Feeling Pumped Up And Inspired….

Feeling Pumped Up And Inspired….

Wow…. Another week is halfway through…

I have been working on some things lately (if you follow me on Social Media you have already seen some of the announcements), but I have to say there are a few things that really have my mind working overtime and then there are some of my friends that have really helped to inspire and drive me even more.


With that said, I will be sharing some of these inspirations with you over the next posts to come, but to get things rolling I wanted to ask you something…

Who are the people in your life that inspire you? What triggers inspiration to suddenly reach out and smack you?
Post your comments below and share and let’s help each other grow ๐Ÿ™‚

To get things rolling, I want to tell you a little about 4 people in my life that are always there, supportive, my wake-up call when I need it and quite often just trigger that inspiring moment or thought that gets me rolling once again.

First and foremost there’s the angel in my life, my wife Brandy.

Next are my friends Doug Champigny and Willie Crawford.

Next is one of my favorite coaches, Ray Edwards.

Now this is by no means an exhaustive list of all the people that inspire me and doesn’t even touch the things that reach my inner core and spirit and drive me, but like I said, this is just to get things started. Keep an eye open for upcoming posts that will outline each of the 4 a little more and how they are helping my engines to stay revved ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime I am looking forward to reading who or what inspires you, so share your comments below and tell your friends to share theirs as well.

Here’s to your success,


What are you grateful for today? What is making you feel thankful?

Powerful Tip For A Better Life
Feed Your Attitude Of Gratitude Daily!

Yes indeed, if you start to make it a habit and feed your Attitude of Gratitude each and every day it will certainly improve your quality of life.

We all face the challenges life throws our way differently. But there is a simple way that you can start making these challenges much more easy to deal with and how you can make what might have been a really tough day feel that much better. Even more impacting are those awesome days when expressing your gratitude and thankfulness will just amplify the way you feel.

Did you have a rough commute with delays and road construction driving you mad? Did something break and you are fretting over how to fix it? Is someone at work testing your patience?

You name it, whatever challenge you are facing, no matter how big or small, if you focus your attention on those things you are thankful for, it will lessen the impact the challenge will have on you and allow you to move forward with certain and powerful steps toward a better life.

Some people think they don’t have anything to be grateful for, but I beg to differ…

It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, there is always something to be thankful and grateful for.

Accident scene had you late to work? Be thankful that you were not involved in the accident. Accidents happen and there was nothing you could have done to avoid it. Be hopeful for those involved that nothing serious happened to anyone.

Something broke at home? Perhaps some waterpipe gave you grief? Be grateful that you have a roof over your head and that everyone stayed safe.

You get the idea. Sure, those things can be frustrating, but if you remain focused on what you are grateful for you will be surprised how much easier and more enjoyable life becomes.

Teach your kids to have an Attitude of Gratitude early as they too are dealing with a lot in life each and every day.


What are you grateful for today? What has you feeling thankful?

Share your thoughts and comments and invite your friends that may be having a rough day to read this powerful tip for a better life and pass it on.

Remember, you will get more of that which you focus on, so focus on something awesome and something that makes you feel thankful and grateful.

Here’s to your success,

P.s. I will start the share by telling you that I am thankful I am able to share these tips with you and I am grateful that you took the time today to read this post. I hope you found it helpful and will share it with your friends. Have an AWESOME DAY!!!


It has been too long…

It has been too long…

It has been a long time since I have added any new posts, more ‘Words Of Wisdom Worth A Second Thought’ or frankly anything else here at…

Thanks to my friends gentling (or in some cases not so gently) nudging and encouraging me, I have decided it is time to get back to workย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Look for helpful tips, guidance and encouragement coming your way again and thank you to all of you for always keeping me on my toes.

Here’s to your success,

(Special shout out to my friend Doug Champigny as well as F.A. (you know who you are ๐Ÿ™‚ )


Zig Ziglar’s thoughts on The Meaning Of Success

Zig Ziglar’s thoughts on The Meaning Of Success

Success means a lot of things to a lot of different people, but unfortunately, all too often success seems to be elusive, hiding from you when you are searching for it the hardest.

For many people success means being the Top Dog, the boss, or extremely wealthy, or possessing a lot of material wealth. At the same time many people believe that success means something different altogether to them.

The question isn’t really ‘What Is The Meaning Of Success’ as far as I can see it.

To me, the question really needs to be: “What Is The Meaning Of Success To YOU???”

That’s really all that matters…

How do you define success? What do you need to accomplish to feel you are a success?

“Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.”
~ Zig Ziglar

I think Zig Ziglar is spot on…

It really depends on your own definition of success, but the best part is the journey, the feeling you get each time you’ve achieved the next step to achieving success according to your definition.

What Cooking Taught Me That Made Me A Better Communicator

What Cooking Taught Me That Made Me A Better Communicator

It’s surprising sometimes, if you keep your mind open, how life all around you can teach you valuable lessons that can help you become a better person.

Recently I ran into a situation where I received a rather tough email requiring a reply. Frankly I wasn’t sure how best to reply to the email, how to address the concerns and more importantly, how I could help the sender without making them feel poorly about my guidance.

Yes, sometimes you do have to be tough in your emails and tough love does sometimes help, but this was not one of those cases. I needed to really be careful what I wrote and how I said it to effectively help and not turn this situation negatively.

No matter how hard I wracked my brain however, I just couldn’t formulate the reply in such a way that the needed guidance was provided without it sounding harsh and knowing that even I would not be happy if I received it.

And That’s Where Something I Learned From Cooking Helped Me Become A Better Communicator!

