"Leaders aren’t born, they are made. They are made by hard effort, which is the price which all of us must pay to  achieve any goal which is worthwhile."                        Vince Lombardi

"Great leaders do many things, but perhaps the most telling characteristic is a natural and authentic ability to inspire excellence while maintaining strength and a modicum of humility. These are the people who will lead you to success – in the battlefield or in the boardroom. The true reflection of a leader’s ability is measured not only in a company’s bottom line, but also in the success and empowerment of each individual.
Being a boss doesn’t necessarily make you a leader; nor does being bossy. In fact, a leader isn’t always the boss. The difference between the two is this: Bosses manage, leaders inspire. Anyone can manage, but not everyone can lead.
Great leaders command confidence and trust not by demanding, but by encouraging."
These words of wisdom on leadership from Amy Cosper, Editor in Chief of Inc. Magazine, couldn’t be more on point. As you lead, keep in mind the difference between being a boss and being a leader.

"You have powers you never dreamed of. You can do things you never thought you could do. There are no limitations in what you can do except the limitations of your own mind." – Darwin P. Kingsley

We are each meant to be impact people. My son, Richard, once wrote this sweet and comical line, “Faster than a negative thought, more powerful than a bad mood, able to leap their greatest fear in a single bound: It’s Impact Person!”
Today, decide to be an impact person. You can find a moment in your day where you are crossing someone else’s path and be a demonstration, an example, and a presence of love even with a smile, a word or a thought.

"Why don’t people like me?"
It’s a question you’ve undoubtedly asked yourself before. As a writer. As an artist. As a manager. As a creative professional. As a human being. We genuinely want people to like us. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
But what is wrong is trying to make people like you. It’s not your job to convince everyone – or anyone – that you’re awesome. In fact, if you find yourself needing to be persuasive to gain friends, supporters, fans, and followers, you’re probably doing something wrong.
Instead of telling – start showing. Focus on doing great work. Focus on perfecting your craft. Don’t focus on what everyone else IS doing – focus on what they ARE NOT doing – that’s where you’ll find your opportunity to shine.
By doing great things – and sticking to your guns – you may lose some support – but the real love, support, friendship, and follow-ship will undoubtedly shine through.

It is important to remember that it is your thoughts and feelings together that create with the law of attraction, and you cannot separate them. Also remember that it’s your feelings that are summing up your overall frequency and telling you what you are creating in this moment. So how are you feeling right now? Could you feel better? Well then, do what it takes right now to feel better. Rhonda Byrne

Dear Genius,

How did Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and Jesus survive weeks without food?

How did Leonardo da Vinci make advances in anatomy, astronomy, and physics that were centuries ahead of scientific discovery—and still find time to paint the most iconic picture in history?

What did people like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Albert Einstein do to help them pioneer remarkable breakthroughs and accomplishments?

They all used unique meditation techniques and mental exercises.

And these days, Oprah Winfrey, Sting, the Dalai Lama, Gwyneth Paltrow, and other accomplished individuals from every background and field of endeavor do it too.

Meditation is the doorway to innovative thinking, knowing, being healthy, finding calm inner strength, and… quite frankly… living happily, productively, and abundantly in this world.

And—contrary to what you may think—you can do it almost anywhere… even when you’re driving!

You’ve probably heard this before…

Every answer you seek is already inside your mind.

If that is true (and, based on the amazing benefits listed above, I believe it is), how do you get to those answers and insights when you need them?

If the genuine solutions and guidance you need are already in your mind, why are they sometimes so darn difficult to find?

On the other hand…

As hard as it can be to access this genuine information, every now and then the knowledge and insights just come to you like magic.

Why doesn’t that happen more often? Or, more importantly, how can you make it happen at your command?

The reason you get stuck has little to do with what’s in your mind.

The problem is with what’s not in your mind.

What your brain does normally

The electrical activity of the brain is measured in terms of “waves.” That means if you hook your head up to a machine that measures the electrical output of your brain, you’ll see it form a wave on the screen.

