Bе vigilаnt about еvеrу financial trаnѕасtiоn, no matter how small. Evеn thоugh сhесkоut сlеrkѕ use computerized registers, thеу can still make miѕtаkеѕ when entering items оr mаking сhаngе.

In tоdау’ѕ economy, it’s роѕѕiblе to mаnаgе mаnу, if not аll оf these trаnѕасtiоnѕ with a dеbit саrd. Credit саrdѕ саn рrоvidе аdvаntаgеѕ through their rеwаrd programs, аnd disciplined uѕе саn hеlр build creditworthiness.

Success: How To Reach Your Full Potential By Accessing Higher Self

Your Higher Self

This is a question I want you to ask yourself each time you face a problem or an obstacle in life – how would my best and higher self respond to this situation?

What would you do if you were at your absolute best? If you were that strong, powerful, and charismatic person? How would you respond.

Watch the YouTube Video below:

***(SUBSCRIBE to the YouTube Channel by CLICKING HERE)***

Maybe you have experienced a time in your life where you were blown away by yourself but you felt confident, you felt strong, disciplined, and it seemed like you were making all of the right decisions. I’m sure you remember this time in your life.

Maybe this happened only once in your life and your not always in this state where you didn’t hesitate and where you were always happy. What would you do if you could access that version of yourself all the time?

dragon-ball-xenoverse-how-to-unlock-super-saiyan-2

Each and every single human being has this “higher self” that is tucked deep within their soul that is capable of reaching their full potential. This is the best version of yourself that you may reach 1 year from now, 2 years, or even 20 years, but it is there.

No matter how much you have failed, fallen short, or have missed the mark in life, I am here to tell you today that you are capable of doing anything you’ve dreamed of.

How To Become Your Higher Self: Act As If

The key to becoming mega successful is to access your highest self. This the best version of yourself that God is calling us out to be. If you want to achieve crazy things in life, you have to be able to access the version of yourself that will get things done. The way to do this is to “act as if.”

Every time you encounter a difficult situation or a challenge your current or your past self may respond to this situation in one way – but your higher and best version of yourself would act differently. Maybe your best version would respond by looking at the obstacle as blessing, a source of motivation to get even stronger, or respond by taking massive action – the cure all to all problems.

Anytime you encounter a difficult obstacle or a situation, automatically ask yourself this question “what would my higher self do now?” By doing this you will always get the answer you were looking for and once you do, just simply step into it and act it out.

By doing this you will be very surprised by the changes you will get. Simply meet every situation as your highest self – make the conscious decision to step into to every moment as that highest version of yourself and you will see a huge difference in your life.

Conclusion

The potential is already within you. You already have all of the answers and solutions to the problems and obstacles you face. You just have to ask that higher version of yourself those questions and then step into the answers that you get and before you know it you will be the person you have always dreamed of becoming, the person God has called you out to be, and the person you knew you were capable of becoming.

It’s Time To WAKE UP Now (Part 2 of 2): 4 Things That Will Help You CRUSH Your Morning Routine and BOOST SUCCESS

Mornings are a beautiful time. The sun rises, the birds chirp, and breakfast is sizzling. But it is the morning that is the MOST critical time of the day. Our morning activities are the ones that will set the tone for the rest of the day.

“There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope”

– Bernard Williams

If you’re reading this post and it’s the morning, good. I want you to understand that this morning you have the chance to start and live yet another day. Be grateful for that and take advantage of the opportunity. Seize the moment.

In part 1 (Why You Must Bite the Bullet) I discussed why it is important to complete your most difficult and important tasks in the morning towards accomplishing your goals. This article is merely a continuation of that but will focus more on the spiritual and physical elements that you can implement into your early morning routine for optimum success.

Here are 4 things to incorporate into your morning routine that will jumpstart your day in the right direction and power pack your success:

1.  Prayer/Time With God

Taking care of our spirituality is crucial. It is important to be grateful for being alive. Be thankful for the things you that have and the loved ones in your life.

woman-praying

Prayer will help you get your tasks done. It keeps your mind and thoughts free and positive. It keeps you grounded and will inspire you to swiftly move through any barriers you face throughout your day.

