Ever woken up wanting more?

I tell you what: I certainly have. I’ve woken up feeling lots of things: some of them fantastic and some of them not so fantastic. What I know now that I didn’t know then was that I actually get to choose what I get most of the time.

There is a sense we get when we’re really listening to that inner voice that tells us when we’re playing small. That’s the voice that says: “you are just as skilled as he/she is: step forward”….It’s the knowledge that if there is someone somewhere in the world that has done what you’re dreaming of doing, it is absolutely possible for you too.

Is this your year? I get the sense that 2015 is set to be a biggie for a lot of us. There seems to be a real sense of optimism out there in the business world and the world in general that it is okay to strive for more, to grow, to stretch and take a risk. So what are you going to achieve this year?

Humour me for a moment and imagine that it’s January 2016. You’re looking back on 2015: what have your greatest achievements been?

Well, guess what? It’s already 2015, so get cracking with actions that will not only pull you closer to your goal but pull your goal closer to you. That happens when you have:

Clear intentions: writing out what you want to achieve in the present tense as if they’ve occurred being as specific as you can about the results, the way you feel now that you’ve achieved it and what it means for your life

Daily rituals that get you in a peak state in order to take action, visualize your intentions and continue to grow

Surround yourself with positive, like minded people knowing that you are the average of the ones you hang out with the most

Leverage: determine where it will bring you most benefit and find a way of creating it

Time to create

 

You may want to check out some workshops, retreats or coaching (or all of these things)…..

 

It’s time.

Support one another

It’s been tough enough over the last 20 months: we don’t need to make others bad and wrong in order to move forward.  It’s low level, distracting and unhelpful.   Instead, let’s see how we can unify behind one another to lift each other’s energy, emotion and...

The state of sales leadership

We’re witnessing and living through a time we’ve not experienced before.    A phase of constant uncertainty about the future – even with “re-opening pathways out of lockdown”.  In Victoria, we were told our 4 month lockdown in 2020 was to end all lockdowns...only...

Are you someone who just breathes in?

When I first heard someone say this, I loved it because it says it all!    Are you someone who simply sucks the air in, or are you someone who contributes? I’ve written a lot lately about the obvious difficulties we’re experiencing, selling remotely in a market...

I’m not a salesperson – why this isn’t helping

It’s getting tired actually.    I mean, how deluded are we when we’re responsible for driving any of the following and not join the dots to selling: Memberships Clients Revenue Sales Donations Corporate partners Retention Services Subscriptions Participants...

Is it time to readjust your sales force?

With changes to markets, and so much disruption going on, it is inevitable that companies are looking to the levers they can utilise to maximise revenue, and reduce costs so they can respond well now and place themselves in a stronger position going forward.  ...

The antidote to uncertainty

It’s everywhere…and for good reason.  Uncertainty.  What will the future be like?  How will it impact our business/our team/our customers/me?  What do I need to do to be ready for it?  What do I need to do today? When we don’t have certainty we create it for...

Sales Teams Need Strong Leaders

In workplaces, schools, businesses, politics, communities we look to leaders for strength, truth, hope and a clear path forward.    This couldn’t be more important for businesses everywhere than it is right now.  The right leadership will rally teams together in...

Getting Back Up

How many times can a person be struck down before they just can’t bring themselves to get back up?  We each have a breaking point.    There are superhumans who have a well of inner resourcefulness they draw upon that keeps them internally strong when all about...

Truth

  We know when we hear it.  We sure know when we don’t.  Conveying it without brutality however, is a skill worth cultivating. It’s not acceptable to simply vomit truth bombs on others without any regard for that person’s feelings, experiences or context, and...

Courage

Have you ever woken up at 2am in a sweat?  Filled with anxiety and pacing the floor?  Have you walked around in your pjs in the wee small hours, looking into the fridge, not really knowing why, but hoping the answer will jump out yet at the same time, knowing it...
