Change Your Stories, Change Your Life
Get coaching that goes deeper than tips and tricks with Daily Boost PREMIUM. Find out more HERE. Change Your Stories, Change Your Life Today we begin with a truth that on the surface may not seem very motivational. However, accepting this truth will be the singularly most freeing and motivating thing you can do for yourself. We live in a world dominated by agendas. These 'plans of others' are broadcast to propagandize your mind into believing in a way that will pull you off your path and put you on the path of another. Worse, the stories you tell yourself, your Personal Propaganda, is doing the same thing. That's not good. That's not bad. That's the truth. It has always been, and it always will be. In choosing to live life your way and experience freedom at its highest levels, there is a rule that I have always followed - The truth is the most motivating power you can access. If you dare to see and accept the truth in all areas of your life, you will then have the power to respond and act in ways that will change your life - instantly and for the long term. Living your life on your terms isn't about fighting the good fight until you get what you want. It's about accepting the truth of who you are, ignoring the agendas of others, re-writing the stories you tell yourself, and acting in alignment with who you are on the inside. It's simple. When you change your stories, you change your life. That begins by accepting the truth.

Responding To Your Inner-Voice
The Daily Boost is available as a stand-alone podcast or included in our coaching program FIVE days a week. Get it HERE! Responding To Your Inner-Voice Inside all of you right now are dreams, desires, and visions of your future. If you pay attention, you can hear your inner voice nudging you in that direction. Something it’s been doing for years. Whether your inner voice is whispering for you to begin moving toward your dreams or stop a behavior that’s holding you back, it will never stop reminding you until you take action. That is where challenges happen. It’s common for a person who finally listens to their inner voice to react eventually. They spring into action mode and begin moving as if it were an emergency, and they are driving the rescue vehicle 70 miles per hour to their destination. The result of reacting is almost always ending in disaster and making the problem worse. There’s a reason they don’t call them ‘First Reactors.’ If you’ve ever observed a first responder in action, you have noticed that they are trained, equipped, follow a plan of action, and never react. They always respond in a thoughtful and calculated manner and are entirely focused on their mission and outcome. The next time your inner voice provokes you to move, take a minute, think long-term, and respond with actions that will move toward your outcome. That’s how you build never-ending momentum.

Formula For Finding Purpose
Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com. Over the year’s the most popular question I get from the MOVERS around here is - “How do I find my purpose and face my passion?” If I were to expand on that question, it would be - “What can I do today to find my purpose and overcome the fear of living my passion?” In other words, it’s one thing to find it; it’s another thing to get yourself to do it. Today we’ll focus on finding it. In my quest to always be passionately living, I always turn to a 5-step process for discovering and facing your passion. It has never failed me. 1) Explore the possibilities that are available to you. The more, the better. Many things will interest you, and you should be willing to allow them into your life. 2) Pay attention to what gets and keep your attention. Don’t fight the feeling. Just follow the urge to explore. 3) Deep dive into the things that are shoving themselves into your life and immersing yourself. 4) When you find yourself fascinated and nearly obsessed, even if it makes no sense at all, you are heading a new path. Don’t be surprised if it is nothing you’ve ever considered before. The formula is simple: Exploration + Fascination = Facing Your Passion While there can be several strategic steps within the steps above, the more significant challenge is to allow yourself to follow what you find. Once you find it, be sure you live it.

Are You Self-Sabotaging Your Success
Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com. Are You Self-Sabotaging Your Success When I started my first real business 20 years ago, I found myself stressed, working long hours, missing workouts, sleep, and family. I was determined to be a success - even if it killed me. I'm not sure it would have done that, but I was a least on my way to wearing myself out since I was in my office at 2 AM on a Saturday, with a big bottle of wine. Frankly, I was mad that day and was thinking bad things about myself. Feeling a little lost, as well, and a bladder full of wine, I stumbled to the restroom. That's when my reflection in the mirror stopped me in my tracks. The man looking back was not the man I was on the inside. I could tell by the look in his eyes that he wasn't mad. He was sad. Success was proving harder than he thought it would be, and he was lying to himself about why. No. I was lying to myself. In a surreal moment, I realized that I was questioning my commitment. How could I get up every day and say that I was committed and yet allow myself to self-sabotage? How could I commit to taking on a difficult challenge and complain that it was difficult? How could I ever get what I wanted if my commitment was a big lie I was telling myself. Either I was committed to my goals, or I wasn't. I looked into the eyes of the stranger in the mirror and saw a glimmer of my old self. I realized that everything I was doing was self-inflicted, and I was ready to stop blaming my challenges. It was a moment of reckoning, and I could see my commitment returning as a sparkle emerged from my eyes, and relief appeared in my shoulders. My inner Yoda also spoke to me - "Succeed or do not succeed. Both are self-inflicted. There is no try. There is only commitment." After that, I had a very good night's sleep.

