5 Ways To Get More Out of Life

"Nature" by usamedeniz

“Nature” by usamedeniz

It’s not a big secret, Americans are glum about their futures.  A recent Pew Research Study shows that most Americans are worried about money, their futures, and the direction of the country.  All of this makes for a pretty gloomy outlook on life.  However many of us are doing what we can to pull ourselves out of this funk.

At $10.4 Billion (with a B), the self-help market show no signs of decline.  We are all looking for a solution to what troubles us.  And we are willing to spend LOTS of money on the problem.

But I would argue that much of that money is wasted and we would be better served by following a simple plan to not only pull ourselves out of the emotional tailspin, but to really get the most out of our daily lives.

You Are Awesome

You are awesome.No matter what anyone else says, thinks, or does…you are awesome.

Do you know that? Do you believe it?

You should.  Because if you don’t believe you are awesome, your clients never will.

You have to believe that you are awesome so that every phone call, chat, email, and text will be filled with you and your awesome-ness.  And when THAT happens, people will respond.

And they will respond to YOU, not the price, the service, or the product.  You.If you feel like you have something you need to learn to become MORE awesome, learn it.  But never forget…no matter what….

You. Are. Awesome.

Failure is NOT an Option: The 5 Things You Gotta Know to Succeed

“If you can only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet;
How important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. 
– Fred Rogers

No one wants to fail.  We all strive to be successful in everything that we do: starting businesses, relationships, balancing the checkbook.  And it’s this desire to succeed that creates the day-to-day pressure that we all fight with and struggle.

Add to that the emotional struggles with isolation, self-worth, motivation, ego, pride, love.  Each day is a battle and failure is never an option.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.  What if I could guarantee your success?

Miracles Still Happen

I love it when you least expect it, something rocks your world!  I cam across this video and it had a tremendous effect on me.  Please take a few moments and watch it, then let’s chat for a moment after…

What strikes me so dramatically about this video is that the blind kindness of another person sparked a radical change in this man. Will he relapse and go back to the drugs?  Who knows? But in that moment, a miracle happened.  A prayer was answered and he realized, maybe for the first time, that the choice was HIS and HIS ALONE!

And we have the same choice today – will you be positive or negative?  Will you be uplifting or tear others down?  Will you give a blessing or keep it to yourself.

You never know what the person next to you is going through or how their life is transpiring.  But you have a choice to make a positive or negative impact on it.  The choice is yours.

What does this video inspire you to do?
