I worked with Steve and his focus and goal system, mPwr10. Being a Type A sales rep, I was looking to get a daily focus and crush my goals. I’ve purchased other systems that were four times the price yet fell short. Steve’s mPwr10 system delivers. Eighteen months later, Steve’s system has me on track and it takes only 10 minutes a day. Steve’s knowledge and ability to unleash my dormant potential and reveal what was holding me back shined through. Inside the first two months, it was evident that…

Tip of the Day

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

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

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.

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

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 

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

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.

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? 

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

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

“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? 

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. 

What’s holding you back?

Hustle.

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

“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. 

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

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

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

“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 

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

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. 

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.

“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.

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

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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

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! 

“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 

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 cost of not starting today?

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

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

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

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. 

Leaders are learners.

What’s your endgame?

You get to choose.

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

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

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.

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

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots.

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

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

Be intentional about who you want to become.

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

“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 

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.
