I was asked the other day how I can get someone to their full potential. Great question, right? Well, the truth of the matter is no one can drive or push someone to their full potential. That's up to them. For example: Let's just say that your guardian angel came down from the heavens for a little chat about your potential. She told you in great detail what you were capable of doing and what your true potential was. It absolutely blew you away to the point that you doubted what she was saying. You looked at her and said, 'are you sure'? She replied, YES!! Then she said, "What Are You Going To Do About It?"
You see, even if you had the great fortune of having a guardian angel come down from heaven and tell you how much better you could be, you still have to do the work!! There are no shortcuts in life! You have to dream big, stay committed to that dream, believe that it's possible and then go execute the plan. In other words, do the work!! Regardless of your job, you have to love it. You also have to grow and want more each and every day.
You Can Do It!! Reach for the top and go after your full potential. If you get there, give me a call and we can talk.
Have a Spectacular and Grateful Day!!
We have covered six of the top eight parts of someone's life. You may want them in a different order, but this is how I see it:
Health, Love, Family, Work, Friendship, Learning and now Wealth.
For most of us, we see wealth as having a whole ton of money with lots of freedom to do anything we want. To others, wealth means a lot of headaches and too much to worry about. Well, that may be true if that's how you see it. I would like you to look at wealth or being wealthy like this; it's a state of mind and not the state of your bank balance or assets. So, focus on becoming wealthy, not rich.
Aim to wake up every morning and do the simple things like eating well, exercising, spending quality time with your family, learning, meditating, preparing for a great day at work or being grateful. Being wealthy, to me, is living all eight parts of your life to their fullest. We will all have an abundant life if we have our Health, Love, Family, Work, Friendship and Learning. Living a complete and happy life is your wealth. But, here is the magic, when you invest in yourself you start to attract good things and good people to you. These often come with great opportunities to work and invest in new ideas that fire you up to make more money. It all works together to have the life you desire.
So, build your wealth by starting on you and then master all areas of your life to fulfill all of your dreams.
Below is a video from my favorite athlete. Tom Brady is a class act guy. He lives every area of these eight parts of life and is very wealthy. I had the privilege to meet him last year and he is everything this video shows him to be. Watch now and be inspired for the rest of your day!!
As we continue through the eight steps to a better life, we will focus on learning. For us to have a better life it must include building your mind and improving through learning. The world isn't going to get any easier, so we must get better! My main reason for writing these emails and to search each and every day for the right video, is for you. If I can change just one life, I'll have won!! But, I won't stop there. I want everyone to see what their true potential is and go for it. For you to do that you will have to work on it. No, it will not be easy, but it will be worth it for you. Do the work and prepare for greatness through change.
The video below is about Determination! You will have to have a lot of Determination to improve, learn, grow and to live out your purpose in life. No one really wants to live in mediocrity, they just don't want to put in the work to improve. I'm telling you straight out, do the work and become the person you have always dreamed you could become. Start today!! Don't wait another minute or procrastinate on this opportunity to change your life.
One of the eight parts of a complete life is Friendship. Within the last 10 years I have surrounded myself with spectacular people that I now call my friends and my Chosen Family. I love them all! We are all like minded people that share the same interests and we like to have fun, learn and grow together. My Chosen Family also helps each other as we encourage them to be their best. We celebrate the Victories in their lives with no Judgement or Jealousy. We are Family and we feed off of each other to be our best.
Tony Robbins coined the phrase, "Proximity Is Power". What he means by that is we become the people we hang around with. If you want to live a clean lifestyle, you have to hang out with people that eat well, don't smoke and stay away from alcohol. If you want to become more successful, you hang out with people that are smarter than you and love success. If you love to hunt and fish, you hang out with hunters and fishermen. If you love to do charity work and help others, you'll hang out with the same like minded people. I think you get the drift. But what happens if you want to grow and the friends around you get jealous and try to bring you back to their level? This is where you have to be disciplined and find some new friends. You can never be higher or better than the best friend you have.
An essential part of every human is friendship. We thrive for connection. All I'm saying is pick your friends wisely. The old saying goes, "You can't pick your family but you can pick your friends." If you want to grow and be the best that you can be, chose the friends that will encourage you to be your best!!!
Enjoy the video below. The video talks about the importance of friendship.
I have always thought of work as a gift. I also compare the way we live today to just a hundred years ago. We truly are blessed to live in these times. We can work as much as we want and for that work we are able to shop for anything we desire. Right down to never leaving our house. A hundred years ago, it was survival at its best. 96% of Americans were self reliant and had to work every day to put food on the table.
So why is it that so many don't like their jobs? I believe it's all about choosing to love your work. Regardless of what you do, you have to have a purpose. Our company's purpose is "Improving the quality of people's lives by making amazing rooms together." Each of our employees can also have a purpose to serve our clients through their own purpose. Each purpose aligns with the another. From sales, delivery, customer care, prep, cleaning, management etc. We all work towards one goal of serving our clients and living our why.
If you learn to love your job and focus on the difference that our products or services make on society you will grow and flourish. We also have to have empathy for our clients. Value the privilege to serve them from the heart and never take them for granted. My father taught me long ago to see it through the eyes of the client and how hard they have to work to save the money to buy our products.
Work is a gift and we must be grateful for the opportunity. If you take this approach to work, the sky is the limit. Master your job and do the best you can by learning and evolving. Ask yourself "Can I do this job better?", "What can I do to provide more value?". Jim Rohn always said, "You don't get paid for your time you get paid for your value." The more value you put on the table, the higher your pay. There is no limit to your potential. See yourself growing and prospering in your career.
Have a Spectacular and Grateful Day!!
