5 Powerful Morning Habits to Help You Become More Successful

November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

Are you a morning person? Many people enjoy getting up at the sunrise and having a cup of coffee while they browse the web and others prefer to sleep in as long as possible but the most successful people in the world embrace the mornings and in fact there are certain habits that the successful people all seem to share. Here are five powerful habits that will help you become more successful.

1. Get up Early: have you heard the adage early to bed, early to rise? The rest of it is that it makes a man (or woman) healthy, wealthy and wise but in this case it really does make you more successful. If you read about the most successful entrepreneurs out there, you will notice that they get up very early and start their day – and they usually get quite a bit accomplished in the morning as well.
2. Start with Exercise: studies have shown that people who exercise in the morning are5-morning-habits much better equipped to handle the day. You’ll be able to use your brain better, you’ll have more energy and you will simply be better at all of the tasks that you attempt after a half hour or so of exercise. This doesn’t have to be extremely strenuous; it could just be a jog through the park or a bike ride. The important thing is that you exercise.
3. Eat a Good Breakfast: breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you probably know that because experts have been saying it for decades. If you aren’t a breakfast person, you’re not alone. There are lots of people out there who prefer not to eat breakfast and just wait until lunch rolls around. But eating breakfast could help you be more productive and if you try it once you might find that you really enjoy the results.
4. Do the Hardest Thing First: when you get started in the morning don’t go with the easy tasks first. Tackle the hardest project that you have; the one that you’re dreading above all of the others. Once you get that one out of the way, you’ll find that the other projects are easy to accomplish and your day will go much smoother.
5. Prepare the Previous Day: the night before, try to prepare as much as you can so that you’re ready to sit down and get to work as soon as morning comes.

3 Powerful Ways to Recognize an Opportunity

November 8, 2016 Leave a comment

opportunity-knocks

If you want to be a successful entrepreneur one of the things that you’re going to have to do is be able to recognize opportunity when it knocks. An opportunity to fill a much needed gap in the market or to change your business to take advantage of a trend could mean the difference between a little bit of success and a huge amount. But you must know what these opportunities look like so that you can grab them when you see them. Here are three ways to recognize an opportunity.

1.  It Might Not Be Perfect

One of the earmarks of a good opportunity is that it doesn’t sound too good to be true. A true opportunity that has great potential isn’t going to be perfect when you encounter it. You’re going to have to do the work to make it into a successful venture. However, one thing that should have is potential. If you can see it becoming a great idea in the future than it might just be the opportunity that you been looking for but just be sure that just because an idea is imperfect that you don’t discard it completely.

2.  It Is Built on Previous Failures

The best ideas are the ones that have evolved over time because they have been honed through past failures. If an idea has been through the furnace of discovery, there is a much greater chance of it working when you decide to implement it. In other words, you might want to give an idea time to fail a few times before you decide to run with it yourself, because otherwise, you’ll be making all of those mistakes yourself and that won’t result in the grand opportunity the you’re envisioning.

3.  It Might Not Be What It Was Intended to Be Used for Originally

Some of the best ideas that have ever been thought of were completely different takes on what a product or service was originally intended for. The idea might’ve been a failure as it was intended but it sparked an entire new thought process and brand-new applications. These accidental inventions ended up being something completely different because someone had the ability to see past the original application. For example, both the slinky and silly putty toys were intended for industrial application. However, they failed as intended and instead became some of the most popular toys ever invented.

Day 4 Six Reason for Setting Goals 2

 6 key reasons why setting goals is so important (part 2)

When you set a goal for yourself, you determine whether or not you reach it. You tell yourself you’re going to do it, so you answer to yourself if you don’t. It’s up to you to make the action happen.

Here are the last three (3) key reasons why setting goals is so important:

Makes you accountable to yourself. When you set a goal for yourself, you determine whether or not you reach it.

Help you reach your potential. How will you ever know what you can do in life if you don’t try. Not having goals will keep you from growing.

