Get Serious!

by Richard Pulst Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
Have you ever felt that sometimes it is easier to let important things slide and have some fun? I think it is pretty natural that sometimes you want to get the instant-gratification of a party or watching a movie or eating that delicious ice-cream ( while on diet). But the truth is that it would be better to skip the easy thing and go for the vastly greater reward you get with being disciplined. I will give you an example, a ...

Have A Positive Look On Life

by Richard Pulst Business, Self Improvement
Recently, as I was on my way to the office I stumbled on a video on YouTube of Norman Vincent Peale. The late pastor is well known for his book "The Power Of Positive Thinking". In the video he talked in his unmistakeable, strong voice how positive thinkers tend to get positive results. Now, if you really think about it, it is absolutely true. Mr. Peale recalled a moment when he accidentally bumped into one of his friends on the streets ...

Have Faith In Yourself

by Richard Pulst Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online
Recently I had a great opportunity to speak to a friend of mine. He has been working on a program with students for almost three years. It has been a good place to learn selling skills and also step out of one's comfort zone. However, my friend's heart belongs to ice-hockey. And he got an opportunity to become the Secretary General of the Ice Hockey Federation. The only problem was that he's manager in the student-program had already anticipated that my ...

Sometimes It Takes Time

by Richard Pulst Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
I just had an interesting experience that I thought would be interesting to share. So in March this year my Dad had his 50th birthday and as we live in different countries, I wanted to surprise him with a gift. I went out, saved some money and bought a nice gold watch. Added a birthday card to it and sent in out 10 days before the actual birthday. As days and weeks passed, I realized that the package had not reached my ...

Massive Success Is The Best Revenge

by Richard Pulst Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
I'm sure that you have been in a situation where you feel like other people have taken advantage of you. I have definitely been in such a position. Be it a coworker, a boss or maybe even a family member. Sometimes some people like to talk down on others in order to feel better themselves. It is not good or in any way noble, but sometimes it happens. I'm sure that you haven't done something like that on purpose, but ...

Ask For Quality Advice

by Richard Pulst Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
If you have a stomach ache or a headache where do you go to find a solution? To the doctor, or your uncle or any other relative, assuming that none of them are doctors. If your car has a flat tire, where do you go to find a solution? To the car repair shop, I assume. It sounds pretty obvious that if you have somekind of a problem, it would be a good idea to find an expert in that field ...

by Richard Pulst Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
We all as human-beings have had our fair share of bad luck and problems in our lives. I have had them, I'm absolutely sure that you have had them also. The big difference between the Winners and the Losers in this world is how we handle these difficulties. Most people think that if they have a problem then it is bigger and much worse than other people's problems. The reality is that there are always people who are worse off than ...

Dream Big And Stay Disciplined!

by Richard Pulst Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
I was in Warsaw, Poland last weekend and got to hear a good speech by Cedric Dumont. He is a skydiver sponsored by Red Bull. He gets to experience the feeling closest to flying possible for human beings. Cedric brought up a great point about setting big goals and achieveing them. Here we are talking about a guy who has landed next to the pyramids in Egypt. It is only natural for people to dream but sadly most of the dreaming ...

Do it by yourself or find a Mentor?

by Richard Pulst Business, Self Improvement
It is very easy to think sometimes that we have got all the answers. Furthermore, it is even tempting to think that other people do not have our best interest in mind and we just can't trust them. It is probably correct to some extent, but let's face it. Nobody in this beautiful world has ever become successful, happy or fulfilled without other people helping out. Do you think you would have ever heard about Michael Jordan or Cristiano Ronaldo, if ...

It's the Information Age- how can you benefit?

by Richard Pulst Business, Home Based Business, Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement
First of all let me just go through a little bit of history here. During the time of human labour we have gone through 3 major phases, the Agrarian Age, the Industrial Age and now we're in the Information Age, also known as the Digital Age. If we take the lessons of history and remember what happened when the Industrial Revolution changed the world completely, we can get a pretty good idea of what is happening in the world today. Did ...

Do a little bit more than expected.

by Richard Pulst Business, Self Improvement
Have you ever found yourself in the position of wondering about what other people could do for you? I definitely have. You know, sometimes you just think that your friends should keep in touch more often or your spouse should be nicer etc. I guess it's natural to think that way sometimes, but to be honest, it is not a good way to think. Why is that? The reason is that if you do not do anything, then it is a ...

Take control of your time.

by Richard Pulst Business, Self Improvement
It is so easy to let the outside forces control our life and make us do the things we do in life. Be it the media, advertisements, society or even other people around us. For most people the major outside force is work. Think about it, our job determines the time we can spend with our family, loved-ones, doing our hobbies and so on. It also determines how much money we have at hand, to use it in order to do ...

Hey there! I bet that you have been walking around and seen somebody drive by in a really nice sportscar. Or maybe you have walked through a really well-off neighbourhood where people have beautiful houses, gorgeous gardens and luxurious cars. Have you thought to yourself, what are these people doing for a living? That's purely natural and as human beings we admire others who are doing well.

How to go from nothing to something?

by Richard Pulst Self Improvement
First of all I'm gonna shed some light on my story so far. I grew up in a lower-middle class environment in Northern Europe. Raised my a single Mom I felt pretty strongly the financial pressure she was under, raising me alone. At first she received some support from my Grandmother who received my late Grandfather's pension. But when the relationship between my Mom and Grandmom became somewhat strained, she was all on her own. At that point I started to ponder ...
