Resolve, Commit and Fulfill in 2015

You can and you Will…  Let me repeat myself…….

YOU CAN……AND YOU WILL!

What am I talking about?

Your goals, your dreams and everything in between. This time…….I am here to tell you that this time, things WILL be different. This is THE year.  2015 will be your best year yet and failure will not be an option.  Not on my time it won’t be.

I know what you are going to say. I hear the voices in your head already. The army of negativity that has risen within and is waging the war against the general who is commanding you to move forward and defeat mediocrity because the truth is, I can lead you through this battle but only you can defeat the enemy. You are the only one who can destroy all the negative, self-deprecating thoughts that you allow to take up space in your brain.

David, “you don’t understand,” you say. David, “I’ve been down this path before,” “I’ve started over so many times that I’ve stopped counting,” you plead.

I know, and more so, I understand.

I know that you have witnessed countless of New Year’s come and go with your resolutions flying in the wind just a mere two weeks into the new year. Guess what, so has 99 percent of everyone else. You are not alone.

People often hear me say, “The difference between a dream and a goal is a timeline.” You need to write it down and make it happen.  So take a moment RIGHT NOW, BEFORE the ball drops and you make your New Years Eve resolution and list the top three things you would like to accomplish in your life this year. Go ahead, write them down and be very specific.

No pressure. If you are afraid then you will continue to live a life that is less than what you deserve and quite honestly, you don’t deserve better if you don’t believe in yourself.  BUT if you stand steadfast in your belief that you are reading this for a reason and there is no such thing as coincidence and that you have received this or even stumbled across it for a reason, then get ready for a total transformation, because YOU have to believe that you have what it takes.  Remember another David Truism,  “What ever the mind can perceive it can and will achieve…”

There is no shame in failing, it’s how we rise again that matters.

Below you will find the top 4 things that you will need in the first few weeks of January. Through my blog, I will continue working with you on a monthly basis over the next 12 months. Don’t be shy. Ask questions, leave a comment, email me or even message privately, but DO SOMETHING.

My advice for the month of January:

  1. Take action – Write down your top 3 goals for the year. No goal is too big or too small. 
  2. Believe you can do it – Remove the Noise…..Remember, YOU CAN and YOU WILL!
  3. Failure is NOT an Option – Set backs are different than failure. Keep your eye on the prize and move forward.
  4. Stay Strong – Our mind is a powerful tool. Mental strength will propel you in the right direction, so negate all the negative thoughts and focus on strategies that will help you win the war.

2015 is closely upon us. Decide to make it a year that is all about creating what YOU WANT AND DESERVE.

From my family to you and yours, I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year,  complete with personal fulfillment and happiness.

It’s You Vs. Yourself

It’s Monday and yes…..It’s almost the end of 2014. What does that mean for you?

It means…….THE PERSON WHO WINS IS THE ONE WHO THINKS THEY CAN!

Can you win? Do you have it in you?

Success begins with a positive state of mind. Believe that you can do it because at the end of the day, it’s you against yourself.

Spare me all the excuses, the half-truths, the procrastination and all the other “Noise” you tell me, such as; David, in the new year I will do this, I will do that. Forget the half-truths you tell me, what about the ones you tell yourself?

  • I already work too many hours, I don’t have time to do that.
  • I’m afraid of making the call.
  • I’m not sure I can do that. 
  • I can’t do it because it’s never been done like that before.
  • I don’t think it will work.
  • I don’t have everything in place yet, in order to do that, Let me wait until I have it all together to start.
  • I don’t have enough resources to make that happen.
  • I’m afraid to make a mistake. 

The ONLY good part about verbalizing these self-defeating comments to me is that I get to combat them and work through them with you. To have your abilities overtake these fear based comments. I am more concerned about the ones you don’t verbalize. Those are the silent killers.

The only person that wins is the one that thinks he CAN!  He turns the “Think” Into “It will happen by…”

If you don’t take risks, you won’t succeed. If you want to win but think you can’t, you’ve lost already.  If you believe in yourself it becomes a self-fulfilling reality. Don’t let others discourage you. Don’t let the negativity permeate the world you work so hard to create around you.  Don’t let other people’s “Noise” become yours.

It’s not you against them…..It’s YOU vs. YOURSELF!

“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do”

If you are reading this you have already taken the steps to strip away the mediocrity; now prove to YOURSELF that what your mind can perceive it WILL achieve.

Happy Hanukkah

To ALL of our family, friends, colleagues, people we hold dear and near to our hearts, and even those with whom we have encountered a storm with; During this holiday season, whether we are a part of the same faith or not, I would like to share with you my rich culture filled traditions of the Jewish season and wish you and yours a very Happy Hanukkah.
The Menorah stands for light, wisdom, and divine inspiration and as such, My hope for you is that you embrace those things, people or moments that bring light into your life, the way the menorah does.
 With my wife, and our children, we stand together to wish you a fulfilling holiday season.

Mediocrity Is Unacceptable

Our company’s motto is; Mediocrity is unacceptable. I instill this value in one form or another, into all of my clients programs. Not because I want them to be the best, but for one reason and one reason only, because I know they have it in them to be the best! I know they have what it takes to accomplish the goals they set out for themselves.

We are never too old to start moving away from things that hold us back, and according to Cory Nieves, he is proof positive that we are surely never too young.

Cory Nieves is an impressive CEO. A stylish man to say the least and the poster child for NOT Accepting Mediocrity. When life handed him lemons, he didn’t make lemonade, he made hot cocoa and cookies and began an empire and he did it all by the ripe age of 10 years old.

How? …… Why?……

He did this because he DID NOT accept mediocrity. When faced with the challenge of his mother not having a vehicle to drive him back and forth to school and enduring too many winter mornings waiting for public transportation, he developed a can do attitude, he didn’t accept his shortcomings and was determined to figure out a way.

Some may ask; Was he more fearless than others? Naive to failure? I do not have the answers for I do not know Mr. Nieves personally but I will say this, whatever fueled that fire within, he for sure DID NOT allow being a product of his environment to hold him back. He DID NOT allow noise to fester in his mind and more importantly, he DID NOT allow mediocrity to be a staple in his world.

To date, Corey Nieves has accomplished more than his original goal of getting his mother a car. Take a page from Cory’s book and never forget.………..MEDIOCRITY…… IS…… UNACCEPTABLE!
