  • Is The Universe Ganging Up on You?

    23/07/2021 Duration: 16min

      I’m not sure how you feel about the Universe and how things work in the world, but does the Universe speak to you? I can’t tell you if the ‘Universe’ stands alone or if ‘God’ created the ‘Universe’ and runs the show. That’s so far above my pay-grade that it amounts to a pile of cash bigger than Mount Everest.  What I can say is this. We live and breathe every day in a world that is ganging up on us and trying to get our attention. The question is, are you listening? While there are many ways people seek to receive messages of guidance as we make life decisions, my favorite has always been events the occur in triplicate. If something happens three times, I pay attention. Call me hard-headed, distracted, or set in my ways, but life has taught me that wisdom tends to come in whispers - usually when our thoughts are screaming in our head and drowning out our dreams. Now, let me be clear... A friend calling three times to go out on the town doesn’t count in my book. Snoozing your alarm clock three times isn’t a

  • Does Your Book Have a Happy Ending

    21/07/2021 Duration: 15min

    If you could write a book about the person you have become today, would it have a happy ending? A good portion of my day is interacting with clients around the world. They are usually upbeat, open to problem-solving, and seeking my advice to help them. Or, as they would say, “help me get out of my way and get my act together. That’s where writing a book comes to mind and a good question from me - “Okay. Before we begin, if you were to write a book about yourself in the future, would it have a happy ending?” Their answer is always, ”Yes! That’s why I’m here today.” My next question is, “If you were to write your book today, what would the answer be?” “Hmm… I would say average. Not great. Not bad. Certainly not a book anybody would read.” As the conversation continues, I make these points: 1) All of us get in our own way. That’s how we learn. And we all have our act together until we recognize that we want another act. That’s called growth. 2) People who live an averagely life almost always spend more time chas

  • Why Live Your Life in Somebody Else's Dreams?

    20/07/2021 Duration: 19min

      All I have ever wanted to do is have fun, impact people in a mostly positive way, make them laugh, have a great family and friends, make some money, and not take life too seriously.  Simple enough. But in the over-complicated and widely distracting monkey-see-monkey-do world we live in, it's easy to get what you want and still end up with a superficially satisfying life. In fact, I would suggest such a life is easy to achieve and perfect for anybody willing to get out of bed and join the world. Life is averagely good. But what if your inner voice is screaming, "there MUST be MORE?" Well, there is more. But only if you create it. That may scare you, but it won't if you realize and accept one thing - Someone else has created every single experience you have in your day-to-day life. Somebody else imagined building the city you call home. Somebody else imagined designing the car you drive. Somebody else imagined the phone in your pocket. That fact is, somebody else woke up and decided to turn their dreams into

  • Don't Let Simple Get Complicated

    20/07/2021 Duration: 11min

      Way back in 2005, when Motivation To Move began, I found myself focused on creating the world's simplest success recipe when I said, "Stand up. Take a step. REPEAT!" My way of thinking told me that everything else would take care of itself if that's all I did. It has proven me correct again and again. But, say that you get yourself moving and are having challenges maintaining forward momentum? In The One Thing, Gary Keller writes, "Success is sequential, not simultaneous." In other words, it's not about doing everything at one time. It's about having one success at a time. When you Stand up, take a step, and repeat, you are already guaranteed to have more success than the average human. But the magic happens when you define your focus. Gary Keller also has a suggestion that will help. Ask yourself one question… "What's the ONE Thing you can do such that by doing it, everything else will be easier or unnecessary?" Yes. It is a simple question, and you may attempt to complicate your answer. Don't do it. Take

  • The Best Change is Self-Inflicted Change

    19/07/2021 Duration: 10min

    A year and a half ago, the world changed when we were all introduced to something called CorinaVirus. It was as if we were racing down Interstate 95 at 75 miles-per-hour, slammed on our breaks, and directed off the nearest exit on an undefined detour. It all seemed to happen in an instant. The pandemic caused real pain and loss for some. Fear and stress for others. Still, as surreal as it was, it wasn't long before most people began to notice the craziness of our previous lives replaced with a 'new normal' - one that felt more like a 'new nothing.' Much to our surprise, life slowed to a crawl, schedules changed, and we found contentment by not chasing every shiny object that life presented. It turns out the pandemic pause caused people to reevaluate life from the inside out. While it happens all the time, this time, we noticed it. How many times have you found yourself in an impossible situation that came to an end with one action? You paid off debt, quit a job, you said goodbye to a bad relationship? How man

  • Time to Focus Bigger?

