I found you the ways to address the issue

Comments Off on I found you the ways to address the issue

Over the last while, you’ve probably noticed that there seems to be a shortage of money and time. We’re overwhelmed with things to do and have so many new initiatives on the go. That’s the way it is for business today. It’s like we have to fix a flat tire while the car is travelling. It’s my view that it isn’t going to change and the car will keep on going faster. What do owners do to ...

Real leadership in business

Comments Off on Real leadership in business

Being a sport fan, I tend to listen to sports all talk radio, watch TV sports and read all I can about my teams. Now, Facebook and Twitter and comments after media articles are available and can be the scourge of the ridiculous. The trolls who like to be cynical and like tearing everyone and everything down can literally drive people’s opinions. The media perpetuates this negative stuff because ...

To be alive.

Comments Off on To be alive.

While Getting ready for my August fishing trip with my ol buddies Larry, Mike and Don it occurred to me what is amazing about fishing and being in a remote fly in lake in North Western Ontario with great people I care about. For me, it is an example of being really alive. First of all, being alive means living as much as you can in the moment, so you are free to see the reality of what is going ...

Comments Off on Conceive, believe, & enthusiastically act upon

When I was a very young man and turned onto success because I took the Dale Carnegie Course, I read “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill. The whole genesis of the book and it’s concepts to me and millions of others was, “whatever a person can conceive and believe and enthusiastically act upon he/she can achieve.  Now all three aspects of this rule was a lifelong study and a challenge ...

Ask yourself this: Who’s influencing you?

Comments Off on Ask yourself this: Who’s influencing you?

When I was 28 years old, Dale Carnegie and Associates, especially the General Manager, big John Cooper, approved my purchase of the Ontario franchise. I was excited and within a couple of weeks, I attended my first owners meeting in Chicago. There was plenty on the agenda but I was more interested in seeking out the top four franchisees in the world and asking for, and receiving, mentoring on ...

Comments Off on 5 principles you could work on to entrench the habit of being happy

Well of course, but you and I have to work at it.      I was reminded of that principle this Monday when I was thinking and concerning over a few important people in my life. A couple of them are addicted to too much smoking, drinking, bad money habits and/or bad eating. You wonder why they don’t listen to their Doctor or take advice from experts. Today there is so much information and help ...

The unrecognized reason why executing a strategy is stopped cold

Comments Off on The unrecognized reason why executing a strategy is stopped cold

She was sitting in a cowered position hoping I wouldn’t ask her a question, let alone demonstrate the behaviours we were working on. I thought “How does she do the job now or what we (the client) are asking her to do in the future?” This is a common occurrence in a training or business meeting for anyone trying to get employees to adapt to what’s required in their business. Changes are ...

How to overcome stress and worry

Comments Off on How to overcome stress and worry

Just a few years ago was the passing of Robin Williams. It was sad because so many people have been touched by his genius. He made you laugh, cry, and think. I loved “Dead Poet’s Society”. He was a child at heart. You just knew he was a terrific guy. How can anyone get in such a black hole that they can’t see a way out? I don’t profess to know anything about depression, so it’s a ...

This could be your ticket to success!

Comments Off on This could be your ticket to success!

Lately I’ve been thinking again about what it takes to be successful. This topic has taken up my thoughts since 1964 when I was one of those who picked up the ball to keep Dale Carnegie’s vision alive in Canada after his death. Dale created a vision for me and millions of others that I could succeed in life despite any perceived drawbacks . He actually proved to us that we could feel more ...
