Darren Hardy Daily Mojo: "Life is to be lived. If you have to support yourself, you had bloody well better find some way that is going to be interesting. And you don’t do that by sitting around." -Katharine Hepburn *What are you going to do to make this week GREAT? LINK

Darren Hardy Even with every door you hold open, car you allow to merge, smile you flash, compliment you give, encouragement you offer, you are making a deposit into someone’s life. The best part of this form of giving is your bounty to give is limitless and in the end, the feeling of fulfillment you get makes you the greatest recipient. Test yourself, how many times did you make a positive deposit today? LINK

Darren Hardy Book Club: One of the most frequent questions I am asked is: “How exactly do I ‘journal’?” Lucky for me (and YOU!) @Jim Rohn left behind his teaching of this essential art form in “How to Use A Journal”. You all know about my gratitude journal (at least you SHOULD! But if not, check the 1st comment for a link) but Jim Rohn takes journaling to a whole new level and teaches you how, too: LINK

Darren Hardy Weekend Challenge: Only you are responsible for your success or failure, happiness or sadness, stress or vitality, scarcity or abundance, appreciation or depression. You choose what you experience. And you choose by what you give attention to, what you think about, what you talk about and what you do or don’t do about it. CHOOSE something great for yourself this weekend! LINK

Darren Hardy Daily Mojo: "When a goal matters enough to a person, that person will find a way to accomplish what at first seemed impossible." -Nido Qubein *Do your goals matter? PROVE it TODAY! LINK

Darren Hardy Goal: See more sunsets. #57 YTD. From our balcony at The Grand Hotel Tremezzo overlooking Bellagio in Lake Como, Italy. One of my top 3 places on the planet! SPECTACULAR is an understatement!! LINK

Darren Hardy What is YOUR definition of success? We are certainly past the Gordon Gekko era that espoused greed as good. No, so success is not ONLY about creating financial abundance and stewarding a thriving business, it is also about the abundance and depth of your relationships, your health and well being and also, your contribution – what you are doing to make a positive difference to the people and world around you? LINK

Darren Hardy Daily Mojo: "No one limits your growth but you. If you want to earn more, learn more." -Tom Hopkins *How will you invest in YOU today? LINK

Darren Hardy During one research study, more than 50% of helpers reported feeling “high” when they helped others, 43% even felt stronger & more energetic & an astonishing 13% even experienced fewer aches & pains. A 50-year study concludes that giving, focus on making a difference outside of yourself, has a direct impact on our neurological, hormonal & immune systems – short & long term. Did you receive your “helpers high” today? LINK

Darren Hardy No matter what examples or warnings people are given, most don’t learn the lesson until they are knocked flat on their back by it. A woman gets diagnosed with bronchial cancer before she stop smoking. A man gets a divorce before he realizes he’s been an inconsiderate jerk for the past decade. A woman goes bankrupt before cutting up her credit cards. What lessons have you learned from the smack of hitting bottom? LINK

Darren Hardy Goal: See more sunsets. #36 YTD. Sun setting off Duomo di Milano in Italy - fantastico! Cathedral took 6 centuries to build (1386-1965). I can at least take 30 minutes to watch the sun fall across it's face - scioccante, magnifico, multo bello! LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." -Leo F. Buscaglia *How will you change someone's life today? LINK

Darren HardyAre you struggling with a certain area, person, or circumstance in your life? Here's quick tip for you: Start journalling all the aspects of THAT situation you are grateful for. Keep a record of everything that reinforces & expands your gratitude in that area. (And don't forget to check out the chapter titled "Choices" in The Compound Effect for more insights.) LINK

Darren Hardy Goal: See more sunsets. #33 YTD. A great time to quiet the mind and appreciate the beauty of life. LINK

Darren Hardy Happiness is not derived from the outside, but from within. It is a state of mind & you can continually CHOOSE to be happy. The best way I know to live in happiness-live in GRATITUDE. When you focus on all you have & all that you are, right now, that is where happiness is born. Once it is born now you can nurture it further by discovering those other experiences that bring you increased joy, happiness & exhilaration. LINK

