There is a lot of “stuff” going on in the world this summer. If you took all that “stuff” seriously you would become anxious and agitated – and many people are. I have come to learn that it is important on a regular basis to take stock of what is going on in your personal life and in your business life. What’s working and what’s not – and making changes. Are you on pace to hit your sales goals – if so; keep pushing forward. If not; make the appropriate adjustments. Do you have the right attitude about your life. My experience is that it is really easy to get cynical and angry with “things”. We all own our attitudes and how we manage each day and our activities. Make sure you take time to breathe and put the right focus on your day ahead.
Who are the people that are sucking the life energy out of you everyday? Where are you getting your inspiration and motivation from? (Hint: it is not from your smart phone and technology) What are your plans for the day ahead? Manage the “Life sucking individuals” out of your life. Find moments each day to be in “awe”. Take a moment each morning and plan out and prepare for your day ahead.
My brother and a good friend have both become grandfathers recently. It is fun to watch them talk about their grandchild. Both of them light up and get really animated when I ask them about their most recent visit with their grandchild. It is the special moments in life that we value most. A grandchild, a sunset, a great conversation over a meal, a hug, a game of a pick-up sport with a group of friends. Make sure you make time and enjoy those special moments.
If you take stock each morning and realize that we live in a great country, that you have the opportunity to create the success and lifestyle you want and that you are healthy and alive – then you have the ability to go out into the world and make a difference and have a smile on your face.
