Having worked in the construction industry in the past, I understand the value of alliances and business cooperation. Even though I worked as a sub-contractor to the main developing contractor as an electrician, it’s vital to coordinate and program the work together as a team. Of course, the main contractor sets out the schedule, but communication is paramount to keep everything running smoothly with a successful outcome.
If one thing goes “out of kilter” it can create real problems for the project and is generally unnecessary in my experience. It may be as crazy as one “ego” against another, which is against all the principles which I was encouraged to work in. Business cooperation and building alliances between trade company representatives who work on any project, from the smallest to the largest, is key. “Getting on” with your work mates, no matter what trade they are in, is the obvious way forward for anyone. The value to the customer also improves because of the way the job has come together and completed efficiently.
This proves Continue reading
Successful sales and effective marketing needs persistence, continuous improvement and an expectation there will be a positive outcome. If you don’t believe in your success and approach every aspect of marketing with enthusiasm, creativity and a positive attitude, it would be like taking part in a yacht race with no wind to help you along. This means you have no momentum or direction, leaving your competition free to overtake you.
Attitude has a deceptive way of infiltrating everything we do. It can take us to great heights or drag us down to the depths of failure. It can energize us to do everything at the right time, or it can affect our motivation and cause us to sabotage all of the great plans we have made.
The truth is that we either own Continue reading
Many 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
Be careful what you believe, because it’s odds on that’s what you will experience. Your inner belief system is a mechanism that is yours and yours alone. It’s powered by your innermost principles, your desire and controlled by your thoughts and actions. In fact, you could say that your success is measured by the strength of your belief.
What do you desire? Many people don’t have a clue what they want. They seem to know what they don’t want, so logically it shouldn’t be too hard to work out. It’s time to evaluate your goals and determine the goals you truly Continue reading
They 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
Among the various roads we follow, we could find a road that leads to a life of single blessedness, marriage, and religious vocation. Then there is a road that leads to fame and fortune on one hand, or isolation and poverty on the other. Moreover, there are Continue reading
Welcome to part 2 of 4 in this series of discovering your success road. If you have not yet seen part one, please take some time to read it, because it will help you to move forward with the steps in part 2.
When on the sometimes slippery road on your success journey, you need to take some time for self-analysis. This is a very important part in the event of building up that success journey. Before we actually get into Continue reading
Many of us are striving to have success in our lives and yet it seems futile to some to even think it’s possible to change your life for the better. You struggle from day to day to make a living and yet you are “stuck” where you are.
This is true for very many of us, but does it have to be this way?
I don’t think so, despite me having had many of the same feelings as a lot of you that I am constantly working for no real reward. Then I came to realize something, Continue reading
It’s just a couple of days since the passing of Dr Wayne Dyer and my thoughts have been around change in myself and readdressing my goals and making those changes. Personal development and growth is always something that “comes from within”. Work on yourself from the inside out because that is where the fundamental changes need to take place.
It’s no good trying to change things when Continue reading
You wonder just how to attract what you want into your life and you hear people telling you about “attracting” all sorts of things to you by thinking positive. The thing is you doubt that you can think positive in any way. Because of this doubt, it’s inevitable that you think negatively, and this in turn shows up as more negativity and nothing seems to get better. Continue reading
