Success Information

Average Sucks!

The very first "motivational speaker" I heard as an adult was a gentleman named Mort Utley.  I experienced his speech in May of 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee, at the end of a week of Sales School with the Southwestern Company.

Five Tips for Perfect Transition Decisions

You're considering a new career, new place to live or new business, retirement, or any other move. You ask, "Will I be happy?" If you remember the old, old song, "What will be" may not be the answer you're looking for.

What Am I Going To Do With The Rest Of My Life?

Unexpected life changes. Anticipated transitions.

Make The Second Half The Best Half

Something happens when you come to the intersection called mid-life; you can look back in retrospect and see your life from an entirely different context. For many this mid-life review brings about a sense of urgency that ignites what is formally called "the mid-life crisis".

Life Versus Lifestyle

There is a difference but what constitutes a life and what constitutes a lifestyle is pretty ambiguous.  One thing that seems pretty clear to me is the lifestyle is observable while a life can have many internal aspects to it.

The One-Two Punch for Success: Authenticity and Alignment

Have you ever felt as if you are beating your head against a wall?  You repeatedly try to reach a goal but you never seem to achieve it.  Instead you are struggling rather than moving forward and achieving your goals with grace and ease.

The Reasons Why We Fear Success

In the book, The SHOCKwealth System?, it is discussed that there are four fears that must be overcome in order to experience true success. One of those fears is the fear of success itself.

The Gravitational Pull of ANTs, WORMS & FEARS

What is an ANT? An ANT is an acronym for Automatic Negative Thoughts. What is a WORM? A WORM is a metaphor for deep-seated, unconscious beliefs that lye dormant in our consciousness analogous to a computer virus that only activates when a certain button is pushed on our keyboard.

Control Your Fear Before It Controls You

"Fear Factor" is one of my favorite TV shows.  It highlights the courage of the participants to engage inthe most fearsome and disgusting acts.

Live Your Life To The Fullest

Do you sometimes feel that you're living a boring life?  Youjust can't seem to find anything exciting.  You wake up in the morning, then do the same old rituals.

How To Use The Past, Future, And Present In Attaining Success

Did you know that your past, present, and future can affectdirectly or indirectly your outlook in life?  THE PAST Have you ever done something that is so regrettable you couldn'tforgive yourself? Have you ever made a mistake that up to the present time you're still blaming yourself? Are you still torturingyourself with the thought that only if you could've done it differently, you're living a much better life right now? Good news for you!  You don't have to keep this burden in your heartfor as long as you live.  Release it.

Creating A Life You Love

Imagine that right now, right here, today? there is within your grasp not one but several opportunities to redesign specific aspects of your life so that the sum total is a life you absolutely love. Then imagine that the only thing standing between you and your opportunities is a closed mind, fear, habits, concern, worry, drama, or perhaps mental, physical, and emotional clutter.

Wait, Thats Not on the Map

Back from my amazing summer excursion, a month long drive through Spain!  Well, I mean, I didn't do any of the driving, my partner did.  See, I only know how to drive an automatic and since we have a stick here in Belgium, my partner kindly agreed to do all the driving.

Focus On Yourself
If you're in business, are looking to enter the world of business, or are reading about various ideas to do with business, there is *one* piece of advice you need to succeed - focus on yourself. Now, obviously "focusing on yourself" is a broad statement and is not likely to win over many clients. The point is that if you're looking at becoming successful *in your own right* (IE as your own "boss"), you need to be completely focused on YOUR life, not someone else's.

You Have the Capability to Be Successful - Here Is How
There is most certainly no shortage of gurus who market their awesome "secrets" to become wealthy. Although without question some of the information they offer is helpful, it usually falls short of offering a satisfactory set of methods that really matter for the average person to reach his/her personal goals to achieve wealth. It is risky, partial-truths and that's not what most people require to become wealthy.

