Speak What You Seek

Tomorrow is almost here…it’s  another Monday, another week… We all have that moment where we wish the weekend could last longer. We think to ourselves how much we hate Mondays and all of the ish we have to deal with.  It’s easy and acceptable to complain… that’s what we do, especially on Mondays. Try something different. Take a different path, one equally visible but less traveled..  Instead of talking about your problems, talk about what you dream… your vision… your impact in the world  Once you do that, you’ll see things start to change because you are giving attention to … Continue reading Speak What You Seek

Always Learning

I was reminded this morning that sometimes we get so focused on the “what” that we screw up the “how”, getting in our own way. Part of growing and building is learning and course correcting. Be open to feedback, humble enough to admit it, and agile to fix it. Networking is a challenge for most people because all we think about is getting out our message and it does the DIRECT opposite of what we intend to do or meant to do. When you start from a genuine place of love and service, your focus changes and you look for how … Continue reading Always Learning

You Will Bend…But You Won’t Break

Life will present seemingly insurmountable challenges, especially when you embark on a path of change – growth, enlightenment, or just something different. There will be moments where you question what you are doing, your purpose, your mission, your vision, and yourself. You will come to resent yourself and others, or feel like you just cannot go on and you need to turn back. Expect to have these moments and more because change hurts. The process of change is NEVER easy. It requires you to face uncomfortable beliefs and thoughts, become comfortable with the unfamiliar, and release yourself from anything or … Continue reading You Will Bend…But You Won’t Break

Push Through 

Whatever you do, don’t stop.  Cry, be angry, get frustrated,  feel tired.. But DO NOT stop.  Push through, trusting and believing that things are working out to and for your good. Understand, though, that sometimes that means addition by subtraction. You have to trust that if you lose something or someone in the process, the loss is making room for what really belongs. Push through. Have faith, and push through.  Continue reading Push Through 

Move The Clouds

The pessimist complains about the overcast day and how dark it is, making it difficult to see. The optimist hopes the clouds will clear up and the day will get better.  The leader adjusts the light. The change agent says, “Learn to move the clouds… ” – Dr Gail Lewis Clouds are moved by the wind… the wind determines their speed, direction, etc.  A victim mentality complains about the impact of the clouds. The passive-aggressive mentality hopes for the best, assumes the worst, and does nothing in the meantime. The fixer address the the issue by changing course or strategy … Continue reading Move The Clouds

Burn the Ships

“Burn the Ships…” When Cortés and his men made land at the New World in 1519, he instructed his men to burn their ships, sending a very clear message that they were committed to this journey, that there was no turning back. “Burn the ships…” Can you imagine THAT conversation and how it went?!? Oh, to be a fly on THAT wall…. It probably went something like, “…but we just got here…” or “…how will we get home?” But that was the point. By burning the ships, he and his 600 or so crew were forced to make the best … Continue reading Burn the Ships

How to Get Unstuck

How to Get Unstuck Step 1 – ☑ Connect Connect to your why – your vision and purpose. Sometimes when we are stuck, it’s because we have lost sight of our why.

Step 2 – ☑ Correct Once you have connected to your why, take a look at what you’ve been doing lately. Are you actively doing things that fit your why? If not, start using your why as a filter so that you can be … Continue reading How to Get Unstuck

Quick Tips: Networking

1) Networking is a full contact sport It is not for the faint or meek. You have to go into it with a goal and do what’s necessary to achieve that goal.