Reading bible scripture and spending time with God in prayer has truly helped me overcome many obstacles that I have faced in life and it helps me to be thankful for the gift of life everyday. Life is beautiful.

“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough”

– Meister Eckhart

2. Take A Cool Shower

Taking a cool shower is the best way to get your juices flowing.

Sometimes, we wake up feeling groggy and sleepy but simply taking a cool shower will open your eyes right up. There’s no better way to get a rush of energy than the feeling of cool and refreshing water running over your face and body.

Cool showers (and even cold, if your brave enough) are very good for us, not only because they will increase your alertness but because, there are also proven medical benefits.

Here Are 6 Medical Benefits of Taking Cool Showers:

1) helps to refine skin
2) improves blood circulation
3) stimulates weight loss
4) speeds up muscle recovery
5) eases stress
6) relieves depression

With that being said, taking a cool shower should absolutely be one of the first things on your A.M priority list. Fight off temptation to put this off until after breakfast, or worse, until the evening.

2. Eat The Breakfast of Champion

Breakfast is in fact, the most important meal of the day. It gives you energy to carry out the rest of your day and it helps your body burn calories throughout the day. Studies have also shown that breakfast eaters have better memory and concentration levels as well as a lower chance of having diabetes, heart disease, and being overweight.

With that being said, just because breakfast is healthy doesn’t mean all breakfast is good. Stay away from the Egg McMuffins from McDonalds and loading up on processed Dunkin Donuts eggs sandwiches. These foods are bad for us and should be avoided.

mixed-fruit-healthy-breakfast

Instead Here Are 6 Healthy Foods To Have For Breakfast:

1) Eggs – eggs are undeniably a great thing to have in the morning. They will leave you feeling fulfilled after eating them and are also high in protein which is good for producing muscle. Not only that but they contain antioxidants called zeaxanthin and lutein which are good for eye health and help to lower chances of contracting cataracts.

2) Oats – pats are great breakfast choice that will also fill you up. They have a fiber called beta-glucan that helps to reduce cholesterol. Oats are also known to help protect heart health and decrease blood pressure.

3) Chia Seeds – Chia Seeds are rich in fibers that absorb water and help to cause more movement throughout your digestive tract. This leads to better bowel movement and better overall digestion. These are great to put in protein shakes.

4) Fruits– Fruits are delicious and can be a part of any breakfast meal. All fruits contain many vitamins, water, and nutrients. They are also very low in calories which will help prevent you from getting fat.

5) Protein Shakes – A protein shake is very filling and a tasty way to start your morning. They are high in nutrients depending on which ingredients you chose and also help to preserve muscle mass and also help to promote weight loss.

6) Green Tea – green tea is great alternative to coffee. It increases alertness, your mood, and increase metabolism. It also contains an antioxidant that has been linked to protecting brain, nervous system, and heart from being damaged.

Kickstart your day with these superfoods and you will be on your way to a healthier more vibrant life full of productivity and focus.

3. Go For A Jog/Workout

No matter what your profession is or what your ambitions may be. The body is undeniably the most important asset you have. If you neglect your body, don’t expect to be able to produce on a high level. Scientific evidence proves that people who workout in the morning have an easier time concentrating on tasks and have sharper memories.

drwttuncr_1912odu_weights20help20testosterone20levels

With that being said, I am a huge advocate for jogging in the morning, going to the gym, or both, if possible. It is a great way to clear your mind and another way to wake up.

It is critical to maintain a healthy body if you want to obtain massive success. Make sure to work out and do cardio exercise on a consistent basis and try to do at least one of these activities in the morning.

Success: How To Be Successful (3 Steps) & Why You Can Have Success

Too often people become complacent. They settle. They see Mark Zuckerberg or Anthony Robins and say, “I CAN’T be successful like those people because only CERTAIN people can become THAT successful.”

This is a LIE.

After studying the habits of greats and learning what it takes to be successful from high achievers. The truth is, anybody can be successful.

