Quit Pretending - You Have To Live Whats In You To Succeed
Some people, after they reach their mid and upper adult years seem to go through their lives just existing. Oh! They work at their jobs as best as they can. Some may even pursue higher positions in their jobs but they still don't seem to stay satisfied with whatever position they have. They are usually the ones just waiting until it comes time for their retirement.
For those of you in that ho-hum category let me say this. Quit pretending - you have to live what's in you to succeed. If you think you are doing the best job you can. Think again. Whether you realize it or not you have within you more talents than you would ever believe.
Why not discover your newfound talents and use them to enhance your life and those close to you for everyone's benefit. In today's world you can never be sure of the security of your career or your health. All of us know that today we are not sure if we'll be victims of downsizing or experience a major health problem.
In my case when I retired I was not only looking for a second income but also a way I could become beneficial to others. I never realized I had some writing talents until someone who thought I had that ability encouraged me. He even believes everyone has the ability to be an author and he helps them develop that talent.
I never really enjoyed the subject of English when I was in school. And I surely didn't enjoy writing compositions either. But I did enjoy writing my Ebook "Absolutely Senior." I think the reason I enjoyed writing it was because I wanted to share my stories how I changed careers, how I overcame difficulties and how I became successful as a sales rep and sales trainer.
Now the purpose of my ebook was not to brag about my successes. No, it was written for the purpose of giving other people encouragement to strive for a more purposeful life. It reveals how I was able to become a more vibrant and successful person and how everyone else can do the same.
Why not give some serious thought about your own life right now. Could you discover some talents in your life that have become dormant over the years? Do you believe if you could restore some of them and make them active again you could create and stimulate more excitement in your own life and the lives of others too? I believe you could. Why not try it?
Not sure how to go about it? Well here's some ideas I used to help myself and my sales staff to accomplish more successes in our lives. These ideas helped me and them to discover hidden talents that we hadn't even thought about for a long long time.
Here's a step-by-step method that I used and taught to accomplish this.
(1) Find a time and a quiet place where you can relax and
think (my lounge chair was always the ideal spot for
me) The important thing to remember is to get as
relaxed as you can and in as quiet a place as you can
find. Also keep a note pad, pen and/or pencil nearby.
(2) Close your eyes and start reminiscing about the past.
Hopefully you will think about pleasant things. If
unpleasant things appear don't dwell on them for too
long. (However some of them might be beneficial if
they taught you're a valuable lesson)
(3) Now start zeroing in on the thoughts and moments in
your life that could be beneficial in developing a "New
You" (WOW! A "New You") How would you like that?
Let me tell you that you won't know how great that feels
until it happens to you.
(4) OK When you start getting some ideas that you feel are
beneficial or could inspire your life more write them
down on your note pad. Don't be too critical at this
time about the ideas that come to you, just write down
whatever ideas come to you first. Spent as much time
doing this step for as long as it keeps you interested.
(5) This is sorting out time now. So look at all the ideas
you've written down. Start checking off the ones that
seem to get you excited or inspired the most. (I suggest
you narrow it down to no more than six ideas).
(6) Alright now do this: Look at each of those six ideas
(or whatever number you came up with) and dwell on each
one to get the most vivid picture you can imagine. Also
think of ways to apply them. Now pick only one idea
you want and start working on it immediately while it's
still fresh in your mind. Put every effort into it to
make it a reality. Then don't ever let anyone or anything
destroy your dream to succeed.
By applying this simple 6-step formula you'll be able to see if you really are interested in creating a "New You." Why not start now and quit pretending that you are doing your best job of living a fulfilling lifestyle. You need to remember, "You have to live what's in you to succeed." And you want to know something? Whatever is in you may want to desperately get out in the open and start working!

Lego Laws for Life
Just about everybody owns or has owned a bucket of Legos in their time. There's no denying the fun they provide for a child or even for an adult, which is why, many Lego collections are passed down from one generation to the next. These brightly colored blocks of joy serve to challenge our creativity and our imaginations. They act as an empowering influence on our lives in that they almost beckon us to transform them into anything we want or can imagine.

Face Your Fears
Yes, that's me up there! Interestingly enough, I used to be deathly afraid of heights. I'm not suggesting para sailing is the best way to overcome a fear of heights but it worked for me. Sometimes, the only way through a fear is to meet it head on. That's what I did in this case.

The Reason Nothing Happens - Is Because Nothing Is Happening!
I hear many clients declare how boring and stagnant their lives have become. As they disclose their concerns, the answer usually bubbles near the surface, but never quite makes it to the top. However, after a few minutes, I usually ask, "What are you doing to re-energize your life?" The most common answer is, "I dunno what to do!" Ah, the answer to the problem in itself!
How to Eat an Elephant
I recently returned from a wonderful vacation in the U.S. I spent some time with my family, visited some friends, and spent three weeks in Alaska, climbing Mt. McKinley. Mt. McKinley, or Denali, is the highest mountain in North America. Before I started the climb, I asked a climber who had just flown off the mountain if he had any last-minute advice. "Climb one day at a time," he said wisely.

If The Fear Fits...Dont Wear It!
Undoubtedly one of the most challenging tasks we can face everyday is fighting the fear of failure. At one time or another every single person has had to face the fear of stepping out into an unfamiliar area and leaving his comfort zone and entering the twilight zone.
Get Up and Do!
The motivation to change my oil came the other day when I turned the key in my car's ignition. It coughed wearily, and there was an ominous clicking sound where the engine should have chimed in. Then there was a brief flashing of several lights on the dash. One of them was the oil light, and I sat behind the wheel for a minute, realizing that even if I had extra motor oil on hand, I've no idea where it goes.
Information Age: Knowledge is King
In our information age, having the right knowledge at the right time can make the difference between failure and success. Knowledge, gained through experience makes one an expert in any field.
A Quick Observation of the Low Class
We can all learn a valuable lesson about the types of behavior and attitudes to avoid like the plague, simply by observing the characteristics of people we all know are low class. Being low class is not a function of the lack of money or social status. I've seen rich people and those high on the social ladder who were very low class. I've also observed folks who were living below the poverty level and low on the social scale who were very high class people. It also has nothing to do with race or ethnic background. Instead, being low class is strictly a matter of behavior and attitudes.

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."
For Those Who Have Suffered!
As one who has suffered from the long, term effects of trauma I feel compelled to share some experience and hope with those who seek to heal themselves and create true quality of life.
