Do You Have the Right Perspective Toward Solving Problems?

To authentically succeed in life, your perspective toward challenges is critical! 

As we all know, life at times can be extremely difficult…personally and professionally.

The key to dealing with life’s problems is not to ask why bad things happen to us. 

Instead we should ask, What can I learn from this?

How can I use this present challenge to grow?  


Action Step:
Set a goal this week to observe how you are responding to a challenge or problem. 

Is your attitude positive or negative? 

Do some personal introspection to see if this is an area you feel you may need to improve upon.

The Importance of Attitudes, Beliefs & Commitments

What are the keys to success in your life?
The better you can define what success means to you personally and professionally, the greater opportunity you will have to achieve your desired goals and objectives in life.

Action Step:
Set a goal this week to define the core elements that will help you become personally and professionally successful.

It is important for you to understand your attitude towards challenges and/or opportunities, what you truly believe matters most, as well as what you are committed to (personally and professionally).

Operating daily upon these definitions will have a dramatic effect on your level of authentic success.

"Only a man or woman of discipline will truly succeed in all areas of their life."

The Importance of Being Character-Centered!

Character will make or break your success personally or professionally.
Character-centeredness is the ultimate source of our power individually, institutionally and socially.

Character-centeredness is not only the source of real strength but also the key to a life of satisfaction.

Employers today, more than ever, realize that a person’s character is of equal or greater importance to their job skills.

Cultivating your character is both beneficial and necessary. 


Action Step:
This week conduct a personal introspection on your character. 

List out what you consider your character qualities to be. 

Also list out what areas you feel you could improve upon.             

Quote of the Week:
“To be authentically successful, you must be the same on the inside as you are on the outside.” 

Are You Successful?

Before you can answer that question, you have to ask this one: 
What is your definition of Success? Everyone has a definition of success, but the key is, what is yours? The better you can define what success means to you personally and professionally, you'll have a greater opportunity to realize your desired goals and objectives. 

Action Step:
Set a goal this week to put your definition of success in writing. Be sure you define what your meaning of success is and work hard to prevent others from defining it for you.

Quote of the Week:
"Authentic Success is the progressive realization of all that you were meant to be and do."

Have great week!

Most don't know that the English language is almost alone among major languages in having the word earn in it's vocabulary. Those of us whose native language is English assume that the phrase to earn a living is universal. It isn't. It's almost unique to English. Few languages have the ability to say this.In the Romance languages, for example (a list that includes such major languages as Spanish, French, and Italian) the word used when saying someone earns money, is ganar in Spanish and gagner in French. The word literally means to win. In Hebrew the word marveach means profits. In German, the word verdient means deserves.Obviously, it's very different to win, to deserve or to profit than to earn.From 1960-70, a concerted effort has been made to weed the word (and therefore the cultural value of) earning from American life. Increasingly little is earned. Instead of earning, we're increasingly owed, we have more rights, or we're simply given.Another increasi…
