Are you keeping up or stepping up?

Feb 13, 2019 - Are you keeping up or stepping up? Are you striving for success based on what everyone else is doing? Are you focused on competing through trying to keep up with what competitors are doing instead of focusing on what they aren't doing? Are you so focused on comparing that you are not daring yourself enough to explore even greater possibilities? Getting out of your comfort zone and being willing to go where no-one else has gone is the mark of true excellence and genius. 

 

Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to the possibility that you are competing in the wrong way. Instead of being in a constant mode of comparing yourself or your company to others, how can you one up yourself through improvement, learning, gaining insights or a skill? How can you step forward to grow and expand? How can you step outside your comfort zone to explore a possibility even if you have nothing to compare it to? You will never know how far you can actually go until you let go of being like others. Being the best version of yourself is so much more powerful than being a version of someone else.

Is it can't or won't?

Feb 6 – Is it can't or won't? What are you willing to do to achieve your desires, dreams and goals? I am not talking about sacrifice. I am talking about motivation, action and continuous growth.  Are you telling yourself you can't focus on something at this time, or cannot pursue something at this time because of a myriad of reasons? Are they reasons, or just excuses? Are you professing to want to reach certain goals, yet aren't taking steps to get ever that much closer? Are you not willing to do what it necessary for insight, understanding, capacity building, additional know-how or support? Whenever you are striving for something, it is always going to feel just beyond your reach. Your willpower is your greatest asset to achieving anything once you believe you will and you give yourself the power. 

 

Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to the possibility that your "can'ts" and "won'ts" are the problem.  What are you telling yourself and others that you can't do at this time that could help you move forward? What are you telling yourself or others that you won't do at this time? What are your reasons? Are they real, legitimate reasons, or actually excuses because you don’t want to get out of your comfort zone? Is your confidence waning, and that's the real reason? Is you energy waning, and that's the real reason? Have past attempts tainted your ability to believe you can, and so you won't go there again? Honestly answer these questions, and then replace the naysaying going on in your own mind with "yaysaying." Succumb your mind to any and all inspired action steps you can take. Open yourself up to all possible resources, options and support. Believe you can do, and guess what?  You can!

Is your vision inspiring enough?

 

Jan 30 – Is your vision inspiring enough? Do you have a vision for your future that excites and exhilarates you? Does just thinking about this desired outcome impassion and invigorate you? Does this vision motivate you into action and instill a determination against all odds? If you answered "No" to any of these questions, then perhaps you need to think bigger, broader, and more optimistically about what is possible for you and your future.


Take an MM&I Moment to awaken your imagination to the ultimate future you desire.  What do you value most and how does this show up in your future? What are you most passionate about and how does this flourish in your future? What will make you want to do something everyday towards achieving that vision? What will get others important to you as excited and motivated along with you? Your vision can become reality when you are clear what you most desire. Opportunities abound to help you make it happen. Simply think beyond what you see and vision beyond what you think.
