More than anything, Steve Borek gave me a soundboard to speak out loud some of the things that were rattling around in my head. I was on a treadmill without a clear direction. You’re probing, inquisitive, and non-judgmental questions helped me to clarify and explore various avenues and tackle key issues.

 

In the end, I came away with a plan of action that gave me something concrete to work on. I feel better that I’m more productive and working towards a more clearly defined goal.

Tip of the Day

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.

Complacency is death.

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.

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.

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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

“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 

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

“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.

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

“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. 

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

So many books, so little time.

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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. 

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

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.

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

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. 

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. 

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

“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 

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

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.

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

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.

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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

“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. 

Leaders are always being watched.

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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. 

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! 

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. 

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

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

“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? 

What’s the cost of not starting today?

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. 

“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. 

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

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

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.  

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

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 

Believe it then you’ll see it.

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! 

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

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

“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.

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

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.

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

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.   

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

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

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

What’s holding you back?

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. 

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? 

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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

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.

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. 

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

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. 

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

“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 how you run your business, your life. What are you modeling for your kids? My Ahha moment during an interview with a client.

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

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

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. 

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

“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.

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

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

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.

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

“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. 

Celebrate every W.

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

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

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

Hustle.

What’s your endgame?

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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

“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? 

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

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

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. 

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

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

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.
