INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE ABOUT SUCCESS "Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance" ~ Brian Tracy

Brian Tracy (born January 5, 1944) is a Canadian-American motivational public speaker and self-development author. He is the author of over seventy books that have been translated into dozens of languages. His popular books are Earn What You're Really Worth, Eat That Frog!, and The Psychology of Achievement.

I started listening to Brian Tracy's programs more than 20 years ago.

New Colour system for the 10 Life Goal Categories

With some of my extra time stuck at home, I've taken to PicMonkey, a photo editing & design program. It allows you to craft unique visuals in no time with powerful design & photo editing tools. While I've dabbled with it before, I'm now learning to use it and help build out some better imagery at the 100 Goals Club.

I created "icons" for each of the 10 Life Goal categories and a colour scheme to go with it. Below is the logic for my icon selection and colours, inspired by my experience when I was a karate student and rose through the ranks from White Belt to Black Belt.

1. Personal Development - WHITE BOOK - Your personal development is like the start of a long journey. Analogous to starting Karate as a white belt as I once did so many years ago. Reading books is one of the best ways to support your personal development.

2. Health and Fitness - RED BICYCLE - I associate the colour red with health. I always have. Think of a delicious red apple. Analogous to "An apple a day keeps the doctor away". Riding a bicycle is one of the best forms of exercise.

3. Family and Friends - BLUE COUPLE HOLDING HANDS - One of the greatest sources of happiness is the relationships we have with our family and friends. I associate happiness with the colour blue. Why, because I'm also happy near blue tranquil water! Holding hands with your partner is true happiness.

4. Hobbies and Passions - ORANGE ART EASEL - Hobbies are what make you unique and give you identify. I've chosen the colour orange to represent this uniqueness. If you drive an orange car for example, you'll definitely stand out. If you are creative and can draw or paint, you'll likely use an art easel!

5. Financial - GREEEN COINS - Finances are associated with money. Lots of paper money around the world is green, hence the association. Counting your pennies or coins is a great way to be financial responsible.

6. Career - GREY ORGANIZATION CHART - Careers can take many forms and shapes. One job can grow over a life time. Think of the expression "multiple shades of grey" and apply it to how your career can morph over time. Most of us work in an organization as either an employee or a boss, illustrated perfectly through a simple org chart.

As you progress up the Karate belt colour system, the colours deepen as you gain experience, competence and wisdom . . .

7. Adventure - PURPLE HOT AIR BALOON - Purple is a deep bold colour, aligned perfectly with someone seeking adventure in their life. Think about a purple hot air balloon! Hot air ballooning over vineyards with your partner is a great romantic adventure.

8. Travel - DARK BLUE PLANE - Much of travel is in an airplane through blue sky and over deep blue water. Travel also requires that you've developed your financials into a strong and healthy state. Not something that most achieve until their late thirties or forties. Appropriate for the progression up the belt color system. Blue is a very serious belt to achieve in the martial arts.

9. Lifestyle - BROWN HOUSE - For the same reasons mentioned above, achieving a great lifestyle requires significant planning, patience and time. It's not something to jump in too quickly (i.e. buying a new car when you're just out of school). Earning your brown belt in Karate is a major step and means that you are serious about success. Start enjoying the results of all your hard work and effort. Owning your first house is a significant step in developing your lifestyle.

10. Leaving a Legacy - BLACK GLOBE - Achieving a black belt in a martial art is a pinnacle of your life. Reaching a point where you start thinking about how you can give back to society and your community is equally important. One of the greatest gifts we can aspire to is to help others and do things that make the world a better place. A globe is symbolic of helping the world and making a difference.

So there you go, the logic behind the colour system for the 10 life goal categories at the 100 Goals Club!

Good advice to avoid negativity

CONTROL YOUR INPUTS During this crisis, you’re vulnerable to more than just the coronavirus. While that threatens your physical health, the “virus” of negative thinking can threaten your outlook and your leadership. It’s hard to keep yourself motivated—let alone motivate others—when all you hear is bad news. Right now it’s more critical than ever to control the inputs into your mind. Yes, we’re in a crisis. Much of the news is bad. But most media sources report much more than the events themselves. Commentary, conjecture, complaining, blaming, and arguing occupy a large portion of the news cycle. That negative talk can dominate social media as well. But it doesn’t have to infect your mind. When you go to a buffet restaurant, you don’t have to eat everything offered. You can take what you need and leave the rest. Do that with the media too. Get your news update, then move on. Take time to read some good news. You can’t allow your outlook to be invaded by pessimism, anger, or fear. You’ve got important work to do!

The above is an extraction from an email newsletter from Michael Hyatt. Michael S. Hyatt is an American author, podcaster, blogger, speaker, and the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson. He has written several books about leadership, planning, and goal setting.
