2013-04-21 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 17s

In this article I’ll share some practical tips for raising your financial vibration and expanding your financial comfort zone. If you dislike the term vibration, don’t worry about it — it’s arbitrary anyway. Feel free to substitute other words like acuity, prowess, intelligence, or even results.

Playing the Money Game

2013-04-13 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 6s

What’s the point of playing the money game? Is it to amass a fortune? Of course not. You’re going to lose it all when you die anyway. The point is to enjoy the experience, have fun, and grow from it. The money game isn’t your enemy. It’s your teacher. Original article: Playing the Money Game [...]…

The Sock

2013-04-04 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 8s

As my cellmate and I opened our fresh bundles of clothes and began getting dressed, he started laughing uproariously. I turned toward him to see what could possibly be so funny. He shot me a huge grin and held up one of the clean socks he was given. The sock was only about an inch [...]…

Ignoring Lack to Create Abundance

2013-03-30 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 9s

It wasn’t just that I began to focus on abundance thinking. I also did my very best to ignore anything in my life that suggested lack or scarcity. I stopped looking at my bills. I stopped answering the phone since most of the calls were from creditors. I ignored my debt and stopped making credit [...]…

Full Engagement

2013-03-17 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 7s

What percentage of your day are you fully 100% engaged in whatever it is you’re doing? Ask yourself, “Am I fully utilizing all my available personal resources right now?” Think of your brain and body together as a factory where your goal is to maximize output (you’re free to define output however you wish). So [...]…

The Harder It Is, The More You Must Love It

2013-03-09 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 3s

Some goals are far more difficult than you first imagined. Perhaps you’ve tried all the easy and obvious approaches, but the goal simply won’t succumb. Sometimes you have to make a couple hundred failed attempts to find an approach that works beautifully for you. Don’t give up just because you missed 20 times or so. [...]…

Rapid Improvement

2013-03-08 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 12s

When we want to build a new skill or just increase our comfort level with a new activity, the frequency of the activity is a key factor to consider. Squeezing the same experiences into a shorter period of time can greatly increase your performance gains. Original article: Rapid Improvement on StevePavlina.com…

Living Paycheck to Paycheck

2013-01-26 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 30s

In order to move beyond living paycheck to paycheck, you have to shift your mindset first. If you get your mind right, the right actions will follow. If you remain stuck in the wrong mindset, it doesn’t matter how hard you try to escape – you’ll just stay locked in the same cage. You might even make [...]…

Be Patient With Yourself

2013-01-16 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 8s

Patience is one of the most important qualities to develop if you care about personal growth. It’s also one of the most difficult. Wouldn’t it be nice if after you identified a change you’d like to make, you could just snap your fingers, and the change would occur instantly? Unfortunately, it’s rarely so easy as [...]…

Please Don’t Interrupt

2013-01-08 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 5s

When you interrupt someone, on average it takes them 23 minutes to get back to the original task, plus up to 30 minutes to return to the flow state so they can be fully productive again. Almost half of the time you interrupt someone, you’ll actually knock them off task completely, such that they won’t return [...]…

Integrity in the Moment of Choice

2012-12-27 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 3s

It’s often unwarranted to abandon a plan prematurely in the face of a minor setback. But to say that you should always follow your original plan no matter what is to ignore the unpredictability of reality. Original article: Integrity in the Moment of Choice on StevePavlina.com…

Is It Time for You to Stop Dabbling and Get Serious?

2012-12-17 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 7s

If you want to start on a serious career path, don’t even think about giving up during the first year. Very little happens during the first year in terms of results. Most businesses aren’t even profitable in their first 2 years; it takes them that long just to become sustainable, even for fairly small businesses. [...]…

If I could say that I have a superpower, it would be that I learn very quickly. More than any other skill, this one has been the most valuable to me over the longest period of time. Even when I’m not particularly good at something initially, I’m usually able to learn it and pick it [...]…

How to Squash Negative Thought Patterns

2012-12-11 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 8s

There are actually quite a number of ways to decondition a negative thought pattern.  The basic idea is to replace the old pattern with a new one.  Mentally resisting the negative thought will usually backfire — you’ll simply reinforce it and make it even worse.  The more you fire those neurons in the same way, the stronger [...]…

5-Year Commitments

2012-11-27 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 6s

People commonly overestimate how far they can get in a year, but grossly underestimate how far they can get in 5 years. If you actually want results, make a 5-year commitment to a particular path, like building an online business, developing your social skills, becoming a world traveler, etc. A lesser commitment is largely pointless.

This is Heaven

2012-11-26 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 9s

If you maintain a negative limiting belief about your reality, such as a belief that this reality is insane, crazy, violent, indifferent, apathetic, etc., then your attitude will absolutely cream you. You can’t expect to get anywhere good with a belief that this reality is anything less than heavenly. http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2012/11/this-is-heaven/…

Plodding and Bursting

Length: 16s

Plodding and bursting are two different strategies for getting things done. Understanding these two modes will help you in two ways. First, you’ll be able to identify your own default mode, so you can better take advantage of it. And second, you’ll be able to understand others who prefer your non-dominant mode, so you can [...]…

Should You Tell Your Mono Partner About Your Interest in Open Relationships?

2012-11-14 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 23s

A common challenge in relationships is the “grass is greener” syndrome. You know what you’ve experienced in your relationship life thus far, and you may have a pretty good idea about what you like within the realm of your past experience, but how can you evaluate completely new experiences? http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2012/10/should-you-tell-your-mono-partner-about-your-interest-in-open-relationships/…

How can you effectively deal with other people’s insecurities? If someone in your life is feeling insecure, let them. If you resist their insecurity, then you’ll have problems. If you accept it, then their insecurity will soon become unnecessary. http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2012/09/dealing-with-others-insecurities/…

All Your Excuse Are Belong to Us

Length: 4s

Anyone can come up with an excuse to avoid taking action, and their excuses always seem valid. The difference between those who take action and those who don’t isn’t a matter of addressing the seemingly valid excuses. People don’t normally acquire more money to eliminate the “not enough money” excuse, nor do they create more [...]…

Judging vs. Creating

2012-09-03 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 10s

I recently asked some people to explain the difference between being judgmental and being selective. I received dozens of different answers. Some people said that being selective is milder, more logical, less emotional, or more practical than being judgmental. Others felt they were just different words to describe the same thing. And still others had [...]…

Exercise Your Freedom Fully

Many people become self-employed to have more freedom and flexibility. Not as many take full advantage of those benefits though. It’s common for people to find themselves self-employed in ways that make them slaves to their desks.

Are You Playing the Waiting Game?

Length: 4s

Lean into action in spite of your doubts. It’s unreasonable to expect perfect clarity in advance. A fuzzy idea is good enough. Ideas don’t normally become crystal clear when you’re standing still and pondering them. In fact, they rarely become crystal clear even after you’ve implemented them. If you’re waiting for clarity before you get [...]…

If you accept a job, a relationship, or a lifestyle that you merely tolerate — but don’t appreciate — you’re putting other concerns ahead of your own happiness.

Branding is Fear-Based B.S.

2012-08-03 :: Steve Pavlina and Chris Calabro
Length: 12s

Branding, brand management, and brand strategy are rooted in fear and are completely unnecessary. This is true whether we’re talking about business, product, organizational, or personal branding. The primary aim of branding is control. But people don’t generally like to be controlled. So branding is largely done at the subconscious level; if it were done [...]…
