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.
Without question, your natural creativity is your MOST important asset and is responsible for everything good in your life.
The simple fact is, everyone, is NATURALLY CREATIVE… but most people (over 90%) are not using their most basic gifts and talents…
So they unwittingly work AGAINST themselves rather than put their innate creativity to work FOR them.
People have the wrong impression on what it means to be creative.
People think it is others who are naturally creative and don’t realize they too have an inner-creative genius driving their imagination.
Passion in Business is a Big Deal…
Maybe the biggest deal of all.
If you are not good at what you do, you will not succeed.
Equally, if you are good but not truly passionate, you will not succeed.
It is one of those universal laws of business.
If your business does not have a splendid sense of passion, purpose, and mission — the kind of passion that makes you want to get up early and stay up late — you will certainly have problems!
When you have an unstoppable sense of MISSION and PURPOSE, all the other things you must do to run a highly successful business makes sense.
All you need to do is armor up, step up, and slay them.
Which, of course, is much easier said than done!
When we were crafting The Excellence Habit, it became obvious to us that there are powerful inward forces holding people back from high achievement.
Huge, scary, fire-breathing dragons that cause us to shrink from the fray, run and hide while we wait until the time is just right to pursue our goals.
Dreams & Visions…
Every person who starts a business dreams of success.
Dreams of the day when they find freedom, peace of mind, and high cash flow.
We in business all HOPE things will work out, but realize there are many ups and downs with lots of potholes on the road to success.
Hope & Power…
At some point, we realize HOPE is not enough and that real POWER is needed.
Last week, we discussed how to become more Efficient and Effective by doing your 4 R’s more frequently:
Doing the Right Things… the Right Way… for the Right Reasons… all at the Right Time.
This week, we are going to tackle PROCRASTINATION—a word that causes most of us a tremendous amount of grief—and keeps us from consistently doing things at the Right Time… if at all.
Ultimately, the Excellence Habit is all about the inculcation of great ideas…
POSITIVE IDEAS that shape your performance.
To succeed, you MUST have a constant flow of great ideas… a reservoir to depend on for true innovation.
To motivate you to take bold action.
When we run out of ideas, we run out of hope.
Have you been working harder and harder and still haven’t achieved the success you desire?
Would you like to know WHY?
Factually, scientifically, precisely?
If you’re like the vast majority of our customers, you have read all the books… listened to the tapes… attended the seminars…
BUT… there’s still a barrier between where you are now, and where you want to go.
The Proverable Aha Moment…
A flash of inspiration and illumination…
A moment of unexpected insight and discovery…
An epiphany—a sudden revelation and awareness…
Yes, I am sure you know what an Aha Moment is… so the question becomes… how do you achieve this moment many times a day, rather than just once or twice in a lifetime?
A Life is a Terrible Thing To Waste…
It is also a wonderful thing to embrace!
Most people go through their lives with a deep case of Success Myopia… they have no vision beyond the obviousness of their lives.
They fail to see the ever-present opportunities, the signs pointing to a better life, and the big milestones in their lives.
Without vision you WILL perish. Your dreams die, your hopes fade, and you find yourself in a thorny field of deep regrets.
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.
Today our incredible new Time Prism — The World’s Smartest App™ became REAL…
18 months of dreaming, planning, working, writing, editing, and a hundred other functions you would never guess.
Today it became real on Google Play.
On Tuesday, it will become real on the Apple Store.
Thousands of years of wisdom in the palm of your hand…
Driven by the world’s first Transparent Learning Engine.
Two-thirds of the businesses started in the last two years will not be here in 2020. You can WIN, but you must PLAN to win… then PLAY to win.
No sports team would ever win a single game if they didn’t do BOTH. The game of business is a professional sport played with real money… real people… real hopes and dreams.
Ignore the reality, you will not make it.
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.
