Even with a Tough Injury to Recover from, Live Your Life!

Injured, Sick, Depressed but not Dead… Live Your Life! Just a morning Praise report of being off of crutches for over a week now and thanking GOD every minute for it. I enjoy it when people asked me about my leg and how I am able to keep moving and my short and truthful answer is, it’s by GOD’s Grace!

As far as recovery and therapy, trust me, it’s becoming a full time job,lol. In just a few hours we will be back at it again with all of the painful stretching, ice, rest, lifting… ohh I’m hurting and getting tired just writing this, however through it all, there are some powerful things that will come from my injury, your sickness, depression or whatever ails you, if you just trust GOD, get up and let your light shine!

Do I believe that I will have a complete recovery and get back to working out, walking fast, etc… Yes and Yes!! I write all of this to state that, situations will never be perfect and as long as the Good Lord gives us breath for another day, go make the most of it. Take good care of your temple, find your purpose and live the life, Your Life!

Woo Hoo!!! No Crutches Needed! Week 8

No More Crutches For Me!

 photo no more crutches_zpsibjalye5.jpg

WOO HOOO!!!!!!!

I am feeling excited, ecstatic, elated, enthusiastic, etc…!!! Why? Because I am walking without the use of crutches! It’s been 6 1/2 -7 long weeks and I’m telling you my armpits and wrists are thankful that this time in my achilles tendon recovery has come. All in the matter of 2 weeks I went from 2 crutches down to 1 crutch down to using a cane and again I’m getting along without the use of any extra assistance. I went to my first physical therapy session on yesterday and it felt good to stand on my foot without the boot and do all of the exercises that the therapist asked me to do.

 

I am feeling great however I do have to keep a little caution close by because I don’t want to rush anything and cause a re-rupture or something. I only want this injury to happen 1 time and this 1 time is enough. My doctor did bring me back to reality when he was discussing some future timelines for my injury and what to expect. When he stated that I could start light jogging possibly in the next 3-4 months, my eyes lit up however he further stated that I may not be at full speed (former NFL Player where speed was my gift) until another 8 months or so. Wow, 8 months? Oh well, like the younger folks say, “It is what it is!” I will take any progress as it comes and not get too ahead of myself when it comes to running and jumping.

I hope you are doing well on your recovery with this injury or whatever injury or challenging situation that you are faced with. Please keep in mind that no matter what the situation is, your mental game plays a Huge part and by staying positive and having an optimistic view long term is the only way to go. In the meantime, let me get back to my daily living activity called work and I will talk with you soon.
Make it HAPPEN!!!

My Daughter Challenge Me to a Staring Contest; She Don’t Even Know…

staring contest

staring contest

I titled this post, “My Daughter Challenge Me to a Staring Contest; She Don’t Even Know” because if she did, then she may have a better understanding of Why I am hard to beat on our Daddy Daughter staring contests.  She is always challenging me on games and simple stuff and like I told her, “My eyes would have to start bleeding before I let you win.”

What she don’t know is that I remember when she was born 3 months prematurely and while my wife and I was on the outside of the incubator looking in at her, she was inside the incubator fighting for every second of her tender life. As long as we were there in the hospital with her, it was hard to take our eyes off of her because we didn’t want to miss anything that she was doing. Those were some tough days to say the least and now that she is a vibrant, intelligent ten year old, I still find the time to reflect back on those days.

Why  I Win!

So,when we have our staring contest and she thinks it’s a fun game to play, she don’t even know that I’m looking at the little baby that once weighed a “hefty” 1 pound and 7 ounces , fighting for her life in that incubator. We have two different perspectives and and with my Why being a tad more serious than just a game, then it’s simple to see why  it’s hard for her to win during our staring contests. She don’t even know…

Now reflect back on things that means a lot to you and ask yourself; How bad do I want this idea, this business and my dream to be successful? How bad do I want to win? Now develop a stronger reason for you to get started and finish successfully. What is your “Why” for you to win and not give up! Gain a bigger perspective of why you are doing something instead of approaching it with a lackluster or comfortable approach and I can almost guarantee that you will come out more victorious than before.
Is Your Why Big Enough?

From the NFL to New Found Life – Sharing Our Story!

The other day I got a call from one of my friends that played with the Tampa Bay Bucs asking me and several of the guys to come out to fellowship and if we didn’t mind sharing our story and testimony of the game and how good God has been to all of us.

Sharing Our Story

Sharing Our Story

We all had a great time recalling so many memories of both good and challenging times however the best part was relating how through it all God had and still has a plan for us to do work and give Him the Glory.

One of the big highlights for me was before they introduce you to the crowd, they had the Monday Night Football theme song playing and Wow this got your blood flowing. My saving grace was the fact that I am still in a walking boot recovering from my torn achilles tendon however that song will never get old. I am both humbled and honored to be one of the few people that got an opportunity to play Sports on a Professional level.

Sharing Our Story

 

Fast forward to 2015 and it’s great to see guys still in good physical and mental health and allowing God to move in their lives and grow them higher spiritually. I am so grateful to have lived this experience, come out a better man and share the lessons I have learned from those “old” playing days.

Walking on One Crutch for Coffee! Week 7

I Just Need One Crutch to Get My Coffee!

I’m starting to get that edge back just because it’s football season and yes, I am ready for some football!!! Well I digress, I am really starting to get my edge just because now I’m down to walking with one crutch instead of two and ohh what a relief it is.

For the past couple of weeks, grabbing my favorite cup of coffee (tall Americano) at Starbucks before I get engage in a intense 2-3 hour workday, I was finding myself not enjoying my coffee. The coffee still tasted the same however what was getting me down was the fact that I had to sit at a table very close to “fixings” that I put into my coffee just because of the inconvenience of trying to maneuver a hot cup of coffee and hopping on crutches.

