by intense heat, the point at which the welding takes place is stronger than the original metal pieces. Two boards cut in half, the grains reversed, when glued together become stronger than the original. Yes this wiser man was my Dad, (Thanks Dad). Similarly if you substitute good habits for bad, you can be “strong at the broken places.”

What are unproductive habits? There are many:

  • Worry
  • Tension
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Ill will
  • Resentment
  • Procrastination
  • Overeating
  • Lack of exercise, just to name a few.

Whatever habits you have developed over the years that detract from your best productive interests can be overcome. It has been said that anything you do consistently for thirty days straight will take you far along the way to breaking a habit. And if you do it for six months, the habit will be completely gone.

So a way to break a habit is to substitute something good in its place. Then practice using the good habit every time the urge for the bad habit emerges. Do that for six months until the good habit has completely replaced the old one.

A habit is an acquired tendency which becomes strong from repetition. This means you can be the master of your life’s habits, discarding the bad and selecting the good. If you want to eliminate a bad habit or acquire a good one, you must understand that habits are not inherited, they take hold through repetition. And they can be broken by breaking the chain of repetition. You being a wise person must be very discriminating in the kind of habits you allow to be formed in your life.

Replace bad habits with good habits to increase the productive-fullness of your life.

Here’s To Your $uccess,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

How often do you try to do more than one thing at a time? When you do too many things at once, it’s impossible to be present-moment oriented. You not only lose out on much of the enjoyment of what you are doing, but you also become less focused and effective.

Do you try to do more than one thing at once? Below are some examples of multitasking are any of these statements true for you?

  • I try to get my coffee brewing while I’m in the shower
  • I get a head start by making calls on my cell while driving to work
  • I usually drink my first cup of coffee while getting dressed in the morning
  • I read the paper while waiting at a stop light
  • I put on my makeup while driving to work
  • I listen to music or talk radio while working at my desk
  • While I’m at home the TV is always on-no matter what I’m doing
  • I talk to friends on the phone while doing household chores
  • While exercising I like to watch TV or listen to music
  • I always have my cell phone with me even during a movie date
  • It is hard to get any work done I am always getting phone calls
  • While watching TV at night, I pay my bills, knit, or do crossword puzzles
  • Before going to sleep, I read watch the news, or listen to the radio at the same time
  1.  If 5 or less of these apply to you you’re about average. And you may be losing out on the enjoyment of what you are doing.
  2.  If 5-8 of the statements apply to you you’re probably less focused and less effective than you could be.

-What are a few things you could do to enhance your concentration?

-What are some things that might help you to be more present in what       you’re doing?

-Do you find that as you concentrate on just one thing, you enjoy it more? Why?

3.  If 9 or more statements apply to you you’re are not a present-moment oriented person.

-You might try blocking out periods of time when you commit to doing only one thing at a time. Ask yourself if you find yourself becoming more absorbed and interested in your activity when you are less distracted?

– Do you find that you get things done more quickly and efficiently when you only do one thing at a time?

For most of us it will not be easy to slow down and do one thing at a time. But with a little effort you will start to become more productive and start to really enjoy what you are doing.

Here’s To Your $uccess,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

“Our national talents and passions – the things we truly love to do – last for a lifetime. But all too often, our talents go untapped. Mark Twain once described a man who died and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. Knowing that Saint Peter was very wise, the man asked a question that he had wondered about throughout his life.

He said, Saint Peter, I have been interested in military history for many years. Who was the greatest general of all time?”

Saint Peter quickly responded, “Oh that’s a simple question. It’s that man over there.”

“You must be mistaken,” responded the man, now very perplexed. “I knew that man on earth, and he was just a common laborer.”

“That’s right my friend,” assured Saint Peter. “He would have been the greatest general of all time, if he had been a general.”

This story illustrates a truth that is, unfortunately, all too common. Far too many people spend a lifetime headed in the wrong direction. They go not only from the cradle to the cubicle, but then to the casket, without uncovering their greatest talents and potential.

This is why it’s essential to discover and develop your strengths as early as possible, like realizing that you are a natural at coming up with new ideas that could change the world around you.”

Reprinted – from “Strengths Finder 2.0” By Tom Rath

Remember every human being has talents that are just waiting to be uncovered.

Now it’s your turn to discover yours.

Welcome to another Time Diary day. I would like to start this post with a quote from Rasheed Ogunlaru – “When is the perfect time? Who can say, but probably somewhere between haste and delay – and it’s usually most wise to start today.” If you’re like most people filling out their time diary you are a little startled at where your finding your time is being spent. Frankly, I know I was when I first filled mine out. And for a real wakeup call try keeping a food diary not just a casual one but a diary of EVERYHING YOU PUT IN YOUR MOUTH but that’s another story.

Back to Procrastination, we do this without even noticing it sometimes, and the reason why we don’t take notice of it is because what we’re doing to procrastinate feels so much better than the option of actually doing what we need to do. All of us procrastinate from time to time, and one thing I’ve found that works for me is to do something, anything to get the ball rolling. I ask myself “What are the first steps I need to do to get this done?”, and then I force myself to do the first step, and then the second, etc. If there’s something I’ve been procrastinating on, I’ll also get all hard core and force myself to do it first thing in the morning, so I’m not dreading it all day. Some folks call this “doing fear things first”, and I’ve found that it’s also helpful at decreasing stress.