How to Get Massive Support in Your Biz
I've been called a control freak, multitasker, goofball, magnificent manifester, and just plain ole freak. I can relate to all of them. However, the one that used to really irritate me is when someone said I wasn't a good delegator.

Keep Your Eyes On Your Goal
When you try to achieve something great in life, you always need to keep your eyes on your goal, working with the end in mind. Most people focus on the path and pursue only that, which is one of the things that make them stumble. Everything in life starts with an objective. So identify that first.

Internal Motivation VS External Motivation - The "Secret" To Monumental Success
Most people are "externally" motivated. They focus on "things" that are not inside their head; goals, products / items; experiences. Whilst these are great (and obviously provide people with a good set of motivation to get things moving), they are self limiting, and often ephemeral. The best people are actually motivated by "internal" factors (such as ideas, inquisition or just plain passion/interest). By following this internal guide of motivation, I've found it much more effective for me to achieve things I would have never even attempted before.

Givers Or Takers In Life - Who Wins?
At first glance you might assume that takers do better in life, get more and achieve greater success and even wealth than givers. However, depending on how you want to define these four outcomes consider; givers live longer, are healthier, impact others in a more positive and lasting way, get sick less and have greater inner peace and happiness and takers have the opposites of all of these. So, let me ask you - if you could choose which of the above group you would be in as you go through your life and its years and circumstances - what's your decision?

Knowledge Is The Most Powerful Weapon
Knowledge is the most powerful weapon you are ever going to have at your disposal. It is not a gun, a sword or a bomb because the strongest instrument you will have if you really want to make a change is what you learn. So, wherever you are right now in life, I want you to burn that into your mind.

How To Be A Champion In Life
There is no known shortcut on how to be a champion in life. Winning has very little to do with luck or chance but rather with the end result of all the work you put in. So, to have the heart of a winner, you need the dedication of one who knows what he wants and what he has to do to achieve it.

Walking In Integrity
Leviticus 19:13 (AMPC) "You shall not defraud or oppress your neighbour or rob him; the wages of a hired servant shall not remain with you all night until morning." Dear people of God, the Lord Jesus Christ made us understand who a neighbour is, in the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). A neighbour is any person you have come across in the course of your daily life and not just the person you live next door to at home.

The Greatest Pleasure In Life
Very often, the greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. There are great joy and satisfaction to prove others wrong and build the life you want. And yes, at times, a person must travel many roads to find its true nature. But I dare you to show them that they are wrong about you.

High Performance and Quality Equals Routine
To accomplish a lot daily, one must commit to daily routines. A simple routine helps you to relax and find your rhythm and focus which presses you to complete each task in your schedule. Greatness is not done all at once, but broken down into bite size nibbles in a day, which accumulate to a substantial body of work.

Why The Fear Of Success Is Nonsense - It's The Fear Of Hard Work That Frightens People Most
I might risk alienating some people in this article, possibly offending others. However, if it means forcing you to think about the topic differently, I will have done my job to serve you. Is fear of success real? Is it possible to have a fear of: wealth, recognition, serving others, playing bigger, impacting humanity and having your work serve a wider audience? Fear of success, I call nonsense.

Success and Its True Meaning
What really is success? Is it scoring 100 in my Biology Class Exercise, or is it being the best in Chemistry for the year. On the other hand, is success being able to get higher than 70 in a literature paper or is it writing an article for the school's paper.

Re-Invent Or Become Obsolete
Is it time to re-invent or transition your business? The world is a different place than it was in 1980. If you have been in business for more than twenty years and are dong things they way you did when you started or even just five years ago - beware - times are changing faster than at any time in history and it's only going to get worse do you have a choice - circle the wagons and keep doing what you have been doing for years or let go of conventional wisdom, sacred cows and traditional thinking and reinvent - yourself, your business, your association, your church - everything - or accept being left behind and losing everything.

