One aspect of achieving success in life that many people never think about or discuss is the idea of social intelligence. In his book, Mastery, Robert Greene defines social intelligence as “the ability to see people in the most realistic light possible”. In other words, social intelligence is all about reading other people and figuring […]

This past weekend we took a fun family trip to Great Wolf Lodge in Niagra Falls, Ontario. It was a weekend full of waterslides, games, eating out and staying up late (for both my wife and myself AND the kids). It was a blast. The trip had been in the works for quite some time […]
I’m sure you know people who are highly motivated and driven. It seems that no matter what they work on, whether it is a task in their job/business or doing something around the house, that there is a sense of purpose and “mission” to what they do. They want to do their very best and […]
This is a potentially life changing question to ask yourself. As someone who sets a lot of goals and works diligently to achieve them, I sometimes get into tunnel vision being hell bent on getting to my desired result. And for the longest time, the only goals I set were tangible/measurable “outcome based” goals. Things […]
One of the most effective methods for changing or improving your thought patterns, and in turn improving your behavior/habits, is to study and emulate people who have qualities of character you wish to have for yourself. I have studied hundreds of inspiring people from athletes to authors to business people and political figures and many […]
For a long time I believed in and followed the philosophy of “develop your strengths and outsource your weaknesses”. The basic idea is that the more you focus on doing the things you enjoy and that come naturally, the more successful you will be. The problem, like anything else in life, is when you follow […]
Many of the best insights I have gained over the years have often been counter intuitive. For example, as I have been developing muscular strength with a rigorous weight training program, I have found that I can push more weight and complete more sets when I relax and calm myself mentally before and during each […]
In this video update I talk about a drastic transformation I have gone through over the past year+ that has allowed me to create long term changes and create more positive habits after YEARS of trying and failing.
One of the hardest things for me to watch is when I see someone who is trapped in a prison of their own making, unwilling to take control of a situation or make a change. The most common and obvious example of this is someone who continues to work in a job or a particular […]
I’m a big believer in coaching and mentoring. I have had a number of great coaches and mentors in my day. Some were people who simply helped me as a friend. Other times I hired professional coaches to help me with specific areas of life or business. If you have never looked into or thought […]
Today’s post is day 74 of a 100 day motivational content challenge I’ve been working on. And I find it quite fascinating that as each day goes by, something interesting or important happens in my life to give me the exact inspiration I need for a new motivational post. Over the past day or so, […]
For over 5 years, I have spent countless hours reading, researching and studying self improvement methodologies and concepts. There have been so many books and speakers who have had a positive impact on me and there is really no way to summarize everything that I have gained through their works. But a common question I […]
One of the most difficult things to do for most people, is to admit that they have been wrong about something. For example, I have tried and failed a significant number of business ideas on my journey to become an entrepreneur. All of the failed ideas seemed amazing when I first started, but even when […]
One thing I am notoriously guilty of is being way too hard on myself. I’m guessing you can relate 🙂 For those of us who demand excellence and constant improvement from ourselves, it can be easy to forget how far you have come, how much skill you have developed and how many great things you […]
In today’s audio update, I share kind of a bizarre story of an incident I witnessed a number of years back. This particular event has stayed with me and I often think about it when things happen to me in my life. Especially events that I didn’t really want… I use this story as a […]
Think back to a time where you were going through something pretty rough. You were taking a big emotional hit and your stress levels were through the roof. Maybe someone was upset with you, you made a BIG mistake or you did something that caused you to feel complete embarrassment. You didn’t know how you […]
Big Goals. Large Visions for your life. Any major success you want to obtain… Is probably going to take a lot longer than you anticipate when you start the journey. Its just human nature. We get a good idea about something we want to be, do, have and the idea captures our minds and emotions. […]
I’m always hesitant to mention the topic of goal setting because it seems like one of those topics that people have had enough of. But goal setting has always been and will always be a cornerstone principle of success. One thing I recently learned about goal setting are that there are different “types” or categories […]
