Who’s Going to Stop YOU? 

The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.

There are many things that once seemed impossible until you did it. Yes – YOU did it. 

A 6-hour hike, a promotion, negotiating a raise, lose 10 pounds, start and grow a company…whatever it is, the only thing stopping you from getting it done is you.

Yesterday You Said Tomorrow.

We have all done it. Procrastinate. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Tomorrow you will say the day after. Why do you procrastinate? Because you are afraid of failing? Or maybe even… afraid of succeeding?

Whatever it is, own it. If you don’t do it. Somebody else will.

It’s Your Attitude That’s The Problem

We have all encountered those people who are debbie-downers and to succeed in life we need to surround ourselves with positive energy. It’s important to do a self-check as well to see what type of energy you are bringing into your workplace and/or personal life. Needless to say, we all prefer working with positive, energetic people so wouldn’t you want to be one of them?

I recently encountered an individual that had the skills, but their attitude was negative when faced with (even) small issues throughout the project. My brain made the obvious conclusion that I should avoid working with this individual again as it dampens my own energy for the project. The problem wasn’t the problem, it was the person’s attitude towards the problem that’s the problem – and clearly they didn’t understand their attitude just cost them future contracts.

Do a reality check on your own attitude now before it hinders your work or personal progress!

What is your major definite purpose in life?

We want to do many things in life. Some of us set goals but are they all surrounded around one major definite purpose? For example, if you want to be the world’s best marketer your goals might be:

  1. Consult for at least 5 Fortune 100 companies in the next year;
  2. Have at least 3 campaigns that go viral and exceeds client success metrics in the next year;
  3. Attend one marketing conference per quarter as a speaker to network and meet other awesome marketers.

The list goes on… have you started your list yet?

What’s the best that could happen?

We honestly don’t think about this enough. The tendency for most people is to think of the worse that can happen. Lately I’ve been attempting to change this tendency, by wiping negative thoughts from my head and thinking my way to success. Surprise! It’s been working. Try it for yourself and good things will happen!
