A Fork in the Road? Either Way, it’s Your Choice to Make

Picture this, on a recent road trip maneuvering through the back roads of East Texas, filled with tall oak and pine trees throughout the drive, coupled with terrible cell phone reception and getting travel directions via text messages as we were driving, we found ourselves facing the image you see below…

fork in the road

That’s right, our journey brought us to a real life Fork in the Road. We all have heard of that proverbial “fork in the road” statement, which is a metaphor based on a literal expression for a deciding moment in life or history, when a major choice of options is required.

We were fortunate enough to be driving during the daylight hours and also to receive our last text message with the correct driving directions right before our cell phone reception went out.

However, this simple drive through the countryside gave us a chuckle as well as something to think about with our own life options and decisions. I want to pose a question to you; how do you handle those “Fork in the Road” moments that occur in your life.

Please leave a comment below or share this post with someone that is facing that “Fork in the Road” on their journey of living life to fulfillment.

Review this Memo Before Leading Your Team

Review this Memo Before Leading Your  Team

lead your team

Working in a team environment inevitably means coming to consensus where complex issues are involved, taking into account the opinions and perspectives of a variety of personalities and backgrounds. Part of effective leadership is helping those you manage move beyond their comfort zones into common ground, a process that can lead to better communication and heightened self-awareness while saving your company time and money. But how do you build a bridge for your team to reach an affirmative “Yes”?

TRY A NEW P.O.V. – Reframing the situation can work wonders, helping someone focus on the positives instead of negatives or opportunities instead of barriers or threats. Even if it doesn’t completely address concerns, breaking out beyond one’s perspective can open the possibilities beyond what’s been considered so far. Try to think like your individual team members and anticipate what will concern them – by addressing those issues up front, you may save a number of headaches down the road.

CELEBRATE DIVERSITY – There’s no one “right” way to communicate or work in business. By understanding and appreciating the various styles and strengths on your team, you’ll be able to foster synergy and collaboration instead of frustration. Simply pay attention to subtle personality cues, taking the time to understand team dynamics and personalities will pay dividends down the road via a fulfilled, cohesive team.

CATCH THE VISION – Help those you manage see the bigger picture, considering threads and patterns in the workplace. By emphasizing active listening and asking the right questions, you can help team players see positive patterns. An increased awareness can also help you watch for potential problems and triggers, allowing you to take the small steps that will turn the tide toward healthy collaborative efforts in the future.
Lead Your Team,

Fly High With the Wind of Resistance

Fly High With the Wind of Resistance

I just thought of the fun we all have when spring time come around and we see all of the kites flying up in the air. It’s especially fun to see the young kids trying to run and get the kite to fly however soon after it comes crashing back down to the ground.

kites

Reminds me of how we all want to do well in life, fly high in business, enjoy the fruits of our labor and we must remember that this wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the winds of resistance that life sometimes bring to us on this journey. There will be obstacles, pitfalls, mountains and other adversities that will happen and you have to keep in mind, just like flying that kite very high in the sky, if we don’t face any winds of resistance to push us upward higher and higher, then we will not fly high and far in life.

So just like those kids that are getting their kites together for a time of flying high, you should be preparing yourself to face the winds of adversity in order to fly high and reach your destiny;
FLY HIGH my friend!

Simple Ways to Avoid the Holiday Trap

Simple Ways to Avoid the Holiday Trap

So the Holidays are upon us, Christmas, Hanukkah, Quanza and New Year’s Day and probably several others I’m forgetting.

Would you like to know how to avoid the #1 trap that most people find themselves in this time of the year?  No, I’m not talking about relatives making that unexpected stop to pay a visit.
holiday trap 1

I’m talking about money.

I’m talking about the debt that most people get into in the month of December and then spend the next year and maybe more trying to pay it off. It all starts with good intentions. It’s natural for all of us to want to provide more for our families and loved ones this time of the year. Gifts, vacations and all the other stuff we think we need to do this time of the year… it’s easy to find yourself spending more than you have.

When this happens you just do what most people do right?

CHARGE IT ON THE CREDIT CARD!

Unfortunately that is what most people do and it really is a vicious cycle.

