Thought of The Day
Each of us has a personal map that was developed by everyone who taught us everything they knew. They didn't know everything; therefore, the highest form of ignorance is to reject something just because it's not on your map. Your map is not the entire territory; it's just your map. Step outside your comfort zone and learn something new today.
Choosing to grow to our own next level of leadership development requires that we continue to move forward. Should we find ourselves knocked flat or stumbling along the way, it is up to us to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and keep going for it. That takes courage. As we create success around us, it is important to see that success as the stair step to our own next level, to remain committed to moving forward and redefining our own 100%, and to push ourselves from what has become comfortable into the unknown. And that, too, takes courage.
I am celebrating my birthday today! Recently I was asked how I would determine if my life was successful. My response was, "I must have fulfilled my deliberate, intentional purpose of leaving the world a better place." My commitment to myself is to enrich my life by aspiring to live On Purpose every day and as a result, inspire others to do the same. Let's make it happen and celebrate our success together.
During our toughest circumstances, there is always a light there somewhere. Have the courage to remain focused on your specific positive outcome while choosing to have a positive attitude and keep moving forward.
One of the qualities that all successful people have is they accept personal responsibility for their outcomes. Accepting personal responsibility means taking ownership for your choices and the consequences of each of those choices. Until you accept that responsibility, you are volunteering to be a victim. My coaching to you is to own your choices and live your life on purpose!
Love is in the air on this Valentine's Day. When was the last time you told yourself, I love you? That has been far too long ago. I invite you to go take a look in the mirror today, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself, I love you and you are worthy of my love. Happy Valentine's Day!
Leaders have the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. They do not set out to be a leader, but become one by the quality of their actions and the integrity of their intent. Who are you...a leader or a follower?
Measuring your wins and losses based upon someone else's successes and failures will never be a true test of your potential. Comparing your 100% to another person is either limiting or self-defeating. Make the choice to redefine your 100% daily, and you will redefine the successes you are able to create. Today is a great day to best your best.
Observe the people in your world today and recognize all of the things they do that they learned from you. You are the CEO, Chief Example Officer. Are you setting the example of what you want them to become? If the approach that you are using isn't working, change it! Let's get that handled today.
When you are focused on what you want, you are not risking failure, you are risking success. When you are focused on success, there is no failure, just learning opportunities. If you miss the mark the first time, stop, evaluate, and change your approach appropriately to get to the outcome you want.
It is tougher climbing up a hill than climbing down the hill because the benefit of climbing up is the incredible view at the top. Every day of our lives we get to make one of two choices; tough or suffering. Choose one. Keep Climbing!
There is a difference between the flag and the wind. The wind chooses its direction; the flag, on the other hand, waits for direction to be given. Learn to set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship. When you are outcome-focused and benefit-driven, the wind will be your only option because you know what you want and you will go for it!
This statement may confuse you this morning; "You don't know what you don't know until you know you don't know." Many of us believe "If they know I don't know, I will die". Every one of us occupies the largest room in the house and that is the room for improvement. You will not grow until you accept that fact. There is no need to get sick before you get well.
If you could have ANYTHING in the world, what would it be? Is that it, really? Well, you CAN have it. Just go make it happen!
Step into a new possibility that no one thought was possible for you. Being affirmed by others should be a value-add, not what drives you. If you wait for others to affirm you or give you value, life will pass you by. You can choose to believe anything you want, so why not believe in yourself and accept personal responsibility to get what you want?
Every day we crucify ourselves between two thieves: the regrets of yesterday and the fears of tomorrow. This is your NOW! Pour your heart, body and soul into this present moment. There is nothing wrong, nothing needs to be fixed and there is nothing broken. Whatever you want is available Right Now. The choice that you make now will either begin a journey toward what you want or it will not.
Some people allow failures to thwart their dreams. If you have failed, so what? I have some good news for you. You Get To Do It Again! Change your approach to get a different result and go for it again. Failure is not falling down, it is staying down.
You may fail many times on your life's journey; however, you are not a failure until you begin blaming others. Have the courage to accept personal responsibility for the choices that create your reality.
I know it is early; however, I have a raised beverage toasting your successful day. So what will we celebrate before we get started this morning? I have an idea; how about we celebrate that no matter what happens today, you will remain positive and accept personal responsibility for the outcome. Yay, I am drinking to that. Cheers!
If you are continuously having to motivate your team regarding your outcome and the benefits of that outcome, you either do not have a clear outcome or you have not effectively communicated the outcome to them. A continuous need to motivate your team is a result of not effectively empowering, motivating and inspiring them regarding your outcome because an outcome focused team is self-motivated.
You will always be able to rise above the image that others have of you; however, you will never rise above the image you have of yourself. It is important to be aware that the image you have of yourself is being projected by the conversation you are having with yourself. When you change that conversation, you will change how you see yourself. So check the conversation. You are worth it.
If you really want to live a purposeful life, make iFOTO your motto. iFOTO means, “I Focus on the Outcome”. The only way to know if the choices you are making every day are purposeful is by being aware of what is driving those choices. If the choices are being driven by anything other than your outcome, it is time to reevaluate those choices. Make life happen because of you.
Whether you are having a good day or a bad day is not determined by what is happening in your world. A good day or a bad day is determined by your assessment of what is happening. You are a prophet. Check your conversation.
