That First Step To Massive Success
Do you ever procrastinate? So do I!
I had some work to do yesterday and I kept putting it off.
I thought to my self - IŽll wait until later when I feel more alert and in the right frame of mind to do it just right
Do you ever do this?
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks. If I wait for the perfect moment I will be waiting a very long time.
With that in mind I just got started. I took the pressure off and stopped insisting that I create a perfect piece of work.
The endless pursuit of perfection and the craving for total and complete success at everything you do is a trap.
A dangerous trap.
Because it will stop you from getting started. And beginning is sometimes all you need to do to ensure success.
When you get the ball rolling, the gathering momentum will keep you going.
Listen to this...
Last week - I read an interview with a world-class marathon runner who has run some grueling races including ones where he ran a marathon a day each day for a week or more at a time.
When asked how he could take on such enormous physical and mental challenges without feeling overwhelmed he gave a simple answer.
He said he never thinks about it in terms of running a 26 mile race instead he focuses on taking one step.
And then another, and another...
Take one step at a time.
Complete it and then take on one more step. Do this and you can achieve some spectacular results.

The Lies We Live By
How many times have you lied to get your way?
Motivation By Comparison
Motivation by comparison is a dynamic form of motivation which can totally transform our attitude of mind. It is used much too rarely. It is so powerful it could and perhaps should be used every day as a part of a morning ritual of preparation for the day ahead.

Greed and Selfishness: Knowing The Difference And Loving Yourself!
I hear many people discuss how selfishness leads to greed, or that being greedy is part of being selfish. I simply have to say that "greed" and "selfishness" are not the same things. These are "value words" and are based on ideas and information drilled into our heads when we were younger as something known as "basic morals."
The Easy Way To Lasting Self Motivation
Will power alone will never work over the long term. It is the hardest way possible to get yourself to do anything.
Life?s an Illusion
I'll get right to the point. Life is not necessarily what we think it is. And no, I'm not going to extrapolate this to the extreme to try to convince you that we really exist on some obscure planet in a distant spiral galaxy and that all of this we're experiencing as "Life" is only a dream. Of course, it is kind of cool to think that we could waking up any time now, wandering out to the kptfrun to put on the cuggy and then stepping out on the prafo to watch the bos rise and enjoy the sounds of the bilbs as they greet the morning. We naturally, would be all the more enlightened because of the dream experience of the previous night and could therefore anticipate an even more productive, enjoyable day at the Snark assembly plant. (Does excessive caffeine intake cause everyone to think weird stuff like that? Probably just me, huh?)

How to Exude More Confidence
Confidence: The word conjures up images of self-assurance and belief in ones' self. Self-confidence is inward security. It basically means that your source of security comes from within yourself, you're confident in your integrity to your own value system. It is not congruent with doubt or fear.
Trust Your Intuition!
How many times have you been faced with a decision to make and all of a sudden you get this feeling of instinctively knowing what you must do? Something inside you is telling you the difference between what you should do and what you are meant to do. Many people interpret this as a hunch, a gut feeling or having an inkling.

All Talk And No Action; So Let It Be Written; So Let It Be Done!
It is so important to know how to motivate ourselves in an effective manner and in a desirable direction. Throughout life we continually struggle between the dual forces of what we say and what we do. So, I ask you, what would you pay for a personal formula that would turn all your words into action?
Fear Emotions - Positive or Negative?
What is fear's purpose? How do you handle it? While I am working in my pest control business, I meet people on an almost daily basis who are influenced by negative fear thoughts regarding pests invading their premises. A good size spider, rat, or unexpected insect can set someone off pretty quickly, and literally immobilize them. It consumes their thoughts to the point where they have trouble thinking about anything else.
