Is there something you would like to change about your life? Stop smoking, lose weight, get a better job? No matter what you choose, you will always climb the steps of change. Stage One: Known as Pre-contemplation. This stage appears when an idea pops into your head for the first time. Stage Two: Contemplation. This middle ground is where most folks get stuck. It can go on for a lifetime. Stage Three: Determination. You’ve made up your mind and begin preparing for what is to come. Stage Four: You get started. You are in action mode. There is no turning back. Stage Five: Maintenance mode. Your job is to keep what you have. This stage may also last your entire life.

It's the world's simplest recipe for success; Stand up, take a step, REPEAT!  A member wrote asking the best use of that simple advice: 1) Stop what you are doing. Block out everything. Focus on YOU. 2) Find a place where nobody will interrupt you for 5 minutes. 3) Ask yourself, "How is my life going?" Open your mind and let your thoughts flow into the different areas and roles of your life. Bring them into focus. 4) For things 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. Checking in with yourself 5-minutes a day is all it takes to stay focused and on track toward your goals.

Are you spending your day chasing checkmarks? Are you trying to finish your never-ending to To-Do List? Most people tend to add to their list without thinking much about it. Then they check their list to remind them how much they haven’t done. That will ruin your day. A better way is to think of your list as “Did-I-Do-It-List.” While it may seem the same, there is an important difference. Instead of feeling bound to your list, your new mindset is simple. Check your list to make sure you did what you planned. I’ll let you decide. Are you less stressed when you try to keep up with life? Or are you less stressed when you see how much progress you have made?

Growing up, sure can get in the way of your dreams. It’s sad how so many goals get pushed aside for daily responsibilities.  Think about this - When you were 16, the only freedoms you enjoyed were what your parents allowed. When you grow up, you have total freedom and complete control. If you could live today like you were 16, it might look like this - You would go to school and educate yourself. Your friends would be real friends. Not just people you met at the office. You would dream about your future. You would be excited about what was to come in life. You wouldn’t be allowed to drink. Your mind would be clear. You would embrace having fun for the fun of it. You couldn’t and wouldn’t get in debt. You would sleep. A lot. The job you have today would have felt like a prison. Does it? You would busy yourself all day with LIFE. You don’t have to 16 again. But imagine how much fun you could have if you knew then…what you know now… and used it all today?

What if every day, for the rest of your life, was perfect? Your subconscious mind is a beautiful thing. You can engage its power to design your life to be exactly how you imagine. Here’s how: 1) Write down an event-by-event vision of what your perfect day would be. Yes, it’s a fantasy - for now. 2) There are no rules. No limitations. No consequences. Don’t be shy. Be honest about what you want. 3) Believe it can be yours! You deserve it. If you follow these steps, your sub-conscious mind seeks ways to make your dreams come true. All it needs is a partner willing to take action. Do that, and you’ll create a fantastic life.

In the movie “City Slickers,” Mitch was on a mission to find purpose - as if there was a single solution for everybody.  That’s when he met a cowboy with simple yet straightforward advice - Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger] This. Mitch: Your finger? Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that, and the rest don’t mean &*#@. Mitch: But, what is the “one thing?” Curly: That’s what you have to find out. Most folks spend their lives searching outside themselves while what’s important quietly rages inside of them.  Most happily move through their day with little or no thought.  But the search continues - until they finally figure Curly’s secret - The ONE thing is different for everybody - and it’s far less exciting and easier to find than you think.

Have you ever wondered how to change the direction of anything in your life? If Where you live, your job, your relationship? It doesn’t matter where you are or where you want to go.  The process is the same. And it doesn’t require dramatic contortions in your life to make it happen. It’s simple. You have arrived somewhere, and you want to go somewhere else.  Even if you don’t know how you got where you are, point yourself in a general direction and start taking action. You’ll figure it out. The path from somewhere to somewhere else also includes stops somewhere along the way. What happens is you don’t like where you are? Remember that somewhere will always lead to somewhere else. You’ll get there eventually. One more thing - On your journey to somewhere, you will be doing lots of somethings with lots of someones. That’s what makes it fun.

