10 Lessons Life Has Taught Me
By Robin Sharma
#1. Givers versus takers always win (even when they think they don’t).
#2. Dream 20x bigger because at the end you’ll have wished you did.
#3. Doing work that wows is a massive source of pride, happiness and self-fulfilment.
#4. The hours we waste today we’ll miss in the future.
#5. Success is so much more than just money. It has to do with what reaching a huge goal makes of you. It has to do with inspiring people by your excellence. It has to do with producing value that serves many. And it has to do with making your mark on the generations who’ll follow you.
#6. Adversity is a servant of your growth, progress and talent expression. Embrace it’s gifts and thank it’s lessons.
#7. Health is a crown on the well person’s head that only the sick person can see (told to me by a participant at one of my events).
#8. Investing in books, courses, conferences and powerful learning returns your investment 100x. Success adores the lifelong learner.
#9. The humblest is the greatest (and the quietest).
#10. Being polite, decent and loving will always serve you incredibly well.
Robin Sharma is one of my favorite authors. You will be happy you with the time you take to read his books.
“Your Success Is My Business”
Hear what this young lady says about what she wants to do. Notice she has a vision of this experience. Look at every success story and you will see it. At numerous points they were scared. So what drove them? Their knowing they are doing what they were intended to do.
I am personally drawn to the singers like this one. You will find the same formula in every walk of life. You will find it in a grocery store, a restaurant, your neighborhood – you will find it with executives and parents who devote a great portion of their time to their children. You will find it in teachers, police officers, military. Yes you will find it in every place there are people. The it is the person who knows they are doing what they were meant to be doing at that point in time and are scared about how well they will do. They move past that and do it and world is a better place because of them.
Confidence Success Blueprint does not mean you are not scared. It does not mean that you know all the steps. It means you know you will figure it out.
Watch both videos. Notice what is happening for the second one – a mentor Just Sayin I look forward to your comments
Very powerful lessons. Be sure to see the examples of what he says he has done to change his confidence in fact Anthony Robbins demonstrates how he stays in a state of certainty which is the ultimate level of confidence.
May you success exceed your most amazing dreams and desires.

May you success exceed your most amazing dreams and desires.
It’s quiet. It’s early. My coffee is hot. The sky is still black. The
world is still asleep. The day is coming. In a few moments the day will
arrive. It will roar down the track with the rising of the sun. The
stillness of the dawn will be exchanged for the noise of the day. The
calm of the solitude will be replaced by the pounding pace of the human
The refuge of the early morning will be invaded by decisions to be
made and deadlines to be met. For the next twelve hours I will be
exposed to the day’s demands. It is now that I must make a choice.
I’m free to choose. And so I choose.
I choose love…
No occasion justifies hatred; no injustice warrants bitterness. I choose
love. Today I will love God and what God loves.
I choose joy…
I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the
temptation to be cynical… the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse
to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will
refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.
I choose peace…
I will live forgiven. I will forgive so that I may live.
I choose patience…
I will overlook the inconveniences of the world. Instead of cursing the
one who takes my place, I will invite him to do so. Rather than complain
that the wait is too long, I will thank God for a moment to pray.
Instead of clenching my fists at new assignments,
I will face them with joy and courage.
I choose kindness…
I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone. I will be kind to the
rich for they are afraid. And kind to the unkind for
that is how God has treated me.
I choose goodness…
I will go without a dollar before I take a dishonest one. I will be
overlooked before I boast. I will confess before I accuse.
I choose goodness.
I choose faithfulness… Today I will keep my promises. My debtors will
not regret their trust. My associates will not question my word. My partner
will not question my love. And my child/children will never fear that their
father will not be there for them.
I choose gentleness…
Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may
it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If
I make a demand, may it be only of myself.
I choose self-control… I am a spiritual being. After this body is
dead, my spirit will soar. I refuse to let this body that will cease, rule the
eternal. I choose self-control. I will be drunk only by joy. I will be
impassioned only by my faith. I will be influenced only by God. I will
be taught only by Christ. I choose self-control.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control. To these I commit my day. If I succeed, I
will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek His grace. And then, when this
day is done, I will place my head on my pillow and rest
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long~suffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance.
Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22~23

4.Go Around It
The only way to deal with this fear is to confront. Confront does not mean fight. It means to look at the problem and arrive at a practical solution. In this example it is obvious the Black Panther is tame otherwise why would it be sitting on the steps of the building where you live or work. (My interpretation)
(Meir Ezra taught me the Black Panther example – plus much more)
Confronting our Fears Takes Confidence and Courage
Look at the situation in the US. Right now Obamacare is at the forefront and there is a lot of political shows going on about it. Obama is a master of deflection. There huge domestic and international issues that are on the sidelines because everyone is talking about Obamacare
Talking But Not Confronting
1. The National Debt – non confront
2 Obamacare – non confonrt
3. NSA spying – non confront.
4. Benghazi – non confront
1. Declining personal income and wealth – non confront
2. Declining personal liberty and freedom – non confront
3. Declining quality of formal education – non confront.
What Is The Solution?
There are several options:
My preference is to call for a constitutional convention. My page “An Open Letter To Gov. Rick Scott” offers an outline to proceed and an example of what can be sent to the Governors in other states. Click Here to see this letter
Another option is to call for the impeachment of Obama. I thought about this and what is behind him is even more of a train wreck so I am not sure this is viable as a solution.
Outside of a constitution convention, our best hope is for the media to wake up to the train wreck and that may be happening. The media didn’t really pick up on Benghazi, the NSA scandal, the IRS scandal, or even the cause of the national debt. But the media is taking notice of Obamacare. I suspect it is because the health care premiums are hitting them in the pocketbook. When the media confronts all politicians not in alignment with their responsibility to govern according to the road map of our original constitution are affected and most will lose re-election.
What are your ideas? Please comment!
While all of this is gong on most of us are doing what we can to take care of ourselves and others. I am fortunate to work with people who are achieving a growing level of success everyday. All of us need to continue to focus on what we individually can do now for our households and others in need while voicing our support for governmental infrastructure reform.
May you success exceed your most amazing dreams and desires.
PS A Great Book on Fear – the opposite of Confidence is The 50th Law by Robert Greene and 50 Cent
Meir Ezra Says : Share What I Teach You – Literally All of It! “Once You Have The Knowledge It Is Your Responsibility To Share” ! How many teachers, seminar leaders, authors, that you know say that? To be clear we are not talking about using copyrighted material without permission and acknowledgement. With that said:
Very recently one of the people in attendance at a two day event led by Meir Ezra posted her notes from the event on her blog. I thought wow that is really an accurate presentation of what Meir taught for two days. I copied it because she had great notes – better than the ones I had taken and I am a detailed event note taker. Then I wondered if it was too much. My mind was quickly settled when I not only read Meir complementing her work but also fueling the distribution of her work by sharing it with his on line network.
What Has Steve Pohlit Learned from Meir Ezra That Results in Steve Having The Confidence To Be Part of The Results Guaranteed Program?
Let me tell you a story – a true story. Some of you reading this know me and my background very well. Those who don’t let me save you some time: as you connect with me you will find me taking a lot of material I have already published and linking it to the latest information that I am going to begin sharing with you here. So forget about all that I have done and focus on as what Eddie Murphy says in Raw – “What Have You Done for Me Lately?” I don’t recommend that movie for a family pizza night – that is another article on another blog.
Back to the point: As a businessman and coach I need to deliver every day. It does not matter what I have done or achieved in the past. However, with my rather extensive background I had been somewhat concerned by some of the emails I received recently from Meir in response to my coaching reports sent to him. Yes he actually reads them and listens to my calls. So I said to him, I am obviously missing something so please help me understand. He essentially said “yes you are missing some things and let’s schedule a meeting” I have attended those “let’s schedule a meeting” meetings in the past and they have rarely turned out well. However with my experience I was ready for any possible outcome.
I Was Not Ready For The Outcome of This Meeting
It started with Meir Ezra’s very consistent sincere “how are you” Knowing what we agreed to focus on during this meeting on I chose to simply say “good” which was mostly true. We proceeded to the most awesome two hours of discussion with me being coached. The last time I remember a close to awe inspiring experience was when I was working as an executive for a major company owned by a huge LBO firm owned by billionaires. They mentored me. I should have listened more carefully. I am not repeating that mistake.
