Hi Team....

I have been up since 3:45am and am feeling pumped, energized, and ready to go!

I am writing to you today from my hotel room in Roanoke, VA after spending over 7hrs. coaching an amazing team of Managers and Leaders yesterday...

The energy was high (because we made it that way) and the team was filled with individuals that wanted to do nothing more than WIN together...

We spoke about trust, courage, belief, and just how important these ingredients are to winning at any endeavor.

I also took the team through an exercise called: WHAT ARE OUR STANDARDS?

Translated to: What do we stand for?

And that is really important...

We must stand for something as individuals and as teams...

But we can not just keep it in our head.

It must be a live document..

Sort of like our own Constitution..

Our own set of guiding principles....

Do you have this?

Most don't and I feel this is WHY they get themselves in trouble, find the same type of person in their life over and over again, and are just unable to get to their next frontier.

So, today, let's get you going on your standards/ principles....

What do you stand for?

Write down anywhere from 5-15 bullet points that are your CORE SUCCESS PRINCIPLES.

For example:

  • I ACTIVATE AND TRAIN MY PHYSICAL HEALTH DAILY ( A SWEAT A DAY)
  • I ONLY EAT FOODS THAT ARE NOT PROCESSED
  • I ONLY SURROUND MYSELF WITH PEOPLE THAT WANT TO WIN
  • I ONLY ALLOW PEOPLE IN MY CIRCLE THAT ARE POSITIVE & UPLIFTING
  • I WORK IN A FOCUSED MANNER, FREE OF DISTRACTIONS
  • I DO NOT ALLOW THOSE AROUND ME WHO GOSSIP 
  • I AM 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OUTCOMES IN LIFE
  • I BELIEVE THAT I BRING THE ENERGY TO EVERY ROOM I ENTER
  • I AM UNSTOPPABLE BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT I AM
  • I AM FULLY COMMITTED TO COACHING OTHERS TO THEIR BEST LIFE
  • I WILL SHOW UP EVERY DAY WITH EXCITEMENT AND ENTHUSIASM
  • I WILL ONLY SPEAK TO MYSELF AND COACH MYSELF THROUGH A CAN-DO, POSITIVE LENSE.
  • I WILL ALWAYS LEAD WITH PASSION & QUIT THINGS THAT BRING ME DOWN
  • I WILL NOT ENGAGE WITH LOSER BASED THINKING, ATTITUDES, PEOPLE OR SITUATIONS THAT STEAL MY ENERGY.
  • I AM A CHAMPION BECAUSE I DO THE DAILY WORK NECESSARY TO BE ONE

This is a list of my CORE PRINCIPLES.

We must get you a list of yours.

It is critical.

Can you see how that list can guide my life?

Do you see how by you having a list like this can guide you through all of life's trials?

Got it?

Now, I want you to take 10 minutes today and do this.

DO IT!

No excuses.

Life is too short for excuses.

Go out and win today!

Time for me to hit the road!

Let's go!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
