I read, I listen and I hear speakers tell all about the keys to being a successful speaker. I watch them over and over as they explain the ‘Ten Steps’ to speaking success or the ‘7-Parts of a successful speech.’
The truth… Continue reading

When you wake up in the morning how do you feel? As I teach personal development, self-improvement, self-esteem I always ask about how people and their habits. You might even find yourself taking one of my surveys or quizzes that circle the internet inviting you to participate. Please do! You will find questions to help you be a success.
When you wake up in the morning what mood are you in?
When I ask this many people share a negative feeling of waking in the morning. “Ugh, it’s too early.” “I don’t wanna go to work.” I am sure you have all heard people express these feelings.
Do they change those feelings after they have been up a while? Some do. Some don’t. How about you?
Here is my goofy wake up good morning mood event. Yes, it is an event. I like to think that every evening when I go to bed that I decided to wake up in a great mood. People argue with me about whether or not you can decide the night before if you are going to wake in a great mood. I believe you can but if you don’t believe that then this article is for you.
When you wake up in a not so great mood, try this. Stumble into the bathroom, turn on the light, look in the mirror at the horror waiting for you there and say, “you are the best looking person in the room!”
I know! Crazy! Absurd! Wild! Drug induced! Continue reading
When you are one of the few great managers and you have jobs to do it is very easy to overlook the instructions you need to accomplish the task. A course in Mental Prosperity, Learn to Win success training makes good managers great.
I was working with a car dealership a while back and the dealer hired me to ‘motivate’ his staff, saying sales were not progressing as they should. Well, my first question in my mind asked, sales are not progressing as they should? Who said they should and why, but I did not ask the dealership this. Instead I asked what they were doing to move sales ahead and they explained their current motivation. It was basically what all sales companies do and that was incentivizing the sales process.
When I asked what that meant they said, every month we offer the lead sales person a new prize or gift if they finish atop the leader board. I then asked, over the last several months, how many of your 23 sales people have won? They told me it was basically the same three people over and over.
Interesting, isn’t it? What is your thought on this right now? Is that a good thing or not? Here is my in-post poll: The fact that the same 3 sales people are always winning the monthly sales board is because: A: They are using the wrong incentives B: Those sales people have been there the longest C: Those sales people are just the best sales people D: fill this in for yourself 😉
Just an interesting poll. If you would send me your answers I would love that! firstname.lastname@example.org
But when I delved deeper into the why here is what I found; Continue reading

Great Managers are made not born. Who is making you great?
Yes, every day in every way you need to understand that without growth there is only failure. One of the wonderful comments I have heard lately is, people don’t quit companies they quit people.
Do you understand that? People… Continue reading