I would like to share an article with you How To Stop Procrasting By Using The “2- Minute Rule”

I’ve been following a simple rule that is helping me crush procrastination and making it easier for me to stick to good habits at the same time. I want to share it with you today so that you can try it out and see how it works in your life. The best part! It’s a simple strategy that couldn’t be easier to use.

Here”s what you need to know… How to Stop Procrastinating With the “2 Minute Rule” By James Clear

“I call this little strategy the “2–Minute Rule” and the goal is to make it easier for you to get started on the things you should be doing.

Here’s the deal…

Most of the tasks that you procrastinate on aren’t actually difficult to do — you have the talent and skills to accomplish them — you just avoid starting them for one reason or another.

The 2–Minute Rule overcomes procrastination and laziness by making it so easy to start taking action that you can’t say no.

There are two parts to the 2–Minute Rule…

  • Part 1 — If it takes less than two minutes, then do it now.

Part I comes from David Allen’s bestselling book, Getting Things Done.

It’s surprising how many things we put off that we could get done in two minutes or less. For example, washing your dishes immediately after your meal, tossing the laundry in the washing machine, taking out the garbage, cleaning up clutter, sending that email, and so on.

If a task takes less than two minutes to complete, then follow the rule and do it right now.

  • Part 2 — When you start a new habit, it should take less than two minutes to do.

Can all of your goals be accomplished in less than two minutes? Obviously not.

But, every goal can be started in 2 minutes or less. And that’s the purpose behind this little rule.

It might sound like this strategy is too basic for your grand life goals, but I beg to differ. It works for any goal because of one simple reason: the physics of real life.

The Physics of Real Life

As Sir Isaac Newton taught us a long time ago, objects at rest tend to stay at rest and objects in motion tend to stay in motion. This is just as true for humans as it is for falling apples.

The 2–Minute Rule works for big goals as well as small goals because of the inertia of life. Once you start doing something, it’s easier to continue doing it. I love the 2–Minute Rule because it embraces the idea that all sorts of good things happen once you get started.

Want to become a better writer? Just write one sentence (2–Minute Rule), and you’ll often find yourself writing for an hour.

Want to eat healthier? Just eat one piece of fruit (2–Minute Rule), and you’ll often find yourself inspired to make a healthy salad as well.

Want to make reading a habit? Just read the first page of a new book (2–Minute Rule), and before you know it, the first three chapters have flown by.

Want to run three times a week? Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, just get your running shoes on and get out the door (2–Minute Rule), and you’ll end up putting mileage on your legs instead of popcorn in your stomach.

The most important part of any new habit is getting started — not just the first time, but each time. It’s not about performance; it’s about consistently taking action. In many ways, getting started is more important than succeeding. This is especially true in the beginning because there will be plenty of time to improve your performance later on.

The 2–Minute Rule isn’t about the results you achieve, but rather about the process of actually doing the work. It works really well for people who believe that the system is more important than the goal. The focus is on taking action and letting things flow from there.”

Try It Now

I can’t guarantee whether or not the 2–Minute Rule will work for you. But, I can guarantee that it will never work if you never try it.

The problem with most articles you read, podcasts you listen to, or videos you watch is that you consume the information but never put it into practice.

I want this post to be different. I want you to actually use this information, right now.

What’s something you can do that will take you less than two minutes? Do it right now.

Anyone can spare the next 120 seconds. Use this time to get one thing done.

Keep working on your Time Diary and tune in for tomorrows post where we will be talking about another Time Waster –Thinking about unimportant things.

 Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry

Each of us has 24 hours a day, that is 1,440 minutes, and broken down even further into 86,400 seconds.

This short Video Uses Jelly Beans To Show You How Much Your Wasting Your Life (Video) http://elitedaily.com/life/motivation/this-video-uses-jelly-beans-show-you-how-much-youre-wasting-your-life-video/ via @EliteDaily

Now that I have your ATTENTION!

The first step is to gain an understanding of where your time goes.

Before you can organize your time, you must take an inventory of your time. By using the TIME DIARY (make a copy for each day of the week), record how you spend your time for a week, including Saturday and Sunday. Record both time on the job, if you work, and your personal time. The form provides for a full twenty-four hours. It starts at 12:00 noon (you record sleep time too). Maintain this time diary throughout the day. Make it as accurate and detailed as possible. Be specific on what you did, so you can evaluate how well you spent your time. This is very important, so stick with it.

You probably are saying one week if I had all that extra time to record what I am doing I could be doing what I want to do. Hey do me and yourself a favor suck it up and please take the time to record what you do. You can thank me later.

Falling down on this goal to complete your Time Diary can hit you where it hurts: Your Wallet. Set this one well-defined goal and create a plan of attack. People give up on vague goals. Narrow recording your time for the first hour, second hour etc.

Monitor your progress as you go stay focused and record your time. This is not to much to ask for something that will change your life.

Here’s To Your Success,

Until next time!

Prosperously yours,

Jerry
