Tip of the Day

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! 

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

To get great answers, ask great questions.

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

You get to choose.

Believe it then you’ll see it.

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.

Celebrate every W.

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.

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. 

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 

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.

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

Great leaders inspire a shared vision.  

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

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

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 

Average is over. Be memorable to those you serve.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

What’s the cost of not starting today?

“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 

What’s holding you back?

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

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

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.

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? 

Leaders are learners.

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

“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

Why not you? Huh?

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

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. 

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

A coach is the mirror to your blind spots. 

Hustle.

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.
