Category: GRIT For Success
Back in the days of Zig Ziglar, Earl Nightingale, and Dale Carnegie, there was a special wisdom, and a common element in their dynamic formulas for success. They always seemed to focus on people and relationships as being the make or break factor for having a successful career, business, and life. Not only how we see people, but how we treat people, and serve people, on our journey to achievement. Today, I share a true story, and the amazing results of what can happen, when we care about and take the time to notice people.
How do you react when someone says… I dare you! Usually, when someone throws a challenge our way, it sparks something inside of us, right? Challenges can come in every imaginable form. But the most daring challenges we will ever face, may be the ones we create within ourselves.
What do extreme selfies and extreme success have in common? They both rise out of brave action. But it’s where they ultimately lead that makes them so profoundly different.
It’s fascinating that some people can find powerful courage to climb up on towers or hang off of steep mountain ledges. They press past fear, stare danger straight in the face, and test the limits of common sense. Somewhere deep down, they find the motivation and drive to pull off incredibly DARING things, with one goal in mind… to get the perfect SELFIE!
September ushered in the first days of Autumn, and we welcome the colorful season of pumpkins, hot cider, and warm sweaters! But even more, there’s just something special about the month it all begins, in September.
Why does September always seem to be a month of beginnings or endings that can impact us so powerfully? It can shift our circumstances, the people around us, and the things we care about the most. Beyond the shorter days, crisper air, and pumpkin spice lattes, September often demands an extra measure of focus and strength. Not only is it a month that kicks off a season of change, but a season that almost always changes us.
Fall season can set off emotional triggers that can deplete us, or make us stronger! There has never been a better time to focus on coming out of September, STRONG!
