Making a Difference in Someone’s Life

There are little ways and big ways of making a difference in someone’s life.  More likely than not, there’s someone you can immediately call to mind who has impacted you and really made a difference in your life, whether it happened recently or even back during your formative years.

There are definitely certain individuals in my life who have made a big difference for me and in this five minute video, I tell the story of how one of these people in specific really made a positive impact on my life back in high school and helped shape me into who I am today simply by believing in me and giving me a chance when it seemed that no one else would.

After watching the video, please share a story of your own in the comment forum below about a person you are grateful to for the way they positively influenced your life and made a difference for you.

On Friday, April 5th I will review all the comments and I’ll pick the top three standout stories.  If your story is one of the top three, I’ll send you an autographed copy of Masters of Success and, additionally, if you have a current mailing address for the person who made a difference in your life, I’ll send an autographed copy of the book along with a personal note of recognition to them as well.  A little bit of recognition can mean a lot and, who knows . . . simply bringing to light that you are grateful to them may even find you making a difference in their life.

Success: The Uncommon Application of Common Knowledge

In this short video by Applied Transformation, Inc., I talk to Roger Green about how I came up with the idea that success is the uncommon application of common knowledge, and explain why I’m such a firm believer in the concept.

If you aren’t buying it just yet, think about this . . . everyone I interviewed some years ago about the secret to success–from Buzz Aldrin, to Erin Brockovich, to average businesspeople, to undergraduate college students–all gave me almost the exact same answer.  So, if we all know what it takes to be successful, then why is it that we aren’t all as successful as we’d like to be?

What’s your take on the secret to success?  Is your recipe for success the same as the answer I heard repeated from each person I interviewed, or do you have different ideas about how success is achieved?  Please leave your thoughts in the comments section.
