Week of May 1, 2016 Posts

To become ‘interesting’ you must become ‘interested’. Talk less, listen more. Don’t ‘fake’ interest, ‘take’ interest. — Don Carmont

From my weekly business call.

 

One of the happiest moments is when you feel the courage to let go of what you can’t change. We tend to hang on long after someone has stopped engaging, rather than meet them where they stand. We all need to be willing to “bless and release”. Trying to do things for others that they need to do for themselves is just trying to give them a crutch that doesn’t work. We think we’re helping, but we’re not, because they’re not learning to do it themselves.

This is from my Monday business call. It’s amazing how much these things apply to so many different aspects of our lives, not just our businesses where we are mentoring and coaching people, and helping them to find ways to a better lifestyle.

 

Success is when opportunity meets preparedness.

 

Keep the momentum. Prepare for activity. Time slips away so fast. Can you believe it’s already the first week of May!

 

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” — Buddha

 

Let’s start where we stand. Let’s accept where we are right now and be grateful. Simply take a step; accept. Repeat. That’s what progress is.

From my weekly business meeting.
