Tip of the Day

Complacency is death.

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 

Success is inevitable when the plan aligns with your who.

What’s holding you back?

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

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

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.

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. 

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.  

“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 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? 

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. 

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.

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

Did you know, every week I write a blog post? Yup. Most times it’s average. Though every now and then I write something that’s pretty good. Click on the Blog tab above to check it. 

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. 

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

“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? 

“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. 

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

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

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

Be patient when it seems things are not going right and may never be right again. Accept that what is yours will come to you in the right way at just the right time. ~ Iyanla Vanzant >>> Ya gotta believe! 

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

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

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

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

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

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

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

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 

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

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

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

Why not you? Huh?

Leaders are learners.

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

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

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

“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. 

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. 

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

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

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.

“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.

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

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 the story you’re telling yourself? Are you describing your past or present or feeding yourself a script that will change your future?

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

“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 

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.

Hustle.

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. 

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

“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?

Leaders are always being watched.

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. 

“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. 

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

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

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.
