4.  One Big Web 2.0 Influence Mistake That Will Ruin Your Reputation:

On Friday, January 9th I tweeted a statistic Tony Robbins revealed while being interviewed by one of Success Magazine’s writers.  The statistic is related to the number of people who won’t follow through on the resolutions aka goals they set on New Year’s Day.  Tony said, “98% of the people who set resolutions will give up within six weeks.”

3.  How to Deeply Influence Yourself and Others:

James Van Fleet once said, “Always think in terms of what the other person wants.”

During my nearly 10 years of marriage, I’ve discovered that one of the keys to a successful relationship is thinking in terms of what my wife wants.  For instance, there are times when my wife wants to watch a romantic movie when I’d prefer to watch an action movie.  You might be saying,”Great!  Let her watch her romantic movie and you go watch an action movie on another television.”  Good idea, my rational thinking friend.  However, if I were to act on that type of thinking my wife wouldn’t get what she really wanted it from the experience.  Connectedness. Guess what?  I want to feel that too.

Strategic Influence Objective Number Two Example


It is almost 2017! You’ve probably been thinking about what goals you want to achieve in the new year, have you not? In the days and weeks ahead, you will have many decisions to make about what actions to take to bring about the realization of your goals.

The most important decisions will involve your ability to think strategically before acting tactically. Indulge me for a moment and read this excerpt from my previous post titled, “Three Strategic Influence Objectives,” to garner a better understanding of my thoughts regarding thinking strategically before acting tactically:

Ten Honest Things About Me You Don’t Want to Know


On Monday, January 12th, I was tagged by MultiMedia Producer, Angel McClinton to reveal ten honest things about myself.  Unlike the incredibly talented Angel McClinton, I haven’t included a video presentation with my ten things.  Before I get started, you might want to click on Angel’s name to see her video and forget all about reading my ten things.  Just kidding.  Kinda!  🙂

Alright.  Ten things?  Hmm.  ***Fingers drumming my desk***  Ten things?  Oh, I know where to start:

Can You Remain Silent?


Martin Luther King Jr. once said,“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”

In America we enjoy the inalienable rights of our citizenship which include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our freedoms as Americans are the envy of people around the world. Therefore, it probably comes as no surprise to you that some people want to make America their home regardless of our current economic climate.

Ethically Influencing People Using Web 2.0 Technology


Several years ago I rediscovered a Web 2.0 technology that can be easily used to influence and persuade people to visit your blog or website. Coincidentally, I first read about the technology on a blog. Then Jim Turner, a direct response copywriter and social networking expert, suggested it to me in an email. Upon visiting the website for the technology I immediately noticed these two comments:

New York Times reported,”It’s one of the fastest growing phenomena on the Internet,”and Wired reported it is,”Incredibly useful.”

By now, you’re probably asking, “What is this Web 2.0 technology?.”

What Success Takes


A twitter friend of mine, @GarrettPierson invited me to answer several thought-provoking questions about “what success takes.” My answers to the questions, along with the answers from several other successful business people, will be included in his upcoming book, “What Success Takes,” so keep your eye out for it. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy the following video presentation regarding what leads to success in life.

What Does it Take to Succeed?


After reading the title of this post, you probably repeated the question to yourself, “What does it take to succeed?” Now, here you are– curious to find out if your answer is similar to mine. What’s my answer? I’ll sum it up in the words I heard a tall gentleman with “big Donnie Osmond teeth” say back in the early 90s.

“Success happens because every single day you do something to make it happen.”
-Tony Robbins

Of course, as you know there’s more to achieving success than taking action everyday. However, without action all other advice about manifesting your dreams is pointless. Isn’t it? Even the best selling book of all time informs us of that crucial truth in these words. “Faith without action is dead.” Whether you believe in the bible or not, it’s difficult to deny the validity of those simple words. Wouldn’t you agree?

The other factor that greatly determines our success is belief. Have you heard this saying before? “If you believe you can, you will. If you believe you can’t, you won’t.” I’m curious. Do you believe that you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams in this economy? Hold that thought, please. Before you answer, read about Casas Bahia.

Casas started out on his own selling blankets and bed linens door to door in Brazil. Eventually, he grew his company to the largest retail chain in the country. The shocking part of Casas’ story is his company sells electronics, appliances, and furniture to poor people. In fact, 70% of his customers have no formal income or consistent income. Casas Bahia grosses over $1 billion dollars and very loyal customers.

I ask you again. Do you believe that you can succeed beyond your wildest dreams in this economy? I can’t hear you! Is that you screaming? “Yes, I can!”

Why am I writing about this topic again?

Last month I had the good fortune to be interviewed by a young man and friend of mine named Garrett Pierson about the topic, “What Success Takes.”