Some people just don’t want you to know that.

In this article I will give you the truth, and 3 steps to follow that will guarantee you find success in life.

Watch the YouTube video below:

* ( SUBSCRIBE TO THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL BY CLICKING HERE ) *

The Truth

People are not born successful. Success is made. Success is earned. Success is fought for. If one person can do something, than YOU TOO can do it.

reasons-women-should-practice-martial-arts-600x399

We All Have 24 Hours in a day. The only thing that separates you from the next person, is what you chose to do with your 24 hours.

Some people chose to eat doritos and watch Family Guy for 4 hours out of the day. While others instead chose to workout, build a business, and write a book during the same 4 hours. As time progresses, the first person ends up unhealthy with no success, while the second will be in great shape with a business, product for sale, and more resources.

The habits you chose shape your Life. CHANGE your habits. Change your life.

Here Are 3 Steps So That YOU TOO can be successful:

Step 1: Find Your Passion and Pursue It

What do you love to do? Find that answer and begin to pursue it. I guarantee that you will not reap great success if you are not doing what you love.

While at work you may feel like you deserve better. It’s because your subconscious knows what your true purpose is and it won’t stop bothering you until you follow your passion and stop delaying the process.

I failed to listen to my conscious for a while and I had to learn the hard way. I worked in a finance career and the sky was the limit. I could have made all the money in the world. But it was not my passion. I was miserable. I was only doing it for the money. Big mistake. So I took a leap of faith and left that career so I could instead help people and focus on my own passions and pursuits. Now, everyday I wake up I have a fuel that lights a fire within my soul and gets my day going.

fa72d099-0fae-4e90-98b1-e0194536baaa

When you do what you love. You will wake up and a fire will be running through your soul too. You’ll be excited to “work,” because you will be carrying out your purpose and working towards your legacy.

Anybody who is massively successful did not have to find success, success found them because they were busy chasing their passion.

Examples include: Bill Gates, loves computers. Michael Jordan, loves basketball. Warren Buffet, loves money. Michael Jackson, loves music. Donald Trump, love business. Jesus, loves you.

You get it.

Find your passion, find your life.

STEP 2: COMMIT TO THE PURSUIT OF YOUR PASSION

Now that you have found what you love to do, it is time to commit to taking massive action. This doesn’t mean to merely say you are going to do something; it means to DO IT. It means to pour your heart and soul into it. It means to become the best. It means to realize that you only live once and you have ONE SHOT to make a mark in your LIFE.

Everyday wake up and say to yourself that you will try your hardest; I promise you will not struggle finding motivation if you say this to yourself everyday. Leave it all on the line.

Commit to greatness, not existence.

Step 3: Have A Killer Work Ethic

Success takes hard work. No secrets here.

sweaty-fit-woman

Once you have found your passion, and have made the commitment to pursue it, now it is time to put in the work.

While being motivated is great, it won’t take you far if you don’t have superb skills to back it up.

Sharpen your craft so you can rise to the cream of the crop.

Educate yourself on a daily basis. Implement healthy habits and choices into your lifestyle so that you will be able to function better and more efficiently than your competition.

Most importantly, be consistent. Working hard one day isn’t enough. Do it on a daily basis. People who are very successful work their butts off, they may not show it, but they do.

Success is the end result of relentlessly and consistently enhancing your skills in life, business, and your craft. Do this, and you will maximize the likelihood of being successful.

I hope you now understand that YOU TOO, CAN BE successful.

And remember, be great.

Cheers,

Nigel

Success: 10 Qualities That Make People Wildly Successful

I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to be around many stars from all walks of life such as professional sports, entertainment, and the corporate world and I’ve spent countless amounts of time learning and observing the habits that make these people so successful. They have achieved great levels of fame, fortune, and influence in this world and after years of studying them I have come to the conclusion that there are many common denominators that propel them to the top of their respective fields.

In this article we will take a long and hard look at what it is that makes a select few people so successful, and what it is that they are doing on a day to day basis that gives them the ability to conquer anything that they put their heads to.

