New Year’s Resolutions are for Losers!

Show Notes: New Year's resolutions are for Losers! Winners set goals! It's that time of year… I want to talk about something that really works. New Year's resolutions don’t work.

New Year's resolutions are often vague… “eat healthier” “get fit” “handle money better” Virtually no value at all. Unless an intention is specific...

Top 3 Reasons Morning Routines Fall Apart

Show Notes: E.M.S.R.  Your “Early Morning Success Ritual” is one of the most important acts of discipline you can practice. It is the foundation of a productive day.

This is just like humans.  Misery (and mediocrity) seek companionship - Those who...

How’s Life Treating You?

Do you tend to feel really blessed about your life as it is today or do you feel bitter about how things have worked out so far? Or, maybe you fall somewhere in between.

If a man constantly aspires, is he not elevated? Did ever a man try heroism, magnanimity, truth, sincerity, and find that there was no...
