Bold statement, but something I believe in.
Welcome to part two of ten lessons the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. On this subject of perseverance he said: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
When this was discussed and shared in the mentoring group I am a member of, the statement made was that “perseverance is priceless”, which it absolutely is. When you are looking to make improvements in your life and business, you need to persevere towards your goals, but if you can add persistence in taking the right actions Continue reading

Personal trainers look for doing one more of something to find the maximum level achievable and then repetition of that level leads to better results and adopting this attitude to business will increase results and benefits for that business.

My thanks to Mark Harbert for these tips. I found them inspiring and something that resonated with me a lot. Question is have you made a decision? I know that it took me a while to make a decision to draw a line in the sand EVERY day and there would be NOTHING that would get in my way. The three tips based on decisions were something that actually happened to me.

What floats your boat? When you’re out to find a way to be achieving success, what better than to find something you are passionate about and then work with people and a business that truly inspires you?
When going online with my business, the biggest hurdle I found when creating content was getting the ideas.

The people I work with inspire me, the stories inspire me and my focus on my goals inspire me. Now I don’t seem to have any problems with content. Continue reading