Your brain produces five basic types of waves. They’re called Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma. While this sounds like a college fraternity, it’s really a measure of how fast or slow your brain is working at any given time.

Now here’s where what’s not in your brain comes in…

During most of the day when you’re working, texting, emailing, driving, or doing anything active, your brain waves are primarily in a Beta pattern.

But, if you want to find a creative solution to a problem or receive insights or breakthrough ideas on a challenge you’re facing, your brain needs to slow down to a Theta, Alpha, or Theta-Alpha pattern. These types of patterns occur when you’re drowsy, relaxed, and reflective (but not sleepy), or in a state in which a silent current of thoughts, images, and memories emerge spontaneously in your mind.

The problem is, with updates and news coming at you by the minute, and distractions and temptations just a keystroke away, it can be very difficult to achieve these slower brainwave patterns during the course of a normal day.

The result? You often feel overwhelmed and off-balance.

The doorway to breakthrough thinking

How can you slow down your brain waves even when you’re surrounded by chaos and stimulation?

By doing what Jesus, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and many other brilliant individuals have done:

Develop your mental focus.

Mental focus enables you to shut out the noise that almost always surrounds you and to get calm in the center of the storm. It is the single best tool you have for releasing the power of your mind and allowing the answers, breakthroughs, and insights you seek to be heard.

The best way to develop laser-sharp focus is to meditate. Meditation—in all its various forms—is supported by decades of scientific research and backed up by centuries of real-life experiences. It is proven to help you let go of all the content that generally occupies your consciousness by slowing down your brain waves. With your mind clear, you can access the knowledge that’s locked inside.

The fastest way to access the miraculous haven
inside your mind

At Nightingale-Conant, it has been our pleasure to work with some of the most incredible minds of our generation. After a while, we started to notice a common thread between many of our most successful authors…

The most successful, happy, and well-balanced people all have the power to focus their minds. By developing a focused mind, these individuals have been able to rise to incredible levels of achievement in just about every field.

But, slowing down your brain waves to have a focused mind can be challenging—even for the experts! That’s especially true with the stresses and constant stimulation of modern life. Now, more than ever, you need to develop ways to gain instant access to the calm, all-knowing haven that’s inside your mind.

And that’s why we’re so excited to introduce a brand-new comprehensive program called Focused Mind, Powerful Mind: Releasing Your Mind’s Greater Powers with Advanced Meditation Techniques.

It’s an advanced mind-training program that combines meditation and mental exercises in a whole new way so you can develop laser-sharp focus like some of the greatest thinkers of all time and perform as never before…

Successful Networker Ideas or Reality POSITIVE

Words of Wisdom come to all who Hear!  Gray

A positive mental attitude is an irresistible force that knows no such thing as an immovable body.
Time and again we hear stories about ordinary people who do seemingly impossible things when they find themselves in an emergency situation. They perform herculean feats of strength and endurance, things they never dreamed they were capable of doing. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could harness that strength and make it available anytime you need it? You can — if you believe you can. No doubt you can remember a time in your life when you were exceptionally focused on your objective, a time when you achieved more in less time than ever before. Perhaps it was an impending vacation that motivated you to get everything done before you departed, or perhaps it was a “must pass” exam that helped you focus your concentration. The intensity that you developed in those situations is always available to you when you have a Positive Mental Attitude. Napoleon Hill

Positive Ideas

Here are positive ideas to aid productivity, success and happiness. The ideas are practical and constructive. Go through these various articles, written by experienced contributors, and find positive ideas that you can adopt and use.

1. Improve Your Day with Tiny or small-Meditations

Your thoughts ceate your futureImagine a page of text with each word joined to the next, with no commas, no sentences and no paragraphs: just a page full of words with no spaces. To read the page, to absorb the information and comprehend it, would be difficult and stressful.

See the example inside the box that follows …

Writteninformationwithnoorganisedbreaksmakescomprehensiondifficult
Wellplannedtextwithgoodsentenceandparagraphconstructionwillaidthe
readersabilitytounderstandtheinformationtherein.

