One Minute Motivator # 290

Refuse to wait around.

Losers sit and wait for inspiration; winners get up and go to work.

You must challenge yourself to take action sooner rather than later. The minute you start taking action you begin getting valuable feedback that ultimately helps you refine your original idea. That way you can move forward with a more informed and educated outlook. Things will never be perfect, so don’t waste time waiting for it.

What can you get started on right now?

You have not been sent here in a test or trial.

Everything counts.

What you do with your life matters. It matters to you, it matters to others, it matters to the whole world and what comes after. You need to take life seriously and step up to your responsibilities.

Your life is not a drill, make something meaningful happen today.

You don’t enter a contest to learn.

Learning should be done in between contests, not during them.

Many people don’t pay attention to their business, game, etc. until they are in real test of their skills such as a contest or tournament. Prior to that, they just go through the motions. Then when the big day comes they discover they don’t have what it takes in some area. This discovery should have been made in practice and learning sessions. You need to get your skills up to par before they are needed. Game day is too late.

What skills do you need to improve now?

What you are feeling now is what you were thinking before.

Your current feelings are based on your previous thoughts, be they good or bad.

The enjoyable place in your mind is temporary, or the uncomfortable place in your mind may be standing is temporary. Your now reality is only a temporary, momentary culmination of what you’ve been thinking about. What you think about translates into your reality

What’ll you have bud, the choice is yours?

Ask yourself “Is this The Best I Can Do?”

Settle for nothing less than your best when it comes to your key goals.

You know I am not a big fan of absolutely killing yourself to get the very best effort on things. Most of the time that last little bit of results takes a disproportionate amount of effort to achieve. However when it comes to the goals that are going to make or break you, only your best will do. So ask yourself if a project merits you best and if so, if you are in fact giving it your best.

Is it time to give something your best effort?

Why you are miserable even if you achieved 98% of your goal.

The answer is that you are a perfectionist and you set yourself up for failure.

I am all for total success, but most of the time it is just not worth it, that extra few points exacts a terrible cost. And by focusing on only total success you miss the benefits of a bit of failure. You don’t take the opportunity to learn and grow from failure and mistakes; you just dwell on your perceived failure.

Lower your sights just a bit and see what you learn.

Change want to have to if you want success.

There are tons of things you want, but only a limited number of things you have to. Guess which things get done.

Wanting to do something doesn’t carry the weight of having to do something. And it shows in the results you get. There are seven days in a week and someday is not one of them. Wanting puts things in the someday category and that is the kiss of death. If you want to accomplish a goal find a way to make it a must do and it will happen.

Is today a someday or a must day?

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.

Your success in any endeavor is forever linked directly to your heart, your will, and your steadfast commitment to goals.

You cannot ever let fatigue make you a coward, nor can you ever expect to win without struggling, without suffering, without sacrificing…as these are all essential elements of the DNA of winning. The relentless attitude is the winning attitude and the remarkable thing about life is that we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. You cannot change your past. You cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. You cannot change the inevitable. The only thing you can do is to play on the one string you have, and that is your attitude

So what is it: you can choose to be relentless, or you can choose to roll over and surrender to weakness.

Control the conversation for a better outcome.

Generally you have an idea how you would like a conversation to go. Here is how to do it.

If you want a conversation to stay positive, make sure you speak first and set a positive tone, plus add positive body language to support it. In most cases the person you are talking to will follow your lead as to the tone of the conversation. This works on sales calls as well as dealing with ‘grumpy” friends.

Get ready for your next conversation.

Why people not as smart as you do better than you.

It happens because those people focus on their wins instead of their loses.

Successful people are happier than non-successful people but it is because they don’t wait to win in order to be happy. They focus on the good in every outcome. Research shows, that those who are happiest are the most successful. When you are happy, success comes easier. You are more creative and more resilient. You think bigger, are more hopeful and optimistic. These are the keys to success.

What just happened that you could find the good in?
