Freedom and Growth Between the Lines Are you a fun-loving, carefree person who prefers to drift with the wind? Are you happier following the rules and staying within the lines? Whichever you are, happiness and success will arrive when you combine both: 1) Too much flexibility in life doesn’t allow for compounding your life experience. Like money in the bank, leave it alone once you know what works. 2) Too much structure will limit your ability to discover growth opportunities. Don’t get stuck. Donnie and Marie said it best in the ’70s, “I’m a little bit country, he’s a little bit rock and roll.” Combine the best of both.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Are You Comfortably Miserable? Are you living a life of comfortable misery? It's easy to settle into day-to-day that is different from what you want. It's not bad. It's not good. Are you making barely enough income to be comfortable but still struggle? Is your job okay but not inspiring? Are your relationships fine but not fueling your dreams? Most folks are living comfortably miserably. Don't let that be you.  Change your path now. Decide to accept nothing less than exactly what you want. Stand up, take a step, and repeat. The rest will work itself out. That's a promise. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Blow Things Up With Creative Destruction Do you ever feel like a thousand things must line up before you can get what you want?  It is safer to wait until the stars align before taking your next step toward your goals. Maintaining momentum can also be exhausting — if not impossible. Another choice is to blow things up, tear things down, and blast away what you don't want using Creative Destruction. Think of 'creative Destruction' as renovating an old kitchen. Instead of spending months on futile repairs, remove what's obstructing your path and create a direct route to your dreams. Don't accept what is stopping you. Turn on your creativity and figure out a way to sidestep the problem. Start to build something new. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Standing In Cement?

Standing In Cement?


Standing In Cement? If you’re going to drive across a bridge, it’s best if there is a solid foundation on both sides.  The same happens when crossing a symbolic bridge to the next chapter in your life. Having a solid foundation on both sides is the goal.  But what happens when you get stuck in your foundation before you cross?  It’s common for folks to build such a solid foundation in their current life that it becomes difficult to move forward.  You are stuck in your comfort zone. If you’re happy, the bills are paid, and everything is okay - what’s the incentive to shake things up? Well - The only way to live the life you’ve always wanted is to believe in your WHY and take your first step as soon as you can see the other side. Yes, it can be scary. However, staying where you are for the rest of your life is also scary. Keep what you have and get what you want. That’s the goal.   Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Life With No Limitations and No Consequences What if everything you did today came with no limitations and good consequences?  What could you do with your life? Limitations can be helpful. Staying within speed limits keeps you from getting tickets. That's good. Limiting yourself to a job that doesn't serve you? That's bad.  Fear of change usually creates limitations. Or is it the fear of bad consequences?  What would happen if all consequences were good?  Asking someone on a date may cause fear and hold you back. That all goes away the instant you hear, "Yes!" Reach for the good! Roll through your day believing that you are ten feet tall and bulletproof.   Anything is possible!

Focus on What’s Important Are you the kind of person who is always running around putting out fires—fires you set?  I think it is time we took away your matches and lighter fluid. Keep these tips in mind: 1) If your life is non-stop drama, stress, and craziness, there is a good chance that YOU are the cause. There is also a good chance you won’t see it that way. 2) Living with your hair on fire will keep you so busy you will spend years wondering why you can’t get what you want. 3) When you STOP doing anything that results in more craziness, you will find that life is pretty quiet. That’s when good stuff begins to happen. It’s a Universal truth.  You are 100% in charge of every action you take. Choose good ones. It makes life more fun. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Accepting Your Passion

Accepting Your Passion


Accepting Your Passion No matter what activities that you do in life, the goal of every road you travel should lead to happiness. After all, we don’t pursue ambitions so that we can be unhappy - right? With that in mind, your journey will be more pleasant and the outcome more predictable if you: 1) Begin by accepting WHO you are right now. It’s okay to desire change, but you begin where you are today. 2) Clearly understand WHAT you are doing when you are authentically being YOU. The core of who you are is not likely to change. More likely, you are seeking to get back to your real self. 3) Decide when you will start living your passion day-to-day. There’s no need to wait. It begins the instant you choose. Accepting your passion and deciding to make it a day-to-day reality will make today the best day of your life.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Opportunity Discrimination Do you have too many options and are having a difficult time choosing? There is a concept called "Opportunity Cost.” It is simply the value gained or the value lost in deciding what opportunities you will pursue.  I tend to focus on another question entirely - "Does an opportunity provide the fastest and most direct path for me to reach my goals?"  It's easy to look at almost any opportunity and justify a path, especially if you are being persuaded by someone else. It’s more difficult to make a choice. If you want to break free from a stalled life, you must eliminate anything that takes you off course and stay focused on your goals.

