Leadership matters. Heart-centered leaders are needed now, more than ever. As business owners, our decisions and actions have impact on people’s lives and our communities.
Do you set aside time regularly to plan what you want to do in your business? If not, I strongly encourage you to embrace it for this year as well as going forward. Setting aside time to plan out what you want to do and more importantly the people you want to serve and the growth you want to have is crucial to your success. This month, I want to share with you what I’ve learned and what I’ve found helpful.
Let’s start off by taking a look at why business planning is “one significant secret” to success. There are a few different factors that come up. The first is efficiency. When you start off the year with a clear plan, you can focus on priorities and what’s most important. Instead of spending time trying to...
Have you ever wondered why so many high achievers seem to get much more done than “everyone else?”
I don’t just mean Oprah and DiCaprio, but successful people in all industries over the course of their lives:
Serena Williams - Athlete
Brene Brown - Researcher
Meryl Streep - Actress
Deepak Chopra - Author
Denzel Washington - Actor
Sheila C. Johnson - Entrepreneur
They face the same (and sometimes more) struggles as everyone else, but how do they quickly overcome them and rise to the top?
The secret is…they constantly reinvest in support and frameworks...
which help them nail and scale their personal and professional aspirations!
This is the hallmark of any great leader - continuous education and self-development.
We’re 21 days into 2022. Let’s talk about forming new habits.
We all have times in our lives where we intentionally want to change our behavior for the better and create new habits for ourselves.
This could be getting into the habit of eating healthier and drinking more water.
Or it could be spending more quality time with loved ones and growing our business.
Or it could be work related, or spiritual, or…
There are so many areas in our lives that could be improved and made easier when we create new habits.
Getting into the habit of doing something is often easier said than done.
We seem to acquire not-so-good habits without any effort, but getting into a “good” habit can be a little more challenging.
Let’s break down new habits into a three-step process that makes it easy to follow until we’ve internalized the new behavior and made it a true habit – something we do...
Every weekday, I workout.
This time last year, I couldn't even do one sit up.
Now, I crush 200 sit ups every weekday (Monday through Friday) along with a 30 or 45 minute workout.
The funny thing is...that I didn't wake up one day and say to myself "Self...let's do 200 sit ups today."
However, I did wake up one day at the beginning of this year with a desire to look and feel better and get physically stronger.
You see...my husband, Ty, exercises consistently.
One day, I heard him watching a video (on YouTube) while working out.
I noticed the video had intense, more challenging exercises along with beginner modifications. Some workouts were short while others were longer.
I was intrigued and decided to try it.
And, I really liked it!
I started working out with my husband every weekday. We created a habit of exercising, encouraging each other, supporting one...
High achievers – in both the online world and in the corporate world – generally have positive attitudes, know how to take action, and know how to ask for help. They’re not afraid to bring in experts to help them improve their leadership and development skills.
Taking action is not necessarily an inborn trait but it’s certainly a skill that can be learned. High achievers don’t reach their level of success by overthinking their business plans or by waiting for opportunities to present themselves. Those are quick ways to stall your business.
High Achievers Develop Confidence
High achievers learn to develop the confidence to make smart decisions and take action without overthinking or asking for approval. Developing that confidence is something a coach can help their clients achieve.
Knowing one’s limits and knowing when to ask for help are evident when a high achiever decides to hire a coach or an employee. They know they need help; they see...
I’d love to hear about it.
