One thing – with luck, with persistence, and done well can change everything. So keep working, keep doing. The problem is, you will not know what that 1 thing is. So keep going.
Taking action in spite of anxiety is courage.
Taking action in the face of fear is courage.
Taking action while drowning in sorrow is courage.
Taking action even when hurting is courage.
Being productive is not about time management, it is only about attention management. What you focus on happens.
When you are confident you trust and believe in your ability. When you have high self-esteem you know your true worth, your value. They are both needed to be able to maximize your potential. Self-esteem and self-confidence go hand-in-hand. Your worth is not tied to your achievements, it is tied to something much bigger, the universal truth that we are all important, that we all have value and that we all matter. The more people can feel and understand their worth, the more courage they will have. With courage, you can fulfill your potential.
The only way to find meaning is to share yourself with others. You can create meaning by loving others.
I am thankful for my courageous and beautiful Emilie, who always helps me create meaning. Happy Birthday.
Our days become our weeks, months, and our years. Our years become our life. How we structure our day is how we structure our life. We will always be supported by and fill the structure we create.
In sales, selling value is key. It means being curious enough to understand your client and knowing what will drive growth for them. Value is not functionality. Value is not benefits. Value is defined by the client. Helping them achieve their purpose is the value they perceive.
Discipline is not just having a routine. Routines are easy to follow when everything is going perfectly. Discipline means sticking to your values and principles when you are thrown out of your game when the situation is unfamiliar, and your normal life is torn apart. Discipline is the strength to act in the face of adversity. Routines are great when life is simple – when it is not – you need discipline.
Life isn’t fair. But you can be a fair person. We can always treat others fairly. That doesn’t mean you treat everyone the same. That wouldn’t be fair. You treat people as individuals since they are unique and they must be valued uniquely. By seeing others as people you can treat them the way they need to be treated, as unique people with needs and wants as valid as your own.
No one knows exactly what life will bring. That is why we prepare, we study, we train, we serve. Experience and determination coupled with power from the higher source helps us get through all situations.
