You have plans?

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” (Allen Saunders)
Every plan should have some flexibility for change and expansion. Every massive building is designed to handle tension or stress because surrounding circumstances can and may be altered by some interference or forces outside of its control. “Plan your work and work your plan.”

This WORKS for Me

One of my favorite quotes from the Bible is, “Give me success this day”. I would often quote this verse to myself throughout the course of each day and as I recall this habit of my past I remember having success of some sort each and every day. I started today by saying “Give ME Success This Day!” What’s your confession of faith and prosperity? If you do not have one use mine and please let me know how that works for you. Put your hands to something noteworthy and ask for success, that’s my contribution to your success this week.

The Character Question

“Dreams are the touchstones of our character.” (Henry David Thoreau)
“Character is what you are in the dark…” When no one is looking are you the same person? Are you consistent in your decision making and how you conduct business? Maybe you are partial in judgments? Those who have no need of an escort, those who are truly comfortable in their own skin are those individuals that have the ability to change the world.

Popular Apps in iTunes…

What is the most popular App in the iTunes Store? Is it any surprise that Facebook is number 1, but can you name any of the Top 10 besides Facebook? When this question was posed I immediately thought of Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and some sort of music app, which Pandora made the Top 10 List of Most Downloaded Apps in iTunes. You can see the article at http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/columnist/talkingtech/2013/07/10/countdown-to-top-apple-free-app-downloads/2504161/.
What would be your favorite App? By sharing our favorite Apps we can really help each other discover new worlds. LinkedIn and PayPal are among my favorites. Let’s chat about it!

Get out of your own way!

“The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants them to do, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” (Theodore Roosevelt)
In my book Executive Level Mentality I have a section where I state, “Create a Vision and then get out of the way.” You may be hindering your vision by not allowing yourself to change your opinion or not allowing the people you trust to change their opinion. A vision is fluid, alive and ever evolving. Stay current, in the know and hungry for knowledge. Growth is right around the corner!

What’s your Why?

Find what truly makes you happy and chase it like there is no tomorrow! The happiest people in life are those who do what they love daily, weekly, monthly, yearly and in some cases hourly. I challenge you to find what makes you happy and refuse to lose in your quest to attain it.

Be a DOER

“The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do.” (Sarah Ban Breathnach)
Are you a doer or just a dreamer? A doer of a dream is a powerful agent for change. Unless something motivates us to awake and strive for excellence each day we will never reach our potential and unfulfilled potential is a waste.
