  • Stick-to-it-ivity - Stubborness With A Purpose  By : Rashid Kotwal

  • Secrets of Success  By : Ken Keis
    "What I lack is to be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know... The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wished me to do... to find the idea for which I can live and die."
    -Soren Kierkegaard

  • Manifest Your Desires by Letting Go  By : Robert Thomson
    The first thing we learn about how to manifest reality is the value of focusing our emotions and the images we hold in our mind. It's critical, we are told, to focus vividly on exactly what we want and hold this intention both faithfully and joyfully at all times. This is an accurate explanation of how to get started.
  • Positive Attitude and Your Work from Home Business  By : workfromhome - chadsiemer
    As always, if you are beset by troubles, even in your darkest hour, focus on the good things in life, you will always have hope. Problems become something you can overcome.
    You do not have much to lose by adopting a healthy, positive attitude. Studies show that such an attitude actually retards aging, makes you healthier, helps you develop a better stress coping mechanism, and has a very positive effect on all the people you meet every day. So, what's not to like about a positive attitude? Adopt one today.
  • Who’s Taking Responsibility for Your Life?  By : Ken Keis
    Today’s society would like us to believe that our situation or anything else that keeps us from achieving our wants or desires is someone else’s fault. Of course, deep down we know this is utterly false. Responsibility is the high road; to not take responsibility means we can blame everyone but ourselves for our current circumstances.
  • The Real Laws of Attraction: Why Positive Affirmations Don’t Work!  By : Ken Keis
    In the past couple of years, several books on the subject of Attraction have been published. But recently some new thinking has been put forth to refute some of the past motivational dogma.

    Do you know individuals who don’t achieve the levels they would like to or that every time they take a step forward, they seem to take a step back? I will outline a couple reasons why that might be happening
  • Are You Living Your Purpose?  By : Ken Keis
    As each of you read this article, take a moment to reflect on your life. What do you see? Do you see someone who has embraced life to its fullest?

    In conversations with friends, colleagues, and new acquaintances, I still come across many who are searching for their personal purpose or life direction. Especially the baby boomers, who, I have observed, want to move from success to significance in their lives. It is not as if their life is traumatized or currently unsatisfactory but clarity around their personal purpose seems to elude them

  • Is Your Life Easy?  By : Ken Keis
    Is your life a struggle and difficult or does it flow easily?

    I propose to you that life is not about difficult and hard. Unfortunately, some of us choose to make it that way through our belief system.

    The Western cultural norm of "everything has to be hard or achieved through struggle" does not have to be so. Who established the expectation that the value of life is reflected by the level of difficultly you experience while going through it? I want to suggest that we have, in many cases, been misled by this belief.

  • Self-Worth - Your Success Depends On It  By : Ken Keis

  • The Power of Vision  By : Ken Keis
    How do you feel about your future? Recently, I’ve been consulting for a couple of non-profit organizations. Both are at various stages of panic and demise, hence my involvement as an advisor. Both organizations lack leadership -- but more important, neither organization has a clear picture (vision) of the future; without a vision, they are perishing.

    So the question has to be asked: why do organizations perish without a vision?
  • The Power of Measurement  By : Ken Keis
    Our lives operate around measurements. Without them, we cannot function. Think about it -- even undeveloped countries use the rising of the sun and moon and the changing of the seasons as measurements.

    What about the modern world? Without measurement, our economies and lives would literally collapse. Everything is about measurement-- money, travel, time, age, weight, volume, temperature, stock indexes, etc.
  • Why Don’t You Teach The Way That I Learn?  By : Ken Keis
    I believe there are 4 primary learning styles and that each of us has preferences in our learning. (I’ll explain them in a moment.) In fact, many of you actually prefer multi modes or approaches to learning, depending on what you are learning. Now think about this for a moment . . . if this is true for you, isn’t it true for your children, colleagues, employees, or family and friends?
  • Ten Motivational Affirmations to change negative internal dialogues  By : Diane Corriette

  • Stop trying to motivate me! Part 2  By : Peter A Hunter
    If managers understood the role that their behaviour plays in demotivating their workforce then, instead of looking for ways to motivate staff they may be able to appreciate the difference it would make to performance if instead of looking for new ways to motivate people, they just concentrated on not demotivating them.

    It is cheaper, hugely more effective and takes minimal effort compared to the money, effort and lack of any discernable effect of the traditional approach to Motivation.
  • Stop trying to Motivate me - Part 1  By : Peter A Hunter
    Motivation is seen as something to be supplied to the workforce in discrete lumps by paid third party gurus.

    But most people are already motivated.

    It is what happens to them in the workplace that demotivates them.

    Why should a third party be paid to motivate the workforce when they return to exactly the same conditions that demotivated them in the first place.

    It is like washing the sheets until they are sparkling white then spreading them out on a muddy path to dry.
    This article explains the essentials of any successful motivation program.
