Marquette – December 26, 2013 – As we approach 2014, here are some Nuggets and Wisdom for 2014 that I came upon from mentors I follow and will use with my team to kick off 2014.
Ask yourself, “What is your assignment on this earth?”
Decide one thing you wish to master in life, and master it.
Every problem is simply a wisdom problem.
Find a need and fill it. Find the clients pain and relieve it. Create a solution for them.
As you create wisdom based solutions to your client’s challenges, you will become highly valued.
Ask yourself, “How do I make a difference?”
Relationships matter. Do everything in Love. Love is not rude or mean. Love has courtesy and is patient & kind. Love does not keep a ledger. God puts difficult people in our lives, all around us, that don’t see it our way. And with difficult clients we still ask, “How can I help you. What do you want to get done”
Document your discoveries. Keep a journal this year.
And finally, ask yourself, “Why live life unrewarded?”
Wisdom key #1: “What you tolerate you cannot change.” If you settle for low-paying clients that “Spray & Pray” & spread their dollars everywhere, you will not launch out to find higher-paying ones. How ’bout systematically sharing wisdom with them to help them focus and grow…Or move on!
Wisdom key #2: “What you respect you will attract.” When you respect a client, you will value that person. Furthermore, what you respect will be drawn to you. Therefore, if you want to attain something, be sure to value it. Then you will obtain that thing.
Wisdom key #3: “What you sow, is what you will reap.” You will reap what you have sown. You plant corn, 6 months later you harvest corn. If you genuinely take the time to plant solutions and good ideas on a client, you will reap their respect and a budget from them. God created this “Sow-Time-Harvest” concept long ago. It not only works for tangible things like seed for the garden, but also works in the intangible realm too. Just like the wind, “Good Ideas” are alive, real, with touchable results.
Wisdom key #4: “The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” Practice makes perfect. Develop positive daily routines and watch the progress. If You want to excel in a particular aspect of your life…then establish habits in that area. If you are destined to provide solutions, ask questions & focus on options; read-research-quantify-sort it out-hone it down-write it, & read it aloud so you hear it first.
Wisdom key #5: “Your rewards in life are decided by the kinds of problems you are willing to solve for others.” Figure out what needs to be invented and do it. Think about a client problem around you and uncover them with some solutions. These problems are opportunities for budget with a solution.
Wisdom key #6: “Your pain births your goals.” Your mess always becomes your message. Your crisis creates your solution. Pain births creativity and is motivating. There are No changes without pain. It’s pain that births your desire. So when this happens in your relationships, harness it’s power.
George Foreman was a good example of this. As true for boxing as business: Champions in business are not born. They are made. In an era of bankruptcy and bailouts, two-time Heavyweight Champion of the World and record-busting businessman is what George did. Ask for help on this. Ask your friends to work thru this and pray about it too. Work your pain into something profitable.
Wisdom key #7: “An uncommon seed will always create an uncommon harvest.” A seed could be love, patience, kindness, obedience, faith, money, a new sale idea, a new slug line and a planned campaign, etc. Start planting what you would like to produce.
Wisdom key #8: “Your goals choose your mentor. You get wisdom two ways; thru Mistakes and thru Mentors. Your mentor is a trusted teacher. Your best friend loves you as you are, but your true mentor or coach is never satisfied with where you are. Select a mentor and follow his/her advise.
Wisdom key #9: “Your mentors decide your wisdom. Here’s a big one…God won’t teach your privately what he has stored in your mentor. It necessitates the relationship. Reading and learning on your own is the first half of the story. The rest of the story is Relationships as critical to reaching your goals.
Take some time and Focus on some good mentors that have discovered wisdom. So watch a free U-tube on these guys or download their book, or check Amazon for a used copy, or just sign up for their FREE newsletters…
Some good reads are Art of the Deal by Donald Trump or the 10 things Donald does everyday, By George by George Foreman, Business @ the Speed Of Thought by Bill Gates. Vince Lombardi’s What it takes to be #1, Joel Osteen’s blog, Dr. Mike Murdock, and from “Great Radio Men” like Chris Lytle, Irwin Pollack, Roy H. Williams, TAZ, Chuck Mefford, RAB resources, plus numerous Selling and Success magazines… These all help you focus on wisdom based solutions for local clients where you really shine and make a very good living.
Wisdom key #10: ” wisdom applied”.
Remember, the money is always waiting for you.
Your relationships reveal your self-portrait of your wisdom.
The way you see yourself is what you pursue.
Your self-portrait determines your attitude. We have bad hair days, but we also have days filled with things that go right. So see the greatness in yourself that God has planted there. See yourself as Good-Strong-Powerful-Full of Solutions!
Your attitude decides who pursues you and who wants you. It’s also stunning how we can turn from positive to negative so quickly.
Access creates Favor. Remember, you have to get the right people to like you. Access is one of the greatest gifts we can receive.
The Power of Suggestion, and the Power of Imagination will change the way you see solutions.
As you grow in wisdom, you will be able to change and help with solutions rapidly. Focus on your mentors, & what you keep hearing is what you will eventually believe.
You can trace most any tragedy in life to an ignored instruction. Your success will be decided by who your believe.
Get a picture of what you want to be inside you, and start living that picture.
Create a real difference. Be in the center of your assignment.
