1 World-Class Secret to Build Confidence Over the Long Haul

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

I saw Serena Williams play an exhibition match in Los Angeles when she was only 11 or 12 years old. Looking back, I wonder if she realized that she would be the named best player in the open era and have earned more than 22 Grand Slam titles!  Not to mention all of her other unimaginably successful endorsements and businesses. Maybe not down to those exact details, but she did work every day believing her day would come, and believing it was possible.

It’s that unwavering belief in ourselves that allows us to dream big and persevere.

When it comes to our long-term objectives it’s important that we “proceed as if success is inevitable” (my favorite quote, BTW), hold on to our dream, and then relinquish control of the outcome. You, like Serena Williams early in her career, have little to no control of the scale of your future success. There are many unknowns:

  • What will the competition be like?
  • ...

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

It’s time! If you feel like you deserve more, it’s time to go after it.

There are many reasons why we (yes, me included:) avoid the crucial conversations or steps required to next-level our ambitions and desires. Whatever is holding you back, rest assured it’s 100% normal and OK, but not conducive for the progress you want to see.

Keep in mind, your next "BIG WIN" might be restoring or strengthening a relationship. It might be taking your business to the next level, closing one new client, or maybe asking for a raise. Whatever it is for you, there are tools you can learn to gain the confidence required to achieve whatever it is that you want and deserve.

Here’s how to get started!

  1. Believe
    Believe what you want is possible AND that you deserve it. This is a vital first step that must be explicit in your mind. If you are not 100%, try writing daily affirmations and and saying them out loud every night and every...

How To Develop the Confidence to Live Your Purpose

Do you ever feel purposeless?

We know finding clarity and purpose is difficult, so we’re approaching it from a different angle today: how you can develop the courageous mindset you need to develop purpose, because we believe that anyone can have world-class purpose.

I was recently interviewed by Geoff Woods, Vice President of The ONE Thing podcast and wanted to take a minute to personally share it with you.

In this episode you will learn...

  • What creates the gap between high achievers and everyone else.
  • How you can use positive affirmation to develop a more purposeful mindset.
  • Why you need to practice being purposeful (and how to practice deliberately).
  • Why you need to align yourself with an expert and put an accountability structure in place.
  • How you can commit to progress (instead of perfection).

How NOT to Set Dumb Goals

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

In 1976, Steve Wozniak suggested to Hewlett Packard (his employer at the time) the idea of creating a personal computer. He was rejected, so he and his friend Steve Jobs got to work themselves on their dream of individual creativity for each user.

Martin Luther King had a dream that someday we would all be equal.

When Michael Phelps was 7 years old, he had a dream that there were no limits on what he could achieve.

Did these world-class performers meet all of the criteria of S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely)? No. They dreamt big and worked every day like that dream was possible, even through massive setbacks and failures.

Here are a couple of reasons why YOU should dream big too:

1.)  Broad to Narrow:

When you dream big, are more optimistic, and shoot for the stars. You are more aware of opportunities that present themselves. This broad awareness may lead you to be more confident and throw your hat...

Do you, anyone you care about, or anyone you influence ever feel like the effort is there but the results are not?

3 World-Class Secrets to Train Your Brain

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

It’s very common for us to judge ourselves based on other people's sizzle reels rather than what's real. We don't see the struggle, insecurities and messiness of others. Rest assured, it's there at any level whether an amateur athlete or Olympian, whether an intern or CEO, or whether a new mother or the household CEO of 4 teens.

So, how do we focus on progress not perfection to be world-class at what's most important to us?

Today we are going to focus on one thing you can do to get started: Practice saying Affirmations daily.

Consider that we become what we constantly tell ourselves. Evidence-based research shows that affirmations, actually change the brain on a cellular level—in other words, what you think about matters—a lot.

“Thoughts have a direct connection to your health.” says Dr. Joseph Dispenza, author of Physics, the Brain and Your Reality.

Here are a couple tips for you to use Affirmations to be...

3 Secrets to Use Disruption as a Superpower (Mentally and Strategically)

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

We all face the threat of someone or something disrupting our status quo. The mere thought of disruption can be paralyzing or it can be a secret weapon. With the proper mindset and tools, you (or your team) can take control to use disruption as a superpower.

I had the opportunity to catch up with Michael Alf of the Disciplined Disruption Podcast. Here are a few of Michael’s rules to be proactive surrounding disruption, so you can capitalize on an uncertain situation. In future episodes, I will talk about the mindset and planning required to execute these amazing tips:

  1. Developing the proper mindset is a vital component when it comes to planning for disruption. One of the biggest challenges as businesses, industries and roles are changing is: ‘How do I expand my tool belt to be as prepared as possible?’ The answer to this question starts with being confident in what’s possible and having the mindset to make...