In "Poke the Box", Seth Godin explains that you can’t let fear of failure or rejection keep you taking action on ideas. This book is short, fast-paced & to the point, providing even more proof that it’s time to get out there & GO FAIL BIG! So, what’s stopping you? LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: Don't be afraid to put yourself out there this week! Remember: "Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly" -Robert Kennedy LINK

Darren Hardy Fear keeps people from taking action & moving forward. Their mind invents a thousand excuses to why they are not “ready”. I’ll start on Monday. I need to organize my list.

Darren Hardy If your vocation is better than vacation, you have found your true passion in life. There are many times, okay, MOST of the time I would rather be working, improving, championing my crusade, than laying on a beach, watching a sporting event or playing golf. Some call it a bit sick, I call it passion… I call it the juice of life! I LOVE it & that’s what also pushes me to reach for mastery as well. What’s your passion? LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Optimists are right. So are pessimists. It's up to you to choose which you will be." -Harvey Mackay *The choice is yours today and EVERY DAY! LINK

Darren Hardy Book Club: Don’t let fear of the future or worrying about your circumstances keep you from following your dreams! Conquer your worries for a more successful & fulfilling life with this step-by-step guide by Dale Carnegie. "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living" will teach you how to crowd worry out of your mind, prepare to accept the worst & even forget your own unhappiness by helping others. Check it out: LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal." -Albert Pine *What are you doing for others today? LINK

Darren Hardy We are all intuitive & sensitive beings. We can sense authenticity & we can sense when it isn’t present. Projecting pretense only pushes people away from you--quickly & regularly. Your real self--the one that isn’t king of the hill, has fears, is concerned about family & has a genuine passion for a product, service or helping other people succeed--is far more attractive than anything else. Always be your REAL self! LINK

Darren Hardy Goal: See more sunsets. #30 YTD. Champaign wishes on the beach. It was a good day! LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: I'm trying to heed the advice of my mentor Jim Rohn as I write out this FAT tax check (Yowsa!!): "It's for the care and feeding of the goose that lays the golden eggs." Problem is, the goose eats too damn much! ;) LINK

Darren Hardy With tax day upon us, I'd like you to alter your mindset about this all-important force in our lives, now formerly known as money. Take this five letter word: M-O-N-E-Y & cross it out. Now replace each letter with these five: V-A-L-U-E. Stop thinking about money as money & start understanding it as value. That is all money is, paper that denotes value. How do you get more money? Create more value. Period. That’s it. LINK

Darren Hardy If you have people in your life who stifle creative flow, are quick to explain why something won’t work, remove them from the discussion. If it is your spouse, then innovate on your own. Prove your theories in your private test laboratory before sending out your press release. There will be plenty of time to shoot holes in new ideas, but they need fertile ground to germinate… soil that is not saturated with toxins. LINK

Darren Hardy It's Earth Day today! Wanna clean-up the earth? Here's how: “Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe LINK

@KeithKatsoulis just heard Mari Smith interview on ride into work. So GOOD I will listen to it on ride home.

@motivationbytdm ur interview w/Shawn Achor was AWESOME. Every cd and mag u put out is informitive.

@Nunn23 You did a great job presenting in Charlotte NC, at the ACN convention. I will be one of those 10,000,000 new Millionaire's

@StephenWelton its your giving philosophy that has inspired more than just us Mr. Hardy. #ThankYou For being the #Leader

@rhemashernandez I discovered Success Mag & TCE about 6 mos ago, so I'd say you do! U make me feel like ur just talking 2 me!

@condobrothers #thecompoundeffect has changed the way the Condo Brothers work. In only 4 months the exponential growth has begun. @UnfitDemosthene Thk u @DARRENHARDY helping me become a better me, & thk u

@stuntman757 for loaning me TheCompoundEffect @robbalucas "Where ur attention goes, energy flows. & so goes ur life." Seeing that nugget from #TheCompoundEffect in whole NEW light.

