|Secret To Getting Anything?|
Success At Any Time?
It goes without saying that we are unlikely to experience much success in our lives if we don't take action. That is why Anthony Robbins said,
"The path to success is to take massive, determined action."
Having planned to do something, we take action to achieve it.
So why is it that we so often decide to do something worthwhile, and either forget it when the time comes, or choose to put it off?
The answer is in motivation, or lack of it.
But what is motivation? I don't intend to define it with precision, but I do want to look at something that is always present when we feel motivated ? emotion.
Ask yourself, when did I last feel truly motivated without feeling some passion for what I intended to do? It could be negative passion as well as positive; for instance, we can be passionate about avoiding pain, but the element of emotion is still there. You cannot be motivated and apathetic at the same time.
The way to motivate ourselves is to raise an emotional response to our plans. We can do this in a number of ways, but a good starting point is to ask ourselves a question:
Why do I want to achieve this? What benefits will it bring? How will I feel when I have done it?
Having worked out your reasons, concentrate on visualising the end result. Enjoy the feeling of achievement in your imagination, hear what others will say, see the look of admiration on their faces.
How do you feel about achieving it now?
Depending on the nature of your goal, you will find it helpful to revisit your imagination at least once a day until you achieve it.

Success: How to Ask the Right Questions
Q. My problem is that I have trouble keeping my motivation and energy up day to day. I get so scattered and wind up forgetting where I want to go. Do you have any suggestions for making this work on a daily basis?
An Image Makeover that will Change Your Life Forever
Have you ever met people who exude charm and charisma? They have mysterious power and personal magnetism that is attractive to everyone. Some of their captivating qualities are good manners, poise and a great personality. Charm and charisma are virtually indefinable but can be narrowed down to a number of outstanding characteristics. To make yourself a more captivating person identify the traits you have and develop those you do not have.
Can Anyone Become A Successful Business Person?
Can anyone become a successful businessperson? I am asked this question many times after I have given a speech on business procedures and strategies. The answer is not that simple.
Reaping a Multiple Reward
For every disciplined effort, there are multiple rewards. That's one of life's great arrangements. In fact, it's an extension of the Biblical law that says that if you sow well, you will reap well.
Persistence is Tops
To take the online road to success is not, contrary to millions of internet and email ads, the short road traveled. There is enormous revenue potential through online channels, predicted to top $8 billion by 2005. We all would like our piece of the pie, but unfortunately some don't want to work to get to it.
If Youre Not Ready - Dont Start!
There are times when we feel we should take action, but feel stuck or unsure. Action does assist with moving forward, but the first question to ask is "Am I ready?". We might be willing and able, but if we are not ready we will have a false start. We will sabotage ourselves.
Mastering The Habits Of Success
The difference between success and failure is based on behavior. Successful people adopt certain behaviors that help them move in the direction that they desire. Unsuccessful people do not adopt a specific behavior set and tend to drift through life.
A Stop On the Road of Life
With three kids, a business, a husband with a business, a house, a yard, and a very close extended family, my time is at a premium.

Recently I was caught between two major obligations, driving from one to the other, and late again.

Why Questions are so Important for Self Improvement and Success
Asking questions is one of the most basic ways that we all learn and grow. The questions we ask other people, and even more importantly, the questions we ask ourselves, can have a dramatic impact on our self improvement, success and happiness.
Control Your Fear Before It Controls You
"Fear Factor" is one of my favorite TV shows.† It highlights the courage of the participants to engage inthe most fearsome and disgusting acts.
Bring on the Boosters!
Nobody becomes a success alone, period. There is no such person who is "self made." I know this because I have regularly involved myself with some of America's most successful people and as I listen to their stories I realize that all of them have had what I call their own "booster club."
Is Shyness Affecting Your Job?
It is accepted that most people have felt shy at one time or another but not everyone who appears to be shy can be identified as having any social problems. While some are only shy in certain situations they feel uncomfortable with, such as meeting people for the first time, others feel shy more often and go out of their way to try and avoid any situation that encourages them to experience unpleasant feelings.
