Hey Team...

Happy Monday....

Yes, it is August.....

But, that does not mean the World has stopped working!

College Athletes are reporting back to school to get their summer training in....

Teachers are starting to think about their plans and goals for this year....

The Wall Street boys are starting to feel a little bit of guilt spending so many weekends in the Hamptons when they could be manufacturing deals....

And, those type A, high achieving leaders are ready for there to be some more "structure" and harder work come September....

Now, these people are still enjoying themselves.... no doubt.... but the classic high performer is starting to get a bit antsy....

You see, high performers are typically a bit "unsettled"....

They need objectives, clarity, something to chase, something to focus on....

So, too much time off is no good...

But, some time off is very good....

Today, I wanted to talk about OPPORTUNITY...

Because, for many of us, if we are not in the office, on the field, or in the classroom, we forget that there is opportunity all around us...

Whatever your line of work.... sales, marketing, motivational speaking, education...

There is an opportunity to spread your gospel....

There is an opportunity to meet new people and share with them what you feel you need to share...

Whether you are at the beach, hiking, running, at the gym, or doing anything social, remember, OPPORTUNITY is everywhere...

So, although things may seem a bit slower this time of year, never forget OPPORTUNITY is right in front of you....

Don't miss it.

Engage with people.

Share with people.

Show interest in people.

Ask people for what you want.

Tell people what you want.

Don't wait.

That is how you take advantage of OPPORTUNITY.

On the contrary, I have heard many I  coach say:

It is summer, people are OFF.

Who cares. 

I remind people when they say this that people are not battery powered.

They are still capable of communicating.

And, so are YOU!

Remember, OPPORTUNITY is EVERYWHERE and YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Let's GO!

Chase Greatness.

WIN MONDAY.