The Keys To Getting What You Want
I would like to let you know what qualifies me to mentor you. My name is Dr. Mark L. Huddleston. I started my exciting journey April 14th, 1998. I experience a quantum shift in paradigms. I went from disbelieving to believing. I went from being a pessimist to an optimist. Instead of seeing the glass half empty, I began to see the glass half full and opportunity all around me. I will never forget that day as long as I live. I remember waking up in a total panic. I remember that I was totally broke. I was bringing home $7,000 a month and my rent on my apartment was only $800 a month. After all my bills were paid I had over $5,000 to myself to spend, so why was I broke?

Is Your Subconscious Set For Success?
Today you see a lot of people promoting the "Right mindset," and it's so saturated that you might be thinking "Oh not this crap again" I know I have gone through periods of those thoughts. But there is a reason you are being asked: "Is Your Subconscious Set For Success?" Something happened to me this month of November 2017 that made me think.

8 Ways To Awaken Your Greatness And Affirm Your True Power
To awaken your greatness requires unearthing your potential that lies dormant within you. Just as a miner who goes in search of diamonds and discovers the illustrious mineral, there are many who give up right before they strike it rich. Giving up does not mean the diamonds don't exist, for it is those who keep searching that eventually realise success. So it is with greatness. You must continue your quest to unearth it because undoubtedly it dwells within you waiting to emerge.

Why You Should Always Listen To Your Heart
How and why you should always listen to your heart is one of the best things I learned in life. When you follow it, it often leads you on the right path. It is when you do not comply with it that things go wrong. You might not always approve or like what it has to say. Yet, it is constantly honest with you.

New Year & Your New Career
Career well-being is feeling good about the work you do. It means you can truthfully answer "Yes!" to the question, "Do you like what you do each day?" We know that when our career well-being is solid and stable, we are healthier, happier and more successful over all. Career well-being doesn't happen by magic, of course.

The Perils Of Comparison
I can't tell you how many people I have met during my world travels when only after a few minutes of conversation they started comparing themselves to someone or something else. A competitor, a celebrity, a fellow employee or even someone they didn't even know. Why do we need personal validation by comparison? Why do we need to feel better or worthier than others? And why can't we accept who we are, what we have accomplished, our flaws and mistakes, our failures and disappointments without the ego's need to compare and look better than others?

There Is No Beauty Without Struggle
In the course of our life, we have to agree that there is no beauty without struggle. No one likes to hear the story of someone who got everything easily.

What Is The Source Of Your Personal Value?
Each of us has a self-perception of our own personal value. Some people use money, wealth and net worth while others use position, power or influence and still others us legacy, fame and reputation or status. But there are also many who measure or value themselves based on service, humility, generosity and modesty. Have you got an opinion which of these are better or more valuable to define you? Better still - which ones do you use as a self-measurement? Even better still (I know getting old) how do you think most people who know you reasonably well, would define you? Could be scary.

I could go on, but I know your time and attention span is short so on to my purpose of this short article.

Well, how about meeting a blind date for the first time hoping that you don't do or say something stupid? Never had that experience either? OK, how about waiting for an interview for a job you need to get for any number of reasons and you just hope they will approve of you and your resume, experience and yes, the color of your hair, the shoes you are wearing and how tall or short you are?

Many people hope for success to rescue them from their dreary lives. They put their life on hold until success comes along and declares them worthy of it. Whilst I'm being facetious, it is relatable because many don't realise success is something you earn through commitment, dedication and a tenacious perseverance. Many people don't give themselves permission to be successful, because they prefer to play small, within their comfort zone.

Had Any Closed Doors In 2017? Open Ones?
We have all experienced a closed door in some area of our life at one time or another and if I were to guess, you had at least one closed this year. If you haven't you were either locked in your closet for 12 months or you have a magic wand that you wave in front of every closed door and it opens for you. I will also wager that you have had the opportunity to go through an open door this year but hesitated or just took a different path or decided to go through it. Yes, I'm doing a lot guessing but having had my share of both open and closed doors in my life and I have learned a great deal about both and how to treat them.