You see, if you are standing over the stove with all the burners going at the same time and the oven is baking something yummy too, it can get rather chaotic. This pot needs stirring, this pot needs more ingredients prepared, the yummies in the oven need to be turned over – aarrgh I need more armsย  ๐Ÿ™‚

I am sure you know the feeling…

The best thing you can do at times is to turn some of those burners down to Simmer (low heat) while you get everything else done to ensure you can serve a wonderful and delicious meal.

And that’s exactly what I did with the email I was struggling to write….

I stepped away, worked on something different for a little while and then came back to it, essentially putting the email on Simmer for a bit.

This time I was able to craft a reply that delivered the guidance needed while not potentially causing hurt feelings. It was received in exactly the spirit I had hoped for and the recipient was thankful that I had been able to help give some advice that would assist.

Sometimes you just need to step away and then reapproach things you may be stuck on. The same thing applies to writing for example. When I wrote ‘Words Of Wisdom Worth A Second Thought‘ there were a couple of times where I just kept struggling to put the right words down that conveyed the message clearly and in a guiding fashion.

I had to step away, maybe go play with the kids for a little bit, read something different, just do anything that would take my mind off the problem at hand for a moment or two and then I was able to get right back to writing my book.

The Law Of Attraction also teaches us that when we are stuck, we start to focus more and more on the fact that we are stuck and not on the solution. By stating our intention to find a solution, focusing on what it will feel like with the problem solved (i.e. how much better my book will be once I have overcome this writer’s block) and then releasing that intention into the universe we allow the universe to help us find a solution.

Some schools of thought also talk about that at this point our subconscious takes over and helps to find the solution we are seeking.

So, the next time you are about to pull out your hair and just don’t know what you should do next, consider putting the issue on Simmer, step away and have fun for a little bit and then come back with a fresh and clear mindย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s to your success,

P.s. There are areas in business for example that people seem to often struggle with. One such area is growing your list into a profitable and responsive source of revenue. Time and again those of us that have done so successfully are asked for guidance. If you stop by here (link opens in a new window), Willie Crawford and I are more than happy to help you in this area, at no charge, so please go check it out right now and take the next step toward your success.



When The Teacher Becomes The Student Once More

When The Teacher Becomes The Student Once More

Before I tell you more about my recent experience/realization, I want to apologize to you for having been so quiet of late. It was only today that I believe I had a breakthrough that helped me understand better what is happening and I feel it may not just explain my silence but be some helpful information for you too…

In January I took on a new task as the Manager of Professional Development in addition to my other coaching and writing aspects. In that time I also made a new commitment to myself and my family (although I temporarily have fallen with regards to my smoking, but that is (I DECLARE!) only temporary!!!).

I also began work on (a site dedicated to bring you the best news, articles and posts from some of the greatest coaches in the world, such as Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, T. Harv Eker, John Maxwell and many more, especially as the site grows).

I just now had a light-bulb ‘AHA’ moment and realized that the coach, the teacher, has once more become the student….

Lately, I found myself wondering why I wasn’t writing as much as before. I felt a struggle internally and often would find many other things going on that appeared to be placed in my way to prevent me from sharing tips that can help you succeed and frankly it was becoming frustrating.

The more frustrated I became, the more it appeared I wasn’t getting anywhere even if I tried to focus. The words just wouldn’t flow and the tips and lessons were incomplete, half-hearted and confusing.

I bet you already know what happened next, don’t you?

Yep, I became even more frustrated. Butย  I also realized that something was going on and redirected my energies to understanding what was happening and finally, today, the message became clear to me during a conversation with a friend and mentor.

The Teacher Has Become The Student Once More!

I have been so focused on learning and growing that I have been absorbing everything. I have read many books, listened to many audios, watched many movies/lectures/seminars, you name it. I have once more become the sponge that absorbs all the knowledge and wisdom I can.

It has also led to some changes in the way I see certain things, not a change like a 180 degree turnaround, but rather the depth and understanding have grown.

Sure, I could have continued to write through all of this, and perhaps I should have shared what I was studying, but for some reason the universe appeared to want my full attention on my studies and I only just ‘clicked’ that it was happening today.

One of the big lessons I have learned recently I will share with you in my next post, but for now I invite you to share your own experiences where you had a sudden breakthrough or AHA moment in life or what you are currently studying to help yourself become a better person.

The Challenge For Many Aspiring Online Entrepreneurs…

The Challenge For Many Aspiring Online Entrepreneurs…

Time and time again I am asked by new or aspiring online entrepreneurs for guidance on how to grow their business.

No, this is not going to be one of those Top Tips Lists, because frankly, I could write several volumes of books about it, there are so many. And there are so many new methods that appear all the time.

The real challenge often is the distraction factor, exactly because there are so many ways to grow your business.

One thing remains a simple fact however and that is that one of the main keys is content! And that is exactly where many people get ‘hung up’ in their dreams of growth…

I hear things such as ‘I am not a writer’ or ‘I don’t know what to write about’, etc.

Often times we all find ourselves at that point where we just don’t know what to write about or how to craft our message in a compelling and yet helpful way.

The answer can be as simple as using Private Label Rights (PLR) to help you along the way, but you don’t just want any PLR, too much of it is just plain junk.

The good news is that there are many excellent sources of high-quality PLR content, but the cost can be very steep, so if you are on a budget, well, then you are out of luck again.

Here’s a collection (not just 1) that will provide you with tons of great content and much more!

Not only will you get access to excellent Private Label Rights that you can make your own, but you get the complete package to help you succeed and what is even better is that for a short time you even get a bonus. Actually, there are a lot more than just one bonus, but you’ll have to go check it out for yourself!

Just take a look at everything you get with each of these PLR products:


Go take a look at all of the Private Label Products included in this deal as well as the helpful bonuses right now!
