Cut to the front of the line, by being the one giving to the line.


Many business owners believe that giving back is something big companies do as a public relations (PR) stunt just to bring a good image to a brand or company. The reality is the every business has something that they can give back to. It could be a local event or cause or national one. It really does matter. In my opinion everything starts locally, unless you are strictly an online business.

If you’re an individual entrepreneur giving back could mean mentoring, or providing free services or training. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Many individuals are only one donation, one volunteer, or one piece of information that could set them on the path to great success. The giving back doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. It just needs to be a gesture.

The bottom line is that everyone and every company has the ability to give back and give someone else a helping hand. The only reason some don’t is that they may feel they are at the back and they should be receiving. That type of mentality will take you to the back and keep you there. You can’t compete; forget about dominating if you believe in scarcity.

Wishing you Great Success

Dreams Become Nightmares Of Regret When Not Pursued.


The saddest conversion to have at the twilight of your life is to start talking about all the things that could have been. The would have, could have, and the should haves are all results of choices and opportunities not gone after.

Dreams are the desires that will never come true until you take them from the imaginary and bring them into the reality. They are brought into reality by writing them down and putting a date when it will be acquired.  When we add the third dimension of time to whatever you are dreaming about you now make it tangible and obtainable. There are other steps necessary for acquiring it but this one is important. If you never add a date you want to have it then you probably don’t truly want it. Somethings may be more exciting just dreaming about them. While others don’t allow us to sleep.

It’s a far better legacy to say “I tried that myself.” rather than “I denied that to myself.”

Talk more about what you’re Doing than what you Did.

Pass Success

If you spend more time talking about what you did than what you’re doing…It’s time to get productive..

Listen to the words that you or others are saying when you’re in a conversation. I more time is spent remembering the past instead of creating a future then productivity has stalled.

The only thing you can use pass success for is a stepping stone to move you higher not a throne for you to rest on. It should be used for what I call having a David Moment. In the biblical story of David and Goliath, David was able to over come his fear partly do to the fact that he reminded himself  of his pass success. In his pass he was able to overcome great adversity on two different occasions. Once was when he killed a lion and another was a bear. He did it with his bare-hands. These pass success helped him move with confidence against the giant that stood before him.

As the title of the song by Janet Jackson say “What have done fore me lately” is what the world around you is constantly asking. The best way to avoid hearing those words or “I’ve heard that story.” is to create new stories. Remember, the best is yet to come and “The good old days” are here and now.

Best wishes on your success!
