Newton’s 2nd Law of Success: Acceleration

Sir Isaac Newton

Last week we started our series, “Newton’s Laws of Success”, with a post about Perpetual Motion which taught us about actively directing our life towards success and happiness instead of allowing a bad day to turn into a bad week.

Today we will look at Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion and see if we can find a way to apply it.

Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion states that the amount of Acceleration (a) on an object is determined by the Mass (m) of the object and the Force (F) placed on it. In other words, if I want to push an object up a hill, the speed in which I can get the to the top depends on how much muscle I put into it and how Newton's 2ndheavy the object is.…

You Were Born for This!

Born for This

Why are you here? Have you ever stopped to wonder?

Some would have you believe that you are merely here because of a reaction between two complex molecules. They would have you believe that there is no purpose to your life other than to procreate and advance the species. You are not special. You are nothing more than a random mixture of DNA. Born DNA

They will tell you that the world is made up of only greed, selfishness, and misery. They will tell you it is okay to become cynical, negative, and depressed because that’s how life is. They will be angry with envy when you succeed. They will be content and self-congratulating when you are down. They will never stop criticizing everything else because “life’s not fair.”

They will tell you that your biggest dreams are foolish and that your deep emotions are over-exaggerated.…

Excuses!

Excuses!

No More Excuses

There is not an excuse you could ever come up with that someone else hasn’t overcome and turned into an incredible success. Do not excuse yourself from the table of success because the first three courses were adversity, hard work, and self-discipline. The final course in that meal includes happiness, accomplishment, and purpose. So stick around for dessert!

It’s the 4th Quarter!

It’s the 4th Quarter!

4th quarter scoreboardThis is it! December is here and it is the end of the 4th quarter for 2012. Remember those goals you set back in January? Seems like a long time ago doesn’t it?

Well have no fear, there is still time to do great things! Did you know that on average 40% of the points scored in an NFL game come in the 4th quarter? That doesn’t make sense does it? If every player is a professional and giving a 100% effort from the start to the finish of a game, the breakdown should be 25% of the points in each of the four quarters.

But something happens in those final minutes of the game. The players and coaches have something in reserve; an extra effort.…

Get Those Hands Dirty!

Get Those Hands Dirty!

    When I first started consulting businesses and providing life-coaching for individuals, I felt that the greatest thing most people lacked was a vision. A real, solid vision of what they wanted for their business or for their life. Most people have dreams floating around in their head of how nice it would be to do this or have that. But very, very few have taken the time to sit down and really think through their ideal life and then write it down. I always felt that if a business or individual could just do that, they would be on their way to a more successful life.

I still believe that to be the case but I have come to realize that there is a second factor that actually seems to trip up a lot of people.…
