Happy and Productive Thursday Morning!
We started talking about taking action yesterday and how we can eliminate fear by stepping in immediately. Because some of you responded with questions about the resistance we experience in starting, let's stay on this, drive it home, and provide even more reason for you to level up.
Failing to start is a result of not considering the order of consequences.
The first consequence is usually based on avoiding short-term pain. However, the second and third levels of consequences, when fully considered, are significantly more painful.
There is pain in taking action:
If there is no pain in the action you take, you are settling for less than your potential.
To start taking critical action (or complete critical tasks) requires nothing more than the clear and definitive decision that you are...
Enough talk. People are impacted, influenced, and served through your actions.
And, your impact, influence, and level of success are exponentially amplified when your actions have persistent direction.
Enthusiasm has a half-life. The very instant you delay taking action, 3 things happen:
Immediate action suffocates fear, reduces future procrastination, and builds your enthusiasm toward you achieving your goals.
Each day we are faced with an ultimatum: take meaningful action that creates forward movement OR delay the achievement of your goals. You have the ability to determine your future through your actions.
"inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home...
The official re-introduction of the Daily Charge is here....
With a little twist.
Our hope is that the Charge will serve as a staple in your morning routine and we will be structuring it as a 3-2-1 countdown to your day. Meaning, you will get 3 ideas, 2 quotes, and 1 question (or challenge) for the day - all with the focus on helping you be more efficient as you build a sustainable, scale-able, and predictable business no matter the market.
Distractions have an uncanny way of masking themselves as opportunity.
Performance in business (and life) is not an automatic. It is intentional, deliberate, and requires a high level of integrity in execution.
When the plan is set, all attention and energy must be on what needs to be done now to prepare for success in spite of the uncontrollable.
It's about the relationship, not the transaction.
If you've been following me long enough, you know that is one of my primary platforms in building a business...any business.
In fact, my very first coaching client, I asked that he correct his language when he said that he needed to come to every relationship in contribution. That is certainly part of the process and yet I asked that he make a simple addition to his statement that would shift his focus and mindset...that we not only need to come to every relationship in contribution - we also have to release any and all expectations of something in return for that contribution.
I'm writing this today because I've spoken with enough real estate agents (and coaches) in the past month who are experiencing sustainability challenges in today's market, and almost every instance is because of a lack of focus on relationship whether it's with their clients or their team members.
Now, while there is more to this story that I'll continue...
Being in and around the ocean brings so much joy to my life and my family. And, I had an incredible experience littered with lessons yesterday.
It was a gorgeous mid-80 degree day with very few clouds in the sky and a constant light breeze. We had about 2 hours until high tide and the swells were between 4-6 feet high; perfect for boogie boarding.
My two older kids and I decided to head out and see what fun we could have with my younger of the two staying a little more shallow and the older coming out as far as he could touch.
There were several other riders out and as I was finding where to be in relation to the set headed our way, another rider started to chat me up. To save you time, I'll spare my responses - here are his statements:
Have you ever had one of those rockstar performance days where your production and achievement are simply unmatched? Then, amazingly, a few days later you have no idea what actually happened?
We need a way for us to become avid student’s of our lives and that’s where journaling comes into play.
Now, before you change the channel and completely write-off the idea of keeping a journal, journaling may not be for everyone and yet it’s a discipline that’s adopted by some of the foremost thought leaders so there has to be something to it, right?
Whether you write a few lines оr a few раgеѕ, you have the chance to rесоrd events and experiences in your life because, as we know, we are limited in how much we can actively remember, and we forget exponentially more (more than we will ever know). When уоu commit tо journaling for personal growth, your thoughts, experiences, questions, and emotions become a tangible rеfеrеnсе. It also...
Wе livе in a wоrld оf limitless opportunity, and yet why is it that some are able to take advantage of every opportunity while others don’t even know it’s there?
It’s your perspective of thе induѕtrу, thе wоrld, аnd (ultimately) yоurѕеlf that grеаtlу influеnсеѕ hоw you respond. Slow that down for a minute and let that sink in – the lens through which you view opportunities dеtеrminеѕ yоur level of success in business and in life. How do we, then, become more aware and intentionally change our mindset?
I’ve found a vast majority of people are deeply conditioned with scarcity; thеу ѕее lifе аѕ hаving оnlу ѕо muсh. As a result, they fail to provide recognition, give credit, empower others, or leave a profit – even if the other person is someone who has helped them along the way. A scarcity mindset clouds genuine happiness for others who are successful.
The underlying mindset rеvоlvеѕ аrоund thе belief thаt...
Imagine being so hellbent on getting exactly what you want that you're willing to move the heavens and earth by poking, probing, prodding, manipulating, influencing, asking, forcing, pressing, whining, crying, and pervasively taking action. Whew! And, that's just the beginning for a 5 year old who simply wants...a brownie.
You've either seen it, or been through it, and probably thought something like, "Man, that kid is relentless!"
You're absolutely right! As simple as it might be, kids have massive clarity on what they really want at that given moment regardless of how small or wild their request. As a result, they are willing to take epic action recklessly, wildly, and relentlessly no matter their failures, fears, or perceived obstacles.
The exciting part is that we can learn from them! Here are 4 must-learn ways we can be relentless in our pursuit toward our business and personal life:
