It fascinates me that when we decidie to take on something that is new to us that we can easily start putting pressure on ourselves to be perfect OR as good as someone who has been working on it for years. Mastery comes from building Read the rest

EPISODE 149 – Raise Your Expectations

“Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.”
– Ralph Marston

Has anyone ever told you that your standards are too high? You expect too much? I have… what I find is that too many people are lowering their expectations so they don’t disappoint themselves.

There are some business owners who are wondering why they can’t fill their pipeline and then there are others who are working long hours just to keep up with their client demands.  Business runs on supply and demand.

EPISODE 143 – Productivity Over Procrastination

“Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.”
― Denis Waitley

Procrastination is one of the ways in which you could be delaying or avoiding your success. You may think Read the rest

“Enthusiasm is the energy and force that builds literal momentum of the human soul and mind.” ― Bryant McGill

People lose motivation because they are no longer excited about the pursuit of the goal due to rejection, failure, and not seeing the results they want.
