I had to write you this AM…
It was very important….
I have been realizing a major trend in my coaching over the last several months…
Now, as you know, I coach many high performing, high achieving, goal-setting, type A, high capacity, high desire, focused individuals.
(You can picture the type, right? Hell, if I had to guess, that probably describes you)….
Now here is the deal….
When you are chasing something…
When do you stop?
Well, Coach, obviously once you catch it!
Ding. Ding. Ding.
But when do you actually catch success?
Most high achievers…
There is a word today that I believe is 100% responsible for the pressure that most high performers put on themselves.
Ready for it?
That word is SUCCESS.
From when we are young- our parents want us to be successful = pressure.
Our teachers want us to be successful = pressure.
Our sports coaches want us to be successful = pressure.
We therefore want to be successful = pressure (oftentimes to please or appear a certain way to others- or to stand out so we feel great about ourselves)
Well, what if that pressure was actually the cost…
I have to say, over the last few weeks I have found a lot of people to be feeling stress.
From clients to those who I encounter… they are feeling stressed.
Today, I wanted to talk about a few of the reasons WHY many feel stressed- and it really boils down to 4-reasons…..
These, in combination, or in isolation are always the root causes of stress.
So, since most who read this are thinkers, the next time you feel…
Listen, when Monday comes around, you must be ready.
It is THE day that sets the tone for the week.
Now, I am not saying you have to get up and do a dance for Monday- but I am saying you must be ready….
What does ready mean?
Well, it simply means this…
Come Friday, THIS is what I must get done.
Fill in the ______________ for the word THIS.
Last week, when I was speaking with the awesome team at Arkay Packaging, I shared with them the greatest strategy of all….
Well, today is Thursday.
I am back at the farm after a few days of traveling and coaching at a sales retreat!
Today is: Rant Day.
You know what pisses me off?
People piss me off….
Not all people though… just a certain group!
Let me tell you about these people….
So, I am sitting here writing this as I look out onto the water after an amazing sales retreat with one of my favorite companies, Arkay Packaging.
For the last few years I have been so fortunate to lead this retreat as a coach/ facilitator with 3-simple goals:
I do this by sharing the Habits of a Champion, and what makes it easy is the amazing team that sits in front of me.
They have great leadership in Mitchell Kaneff, Walter Shields, Brian Hopkins, and…
Yesterday, I took a few moments to sit back and reflect….
Many of my clients are doing some truly amazing things….
A few are in heavy races to get new executive positions on different corporate teams….
A few are getting ready to sell their companies for more than they could ever imagine….
Some are starting new businesses….
Others are finally taking their health, fitness, and training into their own hands….
All are committed to changing their current state….
All are doing it by changing their energy….
You see, to do any of the above you must rise above…
Have you ever felt stuck?
Well, if you are like most high performers, at some point you have and it is totally normal.
Today, I want to get into the “mechanics of stuck”…
Well, let’s start with WHY a printer jams….
Answer: Too many papers pushing through the printer at once at a speed in which the printer can not separate the papers and as a result can not print anything clear or legible on them- so what happens? The printer stops and a red light start blinking.
The red light says to…
Hope you had a nice weekend!
The last one of June- getting ready to bring on July!
That means summer is officially here.
This past weekend my wife and I went to look at a dog (a livestock protection dog!) who will keep the cows safe!
But leading up to the weekend, I have to admit, I was not feeling 100% peak.
I asked myself “why”- and then started to look at my “key” data points….
My Metrics (Below):
First, I looked at my last entry in my “book of wins”- the book I keep at my kitchen…
Are you ready to WIN this week?
I know that I am- and am pumped about what is ahead….
Every Sunday night I check my schedule for the week- and I look methodically at each time slot, the name next to it, or, the activity within it.
And, over the years, I have built the schedule to match my needs, my best(S), and it includes a systematized approach that includes my coaching, my learning, my free time, and people that give me energy- aka, clients!
With that said, it did take many years to get this right because…
