2017 …Sick And Tired Already? Time for Change

Getting tired of the same ol’ thing?

Time for change if you're sick and tired.

Are you ready? Aren’t you sick and tired of being sick and tired?

Did you know that over 80% of just about any audience I talk to today will raise their hand when I ask the question “How many of you don’t know what you want to do when you grow up?”

What if I told you I KNOW that you KNOW.

Yes, I know that you know what you are here to do, you are just a

“RESIST…ER”

It’s how we tick.

We do anything and everything to stay with what makes us most comfortable.

Change is not comfortable.

Ever.

Ever.

In fact, we resist change with every fiber of our being.

Why?

Because it means that in order to change we have to move into unknown territory.

And that makes us terribly uncomfortable.

In fact, it paralyzes us!

It reminds me of the story about the death of a moth.  

You know this story. You have witnessed this story numerous times.

The fly is in the window trying to get outside. He just keeps trying to get out of the window.

He will stay in that window until he dies ……when freedom is so close.

In fact, it is right behind him. 

And what does he do?

He gives up. He doesn’t try. He dies.

His belief system is skewed.

The same story plays out when training an elephant to stay chained to a stake.

The training starts at a young age and the elephant is “trained” into believing that he can’t move from the stake when in fact he could easily ESCAPE!

Crazy. But true.

We have all played out this story in our lives. We have told ourselves we can’t do something.

Can’t be something.

We even convince ourselves the lie is true.  That is right…. we convince ourselves that a LIE is truth!

The GOOD news is that we can change that story and create a new story.

A new reality.

I believe that this year is the time to DO IT.

Have, Be and Do something different. 

…..…To Be Continued

FEAR The #1 Emotion Blocking Your Success As An Entrepreneur

Is entrepreneurial fear blocking your success?

A Take Action Against Fear

“The BEST remedy for FEAR is Action.”  David Neagle

Most entrepreneurs get stuck on STEPPING out and actually doing—doing whatever it takes to create momentum and supercharge their business.

The reason they are reluctant to take the action steps that will help them grow and prosper is FEAR.

They are afraid of failing; they are afraid of succeeding.

What if it works? What if it doesn’t?

And often they just stay STUCK…  sometimes just sitting in STUCK for a while until something changes.

The fact is that those entrepreneurs who face fear square in the face and OVERCOME this fear are the ones who find success and even more than success they learn how to face fear in all aspects of their lives which is HUGE.

Those who remain paralyzed by this fear leave their success to chance—and chance has never been a great leveraging tool and as you and I know, the big FEAR emotion will be coming back over and over again.

Are you frustrated because your business is stagnant and not growing? Are you afraid to take a risk for fear that you’re making a mistake?

Using FEAR as a fuel rather than something that continually stops you in your tracks is what an entrepreneur wants to achieve.

FOCUSING on the rewards and gains are worth the risk. Use FEAR to change directions and course correct.

It’s natural to want to avoid failure—that’s our subconscious protecting us from pain.

But did you know that most successful ventures only came to be after multiple failures?

In fact, some would claim that failure is a required component for success!

After all, it took Dyson 5,126 attempts to create a bagless vacuum cleaner.

After missing more than 9,000 shots in his career and losing 300 games, Michael Jordan said, “I have failed over and over again, and that is why I succeed.”

Thomas Edison agreed when he stated that he hadn’t failed 10,000 times when inventing the light bulb: “I’ve gotten results! I now know several thousand things that won’t work!”

Jack Canfield said, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”

That’s a fantastic mindset—imagine that fear is the door you must walk through in order to be successful. If you knew that, would you still be scared to open the door?

If you’re frustrated with the results you’re getting, try thinking of failure differently.

Rather than accepting it as the death of a dream, view failure as a temporary setback—a detour that is actually redirecting you toward the path to success.

Without failure, you might have steered yourself in the wrong direction for too long. With it, you’ve been given the opportunity to make changes and forge ahead, knowing this time, you won’t repeat the same mistake again.

The KEY is just do it. Try it. Keep moving forward toward what it is that is driving you in the first place. Stay with what it is you are wanting a RESULT.

When you learn from your mistakes, you’re one step closer to accomplishing your goals—and that’s SUCCESS, not failure.

It’s also proof that your mindset will determine whether you throw your hands up in the air and quit, or use your newfound and priceless knowledge to make another attempt to step toward your dream. My Dad had two “sayings” that I continue to remember and appreciate “When You Get To The End of Your Rope Tie A Knot, and Hold On”  and “Keep On Keeping On”. I have tied that knot many times and I bet you have too!

Take the plunge and get started for success.

 

ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!

Invest in yourself, not someone else.

invest in yourself

Are you a person that is trading your time for money?  Invest in yourself instead.

I remember graduating from college. So excited about starting a career, all I thought about was trading my time for money. Back then, I had a lot of time. But not a lot of money.

Trading time for money.

What a great concept! Getting a salary every month sounded like the most wonderful thing in the world.

YEA … a paycheck! I would sit and think about how I could spend that money. You know. The “American Dream” (now known by some as the “American Nightmare”).

But I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I didn’t know that trading time for money was a limited concept. Meaning, I would not be in control of how much money I could make! I didn’t realize I could invest in MYSELF!

Fast forward several years. Continue reading “ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!”

ENTREPRENEURS WANT IT NOW & MOMS Make MILLIONS

working-moms can be entreprenuers

One of the things entrepreneurs find in today’s culture is we all want the answer to our questions NOW?

 

Entrepreneurs want immediate gratification.

Tell me what I can do NOW to get my business to six figures? Get my business on-line? Get more leads?

What about manifesting? 

What do I need to know today, so I can attract more into my life? More money, more business or the right relationships?

I get it, I really do.

Entrepreneurs want what we when we want it.

Right?

Me, too! I certainly get caught up in that vicious cycle at times!

Even this past week…..  I “pulled” my back out.  

(Ugh!)

I  quickly found myself forced to be in the present moment and slowing down at the same time I was thinking, “When can I get back (pun) to my regular routine?”

I had a LONG list of things on my schedule that I had “intended” to tackle, but just that moment in time, when I reached down to pick something up (the wrong way) everything changed.

So…slow down, I did!

And then today, in my morning meditation I find this… Continue reading “ENTREPRENEURS WANT IT NOW & MOMS Make MILLIONS”

Job Hurdles and Your J.O.B. Freedom

Job hurdles can be a real challenge!

Looking for job hurdles

It seems that so many people today are seeking freedom and independence from a J.O.B.,

…but they admit they have some job hurdles in front of them.

Some are real. Some are not.

Of course, the KEY to getting over those hurdles is to figure out which hurdles are real (for you) or not.

I know when I started thinking about what is was that I wanted to do to “Make a Living,” it was for me more about what I didn’t want than what I wanted. (Not a bad place to start!)

I had already tried the entry kind of J.O.B.(receptionist at a restaurant, working at my Dad’s Army Surplus Store, you get the picture, not exactly the most glamorous of jobs). I sort of got the idea that this thing called “work” better be something I liked because standing behind a counter or sitting behind a desk was NOT what I planned to do for the next umptine years!
