You’ve Already Won!

You start your day as a winner!  You have already won the day! And in this week’s Wednesdays With Wayne, I’ll challenge you to hold onto that feeling!   Because you organized your week on Sunday and last night you reviewed your day ahead, you already know what you get to do today.

Mania and Trust

Wow!  Okay, so it’s July 4th and you might expect something Independence related.  In reality, ALL OF MY WRITING IS ABOUT FREEDOM. You are here to get just a little more personal freedom.   Two very different thoughts for you in today’s Wednesdays With Wayne: There seems to be a misconception that High Performance equates to manic activity.  In fact, …

The Magic of Shifting Perspective!

Problems!  This Wednesdays With Wayne looks at how you handle problems.  Let’s start by looking at them. If you took inventory right now, how many problems would you say you have?   Are you buried by them?  Or are you curious and engaged, even energized by them?  While I’m not suggesting that you find a mental space of such bliss …

Permission To Be More YOU

People ask me where my topics come from for writing Wednesdays With Wayne every week.  They come from you!  When I get questions or see themes emerge in the private clients I work with, I’ve just GOT to make sure this hits your conscious thought process, too.   “I guess I was just following the rules and didn’t give myself …

False Urgency

You’re pushing to get it all done again, aren’t you? Yeah… it’s mid-year and there are tons of reasons (or excuses) why you’re pushing so hard.  There’s all that stuff that has been on your “to-do” list.

Is this you? I try to have empathy. And at the same time, I really want …

Shedding Your Values Wooly Willy Style

This process of Dynamic Transitions is dear to my heart as my book by the same name became a #1 International Best Seller (Get It Here).  One of the core foci within the pages is the notion of identifying your values.

You’re A Good Person, but…

You have a responsibility.   You’re a good person AND you’re probably not showing up as big as you could be.  When was the last time you took your “Good-ness” to the next level? I’m not saying you have to brag about it.  It’s just that I think we all could be that much better to other humans. In this …

Maintaining Greatness

You’re pretty darn good at what you do.  The people who read my blog are, and you’re here.  That means that you’ve gotten to a level of success, you’ve pushed, and you’ve made a difference.   Welcome to Wednesdays With Wayne!  Here you’ll look at some key elements to keep you ahead of the game.  The biggest thing to remember: …

Your Deliberate Accident

Here’s something that could kill you – it’s known as the phenomenon of putting your attention on something so that it increases the likelihood of colliding with that thing. This week’s Wednesdays With Wayne focuses on Target Fixation (see what I did there?).   The phenomenon is so powerful that professional riders and racecar drivers are taught to focus on …
