BS yourself

I’m sure you heard this before. “BS yourself to functionality. Lie, cheat and steal yourself to positivity!” — Lou Landau When you find yourself in a difficult situation, and it does not affect you in a negative way, that in itself is already a positive reinforcement.  Everyday look for ways to grow in a positive […]

Holding people accountable

The other day I made a run for it. It was really pouring out there. I had to get from my home to my car, and got sopping wet while doing it.  And, like I always tell you my friend. I voiced my my oft-repeated phrase out loud.  “I do not let the weather affect […]

The motor of learning

Are you looking for new techniques to accomplish your goals? You don’t always have to look for the new. Repeat the ABCs you already know. Repeat the basics. And do it every day. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.  Just think. What do I need to do to get to my goal and to move towards a better […]

MMM Preparation with pushups

I’m preparing for our weekly motivation meeting.  I was debating if I should grab another coffee or catnap before starting the meeting.  But. No!  I needed to get my heart pumping and adrenaline rushing.  I got down on all fours and did my daily 50 push-ups. (As I once mentioned, I heard this from Vishen […]

The Final Picture

Are you happy staying the way you are now, for the rest of your life?! Just like you wouldn’t let others jerk you around and play on your emotions, so too you should not let your emotions play on you. Don’t let your emotions have a wild ride over you, and make you feel bad […]

Learning!

Are you the type that listens to podcasts or are you rather the reading-a-book type? The truth is, it’s not really about the inspiring podcast, the new technique or the amazing seminar training.  It’s all about making changes.  Change happens through awareness.  We listen.We learn.We review. By internalizing what we learn, we learn to change.  […]

We buy too many books

A few weeks ago, my flight home from Puerto Rico was canceled.  It made me think.  Can we change the weather (snow in NY was causing the delay)? No. Can we change our attitude (enjoy another day in a beautiful resort)?Yes! We do not let the weather — or anything — affect us negatively!  We need […]

Use the brain!

Did you know that if you don’t use your brain it will rust?! By nature, things rust. Break. Fall and fail.  If a machine is not oiled, it will stop working at one point.If the brain/body/mind is not oiled, it will slow down. You constantly need to keep moving your body and sharpening your brain. […]

Wisdom

I am young and stupid. I still consider myself young, and stupid.  Am I smarter now than I was ten years ago? Definitely yes!Will I be smarter in five years from now? God willing, yes! So, comparing to in 5 or 10 or 20 years, I am still young and stupid.  That realization is liberating. […]

No news is good news

Have you listened to the news lately? I was just talking with a friend. He was all worked up and a nervous wreck. “The sky is falling, the world is coming to an end. The stocks are falling and Covid isn’t yet coming to an end!”  This is a result of listening to the news.  […]
