Life Lessons Learned

Billy ArcementBy Featured Speaker Billy Arcement

When I published my first book, Searching for Success, it marked the completion of a personal milestone. For too many years, I had created mental obstacles that stopped me from realizing my dream of authoring a book. This powerful experience was life-changing. Shortly after publication, I was asked to present my thoughts on the process of completing this project to a local business group. As I began to recall events, I identified seven lessons I had learned. The more I thought about them, the more I saw how they might apply to anyone in their own personal quest for success. The reflection process is a practice everyone should undertake. To help, why not examine your personal performance in your career and in your personal undertakings against the seven points below? The use of questions is an excellent method to gauge performance and each point has challenging questions for your consideration.

(1) Face the things you fear. What events during the past months froze your progress? What fear did you avoid thus avoiding the experience of being successful? Many fears are the result of personal perceptions rather than actual circumstance. We believe we cannot do and we don’t. Search for reasons why you fear doing the things you should be doing. Squarely face them with a determination to overcome their growth stagnation.

How to Measure Your Success

Davida ShenskyBy Featured Speaker Davida Shensky

The problem is that there is a conflict between both your conscious and your conscious mind. Your conscious mind tells you that you can succeed at your unconscious mind has a list of all of the reasons why you can’t succeed. Therefore, you have to read training your thinking and your behavior so you can succeed. 10% of our thoughts are conscious and 90% of thoughts are unconscious, therefore, it is our unconscious thoughts back control how far we go in life and the ability we have you succeed at anything we choose to do.

For instance, traditional success programs tell you these are the four steps you should follow to find success in your personal life:

  1. Set your goals (know what you want)
  2. Do something (take action to reach your goals)
  3. Evaluate (am I getting closer to my goals are not?)
  4. Try again (keep changing your approach until you reach your goals)

but the reality is:

Choice is Always An Option

Billy ArcementBy Featured Speaker Billy Arcement

How do you feel about your life? Is it productive? Do you consistently reach the milestones you so vividly imagine in your mind’s eye? Do you have the commitment to continue working on your current goals or do you feel burned out and stagnated?

We Can Choose
The beauty of life is that no matter where we find ourselves at any given moment, we always have the choice to move in a different direction and re-position ourselves. By conducting a thorough examination of our past activities, readjusting our tactics and implementing the necessary changes to improve our results, we can reach the milestones of our life. It’s never too late to start over. But before we can successfully begin to move towards our destination of choice, we must build a self-awareness of our weaknesses-the lid on our success jar that stops our progress.

We all bring strength to the table of opportunity. Likewise, we all have weaknesses that, if not corrected, will diminish our ability to maximize and capture the opportunities of life. Successful people focus and use their strengths, and seek support to shore up their weaknesses. They surround themselves with people who help them overcome their weaknesses. This is a win-win partnership.

The Myth of the Overnight Success

Avish ParasharBy Featured Speaker Avish Parashar

Having a little nerd in me (ok, maybe a lot of nerd), I recently decided to use my NetFlix membership to watch the entire 9 season run of the X-Files on DVD. Hey, it could be worse – it could be Star Trek…and if you email me in defense of Trek, then you essentially make my point.

The amazing thing about watching a show like The X-Files is that you see so many guest stars who were unknown at the time but who have gone on to become famous and successful.

For example, the season one episode “Ice,” featured Felicity Huffman. This was in 1993. I saw that episode when it first came on, but at the time no one, myself included, knew who she was.
