Stop Waiting for It to Get Easier

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Jim PalmerI learned 13 years ago how precious life is, and how short it can be, when I was diagnosed with melanoma. Having cancer was a defining moment in my life and I realized that that no matter what goals and dreams I had – the time to make them happen was now.  I still run my life and operate my various businesses with that same sense of urgency.

As a coach to entrepreneurs and small business owners, I hear about ideas for growth a lot. And whether the idea is based on a new product, a new or improved service, or perhaps even a new business – I’m often asked, “What is the best time to move forward?”

My answer is almost always the same: “Stop waiting for it to get easier, get into action now!”

The truth is, whether you want to operate with the same sense of urgency that I feel, as an entrepreneur I also realize that business and the way we market them changes at the speed of light. What I mean is that what’s hot or available today, may not be here tomorrow. To put a finer point on it, the product or service you want to bring to market may be attractive to customers now and could be far less attractive next year. Stop waiting for it to get easier.

The only thing waiting does is delay your success and your ability to create your own personal economic boom.

Thomas Edison learned to trust his vision about how electricity could change the world. Bill Gates learned the exact same thing about his vision of a computer on every desk and in every household. In retrospect, they might have both underestimated the results, but nevertheless, both became wildly successful. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard may not have had such lofty visions at the start of their enterprise, but they learned how to take the blinders off and follow the money.

Let me now address some lessons learned from a personal perspective. Post-cancer my life looks quite different. I have learned first-hand what the expression “When you have your health, you have everything” means. It is true. No matter what other challenges you face, facing them in good health is far easier.

My ‘season of crises’ – as I refer to it – has taught me three important life lessons.

  1. I place a much higher priority on the important people in my life. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy some of the finer things in life, but they take a far back seat to the relationships I treasure and hold dear.
  2. I strive every day to make a positive difference in the world by giving more of my time and money to those in need.
  3. I laugh more. I’ve always enjoyed a good laugh, but I now love to laugh and make people laugh. Laughter is physically therapeutic and it also makes you forget some of the challenges you’re facing, if only for a second.

Be aware of the big difference between inspired action and activity. Activity comes from the brain-mind and is rooted in disbelief and lack of faith – you are taking action to "make" your desire happen. Inspired action is allowing the law to work through you and to move you. Activity feels hard. Inspired action feels wonderful. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

 

Simple Ways to Embrace Life

Linda Joyif I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Love fully. Laugh daily. Be silly. Embrace your dreams! Feel gratitude for the simplest of pleasures. Discover the beauty of silence. Spend quiet time alone each day. Live from your heart not your head. Keep a gratitude journal. Be an inspiration to others. Shine your light for others to follow.

Be more – do less. Release fear. Allow yourself to receive the blessings of life. Living a joyful life is a choice – choose wisely. Release the shackles of self-judgment.

Step outside your comfort zone. Take baby steps each day toward the life of your dreams. Believe in the truth that anything is truly possible – because it IS! Discover the wisdom within! Be prepared for life’s curveballs and remember to duck.

Remember that you are not your past or your mistakes. Release the mistakes of the past and carry forward only the lessons they contain. You have the power to rewrite your story at any time. Journal daily.

Surround yourself with those who honor the best in you. You are a unique gift to the world and you are meant to shine. Follow your passion and you will never dread going to ‘work’ each day. To make a new friend – be a friend.

In every relationship, both personal and professional ask yourself “How can I serve?” Reach out and support the dreams of others. Join a Mastermind or two and connect with those who encourage your dreams. Imagine the possibilities then create them.

Live your life – not the life others imagined for you. Be a spiritual warrior! Embrace your Higher Power. Connect daily to your source. Live a juicy, joyful, passionate life. Your passions are your guide to your divine purpose – follow them. Write your ‘bucket list’ and cross things off each week.

