Where have I been?

I’ve been poking in and out of this blog for a while now. Why? Well, I’m working on my first book. So in between writing, blogging, working, and life, I’ve been quite busy… Subscribe to my feed for upcoming information on my book.

“Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.”
– Dale Carnegie

So what does this mean to me? Be conscious about what you focus on!

“If you doubt you can accomplish something, then you can’t accomplish it. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.”

Words to live by

Last week I posted a quote by Anthony Robbins and recommended his book, Unlimited Power. Ironically, I was cleaning up my inbox today and stumbled upon an e-mail I sent myself in June of 2006. The subject was “Words to live by”, and included the following excepts from Unlimited Power:

  • There’s no such thing as failure. There are only results! or an outcome….
  • Your belief will become your reality! The brain will do what it’s told!
  • Human behavior is the result of the state we’re in. Your state is the result of your internal representations and your physiology.
  • How you’re feeling is not the result of what is happening in your life-it is your interpretation of what is happening.
  • Successful people are willing to do W.I.T (Whatever It takes).
  • Belief in failure is a way of poisoning the mind.
  • Belief can turn on or shut off the flow of ideas.
  • John Stuart Mill once said, “One person with a belief is equal to a force of ninety-nine who have only interest”.
  • When we congruently believe something is true, it is like delivering a command to our brain saying how to represent what is occurring.
  • “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” -William Shakespeare

You’d think I co-authored the book the way I’ve been talking about it so much. I’ve always been pretty big on reading/listening to leaderhip and personal development books. Maybe I’ll start adding some other “lessons” from different authors in the thoughts section of this blog.

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing, it’s when you’ve had everything to do and you’ve done it!” – Margaret Thatcher

We are most satisfied when we set out goals for ourselves and achieve them. For me, I can’t sit idle–I have no satisfaction in non-productivity.

“It’s not what’s happening to you now or what has happened in your past that determines who you become. Rather, it’s your decisions about what to focus on, what things mean to you, and what you’re going to do about them that will determine your ultimate destiny.” – Anthony Robbins

If you’ve never read “Unlimited Power” by Tony Robbins, I highly recommend it. I will tell you that it’s pretty long and you may find some chapters that can stand as their own books, but overall it contains some exceptional material. In life, we form perceptions about reality and our future based on our personal beliefs and experiences. Tony talks about how we have absolute control over our future and can make situations better, not by focusing on the negative, but by challenging our beliefs and changing our perceptions.

Thomas H. Huxley

Try to learn something about everything and everything about something.
–Thomas H. Huxley

This quote is vital to professional and personal growth. Try to take time daily to learn something new. In our complex environments, we must be versed on a multitude of disciplines–not just one.
