Problem Solving

Successful people dig-in and solve their own problems. Whether it’s increasing your revenue stream or completing your literary masterpiece the time, effort, and energy you put in to complete your work is your most precious resource.

Don’t waste your life (time x effort x energy) on fads or in a race to become an average and mundane brand that brands average distractions to keep people average.  Offer more value, more connections, more creativity than anyone else. Be the artist who creates their dreams and solves the problems that change the world.

Believe that you can do it and stay focused until the task is done. The alternative, pecking and scrolling the hours away into your cell phone isn’t as awesome getting out there and completing the challenge.

Thriving during Challenges

Challenges will return again and again on your journey to greatness, so remember the processes that helped you get through your tough times.

We all know that despite the forecast or any weather predictions, a storm can appear randomly on any day.

When you write down the process that helped you remain focused during the storm. You create a pathway through chaos that you can use again and again to thrive during difficult circumstances.

Whether it is a soundtrack of motivational speeches, a playlist with epic music, or a walk around the block with deep focused breathing (these are mine). Discover your own process to get you through any problem. What works for you may not work for others, and no matter the method, kick grass while doing it.

Rinse and repeat your steps, and stow it away like your umbrella for greatness.

The day is yours!

Seeking the Magic Bullet

After endlessly searching for the next magic bullet to make your business better or refurbish your mental focus, you’ll probably find that you’ve had what you needed all along.

To the searchers, I tell you to keep searching. For those that lack confidence, I tell you to keep searching. For those that believe happiness and joy are products and tools some else has, keep searching.

All the things that will drive you to be your best are right where they have always been, inside you. The caveat is learning and using knowledge to inform your on your quest, but the attitude, the persistence, and the vision for greatness is right where it has always been, inside you.

Choices

Don’t take the easy choice.

Make the big decision that changes your life forever.

A Dream Diverted

When you fill your day with tasks and obligations that divert you from your purpose, even if the tasks are positive and helpful to others, anger and resentment are built within your heart because you aren’t living up to or fulfilling your true purpose.

Find a way to do what you love everyday. Find a way for your dreams, your vision, your purpose to flourish everyday.

This will deepen the love within you. You will grow in love. And in turn, you can share your gifts of love, generosity, kindness and gratitude, without hurting yourself in the exchange.

Focus

Focus on your work that makes the world beautiful. Leave the fear behind. Make magic.

Step by Step

Breathe. Go slow when you have to, fast when you can. No matter what, get moving, go now
