The New Year Goals Challenge

Heading into the new year many of us will be looking at our last year in review and planning for the year ahead.  Perhaps in the upcoming year you want to exercise more, wake up earlier, make more money, or just be happier.  The thing is most of us just trust chance and HOPE that this year will be better than the last.  Remember this life is finite and someday you will not be here so why trust your life to chance when you can take charge of your future.  Let me show you how to set the wheels in […]

The 7 Day Information Diet Challenge

This ones going to hurt a bit.  Yup, you are NOT going to like this.  Why?  Because I am going to suggest you limit or eliminate some things in your life that you may not want to get rid of.  Its time for the “Information Diet Challenge” and its time to clear your mind.  Man you are going to hate this… (Insert angry kid here) Where to start?  Well you have most likely heard that we are bombarded with tons of information daily.  In fact we are exposed to 5 times as much information as we were exposed to in […]

The 5 Things I Would Tell My 18-Year-Old Self

Yes I am 36 and just half my life ago I was a senior in high school.  Remember the excitement and nervousness you felt.  Graduating high school was that rite of passage that shot you out of a cannon into the “real world.” I look at pictures of my 18-year-old self and hardly recognize that guy.  My hair was long and curly.  I was still quite awkward in my body.  The thought of reading books bored me to tears.  My heart hadn’t been broken…yet. My main concern in life was to party on the weekends, meet girls, laugh with my […]

Looking To Build Your Social Circle? Try Being A Connector

Are you looking to build your social circle, be more influential, or perhaps increasing your income?  Becoming a connector can help you get there.  A connector in the sense of bringing people together that would otherwise not have come into contact with each other.  Can you think of people you have met on separate occasions that you thought to yourself, “I really think Sara and John would get along” or “It seems like Mike and Stephen should meet as they really have similar interests.”  These interactions are how connections start and putting those connections into action can really contribute to […]

Why Do We Constantly Chase Security In Life?

“The need for security is based on not knowing the true self.” -Deepak Chopra Have you ever said something like this to yourself, “Someday, I’ll have $X in the bank, my house will be paid off, then I will do all the things I really want to do, and then I can relax and be secure?”  We all have, to an extent.  Its our inherent attachment to certainty and security.  Its also an illusion that most of us are chasing for our entire life.  Why do we constantly chase security in life? In our lives we are constantly asking ourselves […]

When You Plant Your Failures, You Grow Seeds Of Success

“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” -Napoleon Hill Read that quote a few times.  For some, you may grasp it right away and for others it may be a new way of thinking.  Either way, it is something that took me awhile to grasp.  It’s ok to fail.  In fact, if you want to be an entrepreneur, its necessary to learn how to fail and to learn how to fail the right way.  HUH??? For years I was scared to fail.  Everything we are taught in school and from […]

Begin With The End In Mind…. An Exercise That Can Change Your Life

I was recently listening to Stephen Covey’s breakthrough book “7 Habits Of Highly Effective People.”  This is my third time around.  Apparently I wasn’t ready to hear it the first two times around, which isn’t unusual.  The book has sold more than 15 million copies worldwide but I must say lots of the language was above my head the first few times.  This time around, more of the book jumped out at me.  The most influential section has been that of the second habit-Begin With The End In Mind. Dr. Covey starts the chapter off with what I believe is […]

How Does Your Family Lineage Affect The Outcome Of Your Life? Part 1

Today is my 36th birthday.  It’s a rainy day here in Boston and I am sitting at a dining room table at a friend’s house.  Over the past few years I have been more in tuned and more interested in my lineage.  Just recently, my grandmother passed away and I decided to go on to Ancestry.com and build my family tree.  The timing really couldn’t have been better.  I have always had a very futuristic vision on life but now realized the importance of my ancestry in looking at my own strengths and weaknesses. To strengthen this belief, I recently […]

$10 Million Challenge Part 2

Its May 4, 2013.  Its been about 3 months since I first made the commitment to my $10MM challenge.  Much has happened in the past 12 weeks since I made the lofty goal of creating $10MM in revenue from my own business ventures by the time I am 40 years old.  I have exactly 1,465 days until my 40th birthday.  Doesn’t seem like much time. Over the past few months I have felt some amazing things happen to me and my mentality.  I have been letting many special people in my life.  I have been listening intently to those giving […]
