Dreams and desires act as the catalyst to our goal setting.

The year of the horse is your year to follow your desires.

year of the horseA discussion about desire has been around for centuries. Even back to ancient Greece when Aristotle suggested that desire alone cannot account for all movement towards a goal. He went on to say that reason, in conjunction with desire along with imagination, makes it possible for reason and desire work together to determine what is a good object of desire. He wrote that the soul is guided by two horses, a dark horse of passion and a white horse of reason. Then Socrates comes along and does not suggest the dark horse be done away with. This is important, he said that passions make possible a movement towards the objects of desire. Passion moves us to achieve the result of our desires. He went on to teach that desire must be placed in relation to reason so that the object of desire can be identified correctly. That way we know that we have the right desire. The reason for your passion must ring true. Once we know the essence of our desire we must ignite that desire with a burning passion.

What is it you desire so much you can taste it? Is the thing you desire balanced with reason? Does this mission mean everything to you so that you can create the passion needed to carry you across the finish line? Of course, you have a strong purpose in you. We all do. Want to discover what great mission may be waiting deep in your subconscious?

What problems are stopping you?

Can your perception of problems prevent you from accomplishing your purpose?  Or, do you see the next setback as an opportunity?

In this episode we’ll explore a new way to think about problems. Can your perception of problems prevent you from accomplishing your purpose? Or, do you see the next setback as an opportunity?

Bad News. Better Ideas.

The way all of us face problems starts with the thought, “This is a problem.” Or, “That can’t be good.”

HALF FULL EDIT CRISISIt doesn’t matter what the problem is. Some as simple as the electricity goes off. The outside influence of sitting an the dark and losing all the stuff you just entered in your spreadsheet is real enough. But, being in the dark really isn’t that bad without your opinion popping up in your mind, “This is bad.”

In the book, This is Earl Nightingale, there’s a quote about problems from professor Robert Seashore of NorthwesternUniversity. Earl writes the quote, “The happiest people are not the people without problems; they are the people who know how to solve their problems.”

Cool quote, but how do you do it? Earl wrote out a six step action plan you can use when faced with problems more serious than sitting in the dark waiting for the lights to come back on. Here are the steps:

1.) Define your problem on paper.

2.) List the obstacles in your way of solving the problem

3.) List people or idea sources than can help you.

4.) List as many possible actions you can choose to fix it.

5.) Visualize the results of each action.

6.) Choose the very best course of action and do it.

Mistakes Send Mixed Messages

We live in a time that the thought of failure is all around us. Massive unemployment charges the daily news with the “What if” fears. “What if I get fired?” “What is I can’t make a mortgage payment?”

The state of fear is a fertile ground for failure to grow – but failure only grows in our mind. It is the quiet subconscious thoughts that only exist in our minds that present all the reasons and excuses to fail.

Of course losing a job or home is a very real possibility. You can’t just treat those events with a false sense of reality. We can’t all just jump up, smile, and in some phony cheerleader motivational moment say, “Hallelujah I’ve got a problem!”

However, even the worst setback also comes loaded with opportunity. There’s a lot of valuable lessons in this episode of My Power Podcast. Personal development is not about smiling in the mirror and hoping for things to get better. Personal development is about handing real problems. The experience of handling a problem prepares you for unlimited possibilities.

What does Positive Self Expectancy have to do with you getting what you want?

Have you set powerful goals and are acting on them daily?

In this episode we’ve lined up authors with topics that relate to setting and achieving goals. First we’ll hear from Denis Waitley to learn how to enjoy the excitement of your big dreams. Next, Brian Tracy poses a question to get you thinking about what you really want.  Zig Ziglar says on goals, “You can not be a wandering generality, you must be a meaningful specific.”  In addition to Denis, Brian and Zig, you’ll hear advice form Joe Vitale, David Allen, Larry Winget, and Jim Rohn.

Is Self Help For You? 


The term “Self Help” has been around a long time and has many different names and labels. Whatever term you reference from New Thought to Self Help, the concept of personal development is essential as a unique part of being human. All other life forms only rise to the level of necessity. We in turn, look to a higher calling, and we answer. It’s centuries old and hard wired into our DNA to become better. As far as labeling our journey, you can trace self help back to a guy named Samuel Smiles (1812 – 1904). He  was a Scottish author, reformer, and author of what some have called the first self-help book simply titled, Self Help.Smiles_Samuel_black_white

He is known to have said, “I would not have any one here think that, because I have mentioned individuals who have raised themselves by self-education from poverty to social eminence, and even wealth, these are the chief marks to be aimed at. That would be a great fallacy. Knowledge is of itself one of the highest enjoyments. The ignorant man passes through the world dead to all pleasures, save those of the senses…Every human being has a great mission to perform, noble faculties to cultivate, a vast destiny to accomplish.”

Self education is easier today than ever before.  My Power Podcast service is one new tool to help you cultivate that destiny you are uniquely meant to achieve.

The topic of Goals is our first theme for the premiere podcast. In coming weeks, you’ll hear themes based on starting a business, does positive thinking work, action steps to succeed, and many more themes to be addressed in each new podcast.
