Motivational Quote Of The Day

It is in your moments on INdecision that your dreams are destroyed — Dr Marc Dussault As you must know by now, Exponential Mindset Thinking focuses on the positive, optimistic perspective. That being said, every once in a while, directing our attention to the “negative” can have positive benefits. For example, this quote came to […]

Attitude versus aptitude

“Success is not determined by attitude, but rather aptitude.” — Dr Marc Dussault

Hyperbolic Discounting: Why most people don’t succeed

I can tell you that without a doubt, hyperbolic discounting has to be one of the primary contributors to non-success. Given two similar rewards, humans show a preference for one that arrives sooner rather than later. Humans are said to discount the value of the later reward, by a factor that increases with the length […]

Not everyone should be a champion

For the past few weeks, I have been blogging and emailing about Champion Mindset strategies applied to business and then it hit me – not everyone should be a champion. I don’t say this frivolously, I’m totally serious. Not everyone should be a champion. Champions want opponents who push them to become the best they […]

Practice does not make perfect…

I remember the first time I heard this, in my teens. “Practice does not make perfect… Perfect practices makes perfect!” Once I understood that it’s only when we practice what we want to re-create can we claim to be practicing “perfectly”… But it took me close to 10 years before I resolved the recursive (circular) […]

Exponential Thinking

An old gentleman lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison at New Jersey State Prison in Trenton, NJ. The old man wrote a letter to his […]

Why Smart Business People Fail

In a previous blog post, I touched on several foundational concepts that can help you to go from establishing motivation to creating momentum. Today, I want to focus on the catalyst, the initial trigger(s) that can help you start the process. First and foremost, to get moving, you need to overcome inertia. Inertia is defined […]

Lack of resources?

“Whenever you face a deficit in resources, you need to replenish your inventory of ideas.” — Dr Marc Dussault  

From Motivation To Momentum

I am a huge fan of inspirational quotes and motivation messages, especially those that make you stop, think and re-assess where you are, where you are going or who you are and who you want to become. Without getting into too much existentialist psycho-self-analysis, this simple quote can be a life-changer if you take the […]

How to leverage testimonials and case studies in a retail shop

This is a BRILLIANT example of a retail shop that knows the value of testimonials and “case studies”… It is so good, it’s self-explanatory!

Victims and Martyrs

In my line of work, I come across a wide range of people in many different situations and circumstances. Today’s post is about a cry for help from someone who is in dire need of assistance. But here’s the thing that I make clear to people, especially those in the healthcare and holistic therapy sectors […]

This TED TALK video is an example of the concept of finding hidden assets in your business BY CHALLENGING preconceived thoughts and ideas. In this video, Terry Moore challenges you on how […]

Open 25 Hours

As you know, I am a proponent of Antimimeticisomorphism. This is an example of that kinf of out-of-the-ordinary thinking. This is a sign for a convenience store in Surfer’s Paradise on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. If you come across across examples like this – people doing out-of-the-ordinary things to create extra-ordinary results, please […]

Running Room – Outstanding customer service

Every once in a while* someone does something so out-of-the-ordinary that you have to do something about it. In this instance, it started about 3 years ago when I walked into a Runner’s retail shop called Running Room. First of all, this was in Richmond, Vancouver, Canada.  Well Steveston if you want to be specific […]

The duality of English/French Canada and what it means to you as an Australian

I recently spent a week in my hometown of Montreal. It’s in the French province of Quebec in eastern Canada. Ignoring the separatist Quebec issues and constitutional legal wrangling involved, the linguistic and cultural duality of Canada was something I took for granted when I grew up and lived there. This recent visit was the […]

Online and offline advertising: The Double Whammy

Does combining offline and online mean double the costs or double the profits? That’s a perplexing question that baffles many small business owners and independent retailers. What works for multinational corporations with deep pockets doesn’t work for small businesses with shoe-string budgets. Even though today’s empowered consumers expect to interact with brands across a wide […]

Is Your Business Growing?

Sydney’s Private Jeweler, Sam Kritsotakis, recently opened his new Eskae Boutique in Mosman… The reason that’s newsworthy is because a lot of businesses are struggling, yet our clients are thriving and expanding. The reason is simple. They are applying antimimeticisomorphism principles of Exponential Mindset Thinking – having fun, doing out–of-the-ordinary things that create extra-ordinary results […]

Lead Generation For Small Business

Across Italy, police are cracking down on Ferrari and Lamborghini drivers, but not because they are driving too fast. Italy, like so much of southern Europe, is drowning in debt, so police are pursuing drivers to make sure they are declaring – and therefore paying taxes on – earnings that would allow them to afford […]

Bacteria – Natural Mastermind Groups?!?!?

That weird-looking picture on the left is of bacteria – the organisms that play an essential role in our lives.  Bacteria help us digest food, eliminate toxins from our body, and provide us with vital nutrients.  And yet these tiny creatures, responsible for so much good stuff on the planet (and lots of bad stuff, […]