Habits are what separate one person from another. When someone appears to be winning in all aspects of their life, it’s not because they are better than you, it’s simply because they have different habits than you do.

So, without further ado here are:

10 Qualities That Make People Wildly Successful 

1. They are extremely disciplined

Successful people are hardcore and know when it is time to get down to business. You may see the parties, fun, flashy cars, and vacations on their instagram pages, but you better believe that these people hustle and they hustle CONSISTENTLY.

Tell me how often this happens to you, because it happens to me ALL OF THE TIME. How many times do you come up with an idea and decide that you will start acting on it the next day. Then, you wake up super motivated the next day, you get a lot of stuff done, your super productive, you see progress, you’re feeling yourself, and you’re about to be a millionaire (or at least you feel like it) and then you look back one week later to see that you never took any acton again after that ONE day. Yes, I know,  we are all guilty of this.

Anyone who says they never struggled with this is lying to you.

People that are highly successful have trained themselves to act EVERYDAY. I have noticed that great achievers develop a daily regimen and stick to it like glue. The difference between an average person, a below average person, and someone who is great, is that the great person works on mastering his craft EVERYDAY. When you only work on your craft one day out of seven, you are setting yourself up to fail against someone who is working on that same craft six days out of seven.

My recommendation to you is to first figure out what your goals are. Next, prioritize which activities most urgently need to be completed. Then, divide your day into time blocks and fill each block up with the activities that are highest on your priority list. Make sure to include leisurley hobbies as well, such as spending time with family or hanging out with friends. One thing I like to do is set aside some blocks and allocate that time to what I call my “chill time.” It’s very important to live a little and watch a ball game or go beat up your girl or something (play fighting, for all of you wise ones). If you are having trouble finding some time to wind down, you’re doing too much and you need to rebalance your priorities and allocate your activities differently, if you look hard enough there is something that can wait until later. Either delegate the activity to some else or eliminate it from your block entirely. Finally, it is best to schedule activities around the same time each day. For example: GYM @ 7AM on Mon, Tues, and Weds.

Make a regimen, stick to it like your life depends on it, no excuses, stuff will get done, and then you can thank me later.

hello-my-name-is-consistency

2. They Are Extremely Optimistic 

I can’t begin to tell you how important this is. Almost any successful person I’ve ever met is very POSITIVE. Not only are they positive, but they hate negativity. They steer away from negative people and situations like they are running from the plaque. Quite literally, they run away from the stuff, and you should too.

I’ll be the first to admit that life is not always sunshine and rainbows, but this is precisely why you must be optimistic. Because when something doesn’t go according to plan, and it will, only positive thinking and action will get you back on track.

There are even scientific studies that show that our brains are primed to respond to positivity in a way that reinforces positivity. In simpler terms, our brains reward us for positive thinking by providing more positive thought patterns and guiding us towards happiness. It is much easier to take over the world when you are feeling happy, plus people will like you more. Nobody likes to be around someone who complains all the time and sucks all of the good vibes out a room.

Be positive through good times, through the bad times, and you will be immensely rewarded.

3.  They Are Avid Readers

Great entreprenuers and successful people all read, A LOT. As cliche as this may sound, the saying, “read to achieve,” is spot on. In order to achieve, one must truly learn to master this craft because by reading you will learn and be better equipped to handle any obstacles you may face in your journey.

There is no way anyone can achieve high levels of success without the proper knowledge. Period. Mastering your craft requires taking the time to educate yourself. Successful people know this and they gobble up knowledge like there is no tomorrow. Knowledge is power, I can’t emphasize this enough, the benefits are endless. It will educate you, make you a better writer, speaker, and also make you an overall more interesting person to converse with.

I always like to say, “read a book, and you read someones entire life.” Essentially, by reading a book you get to read someone’s whole life experience. Therefore, if the author is 60 or 70 years old, this means that you have the opportunity to learn something that took them 60 years to learn in only a span of a couple of days. That is a powerful asset.

We all know that the Lord has told us “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Pick up a book and read it and you will be successful.