What's Your Long Game?

What's Your Long Game?


What's Your Long Game? Many years ago a friend passed along a pearl of wisdom that has served me well. Larry was a business person and mentor. I was an eager young man who wanted everything now. That's when Larry said -  "Scott, sometimes you have to hang around long enough for folks to see that you are the real thing before they'll do business with you." He was right. Over the years I've learned that amazing results can happen quickly through hard work and focus. The best results seem to arrive once you have proven yourself to others through over time. What's YOUR long game? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Listening to Yourself First Growing up, I was an energetic, enthusiastic, and excitable child. I never let a day go by without challenging something - usually with my mouth. Thanks to those responsible for turning me into a good person, I learned a valuable lesson when they said- “Listen twice as much as you speak. You have two ears and one mouth for a reason.” You’ve heard that before, and in today’s fast-paced world, knowing when to put a zipper on your lips is critical. But I’ve also learned to take that advice to a new level to get what I want. I call it going “Dark.” When you go “Dark,” you have chosen to listen to others less. Yes, you are still listening, caring, and interacting with those around you. You’ve decided to listen to yourself twice as much instead. The world we live in today makes it seem as though it’s impossible to get what you want without others. There are endless hours of interacting, Googling, ZOOMing, Texting, and more. It’s as if we’ve lost permission to think and do for ourselves. We can’t move forward without the social approval of those around us when the exact opposite is true. Something extraordinary happens when you give yourself space to listen to yourself more. Your creative mind and talents flourish—your positive energy rebounds. You feel more present and find more meaning in your life. Going “Dark” makes your life brighter, and good stuff happens. When you take the time to slip away into your own space, you develop into the person you were meant to be.  Removing yourself from the buzz of the world gives you a new kind of energy. And you do it without anybody’s permission or without anybody knowing.  When you emerge, everybody will notice that you are different. They will listen when you speak, seek your advice, and be attracted to you in a new way.  Who knew that listening twice as much as you speak works even better when you listen to yourself twice as much as you listen to others?

4 Types of Clarity You Need Understanding what you want in life is the foundation of all success. There are four types of Clarity: 1) Clarity of Purpose: Knowing what drives your heart and soul is the fuel that will propel you to your dreams. 2) Clarity of Task: What tasks fulfill your purpose? Knowing will reduce stress and create daily satisfaction. 3) Clarity of Process: Ritualistic and consistent dedication to your proven process leads to happiness. Learn what works. Do more of it. 4) Clarity of Outcome: Know what prize you are seeking, and always keep your eye on it. When it comes to understanding what you want in life, I believe in the power of simplicity. Simple works. It's the key to unlocking the 4 types of Clarity that lead to success.   Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Steps to Achieve Greatness Do you dream of greatness? Instead of rushing through life, why not change your mindset and actions? It's time to become the person you were meant to be.  Here are a couple of ideas: 1) Use your imagination to form images, thoughts, and sensations in your mind. You don't need anybody's help. Trust yourself. 2) Enthusiasm is living life with excitement and PASSION. Only involve yourself in activities that make you enthusiastic.  3) Persistence is the art of doggedly persisting until you get what you want. Stay in the game long enough to get what you want. 4) Having faith means living your life with trust and confidence - even when you're unsure. Imagination. Enthusiasm. Persistence. Faith. That's a great life. Now, imagine how good it could be with Gratitude. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
How to Make the Law of Attraction Work for You I've always believed the Law of Attraction should be called Law of What You Think About Most. Like attracts like. What you think about, you get.  If you think, "I won't get it because I never do" - you are correct. Dreaming of a new life while focusing on your current problems is a sure way to keep spinning your wheels. The trick is to focus your attention and actions on what you want to attract. That will require a dedicated effort. Vision Boards, lists of Goals, daily journaling are all great ways to stay on track.  The Law of What You Think about is magical and straightforward — Decide what you want. Believe it is possible. Focus on the future, not the past. Don't stop until you get it. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Starting Over

