Your Outlook Determines Your Outcome!

Picture the scene, it’s Monday Morning (-15C), and I’m off to work. I open the door and this is the scene that greets me!

07:00am Monday Morning

In life, there are few things that direct your OUTCOME, like your OUTLOOK. Take a look at the two photos. What is the first thing you would have thought? Remember it’s -15 (without the wind chill), when you see six inches of snow on your car? Well this what in fact what I saw. I opened my door 07:00am on a Monday morning. So, I ask again what do you see?

Scroll down!

Personally it made me smile! I see opportunity!!! I’m going skiing!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is this outlook that resulted in the outcome of me going skiing with my daughter a couple of days later. The smaller skis on the right are hers.

I have the pleasure of teaching her how to ski! It is a memory that I will never forget. Seeing her conquer her fears and make the most of every day? What more can a father wish for?

So what lessons have we learned from this post?

Don’t focus on the problem! Look for the blessings (and opportunities)!!!

As always, I didn’t post this to its in a server somewhere. If some part of it resonates with you; take it and empower someone to do great things!!!

Is your Vision in sight? It needs to be.

With this post, ask yourself, What is your goal? This is a very important question, as you need to really know what it is you want.

If the above seems hard to grasp, look to your own day. Is there not a picture of your family on your desk or on your cell phone? The image is doing the same as I am stating.

There will be people and things that could knock you off track. As you are on your journey, you need to have this image ‘front and centre’ in your minds eye’.

Now as an Entrepreneur, you are surrounded by those who may not see your vision. As a result of their shortsightedness, they try and knock your resolve. So what do I do in such circumstances?

It is for this reason that I try to be ‘the best part of someone’s day’. But wait, I don’t do it to help others. When they let me help them, they are actually helping me. In that brief moment, it reinforces in me that I am a good person and that I am moving towards my goal. It energizes and reminds me that the goal is worth the negative opinions around me.

So as you are on your way, ‘swimming through an ocean of rejection’, make sure your goal is strong and in sight!!!

If you decide to set a goal. Picture it.

Really picture it. If you can see it, you can achieve it!

As always, I didn’t write this post to sit on a server somewhere. If anything in the post connects with you please pass it on.

I now try to help as many people as I can achieve their dreams. I don’t know all the answers; but I’ll help you look!

Your Goal and Your Timing……… Are both right?

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

So, here we are again. You are in pursuit of the thing you hold most dear. You think you have done everything right.

Written your goal——————————-CHECK

Set your deadline——————————CHECK

Asked for help (devine guidance) ———CHECK

Worked your plan——————————CHECK.

However despite the above, you don’t achieve the goal.

WHY?????

Is your goal wrong or is your clock in need of attention?

Think about the variables.

Goal

Work ethic.

Deadline

If  your goal is important to you, RESET YOUR CLOCK AND GO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Maybey your clock had stopped. change the battery and go again.

Have You Got Your Speach Ready?

Imagine this,

You have finally achieved your goal. This should not be a stretch of the imagination, as it’s a given that you can do it. All the same humour me. So, there you are on stage in front of hundreds of people, accepting your award. As you step up too say a few words, you look over the crowd. Then you see that it is filled with a couple of people you know. No that’s not quite true, The crowd has ALL the people you know. What to say???? And you think to yourself there are two types of people. Each will have a conversation with themselves.

Type A: “I helped him/ her along their way”.

Type B: “I knew deep down that they would make it”.

The thing is that you stop and think. Both types of people were critical in helping you get to where you are now. Those that offered what appeared as no help, were critical in making you stronger, more determined, more resilient.

You clear your throat and say “THANK YOU EVERYONE!” And you mean it. You realize that you need them all equally.

So take a moment, on your journey to say a thank you to everyone you meet. As they have brought you to this point. Remember, you are more powerful than you could ever imagine.

SHORT POST – How ALL Resolutions Can Be Acheived

ALL RESOLUTIONS CAN BE ACHEIVED – Yes I said ALL. (Read on)

It’s that time of year when we make resolutions. But STOP! Look back. What did you NOT achieve last year? Why? Correct that, do it again and you have a greater chance of success!!!

It’s so simple but true.

Look Around – You May Be Surrounded By Heroes.

After reading this post look around you. Appreciate the special people around you.

When you look around you, there are heroes in your life. I have the pleasure of working with one such individual. As a young foreman, he took me under his wing. Over the fifteen or so years working with the man, I discovered that management could; and should be fun. We used to look forward to going to work.

A further example of what a hero is, will be described in this example. Imagine how you would feel if your partner came home from the pub, with a ‘new friend’. The friend was down on their luck and struck in the following trap. You can’t get a job, if you don’t have an address. You can’t get a home, if you don’t have a job.

Over the next few months, he helped get this person a job at our company and worked with the individual to find an apartment.

We all like to think we would be able to help another person who needs it. But who can honestly say that they would actually DO it?

The man that I’m speaking of has just lost a battle that he was fighting after having a heart attack over 14 years ago. I for one am indebted to him for the time that he took with me. He taught me things that you will never find in print. i.e. how to spot a person that will be key to the success of a project in a crowd!
