How Successful Do You Want to Be?

Published on 01 February 2018 in Blog

I once saw a comic strip of Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson that totally described the way I used to meet deadlines:

While waiting until the last minute can be effective motivation, it is far more comfortable (and profitable!) to plan your projects so that you can meet deadlines without killing yourself in the process.
.
That does not, however, mean you should only set small, comfortable targets.
.
I used to limit my own success with negative affirmations like, “I can’t afford that” or “I wish I could have my own plane” (the unstated assumption being that I’d never have my own plane).
.
But then I then read Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki in which he says that when growing up, his father would say things like, “We can’t afford that,” while his friend’s father would say things like, “How can we afford that?”
.
I stopped thinking I couldn’t have or be those things, and starting asking myself how can I have or be those things? I started to set higher goals, started researching how others did what I wanted to do, and started planning on how I could do the same.
.
You are the sole factor that determines whether or not you set and achieve your goals.
.
How successful do you want to be?

What Are You Waiting For?

Last year I had set aside a week to vacation with an old friend from Europe, and during our trip he shared that he was dying of a rare but terminal disease. I enjoyed the time we spent together and managed to hold it together for most of our visit, but I experienced deep, sobbing grief after we parted. (He had already come to terms with his mortality; I had not.)

During the trip he told me a story that I want to share with you now:

Stop. Breathe. Think.

For years I wanted to learn to scuba dive, and I finally decided to take a class.

Part of dive training includes drilling basic skills such as how to clear your mask of water, how to share your air supply if a buddy runs out of his, etc.

Anytime we did a drill where I didn’t feel 100% confident in my abilities, the instructor said, “Do it again!” And I did, again and again, until I knew I had the specific skill we were practicing down cold.

My instructor also told me over and over: “Any time anything goes wrong, Stop. Breathe. Think. Then act.” Read more »

Overcoming Fear

Many of you know I love scuba diving, skydiving, flying powered hang-gliders, etc.

It’s not that I love adrenaline; it’s that I love freedom.

Both scuba diving and flying offer something you just can’t get on land: the ability to float, to soar, to move in any direction at will.

Jacques Cousteau describes this beautifully:

“From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.

Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction—up, down, sideways—by merely flipping his hand. Under water, man becomes an archangel.”

Overcoming Inertia

Inertia: A body at rest tends to stay at rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion.

I awoke today at o-dark-hundred to an achingly cold, rainy morning. I hit the snooze bar and curled back under my perfectly warm down comforter, and listened to the sound of the rain on my bedroom windows.

“I really should get up,” I kept thinking. Today was a gym day and that cheesecake I had last night with dinner wasn’t going work itself off. “But I don’t want to,” said the voice in my head that likes sleeping in on a cold rainy morning.

After a few self indulgent more minutes the voice in my head changed from Sleepy Jack to Carrie-Anne Moss’ character in The Matrix saying, “Get up, Trinity. Get UP!”

Well, ok, FINE. So I got up, made some coffee, and headed to the gym.

Contingency plan, yes. Worry, no.

This is a page from the book The Wealthy Spirit by Chellie Campbell, reposted with permission:


Worry

“Most people spend their lives running away from something that isn’t after them.”—Unknown

Whenever we were upset about the possibility of something bad happening, before it actually happened, Mom would smile and say, “Don’t borrow trouble. That hasn’t happened yet. If it does, we’ll figure out what to do then. Worrying about it today isn’t going to help.”

The Golden Rule of Social Media

See the The Golden Rule of Social Media by DK of MediaSnackers.

This is SO true! I think most people forget that social media is there to assist COMMUNICATION. Without something to communicate, something directed from YOU to OTHERS (be it one person or thousands), then it’s not communication–it’s noise.

Once the signal-to-noise ratio falls below a certain threshold, I stop following people. And so do customers (and potential customers).

Have something to say. Then say it to ME, not the air…!
