Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Whether we realize it or not, most of us have a little extra time on our hands, but we fail to utilize it correctly. It is those special extra few minutes we have “in-between” our appointments, daily chores, and other responsibilities.

Tip: Love God, and have a friend at the bank!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

I have a very unique family background. My father was born in Kiev, Russia. He grew up in Richmond, Virginia, where his family settled. He was Jewish and a very good businessman. He owned several different businesses and spent a lot of time, effort, and energy making them work. For many years he ran a store in Atlanta, Georgia, called Regenstein’s, which was a ladies’ ready-to-wear clothing business. After Mr. Regenstein died, my father went into the jewelry business in Miami, Florida. That is where he and my mother went on their honeymoon! He started many of the evening auctions on Miami Beach that continue to this day. Finally, he started an antique business in Griffin, Georgia, and that is what he did for the balance of his life. He loved business and invested himself in the daily principles and habits that make a person financially successful.

Tip: There is a big difference between being tired and being exhausted!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Recently, I was talking to my mentor who is much older and wiser than me. I told him that I was exhausted from all the activity I had been involved in lately. A big smile came over his face as if he knew something that I did not know. When I questioned him, he said, “Actually, I think you are just tired, but I do not think you are exhausted.” I asked what he meant. He told me that he had discovered that being tired is actually a good thing. When you know how to do something and you work hard at it for a long period of time, you are going to get tired. That is a very normal, natural experience. Anyone who works hard doing something that they are gifted to do or have been trained to do will get tired working in their daily routine.

Tip: Keep your priorities straight!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

When I was growing up, I had a very difficult time staying focused. I have always said I have the attention span of a gnat! Sadly, it is still true to this day. The good news is that I am aware of it and am constantly working on it. Sometimes I have five or six ideas going on in my head at the same time. Rather than taking medication for my problem, I have simply tried to develop self-discipline and focus on one thought at a time.

Tip: Write thank you notes!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

When I was growing up, my mother and father placed a high premium on being grateful. They taught me that it cost absolutely nothing to show gratitude to someone who has done something for you. And, although it costs nothing to show appreciation to others, in the long run it pays rich dividends, not only in your own life, but also in the life of the person to whom you are expressing gratitude.

Tip: There is always something for which you can be thankful!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

As most of you know, here in the United States we are celebrating Thanksgiving this week. I realize that this Tip goes to many other countries where a holiday similar to Thanksgiving is celebrated at different times. Regardless of where you live and when you celebrate it, Thanksgiving is a good time to remember to be thankful and grateful for everything that you have in life. I have often been reminded that success in life has everything to do with an attitude of gratitude. When a person has a good attitude and a grateful heart, it seems to open doors of opportunity for them that would never be opened otherwise. Not many people who are bitter and ungrateful have prospered very much in their life.

Tip: Your past matters!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Every day we all have the opportunity for a brand-new start. That is nice. Everyone likes a fresh beginning. It is nice to have a new week every seven days. It is refreshing to start a new month every thirty days or so. I also find that there is nothing better than wiping the slate clean and starting fresh with a brand-new year. We have all had that experience many, many times!

Tip: Remember three simple keys to effective communication

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

A gentleman, who is a career military man, recently came through our Level 2 Advanced Training program. He shared with us the importance of communicating clearly, especially in an area as critical as the military. Our country, our safety, and, in large part, our future, depends upon it. We all owe a sizeable debt to the service men and women who do such an excellent job of protecting our country.

Tip: One of your biggest enemies is the lack of knowledge

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Have you ever been in a situation in which you found yourself completely frustrated…a place in which you did not know where to turn? Although I may not know the exact set of circumstances you may be recalling, I am sure of one thing; you lacked the knowledge you needed in order to take action. When faced with that sort of situation it is often possible to have the same feeling as when you encounter a dead-end street. The question becomes, “Now what do I do?!?”
