5 things to do to start your day!

Here are 5 things that you can do to get your day super-charged. Whether we are in business for ourselves through a “Home Based Business” or working the corporate grind.  This is an effective and proven way to supercharge your activity and have that balance that we are all seeking.

1. Feed your mind and Focus – For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you

–   The mind is a powerful tool.  When we are constantly surrounded by negative material we have a strong tendency to not just tune in, but act with negative impacts.  Know that misery loves company.  So guard your mind from negative influences from others.  Every day, all day long make sure that you are guarding what is going into the brain and what you focus on.

2. Feed Your body – Physiology of our bodies is a channel that helps tune into the positive or negative station. Train to push yourself past what you can endure.  Every day go a little further than what you are comfortable with.

–   Knowledge is a notch on the key that unlocks what we seek.  Action is what turns the key that unlocks it.  When we train ourselves to go further than what we are comfortable with, it becomes easier to unlock that dead bolt of a lock.  Because it becomes easier, we are able to unlock more with less effort because we are physically taking action to change our lives.

3.  Have a coach / role model – Surround yourself with someone that has the items that you want in your life and utilize them as a point of reference.  We can accomplish a great deal on our own.  The time frame of getting to our goals is greatly shortened when we utilize someone else as point of reference because they have traveled the road that we are now on.

–   The largest amount of growth occurs in our darkest hour.  A coach keeps us on track and keeps us pushing past what we are comfortable to bear.

–   We all need perspective in our life – We only have one way to view it.  A coach helps us gain a different perspective

4.  Get a plan – Why this is 4th (There is no such thing as perfect) Plans change.  Plan for those plans to change.  However, if you are consistently doing the first 3 things, this is an added benefit.  It is your measuring stick.    If you are off your targets then you know that there is something that needs to change.  It will also allow you to accept mistakes.  Mistakes are going to happen. the difference between succeeding and failing is that those that concentrate on the mistakes and do nothing get nowhere.  Those that focus on their overall mind and action and utilize a coach for contrast and motivation will be 1,000 times further ahead than those that focus on the mistake.

–   Remember 3 feet from gold.  You have a man that invested in everything in the mind, did not get what he expected to get, and he quit.  He lost sight of his goals (Gave into his internal thoughts), changed his actions (gave up), and went somewhere else (He relied on his own strengths.  He had a plan.  His actions were not in place because he had no contrast, he did not stay the task.  He quit!

5. Feed your Spirit – GIVE BACK! Motives do matter.  When others know that you are there to give, they know that you are genuine and they get a glimpse at your heart.  Giving connects you to a greater cause.  You start by giving to yourself by asking to change your mind.  Then you give to your body. Then you give to others by example, partnering with those that have taken the path before you, to help stay the course. Then you have the ability to give to a multitude.  Lastly you give to others in multiple channels that feed back to you.


Your Secret weapon in your success…

“There are a lot of different ways that you can become successful.   It really all depends on what you want out of life.  You can work hard all of your life and not be any further ahead then you were when you started out….  but if you really want to be successful.  You have to give of yourself.”

Had this conversation with a friend a couple of days ago and while I heard what he was saying I didn’t really hear what he was saying.  I say that it was a couple of days ago when in actuality it was more like a few years ago.   It is now that I am starting to realize that what he said to me several years ago was and is very true.  I spent the last several years trying to find a way to apply it.   But in reality I never even started.   Because in order to apply this I have to do something that not to many people are willing to do.  Die to self.  Put other people’s interest ahead of my own.  See them get ahead first and you will have your interest taken care of.

I guess that after several years and I finally understand that the best way to get ahead in life…  Is just to do the things that come naturally to us.   Be a friend, husband, father, wife, mother, daughter, brother, son…

Opening up my ears is not just listening.  It is opening up my heart to really take into account what another person is not just feeling but what makes them tick.  The moral of the story is this… you want to be successful.   Go help someone become successful in the thing that they want to be successful in first.   When that happens you begin to add a value that no amount of money can ever begin to compare to…

I do not know who was in need of this today… but I know that someone out there will read this and they will know.  That there search for success has always been there.   Look at all the friends that consider you a friend because you have always been there for them.   They will always have your back…. You have always had theirs and you have always done things for them without question.   You already have your secret weapon for success.   Go out and do more of it with more people…
