School is NEVER Out!

This is one in a series of excerpts from a book that is part of my daily personal development routine.  The book is written by Mike Brescia entitled "Today is Your Day to Win."

It's a quick morning read and is set up in a daily reading format so when you get to the end of the book you just start again.  I've been using the book nearly 10 years and I get something new and fresh from each read.  I strongly encourage you to add this title to your success library.

It contains great motivational quotes as well as great questions to ask yourself about improving every area of your life.

Here are a few excerpts from today's reading:

Today's Empowering Quote:

Phil Jackson knows how to coach me.  He gets me angry.  When I get angry, I dominate.  It's perfect.  -Shaquille O'Neal

Today's Empowering Question:

Who else can I learn important skills and lessons from now?

Today’s Winning Beliefs:

•    I see each day's new challenges as the way toward high achievement

•    I overcome all challenges that come my way

•    I learn something valuable from everyone I meet

•    I'm now achieving my potential

•    I am getting better at everything I do

•    I believe I can learn anything

Every day is a great day to learn something new and develop new skills for life and business.  Incorporate these ideas and concepts into your daily routine consistently and you'll begin to see gains in the areas of your life you're seeking to improve.


Imagine a business where you can earn almost $10,000 in ONE transaction and take deeply discounted vacations whenever you like.  NOT mlm or network marketing.  NOT a gifting program.  NOT your ordinary home business.  And it's been working for over 22 years.  Click here for details.

Easy Productivity Secrets: Why Most People Struggle to Stay Productive

Easy Productivity Secrets…


There are two big reasons why people struggle to stay productive:

distractions and lack of motivation.


This is certainly easier said than done, especially if you’re a work-at-home

parent. After all, the point of working at home is to be available for your

family when they need you, right?


Sit down and write out an honest list of things that distract you while you

work. For most of us, this list could include things such as: email, social

media, texts, phone calls, instant messages, and the kids.


Keeping this list somewhere in your work area will help you recognize the

distractions before they become a problem. For example, close your email

box and only check it at predetermined times during the day. Sign out of

all instant messengers. Turn the phone on silent. Make sure the children

are occupied for a little while. Taking these steps means you are

consciously making the effort to remove the distractions and focus.


When your friends and family members learn to respect your work time,

this makes things a lot easier for you. Talk to your spouse and children (if

they’re old enough to understand) about the time you've dedicated to

work your hours. It is best if the people in your life can treat your work-at-

home job as if you did not set your own hours. They need to see it as a

traditional job with set hours, during which they leave you alone. They

wouldn't call you at the office 15 times in three hours if they knew your

boss was around, would they? Give the people in your home some sort of

signal when you’re working, so they know to leave you alone unless it is

an emergency. For instance, if you have office, keep the door closed when

you’re working. The closed door is the sign your family needs to leave you



Being productive is a skill. Any skill you obtain will require practice and

repetition to fine tune and perfect. Even the most productive people will

become distracted from time to time. If you find yourself becoming

distracted, take a few minutes to center yourself and refocus yourself on

your commitment to your client, and your business. Then, get back to

work. Eventually, it will become easier for you to re-center and focus each

time you get distracted, which in turn makes it easier to stay focused.