Great post Darren. When I read this, all I could do was laugh because we are all so guilty of doing this. Due to the technological advances in communication we have touched base with people instead of truly touching them. Great job in explaining the two differences. I look forward to May’s issue.

Darren, thanks for your blog, The Compound Effect, and your inspiring talk at our ACN event in Charlotte...The success is sure to follow. Thanks again for all the information you and Success magazine contribute. I have been reading and listening for a year now, and it has made a huge difference!

David Vogelsang
I’ve been subscribing to and reading my Success Magazines from cover to cover since Jan 2010 and the great information never seems to stop flowing. The May CD was awesome and I love the topic of Connecting vs. Communicating. I’ve been blogging and Tweeting for a little over a year now and I find these resources to be extremely helpful. I’m definitely going to use them to “Connect” better with my audience. Thank you so much for compiling them all for us!

Bob Coderre
Darren, I want to take a moment and tell you what happened to me over the last six months. I first learned of you in September 2010 when I attended my first national ACN training in Charlotte. You interviewed Mr. Trump and me and my 65 year old dad were very impressed. I signed up for the business assistant and started to receive Success magazine monthly and I love the audios. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to bring my 17 year old son to charlotte agin in february so he could hear you. Just finished the compound effect and wanted to let you know I an starting to take action! Very excited. Hope to be able to keep you updated on my progress and I really appreciate all you have done for me and my family. Thank you!

Hec Salgado
Hi Darren, cracking article! Fully agree about engaging with the audience. Really loved your presentation last March in Barcelona, the flow, delivery, entonation etc, etc – it shows you are so familiar with the process; mind you you missed the fly bit!!! Received your compound effect CDs and are really enjoying them – I have some serious homework ahead though! Keep up the good work !!

Nancy Marshall
You have opened my eyes to a different perspective on difficulties and obstacles. Thank you, I know this will help me to build my businesses even faster.

Ian Kirk
I would have to say the my subscription to Success Magazine has made my presentation skill go through the roof. Knowing the stories of other super achievers and being able to relate their stories to the audience is the formula to captivating them and to get them to internalize what you are trying to convey to them. I have also seen a steady diet of Success Magazine do the same for others. I have seen it take a team member of mine from never wanting to speak in front of a room, to him speaking in front of 25,000 people. I don’t know if the common readers of Success or the public in general really grasp how powerful listening to the audio CD can be in there “idle” time, like working out with head phones on or driving in the car. If you want to be the best you need to learn from the best. Of coarse if you want more you need to become more – Jim Rohn – I have found no better way in my own personal experience then to listen to the best of the best that Darren puts together every month on the CD inside Success Magazine. Remember Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. Make a habit of listening to something that will get you where you want to go, and do it today.

Michael Wilson The last thing I ever wanted to do was public speaking even though I am a sales manager. But after getting a subscription to Success Magazine and hearing all of the Great speakers on the success cd, I feel armed with all of the weapons and tools needed to shine on stage. It has given me a confidence never felt before and I am more than eager to take chances and use my newfound skills.

Miguel Ducasse believe it or not this christmas was a very tuff year for me and success magazine subscription was my christmas gift from my girl friend to me......... she has know idea the magic that these articles contain.... I still remember the look in her face and her response to me......;that's it that's all you wan! lol.........priceless

Jonathan Burneo Hey Darren, this month's issue is great! Especially the audio cd, also a member of the All Access Pass. Really helpful insights... Networking with New Media by Jill Becker really stood out for me, as well the audio on networking with Larry Benet and Joe Sweeny. Also Peter Gruber's interview and your talk at ACN's Charlotte International Event on the All Access Pass. Really enjoyed that one.

