Rules to live by that helped me along the way

  1. Take Responsibility - for everything in your life (you are exactly where you deserve to be).
  2. Commit to excellence - don't take shortcuts to achieve results.
  3. Expect to succeed - know it and work toward it every hour and don't doubt yourself.
  4. Set specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound (SMART) goals.
  5. Have a specific plan of activities - whatever you do every day - plan it and work it.
  6. Make a serious internal commitment to yourself to work your plan.
  7. Avoid negative thoughts and people who just complain without offering solutions.
  8. Be flexible in your thinking.
  9. Maximize creativity in everything you do.
  10. Believe in yourself, your family, your team, your company, your country, etc.

Inspiring others to buy with why

I originally posted this TED talk from Simon Sinek last year because it struck me as he was absolutely right on the mark, but it is worth reposting and sharing it again on this blog site because it is only too appropriate as I see this concept of answering why we believe in things as the root cause of why people buy things or ideas and accept them.  It is worth sharing again ;).
