Big Beliefs

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Those who believe they can move mountains – do; and those who believe that they can’t – cannot. Belief triggers the power to do. Your performance will never exceed your beliefs. So choose your beliefs well because they will create the possibilities in your life.

If you don’t like your current beliefs, choose different ones.

The Magic of Thinking Big

Monday, September 30th, 2019

David Schwartz, the author of The Magic of Thinking Big, told us that, “Success is determined by the size of your belief and if you think little goals you can expect little achievements. If you think big goals, you win big success.” Big ideas and big plans are often easier. Sometimes, they’re certainly no more difficult than the small ideas and the small plans. So, think big about what’s possible for you and then get about it! Start making big things happen today.

Passion is Form over Function

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

Passion is form over function. But purpose is function and function and function. Goethe once said, “Great passions are maladies without hope.” Some people call their base camp, where they pitch their tent, passion. But passion is what you are about. Unfortunately, passion plays out as frenetic energy, impetuousness, and breathless last-minute actions. It’s exhausting and unstable. If instead your base camp is grounded in purpose, something that you are in purpose for and your approach looks like perseverance to a disciplined and masterful execution towards some great end – that’s what purpose is all about. Passion may have its roots in what is good and noble, unfortunately, it often plays out in a way that is laughable and painful. Choose purpose over passion every day.

A Master is never defensive

Monday, September 16th, 2019

A master is never defensive. Instead, a master actually likes the learning that comes from being challenged and it’s actually an enjoyable, educational process. See, mastery means turning down the defensiveness that comes naturally to all of us. Defensiveness looks like when someone challenges us, trying to take the stand of being right. But we can be happy, or we can be right. We can’t be both. So, the next time someone challenges you, it’s a great opportunity for you to learn through humility by saying, “Tell me more about that, I want to understand.” As opposed to taking the stand that you’re right.

I am Responsible

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Union analyst James Holland says, “The moment we say, ‘I am responsible. I am accountable. I have to deal with this.’ is the day we grow up. At least until the next time, the next regression and the next evasion.” Interesting quote. So growing up is something we do every day when we take on challenges that we had been unwilling to take on in the past. But when we step into that level of accountability, that’s when we’re living with our power. And that’s what he refers to as growing up. So how do you step into your power today to take on the things that you see going on around you that you know just aren’t quite right? Make it happen today.
