Taming Your Crazy Life

Taming Your Crazy Life

2022-08-0811:43

Taming Your Crazy Life Are you finding yourself distracted and unfocused?  If you look around, there is an epidemic of craziness. It's so bad even the squirrels have started chasing shiny objects.  Imagine if they had a Facebook account like you? If you're ready to stop the insanity, remember this: 1) Getting caught up… in the caught up… will catch up with you when you least expect it. Can you feel it coming? 2) While it doesn't feel like it, the pre-crazy world you miss still exists. Nothing has changed. Turn off the phone, internet, and TV for 24 hours, and it will magically re-appear. 3) You will be far happier and progress more when you step off the spinning wheel of life. A slower, more methodical, and ritualized approach is the way. Play the long game.  Putting an end to the craziness in life is like ripping off a Band-Aid. Do it fast, and your life will get better instantly. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
How to Be Your Own Cheerleader Do you remember what it was like to be in 1st grade? It was a time when everybody lavished you with encouragement for being YOU - and because you finished your art project without eating the glue. Those were beautiful times. But you may have noticed things have changed since you were okay to take a nap in the middle of class. You grew up. Yes, growing into an adult brings many mentors your way. They do their best to motivate and inspire you. But you know in your heart that they can only do so much. It's up to you to drive yourself in the direction of your dreams. That's called adulting. I say it's time to PYOTB, my friend!   YOU are your own BEST Cheerleader. Don't sit around waiting for somebody to make you feel good. Pat yourself on the butt. Scream, "I done GOOD!"   It's going to be the best day ever! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Focus and Inspiration Without Resistance Does this happen to you? A great idea pops into your head. Your heart fills with excitement. Nothing can stop you - except that you feel stuck in quicksand. The more you fight, the deeper you sink. It seems that the only way out is to give up on your dream - again. Let’s not do that this time. Feeling inspired to make a change in your life is terrific. It can also be scary. Think of it as survival. Your mind is wired to survive. That means avoiding anything bad and seeking everything good. Until you know for sure, everything is bad. Resistance is the automatic result. When you are ready to act on your inspiration, focus on the good coming and do your best to ignore anything that feels like quicksand.   You could say, “It’s about resisting your resistance.”   Inspiration Without Resistance. That’s how you live the life you’ve always wanted. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Stress-Free Weekly Productivity I have a saying - “Next year begins THIS year. Next month begins THIS month. Next week begins THIS week.” If you want to stay on track, accomplish your goals, and enjoy life more - you MUST take control of your calendar. It’s easier than you think: 1) Life will come at you FAST! Be sure to schedule any significant and can’t miss life events at least one year in advance. Put it on the calendar and block it out. You can always change your mind. 2) Hold your space. Decide in advance what you will be doing with your days. When will you work on projects? When will you see clients? When will you have fun?  3) Never end one week without locking in your schedule for the next - and stick to it.  The future is always brighter when your day-to-day focus fulfills your goals this week. Focus, my friend. Focus. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
The Best Kind of Relationship The quality of your life is a direct result of your relationships. Tony Robbins said that.  There are three ways to play the relationship game, whether it's a personal, professional, or business relationship. There is only one way to win. 1) All relationships begin with two independent individuals. If you remain independent, you will never connect. 2) Some relationships become co-dependent. Developing this kind of relationship means losing individuality. Isn't that what attracted you in the first place? 3) Combining your skills, passions, and identity is the best way. The result will be an interdependent relationship.  The strength of an individual. The power of a team. It doesn't get any better than that. Learn more about your ad choices.

Being a Good Quitter

Being a Good Quitter

2022-08-0111:112

Being a Good Quitter Has anybody ever said to you, "it's good to be a quitter?” Probably Not. That’s why it’s so important today that you pay attention today. Being a good quitter isn’t an excuse. It should never be an option for making things easier. Instead, quitting is a wise choice. You choose to quit when your progress has you going around in circles or has stopped. That's when things get interesting. Once you are committed to an idea that is important to you, it can be difficult to allow yourself to quit. Stuck in a lousy job, terrible relationship, destructive behavior? Your internal sense of "Identity" will compel you to hold to the very end. That may not be wise. Listen closely when your inner voice begins to sound a warning. There's no need to wait for the inevitable. Trust your gut and change your direction fast. Learn more about your ad choices.

