Getting Back to Growth

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

After shutting down the discussion forums a week ago, I took some time to think about my major focus for 2012, as I like to do at the beginning of each new year. To wrap up 2011 and transition to 2012, Rachelle and I went to Phoenix for Raw Spirit Fest, and then yesterday we […]

Conscious Success

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

In the mid-2000s, most of my income came from advertising. The Google Adsense ads on my website were bringing in $9-10K per month, and it was totally passive income. I focused on writing new articles, and Google took care of selling and serving up the thousands of ads that were displayed each day. It was […]

How to Make Money From Your Art

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

Is it possible to enjoy a financially abundant living as an artist (the word artist being used in the most general sense)? Or is this simply an unrealistic dream? Of course it’s possible. Many people have done it before. But is it realistic for you? Well… that depends. The honest answer is: probably not. What it […]

Creating a Business Plan

Monday, October 10th, 2011

It’s true that you don’t need to create a formal business plan in order to start a business. You can kickstart a business very quickly without having to plan out every detail in advance. That said, there can be tremendous value in planning. Thinking through a business in advance is hard work and requires deep […]

The 10-day NLP Mindfest hosted by Learning Strategies ended a week ago. I was informed that about 65,000 people listened to it, including thousands of StevePavlina.com readers. The turnout significantly exceeded their expectations, so this program was quite a success. For anyone who missed it, Learning Strategies is now offering recordings of all the sessions, either on […]

Love Your Customers

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Let me share a possibly unorthodox angle on customer service. One reason my business has been successful is that I enjoy running it. A big part of that enjoyment is that I genuinely like the people my business attracts as long-term customers. I include many of them among my friends and hang out with them […]

Learning Strategies is hosting a free online festival for people who want to learn more about personal growth. It’s called the NLP Mindfest, and it starts on September 12, 2011 and runs for 10 days. Since this program hasn’t started yet, I haven’t seen it. But I wanted to let you know about it for […]

How to Achieve Travel Goals

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Are there some places you’d just love to visit? How long have you dreamed of doing so? Years perhaps? When you see movies about visiting certain cities, or hear about people traveling there, does a certain part of your psyche salivate with desire? Do you have the thought, I really want to go there someday. […]

How To Do Everything Wrong

Monday, July 18th, 2011

While I normally write for people who are interested in improving their lives, I’m aware that many are committed to the opposite path. These people deliberately decline steps that would lead to measurable improvements. They prefer that everything goes wrong — for as long as possible. Sometimes they screw up and accidentally do something right. […]

How to Defeat Kolrami

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

One of the most potent lessons I’ve ever learned (and would love to impart to you) is just how powerful a seemingly simple perspective shift can be. Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” I hope you realize just how profound that statement […]
