The Space to Breakthrough

I was having lunch with a friend today. He was sharing  how he has been waiting for an ah-ha moment to be able to see his next move. At first, he wanted to do a bunch of things and act in ways to find this next Big Thing. Yet a wise mentor told him that he needed to step out of what he ordinarily does and put himself in situations he had never been in before.

My friend is up for the challenge and he and I both know that breakthroughs need space, a doubt free zone, and the support from others who will love you whether you breakthrough or not.

Warmly,

Leading Success

I was chatting with a friend recently. His company has gone through a merger and the employees of the acquired company is (shall we say) less than cooperative. This man’s frustration is running high because of the lack of action by his new colleagues.

To his credit, my friend realizes that he has been negatively judging his new co-workers and has to stop. Instead, he is looking at places where his preconceived notions can be a pivot point to new and more productive relationships.

Have a great day,

The Best Way to Advance

While is neither rock science or new, the best way to advance is to look inside first and take one small, accessible, and still interesting action that will move you one step close to your goal.

I would say this is “uncommon sense” – so rare and so powerful.

Have a great day,

You Can’t Win – Or Can You?

I have been meeting with people who have a “hidden” dream that they believe is impossible. They never pursue it (even a little), so it’s not clear if the goal is achievable or not. Living in that limboland is unfair to you and to those who want you to succeed.

So be honest with yourself. What do you really want to do? You can experiment a bit before committing full out. Who knows, you could win grandly.

Warmly,

Success Requires Putting a Line in the Sand

I was working with someone today who is very flexible and is open to many options. While on the surface, this could seem brilliant, it’s quite the opposite. In today’s world, individuals want to support others who have a firm idea of where they want to go and the specific value they bring.

So if you are not advancing the way you would like and/or not receiving the support you thought you would – perhaps it’s time to choose what you want to do and where you want to be.

Putting that line in the sand can help you created success and happiness.

Thanks,

Stay the Course

There are times that starting something is way easier than completing it, especially when you face an obstacle. At those moments, launching something new could appeal to you. I suggest that you pause and ask yourself if you are moving on out of convenience or because it’s the right thing to do. Only you will know for sure.

If it’s out of convenience, stay the course. The rewards are great.

Warmly,

What’s Next and After That?

I was meeting with someone today who presented something quite obvious and also deeply profound. He told me that after a crazy 12 months chasing things that he didn’t really want, he sat down and looked at his deep goals and dreams. “Don’t wait,” he said. “The time is now and the world is waiting.”

So true. Take action.

Thanks,
Anita

To Succeed: Give Without Strings Attached

Some people give fully without expecting anything in return. This is a rare breed of individuals. Personally, I believe this takes almost superhuman strength. That said, I believe we all have moments where it’s definitely possible to share value not be waiting for the payback. At those times, opportunities, connections, and more will flow back to you almost effortless.

Practice giving without strings attached and pay attention to the cool things that emerge.

Warmly,
Anita

Believe You Can Succeed

Believe in yourself and the opportunities that can await you. You are only limited by your doubt, resentment, and preconceived notions.

Have a great day,
Anita

Press Forward to Success

One of the trickiest things for me to determine is this: is an obstacle something to pivot from or push through? While there is rarely a definitive answer (except retrospectively), one clear marker is what you feel. If  pivoting is the easy out, that usually means to press forward (even if it’s a little scary).

Ultimately, only you will know the right thing for you. Be honest with yourself and you will make a good decision.

Have a great day,
Anita
