If you’re doing the work, but not seeing the results you think you should, don’t give up doing the work. Your time will come. You are still successful. Sometimes the timing isn’t exactly right, but it will be if you don’t give up.

Take a sneak peek into the goals, habits and attitudes of people who get the results you would like to see for yourself. Likely you will find there are certain activities they do every day, even though their preferences may differ.

Confidence and contentment increase our enjoyment of life — our home business (from the luxury of our own homes, I might add) life and our personal life. They expand what we perceive is available to us.

You can change your comfort zone when your ‘why’ is big enough. Keep in mind ‘why’ you are doing what you are doing.

The road to reaching your goals may not be an easy one, especially if it’s the road less traveled. Keep re-evaluating your goals and your path to make sure you are still on the right road.

“When you have success from stepping out of your comfort zone, that’s when you realize you can keep doing it.” — Julie Smith

Make your life the best it can be. Write down your goals. Get to work. Don’t procrastinate.

There is an old proverb that says that those who want to build a house count the cost first. That’s part of what making goals does for us. It helps us design the plan.

Let’s learn to be happy for the good things in our lives.

Re-post from 2014.

When we focus on the right activities, we see remarkable success.

Help others. Repeat.

There is a lot that I can’t do if I over do, so I work to keep things in balance for me. That’s why I love what I do. <3

Get balanced and stay balanced.

In our businesses that we are building from the luxury of our own homes, we communicate with many people — our customers, team members, potential customers, even family members and friends. Keep communication clear and kind.

“…, evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses and just concentrate on making yourself the best you can be.” — Brad Schoenfeld, Look Great Sleeveless

When we are working on making OURSELVES the best we can be, then we are not comparing ourselves with others. We all have the potential and ability to shine within our own limitations, in our home businesses, with our teams, in our families and among our friends. In not comparing ourselves, it also helps us to appreciate the best in others.

“We often use generalities when we speak. Although our statements are clear to us, listeners may interpret something quite different. If you want to make an important point, take the time to say precisely what you mean.” … Asking “What are you angry about?”, instead of, “Are you angry with me?”, … “implies that you have already decided how your partner feels.” — 20 Communication Tips for Couples

You know what I’m going to say — this applies in business and on our teams as well as in our families. Let’s be clear when we are speaking. The results are so much better.

Every new day brings new possibilities and opportunities for something new. Don’t let today go by without taking advantage of one of them. Stretch your limits a little today. It’s a great way to cope with stress. #stretchyourlimits

“Often people ‘nag’ about what they don’t like or don’t want, and yet they fail to tell their mate what they do want.” — 20 Communication Tips for Couples

What does this have to do with business? We find that people complain (team mates, work mates) about what they aren’t doing themselves, and fail to communicate their wants and needs. Before we complain, lets check ourselves first. Secondly, lets communicate clearly what we want and what we need from each other, and talk to the right people to get what we need.

One way to handle stress is to not know all the answers.

Learn to love the monotony. It’s the monotony of some of the everyday activities that help us grow. There are everyday activities that all of us would rather not do, but need to be done. Just do them. Whistle while you work.
