When a business hits a plateau or even a downturn, the business owner typically looks to the usual suspects: strategic planning, marketing, recruiting and developing better talent, setting new goals, and tactics to improve financial results.
These are all critical areas to constantly improve. But they are not enough.
Unfortunately, business owners sometimes ignore the one factor that might really be keeping their businesses from taking off: the business owner’s thoughts which come from our belief systems.
Many business owners have beliefs that ...
Last week we hosted our goals teleseminar and the feedback was incredible! If you were not able to catch the live program it is available at the link below.
With all the amazing reaction we have gathered from this program, we are even more excited for our tele-forum which we are hosting on October 30th at 7:00pm EST! One cannot contest the value of visioning and setting objective goals in one’s pursuit of achievement and thus happiness.
Unlike the teleseminar, this program will include ...
When you ask people about setting goals, they seem to be in either one camp or the other - they either do it or they don't.
One of the reasons that people don't like setting goals is because more often then not, their goals never come to be, so they just have resolved that setting goals may work for everyone else, but not for them.
There is no doubt that setting goals is one of the best things you can do to make ...
The most important thing you can do to change your life is to change your thoughts.
I know, it’s easier said than done I know. We all have a pattern of how we process our thoughts. For some of us this pattern serves us better than others. But the good news is that you can change it.
How do your thoughts serve you? Can you notice them and choose what to do with them in the moment? Or do you let your thoughts ...
Remember the times when the teacher did roll call in class and the answer after your name was called was "present"? You were fairly present at the moment you heard your name. I don't know about you, I was somewhere else for most of high school.
Today BEing present actually shows up by participating in the moment you are in, completely. Multi-tasking be damned, just doing one thing at a time and not wandering off in body or mind to another task, ...
"I've changed my mind." is a full sentence. Just like "No." we need not say more.
Do we "need" an explanation from others when they say this to us? Why?
Does a decision really need to be explained or defended? Is it really our business?
Could it be about respecting others and the decisions they make for themselves?
Is it just a bad habit that can be amended by no longer asking for an explanation?

Lao Tzu said, “When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.”
So when you take a good long look in the mirror and connect with your truest self, who are you right now?
This can depend on how open you are to outside information what that “who” description will look like.
It could be a physical description with all the added stuff that you have done so far in life.
It could be who you believe you have become ...
It is important to remember that we are energy. Einstein told us that. And energy cannot be created or destroyed, it just changes form. Rhonda Byrne
What does your energy feel like today? Does it feel warm and fuzzy or overwhelmed and difficult, electric and vibrating, exhausted and dragging or calm and relaxed? Let me know how you feel.
How does your energy look? Black and cold, red and raging or brown and boring…white and illuminating or maybe yellow and cozy, how about ...
“There are four questions of value in life...
What is sacred?
Of what is the spirit made?
What is worth living for,
and what is worth dying for?
The answer to each is the same.
(Don Juan deMarco - 1995)
How would you answer each question?
I would love it if you can add them to the comments.
[tweetmeme source=trcoaching] What do you do when your employee acts like the office is their personal domain?
I know that this may sound very familiar to some of you. I will describe the situation that lead up to this coaching event.
Employer #2 John, (not his real name, of course and as there are 2, someone has to be) has walked into the office mid morning after being out of the office for a meeting. The receptionist, we will call Sue, is chatting with ...
