Three Rules for Turning Stress Into Success

Three Rules for Turning Stress Into Success

1. Accept the Unchangeable – Everything that has happened in your life to this minute is unchangeable. It’s history. The greatest waste of energy is in looking back at missed opportunities, lamenting past events, grudge collecting, getting even, harboring ill will, and any vengeful thinking. Success is the only acceptable form of revenge. By forgiving […]

The Power Of Belief And Expectation

The Power Of Belief And Expectation

While you may not always get what you want, you will always get what you expect! Surprisingly, the power of belief and expectation work just as effectively on your feelings of self-doubt and limitation as they do on your thoughts of success and achievement. Think thoughts of defeat or failure and you are bound to […]

Establishing Dreams And Goals

Establishing Dreams And Goals

One of the amazing things we have been given as humans is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life, and the ability to establish goals to live out those dreams. Think of it: We can look deep within our hearts and dream of a better situation for ourselves and our families; dream […]

The Miracle of Personal Development

The Miracle of Personal Development

One day Mr. Shoaff said, “Jim, if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn this lesson well: Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job.” Since that time I’ve been working on my own personal development. And I must admit that this has been the most challenging assignment of all. […]

Love the Opportunity

Love the Opportunity

Somebody said you have to love what you do, but that’s not necessarily true. What is true is that you have to love the opportunity. The opportunity to build life, future, health, success and fortune. Knocking on someone’s door may not be something you love to do, but you love the opportunity of what might […]

The Formula for Failure and Success

The Formula for Failure and Success

Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. We do not fail overnight. Failure is the inevitable result of an accumulation of poor thinking and poor choices. To put it more simply, failure is nothing more than a few errors in judgment repeated every day. Now why would someone make an error in judgment and then […]

Mr. Shoaff's Simple Strategies to Success

Mr. Shoaff’s Simple Strategies to Success

My first mentor, Mr. Shoaff, over a five-year period of time before he died at age 49, taught me some extraordinarily simple things. He only went through the 9th grade in school. He never finished high school, never went to college, never went to a university. So he put his experiences and ideas in very […]

Ten Career Skills to Keep You Employable In The 21st Century

Ten Career Skills to Keep You Employable In The 21st Century

Most people drive through life looking in their rearview mirror and judging the future by the past. They have a really good view of where they have been; and mistakenly think the future will be similar to the past, as they make decisions based on their previous experiences. Even though past experience gives a base […]

Self Esteem And Success

Self Esteem And Success

I’ve always felt and observed that the most successful people have a really healthy dose of self esteem. We’re not talking about ego- centric megalomania here. Just a good strong sense of self that provides the building blocks for doing the rights things right, and not being awfully concerned about the opinions of others about […]
