        A Business And A Life Without Limits!

        A Business And A Life Without Limits!

        “If you can’t get a miracle, become one.” ~ Nick?

        Imagine getting through your busy day without hands or legs. Picture your life without the ability to walk, care for your basic needs, or even embrace those you love. Meet Nicholas Vujicic.

        In 1982 Nick was born without arms and legs and given no medical explanation for his condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given Nick the strength to surmount what others might call impossible.

        It was my honor to introduce Nick to our team recently, and here is a snapshot of five of the seven highlights from his message:

        Everything starts with an attitude of gratitude?

        What was that Abraham Lincoln quote? “Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.” So true, today, I am grateful for those of you that share with me how these blogs or video articles made a difference in your business.

        Accept ourselves for who we are?

        For Nick, the early days were difficult. Throughout his childhood, Nick not only dealt with the typical challenges of school and adolescence, but he also struggled with depression and loneliness. Nick always wondered why he was different than all the other kids. He questioned the purpose of life, or if he even had a purpose.

          • Accept the reality
          • Accept others for who they are
          • Find your purpose
          • Take action

        Think like a winner… think big ACT bigger??

        Nick’s dad used to say: “you weren’t given arms and legs, but you were given a brain. Hire employees so that they can be your arms and legs.” Despite his disability and being bullied at school, Vujicic threw himself into being an entrepreneur at a young age. His first job, in which he earned A$1 an hour was to vacuum the floor, a skill he managed using his shoulder and chin.

        “Don’t give up. And know that there is always someone out there who believes in you and who loves you just the way that you are.” ~Nick?Vujicic

        Motivation is temporary, inspiration and discipline has staying power?

        Motivation alone is unreliable. It is momentary, unpredictable, and can depart as quickly as it enters. Think about it:

        When you listen to a motivational speech, there is an emotional response that is created by an understanding. However, the emotional response wears off, and we fail to revisit the agreement, which incited the emotional response and all the good things that came with it. Thus, we become “unmotivated” until we are reminded again. Sound familiar?

        Do you know how to get out of it? Just do the work. It doesn’t matter how you feel at the time; just do it. Don’t wait until you feel motivated. You will build momentum, and eventually, you will get inspired. Ignore inspiration — if it’s there, great. Use it. If it’s not, act anyway.

        Don’t feel like going to the gym? Just go.

        If you have writer’s block, then write.

        Just don’t wait.

        Don’t wait for the right moment.

        Don’t depend on luck.

        Fear is just a challenge to overcome?

        There is healthy fear… don’t touch that hot stove! And there is limiting fear… in the case I’m writing about today – limiting fear is just “False?Evidence?Appearing?Real!”

        In the type of limiting fear, I’m talking about:

        • Fear sees only the downside
        • Fear doesn’t let you stop to think it through
        • Fear tells us to avoid anything new or unknown
        • Fear constricts rather than expands who we are
        • Fear obscures your intuition
        • Fear often keeps us from making any decision at all

        I’m so grateful for Nick and his message; I’ll leave you with this exercise Nick had our team complete on the spot. Do it now, don’t wait!

        A quick exercise:

        • What is your goal? Financially, spiritually, physically, relationally?
        • Define it specifically. X by Y date by doing these Z daily activities.

        – Win the day, win the week, win the month

        • List obstacles?

        – Define a plan to overcome your obstacles

        – Take action NOW

         

        Your Business Is Like A Rowing Team

        Your Business Is Like A Rowing Team

        I spent some time this week in our Austin, Texas market where one of our REALTOR? team leaders is also a “coxswain” and a rowing coach. He was telling me a story about a new rower, who was placed on a boat with 8 others… he noticed she appeared to be working very hard and sweating profusely, yet her technique was so off it wasn’t helping the team.

        Can you relate to a time where you’ve been working hard and not getting the result you intended?

        A rowing team – and your business – needs more than just quality, skilled resources. You also need all your resources in the right seats, doing the right things.

        Here’s the thing I learned about rowing: in an eight-person boat, each rower has one oar—four on port and four on starboard. If one side pulls harder that the other side, the boat turns. If one side’s oars are raised higher than the other side, the boat tips. In order to find the set and create swing, everyone must work together to balance the boat and have exact timing. Your hands must be at exactly the right height as you slide up to the catch. Every oar has to drop into the water at the exact same time. Everyone needs to pull at equal pressure. All the blades need to come out of the water and release in unison. Any deviation disrupts the boat.

        So, what can we learn?

        First, have a clear direction, but an easy hand on the steering

        The “coxswain” job is to keep the boat on course and steer the straightest line possible. Steering too much means zig-zagging over the course and rowing far more than 2,000 meters, which adds to time. The trick is to keep the end in sight and steer to a center point far down course, not trying to keep coming back to the center every stroke. To do this, the coxswain calls out increased pressure for a few strokes on one side of the boat or the other to correct the course rather than use the rudder, which slows down the boat.

        Learning: High-performance teams always keep the end in sight and know the ultimate objectives of their work. Without a clear picture of the goal, teams thrash with process and fail to achieve proper alignment in their activities. Going in the wrong direction as fast as you can doesn’t get you any closer to the finish.

        Second, it’s not how hard you work, it’s how hard you work together

        It turns out that pulling as hard as you can, without pulling together, actually slows the boat down. Imbalanced power will veer the boat one direction and throw off the timing of the catch and the release. Uncontrolled straining at the oar can tip your weight left or right and toss the boat side to side. A successful team pulls in perfect balance and with perfect timing.

        Learning: Successful teams know that performance is a function of collaboration and coordination, not a sum of individual effort. Knowing how your contribution is affecting the final outcome and staying highly aware of what others are doing while staying in sync is critical to delivering results. Reacting quickly, deliberately and in a coordinated fashion allows teams to adapt to changes, handle new information, and stay on target.

        Make it a powerful week and looking forward to hearing your success stories.
