Six Months Left - Are You Getting There?

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.
~Abraham Lincoln~


At the beginning of each new year, millions of people make resolutions about areas in their life they want to change. At the start of  this year, if you are like most of us you thought about new experiences that would add to your quality of life and you said to yourself and to others, "this is the year to make these things happen".

Based on your results from the previous six months, are you getting there? Have you consistently taken the purpose-filled actions necessary to produce the incremental progress in the areas of your life in which you want to experience positive change?

We both know the challenges that come with wanting to be better, do better, and experience better in life.

We know that life doesn't standstill for perfect moments to happen... so that we can then make time for what we say we want to have in life.

If we really want to have what we say we want to have in this year and thereafter, there are certainly some best practices that we need to hone and begin to make our own.


Progress = Happiness

In this video, Tony Robbins shares a message on how to follow through towards our goals by raising our personal standards to develop rituals that create real progress in our life. 



Lessons Learned from this Video:

  • You have to expand your identity to enlarge your capacity to be more, do more and experience more in life.
  • Your personal standards should challenge you to consistently produce personal excellence. Are you holding yourself to higher standards each and every day in the areas of your interest, passion and purpose? 
  • Success is not about possessions. Success is about the contributions that you make in life. You will be rewarded publicly by the rituals that you do in private.

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…
