Steve’s Sunday Selections – April 25th, 2010

by Steve Scott | Join Him On Facebook

Here’s your weekly edition of Steve’s Sunday Selections. We have lots to cover, so let’s get going…

If you’ve read a lot of my posts about personal development, then you know I’m big into continuous improvement. That’s why I thoroughly enjoyed Rob’s brief post about how blogging is endless improvement. I agree that it’s important to constantly look for ways to maximize what you’re giving to your audience.

As I prepare for my 4 to 6 month long trip to Europe, I’ve been thinking a lot about the people I miss. So Gurl’s post gave me few ideas for expressing my gratitude and love for those who mean a lot in my life.

I really enjoyed James’s post about the power of dreaming big. When setting goals, I agree with him that’s important to never limit yourself and go after huge dreams.

During the last few weeks, I released my first lead magnet. So once again, I’ve started to seriously look into tactics for list building. That’s why I highly recommend Bob’s post about how to maximize your income by list building. In this article, he gives a great breakdown of how to get started with your first list.

I found Steve’s post to be extremely thought provoking. Here he talks about how the past does have an impact on your future. This one definitely flies in the face of those who say your past isn’t an indicator of what you can accomplish down the road. I like his idea that the habits and choices you make right now will ultimately decide what you’ll get in the future.

Here’s something I recommend everyone do… On Ben’s site he did an interview with himself. I feel this is an important exercise which can help you really find out how you are as a person.

Chris’s post about NOT having a backup plan is an inspirational read. I agree with his philosophy of not accepting a second choice when it comes to what you want to do. In this article, he describes how many people succeed at the moment when they realize that they have no other choice in life.

When I get back from Europe, my primary focus will be to improve my public speaking skills. So Tim’s article about how to prepare for a public speech gave me some excellent pointers. I feel this gives an excellent “cliff’s notes version” of giving a workable speech.

Want to read some of the best blogs about entrepreneurship? If so, I recommend you take a look at Maren’s list of the 17 best blogs about being an entrepreneur. I’ve checked out each of these, and I think you can learn a lot about creating a successful online business from these sites.

Well that’s it for this week! I definitely recommend you check all these articles and support these sites through Tweets, blog comments, and submitting to sites like Digg. They work hard to provide content…so show them some love!

Take Action. Get Results.

Thanks for the mention Steve. Very kind of you

Gurl

Glad the post helped get you thinking. That’s one of the major things I want to do with my blog- Get people to consider things, even if they don’t like my ideas on how to do whatever the topic of the day is. Not enough people in the world think for themselves these days.

Thanks for the link back…It made my day when I saw it in my dashboard and came by to read what was up.

I loved the not having a backup plan article. Reminds me of when I bought my first house. It was a case of ‘rent the sucker, or bye-bye house’
