I don’t like uniformity at all, I like diversity. I like allowing people to be the best versions of them. I thought the different sizes, shapes, models, and approaches of our agencies was a positive. I thought of it a strength and that the diversification of our distributors was something that added to its beauty. – Matt WinterHear more words of wisdom from Matt Winter during his podcast interview.

Success Thought of the Day – 8/27/18: Move beyond fear

Feel the fear and do it anyway. - Susan Jeffers

The ability to move beyond fear is a powerful attribute.

It has often been said (and I am paraphrasing), it is not the just the destination that we have made it to that defines our success, but the distance from which we have traveled.  I would suggest a friendly modification – – we should also include the barriers and fears that we crossed during that journey as well.

To move beyond fear requires that we make a conscious choice

In order to move beyond fear, we have to make the choice that what stands on the other side far exceeds what stands in front of us.

As we move beyond fear,  we building more ability to do it

As it is with anything we do, practice makes perfect – – which of course speaks to why I am such a horrible golfer, but I digress.  Each time we take another step past our fears, we build more muscle memory.  In other words, it will become more natural.  Almost like a pattern

  1. See and acknowledge it – what is this challenge?
  2. Size it – is it worth overcoming to reach my goal?  Yes continue to step 3
  3. Move past it.

So, now what?

I challenge each of us to look at our “to do” lists – physically or mentally.  Are there any items on that list that continue to get delayed or moved back?  Could any of those items be related to our fear of dealing with them?  If so, pick one and go after it this week.

Go out and move beyond fear!

Have a great day!

Success Thought of the Day – 8/24/18: Taking Chances

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish. - Ovid

We know that without a doubt, we lose 100% of the opportunities we do not go for.  Perhaps better stated by hockey player Wayne Gretzky, “you miss 100% of the shots you do not take.”  So, we must take chances.

What holds us back from taking chances?

The risk of loss perhaps?  That could certainly be one.  As we consider taking a chance on…ourselves, our passion, our vision, our goals, could there be a risk?  Absolutely!  However, consider that the bigger risk is the opportunity loss of not taking the chance and closing the deal on your passion, vision or goal and long-term cumulative effect of that for years to come.

Where do you go from here?

The quote says it, “let your hook be always cast: in the pool where you least expect it.”  Give consideration to both consistently casting your hook and where you are casting it.

Have a great day!
