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.

As always, I didn’t post this to sit on a server somewhere. If you agree with it, use/ forward it to empower someone

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.

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!

Who Do You Hang With?

Who Do You Hang With? What a Crowd

Whilst listening to a video on motivation, the speaker posed the question ‘who do you hang with’? It got me thinking, as in life there are two types of people we have around us.

  1. The friend that means well but holds us back.
  2. The friend that also means well and holds us accountable.

Don’t get me wrong, the advice that the second on gives you may be hard to take, but they want your success.

When you ask the same question in a business setting the answers change. I have always been asked to recommend trades people, companies and the like. Now in this context, you are being asked to recommend people who have your workmanship, business ethics and code of honour.

With the second context in mind, a business man said ‘Remember to surround yourself with people whose tongue in their head, matches the one in their shoes’. Basically if they talk the talk, they should also walk the walk!

I have the god fortune to work with people who have done everything that they have said they would do. Earlier this month I was in LA for three days. With people who share a common goal not a common past. 20,000 business owners in one conference. I have a goal to help as many people as I can realise and achieve their hopes and dreams.

If you want to know more about the clip please let me know. It’s more important that you find out for yourself.

Thank you for reading this post. As always, if you agree with it then please share.

Be the best part of someone’s day!

Are You In Control Of Your Thoughts?

 

This quote is not being read by you. This may sound odd, however it is being read by everyone that you have come into contact with.

To prove this point complete the following sentence:

Knowledge is…………. (scroll down to the answer at the end of the post and I’ll prove my point).

So if you are reading this, you will have completed the little experiment and would like to know more. In our every day life, we do things that are ‘automatic’. These are things, whose origin are unknown. Picture the scene:

A couple are preparing Sunday dinner and the husband looks at his wife as she is cutting the ends of the Sunday roast. Quizzically he asks ‘

H – “Why are you cutting the ends of’?

W – ‘ I don’t know. My mum tought me to cook and that’s what she did. Why don’t you ask her’.

H – (on the phone) – Your daughter is cooking a roast, but she cut the ends off. When we were discussing it, she said you taught her to cook but didn’t know why. Why do you cut the ends off the roast?

Mum – (After thinking for a while) – I’m not sure. My Mum taught me and that’s what she showed me. Call her and ask.

So the husband calls Grandma as this was now really intriguing him.  The same conversation as with the Mum took place and he asked the same question.

H – (On the phone to Grandma)  So Why do you cut the ends off the roast?

Grandma – Oh that’s easy, I only had a small pot!!

So for two generations, this innocent task has been passed down to others without even realising it.

Now look around you. Things that you do, say and even how you think. These are things that have been passed down through generations.

So if there is something in your situation that you would like to change. Be the change. This may be hard at first, as this may involve moving outside your comfort zone.

What to do now?

If any part of this post resonates with you please pass it on to others. Smile with them as they do the test and then the self-reflection.

Now act!!! IF there is something around you that you would like to change go for it. If I can help with this let me know. I may not know the answers, But I’ll help you look!  empower someone today to change their situation, and therefore their future!!!

Time is precious, thank you for taking yours to read this post. Remember, if you are working with people, we all have a long history. Take the time to work with each other’s perceptions.

Answer  to the question

If you had said ‘Knowledge is power’, you would be incorrect. Knowledge is potential power. If it was power, then Librarians would run the country! This proves that what you had been told is what shaped your answer. If you now go back I’ll give an example as to how your actions are not your own.
