On Labor Day 64-year-old Diana Nyad completed one of the most intense athletic feats in history. Nyad swam a mere 110 miles from Cuba to Key West without a shark tank and with an indomitable spirit to achieve her life long dream. She had attempted this feat four previous times and failed to reach the end each time. What held her up? Incessant stings by jellyfish, outrageously rough and cold waters, sharks, and you thought you had rough days at work. The former professional swimmer captured hearts around the world when she staggered onto the beach witho
Many of my clients have come in complaining of a lack of motivation; from not being motivated enough on the job, to not being able to diet, quit smoking, or get out of bed in the morning. They desire to achieve both positive and negative motivations—positive motivations and being motivations toward doing something; negative motiviations being toward NOT doing something (not smoking, for example).
After multiple rejections and disappointments, dating might seem like more trouble than it’s worth. But you have to keep trying! If you go out on no less than 2 dates per week for 3 months, there’s an 80% chance that you’ll find love. Do the same thing for 6 months, and there’s a 90% chance! However, you need to be motivated to go on all of these dates and maintain a great attitude on each one. Inspiring yourself isn’t as complicated as you might imagine.

Rather than going to either extreme on the weight spectrum, you should find a happy medium where you feel the most confident and energized. These five tips can help you develop the perfect body for you. 1. Set goals.

“I don’t have the time”, “Some people seem to have lots of time in their hands”, “I could have used the time for something more useful”, “Let me check on Facebook/Internet/email before I finish my own work”. Do these thoughts sound familiar to you? Thought so. These are some of the permanent residents in my head. I understand there are real busy days for all of us and you could use some advice from real celebrities.
Wishing for that perfect pill that will, without fail or side effects, increase your energy, focus, attention, and memory? There are many marketed formulas from Rockstar and 5-hour energy drinks, to expensive prescriptions, over the counter medications and supplements. Some have negative side effects from the high amounts of caffeine or sugar. Others simply lead to a crash a few hours later. Few have any research supporting their claims.
LIFE LESSONS from THE VOICE Auditions The balls of my feet felt like they were on fire after mostly standing in line for almost 6 hours waiting for my turn to sing at The Voice Auditions in New York City. My spouse, Christine, and I arrived at the site an hour before the scheduled time in my pass. I did not realize that thousands more had the same time stamped in their passes. And the line wrapped around a massive structure like Jacob Javits Convention Center, extending as far as 6 more blocks past the center. The hotdog vendor outside made serious business.
If you are reading this you might be like many of us who suffer from procrastination. But don’t stop there – this vice may be just the tip of the iceberg, the symptom of something bigger underneath. Pay attention and address the root cause. For my case I procrastinate for different reasons. For example, when the task:
Ten years ago we were blessed with our first born child. We spent months preparing for this day by reading and watching what it would be like to be parents, purchasing way to much baby stuff, and planning out how we were going to parent this child. Boy oh boy we were in for a shocker after he was born. Our world was turned upside down and so was our marriage. We had prepared for months on how to take care of this little bundle of joy and yet we didn’t place much importance on our marriage.
Each year millions of women (and men) vow to lose weight. Apparently, only about 5% of them succeed for any length of time. From my observations, the ones that don’t succeed spend the rest of the year obsessing about their weight and their lack of weight loss success. How many more years of your life do you want to spend thinking about your weight, clothes size, number on a scale, or your next diet? What fabulous things are you missing out on because you’ve given so much of your energy to either dieting or cheating on your diet?
Words can hurt or heal. Choose the words you say so your voice will be one of encouragement and praise, rather than demeaning and negative. Change the way you talk to others, and change their lives and yours. Empower those you incounter with encouraging words and phrases. I want to share a story with you about why I am so driven to teach, guide and mentor parents, coaches, counselors, police, teachers and other adults who are in a position to work with young people. Tell Me The Words To Say
When I was a kid back in the 60s I was pretty shy, quiet and reserved [not much has changed ☺] and kept pretty much to myself. On Tuesdays in the summertime, I would go with my Dad to the bank to deposit his paycheck. On the drive to the bank we would always pass by a bike shop and to a kid that was like the new car dealer where you could not wait to see all the new ‘rides’. My Dad would have occasion now and again to stop and visit the service department while I happily killed time in the showroom, imagining what it would be like to be the first in the neig
Recently, I wrote here about making the most of time. This month, I have been asked a lot about how people can overcome paralysis and self-sabotage, so I thought I’d pass on my ideas on the subject. Getting in your own way is all about how you relate your yourself. In addition to not managing your time effectively, there are many ways you can stop yourself from getting the most out of life—not enjoying what you have or have accomplished; not being able to get motivated, or finish what you begin; and having a negative focus, which leads to discouragement, anxiety, despair and
