Check out this link to a short 3 min video:

  • Don't stop at 1 call. 
  • Have discipline to drive your day, don't allow it to drive you. 
  • Get out....the business isn't in your office; it's out in the marketplace. Be there. 

These are simple reminders full of truth. If we are in the office it's to wrap up what we have accomplished in the field. Don't spend the day 'preparing to act' Get out there and ACT. Make it happen.

Motivational Monday #91: A.C.T.

Image result for take action

I think we call can agree that we got a TON of great nuggets out of Fridays Divisional Sales Rally. The important part now is to reflect on what YOUR top nuggets were and then find a way to implement 1 of them into your business. I don't expect us to make huge changes and implement 5+ nuggets, but if each of us implemented just 1 that would have a tremendous ripple effect in our businesses.  

What is the 1 that you are going to choose to A.C.T. on today & keep in your business to help you move forward?

Motivational Monday #90: Change the Ending

Last week out in the field I came across this quote written on a whiteboard in an office. It caught my attention so I took a picture of it to come back to later which I did over the weekend and reflected on it. 

Today is the 90th Motivational Monday that I've written and we have 90 days left in 2018. The previous 275 days we cannot change (the start), but we can start where we are (today) and change the ending. The really cool part is that we can focus on making great impact/change for the end of this year which will set the stage for our 2019 start. When we start with momentum in the right direction we can be an unstoppable force. That doesn't mean that there won't be obstacles along the way, that just means that you'll look at those obstacles as growth opportunities and not a deterrent. 

This week let's look at & act on the things/habits we can bring back or start that will help us change the ending. Our lives are not in silos so when we focus on improvement on growth in our businesses it will flow over into our personal lives too. 

Let's do it team!

Motivational Monday #89: Choosing to Act

Image result for much of your success in life is determined by how you choose to act in spite of how you feel

Some mornings we wake up feeling better or more motivated than others. It's important to look at how we set up our morning from the night before as well to see if we 'set it up' for success or not. Trying to control what we can, but knowing not all is in our control. 

The quote above has been on my mind for a few weeks now so I wanted to share it with you all. you act in spite of how you feel. That part really resonated with me. I feel like in sports it's much easier to suck it up and deliver, but in life not as much. Just because it's not as easy doesn't mean it's not beneficial. Choosing to 'win the day' isn't a feeling, but a decision. My encouragement for all of us today & each day is to choose to win & pursue it, regardless of how we feel.

Motivational Monday #88: Defeated or Developing

How we react

As we are going though our days we cross tasks or situations that are stretching. These things can do 1 of 2 things to us, but never both. These situations can either Defeat us or Develop us. Our reaction, commitment & determination is what determines the outcome.

Remember that You can overcome and soar from any situation. A diamond only becomes one by being pressed hard on all sides. Gold is only refined by fire. We grow, develop and improve by overcoming obstacles both personally & professionally that are in front of us. Push through towards development and soar from there.

Motivational Monday #87: Diving in

Image result for business quotes

We have some newer products that are available to us which sis great, but now it's time to learn them. I was talking to one of you last week about how FA 3.0 was such a simple presentation because it had been around for so long that I knew it inside and out. However, FA ONE is new and with that I have the basics down for a simple 101 presentation, but don't have the details down yet to really dive in. I was then driven to remember that the only reason I knew 3.0 so well was because I would play with it for a bout 15 min each day for a couple of week in the evening. That gave me the time to tinker around, find new enhancements and ways to connect it to clients. 

I say all of this because 15 min isn't a lot of time isolated, but when compounded over a couple of weeks it makes a huge impact. If you need help with any of the tools Tom & I are just a call/email away.

Motivational Monday #86: Lights....Camera....ACTION

Image result for take action

Take Action! We act in many ways, but there are usually 1-2 key area of work/life where we hit the pause button and don't act. There could be a myriad of 'reasons' we don't act, some may even be valid but those don't get us closer to where we want to be. An inch of action forward towards your goal is better than mils and miles of intention to move forward. 

Today if you feel the pull to hold back, not call, not walk in, whatever it may be push the fear to the side for 10 seconds and go for it. Each one of YOU is capable of achieving things beyond what you dream you can. 

Keep striving, pushing & growing.
