#278: Building a Foundation for Success

A Solid Beginning for a Solid Future

If you want to build anything (life, business, success, marriage, relationships, etc.), it is imperative for you to lay down a proper foundation in accordance with the structure you plan to build.

My father-in-law spent over 20 years as a professional homebuilder and he took great pride in the quality and surety of the foundations upon which he built his houses. Foundations are critical in the success of a build.

I often think about the massive skyscrapers erected in cities around the world. Careful planning comes in play as a foundation is meticulously engineered to support the building or structure to be constructed upon it.

Why should our lives be any different?

In today’s feature presentation, I’m going to share how you can engineer, construct, and lay a foundation for success, prosperity, and happiness, that will stand the test of time.

How the “B-Word” Affects Your Life

One topic I talk about often is belief. I share it on my podcast, I write about it, I talk about it on my Monday Mastery videos.

My premise and focus is this: What a person’s mind can believe, it can achieve.

If you believe something deeply enough in your heart, if you confidently believe you can accomplish, can be, can become, can write, can do, can have, etc., there is something about the power of another dimension (in my case, I believe it comes from heaven) that comes alongside and puts wind in your sail.

This dimension puts the capacity and the ability in your hands to perform at levels you never dreamed possible. BUT, you have to believe.

I am a believer.

Throughout the centuries, there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.

#277: Monday Mastery – Discipline & Systems

Success Factor #8


Welcome to our video blog and Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader Podcast with Brian Holmes! Each Monday, we provide a video & podcast audio segment designed to encourage, motivate, challenge, and develop you as a leader and influencer.

We’re unpacking the eighth of 12 factors that determine success, which is implementing discipline and systems. Is the execution of tasks, goals, or projects one of your strengths? One thing that helps to have discipline or structure come a little easier is to have the right systems and the right team members in place. Discipline and systems are not only important, they’re critical. Let me encourage you on how to get them both in your life and business today!

Watch the video or download and listen to our audio file as well. Join us every Monday for a new Monday Mastery Edition of our Strategic Leader podcast, and every Thursday (beginning again in September) for a new in-depth episode.

#276: The Strategic Living Podcast is BACK!

And Better Than Ever!


Strategic Living Podcast

If you are a long-time listener, or you’re just now discovering the program, we are thrilled to have you here with us!

During the last few months while we worked on rebranding and reworking not only our podcast but our overarching goals and business plans, we took a hiatus from our Thursday podcast episodes. Today is the day of our return, and I am so happy to be back in the saddle!

On today’s program, I want to give you a preview of what is ahead and share what the podcast is going to look like moving forward.

Buckle up, everyone. It’s …The all-new STRATEGIC LIVING PODCAST!

The Power Of Saying Yes

yes power

Every promotion in life comes as a result of saying yes to opportunity. You can’t rise to a new level of financial gain, influence, or leadership without first saying yes to an opportunity you’re presented with.

Saying yes requires us to believe, in spite of the lack of facts or the lack of evidence or the lack of data. It requires us to step into the unknown. God never invites you on a journey you have already figured out.

Saying yes means being fully committed to the path, no matter what it may cost you. Saying yes means trusting your heavenly Father is going to give you what you need each day. It means going all in. It means risking it all. It means trusting the outcome is not something you can manufacture, but has been predetermined by your creator. If you’ll simply trust the process, you will get to the destination.

Two days and counting!

It was a little break to reformat, refine, and re-launch the Thursday edition podcast.

And now… We’re going to be BACK in two days!

This coming Thursday, tune in for more great content, more surprise features, and more of the talk you need to hear.

Thursday, September 14th – The Strategic Living Podcast returns!
