Raise Your Line
Seeking Excellence Publishing
January 01, 2015
Raise Your Line is a must read for anyone who wants to succeed in today’s competitive business world. This book is filled with information to help employees, business owners, leaders, and managers who are looking for better ways to move forward and progress towards a more successful future. In this book, Mr. Stevenson walks readers step by step, through how to improve their business performance, leadership skills, and reach their career goals.

Mr. Stevenson gives countless practical and thought provoking insights on how to succeed in this highly competitive business environment. Throughout his book, he emphasizes points which are extremely important to success, by placing them in a box entitled “LINE RAISER” (there are over 100 of them in the book). Not only does he identify and explain the things readers should work on improving, he then tells them how.

A small fragment upon an endless line represents the time you have on earth.
Your line may be short or long and it starts at your birth.
Your line can be uneventful, a dull and boring straight line,
or it can rise, and rise again, marking good decisions on your timeline.
The time will come when you are gone and all that is left is your line.
To make it stand out from all the rest, you must keep it rising all the time.

Pocketful of Tweets on SUccess
Seeking Excellence Publishing
January 01, 2015
I have found that sometimes it just takes one quote, one thought, one phrase that will serve as a spark to get you on a path to success. I have also found in this fast paced world, people want all the clutter removed when it comes to getting the answer; people don't want a lot of commentary because they simply don't have the time.

So, keeping those points in mind, I decided to write a Get-to-the-Point, Cut-to-the-Chase, Give-it-to-me-Fast book on practical principles that are short and to-the-point. I also decided to write each quote in the form of a Tweet (140 characters or less) so they could easily be shared via Twitter. In keeping each principle in Twitter format, you may find that my grammar or punctuation isn't perfect, but my message is still able to be understood, and that is all that matters.

I hope you will find my Pocketful of Tweets on Success both insightful and helpful on your journey towards reaching your full potential. You must understand that your only true security in life is your personal ability to perform. These principles are sure ways to help you succeed in this ever-changing, highly competitive world we live in.

52 Essential Habits for Succcess
Seeking Excellence Publishing
January 01, 2010
Robert Stevenson is the best-selling author of How to Soar Like an Eagle in a World Full of Turkeys. In his new book, 52 Essential Habits for Success, he has identified and created a sure-fire, simple method of how to incorporate those habits into your daily life.
There have been some excellent books written which have addressed the topic of success in great detail. Many of them have outstanding suggestions of what one should do to be successful, but they still don’t seem to help: So, where is the disconnect? What’s wrong with most self-help books is that they are just too difficult to implement. In most cases, after a person reads the book, they have every intention of following through with the suggestions made by the author. However, life happens and the readers become distracted with all the steps they must take, lists they must write and self-analysis they must ponder to help them become a better person. Even those who have really good intentions become overwhelmed with all the things the author said “they must do” if they are to become successful. So instead of mapping out a total plan of action you probably won't adhere to, Mr. Stevenson’s book triggers your powerful subconscious mind to help you become a much more talented, motivated, productive, and successful individual.
The beauty of his method is in its simplicity.
It is estimated that the subconscious mind functions at almost thirty thousand times the speed of our conscious mind. Mr. Stevenson uses this power to your benefit. It has been proven your subconscious mind will believe whatever your conscious mind tells it, without question. Your subconscious mind will start working on the Essential Habits for Success and help to make them become a reality for you. This is the power you can easily harness for yourself. A power that can work thirty thousand times faster is something most people are interested in learning about.

Mandates from management throughout the country all seem to be singing the same song: If we are going to remain successful and be players in the marketplace both now and in the future, we must constantly strive to learn more, improve our quality of service, increase customer satisfaction, increase market share and do it in less time with fewer people.

If You Don't Like Chane - You are Going to Hate Extinction
Robert Stevenson
January 01, 2019
"When you're finished changing, you're finished." (Benjamin Franklin)

Change is a constant. You can either choose to embrace it or watch as your business disintegrates right before your eyes. Everyone is standing on shaky ground. Today's King of the Mountain could be tomorrow's case study on failure. Kmart, IBM, and American Express have all found out the power of change, from a position of power to a fight for survival. Radio Shack, Kodak, Circuit City, and Blockbuster, all went bankrupt and ultimate reason for their demise was change.

When a company increases the value offered to a customer by improving the product, enhancing service, offering better technology or increasing efficiencies, the competition must follow. The customer wants it better ... they want it easier to use ... they want it cheaper ... they want it now. Even now, in today's tenuous economy, it is the customer who is driving the ship. No matter what else is happening, it is the customer who is choosing when and where to spend their money. This program explores change ... the successes, the failures, the reasons behind both and how to capitalize on the opportunities that are created because of change.

Foundation:

► Change is an inevitable part of life
► Before asking others to change, change yourself first
► By embracing the concept of change, one embraces the future

Participants will be able to:

► See change as an inevitable opportunity
► Examine personal beliefs about change
► Develop a positive attitude toward living in a constantly changing environment
► Understand that the idea receiving the most resistance is probably the best idea
► Capitalize on thinking 'outside the box'
► Deal with the ever-changing needs of the customer
► Teach the process of stimulating ideas
► Realize that change is never final nor always right
► Recognize the value and importance of change
