I had defined ‘Success’  to basically mean reaching a certain achievement or goal; possibly monetary but also involving other elements as well, such as a position or a lifestyle that a person desires.

“Smile In The Mirror”

ShareI got up at 5:42a.m. today. It was raining. I love that sound, so peaceful. It makes you want to go back to sleep. But I didn’t. I looked out the window to confirm that it was really raining, walked into the bathroom, then stood in front of the mirror & smiled.    “Hi Matt,…

“Do You Practice Persistence?”

ShareOne of the simple pleasures I enjoy in life is the study of words. I will often set at my desk and in a spare moment pick up my old (and worn) Websters Dictionary (1971 edition) and just begin to skim the pages studying various words that stand out to me in the moment. I…

Do You have A “Doers Creed” ?

ShareToday I would like to pose to you a very simple question, and that is “Do you possess what  a mentor of mine has termed a “Doers Creed”? What is this ‘creed ‘ you might ask. Simply stated it is what I would call  your basic  mission statement in the life that you are declaring to the world…
