I got a call last Friday from Chris Barany out of the PRO office and he said that I had been chosen to be January’s spotlight member of the month. It was definitely a surprise.
You see, when you do the right things, the right things happen and you get exposure. Most people are afraid to put themselves out there and those are the same people who constantly complain about how broke they are and how their life stinks. Yet, they are unwilling to do anything about it.
It’s when you truly decide that you want change and your willing to put your work ethic where your mouth and mind go, you will start to see change and success in your life.
Fear and doubt are what stop most people.
Fear that it won’t work for them.
Fear that they don’t have enough money.
Fear that the money they do have will be gone.
Fear of what other people will think of them.
All of these “FALSE” thoughts are killing you and your future.
They will take you out if you let them.
Leaders, however are different.
They don’t give a rip what others think.
They do what most people are not willing to do for a long enough time to succeed. The game of life is played one moment at a time and the difference between those who succeed and those who don’t are the little things that they do every moment, hour, day, week and month.
Everything adds up and over the course of time is compounded.
Compounded effort is the bomb that will explode your results in 2012 and beyond.
Getting recognized is nice, however one thing I learned is never to let it get to your head. It only means that your level of responsibility has gone up. It means that the gauntlet has been laid down and it’s time for you to take it to the next level.
I never get comfortable where I am, in fact, I want to be uncomfortable.
When I get comfy, here is what happens.
I stop producing, start kicking back and I get lazy. Guess what happens next. Well, it is the reverse of a country song played backwards. Everything starts slipping away and negative momentum kicks in.
NO THANK YOU!
I prefer to do the little things every day and get where I want to go over time. Sooner then later of course.
How about you?
Have you even thought about how your doing things at this point in your life to get where you want to go? Do you have the right vehicle to get you there? Do you even have a vehicle?
The bottom line is taking responsibility for where you are up until this point and flipping the switch.
Your probably like, “Huh? Flip the switch?”
Yep, that’s what happens when people draw the line in the sand and say, “I am sick and tired of being sick and tired,” and they flip the switch of change on.
Wishing you the best in 2012 and beyond.
