Steve was an excellent coach. His attitude was laid back, honestly interested in my success, and held me accountable every step of the way. His counsel helped me follow through on a paradigm change fostering personal growth & direction. As an individual with many options and talents, it can be hard to pursue a path that leads to genuine satisfaction within a career. Unhappy with where my choices had led me, Steve challenged me to not view my education & employment history as restrictions, but to…

Tip of the Day

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

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

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. 

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.

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

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.

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

Leaders are learners.

Complacency is death.

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

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

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. 

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

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

So many books, so little time.

“I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of shit. I try to put the shit in the wastebasket.” ~ Ernest Hemingway >>> Early on, this quote helped me feel more confident about my blog writing.

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

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

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.

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

Leaders are always being watched.

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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

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

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

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

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

“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? 

Believe it then you’ll see 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.

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.

“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 

“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 

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.

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. 

“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. 

“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. 

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! 

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

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

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

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

“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. 

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. 

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

What’s holding you back?

The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. ~Confucius >>> Actions speak louder than words. Easier said than done. 

Hustle.

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

What’s the cost of not starting today?

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

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

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

“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 

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

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. 

Why not you? Huh?

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

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

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?

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

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. 

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.

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.

“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 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 

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

“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.

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? 

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

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

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

In Paul Johnson’s biography of Winston Churchill, he describes an early encounter with the Prime Minster at the age of 17 in 1946. Paul asked him what he attributed to his success. “Conservation of energy. Never stand up when you can sit down. Never sit down when you can lie down.” The Prime Minister then hopped into his limo. 

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 

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

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.

“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? 

“Too often, we put up with mediocrity, telling ourselves that later in life we’ll do what we want.” ~ Daniel  >>> Most people land on the island of mediocrity. Ho hum. 

You can’t help everyone, but you can help someone.

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

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? 

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

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

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.

To be a real entrepreneur you always have to be looking forward. The moment you rest on your laurels is the moment your competition overtakes you. ~ Richard Branson >>> Most biz owners do enough to stay afloat.   

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

Your days are numbered. This is not a dress rehearsal.

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

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. 

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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. 

Celebrate every W.

“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
