Personality Types Crisis

Can The Coronavirus Crisis Reveal Your Personality Type?

Is the Coronavirus crisis freaking you out? Is social distancing and self isolation bringing out the best or worst in you? In this article, we’ll take a look at how a crisis can reveal your true self. The Beginning Of The C-19 Crisis Back at the start of February of 2020, the only things people complained about was Donald Trump, going to work and the price of gasoline. But within a few weeks, all that changed. The Covid-19 or coronavirus crisis became the world’s focus. Suddenly, and for no logical reason, people began hoarding toilet paper.

Operation Reinvention: Better and Beyond

Operation Reinvention: Better and Beyond

I woke up this morning with a thought running through my mind and pulsing through my veins. I couldn't stay in bed any longer.

How many closets can you organize? How many Netflix programs can you binge? How long will people wait for others to say it's okay for them to get with their lives?

Everything you have built in your life happened when you found the courage to rally fear, anger, and confusion into motivation and action.

Everything.

Since 2006 I have taught one thing; you can create any lifestyle you choose if you can shake yourself free from your cement shoes and get moving. Nothing has changed in 2020.

PLM 433 : Judging & Criticizing Others: How To Destroy Your Own Happiness

In this video, I share with you why judging and criticizing others is the easiest way to destroy your own happiness. Can you imagine a world where everyone was accepting and loving towards one another? Despite our best efforts, we have all been guilty of judging and criticizing others at some point in our lives. In the past, I indulged in these behaviours, which in turn, negatively impacted my happiness in life. Judgment and criticism is merely a projection of your own insecurity and lack of fulfillment in life. It wasn’t until I was 100% happy with whom I was, that I no longer felt the need to judge others. How much time do you spend judging and criticizing others? Make it a priority for all of your intentions in life to be comprised of love and…

Building a Solid Foundation During a Crisis

In a time of crisis, a solid foundation of basic needs is a great way to calm your mind.

In 1954, Abraham Maslow released his Hierarchy of Needs theory.  Since everything in life is being turned upside down - it might be a good time to get back to basics. Maslow called them deficiency needs (D-Needs):

1) Provide for your physiological needs. Food, clothing, shelter, money, everything that you need. 

2) Make sure you feel safe. Personally, emotionally, financially, health and well-being, and against accidents and illness.

3) Socially you need to feel a sense of loving and belonging. Social media might be finally showing it's real power.

While you…

The Top Six Ways to Stay Motivated

I receive many emails from people that basically ask the same question: How can I keep myself motivated long term? This seems to be quite a common dilemma for many people so I want to address it because it can be done! Here are my tips for staying motivated:

1. Get Motivated Every Day.
Zig Ziglar was once confronted about being a “motivational speaker.” The guy said to him, “You guys come and get people hyped up and then you leave and the motivation goes away. It doesn’t last, and then you have to get motivated again.”

Zig reminded the gentleman that baths are the same way but we think it is a good idea to take a bath every day!…

The Six Basic Messages of a Motivational Speaker

Like it or not, most people consider me a motivational speaker. That has an upside and a downside! Some people really appreciate motivational speakers while others think they are all fluff and no meat (Some are I guess).

So I have been thinking lately about what it is that a good motivational speaker should do, what they should communicate and how they should move people.

Below are the six basic messages of a good motivational speaker (Hint: If you are in a position of motivating anyone, kids, employees or the like, these will be good for you to reflect upon too!)

Here are the six basic messages:

The Value of Intuitive Insights By John Harricharan

John Harricharan - authorIt was not too long ago that all we knew of successful business persons was that they worked hard, were very bright and efficient. Hardly did anyone use the words “intuition” and “business” in the same conversation. Gut feelings and marketing seemed to be worlds apart with the divine injunction that “never the twain shall meet.” Yet, most recent studies are showing that perhaps we’ve been missing something.

Some of the most successful persons of all times have relied extensively on the intuitive nature of their being. Conrad…

8 Ways to Consistently Improve Yourself Daily

1. Pick the knowledge you need

When we want to improve at something, we often go to the internet to look for resources. The good news is there are a lot of resources available. The bad news is we don’t know which is a useful one.

It’s easy to get lost in this pool of resources. That’s why it’s important to get familiar with what exactly you need. Being as specific…
