Belief, conviction and commitment

All day we strive to get things done, to cross things off the To-Do list and all to be repeated the next day. But have you ever thought about those who turn up daily with unusually high amounts of energy, optimism, self-discipline, persistence and courage? These people think, talk, walk and act differently — they have mastered the superpowers for success. How do you show up each day? Are you enthusiastic and driven or perhaps lacking a zest for life or some oomph? Some say that nothing great can be achieved without enthusiasm — it’s the key to attracting what you desire. In fact the energy that comes from enthusiastic people can be difficult to resist — their joy is contagious. You can receive a jolt of gusto just by being around these high energy people. They stay optimistic and when they get knocked down or rejected they get back up quickly. But what creates such success? There are three superpowers for gigantic success — powers that strengthen us in the face of our own or others’ pessimism, apathy, indifference, doubt, fear or tiredness and keeps our enthusiasm for life:  1. belief2. conviction3. commitment These superpowers allow us to push through to our desired…

Money is no guarantee for fulfilment

Think about those who have financial success and money for all the things they desire. Money certainly does bring some life satisfaction but it is not a guarantee of fulfilment. I’ve come across too many people who have lost sight of what they truly value as a result of chasing the almighty dollar. Many, even those with financial success, struggle at home and at work with: working long hours having too little personal time not having enough time for important relationships spare time being taken up with chores their guilt or exhaustion when there is finally time to relax.  So having wealth alone, without other important components, is not a sustainable definition for success.  What’s your definition of success? The definition of success is personal to each individual, but whatever success is to you it has to be aligned with what you value. For some people it’s to:  raise a happy family get to the top of their industry create financial independence be the best they can be and to be fulfilled For True Believers, success is living life according to their values. It’s about getting the things done that really matter and living a fulfilled and purposeful life that you…

How to drive your Mojo

There is no easy way to reach greater purpose and fulfilment, but finding your why, your purpose, brings fewer bumps in the road and more enjoyable scenery. Without having your why and what aligned, and without the powers of belief, conviction and commitment to drive you, your travels may lead to a dead end. And that’s where we lose our Mojo! For many, the first question is how? How do we create a picture of extraordinary business and life success. But is how really the first question? How is actually the second question. The first question should be why? Because having a compelling reason — having clarity around what you love, what you treasure and what is most important to you — is a massive step towards living a meaningful life. Our true values become our why. Once you have your why it’s about living that — making sure your why and your what are aligned.Have you ever lost the connection between your why and the what? When life is good they are all in alignment running in parallel paths. When there is a connection life rocks. But when your why separates from your what — when what you are doing and why you are doing it separate — then problems appear. Have you ever had them separate? It’s pretty painful when they do. Living with greater purpose and fulfilment is about keeping the why and what aligned….

Critical tipping points

An issue or a series of changes that become significant enough to cause a large impact defines a tipping point. Many in their lives will escape these critical points and remain content without much change. For some though, these tipping points, although often painful, can create the greatest positive transformations. Our lives can be:Uneventful – constant and steady, with little opportunity for growthEventful – varied and changing, with much opportunity for growth. And although at times I have craved constant and steady, I know that some of the greatest accomplishments and progress come from the events that shake us enough to cause a tip toward positive change. Think about those events throughout your life that had considerable impact – those major events that rocked your world – in a good or not so good way. These may be related to your health, to important relationships or even your wealth. Often these critical points hold considerable pain that can wake us up to the truth we have been ignoring and force us to make a few overdue decisions. Tipping points are common, just not talked about a lot. What we do in these challenging times is crucial to our success. The key is to make…