I would get the obligatory assistance from a stranger waiting for their drink however it was a tall order to expect them to wait until I doctored my coffee up with all of my favorite fixings and then walk it over to the table for me. Some days I would just ditch the coffee altogether and buy a drink not open and it seems as if the barista made the coffee extra special on those days; that aroma was buzzing all over the place.

Now that’s all over with and Wow I’m glad about it. I can get my drink and go to my favorite spot halfway across the room without spilling it all over the floor and enjoy that Tall Americano like the “old” days. What a difference one crutch make. I am aware of this major milestone and I receive it with a ton of humility and gratefulness, because its funny how much we tend to take for granted many of our small mundane day to day activities such as getting our coffee and walking back to your seat, until we are faced with some sort of injury or setback.

So if you are in the Dallas West Village Starbucks and happen to see a handsome guy walking with one crutch with a Big Smile on his face and he orders a Tall Americano, then say hello and get out of my way because I’m headed to my favorite table about halfway across the room ready to finally enjoy my cup of coffee for the day!
Be STRONG!
Make it HAPPEN!!!

How to Score Your Top Ten Priorities for Better Results!

Score your Top Ten Priorities

Score your Top Ten Priorities

What an eye opening activity for my business and me personally, that have literally awaken me to see that I can, I will and I must do better each day to be successful in achieving my goals. I enjoy reading and finding different ways of challenging myself in growing and becoming a better person as well as a businessman in all of my endeavors and pursuits. I understand that whatever goal is in front of me, I have to deliver consistent results to be successful. Positive results is the name of  the game and how we go about achieving these results is what I will share with you today.

A few weeks ago I came across this challenge that is taking my business to a higher level. This challenge requires me to isolate some key priority items that I have to work and complete in my business in order for the results to be positive as the end result. Farther down in this post I will give you the plan however I want to give you the key to it all, in what I would call the “secret sauce” to determines the winners and losers of the game and that is to keep score of your results.

Yes many times we look at the end result of how much money was made or which goals were accomplished and which goals are still hanging in the balance without ever looking into the process of what made the end result or the score look the way it look. Whether you finish the journey as a winner or loser.

Now how do we keep score

I use this formula and like I alluded to earlier, it is definitely eye opening and I challenge each and everyone of you to add it to your game-plan and see, I mean really see where you are with your priorities, your production on these priorities and how your results will look. You can choose to do the score based on however many days you work during the week. We are entrepreneurs for a reason and we don’t like to conform to a 40 hours a week structure, with the 1 hour lunchbreak and then leave our work at the office over the weekend until we get back on Monday. We like our time freedom and the fact that we determine the price for our services based on the value we put in the hours we work. For this post, let’s look at a 5 day week to keep things simple.

Let’s get started…

1. Write down all of the activities that are Top Priority Items that must get done to move your business toward the goal you set out to achieve.

2. Narrow this list of priorities to a Top Ten list. This Top Ten list is what will determine your day to day workload and it will be the driving force of what it takes to WIN! All of the other work activities you left off of this Top Ten list will either be delegated out to an assistant or may become your things to do after you finish the Top Ten priorities.
(Oh yes, it’s a thinking man’s game and before you go right to implementing this list, you need to dive deep into the determining the items that will actually be considered as the Top Ten Priority items and this can take some time.

3. Now you have everything written down and you are on your way to getting the day started in beast mode and checking items off one by one. You work off of your plan for a few days, checking off priority items on the list, kicking yourself for the items that didn’t get done on a particular day and now a full work week has come to a completion and now it’s time to see our score.

4. At the start of the next week, it’s time to track the previous week and give ourselves a score. For those daily 10 activities if you completed all ten, then your score would be 100% Grade A. If you only completed 6 out of 10 items then you scored 60% and in the schools where I come from, 60% was not a passing grade. You calculate each day’s score and then total the numbers for those 5 days will show you your score and how productive you are when it comes to getting your top priority items completed on a daily basis.

In a perfect world and on a super productive day our goal should be 100% however if you are just getting started with this system, the powers that be, lowered it somewhat for us to strive for a weekly goal of 80-85%. When I first saw this 80-85% as a goal, I was like, what 80%, I can do that because I am Action Jackson and I get my work done on a consistent basis. I’m a Go Getter and I will achieve my goals!

results

My Results!

Well I am sad to report that my first 5 day score results was an anemic 60% and I thought I was getting things done. I looked at that number 60% for awhile and then focused my attention on what got done and what didn’t get done. This really will change the way you look at your business and make you understand why you are accomplishing your goals or not. You will go to your own business school and learn lessons about you and your business that only keeping score will teach you. I noticed that on the first day, I hit all 10 of my Top Ten Priority items and Wow was I feeling great. But as the week kept progressing and other stuff like new ideas, distractions, making adjustments to some old priorities, etc… start crowding my daily to do’s, the attention to priorities started getting away from me. All it takes is to complete 3 to 4 priority items and leave the other 6 or 7 undone and you will see that it doesn’t take long for your score to drop because again this is done on a daily basis and there is no time to waste.

To keep myself as well as you encourage and inspired to be more successful in your business I challenge you to get started with this scoring challenge right today. Be completely honest with yourself because after all, this is your business, your goals and ultimately your success that you are tracking and you are not doing me or most importantly yourself any favors by fudging the numbers and whether or not you completed your daily priority items. Please share your comments after week 1, I would love to know your score and also how this will ultimately assist you on your way to a more successful last few months of 2015.
