Today I wanted to share a little insight from a Kindle book I’m currently reading called “The 10X Rule” by Grant Cardone. As you may know, I’m an avid reader of personal development books and I always seem to gain a new insight and get a dose of inspiration from each new book I go […]

The Power Of Non-Interference

As we kick off a new year, there is an aura of excitement in the air. People feel more optimistic and renewed about the year ahead. I’ll admit I definitely get caught up in the “spirit” of the new year season. One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is a […]

Your Best Work Will Never Be Enough For Everyone

The title of today’s post may come across as more of a “demotivational” topic but hear me out because there is a powerful message within. In the following audio recording, I share some of my thoughts about the fact that as you grow in skill in ability, whatever your chosen field, no matter how good […]

Stop Hating If You Want More Success

Today’s message is a short, but important. You’ve probably noticed the overwhelmingly high amount of negativity that floats around the internet. Find a talented actor, musician, speaker or writer and the comments about their work is often riddled with “haters”. It is one thing to offer constructive feedback to help someone. But if you are […]

Cultivating Persistence

“Persistence is to the character of  man as carbon is to steel” — Napoleon Hill When I was first introduced to the world of personal development books and speakers, one of the very first lessons I learned was about the power of persistence. Whatever path you have chosen and whatever aspirations you may have, there […]

Keeping An Idea Journal

In the past I have discussed the idea of keeping a success log and a journal of your activities. Right now, I actually keep a total of 3 separate booklets/journals on the go. The first one is a daily journal where I write down my biggest insights, lessons learned, reflections on things that inspired me […]

Reconnecting To Your Wants In Life

Since this post is going live during the 2013 Christmas Holiday season, I thought it would be a good time to discuss the idea of personal “wants”. This is kind of like revisiting your youth and making a list for Santa Clause of all the things you wanted as gifts. Except instead of making a […]

Plan To Do Something Before You Know How

Every one of us has been guilty at some point of putting off something we REALLY wanted to do because it just wasn’t the right time or our circumstances weren’t right. Sometimes, this is simply the truth and we have to move on. But other times, the thing we WANT is actually a very real […]

Every Great Achiever Creates A Sense Of Certainty

Today I had an interesting call with some long time clients of mine and one guy in particular was talking about some upcoming plans to possibly build and launch an educational product about a topic he was very well versed in (something he had never done before). As the conversation went along, I quickly realized […]

Directing Your Thoughts To What You Want

Yesterday I was outside clearing the driveway and removing huge amounts of ice that was covering our cars after a pretty major ice storm. My son thought it looked fun so he decided to join me and play on the frozen surface while I finished what I was working on. As he was slipping and […]

Keeping Your Positive Habits Alive

I used to incorrectly assume that “getting into the habit” of doing something would be a permanent solution to removing negative habits in my life. In fact, there are books that even talk about the concept of doing something every day for 21 days is long enough to create a habit. The problem is… a […]

Get Comfortable Being Your True Self

Today I had a very enlightening coaching call with a new client and we got into a discussion about how some people are going to love what you do, while others won’t have the time of day for you. This is especially true if you produce work that is consumable by other people (bloggers, musicians, […]

Demand More From Yourself Than Anyone Else Could

The title of this post is based on a famous quote from pro basketball legend Julius “Dr. J” Irving when he said “I demand more of myself than anyone else could ever expect.” Just repeat this quote a few times to yourself while you imagine the incredible levels of success someone like Dr.J (or anyone […]

Work On Your Social Intelligence

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 […]

Have Something To Look Forward To

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 […]

Developing A Sense Of Mission In Your Life

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 […]

How Is Your Presence Is Impacting Other People?

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 […]

Take A Chance On YOU

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 […]
