3 Reasons to Do the Toughest Thing First


By Ian Newby-Clark

If you’re like me and most folks in today’s busy hurly-burly world, you always have a lot to do. It’s a symptom of modern living and it’s hard to escape. Although I think the pre-modern folks were probably fairly busy too . . .

Of course, there are things to do and then there are THINGS TO DO. There are things that you’d like to do, things that you should probably do, and things that you absolutely must do.

But what to do first? Read more

Believing In Yourself Is The Foundation For Success

By Tom Black

“My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to.  The first was to walk without braces.” —Wilma Rudolph (four time Olympic gold medalist in track and field)

This week I want to talk about belief.  Again and again I see the most successful people in all professions, especially sales, begin with a basic belief that they can achieve success.  It seems that what the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

5 Daily Habits of Highly Successful People

By Kimanzi Constable

We all know that habits can either help or hurt your success in life. Bad habits can fester and grow into a lifestyle that takes you away from the things you want to do—and good habits can help you create a life that’s full of action and accomplishment.

If you were to look at someone you respect, someone who’s successful, you would see that they spend each day doing the things that help them accomplish their biggest goals. This isn’t to say they’re perfect—because no one is—but despite the things that are not perfect in their lives, they continue to make moves that have a positive impact. And it starts with their daily habits.

Now, while we can all study successful habits, it’s meaningless if we don’t implement that knowledge. So here are five daily habits of highly successful people—habits you can adopt to create the life you truly want to live: Read more

Success Determined by Ambitions


BY 

Success is something that almost all college students want to achieve one day. They set goals for themselves, work hard and do everything to become successful. Of course some students struggle and fall as time goes on.

Plattsburgh State University adjunct lecturer in the English department Aimee Baker, who is also an author of a book, said, for her personally, she always sets goals for herself, and after those goals have been achieved, she sets more goals for herself. Read more

Slow Down to Get Ahead

By Dawa Tarchin Phillips

Time. It’s our most coveted resource because of its scarcity. In an effort to falsely gain time during the day we rush through tasks, projects, and our lives. But we cannot be fully present to life or to our craft when we rush. We can lose our vision and clarity for success. In reactive mindsets, goals blur. We get sloppy.

Rushing hinders our capacity to be intellectually and emotionally available, and capture the opportunities that surface in the present moment. When we slow down and move through our activity with greater mindfulness we are more likely to act with the full power available to us in the present moment. Read more

Changing Your Mindset to Achieve Success

By Dr. Nikki Martinez

How Can I Change My Mindset?

Many of us stunt our growth and stop ourselves from getting what we want by having a fixed mindset. We have that voice in our heads that we listen to that tells us that we can’t do something, that something is impossible, or that we do not have the skills to achieve something. This kind of thinking is simply not true, and it keeps us stuck. We all want things, but to get them, we have to believe in our ability to accomplish the steps it takes to get them. We have to change our thinking from “I can’t” to “of course I can.” What we believe, we can achieve, and we can. It is like the famous saying, “Whether you tell yourself you can, or you tell yourself you can’t, you’re right.” Read more

By Steven K. Cload

If you are like most people, one of the biggest reasons you haven’t yet achieved the success you desire is because you are not disciplined.
