Breaking the Cycle of Self-Sabotage

Are you playing Russian roulette with your own success? Sometimes you are your own worst enemy, and failing to achieve success through self-sabotage. Sometimes we build walls for security to protect us from others and their words or actions. But, far too often these same walls become our prison, and the enemy we fear is not those on the outside, but is in fact the enemy within - ourselves! Self-doubt, self-hatred, feelings of inadequacy, negative self-talk, low esteem, lack of motivation, poor work ethic or laziness, and fear of the unknown are often the symptoms of self-sabotage. The skills, knowledge, tools, and abilities may all be in place, but we get in our own way, and halt the progr

Fear of Success aFaileth Much

The fear of success may be the culprit in your failures. That's a stark reality when self-sabotage scares you away from achieving the life God designed for you. What exactly is the Fear of Success? Much like its twin brother, the fear of failure, fear of success shares many of the same symptoms and often disguises itself in false humility. The fear of success is the fear of achieving goals or becoming successful because of a number of factors. See if this sounds like you... You don't tell others about your accomplishments because you feel it would be viewed as bragging or appear to be self-centered, egotistic, or arrogant? You feel guilty about any success or recognition you have achieved

Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win!

In my article, 10,000 Reasons to Fail, I explained that failure is merely an event and is temporary. Everyone fails in life. We were set up for failure from the beginning when Adam and Eve failed to obey God's command. While some may see that as defeating, it is actually quite liberating to know that we are all in the same boat! But, God made a way through His son, Jesus Chirst, to no longer be a failure. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13 This doesn't mean we will not fail. It simply means that when we do, He picks us up and extends grace and mercy - giving us a second, third, fourth...one millionth chance to get up and get going, again. Being a fa

Failing Forward: 10,000 Reasons to Fail

Are you tired of failing at relationships, business, and life in general? Do you feel as though no matter what you do every road leads to a dead-end? Or are you simply feeling defeated and ready to quit? I have a confession to make. For the majority of my life I battled the fear of failure and was intimidated by other people's success. From childhood I was told by people I trusted and loved that I would never amount to much, and I should "just quit" trying to be something I "ain't." I had many flaws from being too short to too fat. And God knows I'll never make the cover of GQ, as one person once told me I had a face for radio, not television. But, I was determined. Although their wor

How to Create Killer Customer Service and Explode Your Profits

Did you know the #1 killer of any business is... POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE! Killer customer service kills customer killers! Say that five times fast. In other words, when you create a well-trained, customer service oriented offensive team, you will destroy the very fungus that kills your business. Beyond a quality product or service, customer service is the #1 killer of great companies. You will see it from the small mom-and-pop shop to the largest multi-billion-dollar corporations around the world! Overhead, high manufacturing costs, taxes, and demand all impact the bottom line and the profit margin. But, in reality, satisfied customers will offset all the costs of doing business when you trea

Is College the RIGHT Choice for Education?

May is just around the corner, and many high school students will be off to college, pursuing their dreams, and discovering new passions as they graduate to adulthood and independence. I remember turning 18, and anxiously awaiting the opportunity to find my own road, build my own path, and create my own legacy. The taste of freedom was in my veins, and I was ready to leave behind childhood and pursue more adult activities and responsibilities. Don't get me wrong, the fear of going out on my own was ever-present. Leaving home and becoming an adult was both overwhelming at times and frankly paralyzing. But, like any young adult preparing to embark on this new journey, you face it with resil
