Business Success: The Empowerment Habit

According to Chronos, “Empowerment entails creating an environment that fosters growth. For small businesses, empowerment can take many forms, each with the potential to enhance your organization’s efficiency and profitability, as well as your ability to work with others toward common goals. Sharing power might be hard at first, but focus on the long-term benefits of improving the function of all the various aspects of your business.”

The Passion Habit

Passion is one of those words that people use often without really understanding the original meaning of the word.

When most people refer to “passion”, they use it to mean strong emotions reflecting an intense desire or boundless enthusiasm.

That’s a good start.

But passion actually means something entirely different:

A Willingness to Suffer for What You Love.

The Wellness Habit

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.

It is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

A good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare.

“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.

According to several studies, the most common health problem in the world is depression. This problem is often manifested in the form of insomnia, stress, poor nutrition, physical inactivity, obesity, and heart disease, etc.

Irrespective of a person’s age, size, shape or perceived attractiveness, it is wellness that is the cornerstone of quality of life. It determines how we ultimately look, feel, interact with others and thrive in life and work.

The Authenticity Habit

The Truth Will Set You Free…

You’ve heard this your whole life.

But it is hard to know what is true, factual, and absolutely authentic.

Fake news, fake photos, fake people…

They live to deceive.

Which, they believe gives them power.

In fact, the opposite is true.

The Honor Habit

It’s Independence Day here in America!

We fought with honor for the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

We fight for freedom.

We fight for success.

We fight for the right to be challenged.

We fight for the right to find our own path in life, unencumbered by the shackles of bondage and despair.

Samuel Smiles said it best…

The Goals Habit

The Goals Habit

I love to start with a common definition, but we all know what a goal is and can mouth the meaning easily…

A GOAL is a DREAM with a DEADLINE.

You have some dream — more money, a second home, real career power — whatever, so the only question is, WHEN do you expect it to show up?

A great goal presupposes you know the big WHY…

And believe you have the skills to make it happen… the big HOW.

With the what, when, how, and why set the outcome is simple to see…

You either can take the actions necessary to achieve it, or not.

The Leadership Habit

What is leadership? A simple definition is that leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act towards achieving a common goal.

In a business setting, this can mean directing workers and colleagues with a strategy to meet the company’s needs.

This leadership definition captures the essentials of being able to inspire others and being prepared to do so. Effective leadership is based upon ideas (whether original or borrowed), but won’t happen unless those ideas can be communicated to others in a way that engages them enough to act as the leader wants them to act.

The Courage Habit

Courage is a giant word that simply means the ability to ACT in the face of challenges.

To ACT in the face of your fears.

To ACT when you have imperfect information.

To ACT when you know you must do the right thing, regardless of the cost.

This is a HABIT to be grown, not just a response to a condition.

The Self-Confidence Habit

When we think of building self-confidence, we understand that it means having confidence in yourself.

Duuuuh!

But, when you understand that there is a continuum we all live on, this issue starts to make sense from a practical viewpoint.

There are actually 3 different steps on the continuum:

The Miracle Habit

The term Miracle has a very simple definition…

A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency… a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences.

A miracle is an event so marvelous that it seems like it was sent from above. Catching that foul ball from the stands at the World Series? A miracle!

The Small Biz Paradox

The Small Biz Paradox…

The dilemma — you want to grow your small business to become a titan of industry.

The paradox is that your business cannot grow any bigger than its leaders.

It will never grow beyond your abilities because you simply will not let it.

In the end, the more you try to grow, the faster you will fail…

Business Success In Hours Not Years

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.

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

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.
