Bright Ideas For Personal Development

I’m sure you have a bright personal development idea hidden somewhere in the back of your mind that you just can’t wait to test out. Of course you’re not the only one with the bright idea. So what motivates you to churn those creative, or even inspiring juices to its utmost flavor?

It’s always best to set up a personal goal where you can accomplish the most in record time, maybe like mowing the lawn in an hour before the big game on TV. A correct and positive attitude in whatever you do will make personal development easier, and even enjoyable.

Here are some personal development tips to make it through the week even if you’re just sitting in your favorite couch. An idea takes time to form in your head and is always at work while you are busy sitting.

Having a bit of positive thinking can help you realize things that are never thought possible. Thinking big is indeed the way of thinking that made people prosperous.

Take passionate action towards living your life by design. Talk is cheap. Action = deposits in the bank of a passionately authentic future. Without it, passion is void.

This is a perfect example where personal development is made of where you start by tinkering with your mind, then with your hands. And if the idea weakens, you can always go back to it later until you finish it.

Commit to your personal development as well as those you love to create powerfully a life you can love. Instead of reacting, commit to creating from your heart and soul, out of love rather than fear. The American Dream will always be there, but a dream will still be a dream without motion. Be amazed as the transformation begins.

Recognize and embrace the thought that each moment is perfect regardless of its outcome. Every time you hit on something that may appear too extreme, why not give it a shot and see if it will work. You will be surprised to see of there are other ways to get the task done in time. If you are not pleased with the outcome of your personal development, decide to use that moment to learn from and make the appropriate shift.

Dwell completely in a place of gratitude. Learn to utilize what you have in your hands and make use of it in the most constructive personal development way. Slipping into neediness will become less of a habit when you repeatedly shift towards gratitude, away from poverty consciousness.

Use a Passion Formula of Recognize/Reevaluate/Restore in place of the Shoulda/Woulda/Coulda whirlwind. The former is based in increased knowledge and abundance while the latter focuses on scarcity and lack. As you face people or tasks that may seem harder than scaling the summit of the Himalayas, allow yourself to realize that the task is just as important as giving out orders to your subordinates. You would rather be richly passionate!

Believe that you are the architect of your destiny. No one can take personal development of your passionate future from you except for you! Create your life authentically. As long as there’s still breath in your body, there is no end to how much you can accomplish in a lifetime. The concept of thinking big is all about enjoying your work, which would lead to celebrate a discovery that is born within your hands. Watch everything flow into place with perfect, passionate precision.

It’s interesting how people get wallowed up by something trivial as learning to use a computer, when nowadays that top computer companies are manufacturing software that even the kids can do it. I don’t mean to be condescending, but that’s the idea of not having any positive thinking in your life-you’ll just end up as a dim bulb in a dark corner. So instead of subjecting yourself to what you will be doomed for, make your path by taking the first step with a positive personal development.

Get Rid of Impossible

“If you have faith as mustard seed… nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:20 NKJV).

As the concept, impossible, I remember the late great Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s book “You Can If You Think You Can.” Dr. Peale described the curious procedure of a well-known inspirational great writer named Napoleon Hill, whom I greatly admired.

“As a young man he had the ambition to be a writer. To accomplish this object he knew he would need to become expert in the proper use of words. Words would be his stock-in-trade, but since he was a poor boy and a deficient in education, good friends assured him his ambition was impossible.”

Dr. Peale added, “Young Napoleon saved his money and bought the finest, most complete and beautiful dictionary, and he meant to master them. But then he did a strange thing. He turned to the impossible and with fine scissor clipped it out of the dictionary and threw it away. Then he had a book of words devoid of that negative concept, impossible. Thereafter he built his whole career on the premise that nothing is impossible to the person who wants to grow and outgrow.”

I remember the saying of the great Goethe “Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”

The sayings above of the great philosopher is really true, I proved it in myself!

I’ll still remember when I was a young boy. I have a lot of great dreams for my future. But how could it be? It’s the same questioned that always lingering in my mind. I’m the product of a broken home family, grew up in the street, and stayed with different and even with the cruel person in this world! It’s good that was over! The bitter memory of my childhood!

I have learned through my life experiences and studies from the profiles as well as writings of the great wise men that the only way to beat the odds in life is to face as well as take it as a challenge and continue on remaking ourselves into a better and productive individual! And also by making God as a partner in every aspiring in life because in Him nothing is impossible!

Because of the positive attitude that I had and by encouraging, motivating, and nurturing myself to believe in the beauty of my dreams, I gradually finished my Bachelor’s degree in History and Minor in Political Science and passed the Teachers Board Exam with my own self-determination and now I am working as School Guidance Counselor, College Instructor, and Working Students Supervisor.

