Unemployed? When One Door Closes Another Door Opens - Make Money Online

by:
 Ken Stephens (January 30, 2009)  In September of 2008 I lost my job as a long distance truck driver due to a chronic back injury. And of course, no job, no income.

Innovate a Current Niche to Improve Your Business

by:
 Amy Twain (December 25, 2008)  If I am about to make an educated guess, I think I will find many professionals around the world who considered themselves “should have" experts or gurus. As in, “I should have done that. " As my friend Calyx, a Global Client Communicator Mentor told me, that he always hears this message form clients almost all the time. Self employed professionals think and feel that they .. (Innovation)

How Creative Problem Solving Can Save You Money

by:
 Brian Schwartz (November 24, 2008)  Creativity is vital for frugal living.

Get Your Hopes Up and Keep Them That Way - Just Don't Be So Attached to Outcomes

by:
 Pete Koerner (October 15, 2008)  Every living thing wants something. When we get what we want, or when we receive something that we like, we say that we were successful, or that we are content, fulfilled, or happy. And every living thing wants to be content, fulfilled, happy, etc. So HOW do we get what we want? How do we turn our desires into reality? By holding onto the possibility, or hope, that your desires will one . (Innovation)

No Half Measures

by:
 Olatunji Ladi Adejumo (October 14, 2008)  No monumental achievement or idea was ever brought to fruition without two outstanding qualities in its originators; implicit belief in himself even in the face of general unbelief or even condemnation as well as a never-say-die attitude. History indeed, has no place for those who cannot persevere in order to achieve. People of that ilk belong to the trashcan of history. History on the .. (Innovation)

Learn How to Spot Opportunities

by:
 Scott Ginsberg (September 27, 2008)  CONSIDER THIS PHRASE: “Opportunity only knocks once. " OK. Now, let me tell you why that's a big, fat LIE. See, opportunity knocks all the time. All day.

Getting What You Want From Others

by:
 Ed Rigsbee (September 10, 2008)  Getting what you want from others is easier than you think. I believe the single group of people, which do the best job of getting what they want from others, is children. Children are cute, persistent, and frequently down right demanding. And this works for them. However, for adults, there is a different set of rules. Apply the rule of delivering value first and getting what you want .. (Innovation)

Nine Personality Traits That Shape Innovation

by:
 Ira Wolfe (August 17, 2008)  Thomas Edison, possibly America's Greatest Inventor, was once described as having “an inexhaustible resource and fertility of ideas when it came to practical solution finding.

Vibrational Force of the Universe

by:
 Katheryn Hoban (August 07, 2008)  Vibrations are also a very important law of structure and form of the universe. It is now proven that everything is vibrating, at an incredible fast rate of speed. Now we see that the tiniest forms, planets, stars, galaxies, and universes have vibrations built into their form, function and essence. What the astronomer probably won't know fully is that vibration is accurate communication . (Innovation)

Feel Your Innovative Power

by:
 Mani Goel (August 05, 2008)  Innovation is basically creation of a new device or process resulting from study and experimentation. When I conduct a survey about’ “Do they have the power of innovation?" The answer is “no". Some people even say that scientists only have this power.

Innovation - There's Got to Be a Better Way

by:
 Pete Koerner (August 05, 2008)  There's a better way to do things; but, if you don't think about it, or look for it, you aren't likely to find it. And why should we look for a better way of doing things? We shouldn't, necessarily. But, if you do want to find a better way, you need to think about how you define the word “better, " how you want things to be better, and why you want them to be better. This is the .. (Innovation)

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

by:
 Douglas Spencer (July 29, 2008)  Did you ever wonder how many different thoughts can be going on in your head at one time? Countless. Limitless. Like a little society of flying words blasting aimlessly around in our heads with reckless abandon. Did you ever pick up on a few? Like “I'm so fat" or “I can't do this" or “My parent was right I never will amount to anything. " Maybe you've even cheered .. (Innovation)

Destiny to Change and Be Changed!

by:
 Douglas Spencer (July 27, 2008)  Wisdom relayed is that nothing is certain, nothing is fixed, only temporarily stagnant if you believe that anything is immutable. The wise know only that they don't know. Petrified belief is a blockage that will cause trouble unless you release it before the back-flood of energy gets too dangerously big and violently blows through the barrier. “Everything flows and nothing abides; . (Innovation)

Calibrating Your Idea Generation Pipeline

by:
 Derek Cheshire (July 24, 2008)  Most large organisations talk about their ‘sales pipeline’. Without knowing all of the details we understand that a) the pipeline should produce a stream of sales b) the pipeline should ideally be full. Linked to this we also understand that to produce a certain volume of sales we need a given number of contacts, sales appointments or exhibitions to go to. To increase sales .. (Innovation)

Create New Ideas The Law of Perpetual Transmutation

by:
 Melanie Valderrama (July 16, 2008)  The Law of Perpetual Transmutation states that circumstances and things are perpetually coming or going according to your thoughts. This law refers to the fact that circumstances are constantly changing. We first create a new idea and belief and faith will bring it to us while doubt and fear will push it away. My son taught me a great lesson in this law a few years ago. It was .. (Innovation)