Now, here is the same sentence with organised breaks …

Written information, with no organised breaks, makes comprehension difficult. Well-planned text, with good sentence and paragraph construction, will aid the reader’s ability to understand the information therein.

Many people live each day just like the text in the first box. They rush from one task to the next without even a short pause to prepare the mind for the next activity. This has the cumulative effect of creating a loss of clear focus, decreasing efficiency and increasing stress as the day progresses.

“” Put some mental “paragraph” breaks in your busy day. Between each task, pause for a just a couple of minutes “”

2. Setting Personal Goals

Without personal goals life can be an aimless journey lacking positive direction and achievement. If your life is to follow a Positive Path you need a plan, and to establish a plan personal goals are necessary.

Before you start setting your personal goals you need to consider what you want to achieve with your life. One mistake many people make is that their personal goals just relate to career pursuits rather than to all the important areas of life. This can lead to an unbalanced existence.

build blocks goalsTo focus your personal goal setting on the various areas in your life, consider setting goals in each of the following categories. They are listed in alphabetical order for convenience, however where each goal category is ranked in importance is really up to the individual.

  • Career
    What is your chosen vocation? What level do you want to reach in your career, and by when?
  • Community Service
    Do you want to help make the world a better place? If so, how?
  • Creative
    Do you want to achieve any creative goals? If so, in what artistic pursuit?
  • Education
    Is there any knowledge you want to acquire in particular? What information and skills will you need to achieve your other goals?
  • Family
    Do you want to be a life partner and parent? If so, how are you going to do this well? What kind of relationship do you want with your partner, your children and other family members?
  • Financial
    How much money do you want to earn at various stages of your life? What planning is required in order to accumulate wealth, use it wisely and share the benefits with those you choose?
  • Physical
    Are there any fitness and sporting goals you want to achieve? What steps are you going to take to achieve this?
  • Recreation
    How do you want to enjoy yourself? Are there any interests, hobbies, pastimes or social activities in which you want to be involved?

Write down your goals in each of your categories and consider them carefully. Are4 men going up stairs they realistic? What is your time-line to achieve them? Are there different time-lines for different goals? Next, divide each goal into smaller intermediate time-line goals that will ,help you plan your Positive Path and measure your progress. These will be progressively smaller goals that will eventually lead you to your major goals. For example, if you are planning a time-line of 20 years, divide goals into smaller goals that need to be achieved if you are to reach your major goals. To do this, set a 5-year goal, a 1-year goal, a 3-month goal and a 1-month goal in each category and set an estimated start month and year for each time-line.Remember, your circumstances at any given time can impact on your goals. New experiences and new information can see your goals and priorities change with time. This is part of the real world, however goal changes need to be scrutinised before they are adopted to ensure that they are realistic and not just a diversion with little chance of success.

Three hand globeBy keeping yourself well informed about the world around you and your place in it, and by being honest with yourself, you will find that the quality and realism of your goal setting will get better with time and practice.

Opportunities are all around us 24 hours a day BUT We have to have Open Eyes, Minds and Ears to see them.   Gray this book will open them all   The choice is yours, enjoy

Opportunity often knocks — only to find no one in.
The world is filled with unfortunate souls who didn’t hear opportunity’s knock at the door because they were down at the convenience store buying lottery tickets. They have never learned that, as Branch Rickey, general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1942-50, once observed, “Luck is the residue of design.” You will be surprised how much your luck will improve when you make sure you are prepared to take advantage of opportunities. How many times have you had a great idea that you failed to act upon, only to discover later that someone used the same idea to start a business, get a promotion, or find a better job? Resolve now to get into action when you have a good idea. Don’t wait for something to happen — make it happen! Napoleon Hill

Successful & Ambitious Networker

Success doesn’t come to you – you go to it. — Marva Collins

Ambitious Networker–awesome business = success

Be aware of the big difference between inspired action and activity. Activity comes from the brain-mind and is rooted in disbelief and lack of faith – you are taking action to "make" your desire happen. Inspired action is allowing the law to work through you and to move you.  Activity feels hard. Inspired action feels wonderful. May the joy be with you,  Rhonda Byrne
