There Are Three Kinds Of People In The World

The person that MAKES things happen.

The person that WATCHES things happen.

The person that says WHAT the F**** just happened.

What are you going to do TODAY to take control of your life and be HAPPY?

Most people don’t do anything and that is okay if you are a conformist and enjoy basking in mediocrity.

Are you like “Most” people?

My clients definitely are not like most people and if you are taking the time to read this, you know deep down that you not only know better, but also want better for yourself.

Those who make things happen do not take “NO” for an answer. They take the bull by the horns and get up every morning ready to succeed. Ready to do what needs to be done in order to achieve the goals they set forth for themselves. They have an underlying drive that propels them to achieve what mediocre people only dream of.

How easy would life be if you could just wait for someone to deliver your dreams on a silver platter? If you think this sounds cliché, guess what, it isn’t. This is the mentality I come across day in and day out. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not a full on verbal admittance of procrastination, but their actions and behaviors are clear indicators of how these individuals have conditioned their life and thought process.

You are either a:

WILL do it

WON’T do it

CAN’T do it type of a person. The choice is yours!

Don’t let life pass you by. Take advantage of all the opportunities that are around you. Trust me, there are no scarcity of stepping stones out there ready to take you to where you want to be in life.  All you need to do is open your eyes, Get rid of the NOISE! Keep your end goal in mind…MAKE IT HAPPEN! The reality is, only you can.

I have said this at least three times today already.

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

Remember, Don’t be that person that says, “What the F**** Just Happened?”

Go forth and act accordingly…Make it happen NOW!

Was It A Dream Or A Goal?

Today is motivational Monday, and coincidentally, Martin Luther King day as well.  Today, we do not need to look too far for motivation.  Not long ago, in 1963, a man had a dream or so he said. The reality is….It wasn’t a dream at all.  IT WAS A GOAL!

He DID NOT wish it to come true.

He DID NOT say he was going to do it “someday”.

He DID NOT give himself “Noise” as to why he couldn’t do it.

He woke up every morning and did what he needed to do, day after day, EVERY SINGLE DAY in order to achieve his goal. Even on days when just the day before, he had been defeated, deflated and things didn’t look promising, that didn’t stop him from taking action EVERY….SINGLE….DAY!

Martin Luther King conquered adversity in every sense of the word.  Physically beaten, verbally abused, and cast off every single day.

Today, when you are reflecting on how difficult it is to adhere to your calendar, How difficult it is to stay focused on what is important in your life, How you can not seem to muster up the energy to work your plan, look deep within and think about how Martin Luther King felt EVERY SINGLE DAY of his life.

Dare I say it… The great Dr. Martin Luther King did not have a dream.  He had a Goal, he had conviction and he had passion to achieve it all.  There is no stopping an individual that has a vision, an individual that has real goals, an individual that wants what they want, the way they want it. 

 Go out there today and GET IT DONE!

 You do not have a dream, you have your GOALS… Dreams occupy your mind. Goals take over your reality.”


25 Years In The Making And It Is Working In A Big Way

IMG_4388LIGHTNING RELEASES 12 January, 2015 | Monmouth county, New Jersey: New Jersey based Strategic Performance Group, is proud to announce that its Leadership Development coach, David Findel, has already reached its coaching capacity in the first quarter of 2015 and cannot accommodate any new clients. SPG is a well-known professional services firm providing consulting in leadership development, Business development and coaching, motivational training and overall lifestyle balance.  The group headed by David Findel, a renowned connoisseur in the leadership development field, has developed numerous coaching programs such as the “Power of Accountability”, “Leadership Development” and “Removing The Noise”.

According to the sources, Findel definitely understands what methodologies work and for what industries, owing to his great ability to turn the ordinary into highly successful. Findel, has been training highly motivated sales people in the financial world for over 25 years which contributes to the growing practice of coaching presidents, CEO’s and leaders of stock brokerages, Real estate, Mortgage and Insurance firms as well as various other financial institutions. Some sources also believe that David has now become a highly sought after coach for business leaders whom just happen to have an MD, JD and CPA as part of their title, surprisingly enough even celebrity chef.

Findels’ allure comes from the fact that he himself has been in a position to rise to the top. At the young age of 23, after removing what he calls “Noise” and breaking down the barriers that held him back, he began making “things happen”, as he is so proud to say. He has a deep appreciation for the balance that is needed to obtain wealth and happiness. Now he has a myriad of professions and professionals turning to him to for help with their Business development, time management and leadership skills so they can reach their own “next level”, or as Findel is so proud of saying, “Their Pinnacle of personal performance”.

FindelAt least two of the last 2014 clients have renewed their contract for another 6 months, extending their term from 6 months to a full year. SPG is now in the process of interviewing potential clients for the March 2015 coaching program.

In the future, Findel will be looking for “NO Nonsense” individuals who are committed to changing their lives in a significant way. As Findel has often stated, “Mediocrity Is Unacceptable”, hence, he will be even more selective in his recruiting process. “Success is an end product”, “There are no shortcuts, just do the right things on a daily basis and be accountable to yourself” the way I teach it, that’s my coaching philosophy. Everything else will follow suit.

David is considered an expert in the field of leadership development, and is a highly respected and sought after speaker, consultant and coach.

History In The Making. Make Yours!

For my loyal readers, I know you are used to seeing a short video to go along with my daily messages. After much thought, I would like to share with you a slide share that I came across. I feel it is not always what we hear that makes us feel but that visuals too are a great way to stir the soul.

As you make your way through the images, I hope you can read through the hidden messages. Amazingly enough, they pertain to things I guide my clients on a daily basis.

Today’s post in no way has a political message. I hope that yesterday’s world events touched you as much as they touched me and that you are proud to be who you are.  That it encourages you to strive to make a difference in whatever capacity you see fit, whether in the world, your home life, or in business.

The question stands, how does this pertain to coaching?

Commitment – World leaders set their differences aside to show unity to the world in a time that was needed most.

Action – They did not wait for tomorrow or next week to organize a perfectly orchestrated event.  They went ahead and did it. Then and Now.

Contagious – They did it with such conviction and belief that they created a buzz that became contagious.

Inspire – Seeing 3.7 million people gather in unity to combat a long standing problem

Learn – Leaders that have huge differences every day, from a line on a map or a faith in their religion set them aside for the greater good. They learned to see the prize and the end.

Motivate – At the end of the day these leaders forecasted to have 1 million people gather to send a message to terrorism. They were able to motivate 3.7 million people to stand tall in their own belief and they made a statement for the world to notice.

At the end of the day I am not saying you need to make a stance as these leaders did, but what I am saying is that you need to have the heart to make life happen on your terms. To have the conviction that you control the world around you. To move forward knowing that you can do whatever you set your mind to do.
