How Can I Better Myself? Take Control

Posted by Rick Carter on Monday, July 30, 2012, In : how can I better myself 

 Pain is outside events and people controlling your actions.  For some people, that’s not painful, but somewhat pleasant.  Not making decision, not living with the consequences of their actions.  Some people seek this out.  You do not.  You strive to answer the question “how can I better myself?”  One answer, for you, is to have your input into these external events.


You will never control all of the external actions that affect you, because we live in a society that requires a certai...

Leadership Characteristics: Set Goals

Posted by Rick Carter on Sunday, July 29, 2012, In : leadership characteristics 
The popular image is that of the hard charging leader, making it up as he goes along.  Every decision is from the gut, and every decision is correct.  The reality is that real leaders actually have a plan, with a backup plan and then an alternate plan.  Plans are built around goals.  And goals are set by leaders before the plan gets laid.

One of the key leadership characteristics is not only to set goals, but to have all the members of his or her team participate.   The old way of leadership w...

How Can I Better Myself? Control Energy

Posted by Rick Carter on Thursday, July 19, 2012, In : how can I better myself 

I told my daughter once that the secret to success is to focus and to finish.   Most people know this.  But too many people simply don’t have the energy to actually do this.  Pain is simply gassing out or losing focus because you just don’t have the energy to stay on task.  Few people equate "how can I better myself?" with managing your energy.  Focus and finish equals success. Wanting to focus and finish equals mediocrity.

Energy is not the rush you get by throwing lighter fluid on char...

How Can I Better Myself? Get Fit

Posted by Rick Carter on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, In : how can I better myself 

Pain is that being out of shape is painful.  If you don’t believe me, try this experiment.  Pick something off the floor and put it on the shelf above your head.  If you can do this without any discomfort, twisting or grunting, then congratulations.   You are not out of shape.  Yet.  

The physical pain of being out of shape will come later, and it will be really painful.  The heart attack. The diabetes.   The pulled hamstring.  And there’s the pain right now.  The loss of breath when you...

How Can I Better Myself? Coach

Posted by Rick Carter on Monday, July 16, 2012, In : how can I better myself 

Someone said that time is nature’s way of making sure that everything doesn’t happen at the same time.  Unfortunately, some of us are impatient and want everything to happen right now.  But there is pain associated with this attitude. That pain is that you feel all the weight of every possible perspective on your shoulders, all at one time.  Having a coach to give you perspective on the question “how can I better myself?” is one of the best ways to avoid this pain.

The greatest athle...

How Can I Better Myself? Set Goals

Posted by Rick Carter on Saturday, July 14, 2012, In : how can I better myself 

Pain for you is drifting and wandering on someone else’s course.  Pain is letting other people determine not only what you will do, but exactly how you will do it.  This pain is personal to you.  You are probably baffled by seeing people around you accept this as the normal course of life.   For you, this is an abnormality that cannot be tolerated.  You can – and must – set your goals, along your own path to answering "how can I better myself?"

The goals you set individually do not hav...