So how do you break out of this message and avoid the Holiday Trap all together?
Below are some tips that I recommend… after the 3 tips I have something very important to share.

Avoiding the Holiday Trap

1. Live within your means
So many of us spend more than we have or can afford. For many people their “means” are not that much. Does it seem sometimes that you are just barely making it? You probably would not be surprised that most everyone walking around us are doing the same…living paycheck to paycheck and just getting by.

Note: If you don’t have it… you don’t have it.  Don’t spend money you don’t have.

2. Budget wisely
Plan for this time of the year wisely. Know how much you make and where all your money is going to. Sounds simple enough right? Then why don’t most people do this? Because it’s hard…especially when things are tight.

One thing I’ve found though is that no matter how much you make, if you don’t keep a budget the money always runs out. Keeping a good budget will help you plan for gifts, vacations and holiday plans so you don’t have to get out of debt.

3. Learn to say no. 
If you don’t have the money, learn to say no. This can be one of the hardest things for people to do as you can tell by the number personal bankruptcies that happen each and every day. Learning to say no so is really important when funds are tight.

Now I’d like to get real with you here.

The above tips I just gave are very sound advice but I’d like to switch gears now and get out of “Scarcity Mode”…because that is exactly what the 3 tips I just gave you are.  They assume that you are just barely getting by for the most part.

Who wants that!

One of my mentors shared this experience with me recently…

He found himself in the same situation that most people do… living paycheck to paycheck and just getting by. He learned to budget and got his finances down to the penny and soon realized he had two choices.

1. He could continue like this, living paycheck to paycheck and get really good at keeping a budget.

2. He could make more money.

He chose the second. He knew that his job wasn’t getting him anywhere. The 2 to 3% raise a year just wasn’t enough to get him anywhere. He was either going to have to find a higher paying  job or take matters into his own hands and start his own home-based business.

He decided to start his own Internet home business with the goal of making  and extra $50 a day.  You see $50 a day would be enough to pay his monthly house payment. He knew that if he hit this goal it would be a huge relief…

So with a lot of determination, some guidance, a little faith and hard work he was able to get to the $50 a day in a fairly short amount of time. Then something interesting happened…

Pretty soon he found that he was making $100 a day and then $300 a day and not too long after $500 a day! This was something he had dreamed about  for many years and it was now actually happening. $500 days turned into $1,000 days and yes he had many days that were 2K, 5K and yes even 10K days!

I know it’s kind of hard to believe when you are stuck in the Rat Race and feel you have no options but the reality is if you really want to break out of the “Trap”, you really need to make more money

So that’s how you get out of the Holiday Trap and many other traps in your life.

Why live a life of scarcity when you can live a life of abundance? Why settle for just getting by? We all deserve more than this and if you would like to know more about my mentor’s story and what I’m doing to get out of that Holiday Trap!

What Do Your Calendar Look Like?

What Do Your Calendar Look Like?

Are you struggling in your home business? Are you spinning your wheals and getting nowhere? Are you wondering why others around you are having success and you are not?

You may be surprised to the solution to this problem…it’s something you hopefully look at each and every day, right in front of you.
It may be in a digital or paper format however you must take control of it and not let time go by.

your calendar

It is Your Calendar!

Take a look at your calendar, is it full of income producing activities? What about product training, marketing events or personal development activities? Or do you have a blank calendar?

Having personal items on your calendar is nice to put down if you need to be reminded of these type of things however simply put, the people that are having success are the ones that are blocking or filling their time blocks with income producing and business building activities.

It is not rocket science. They have visualize the way they want their week and month to go and organize their work to where they are getting the most productive and profitable things on their schedule and completed. Having a calendar, day-timer or to do list, is a great way to keep the funnel of activity moving along the process, so that you know where you are and when and what you can add to your schedule.

There is an old saying, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person.” If someone were to look at your calendar and see what’s on it, this is a great indicator to see if you are organize and have things to do and if your actions and results are reflecting your success.

The next tine you are struggling in your business, look at your calendar! If you have any thoughts, ideas or comments you want to share, please do so below.
Get Busy, Get Productive!

Make it HAPPEN!!!
