How to Change a Habit With the Four Quadrants of Change

Quitting smoking is the easiest thing in the world. Some people quit smoking a thousand times in their lives! Everyone knows someone with this mindset. But this type of change is superficial. It doesn’t last. For real, lasting change to take place, we need to consider the quadrants of change. Real change, the change that is fundamental, consistent, and longitudinal (lasting over time) has to happen in four quadrants of your life. It doesn’t have to be quitting smoking; it can be any habit you want to break — drinking, biting your nails, overeating, playing video games, shopping, and more. Most experts focus on only one area of change, some focus on two areas, but almost none focus on all …

Learn how to motivate yourself

“Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.” ~ Norman Augustine I truly believe Augustine’s words are true and if you look at history you know it is true. There are many people in the world with amazing talents who realize only a small percentage of their potential. We all know people who live this truth. We also know those epic stories, those modern-day legends surrounding the early failures of such supremely successful folks as Michael Jordan and Bill Gates. We can look a bit further back in time to Albert Einstein or even further back to Abraham Lincoln. What made each of these people so successful? Motivation. We know this in our gut, but what can we do about it? …

Know yourself…your inner power

I am upset. At this moment, as I sit here typing this up, I am truly upset. Something happened a little while ago. I got into an argument and I am now reaping the results of that. It’s a true bounty of results, I can tell you. Let’s see…anger, frustration, shame, disgust…then more anger and guilt at the fact that I have allowed myself to get angry and frustrated. All of this is confusing. It’s a form of madness (no offence intended). I think what’s worse is that it is quite normal for most people. So, as I sit here and stew, let us see if we can work this all out. Where does all this negative emotion come from? …

Knowledge Or Action?

It’s been said that knowledge is power. While that’s true to an extent, it isn’t the whole truth. Knowledge without action is almost useless. It doesn’t help to be a genius if you never do anything with the knowledge. I tend to think of knowledge as ammunition and action as a gun. (It’s a typical guy thought, I know but it works for me.) Think about it. If you have bullets and no gun, they’re pretty much useless. If you have a gun and no bullets, the best you can do is throw (action) the gun at the target. Not as useless as the bullets (knowledge) since action without knowledge is more productive than knowledge without action The reason I’ve …

In search of Confidence

What is the big deal with confidence. Why do some people have so much and others are struggling just to get their name out wondering why they missed out or something. Well we’re all living in this box, and until we realize that we’re not and then here we are… “obstacles are the things we see when we take our eyes off our goals” Is it possible to teach confidence? Well, yes. Anything is possible! Take drinking for example. Drinking is of course a way of releaving stress but really in turn most of the time creates more…much more…? who would tend to agreee with me?

How to Follow Your Passion and SucceedPick the Brain

Both in the physical and digital world, people would describe me as a nomad. Some would even say I’m a troublemaker, but not in a mean-spirited way. The reality is that for me, it’s all about the view. By that, I mean literally and figuratively in my perspective. Because my passions are travel, connecting people, and beauty, I do everything to have all of it in my life. For instance, in following my passions, I have the chance to travel for business and pleasure when I have the opportunity to steal a weekend away someplace warm. And, aesthetic beauty is found almost anywhere—especially when I have the chance to work from a splendid beach. I will share that sometimes people …
