Are You Humble?

Blog560_Humble_4-27-17

So is there really a difference between being wrong and being humble?

Honestly in my opinion the two go hand-in-hand.

Being humble is not only understanding that you don’t have to be right all the time, but that you are inevitably going to be wrong in many cases and that is how it’s supposed to be.

The key is accepting and understanding it as only opening more doors for your own personal growth.

The minute we shut down others opinions, we are shutting ourselves off from our own expansion.

One of the most valuable lessons I’ve ever learned is that I have learned so much from others as a result of being wrong with my initial thoughts or perceptions.

Being humble is being able to set aside who is right was wrong in order to find out what the best solution truly is.

Let me ask you question…

Would you rather find the right solution or be right just to be right?

Being humble puts you on the same playing field with every other person around you.

It doesn’t exalt your opinions, abilities or perspectives over anyone else’s.

It leaves you open and ready to find the best solution to the problem regardless of who the information comes from.

It puts you in a position to learn and grow through those around you. Just as it should be.

If I’ve learned anything it’s that I have so much more to learn, and who better to learn from than those I surround myself with?

Case and point… if you aren’t humble, your personal growth is stunned.

So your challenge this week is to think about wear in your life you are being stubborn even when you know you maybe incorrect?

Who could you reach out to for their opinion on the struggle you are dealing with in order to push your progress forward?

Let’s get after it.

Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!

Are You Disciplined?

Blog560_Disciplined_4-20-17

Nothing incredible was ever created without a mass amount of discipline.

Discipline is simply a commitment to a cause.

A commitment to overcoming, finding the answer, never stopping until whatever you set out to accomplish is finished.

There are several types of discipline, but I am going to dive into two kinds today.
1. The discipline needed for have to projects.
2. The discipline needed for want to project.

Which discipline do you think is stronger and more unbreakable?

Well… the discipline needed for have to projects is in alignment with what most of us would you define as our jobs.

Yes we are committed to them but at the same time, how committed are we really?

Through talking with hundreds of individuals over the years, what I have found is that you’re only as committed as we have to be for have to projects.

In other words, we do what needs to be done to make those we are reporting to happy.

In most cases nothing more and nothing less.

Now let’s talk about want to projects.

When we truly desire something or to be involved in something, there is a completely different approach with our actions.

Our actions are methodical, strategic, multifaceted, caring, detailed and complete. I’m sure you can agree, when you want to do something, the actions you put out are of much higher quality then when you have to do something.

My question for you today is… What happens when you are able to cross both disciplines and combine them into one?

In other words what happens when you are doing something professionally that you want to do?

The answer is very simple.

We no longer see that have to projects as getting in the way. We now see them as on the way.

When we are doing what we love and what we want to do, the have to’s are much more few and far between and when they do appear, we do them with the care and detail needed to create success for the big picture.

Of course even when you are doing exactly what you want to do, you will be faced with challenges.

The main take away however is that in the face of those challenges, you will be firing on all cylinders.

Why?

At the end of the day, it’s attached to exactly what you want to do and when you were doing what you desire you are inspired.

When you are inspired, you thrive.

My challenge for you today is to take a look at your life and determine how much of your discipline on a daily basis is comprised of have to and want to discipline.

If you don’t like what you see, there is only one person who can change that.

Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!

Develop Yourself, Achieve Your Goals

Blog560_DevelopAchieve_4-13-17

Talking is simple.

When it comes down to it, taking action is just as simple.

Day in and day out we are inundated with conversations focused on if only scenarios.

If only I had more…

If only I were…

I wish I could…

You fill in the blank.

Case and point; you know exactly the conversations I’m referring to.

The most amazing part of this scenario is that everything we desire is 100% in our reach if we are willing to put the necessary time into ourselves.

It’s a fact that if we spent as much time developing ourselves and strategically working on our goals as we do resenting the fact that we haven’t reached them, we would already be there.

Many people spend years resenting their lack of opportunity and the success of others all the time failing to realize this is only wasted time they could be using to make whatever they desire happen for themselves.

How do I know this?

This was me for years of my life.

Resenting the success others had and labeling it as lucky.

Of course some people are blessed enough to be born into some things they desire, but no one is born into everything they desire.

In every case there is work to be done and it is always on ourselves.

As soon as I began putting time into my own personal development, I realized what had been missing in my life and that no one was responsible for that lack but myself.

Once I discovered this, it became very simple to see that putting time into my own development was going to enable me to create everything I desired in all areas of my life.

All I have to do is simply put in the work and learn to master what I desire.

Yes the world is filled with magic, but what I came to find is that you can steer that magic based upon what you think about, dream about, and dedicate your time to.

So the question is… are you willing to put the time into yourself that’s needed to achieve what you truly desire?

As soon as you make that decision, you are off to the races.

Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!


The First Step For Weight Loss

Every success starts with step 1. Check it…

The Edge

Blog560_Edge_4-6-17

Of course we've all heard the phrase "having the edge."

But in case you haven't… I'm speaking of our perception of another having some type of advantage.

Now many will look at someone who has an edge and start pointing the finger saying they have an unfair advantage and are lucky.

Why is that?

Well, because it's much easier than the truth.

The truth is that in 99% of the cases, the edge was earned.

We all like to pretend we know everything about everything, but if I've learned anything it's that I don't know much about anything.

Only when I adopted this mindset did I open up my capacity for learning.

Previous to this I found myself passing over opportunities to advance myself simply due to my stubbornness. The only person who lost in those situations was me.

Yes it's much easier to point that finger blaming others for being born with a so-called Silverspoon because when we do we automatically are the victim. When we play the victim we act like there's nothing we can do and that we don't have control of the situation.

This is far from the truth.

In fact the only thing that we do have control of in our lives is our own situation.

Ok so if this is true, then how do we get the edge ourselves?

Honestly the answer is much more simplistic than you would ever imagine.

Honor those who have the edge by being happy for them.

This is the law of attraction.

Whatever we think about, we bring about in our lives. On the other hand, whatever we bash or think about in a negative light, we repel from our lives. That includes success.

When we recognize others and are truly happy for others success, we are drawing that in for ourselves as well.

I also learned this the hard way. For years I resented those who I thought were "lucky."

The moment I was sincerely happy for others success, success according to my own personal definition began to pour into my life.

So the question is, do you want the edge in your life?

If so, it's time to make the choice to begin looking at those who you feel have the edge and honor that by being truly happy for them.

The rest will take care of itself.

Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!
