Refocusing by Reflecting [plus 3 free reports]

There are no straight paths to a worthy goal. If you can reach your goal without deviating from your plan and without getting off track, your goal is either very small, super simple or you are incredibly lucky.

Big goals are achieved by diligently staying on course, and recognizing—and forgiving ourselves—when we get off course. Achieving a worthwhile goal requires a constant effort in refocusing, redirecting, refining and re-evaluating.

And an important part in accomplishing that is the ability and commitment to reflect on our progress.

At the end of the day, the week, the month and the quarter, it’s paramount that we think about what we’ve done, what we haven’t and why. I’m a big fan of WW, WD, WN (What Worked, What Didn’t and What’s Next). It’s a great way to look back on a time period, a project or the system you used to achieve what you wanted.

I’m also a big believer in “Correction Without Invalidation”. This objective reflection and evaluation without guilt is critical in making adjustments, corrections and improvements.

Be sure to schedule your reflection time. Make it part of your routine and you will find it will accelerate your progress and help you be more effective.

Next week, I’m conducting an in-depth training for Diamond Club & Lifetime Gold Members on the best ways to stay on track, get back on track and refocus on what we really want. If you are not yet one of these members, you can become one at either or

Members will be given access information early in the week. And if you are not sure whether you are a lifetime Gold Member or not, please fill out a Help Desk Ticket and we will let you know.

Raising the Bar: Increasing Your Standards of Excellence

PS: We’re sharing a picture, quote and action point (like the one above) several times a week on FaceBook. Like us and you will see them in your news feed.


Things are really heating up for the summer Olympics in London. We’re excited to see these inspiring athletes compete as they represent their respective countries.

Only a tiny part of the populace has the talent, stamina, desire—and the will—to qualify for and compete in The Olympic Games. The vast majority of us will never come close to being in such a spotlight, much less standing on the top step with a gold medal while our national anthem is played.

But you can still win.

You can win at YOUR game. You can win at something that is purposeful, meaningful and worthwhile to YOU. It might not be as public. It may not bring you great fame and fortune, but you can win big, regardless.

First, you have to define the game you want to play. You have to determine what you truly want to achieve. In your game, you get to set the milestones and you get to decide what your breakthroughs can and will be.

This is your life. It may not be The Olympic Games, but your life is worth playing a big game. You may not be able to accomplish EVERYTHING you want, but you CAN accomplish virtually ANYTHING you want. You do want to live it with more purpose, passion and prosperity, don’t you?

Every one of the Olympic athletes practices what I call The Three-C Formula: Clarity, Concentration (focus) and Consistency. They may not realize it, but they are all clear, focused and consistent. And that’s what YOU will have to be in order to win YOUR game.

If you’re unclear about your goals, you should have only ONE goal—get clear on what you TRULY want. Think big, think about what’s really important to you. Go for what makes your heart sing.

The Rest of Your Life . . .

footprintsAny day now, I expect to get the call telling me my mother has passed on.

It‘s been less than two months since she was diagnosed with an incurable and inoperable cancer. And although her mind is strong and clear, every day her body gets weaker.

She has said her goodbyes, she’s at peace and she is without pain. She has nothing to resolve, no regrets and is appreciative of her long, well-lived life.

She will make her transition just as she has lived her 84 years—with grace, dignity, courage and compassion. She’s ready, but we will miss her greatly.

Watching someone experience their last days on earth can’t help but cause one to think more about our own mortality. One of the few things we know for sure is that we will all one day leave this earthly existence. And few of us will know when, where and how it will happen.

Life is short—or so it seems.

Regardless of how many days, months or years we have left, we all want to feel complete when we die. We want to have made a difference. We want to know that we mattered, that we’ve done something of significance.

What about you? What do you want to accomplish with the rest of your life? What dreams do you have left to achieve? What legacy do you want to leave?

My mother did not aspire to greatness. She simply did her best on a consistent basis. The result was, and is, a life well lived and an inspiration to many.

SuccessNet, the organization I founded 16 years ago this month, is dedicated to helping you experience more purpose, passion and prosperity. It—and we—have much more to do. If you have been informed, inspired and empowered to be your best, then I will feel we have succeeded. And I feel confident that the best is yet to come—for you and for SuccessNet.

I encourage you, as I am doing myself, to think deeply about achieving your full and unique potential. Richard Bach wrote, “Here’s a test to find out whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.”

Our Diamond Club and Inner Circle programs are uniquely designed to help you achieve your personal and professional best. And I would be glad to work with you in doing so.
