“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.

“What I visualize I energize!” – Paul Finck 


Have you taken the time to visualize the results you want in your life in the last week? If not, when was the last time you did?  Are you getting the results you want as fast as you want?

One of the processes which has helped me immensely in my success is visualization.  When you visualize the results you want in vivid detail including the emotions you feel, what you see, how everything smells, what you hear, your mind sees it as already having happened.  Now the important part is involving as many senses as possible.  The more senses the more real your mind perceives it as having happened.

When your mind sees the results you want as already happening, your mind believes it is possible to do again since it has already happened once.  This is the same result achieved by athletes who practice over and over the same action so their body and mind get used to seeing, feeling, touching and experiencing the result they want.  

After visualization, when you encounter the opportunities to create this exact results, your mind will recognize them and help you step into them since it knows the result.  This will energize your progress forward creating your success faster.

I use this consistently in my life to create the results I want and have for years.  Make sure to ask me about it at our next Maverick Selling Business Builders Bootcamp event coming up in New Jersey so I can share even more with you.  

 Are you ready to energize your results?  Start making visualization a part of your daily action items.  And this week on my Do It Different training on Wednesday, you can learn more about visualization.  Just click here to reserve your spot now.

“If you don’t value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents. Value what you know & start charging for it.” – Kim Garst  

How do you value your time?  

Do you just give it away without thinking about what it is worth?  This is very common among entrepreneurs.  I work with so many business owners, coaches and trainers who have never charged anywhere close to the value they provide… or even just give away their knowledge.    

One thing I learned is when you value your time, and charge for it accordingly, others value the advice and direction coming out of your time together.  When you give your time away you actually could be cheating the other person out of ever making the change necessary to create more in their life and getting any results at all. 

Think how many people you know who are quick to give you advice, sometimes without even being asked for it.  Do you pay as much attention to them as you do someone you are paying for what could be the same advice?  

What is the difference between the two?  

One easy to identify difference is because you have invested money in whatever area they are helping you.  When another person has a resource of their own invested, they tend to take more action than if the assistance is given away.

Now the flip side is the best part because it creates a win-win for both parties.  Since they are paying you for your time, you are making additional income working with people who are more serious about taking action in their lives and creating change.  The additional income is fantastic!  The added bonus is the people who value your time are often easier to work with and are willing to do whatever it takes to create the change they want in their life.  

Are you ready to start valuing your time correctly while creating better results for others at the same time?  Click here to spend more time with me so we can create this exact result in your life.

“You manifest what you believe, not what you want.” -Sonia Ricotti  

Take a minute and look at the results you have achieved so far in your life.  Now think about all the dreams and goals you have had at one point or another.  What was different for the goals you had where you succeeded versus the ones you came up short on? 

Typically, one of the biggest differences lies in the belief the goal was possible.  Working with the number of students I have over the years, one of the areas I usually work on is expanding the possibilities in their lives.  I do this to help them achieve greater results than they ever imagined possible before working with me.

The key ingredient for their success after expanding their minds is buying in to the reality their goals and dreams are possible for them to reach.  This belief is what gives you the ability to act confidently.  

Often this belief comes through walking them through the action steps to achieve their ultimate vision.  Once they see the steps laid out, the belief is easier.  The path has been explained.

Any time you have a large goal where you feel yourself doubting whether it is achievable, take the time to map out the action plan.  If you are getting stuck at any point, reach out to a mentor like me who is able to provide the knowledge you need to complete the plan.  

Make sure you get to the stage where you believe your goal will happen.  It will determine your success.  Anything short of complete belief will leave you short of your desired result.

 “One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.” – Denis Waitley  


What have you done lately to continue growing and improving yourself?  Obviously, you are reading this so this one action step you have taken.  Great job!  Now what else are you doing?

Have you taken the time to identify what areas in your life you want to grow and change?  This is the first step.  Identify and make a list of the areas you want to change.

Now, I update this list at least twice a year as it can change rapidly as I become aware of areas I want to improve.  This is part of being a winner and being successful – constant analysis of what is working and what needs changing

Then choose the first area you want to start taking action on.  I usually look at the list I created and choose the one which will make the biggest impact in growth toward my primary Principle Target I am focusing on now.

Next choose how you are going to grow in this area.  It could be getting a book to learn more about it.  Every winner is constantly training themselves on the next area they are growing in.  How many books did you read last year?  I typically read 3-5 books at a time.  I read every day.  It’s one of the easiest ways to continue improving.  Warren Buffet spends the majority of his day reading every day.  Is he a winner?  Take note of the actions and replicate them yourself.

You could search for and find an event to attend for some specific training.  My upcoming event is one place to get this exact training.  I make it a habit to attend at least one event per quarter.  This commitment to myself ensures I continue moving forward.  It’s like bathing.  It must be done with some consistency to have a lasting result.

All the books and training events are awesome to continue feeding your growth.  Your growth might even include finding a mentor or coach to work with to achieve the most the fastest.  Working closely with a mentor will compress the time it takes to reach our Principle Targets.  

As you see, there are multiple options.  Choose one and get started today.

Keeping in mind there are always areas to improve is key to your continued growth and success.  

Be a sponge.  

Be teachable.  

Learn and grow as rapidly as you can.  

This is how you will make the biggest impact in the world around you.

“It is the studying that you do after your school days that really counts. Otherwise, you know only that which everyone else knows.” – Henry Doherty  

    

How much studying do you do now?  

Now this may be different than the studying you did in school.  It includes reading, watching educational training videos, learning a new software or tool and attending workshops.  How often do you do any of these?

