Do you want to develop habits of successful people?
“Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso
Have you had great ideas that have never come to fruition? Maybe you had a great idea for an invention, book, or unique business proposal, but for whatever reason you never got around to it?
That’s the reason most people don’t accomplish great things, they don’t consistently take the action needed to make their great idea a reality. For example, you might have the inspiration to lose 20 pounds so you can look and feel great. But for some reason or another you never get started on your exercise routine and your life remains the same.
You might be too busy or just too tired after a long day’s work. Life just seems to get in the way. Everyone has excuses for not taking action, don’t they?
Those people who put see their great ideas come to live follow the habits of successful people to get them up and taking action. Here are some simple tips you can use to get you tackling those great goals you have: Continue reading
Interested in living a stress free life?
“It’s not stress that kills us; it is our reaction to it.” – Hans Selye
In today’s world people are drowning in stress. While some stress, like the stress of a deadline can motivate you to get a project done on time, all this stress can add up and after a while even what seems to be a small amount of stress can adversely affect your ability to perform adequately.
A research study entitled, “Cognitive Emotion Regulation Fails the Stress Test,” found that even a small amount of stress directly and negatively impacts a person’s ability to keep their emotions in check. ( The Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, vol. 110 no. 37, Candace M. Raio, 15139–15144) Continue reading

Here’s how to use the the law of attraction
“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” - Joel A. Barker
Have you heard of the law of attraction? Simply put, the law of attraction says that what you focus on is what you’ll achieve in life. If you focus on lack, you’ll get lack. If you focus on prosperity you’ll get prosperity.
But the law of attraction is really not quite that simple. You can think about how you want your life to be until the end of time and your life will not change one bit – that is until you take action. By focusing on what you want and taking action, you are setting yourself up for success.
Here are some easy strategies you can follow to put the law of attraction to work for you: Continue reading
Adapt these morning habits of highly successful people
“The real secret of success is enthusiasm.” – Walter Chrysler
Sometimes is just hard to get enthused to go to work in the morning. Your eyes open but the long list of things to do overwhelm you before your feet hit the floor. When it comes right down to it there are tons of things you’d rather do than go to work today!
Job stress can dampen your enthusiasm and deplete your motivation. If you go to work in this state you won’t perform as well as you can and might not even perform up to expectations. After a while your boss may start to notice your lack of motivation.
But since your work is how you make your living it’s important to be able to overcome these feelings. You need to be able to knock down those obstacles while they are small before they begin to block your success.
One of the habits of highly successful people is to be able to build their enthusiasm each morning each morning before they even think about work. Think of this as a professional development plan, a stepping stone between where you are now and what you want to accomplish.
The following is a 4-step approach used by highly successful people to get every day started right: Continue reading
Demotivated? here’s how to motivate yourself!
“And will you succeed? Yes indeed, yes indeed! Ninety-eight and three-quarters percent guaranteed!” – Dr. Seuss
Everyone can get motivated about some things, like brushing their teeth or paying their rent. The reason people are motivated to do these things is because there are immediate negative consequences, from being shunned by your friends to being kicked out into the street by not doing them.
This type of motivation is known as negative motivation. The great thing about negative motivation is that for most people it works. However, negative motivation usually won’t work when there isn’t an immediate negative consequence. It also doesn’t get people to take the action necessary to help them succeed.
Most people will do anything in their power to take action once they have a problem but they will do very little to avoid having the problem. They do very little to help themselves succeed.
For example, if a person has a heart attack they are compelled to change their lifestyle, changing their diet and exercise program. Now this same person’s doctor has been telling them for the last 10 years that they could have a problem if they kept going down the same path but did this get them off the couch?
Of course not, that’s why they had the heart attack! Continue reading

Many people have overcome the fear of failure – So can you!
“Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.” Denis Waitley
If you’re like most people you have memories of failure, on a test, in a competition, in a relationship, whatever. Sometimes those memories are so strong that they still hurt. If they do, those feelings can make the thought of failing again frightening, leading to a fear of failure. Continue reading
Here’s 7 steps to help you raise your self esteem
“Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.” – Maxwell Maltz
For some people a lack of or low self-esteem can be traced back to childhood. Parents, being human, mess up some times and don’t do the parenting thing very well. Some have a difficult upbringing or suffer through traumatic events. In cases like these a child’s self-esteem can suffer. Sometimes these low self-esteem issues follow us into adulthood as well.
How Your Self Esteem Can Affect You
Difficult events can affect the how you see yourself. For example, if you lose your job or your relationship, have financial difficulties or file bankruptcy, you may begin to believe that you have a dark cloud floating over you and it’s all your fault these bad things to happened.
This can damage your self-esteem.

When clients come to me they often complain that they are stuck, they just can’t seem to get out of their comfort zone and accomplish whatever it is they’d like to accomplish. Using advanced hypnotherapy (hypnosis) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) I can usually help them quickly break out of their comfort zone and get them back on the road to achievement.
What I teach my clients is that in order to take control of your life you need to be able to quickly shift how you experience life.
What does this mean?
Let me tell you a story about six blind men that lived together in a village.
