Developing an Attitude of Abundance

A Brian Klemmer original

How can we switch from a scarcity mindset to an attitude of abundance?

One key is to recognize opportunities. Here’s a story that illustrates this. Once there was a fisherman who caught a large fish. Bringing out his ruler, the man measured his catch: twenty inches. The man threw the fish back. Soon after, his rod wiggled again. This fish measured only five inches and the fisherman dropped it into his bucket. And so it went. The fisherman kept every fish under twelve inches and threw back every fish of greater size. Finally, a nearby fisherman could no longer hide his disbelief. “You keep throwing back the fish larger than twelve inches,” he said. “Why the heck are you doing that?” Read More…

The Ultimate Sales Formula

A Brian Klemmer original

What is your reaction when you hear the word sales? If you’re like many of the people I encounter, you have a negative view of sales. But I think this is a strange attitude to have, because ultimately everybody is in sales. If you’ve ever been on a date, you sold someone on asking you out, or on saying yes to your request. If you’ve ever gotten married, you participated in a big sale! Or, if you’ve ever succeeded in comforting someone who’s feeling bad, then you also participated in a sale.

Sales, from my viewpoint, is one of the most critical skills to learn if we want to be effective as parents, managers, community activists, or leaders in any other role.

If this concept is so important, then why do so many have a negative Read More…

5 Important Reasons to Take a Hint from Winter and Chill Out!

Do you ever feel like life is too intense, fast-paced, or out-of-control? You have goals to reach, deadlines to meet, and appointments to keep. Rushing from activity to activity, sometimes you barely having time to think, eat, or sleep. From time to time you entertain the idea of slowing down a little, but then, you feel guilty. What a waste of time that would be! Think about how much productivity you might squeeze out of those precious seconds. We live in a culture that applauds achievement at any cost, and busyness is looked on as a virtue.

If this describes your life, then it’s time, along with the rest of us, to take a hint from winter. Looking out on a frozen, snow-covered landscape, it doesn’t look like much is going on. Trees are bare, the ground is hard, very little is green, and there aren’t many signs of animal life, either. In fact, it looks like almost everything is dead.

But it’s not. Read More…

Getting Back in Balance

By Brian Klemmer 

Wherever I go, it seems as if people want balance in their lives. They’re working hard and find it difficult to juggle all the different areas they are involved in. Part of this has to do with focus, which I address in my book The Compassionate Samurai. The need for developing balance in the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual parts of our lives is discussed in my book If How-To’s Were Enough We Would All Be Skinny, Rich and Happy! (pages 104-114). Let’s expand on these thoughts.

When we’re in balance, we have greater power and peace of mind. The first time I rated these four aspects of my life, I was very strong on the mental and physical sides, but my spiritual and emotional development was weak. I found that Read More…

Accountability for Extraordinary Goal Achievements

By Rosie Bank

Klemmer attracts many people who are in business for themselves. Why? Because entrepreneurs are often oriented toward personal and professional development. They are exactly the kind of individuals who would flock to a leadership training company like Klemmer. Also, people who are in business for themselves frequently seek a good stretch because we know that the prizes are slightly beyond our reach, but within our sight. I may be short in stature but I strive to be tall by stretching to the next level in my business. I know I am not alone in having experienced some of the most significant personal stretches of my entire life while going through all tiers of the Klemmer seminar series.

Today in business, it is no longer acceptable to be good enough. You must be extraordinary. One of the differences between average and exceptional people is Read More…
