Commitments: They make or break you … What are you committed to?

December 13, 2011 in Business, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

"Success may mean many things, but it will never be an accident."

This is the third and last part of the series "Gifts, Choices and Commitments" - a speech that I made at a Toastmasters meeting last month expanded for this blog. This post is about how commitments can make or break you, their importance and how they can impact your life's journey. Mine certainly have shaped my life.

Commitments are major intentional decisions that we make at specific times in our lives that, if managed on a daily basis, help us to stay on a specific desired path.

We all have something or someone we are committed to. The question is not whether we're going to commit to something, but rather Read the rest of this entry →

Choices in Life… Could you live the life you want?

November 26, 2011 in Business, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

"Destiny is not a matter of chance; it's a matter of choice" ~ William Brian

As I mentioned in last week's post, I view my life in three categories - the first one I shared with you was some of the gifts in my life that I so thankful to have received.

This week, I'm sharing with you the second category that I believe have largely change the trajectory of my life. Having the gifts is one thing. But the choices that you make after having received those gifts are another. I recognized this fact many years ago and since then I have paid more attention to the impact of my choices on my life.

Now, before I continue I should be the one to tell you that I haven't always made the best choices. But what I know is this: If you make more bad choices than you make good choices, the trajectory of your life looks like

Do you have a plan for growth?

September 28, 2011 in Business, Communication, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

Are you looking to grow?  Are you looking to be, do and have more in your life?  If so, below is a sample growth plan that my mentor and friend John Maxwell shared on his blog a couple years ago that I think you'll find valuable - especially for those of you who participate in my Mastermind Groups.

Clipped from http://johnmaxwellonleadership.com/2010/02/08/do-you-have-a-personal-plan-for-growth/

On Twitter and Facebook on Sunday, I quoted my friend Paul Meyer, mentioning that he was the person who helped me create my first personal growth plan. In the hours afterward, I received dozens of requests, all asking the same thing: “How do you create a personal growth plan?”

The answer to that takes more than 140 characters, so I thought I’d post it here:

The key to a life of continual learning and improvement lies in developing a plan for growth and following through with it. Paul Meyer knew this. In fact, when I first met him and we had lunch, he asked me a question that changed my life: “Do you have a personal plan for growth?” Read the rest of this entry →

Freedom. It’s not what you think – wisdom from Scott Dinsmore

July 6, 2011 in Business, Communication, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

Freedom is not what you think

For all the talk of "freedom" and "independence" going on this week, many are still not free.  The reason...?  There is a lack of willingness to dream and make some sacrifice to relentlessly pursue that dream.  Think of all the courage, sacrifice and willingness it took the fathers of this nation (USA) to fight until they achieved their dreams of freedom and were able to declare independence and for us to have and boast about this week.  They did something that mattered.

Today you don't need to sacrifice as much as they.  And so my question for you:

Are you willing to do the same to better your life and that of your neighbor?  What does Read the rest of this entry →

This is the last article in the series “30 days to live”. Over the past two weeks we’ve explored the different areas of your life that you might want to focus on if you only had 30 days to live. In Part 1 and Part 2, I asked that you take a look at your life and see what you would change if you only had known your “death date”. Looking at life from this perspective, we emphasized on the urgency of taking actions now as opposed to later.

As we conclude the series and knowing how limited our life on earth really is, my last questions to you:

What would you want people to say about you at your funeral?

You may find it a strange question. But imagine that you are standing in the back of the room at your funeral listening everyone coming on stage to say a few words about you. What would

Focus on Relationship: Making things right

In part one of the series we explored some of the things that one might consider and action steps to take given only 30 days to live. We posed the question: How would your life be different had you only 30 days to live? We covered how we usually talk about the past and the future while forgetting to live today the best we can. The tendency that we have of exaggerating yesterday, overestimating tomorrow and underestimating today gives us a false perspective on how to best live life. What I urged is that you should start now, turn your intentions into actions and make today tomorrow’s ‘good old days’.

In part 2 of the series, we focus more on Read the rest of this entry →

Mahatma Gandhi

If you only had 30 days to live, would you continue doing the same things that you are doing now?

How would your life be different?

As you think about these questions, you will realize that there are adjustments you would want to make in your life. Being faced with death has a way of Read the rest of this entry →

Intentional Living – What is it all about?

May 7, 2011 in Book Reviews, Business, Communication, Leadership, Motivation, Personal Growth, Successful Living

This blog is called "Intentional Living" because not being intentional about our daily activities and thoughts mean that we are placing a lid on our potential. By being intentional we are putting ourselves on a path that will take us to Read the rest of this entry →