Live life to the fullest. Having goals and reaching them helps you live a much happier life. Instead of dreaming, you can actually be doing it.

Catch The Ball

October 30, 2015 2 comments

Catch The Ball

One of the key ingredients for success can be summed up with one simple word—Focus! On what? That’s easy—one thing at a time. You see, in this fast-paced, “multitask” society we live in, it seems we are judged by how many different things we can do all at one time; yet in reality, we can only do one thing well at any given time.

Imagine being on your computer playing music, checking emails, working on a Word document, Excel worksheet, and PowerPoint presentation, and looking up stuff on the Internet. Your system might move pretty slowly. Right? Guess what? The same applies to us. We can do things faster and better, if we focus on only one thing at a time.

To illustrate this point even more, I want to share the following example with you.

It’s 4th down, 12 seconds remain on the clock, and your team is down by 3 points. You are the wide receiver in the biggest football game of your life, and you are called upon to win the game for the home crowd. You line up to begin the final play. The ball is snapped and you run down field.

As the ball is heaved down field in your direction, you feel the anticipation of the event which is about to unfold. You envision it all in your head, step-by-step, move-by-move. You know exactly what is going to happen.

You catch the ball. You tuck it in close with the outside arm to keep from fumbling. You twist left and then right, throwing the defenders off guard. As more people run your way, you spin to the side, and dodge one close call after another, while jumping over the opponents like they are nothing more than simple obstacles.

You soar into the end zone. The gun explodes, ending the game. Your team is victorious. Your teammates rush the field and hoist you up on their shoulders. The crowd goes wild, chanting your name in unison.

Later that night, you are the talk of the town. Everyone wants to have a moment of your time to tell you “great job!” or shake your hand or pat you on the back. This is your time to shine! All the years of training and hard work have paid off. All eyes are on you. You are the man of the hour. Then BAM!

Your mind brings you back to the moment. You were lost in your imagination. You lost focus and redirected your thoughts and energy. The pass is drawing near. You juggle the ball as you start to run for the goal. The ball is never securely in your hands. The ball slides through your hands to the ground. The crowd goes silent in disbelief.

The only thing you hear is a voice inside repeating one of the coach’s basic lessons, “Before you can do anything else, you first need to catch the ball. Until you do that, everything else is pointless.”

Now, let me ask you—did you catch the ball? How many things are you juggling in your life?

Learn to focus on one thing, master it well, and then move on to another. Focus may be the missing ingredient in your recipe for success.

Diamond Coaching Success Training

When it comes to starting and running a coaching program you definitely have lots of choices and options. This includes the topic of the coaching program itself, and the way it is run or delivered.

One On One Coaching – Many coaches like to offer personalized one on one coaching programs. With this type of program you would cater your offer around the person’s needs and goals. Programs of this type are often more expensive than other coaching programs.

Group Coaching – as the name implies this is done in a group setting. Group coaching can be done using tools such as Skype, Google Hangouts, video conferencing, live streaming services or by using a webinar software. All lessons are typically delivered online and are recorded. This way if anyone misses a lesson they can listen to the recordings.

Next let’s take a look at the types of coaching that can be offered. You could practically offer a coaching program for almost anything these days. Some of the most popular programs are those for life coaches, business coaches, sports coaches, career coaches, performance coaches and team coaches.

These coaches would cover different fields and industries. Each coach would be specialized in this particular field. Another popular coaching area is that of the online marketing coach. Many people today want to learn how to make money online, and what better way to do this than by hiring a coach?

As you can see the possibilities for what type of coaching program you could offer is huge. Of course, you want to coach in an area that you feel you can demonstrate your expertise in.

Your first step in becoming a coach is to first learn what it entails to be a good coach. Then define an area that you want to specialize in. Once you have done that, then you want to outline a course or program for your coaching offer. Once this is in place you can start looking for your very first coaching clients.

Coaching can be an extremely rewarding experience. Always remember that the person taking your coaching is looking for guidance and a path to success. If you can deliver these things you can earn a good reputation as a coach in your field.
