Over the past 18 years as a full-time professional speaker, I’ve worked with most of of the top thought leaders in the personal development space. My conclusion today is the same as it was back in 1996: Mental Toughness, the ability to control and manipulate your emotions combined with iron-like persistence, is the key to the world-class success. In my mind, that’s a given. The critical thinking question we all have to ask ourselves is; “do I have the mental toughness to get what I really want out of life?” Not what you’ll settle for, but what you actually want. Watch this short video I taped at the Civil War Battlefield at Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia, where one of the bloodiest battles of the civil war was fought. I’ll look forward to your comments.

Labor unions leveled the playing field during a time of flagrant abuses by some employers and organizations. In the information age, where a post on Facebook or a tweet on Twitter exposing abuses can be read by millions in minutes, unions are no longer necessary. Critical thinking (ATS–According to Siebold–:) says that it’s time to abolish unions and allow the free market to operate. Watch this short (and somewhat shocking) video I shot in front of a live audience in Ann Arbor, Michigan and watch the outcry. I’ll look forward to your comments.

“If You Had The Guts…”

By Steve · Comments (4)

In 1620, the Pilgrims had the mental toughness to leave their homes and sail across the ocean to begin a new life. That took a lot of guts. My critical thinking question for you is “What habit, action or behavior, if you had the guts to employ it, would have the biggest impact on your life?” Watch this short video I taped yesterday in front of The Mayflower in historic Plymouth, Mass. and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Critical Thinking on Drug War

By Steve · Comments (4)

I’ve been traveling through South & Latin America, and the damage the U.S. drug laws have done to these countries and their people is shameless. The merciless drug cartels south of the border have taken over. The majority of demand for drugs comes from the United States, due to the so-called, failed war on drugs. Our jails are full of people doing hard time for drug possession and it needs to end. Watch this short video I taped in Key Largo, and I’ll look forward to your comments.

Wealth Quote draws Hate Mail

By Steve · Comments (13)

In the past few weeks I’ve received hate mail and even calls from the national media after delivering this quote: “If your net worth is the average of your five friends, is it time to make some new friends?” Watch this short explanation I taped while skiing in Deer Valley, Utah last week, and I’ll look forward to your comments.

On Sunday night I walked the 500 foot long Red Carpet at the Academy Awards with legendary actor Harrison Ford, and had an interesting exchange with him afterwards with a Mental Toughness lesson built into it. Watch this short video I shot after the show and I’ll look forward to your comments.
