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

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 

Believe it then you’ll see it.

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

“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. 

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

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

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

“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 

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

Leaders are learners.

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.

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.

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 

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

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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.

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

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.

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

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. 

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.

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

“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 

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

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

“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

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

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!

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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

In Paul Johnson’s biography of Winston Churchill, he describes an early encounter with the Prime Minster at the age of 17 in 1946.

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

What’s holding you back?

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

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

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

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. 

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

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

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

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.  

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.

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

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

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.

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

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

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. 

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? 🙂 

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.

What’s your endgame?

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.

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

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? 

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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

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

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.

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

“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 

“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. 

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. 

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