Get your notepads ready. The UFC welterweight champ has just revealed the same pre-fight ritual he’s executed en route to becoming the baddest 170-pounder to ever live. And some of these secrets can help anyone in any industry do more, and have better results.

Sure 23,152 screaming Canadians inside the Bell Centre in Montreal and millions more watching across the globe saw GSP’s stand-up clinic at UFC 124, but until now, only those within his trimmed-down inner circle have witnessed what it takes for him to perform when the lights come on.

In an exclusive pre-game interview with MMAConnected, St-Pierre discusses his mentality behind isolating himself from non-Team GSP members as game time approaches

Fans caught a glimpse of how important visualization was during the 29-year-old’s tenu...

When it comes to helping people improve their lives there is nobody in the game with stronger credentials than Tony Robbins. The “Michael Jordan” of thought leaders, Tony has affected millions of people around the world through his performance coaching.

 While everyone is preparing their objectives and to-do lists for 2012, I thought I would first start with the key moments of truth I experienced in 2011. Upon reflection, I came up with three.

Content Remains King
Nothing earth shattering here but an important concept to keep in mind as we race to be the most creative, the most innovative and the one that really stands out. We can do all of that but if our content isn’t relevant and engaging, we will sell no widgets.

Coolest Title of the Year – CCEO
Chief Customer Experience Officer seems to be the new “C Suite” title as I met a few in 2011...

there are no limitations

Napoleon Hill was a great man and a quality thinker. This Quote of his is SO important for Business. It has such a strong element of truth, that once learned, creates massive growth in a business.

He gave a 45-minute concert of some of the most challenging music ever composed. The experiment was to see what would happen.

Just before this, Bell had given a concert in DC where he sold out the building and decent seats cost $100, so imagine what the front rows went for. Now this same amazing man was free for all to hear in the subway. More than 1,000 people would hear him play that day. How many would stop and listen to him for free, or even drop a tiny donation?

Before I give the conclusion to this story, I want to ask you how...

Baby boomers, the housing market is in your hands.

Out of a population of 34.6 million, Canada has roughly 10 million people who were born between 1946 and 1965. This massive boomer cohort started turning 65 this year.
