Goal Setting and Life Visions

Goal Setting Tip – Creating A Compelling Vision Of Your Life Here’s a tip for you when you begin your goal setting journey and creating your vision. Remember that your vision is not your mission statement. It is not your reason for existence, and it is not your life purpose. Your vision is a visual representation of how you see your future self. It is a future desirable description of your life. Brian Tracy once said in one of his seminars, “Those who don’t plan out their future don’t get to have one.” Creating a vision is the first...

How to Stop Worrying And Start Living…

Posted by on 9:31 am in Self Mastery | 0 comments

This is an excellent review of some of the worry principles in Dale Carnegie’s book, How To Stop Worrying and Start Living. As a business manager once pointed out to me in one of my classes, this is an excellent book on business management and controlling your resources, both physical and mental. You highlighted this beautifully in your first quote from Thomas Carlyle. We can only act on one “item” at a time, and only on what lies within reach. There’s always a case to be made for long term planning. But once a decision is reached, you must...

SMB Owners In The Communication Age I have been in the training industry for quite a while and I have received many requests for information on the Dale Carnegie Course, and a lot more requests for help. People in businesses, especially small businesses, want to know how they can be better presenters, better sales people, better leaders and at the very core, be better people builders. They want to work effectively with their peers and lead the people that look to them for guidance and mentorship. Take the following letter I recently received....

Win Sales by Gaining Willing Cooperation

There I was, sitting across the table from a potential customer and I was desperately trying to sell him on the Dale Carnegie Course. I had talked to a number of his colleagues, exchanged several emails with him, and had talked with him several times on the phone. Now, I finally had the opportunity to sit down with him face to face. This was my shot. Just one problem – he wasn’t engaged. He was hearing the sounds that were coming out of my mouth, but mentally he was on a tropical vacation. And I couldn’t get him back. In a final...

Setting Goals In The New Millennium

The New Dynamics of Setting Goals Back when I was starting my Dale Carnegie journey, the rules for achieving success were clearly identified and taught by some of the greatest trainers in the country. Trainers like Denis Waitley, Zig Ziglar, Tom Hopkins, Tony Robbins, and Brian Tracy. If you were going to spend some windshield time between sales calls, these were the guys you listened to. They had all the various formulas for obtaining success and they always started with setting goals. I know that it’s not like it was before. Times change....

Prepare your information so you can deliver it easily and your audience can assimilate and recall it effortlessly. If your audience can...

“This year I’ll get a better job!” “I’m going to be my own boss!” “I’m ready to spend more time with family and friends!” We start out with such excitement, enthusiasm, and confidence! But as excited and confident as we are it’s not long before our Inner Critic rears its ugly voice! “Ever year you tell yourself you’re going to have a better job and still you have the same job. You’re not qualified to do much else.” “Start your own business. That takes money and experience, both...

Breakthrough To Your Positive Voice

Posted by on 4:55 pm in Self Mastery | 0 comments

In my blog post, Three Attributes I’ve Seen In Successful People, I shared what I discovered to be the common traits successful people shared. It was after I posted my article that I found myself reflecting on the name, Jim Rohn, a highly successful American and author of An Inspired Life. After googling Jim Rohn’s name and reading his article, How To Stop Listening to the Negative Voice in Your Head , I was reminded just how powerful our negative voice is and yet how equally powerful our positive voice is when we seek to attract success into...

Posted by on 2:15 pm in Goal Setting | 0 comments

What makes successful people successful? It’s three shared attributes. When it comes to living a successful life, everyone wants to know the secret yet few are willing to work for it! If you’re seeking success, as a business person, parent, partner, spouse, community leader, even spiritually, you need to see, feel and own your success. As a professional development coach and trainer, I can confidently say, a very large percentage of individuals fail at being 100% committed to owning their success. They choose the voice of their inner-critic,...
