Keep Your Attitude Up

The Freedom Effect

Just taking some time to reflect this morning. I found this great quote. “For you were indeed called to freedom; only do not let your freedom be an incentive to your flesh and an opportunity or excuse for selfishness, but through love you should serve one another.” As I have been reflecting on the calling and application of leadership (or management or business ownership), I have been challenged that the leadership model adopted and embraced by so many has significant…

Strategies to help you achieve any goal #4

Transcend your limiting beliefs My suggestion is to choose one action and then do it. Then pick the next action and do that. Then keep going until you have passed the obstacle. As a coach and trainer I have seen that this aspect of life is probably the hardest for people to move past.

Strategies to help you achieve any goal #2

Practice Persistence PERSISTENCE is the one common attribute high achievers share above anything else?. They simply refuse to give up until they reach their goal. It doesn’t matter what obstacles they encounter, they just keep trying. But, in trying, they learn. If one thing doesn’t work, they make a minor adjustment and try again. Look at the goal from a different perspective. A scientist, when challenged about the number of failures he had in his experiment responded: “No, I just…

Do you want different results?

You must change your thinking! Lately, I have been approached by a number of business owners who want to see different results in business and life.

If your business were to close suddenly tomorrow:

Would anyone notice? Would anyone care?   We all need to feel wanted. (I don’t mean having your picture on the wall of a post office) As a business, is what you bring to this world of value?

Patience – The Art of Waiting – Part 2

The thing I am enjoying about this blog is that I am getting as much from writing it as I hope you are getting from reading.  Let me know? This week I wanted to finish off on my comments of last week in relation to Patience. You might recall I said that “Patience is a by product of waiting”.

Patience – The Art of Waiting – Part 1

Does waiting frustrate us or…
