Vol. 1 #9 - Creating That Image of Success

by Carol Pierce ?2004

Are you really serious about your desire to have whatever you are really wanting personally and professionally?

Does your image project how badly you want to achieve that success in a win/win manner?

What does your image really say about you . . . both in public and in private?


Successful businesses, successful organizations, and successful individuals realize how critical projecting a consistent, positive, success-oriented image is to their getting what they really want in all types of relationships.


Being consistent with the image you project creates that air of trust so vital to true success. Remember, your actions speak much louder than your words . . . that is what causes people to determine the person, the organization, or the business you truly are.


What does the way you dress, the way you work, the way you communicate with people, the attitude you have, even the condition of the car you drive, the house in which you live, and the place where you choose to work say about you?

What image are you truly projecting? How can you make it even more consistent?

Vol. 2 # 3 - Getting What You Really Want, Part 1

by Carol Pierce ? 2005

"How do you know what I really want?"

In the midst of a discussion going in the wrong direction, how often have you had the courage to ask that question because someone mistakenly thought he or she knew what you really wanted?

How often has that other person truly listened to your response and followed through with positive actions?

How often have you asked others what they really want instead of assuming you already knew?

How often have you truly listened to what they have said and taken the proper action yourself?

Truly successful people and successful organizations not only ask that critical question, but they actually follow through and apply the answers to meet the needs of those questioned.

When you know what someone really wants on a personal or on a professional level, you will better meet that person's needs.

Ask someone at work or at home today what he or she really wants. Carefully listen to the response. Then take positive action on it. You'll be amazed at how you may end up getting even more of what you really want as a result.

Why wait? Jump Now!!!



OK..I'll practice what I preach! I would like to know what you really want on a personal or a professional level.

What is the greatest challenge you or your organization are facing at the moment that you would like to have the know-how, the resources, and/or the encouragement to surmount?

Simply click on this link to send your response, being as specific as possible: carol@jumpnow.com

In return, I promise to provide at least one possible solution or the name of an expert in that field who may offer you a solution.

If enough individuals express a similar need, I will go a step further by offering a workshop on that particular topic at a time and place convenient to you.

If you know of other individuals who have that similar concern and would like a specially designed workshop on that topic for your group, please indicate that in your response to help me more effectively serve your needs.

If we don't ask for what we really want, how will we get what we really want?

How do you really want me to help you or your organization with your current challenges?



Because you have asked to remain informed, the following events may interest you and help you gain more of the courage and know-how to get what you really want!

Vol. 2 #1 - Traveling the True Path to Success

by Carol Pierce ? 2005

What was your New Years' resolution?

If you're Catholic, what is your penance for Lent?

Be honest with yourself....why haven't you kept that New Year's resolution? Why has that penance been so difficult?

Is it what you really want for yourself, or what others say you need to do?

Is it what you truly want and need to help you have the better life your truly deserve personally and/or professionally?

What would be a much simpler way to achieve that goal? What steps would make you totally comfortable and are easy for you to implement?

Wouldn't that make sticking to that goal or that penance easier?

What are your waiting for? You have a perfect right to change your mind and change your direction...

Vol. 1 #10 - Discovering the True Secret to Success

by Carol Pierce ?2004

Today's message is quite different, but it is one I know I must share with all of you because it is the true secret to my success and that of all those people I've always noted are really successful in life.


The secret . . .the power of prayer, the power of being humble and reaching out for help when we know we cannot do it alone, the power of having a deep faith, a positive attitude, and caring friends and family . . . and, on top of that, the power of a thank you that is the least expensive but the most powerful and valuable gift we can ever give anyone.


I thank each of you for all your prayers, your concern, and your words of comfort these past few days . . . those were the most valuable, treasured gifts each and every one of you could have given me at this time in my life when I must admit I was scared . . . not scared of that lump being malignant, but scared of what it could do if I allowed it to remain and continue growing on my spine . . . just as any obstacle or fear we allow to remain in our path and block us from having the life we truly deserve.


Yes, the doctor removed that cyst from my spine Monday morning, and now I can move forward with my life without that extra 'lump' on my back. My energy level is being restored more and more now I am taking better care of myself . . . so watch out world!!


