I worked with Steve and his focus and goal system, mPwr10. Being a Type A sales rep, I was looking to get a daily focus and crush my goals. I’ve purchased other systems that were four times the price yet fell short. Steve’s mPwr10 system delivers. Eighteen months later, Steve’s system has me on track and it takes only 10 minutes a day. Steve’s knowledge and ability to unleash my dormant potential and reveal what was holding me back shined through. Inside the first two months, it was evident that all the questions and changes paid off. If you want to take your game to the next level, hire Steve today.

TIP OF THE DAY FROM STEVE BOREK:

“The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be your only sustainable competitive advantage.” ~ Arie de Geus >>> The competition isn’t standing still. What are you learning? 

Sometimes a change will do you good.

Take a look at how you run your business, your life. What are you modeling for your kids? My Ahha moment during an interview with a client.

Everyone has dormant potential. They just don’t see it. This is where I come in. 

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

“Being negative only makes a difficult journey more difficult. You may be given a cactus, but you don’t have to sit on it.” ~ Joyce Meyer >>> Take ownership, take action, and make it happen.

One small crack does not mean that you are broken….it means that you were put to the test and you didn’t fall apart. ~ Linda Poindexter >>> Just keep moving.

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

I love working with entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, etc. because they’re full of life, cooking a half dozen meals at one time.

Your intuition and your intellect should be working together… making love. That’s how it works best. ~ Madeleine L’Engle >>> When was the last time your intuition and intellect had a loving moment? 

Hustle.

Saying things will eventually get better is a hope strategy. How’s that workin for ya? 

The first one to make 5,000 mistakes wins. If you’re not failing, you’re not taking enough chances. 

Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regrets. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher >>> Consistently doing just one would be an achievement for many. 

Where the focus goes the focus grows. What focus seeds are you planting? 

Does your business need buffing? Where would you begin first?

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

Cause I need to move, I need to wake up… I need to change, I need to shake up. ~ Melissa Etheridge > >>When clients hire me, things start to change. Their energy is different. That’s what it’s about. Changing your energy.

71% of the workforce are disengaged with their jobs. I partner with these people to find a job, career, or transition to a new business that pays the light bill and lights them up.

OK, keep thinking about it. At some point, you or your idea will become irrelevant. 

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” ~ Coco Chanel >>> Average is over. Set yourself apart so people notice. Otherwise you’ll blend with the masses in the land of mediocrity. 

Would you like a different outcome? Let’s board a new train with fresh useful baggage. 

The short way is the long way and the long way is the short way.

What’s your life been about? Personally? Professionally? 

Meditation relaxes the mind. Until a few years ago I wasn’t a fan. Jerry Seinfeld practices Transcendental Meditation twice a day. He says it’s like your phone charger. TM gives him energy. 

Where is your focus? For most it’s on what they don’t want. Where your focus lands, is where your focus expands. 

I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking. ~Joan Rivers >>>What do you really want to say?

If you’re dissatisfied with your current life, ask yourself what your current life is a metaphor for. ~ Steven Pressfield >>> Well? 

Believe it then you’ll see it.

If it looks good, you’ll see it. If it sounds good, you’ll hear it. If it’s marketed right, you’ll buy it. But… If it’s real… you’ll feel it. ~ Kid Rock >>>

I’ve never sold a single coaching engagement. The prospective client enthusiastically enrolls because I’m real and they feel it.

You lost the deal, client, job, etc. Feeling bummed about it? Don’t waddle in the muddle too long. Otherwise, you risk not seeing the next opportunity. 

The wider the gap between who you are and who you want to truly become, the more unhappy you’ll be.

If you’re not growing you’re wasting away.

I wasn’t poor back then, I just didn’t have any money. Mary Carillo’s commencement address, to the Elon graduating class of 2014. >>> It’s all a matter of perspective. 

In what way are you different from one year ago?

“The only way around is through.” ~ Robert Frost >>> Does it feel scary? Great. Watch what happens when you get to the other side of fear.

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.” ~ Alan Alda >>> When’s the last time you cleaned your windows? 

Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it. ~ Steven Pressfield >>> Like the time I danced the runway in front of hundreds of strangers to raise money for charity. Scary! But I did it! 

Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future. 

Celebrate every W.

Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else. ~ Margaret Mead >>> Show the world who you are.

“We all are manufacturers in a way – making good, making trouble or making excuses.” ~ H. V. Adolt >>> What kind of a manufacturer are you? 

