Why I Got Excited When No One Showed Up To My Gary Vee Event

No one showed up to a Meetup I was hosting.  Ironically the lessons in entrepreneurship that I was going to share that I had learned and heard from others including Gary Vaynerchuk were applicable even more so to me after this happened…

That’s why I got excited because I know that this experience is going to be an inspiring story for someone else one day…

Stack the odds of success…

Life is about taking action towards your goals, reflecting on what actions are bringing about positive results, reiterating your processes and stacking the odds in your favour…

What’s Your Legacy?

Are you going to work for someone else for your whole life, or are you going to leave a legacy?

 

Failing to plan is planning to fail

You’ve heard it before…. “failing to plan is planning to fail”.

So you may have got some new years resolutions already committed, but have you got an actual plan for how you will achieve them?  Make sure you sit down and really think about what you want this year, the next few years and into the future.  If you don’t have a plan, you will just become part of someone else’s plan.  And who wants to be part of someone else’s plan if you can create your own????

Getting Unstuck With Focus

After getting stuck myself with some analysis paralysis, I’ve been able to refocus my energy and my thoughts and get back to my goal of sharing my insights and helping people get unstuck.

Shout out if you want some help getting unstuck.

Progress not perfection

“There are many ways of going forward, but only one way of standing still.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt

In our journey to freedom engineering, I want to remind you that standing still is not okay, but you don’t have to make things perfect…

Aim for progress, not perfection….

 

Reduce Drag For Success

Like a motor car or a sprinter that is looking to reduce drag to help move fast with efficiency and less resistance, we can all look at ways to reduce drag in our lives.

When the light changes to green, they’ll all change

Ever looked ahead at all the red lights in a row… Then yours goes green and you move forward to all the other ones turning green in sync so you don’t have to stop at every intersection…

On your life journey, there will be red lights all the time, and times you have to give way, watch out for the crazy drivers and people going the same way as you…. but your journey is unique and when the light goes green and you move forward with confidence, the lights will change in your favour…

I’m feeling lucky on my birthday to have the opportunity to go through a few green lights…

Don’t miss the chance to set a great foundation

Kudos to Jeremy Todd of The Positive Side podcast (check it out on itunes) who inspired me to make sure I never miss a Monday Morning Workout!! What great advice… what an opportunity to start the day right, the week right and get you moving in the right direction.

So true throughout our success journey.  Taking every opportunity to set a great foundation for success is key to building momentum and engineering more freedom!

 

Good Preparation Is Better Than Good Paint

Success and results are often more about the preparation rather than the tools. What are you doing to prepare you day and your best life?