What Do You Need? What Do You Demand?

by:
 H. Les Brown (July 15, 2008)  I was talking with a psychotherapist earlier today, and he made what I considered to be a very interesting distinction: between needs and demands. For a long time, I've been interested in the interplay between ‘needs’ (as Abraham Maslow and others have dealt with them) and ‘wants’ (those desires that help us to move forward). In the process, I've discovered that, . (Innovation)

The Role of Ethics in Positive Manifestation

by:
 Carmen Lynne (July 14, 2008)  There has been some controversy regarding the fact that The Secret is a little simplistic. I agree, it is simplistic, but then it has also popularized the subject and made it accessible, in a way that no other book or movie has done, and for that it should receive credit. In the same way that the astrology column in the newspaper doesn't really do justice to the thousand-year-old art of . (Innovation)

Good News Your IQ is Not Set in Stone

by:
 Stan Pontiere (July 08, 2008)  Over the years, I have heard the experts say time and time again that your IQ is developed by the age of 5 years old and there is nothing that you can do to improve it. Now, with new scientific studies, another law of science turns out to be nothing more than myth. Recent scientific studies have proven that even with advancing age, the human brain has far more plasticity than we ever .. (Innovation)

Jump Out Before the Water Boils

by:
 H. Les Brown (July 07, 2008)  There's a story (it turns out that it's only an urban myth) that, if you put a frog in a pot of water and slowly increased the heat, the frog would get boiled to death before realizing it needed to get out of the hot water. [In fact, actual experiments prove that, at some point, the water would become uncomfortably hot and the poor amphibian would leap to safety. ] Frogs, it turns out, .. (Innovation)

Getting Out Of That Boring Rut

by:
 Paul Mobley (July 04, 2008)  Tired of the same old routine everyday? Do you fear changing it? Why? No, you should not quit your job. That would be foolish, unless you have developed another income and have it in hand, or job, that will support you equally to your present job, or better. I am talking about adding innovation to your life. Edison, and all the others like him, are not the only ones who can innovate. .. (Innovation)

Are You a Risk Taker? Why You Should Be!

by:
 Robb Thompson (July 02, 2008)  Reward Belongs Only To those Who Go Beyond Intentions To The Place Of Action I like individuals who are willing to take risks and put themselves on the line to get ahead. They don't fear mistakes or failure. They are unaffected by the opinions of others, which allows them to express themselves freely and openly. When they have an idea, they share it, unafraid of rejection. Their .. (Innovation)

Ancient Manifesting Teachings Vs Modern Manifesting Teachings

by:
 Daniel Hinds (July 01, 2008)  Some modern teachers pollute the manifesting process with so many needless steps when all that matters is simply aligning yourself in the most simple let powerful way. It's a one, two, three process and nature takes care of you. However if you don't know the value of the process you may over looking it. Nature has a way of taking care of itself. The trees don't struggle to grow, the .. (Innovation)

Thomas Edisons Secret to Goal Achievement

by:
 Dax Moy (June 30, 2008)  I used to think that in order to become successful that I had to create unique ideas that no-one, not another soul on the planet had had and then do my best to market them before others had their own ‘unique’ ideas that were the same as mine (think about that for a second) I used to think that if someone took one of my ideas and used it to make money then they were somehow .. (Innovation)

 Pete Koerner (June 26, 2008)  Do you want to create something new, or perhaps change part of your life?

A New Personality Emerges

by:
 H. Les Brown (June 13, 2008)  The old paradigms are shifting . . . often faster than many of us would like to see. I spent last weekend in Los Angeles with Callan Rush and Justin Livingston from Leader to Luminary and they, in turn, introduced us to visionary Peter Evans. Peter suggested that the changes that we've yet to face are of an entirely different order from the changes we've faced before. He intimated that .. (Innovation)

Innovation - Using Emotional Self-Management For Business Success

 Pete Koerner (June 10, 2008)  The key to innovation, invention, and any kind of success is in thinking clearly and effectively when faced with a problem, or a situation requiring a decision or resolution. In other words, creative solutions come from cool-heads and clear-minds - not from people who freak-out when faced with a challenge. If you're ready to take a giant leap forward in your business - and personal - .. (Innovation)

3-Golden Rules of Innovation

by:
 Pete Koerner (June 10, 2008)  It isn't always easy to be different; yet, if you want to be innovative, you've got to break with trends, traditions, and even your own habits. There's no way around this; innovators are bringers of new things - not old things. New means change; change means different. You won't find those inspirations and motivations to do new things, however, by staying in your comfort zone. .. (Innovation)

 Paul Kearley (June 08, 2008)  When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. ~Victor Frankl The 1972 Olympics in Munich will forever be remembered for two separate reasons.

