The one fear all successful people learn to overcome

By Jim Whitt An up-and-coming band was playing bars throughout the south in the 1970s when a Macon, Georgia record producer decided they were good enough for the big time. He recorded a dozen of their songs and headed to L.A. to pitch the band to the big boys of the music business only to find no takers. They said one song was particularly hurtful to their chances. It was too long and would never get airtime on the radio. But somebody did give it playtime and it ended up selling a gazillion copies. The song was Free Bird. The… Read More

Want to be more successful? Go fishing…

By Jim Whitt Fishing brings to mind Rockwellian visions of barefoot boys lounging lazily on a creek bank with cane poles, a can of worms and not a care in the world. Fishing in the 21st century wouldn’t fit in a Norman Rockwell frame, however. Fishing has become big business. Billions of dollars are spent on high powered boats and high tech equipment. But all that technology will not make you a great fisherman. If you learn the secret to successful fishing you will also learn how to be more successful in life. In an issue of Dakota Country magazine,… Read More

Too good to be great?

This is a favorite of Angie Youngblut, one of our longtime subscribers. It was originally published August 9, 2006. I think it’s a great message to share again in our first issue for 2014. If any of you have favorites you think are worth sharing again please let me know. Thanks Angie! By Jim Whitt Whenever I’m speaking I’ll ask the audience, “How many of you want to reach your full potential?” Every hand goes up. Now, I believe they mean it. They really want to. But I also know that when most of them walk out of the room they will… Read More

What’s Your Reality?

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: In the movie, The Truman Show, Truman Burbank has been the unwitting star of a 24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week TV show even before his birth.

Ode to Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar passed away at age 86 yesterday. Zig may have influenced more people in the sales profession than any other person. When I started my sales career with Ralston Purina in the 1970s I listened to his audiocassettes while humming down the road in the High Plains. Zig was the ultimate sales professional who became the world’s ultimate sales trainer. Zig eventually became best known as a motivational speaker. I’ll never forget an evaluation I received from an audience member at a speaker showcase years ago who called me a “Zig Ziglar retread.” That was the nicest backhanded compliment… Read More

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

By Jim Whitt Psychologist William James offered this simple but extremely accurate observation about the human species, “Compared to what we ought to be, we are half awake.” Most of us are sleep walking through life. It is only when we are provoked from our slumber that we take a look around at the new world we wake up in and ask, “Where am I and what am I doing?” That provocation most often comes in the form of adversity. Adversity is like a slap in the face. Mild adversity may only interrupt our slumber long enough to make us… Read More

What Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson Can Teach Us about Change

By Jim Whitt A few months ago, Charlie Sheen seemed to be on top of the world. Then his world turned upside down. What’s really sad is that Charlie thought he was, to use his terminology, winning. And why shouldn’t he? He was raking in millions of dollars as the star of the highest rated sitcom on television. By many standards Charlie Sheen was a success. He probably really believed he possessed Adonis DNA and Tiger Blood. He saw absolutely no need to change. Now he has no show. Mel Gibson, another celebrity whose problems are well documented, knows what… Read More

Getting Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

By Jim Whitt This article was originally published on November 19, 2008 … “You’d be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap,” says Dolly Parton. That, ladies and gentlemen, is an oxymoronic statement. There’s nothing cheap about Dolly Parton. She is solid gold – an extraordinary talent that has made herself even more so by capitalizing on her paradoxical personality. Dolly personifies oxymoronica, a term coined by Dr. Mardy Grothe.  Oxymoronica is also the title of a book by Dr. Grothe which explores the world of contradictory figures of speech such as the quote by Dolly Parton. “Many… Read More

Management Block

By Jim Whitt I found a treasure trove of ideas in responses from readers to my article about Writer’s Block on September 29 (if you missed it you’ll find it at http://www.purposeunlimited.com/blog/). One of my Canadian friends called and asked me exactly what caused Writer’s Block. I told him I thought my case may have been caused by brain overload. If the cognitive circuitry is taxed beyond capacity (not difficult to do with my brain) it may continue to supply the brain power necessary to handle normal daily activity but there’s not enough juice left over for anything else. “Oh,”… Read More

Writer’s Block

By Jim Whitt If you have not been receiving my Eletter lately it is not due to technical difficulty. It is due to cognitive difficulty. In my case the cognitive difficulty is what’s known as Writer’s Block. Simply put Writer’s Block is when you sit down to write and you can’t. Your mind is just as blank as the screen on the computer. I’ve read about writers who have suffered from this malady but have never experienced it myself – until now. So, I have taken a sabbatical from writing the last few weeks. It really wasn’t like I had… Read More
