Look after your mojo!

Amongst all your hard work, take some time to feel the joy of your success. Do you bask in the glory when you accomplish something? Do you take time to celebrate and reward yourself? Why celebrate? When it’s all about the work we may have the achievement, but without taking a moment to celebrate we can become stressed and dull – being always focused on the busy. Similarly when it’s all play, we may have excitement and fun, but without results we can become drained and in denial about our life. Knowing that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and all play and no work makes Jack a drained boy – Jack (and Jill!) need to look after their mojo. How to maintain your mojo? Our mojo is that special magic that keeps us moving forward and bouncing back after a setback. Sustain your mojo by creating a healthy combination of work, play and rest. Be proud and feel the joy of your accomplishments – take time to bask in the glory and be sure to say I DID IT! Create a life you truly value by reflecting on the past and being a powerful creator of…

STOP wishing!

We sometimes wish for a better life and that our current reality was different and hope that someday things might change. Problems can arise when our wishing becomes a habit of inaction that keeps us in a fantasy land. So don’t wait for past wishes to be granted – those who wish wait longer than those who decide and act. It’s fun to wish upon a star, to throw a coin into a wishing well and to blow a wish across dandelion seeds. But how often do our wishes really come true? As we cut our birthday cake each year and make a wish do those wishes get answered? Wishing reveals a desire or longing within us. But while wishing can be fun, it can also be a place to hide from the work that needs to be done to live our best life. Some even hope for a Genie to show up or wait for others to come to the rescue. It doesn’t mean we don’t wish, it just means we decide and take action to make our wishes a reality – we take personal responsibility. We decide to get things done that matter – the things we really desire….

Success needs accountability

They say if you believe you are half way there, possibly the second half is doing the work — taking action! But I think the second half is more about having a True Believer tribe to hold you accountable to do the work, to take action. I know that 2012 was my Year of Belief and 2013 my Year of Sweat and Effort. I worked hard implementing new projects and finding my tribe. In that year the focus was on doing the work, on persistence, and on getting the results by giving value to others and by getting the support from the right mentors who were able to hold me accountable to help me to deliver on my promises. Sending in my targets and intentions, and being held accountable for achieving those results, was an important step in creating my own success masterpiece. The sweat and effort was a choice — but being kept accountable by those keen to see me succeed helped the results of the hard work along. Often with my clients, I will ask them to do some pre-work — like working on their Value-based Directions before we officially start a program. Most send me their pre-work but a few don’t. You can tell someone’s commitment early in a…

Outside our comfort zone

Creating our own success masterpiece takes courage and commitment. However, sometimes we work hard towards realising a dream that is not even ours – in reality the dream is someone else’s. When we wake up to this truth we may have a courageous decision to make. It’s time to undress our ambition and declare our aspirations and take courageous action. When making a change towards the life we choose there are often two opposing forces within: 1. Just settle for what you have 2. Don’t settle and go for what you want. One of the steps to not settling and going for what we want is to undress our ambitions and declare our aspirations, and the superpowers of belief, courage, conviction and commitment are how to do it. To undress ambition is one of the essential qualities for living the life we want. It is often fear that keeps us from declaring our ambition — the fear of what we might lose if we take a risk. It is outside our comfort zone that the truly amazing opportunities lie that propel us into the life we want. Create a life you truly value by reflecting on the past and being a powerful creator of a 2020 you’ve chosen. Let me help…

Show you have the solutions

When it comes to business there is nothing more important than having our prospective clients trusting that we can solve their problems. We need to know what problems the people we serve have. I’ve been in business for over 25 years and this is the key to more successful outcomes. Your ability to thoroughly explore this area with your client is critical and I know this is what determines those who will make more sales. When you step out with conviction and state what you believe, some will follow and some won’t. The ones that will follow you are the ones that matter. This way you get to work with people who want you to help and have more commitment. There is no point even beginning to talk about our many solutions — the how — until we have addressed all of the concerns, worries, doubts, fears and problems. I think we start with solutions far too early and don’t spend enough time on the problems, and this often ends in no sale. We must get better at leaving no stone unturned when it comes to seeking and understanding the problems our clients have and responding with compassion. If this is done well, in many cases they…
