No stories, please

Monday, January 16th, 2023

Business is filled with obstacles that we need to overcome and get through. The only thing that really works is an inner drive with complete commitment along with innovation and an unstoppable approach.

Obstacles will happen every day. When they see an obstacle, many people begin to craft their story of why the obstacle is the reason they can’t get the result. “Well, I was going to accomplish this, but then this happened, so I couldn’t accomplish it.”

Creating real value?

Set an Intention

Ask yourself this question: What action could you take today to demonstrate excellence or real value? It’s a question worth thinking about every day.

I know many people set intentions of how they’re going to go about doing things.

The Perfect Cosmic Accounting System…

Go Above and Beyond Without Asking

Remember the last time someone on your team really had your back? I mean, the time where they really looked out for you.

Doesn’t that feel good when somebody looks out for you, steps in, and goes above and beyond without you even asking? You know what that feels like to be on the receiving end of that.

So what if instead, you became the person who had your teammates’ back? And that you consciously found ways—and chose to execute on those ways—to make sure that you’re stepping in to make their lives better; to help them be more successful in their jobs; to have their back when they’re in trouble.

What would that feel like for you? Yes, it’s going to feel great for them—but I’m asking you this question: What would it feel like for you? Ah, it’s going to feel good, isn’t it… Why?

The World has a Perfect Accounting System

Life gives to the givers and takes from the takers; the world has a perfect accounting system. What an opportunity that we have to make conscious choices about having others’ backs.

So this week before you say “Thank God, it’s Monday” again, set the intention that you will reach out to make a substantial difference in at least three of your co-workers’ lives by having their back and going above and beyond the call of duty.

Isn’t it fun to surprise people?

Have some fun! I can’t wait to hear the stories about what you did…

Oh What a Year!

An Opportunity to Create Something Better

Oh, what a year this last year has been, and thank goodness, we get a new first start!

Let’s face it, there will probably be some challenging times ahead, just like we’ve had a challenging year behind us, and what an opportunity! And when I say opportunity, that means we can either look at the new year and see only problems ahead of us, or we can look at it and say, “Hmm, what an opportunity to create something better. What do I want to go create?”

Create a Great Day

Most people say, “Have a good day!” Honestly, I think that’s kind of silly; I think we should be saying, “Create a great day!” Because if we’re being honest, when we wake up in the morning and start finding all the things that are going wrong, we tend to create more things that go wrong.

When we wake up in the morning and ask the question, “I wonder what really amazing, great thing is going to happen today,” we create amazing things.

So as you approach this next year, approach it with a passion in your heart to make a bigger difference on the world than you’ve ever made before. Have more fun than you’ve had before.

Decide that the setbacks are temporary, say “Oh well that happened! onward we go.” And bring joy to everything that you do.

I wish you the happiest of the new year to make sure that you and all of those you love create a spectacular one!

Better Than Santa Claus…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!

As I think about my life growing up, I loved Christmas because, well, we would get presents! And as a kid, that was a really cool thing.

Be Present with Others

As an adult though, I’ve learned that there’s something even better than receiving presents and that is being present for other people.

Being there with them. Listening to them. Hearing what’s going on in their lives. Finding ways to help them!

That is the great opportunity!

So as you begin this holiday season, think about how you could be more present to those that you love—to those that you love at work. And let’s face it, we do get to love the people we work with because we often spend more time with them than we do with our own families.

Learning to be present with others brings great power. Let’s give it a try.

Merry Christmas to you.