How To Rid Yourself of Burnout
Keep yourself on track with the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com. From time to time, almost everybody will feel as if they can't do IT anymore - whatever IT is. Something has to change, and they have no idea how. It's called burnout. The good news is that you don't ever have to get burned out. The better news is that it's easy to keep yourself motivated, energized, and looking forward to every new day. But what happens if you feel burned out today? Let's start with something that may not be obvious to you. If you just figured out you were burning yourself out, everybody around you knew it a long time ago. We can always see burnout in somebody else before we can see it in ourselves. So, now that you've joined the burnout party, let's dig in a bit more. People get confused about burnout and tend to blame it on working too many hours, with too much stress, not enough respect, and the feeling there is no way out. When that happens, dreams die, and you feel stuck. You may indeed find yourself in a burnout crisis, but you don't have to stay there. In fact— You don't have to get more sleep… You don't need to ask for a raise… You don't need a long vacation… While all of those things are good and will improve your life, the secret to not getting burned out, getting out of burnout, and never burning out again is simple; switch your activity's focus to things that excite and drive you. How many times have you been dead tired yet found time to do something you love? How many times has an old friend called after a long day, and your mood was instantly brightened? How many times do you remember being in so in the groove that nothing else mattered? You're not burned out. You are doing stuff that you don't like, and it's time for a change. But what? But when? But how? All good questions and the answers will arrive the minute you focus your mind and actions on meaningful and exciting thoughts and ideas - and start doing something about it. Keep yourself on track with the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com.

Two Hour Project Productivity Rule
Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com. If you're spending any time trying to create a more fulfilling life, have you ever found yourself unable to work on meaningful projects? Of course, we all have. Here's what usually happens: 1) We make a decision, conscious or unconscious, to spend an entire day or week charging through your project. 2) We "chunk" our project into 15-30 segments that we work on throughout the day. The challenge happens when we never seem to be able to focus our attention for days or weeks at a time. Years pass, and nothing happens. Changing our approach to short chunks is equally frustrating because it never allows enough time to get into a flow. That leads to stopping, starting, and not wanting to start again. Years pass, and nothing happens. A better approach is to block your time into creative chucks and focus on a single project. After that, you can move on to less important items, take a break, and fire up another two-hour block. You could continue your previous focus, or switch to an entirely different project. In any case, days pass, and lots happens. Without getting too deep, the process works because our focus will naturally diminish in two hours. With practice, you may be able to attain four to six hours. After that, you’re toast. If you want to get something meaningful done, focus on it two hours a day, every day, and it will be done before you know it. Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week at MotivationToMove.com.

How To Get Motivated Again
Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week and supercharge your motivation! As a child, I wondered why I couldn't always have my way. Mom and Dad were so mean! I couldn't wait to grow up, move out, and experience being an adult. Everything would be different - or so I thought. After stepping into the adult world, it didn't take long to realize that not much had changed. It turns out it wasn't my parents. It was life turning down my requests. Life was getting in the way. What was even worse was that I was getting in my way. I've joked over the years that if I'm the Boss of me, so why don't I do what I say? Eventually, I realized having a big ass goal, being on a mission, and most importantly, motivation on demand was the solution. Motivation is a powerful, if not fleeting, tool that we all need. But we need to understand how our minds generate motivation— Your physiology dictates your feelings. The easiest way to break free of a slump is to stand up, take a step, and REPEAT. Movement wakes your body up, guides your emotions, and makes anything feel possible. Focus fuels your fire. If you're feeling unmotivated, you are also drifting in the wind with no direction. Shifting your thoughts in a positive direction and toward what excites you will break you out and get you moving. Setting big ass goals with further fuels your focus while it also serves to define your purpose. There's nothing more motivating than having a goal to pursue. When life gets in the way, remember that the words you say create the emotions you feel. Negative self-talk will drag you, and everybody else, down. Everything changes when you make the words you say to yourself, internally and externally, positive and uplifting. In the end, you're human, and your brain isn't wired to stay motivated all the time. However, when you give it a helping hand, it will always help you get what you want. Get the Daily Boost FIVE days a week and supercharge your motivation!

