What does your calendar reveal about you? If I looked at your schedule next month, is it readily apparent what activities and goals you’ve created to further develop yourself?
You calendar can change your life… if you’ll use those 12 months as a strategic plan for becoming the best you can be. Every month, try setting four kinds of goals: Read more
Over the past few years, I’ve struggled with staying consistent with goals that I set for myself. I would make goals, legitimate things I wanted learn, or ways I wanted to better myself, and not stick to it. For instance, I attempted quite a few times to gain conversational fluency in a language, make exercising, healthy eating, and meditation on a daily basis a life habit. I would do my goal for a few weeks or even a few months, and then fall off, whether it be due to a shift in my schedule or if I suddenly became more busy. That was extremely frustrating, not being able to stick to the goals I set for myself. I’m sure almost everyone can relate to falling short of the expectations you set for yourself. I would constantly make excuses like, “I’m in New York, it’s almost impossible to plan a consistent schedule.” Read more
“It is one thing to Exist and quite another to Live. The difference between the two is the foundation of purpose.” ― Michael Quansah
I had what could be classified as a mini crisis of self the other day. I was running around (being crazy busy) and doing all sorts of things, but the sense of purpose was missing. I decided that night as I fell into my bed that I didn’t want to just make it through each day; I wanted to live each day purposefully. I had no clue what that even meant, let alone how to begin and I still haven’t figured it all out, but here are a few things I have discovered: Read more
Whether it’s a career change, a new skill you’re trying to master, or a big presentation lingering on your to-do list, we often delay complex projects only to later realize they weren’t quite as impossible as we’d imagined. So what’s standing in the way? According to Sam Bennett, author ofStart Right Where You Are, if we can’t visualize every stage from start to finish, we’re often too scared to jump in: “In school we’re taught to know the answers before we’re tested.” But we don’t always need to think that far ahead. Taking just one stride toward an achievement can give you the momentum you need to keep going—and might even clarify what comes next. These ideas will help you make major headway, step-by-step.

Most of us realize the power and benefit of setting goals. Generally that’s reserved for the beginning of a new year as a means to motivate us to move toward accomplishing something worthwhile. However, goal setting can be very helpful throughout the year and even on a daily basis. Read more

Psychology often discusses mental health — but what’s not often discussed is a clear definition of mental strength. To me, mental strength means that you regulate your emotions, manage your thoughts, and behave in a positive manner, despite your circumstances. Developing mental strength is about finding the courage to live according to your values and being bold enough to create your own definition of success. Read more
Successful people don’t achieve their goals by chance. Nor do they possess superior skills. And they don’t make it to the top because of someone they know. Real success is earned.
That is especially true in the world of fitness. Whether you have or you haven’t reached your fitness goals, the reason is you. If you’re among those who haven’t had success at getting in better shape, losing weight or improving your health in other ways, it isn’t too late. There are things you can do to turn the tide and make your goals attainable.
Here are three things that separate successful people from those who fall short in meeting their fitness goals (or, really, any goals in life). Read more

What is laziness? It is the desire to be idle, to do nothing and resist effort. It is a state of passivity and of letting things stay as they are. Sometimes, we enjoy being a little lazy, such as after working hard for several hours, or on a very cold or warm day, but if this state occurs too often, something has to be done about it.
In order to carry out our chores, work efficiently, live to the fullest, and achieve success, we must learn how to overcome laziness. Read more
I did it. I achieved an important goal this week and thought about the journey. I want to share some ideas about what`s important to achieve your goal.
I made yesterday finally the interview with an important publisher for my thesis and thought about the things I did to get this interview. It was not easy but finally I got it and want to share some ideas with you:
At the close of each year, some of us subconsciously give up on our remaining goals because we think there’s simply no time left. Then, the following year we get sucked into the “New Year, new me” vacuum. We set goals, tell all our friends this will be the year we stick to our goals and they will come to fruition come hell or high water. Like clockwork, by February or March, we decide to throw in the towel and hope no one remembers our grand proclamations. Here are some tips to keep you motivated throughout the year and propel you to greatness. Read more