Starting Over


Starting Over  What actions would you take if forced to start over again? Here’s what I would do: 1) Get absolute clarity and focus. What ONE thing do you want your life and lifestyle to be? 2) Confirm your WHY. Success takes time. Long-lasting success isn’t guaranteed. Owning a strong WHY will allow you the flexibility to persevere forever. 3) Clear the clutter. You can’t move forward with the weight of your past on your shoulders. Debt? Bad relationships? Health issues? Fix them and move on. 4) Take control of your schedule and your time. Of everything you own, time is your most valuable asset. Don’t squander it. 5) Massive Imperfect Action. You will never be stuck as long as you keep shaking the trees. Do something. Anything. Notice your results. Do it again. Do it until you get what you want. It’s not about learning more. It’s about taking control of the basics and using what you already know. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
How to Discover What's Blocking You If you find yourself spinning your wheels, remember this -  You must know where you are before going where you want to be. It's time to inventory your life as it exists today.  Examining your finances, jobs, relationships, responsibilities, and dreams for a few hours can be eye-opening. It's also the only way to deal with many of the demons that hold us back. It can be scary to dig into the dark corners of your life. But I promise, when you shine a light on everything you don't want to see, you'll find yourself free and able to move toward your dreams. I'll repeat it. You must know where you are before going where you want to be. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Caring What People Think is Holding You Back Do you know anything about other people?  Not a week passes without us hearing about somebody who did something out of character and caught us off guard. The truth is, none of us know about anybody else, and nobody knows about us. So, have you ever wondered how this knowledge can empower you? Are you dreaming of doing something different? Do you have a case of "Whatwilleverybodythinkaboutmeitis?"  It's time to get over it. Nobody in the world knows your true inner self. They only see what you present. If you're getting pushback, it's because of what you've been presenting. Change that, and everything else changes.

It’s Time To Be a Good Quitter Has anybody ever said to you, "it's good to be a quitter?” Probably Not. That’s why it’s so important today that you pay attention today. Being a good quitter isn’t an excuse. It should never be an option for making things easier. Instead, quitting is a wise choice. You choose to quit when your progress has you going around in circles or has stopped. That's when things get interesting. Once you are committed to an idea that is important to you, can be difficult to allow yourself to quit. Stuck in a lousy job, terrible relationship, destructive behavior? Your internal sense of "Identity" will compel you to hold to the very end. That may not be wise. Listen closely when your inner-voice begins to sound a warning. There's no need to wait for the inevitable. Trust your gut and change your direction fast. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Stand Up, Take a Step, Repeat Recipe It's the world's most straightforward recipe for success: Stand up, take a step, REPEAT!  A member wrote asking how to use such simple advice best: 1) Stop whatever you are doing. Find a place where nobody will interrupt you for at least 5 minutes. 2) Focus on YOU. 3) Ask, "How is my life going?" Open your mind and let your thoughts flow to the different roles of your life. Bring them into focus. 4) For areas going well, continue your momentum. For areas of concern, ask," What CAN I do to make it better?" 5) Immediately take action based on your answers. Never stop. 5-minutes a day is all it takes to stay on track. Check in with yourself. Adjust. Keep moving.   Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
How To Create More Time

How To Create More Time


How To Create More Time Wouldn’t it be great if you could create more time in your day without giving anything up?  The secret is how you prioritize the projects that are already on your plate. That requires a simple understanding: 1) Working on multiple products simultaneously only delays completing all the projects. 2) When you complete a product, not only is it off your plate, but it begins producing the expected results. This frees up time to move on to your next project. The next time that you are trying to find more time, ask - “What can I finish right now that will give me more time tomorrow - and every day after that?” You will love how much more time you have in your day.

Happier No Matter What

Happier No Matter What


Happier No Matter What Would you like to be happy every day of the week? Maybe it's time to start thinking like a happy person. There's no magic to being happier. Rose-colored glasses are not required. Just start looking at your day-to-day life the way a happy person does. Give this a try: 1) Accept that merely being alive means encountering occasional challenges. 2) Realize that dealing with challenges is a privilege that comes with being alive. 3) Welcome frustration. That means that you are not satisfied and are beginning to make adjustments. 4) Accept responsibility for solving your challenges. Run forward and fix them as soon as possible. 5) Deal with everything that life throws at you. Get a great night's sleep. Have another great day tomorrow. It's amazing how that kind of mindset makes most challenges never show up in the first place. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
