Are you expecting?

The other day, I wrote a post titled “Prepare for Success”. In it I asked, “So, have you gotten the revelation, yet, to prepare for success?” I then went on to talk about revelation – the “ah-ha” moment you need to have concerning preparing for success. Today, I want to talk about a different aspect of that question, that of expectancy. Are you expecting to succeed? There is a principle in our lives that is so strong, that some people call it a law. The law of expectancy. It is a phenomenon that has been known and studied for years. … Continue reading

What’s Your Average?

I was reading a post about “Feeling Like A Fraud?” by Lis Tanz and was struck by two of her remedies because they fit in with some things I had been thinking.  Her point #5 was Surround yourself with people you admire in your profession and #6 was Surround yourself with peers in your profession.

Plan on Planning

As I have mentioned, I was working on one of my books (Starting Your Creative Business) and I wrote about three prerequisites you need to have before you even start. As I did, I realized that you really need those three things (Passion, Persistence, and a Plan) throughout your whole business life (and can make the case for throughout your whole life – business or otherwise.) So, I decided to share about them briefly here even though you may have heard these before, because, if you are like me, an occasional reminder is in order.  Today, I want to cover … Continue reading