One hundred percent, I certainly agree in the sayings of the late great president of America, President Calvin Coolidge that “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

To you, my dear readers, I firmly encourage you to read and think of this carefully:

If you have a dreams

Hold on to your dreams

If your dreams die

You’re like a wounded bird without a wing!

People always remember that the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams!

That’s why I would like to remind you, Do your best and God will do the rest!

You Can If You Think You Can!

Wish you many blessings to come and God Bless!

Divorced Dads Tips – Christmas and Holiday Access Tips: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

If you have any questions feel free to ask us. Christmas and holiday day access is one of the biggest problems divorced dads face. The saddest thing are the number of calls we get at our offices from divorced dads for help to see their kids at Christmas.

It saddens me because I was one of those kids who did not see my dad during Christmas. My heart actually goes out to the kids. When you do not see your dad, you think you did something wrong as a kid. We all know that that is not the case. At Christmas time it even feels worse for the many kids who feel this way. My heart also goes out to these kids and their dads.

But here’s the problem the divorced dads face, they feel they are beaten before they even try. So many don’t bother trying. They are overcome with anguish and grief from missing their kids. For example, At least fully two-thirds of the fathers, grandmothers and grandparents that call us, not many of them have not really taken any action up to this point. That’s because they feel that it is totally hopeless and useless to do anything, because they have prejudged the outcome

Of course it is a difficult time. Here is the problem when you want to take action. What happens is the court system becomes a bottleneck and becomes even slower than it normally is, which is already slow, it is at a snail pace. It just makes the stress even worse that you are trying to rush things through and it is just not happening.

That’s why a lot of the people who called in to us are exasperated, frustrated because they don’t have a strategy or answers.

Many are very sad and angry with good reason: After they’ve spent tons and tons of money going through the legal system, they have still have not gotten to the solution that they are looking for, they are exasperated and do not really know what else to do. And now it’s Christmas.

Because these divorced dads are having a difficult time emotionally: They are not getting any kind of support from the system; they are not getting any kind of help from their lawyer that is effective, and as a result they are almost like lost souls. They just do not know what to do.

Most often, they have no strategy and that is huge part of the problem. With any problem in life, if you can sit down and try to actually map out a plan, that is always the best way of proceeding. It is not always easy to do because we are talking about our families here. It is hard to remove emotion, but helps to have a clear head and look at it strictly from a strategic point of view.

Another part of the problem is that most of the people who had called in have been provoked beyond reason, And that they are having a very, very difficult time too, especially when they are suffering all of the above symptoms of discrimination in Family Court.

So what’s the solution?

Coaching and solution focused mentoring that points a divorced dads in the right direction: Finding a father who has been successful in solving this particular problem is crucial, because then he can show what has already worked in his situation.

The important point is this exasperation won’t solve your problems, nor will frustration, nor anger. The # 1 thing successful divorced dads have in common is an open mind and a creative spirit. When there is seemingly no way possible, you must make a way

Like their children when they want something badly they never take NO for an answer. Neither should a divorced dad, no matter the obstacles or challenges. That’s the best present a divorced dad can give their child their can-do spirit the one that overcomes all odds.

That’s a gift a child can take with them all the days of their life.

Sales Programs and Sales Training Courses for Sales Managers

Sales programs and sales training courses can prepare a sales professional for advancement, and keep a sales manager prepared to manage, train, and motivate their sales staff for continuous improvement and a continuous increase in sales.

Sales courses from sales training courses and sales programs will give the new sales manager the background needed to fluently handle the transition from a staff sales professional to a respected sales manager. For a sales manager to be respected, and thus effective, the sales staff must be able to look up to the sales manager for insight, fresh ideas, consultation, management and motivation. Sales programs for sales managers supply the sales training needed to develop a well-respected sales manager that continuously develops and improves with his staff.

Sales programs with sales training courses for sales managers offer training on advanced sales skills as well as sales managerial skills. If a company will not pay for sales manager training, it is still in the sales manager’s best interest to continuously improve his / her skills so that he may effectively perform their managerial responsibilities. Whatever sales and managerial skills are gained can be carried throughout the sales manager’s career.

It is, however, in a company’s best interest to make the investment in sales programs and sales training courses for their sales management. Sales training is contagious. Sales skills gained through sales courses from sales programs will be passed on to the sales staff – assuming the sales manager has refined their communication skills to include one-on-one mentoring, sales training, and on-the-field evaluation and follow-up. If sales training skills have yet to be gained, there are sales programs and sales training courses for sales managers that can train the sales manager to train the sales staff. Investing in sales programs and sales training courses for sales managers is making an investment in your sales manager – and getting a profitable return from your sales staff.

Training courses from sales programs can provide sales managers with the skills they need to manage job constraints that are unique to sales management. Sales programs and sales training courses are available that train sales managers in advanced time management skills, territory management, assessing the strengths and weakness of the sales staff as individuals and as a team, coaching, influence, staff communication, and setting sales goals for a team.

