People are always waiting for the time to be right before doing what they know will benefit them.
The better way to proceed is to learn, do, teach.
Do whatever you learn right away and start teaching others about it as well.
This will get you to understand and benefit from things much more quickly.
Isn’t it funny how some people never seem to have enough time to do anything?
Especially since we all live through the same 24 hours each day?
Do You Make Time For the Right Activities?
In most cases, success in life does not just appear over night.
When we look into the history of those dubbed “overnight successes“, you see that they have been working away for years to hone their skills in the background.
Just as every journey is made up of thousands, and sometimes millions, of steps, so is the path to success.
By determining what you want and doing whatever you can each day to bring you closer to your goal, you will make progress by reaching different milestones regularly.
In time, you will be able to look back and see that all those small victories along the way is what brought you the success in your life you deserve.
Are you one of those people who lives for the weekend?
Do you dread getting out of bed on Monday morning?
If you are not doing what you enjoy during the week, this could be the reason for these symptoms.
Take a look at your situation and ask yourself “Do I enjoy the work I do?”
Has this ever happened to you?
If you’re a golfer you can relate to this:
- Your shot lands in the bunker next to the green.
- You hit out too hard and it lands in the bunker on the other side.
- You hit the next shot too soft and it stays in the bunker.
- Need I continue?
I was watching the Masters golf tournament, and the pros make the bunker shots look easy.
They routinely pitch the ball out of an 8 foot deep bunker and land the shot to within 2 feet of the hole.
What you don’t see is the preparation that makes this feat possible. Continue reading
The Cash is in the Follow-up
It is not very often that a sale is made on the first visit.
To see what I mean, go to your local mall and do some research.
Sit outside any store with a single entrance, so you can track the people going in and out of the store.
Note how many people go into the store and leave empty handed.
Compare this number to the amount that leave with a purchase.

Develop Your Knowledge to Become a Leader
No matter what field you are interested in, someone has written a book about it at some time.
One of the best ways to learn about any subject is to read about it.
You don’t even need to find a copy of the book anymore.
Most books have an e-book version you can read right on your computer or many other handheld devices.
So if you want to get ahead in any area, start reading all you can about the subject.
Before long you will know more than most people and can be considered an expert on it!
Read something informative each day to take advantage of all of the information available to you in books. Continue reading
Will taking action be the key to your success?
Do you ever get caught up in learning all that you can about something before actually doing it?
You know, you read a couple of books, watch some videos then hear about some online course you can take and start on that, without ever really doing anything?
These are symptoms of what is referred to as “analysis paralysis“.
You get so caught up in learning and understanding something that you never get moving on actually doing it.
Don’t get caught in this trap!
Start implementing what you learn today.
Take action and keep moving forward toward your goal.
Positive Thoughts can Lead to Positive Outcomes
We have a tendency to look at the negative more closely than the positive.
When things are going wrong, we have no problem at all giving all of the reasons for our difficulties.
But when asked to give a possible solution, we tend to draw a blank.
You should practice looking for solutions first whenever a setback occurs instead of analyzing why it happened.
You can always go back and analyze after you are back on track.
Accentuate the positive and you will find more solutions and less problems