Does Change Happen Instantly?
Get the coaching version of the Daily Boost with no commercials and more. Go to MotivationToMove.com. You’ve likely heard that “Changes happens in an instant” - which is entirely accurate. But… Is there one ‘instant’, and when will it happen? Are there more than one ‘instants” required to get what you want? If so, when will they happen? If you’ve ever worked toward a goal, you’ll find there are usually a series of small changes that happen in sequence. Whether they are slight shifts in your mindset or actions, or actual physical changes in your life, one thing usually leads to another. Over the years, I have noticed a predictable one, two, three patterns that clients always follow in seeking change. 1) Step one is the clarity and figure things our phase. It is a time when you decide that you want to change something about your life. You may not know what or how, but you are now searching with a specific mission in mind. You are no longer looking backward. You have changed. 2) Once clarity emerges it is accompanied by excitement. This is the time to map out a path and choose strategies that move you closer to your goal. This could be called the ‘How’ stage. You being to create your roadmap. You have changed. 3) At this point, you are approaching the natural starting point. You know what you want, how to get it, and the time has come time to execute your plan with daily action. You are now committed to moving forward. You have changed. It doesn’t matter what you want to change, you will always follow those three steps. Whether it’s a goal that will take a day to accomplish or a year, you'll always get what you want if you sequentially move through the process. The more action you take, the more you get small changes leading to your eventual goal. Get the coaching version of the Daily Boost with no commercials and more. Go to MotivationToMove.com.

How To Keep Things Simple
Get the Daily Boost commercial-free and 5 days a week at MotivationToMove.com Last week in Daytona Beach, I noticed the seasons were changing. It may be too early for the leaves to change colors, but the license plates of our winter residents are beginning to take over the roads - and they sure are busy. I like to keep life simple, so I notice when, even while beginning an exciting adventure, people seem to lose all common sense, embrace complexity, and lose track of how simple life can be. My mind drifts in observational moments like these— "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." ~ Leonardo da Vinci "Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated." ~ Confucius "The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook." ~ William James And possibly the most appropriate. "Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough." ~ Charles Warner Your life will get more complicated without even trying so why not… 1) Practice the rule of "Good Enough." 2) Say No. Repeat it even if it's to yourself. 3) Remember, you're supposed to be happy. Today, why not make an effort to simplify everything that crosses your path. It will make you and everybody around you happier.

How are you going to influence the world today? What do you think about starting with yourself? Getting what you want in life begins when you know what you want and believe that you can accomplish your goal. Does that sound like you? Simon Sinek calls it "The Golden Circle." If you're like most folks, you spend a reasonable amount of time focusing on "What" you want and "How" you're going to get it. Your "Why" tends to arrive last. When you think that way, you'll find yourself wandering in the direction of what you think you want. And, nobody can help you because there is no belief and passion behind what you are doing. On the other hand, when you begin with Why, the How becomes automatic, and the What tends to define itself. When you know your Why, you become an inspiration to yourself and everybody who crosses your path. That's how you influence the world.

What Matters in Life
Get the Daily Boost five days a week at MotivationtoMove.com Have you noticed how few things in life require absolute attention? Sure, occasionally, you will be served a little more than you think you can handle, but you always manage it. Sometimes you will worry a little more about things than you should. No matter how detailed you cook up and plan your worry in your mind, you always get through it. Does somebody looks at you the wrong way or, worse, say something that hurts your feelings? You might freak out a bit but always get back on track. Today, and nearly every day of your life, virtually everything that crosses your path will have no long-term impact on your life. It simply doesn’t matter. John C. Maxwell said it best, “You cannot overestimate the unimportance of practically everything. In most cases, almost any reaction you have to the actions of others never amounts to anything. So, why not stop reacting like it’s important? Why not stop carrying the worry that often comes as part of the package. Why not just keep an eye on YOUR prize of a happy life instead of worrying about others? After all, that’s about all that matters.

