*This is my first blog post :)) Guys I found the courage to share it with you. I have no background in blogging, I just used to write some inspiring posts but with a very simple language. Please note English is not my native language, I would write my blog in Russian. But your comments are very welcome. I know this post is just something that came out rigght from my soul. With no particular structure... I know I will learn it with time. But only with time and practice. Anyways, i need to… Continue

Literature gives us lots of examples of heroes facing down dragons in lots of creative and heroic ways. From the mythical legend of Saint George, to the last desperate shot of Bard the Bowman at Lake Town, stories abound of valiant (and not-so-valiant) dragon-slayings. Like so many kinds of stories, dragon tales can teach us a lot about how to face the dragons in our own… Continue

Well, my home town was on the news this week.
Most of you probably caught the story of the NORAD blimp that went AWOL. It happened to land right in my back yard, and this being the biggest deal my little town has had since the war (that'd be the Civil War, mind you), everyone here wanted to get in on it by visiting the crash site.
Predictably, when both of us went down there (har-har) we were immediately told to go back home. "Nothing to see here," the nice officer… Continue

I have been thinking quite a bit about legacy lately. Maybe it's because I turned 50 yesterday. Maybe it's because I am speaking on the topic in a few weeks. Maybe it's because legacy goes hand-in-hand with intentional living - and that is what I am passionate about.
I know my days on this earth are numbered - somewhere between today and certainly 50 years from now. The Social Security Administration estimates that an average 50 year old male will live until they… Continue

Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.
We constantly have to work on keeping our life in balance. It can be a struggle we deal with every day. My wife and I work full-time jobs and have to communicate… Continue

Although the World Wide Web has been around for quite some time now, the truth is that many people still don’t consider online safety to be a serious matter. After all, what could happen when you are sitting in front of your computer, in the comfort of your own home?
In fact, there’s… Continue

I know what I am good at. I may not have always known but I realized it after a series of “wannabees” that never materialized.
It started when I was maybe a junior in high school. I loved dancing. Went to dancing classes for years. Decided I wanted to “be a dancer”. Now, try telling a nun,who was my career counsellor you want to be a dancer. I was terrified of her response especially when she told me my plan was not “do-able”. “You’re much too short to be a dancer,” she… Continue

While I was creating my training program, The Grants4All Training Manual, I learned a lot about technology. I had to create and edit videos and hadn’t the foggiest idea how to do so. I took some advice from one of my… Continue

I am jumping in the pool here. I may come back and find this to be inappropriate but I want to get started. I had a blog for years. I wrote a magazine column in an industry journal for years. Then a set of circumstances I may discuss here later made me take a turn inward.
That led to a situation like a hand pump well on a farm where the water level dropped and the pump needs to be re-primed. I am actually old enough to have done that as a kid.
To the subject... I think my… Continue

What if I told you that it is possible for you to set up sales conversions without ever uttering a word to a prospect?
You can, if you proactively plan for a follow-up system that does the work of all those face-to-face meetings required to turn a prospect into a client.
You’ll have to think of things a little differently, but it will be easy, I promise.
C’mon, click the button below and let me explain.…

Change is stressful, but so is unemployment. | Zig Ziglar
Most of the people you know are dissatisfied with their jobs. The numbers, in fact, are staggering. More than three-quarters of American workers say they plan to look for a new job in the next twelve months. Some fear being laid off, downsized, or displaced. Others wonder about the… Continue

I remember having three small children and living on a very strict budget and trying to do my best to provide healthy meals. It was especially challenging when my boys were active, athletic teenagers who could eat non-stop! So please know I don’t understand how difficult it can be financially for many families. But… Continue

One summer, on my way to clean up after weeding, I yanked up a dead shrub. Suddenly, all of my limbs were stinging. To my horror, I saw yellow jackets glued to my legs. When they wouldn’t let go, I wondered if I was going to die!

“I notice that many folks have a disaster in their past. Almost like a requirement these days. What to do if all has been ok?”
A Twitter follower asked me the above question the other day, and her inquiry sparked a blog post. What do you write about when you haven’t endured some sort of crisis? Is disaster a prerequisite for a good story?

What’s Scarier? Fear or Regret?
A wise man once said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do, than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
This week, you will be faced with… Continue

Humans are conscious of themselves and their relation to the world around them. Yet human consciousness has limitations, and errors of consciousness create real problems in the world.
This is where the ego comes into play. The ego can be the engine of consciousness or it can be the agent of concealment that consequently steers an individual in the wrong direction.
The ideal, yet achievable expression of the ego is to ‘know thyself” and by its very nature the ego is perfectly… Continue
