Week 1

Day 1: Monitor Your Thoughts and Words. You'll be amazed at the thoughts that pop into your head.

Day 2: Make a Gratitude List. Write a list of the things you are thankful for. When you find yourself wanting to complain, focus on what you are grateful for instead.

Focus More On Daily Winning No Matter How Small

When golfers play a round of golf, they don't focus on all the bad shots they had. They always focus on the one great shot. That's what gets them addicted to the game of golf. They want to recreate that shot, so they play again and again. It's the same with life.

Instead of focusing on all ...

Positive success formula: E + P = O

Embrace the positive success formula: E + P = O. We can't control the events (E) in our lives. We can't control the economic conditions. We can't control the job market. We can't control the actions of others. But we can control our positive energy and our positive reactions (P) ...

View Your Life In A Grateful Way Which Inspires You

View your life as an inspirational tale, not a horror movie. The stories we tell ourselves and the roles we play determine the quality and direction of our lives. I regularly work with realtors (an industry that, admittedly, has a tough row to hoe these days). The best ones are a...

Stay Positive While Interacting With Toxic People

Or better yet, overpower them with your positive energy. Most Energy Vampires aren't malicious. They're just frightened and trapped in negative cycles of their own. The good news is that positivity is contagious. You can infuse the naysayers around you with your positive energy. ...

Focus On Your Inner Perspective And Approach Toward Life

Replace "have to" with "get to." They are two simple words that can change your mind-set, perspective, and approach to work and life. So often we complain and say things like, "I have to go to this meeting." "I have to meet with this client." "I have to take care of this customer...

Keep Your Vision Alive

Don't quit at Mile 20. At what mile do you suppose most runners quit a marathon? You might assume the answer is Mile 26. After all, that's when runners should be the most physically drained and exhausted. But you'd be wrong. Besides the first mile, the 26th is when the least amou...
