Make Things Work for You, Not Against You

I get asked all the time, “what it is that makes successful people successful?” or, “why is that when someone has a particular success that they tend to have another and another?” The truth is that success really does happen when your dreams and your desires get bigger than your excuses. I wanted to be […]

Perspective in Struggle

None of us like to struggle. There really is no other way to respond to difficult things than you say, “this sucks!” But if you stop there, difficulty wins, dreams die, and regrets take seed. Perspective and mindset give you the tools to look past struggle and see yourself where you want to be. Now, […]

Legendary Truth

Zig Zigler is one of my favorite motivational speakers and authors. There are so many talks and videos that I’ve seen that have had an enormous impact on me over the years.   One of the quotes that I love most is this idea that “there is no elevator to success, you have to take […]

Exercise and Training Required

One of the most powerful tools any individual can possess is the ability to laser-focus your mind. Having expertise, capability, and skill is a beautiful thing, but those things will only get you so far.  Just ask any professional athlete. A mindset that is developed, honed, and exercised is like a healthy physique it can […]

Often Overlooked

Paying close attention to your health is as much a business decision as it is a health decision.  Of course, there are great benefits from a healthy lifestyle.  However, what is often overlooked is the distinct business advantage from being healthy.   For years, I really never thought that much about it.  I would make […]

Because we are so driven, we sometimes struggle to look up and realize where our true power and genuine success lay.   While in pursuit of income, notoriety, and freedom, we fail to understand that giving to others and investing in others unlocks incredible […]

I’ll just say it…Ouch!

Sometimes the Mindset of the Day just stings a bit, and today’s is no exception. Getting comfortable in your own skin sounds easy but it can fool you.   Why is that? The primary reason is fear and the secondary reason is comparison.   Fear over whether or not we will be liked, believed, or […]

How Are Ya Livin’?

One of my best friends, client, and business partner is Dr. Rick Rigsby.  He tells a story of his dad who was a third grade dropout and used to ask him all the time when Rick was young, “Son, how ya livin?”   Now at the time, Mr. Rigsby was making sure his boys were […]

An Upward Word

I am always cautious when addressing anything around the topic of religion and faith.  I want to be respectful of your tradition or freedom to not have a tradition.   That being said, faith is very important for me and the role of prayer is central to who I am as a human being.   […]