Keith Lawrence Kelly Darren, I want to thank you sincerely for all you have done in my life. You are my first personal development mentor (after my father) and because of you I have gotten to learn from so many others. I got to hear you speak in Charlotte and have read all your books! They have made a monumental difference in my life and business. Now every day when I wake up, I choose to do things that inspire people, surround myself with people that inspire me, do something with the gifts God has given me and make a difference in others lives. I live an inspired life.

Mark Storozyszyn I love Success magazine. Those CD's are awesome too.

Al Smith Love the Ketch-up Post. So much awesome material. Can't wait for next month SUCCESS magazine and CD. The Best !!

Shavana Shivprasad Darren, I am almost finish with the Compound Effect. I can't say enough great things. This book has really changed the way I look at what really makes a person successful. I hope to share some success stories of my own with you someday soon. Thanks!!

Deborah M. Brolley You are GOOD, that is why you are so successful. I love your magazine, and been a reader of Success for a long, long time. Love it

Kira Kamamalu Lee Darren! Thanks so much for the talk at success summit. You were so helpful to all of us! You serve so many- you are greatly appreciated.

Darryl Santell I just got my magazine this month and already listened to audio-cd included. I thought alot of Mari Smith's advise on getting quality communication through the social networks.

Deborah M. Brolley Darren, you are walking the walk, and not talking the talk. Appreciate you so much. Thank you, Deb

Jan Walker I'm starting right now. I am feeling so motivated by the beauty and inspiration of what you share with us.

Darryl Santell Success is the best, as an entrepreneur I've learned so much. I'm working on a book myself and eventually would like to be interviewed and in magazine.

Damon Eddy If you are not subscribed to Success magazine your are making a big mistake. This is a must read and no I am not on the staff or getting paid to say so. . . . It is just incredibly good.

Jennis Swainston Thank you for SUCCESS. I enjoy learning from those featured in it! :)

Karen Soto Thank You for all the hard work and passion that you share in every issue of SUCCESS. I have given up the fashion and home improvement magazines and now get excited when I find the next issue of SUCCESS Magazine!

Robert Joseph Peavey Darren....Really enjoyed the first track on the latest CD with Peter Guber...I am motivated to hone my storytelling skills! Thank you for all that you do

John Hopper I do believe you might have produced the best issue of Success magazine I've ever read. Congratulations, this issues has went above and beyond. It's like every story could've been the cover but they couldn't have been the cover because you put Zuckerberg on the cover. Job well done. It doesn't get much better than this!!!

Fearless Omama Y. Marzuq Thank You Thank You Thank You!! This Month's issue of Success Magazine was perfect and exactly what I needed to hear. Success is amazing and it keeps getting better and better. One of the best interviews I have heard. Thank You for helping me grow, my business grow, so I can grow with my clients!! You're the Best Darren! May God keep blessing you and your happy!!!

Janet Cook Hi Darren - LOVED your article in Success..Are You Connecting or Just Communicating? I re-posted on my social media sites. IMPORTANT stuff.

Eric L. Carlson Darren, I'm TOTALLY loving the latest CD from SUCCESS Magazine!!! (Every month the CD blows me away with great content-Thank you, THANK YOU!) My current focus is to build my fan pages, and this is incredible and valuable information! There are so many talented musicians and other artist-types who stagnate with 50, 100, or 200 fans for more than a year or two which is ridiculously insane! My goal: 10,000 + fans by July 1, 2011! All the best - NYC Healthy Chick

Al Smith SUCCESS mag for May is Incredible ! Mark Zuckerberg, Peter Guber, Mari Smith and Connecting, Networking and Story telling. CD is great, too. A must read for everyone ! Thanks Darren.

Julie Voris Always love the content from Darren Hardy and SUCCESS Magazine...great great stuff!

Sandy Hennen Ecklund Looks like a great read! On the topic of great reads Darren, The Compound Effect has become one of my favorites - got the tracking to show for it and excited for a year of possibilities - thank you!

Carol A Egan No one can sincerely create success, without sincerely creating self-love for themselves... What a powerful example you have been for me in creating success in all ways, Darren!

