Maintain Focus

There are only 24 hours in a day and what you allocate that time to takes away time from something else. If you focus on non-beneficial items, you will easily miss out on items beneficial for you. If you constantly focus on ways to evade reality, you’ll always have a hard time dealing with it. If you neglect strengthening your relationships, they’ll never be as strong as you’d like them to. We need to focus our energy on the areas…

Team Dynamics

The dynamics of a team, work the same on the field as they do off. For most of my life I’ve felt that I could carry the load (of a team, my family or friends) on my back to complete significant tasks alone. Needless to say, the overwhelming majority of those instances I’ve been proven incorrect. Two of the major contributors to my failures I personally feel have been underestimating the importance of energy and intentions. Failure to surround myself…

Staying Power

Stamina is the ability to sustain prolonged physical or mental effort. All of us have a desire to do something greater than the status quo. Many don’t know what that thing may be just yet, but they do know that they want more than basic in some way. The more people I interact with and observe actions more so than words, I notice a lack of stamina. For those that don’t know what they want yet, it takes staying power…

Intentional Growth (Part 2)

Harvard social psychologist Dr. David McClelland, through research discovered that your “reference” group, the people you consistently associate with, determine up to 95% of your success or failure in life. We’ve all heard the saying that “birds of a feather flock together” and I think that we all lean heavily towards that being majority truth. Our growth is mainly dependent on the information we take in (books, media, etc.), life experiences, and the people we associate with. Simply put, if…

Intentional Growth (Part 1)

I’m a firm believer that success is determined by the decisions you make everyday. A routine allows you to establish daily habits conducive to attaining your desired goal(s). Achievements which provide great satisfaction and fulfillment are not attained through sporadic engagement. If you feel as though the goal you have does not need to be tended to daily, your goal isn’t big enough or you may not have found what it is you truly desire or are passionate about just…

The Secret to Growth

Life is interesting in that it’ll teach you everything you need to know about one thing through something else. In the simplest example, children learn to roll over, sit up, crawl, walk and then run. Prior to their success at each stage there are massive amounts of failed attempts and blunders. Failures are inevitable along the way and no stage can be skipped prior to achieving the next. Running prior to having the ability to walk is impossible. That logic,…

Personal Reality

The world around us and our situation in it does not change until we change. If we want adjustments to be made and the ability to see a difference in ourselves we need to actively pursue personal growth. As you invest in and take action on the development of yourself, your character is enhanced, which is supremely important because your mindset is inseparable from your character. What you see is what you get in the real world. And what we…

We all tend to believe we see things as they are and that we are impartial. That is certainly not the case. We view the world, not as it is, but rather as we are or as we have been conditioned to see it. When we share our views with others, we effectively describe the current person we are, our realizations, and our way of thinking. When we don’t see eye-to-eye with others we tend to think something is wrong…

Life isn’t just all one way. Life shouldn’t just be about your needs and leisure because it encompasses so much more. Imagine standing atop the Empire State building and looking in only one direction. You’d miss so much of the other beauty available to you, from the position you’re in. Many people seem to think of life in the same way. However, success in one area of your life can’t compensate for failure in others over the duration of your…

Fully Committed

When it’s all said and done, have no regrets. Fully commit to achieving your goals. Circumstances change daily. There is always something that hinders our expected progress. The sky’s are rarely perfectly clear nor the weather picture perfect. As the visionary MLK Jr. said “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Travelling a perfectly flat paved road is easy and…