Simple Question For Success It's the world's simplest recipe for success; Stand up, take a step, REPEAT!   A member wrote asking how to best use such simple advice: 1) Stop whatever you are doing. Find a place where nobody will interrupt you for at least 5-minutes. 2) Focus on YOU. 3) Ask, "How is my life going?" Open your mind and let your thoughts flow to the different roles of your life. Bring them into focus. 4) For areas going well, continue your momentum. For areas of concern, ask," What CAN I do to make it better?" 5) Immediately take action based on your answers. Never stop. 5-minutes a day is all it takes to stay on track. Check in with yourself. Adjust. Keep moving.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
How To Multiply Your Time Wouldn’t it be great if you could create more time in your day without giving anything up?   The secret is how you prioritize the projects already on your plate. That requires a simple understanding: 1) Working on multiple products simultaneously only delays completing all the projects. 2) When you complete a product, not only is it off your plate, it begins producing your expecting results. It also frees up time to move on to your next project. The next time that you are trying to find more time, ask - “What can I finish right now that will give me more time tomorrow - and every day after that?” You will love how you have so much more time in your day.

How to Live Joyfully No Matter What Would you like to be happy every day of the week? Maybe it's time to start thinking like a happy person? There's no magic to being happier. Rose-colored glasses are not required. Just start looking at your day-to-day life the way a happy person does. Give this a try: 1) Accept that merely being alive means you will run into occasional challenges. 2) Realize that dealing with challenges is a privilege that comes with being alive. 3) Welcome frustration. That means that you are not satisfied and are beginning to make adjustments. 4) Accept responsibility for solving your challenges. Run forward and fix them as soon as possible. 5) Deal with everything that life throws at you. Get a great night's sleep. Have another great day tomorrow. It's amazing how that kind of mindset makes most challenges never show up in the first place. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Common Characteristics of Highly Successful People Do you wish you could find a mentor to help you along the way? Every mentor I’ve ever had has made a point of validating that I possessed three characteristics for success.   Would you pass their test? 1) Do you have a burning desire to achieve your goal? 2) Are you a coachable person and prepared to accept the wisdom and guidance of others? 3) Are you willing to undertake all actions to achieve your success? Wouldn’t you want this in someone that was asking for your help?   Talk your walk. Walk your talk. That’s a great life. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Practice Makes Greatness It’s been said that Practice makes perfect.  That might be true if you were able to practice perfectly. If that were the case, why would you need to practice? Practice does not make perfect. Practice makes permanent.  Practice bad thinking, and you will get all the bad thoughts you could ever want. Practice makes permanent. Practice bad manners and are sure to get better at being rude. Practice makes permanent. Practice bad relationship skills, and you are guaranteed to miss out on the best life has to offer. Practice makes permanent. It is always that way, it will never change, and you can harness its power. Practice being positive, forward-thinking, and believing that life is good. That’s what you will get. Practice being a good person that is always thinking of others. You will find yourself surrounded by good people. Practice being present, respectful, and loving in your relationships. You will never be alone. Yes, practice makes permanent, but it also makes for greatness. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

Life Altering Questions

Life Altering Questions

2022-07-2212:192

Life Altering Questions A long time ago, it occurred to me that life is nothing more than a giant scavenger hunt. Yes, life is full of questions, and it’s long enough for you to figure out all the essential answers. And the winners are the people who figure out the solution for what you are seeking. Here are a few that I use on a regular basis to get me thinking: 1) What do you want to do? 2) What do you want to have? 3) Where do you want to go? 4) What contribution do you want to make? 5) What do you want to become? 6) What do you want to learn? 7) Who do you want to spend your time with? 8) How much money do you want to earn, save, and invest? 9) How much time do you want off? 10) What will you do to create optimum health? I’ll repeat it. Life is full of questions, and it’s long enough for you to figure out all the essential answers. It’s time to get busy. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

It doesn’t matter what you do. You will know when you have succeeded when the lovers and the haters all come out to play at the same time. Focus on the lovers. -- My Friends are Jealous of My Success Have you ever had a crazy day that has you putting out fires and wondering when it will be time to go home? And, did I mention, you were doing what you love and want to be doing - successfully? Why is it that life gets crazier when things go well? There’s a simple answer. No matter what you do, when enough people begin paying attention to you, your life will change. Some folks will love you. Some will hate you.  Others won’t have an opinion but will say something anyway.  Many will be jealous. Lots will be proud.  It doesn’t matter what you do. You will know when you have succeeded when the lovers and the haters all come out to play at the same time. Focus on the lovers. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