Planning Your Life Like a Business
Daily Boost FIVE days a week will change your life! Get it at MotivationToMove.com. For most of the last two decades, I've made my living my passion - a dream most people have. That doesn't mean it's been easy, but it does mean that I've learned a few things about how to create what you want. Let me begin by saying that most folks have difficulty breaking free from past limiting beliefs and creativity, creating a compelling future. I believe that happens because all of us are thrust into being "common folks" who must fit into society. Abe Lincoln may have said— "God must have loved the common people, for he made so many of them." He was wrong. There is no "common man"—no standardized, common pattern. He would have been nearer the truth had he said, "God must have loved uncommon." If uncommon is your normal state, how do you create a different life from anybody else? While there are many behavioral subcategories and skillsets allow us to achieve our dreams, it all begins with deciding to script your success — just like we do in business. Now, if you're not in business, hang in there for a minute while I explain a simple strategy that can change your life. A business person will succeed or fail based on their ability to do business with a certain customer, with a certain product in a certain way. Certain meaning "free from doubt or reservation, confident, and sure. In other words, 1) They choose the perfect avatar for their perfect customer. 2) They select the perfect product and solution that would solve their customers' problems. 3) They fulfill their promise to their customer via a product, service, or plan. Just for grins and giggles, what if you did the same for your life? 1) Dig deep inside yourself and script the perfect avatar that reflects the real and future you? 2) What if you took the time to determine the exact solution that would create the life of your dreams? 3) What if you scripted a series of beliefs and actions that would lead you to your perfect life? Frankly, if you held yourself to the same return on investment standard as a business, your life would change instantly. That's what happens to a business when customers realize they must have the solution they offer. Sales explode! The same thing will happen to you. Daily Boost FIVE days a week will change your life!

S.M.A.R.T Goals Are Not Realistic
I'm a big fan of setting big-ass goals. Dreaming BIG is my natural state - which is why S.M.A.R.T. goals are not all that smart. S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound. While it may seem like a good plan, I can't wrap my head around NOT setting goals because they don't seem achievable or realistic. Excuse me? Since when did big-ass goals seem achievable and realistic? If that were true, you would already be doing them. Anytime you're moving from dreaming into doing, you will be living in the land of crazy and scary. If you hold yourself to what is achievable and realistic, you might as well keep doing what you're doing. Being specific and measurable is all it takes. Hey, if you think my real-world, results-oriented, and somewhat offbeat and occasionally crossing the line style speaks to you, you should become a premium member and get the coaching version of the program 5 days a week. Yes… I said coaching version that’s recorded separately from the program you just listened to. There are no commercials or sales. Just me and you getting stuff done.

Purpose and Happiness
Get more straight-talking success strategies on the Daily Boost FIVE DAYS a week. Go to MotivationToMove.com You might not be surprised to hear me say that everybody I know has moments when they ponder their purpose in life and wonder if they are on the right track. You might also agree with me that everybody wants more happiness in their life. There’s no doubt, the twin pursuits of searching for purpose and happiness are baked into our DNA, but there is a better way to think about it. A better mindset, if you will. Purpose is simply expressing yourself fully throughout your lifetime. You are likely doing that now in some capacity. If you are unfulfilled, you only need to find a new way to express yourself. Or, as I’ve said for years— “If you don’t know your purpose, your purpose is to find your purpose.” When you feel as if you are expressing yourself fully, you are living within your purpose. Now, about happiness. Most folks tend to define happiness as something that arrives “because” of something else. They make their happiness conditional. When you get a new job, home, relationship, you’ll be happy. But it’s easier than that. Happiness is in and of itself a mindset that you choose to hold. It’s nothing special and it lives within you. You are happy, or you are not. It’s that simple. When you choose the happiness mindset, you form a happiness habit that becomes part of your personality, and you wear throughout your life. No matter what happens, you choose to be happy. If happiness results from conditions that you choose, choose the condition of being alive. In the end, there is no need to pursue your purpose or happiness as if it’s a goal. Both are within you right now if you choose to recognize them. Why wait for your success?

Balance of Personal Power
Get the Daily Boost five days a week at MotivationToMove.com If you've ever found yourself struggling to stay on track every day, your personal power is out of balance. Before I go on, let me say that personal power is more than a slogan and, it is not automatically activated upon birth. Rising into your personal power is a personal choice. It is a decision followed by discipline to become a complete person instead of a narrowly focused human stumbling through life. It is a power that arrives when you realize that the sum is better than the parts. It’s not about your health, relationships, or how much money you make. It's not about your spiritual beliefs, values, or your integrity. It's not about how you treat your children, spouse, or friends. Personal power is about mastering every important aspect of your life into one thing call YOU. Every characteristic of your life is important. When you balance them with focused synchronicity, your power rises, and you become the person you were meant to be.

