What To Do When You Lose Your Focus.

It's easy to lose focusWith all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!

I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading

Why Your Life Journey Matters.

building your journey through life and following the pathEvery one of us has our own life journey. It’s a personal thing that often has too many people trying to influence. The outside influence is all around us. Why is it that all we hear about is bad news? Bad news accounts for a miniscule part of the news as a whole, but all we seem to hear about is murder, bombings, terrorism and the like. Why is that? I think it’s to drive fear into all of us so we comply with the control that is “invisible” all around us. We never really know the power of what we can achieve until we let go of this and set out our own life path.

The control can be as simple as people setting limits on us. Education systems in the past (and maybe even now in some circumstances) limited the expectations of certain pupils. What kind of message does that send out? It promotes Continue reading

Take Action Because Action Speaks Louder Than Words

action speaks louder than wordsMany of us have been in a situation where you have a good idea what must be done, but can’t do it. You know it’s the right thing to do, but you can’t move. We all know that Action speaks louder than words, so why do we let ourselves get stuck?

Horrible feeling and position to be in – STUCK!!

You keep going over and over things in your head, but even then don’t do anything about it. You have the belief that everything will work out. Somehow life will just magically work it out for you. Then, whatever the Continue reading

Sometimes A Solution Needs A Little Creative Thinking

we all need to think creatively sometimesSometimes we need a little creative thinking to come up with solutions to problems. If you’re like me, you will always work on the premise that there is not a problem, but there is a solution. The thought process of knowing there is always a solution triggers that creative thinking to be able to come up with that seemingly elusive solution.

How many times have you found yourself thinking there will be no other solution to a problem? You even think that problem leads to a dead end! How many times have you been stuck and believe the problem in front of you is Continue reading

Don’t Argue: Ask Questions

don't argue, ask questions insteadThey say “It takes two to tango”. Well, it also takes at least two to argue. It’s not possible to have an argument with someone if there is no reaction. My advice is don’t argue. If you need to find solutions to create a win/win outcome, then arguing isn’t going to serve you. The best way to reach a reasonable and acceptable outcome is to ask questions.

In coaching it’s normal to encourage people to ask questions so the other person can hear the potential solution in their own words. It’s said that coaches don’t ask questions to hear the answer themselves, but Continue reading

Thinking of where he was when he came up with the Theory of Relativity, this must Continue reading

How To Overcome Rejection.

It doesn’t really matter what business you’re in, whether it’s sales or a business such as network marketing where you need to recruit people, many of us have to face up to and deal with how to overcome rejection. Rejection, or what appears to be rejection, is something we have to cope with and getting past the “no” is the difficult part for many people. Why? Because they believe it’s somehow THEM that are the problem, when it’s the person they speak to just saying the product, service or opportunity is not for them at the time of asking.

Which Cycle Of Life Do You Occupy?

cycle of lifeAs adults we tend to live in what may be called a cycle of life. These can be based on memories and various points of our life where these memories derive from. This can cause us to have either a negative or a positive cycle that we continuously draw on in our subconscious mind. This can have a great influence on how we live our lives and how we deal with these life experiences over time. Some deal with them very well and others not so well. Question is, which cycle of life do you occupy? Continue reading