4. They Learn From Their Mistakes, and Apply

Want to see results, and see results fast? Do this. I guarantee you, your productivity will sky rocket.

I’m sure you hear this often: ‘learn from your mistakes.’ But people always seem to leave out the APPLY part. This is what successful people and entrepreneurs do, and do it well. I learned this, and believe me it works. It’s critical.

Many people go through life making the same mistakes over and over again. Sure they may “learn” from their mistakes. But the problem is, they never DO anything about it. When you make a mistake you have to lick your wounds, learn the lesson, and then APPLY the lesson you learned IMMEDIATELY. Do not hesitate. The faster you can learn and apply, the more productive you will become and the faster you will attain your goal. This advice is golden.

Here is an exercise:

Apply any lesson you have learned starting RIGHT NOW, this second, and never look back. Don’t wait. Do this everyday. There will be a change in your level of productivity.

5. They Look the Part

This one is a no brainer. Look at the superstar in your office, on the field, or on the stage and you will see a common trend. People who achieve high level success are usually dressed sharp as a tack.

Sure, there are always exceptions to every rule, but I can guarantee you a majority of successful people are very well dressed and have good hygiene. Your appearance is literally the first thing people see when meeting you for the first time and we live in a society that WILL judge you based on how you are dressed. So, if you are slacking (no pun intended) in this department you are putting yourself at a huge disadvantage, my friend.

Food for thought, it is common knowledge that any successful business person makes money, and to make money, at some point you will have to ask someone else to give you THEIR money in exchange for your service or product. Which of these gentlemen would you feel more comfortable forking over that hard earned money to? The guy on the left or the guy on the right?

fyuby

 

The guy on the right, hands down. You don’t have to be America’s Next Top Model but do you yourself a favor wear clothes that fit, take a shower, and clip your nails. You’ll feel good and you’ll do great.

 

6. They Are Passionate

Countless times I have encountered people that have a very lucrative career but are absolutely miserable because they are not passionate about it. Successful people love what they do. When you love what you do, you will never feel like you are working another day in your life. Things will begin to flow and you’ll find yourself feeling happier.

Passion is the fire that light’s the mega successful’s candle. It can seem like they can endlessly work on their craft, because to successful people it is not work. If you try putting your full effort into a job a career you hate, you will eventually burn out and become very frustrated.

If you are in a career or field that you do not love, I would recommend finding a way to transition into a path that gets your blood rushing. It will be the best decision you make in your life and one that will give you a nice return on investment.

7. They Are Obsessed 

If you want to amass a large amount of success, money, and freedom in this life, this may potentially be the most important piece of advice in existence. To win, to truly win, you must aim dominate your field. Every successful athlete, entrepreneur, lawyer, stockbroker, or celebrity, is obsessed with operating at their optimum level and they then apply MASSIVE ACTION to their purpose.

There are BILLIONS of people on the planet who all would like to have money, freedom, and success. In order to rise to the cream of the crop, it is absolutely imperative to dominate your field. Successful people understand this and they are willing invest MASSIVE ACTION into each and every single day to achieve those goals.

Kobe Bryant took 1,000 shots a day, Donald Trump said he goes sleepless on some nights when working on a deal, I once heard of a law student at the top of his class at a very reputable law school that was known to spend 10 hours EVERYDAY in the library. That’s some RIDICULOUS work ethic.

Don’t be afraid to go all in and pursue your goals with all of your heart, you only live once, after all. Make it count.

8. They Are Willing To Adapt

This is a crucial skill and one that you must be aware of regardless of what field you are in or you will be oblitherated. Successful people are constantly with the times. They understand that they don’t have to change everything about their operation, but they are open and willing to adapt and update areas of their careers that may expose their business to downside risk due to the new trends and technology engulfing society. People that have too much pride and a “stick with my guns” attitude can really suffer great consequences if they refuse to acknowledge the changes taking place around the globe and get caught in their ways.

The world is changing everyday and technological advances are constantly being rolled out to the masses, it has changed the world of business. Fortune 500 companies are run differently now than they were 30 years ago. The fortune 500 companies that understand this are still dominating the marketplace to this day, the ones that did not are no longer in existence. It’s that simple, if you don’t advance with the times, you will be left behind.