Productivity. Your Number One Success Tool
Get the Daily Boost five days a week and get what you want in life. Go to MotivationToMove.com to get signed up. If you talk to any successful person and ask how they got that way, it boils down to three things: 1) They decided what they wanted life and success to be. 2) They decided to say “No” to everything else and “Yes” to themselves. 3) They decided to embrace and practice maximum productivity toward their goal. I suppose that if I said it another way, it would be that life always leads you to a crossroads of decision. Stay on your current path, and you get what you’ve always had. The problem is we don’t know if it will last forever or come to a dead end. Success requires a directional choice. When you say “Yes” to yourself, you choose to take control of your destiny and not trust fate. Making a choice gives you power. It also energizes the true secret of success—productivity. Successful people are masters at focusing massive productivity directly on their goals and charging toward what they want. They don’t spend time discussing what they want. They spend time making it happen with every waking moment. Unsuccessful people are frozen, unable to turn their dreams into reality and wonder why they can’t get what they want. Don’t get caught up in the drama of getting what you want in life. Make a decision and get busy. The more productive you are, the faster you get what you want.

Returning To Your Dreams
Get your Daily Boost five days a week at MotivationToMove.com. Returning To Your Dreams Can you remember a time when you filled your thoughts with dreams and ambitions? That’s how most of us live our early lives - until the real world splits into two distinct periods: 1) BEFORE life gets in the way. Anything IS possible. It’s a beautiful time when you run as fast as you can toward your goals. Even if your parents disagree. 2) AFTER life gets in the way. Anything WAS possible. Life is good, but it’s not what you expected. Your parents would have said, “I told you so.” What if it was possible to remember what you wanted and why you wanted it? What if you could stand on a foundation of wisdom and experience? What if you combine what you have now with what you want? That would be a great new life, wouldn’t it? Wait. It is possible. All you have to do is remember what you wanted all these years and start running after it again. Run fast. You’ve waited long enough. Get your Daily Boost five days a week at MotivationToMove.com.

Breaking Bad Habits Now or Later
How many times have you heard it takes 21 days to create or break a habit? Probably as many times as you've tried to make a change to your life. Creating a new lifestyle is nothing more than applying a different set of actions day-to-day. In doing so, you are forming a mental link that strengthens each time you repeat the action. The guys in the white coats call this "context-dependent repetition." It's a dynamic automatic behavior that saves your brainpower in a busy world. Research has also found that while the common habit-forming time is 66 days, it's also possible to form a new habit instantly if your belief and desire to change are strong. How cool is that? That means you can set a new habit in the next few minutes. If you want bad enough, you can change right now instead of taking 66 days to do it. I say 21 days is for Blackjack, and 66 days is for ordinary people. You are not ordinary. Why not get it done now and keep moving?

Steps to fulfillment
I often run across a lesson that makes a difference in my life. This one came from the time I spent with Tony Robbins in 2006. When it comes to building Momentum, it's still relevant today: 1) Get Clear. Confusion creates paralysis. 2) Get Certain. You must believe it is possible. 3) Get Excited. Light your hair on fire, kick yourself in the butt and take on your life. 4) Get Focused. Distraction is the result of a lack of focus. Avoid it at all cost. 5) Get Committed. You are going to do it or not. Decide today. 6) The hardest part is starting. Get Momentum. Once you get moving, never lose that Momentum. 7) Get Smart. Trust your gut. You know what's right for you. If you're not getting what you want, use your brain and change direction.

Is it Time to MOVE Faster?
Is your hair on fire for success? There's a phrase that sums up what it takes to find whatever you're looking for. The faster the speed of the leader, the faster the speed of the pack. It's a simple truth; success likes speed. It's very sexy and especially attractive to others. Knowing your goals and taking massive imperfect action always speed up success. Why? People get caught up in the belief their leaders cast. When you crank up your energy and urgency, others will follow and support your mission. Whatever your dreams, it is time for you to fire up your inner supercharger and get ready for the ride of your life.
