Hi Team... 

My favorite part about coaching is when the person you are coaching has that "snap-moment"...

That is the moment they realize they have been B.S.'ing themselves...

It is the moment where everything changes...

It is the moment where things get real...

AND, reality is faced.

That moment could be when you get on the scale and see you are 40lbs. overweight....

Which is simply gaining 1lbs. per month for 48 months- or over an extended car lease or finance.

It could be when you realize you have been earning the same amount of money for the last 5 years...

Which is you simply not upgrading your vision, goals, and operating system (daily habits and actions)...

It could be when you realize you are a terrible parent who is more focused on their work than building their family...

Which can often be masked in the words: I am doing this for you... for us!

It could be when you realize that you are not maximizing your full potential.

Which is simply you deciding to be comfortable, to no longer take risks, and to accept your status quo as good enough..

Well, I tell you what focus...

That is bullshit.

No more.

Stop accepting the above.

Make a commitment and a pact with yourself that you are willing, able, and ready to make a change....

That is the first action.

TO DECIDE.

The decision to no longer accept your own bad, loser talk.

I have been in the business of managing talent for years- both performing and underperforming.

The work I do with both is the same- GET THEM TO UPGRADE.

UPGRADE:

  • Their mindset
  • Their vision
  • Their daily game plan
  • How they go about doing and asking for things
  • How they see things (possible vs. not)
  • The actions they take each day
  • What they deem important vs. not important
  • Their expectations of themselves and those around them

You see, we are not meant to stay the same, think the same, or be the same.

WE are meant for growth.

So, as we attack today, ask yourself this:

WHERE AM I PLAYING IT SAFE, OR NOT PLAYING TO MY POTENTIAL?

Follow that with...

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE.

By making this verbal... 

The next step is you getting pissed off for tolerating it for so long...

There are a lot of people out there that have lost their hope and dreams- for many that is because they simply stopped betting on themselves and taking ACTION.

Take action.

Action is the answer.

Let's go!

Your Coach,
