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”

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #599 – Someone Ate My Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups

Quote: “Time is non-refundable, use it with intention.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Hummmmmm someone ate my Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.

OK, first off… I don’t like Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups and Second, I’m annoyed they were eaten.  Well, I really don’t know if they were actually eaten, but I did not get them.

So how is it I didn’t get something I don’t like?  Amazon!

I actually ordered a pack of Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups off Amazon… why?  Because they’re a gift for my cousin.  He LOVES them… I’m putting them in the package with other silly things that he loves.  It’s a goofy package, but, in this new marketing era… I could pull up Amazon, spend 15 minutes, and have all the silly trinkets that he would love arrive at my door.  Presto, instant present.

BUT

Today, and this is a first for me, I had four packages arrive… One was an oversized padded yellow mailer, with the end open and empty inside.  OH and ask me if I actually opened the end super wide, shook it thinking some magical Reece’s Peanut Butter Package was going to appear. (but really, I did glare inside and shake it… why? I have NO clue)

Next step, text my other cousin that used to work for Amazon…  who said, that sometimes empty mailers “happen”, just log in and file for a refund.  It really was that simple.  I was able to return the package that I never received.  Mentally processing returning something I never received is harder than actually returning something I never received.

Tick tock, tick tock, you realize that at the end of reading this blog post you’ll be at a point in your life where you’ll never get that time back again?  My tid bit is Amazon returns are easy.  My REAL take away is… choose wisely how you spend your time.   It’s easy to get distracted and unlike empty packages, time is not refundable.  🙂

Tribeology.com – Episode 521 – Talent is Everywhere.

Grab Your Free Gift: The 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine

 

“What you lack in talent can be made up with desire, hustle and giving 110% all of the time”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

Give it your all 110% of the time is a great idea, but it’s exhausting.  How about expanding your own definition of talent?  Today, I went on an adventure to court.

I know… just a day in the life… but we have a disagreement with our asphalt job so, when disagreements are unresolved… court happens.

Anyway — I was sitting in court and looked down at the floor.  The floors are perfectly vacuumed – I mean the carpet goes up on the baseboard, too – it was clean… in the corners!  Then I looked on the baseboard AND it was dust free.

This was in the area where the public sits and waits… I thought to myself, wow someone has some amazing talent and pride to make it this clean.  I appreciated it.

Next… We stopped at McDonald’s and the gal that took our order was speaking Spanish to the customer in front of us, then took our order in English.  But the first group came back and asked a question in Spanish and while she was talking to us in English, she talked to him… it was amazing – what a gift of languages.  Talent, raw talent.

It may be such a thing that the “hustle/grind” that exhausts us could slow down a bit if we looked at our gifts as talent and recognized them as talents and gifts and started to put them to work.  What I’m saying is, cut yourself some slack… you are talented and surrounded by talent.

Grab my free guide: The 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine

 

“When you wake up and need a nap.”

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

HA!  How do you like today’s motivation?  I’m a little tired, so no worms for me, right?  WRONG!

Here’s the deal, quit trying to be someone you are not.  If you wake up and need a nap, yet going through your head is, “the early bird catches the worm”… you already start your day at a disadvantage because you are not operating at 100%.

You need to know your own strengths and how to make them soar.  If your body needs sleep, but you start on a frantic pace to get the worm… you are actually competing with a bunch of people waiting for some worm to come across their path.

Now… if you happen to sleep, get up a little later, and have a brilliant idea that you take action on… let’s say, you grab a garden hose, turn it on, water the grass to make several worms come to the surface – the refreshing sleep that spurred a brilliant idea served you better!

Don’t fall into the trap of doing something because you “think” you should or because you’ve always done it that way… do what is best for you!

As for the Koala… they sleep all but 4 hours a day!  If you ever have the chance to hold one, OMG, do it.  We had the opportunity at a zoo in Australia.  But really, they are only up 4 hours a day!  YAWN.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 497 – Making Life Less Suck!

“It’s all about finding the calm in Chaos.” – Donna Karan

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

Happy Halloween!  I decided not to go with a “spooky” inspiration and instead focus on the chaos… well the calm in the chaos!

That should give you a little insight into my past couple days.  🙂

I launched a new site and it’s been pretty successful.  What I’m doing is “testing” the processes I’m looking forward to teaching all of you.  It’s one thing to teach theory… but I’m not big into that.

I prefer results.

But… the path to results is often messy.  ANNNND that sums up my past week.

When you have that “chicken/egg” feeling and everything seems like it needs to be done before everything else can be done… my advice.  Pick something.  And just go!

SO I did.

It’s sucked… but I have a firm grasp of what it’s like to be the student in my own world and now I can make it “less suck”  hahaha

Stay tuned!

And by all means… KEEP GOING!

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” Italian proverb

Wednesday: Mid-Week Motivation

What to do when you’re just not motivated.  Hey, we all get into a mood where we just aren’t motivated to do our work.,

Welcome to Wednesday’s mid week motivation!  I wasn’t motivated.  It’s been a tough week.  We’ve had personnel and equipment challenges at my business as well as a couple personal challenges, and right now I’m feeling pretty wrung out.  I just can’t get my head around writing this post.

Well, I didn’t.

Sometimes it is okay to have another team member that can step in and support you when needed.  That’s what happened in this case as this post was ghost written. So, hey everybody, take time to cultivate a reliable team that can support you in your time of need.  Even if it’s writing a motivation post when you just can’t find the motivation…  Ugghhh.

If my blog is helping you… I love it! Come and join my group for more!  start here

 

Episode #377 – When Bad Habits Become Good

“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.” – Benjamin Franklin

Welcome to Midweek Motivation! Do you have bad habits?  Of course you do.  We all do.

The question is how many good habits do you have and what does your balance sheet look like?  Meaning… Benjamin Franklin was a pretty smart guy.  I don’t think we should start to look at our balance sheet as an excuse to have bad habits.  That’s kinda defeating the purpose.

Rather, understand that your bad habits are just that… habits.  Just like we have good habits we also have bad habits.  What we do repetitively is what we become, therefore that bad habit can go away by implementing a better habit in it’s place.

So for me… I love Diet Pepsi.  It’s a bad habit. I drink too much of it… so I’m wondering if a better habit is Diet Coke?  HAHA — no, a better habit would be iced tea or even better…water.  See… bad habit becomes good habit.

I’ll be sure to think about that as I enjoy my Diet Pepsi!  You see my Bad Habit is good! Yummmmmmm

I’m not sure if that was really motivating, but it did make me laugh!  Have an awesome day.
