Have you ever wondered why, oftentimes, we know what we need to do to get better results in life—personal or business—but can’t get ourselves to do it? We always hear, “You must know your why.” Seriously, have you ever met someone who didn’t have a why? We all do. So how is it that a…

Of the many mental self-motivation tools, techniques and strategies there are for building and enhancing our inner motivation levels to overcome obstacles and achieve our goals and dreams, learning to recall, re-live and celebrate personal victories should not be ignored. In fact, it is the key to replicating the successes of our past for the…

I love my work, especially interviewing network marketing leaders for our Master Networker profiles. Each time it’s a story about love: love of a product, love of a business model, love of an organization, love of dreams, love of people, love of freedom. Without love, there is no success, even in business. Growing up, I…

What are you responsible for? Some of us define our responsibilities narrowly (our health, family, finances…), while others see a much bigger picture.

Similarly, the first of the Four Noble Truths Buddha taught in the fifth century BC was “Life is suffering.” Today, this truth is not particularly popular. We believe life should be easy…

He would study an inmate’s chart and then look within himself to see how he created that person’s illness. As he improved himself, the patient improved. When I first heard this…

practice makes permanent

Sometimes, there’s nothing worse than having it all figured out. You’re doing it day in and day out, and have been doing it for so long now that it’s second nature. You don’t even have to think about the mechanics of it. You know the phrases. “I can do this in my sleep,” “with one…
