A few months ago, I got an email from a young lady who said she was unhappy with her life and that she wanted to be more successful, yet she didn’t feel that she deserved to be successful. She felt that in order to be successful, she must struggle and suffer.

This young lady has been hypnotized into believing that others deserve success, but she doesn’t. In fact, she stated that success, wealth and prosperity runs counter to her religious and spiritual teachings.

Let me tell you why thinking this way is a “sin,” and by “sin,” I mean its original definition, which is an error or “missing the mark.”

Read the article here:



Two boys were riding a bicycle built for two when they came to a steep hill. It took a great deal of struggle for the boys to complete what proved to be a very steep climb. When they got to the top, the boy in front said, "Man, that was a hard climb!" The boy in back responded, "Yes it was. And if I hadn't kept the brakes on all the way we would have probably rolled down backwards and killed ourselves."

When working on a project, it can sometimes feel that not everyone is pulling their weight. Bringing this to their attention can be difficult. Bring all your team members together and go over the job piece by piece. Make sure that everyone knows his or her responsibility. Break down each responsibility and make sure that everyone knows what everyone else is supposed to do. Keep it professional and positive. Ask if any team member has a problem with completing their tasks and then adjust. Reinforce the fact that each one must do their part and not make excuses for any lack of performance. If needed, give each team member a progress chart, so that they can track their performance Give each one a deadline and set a reasonable time to meet again.

Those that don’t pull their weight will have no excuse to fall back on. After all, you asked, prior to the commencement of the task, if anyone had a problem or concern about completing his or her duties. With no excuses to fall back on, oftentimes, everyone pulls their own weight allowing the team to, successfully, reach its destination.

"The transference of thoughts, the possibility of sensing the past or the future can not be accidents. I don’t believe in accidents." - Sigmund Freud, psychologist, author of “The Psychopathology of Everyday Life."
