What Does That Thing You Want Look Like?

What are you looking for

A wise man without a map will get lost in any country. Where as a fool with a GPS will not!

Seems that more and more people are ‘looking for something…..’. Whether it be a new job, partner, opportunity or whatever. Then a question hit me : Do you know precisely, what this thing looks like”? If you do not know precisely, then how will you know when it is right in front of you?
Take a time as you go through your day to ponder this thought. The clarity that it will give you will act as a map. It will give you a clear destination. From that, you can decide which route you are going to take to get there.

Success is a journey; not a destination.

As always- if any part of this resonates with you please pass it on. Empower someone
To grow into the person they should be.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

Happy Birthday Clazzy J

Clazzy J

(Pictured on the RIGHT)

This is a little happy message to those who knew him.

Clazzy J Today (September 7th), would have been his birthday. He was a great friend and also an amazing DJ. For years after, if I walked down Acre Lane (South London), or other parts of London, I’d be prepared for him to come bursting out of a shop with endless amounts of energy… Energy for life.

So if you’re reading this remember to say a toast to those hat have fallen asleep. But smile as I do if you weep, you didn’t know him!

R.I.P. Clazzy J (John Edwards). Gone but never forgotten. Happy Birthday mate

 

If you have lost someone and still hold their memory close, never put off something and say’I’ll do it tomorrow’. They never got today so you owe it to their memory not to waste it!

WHO HOLDS YOU ACCOUNTABLE?

Who holds you accountable?

I have been thinking about this for a few weeks. I read a quote which read:

“If you want something that you have never had; It stands to reason, that you must do something that you have never done”!

The above got me thinking. If you were going to run an important race, you would get a coach, or personal trainer, right?. Helping you you to do the thing that you have never done, so you can have that which you have not achieved.

The trainer in the example above is holding you accountable to yourself. Looking out for you, ensuring you are staying on track (pardon the pun), to reach your target.

In other aspects of you life you have a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (or a BHAG). This is something that, at the end of your life, you want to be able to say I DID IT! So, the question is this: If your goal is so important to you, who holds you accountable?

I am growing a network marketing business. The reason I’m doing this is to be able to be able to see my Grand children (when the day comes). Whenever and wherever they are! The thought of one of them calling for me and I couldn’t get there, wakes me up in a cold sweat!

To achieve my goal, I need to help people. As a direct result, the more I help, the bigger my business grows. Now, with the subject of this blog in mind, I have decided to change from goal setting to goal achieving. I have asked those around me to hold me accountable.

  • I have set a goal.
  • Written it down (On our fridge).
  • Told my Daughter and my Wife, the goal I have set.
  • Rolled up my sleeves.

The people around me love me and will push me to achieve that which I haven’t done. Look around you. Set a goal. Write it down. Tell someone who wants the best for you. report back to them.

I will feed back at the end of the week, how I did with my goal.

BE THE BEST PART OF SOMEONE’S DAY

This weekend I was in Las Vegas. I know, right, me the guy that doesn’t gamble. I was one of two guys who were the surprise for a good friend’s 50th Birthday. That was amazing but only the first part of the story.

Picture the scene, we’re in a limo and I here a beep…………..beep………….beep. I ask the rest of the people around me but they laugh that it’s the alcohol talking (I don’t really drink either. Don’t ask).  as the ride goes on I hear it again……beep. I look around and find a brand new iPhone 5S. I tap on the glass and hand it to the driver. We talk and we realise that it must be from the previous guests. I leave him my phone number and tell him to get it back the them and hand them my card.

For those of you that are wondering why I left my card, read my blog ‘Only in Calgary’. I lost my phone and had it returned to me. But I never really got to say thank you to the guy that found it. So by leaving my phone number, the owner could contact me if they were so inclined.

Two days went by and I had forgotten all about. I fly home and just as I arrive home the phone rings. What happens next was one of the nicest phone calls I have had in a long time. The man at the other end was very emotional. As we agreed, it’s not about the phone. There are memories that he could not replace.

We left the call agreeing that we would both continue to ‘pay it forward’.

Go out there and be the best part of someone’s day! It feels great!!!!!

DIG YOUR WELL BEFORE YOU’RE THIRSTY

Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty

I have the honor of your attention for a few minutes. Thank you.  What does that mean to you?

  •  What if you’re an athlete? It could mean ‘work on your stamina, before you are thrown into the big race.
  • To a student – Study hard before a test.

For me, I’m taking a course to help me motivate thousands of people. Do I have thousands of people waiting to hear me? Am I ready to lead them? Maybe not. But this is preparation for the crowd that’s coming.

The pen in the picture was presented to me for a two-minute speak I gave. I am in training to help mentor the crowd that’s coming. You know what’s coming; what you’d like to do. Don’t leave it until it’s too late to start. Get your shovel and get busy! I never take for granted that you have read this far. Smile as I am whilst writing this. You have a goal that you NEED to achieve! Get busy; get it done before you need it.

When your opportunity comes, make sure you are ready.  As always, I didn’t post this to sit on a server somewhere. Go take it and inspire someone!
