New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s Resolution by Fred Shadian

A favorite saying of mine goes like this:
“The tragedy in life is not what we can’t do,
but what we don’t know we can do.”

What is one thing you have always wanted to do but you don’t because you fear you won’t succeed?
How will you ever know unless you go out there and test it out.

Every year I set a New Year’s Resolution to learn a new skill.
It could be learning how to play checkers at a mastery level, understanding HTML & WordPress, how to become a long distant runner, walking everyday, fly a kite, ride a bike, learn how to meditate, learn martial arts, how to play a musical instrument, eating healthier
and this year I want to learn how to play GOLF at a peak level.

We all have greatness within us and when we ignite that greatness, we awaken the fire within.
We are able to do and become greater than we ever thought we could.
The key is to remember that feeling, acknowledge it and utilize it for new skills you are about to learn.

So what is something you always wanted to learn or become?
Start right now by doing a quick Wikipedia search on the subject.

Whenever I decide to learn or master a new skill, I experience some challenging moments as I progress through the core fundamentals.
The JOY of learning slowly overpowers the frustration and procrastination of learning something new.
Gradually it becomes a daily habit and then it becomes a lifestyle.

The Godfather of public speaking Nido Qubein by Fred Shadian

I will be spending the next two days at an exclusive symposium with the godfather of public speaking Nido Qubein.  It is being held at High Point University, of which he happens to be the current president.

This is one of many high profile positions he is involved with.  For more, check www. Nidoqubein.com


While there, I’ll be tweeting about what I am learning and the wisdom of Nido Qubein.

Here are a few gems:

“Most people tend to shrink their dreams to match their incomes” – Nido Qubein

“If You’re Not Earning All You Want, Change the Way You’re Doing

Business” – Nido Qubein

Nice quotes….. How exactly do you do that?

Stay tuned for the update 🙂

“Take the first step toward your success journey” – Fred Shadian

“Take the first step toward your success journey”


So having a positive mental image and the physical energy to pursue your outcome is very important.

When in doubt, begin by breathing correctly, mentally rehearse your outcome, eat vibrant food, drink good water, go for a walk or do some exercise, and surround yourselves with like-minded people.

Take 10 minutes to watch this powerful video of Will Smith sharing his success wisdom, he is the best of the best positive action taker person in the world.

“The Arabian Desert Bedouin” by Fred Shadian

There is a wonderful story that I used to enjoy when I was a kid called


“The Arabian Desert Bedouin”.


An elder desert Bedouin wished to visit a friend who lived in a far away land.  The Bedouin did not have a camel or a horse nor did he have a magic carpet.  He was a very poor man. One day he decided to begin his journey on foot. It took him weeks and weeks of traveling through the deserts, climbing the mountains, crossing the rivers and avoiding the bandits but at long last he reached his destination and arrived at his friend’s house. His friend was overjoyed to see him.


Welcome! Welcome!  How did you manage to get here by yourself?

The Bedouin said:  “I took the first step towards my journey and didn’t look back. I just kept moving and was looking forward to seeing you and your family.”

This is a wonderful story to remember when we are inspired to act yet hesitate to take the necessary action.

Leadership Series: September Book review by Fred Shadian

Here is my September Book Review

Last week i placed an online order to purchase the “Leadership Series- Volume 1, 2,3,4 and 5” by Torkom Saraydarian (1917 – 1997).  He is one of my favorite Ageless Wisdom Metaphysical writers of all time.

Well, the five books are here and it feels like i just received an inspirational Christmas present from “Santa” Torkom.

The book is jam-packed with golden nuggets.  Just to give you an idea of the depth of this book, the below paragraph is on page 36 of Leadership, Volume 1.

This is an excerpt from Leadership Series – Volume 1

(479 pages), published 1995 by T.S.G. Publishing Foundation, Inc.

“That is why if you have vision, you are creative.

When you have energy circulation, you have continuous and ever-expanding source of inspiration and impressions from higher sources. Thus, you elevate and sublimate yourself through contacting energies coming continuously from higher sources.

One must have a vision.

If you do not know what you are going to be, then you are going to be nothing. You become a human being because you stove for the vision of a human being. You become an artist because you had the vision to be an artist. Whatever you are now, that was the accomplishment of your past vision; and what-ever you will be in the future is based on the vision that you build in the present.

Try to have a vision of being something that is for service of humanity.

Immediately when you create a vision, you are caught in the whirlpool of the vision. The vision will pick you up like an eagle. If you have a vision from which you cannot escape even if you try, you have a real vision. Vision is the vehicle of your Higher Self, and once the Higher Self has a means to contact you, you will never be the same.”

Enjoy creating your Vision for your Present Future.
