When I initially contacted Steve Borek, I was having trouble relating to my Gen Y coworkers. Steve helped me look at my leadership style, develop an action plan and stick to benchmarks I set for myself. I went from feeling like Eore in Winnie the Pooh to being more dynamic and authentic in my workplace.

Tip of the Day

Why not you? Huh?

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? 

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.

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

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

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

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. 

“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 

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

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

What’s the cost of not starting today?

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! 

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. 

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.

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. 

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

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. 

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

You get to choose.

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

“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. 

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.

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

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

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

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

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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.

What’s your endgame?

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 

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 

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. 

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. 

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! 

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? 

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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.

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

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

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

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

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

“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.

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

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

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

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.

“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. 

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

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

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. 

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

“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.

Leaders are always being watched.

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

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 

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

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. 

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.

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

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?

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

“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. 

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

“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. 

Leaders are learners.

“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? 

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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

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

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

So many books, so little time.

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

“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? 

“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 

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

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

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

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.

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

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. 

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

Celebrate every W.

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.

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

Hustle.

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

“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 intentional about who you want to become. 

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.

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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