Have you noticed how everybody is running so fast these days? Are they living in the moment? Are they dwelling on the past? Are they dreaming of the future - and waiting for it to arrive? Any human would experience a combination of all three every day. That's normal as long as it doesn't get in the way of living. A decade ago, my first wife passed away from Cancer. She was 46 and too young to die. I was too young to be a widower. My children too young to lose their Mom.  While challenging, our family had an unconventional outlook on life - and death. In fact, our goal was to make it the best death ever. Sadly, we achieved that goal.  It was the strangest accomplishment any of us had ever experienced. After she passed, my daughter, Carlyn, wrote a poem that resonates to this day - Soon we'll all find our way. Soon we'll know what. Makes us who we are. Soon we'll wake up. To a day we can appreciate. Soon we'll know that. Tomorrow we'll be better. Soon we'll trust that everything's okay. That the past is gone. Can't hold us back. Soon we'll smile about today. Soon will come too soon. Don't let it slip away. Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future. Don't let it slip away.

It seems everybody is obsessed with Time Management. Who do we think we are? The Boss of Time? The truth is, there is not one person on this planet who has the power to manage Time. No matter how strong you are, Time will not bend to your command.  Whether you sit around and do nothing or push hard toward your goals, Time will remain constant. What you can manage is YOU. The most successful, relaxed, and happy people understand that it’s up to them to bend themselves to fit Time. They hold space in their life: 1) Always decide in advance the essential activities you will be doing and when you will be doing them. Focus on actions that must get done and will drive you forward.  2) A week in advance, create sacred blocks on your calendar. Choose the activities that will fill the blocks. 3) No matter what gets in the way, keep your appointment with yourself. Complete your activities in the assigned block. Walk away. Follow this simple recipe and you will always be a week ahead. You will be locked into your momentum building plan. You will make never-ending progress.

Do you ever feel like you are procrastinating? What if I were to tell you that you are not, and there is an easy fix. It’s hard to tell how many dreams have are being crushed from the inability to get things done. Procrastination is nothing more than a distraction from current life conditions. Decide that your current circumstances are no longer acceptable, you stop procrastinating. What if there was something deeper? What if you were filling your day with non-stop activities in preparation to reach your goals?  But it feels like you are procrastinating?  You are not, and one day, when you’re ready, you will begin.  You are distracted, happy in your toiling, and filling yourself with growing frustration.  You are not procrastinating; you are Fixin’ to get ready.” You’ll know you are Fixin' when you are working toward your goals yet feel like you can’t get momentum to get started. You are not procrastinating. You are waiting to reach the starting line. Fixin’ happens when you get caught up in details and become overwhelmed. The solution is to simple. Forget the big picture. Choose a starting point.  Begin.  If you are procrastinating, STOP IT. If you are fixin’ to get ready, STOP IT. There is no try. There is only do. Thanks, Yoda.

Whatever you get in life is a result of your daily habits. What is a habit? According to the dictionary, it is a settled or regular tendency or practice.  It is also something that is especially one that is hard to give up. Good habit or bad - they are hard to give up. If that’s the case, you may as well choose good habits. In a survey of 233 self-made millionaires, here’s what they did that lower-income earners didn’t - Get up early, read, a LOT, spend 15 - 30 minutes each day on focused thinking. Good habits, done daily, create success. Made exercise a priority, spend time with people that inspire them, pursue their own goals. Settled habits create settled success. Get enough sleep, have multiple incomes, avoid time-wasters. If you’re not getting the results you want, there is a high likely hood that you are not giving up your current habits. Until you establish new habits, little will change. When you do, everything will change.

People have always sought change for themselves, their life, or the world. If you want to change, there is a constant truth; you must change before anything else changes. Many smart folks agree - Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” Leo Tolstoy, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” What about Albert Einstein?  “The world, as we have created, is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” Do you want to change something about today, tomorrow, or the future?  You must change before anything else changes. Have you learned lessons from past experiences?  You have already changed, and your future is better for it. Rumi said, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” If tomorrow you want to be better than today and yesterday, something has to change. That something is you. If you want to make more money, serve more, and be happier next year, something has to change this year. That something is you. If you want this life to be well-lived, something has to change today. That something is you. What if you want everything about your life to be perfect? Listen to Winston Churchill. “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” It’s so simple.  You Must Change Before Anything Else Changes.

I was speaking with a young man at the gym. He made a comment that made me twist my head sideways like one of my curious Alpacas.  He said, “I’m working so hard to be a good leader. Here I am at the gym, and I’m spending all my time on the phone trying to get my team to be more productive.” I asked, “What is your team doing?” “Oh, some are working in the office and others with clients, but I know they can do more.” I don’t know about you, but that last thing that motivates me is to have somebody else, who is NOT working, tell ME to get to work. That’s what I said.  His response? “I am working. I must look good in my career. My staff should understand that.” Oh - I’m confident they understand completely. Leadership is more than LOOKING the part. It’s about BEING the part. If you are talking more than you are walking, you are not leading.

