Control everything! (or not)

We wake up each day with the intention of having the best day we can. In some cases we carry on pretty well. In others, we have to fight through muck and keep our eyes downstream.

Each day we can only control so much. Certain decisions are completely above us or out of our scope and control. It’s those days that are hardest.  How do we keep a positive outlook when we can’t control anything?

It is during these times that paying it forward and being the best human you can be on an individual level matters the most. How you treat the grocery clerk, your next customer, your boyfriend or girlfriend or best friend. Every day interactions count in the big picture.  Just like doing exercise for 10 minutes a day adds up over 365 days, being kind, loving and living with gratitude adds up every day.

Not everything will be in our control.  It hinders us on an individual level if we let those instances fuel anger or negative emotions.

Once you have determined your best course of action, remain positive! Don’t let anger override your best intentions that you set for the day. Remember that you have to live with yourself all day and the decisions that you ultimately make.

Help make those decisions the best ones possible for your life and the community around you. Stay positive, pay it forward, be nice and live with gratitude. Then you are truly in control.

Make it the best day!

Affirmation

Find your passion, connect with people, build relationships. The money will come, it’s secondary.

Having a positive impact on someone’s life will mean more than any monetary value.

Slight delay

To my loyal readers!!

Sorry about the delay in-between posts. There has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes (think of the curtain in the Wizard of Oz) to create a new logo and rebrand for 2017.

There will be more blog posts to come, they just might trickle out a little slower here in December. Kind of like molasses at this time of year…you know… 🙂

It has been a great year and new opportunities are around every corner. Remember to keep your eyes open. You never know where the next big step forward will come from.

Keep you positive affirmations going. Say them often and say them loud! (The car or shower is a great place for this) Your intent creates your reality, be as strong with your intent as possible. The return will be quicker and more fruitful than you could have imagined!

Take advantage of this wonderful Friday, rejoice that you woke up to live it!

Make it the best day!

Constant motion

We can be static in our learning or we can progress. If the choice is made to progress, great things happen. It opens up new doors and paths you never saw in the first place.

Our society likes things to be neat. You should be in this job for X amount of years and then retire. Well, that isn’t for everyone. Even if you are currently in that position and not loving it, then why not change?

You can create any reality that you envision. Yes, it will take some work, but the reward is more than worth it. Financial freedom, scheduling freedom, peace of mind and a work life balance. All of that is possible and closer than you think.

Be in motion, learn things that excite you. Seek out challenges. Overcome them and see where it takes you. Chances are you didn’t see that path or door just 2 days ago.

Make it the best day!

Holidays

Holidays are fast approaching. Before they become all about gifts and travel, take a moment to realize what they really mean.

Spending time with your friends, family and living with gratitude. This time of the year can overwhelm everyone quickly. Before that happens, step back and say out loud everything you are thankful for!

This shouldn’t be a time of the year that you want to come and go quickly. Enjoy the time with your loved ones, because every year it goes a bit faster.

Live with gratitude and be thankful for all the love and support.

Make it the best day!

The sun is up

If you’re reading this, you woke up…YES!!

Now it’s time to get to work. The sun is up and we have a checklist of things to accomplish, personally and professionally.

This may not be the ideal situation you wanted to be in at the beginning of the week, or the beginning of the month. However, here we are.

Let’s lock it down and be the change we want to see in the world. Follow you passion. Make your voice heard in the most productive way possible. Encourage a movement to make progress. As a citizen of this great country we can make a difference. Social media makes it easier to mobilize and make headway in your cause.

Take our individual fires and create greatness for today, tomorrow and permanently moving forward.

Make it the best day!

Live with love

No matter what happens, we need to live with love and gratitude. The only way we can see change in the world is to treat everyone better.

If we are divided, then we can not move forward.

Treat everyone with respect, love and gratitude. That will go farther than hate, name calling and grandiose verbiage ever will.

Live with love.

Make it the best day!

Emotional response

An email comes through with some not so nice things to say about a product, experience, or a recent transaction from a client. What is the first thing you do?

Most likely it is get a little irritated and want to respond with a lot of “I’m right and you’re wrong” type statements. Those might be good for grade school but in business we need to make decisions with a clear mind and separate feelings from a response.

If we responded with our emotional reaction every time, chances are we would end up in a lot of arguments and lose clients. A good way to start a response is to look at the facts and take your time. Do not respond in 5 minutes or even 30 minutes. Take a couple of hours to let your emotions come back to baseline.

Also remember, we don’t know what is going on in our clients life. They could have an extremely stressful day and you happened to take brunt of it (which is not the way to go, but that is another conversation)

Take a couple of hours to formulate a response. Remember to keep emotions out of the email and remain cordial. Use facts and offer more assistance.  The more help you offer, the more difficult it becomes for the other person to push anger towards you.

Always try to keep your emotions in check when dealing with business relationships. It will help keep client relationships strong and show you can be counted on to deliver a solid customer service experience.

Make it the best day!