The outpouring of love and prayers I've received from all of you are just part of all the blessings I've gained since I made the decision to have that lump removed. The lessons I have learned have been amazing, and all prove what is truly important in life.


The prayer which follows is my thank you gift for all the prayers, the care, and the true concern you sent my way.


By the way, Theresa is the name I selected when I was confirmed . . . and those of you who know me well know roses are my favorite flower and know how roses continue to play such a critical role in my life.


Saint Therese is known as the Saint of the Little Ways. She believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love. She is also the patron Saint of flower growers and florists. She is represented by roses.


May everyone be blessed who receives this message.


St. Theresa's Prayer:
May today there be peace within.

May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you ...

May you be content knowing you are a child of God . . .

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of you.


Keep singing, keep dancing, keep loving, and keep living every day and every moment as though it were your last . . .

Life is given to us to enjoy all the riches and blessings that constantly flow our way . . .

Truly open your eyes and look with your heart . . . you'll be amazed at all the beauty and the riches that surround you.

Vol. 1 #7 - Success Tips from the Masters

by Carol Pierce ?2004

Have just returned from Phoenix and the national convention of the National Speakers Association with lots of lagniappe (Cajun for 'something extra") to share with you. Some are from sessions I attended, hosted, or facilitated. Others are from being observant to what was around me.

May these pieces of wisdom from internationally recognized experts help you get what you really want. Here goes:


1. Seth Godin, author of Purple Cow, the IdeaVirus - "What makes you remarkable? . . . What's your 'purple cow'?"

(George, the 'purple cow' I suggested for your agency to help solve a problem of mine and many others while increasing your value to your clients . . . As I was working out in the health club at the J. W. Marriott Desert Ridge, on came a tv commercial for an agency incorporating that very idea. Now we need to create a new 'purple cow'!)


2. Alan Weiss, author of Million Dollar Consulting - "Stand tall for the value you provide . . . Don't settle!"

(Patrick, prior to his session, I mentioned to Alan how just one of the strategies you employed from Million Dollar Consulting has already generated such positive results for you. He really appreciated hearing that.)


3. Terry Savage, author of the Savage Truth on Money and first woman trader on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange - "Women need to invest in long term care insurance because they outlive men and need to be financially independent, regardless of their relationship status."


4. Dick Bruso, branding expert and creative marketing consultant (and outgoing chair of the Writers Professional Expert Group, a record-breaking session I was honored to host) - "Am I really passionate about my career, (my book, my . . . whatever you do)?"

5. Pam Lontos, publicity agent and owner of PR/PR whose clients appear in media ranging from Wall Street Journal to CNN and US News & World Report all the way to Cosmopolitan and Parents - "You must create top of the mind awareness."


6. Joe Calloway, branding consultant and author of Becoming a Category of One - "Success means letting go of what used to work!" (Hmmm . . . how are you letting go???????)

7. Drew Miller, marketing maverick, author of The Secret to Creative Marketing, and winner of over 100 awards for his image-building concepts (I was honored to co-host Drew Miller's session with Cathy Harris) - "Creativity is looking at one thing and seeing another . . . A creative person is one who mixes existing elements into a new or different arrangement."


8. Success Strategist Carol Pierce, author of Jump Now, Look Later (yes, me!), "Fire and water can combine to create a very unique, breath-taking piece of beauty." One of the many beautiful fountains at the J.W. Marriott Desert Ridge proves that concept . . . stop by to see it when you're in the Phoenix area. (Yes, Wendy, that's the answer to your question we both knew I'd discover at the convention.)


9. Master Mind Session on Re-inventing: Creating New Business Models to Reflect Today's Changing World, which I co-facilitated with Elizabeth Jeffries Tweed, "For true success, you must be willing to risk and to stretch to the next level by retaining the best of the past as you move forward into the future." (How are you stretching to the next level?)

10. Scott Friedman, incoming NSA president, "Enjoy the Journey!"


How do you plan to use these words of wisdom to achieve more of the success you truly want?
