A big part of my role in life is to be creative. It’s up to me to design every situation in my life by being creative and determining how to take that moment in time and turn it into a masterpiece.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
The possibility I’ve created for myself and everyone around me is the possibility of abundance, prosperity, generosity, freedom, (lots of) fun, happiness, intimacy, love and in good health always.
Notice expectations, mine and others as well. Listen to others; really listen for what they say and what they don’t say. It’s not about me, loving others is all about them. Listen to their expectations. (Expectations vs. Agreements)
Life is a playground; there is plenty of time and plenty of money.
There is always enough time to do things right.
John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Most people can’t relate to me because I’m not relating to them on their level! I’m relating to others through my experiences, my (limited) view of the world. I relate to others as though they have never walked in my shoes, so I tell them what that’s like (that bores them to listen to me). Others believe their experiences are unique and that for the most part I can’t relate to them because I haven’t shared their experiences in life, or gotten into their world. The way the world occurs to me is not how it occurs for others. I don’t share myself authentically because of my fear that they won’t like me, or I won’t look good. They’re not interested in my story unless it relates to them and their life experiences. This is why I rarely connect with others at a deeper level.
FIVE CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS:
1) Not enough sales/profits.
2) Cannot save, put aside any money.
3) Don’t understand how(timing on) when to reinvest.
4) Too broad of a Niche, trying to please everyone.
5) This year is the year, (not next year) profit is not a future measurement, businesses are supposed to turn a profit.
Some people treat their business more like a hobby than a business. “Next year” is going to be the year when they’re going to cash in. We crack the code on how to have this year be the year for you to have it all. Oftentimes we take the red zone approach and focus on bottom-line profits as opposed to growth or focusing on the future. We are looking for a few leaders that are clear they don’t have all the answers and are willing to be coachable in order to have the future become available to them now. Sometimes it takes having an outside objective opinion be available to point out opportunities that are right in front of you.
The Legacy that I want to leave behind is?
Four different levels that businesses can operate from: Where does your business operate from?
What’s working, what’s not working, what’s missing, Who or what can I learn from? What’s next?
A. The Discovery of (new) information, a Breakthrough
B. The Blinders come off; you see something for the first time
C. Take committed action, develop your plan
D. The change is internalized; you commit to follow the plan
E. Sustain the change, have measurements in place (and bring your passion to the plan)
F. Enroll others in your plan (dream), share with everyone what you’re up to
G. Don’t ever give up on your dream, keep it alive and stick to the plan
