What Are Your Measurements?

We're all creatures of habit.   In my old life, the one as a sales executive in the corporate jungle of IT products and services, my life was driven by quarterly and annual quotas. These were measurements in regards to what was expected of me and my cohort.   Say what...

What’s Your Excuse?

As a professional business, leadership, career, and mentor coach, I've heard almost every excuse. As I've said before, my role as coach is not to motivate or convince a client to do something. If you don't want to do it in the first place, motivation from moi almost...

TIP OF THE DAY FROM STEVE BOREK:

The best leaders I’ve known create more leaders. 

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

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

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

Celebrate every W.

If you’re not growing you’re wasting away.

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

“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.

“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? 

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

Stop shoulding all over yourself. 

If it looks good, you’ll see it. If it sounds good, you’ll hear it. If it’s marketed right, you’ll buy it. But… If it’s real… you’ll feel it. ~ Kid Rock >>>

I’ve never sold a single coaching engagement. The prospective client enthusiastically enrolls because I’m real and they feel it.

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

“The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.” ~ Julia Cameron >>> As their coach, I get my client to love their authentic self.

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. 

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

“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 

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.

Why not you? Huh?

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. 

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

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. 

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.

“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 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.

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. 

“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 

Spinning wheels or traction? My clients live in the latter.

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

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

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. 

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 

So many books, so little time.

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

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

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? 

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

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. 

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

What’s your endgame?

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

In what way are you different from one year ago?

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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.

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.

“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.

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

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? 

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

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

“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. 

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

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

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

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

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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

Waiting for everything to be perfect is paralysis through analysis.

“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? 

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

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.

Leaders are always being watched.

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

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

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.

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

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

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

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

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! 

Change is one step away if you’re willing.

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! 

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.

“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. 

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

Keep on keepin on. You’re almost there.

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

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

What’s holding you back?

What’s the cost of not starting today?

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? 

“Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.” ~ Alan Alda >>> When’s the last time you cleaned your windows? 

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

“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 

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.

You get to choose.

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. 

“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.

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. 

Be intentional about who you want to become. 

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

Believe it then you’ll see it.

Complacency is death.

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. 

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?
