    The Importance of Sharing

    By May 22,2024

    The most happy and successful people in the world are masters of sharing. The most unhappy and consistently challenged people, both emotionally and financially, are poor at sharing. When you find people who are alone and miserable, in most cases they are also not the sharing kind. When you encounter people who persistently are unemployed, or have difficulties getting ahead in their jobs, most of these people too will have problems with sharing. In fact, wherever you go in the world and whomever you meet, as a general rule, the people who do the...

    You Need to Be Able to Close

    By Mar 28,2024

    The ability to ‘‘close’‘ and get the sale is the most important skill in selling. It’s something that few people know how to do. Many people can get a consumer, an employer, or others to the cusp of making a purchasing or a hiring decision; however, it’s the final ‘‘push’‘ that makes all the difference. It takes a tremendous amount of skill to sell yourself and get a job. It takes a tremendous amount of skill to go from someone who a potential employer will consider for the job to someone who is hired. Your job in getting...

    You Need to Stand for Something

    By May 14,2024

    Today, I read a story in the Washington Post about a girl who recently resigned from West Point and is going to Yale. She resigned from West Point because she is gay and the school will kick her out if it learns that she is gay. Tired of compromising between what she believed was right and wrong, she resigned to protest the policy and be consistent with her own internal compass. When I started reading the story, I immediately thought—she’s probably transferring to Harvard or Yale. Sure enough, it did not surprise me when I learned later...

    How to Choose Recruiters, Executive Search, and Recruitment Agencies (and How They Work)

    By Apr 30,2024

    When you go to most job sites, the majority of advertisements you will typically see will be from recruiters. However, despite so many recruiter advertisements clogging job sites, recruiters are one of the most popular (and most misunderstood) ways of getting a job. It is rare to see articles that are negative about recruiters, or information that ”tells it like it is” when it comes to giving you advice on how to work with recruiters. The reason for this is largely due to the fact that the money recruiters pay to advertise on job sites...

    Your Job Is about the Transference Energy

    By May 21,2024

    A few years ago I was in India and was interested in going to see what is called “an energy healer”. I was interested in this because I had been to several seminars where I had heard about people changing outcomes and healing others with energy by transferring energy from the universe. I went to see a Reiki energy healer and they did something called “balance my Chakras”. This was an experience in itself, but the real knowledge I got out of energy and its place in our lives between people happened when I was sitting in the...

Self-Esteem and Lunch Room Tables

By May 10,2024

From ages 13 to 17, I attended six different schools in a variety of cities and countries. I never found attending these new schools all that difficult.  What I disliked, though, was penetrating the pecking order of the lunch tables.  This was especially...
