More than anything, Steve Borek gave me a soundboard to speak out loud some of the things that were rattling around in my head. I was on a treadmill without a clear direction. You’re probing, inquisitive, and non-judgmental questions helped me to clarify and explore various avenues and tackle key issues.

 

In the end, I came away with a plan of action that gave me something concrete to work on. I feel better that I’m more productive and working towards a more clearly defined goal.

Tip of the Day

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 Once they expand their surroundings, reverting back to their outdated environment is never an option.

When’s the last time you did something that scared you?

Is your glass half empty or half full? Whatever your answer, put it all in a bigger glass! 🙂

Leaders are learners.

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. 

What’s the story you’re telling yourself? Are you describing your past or present or feeding yourself a script that will change your future?

What’s the story you’re telling yourself? Don’t like your results? Change your story.  

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

Celebrate every W.

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

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

If it’s important enough, you’ll find a way. If it’s unimportant you’ll come down with excusitis: all the reasons why you can’t do it.  

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.

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

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.

Shine the spotlight on your team while applauding in the wings. Humility is the sign of a great leader.

Hustle.

Failing is the price you pay to enter the discovery room. 

As I pulled into the environs of Asheville, I saw a homeless person standing on a corner, holding his proverbial cardboard sign. It read, I’m dreaming of a cheeseburger. I’ve never seen a more innovative message from a floater. This man has dormant potential. Anyone that creative has the ability to turn things around. I hope he does. 

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

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

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. 

To get great answers, ask great questions.

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

In what way are you different from one year ago?

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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! 

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

So many books, so little time.

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

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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

In Paul Johnson’s biography of Winston Churchill, he describes an early encounter with the Prime Minster at the age of 17 in 1946.

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

“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 

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.

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

If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong. ~ Groucho Marx >>> Every day I make someone laugh. It’s who I am. My oxygen. Hearing others laugh and smile gives me life.
