Transforming People's Lives

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 091926– This Week’s Strategy – Take action with urgency.

Do you take long when making decisions or do you take action with urgency? Have you ever notice that when you procrastinate things don’t turn out the way you wanted it. Then you beat up on yourself: if I had done this at that time, this would not have happened.

Life is about taking action and sometimes quickly. For example in a game you never know what would happen next so when the ball is in your court you got to go for it. So it is with business, sometimes you do not know what the competition is doing or what they would come up with next, so instead of pondering you need to take action quickly. The market changes in a blink of an eye, stocks increase and decrease, these scenarios are all as a result of people’s actions, sometimes quick actions.

Nothing stays stagnant, everything keeps moving. People get rewarding for taking quick action, e.g if they save someone’s life. What about you? Are there some activity in your life or your business that you need to take action with urgency?

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 091922– This Week’s Strategy – STOP! What did you say?

When you talk or think about yourself and your business what do you say? For some of us I can bet it goes something like this – Business not going too well; the economy is bad; can’t get good people to work; people just not responding to my ads; I’m all stress out over the business or over the job; my relationship is stressing me out. Or – I have all this weight, I don’t have the money to do anything much. You can add your own thoughts to the list.

Whatever your thoughts and words are I am sure they materialize in your day to day activities. Words are like magic spells, they have power, every time you open your mouth you are placing a spell on something or somebody. If you keep saying business not going good, that is what would happen. Many people get through during bad economy or bad times. Every time you open your mouth to speak about someone you are either motivating them or lifting them up or pulling them down. The same goes for your business or your job – if you keep saying your office or company is a mess, then so be it, the mess would surface. Keep saying that you have some weight and the weight would stay there, you may even get some more.

How many times have you said something and you regret saying it? So, before you speak, pause, think a bit on what you are going to say before it comes out. Are you placing some good energy in your business or job or are you going to pull them down? What about your personal life what have you been telling yourself?

Change your words and thoughts and see the difference.

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 091222– This Week’s Strategy – Is there a splinter in your eyes?

Are you looking at people and situations through a splinter? How many times have you done background research on a potential client, employee and when you met in person it was a different story?

We have a tendency to look at people and situations base on our own prejudices, instead of seeing them as a person just as we are, we see all different things about them, which may not be quite accurate. Think about it what are your splinters? Is it depression, so many of us are depressed that it is impossible to view any situation or person any other way, it’s like misery loves company. Is it envy, we are upset that the person may have gotten the promotion or they are doing better than us, their house is bigger than ours, they have a car that we could die for. Is is self centeredness? We are just concerned about us and our family, we can’t help anyone else.

There are many names you can give to your splinter, but unless you remove it, it is impossible to see people as worthy creation just like you. It is impossible to look at them through the eyes of love just as God looks at you. It is also impossible to get that good relationship with that client or even the good relationships at home. Mind you, when you get that eye it can sometimes make or break you. As a child Mom just had to give me that eye, that stern look and I knew that something was wrong.

Remove the splinter and see how better your vision becomes with time.

Monday’s Weekly MEM0 090522– This Week’s Strategy – Are you where you want to be?

Sometimes it helps to take a check of yourself and how you are doing. Are you where you want to be? 

So many people just don’t hit the mark. Every time you meet them – it’s like ‘I am really trying but things are not there as yet, the economy is so bad, business not the same as it was before’. You must ask yourself when would things get there?  When can you really say things are great, or I think the stars are lining up in my area of the sky.

A new month has just started so it is a perfect time to reflect on your performance and how are you going to get to where you want to be. Some questions to ask:

  • What are the things that I am doing right now that’s keeping me back from being where I want to be? Review each one and see those that you can stop doing.
  • Are there things that I can start doing now that would help me move ahead. What are those things, and can I start to do them now?
  • What are those things that I am doing that are moving me forward? Do I have the capacity to place more effort and focus on these?

You see if you just keep going and going with no plan and not knowing what is working and what is not working, you are not going to move forward or get to where you want to be. You would just keep going in circles, so it is time to get off that merry go round and figure out what you need to do to get to where you want to be. The economy is bad, there is no disputing this fact, you hear this all the time, yet there are people who do the money dance all the way to the bank. What about you?
