When You Find It Hard to Start (Do This!)

Apr 21, 2021
 

Every time I had an idea, I'd turn it into an even bigger idea.

It'd become so big and so complicated that it never got off the ground.

I don't have time to do that!

How would I do that, with all that I have going on already?

Have you ever let what's ideal get in the way of just getting started?

That's what I was doing.  GO BIG OR GO HOME, right?

Well not if you can't get yourself to begin stepping out of the house, first!

If you have a desire to create something new in your business and life but have had a hard time getting started, you might be falling into this same trap.

In this video, I share the 3 swing thoughts that I use to get me unstuck and MOVING!

CEO Business Owners Know Something Most People Don't

Mar 13, 2021
 

Martha Graham, who danced all the way to her grave at age 96 years old, has this to say about the journey of all artists.

"There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening
that is translated through you into action,
and because there is only one of you in all time,
this expression is unique.

If you block it,
it will never exist through any other medium
and be lost.
The world will not have it.

It is not yours to determine how good it is;
nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep the channel open.
You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work.

You have to keep open and aware directly
to the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open.

No artist is ever pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.
There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction;
a blessed unrest that keeps us marching
and makes us more alive than the others."

The greatest gift you have as an entrepreneur is what Martha Graham calls "a blessed unrest". 

You're...

How Do I Become More Consistent in My Business?

Feb 14, 2021
 

Do you ever struggle with staying consistent in your business?

I remember becoming overwhelmed by all the problems and stuff that had to be done.

There was anxiety, stress, and overwhelm.  The more I pursued my goals the louder it became.

Is something wrong with me?  Maybe I should just slow down, pull back, lower my expectations...

Then I'd be thinking, "why can't I be more consistent?"

How is it that some people just seem to be so consistent at growing their business and I'm over here struggling my ass off?

Where focus goes, energy flows.

And my focus was off...

In this short video, I'm going to share with you the #1 focus shift that made me and the clients I work with more consistent and energized!  

It's so simple but not common practice.

Do You Suffer From Short Term Planning Fatigue?

Feb 08, 2021
 

Goals aren't a place to get to, they are a place to come from.

- Rich Litvin

 

What's your relationship with setting big goals in your business? 

There's magic in thinking big--but bigger isn't always better.

Far too often, I'd sit down at the beginning of the year and set some BIG goals.

A month into the year, I'd look at my goals.

"Damn, how am I going to get there?

It's kind of funny because in January when I wrote them out I was jacked!  

"What changed?"

I start to realize how busy I am, limited on resources, and time.

"Well, maybe I'm just overextended, maybe I should renegotiate with myself what I can get done this year..."

I was suffering from short-term goal-setting without answering this fundamental and powerful question first.

"What did I want to be the best at?"

It wasn't another S.M.A.R.T goal or three-year plan that I lacked. 

It was knowing what I really wanted and committing myself to create it. (no matter how long it took)

Leading Change is Hard (Until You Address This One Thing)

Sep 02, 2020

 

You've heard it many times: “People resist change.”  Do they?

Give somebody one million dollars and they’re not going to hesitate to make changes.  

If there was a magic pill that was scientifically proven to cause weight loss safely, people would buy it off the shelves faster than toilet paper in Corona 2020.

People love the idea of change, especially when it’s something they know they want in their lives.  But yet they still don’t pursue it.  Why not?

It’s not change that people are resisting, it’s the thought of losing what they have.  

It’s only normal, when contemplating a change, to cling to what you know and what you already have.  Even though it’s not what you want--it’s familiar.  

At times guilt will arise:  “I should be grateful for what I have.” (especially considering the world today)

If not guilt, then it’s worry and ...
