You’re Selfish!

It’s true.  You’re selfish.  I’m selfish.  We’re all selfish.  And here’s 3 reasons why being selfish is actually a GOOD thing.   You see, multiple studies have shown us that altruistic acts and emotions actually increase our well-being, health and longevity.  So the more good you do for others, the better YOU feel.   Before we get too far, let’s define altruism.  According to Dictionary.com, altruism is the principle or practice of unselfish concern for or devotion to the welfare…

The Professional Procrastinator

Have you ever met a half-a-minder or a gonna doer? You know, the ones who say “I’ve got half a mind to do such and such” or “I’m gonna do [fill in the blank] later, or next week or…whenever.” They say such powerful words, but when you see them months later, they STILL haven’t done whatever it was they said they were going to do.   Larry Winget says one of the keys to success is doing what you say…

Reprogram Your Mind? Only If You Want A Better Life

You do the things you do, the way you do them because you were programmed to do them that way. No, I don’t mean that you’re some computer software that an engineer designed, so you perform whatever tasks programmed. At least, not exactly.   Let me explain.   Science tells us that our brains are not fully developed until about the age 25. Okay, that’s true. We all accept that. However, our sub-conscious closes much earlier.   You see, our…

FAITH—Believe and Succeed

There are 13 steps to manifesting anything you want in life.  Do you know what they are?  Well, in my last blog post we talked about DESIRE being the starting point of all achievement.  Today, we’re going to talk about FAITH. FAITH is the second step towards manifesting anything you want in life.  It doesn’t matter if it’s money, health, love, or material things.  Without FAITH, good luck manifesting anything.  But FAITH is a funny thing.  And it’s hard to…

Desire—The Starting Point For Manifesting The Life You Want

A mentor of mine told me “to get what you want, you have to DESERVE what you want.” That was a little fuzzy and kinda crass at first. But then he went on to explain that the person who wants six pack abs, but sits on the couch and eats potato chips doesn’t deserve six pack abs. Just like the person who wants a million dollars, but can’t save ten dollars doesn’t deserve a million dollars. Neither person will get…

The Story of the Apple Seed

In my opinion, nothing embodies the true meaning of persistence more than plants in their natural environment. Let’s take the apple seed for example. Did you know that it takes approximately eight years for an apple seed to grow into a full size fruit bearing tree (Almanac Staff, 2017)? That means that the seed will be in the ground for a LONG time before it ever bears fruit. Within that apple seed lies the potential to become a 20 foot…

Forgiveness and The Law of Attraction

In a society when forgiveness is rare, it’s important to note that forgiving is actually much easier and requires less effort than not forgiving. Allow me to explain. If you feel as though somebody wronged you in the past, maybe they stole money from you. Initially you’ll feel upset, angry or just plain hurt. However, the other person may feel nothing at all. The person who stole the money may have no feelings (good or bad) about the situation—that is…

But I can tell you, with absolute certainty, what the next five years of your life will look like by only asking you two questions.   1. What did the past five years of your life look like? 2. Would you please let me read your written description of your future self?   Question…

When you’re at work, work. And when you’re at play, play. We’ve all heard that before right? But when is the best time to produce? You know, when should you start your work day? Or start writing that blog post? Or when should you edit your podcast? Well, if you’re an entrepreneur you really don’t have a 9-5 job. So the best time to produce is really up to you.
