The Business Dream…
Please take a moment to THINK about your business goals.
Maybe you are a SOHO (Small Office Home Office) dreamer.
Maybe you have grown to experience the joys of a rapidly expanding enterprise.
Or maybe you have just passed the big hurdle moving from basic subsistence to full sustainability.
Making Abundance a Habit…
Please take a minute to watch our inspiring little video on abundance. It is a completely different approach to a concept people want more than anything else.
Just take a breath… engage… and THINK!
Think about your life right now. Are you living in abundance or want?
Think about everyone around you. Does everyone have more than enough, or are they struggling to find direction?
Just stop and think.
The question then becomes, have you made abundance a habit?
This is a very big deal.
Making Goals a Habit…
SET GOALS is the fourth color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum, because you can’t make the leap from here to your vision, all in one jump. You can’t just “do” a mission. You need specific, tangible targets to give you immediate direction — ones which will lead thereafter to even greater destinations.
When you set specific GOALS, you target future accomplishments with precision and clarity. The first step in getting “EVERYTHING” you want is to specify exactly what “EVERYTHING” is.
Making Commitment A Habit…
Please take a minute to watch our inspiring little video on the power of commitment.
Just take a breath… watch… and THINK!
Think about your life right now, and how committed you are to its direction.
Think about your commitment to everyone around you.
Just stop and think!
The question then becomes, have you yet made commitment a habit?
A habit, of course, is something you do automatically, intuitively, or instinctively.
To understand why HONOR is critical to your success, click play on the Smarter in a Minute clip above >> take a breath >> and THINK >>
When we think of a giant word like excellence we generally see it through the lens of quality or worth.
Like excellence, a lack of honor drives you further away from the life you love.
A life of high worth and achievement.
According to the urban dictionary, Honor has many uses, all of them good. If you are called a man of honor, you are respected. If someone honors you, they recognize and award you for your achievements.
The only true gift a leader must possess is vision.
One of my best friends is a man who is considered a Christian Statesman, Sir John Edmund Haggai.
Author of numerous books on leadership, this single quote has stuck with me for my entire career…
“The leader seeks to communicate his vision to his followers. He captures their attention with his optimistic intuition of possible solutions to their needs. He influences them by the dynamism of his faith. He demonstrates confidence that the challenge can be met, the need resolved, the crisis overcome.”
Parsing this out, you quickly get the idea that…
When I was completing Think TQ & Grow Rich, I looked back at all the wisdom of the ages and came to this conclusion.
The people who made it over the years were all considered nuts by their friends, families, bosses, coworkers, everyone who they came into contact with.
Napoleon Hill documented this perfectly in his Think and Grow Rich book of the late 1930s. Then, it was about stuff like automobiles, radio, TV, phones, etc.
Decades later, my dear friend Robert Schuller wrote a book on a very crazy topic: Possibility Thinking.
Billions Are Being Spent To Make Machines Smarter… But Who’s Going to Make You Smarter Than a Machine?
We have become a “survival of the smartest” global economy where human capital needs to be retooled, reimagined, and reinvented. And we need to do it quickly.
Put simply, we need to make people — not just machines — smarter about what they think and do each day — at work and at home.
To achieve this, The World Excellence Project has developed and deployed a smart new App designed to make you smarter in the moment.
“Stress is the trashcan of modern life. It builds up to overflowing then all you have is garbage spread all over your life. There is a simple key to reducing stress in your life… just be yourself.” ~ E. R. Haas, Author The Invisible Billionaire
The Hard Way or the Easy Way…
There is a hard way to build a company and there is an easy way to do it.
The hard way is what most people choose, relying on experience and trial and error — which is WHY 50% of all businesses fail within 36-48 months.
The easy way is to invest an hour a week in actual strategic planning — not general business planning which is useless — and determine what you are going to make happen. This is the key to growing the next Apple, Whole Foods, Nike… even the next hot new restaurant.
Making Every Minute Matter Is Not Just A Great Idea…
Think TQ is all about measuring your Time Quotient (TQ), your ability to achieve the results you want in the time you have.
To instantly understand this, click play on the video clip above >> focus your thoughts for a moment >> and take a mental inventory.
Do you spend your time wisely?
Do you know where your time is spent versus invested?
Do you harvest maximum value from every precious minute in your day?
Or, do you permit these 3 thieves to rob you of your future:
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
Kindness Is Essential to Your Success…
We you think of a truly powerful and successful person, what do you see?
Drive, for sure.
Mastery of success-essential skills?
Always operates out of a higher sense of passion and purpose?
Is generous, appreciative and thankful for what they have now, not just in the pursuit of more?
Emotionally committed to helping others thrive?
A person who inspires hope in others… a powerful compassionate leader?
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.
Accept Thy Self: Heal Thy Self…
When you do, you earn the freedom to pursue your dreams to the full extent possible!
All of our hopes and dreams begin in our imagination.
What we call our Someday Dreams in Success On Purpose…
Someday I will go to Alaska…
Someday I will learn to play the piano…
Someday I will be married to a wonderful, warm and loving person…
Someday my family will enjoy the fruits of all my hopes and dreams.
Of course, the list is endless… because our imaginations are boundless.
