There are times when we need someone to call us out so we stop making excuses and put our priorities in order. As a coach I’m going to offer this advice…
Start positioning yourself today and decide what you are thinking about!
Don’t be afraid to test and try new things. Look for an easier, quicker and smarter way to do things using your innate creativity and innovative thinking.
To see changes, you first need to believe in yourself that you can do anything when you put your mind to it!
You need to commit to the decisions that you are making to see the changes that you want. Have you finished what you said you would do today?
The Value of Money and Personal Perspectives on Investments
Every individual has their perception of value, particularly when it comes to money. People are often asked about the value they’ve brought to the table, especially in business scenarios. This ‘value’ could be in terms of time, resources, or even intellectual input. The amount someone is willing to invest, whether it’s in a coach or a program, often relates to their personal financial standing and how they perceive the worth of that service. The crux of this topic is understanding personal value assessments. For instance, while $100,000 may seem insignificant to a millionaire, it may be a fortune for someone else.
Entrepreneurship: The Long Game
Despite the numerous claims and advertisements, there’s no genuine ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme in the world of entrepreneurship. It’s not a sprint; it’s a marathon. Sometimes, the returns on an investment, be it time or money, may take years. The way one manages time or resources reflects their larger approach to life. It’s essential to realize that quick fixes rarely address the root of the problem.
Unlearning and Relearning
Life is a journey of continuous learning. Sometimes, as adults, we need to unlearn old habits to make way for new ones, especially when venturing into unfamiliar territories. The author’s experience with figure skating, despite having a background in ballet, exemplifies this. She had to unlearn ballet techniques and adopt those of figure skating. The point here is persistence, commitment, and the willingness to adapt and learn, irrespective of age or experience.
The Investment Decision: Time vs. Money
When starting any venture, one can either invest time or money. If someone has financial constraints, they might have to dedicate more time to learning and building from the ground up. But if one can afford it, they might hire experts to expedite the process. In both scenarios, it’s about understanding what you can afford to give – time or money, and being realistic about the goals set.
Seeking Guidance and Community Support
Sometimes, the best way to progress is by seeking help. Whether through formal education, hiring a consultant, or just reaching out to a mentor, getting an external perspective can often lead to breakthroughs. It’s also essential to find a supportive community, especially in entrepreneurial ventures. These communities can provide practical advice, emotional support, and even potential business collaborations.
Pursuit of Joy
Not everything in life is about monetary gain or business growth. Sometimes, hobbies and passions, like photography or figure skating for the author, are pursued just for the sheer joy they bring. Such activities can be therapeutic, providing a much-needed break from the daily grind, and sometimes, they can even turn into profitable ventures.
Continuous Learning and Accepting Failures
Life is filled with ups and downs. The key is to remain a continuous learner, be it through books, experiences, or mentors. Embracing failures, understanding them, and learning from them can lead to significant personal and professional growth. The author stresses the importance of staying teachable and open to feedback, which can help in evolving and growing.
The Role of Faith and Belief
Belief in oneself and in God plays a crucial role in an individual’s journey. It’s this belief that can propel someone forward even in challenging times. Connecting one’s spirit, intuition, or heart with their mind can lead to a more focused and fulfilling life. The idea is to find alignment and purpose in what one does.
