Hi Team...

I wanted to get this off my mind.....

You are not owed anything....

I am not owed anything....

Why do I say this? Well, recently, I have been coaching business owners and their teams and I can not tell you how many think it should be easier....

And, how many use the virus and other external factors as the reason WHY they don't do things... or take action..

Listen, that is all the mindsets of losers not leaders....

I did a call yesterday that spoke about the difference between Professionals vs. Amateurs....


  • Do whatever it takes to get the job done and pay no attention to time....unless they are wasting it....
  • Make the calls, send the emails, write the notes, travel to the meetings and realize success is the result of all of these activities, not just one.
  • Never looked to be bailed out by others- but instead ask themselves: What can I do to change my results?
  • Realize that without a like minded team, it is almost impossible to win.
  • Live a life of consistency, which is their process and fine a balance between work, play, and dominating their sector.

Now, lets talk about the other group....


  • Find the reasons WHY they are struggling and focus on them...
  • Spend more time planning than doing...
  • Are looking for resources rather than being resourceful and creative...
  • Wait for others to give them a command rather than taking the actions and course correcting as necessary...
  • Are playing defense by trying not to fail, rather than playing offense by asking themselves: How can I win in this situation?
  • Focus too much on things that do not matter and not enough on the things that do....

Make sense?

Which camp are you in?

Maybe, you share time in both... that has to stop.

I want you to be a winner... and that starts by making a decision to no longer do the things you did when you were not getting the results you wanted....

Winning is a process...

Success is the result of a winning process...

When you finally make the commitment to GO PRO, you start to live the life with those luxuries that come with your decision....

Instead of watching people act like animals on social media, you go out everyday and play your game.

You play the game that gives you and your family the results you want.

You stop caring about the opinions and validation of others....


Because you are a PRO.

That is why.

Go act like it in all that you do!

Your Coach,



Dana Cavalea
