hold on tightly to your dreams – they are your dreams for a reason

When I first read Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, the world was infinitely quieter. There was no social media and not everyone had access to or could bear staying “on” line long because of the speed. Still the percentages stay roughly the same between those who succeed on their terms and those who don’t.Continue reading “hold on tightly to your dreams – they are your dreams for a reason”

Do you feel more comfortable having a Plan B when setting business or financial goals?

“When you’re living your Plan B, success is someone else’s success. You’re living inherently based on someone else’s expectation of you.” @payalkadakia  It seems like a good idea to have options, but many times on the entrepreneurial journey, energy is limited. If you try to do too many things at the same time, you willContinue reading “Do you feel more comfortable having a Plan B when setting business or financial goals?”

Dare to Start Something!

When John MacDonald first proposed to build the great New York Subways people laughed at him. He went to one “big” financier after another and the answer of all was the same: “Dig a tunnel under all these streets and houses, with their maze of pipe lines and electric cables and gas mains and sewers?Continue reading “Dare to Start Something!”

When You Feel As if There’s Nothing Left…There’s More

I’m beginning to understand what I have heard countless wise individuals share in articles and talks…that you should never wait on inspiration or motivation…that you should just begin. I wrote a couple days ago about the ten minute hack which you can read here but he was talking about at the start of the day, whenContinue reading “When You Feel As if There’s Nothing Left…There’s More”

When you are DOING… it’s hard to be Doubting

I will be like a raindrop that washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth…small attempts repeated will complete any undertaking – Og Mandino That’s the power of persistence. Hacking away at the tree with an axe until it falls. Doing a little bit every day. Taking oneContinue reading “When you are DOING… it’s hard to be Doubting”

The Trait that is as Rare as a Ten Carat Diamond

What is the Significance of the Number 1008?

1008 represents persistence. It’s the number of times that Colonel Sanders offered his secret recipe for fried chicken to restaurants in exchange for a percentage of profits. It was not until door number 1009 that he heard the word he set out to hear: YES!!! I’ve heard variations of the Colonel’s story but there’s nothingContinue reading “What is the Significance of the Number 1008?”

The P word that’s packed with power!

ERSISTENCE! Without it – not much happens. Chances are, the first time you attempt something, you’re not going to be successful. Without persistence you’ll just throw in the towel, roll over and expire. Persistence is the ‘fall down seven times, get up eight’ principle. It’s dipping down inside of you for that energy to doContinue reading “The P word that’s packed with power!”

Change is difficult – step or otherwise

There’s something to be said about persistence. There’s something to be said about having a good support system in place particularly when you embark on an unfamiliar journey. Kinda reminds me of the song “How Do You Keep The Music Playing” made popular by James Ingram and Patti Austin in the ’80s. “How do youContinue reading “Change is difficult – step or otherwise”
