We have a story to tell or something important to say ... a passion to communicate it ... and an ability to write …

And yet we also need to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset about our story or message.

Here are 8 characteristics we need to develop (TrueNorth Ink)

Don't Worry So Much About the 'HOW'

Posted on August 6, 2014 at 11:03am 3 Comments

What’s the better stance for you?

  1. I know exactly where I’m going and how to get there. I’ve developed a bulletproof plan.
  2. I can’t tell you precisely what’s going to happen, but I have a deep-down sense of what it is, and I’m open to what’s emerging in my life.

Welcome these times and seasons in your life: You want what the Creator’s designing, but you’re absolutely clueless as to “how” to get there.

Low-Hanging Fruit is Probably Costing You -- Swing for the Fences!

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 6:00am 4 Comments

Low hanging fruit feels good. A little. And for a little while.

But what’s the cost of always going for low-hanging fruit? If it’s keeping us from swinging for the fences, then the price is high indeed.

Babe Ruth struck out more than anyone. But he crushed a ton of home runs. No one has ever said he was just going for low-hanging fruit.

Every so often we have to swing for the fences.

What can this look like? ...

Do the Impossible – 50 Stellar Quotes (slideshow)

Penny and I are on a new, healthy eating plan, and it’s paying dividends. Even so, at times, there is a strong temptation to revert to past patterns we have known for a long time. My wife was having one of these temporary episodes last evening. (Believe me, I have had my own!)

But she said, “I need to read again about this new style of eating.” She was right. I once heard a leader say that whenever he loses some steam about a project he is working on, he will sit down at a large desk or table and spread everything out — all of the plans and paperwork related to his project. Soon the fire returns.

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS One other thing...I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! ($47 Value) to those who join the REAL Success E-Zine community (also free) at www.liveitforward.com. Feel free to check it out. I really think you'll get a ton out of both these resources.
