Here’s a quick sketch to illustrate Goal-Setting – big goals give your life passion and direction.
Did you know that you have over 50,000 conversations with yourself each day?
It’s unbelievably true. Unfortunately, most of these conversations are about yourself, and according to research, 80% of these are negative thoughts.
This means we have over 40,000 negative thoughts each day.
We spend so much of our time telling ourselves we’re not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not strong enough, not creative enough, not talented enough.
You’ve got to silence thoughts negative thoughts…
Just this past week I took on the role of coaching my son’s soccer team. The only way I would agree to do this though was to get each of the players written agreement that they would attend all training sessions.
I appointed a Manager, who is one of the fathers of one of the team members, and three of the best players to assist me as assistant coaches.
And then first up my aim was to create a vision for winning, take a whole bunch of individuals and form them into a team, and concentrate on getting them fit or conditioning them so that they could last the games and the season with a limited number of injuries.
Those same principles can be applied to living a successful life…
1. A VISION FOR WINNING
Without a vision people perish. Without a goal you will lack purpose and direction.
Each time I expand my business I need to renew my vision. And it is the vision that allows me to grow and to expand. First the vision, then the reality.
So if you want to win in life you first need to get a vision of winning. See yourself succeeding. Write down the life you see yourself living. Review it regularly and then step out of the boat and walk on the water. You will not drown. The vision will carry you through storm and wind. And before you know it, you will be living the vision and be ready to create yet another vision that goes even further beyond your wildest dreams.
2. PLAY AS A TEAM
You can’t do life alone. Solitude is only meant for lives for a short time. In order to grow you need to be part of a team.
A successful businessman once told me that the day he started to become rich was the very first day he hired someone in his business. I have recently hired an additional 9 people in my business and even though the expense for me at this time was a stretch, already the stretch is paying handsome dividends and I’m starting to be freed up like never before to do those things that I really need to do.
3. CONDITION YOURSELF FOR THE GAME OF LIFE
If you do not spend the correct time in preparation you could find yourself running out of steam. So spend time building your heart, your mind and your spirit. As the good book says, you find more about a person in a crisis than at any other time. That’s when the true character of an individual is revealed.
So prepare yourself by soaking yourself in a positive environment, reading positive books and being surrounded by positive groups of people.
The other day, as I was interviewing a salesperson for my business, he asked me how I dealt with stress. My response was ‘I pray’. That is one part of conditioning that has carried me through some of the roughest and treacherous periods of my life. But the habit of prayer also sustains me when the seas of my life are calm. Whether rough or smooth I have learnt to condition my life.

I’ve created a new website on a new domain for my cartoon service… http://www.thecartoonstudio.com
Please have a look and let me know your thoughts.
It’s Friday! And Feeling Great!
I love this quote and it goes so well with my cartoon…
“So many people will tell you ”no”, and you need to find something you believe in so hard that you just smile and tell them ”watch me”. Learn to take rejection as motivation to prove people wrong. Be unstoppable. Refuse to give up, no matter what. It’s the best skill you can ever learn.”
― Charlotte Eriksson
Success – it’s not always as easy as people think it is…
Other ‘success’ articles….
‘It is in the ring where one is bloodied and bruised, but it is also in that same ring where the victor is applauded. I will press on!’
Success was never designed for the frail of heart nor the timid. It is something that most of us will have to fight for with all of our might. And once you’ve got it, you may still need to fight to keep it. Success is not for the weak. It is for the brave. It is for the dreamer. It is for the believer. Success demands blood, sweat and tears, because it knows that success won easily often leads to success easily lost. However, success won through the heat of battle will make your victory sweet and your success appreciated. Do not despise the fight. For from the darkness will arise the light.
Keep away from people who try and belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great. – Mark Twain
