Transforming People's Lives

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 082922– This Week’s Strategy – Today is not my day.

Be honest there are days where you say today is just not my day. I do not feel like doing anything today. You crawl out of bed at a tortoise pace and by the time you reach the office whether you are in a job or working for someone else most people recognize that you are in one of your moods.

These are just your feelings. I don’t feel like doing anything today. You do not live by feelings alone, if we all lived by feelings alone life would really be a bigger challenge. Our feelings don’t tell us what to do or we should not take action on our feelings. Just imagine our loved ones just doing things because they feel to do it or your children misbehaved in school and when asked the response is : I feel to do this. You could imagine the chaos if we all acted on our feelings, it is like people just walking and driving on the road doing whatever they feel.

Every day is your day, you get the opportunity to witness and experience a new day when you awake. You make the day what you want it to be. Your thoughts, your actions are your choice. We all also have moods, we can change from one mood to another, sometimes in a wink of an eye, something pissed you off and voila, you are so upset, that you are ready to bark at anyone who pass your way. You can take charge of your day, because that is your choice.

Next time you get up in one of those moods try telling yourself – if I was feeling better what would I be doing? Then start to do whatever you would do if you were feeling better. Try it and today and everyday could be really your day because it is already yours so just claim it.

Question for you – have you checked to see how much you are paying in gas for your car lately? If you would like an option to reduce your monthly bill take a look:

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 082222– This Week’s Strategy – How can I make things better?

How can I make things better for my family, my loved ones, my business and my job?

Everyday we get opportunities to make things better and sometimes we overlook these opportunities. Instead we complain about everything: the economy is bad; no one is buying; the government is not helping the small businesses; the Banks squeezing some people.

On the job: I hate this job; I can’t stand the people I work with, they can’t be trusted. Then there is the loved ones and family: I can’t live with them anymore, they are driving me nuts; they don’t do this or that; I don’t like how they do things; they depend on me for everything.

 So we have blamed everyone else but ourselves.  All these issues are opportunities to make things better. How can you make things better in your business, your job, your relationships? Don’t miss these opportunities. If you really can’t do anything about some of them, as hard as it is, you may have to make the decision to let them go and move on. 

Look in the mirror- do you walk with droopy shoulders, that is all the stuff that you are holding on to, they are heavy and you probable have been carrying them for a long time, so make a decision now and just let go. As you do this your walk would improve, you would feel lighter, you would walk with your shoulders upright, a woman or man with a purpose. Try it. Better days are ahead so just let go!

Remember the gas issue so there are options to save, take a look:

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 081522– This Week’s Strategy – Should I quit and move on?

There is a saying when the going gets tough the tough gets going. The truth is not many of us like to deal with difficult or challenging situations, we prefer to quit and move on.
It’s like something is wrong on the job, or in a relationship and the first response is – I am out of here. 

What about making a commitment and sticking with it. 
So many people quit their jobs, leave their relationships because it is too stressful, they can’t deal with it . The quickest and easiest way to get wrinkles is to keep quitting. I am not saying there are times when you have to quit , you have to leave that relationship or that job, but when you keep quitting there is no opportunity to develop, it is just the easy way out. 

When you make a commitment you say I am all in, even in the tough times. When you do this and ask God for help things begin to fall in place.
Let’s try to avoid not only the body wrinkles but those of the soul as when we quit we leave too many unfinished business behind. 

Let’s get serious we are all looking at our expenses and gas prices are not helping. Why not explore a new away o save on those gas bills? Take a look:

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 080822– This Week’s Strategy – Are there really Success clues?

Let’s talk about success clues. Everyone wants to be successful. Some people go crazy trying to be successful.

If someone is successful wouldn’t you see some clues? When you get a new job sometimes you are placed as an Intern or you are asked to understudy someone or sit with them for a while and the reason is to learn from them. Look at their clues. What do they do daily? What is their routine? How do they interact with others? How are they doing it? What’s their attitude towards business or work? What’s their attitude towards life in general?

Success always leaves clues and the idea is if you want to be successful you need to find someone who is successful in your field and learn from them. I know that there are persons who do not like to train others or to share their knowledge. When you help someone it does so much for you, it is really amazing.

You cannot be in business by yourself, you need people, everyone you interact with plays a part in your success journey and story. As you reach out and help you develop further you discover new things and new ways of doing things.

So this week look for the success clues in your field and use them and don’t be afraid to share your clues.

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 080122– This Week’s Strategy – Did you get right?

Getting it right is always a problem, especially when you are trying to build a business or a career.

What you should remember is that you don’t have to get it right all the time. You will make mistakes. That is life. We all make mistakes at some point or another. 

Remember the time you pressed that sent email but did not mean to press send to all those persons or there was an error in the email. Some people just love to get it right, and when they make mistakes, they are so embarrassed that they avoid people, especially those persons who know about their mistakes.

There is no need to get it right all the time, as mistakes help you to learn, to discover new options and develop your skills, talent and may even help with your relationships. So forget about getting it right and see what that mistake is telling you and move on.

There are always so many options in life to getting it right and one of them is learning to reduce your vehicle gas expenses. Go ahead, take a look:
