Kick Out The Ladder

As a concept it might sound a bit of an extreme way to encourage success, but this lesson from Honda can be likened to another enouraging saying “sink or swim”.

Successful & Healthy

health-fitnessIf you’re aspiring to live a successful life, or perhaps you’re already enjoying everything that comes with having achieved success, the one thing that you really can’t over look is your health. For a lot of people, success can often mean money, a nice house and car, a great job, or any other material reward for our hard work and application… and those things are nice, but you won’t enjoy any of them if you don’t feel as healthy as possible. True success is about achieving the best in all areas of your life – money, career, relationships, and very definitely health.

So if you want to achieve true success in life, paying attention to and improving your health and fitness are more than likely going to be key. And if exercising and eating healthily don’t come naturally to you, just as you would with other goals you want to achieve, it can be a good idea to get some professional help.

Many trainers have devised their own training programs, exclusively designed to heal their clients achieve their health and fitness goals, and these programs often work in tandem with the goals you have set out for the other areas off your personal and professional development.

The World’s Greatest Failures

Once you embrace failure as part of the past to success, rather than the end of a dream, it’s amazing what you can achieve. Just look what happened to these famous failures.

Failure: The Secret to Success

Many of us grow up with the idea that failure is a bad word, and to fail is bad. But it couldn’t be furthest from the truth. As long as you keep trying, you will never fail. This video from Honda explains it perfectly.



Remember, there is no failure, only feedback.

The Path to Success

self-improvementWe are all presented with literally hundreds of images every day of glamorous celebrities living lifestyles that turn us practically green with envy. However there are those that look upon such people and turn green with envy and then there are those that look at them and become inspired as to how they’ll be there, on that beach, enjoying that luxury holiday, in 5 or 10 years time. The former group often looks at the latter group today as dreamers, but after those 5 or 10 years have passed the latter group will be looking at the former as those that didn’t dream enough. With the right attitude, guidance and self coaching tools (check PropelDay out for a good example), the life you want can be yours.

So what’s the key to achieving everything you want in life and much more besides? Are you expecting us to provide you with some secret recipe to becoming that celebrity living that lifestyle? Well you may be surprised to know that there are no secrets and most certainly there is no one that can’t achieve the lifestyle of even the most successful of people – anyone can be successful!

Luxury Living – Achievable By All

A singular defining difference between self made millionaires and those who remain are relatively unsuccessful through life is a positive mindset, plain and simple. With that in place you are capable of anything and coupled with a focused personal development plan, the right coaching, productivity tools and motivational aids, there is nothing that isn’t possible.

Personal Development – How You Can Achieve Your Dreams

You should try to remember that success isn’t just defined by money. Focusing purely on monetary gains will mean that you never feel truly fulfilled (after all, there is no one who will ever have all the money in the world). Instead you should be focusing upon what money allows you to afford and what your goals are in terms of experiences; after all, having money isn’t about admiring stacks of differently coloured and patterned paper, it’s about the benefits of choices and being able to do what makes you happy.

Tools To Success

Choosing the right tools in helping you along your journey is as important as having a positive mindset. For all the will (and positivity) in the world, your efforts need to be guided and focused. Two tools that can help you develop and get where you need to go are professionally designed personal development programs and teachers.

Choosing A Professionally Design Personal Development Program
Professionally designed personal development programs are wide and varied; from those that focus upon monetary gains to those that focus upon well being, there will always be one that lends itself to what you are looking to achieve in life. To find the one that is most suitable to you, you should research what’s out there and learn from other’s experiences with the program in question.

Using A Personal Development Teacher
By far and away the most effective way of designing and managing a personal development plan is to consult a professional and have continual one one one interaction. They are professionally trained in tailoring personal development plans and serve as much needed motivators on the days where you feel that your plans are insurmountable and unachievable.

Whatever your background or your past, life improvement is an opportunity that is available to just about anyone. So if you’ve always dreamed of success, happiness and luxury, why not take steps to improve your life today.

Technological Inspiration

technological-inspirationWe all receive inspiration from a variety of different sources. For some it maybe an individual – a mentor or a teacher. For others it may be a book or some other piece of writing. Whatever your source of inspiration, in these modern days you might think that it would be hard for the technological rush the world seems to be swept along on, to do anything other than create noise and confusing, as opposed to clarity and focus – but you might be surprised.

Technology is advancing in all areas of our lives, and this is even true for those who seek inspiration and guidance in the pursuit of their personal and professional goals, making resources and information more accessible, to more people. Here, we’re going to look at a number of mobile apps that could provide you with the inspiration you’ve been looking for.

GPS for the Soul – Created by the Huffington Post, this app provides the tools and encouragement you need to ‘reconnect with your centred place of balance’. Designed more to help you bring harmony into your life, particularly in these chaotic modern times, than to provide inspiration, the collection of tools and resources will help with your focus and understanding of what you want to achieve in your life.

Dream a Bit – Developed by messapps New York, this is an app that is designed to provide the inspiration you need to achieve your goals. Dream a Bit provides an organised space for you to create and keep your goals, as well as a simple and intuitive design that makes tracking your progress simple and enjoyable.

Rewire – This is an app from Randome Studios and is also designed to provide inspiration for those who need help with habit and goal tracking. Based on Seinfeld’s productivity secret, this app has a range of features to help you develop the kind of habits that will ‘rewire’ yourself to achieve the goals you’ve identified as key to your success.

Bloom – Bloom is a beautiful and simple app from Mindbloom, that ‘turns your phone into a source of inspiration’. The app allows you to create ‘blooms’, which are combinations of you favourite images, quotes and music, that you can set to appear throughout your day. You can even send your blooms to friends and family, to help inspire them too.

Build Confidence – Unsurprisingly, this collaboration between Andrew Johnson and The Mindfulness Company is designed to exactly what you’d expect, help you increase your confidence so you can achieve your full potential in life. This app will inspire you to get rid of the things that are holding you back, change the way you view yourself and the world, and set you on the path to success.

These are just some of the apps out there that are designed to help inspire you towards the success you’re looking for, and there are obviously others. But what we think is important to remember is that technology, just was with everything else in our lives, can be used to help us move forward, if we use it in the right way.