View every interaction as a path to growth. Find your ‘tribe’. Look at every life experience as a tool to reconnecting with your authentic self. Visualize the life you desire. Create a sacred space in your home. Give back. Pick a cause and support it wholeheartedly.

Discover your unique passion and mission and bring it forward to make a difference in the world. Surround yourself with those who lift you up. Release those people or things that prevent you from shining your light. Believe in the power of forgiveness. Open your heart to see the divine beauty in everyone.

Read publications that inspire you to live from the inside out. Tune in to the wisdom and insights of those who have walked the path before you. Ignite your passion! Honor your body and feed your soul. Nourish your relationships. Maintain balance. Be your own best friend. Embrace change.

And most importantly – love yourself! You are perfect just as you are!

Dreams are difficult to build and easy to destroy. – Seth Godin Gray Lawrence                                                                           Focus on the WHY of life and not the HOW, remembering that where focus goes, energy flows – Gail Lynne Goodwin

 

Afraid of failure?

“If I had to live my life again, I’d make the same mistakes, only sooner.”—Tallulah Bankhead 

  Afraid of Failure? Read the following steps

Steps to Break Down Failure

Have you ever felt like a failure? I totally have. But I am not alone.

There is an epidemic of feelings of failure in any country and failure is so definitive. When you think you failed, there is not much wiggle room to be anything other than “a failure.” A horrible way to see yourself! This becomes a belief ingrained and tainting everything else we do and try. Here are four ways to break it down.

A. Lower Your Expectations

Failure is in relation to something. Usually some standard or expectation that was not met: I am not thin enough, pretty enough, smart enough. Having unreasonable expectations is more detrimental on our health than anything else. It brings in judgment, which compounds every other problem we already have.

When we have a feeling which is appropriate to the situation, and then we judge ourselves, then we worry! the problem becomes so much bigger and harder to recover from. Then, we berate ourselves for not recovering quickly with another layer of judgment. The original feeling is nothing compared to the complex mess and layers of our own judgement and fear.

Do not add them. Allow yourself to feel and do not worry, you can handle it. Be gentle and compassionate with yourself, lower those outrageous expectations! Instead of dwelling, do something. Seek a “Mentor with a Servant’s Heart”

  B. Know there is a point to trying

Past feelings of failure attempt to take away our point to trying to feel better or accomplish something. We get convinced that we will fail anyway. We assume trying hard will make us more disappointed when we do actually fail, and so we put less effort in in hopes to protect our heart. With less effort, we may actually not achieve our goal and we can say “See? I always fail. Good thing I did not try.”

The point is “Rarely is anything accomplished without trying” And if we try and don’t succeed, our heart actually feels better, not worse. We build confidence knowing that we did our best. We feel empowered because we can respond to things in life. This is giving in to your fears

  C. Notice your accomplishment

Simple. See the good in you instead of the bad. Focus on something else beside that one standard you missed. Have confidence in the efforts you did put forth. Notice other things you received from the process, a good example are  friends you’ve made along the journey and “ what you have  learned”  and how it made you grow. Remember all other accomplishments in your life. be positive

  D. Remember it is not over

We sometimes assume we failed too soon. Then we feel devastated and stop trying. If you are still alive, you could not have failed, since it is not over. Yes, your standards and expectation might change, but if you are still kicking, you cannot by definition be a failure. Readjust your expectations and try again ALWAYS -  Never Give up!!!

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can……. I can, I can!

 

Foot note for the winner in you.

Your dreams and desires to win are down to you and no one else… If no one is listening find those that will, live the life you desire with those that have trodden the path before.  Then teach those who sit in your wake.

Be the person you wish to be & leave negative in the slow lane.

When you realise you are a winner and find the next gear be ready for what awaits you.  Perhaps you are ready and now & looking for the opportunity to work for yourself  so you can help those less fortunate, with their own mental attitude, be the teacher & TEACH.  See the book available on “Are You Walking Past a Fortune

The road is paved with GOLD just open the right door in your mind and take the first step.  Gray

Study those who failed and failed again, then “WON” that came before you read the right books:  “The Secret & The Power” by Rhonda Byrne: Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, to name but a few..

