In times when people are confused, frightened, and need direction your leadership matters. Not lip-service to the word, but the true essence of what it means to lead in times of uncertainty, fear, and forced change.
Charles Darwin said it best, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Put another way, in this rapidly changing global economy, you either adapt or die.
We are in a time of unprecedented upheaval, a sudden and abrupt change to our way of life due to the hysteria surrounding the COVID19 virus. We must now quickly adapt or find our businesses decimated.
Every small business that makes it — leaders who turn their business into a true gold mine — has SOLVED the problems raised in this article.
They start with a good idea. They organize for success and learn to out-think… out-smart… out-hustle the competition at every step.
Their actions all lead to greater customer confidence, trust, and satisfaction.
Their value proposition is well-communicated.
Money is made, growth is fueled, and the business becomes a well-oiled profit machine.
Yes, you CAN have it all…
Look at the calendar.
Look at your life.
Is this where you thought you would be after 10-20-30 years of hard work?
You dreamed of being rich one day. Are you?
You dreamed you would be happy by now… that you would catch that gold ring and make it yours. Did you?
Interesting questions, aren’t they? Probing. Provocative.
They get to the reality of it, don’t they?
Last week we discussed the difference between hopes and wishes vs. crystal-clear EXPECTATIONS.
As I pointed out all week, what you have the RIGHT to expect is based on four Colors within your personal Time Prism:
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.
Last week we discussed how to turn ever-present opportunities into tangible results.
This week we are going to discuss achieving greater results—in every area of your life.
From now until the end of the year we will be focusing on increasing your POWER to SET and ACHIEVE tremendously BRILLIANT goals for yourself—both personally and professionally.
Last week, we talked about hope and freedom, and your God-given right to pursue your dreams with passion, power, and persistence.
This week, we will discuss the foundation of ALL success—your personal values.
Each day you spend the only life you have to live. The question is, what are you getting in return?
Are you living with a strong sense of purpose and MISSION… or are you struggling to find balance and direction?

Nothing will torpedo your chance at success faster than a poor attitude.
You can have clear and tangible goals, with the best-laid plans in the world, but if you poison the well from which opportunity springs, you’ve just killed your future.
This week, we will be getting VERY personal… asking the truly IMPORTANT questions:
Are you actually LIVING what you say you value, or are you consumed by the moment…
with no forward movement in the direction of your dreams?
The importance of knowing what you value more than something else is critical to your day-to-day performance.
All habits, our good ones, and our bad ones are based on 3 basic conditions:
1) A TRIGGER — something that gets your attention and reminds you to take some kind of action…
2) A BEHAVIOR — a specific action you will automatically take…
3) A REWARD — what you get when you recognize the Trigger and engage in the Behavior to get the Reward you desire.
Habits are based on CRAVINGS, either positive or negative.
Crave nicotine and you smoke.
Crave chocolate and you eat cake.
Crave success and you grow rich — when you take the right sequence of actions.
I have built my entire life around seizing ever-growing opportunities.
I have yet to hear even ONE knock on my door — or whack me upside my head.
Opportunities behave quite differently from what we have been trained to expect.
You must have POWERFUL LENSES with which to see and sense them.
This morning we had a wonderful conversation about getting 2018 off to the best start possible.
My advice was simple.
Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. Label the left half WHAT I DON’T WANT… and the right side WHAT I REALLY WANT…
Listen to the audio and follow along.
1 hour here and you will not only have better direction, but a real head start towards guaranteeing 2018 becomes YOUR year.
I made it a habit years ago to ruthlessly limit my exposure to junk, fake and useless news to just 30 minutes a day.
That is more than enough time to get a global perspective on what’s going on, process what is being said, and form an opinion.
Think about this.
There are only 1,440 minutes in a day (24 hours x 60 minutes).
Subtract 440 for sleep, rest, and downtime — you have 1,000 prime minutes to make all your dreams real.
“My Christmas wish for you is for you to become all you are meant to be. It is also my challenge to you. FACT: Become the best version of yourself possible, and all your hopes and dreams will be realized… because you are never given a dream without also being given the power to realize it. But, you may have to work a lot smarter than ever before.” ~ E. R. Haas, CEO
