Comfort Zone

27/08/2012

It’s natural to feel uncomfortable with something new. But if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. And if you’re not happy with what you have, it’s time to do something different, which requires stepping out of your comfort zone.

This is nothing new, you’ve been doing it since you were born. The first time you walked, your first day of school, first date, etc. Firsts are always uncomfortable, but the fastest way to get comfortable is to just do it!

Life On Your Own Terms

13/08/2012

The feeling of expectation can become overwhelming. Parents, siblings, spouses – at times it can feel like we’re letting them down by choosing to do something out of the ordinary.

But when you choose to live life on your own terms, you’ll notice a sense of peace that comes from doing your thing. And those that are truly your loved ones want nothing more than for you to be at peace.

Success is a habit!

6/08/2012

It doesn’t happen overnight.
It comes from making a habit of doing the right things, over and over, day in and day out.

“Most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year, but severely underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!”

- Tony Robbins

5 Habits of Remarkably Successful Entrepreneurs

2/07/2012

1. Time doesn’t fill them, they fill their time. Deadlines and time frames establish parameters, but typically not in a good way. The average person who is given two weeks to complete a task will instinctively adjust his effort so it actually takes two weeks. Forget deadlines, at least as a way to manage your activity. Tasks should only take as long as they need to take. Do everything as quickly and effectively as you can. Then use your “free” time to get other things done just as quickly and effectively. Average people allow time to impose its will on them; remarkable people impose their will on their time.

2. The people around them are the people they choose. Some of your people drive you nuts. Some of your customers are obnoxious. Some of your friends are selfish, all-about-me jerks. You chose them. If the people around you make you unhappy it’s not their fault. It’s your fault. They’re in your professional or personal life because you drew them to you – and you let them remain. Think about the type of people you want to work with. Think about the types of customers you would enjoy serving. Think about the friends you want to have. Then change what you do so you can start attracting those people. Hardworking people want to work with hardworking people. Kind people like to associate with kind people. Successful people are naturally drawn to successful people.

3. They have never PAID they’re dues. Dues aren’t paid – past tense. Dues GET paid, each and every day. The only real measure of your value is the tangible contribution you make on a daily basis. No matter what you’ve done or accomplished in the past, you’re never too good to roll up your sleeves, get dirty, and do the grunt work.  No job is ever too menial, no task ever too unskilled or boring. Remarkably successful people never feel entitled – except to the fruits of their labor.

4. Failure is something they accomplish, it doesn’t just happen to them. Ask people why they have been successful. Their answers will be filled with personal pronouns: I, me, and the sometimes too occasional we. Ask them why they failed. Most will revert to childhood and instinctively distance themselves, like the kid who says, “My toy got broken…” instead of, “I broke my toy. They’ll say the economy tanked. They’ll say the market wasn’t ready. They’ll say their suppliers couldn’t keep up. They’ll say it was someone or something else. And by distancing themselves, they don’t learn from their failures. Occasionally something completely outside your control will cause you to fail. Most of the time, though, it’s you. And that’s okay. Every successful person has failed. Numerous times. Most of them have failed a lot more often than you. That’s why they’re successful now. Embrace every failure: Own it, learn from it, and take full responsibility for making sure that next time, things will turn out differently.

5. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland. Everyone says they go the extra mile. Almost no one actually does. Most people who go there think, “Wait… no one else is here… why am I doing this?” and leave, never to return. That’s why the extra mile is such a lonely place. That’s also why the extra mile is a place filled with opportunities. Be early. Stay late. Make the extra phone call. Don’t just tell your people what to do – show them what to do and work beside them. Every time you do something, think of one extra thing you can do – especially if other people aren’t doing that one thing. Sure, it’s hard. But that’s what will make you different. And over time, that’s what will make you incredibly successful.