Darren Ritch Darren, thanks for all your inspiring messages! You inspire me! Hope to pass it along to others!

Julie Voris Darren Hardy, I swear the stuff that you write, speak about, and publish is like GOLD...such invaluable nuggets of wisdom...I find myself constantly printing off the articles, dog-earing Success mag articles, and highlighting quotes from you...Thanks for the constant inspiration...

Ancel D Maloney thank you for your book sir. If only the WORLD can appreciate the power of the compund effect! my world is slowly coming under my control because i can anticipate what happens in 3 mths based on stuff i do in the next 3 mins. Keep changing lives sir!

Bobby O. Perea Darren, I got the text about The Compound Effect- just a second ago. I have been listening to the audio book for the past 3 months, in addition to the audio CDs in Success Magazine. It has changed my life and in turn the lessons are changing the life of my patients! Thank you!

Maryam Safavi Mr. Darren Hardy, your success magazine is phenomenal !!! PRICELESS !!!! Thank you for all you do.

Nick Baktijarevic Hi Darren, Success Magazine is the best thing that happened since Think and grow rich. I love listening to the audio CD's while i move around it has such a big impact in my life, your doing a GREAT job Darren. Your interview with Brian Tracey back in November changed my life, i listen to it over and over, this is the 1st time i discovered Success Magazine and ever since then i did NOT look back.

Nick Baktijarevic Thank you Darren, 1st time i heard your Audio Success CD's i said to myself i have to let this Gentleman know what wonderful work he is doing but how will i do that ? i guess whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve. So Thank you again for the Fantastic work you are doing.

Clare Turner Marshall I have now read the compound effect and I am currently listening to the CD's in my car. I have to say you have changed my whole attitude! The compound effect has helped me realise where I have been going wrong for so many years! I have also invested in some Jim Rohn material, he is a great guy. I am now on day 14 of the new me and I am loving it!!!!! Here's to keeping the Big-Mo going.......THANK YOU.........:D

Vincent Frankie Mante Hi Darren, my 10 stacker cd sound system is completely decked out with Success interviews and lately I've been utilizing your concept of "working the skill of focus much the same as you would work a bicep". Two 45minute power sessions with a count down timer has worked wonders with completing my essays for uni. Its also greatly reduced my tendency to procrastinate. Great stuff Darren, can't thank you enough for your work!

Austin Ashrafi Wow, you've nailed me on my sofa due to your speech on ACN March "All Access Pass" DVD. I mean that was truly fantastic and opened a new eye for me as someone who loves ACN and Success Magazine. In fact, I cannot wait for Success Magazine & ACN All Access Pass DVD to hit my mailbox!!! All the best Darren.

Scott Sileo Just started reading The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. It may end up being the best $9.99 I've spent in a long time.

Angela Loehr Chrysler The Wednesday Leadership call was terrific with Darren Hardy. He shared valuable insight regarding our industry and essential attributes of leadership. It will be available online asap and you will want to listen, take notes and share! Thank you Darren for sharing with us.

Stacy Stiffler Ray Thank you so much for your information on the Team National Leadership call this morning. It was fantastic hearing your insightful nuggets on leadership. Also, I have been receiving your magazine SUCCESS for a few months and have to tell you I enjoy each issue and appreciate all the different aspects of "Business" that you cover. Finally, the CD's in the magazine are priceless! I constantly listen to them!! Good Luck to YOU and ALL of your Endeavors!

Cynthia Yontz Listened to her interview on my CD enclosed in my magazine. Excellent information Mari.....Congratulations!!!!! Love your publication one out there as far as I'm concerned.

Elizabeth Waruru Darren, as always you've nailed it yet again. I too have listened to this CD over and over again in the last couple of days, in my car, on my i-pod. Your publication is the only one I read cover to cover. Thank you and God bless you more and more.

Houda Chaouih I'm French, and my english is not so good.. But i hope i'll be understood, when I say that you are part of the person who most inspire me. Thanks a lot for your talk at the International Convention of Barcelona, this changed me in the greatest way possible.

