My Enemy Within

‘If we are honest with ourselves, we would quote the beloved cartoon character Pogo, who said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.”‘ — Wealth Watchers — Alice Wood. If you really want to get ahead in life, you have to come to terms with this one simple fact: You are holding yourself back! Conquer this and you can achieve pretty much anything your little heart desires. Accept this and you will realize that you need to do some work on yourself. Know this in your heart and your actions will begin to change, almost effortlessly, in the direction of […]

Past, Present, and Future

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard. The world is far from fair. You can only do your best and hope for the best. But you can also help your odds by deciding for yourself where you are going and how you plan to get there. Live for today, plan for tomorrow and learn from yesterday. We are great at living for today. We are poor at learning from yesterday, and we are downright terrible at planning for tomorrow. You need to become good at all three. The past, the present, and the future are […]

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.” ― Henry David Thoreau. Here lies the crossroads to a better life. We are always living the life we see for ourselves. Our life today is what we have imagined. In other words, we are living our dreams, our goals, our wants. As hard as this is to believe, or as depressing as it might be, our life is shaped and molded by us. What we think we can accomplish, we […]

What is your intent?

Your future intent will determine your present actions every day” ― Flight Plan ― Brian Tracy. What is it that determines what you have done, or what you are about to do? Your future intent – what you see for your life somewhere down the road, or, put another way, your goals, your plans, your dreams, – is a powerful driving force. If you haven’t set any goals, your present actions are still determined by your future intent. If you want more out of life, you need to set goals that are above what you currently have. If you don’t […]
