In my recent interview with author Susan David, we had the opportunity to speak about her new book entitled ” Emotional Agility-Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life.”   The premise behind Susan work is that if people can learn the techniques of emotional agility, they can master the challenges in life that frequently derail them and create depression and despair.

It is all about navigating our inner world which consists of the negative self-talk, our thoughts, feelings and the habitual patterns that we create in our life that do not serve us from releasing our emotional baggage.  Emotional Agility is an innovative approach to navigating life’s twist and turns with insight and accordingly to our values, rather than our knee-jerk “hooks” in which our thoughts, emotions, and stories drive our behavior.

In my interview with author Michael Alden, he states that most self-help program don’t have the anticipated impact on people’s lives that they expect.  The reason is that in his estimation people reach too high, then don’t achieve their goals and become disappointed.

Simply stated Michael says to just do 5% More in every area of your life and you will achieve your goals.  This technique is not new, but Michael is absolutely one-hundred percent correct– if we just complete the incremental short term goals our larger goals and vision will manifest.  Do they always manifest that we envision, no but we do  make progress toward our goals and dreams–you bet.

In my interview with this dynamic author that has reached the pinnacle of success, we discuss his challenging youth being brought up in the housing projects, having a mother as a drug addict, and loosing other members of his family to drugs.  Mike has seen it all, and as a result decided to take an alternative path, he became a lawyer then started a very successful marketing company called Blue Vase which sells millions of dollars of health related products through infomercials.

If you are on a quest to improve your batting average relative your goals in life then I would highly recommend that you read and study the techniques that Mike talks about in his new book 5% More.  If you want to learn more about Mike and his book 5% More, please click here to be directed to the book website.

You can also connect with Mike through his Facebook page, or watch a great video on YouTube.

I hope you enjoy my interview with author Michael Alden about reaching and achieving your goals.


I have conducted several interviews with Don Green the executive director of the Napoleon Hill foundation.  Recently I had the pleasure of speaking with Don about “Napoleon Hill’s Daily Journal for Everyday Men“.  Just so the women are aware this journal comes in a version for women as well.

I know that journaling can be challenging to sustain.  We frequently get off to a good start but lack the motivation to continue the process.  The Napoleon Hill Journal is perfect for keeping the journaler engaged.  The journal is like a goal planner to keep you on track.  What I love about it is that it starts off with the most important element of our personal growth, and that is our definiteness of purpose, and follows a very logical sequence process throughout the year with 12 separate topics for each month of the year.

This journal has an accompanying inspiration book entitled “Napoleon Hill’s Daily Inspiration for Everyday Man” This book takes you through the 17 success principles and is a wonderful compliment to the journal.  I highly recommend obtaining both the journal and the inspirational guide.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with Don Green the executive director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.


Intentionally is a how we all strive to live our lives. The question is how frequently do we live a life focused on our intention?

In my recent interview with Mallika Chopra we discuss her new book entitled ” Living with Intent“.  Even the daughter of Deepka Chopra had her own messy journey to purpose, peace and joy.  As he points out in our interview she struggled managing a business, motherhood and balancing between all of the demand on her life.   Mallika was taught at a very young age growing up in her home to set intentions and have a daily practice of meditation, but like all of us she got off track and had to take a strong look at how she was living her life.

How many of you set intentions daily before your feet hit the ground?  How many of you give gratitude for all that you have daily?  Just these two practices can have a significant impact on your happiness, joy and fulfillment in life.  Millika has an acronym for “INTENT”.  “I” stand for Incubate, “N” for Notice, “T” for Trust, “E’ is for Express, “N” is for Nuture, “T” is for Take.  Intention are expressions of who we aspire to be as individuals-physically, emotionally, spiritually as members of our families and communities.

If you are looking to live your life with more intentionally, peace, joy and happiness then I recommend that you listen to this wonderful interview with Millika Chopra about her new book “Living with Intent“.

Personal Growth can get overdone, and many of the books begin to sound the same. Similar advice, tips, to-do’s which unless applied do absolutely nothing to forward our personal transformation— whatever that is suppose to mean.

In my recent interview with Tom Oliver, about his book entitled ” Nothing is Impossible” Tom does not follow suit like the thousands of other “personal growth/mastery” books. Tom’s book is engaging, loaded with great stories, pointers and exercises that are quite valuable. Tom speaks to the reader, not at them and is gentle in his advice and guidance to attain personal mastery—should that be your desire.

Our interview covers several topics, but a couple of them I believe are so important are “Embracing Yourself” and “Overcoming Self-Doubt”. Please listen carefully to Tom words so you can understand the importance of learning how to understand yourself and focus on your strengths, not improving your weaknesses.

Also the power of removing any self-doubt that you may have allowed to creep into your subconscious. It can be a real challenge to lift yourself up, and start believing in yourself again. Defeat and failure, are just signs you are on the right path. Challenges will always be part of life, but remembering who we are and why we are here on this planet is the power to move us through all of our challenges.
