Hi Team...

Welcome to December!

We did it!

The last month of 2020....

I am really excited about this because in these next 4-weeks.... we get to tally up all of our wins and see how we did for the year!

Have you started already?

Have you started to count and write down all the amazing things you have done this year?

For most, it is easy for them to come up with their #craplist... but their win list they often take for granted and never take the time to realize all of their wins!

And- if you are like most I coach- you had a lot of wins.

Some big, some small, some that you may not even consider a win at all...

But, they are wins, so stand up tall!

Be proud of your efforts, your work and your struggle- even take pride in all of the things that you had to juggle...

Sorry for the rhymes- one of the things I am proud of is my new kids book coming out in a few weeks: BRYANT FOR THE WIN...

Kids love rhymes.

Adults love rhymes.ย 

So, it's December- it is time.

It is time to realize that life is a process and not just a sprint....ย 

It is filled with clues and little hints..

Of what you should do and who you should be.. always be yourself and never like me...

Most are chasing wins and results that are great....

But you should be chasing a process, not doing activities and tasks that you hate.

Do things that light you up and fill you with cheer and 2021 will be an amazing year...

If you choose to do things that cause you tension and pain, you will end up getting negative results again and again...

YOU are better than that.

YOU deserve to live out your dream...

YOU can only do that with great clarity and a strong team...

So, as you enter December, the last month of the year, fill yourself with positive thoughts, positive emotions, and get rid of your fear...

This year has been great contrary to what many may say, stop focusing on the things that got in your way...

Look for the good when most see bad, look for the happiness when others are sad...

When you train your mind to see positive things- you will be amazed at what the Universe brings.

Stay strong, stand tall- but don't try to do it all.ย 

Do one thing, then another, another and another.

If one does not work- change- but don't keep doing things that make you suffer..

Got it?

As you go into today filled with passion in all that you do- I am sure that by bedtime you will have realized the Champion in you!

Now- team- let's go make it happen today.

Your success will come from a great process..

Stop chasing your results and judging yourself as win or lose at the end of each night if you did not land that big deal today...

If your process is right- IT will come.

IT= big deal, small deal, new job, new company taking off, weight-loss, better relationships, more opportunities...

Just keep going!

Cheers to December!

Let's GO!

Your Rhyming Coach,
