How to Capture Your Million Dollar Ideas

Someone recently told me that nine out of ten adults have a cell phone. I didn’t run out and research the numbers, but considering that every single person I know has a cell phone it’s probably a fairly accurate statistic.

Wealthy, middle-class, doctor, lawyer, floor-sweeper … it doesn’t matter. Everyone I know uses a cell phone. (Everyone over the age of twelve, anyway.)

A Creative Method For Brainstorming Ideas

I do some of my best thinking when I’m running.

There’s something about the act of exercising that allows my mind to come up with creative solutions to any problem I’m experiencing. Usually what happens is I’ll think of a simple one sentence about my predicament, lace up my shoes, and hit the pavement.

Developing the “5 Daily Actions” Success Habit

We all want something. It could be a new car, a different job or the ability to work from the comfort of your home. You get the point. What you have to remember is this— Wanting something doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily get it.

First…Visualize

Developing the 30 Day Success Habit

Once in a while you come across something that completely changes your life. This happened to me late last year.

While scrolling through Steve Pavlina’s site, I came across his concept of the 30 Day Habit Experiment. His idea is to “test drive” a specific habit for 30 days. Then at the end of this period you make a decision to keep it or not.

As you probably know it’s a challenge to develop (or change) a habit. But if you introduce this concept into your personal growth, it becomes much easier to develop successful habits.

Here’s why…