The Courage To Create

by:
 Tina Montalto (May 22, 2008)  We know blocks can prevent us from demonstrating our good. A few of them might kick up some issues about having the courage to have our desires. New things, new experiences, new ways of thinking can be scary. Nothing is required of us if we stick to the status quo. Nothing is required of us if we just go along and let our race thoughts create our lives. Nothing is required of us if we .. (Innovation)

3 Simple Steps To Changing Your Life Using The Power Of Thought

by:
 Jennifer Elliott (May 17, 2008)  The single greatest power any person holds, in fact the greatest single power in the Universe, is the power of thought.

Creative Thoughts From Pre-Thinking

by:
 Michael Durr (April 30, 2008)  Our culture is only just beginning to view thinking as a skill worth learning. I certainly don't want to steal any energy away from this central issue of our time. But it seems to me that we should also encourage attention to activities that precede conscious thinking, when the cognitive compounds begin to bubble and assemble. I'll call it pre-thinking. I'd guess that people who .. (Innovation)

Improve The Process - Thinking Like God

by:
 Amy S. Grant (April 11, 2008)  Ever since I was a small child, I have been fascinated by the concept of “streamlining. " When my grade school teacher was clueless, completely oblivious to the fact that at least half the kids were not “getting" the math she was teaching, I was the one they sneaked off to consult, because I seemed to explain it in a way that anyone could understand. I have always had a .. (Innovation)

Common Sense - Follow Your Heart to the Right Answer

by:
 Pete Koerner (April 01, 2008)  We commonly refer to sense, senses, or sensation, in the context of sight, hearing, touch, etc. We also use the word sense in reference to intelligence or logic. The fact is that the ears, eyes, nose, skin, and mouth/tongue, are not senses - they are “antennae, " or receptors, that pick up specific types of energy or vibration. Sensing is a function of the brain and nervous system . (Innovation)

Have Fun Failing - It's the Quickest Way to Success!

by:
 Pete Koerner (March 31, 2008)  We have all heard sayings like, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade;" but what if you don't like lemonade? The obvious answer is, “Sell the lemonade and buy something you DO like with your profits. " But that doesn't work if you're stuck whining about the lemons. To move forward in life, we must stop looking at the past - at what life HAS given us - and look toward .. (Innovation)

Moving Forward Means Never Looking Back

by:
 Pete Koerner (March 27, 2008)  Innovation means progress, new visions and ideas - moving forward. Forward progress is essential in life and business.

Letting-go of the past is a practical step and a liberating experience. But .. (Innovation)

 Pete Koerner (March 27, 2008)  "If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll keep getting what you've always got.

How well you create and respond to the changes in your life, business, or .. (Innovation)

Innovation that Never Happened

by:
 Pete Koerner (March 27, 2008)  A human - any human - is a doorway between worlds. We stand between the invisible world of the mind - a world of ideas and dreams - and the world of unfolded physical “realities. " Those things we see in the mind we can bring forth into reality; this is where cell phones, computers, airplanes, superconductors, and other inventions come from. And, in the world of business, any .. (Innovation)

Are You Killing Yourself with Your Own Words?

by:
 Pete Koerner (March 26, 2008)  Do you smoke, or eat chocolate, or drink sodas, or indulge in some other “consumptive" activity you think might be bad for you? Do you actually talk about the things you are doing as if they are bad and causing you harm? Have you seen someone smoking a cigarette and heard them say, “Yeah, I know it's killin’ me. . . But I love these ‘cancer-sticks!'" or something . (Innovation)

The Blame Game - Are You Playing It?

by:
 Terry P Carter (March 26, 2008)  The Blame Game is a game we all have probably played at one time or another in our lives. For many of us, we still play it today. Some play it so well, they are masters of it. What they aren't masters of as a result, is their life. More specifically, the life they wish they could have. What is this game I speak of? It's where you blame everyone and everything but yourself for your .. (Innovation)

Your Words Are Your Wishes - Use Them Wisely

by:
 Pete Koerner (March 19, 2008)  Everyone has “wishes. " Of course, people have varying degrees of belief in themselves, and in the possibility of their wishes coming true, or being granted; but everyone wants something. When you pray, for instance, besides sending forth thoughts of gratitude and awe, you probably ask for some of the things you want. Maybe you ask for the strength to endure something, or to be a .. (Innovation)

Word Play

by:
 Jon F. Hansen (March 18, 2008)  Should. Just one syllable. But what a weighty word it is, bringing to bear all the force of society's judgment. You can practically feel everyone (whoever “everyone" is) turning to stare at you. "You should. . . " I commented to a client recently that “should" is the verbal equivalent of rat poison. It kills spontaneity, joy, and true self-expression. You're probably .. (Innovation)

When Life Is Not An Excel Sheet

by:
 Pramod Tonapi (January 23, 2008)  It's a cliched topic. It has come up in many ways than we have thought. But the intensity and relevance of it came to me with my new work life. There was a duality, a conflict, that I was beginning to notice. The conflict between the creative and the disciplined use of my mind. The new work commands that I invest almost half of my energy into creative thinking and the other half into .. (Innovation)
