"Eighty percent of success is showing up."
~ Woody Allen
Most of the time, I'll hallucinate, you're probably really busy. Going, going all day. But how close are you getting to
the big dreams?
You have fantasies about being able to wear some of those "skinny clothes" in your closet, don't you? Remember that
friend of yours you had planned on calling? How about that group of leads that you wanted to work? What about that pile in the back yard that needs to be picked up and hauled away?
Man, life doesn't revolve around watching 'Friends' and staying for one more round of drinks. Is that really
fulfilling? Do you look back on that with pride or a feeling of accomplishment? Will those happy-hour buddies really snub
you if you left now? Are these people even supportive of your far off dreams?
The stars of 'Friends' make over a million per episode. How much do you make watching them? Get TIVO and you can watch them when you're too exhausted to do anything fun and rewarding.
I know what it's like to have no control over your desires...
And what it's like to transcend them.
And it's even tougher to take sometimes, when you do everything you need to do and you still don't get your
outcome. Darn frustrating, huh?
But here's a rule of thumb. If you're not done, keep going. Does it seem odd to even think about working past 5:00? What about throwing in the exercise video at 10:00 at night?
What would happen if you missed your favorite show this week? What would really happen? Shake up your routine. Get
out a piece of paper and write down just one goal. A medium-sized goal. Something you've been putting off. Put down the things you need to do to make it happen. Put a date that it absolutely will be done.
Again, make it a medium-sized task... something that would only take about 10-20 hours to complete. Make a schedule.
Commit to it... and finish it.
When I did community hearing clinics, I made all of my own phone calls to set them up, took care of all the
promotion... it was a lot of work. But I was driven by one thing... not being second in the door.
If a competitor got there a week or a month ahead of me, it could mean thousands of dollars. I couldn't bear the thought
of losing that much money because I couldn't get myself to pick up a 16-ounce telephone receiver to make two or three
Look at your fears. Figure out what they're costing you. If you don't ask that person out, you both may miss out
forever. If you don't practice, then you're not going to perform well. Plug in your own situation. Do you want those
Listen to your inner voice. What's it saying when you're worried or having a panic attack... over a very routine
thing for most people? When you're stopped cold, notice what you're focusing on and what you're telling yourself.
I'll guarantee it's not, "Go for it!" You're most definitely not telling yourself that you can do the job... that it's no
Look at the empowering beliefs below and commit them to memory. Say them over and over until you dream about them. Read them constantly. Your circumstances won't change until your thoughts change. Pound that into your head.
You know, I must have watched the movies "Rocky" and "Rudy" 50 times each. Why? Because nothing changes until you change what you think about. And emotional stories about people who overcome huge odds can inspire you to do the same.
Whenever I'm feeling stuck I pull out my empowering questions or my affirmation cards or read/watch an
empowering story. It never ever fails to get me back on track and hopeful.
Do like the legendary basketball coach John Wooden says and "drink from good books." He reads something powerful and encouraging every single day. And there was no better life coach than him. Do you believe "what goes in must come out?"
Then act by what you believe and keep the positive flowing in every minute you can. Set that goal... And get hustling.
Do that and something good will always happen.

March is already here…how crazy is that? Time truly flies and sometimes I swear I don’t know where it went.
My guess is that you feel the same way. And if you do, then you may also feel like you’re missing something along the way. Time, truly is our most precious commodity.
Jim Rohn, motivational speaker and master sales person, said that “Time is more valuable than money. You can always make more money. You can’t make more time.”
Some say that time is money, but ideally, time is truly more valuable than money. It’s virtually impossible to put a dollar value on the time you spend with a loved one, doing your favorite activity without interruption or enjoying a vacation.
Ready the following short, but powerful poem on time then take a minute today to reflect on how you use your time and with whom you spend it. Make sure you’re getting the most out of the time you spend each day so that you can enjoy a stellar life.
To realize the value of one year:Ask a student who has failed a final exam.
To realize the value of one month:Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of one week:Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of one hour:Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of one minute:Ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.
To realize the value of one second:Ask a person who has survived an accident.
To realize the value of one millisecond:Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.
Time waits for no one.
Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.
