Tip of the Day

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?

Believe it then you’ll see it.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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.   

“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. 

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.

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 

What’s your endgame?

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

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

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

Complacency is death.

What’s holding you back?

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. 

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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

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

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.

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

Leaders are always being watched.

“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 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! 

Leaders are learners.

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

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

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

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

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. 

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

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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.

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

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

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

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! 

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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. 

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.

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

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

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

“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? 

“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 

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? 

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

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. 

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

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.

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.

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

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.  

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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.

“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. 

“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. 

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

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

“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 

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. 

“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.

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! 

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

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

“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. 

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

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

What’s the cost of not starting today?

Why not you? Huh?

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

Celebrate every W.

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.

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

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

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

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

“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.

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

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

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

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

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. 

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.

“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 

“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 

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

You get to choose.

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