        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


        Mid-Year Check Up… Happy Labor Day!?

        Mid-Year Check Up… Happy Labor Day!?

        I was just thinking, the year is nearly halfway over, can you believe it? And for many of us working on 60 to 90-day sales cycles, it’s really already LABOR DAY! #Crazy thought, yes!?

        What I know, is back in January, you set some goals and since then added a few and maybe dropped a few. Yet, if you want to make sure you achieve those goals you’ve set and are committed to, a mid-year check-in is a must do activity.


        Follow me… for a moment:

        1. It’s good to evaluate your progress
          • What have you slacked off on?
          • What goals did you set that you’re really focusing on?
          • What goals did you set that you haven’t made enough progress on yet?
        2. It’s good to weed out and re-adjust the unnecessary.
          • It’s easy to set too many work-related goals at the beginning of the year
          • Market conditions or the competitive landscape changed
          • A mid-year check-in is the perfect time to weed out the unnecessary so you can really focus on what needs to be achieved in that last 5 to 6 months.
        3. It’s ok to give yourself permission to course correct
          • Conducting a mid-year check-in typically reinvigorates your motivation and inspires to take action in getting back on track.
          • Course correct and achieve more this year.
          • Most of all take action now

        Here are a few tips to help your goals check-in be as effective as possible.

        1. Look at the bigger, longer-term picture AND the small details
          • 2, 5 and 10 years from now? (Big)
          • What are the daily actions that must occur? (Small)
        2. Make a powerful list and engage an accountability partner
          • Stop doing
          • Start doing
          • Do more of
          • Do less of
        3. Work backward from the achievement.
          • Visualize the end result
          • Reverse engineer your timetable
          • Chunk it down into bite-size deliverables

        I’m reminded this time of year it really does not matter how you started the year it only matters how you’ll finish it. Calvin Coolidge, said it best, “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

        This week at JPAR we’ll be having a private live session on the 7 steps to crush the last half of the year with 3 very specific strategies proven to drive results. This, along with – our detailed 26 point business review – and our 3 part series on lead generating like a boss will clearly differentiate the committed from the interested.
