It's easy to say "well, life got in the way," but such an explanation is never entirely accurate. Life gets in everyone's way, but the only obstacle stopping one from achieving their dreams is a decision to drop the towel and walk away. It's going to get hard. You're going to get impatient.
It was my mom who armed me with the motivation and confidence to be a better man. All of my success can be traced back to the lessons she taught right in our living room. And while she's no longer with us, her wisdom, principles and legacy will surely long outlive me.
I'm a big believer in the power and importance of dreaming. I'm not talking about fantasies or the stuff that wishes are made of. I'm talking about aspirations that take hold of you and your life and won't let go.

In this lifetime, I spent a long time looking for joy. I found that for me, choosing a good attitude and trying to affect positivity for those that I'm able to interact with is where I have joy. This is the joy that's available for free...it's love for other people.
The message that employees should hear and pass along is "yes." Yes, we want to hear from you. Yes, your opinion matters. Yes, you are valued. This message should be repeated throughout the organization, not only to employees, but customers as well.
I don't think I have ever before been compared with Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc. I am no where near as successful or accomplished as most of the people on this list. But for what it is worth, I'll give you a trait that I think is common among most of these people (including myself).
We all have dreams for our future that we want to come true. Somehow, many of us seem to get stuck and cannot figure out why our planted flowers of prosperity have not yet bloomed.
When you get out of the line, off that track, into the path of the no path you embrace being able to enjoy a new art form of spirituality. One, that is powerfully centered in the now. One, that you can be the person you desire yourself to be now and make a massive difference instantaneously.
Failure seems to be all the rage these days. Fail fast. Fail smart. Fail forward. It's hard not to gag on the plethora of "failure" clichés that headline cultural media today. My 6-year-old daughter is even wrapped up in the topic.
Anxiety can be a sign to pay attention and bring your A-game. You can turn it into drama, a false cataclysmic feeling or you can use it as a performance enhancement tool. Here are the three primary sources of anxiety and what to do about it:
Many people assume that successful people have things handed to them or that it comes with little effort. However, what is not always obvious is that they are successful because they practice certain things.
To be successful you must work hard, count deeply on yourself and strive to owe nothing. You know you are a "somebody" when you are both intelligent and kind. These are traits hard to find wrapped up in one person.
We often get stuck like fish swimming in the waters of our lives. We do things to make ourselves look good, to be someone everyone thinks we should be, even at the cost of compromising who we really are. We don't know these things are holding us back, because we've let it become normal.
As I have been busy promoting my new book Chosen: The Shifting of 21st Century Leadership, I am amazed at the response that I am getting from leaders ...
I only hire intrepreneurs. They fit our high-growth, fast paced environment and they're the only people I like working with. If you're a "I just want a job and a salary and don't want to rock the boat or do anything remotely risky or brave'" person, then it ain't going to work.
