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 

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.

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

So many books, so little time.

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

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 

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

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.  

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.

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

What’s the cost of not starting today?

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

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.

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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

Leaders are always being watched.

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

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

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

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

“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. 

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

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

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?

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.

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. 

“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.

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

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

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

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

Believe it then you’ll see it.

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

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.

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.

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

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?

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

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

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

“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.

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

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

What’s holding you back?

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 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. 

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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.

“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.

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

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

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

You get to choose.

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. 

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

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.

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. 

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. 

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. 

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.   

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

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 

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

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

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? 

Sometimes a change will do you good.

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

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