Desire Is the Secret Sauce of Success

Here’s a success formula that has worked for me. I forget the source so I have left the words that are not mine in block quotes. From my experience, I can tell you this formula works. I can also tell you that it falls apart if you don’t get the first step right. Let’s do a quick thought experiment: Imagine someone holding your head underwater….

Make Your Tomorrow Come Today

hmmm…I sat down to start writing because one, I needed to get my writing in for toady, but also because I was inspired by a few blog posts from Alexander Supervamp. She has a playful writing style that I enjoy. I was inspired enough to put my broom down, crack open my MacAir, and start pounding the keys. But the funny thing about writing some…

The Best Action Verb Is Go

What’s your dream? Stop and think about this for a moment. Time is moving forward and so are you.  But are you drifting through time or are you living on purpose? And by that I mean, are you doing what you need to do in order to pursue your dreams now, or are you putting everything on hold until some time in an imaginary future…

It’s Never Too Late To Begin

It’s never to late to begin. It’s easy to look back on your life and think that you have wasted it chasing after rainbows and butterflies or sweating it out in a job you didn’t like because you needed the money or lacked the imagination to design your own life. The thing to remember is that we are the sum total of our decisions. The…

I Met An Old Foe

I met an old foe yesterday.  One of the three Guardians at The Gate.  The Guardian known as Doubt.   I was close to packing up my marbles and going home.  I didn’t want play anymore.  Doubt was kicking my ass big time.  And in short, I was afraid my current efforts to build and create something meaningful might be in vain. Then I remembered this…

Keep At It

I have arrived in Crawley. I left the house just after 7PM, which at least meant I’d miss the rush hour traffic, which I did. It was a smooth journey down. I’m staying at the Premier Inn. One of the things I like about taking a long long ride with myself is that I get a chance to think. I think better when I am…

The Secret to Success

To be successful you must be able to articulate EXACTLY what you want.  Identify EXACTLY what stops you from getting it, and then articulate EXACTLY what you are going to do about it.  And then DO it. It’s that simple, but just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy.  You will have to work hard to get what you want.  But if you REALLY want…

The Fear Has Big Eyes

Courage is the mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.  – Mark Twain     I waited for the inevitable question.  If your voluntary redundancy goes through, what will you do then?  It was a question I had asked myself many times before submitting the paperwork that would set me free, or so I thought. Other questions followed.  What if the business doesn’t work…

How To Achieve Your Goals Every Time!

It’s well know statistic that those who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them than those who don’t. And the more specific you are about your goals, increases your chances of achieving them by a factor of 10.  But most people don’t write their goals down.  And even when they do, they write very fuzzy goals, which decreases their chances of achieving…
