The Other F Word - How Failure Can Be The Key To Your Success
Thomas Edison has done it. Naomi Watts often jokes about it. Sylvester Stallone mastered it. Billy Joel did it with his piano. Even Abraham Lincoln earned a name for himself for doing it many times over. In fact most of us experience it fairly frequently. Some more than others. It?s known as the other ?f? word.

Unlocking Human Potential
Before we can unlock human potential, we need to know what it is. Human potential is defined as an unexposed ability and hidden power. For a rock seated on a cliff, it has a dormant ability, a reserved power, but for you and I, it simply means unused success, hidden talents and capped capability.
Your Words Have Power
You teach others how to treat you by how you treat yourself. Make a commitment to honor your word, choose your words carefully, and learn how to follow through on all of your promises. By taking your word more seriously, you will find that you are more confident, your self-respect increases, as does the respect you receive from others.
How Important is Your Lemonade Stand?
When my neighbor?s child was about 8, he decided that he wanted to lemonade stand. He asked me to help him, which I did. And he was very serious about the whole matter.

(Luckily, he was unaware of business insurance, city permits, and employee benefits!)

Clues for Success: Finding Answers Right in Front of Your Face
An old fable tells about a religious man and a flood. As the water
began to rise, the man's neighbor came by in a boat and offered to
take him to safer ground. He politely declined, "God will save me."
When the water had risen up to his second floor windows, authorities
came by in a rescue boat. They shouted impatiently at him to get into
the boat, but he sent them off, saying, "God will watch out for me."
Later, as he sat on his roof with water lapping at its edges, a
military helicopter hovered above him; a rescue officer was lowered to
bring him up into the aircraft. Again he refused . . . and later
drowned. When he reached heaven, he was furious and demanded a
meeting with God.
Informational Interviews: Tips for Success
As a work-life and career coach, I regularly work with people who are engaged in a full-blown career change. Typically, this process involves identifying potential "next careers" through a variety of methods, and then seriously exploring them.

These questions are based on the assumption that you have sent your resume to this person ahead of the meeting so they have some idea of where you are coming from.

Identifying your intentions is particularly key if you are setting professional goals for the coming year, or considering a career transition.
