Why Ambivalence Might Be The Key To Your Success

Ambivalence

I am often asked how I achieved my current measure of success.

My response is a markedly unglamorous soliloquy of: It’s been years and years of hard work, often little money and little bits of progress.

Raising The Bar Is Not Always The Answer

Raising the Bar

“The secret of success: Get up early. Work late. Strike oil.” - John D. Rockefeller

The phrase “raising the bar” is usually used when we are told to strive for better. We hear that we need to “raise the bar” when we want to be more successful so we need to be more competitive. Aiming for better, farther and faster is a great goal to have, but is it how our lives should be?

How These 11 Letters Can Make A Difference In Your Life

man thinking

Ever since I can remember I wanted to be more successful. I grew up poor but lived in a wealthy neighborhood. I read every book I could lay my hands on about how to become more successful. I also tried everything they said to do to become successful, but things just didn’t work out as they said it would for me. The books I read told me that in going after what you want you should go with a full head of steam. In doing this, you will make people “bend to your will.” This was not the case for me. You may have gone this route before and succeeded but for me, I have never found this approach to be successful. Instead, I burned bridges, alienated people and ultimately did not get what I wanted. Maybe there were times when I did “win,” but for me it didn’t feel like it. This “win” was at the expense of relationships, happiness, peace of mind, and personal health, which I felt, was not worth it. As years passed, I read more and more books and followed what they said. For some reason, things never seemed to work out as they said they would, so finally I said, “I’ve had it! Maybe it’s not me. Maybe all these $#&% ‘experts’ are wrong!”

On Writing The “Shitty First Draft”

Shitty First Draft

I’ve been working on the same novel since 1999. Let me do the math for you. That’s sixteen years, folks. Now, mind you, I wasn’t “applying ass to chair” every day of those sixteen years. I took a five-year hiatus to drink my face off in Cleveland, for example. I was on break during my divorce and moves back and forth across country. I was definitely on leave during my five surgeries.

What To Do With My Heavy Expectations (+ Making Good Stuff Happen)

Expectations

If you’ve ever met me (or if you’ve read more than three blog posts) you know I want to make good stuff happen. I want to drink green juice, fit in a good workout, write something mind-blowingly good, catch up with friends, sign a new client, meditate, and give a presentation to a group of smart-hearted women.