LR Report-Name- Want -Get – Is What I Learned And Absolutely Locks In For Me The Confidence In Saying “If We Accept You In Our Program, We Guarantee The Results We Mutually Agree Upon”!
Name Want Get so simple and very close to what I actually had been using with coaching students in the past yet didn’t really get it. Didn’t know how the data defined conditions and of course now I know the formula for conditions.
Am I Confident?
I am beyond confident – I know! The clients I work with can tell I am on fire about their success. They are on fire with wanting to move forward. I am getting calls at night and on weekends from clients saying “we have a deal we must call Steve” I drop everything to help our clients take the knowledge to the action to the deal to the results.

How to Build Unstoppable Self Confidence Even If Everything is Going Against You
Do you know what self-confidence means?
What do think it takes to get it? If you feel hopeless and think everyone is better off than you, you’re in the right place. You will understand why you have inferior thoughts about yourself and how to remedy that.
Imagine that you feel great about yourself and you have a wonderful sense of belonging. Where you know that you can accomplish anything in this life, there is nothing you cannot do.
I have had amazing success and devastating loss. I know what they both feel like and for me the balance of feeling good about myself and knowing I belong on this planet and why, has given me the most sincere form of self confidence I have ever experienced.
If you are wondering how I arrived at this point I would have to say it has been a combination of many different experiences. For me I had to discover myself. Find out who Dawn Abraham really is and what do I want from life.
Does Soul-Searching Lead to Self Confidence?
I had to experience some soul searching for a lack of a better word. How true that statement is. I did discover my soul and a whole lot more. You want to get in touch with that higher portion of yourself, within that is absolute freedom and self confidence.
When I set out on this journey, I had no idea I would get a complete sense of self. I knew one thing; I did not want to experience insecurity any more. I did not want to feel as if I was always trying to please everyone. To know I have a purpose in life and to feel at home here on earth was my aspiration. I was searching for that feeling. If that is what you are searching for pull up a chair.
Did I find it? Yes! I did find it. Do you know why? I really wanted it more then anything in the world. I really wanted to feel at peace with me and with you. If you want something enough you will get it, that I promise you whether you like it or not!
The Connection is the Bridge I Used to Discover my Self Confidence.
It comes from the connection to all that is. The feeling that I am apart of everything in the Universe is a feeling so strong I know it from the depths of my being. That feeling takes away your fear. How can you be afraid of anything when you are everything? If you are one with the universe, everything will always be wonderful, in a profound beautiful way.
It seems to me that everyone is searching for that feeling, in one way or another that is what we all want. In order for me to get to that place spiritually, I had to slow down. I had to slow way down.
I had to STOP. I had to get willing to really look at myself. I let go of the things, people, and situations in my life that weren’t moving in a forward direction. If you want to move forward, it’s a good idea to do a good housecleaning and dump all the people that suck the life out of you.
Digging Deep for the Courage that Boosts Self Confidence
I had to be willing to let go of anything that was holding me down. I’m letting you know that it wasn’t comfortable. I felt an attachment to all of those people and those things. I used them as crutches without realizing it. Even though I may have put myself in situations or life styles that were uncomfortable at least I knew what to expect.
The idea of changing all of that took courage. Finding that courage to let go of the people and things in my life that no longer served me, really supported me to become self confidant Knowing that I cared enough about myself to make those difficult adjustments to say the least, developed my self esteem and gave me a sense of empowerment.
Empowerment Equals Self Confidence
Knowing that I have choices felt incredible to me just realizing that I didn’t have to stay in that suffocating relationship or that over demanding career.
While I’m in those situations, it does not occur to me that I have made a choice to stay in that career or relationship. Once I was aware of that, I could then make another choice. Different choices, ones that give me power and allow me to create my life and not react to it.
That is true empowerment when you realize that you and you alone are responsible for your life. I had to look at my life and say I created this. I don’t like it, now I’m going to create something I do like. I am going to create something I love!
You’re confidence will go up 100 percent if you stop and take a look at what choices you are relaying on and realize you have the power to make different ones at anytime.
Ask yourself…”why am I stuck?” “What is the pay off for me?” If you’re still in it, look to see what the payoff is. Allow yourself to see the situation differently. Realize you can take your power back at anytime it’s never too late.
That is the beginning of the road to building a healthy self confidence and a strong relationship with you.
Share what you think about self confidence.