You’ve heard if you want success you must go after your goals with consistency and dedication. You must want it for yourself. More than anybody wants if for you. YOU are the engine that drives your dreams. Others will help, but in the end, your actions are the only thing that will lead to the reward. I remember when my kids got older. I had a talent for manifesting what I wanted in life, and my Son asked, “Dad, how do you always seem to create what you want?” I said, “YOU must make up your mind that you want it before you can get it. You are the engine that drives your dreams.” I had to laugh when he said, “Is that telling me to make my bed when I was a kid?” One more thing. Some people think when they reach their goals they can take a break.  Not so.  Permanent success does not come from temporary actions. Your real reward will be all the new opportunity that arrives in your life.  Everybody loves a winner. YOU are the engine that drives your dreams. Always remember that.

Have you ever found yourself working for hours while time flies?  You are doing what makes your heart sing! Some folks say, "Do what you love, and you'll never work another day in your life."  That's not true.  You will work harder than ever - and will love every minute of it. Your rewards will come like never before. It's easy to dream of a less complicated life when all you have ever done is live a complicated life.  That's not the issue.  When you realize that there are never enough hours in the day - and you don't care - nothing else will matter.

Removing Obstacles That Stand in Your Way Have you ever wondered how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to think so much? What if the future or your past didn’t matter? Imagine if you didn’t worry about the possessions, success, or drama of others? What would happen if you believed that YOU are in control?  Now you are starting to think like a Stoic Philosopher. Stoicism is about paring down and simplifying. They eliminate unproductive traits that define the majority of the population. One of the most common is by turning obstacles upside down, creating opportunities, and seeing them as teachable moments. For a Stoic, every bad thing becomes a new source of good.  Marcus Aurelius said it this way, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in your way becomes the way.”

How Happy People See The World   Did you know that happy people see the world differently?   They don't wear rose-colored glasses. They have a better way:   1) Happy people realize that being alive includes problems.      2) Happy people accept that challenges are a privilege.     3) Happy people get frustrated but don't give up. Problems mean everything is normal.   4) Happy people take responsibility for solving problems.    5) Happy people deal with everything life can throw at them, get a great nights sleep, and do it all over again.   Finally, when you think like a happy person, most problems never show up in the first place.

Life. Work. Balance. A long time ago, you found yourself graduating high school and thrust into real-life. I’m sure you gave lots of thought to your future. Then again, you were young. Twenty years later, things can look very different. Over the years, I’ve learned something about working for a living: 1) Chasing money, advancement, and being significant will keep you busy. It will also blind you from other areas of life you would enjoy. 2) Pursuing passion and mission without considering real-life is a recipe for frustration. Choose career opportunities that allow you to run fast, feel important, make money, and will enable you to serve your passion and mission.

Living in today’s GIG economy is changing lives for millions.  And, it's only going to get bigger - because it’s all about taking care of people.   Use this equation to open more doors in this new way of life: Problem + Cost = Opportunity.   Everybody has a problem that needs solving. Is it money? Time?Freedom?   Here’s how you convert problems into your success:   1) Recognize the problem that a customer, employee, friend, or family member is having.   2) Identify how much that problem is costing them. It could be financial or emotional.   3) Present a solution and show them how you will help them solve their problem and make the pain go away.   Everybody has challenges. When you can solve them, you create an opportunity for yourself.

You will get bumped and bruised, but, your parachute will open.   You must jump.   If you want success, you must jump to your dreams so your parachute will open.

No Limitations. Good Consequences.   What if everything you did came with no limitations and good consequences?     Limitations are useful. 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.    Is it fear of change that creates limitations?   Is it the fear of adverse consequences?   Imagine what you could do if you never limit yourself, and all the consequences were good?   Exciting - right?   I think you should roll through your day with that in mind. Believe that you are ten feet tall and bulletproof.   I bet the Universe will prove you right.

While it may be over 2,000 years old, its practicality is still useful.   I wonder if these steps will help you get more of what you want?   1. If you're going to learn and succeed, be humble. There is always someone smarter, more successful, and wiser.    2. Find the right scene. Choose your friends and situations. If you want to rise in life, you can’t allow yourself to be held down by others.   3. Protect your time. Seneca said, "We're tight-fisted with property and money, yet think too little of wasting time, the one thing about which we should all be the toughest misers." Life is short.   4. Never do anything out of habit. Always think about how you can do things better and always question yourself.   5. Keep it simple — do your job. Approach every task as if it were your last because it very well could be.   6. Adapt and learn from failure. Using your success to justify complacency is common. It's also easy, which is why most people do it. You can do more and be better.   7. Live below your means. The more you need work to maintain your needs, the less you will enjoy what you have.   Everything in life comes down, keeping things simple and mastering the basics. That's how you get the success you deserve.

