“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” -John D. Rockefeller  

Do you give up the good to go for the great in your life?  For many, this is a challenge.  They finally created some success and are feeling comfortable in their life.  

This feeling comfortable is an entrepreneur’s worst pitfall.  It feels good.  They accomplished the principle targets they set out to achieve at the beginning of their journey.  

Is this good all you were meant to accomplish…  or is this just one step on the stairway to greatness?  

Some of my students can find it hard to step away from the good they already found to go after the great.  They don’t want to give up what they have to attempt to get to something awesome.  For them, the security of the good is hard to move beyond, especially if they might have to give it up to get to the next level.  

Remember, you were put here to be great.  It is your whole purpose for being here. By accepting the good, you are cheating yourself and all those around you of encountering and being a part of your greatness.  

Think of where would be now if Bill Gates and Steve Jobs would have settled for being good computer programmers instead of innovative, envelope pushing, seekers of greatness.  The Macbook I’m writing this on would never have happened without the desire to be great instead of just good.  Steve would have stopped long before this computer ever became an idea.  

This is just one example of someone who accepted letting go of the good to do something great.  Greatness affects many positively.  Are you ready to be great?  Then let’s set new, even more ambitious principle targets to strive for on the next step up the greatness staircase.  I’ll be here beside you as you climb. 

Do It Different!

As a fairly new advocate of the Apple computer, I thought I would empower you with some key words of wisdom from the CEO and wonderful visionary, Steve Jobs.  His lessons on  how to achieve greatness.

Lesson #1: Your intuition knows which path to take. Trust it!

“You have to trust in something–your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever–because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.” – Steve Jobs.  Your “Gut” is the number one decision making tool all successful people count on to make fast efficient decisions on business and in life.

Lesson #2: Follow your heart. Don’t settle.

“You’ve got to find what you love, and that is as true for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.  If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it, and like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don’t settle.” – Steve Jobs.  I love what I do everyday so I am never really working.  What do you love?

Lesson #3: Live authentically.

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs.  Again follow your “gut” even when all around you are screaming to do the opposite.  Remember my 95/5 Counter Intuitive Rule I mentioned at the Mindset Mastery Experience; Ignore those 95%er’s. (If you don’t already have your seat registration for the upcoming Mindset Mastery Experience in Orlando March 18-20, now is the time.  Go to …. to now reserve your seat.  An experience you will remember forever).

Follow these 3 lessons, and you’ll have greatness in your life.
