TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 795 – Are You Sure You Want to Achieve Your Goal?

Quote:  “Congratulations! You Can’t!”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Today’s quote captures your attention, doesn’t it?!?!  Guess what… I’m the one that said it!  hahaha

My niece was hanging out and I don’t even remember what the heck she was talking to her mom about – but she all of a sudden said, “I can’t” and without missing a beat… I chimed in, “Congratulations! You’re right!”

She looked at me with that stare you give people when they throw away a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie.

I went on to say, “Your goal was ‘I can’t’ and guess what, you didn’t – that means you are successful at goal!  Your goal of not achieving — soooo….. congratulations”

Needless to say, she was not impressed.

Saying “I can’t” is a self fulfilling prophecy.  We are all guilty of it… and often we say it without realizing it. But, the next time you catch yourself saying, “I can’t”…. stop and decide if this is the success you’re trying to achieve.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #738 – Just Keep Going

Quote: “Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement” – Matt Biondi

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Last week I talked about taking the high road.  Sometimes its tougher than others… well my saga has continued now or over a week.  It’s getting better… I think.

BUT… this is when you just have to jump in with both feet and just go with persistence.

On Monday I encouraged you focus on trust because big changes are coming that will command a swing back to all things real.  But this involves really focusing on your posting schedule and creating content people really want to read.

If you feel like you’re getting no where with your efforts… you simply don’t know how close you are!  Your ability to keep going will be rewarded.

Remember, build your own list.  Turn the list into a tribe.  And just keep going!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 734 – Sometimes the High Road Sucks

Quote: Want to avoid the crowd? Always take the high road.

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

It’s easy to yell back.  It’s easy to put someone down.  But it takes some serious skill to rise above the ugly.

Some days are harder at your business than others…  Let’s use the example of online reviews to illustrate how the concept of the “high road” is important.

In the WAR of online reviews… the least crazy person sounds most credible.  For example… I have a bad review from a guy… it was 3 years after the incident that he posted… Well… since he’ll never see this blog.  I would love to write, “Yeah, how’s the DWI… since you were so drunk I called the cops as you drove away” — but is that necessary?  It would feel good to make that my reply (oh whi am I kidding, that felt good to type) but again, he’ll never read it here and I feel comfortable using it as an example for you.

It makes more sense to let him rant and just not comment.  I know, some would disagree and say you need to comment… there are times that silence IS a response.

Another example, the last couple weeks have been SUPER difficult for me. Lots and lots of math and cross checking.  You own a business, you know that means something ain’t adding up… which is typically an inventory shrinkage problem.  It sucks, you have things like this that happen, but guess what, the high road is difficult because the argument, put downs, and mud slinging is easier.

However

Sometimes you need to grin and suck it up.  In other words, take the high road.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 672 – FOMO is Real.

Quote: “Can’t be hesitant. When you go for it, go 100% and crush it!”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Are you struggling with a decision?  Hesitation will drive you crazy!

What makes me laugh is that we have a text code FOMO and honestly so much of hesitation comes down to FOMO!

Ask yourself, why can’t you make a decision.  Is it because you’re worried that this decision will affect another and maybe the “other” is better?  It’s not so much the analysis paralysis.  It’s just FOMO

But guess what… when you don’t make a decision you miss out on everything!

WOAH. What the heck.

YES… no decision results in nothing. You stay the course. If you wanted to stay the course you wouldn’t explore a new path in the first place… so you might as well just make the decision quick and crush it!

Go 100% in!  It’s time.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 666 – Laugh at Yourself.

Quote: “Remember, your best is yet to come! Keep climbing!!”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Right now we’re in the middle of “Spring Rush” at the marina — what’s Spring Rush?  OMG… it’s the time between ice out and Memorial Day Weekend.

It’s this crazy time frame when people pick up their boats from the long long winter.

This winter was especially long in Minnesota.  After all, we broke the all time snowiest February on record…. so everyone just wants to get outside.

Well… there are still things that have to be done to prep a boat, there are things that have to be done to prep a marina… and there are only so many hours a day.  Therefore, when it hits 75 degrees people call and think that they can pick up their boat “today”.  I mean it’s only one boat.

They need to be gently reminded that we process 10 boats a day and there are 80 on the list before them.  Alrightie, that aside.

I thought today would be a great day to feature the advice of “keep going” so I looked up this phrase on Twitter and I was all set to use the Lyrics from Rodney Atkins… “If you’re going through hell, keep on going…”

Then I realized this is episode 666!  HAHAHAHAHA

That really made me laugh!  I got no words of inspiration.  Just KEEP GOING.

So this midweek motivation is all about the big belly laugh.

So…. Laugh at yourself and just enjoy life.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 660 – Is Your Refrigerator Running?

Quote: “Do not let yesterday’s setbacks affect today’s motivation.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

It’s hard to get over a setback.  And by setback, I mean arriving at the store 5 minutes after it closes… or eating your ice cream cone and having it wobble off the cone to the ground.

The things that bum you out.  The things that make you go UGHHHHH and change your mood.

Guess what, if it happened yesterday, leave it yesterday.

You wake up today – it’s new!  Sometimes it’s easier than others, especially when the thing from yesterday… is like a bad soap opera that continues today – but do what you can to not let it affect you.

I’m saying this as my refrigerator STILL does not work! We’re on day 4… it started with the freezer melting everything inside… now it’s advanced to the fridge.  And if you’ve followed me for a while, you know how I like ice cold Diet Pepsi.

It’s crazy, but don’t let it affect today.

The repair has been ordered, the parts will arrive, and in a month it won’t matter. Therefore, you can’t let the setback affect today.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 642 – Don’t Stop!

Quote: “If you’re not growing, you’re stagnant.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Ever had a lazy day?  One where you simply did not want to do anything… sure!  We all have those days.

Then you turn on the TV and you see some amazing sports finish.  Maybe it was Tiger Woods winning the Masters, or the Marine with leg cramps that crawled across the finish line of the Boston Marathon.   Both kept going.

Now… It’s not that they’ve ever had a lazy day.

But this is something to think about — when you have a lazy day, meaning you’re “stagnant” you are not only not gaining ground – BUT… think about this… you are actually losing ground because someone else is moving forward!

I don’t want to stress you out — but let’s think about this… there are three people — the person in first is 5 steps ahead of you and the person behind you is one step away… if you stop and everyone goes forward – the person behind you is now even and the person in front of you gained a step!

OMG.

Don’t stop AND change your mind set to “If you’re not growing you’re actually going backward”