    16/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    The older I get, the more I fiddle with small things that drive me crazy but keep me busy. And I do it with the full knowledge it’s not the best use of my time, below my pay grade, and distracting from big stuff I should be doing. Over the years, I’ve noticed almost everybody I know does the same thing. I’ve also learned it doesn’t have to do with procrastination as much as getting a quick win and a short-term payoff. Yes, the reward for more significant projects is getting what you want, but check off your list of little stuff is distractingly intoxicating. It makes you feel good all day but keeps you awake a night.  The solution is to think bigger. As I work through my day, I focus on the biggest, broadest, and most important mission in my life. Is it family? Is it your health? Do you want to make more money? Is it time to give back more? When you have a great picture painted in your mind, your mission becomes your focus, and you will do whatever it takes to move closer to that vision. That’s why - “I work

  • How To Make Your Luck

    15/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    Have you noticed that some people seem to get luckier than others? Have you also noticed that they are not just sitting around collecting luck? Getting lucky is almost always the result of taking action on an opportunity that presents itself. Even finding a twenty-dollar bill on the sidewalk resulted from having the chance to take a walk - and doing it. There are three rules to attracting more luck into your life: 1) Get in the habit of seeking and recognizing opportunities that cross your path every day. They may be hidden, so keep your eyes open. 2) When you spot one, immediately decide if taking action will move you closer to your goals. 3) If your heart and soul tell you to go for it, jump in with both feet, commit to your action, and get busy turning that opportunity into the luck you’ve been seeking. In the future, when somebody asks how you’ve been so lucky in your life, tell them that you like to stay busy. The rest takes care of itself.

  • Manufacturing More Time to Reach Your Goals

    14/07/2021 Duration: 09min

      What if I were to tell you "the thing" you want to do or be will happen when you do something else? With so much happening in everyday life, it's easy to get caught up in the rhythm of the day. It's like engaging the auto-pilot and sitting back and enjoying the flight called life. But what happens when things get bumpy, and you need to change your trajectory? That's what happened to a client recently. The first question I asked and somebody seeks advice is, “What are we working on today?” Keep in mind, as they fill me in on their outcome, I expect my answer will be 180 degrees from what they think they are going to hear. "You call your company Motivation To Move. Well, I've built a successful company, but I've let myself go. I need the motivation to lose weight and get in shape." Starting with his outcome, my client's question was reasonable. But being reasonable doesn't always lead you to the result you want. Sometimes you have to dig deeper to find the unreasonable cause. When you do, everything changes,

  • Are Emotional Triggers Getting The Best of You?

    13/07/2021 Duration: 08min

      Have you ever caught yourself doing or saying something you swore you would never do?  You are TRIGGERED! It can be frustrating when you set the rules and don't follow them. Sometimes you put your foot in your mouth. Sometimes you put the pizza in your mouth. In any case, your emotional habits are triggering your actions. Usually, before you can do anything about it. Controlling behaviors that have been on auto-pilot for years takes: 1) Catching yourself after the trigger, notice your mistake, and stop it sooner next time. 2) Catching yourself while you are being triggered. Get control as soon as you can. You’re getting better. 3) Catching yourself before you ae trigger and avoid it altogether. Your life is now in your control. Don’t let emotional triggers throw you off track of your goals. Pay attention to your behaviors and make small adjustments until you get what you want.

  • Prepare For Greatness

    12/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    With the craziness of life, are you having difficulty breaking through to the greatness that is YOU? What does greatness take? 1) Imagination. Your ability to form images, ideas, and sensations in your mind. Without help from anything or anybody. 2) Enthusiasm. Living life with the excitement of feeling is PASSION. Only involve yourself in activities that you are enthusiastic about. 3) Persistence. Life is long. Things take time. Learn to love being doggedly persistent. It will serve you well. 4) Faith. Live your life in complete trust and confidence in someone or something. Have faith in yourself. Imagination. Enthusiasm. Persistence. Faith. That's living. Imagine how good it could be with a bit of Gratitude?

  • Start Living Your Perfect Day

    09/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    What if every day, for the rest of your life, was perfect?  If you build it, they will come! Your subconscious mind is a beautiful thing. You can engage its power to create your Perfect Day. Here’s how: 1) Write down a clear, event-by-event vision of what your perfect day would be. What will you do today? 2) There are no rules. No limitations. No consequences. Don’t be shy. Be honest about what you want. 3) Believe it can be yours. You deserve it. You must believe something is possible before it will become possible. If you follow these steps, your subconscious mind will seek ways to make your dreams come true. All it needs is a partner willing to take action, and that’s your job.

  • What if Today Was Your Last

    08/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you do today? How about a week, month, or year? What would be necessary for you? The truth is that we all will move on from this world in the coming days, weeks, months, or years. You can’t escape the escape. How will you live today? Will you spend more time with family, write, travel, get famous, make money? Whatever your answer, you should begin as soon as possible. Live like tomorrow will never come, and you will always be happy today.

