Who Do You Need To Become To Make It Happen For You?
'We cannot become what we need to be remaining what we are.' -Max Dupree
Year after year, month after month, day after day, you have hoped for change.
You have dreamed and desired to accomplish your goal, to make it "big time", to get a better job, to start your own business, to pursue your academic aspirations, to find meaningful relationships, to lose the weight, to improve your financial situation and yet, year after year, month after month, day after day, there has been little or no significant change in your situation.
It's not that you're not motivated or passionate or serious enough about making your dream come true?as a matter of fact you are! But, the problem is that, you keep doing the same old things which don't produce results over and over again.
Consequently, you are still doing the same old job you dislike so much, struggling financially, steadily gaining the weight and almost giving up on your dream. To sum it up, " you are miserable!"
If the things you are doing, the plans you are making and the strategies you are pursuing don't produce results, STOP doing them today.
The sooner you realize that unless you change the way you perceive things and begin to do things differently, the quicker you will get the results you so desire.
'There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.' -Peter Drucker
To be able to live your best life and achieve your dreams and goals?some changes have to be made and they have to be made as soon as possible.
The goal may remain the same but either you "the person" or the main "game plan" has to change.
After re-examining all your stagnant goals and dreams and making a fresh commitment to pursue them, ask yourself the following three crucial questions which will help you do things differently and get you to finally take action on your goals.
1.Who do you need to become to achieve your goal? What qualities do you need to adopt? (Get really specific.)
2. Now that you have a second chance at pursuing this goal, what will you do differently? List what did not work in the past and what your new plans are.
3.What do you need to add to your life and what do you need to eliminate from your life to ensure that this goal is accomplished? Write out a list of do's and don'ts.
After truthfully answering this questions and choosing to apply the answers to your situation, you will get the needed ammunition to successfully pursue your goal.

Most of the time whenever we need to make an important business decision we turn to what is convenient or comfortable. Why is it that we never seem to want to venture out and try new things.

How to Make the Most of Being Let Go
Being let go; suffering redundancy; experiencing downsizing are all very different ways of saying the same thing. Your employer doesn't want you any more. Suddenly, that place; those people you've been bitching about for years, seems so much more attractive than it did yesterday - and you are going to fight tooth and nail to hang in there. But wait, maybe there's something in you that relishes the chance to move on and do something different.

It's like that old joke about how long did it take Bell to discover the light bulb. Then realizing it was Edison who did it. Though I like to think he developed it rather than discovered. He was much more methodical and had a set goal in mind.
Don?t Let Motivation Cause You to Fail
Yesterday my teenage son Matt came home with a less than stellar report card. (Yes, even peak performance experts sometimes have trouble motivating others.) Now Matt is by no means stupid. The reason he got poor grades is because he did not do the work that was required for some of his classes. Why didn't he do the work? According to him, he didn't feel motivated to do it. After having a loud discussion with him (translation: I was ranting and raving), I realized that Matt is no different than many people in his erroneous idea about motivation and success.

I'm back from Hawaii; it was ten days of physical and emotional mastery. We went from learning from twenty of the planets best speakers in their field, to being pushed physically with a fifty foot pole climb, and then, flying fifteen feet like a free bald eagle to a hanging trapeze. These were some of the most invigorating experiences of my life.
10 Ways to Reclaim Your Self-Esteem
The way you feel about yourself impacts how and why you do everything in life. If you feel good about who you are, then what you do will be an outside reflection of your innermost thoughts and feelings. Contrary to popular belief, self-esteem is not something anyone or any accomplishment can give you. Just because people like you or you receive an award, does not mean that you will love and take care of yourself. Positive self-esteem comes from within and does not change because the scenery or circumstances change. To have esteem for something or someone is to regard highly or favorably. High self-esteem is relatively stable even when the forecast looks foreboding.
Our Life ? Our Choice
OK, maybe that's a bit of an overgeneralization but it applies most of the time. Basically, what I am saying is that we are what we are because that's what we've decided to be. We live where we live, do what we do and think what we think because that's we've decided to do. Yes, I understand that there are some illnesses and other stuff that happens that tends to force us into a particular mode of operation. But by the same token, how we function within our situation and how we deal with the things we need to deal with is always our decision.