Get the Coaching and Motivation you need to get what you want at MotivationToMove.com.   Starting Over For The Last Time   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 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.

Either is okay, but it sure helps to know which Role you play while you move toward your Goals. I remember talking with my Son after graduation. He had set his sights on becoming a Rock Star. Now, as a Dad who has BIG dreams and hard-won experience chasing them, I knew I had to give him perspective. So I asked - Are you willing to do what it takes to rise to the top? And if you don’t get what you want, will you be happy settling for life in the background? That’s when he said, “I wouldn’t be happy being a background singer.” He chased his dreams for a few years until he found a new passion that fits him like a glove. He may not be on stage, but he is a very big fish in a very big pond - and happy as a clam. You might call him a Rock Star! You will always get what you want if you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach your dreams. How bad do you want it?

Unless you live in a cave, effective communication is something you need to master to get what you want in life.   Have you ever been in a conversation and feel you are not being heard?   It's time to step around to their side of the table and see things from their point of view.   Everybody has a different way of hearing and processing conversation. If you consider alter your style to match how THEY communicate, you will both arrive on the same page.   Some people consider this to be giving up control. It's not.    When others can understand what you are saying, you gain control. It's no different than traveling to a foreign country and speaking in their language.    You don't need to change the content of your message.  You only need to adjust how you deliver your message to be effective.

Productivity Efficiency I think it’s time we stop seeking more productivity.  It’s too much work!  I prefer being more efficient and effective.  Here are a couple of ideas that will help: 1) Say, “No” to meetings if possible.  If you must, keep them short and sweet. 2) Delay paying attention to incoming communication.  It’s nothing more than somebody else’s to-do list.  Do your stuff first. 3) Daily interruptions will never go away.  You may as well expect and plan for them. 4) Never schedule more than 50% of your day.  That will give you more time for things that pop up. 5) No more multi-tasking. Finish one task before the next.  The fastest way to be more productive is to make your To-Do list as short as possible.

They get lucky! Maybe, but I think there is more to it.

Fast Path to Success
March 25, 2019
What if three words could allow you to communicate better and reach your goals faster?   Here’s how to stay on track no matter who wants to pull you off course:   1) When asked by others to help them reach their goals it’s time to agree and defer.  As an example, say, “Yes, I can help, AND let’s talk about it later when I finish what I’m doing.  Watch how folks leave you alone.   2) Inserting the word ‘Yet’ into any conversation will allow you to stay positive and keep your momentum. For instance, saying “Not yet.  I’ll let you know when I’m ready” will do wonders.   Success and happiness arrive when you stay focused and on track chasing your goals.  Prioritize yourself and defer others.

I'm sure you've heard the saying, "It's not WHAT you know, it's WHO you."   Collecting connections by networking and meeting people is something everybody does.  Most are hoping that someday, maybe, hopefully, those connections will lead to success.   Maybe.  Maybe not.   Most connections only lead to a desk full of business cards from people you don’t remember.  If you want a more immediate return on any contact, you need to ask one question -   “Will having a relationship with this person move me forward and closer to my goals?”   Focus your time and attention on people who will allow to you answer YES.  You’ll release yourself of a lot of frustration and succeed faster.   Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Simple Time Management

Do you ever wish you had a less complicated life?   If you are not flying an airplane or performing brain surgery  - you are likely overcomplicating life.   These rules will help you start the new week under YOUR control:   #1:  Practice the law of “Good Enough."  Perfectionism is over-rated.  It will waste years of productive time that you could use to enjoy life.   Rule #2:  Say “No” and repeat it.  Make that little two-letter word your default answer for everything.  Say “Yes” to what you love.   Rule #3 - Consider that everything in your life is over-complicating your life.  If in doubt, stop, drop, and roll on down the easier road.   Leonardo da Vinci said, ”Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”    Why not show everybody how sophisticated you are.

Mapping Your Success
January 21, 2019
The quality of your life is a direct result of your relationships.  Tony Robbins said that.   Whether it’s a personal, professional, or business relationship.  There are three ways to play the relationship game.  There is only one way to win.   1) All relationships begin with two independent individuals.  If you remain independent, you will never connect.   2) Some relationships become co-dependent.  Developing this kind of relationship means losing individuality.  Isn't that what attracted you in the first place?   3) The best way is to merge your skills, passions, and identity.  The result will be an interdependent relationship.    The strength of an individual.  The power of a team.  It doesn’t get any better than that.

