Get Rich Slowly
Michael Dylan Get Rich Slowly Article
I have to confess, I have read a whole bunch of get rich quick books, listened to get rich quick audio books and have even bought a few crappy get rich quick ebooks. They all taught me that you can get rich quickly by selling get rich schemes to lazy people like myself looking for shortcuts. Which is not to say that one can't become rich quickly, but there's a lot of luck involved and luck isn't something I'm prepared to depend on for my financial freedom.

In this article we are going to be looking at the “Arenas” that every person, organization, or business can operate out of. They are Values, Responsibility, Possibility, Negotiation, Vision, Dedication, and Accomplishment.

Money is good! In this day and age that we live in, money is not only good, but absolutely essential. Besides air, it may be the next most important thing in life.

Changing Habits
Michael Dylan Changing Habits Article
Human beings are creatures of habit. We get into a routine that we are comfortable with and we stick to it unless something big comes along and shocks us out of it. Our daily habits often force us to put up with all kind of degrading and destructive events, all in the name of keeping things comfortable or familiar. We would rather put up with the habits we know because we can put up with them, rather than create new habits that we have never experienced before.

Boost Your Leadership Skills
Brent Filson Boost Your Leadership Skills Article
I'm often asked to come in to organizations and give a motivational speech to their employees. I reply that I'm not a motivational speaker. Never have been. Never will be. Don't want to be. I do something else. I teach their people how to become motivational leaders. That's a far more productive endeavor.

New Year's Resolution
Michael Dylan New Years Resolution Article
Another year is about to tick over, with a new one waiting just over the horizon. Many people will be thinking about how to make next year better than this year and will probably even make a new year's resolution or two. They will be trying to change old habits, create new ones, work harder, find the "one", spend more time with family, earn more money, quit smoking, lose weight, and so many more aims that will probably be forgotten about before the first month is over.

Making Changes
Michael Dylan Motivational Article
If you have ever tried to quit smoking or to change some major behavior that you have habitually done for many years, you will know how powerful our habits are. Human habits are a tough nut to crack, but like any tasty nut in a hard shell, it is very rewarding to break through the barrier holding you back. A powerful way to reach inside and create new habits or behaviors is to learn why we do what we do, and how much better it would be if we didn't do it!.

Life is Worthwhile if You...
Jim Rohn Motivational Life Article
First, life is worthwhile if you LEARN. What you don't know WILL hurt you. You have to have learning to exist, let alone succeed. Life is worthwhile if you learn from your own experiences, negative and positive. We learn to do it right by first sometimes doing it wrong. We call that a positive negative. We also learn from other people's experiences, both positive and negative.

Ambitiously Pursuing Your Own Self-Direction
Jim Rohn Ambitious Self Direction Article
What is the origin of true ambition? There exists really only one place to find true ambition and that is within you – in every thought, in every movement, in every motivation. Your ambition is an expression of who you truly are, your own self-expression.

Retain Your Best People
Dorene Lehavi - Leadership Article

Many managers and team leaders ask me how to deal with employees in a way that will maximize their potential, create loyalty and respect, and cut down on high turnover and destructive behavior in the workplace. The single most common reason people stay or leave an organization is based on the relationship they have with their direct supervisor. Therefore the key is to show a keen personal interest in each person.

When the Door of Opportunity Opens
Chris Widener Motivational + Success Article

Anybody can achieve anything. Do you believe that? I do. But there is a caveat that must be made. Those who succeed are those who walk through the door of opportunity when it swings open. That we know. But what is the secret to getting through the door of opportunity?

In Leadership, Dreams Are The Stuff That Great Results Are Made Of
Brent Filson Leadership Results Article
Leadership is motivational or it’s stumbling in the dark. The best leaders don’t order people to do a job, the best leaders motivate people to want to do the job. The trouble is the vast majority of leaders don’t delve into the deep aspects of human motivation and so are unable to motivate people effectively.

A Balanced Life

People as busy and stressed as lawyers often do not take the time to check in with themselves periodically about where they are in their lives.

Three Factors of Leadership Motivation
Brent Filson Leadership + Motivational Article
Leaders do nothing more important than get results. But you can't get results by yourself. You need others to help you do it. And the best way to have other people get results is not by ordering them but motivating them. Yet many leaders fail to motivate people to achieve results because those leaders misconstrue the concept and applications of motivation.

Motivational Marketing
Brent Filson Marketing + Motivational Article
Just as we're supposed to use only a fraction of our brains' capabilities, so I'm convinced, working with businesses in major industries, that people get just a fraction of the results they're capable of. Few businesses come close to achieving their potential results. That's because businesses are not marketing from the heart. When I speak of the heart, I speak of that intuitive, emotional, feeling aspect of all of us.

Chris Widener Motivational Article

In all of my interactions with people, I've never found anyone, regardless of their level of success, who doesn't sometimes find themselves simply not wanting to do the things that they need and want to do.

Living Without Limits
Brian Tracy Motivation + Goals Article
The starting point of great success and achievement has always been the same. It is for you to dream big dreams.
