We’ve all been there.

I used to believe that it was impossible to turn an unproductive day into a productive day until I discovered these 5 techniques. Read more

Overcome Fear to Achieve Goals

By Theresa Peasley

Few people talk about their New Year’s resolution’s in summer. We’d rather talk about baseball or summer vacation plans then the goals we made in January. But now is a perfect time to consider why some goals remain unachieved.

What stops us from achieving our innermost desires? We tell ourselves to eat more vegetables, exercise, manage our stress and get more sleep, but why don’t we do it?

The thing that stops us from making changes in our lives is fear.

Five New Habits to Help You Reach Your Goals Faster

By Kevin Eikenberry

If we already knew how to achieve a goal, and had done it before, it wouldn’t be much of a goal, would it? In other words, we’d have already achieved it. Yet too often we treat goal achievement like the rest of the work. We put the time in to set the goals, and then we magically expect them to achieve them during the year, even if we don’t really change our behavior or our calendar.

How to Take Better Breaks to Boost Your Productivity

By Jill Duffy

You’ll never be the best you can be if you aim to be 100 percent productive all the time. It’s impossible for any worker to work nonstop without paying a price, be it a decrease in quality, output, or safety. We all need to take breaks.

Generally, knowledge workers (myself included) are responsible for their own break schedules. It’s up to us to determine when to take a 2-minute break to surf Facebook, or how slowly to stroll down the hall to get a glass of water. Read more

By Grant Cardone

Because I never trusted my talents, my looks or my luck, and I had no connections, I studied what successful people did and tried to mimic that. Then I studied what unsuccessful people did and tried to avoid that.

While there are many things that seem to differentiate those who are successful from those who aren’t, I’ve noticed one simple difference that stands out the most—successful people are often more willing. Read more

Three Smart Ways To Set Personal Goals

By Tamlyn Canham

Half the year is officially done and dusted, which means you should have made some major progress as far as your goals for 2017 are concerned?

Sadly, according to data released by the Statistic Brain Research Institute,  less than 10% of people who set personal goals at the beginning of the year, actually end up achieving them.

This means that there are probably a lot of people who are slacking on their personal goals for the year right about now.

If you are one of those people, the good news is you have six more months to get back on track. Read more

How To Create Time To Achieve Your Goals

By Itunuoluwa Adebo

We all use this excuse, over-flogged and almost downright cliche. “I don’t have time, I haven’t had time”.

Do you ever look at the people you admire and all the amazing things they seem to achieve in the same 24 hours that you have, you can’t help but ask just how did they manage to do it?

Life itself is about goals. Living with a purpose and achieving that purpose with every goal we squash. You could have so many goals, career goals, business goals, family goals, everything you could ever have a goal for. Read more

5 Powerful Exercises To Increase Your Mental Strength

By Amy Morin

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.
