Steve was an amazing resource who helped me to focus and make major changes in my life in the “Now What – 90 Days To A New Life Direction” program. After focusing more on my unrecognized strengths, I created a business plan and made an intercontinental move. I was able to keep my fears under control and Steve helped me stay accountable to my goals.

 

Having a coach to help and encourage me with my plan was an investment that made all the difference and I realized things about myself that are inv…

Tip of the Day

“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 

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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

“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.

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

“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 

“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. 

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

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. 

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

“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? 

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

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

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! 

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

“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 

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

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! 

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

“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 

What’s holding you back?

Celebrate every W.

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

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.

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

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! 

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.

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

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? 

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. 

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

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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 

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

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.

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

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

“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 

Leaders are always being watched.

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

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

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

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. 

Why not you? Huh?

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. 

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.

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.  

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

“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. 

You get to choose.

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

Hustle.

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. 

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.

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

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

Leaders are learners.

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

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.

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

“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? 

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

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

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.

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

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. 

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

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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

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

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

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. 

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

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

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

Hopefully your professional career pays the light bill. Is it lighting you up? If yes, you’re part of the 29%. The majority, 71% of the workforce, are disengaged from their jobs. I can help you change that. 

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. 

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?

In what way are you different from one year ago?

So many books, so little time.

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