When you want to be successful, the learning must continue throughout your lifetime.  Just think of the people who have chosen to ignore learning about the computer.  I’m sure you have met or know a few.  In today’s world, this has become such a powerful tool.  For those who decided they didn’t need it, they are being left at a huge disadvantage.  Do you want to be this type of person?

Many people feel once they graduate school, they don’t need to continue learning.  If they stop there, they only know now what everyone else knows.  They are a commodity in the world since they know the same things as many others.  This means you will be priced and paid based on what the lowest cost is someone can get for your information.  

When you want to become valuable to others and be compensated in a way you want, you must become the expert in an area.  With the speed at which today’s world changes, to become and stay the expert, lifetime learning is necessary.

Make the commitment to yourself and your future to always be a student.  Find opportunities to learn in your everyday life.  Seek out the specialized knowledge which will help you reach your goals.  Then put this information into practice on a regular basis to sharpen your skills.  This is the effort which pays off big for your present and your future.

“Cut your excuses in half and double your actions around your goals.” – Robin Sharma 


Do you want to fast track your success?  

Are you ready to do something different to get something different in your life?  

One of the fastest ways to jump start your success in all areas of your life is to take action on today’s quote.  

In life there are one of two outcomes to any action – excuses or results.  When you cut your excuses in half, your results go up.  They have what is called an inverse relationship.  When one rises the other falls.  

The average person comes with a list of excuses when an action is left unfinished.  Just think of some of your interactions with others when they have come up short.  They always have a reason.  

When you are ready to step your game up to the next level, eliminating the excuses in your life is one of the best ways to make dramatic, noticeable improvement quickly.

The reason why dropping the excuses makes such a large difference is you now will step up your actions to ensure you accomplish the outcome desired.  You have eliminated the excuse clause in your life.  By eliminating the excuses, you create a will do attitude to drive you to find solutions to challenges when they arise.  This “how can I” viewpoint will serve you well and increase your results dramatically 

Eliminating the excuses will cause you to double your actions.  It feeds this commitment perfectly since you will want to take more action to create your results to avoid the excuse monster.  When you take more actions, you will inevitably achieve more success.  When you achieve more success, the reliance on excuses goes down.  It creates a vicious success cycle which keeps feeding on itself.  

Are you ready to start your own success cycle?  When you answer yes, cut the excuses in half and double the actions.  Time to get excited about the results coming to you soon!

 “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” – Napolean Hill 


Have you ever said to yourself or out loud, “Now’s not the right time to do ______.”?  

Typically this is followed by a set of statements which are essentially your criteria to meet before moving forward.  The familiar statements are related to time, money and knowledge.   

Now here’s the big question:  How often have you ever met these criteria and then moved forward with the idea?

Most people I know never move forward with the idea.  They forget about what they felt they had to do before they moved forward or another set of circumstances arise which became the new criteria to complete before stepping forward.  Sound familiar at all? 

As Napolean Hill says, the time will never be just right.  When you want to do something, the right time to start moving forward on it is now.  Everything else is just an excuse you are using as a reason to pause.

Be aware when the “it’s not the right time” phrase comes out of your mouth or enters your thoughts.  It could mean you are afraid of taking the next step and you are using the “it’s not the right time” as an excuse.  When you realize this is the case, now is the time to figure out an action plan to tackle the fear and step into what you want to do.

Remember, the opportunity to take an action tomorrow is never promised to you.  Most people put off many of their dreams because today is not the right time.  Instead of making an excuse, find the reasons and the way to do it now.  Whether successful or not, at least the what-ifs will be gone.  

Live your life finding ways to make ideas happen to create the dream life you deserve.  You will live a much fuller life.

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.” – Jamie Paolinetti 


One of the biggest areas I work on with my students is conquering the limitations they have created in their life – sometimes knowingly and others unconsciously.  

Often, I end up working with entrepreneurs who think all they need is another tool, a different strategy, a new area to work in, etc. to create the success they have been striving to achieve for so long.  Sound familiar?  

What they come to realize is they were correct in wanting something new and different.  The change though starts from within their own mind.  Removing the blocks which have held them back from moving forward with all of the other effective tools they have in their life already.  Once these limitations are removed, you become unstoppable. 

Start looking for the limitations you have set for yourself.  What are some of the consistent thoughts which stop you on your path to success?  Awareness is the first step leading to the opportunity to change.  

For some, this may be a challenge to figure out on their own. If you are one of those who is having a challenge figuring out your limitations, come to my next event for some assistance.

“Commitment with accountability closes the gap between intention and results.” – Sandra Gallagher 

    

Have you committed to your goals for this year? … this month? … this week?   Many people commit to this.  Just think of all of your friends who have made New Year’s resolutions.  How many of them succeed with those commitments?

Didn’t they mean them when they spoke them?  Of course they did.  They had an intention.  What kept them from achieving the results?

For most, it is a lack of accountability.  Who do you have in your life holding you accountable to what you commit to in your life?  Is there anyone?  

If not or if they are unable to hold you accountable, it could be time to find the right person.  The right person is someone who will support your goal, motivate you when necessary, and ensure you stick to your action steps to achieve it.  They must be good at both caring for you and willing to call you out when you fall short.  

The right accountability partner closes the gap toward reaching your results.  They can keep you motivated and progressing forward.  They make sure someone is checking upon the intentions you have declared.  They are leverage to help attain your results.  

The important part to remember is while your accountability partner is a tool to create leverage in reaching your goals, the responsibility still lies with you taking the actions to achieve what you want.
