It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

What If???

As we close out 2018 and look forward to 2019, it’s a great time to take inventory of how far we’ve come, and where we want to go in 2019.

Many of us had a wonderful year, full of opportunities, challenges and positive results.

Some had real problems, professionally, emotionally and financially.

Regardless, it’s time to stop for a moment and ask the BIG question… “What If?”

What if I had worked a bit smarter… how much further down the line would I be?

What if I had stopped long enough to THINK a bit more each day… what opportunities would I have been able to seize?

What if I had taken time more seriously… what could I have accomplished?

Lose Weight ~ Gain Success

Lose Weight ~ Gain Success

Fitness Matters…

When we created the Time Prism we spent a great deal of time deciding the order of the 10 colors.

Some felt that Mission or Attitude needed to be the first color because everyone knows, “attitude is everything!”

Others thought that having real goals, in writing with hard-target deadlines was most important.

And others still felt team building skills, organization and time management should be numero uno!

Your sense of purpose and MISSION… your ATTITUDE… your ability to set Smart GOALS… and your ability to establish realistic PLANS to achieve your goals.

Business Strategy

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

That, of course is the desire.

But the reality is, most businesses will simply ignore the idea of creating an actual strategy, instead, attempting to throw a bunch of random tactics at the day to day issues every business faces.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

The Power of Unconditional Commitment

The Power of Unconditional Commitment

Total Commitment…

As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.

Today it is on the power of total commitment.

As we say in The Golden Game, there is a big difference between INTEREST and COMMITMENT.

Think about this the next time you order bacon and eggs.

The hen is merely interested in your breakfast…

The pig is totally committed!

Commitment can be thought of as your intention to produce a result.

A-B-C: Always Be Closing

Leading A Sales Revolution…

As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.

Today it is on the process of turning a prospect into an actual paying customer.

As we say in The Golden Game, there is a big difference between MARKETING and SELLING.

Marketing is all about values and establishing the customer’s wants, desire and need for what you have to offer.

Selling is the belly-to-belly dance where you part the prospect with money, provide him a fabulous product and service, and he presumably becomes your customer for life.

Winning In Business is a Street-Smart Affair…

Street-Smarts Rule…

It takes all kind of smarts to make the world go around.

Here’s an observation from J. B. Smoove…

“There’s book smart, there is street smart, there’s relationship smart, there’s too many different kinds of smarts to know all of them. Everybody doesn’t know every kind of smart. There’s money smart, there’s movie smart, there’s computer smart. There’s just too many different kinds of smarts for people to know all the smarts.”

The Winds of Change Always Brings Storms…

I have always loved the above quote from Warren Buffett, the most successful investor in history.

The key word is “chronically”.

All businesses present their own unique challenges.

Some are quick and easy fixes.

Some require time and money.

Some are not worth the trouble keeping alive.

Strategy vs. Tactics…

Can you run your business without a long-term strategy?

Of course not!

Fact: Over 50% of all businesses started 4 years ago are gone.

If you start a business today, odds are that 4 years from now, you will be out of business.

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…

The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th!

The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions.

There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year. But to do this, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.

We are all creatures of habit…

The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is well documented.

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

I always love to read this quote by Maya Angelou around the new year, as it sums up a hundred pages of thoughts in a single sentence, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Isn’t this what we all want?

A life filled with passion and purpose?

A life of compassion and hope?

To thrive with style?!

Of course it is!

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

The App Napoleon Hill Would Have Loved and Wanted You To Have!

In 1937, Dr. Napoleon Hill penned a book that would sell millions of copies and become the touchstone for self-improvement readers everywhere.

He titled it, Think and Grow Rich… a book designed to connect the dots between our imagination… our ideas… the thoughts we think… and our ultimate success in life.

Around the same time, a young scientist named Albert Einstein opined that, “Education is not merely the learning of facts. But rather, education is training the mind to think.”

WOW — what a great idea — a system to get us to think and grow rich.

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity…

When we created Success on Purpose the idea of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction in life was a big question mark.

We see the finding authenticity to be a connection issue.

Connection with your VALUES…

Connection with your VISION…

Connection with your ROLES…

If you live your values while pursuing your visions in all the various areas of your life, you have Authentic Direction.

If you live someone else’s vision… or someone else’s values… you will certainly have problems in finding Authentic Roles.

Leadership Thoughts…

Leadership Thoughts…

Leadership…

Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.

In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward.

To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Greatness…

We all know that to achieve extraordinary results we must be absolutely committed to both, the big WHY behind our actions as well as the expected RESULTS.

Commitment is one of those giant words we see as instrumental to the pursuit of both success and happiness.

It is very much a “believing is seeing” issue.

In TQ-speak, commitment is the 5th C in the 6 C’s of success as found in Success On Purpose:
Clarity of VALUES leads to clarity of VISION…

Clarity of VISION leads to clarity of ROLES…

Clarity of ROLES leads to the absolute CONVICTION that what you are about to do is the RIGHT thing to be doing…

Which leads to the unconditional COMMITMENT to doing whatever is required to achieve the vision…
