Learn To Control Your Attention, Your Mind, Your Thoughts

Jason Silva is one of the most intellectually intoxicating people I follow.

If you want a jump start to propel you towards your endgame, do yourself a favor: shut off the tv, close those umpteen web browser pages, ignore social media, hold off on sending that meaningless text, etc. and for the next four minutes watch, listen, and absorb Jason’s laser like message.

Heh Coach, It’s Not About You!

Coaches, get over yourselves! It’s not about you. It’s about the client.

It’s not about you and how well you perform. It’s all about the quality of the client and their willingness to change and do what’s required to conquer their endgame.

We Will See

Growing up in the inner city, the hood as it’s called today, I would analyze things eight ways to Sunday. I guess you’d call it survival instinct.

Everyone, so it seems, was looking for an angle. Looking for an edge. Looking to get out of the projects and create a better life.

As I moved into my sales career selling personal computers, then bigger pieces of hardware, CAD/CAM software for design, and then large bank ERP applications, it was my job to anticipate, manipulate, and put myself in the best position to win the deal.

How Do I Start My Dream?

Several months ago I embarked on a new chapter. I moved to SE Asia; specifically the Philippines.

Over the last five months I’ve enjoyed many experiences that have made me smile, afraid, doubt, sad, give, takeaway, rethink, trust, untrust, and grateful to name a few.

I’m living outside of my comfort zone and living my dream.

Two people who inspired me to start my journey are Herman and Candelaria Zapp. In 16 years the Zapp’s have driven to 50 countries, logged over 250K miles, with virtually no money, in a 1928 Graham Paige car having a top speed of 35mph. Continue reading How Do I Start My Dream?

Followers Determine the Quality of Your Leadership

As you look back over your life, who are the leaders you admire the most?

What were the golden thread attributes that deemed these people to be extraordinary leaders?

As Steve Keating (CME, CSE) Selling Skills Manager for Toro Company, points out in this weeks guest post, perhaps we shouldn’t necessarily always look at the leader per se.

Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others. —Jack Welch

Maybe we should examine Continue reading Followers Determine the Quality of Your Leadership
