10 Rules for Achieving Success

Goals are important in life.  They keep us on target, as they are most often milestone markers to our dreams and of our lives.   Not all goals have to be great.  They can be small, large or medium sized.  As simple as drinking more water every day to improve your health, or as complicated as getting in shape to compete in a triathlon.   Sometimes they can be achieved quickly, in a day or two, and sometimes they can take months, years, or even a lifetime.  Most of us start out with good intentions but do not always know how to achieve our goals.  We get lost along the way, turned around, or run out of motivation.   Its hard to keep focused without a game plan, and its hard to be successful if you don’t know how to start.  Recently we read a great book by Gary Ryan Blair called Goals &...

The Mind – Body Connection: Positive Healing

Recent studies show that severe prolonged stress and chronic negative thinking can compromise the immune system. By the same token, studies have also revealed that individuals with a positive attitude toward life tend to become sick less often than those with a negative attitude. It is also believed that a healthy upbeat attitude can in itself mobilize and stimulate the body’s defenders. For example, in a study of women with breast cancer. Dr. Sandra Levy at the University of Pittsburgh’s Cancer Institute found that women who were more depressed had lower natural killer cell activity than those with a hopeful, positive outlook. It was also noted that the women who had experienced a great deal of joy and happiness in their lives also had a higher survival rate. Even though this concept may ...

Walt Disney: Quitting was NEVER an Option

Walt Disney once said, “The difference between winning and losing, is most often, not quitting.” A man of action, persistence, dreams and dedication, Disney did win… but not before he went through endless bankruptcies, delays and failures, in which he never gave up.   Every failure was an opportunity to start over.  Every new opportunity was a chance to change the world of entertainment and animation.   How many Disney films and cartoons have you seen?  How many Disney characters can you name?   Could you image where we’d be if, at any point, Walt Disney threw in the towel?   For Walt, quitting was never an option. Facts you may not have known about Walt Disney…    Walt Disney was once fired by a newspaper company for a “lack of ideas.” His first animation stu...

One Choice Away from Changing Your Life

“You are always only one choice away from changing your life.” Every choice you make changes something.   Yes or no.    Right or left, up or down, black or white – every choice will bring you new a new place, down a new road, give you a new perspective, or take you in a new direction.    Whether our life changing choice is to buy a house, switch careers, go to college, start a family, or run a marathon… one small choice is all it takes. Your choice may not be as tangible as some choices… it may be a choice to stand up for yourself, or what you think, or know is right.   It may be the choice to voice your opinion or go against the grain.   Or it may simply be the choice to never give up on  your dreams, no matter how many times you’ve been rejected. So think carefull...

An American Industrialist and an Inspiration

Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947) was an American industrialist, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, and sponsor of the development of the assembly line technique of mass production. One of the biggest myths about Ford is that he invented the automobile and the assembly line, but neither of which is true.  Instead, he developed and manufactured the first automobile that middle class Americans could afford.   He created a revolution in the car industry taking it from only a luxury of the rich, to the beginning of an automotive manufacturing trend that would soon take over the 20th century. He was a visionary, a realist and a dreamer who followed his own path to fame and fortune.   Henry Ford’s work ethic and determination still inspire us today.   Some of his most memorabl...
