Acting Like a Two-Year Old By: David Hanscom

December 30, 2012 by DamonDenton
146-078At MBLV16 I presented part one of my “Success” series called “Compounding Your Success.” It focused on the importance of spending more time on yourself that you do on your business. This year, part 2 of the series will be “The Enemies of Our Success.” This presentation will dive into some of the largest hang ups we all face that are holding us back from achieving true greatness, many of which we don’t even realize. It will also offer clues to help you begin to identify the enemies when they appear and action steps on how to attack them and turn your thou... [read more]

Make It Happen, Be A Leader!

September 10, 2012 by DamonDenton
In your business, do you get frustrated because things don't seem to be happening the way they're supposed to be? You see people milling around but nothing gets accomplished. Most people are content just to stand around listening for orders. And it isn't unusual to adopt a follow-the-leader mentality. But maybe, somewhere inside of you, you feel the desire to make things happen. Some people believe that great leaders are made, not born. Yes, it may be true that some people are born with natural talents. However, without practice, without drive, without enthusiasm, and without experience, there can be no true development in leadership. You must also remember that good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their natural skills. This takes a commitment to constantly improve in whate... [read more]

Achieve Your Goals For Success Step By Step

July 31, 2012 by DamonDenton
You have a dream! Now, how do you make it happen? First, imagine that it is real. See every detail so clearly that you can reach out and touch it. You can feel the emotions of being there. For example if you want a certain car, then what kind is it? What color is it? Imagine you are sitting in it like you will when it is brand new. How does it feel How does it smell? Go for a drive in your car. If it's a convertible, drive with the top down! Experience the wind blowing in your face and through your hair. Hear the sounds around you. If you can take a real test drive in one, do that! Get a picture and post it where you will see it each day. Do this visualization several times a day until it becomes part of you. This action is important because your subconscious will help enable you to reach your dream and to... [read more]

8 Greatest Fears to Achieving Transformation Success

June 17, 2012 by DamonDenton
Have you ever had difficulty keeping a simple commitment to yourself? Sure. Nearly everyone I know has, sometime or another, found him or herself "trapped" wanting to do something yet not acting on their intentions.   So why don't we do some of the things we want to or know we should, like improving our health and building a better body?   Let's say you keep putting off that new fitness program. You can even imagine what it might mean to you: having a firm, strong, healthy body; feeling an abundance of energy; newfound confidence and sex appeal... Still, you don't do it. So why do you keep putting it off? What's preventing you from taking those first steps?   Consider this...   My observation is that our minds tend to see the obstacles first; those barriers that lie between wh... [read more]

Setting Goals and Achieving Them Part 2

May 30, 2012 by DamonDenton
Now that you have your road map you need to check off a few things as you begin your journey toward your goal.   First, you will have to stop along the way to “refuel”. Just as if you were physically traveling in a vehicle you would occasionally have to stop and refuel your vehicle. So you need to know what your “fuel” is and how to get it along the way. You will find yourself facing obstacles and will need to know how to quickly refuel and get back on track.   Secondly, you need to make sure you are going in the right direction. There is a principle of the North Star that simply states…If you are moving, you are moving towards your goal or you are moving away from your goal. There is no in between. You are either stepping closer or further away. It is important that you check in from ... [read more]

Setting Goals and Achieving Them! Part 1

May 20, 2012 by DamonDenton
Let’s start with the foundation of why setting goals is so important in life…   If you think of it from the standpoint of getting into your car and but having nowhere to go. If you didn’t have a job to go to, school to attend or someplace to go, you would just sit there in neutral. There is no forward progress, there is no backward progress, and you would just sit still. The key is to not over complicate it though; your goals are really like a road map, they give you direction or a destination. This allows us to chart out a path to get to that destination. This “road map”, much like in traveling, gives us direction in life and keeps us focused. Without it we run the risk of being totally lost.   I recall hearing about a trainer who did an exercise with two sheet of paper. The tr... [read more]

Planning for the future at the end of the year

December 12, 2011 by DamonDenton
It is hard to believe how fast this year has flown by! If you are like me this is about the time of the year when you pull out that proverbial New Year's Resolution, maybe even dust it off, and evaluate how well you did.  Having difficulty finding it may be the first indication how how well you did.  Year in and year out we promise ourselves that we are going to do better next year.  Starting off with a full head of steam and then only to be kicked in the face by that thing they call LIFE!  I'd would like to offer 8 suggestions that have helped me and will hopefully help you make your resolution for next next more of a reality than ever... 1. Write It Down It is proven that when something is written down and re-read often it becomes cemented into your way of thinking... [read more]

Habits and Programs Part 1

December 12, 2011 by DamonDenton
How many things in your life are habits? Habits are like programs in your computer, they are installed and work without thinking.  They, in theory, do the same thing every time.  Statistically, 86 - 90$% of what you do in a day is habitual and not a conscious decision.  It only takes 21 - 28 consistant day sto make anything a habit or change one. While preparing a ham for dinner one evening a woman cut off both ends of the ham before putting it into the oven.  Her curious daughter watching this awkward action said, "Mommy, the oven is huge, why do you always cut off the ends of the ham?"  Her mother replied, "Because that is what your grandmother, your great-grandmother and her mother did."  When looking into this future the story goes on to explain that the great-great grandmother who started t...

Planning and Prioritizing

December 12, 2011 by DamonDenton
During the last few weeks of the year many of us find ourselves looking ahead to next year and what we can do better to get us that much closer to our goals and dreams.  Here are some helpful tips to apply to your daily and weekly planning and prioritizing. The first and most important factor is that you MUST value your time.  When you consider that over 80% of the time we do things that we don't even consciously think about it is vital to properly manage the time that you do think about.  Evaluate if your day is in control of you or are you in control if it?  Also realize that responding to the day creates unhealthy and unproductive habits.  Your effectiveness is dramatically decreased when you don't plan ahead and make sure your day and your time responds to you.  Take a few mo...
