Nonverbal Communication Power

In 1971 Dr. Albert Mehrabian at UCLA published his book “Silent Messages”. In it he said that communication is 55% visual, 38% tonal, and only 7% the words we say.

Since his book was released there has been massive scientific research documenting his findings. This same research also supports the general observations made by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 300 years prior. Read more »

Use Your Imagination for Greater Achievement

Compare the normal adult imagination to that of a child. It’s the difference between a 5 watt light bulb and a 1,000,000 watt search light.

You wouldn’t want to live your life in the fantasy world that most children reside in, but your imagination is crucial. Read more »

Take Focused Action

Have you ever wished for something to happen? You really wanted it, but took no action to make it become real? Haven’t we all….

While in New York attending the “white coat” ceremony for my son Nick, who was beginning medical school at Einstein School of Medicine, I had a great conversation with one of the professors—Dr. Todd Olson.

He talked about the ability to really make a positive impact. He said he and his associates could see when they were hitting the mark in their teaching.

Dr. Olson said, “I think I have one of the best jobs in the world! I get to teach young men and women who are absolutely passionate about their future.

They have had to work very hard to get in to medical school or they never would have made it. They are excited about learning, and are proactively working to make a difference in their world.”

Make A Positive Impact

How many times have you told yourself, “When I have ________ (money, time, better health, etc.) then I’ll be able to _________ (change the world, etc., etc., etc.)”

Or you’ve convinced yourself that, “When they finally do ______ (quit picking on me, make me a manager, etc.), then I can ________ (be happy, whatever.)”

There may even be a bit of truth to those statements—but that’s not all that you are. That’s not all you can do. No matter what circumstance you are in right now Read more »

The Perfect Time To Start

Have you ever heard someone describe another persons’ success as “luck”? “They are just so lucky. Things always seem to work out for them.”

Thomas Jefferson said, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

Got big dreams? Have something you’d really like to do that could help your family, community, church, company, or world? Begin where you are. Read more »

Take Care of Yourself–Managing Negatives

Do you ever feel bored? Do you get down, sad, depressed? Do you yearn for company when others are not around? Though all of these are normal, your “company” part of your brain may need a bit of work.

One evening while socializing with a buddy (I’ll call him Despondent Duffy), we were discussing relationships. He made a comment that I thought over in more detail later.

He said, “I can’t stand to be alone. I need to have people around me all the time or I’m bored or lonely.” Read more »

How to Achieve Your Potential

How many times have you said the word “can’t” in your life?

In actuality the more appropriate word would be “won’t”. It’s not that you can’t, it’s not that you aren’t able, it’s that you are choosing not to do ____________ (wash your car, write the paper, learn something new, confront a troublesome person in your life, etc.)

This great poem by Edgar A. Guest makes the point well. Enjoy and learn! Read more »

Beginning Again–Now!

He dropped out of school at age 13 to go to work and help his mom make ends meet. At 16 he ran away from home because his new step-father beat him. He then falsified papers that allowed him to join the Army, and he served 4 years stationed in Cuba.

After the Army, he was a steamboat pilot, insurance salesman, cook railroad fireman, gas station attendant and farmer. Read more »

Success is the Result of Change

For just a moment think about an incredible pro athlete like LeBron James. Can he only dribble a basketball with one hand? Can he only shoot one type of shot? Can he only receive passes that come to him from his right or left side?

To be maximally effective LeBron has to be able to vary his style of play moment to moment, depending on the person or situation he’s in. He needs to be able to change with the circumstance, and ongoingly read the ever changing situation surrounding him. This is just as necessary for you as well.

Charles Darwin said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
