“Be a class act”

Be a class act by offering to help even when it is not needed, it shows the amount of class you have. Anyone can just stand around and watch others struggle or work. And, for the most part there are people that don’t ask for or even require your help/assistance. But it’s up to you to show how much of a class act you are by at least offering anyway.

“Inspiration and motivation comes from many places”

Have you ever been inspired or motivated by something simple?  I have been many times.  Sometimes just the smallest thing can set things into action that lead to other things that are positive, and all you need is just a little inspiration and/or motivation.

Even when things are negative around you it is still possible to be positively inspired or motivated.  “From our deepest and darkest despair, comes our greatest achievement.” 

Sometimes when we find ourselves at the bottom of the pit it is possible from that bottom to achieve our greatest glory.  When we are faced with a mountain to overcome, it is easy to just put our head down and quit.  But when your back is against the wall and you feel the weight of the world is on your shoulders, you can achieve your greatest success with just a little inspiration and motivation.

Being faced with adversity or an overwhelming obstacle can be enough to ignite a spark in you that gets your adrenaline flowing to pick yourself up, and get after it to climb that mountain.

Join the conversation.  What inspires and motivates you when faced with adversity?

“You should aspire to get better all the time”

If you want to make a big impact on something you should start small and work you way up by getting better all the time.

Taking small steps along the way will allow for you to make huge strides over time.  As long as you focus with the end result in mind and make improvements all the time you can build future success in small doses.

The thing to keep in mind is that you are not going to immediately get the results you want.  If you want to make a difference you have to work at it.  This makes discipline and the determination to go the distance regardless of circumstances, situation, or obstacles along the way paramount to your success. 

As you are on your journey make small, realistic goals and as you achieve them, make sure you reward yourself.  But, whatever you do don’t quit, give up, or slack off because of progress.  You should remain vigilant and ready at all times.

If you do this, you will soon find that you are better off than you were before by making continuous, physical, conscious efforts that will lead to the results you set out to achieve.

“Thinking negatively cannot change what has already happened.” 

How often have you made a mistake and spent the entire day wallowing in your own guilty self pity? When you do this you are draining yourself of valuable time and energy that could be spent on something you have positive influence over instead of something that has already come and gone. 

By getting upset, you will not accomplish anything anyway, so don’t get bent out of shape over something that has already come and gone. When you do make a mistake it is good to learn from it so that it does not happen again. When you get upset over something that you have no affect on after the fact you waste time and energy over things that are no longer important. 

So, instead of beating yourself up over something you no longer have influence over, learn from your mistake, be aware that it has the potential of happening again if you are not vigilant, and move on to the things you can have a positive influence over.

“APPLY and ADAPT so that you can have control over your destiny”

How often have you heard people complain about their job, friends, family, co-workers, employees, money, traffic, and other people or situations. I am here to tell you that you have control over your destiny if you APPLY and ADAPT.

APPLY your knowledge and experience to situations you have control over so that you can influence and add value others. Be open minded and flexible in order to ADAPT to the situations in which you have no control.

Through positive influene you can make a difference not only your life, but in the lives of others. My challenge to you is APPLY and ADAPT where you can to control a destiny.

POTENTIAL – Leaders look for what something/someone can become, instead of what something/someone is.

We all have POTENTIAL to be greater than we are.  Through dedication, discipline, and hard work we can reach our POTENTIAL if we are willing to sacrifice what it takes to reach it. 

Sadly, most people find a “comfort zone” and never reach their full POTENTIAL.  If we are to grow and develop, we must do things outside of our “comfort zone”. 

Join the conversation.  What are you doing to reach your POTENTIAL or helping someone else reach theirs?

You have to learn to pick and choose your battles. But what if everything is a battle?  I can assure you that everything is not a battle.  Not everything is worth arguing over.  Not everything is worth your time and more importantly your energy and health.  If we let every little thing get to us and we feel we need to defend our ground, our lives would be miserable all the time and there would never be any rest for the weary.  Below are some things you should consider when picking your battle.

  1. Is the battle worth your time, effort, and energy?
  2. Can you win the battle or is it a never ending escapade?
  3. Do you have a solution to make things better, or are you just arguing for argument sake?
  4. Is there a common ground that everyone can agree upon?
  5. Does the battle even matter to the “big picture” of things?
  6. Will this battle cause resentment and undue hardship later affecting a professional or personal relationship?
  7. Will this battle have a profound impact on the lives of others?

These are just a few.  Join the conversation and let me know of any other considerations you can think of that might help you pick your next battle or just forget about it.