Creating sustainable change in your business requires sustainable behavioral change. A qualified coach can help you with both.

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

Try to be like the turtle – at ease in your own shell. ~ Bill Copeland >>> No fanfare needed. Just be yourself.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. ~ Winston Churchill >>> Keep going.

I coach 98% of clients by phone and/or Skype in a half dozen countries. What’s your endgame?

“The ability to learn faster than your competitors may be your only sustainable competitive advantage.” ~ Arie de Geus >>> The competition isn’t standing still. What are you learning? 

To change your results, you must change how your world is wired. What are you doing to improve your wiring?

So many books, so little time.

Leaders are learners.

I help clients stretch their minds and go to places they’ve never been. Once they expand their surroundings, reverting back to their outdated environment is never an option.

You get to choose.

The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken. ~ Samuel Johnson >>> What new habits are a permanent part of you? 

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure that the storm is really over. But one thing is certain, when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about. ~ Haruki Murakami 

Be real. There’s a reason Brad Pitt gets huge bank to be someone else. It’s hard to do. Just be yourself.

Accept where you are at this moment. Don’t make it better nor worse. Just be honest with yourself. 

Whatever makes you weird, is probably your greatest asset. ~ ~Joss Whedon >>> What’s your weirdness? 🙂 

You can never be ready. There’s way too much information to know.

To get great answers, ask great questions.

What do you want more than anything else? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to get it? 

I admire a person who’s willing to do whatever’s necessary. ~Jack Sparrow >>> Are you willing? 

Are you the orchestra leader of your own life or are you allowing society and its institutions to dictate you how to live? Are you playing by someone else’s rules or creating your own? ~ Steve Siebold, Author, FAT LOSER! Mental Toughness Book for Dieters 

Acknowledgements are gifts. How many gifts will you give today?

All things are difficult before they are easy. ~ John Norley >>> When I struggle with something new I simply think I’m learning something new. This one thought changes my entire view of what I’m going through. 

The brain is neuroplastic and has the ability to change. Coaching really helps in this regard. 

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” ~ Paulo Coelho >>> What you want is on the other side of the fear wall. 

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” ~ William Blake 

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

“Loosen up; you’re not going to convince them anyway. Speeches aren’t about turning archenemies into cheering supporters. Presentations are mainly opportunities to reassure those who already agree with you that you’re a horse worth betting on” ~Tom Peters 

Leaders are always being watched.

What’s your endgame?

“Magic happens when you tell the Universe what you want it to do for you. Miracles happen when you ask how you can be of service to the Universe.” ~ Marianne Williamson >>> Too woo woo for you? I once thought the same. No longer. Try a sip of the Woo Woo Kool-Aid. No need to gulp. 

“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful…“ Billie Mobayed 

Spinning wheels or traction? My clients live in the latter.

Life is to be lived. ~ Katharine Hepburn >>> Are you living or simply surviving? 

Desperation can cloud your thinking process. A coach can see what you can’t or aren’t willing to see.

Sometimes you’ve got to just get out of your own way.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!” ~ Hunter S. Thompson 

You were going to make a change last month, last year, etc. though you put it off. How’s that working?

Goals help you create an unconscious strategy to move in the right direction. 

They’ll never change! You’ve heard this or even said it to someone else. I’m in the *People * Can * Change * Business.* I see transformations happen all the time.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. What signs are you ignoring that can potentially cook your business like a charred hot dog? p.s. I put mustard on my hot dog. Ketchup? Sacrilegious. ;-p 

When you immerse yourself in the things you love, and I mean actually love, something happens. You begin to get excited and inspired. ~ Tom Wittlin >>> Focus on clients, projects, etc. that get you jazzed! 

Nothing gets me more pumped than giving oxygen to my client’s dormant potential.  

Why not you? Huh?

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. ~Steve Jobs >>> Consistent action is the key. 

A trained coach helps the client uncover and own the new direction. The new place is in the clients bones. They just can’t see it. A coach really helps.

What’s the cost of not starting today?

Usually, I don’t have the I Dream of Jeannie solution. Meaning, in one or two calls you’re totally transformed. Not usually the case. Change takes time.

The hardest part is taking the first step. Then taking another and another. Each successive step is easier than the previous one.

“Do not grow old, no matter how long you live. Never cease to stand like curious children before the Great Mystery into which we were born.” ~ Albert Einstein >>> Be more childlike; in a state of curiosity.