I would highly recommend investing the time to educate yourself about the new technologies and advances that are changing and evolving your field. If you’re an entrepreneur, learn about marketing, as that is an area that has been drastically changed due to the social media phenomena. This will help you to avoid new advancements coming back to bite you and your wallet when you are least expecting it.

9. They Accept and Understand Both Their Strengths and Weaknesses 

Robert Herjavec, a mogul that built a $200 million dollar business empire and well known for his appearance on NBC’s ‘Shark Tank,’ once talked about what makes him successful and what he said has always stuck out to me. He said, “what makes me successful is that I understand what I am good at and what I am bad at…always focus only on what you are good at because if you to try to beat someone at something you are bad at, there will always be someone out there who is good at that thing, and he will eat your lunch each and every single time”

Don’t let someone else eat your lunch.

Successful people understand that they are not good at everything, and they accept it. Put you energy and effort in to things that you are talented at naturally and your chances of achieving at a high level are much better. If you try to play on somebody else’s turf you will lose every time.

Stay in your lane.

10. They Know How to Relax

This one is my favorite–vacation. Almost all highly successful people that I have learned from all know when it is time to take some time off and recharge the batteries.

When you work hard and pound the pavement day in and out, it is so important to reward yourself with a vacation or at the very least take a break from time to time. Going out with some buddies, spending time with family, going on adventures, or taking an unforgettable vacation somewhere will pay it’s dividends to both you and your dreams. It will give you time to reflect and to come up with new ideas for your career or business.

Sometimes our best ideas come when we are in a state of relaxation and fun.

Learn to lighten up, take a deep breath, and be thankful for the simple things. After all, what’s the point of working so hard if you don’t get to enjoy all your accomplishments?

 

Cheers. Be Great.

 

 

 

 

Success: The #1 SECRET To Being Successful

What is Their Secret?

What do the 1% of highly successful people understand, that the remaining 99% of mere mortals can’t seem to grasp?

Ask anybody who has achieved any high level of success and they will tell you:

“I am simply obsessed with being the best, I am obsessed with getting better everyday.”

It’s all about taking MASSIVE ACTION.

Some Highly Successful People with Insane Habits 

Here are some examples of obsessed individuals that took/take massive action everyday that you have probably heard of:

Two of the richest men in America–Warren Buffet and Mark Cuban–have both attributed their success to their insane reading habits. Buffet has said that he reads at LEAST 1,000 pages per day. Mark Cuban has said he spends at LEAST 3 hours a day in the books.

Legendary writer Mya Angelou rented a separate hotel room exclusively for writing and stayed there EVERYDAY from 7AM to 2PM.

NBA great Kobe Bryant is known for taking 1,000 shots PER DAY.

Legendary pop star Michael Jackson has said that he wrote around 100 songs PER ALBUM. It’s also said that he has around 500 songs that have yet to be released to the public.

You get the point.

Become A Master

These are just a handful of people who have amassed massive amounts of wealth in their lifetimes and have attributed their successes to their insane work habits. These people HUSTLE and they HUSTLE HARD.  To be successful in this world you have to make a decision today. COMMIT to something and MASTER IT or be average.

Whether you are a singer, writer, lawyer, entrepreneur, doctor, or taxi driver; you have to learn about your craft and master it if you want to be very successful. Celebrities and greats at the top from all different professional fields all understand that they have to DOMINATE their space to stand out and be noticed or they will be lost in the crowd and forgotten about, or worse, never known.

We can make all the excuses in the world. ‘It’s too hard’ or ‘I just don’t have the time.’ At the end of the day, you have to MAKE  it happen.

The Critical Question

I want you to ask yourself right now, do I really want to achieve my biggest dreams? Do I want to live out my dream life and am I willing to do what it takes to accomplish them? If the answer is yes, then get to taking MASSIVE ACTION now, commit and don’t look back ever because…

If you don’t SOMEBODY ELSE WILL.

 

Cheers. Be Great.
