Chris Hogan wants us to understand one key fact: retirement has nothing to do with your age, it has everything to do with a financial number. So it’s not about 65, 62, 70, it’s more about how much money we’re going to need to be able to live the lifestyle we want to live in the future.

Chris Hogan says it’s important for all of us to understand the power of our dreams. We all have things we want to do, and it’s important to tap into them because dreams are a better motivator than fear. Fear will motivate you for a little while, but it doesn’t last. Why? Because it’s a negative ...

Your success might come down to a simple word…NO. Do you hear it enough? Do you realize the number of times you hear NO is directly related to how many times you hear YES?

Author Andrea Waltz talks about staying persistent in embracing and even pursuing “no.” Successful people fail eagerly while failures avoid failing. There seems to be a stigma about failure that makes us feel bad and even want to quit. We think, “I’m probably going to fail, so why even try?” That...

Author Andrea Waltz encourages us to track our failure rate. She wants us to be aware of how many times we get a “no,” and even set goals and celebrate how many times we will hear “no.” Tracking your frequency of “no” gives you an awareness of how you are doing and enables you to make adjustments...

Andrea Waltz encourages us to give ourselves permission to fail.

Sir John Hargrave says we have what he calls “loops,” or ongoing, habitual messages we tell ourselves. Usually, they’re just below the level of conscious awareness, embedded in our operating system.

There’s no end to the digital distractions that surround us. And research shows that the more distracted you are and the more you try to multitask, the less you get done. If you want to be effective and live up to your full potential, get rid of those distractions. Turn it all off and you’ll be m...

Studies show that meditation makes you healthier, makes your relationships better, and makes you calmer and more focused.