  • Keep Your Plans a Secret

    07/07/2021 Duration: 10min

    In the last few years, it has become increasingly popular for people to share every little aspect of their lives with others. But, when it comes to getting what you want in life, keeping your plans to yourself is a powerful tool The 4th of July has just passed, and when I arrived at my desk on Monday, I had two messages from clients that made me smile. The first said, "I decided to spend my weekend practicing what I do in private so that I will be praised in public." That's something I’ve said and done many times. The second client told me they had completed a new project over the weekend and heading in a new direction. When I mentioned they had never said a word to me about it, they said, "I know. I'm learning that nobody needs to know what I'm doing to do. I'll do it, and they can catch up." My heart smiled as I witness three powerful tools impact my client's lives: 1) Practice in private until you are ready to share with the world. Nobody needs to know how you got so good at what you do. 2) There's no need

  • Keeper of the Vision

    06/07/2021 Duration: 11min

    Do you have an image in your mind of what you would like your life to be - except when life gets in the way? There's no doubt that daily life events have a funny way of distracting us from reaching goals. It's just too easy to put them on the back burner. That's why you need to become the keeper of your vision. Every day thousands of opportunities will arrive on your path and detour you from what you want. That's why it's up to you to guard your vision by asking a simple question - Will this opportunity move me closer to the lifestyle I desire or further away? Simple. Know YOUR vision. Defend YOUR vision. Live YOUR Vision.

  • Don’t Be Who You Are Not

      Are you striving for something different but don’t know where to begin? I have a client who is 100 pounds overweight and decided to get healthy. She had no idea how. My advice was simple. If your mind is telling you something you are doing is NOT who you are - it’s time to make an easy change: If you know lousy food is NOT who you - give it up. If your lack of exercise is NOT who are you - give it up. If lack of focus is NOT who you are - give it up. Give up anything that is NOT who you feel you are on the inside. You’ll like what remains.

  • How to Maintain Momentum

    02/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    Steven Covey called it sharpening the saw. If you take a break to sharpen the blade, you will always cut more wood. The same applies to life. My formula is Ritual, Rest, Rejuvenate, Reactivate. Repeat 1) Success comes when you perform ritual actions every day. Figure out what works and do it. 2) Running full-out all the time is not sustainable. You must stop and rest. 3) Resting allows your body and mind to rejuvenate and become healthy again. 4) When you are ready, it's time to reactivate action mode. 5) Repeat until you get what you want. It's easier to cut more wood when you take a break to sharpen your saw. A walk in the park on a busy day counts too.

  • Removing Blocks That Get in Your Way

    01/07/2021 Duration: 09min

    When life gets in the way, do you get frustrated about being blocked?  I learned a long time ago that getting blocked is an everyday occurrence. The bigger my goals, the more blocks would arrive. I could either live with endless frustrations or find a better way. It came down to understanding: 1) Blocks have nothing to do with who you are. Self-inflicted or caused by others, they still have nothing to do with you as a person. 2) If you want something, there is always a way to get it. Always. You may not like the path. Your ego may get in the way. It may scare you. There is still a way to get what you want. 3) Removing blocks from your life takes nothing more than commitment and action. That’s call passion. No block can stand up to passion. The next time frustration gets in your way, blow it off and keep moving. There is always a way to get what you want.

  • Good Habits Good Life

    30/06/2021 Duration: 09min

    Whatever you get in life is a result of your daily habits. What is a habit? According to the dictionary, it is a settled or regular tendency or practice. It is also something that is especially one that is hard to give up. Good habits or bad habits are hard to give up. If that’s the case, you may as well choose good habits. In a survey of 233 self-made millionaires, here’s what people who are successful at anything have in common: They get up early, read a lot, and spend 15 to 30 minutes each day on focused thinking. Good habits, done daily, create success. They make exercise a priority, spend time with people who inspire them, pursue their own goals. Settled habits maintain success. They get enough sleep, have multiple income streams, avoid time-wasters. If you want better results, it’s simple as having a solid list of good habits that you do every day.

  • Stages of Changing Your Life

    29/06/2021 Duration: 10min

    As we get closer to Independence Day, I've noticed two kinds of people crossing my path. Those who are contemplating making change, and those who are taking action toward change. Winston Churchill said, "To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often." If that's the case, it's time to get moving. That means accelerating your progress through the stages of change: 1) Pre-Contemplation. You may are intending to take action but are unaware that your behavior is the problem. 2) Contemplation. You recognize the problem and start to debate the pros and cons of your actions. 3) Preparation. You intend to take action soon. You may even begin small steps. 4) Action. The process of making the specific changes required to create your new life begins. 5) Maintenance. Sustain your efforts for at least six months. You will likely achieve a life-long transformation. 6) Termination. You have zero temptation and are sure you will not return to your old unhealthy habits. Winston Churchill said something els

    Over the years, I have personally produced over 10,000 podcasts, and every one of them begins with the written word. Even though that makes my mouth and my fingers my most exercised body parts, it has also given me lots of opportunities to learn to keep my words flowing. If you're like most people, you have found yourself sitting in front of a blank screen, praying for inspiration. It could writer's block, procrastination, or maybe you stayed up late watching Netflix. In any case, there's a simple solution to always having a starting point. Any project I need to wrap my head around begins by capturing the ideas that flow into my mind throughout the day. Even turning the radio off on a 20-minute drive can provide a treasure-trove of useable nuggets. Next, I tuck those ideas away in a safe place, with no organizing, editing, or re-writing. I grab the thoughts out of the air, jot a note or record a memo, put them away, and let them simmer. When I'm ready to get to work, I take 15 minutes the day before to review
