You know the joy you feel when you are so passionate about your “why” that you can’t wait to wake up and jump right into life? That motivation will get you started, but to be able to follow through, you need the Habits that will help you place one foot in front of the other when things get tough.

Author, Steve Samblis spent years searching the world for the most successful people on the planet. He got to know them and asked them each “What was the one most crucial habit in your life that has made the most significant impact on your success.” He then took these 100 Habits and put them into a book called 1 Habit.

Not only does the 1 Habit contain the Habits, but it also teaches you how to make a Habit part of who you are. Make it part of your being. Once instilled in you, the Habits becomes something you just automatically now do, and that automates your pathway to success.

The Journey

Christian Strategies to Reach your Personal, Professional and Spiritual Destiny

A Life Manual: In our book, The Journey, we have provided a “Life Manual” to help readers establish the right priorities of life—God, Family and Career. We have written a book not about religion, but rather one that speaks to the spiritual dimension that is a part of every facet of life.

Get the God Connection: We begin the book with what we call the “God-connection” to help fill the spiritual void and separation from God that even the holiest of holy go through. Our first priority then is to never forget the consistent presence of God who is always at our beck and call—if we initiate the contact.

Make the Family Connection: The second priority is making the “Family-connection.” We share many “how-to’s” to help readers create a strong marital relationship. (Jodi and Billy represent over 90 years of marriage.) We also have a generous amount of information on raising children. These ideas proved to be so sound that a local church included them as part of their parenting classes.

Let “Work” Work for You: Our third order of priority is the “Work connection.” If you are looking for ways to grow your career, find satisfaction with your work and make a positive impact on the job, you will find many techniques to accomplish all three. Read and apply, and we promise good things will happen with your career and your life. We close the book with a number of success strategies to apply throughout the process of working with these priorities.

Become the Best Version of Yourself: 21 Undeniable Lessons to Create the Life You Want

21 Undeniable Lessons to Create the Life You Want

Too many people underachieve. Sometimes they recognize this condition but, most often, it’s a hidden factor in their life. They settle for a “less than” opportunity to be their best self. We compare ourselves to others and deflate the air out of our sails. Instead, you need to forget the outside competition. Your competition instead should focus on your performance. Whatever that is, that becomes your level of excellence. But, it can always be more!!
Self-competition gives us the level of excellence we possess. Inertia holds us back. We brace, anchor our feet, and settle for less than our abilities can produce. Using the lessons from this book, readers now have a template and strategy to raise their level of excellence and move closer to becoming the best version of themselves.

Use this book to evaluate your success potential. Be real! Be honest! Don’t settle for a lesser version. Dig in and push forward with all the energy and abilities you have. Seek the support of others.
Our natural tendency is to “hold back” a bit almost afraid to stretch and risk. Just a little more pushing of our abilities help us cross the finish line. The 21 lessons in this book are life-changing. Time-tested techniques challenge readers with a process to bring greater success to every facet of their life.
