How Can Your Best Year Ever Disappoint?

Here’s a riddle for you.

How can you have a great year in your business and not feel good about it?

That’s easy. Just focus on a couple of things … what you didn’t accomplish and what you think you didn’t do well enough.

How you view anything in life is, forever and always, a matter of perspective. You all know that.

But let me tell you a quick story to illustrate just how easily and profoundly our emotional state, in the moment, can cancel out all plusses in a situation and leave us seeing only minus signs.

Bring Me Sunshine

I don’t watch the news.

I know a lot of people feel as if they need to stay informed. That’s fine, but I prefer to take a different approach.

What Are You Missing Out On?

I want to tell you a story.  It’s kinda funny and kinda sad at the same time, but something I’m able to laugh about.

It Doesn’t Take Much

If you’re a professional, offering services to the public, you want your clients to think of you as a “trusted provider” … someone they know will take care of them and look out for their best interests.

The Secret to Winning Is NOT What You Think!

Running a business presents you with a never-ending string of challenges. Sometimes they seem overwhelming … as if you’re playing a game you can’t win.

It’s the rare person who’s never experienced that sense of having too much to handle … of facing such big a gap between where you are now and where you need to be that you have no idea how you’re going to close it.

Have you ever been there? Of course you have.

Well, I’ve got a blazing insight for you … straight from the 5th game of this year’s World Series!

A Good Day

What constitutes a good day in your world? And what makes a bad day a bad day?

It’s all a matter of perspective, isn’t it?

There’s what happens and then there’s how you view it. Some see snow falling and cringe. Others admire the beauty.

This Is What’s Making You Tired!

It was bothering me … taking up mental and emotional space … and I wasn’t doing what I needed to do to resolve the issue, so it continued to bother me.

What was it? An issue with my accountant. I’ll tell you more in a moment.

But does it matter what the issue was?

No.

Because life is full of stuff you have to deal with.  If it isn’t one thing, it’s another.

The issues themselves don’t matter.  

The only thing that matters … and it matters a lot … is this:

Do you deal with them … or don’t you?

The Key to Navigating Difficult Conversations

What do people want more than anything when it comes to the conversations and interactions they’re engaged in, especially those that are difficult or have the potential to become tense and lead to conflict?

John Lennon – The Key To Life

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.”
