Success takes time

Just as it takes time for you to adjust and learn new skills — success takes time. Be aware that mistakes will continue to happen in your business even after you have reached your peak potential. You will always need to be learning something new in business to stay innovative and on top of your game. So when you think you have it all figured out and have made all the mistakes you need to make to learn, something will challenge you again and test your confidence. Making mistakes – turning them into challenges and then overcoming those obstacles in business – is extremely REWARDING. There is nothing that can challenge, motivate and build your confidence faster. Mistakes and challenges →

Can mistakes be good for your business?

Boost your success confidence

Before you can be highly successful at any business you must first sell your ideas, your strategies, your business practice, your goals, your skills, your experience, your products and services. You must be absolutely SOLD on you. Your confidence will never fail you. What can fail you are those things in which you place your confidence. In selling yourself successfully, absolute confidence in “yourself” is a must! Confidence, in turn, breeds courage. This being true, you must make sure that your self-confidence goes to work for you, because in selling ourselves, we place confidence in ourselves. Why do you think confidence is so important in building success? If you don’t have confidence in yourself, you can’t expect prospective customers to →

Shift to Making a Difference

“Succeeding in new things creates confidence. Confidence in turn creates unstoppable success.” ~ Debbie Allen As an entrepreneur, my background in business started at a very young age, but I had no formal business training, except for what I learned from the school of hard knocks. I’ve built and sold numerous million dollar companies and although I’ve had many successes in my life, there came a time where I felt something was missing. That “something” was giving back to others. I had been blessed with having the opportunity to work with many wonderful mentors and experts throughout my life and believed it was time for me to begin supporting others with the wisdom I had learned while growing and marketing my →

Shifting requires ignoring conventional approaches, paving your own path

If you want to stand out in this world, you must get really serious about doing something different and moving away from the “sea of sameness.” Focus on being different. Ordinarily, we achieve conventional wisdom following conventional ideas. We experience reasonable gains when we rely on reasonable approaches. You may find ways to make modest improvements and, in turn, make a modest income. But, if you go looking for nothing more than that, you will only have modest gains. Experts stand out and get noticed for the differences they make, not by following the status quo. They create quantum leaps by abandoning what’s been done and said before. Instead of once again doing what you have always done, shift to →

Allow your passion to ignite your determination to achieve more

Passion must be filled with visions of a dream that are dramatic enough to make a big difference. Your emotional intensity must burn hot enough to protect you against the chilling effects of doubt, uncertainty, criticism and failure. Only deep desire can generate such heat. For example, when I’m speaking to an audience, my natural enthusiasm for what I teach allows energy to flow into me like a flame. Since I’ve learned to speak my mind and share my one true voice – my natural passion shines through, every time. It’s never forced because it’s authentically me. This fire never lets me down because every word I speak comes from soul and my spirit – a place that resides both →

Create a new path – one of less resistance

The majority of people can be found flying too close to the ground. Too often they don’t give themselves permission to soar. Get uncomfortable. Prepare yourself for “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.” You’re going to cover some unfamiliar territory and encounter obstacles you’ve never faced before. It can feel like a roller coaster out of control when the safety of your behavior patterns is being stretched to the limit. The normal reaction is to want to hold on tight. But you’re going to have to learn to let go if you truly want to soar. If you feel uncomfortable, that’s a good sign. If you are experiencing no anxiety or discomfort, the risk you’re taking probably isn’t worth it for you. →
