BEING YOUR PERSONAL BEST: MONTEL WILLIAMS

montel2-redTHE POWER OF CHOICE

At 3a.m., most people, even most highly successful people, are deep in sleep, resting for the next challenging day. Not Montel Williams. The Daytime Emmy-winning talk show host stays awake and alert late into the night, averaging only four hours of sleep. For him, maximizing every hour of every day is a necessity. He oversees five businesses, a charitable foundation and a new syndicated radio talk show, with plans for new ventures in the works. All of this while battling multiple sclerosis, a disease that keeps him in almost constant pain.

Williams admits he keeps busy to distract himself from health issues, but says the rush he gets from multitasking is what drives him. “I hate to say it like this, but I’m like a crack addict with [my companies],” he says. “I’m an information junkie.” Williams’ new radio show, Montel Across America, debuted on Air America Media in April. Stations have been adding his show ever since, helping thrust Williams back into the American consciousness, a fact that is essential to the viability of his other ventures. [Read Full Story Here!]

 GRATITUDE AS A BUSINESS STRATEGY

BY HOWgratitude-300x200ARD JACOBSON

Most of us are fantastic complainers. When someone doesn’t meet our expectations, we let them know. We may even let their boss or mother know.

There’s nothing wrong with expecting excellence, and taking steps to get it. The problem is, we tend to take excellence–and thoughtfulness, and kindness, and joyfulness–for granted.

When things go as we expect, we don’t even notice or acknowledge it. Dennis Prager refers to this as the “broken tile” syndrome: look at a ceiling with one broken tile, and where is your eye naturally drawn? To the broken tile, of course. Not to the hundreds of whole ones.

To see if this is true for you, think for a moment about your many contributions to the people around you. Do you get thanked enough for them? Does the gratitude-to-criticism ratio you experience feel right to you?

Gratitude Deficit Disorder: A Global Epidemic

Almost everyone I know, from pastors to parents, from cashiers to carpet cleaners, from architects to accountants, suffers from GDD: Gratitude Deficit Disorder. Despite all our good intentions and actions, we receive much more flak than gratitude. We are hungry for genuine appreciation and thanks. We want to know that we matter, that our efforts are making the world a better place.

73 BEST BUSINESS AND SUCCESS LESSONS

By Rsuccess-300x200obin Sharma |  RobinSharma.com 

I’m skiing in South America but have also been doing a lot of thinking. I wanted to thank you for all your kind support of my work. So I have summarized the 73 best ideas/insights/lessons I’ve learned for winning in business and life below. I hope they help you. And I hope you’ll share them with others who will benefit from them. Again, thanks for supporting my mission to help people in organizations around the world Lead Without a Title. I’m grateful.

  1. You can really Lead Without a Title.
  2. Knowing what to do and not doing it is the same as not knowing what to do.
  3. Give away what you most wish to receive.
  4. The antidote to stagnation is innovation.
  5. The conversations you are most resisting are the conversations you most need to be having.
  6. Leadership is no longer about position – but passion. It’s no longer about image but impact. This is Leadership 2.0.
  7. The bigger the dream, the more important to the team.
  8. Visionaries see the “impossible” as the inevitable.
  9. All great thinkers are initially ridiculed – and eventually revered.
  10. The more you worry about being applauded by others and making money, the less you’ll focus on doing the great work that will generate applause. And make you money.
