perceptionWe have all heard "Perception is our reality."  I am a huge fan of that statement.  In fact Albert Einstein said, "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one!"  So what does that mean really?  Perception is your idea, your awareness or understanding of your environment - YOU ARE THE WRITER OF YOUR STORY!  I'll be talking tonight about what we see, hear and perceive to be the truth, and how to change that truth by simply changing your focus.  Most importantly how do you perceive yourself, how do you talk to yourself and what is the story you are telling yourself right now?

Check out tonight's radio blog! This week I'll talk about clearly what the title says.  You must work to win.  To do that, first I'll spend a little time defining WORK, in my terms and how that ties in to winning.  I'll talk about things like really enjoying what you are working on and re-defining your focus, re-aligning your attitude and re-setting your intention so that most any "work" can be more enjoyable.  Tune in, tell a friend, share it on your Facebook - this week, it's time to get to work!  Just click to play in the player below!

I'm sure you have the term - Negativity breeds negativity; I also want to talk about that positivity creates positivity and more so, for this show EXCITEMENT CREATES EXCITEMENT!  Emotions are communicable through our words and actions.  As humans we absorb some of the emotions of those around us, some emotions of the people we see and watch.  So, whatever emotion you are experiencing remember that it is written all over your face, your voice tone and your body.  So project onto others what you would have projected onto you! Be positive, be pumped, be EXCITED!  Spread the excitement!

Are you running in place and not getting anywhere?  So often we push really hard, run really fast and still get off in the same spot that we got into the run at.  It's like running on a treadmill at the gym.  People exert a lot of effort push really hard, run sometimes for miles at a time - and whether it's ten minutes or an hour, you always step back off into the same world that you got on at!  So, what was accomplished, what did you do, what was gained?  Tune in tonight to get pumped, have a fun mental workout and run with me!

What excites you? What turns you on? What are you truly passionate about? The existence of passion in our lives creates power. This is the power that gets stuff done, it is what keeps us going, keeps us pushing through our perceived barriers. Passion is how we look at others that are accomplishing what we may have not thought possible, yet they get the job done. Let's light a fire right now, get passionate and resonate with power!

Tonight will be all about attitude - BAM!  Whether positive or negative - attitudes help in determining our outcomes and also the experience and the journey along the way to accomplish most any goal.  Even from the very onset, when you are approaching either a small task or a major project you always have a final goal in mind; and how you set yourself up at the beginning will either help or hurt you in achieving what you want to.  So tonight I'll help provide you your "A.C.E. in the hole."  Your Attitude Creates Experience!

This week I am excited and feel privileged to interview one of the authors, Guy Harris. His upcoming book is titled "From Bud To Boss - Secrets to a Successful Transition to Remarkable Leadership." First of all, this book is awesome, it is more than just a good one-time read. This book is a powerful outline or workbook for a positive transition from being a peer to a leadership role. In my opinion, it is a must read for ANYONE in a leadership role, especially if you are being promoted from within. It's all about what to do after the high-fives and handshakes and the customary congratulations of your promotion. I am pumped to speak with Guy for this SPECIAL EDITION of RE-ignition!

It's only an acronym for Bypass, Restate, Expand, Ask, Keep. Whether it is to further your sales, improve on a relationship or tweak your communication a little, this episode is a MUST listen!

This week I'll talk about how fear can hold us back and some simple exercises thing you can do to eliminate the fear in your life. This talk comes to me from inspiration after watching my 5 year old niece scale a 60 foot wall while rock climbing. She didn't try once and stop, she continued UNTIL... she made it to the top, and then she did it three more times! Most of us won't sing in our car out of fear that someone will see us and pass judgment. Once the fear of heights was conquered, it was easy to repeat the same process to achieve amazing results. What will you do to eliminate your fears and amaze others this week?