Christopher Cole Your an AMAZING Person and I am blessed to have seen you speak live in ATL for the Visalus event!! :)

Marisa Nardozza Parker Darren-just listened 2 ur speech today on in my car from that event-so inspiring..I could listen to it over and over

Pam Shane-Dunwald Thanks Darren. Since I have started the program Living Your Best Year Ever I am focused, developing great habits, losing weight, and more confident ever in moving my TN business forward. Thanks for the great call for us last Wednesday.

Michele Leohner You are THE man Darren....Congrats and good luck! Proud of you and your hard work, leadership, support and encouragement!! Thank you :-)

Darren Hardy I love this from my interview with Joel Osteen: Our partners usually fulfill only about 80% of our needs. Most people, however, focus on the 20% that’s missing. Thus, ultimately becoming unhappy & unfulfilled. The key is to focus on the 80% of what is wonderful & beautiful. Your positive perspective will change how you appreciate, interact & support your partner, thus garnering a much different response & engagement. LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Be prepared to ride the cycles and trends of life; success is never permanent and failure is never final." -Brian Tracy LINK

Darren Hardy It's time to WAKE UP & realize that the habits you indulge in could be compounding your life into repeated disaster. The slightest adjustments to your daily routines can dramatically alter the outcomes in your life. Again, I'm not talking about quantum leaps of change or a complete overhaul of your personality, character & life. Super small, seemingly inconsequential adjustments can & will revolutionize everything. LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want." -Jim Rohn *Are you truly happy with what you have? LINK

Darren Hardy Book Club: Which comes first: happiness or success? Is it possible to be happy & not necessarily successful? The answer just might shock you. Shawn Achor tackles this question in his book "The Happiness Advantage" & teaches you how to train your brain to use positive thinking to become more fulfilled & successful. You should test his happiness-first theory for yourself though, it may be your path to greater success! LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them." -Jim Rohn *How are your 2011 goals progressing? LINK

Darren Hardy We can only operate at intense peak-performance focus for 90 mins at a time without starting to flat line mentally & creatively. My tip: use a countdown clock. Set it for 45 mins & turn everything else off & just focus on a single project. At the 45 min mark get up, move around for 3-5 mins & then set a second 45 min countdown. You will be amazed how creative, focused & productive you can be in a short 90 min sprint. LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." -Ralph Waldo Emerson *Be a true leader; don't forget to leave the trail! LINK

Darren Hardy Many people confuse being a manager with being a leader. By definition: A manager is one who gets others to do what they want them to do while a leader is one who gets others to WANT to do what they want them to do. Managers use authority, fear & punishment as their tools but leaders use empowerment, servitude & inspiration as theirs. It’s easy to manage, but it takes real skill & character to lead. Which are you? LINK

Darren Hardy Fun interview (wrangling) of The Donald (Trump) on stage in front of 12,500 beautiful ACN friends in Barcelona, Spain this morning. All ways good times with Mr. T! LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: Are you committed to your goals this week? Why you should be: "There are only two options regarding commitment; you're either in or you're out. There's no such thing as life in-between." -Pat Riley LINK

Darren Hardy Just WOW’ed again by the excellent Social Media Boot Camp For CEOs program. Still time to catch it in SD: LINK

Darren Hardy Goal: See more sunsets. #26 YTD. Cheers! To the finish of another glorious week. And... may the party begin! LINK

Darren Hardy Do you want to think differently? Well, if the answer is "YES!" (& it should be!) you have to constantly and continually feed your mind the thoughts, ideas & inspiration it needs to help you achieve your ambitious goals. Your mind needs a regular diet of nutrient-rich food--“bread for the head,” as Jim Rohn called it. Be vigilant about what you expose yourself to & remember: What you think about, you create! LINK

Darren Hardy Don’t buy into the genie in a lamp, sit on your couch & wait to attract the checks in your mailbox, rub crystals, channel a 2000-year-old guru, chant affirmations, ad nauseam “secret” to success.

