From Good to Great

October 31, 2011

That should sound familiar. It is now the name of my workshop focused on Goals, Plans, Success. Guess I figured it’s time for a new name. We’ll test and measure it and see how the response goes.
Speaking of Success, it seems that sometimes we make having success, or being successful a little too difficult. First, success is defined by you. Second, change your direction and you will probably get to the destination you want. Third, become a better you. Work on yourself. This numbering scheme can go on for a while, but this is a good start.

Self-Mentoring for Success

October 17, 2011

You have the clarity on what you want. You’ve made a committment to take Action and written it down. But, some things aren’t going as you wish they would. Now what? Here’s how Jim Rohn puts it:

“Of all the things that can have an effect on your future, I believe personal
growth is the greatest. We can talk about sales growth, profit growth, asset
growth, but all of this probably will not happen without personal growth. It’s
really the open door to it all. In fact I’d like to have you memorize a most
important phrase. Here it is, “The major key to your better future is YOU.”

That’s it, there it is. Work harder on yourself than you do on your job. I’ve seen it happen too many times where the decision to change yourself, educate yourself, read more, etc., has made a huge change for lives and businesses. Improve your skill, learn another one, but don’t sit still.

Self Mentor your way to Success

We reach that point where it’s time to move forward. Business hasn’t been great, you’re trying to make sales happen, no one is coming to the rescue. So, ‘if it’s going to be then it’s up to me.’ We find a certain level of self-satisfaction once the decision point is reached and we take Action. Ok, now what? Here are two things you can do to help yourself. First, get absolute clarity on what you want. Spend time defining them. Write them down. When we want something the more definition and clarity we can give it, the faster we achieve it. No fairy dust here. Second, plant the things you want into your subconscious mind. Actively do it twice daily. Our subconscious never sleeps. So let it work for you and make your wishes and dreams come true faster.

Self-Mentoring: Get the results you want

October 2, 2011

“People change when the pain not to change exceeds the pain to change”.

In my infantry platoon in 1972 was a soldier who thought rejection of authority was him mission in life. Let’s just say that he lost that battle. I rotated to another assignment after one year. Several months later a soldier passed me on the sidewalk, gave a crisp salute and called me by name. It was that soldier. I did not recognize him. He had a haircut, uniform was starched and he had been promoted.

We talked for a few minutes. He told me he had turned over a new leaf, he was happy  and he remembered what I had tried to teach him. He thanked me. He had decided to change.

When you make the decision to change and take Action you’ll get everything you have ever wanted.

The  Self-Mentoring workshop gives you the tools. We’ll provide information to you if you’ll contact us.   edgideon@actioncoach.com