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 you will run into 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 nights sleep.  Have another great day tomorrow. It's amazing how that kind of mindset makes most challenges never show up in the first place.

Characteristics of Success

Happy New Year!   As we begin a new year, I have a question for you.   What experiences will you have this year?   Life is all about the experience. That requires planning, awareness, and setting expectations.   As you go about setting and achieving your goals, be sure to pay attention to your focus. While you take action, shift your focus to the experience you desire. Life will be a lot more fun.   Isn't that what goal setting is all about?   Don't skip over the fun by jumping to the destination. Savor the journey in 2019.

Changing something about your life is pretty straightforward. Figure out what you want and change it.   Are you done laughing?   Most folks fall on the way to their dreams because they don't move, move at the wrong time, or run too fast. That's why, once you know what you want, it's time to build your bridge.   Here’s how:   1) Fortify your current foundation. Save money, pay bills, do whatever it takes to create a firm and peaceful base to build.   2) Begin constructing the foundation for your new life. Go to school, network, research, and plan. Do everything in your power to assure your success with no regret.   3) When you're ready, leave your past behind, cut off the old, and begin living your new life. Be patient. Wait until you are at least 70% ready to succeed before you cross to the other side.   Success arrives when you move from a strong TODAY to a stronger TOMORROW. Don’t leap too soon, but don’t delay either.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

Have you allowed yourself to become the person you are on the inside?   We all make decisions that change our life trajectory without much thought. That can lead feeling of being lost on you your life path.   Maybe it's time to create a new way of seeing yourself?   Using a Transitional Identity is a great way to feel confident when you can’t believe in your future.   The trick is to focus on the smaller steps on the way to your destination. That will allow you to move away from who you are, yet not jump to who you want to be in one big step.   “I’m running a successful small business and laying the foundation for my empire. All I have to do is keep moving.”   “I’m a great student. Very soon I will be a great teacher to others. All I have to do is keep moving.”   “I’m incredible at losing 1 pound at a time. Soon I’ll hit my goal and weight 100 pounds. All I have to do is keep moving.”   Transitional Identities are temporary and ever-changing. They are useful when destinations are hard to see before you take your first step.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

A big frustration for most folks is feeling as if other people are getting in the way. =   That will stop the very instant you begin to living according to your Values as you word toward your Goals:   Here's the simple recipe for enjoying every minute of the day:   1) Know, understand, and practice living your Values at all times. While it's not always easy, you will feel happier and in control.   2) Be sure only to set Goals that allow you to practice your Values along the way. Doing otherwise is not being who you are.   3) Prepare for a shock wave from people who wonder why you won't do things their way anymore. And, get ready for the peace of mind you will begin to feel.   Self-directing your life according to your inner-most thoughts is the ultimate power.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

How would you feel if every day, on average, was as you wanted?   It's time to make your dreams come true and create your “Average Perfect Day.”   Here's how it works:   1) Find a quiet spot and write a detailed description of your perfect day. Let your fantasies flow onto paper until you've mapped out morning until night.   2) Focus on your daily experiences, not material goods. In other words, if you want a sports car, focus on how you would feel in the driver seat.   3) Fight the urge to judge. The goal is to slow down, tap into your core, and get excited about what's possible.   There is one last rule that you must follow.   There are no limitations and no consequences. Let yourself be free to dream. You are going to be surprised at how many start coming true.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

  With a new year upon us, it’s time crank up those 2019 goals - simple way.   One of the easiest methods of achieving success is to stick to tried and true. That doesn’t mean you can’t move toward something more meaningful. It means that you forgo new knowledge and skill and leverage what you already understand.   No brainer success assumes:   1) You already have sufficient experience and wisdom. You will learn any new skill if, and only if needed.   2) You will choose the path of least resistance. The goal is to get the results you want in the fastest period. No distractions. No zig-zagging.   3) Overthinking burns too many brain calories. If you find yourself confused and stuck, accept that you may need to reevaluate your plan. Do it fast.   Human nature will compel you to clutter your success journey with distraction. Seek the direct route to the results you want. It’s a no-brainer.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

I have a favorite question; ”What Can I Do?"   I ask it anytime I am unsure about my next action.  It always delivers an answer.  But, this time of year, I add some awesome sauce; ”What can I do this year?"   It's time to put an end to random and vague goal setting. It's all about capacity, choices, and prioritizing your actions.  Since you can't do it all, at least at the same time, it's time to force yourself to get real about what is possible.   So, what can YOU do this coming year?   You might not reach all your goals in a month - but in a year?  I think you can do almost anything.   Looking for more?   The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.
