goals: The Grind vs. Grinding It Out - 03/03/21 08:33 AM
Aspire to Grind It Out occasionally vs. Living in The Grind.
 
There seem to be a fascination almost a "hero worship" in America regarding working long hours and then bragging about your grind - as if that makes them more successful or committed than the "work/life balanced" people.
 
The "hypnotized" believe that there's some sort of badge of honor; when in fact there's more likely strained relationships at home and neglected sleep / health. Yes, you must hustle and work hard when you first start a job or open a business, but at some point you need to set boundaries and live your … (29 comments)

goals: You May Not Be Seeking Happiness - 11/19/20 07:44 AM
"People are as happy as they choose to be."
Henry Ford
 
You think you seek "happiness" and it makes sense that you do, because when we're happy, our emotions experience feelings ranging from contentment to bliss and even pleasure. But, I submit it's Joy you truly seek, that more elusive feeling that comes from being a giver, from gratitude and selflessness.
 
"If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day go fishing. If you want happiness for a year inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody."
Chinese Proverb
 
You see, happiness is emotion affected by the external. It's based on how the outside world is … (9 comments)

goals: Take Action: Get Scared, Be Excited - 11/17/20 07:33 AM
"A goal should scare you a little, and excite you a lot."
Author, Joe Vitale
 
Your action for today
is to identify a major goal
you have accomplished,
and reconnect with both
the fear and excitement
you had when you first set it as a goal.
I recently did this over the weekend.
We celebrated 17 years in San Diego, CA 
last weekend and I recalled the fear of
moving away from my hometown,
from my family & friends and
starting 2 established business over from scratch.
Fear Yes. Difficult Yes. Regrets No!

goals: Take Action: Define Your Success - 10/27/20 06:18 AM
One of my favorite questions to ask
when interviewing people on my Podcast is:
 
"What is your definition of success?"
Here's John's...
 
"Success is peace of mind in knowing you did your best."
College Basketball Coach, John Wooden
 
 
Your action for today...
is to reflect on your own definition of success
and on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being right on)
gauge where you are on your path to success.
 
My definition of success was written
many years ago and I discovered
it represented my goals well...

"Often we change jobs, friends
and spouses instead of ourselves."
~ Author, Arkbarali Jetha
 
Your action for today
is to ask someone--it could be your spouse,
friend or work colleague;
what would be one thing
they would like for you to change.
 
 
You don't have to agree to implement the change.
All you're doing is getting the information.
 
 
I actually did this with 5 trusted clients 20 years ago
and it changed the way I did business.
I do this often with my bride; 18 years of marriage.
You can quit your job, seek out new friends,
get a divorce: but you bring you - wherever you go.
