Rank #1: Don’t Like Who You Are? Change Who You Are!
If you are unhappy with who you have become in life, there is a simple question that will redirect you -
What do you want to be different than it is now?
Every choice you have made has put you where you are. If you want something different, all you have to do is make different choices.
Yes, it is that simple.
Different choices mean a different direction. A whole new world is waiting for you.
Who will you become today?

Rank #2: Emotional Trigger Mastery
Do you ever find yourself emotionally triggered and tossed off track for the entire day?
You are an emotional person. When emotions keep you from logically navigating your day, problems begin.
How do you control being triggered?
1) Identify what triggers a response that you want or don’t want to experience.
2) Decide how you want to feel when triggered. Make a plan to respond.
3) The next time you are triggered, recognize what is happening and execute your plan.
Identify. Decide. Respond.
The more you catch what emotionally triggers you, the more control will have over how you feel. That is true power.

Rank #3: Eliminate Distraction The Easy Way
Getting what you want in life requires one thing. Focus.
It's a simple fact; you get what you focus on.
But how do you get focused when distraction is everywhere?
That’s is easy.
If you feel like you are wondering and wobbling on your life journey, there are two questions you should ask:
1) Am I wondering and wobbling because that's what I want to do?
2) If not, what SHOULD I be focusing on right now?
Distractions are the same as a focus - only pointed in the wrong direction. A quick adjustment is all it takes to get yourself back on track.

Rank #4: Life. Work. Balance.
Life. Work. Balance.
A long time ago, you found yourself graduating high school and thrust into real-life.
I’m sure you gave lots of thought to your future. Then again, you were young. Twenty years later, things can look very different.
Over the years, I’ve learned something about working for a living:
1) Chasing money, advancement, and being significant will keep you busy. It will also blind you from other areas of life you would enjoy.
2) Pursuing passion and mission without considering real-life is a recipe for frustration.
Choose career opportunities that allow you to run fast, feel important, make money, and will enable you to serve your passion and mission.

Rank #5: How to Make the Law of Attraction Work for You
Get the Coaching you need to take your life to the next level at https://motivationtomove.com.
I've always believed the Law of Attraction should be called Law of What You Think About Most.
Like attracts like. What you think about, you get.
If you think, "I won't get it because I never do" - you are correct.
Dreaming of a new life while focusing on your current problems is a sure way to keep spinning your wheels.
The trick is to focus your attention and actions on what you want to attract. That will require a dedicated effort. Vision Boards, lists of Goals, daily journaling are all great ways to stay on track.
The Law of What You Think about is magical and straightforward
Decide what you want. Believe it is possible. Focus on the future, not the past. Don't stop until you get it.

Rank #6: Steps of Change
Is there something you would like to change about your life?
Stop smoking, lose weight, get a better job?
No matter what you choose, you will always climb the steps of change.
Stage One: Known as Pre-contemplation. This stage appears when an idea pops into your head for the first time.
Stage Two: Contemplation. This middle ground is where most folks get stuck. It can go on for a lifetime.
Stage Three: Determination. You’ve made up your mind and begin preparing for what is to come.
Stage Four: You get started. You are in action mode. There is no turning back.
Stage Five: Maintenance mode. Your job is to keep what you have. This stage may also last your entire life.

Rank #7: You Must Change Before Anything Else Changes
People have always sought change for themselves, their life, or the world.
If you want to change, there is a constant truth; you must change before anything else changes.
Many smart folks agree -
Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Leo Tolstoy, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
What about Albert Einstein?
“The world, as we have created, is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
Do you want to change something about today, tomorrow, or the future? You must change before anything else changes.
Have you learned lessons from past experiences? You have already changed, and your future is better for it.
Rumi said, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
If tomorrow you want to be better than today and yesterday, something has to change. That something is you.
If you want to make more money, serve more, and be happier next year, something has to change this year. That something is you.
If you want this life to be well-lived, something has to change today. That something is you.
What if you want everything about your life to be perfect? Listen to Winston Churchill. “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.”
It’s so simple.
You Must Change Before Anything Else Changes.

Rank #8: Do What Makes Your Heart Sing
Have you ever found yourself working for hours while time flies?
You are doing what makes your heart sing!
Some folks say, "Do what you love, and you'll never work another day in your life."
That's not true.
You will work harder than ever - and will love every minute of it. Your rewards will come like never before.
It's easy to dream of a less complicated life when all you have ever done is live a complicated life.
That's not the issue.
When you realize that there are never enough hours in the day - and you don't care - nothing else will matter.

Rank #9: Success Habits
Whatever you get in life is a result of your daily habits. What is a habit?
According to the dictionary, it is a settled or regular tendency or practice. It is also something that is especially one that is hard to give up.
Good habit or bad - they are hard to give up. If that’s the case, you may as well choose good habits.
In a survey of 233 self-made millionaires, here’s what they did that lower-income earners didn’t -
Get up early, read, a LOT, spend 15 - 30 minutes each day on focused thinking.
Good habits, done daily, create success.
Made exercise a priority, spend time with people that inspire them, pursue their own goals.
Settled habits create settled success.
Get enough sleep, have multiple incomes, avoid time-wasters.
If you’re not getting the results you want, there is a high likely hood that you are not giving up your current habits.
Until you establish new habits, little will change. When you do, everything will change.

"Lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate. Take the front line when there is danger. People will appreciate your leadership." - Nelson Mandela
"A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want to be done because they want to do it." - Dwight D. Eisenhower
"A person who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd." - Max Lucado

Rank #12: Procrastination Distraction Condition
Do you ever feel like you are procrastinating?
What if I were to tell you that you are not, and there is an easy fix.
It’s hard to tell how many dreams have are being crushed from the inability to get things done.
Procrastination is nothing more than a distraction from current life conditions. Decide that your current circumstances are no longer acceptable, you stop procrastinating.
What if there was something deeper?
What if you were filling your day with non-stop activities in preparation to reach your goals? But it feels like you are procrastinating?
You are not, and one day, when you’re ready, you will begin.
You are distracted, happy in your toiling, and filling yourself with growing frustration.
You are not procrastinating; you are Fixin’ to get ready.”
You’ll know you are Fixin' when you are working toward your goals yet feel like you can’t get momentum to get started. You are not procrastinating. You are waiting to reach the starting line.
Fixin’ happens when you get caught up in details and become overwhelmed. The solution is to simple. Forget the big picture. Choose a starting point. Begin.
If you are procrastinating, STOP IT. If you are fixin’ to get ready, STOP IT. There is no try. There is only do. Thanks, Yoda.

Rank #13: Is Your Future Slipping Away?
Have you noticed how everybody is running so fast these days?
Are they living in the moment? Are they dwelling on the past? Are they dreaming of the future - and waiting for it to arrive?
Any human would experience a combination of all three every day. That's normal as long as it doesn't get in the way of living.
A decade ago, my first wife passed away from Cancer. She was 46 and too young to die. I was too young to be a widower. My children too young to lose their Mom.
While challenging, our family had an unconventional outlook on life - and death. In fact, our goal was to make it the best death ever. Sadly, we achieved that goal. It was the strangest accomplishment any of us had ever experienced.
After she passed, my daughter, Carlyn, wrote a poem that resonates to this day -
Soon we'll all find our way.
Soon we'll know what.
Makes us who we are.
Soon we'll wake up.
To a day we can appreciate.
Soon we'll know that.
Tomorrow we'll be better.
Soon we'll trust that everything's okay.
That the past is gone.
Can't hold us back.
Soon we'll smile about today.
Soon will come too soon.
Don't let it slip away.
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future. Don't let it slip away.

Rank #14: Ultimate Time Management
It seems everybody is obsessed with Time Management. Who do we think we are? The Boss of Time?
The truth is, there is not one person on this planet who has the power to manage Time.
No matter how strong you are, Time will not bend to your command.
Whether you sit around and do nothing or push hard toward your goals, Time will remain constant.
What you can manage is YOU.
The most successful, relaxed, and happy people understand that it’s up to them to bend themselves to fit Time. They hold space in their life:
1) Always decide in advance the essential activities you will be doing and when you will be doing them. Focus on actions that must get done and will drive you forward.
2) A week in advance, create sacred blocks on your calendar. Choose the activities that will fill the blocks.
3) No matter what gets in the way, keep your appointment with yourself. Complete your activities in the assigned block. Walk away.
Follow this simple recipe and you will always be a week ahead. You will be locked into your momentum building plan. You will make never-ending progress.

Rank #15: Removing Obstacles That Stand in Your Way
Removing Obstacles That Stand in Your Way
Have you ever wondered how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to think so much?
What if the future or your past didn’t matter?
Imagine if you didn’t worry about the possessions, success, or drama of others?
What would happen if you believed that YOU are in control?
Now you are starting to think like a Stoic Philosopher.
Stoicism is about paring down and simplifying. They eliminate unproductive traits that define the majority of the population. One of the most common is by turning obstacles upside down, creating opportunities, and seeing them as teachable moments.
For a Stoic, every bad thing becomes a new source of good.
Marcus Aurelius said it this way,
“The impediment to action advances action. What stands in your way becomes the way.”

Rank #16: Figuring Out Your One Thing
In the movie “City Slickers,” Mitch was on a mission to find purpose - as if there was a single solution for everybody.
That’s when he met a cowboy with simple yet straightforward advice -
Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is? [holds up one finger] This.
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that, and the rest don’t mean &*#@.
Mitch: But, what is the “one thing?”
Curly: That’s what you have to find out.
Most folks spend their lives searching outside themselves while what’s important quietly rages inside of them. Most happily move through their day with little or no thought. But the search continues - until they finally figure Curly’s secret -
The ONE thing is different for everybody - and it’s far less exciting and easier to find than you think.

Don't Get Stuck In Learning Mode
Have you ever felt as if something was holding you back? You might be spending too much time learning.
The challenge begins when your mind gets confused. Since it can't tell the difference between perception and reality, learning feels like doing. You might be getting smarter, but you are not moving forward.
Here are some simple truths:
1) Learning a new skill is fun and required for a better life.
2) Learning alone will not produce results.
3) You don't have to learn everything. You already more than enough to get started.
When you transform your knowledge into physical action, you will make massive progress. It's time to get moving

Rank #18: No Stress To-Do List
Are you spending your day chasing checkmarks? Are you trying to finish your never-ending to To-Do List?
Most people tend to add to their list without thinking much about it. Then they check their list to remind them how much they haven’t done. That will ruin your day.
A better way is to think of your list as “Did-I-Do-It-List.” While it may seem the same, there is an important difference.
Instead of feeling bound to your list, your new mindset is simple. Check your list to make sure you did what you planned.
I’ll let you decide.
Are you less stressed when you try to keep up with life?
Or are you less stressed when you see how much progress you have made?

Did you know that happy people see the world differently?
They don't wear rose-colored glasses. They have a better way:

2) Happy people accept that challenges are a privilege.
3) Happy people get frustrated but don't give up. Problems mean everything is normal.
