Define Success on Your Own Terms

“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” | Ayn Rand

We sometimes become confused about whose life we are living. Our own? Our parents? Our friends? Sometimes it seems like everyone else’s life but our own.

Keep Your Actions Aligned with Your Vaules

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.” - Albert Einstein

Live Your Life with a Purpose and Passion

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” | G.K. Chesterton

Make Your Morning Routine Powerful

“Each morning is a fresh beginning. We are, as it were, just beginning life. We have it entirely in our own hands. And when the morning with its fresh beginning comes, all yesterdays should be yesterdays, with which we have nothing to do. Sufficient is it to know that the way we lived our yesterday has determined for us our today. And, again, when the morning with its fresh beginning comes, all tomorrows should be tomorrows, with which we have nothing to do. Sufficient to know that the way we live our today determines our tomorrow.” | Ralph Waldo Trine


“Stop Selling. Start Helping.” | Zig Ziglar

We live in a world where it has never been easier to stay connected, so developing the habit of becoming a value-added networker is critically important as you build your career, family and business.

Learn to Sell

“Remember, people don’t buy for logical reasons. They buy for emotional reasons.” | Zig Ziglar

Every single person needs to know how to sell. If you doubt me, consider the following situations:

The child wants cookies, so she needs to sell her parents and convince them to give her cookies. The sales pitch is usually pointing at the cookie jar, screaming to get attention (constant promotion) and not stopping until she gets the cookie (closing)!


“Few things can help an individual more than to place responsibility on him, and to let him know that you trust him.” | Booker T. Washington

Great leaders know that significant accomplishments require exceptional teams. In business, we often talk about the importance of teams, but we don’t always take the time necessary to truly plan an effective team.

How to Build a World-Class Team:

Understand the Risks and Mitigate Them

“Experience is a truer guide than the words of others.” | Leonardo da Vinci

There is no such thing as risk-free living, but if you follow the principles of The 1% Solution, you can reduce risk and improve your probability of success.

If you are about to embark on a certain project or a venture, list all the significant risks associated with that project. For most projects, whether it is professional or personal, there are usually about five to
10 risks in the medium-to-significant range, with only one or two being the most significant risks.

Focus on Your Strengths, but Know Your Weaknesses

“You can journey to the ends of the earth in search of success, but if you’re lucky, you will discover happiness in your own backyard.” | Russell H. Conwell

Forget Multitasking - Focus!

“Concentrate all your efforts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn through until brought into focus.” | Alexander Graham Bell

We are inundated by numerous tasks throughout the day, big and small, important and non-important, urgent and non-urgent. Some are our own priorities, while many are the priorities of others. We can easily become overwhelmed by these tasks and risk becoming ineffective or stressed, and make mistakes. Many of these tasks contribute very little toward our achievement of big goals.
