From my weekly business meeting.

Don’t be upset for the result you didn’t get because you didn’t do the work for it. Pretty simple.

Marrying the Right Person Makes You More Successful

We will never always be motivated. We have to learn to be disciplined. I heard in a spiritual talk many years ago that action breeds motivation and motivation moves us to action. They work with each other. That has proven true over the years in almost every aspect of my life, including my home business.

 

We have two ears and one mouth. When we use them in that proportion, our interactions with people are much better quality. Did you know that CEO’s now are hiring specialists to teach what is becoming a lost art — the art of listening.

 

Action Changes Things. ACT!

 

Warm up to open up.

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What makes people happy is doing what you said you would do. Especially what you promise yourself.

From my weekly business meeting earlier this month.

Just like iron sharpens iron, we need to talk with one another. When we express our wants and needs in a respectful way, and listen the same way, it fosters respect and trust among work mates, team mates, friends and family.

John Schneider said in this interview, “We are better together than we are apart.”
This is an encouraging story about how someone can make a fresh start.

There is a universal principal that says we reap what we sow. So, doing the activities everyday that bring the results we want is important, such as changing our eating habits, starting an exercise routine, making calls for our home business, reading a positive spiritual or motivating quote and meditating on it, etc. Start small, with one or two things, but do them consistently, every day. All things starts small. Remember when we put the seed in the ground, water it gently everyday, then be patient for it to sprout.

 

Listen from the heart, not just with our ears. When we do that, we’re not thinking of what we’re going to say while the other person is still talking. It helps us understand each other better and helps our relationships with our customers, team members and work mates, and friends and family members as well.

FAITH TRUST BELIEF

Let’s apply these to our business and personal lives.

Attitude leads to the right behavior. Make your faith bigger than your fears. This applies to our business and personal lives.

Tomorrow is too late, yesterday is over, start where you stand.

I have started over so many times, I know exactly where the starting line is. Just stay in the race. Always know where the starting line is. We’re all going to start over and over. It doesn’t matter how much experience or age we have. There’s always a new adventure and something new to learn. mlr

It’s more important to walk the walk than talk the talk. mlr

Emotional wellness relates to understanding your feelings and coping effectively with stress. It’s important to pay attention to self-care, stress-reduction and the development of inner resources so you can learn and grow from experiences. This is important when you start a new adventure, also, such as a business working from the luxury of your own home. You still have to learn these things.

“Albert grunted. “Do you know what happens to lads who ask too many questions?”
Mort thought for a moment.
“No,” he said eventually, “what?”
There was silence.
Then Albert straightened up and said, “Damned if I know. Probably they get answers, and serve ‘em right.”
― Terry Pratchett, Mort
