LQI VS HQI Low quality information vs High quality information
Why subject yourself to information that will never impact your life. What happens in the news or with the Kardashians does not and will not ever change your life, at least in a positive way. Why not instead focus on things that actually impact your life.
These small suggestions alone will propel you towards any goal you may have in life. Make a conscience effort of knowing how much time is spent on low quality information. I guarantee that you’ll be shocked at the amount, I know I was. Check out this TEDEX video by Richard St.John on The Importance Of Focus
I have failed at many things in life and business but I knew instinctively to keep moving forward. It took me a long time to understand that failure is a byproduct of success. The idea of admitting failure meant that people viewed you as weak. It was almost looked at as the wicked step child you never talk about, yet it’s a constant factor in anyone’s life experience or business. I would personally always attempt to dismiss it, but what I learned when I looked at it objectively was educational. If a part on a car is bad you don’t throw away the car you diagnose the problem and replace the part. My point is success does not always reveal it’s self until it’s ready or willing, sometimes it needs to fail in order to succeed. I know many people myself included that sometimes has to take the long route. (Try and learn from other peoples experiences, you can save yourself a lot of time and pain.) My opinion on failure is embrace it, that’s what lets you know your doing something great. Every time your willing to put yourself out there encourages others to do the same. Trust me they’re watching and they’ll only reveal themselves when you follow through.
Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
P.S. I’d love to hear your story of failure and how you turned it around. Please post in the comments below or send me a tweet @chrisgenge
I love how Jia Jiang turned the feeling of rejection and fear on it’s head and discovered strength in himself and inspirational people along the way.
Chasing your dream requires you put everything out there and deal with the consequences. When aspiring entrepreneur Jia Jiang left corporate life to build his dream company, he had no idea it also meant facing crushing rejection.

I believe we all have an inner champion, to win at the game of life you have to be a hungry competitor. I believe skills can can be built and nurtured to improve who you are today to anyone that’s willing. Michael Jordan was successful because he didn’t give up. When he first tried out for his high school basketball team, would you be surprised to know he didn’t make the cut. Can you imagine how life would be for millions of kids and adults that were inspired by his greatness had there been no Michael Jordan. So how did he turn it around? He made a decision to learn everything there is to know about the game. He would start early and finish late until he knew every inch of the court. He is a success because he put in the work to be a champion. In business similarly, key ingredients are needed to be of benefit, the first knowledge of your business and people skills. I believe a lasting success is found in the balance of these two skills. Did you know that candidates that had more experience failed to get the contract or job over people with greater people skills. So It’s not just what you learn on the court or in the boardrooms that gives you “the edge” it’s also the communication off the court and out of the office that complete the package.

Successful People Are Always Looking For That Edge.
“I work out.” The answer offered by Sir Richard Branson when asked what do you do to be at your best. You can’t have success without being healthy everyone knows that, but what if it was also proven to increase mental creativity.
