Is It Possible To Care TOO Much?

Why is you care so muchI don’t know how long this post will be. I usually plan and look at everything first and then let the words flow after. This subject came to me after reading a letter and if it’s short, the message will be, I hope, a strong one. If it flows, then it will be hopefully even better!

I have always tried to listen to people and help with whatever I can. I have had people tell me I care TOO much. Moreso when it comes to business. I know the value of what I know and yet I still want to give more than I take.

Thing is, I look at the “professional” career people like lawyers, doctors and the like and ask Continue reading

Half Hearted Doesn’t Get You Started.

don't be half hearted to start businessIt doesn’t matter what your business or job, if you don’t commit to doing something you love, you’re in danger of getting into the “half hearted” zone. This is more dangerous when you have your own business, but could also mean losing a job.

The first thing you need to look at is your own desire to do the job at hand. If there is something in the business that you see as lucrative and that is the ONLY reason you want to do it, there is the possibility (or worse) that you can enter into it half heartedly. So, ask yourself if it is something that Continue reading

Why Being Scared Of The Future Should Be Banned.

fear of what\'s aheadIt’s true that many are afraid of what the future has to offer. Why is it that the future is so scary?

I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?

Because of the reaction he was getting to his work! Outside influences were the issues that were making him think he wasn’t good enough. What could he do to make this change?

I believe there are Continue reading

Practice Is A Daily Business.

Practice Makes PerfectPractice is something we all need to get to grips with in our everyday business and life. Learning the skills we use is one thing, but practice is how we perfect them. Many will “shy away” from practice because it may remind you of tasks that were seen as chores when a child. This would be more relevant for someone who learned music as an example, but the practice was something “to be avoided” because it’s “boring”. After all, we just want to play that tune, so why do I need to do scales?

Too many times, we as humans look to get to the gratifying point of what we’re doing, but forget that Continue reading

Learn The Game, Then Be The Best Player.

Play the game and be the bestHere we are at part 10 of 10 in the series of articles covering the principles of the great Albert Einstein.

I will be talking about learning about your niche and then going out and crushing it!

“You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.” ~ Einstein

This statement can be based on so many things in life, ranging from sport to business. The best teams mostly win the most prizes, but this doesn’t mean that the team is full of the very best players. There is more to a team than just being the best individual. This, of course, doesn’t mean that the best teams cannot contain the best player of all. That could be YOU in your chosen field as long as Continue reading

Repetition Is Both Good And Bad.

being repetitive is good and badPart 8 of the series based on the 10 main principles of Albert Einstein. In this post I will discuss repetition and why it can be both good and bad. Good is great, but bad is something to beware of and so easy a trap to fall into.

Einstein had a philosophy around this and thought it as:

“Insanity – doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Of course, this is based around the “bad” side of repetition and this should be avoided. Of course, it’s a very easy trap to get caught in and can lead to frustration and Continue reading

Be Prepared To Make Mistakes.

A mistake made is naturalWelcome to part 5 of 10 on the principles that Einstein based his life on.

It’s a well known fact that we all make mistakes, but are you prepared to actually make mistakes in order to move forward in your business and life?

Einstein said “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

People make mistakes all the time, but we hate to do that don’t we? Making a mistake leads to one emotion that we all want to avoid – FEAR! If we are to move forward and make the best life and business we can, then it’s inevitable that we make mistakes at some time in the process of living and working. How we deal with it makes Continue reading

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

How Do You Define Desperation And How Can It Affect Your Business?

Desperation is the feeling that you have when you are in such a bad situation that you will try anything to change it.” ~ Collins English Dictionary

How do you define desperationThis is just one way to look at desperation and define it in the clearest way possible for all of us to understand and relate to it. Why is there so much “desperation” in the world and how can we turn away from it and look towards INSPIRATION instead?

Being desperate in your life and business is in itself a negative reaction to what is around you. Of course we are ALL looking to progress, make money and have a better life for our family and ourselves too. We all WANT that Continue reading
