So many reasons to celebrate others' success - especially those that you care about. The health benefits alone to ourselves are huge!! The opposite is true too - if we are bitter and jealous about others' success.. guess what - the jealousy and bitterness hurts us way more than it does that person.
There are so many benefits that I found in this article: http://www.success.com/article/4-reasons-you-should-celebrate-others-success So many great points and examples on maybe it's a good idea to start celebrating others' success instead of being bitter and jealous. Just think of the world and how much better it can be (especially now a days) where there is less bitterness & jealousy. Got some thoughts about this topic? or others?

Wow - thanks to Jeremy Todd and his love of lists... he's got me at looking to do more with lists too. Found a great one here: "9 Traits of Trustworthy People" - Find the article here: http://www.success.com/blog/9-traits-of-trustworthy-people What a great list to just look at 1 or 2 of them to start improving yourself on. Like I mentioned here - the world needs more people who are trustworthy as I see Trust as one of the foundational blocks of relationships! If you haven't left me some comments or gotten your thoughts / questions out there on my podcasts - this is a great one to get started with doing that. I would love to get some things going in a way that can help more people figure out those success puzzle pieces in their lives. We all have our own ideas of success - let's help each other figure some things out about life. :-) Get on over to my Facebook page: Coach To Expect Success and let's get working on your puzzle!! :-)
Love lists of things like this. Thanks to Jeremy Todd (The Positive Side podcast) who brought up this topic a little bit ago - I wanted to give some of my thoughts on this great list. So many times in life I think we just need a reminder of items like this that we can take with us and use in our lives. Check out my FB page at Coach To Expect Success as I have this picture on there. Let's have some discussions on this and other things. Let me know if you need some help with these. I would enjoy learning from your thoughts and ideas too.
Fired Up on a Friday - running a couple of quick errands - stopped for a great breakfast special at Leo's Coney Island. Recording some thoughts in my car before I leave to stop by a couple of more places. Reviewing my notes from Sam Crowley's live event back in June in Cincinnati - wow.... so powerful to re-read or re-watch things as it always is the case I get new insights and new ideas from old materials.... it's all due to the fact that I'm not the same person as I read or watch something again. Tons of nuggets came to me today - especially the fact that I need to continue to increase believe and confidence in myself since the things I do affect others. The same goes for you too. Look to increase your confidence and belief in yourself in going for your dreams and goals. What you do affects others for sure - every day!! Let's talk - let's have some discussions on the importance of Master Mind groups... find your way over to my Facebook page: Coach To Expect Success - Look for many new and exciting features on that page that will hopefully inspire and engage you to become the best you can be. I'm fired up... I hope you are too.. if you are not, how can I help you get there or at least get started. :-)
Relationships - Part 2. Continuing on an important part of what life is all about - Relationships. They take work because you know what?? People are messy... it's not always easy to keep relationships going and it does take work on our part to keep them going throughout out lives. Now that doesn't mean that every relationship MUST keep going all throughout life - that would be possible and it could not be good either. I do want to emphasize this point about how important they are and to remember that we can accomplish more throughout our lives when we work with others compared to just trying to do it all ourselves. When it comes to life - Relationships, Tasks, and Character... the 3 big pillars of life are key. I'll talk more on the other two soon. But for now - look to see in your life where a little work needs to be done on the relationships in your life. Always look to help them out where you can, invest in others, take the focus off yourself and realize for the special ones out there on important those people are in your life. Don't take them for granted! Hey, let’s get some conversation going on this and other topics you want to talk about. Find me on Facebook: My page is Coach To Expect Success.

Relationships - with today's technology there is really no reason to not keep up with them and to keep in touch with people that you care about. It's become apparent to me that I need to do a better job at this in my life Just found yesterday about a friend of mine that I grew up with just recently passed away earlier this year from cancer. Erin was a neighbor - 2 houses away - and a friend and she was my senior prom date too. I sure did not do a great job at all keeping in touch with her over the years. She is one that I needed to thank, simply for being a part of my life and now it's too late. I'm sitting in a rest area on my way to some technology training for school - listening to John O'Leary's podcasts - yes... the author of "On Fire"... you NEED to get that book. Relationships are a big part of his book and his podcasts.... I had to stop and not only use the bathroom... but I needed to get this podcast recorded as it was heavy on my mind and heart. Please - drop me some comments on my Facebook page - Coach To Expect Success... there are so many things that we can help each other with and others. Thanks for listening and spreading the word about my podcasts.. much love and appreciation for you tuning in.
What a great day - got to go golfing with a friend of mine, his dad and a friend of my friend too. Didn't play to well... but it was a great day doing something I enjoy doing with great people. Then my wife and I had a great date night gong to a fabulous 80's concert.. awesome energy from all the bands and a fantastic time with my beautiful bride.
Again... great day. Take the time to do those things you love doing and doing them with the people you care for too. That's what life is all about. This episode went a little overtime... but that is ok as I guess I had a bit more to say! :-)
This book has me "On Fire" - There is a chapter on Stagnation vs. Growth and let me tell you, I think we all understand that we need to grow and that we can be staying put in life. But John O'Leary lays it out in very easy to understand ideas on the importance as to why it's MUST for us to do! There is another point to remember and that is what is it about success vs. significance? There is a big difference for sure. If you chase just success... it won't last too long. Whereas if you look to go after significance - success will surely be part of that journey and it will be lasting too! Great tips today from a great read that you got to get your hands on.
Awesome discussion points coming too on my Facebook page: Coach To Expect Success.... as at the end of August, look for some live discussions going on there to talk about the book "On Fire". So, there is still time to get your copy and read it so you can be in on the fantastic discussions that will come out from everyone. Keep in touch... looking forward to any questions or discussions too.
August 1st already - wow.. time continues to fly by. Got to thinking about this the other day - how important music is to just about all of us. The emotion, the memories, the connection to our past, present & future. It inspries, it helps to motivate, music does so many things in our lives. I did a blog post about this over the last couple of years along with maybe an old podcast from that same time - I figured it was time for another reminder on how I think, music is so important to life.
Would love to hear some thoughts and feedback as to what music means to you. What your favorite songs are - your favorite bands - great memories going to concerts, etc. Find those favorie tunes of yours - listen to them again - tap into the emotion and energy that those songs bring to you!! It's all good, especially in the summer time.
