How to Create Bullet-Proof Habits...The Postage Stamp Method

It has established a habit of only sticking to that goal. That habit will never be broken. The postage stamp always stays the course.

In 2008, after my mom died of colon and liver cancer, a few years later, I developed the habit of getting up at 4 a.m. and going to the gym. That habit has helped and sustained me all these years. I knew I had to do something to get my mind out of the loop of negativity. I knew I had to physically move my body because where your focus goes, energy flows.

With that said, I started researching other high achievers and came across Brendon Burchard. I quote him a lot. That’s because what he says really resonates with me and has helped me become the person I am today.  I curate only the best. Brendon has been studying high achievers for over 20 years and the biggest secret...

How to Say I'm Sorry & Express Forgiveness...The Postage Stamp Method

Consider the postage stamp. The postage stamp feels sorrow and pain when it does not reach its destination on time and it is sorry for the delay. When the letter or package finally arrives it in effect is saying, “I am sorry for the delay, please forgive me.”

Why is it so hard for some people to apologize?

The magazine, The Watchtower states, “One reason why a person hesitates to apologize may be the fear of rejection. Troubled by the thought of being given the cold shoulder, he may not express how he really feels. Why, the person who was hurt might totally avoid the offender, making reconciliation very difficult.

“A lack of concern for other people’s feelings may be another reason why some hesitate to apologize. They may reason, ‘Apologizing will not undo the blunder I have already made.’ Still others hesitate to say that they are sorry because of the possible consequences. They wonder, ‘Will I be held responsible and be asked to make...

How to Raise Your Standards in Every Area of Your Life...The Postage Stamp Method

Consider the postage stamp. When it comes to standards, the postage stamp can go no higher. Whatever the letter of package costs, the postage stamp is willing to pay the price. It does not ask for a discount or to be sent free. It pays what is asked of it. Its standards are among the highest in the world. What about you?

 What is the difference between something you should do and something you absolutely must do?

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn said, “The things easy to do are also easy not to do.” In other words, the things you should do are things that are easy not to do and so you don’t do them. Some of these things are:

I should eat healthier.

I should exercise more.

I should treat my spouse with respect.

But when you absolutely must do something, as if your life depended on it, there is a shift and change in you. If eating healthier meant you would live or die, then you most likely would do it. The same with exercise and treating your spouse with respect,...

New York Times Best-Selling Author Dave Ramsey once said, “I am positive that personal finance is 80 percent behavior and only 20 percent head knowledge.” Ramsey believes it our behaviors around money that makes us continually fall into debt and live a life of struggle.

But, just like with anything, if you want to change your behavior with money, you have to do just that, change. But change is painful, right? Very few people view change in a positive light. Unfortunately, most people won’t change until the pain of where they are exceeds the pain of change. That’s why, according to CNN Money, a whopping 76 percent of Americans live from paycheck to paycheck.

How to Have More Confidence...The Postage Stamp Method

Consider the postage stamp. In order to get from where you are to where you want to be, you have to know two things – where you are and where you want to go. If you don’t like where you are now and you want to get to a different place in your life, you need to have one very crucial thing –confidence. The postage stamp has great confidence because it takes massive action to get to you.


Scientists used to believe that humans responded to information flowing into the brain from the outside world. But today, they’re learning more and more that we respond to what the brain expects to happen next.

Neuropsychologists call it the expectancy theory. Basically, through a lifetime’s worth of events, our brains actually learn what to expect next – even if it does not happen. And because our brain expects something will happen a certain way, we often achieve exactly what we anticipate.

Do you see the dilemma?

If you don’t expect much to happen in...