Darren Hardy There is nothing more damaging to your future potential than spending your present dwelling on the past. Whatever has happened is over.

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you." -Dale Carnegie *One great way to do this: just LISTEN! LINK

Darren Hardy Stop letting other people influence your attitude, your hope for the future & your potential to do something great. Whoever or whatever is controlling your mind is also controlling your LIFE. It’s time to take back control of your mind & live on your terms with your values, your standards & your decisions about the world. This is the only way to live a free, abundant, peaceful & joyful life! LINK

Darren Hardy Most people are only after getting… and they wonder why they don’t. Look for ways to contribute, provide, help, offer and assist. This goes back to the golden rule of relationships that Zig Ziglar taught us, “You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Give first, give often and give last. Give, give and give! LINK

Darren Hardy Don't postpone your happiness. I call this the “when I (fill in the blank), I will be happy” syndrome. The reality is happiness isn’t something to be acquired in the future. You are either happy now or not; “then” never arrives. Living & striving for “then” results in a constant state of unhappiness. If you can’t be happy now, you most certainly will not be happy later. NOW is the only time you have to be happy! LINK

Darren Hardy You’ve probably heard the definition of insanity--doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. You’re not insane are you? If you want this year to be different than the last year, then now is the time to do something different. Now is the time to hit the reset button to your life! What will you do differently RIGHT NOW to make 2011 your best year ever? LINK

Darren Hardy Weekend Challenge: Don't spend your life trying to make other people happy. Many times we are living a life we didn’t even choose ourselves. We might have simply, & unconsciously, started pursing the idea of happiness programmed by our parents, peers, societal culture, or the examples given to us by Hollywood or commercialism. Make sure you are living out YOUR idea of success, not someone else's! LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude." -Thomas Jefferson *Which will you choose to be today? LINK

Darren Hardy Morning Motivation: "Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want." -Jim Rohn *No matter what your current circumstances are: Choose to have a great weekend! LINK

Darren Hardy If you want to know what someone really values most, simply look at their calendar & their checkbook. How a person spends their time & money reveals what they really value most. We say our family & relationships are most important, but our values are demonstrated not by our words, but by our deeds. Check yourself: What is the most important thing in your life? Are you actually living that way? LINK

Darren Hardy "Character is made up of small, everyday decisions as well as larger prevailing traits, such as respect, humility and responsibility." -Vince Lombardi *Make sure you are practicing ALL of these traits daily! LINK

Darren Hardy It’s time to take back control of your mind so you can take back your life! Stop letting others influence your attitude, hope for the future & potential to do something great. The only way to live a free, abundant, peaceful & joyful life is to live on your terms with your values, your standards & your decisions about the world. Tell us, what have you given up control over & how you can start getting it back TODAY?: LINK

Darren Hardy “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.” -Helen Keller *What is your grandest vision for yourself? LINK

Darren Hardy What you have accomplished so far is only a fraction of what’s truly possible for you. You are far more powerful, capable & gifted than you allow yourself to be. The only thing separating you from your grandest vision of your life is COURAGE! If you don’t want the next 10 years to be like the last, then now is the time to do something different. Muster the courage to declare that right NOW is your turning point! LINK

Darren Hardy Book Club: For a recent SUCCESS Book Summaries, I reviewed Jack Canfield’s "The Success Principles" & had to share it with you all here. If you’re struggling with fear, excuses, or simply an inability to see beyond the next hurdle, Jack’s book will give you the courage to act on the principles of success by demonstrating how you can use these fundamental strategies to achieve your goals, whatever they may be, today! LINK

Darren Hardy I am always supremely impressed when I witness someone turn down the opportunity to talk negatively about someone else, even if it would have been only to agree with the one speaking or join the company of misery talk. Let your reputation & brand become those of positivity, grace & class. These rare qualities are what people look for in others. Always be the standout! LINK
