Young Men – Have Respect for Yourself

Happy New Year my friends;
I wanted to start this 2011 year off giving some positive motivation to our young people, particularly our young men. This day and age many of our young men are going through an identity crisis and are just not happy with themselves, with those around them and those leading them. Rev. Al Riggins shed some light as to what young people need to do and that is to have respect for yourself first and foremost in order to start having a better community and family life. Even though our discussion was geared to the younger people, we as adults can take and apply this same information for ourselves because after all the youth is watching us a role models. Enjoy and please share with me your “2 cents” and have a great day!

Believe, Decide, then Do It!

Do you have an idea, a job or task that you believe in? Have you gotten fed up with the status quo and just plain tired of being sick and tired? If you were in the room with 10 people including yourself and the other 9 stated their doubts and even went so far to say that you are foolish to try your hand with that endeavor. Would your belief sink and you cower to their statements or would you allow their doubts to fuel your belief even more? In this post and video, please take some time to get your own understanding of what the title means to you and where you are in your belief and decision making about your life’s plan.

With your idea or opportunity, you may already have the tools, training and business plans in place, all you need to do now is make the decision and apply them; Go to Work! A brief story of 5 frogs sitting on a log over a pond. When 4 of the 5 frogs decided to jump into the pond, how many frogs are still sitting on the log? If you said there are 5 frogs sitting on the log, you are correct! Just because you decide to do something doesn’t mean that you actually did it. Enjoy this video with Duane Cruickshank, which may cause you to laugh a little, however I want it to get you to believe more, make a decision and go Make it HAPPEN!!!

Survival – Motivation for Success!

SURVIVAL – One definition of survival states to continue longer than an adversary to attain life or victory.  This entertaining video regarding The Essence of Survival was cut early one morning doing what I love to do, which is working out, and I was inspired to develop the content from a poster (author unknown) that I have in my office. Whatever endeavor you are working on, take this survival mentality as motivation for success and apply it to your endeavors. Now enough of my writing, enjoy the video and share your comments, thoughts and encouragements with me. 

Let’s GO!

Are You an Entrepreneur? Get Your Mind Ready!

Have you heard of these statements? “It cost to be the Boss or A 40 hour workweek is a vacation to an entrepreneur or a business owner.” These sayings can make working at a job or working for someone else seem tame compared to working as a business owner or entrepreneur. Truth be told some days as an entrepreneur can really be challenging and make you wish for those days of putting work down at 5pm and starting back over at 9am. When you made the decision to step out on faith to pursue your passion, you immediately became the leader you once complained about. The difference now is that you have the power to do something about your complaints; now the buck stops with you!

However no matter how challenging it gets, you cannot put a price tag on the value of work that an entrepreneur is pursuing especially a work of and with purpose. It all starts with your mindset and energy. That energy encompasses the physical, mental as well as the spiritual to make sure you are bringing all that you have to the table because this endeavor will take all that you have to give and more.  Your mind is constantly on your ideas, solutions to challenges and other opportunities that even when you are on vacation, you are always seeking that needle in the haystack opportunity to capitalize on, be it monetarily or personal development.

Your environment will play a huge part in your mental scope of how productive you can be on a daily basis. It is amazing how one word of encouragement from a family member can motivate you to accomplish a task and build momentum for more challenges. So make sure there is positive communication flowing from those around you and if this is not the case, find a different environment or get new friends altogether because your destiny is at stake. I hope this blog empowers you into taking action to give yourself a chance and remember; “If it’s meant to be, then it’s up to me!

Make it HAPPEN!!!  

Insurance Policy Tips!

I am glad that all of you have your insurance policies in place. Grab a seat and get your pencil and pad in front of you because I have been coming across some interesting tidbits working with clients and prospects that I want to share regarding your insurance policies. These tips are going to follow what we learned in school a few years ago; the what, when, where, why and how questioning method.

Do you know what type of insurance policies you have in force? Do you know when you purchased your policies and if they are expiring or has any cash value? Do you know where your policies are located ie, safe deposit box, file cabinet or under the mattress? Do you understand why you purchase those particular policies? Here is a big one; do you know how much coverage you have in place and if this coverage amount is enough?

As we get older, our family situations change and the policies you purchased some time ago may or may not be in your best interest to keep. This is a call to action for you to have a policy review with your insurance agent or give me a call or email. I work with many people on structuring their base financial needs on a solid foundation. Check out www.theneedforcoverage.com for insurance information and/or go to our contact page to have us contact you.

Sincerely,

Celebrating Life’s Moments!

How do you celebrate life’s moments? Are you going out to eat, hanging with friends or reading a good book to enjoy those moments? Everyday our lives are made up with many moments for celebrations however we may get caught up in looking for those big moments and overlooking the smaller ones. For you that is on the road to higher achievements in life, take time to really smell the roses, not just put the rose to your nose and recall what a rose smell like. Take the time to call on others that has shared a positive experience with you, it never fails, they may bring up an experience or two that you completely forgot about to give your more reason to laugh and enjoy. These are the moments where our experiences are worth celebrating! I challenge each and everyone to write down what you are giving to life and how you enjoy it. Yes we can take up much time writing or talking about the many issues and challenges going on around us and spend little time on the positive items and things worth celebrating. Just remember the next time you celebrate to invite me for reminding you!

Make today your best day!
