Action Speaks Louder Than Words
I have written much about how, in order to have more of what we desire in life, we must first do more and, that, in order to do more, we must first become more. In fact, the focus of the majority of my articles and books is about how to become more. I reiterate, time and time again, how important it is to acquire the specific knowledge of success if you want to have success.
I also make it a point to emphasize that knowledge alone is not power; that it is applied knowledge (or action) that begets the personal power to create. Nevertheless, I get many emails from people telling me that they have spent years studying and learning the metaphysical principles of success, without having any demonstrable increase in abundance, prosperity or material success. "Why?" they ask does this stuff not work for me.
In most cases, after some email discussion, I find it is because these people are not actually doing the necessary things to make a practical application of their education.
Just as you can obtain a degree in medicine, but cure no illness or save no lives if you do not actually work at being a doctor; you can know all the principles of success, but if you do not actually put them into practice, they will not work to produce results for you. You must act.
You can, for example, fully understand how the law of attraction works and you can have a harmonious mental attitude; but, if you want to create material abundance or financial success and you do not enact what you know by applying in within the available and proven ways to produce success, then your knowledge and education is wasted.
Many people mistake the self-satisfaction they get from acquiring knowledge as being sufficient unto itself. It is, perhaps, enough, if your only goal is to become more educated. It is not enough, however, if your goal is to use that education to produce measurable effects in your personal world.
Financial abundance, or success, is attained, not just because you know certain things, but when you also DO certain things. Things like applying money management techniques. (see my article on Money Mastery). Things like creating or providing valuable goods or services that people will pay you to obtain. Things like marketing your goods and services so that people will know what value you have to offer.
Use your understanding of the metaphysical principles of success and creation by taking action. If you have or represent a product or service that would appeal to a certain segment of society, then use your understanding of the law of attraction in your marketing activities. Don't expect those people who want and need what you have to offer to just somehow find you . Your harmonious vibrations won't stand out that much amongst all the noise and commotion of the world unless you do the necessary marketing.
Enhanced or advanced knowledge and education produces an enhanced ability to perform; but it is the performance, your actions, that produce the results (or circumstances or effects) in your life. Your actions do speak louder than your words. Don't tell me, or the world, what you know and understand; SHOW me and the world by enacting that knowledge in practical, result-producing, ways.
The ultimate value (and proof) of what you know is in the application or use of that knowledge. Do the doing and you will produce results. Face up to the fact that if the results you have in life are not to your liking, then it is likely that your doing is incorrect. If you don't know what to do to create success, then get the knowledge of success; but don't stop there, do something about it. Make the application.
Of course, indiscriminate action is not an effective way to produce your desired results. You can run around like crazy, climb 100 mountains, cut down forests full of trees and be generally frenetic enough to power up a small city without producing the exact results you wish to have. You must do the correct things in the correct way. That is why you must get the knowledge...so that you will know what to do. Become more, so that you are capable of more. Then, do more of what needs doing. Then, and only then, will you get to have more of what you want.
I'll say it another way... enlightened actions produce desired results. Understanding how things work is not enough. You must also do the things that work.
You can sit and stare at your navel all you want, but if you don't actually pull the lint out, it will still be there tomorrow.
ps. I'll soon be releasing a new program called Total Wealth Mastery. It will be a weekly mentoring program that will supply not only the specific knowledge of success, but also the step-by-step process of enacting that knowledge to produce tangible, real-life results. It will be available from the seLFTech website.

K.O.R.E. Elements of Success
I want to focus our thoughts on each of these four elements of success. While these were originally written for a business audience, the principles can be easily translated to cover yourself or any group or organization you belong to.
Take Yourself to the Top!
Everybody wants to get to the top, whether it is the top of a career, a company, the earnings scale, or the many other ways that we as individuals can define the "top" in our own lives! But with so many people trying to get to the top, how come so many people aren't moving up? I think there are some fundamental reasons why. Reasons that can be addressed and changed!
Raise Your Bar: The Power of Yes
Every one of us lives with a ceiling, a belief ceiling. Some ceilings are lower than others. Beyond that ceiling is all that is not yet known to us -- all the possibilities of possibilities. Raising our bar takes conscious awareness and embracing new experiences. Here is an experience that will inch your bar delightfully and positively higher. The exercise isn't hard to understand, hard to learn, nor hard to complete. Yet, you do need to approach the exercise with a child-like openness, maybe even a few giggles, and allow the harvest of your labor be its own journey.
Informational Interviews: Tips for Success
As a work-life and career coach, I regularly work with people who are engaged in a full-blown career change. Typically, this process involves identifying potential "next careers" through a variety of methods, and then seriously exploring them. Informational interviews are a great way to do this, but many career seekers are reluctant to pursue these kinds of conversations because they aren't sure what to ask. Not sure what to ask the professional who's granted you an information interview? Here are some ideas to help you get the most out of your meeting. These questions are based on the assumption that you have sent your resume to this person ahead of the meeting so they have some idea of where you are coming from.
Many people talk or write about the science of success or the art of creating wealth. You don't want just the science. You don't want just the art. What you want is the technology. The how to.

7 Ways to improve Your Listening Skills
Do you know how much time do you spend listening? It is estimated that half of our time is spent listening. Good listening is an essential part of active communication and makes us better managers, customers, coworkers, supervisors, parents and mates. Most of us aren't good listeners; however, listening is a skill that you can always improve.
I'll be the first to admit that everyone has his or her own definition of success and what constitutes living a life with greatness.

Do You Need to Have a High IQ to Be Successful? Does an Average IQ Mean Youll Be Average?
You have probably heard the term "IQ" many times, and you probably know it has something to do with measuring intelligence.
Preventing Setbacks: Compulsive Eating, Binge Eating, And Eating Addictions
On your journey to moving past using food to cope with life's difficulties, you will experience good days and bad days. It takes a lot of work to develop self-compassion and much practice utilizing new ways of thinking and acting. It is my belief that what is commonly referred to as "relapses" or "set-backs" are not a step back in time, but an important experience needed to gain new understandings and to strengthen new choices.
I confess, I love westerns. There is nothing like those "Showdown" scenes where the film is shot from down low and you see those boots moving slowly, step by step until they come to a stop just 100 feet from the other guy. Tumble weed blows by. The wind stirs the dust. The camera moves up and you see fingers twitching, getting ready to draw. You know that it is only a few moments until the good guy lets the bad guy have it and he'll be on his way to saving the day and setting the town free again. All that stands in his way is this one obstacle. But that obstacle must be put away.

Success: Beware The Arrival Syndrome
There is a saying that goes something like this: Getting to the top is easy, the hard thing is staying there.
The Best Time for Action? No Time Like the Present...
Too often we wait for the 'right time' or 'the kids to grow up' or the next vacation. But how long is that away. Often when I'm working with my clients, it's about getting clear why they are putting change off. Almost always it's the fear of the challenging consequences of making wilful change.

This morning, on TV, I was amazed to see how a house could be transformed by experts. They were allowed to use only £500 (or $1100 dollars) and they had to complete the work in two days.