If the sales manager has gained the responsibility of hiring and firing with the newfound management position, sales programs for sales managers can also provide traditional human resource training. Sales programs and sales courses are widely available that can train sales managers to screen potential members for the sales staff, interviewing techniques, evaluation techniques, the legalities of discrimination and sexual harassment, the selection process, and the new hire acclimation process. Sales courses from sales programs for sales managers can also include training in evaluating staff for sales performance reviews and effective staff-management communication skills.

Sales programs and sales training courses are an on-the-job necessity for sales managers. A company that invests in sales training for their sales managers will see the return in the higher efficiencies and stronger selling skills that widen the on-the-job time frame to allow for building more profitable sales that would otherwise go unrealized due to inefficiencies and lack of skills. Sales programs and sales training courses for sales managers will get the sales managers managing the sales staff more efficiently, so your company can spend more time managing the higher profits from the increased sales that accelerated due to your investment in your sales manager’s training.

Is this a good essay?

Softball, my love
As the front window of our one story house, in Wildomar, lay shattered in a thousand pieces, my mom runs in only to shout, “Put that down!” I was only about three at the time, but it was the first time I had ever held a softball bat, but unquestionably not the last.
I don’t recall ever really wanting to play a sport, but on my fourth birthday, my dad decided that he wanted me to play softball for Menifee Valley Girls T-ball. I still remember the day so well, even at such a young age. As soon as I stepped out onto that newly cut landscaped field, with my brand-new equipment, I knew I had fallen in love-with softball.
I had no idea how to play the game, let alone how to throw a ball. During the first few practices, my head was spinning out of control trying to learn how to run the bases, catch a slowly-hit grounder, and other difficult-at-the-time plays. And I didn’t like the sport, not at all. But I stuck to it because the Rose family isn’t quitters. My family has always told me to never give up. And I never did, which really helped me throughout life, too, and not just on the field. Thank God or I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Rose 2
I’m now fifteen years old and still struggling from an excruciatingly painful back injury, still play softball to this day. Doesn’t matter if I’m in pain or not, nothing can keep me from playing the game I love. My coaches, and my teammates, mean a lot to me, probably because they share the same interest as me. Not only that, but they help me when I don’t quit get a certain drill. They help me cope with problems and have the ability to assist me to gain my strength not only physically, but mentally as well. Also, they guide me to pursue my future in getting a softball scholarship and maybe one day playing in the 2016 Softball Olympics in Denmark.
I love softball, period. And I couldn’t imagine my life without it. The blood-tingling, hair-raising, mind-blowing, yet strenuous and challenging game is on my mind, twenty-four-seven. It has made me a better person in ways only some could come to realize. It has taught me that I’m not always the center of attention, life’s not always going to go the way I want it to, to stand up for myself, strength, leadership, and above-all, courage. It has taught me most not to fear anything; to just overcome that fear. And as a cunning man once stated, “Never let the fear or striking out keep you from playing the game,” or how I interpret it: Embrace failure as a learning tool of life. Learn from your mistakes. It keeps me intact on my everyday challenges. So, basically, everyone was put on Earth for a reason. Everyone was bound to do something with their life. Mine just so happens to play an exquisite game of pure bravery and knowledge only few could manage: Softball, my love.

ANY EXTRA IDEAS/HELP WOULD BE GREAT! :)

For once!!! Someone who can actually write an essay!! This is great!! I didn’t find ANY errors in it at all! It’s organized, interesting, and all of the above!
I’m not just saying this to try and get best answer.. I read the entire thing and it actually is REALLY good!

How much does a Tony Robbins life coach cost?

I would like to give a month of life coaching to both my brother and mother for a Christmas present. I have looked but can’t find actual prices anywhere. I just need a ballpark figure so I can know if I can afford it or not. Do you know what it costs?

They have different levels of coaching such as elite or master coaching. The lowest (elite) runs somewhere around $400/month if you pre-pay for at least 6 months. Otherwise, it’s over $600.

Has the "Law of Attraction" worked for you? in positive thinking…CURIOUS!!!?

example
– creating a vision board
– positive energy flow and thinking
– unconscious orders to the universe
– language rules your life
– true forgiveness
I am curious if it has truly worked for you out there.
Because of experience at the back on my mind i am cynical, logical vs more free spirited as i was before.
So…has it worked for you?

No. In fact, even if if had, I wouldn’t know it.
Even if the law of attraction weren’t bull and did work, I still wouldn’t know it.
It’s unprovable, even to the point of being plausible and only works in the sense that you can change your OWN world. Not others.
Oooohhh, this just gets my blood boiling.
Try reading Blink, a book with actual truth to it.