“SKODA” Why Not Be Astounded and Surprised!!

Dreamers make Winners

A little different from my normal information but I am sure you will enjoy this, of course I hope it interests you enough to call my friendly sales department and Paul…If you are not in the area do visit your own sites where ever you live and let me know it boosts moral as much as your moral from seeking advice and making a purchase, Never be put off with the name, I was not!!!

“Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals.” Bob Proctor

Dreamers make Winners

A SKODA  WHY NOT?

I have driven the smallest and fastest from the historical to modern date vehicles; sports cars, including a Rally Car to the luxury, A formula 1 and the modest of vehicles.

The army gave me the opportunity to drive and fly the toughest, most are basic but they saved my life more than once!! From: a 6 wheeled vehicle including the amphibious, a tank, 8 ton trucks and Gazelle Helicopter to being a co pilot in a Harrier Jump Jet!! Now they all serve a purpose to do a specific task and job, but basic in luxury. From all the vehicles I have driven or flown I have been thrilled and excited beyond belief, but when you wish to purchase a vehicle “You” have to decide and finance whatever you can afford and or fancy from the sexiest to the ridiculous; from comfort to just style and no space even for a computer bag!!.

If you Would like a little of everything, no flying of course; This includes very high standards in luxury and gadgets to tantalise anyone, with more than enough options and other gadgets to add, should you desire them.. Then look no further than “SKODA” YES I said “”SKODA”” I have been a customer for a very long time. Last year I had a desire to see more for my money and a better view I wanted space and of course luxury with gadgets. Well Why not! So I upgraded to a “SKODA YETI GREEN LINE” from my local dealership whom I will provide details for below. I will say this they are the best dealers I have come across in a very long time: the even respect you as a person as well as a customer or potential customer, Everyone gets the same treatment!!! From the minute you walk through the door; from the receptionists to the dealers and sales people, even the Management and mechanics say hallo (yes they are all human) the only thing that does not greet you with a smile is the desk! Now when you make a purchase make sure you go for the coffee machine even that has a lot of gadgets…

My Yeti yes it is a car not the “Abominable Snowman”, but I am sure he would have been pleased.. I now have: luxury & comfort , a great view all round, a boot that would satisfy anyone, Gadgets galore and a fantastic stereo/radio system that does everything but make the tea!! The interior is superb finishes are beautiful from the inside to the exterior I cannot get enough of it, and of course it is always cleaned to keep it smiling at the world showing off its prestige and beauty.. daft as it seems I even talk to it (now that even beats my old Saab 900) I have not left the best to the last as it is “all” the best but before you get in, turn on your senses and close your eyes (before you drive off of course) Now you see in your vision the colour you desire from the great colours schemes available, You smell the fabric or even leather, the cleanliness, and honest to god the feel of comfort luxury and safety with the feeling of the best security one can get (unless you buy a tank) are second to none as you think about YOUR new SKODA! NOW you can get in behind the wheel, open your eyes now see all you now own my god the all round vision is, FANTASTIC..Put they key in the ignition gloat at the beauty and unbelievable finish of the interior, as you put your hands around the perfect steering wheel feeling the lightness and power you are about to test. Now the safety and cleverness of Skoda start to kick in – you cannot just turn the key on and go, there is a nice surprise which even benefits the health and safety issues of all animals the planet and us humans, EFFICIENCY & ECONOMY. Well what do you expect from SKODA

I could go on forever but if I did it would stop you visiting and making a purchase of your dreams…Call them visit them asking for my personal sales person without a doubt he was great, this does not take away from the all of the other staff their professionalism excitement and helpfulness as soon as you walk through the door or call!

Remember Every Vehicle made is as perfect as mine!! You will not be disappointed, now the decision & choice is Yours!!
