I am really excited today....
So, so excited.
Yesterday, after a few amazing coaching sessions, I came into the house, looked on top of our washing machine and saw a box.....
Like I do every day, I run through the mail ( a weird love affair with mail), opening envelopes and boxes and today, totally unexpected, I opened this one magical box.
In that box was 5-author copies of my new book, Habits of a Champion Team.
It actually happened!!
After all of that work I have been telling you about, the book finally arrived and I am really proud.
Now, I never boast like this to you, but this one is really special and means a lot to me.
Opening that box supercharged me.
It gave me a thunderbolt that said, "YOU DID IT- NOW, GO OUT AND SHARE IT!"
But today's lesson is not about a book, it is about a special word: MOMENTUM.
This book elevating my frequency and has me buzzing- which is a lift in energy that will help me build momentum around the book, getting people to engage with it, read it, and most importantly use it to change the way they see things and the culture of their teams, their companies, and their families.
The goal is to build energy, build momentum, and then ride the momentum hard.
This is what I work to do with those I coach- never let them quit, but take daily actions that can help them build progressive momentum.
These 3-steps say this....
Find what you want to do or get done and START.
Then, start BUILDING that thing you started.
Finally, keep pushing it hard....
Keep building momentum.
Momentum is what I refer to as "LIFT" in the book, Habits of a Champion Team.
Whether you are great sports team, individual, or company, the goal is to get LIFT.
Lift is that feeling you have where you feel like everything is rolling, finally.
Life is what we all aim for.
Think of that time in your life when things were rolling, those great times of growth and success.
That is lift.
That is what today is about.
Today is about your working your ASS off to get Lift and you can only do that by taking that first action, by engaging.
Then push, push, push.
Expect nothing less than excellence.
It is the belief along with the work that will get you where you want to go.
Let's take this day and make a decision.
The decision is this: I AM GOING TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP, OR, FOR SOME, THE NEXT STEP.
That is the decision.
And for those looking for another boost, you can pre-order Habits of a Champion Team.
I am so proud of this book and I know it will change the way you think about leadership, growth, and surrounding yourself with only the best!
Go out and win today!