Knowing Who I Am

Knowing Who I Am

2022-07-2012:103

Superman lives for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. You’re pretty super too! What's driving you? -- Do You Have a ‘Who I Am’ Statement? Do you have a roadmap for who you are and how you operate in the world?  You need a ‘Who I am’ document. Who I am - is not a mission statement. Who I am - is not a list of affirmations. Who I am - is not a value statement Who I am is a personal cheat sheet that reminds you why you do what you do. How do you see yourself? How do others see you? How do you act in situations? When life gets in the way, you can always turn to your pre-determined ‘Who I am’ for the corrective actions to take. Remember - Inconsistency in behavior will whittle away at your soul.   Consistency will strengthen you and makes you happy. It’s time to be like Superman. His ‘Who I am' is Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

Get what you want by using CALLS to action: Clarity. Accurate Thinking. Leverage. Systemization. Life is about to get much more relaxed. -- Taking Action in Your Life Easily There is a simple formula that you can apply to get what you want, enjoy the process, and ensure that it will last for a lifetime. 1) Get clarity. You must clearly define what you want. When you don’t know what path you are heading, you will drift with frustration. 2) Accurate Thinking. Assume that you are not getting the correct information. Double check and confirm. Then move forward. The more accurate your understanding of your plan, the more comfortable and quicker it will be to get there. 3) Leverage. You may think that you can do all the heavy lifting yourself, and you can see in the beginning. But why? You’ll get there faster if you find a way to leverage every action for maximum results. Don’t go it alone. 4) Systemization. Create ritualized actions that move you closer to what you want. Once there, automate those actions. Your purpose required an operating system to stay focused and on track. Get what you want to be using CALLS to action: Clarity. Accurate Thinking. Leverage. Systemization.   Life is about to get much more relaxed. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

Success arrives when you move from a solid TODAY to a stronger TOMORROW. Don't leap too soon, but don't delay either. -- Courage to Face Your Passion Changing something about your life is pretty straightforward.  Figure out what you want and change it. Are you done laughing? Most folks fall on the way to their dreams because they don't move, move at the wrong time, or move too fast. That's why it's time to build your bridge once you know what you want. Here's how: 1) Fortify your current foundation. Save money, pay bills, and do whatever it takes to create a firm and peaceful base to build. 2) Begin constructing the foundation for your new life. Go to school, network, research, and plan. Do everything in your power to assure your success with no regret. 3) When you're ready, leave your past behind, cut off the old, and begin living your new life. Be patient. Wait until you are at least 70% ready to succeed before you cross to the other side.  Success arrives when you move from a solid TODAY to a stronger TOMORROW.

You will always get more of what you want when your communication moves toward a common goal. -- How to Improve Your Communication Skills Today Today you are going to have opportunities to communicate.  Here’s how to create conversations that connect: 1) Meet folks where they are. Please pay attention to how their day is going. Step into their NOW. 2) Establishing something in common. “Wow! Has this day been crazy for you too?” 3) Establish an undeniable truth. “I promise it’s going to get crazier with the holidays coming.”  4) Move the conversation toward an idea that everybody can agree on. “Holidays are coming fast. We should get ahead of it and do some planning.”  5) Bring a new idea into the conversation. “I have a system that will work for both of us. Do you want to see it?”  You will always get more of what you want when your communication moves toward a common goal. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

Are you feeling stuck? Ask yourself, WHAT CAN I DO? The honest answer will pop into your head. Then - stand up, take a step, REPEAT! -- One Question When You Are Stuck I have a favorite question;" What Can I Do?" I ask it when I'm unsure about the following action. It always delivers.  Getting what you want in life sometimes includes random and vague goal setting - something that is not likely to help you make progress. What you need is to be targeted and specific.  But what do you do when targeted and specific isn't coming to mind? Ask yourself - "What Can I Do?" Sometimes the answer is not what you want to hear. Then again, when you are stopped in your tracks - it can't hurt. What's next? Stand up, take a step, and REPEAT! You'll find your way. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

Another Chance to Succeed Is it me, or does living life these days make you feel like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day?  When it comes to working toward goals, that can be a tremendous asset. It's also something that will break you free when things don't feel like they are going your way. Everybody has ups and downs. Up days are lots of fun. Down days make you want to crawl under a rock. But like the movie, with the right mindset, you always get another chance to try again. How would you feel if every day was a chance to tweak, adjust, flex, or reinvent your approach to living? What if everything got more comfortable as you built your knowledge of what works best for you? How empowered would you feel if you knew that every day was a do-over day? As long as the sun rises and the sun sets, it doesn't matter if you succeed or fail the previous day. Today is always a new day for making your dreams come true. That'll make you get out of bed. -- Download the Perfect Week Planner Book a 60-Minute Coaching Session Join our Facebook Group Visit our Content Hub to find more resources at Like the show?

I think the reason why the stage people are wearing mask because of the talent is coming from different places and the audience don't need to cause most of them are local. But that my guess on that.
