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

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

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

Being authentic requires courage. Been there. I have the T-shirt. 

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

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

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

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. 

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.

Why not you? Huh?

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

Be patient when it seems things are not going right and may never be right again. Accept that what is yours will come to you in the right way at just the right time. ~ Iyanla Vanzant >>> Ya gotta believe! 

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. ~Helen Keller >>> Feelings is where it’s at.

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. 

To get great answers, ask great questions.

“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. 

“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 

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

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. 

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.  

“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.

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? 

“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 

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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

“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? 

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

Did you know, every week I write a blog post? Yup. Most times it’s average. Though every now and then I write something that’s pretty good. Click on the Blog tab above to check it. 

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

“The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.” ~ Julia Cameron >>> As their coach, I get my client to love their authentic self.

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 

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?

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

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

Everything you want or who you desire to become begins with a choice.

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. 

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.

A coach helps you to get where you want to go, faster. The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. ~Confucius >>> Actions speak louder than words. Easier said than done. 

“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. 

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

“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. 

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 

Take a look at your performance over the last month, quarter, year, etc. Where ever you land on the scale is a direct result of your thoughts. Change your thoughts and you’ll change your performance.

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.

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

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 

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

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

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

A river never pushes. It flows in a natural direction. Effortlessly. Where are you pushing? What needs to happen for you to flow?

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

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

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.

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

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

Believe it then you’ll see it.

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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.

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

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

People don’t resist change. They resist being changed. ~ Peter Senge >>> People also resist the work required to change. 

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

“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? 

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

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

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

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

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

No matter how busy you are, you must take time to make the other person feel important ~ Mary Kay Ash >>> Ahem. Stop looking at your electronic device.

You’ll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him. ~ Lou Holtz  Translation? Let it go. You’ll feel lighter a lot quicker.

To crush your endgame you’ve got to be willing to commit. There is no Plan B.

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

What’s holding you back?

What if your customer could look inside your business. What would they see?

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.

Complacency is death.

Leaders are always being watched.

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

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” ~George Bernard Shaw
