Rank #1: Stop Learning. Start Doing.
The Daily Boost is for people who aspire to live a better life and find themselves confused, frustrated and not knowing what steps to take. We help you find clarity, create your plan, and get motivated.
Rank #2: Be Your Best Every Day
As you stroll through life, you will find opportunities that will present you with a choice - a VALUE choice. Your response speaks volumes about your character. There's no right or wrong. There is only your inner voice guiding you in the direction of your destiny. One selection moves you away. Another moves you closer to the person you want to be. Values are your GPS to navigate life. Rules you choose to follow. Honesty, integrity, family-focused life, work-life balance are all examples of positive Values. There are others that are not so positive. My number one Value is to do my best to do the right thing based on my rules. If I mess up, I say "I'm sorry" and try again. Something to think about.
Rank #3: Living a Life of Goal Setting
Are you excited to be alive today? If not, it might be time to become an intentional goal setter. Goals are the heartbeat of your life. They are tangible expressions of the values you hold and how you act out what you feel inside. Goals create the experiences of your life. Goals are also automatic. If you don't set them for yourself, the Universe and every person you meet will set them for you. You get to decide what you want. You get to set your goals. You get to create your life experience. Always remember that.
Rank #4: Mindset for Success (Part One)
"On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become." -- Anonymous Here are a few ideas to help you rise to your full potential: 1) Live a good lifestyle. Eat good stuff and exercise. Simple. 2) Think long-term. Find your groove. Stick with it. 3) Play BIG. Small thinking is not why you were born. 4) Be responsible. No more excuses. They are not helping you be happy. 5) Learn to be more flexible. Stop being hard headed. Go with the flow to get what you want. 6) Embrace hard work. There is no "Magic Bullet." When you become the person you want to be, you transform yourself into the person you were meant to be.
Rank #5: Instant Better Communication
What if three words could allow you to communicate better and reach your goals faster? Here’s how to stay on track no matter who wants to pull you off course: 1) When asked by others to help them reach their goals it’s time to agree and defer. As an example, say, “Yes, I can help, AND let’s talk about it later when I finish what I’m doing. Watch how folks leave you alone. 2) Inserting the word ‘Yet’ into any conversation will allow you to stay positive and keep your momentum. For instance, saying “Not yet. I’ll let you know when I’m ready” will do wonders. Success and happiness arrive when you stay focused and on track chasing your goals. Prioritize yourself and defer others.
Rank #6: Master Your Mornings
Ask any successful person about the most crucial time of their day, and they'll say, "Mornings." How you use your morning hours sets the pace for your entire day - and less is more. Let's keep this simple: 1) Lose your excuse that mornings are crazy and there is no way to control the madness. Millions of people have lives like yours. The successful and happy ones are taking a little time for themselves - in the morning. 2) Turn off your morning autopilot. You might not be aware of morning behaviors that may not be serving you. You're just getting things done. It's time to be intentional. 3) Reward yourself with a few minutes to ponder your life. Consider any changes you need to make. Fifteen minutes should do it. Mastering your mornings is about taking time for yourself. A few minutes will transform your day - and your life.
Rank #7: Happy No Matter What
Would you like to be happy every day of the week? Maybe it’s time to start thinking like a happy person? There’s no magic to being happier. Rose colored glasses are not required. Just start looking at your day-to-day life the way a happy person does. Give this a try: 1) Accept that merely being alive means you will run into occasional challenges. 2) Realize that dealing with challenges is a privilege that comes with being alive. 3) Welcome frustration. That means that you are not satisfied and are beginning to make adjustments. 4) Accept responsibility for solving your challenges. Run forward and fix them as soon as possible. 5) Deal with everything that life throws at you. Get a great nights sleep. Have another great day tomorrow. It's amazing how that kind of mindset makes most challenges never show up in the first place.

Rank #9: Face Your Passion: Average Perfect Day
How would you feel if every day, on average, was as you wanted? It's time to make your dreams come true and create your “Average Perfect Day.” Here's how it works: 1) Find a quiet spot and write a detailed description of your perfect day. Let your fantasies flow onto paper until you've mapped out morning until night. 2) Focus on your daily experiences, not material goods. In other words, if you want a sports car, focus on how you would feel in the driver seat. 3) Fight the urge to judge. The goal is to slow down, tap into your core, and get excited about what's possible. There is one last rule that you must follow. There are no limitations and no consequences. Let yourself be free to dream. You are going to be surprised at how many start coming true. Looking for more? The Daily Boost produced five days a week to keep you moving toward your goals.

Here's the truth - No matter how much you accomplish today - there will be more stuff to do tomorrow. That will never end.

Rank #16: Formula For Getting What You Want
Are you living intentionally? You are one-third of the way to getting what you want. Would you like it all? Everything begins with intention. However, even though you can win a trophy for having good intentions, you will rarely win the game of life. That takes a formula: Intention + Decision + Action = Happy life. When an exciting thought pops into your head, decide to get into action mode and make it happen. That's a happy life.
Rank #17: Reducing Fear and Anxiety
We're living in one of the most exciting and prosperous times in the history of humanity. It makes you wonder why so many folks suffer from anxiety. Here's one way to make that go away. Changing your environment will change everything. It's the power of place. If you have ever said, "I need some air," you already understand the power of place. Are you trapped in your current state of mind and are unable to see the forest through the trees? Are you fearful of change? Are you aware that you may be unaware of what's going on? It's time to step out for some serious air. You may need a small walk in the park or trip to the gym to take care of it. It's also possible that it's time to change everything. New job. New home. New everything. Is your environment stressing you out and causing anxiety? You must change your environment. Happiness is only a choice away.
