I met a friend’s husband a while back and we got to talking. Through the discussion, we started talking about success and failure… a passionate topic for me. As we discussed our views, he made an outstanding comment that has a lot of interesting truth in it. He said, “You only have one chance to […]

March 31, 2011 1 Comment

Often people say that you need to be centered.  That you need to find your center. I won’t disagree with that but I will add a slightly different point of view.  While you need to be centered and know who it is that you are as a leader, business leader, or personal and professional person.  You […]

December 14, 2010 0 Comments

Here’s an interesting problem…. It’s a variation of the “if a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound?”  Does someone become a writer only after someone starts reading their material.  And, more specifically for people in my business, if no one actually follows the models and systems that you write about, are […]

It’s true. Hesitation does hurt. Think of all the times that you have hesitated and lost. Perhaps it was a job opening, an exam answer, a new relationship or even that last piece of cake.  It all counts and it all hurts when the only thing holding you back from having made it was […]

Modelling, The Unwilling & Courage

Found some interesting notes of mine that must have been sitting around for a couple of years.  They were only a few short lines on a small piece of paper but they spoke a truth that can help anyone who doesn’t know how to do something.  In fact, the notes are so basic that they could […]

SNAP – The Sound of a Habit Breaking

September 21, 2009 0 Comments

I was listening to an “expert” in the personal performance field talk about habits the other day.  It was interesting.  Didn’t agree with all that she had to say but it did get me thinking about habits some more.  I’ve thought about and researched this area about as much as anyone, I guess.  And, I’ve […]

Just attended a convention for my profession – professional speaking. It’s a convention in the United States that I go to each year and it brings together a lot of my colleagues — 1500-2000 of us.

June 25, 2009 0 Comments

Okay, I love science and research.  It has its time and place.  But, this example is both fascinating, wierd and yet very entertaining. Scientists stumbled across an interesting scientific question on YouTube and then they proceeded to study it on Youtube.  This is not a joke and has provided some very interesting results, but like […]
