Activate Others to be Enthusiastic

Monday, October 21st, 2019

To activate others to be enthusiastic, you must first become enthusiastic yourself. We have an energy that transfers to others around us. You know a person who walks into the workplace exhausted. They pull the energy out of everyone around them and you’ve had your energy pulled from that person. Perhaps you’ve even been that person. Alternatively, if you choose to come into the office with an enthusiastic mindset and belief system and you choose energy – even though you’re tired, even though you’re exhausted, even though you’ve been working hard – that too is contagious. Are you the kind of person for whom others want to catch the energy that you have? Ask yourself that every day and decide to bring the energy to the game.

Look at things as they can be

Monday, October 14th, 2019

Look at things not as they are, but as they can be. A big thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future. She isn’t stuck with the present but lives in a world of possibility. So, look around you today and see what is around you. Then ask yourself, “Huh, what could be here? What could be created? What if we lived in a powerful way? What would we make happen?” Then from that vantage point – take action.

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.

If you had half the resources and a quarter of the time…

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

Ask yourself this: If you had half the resources and a quarter of the time to do your job, how would you do it differently?

I know what you’re thinking: “No way. It can’t be done! I’m barely making it as it is!” But humor me for a minute. Imagine that you have absolutely no choice but to do everything you currently do with half the resources and a quarter of the time. No choice at all.

Now…what would you do?

The first shift would be in attitude. It would HAVE to be. Once the shift in attitude is made, you are willing to do whatever it takes. Resentment doesn’t build up and defeat your energy. Suddenly the impossible becomes possible.

The second shift would be in organization. You would be forced to get very organized, very quickly, with daily, weekly, and monthly checklists.

Now imagine what would happen to your productivity if you adopted this attitude now, today, even with all the time and resources you have. Nothing would ever stand in your way again.
