Time To Recalibrate?
Received a great email from marketing legend mr. kyle wilson over the weekend... Bill, As you're recharging the batteries this weekend, make sure and set aside some time to calibrate your strategic plan for each area of your life, including your career/business (this one activity is a consistent habit I've found among top producers). I wrote a short blog post Thursday that addresses a few core areas that can have the greatest impact on your short and long term success. What Can You Control? Posted on July 18, 2012 by Kyle What Can You Control? There is a consistent theme I’ve observed over the years from elite performers, whether it was Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Darren Hardy or Harvey Mackay. When faced with difficulties, hardships, challenges and all-around bad news or circumstances, these high achievers have simply focused on what they could control. When your teenagers aren’t following your great advice… When your spouse or loved ones are going through challenges you wished you could “fix”… When your employer, employees and/or co-workers create unwanted or needed problems you have to clean-up… When unexpected health challenges or sports injuries present themselves… Or when things break… at the worst times… What can you control? For some strange reason, when crisis (or near crisis) events happen, we humans tend to want to control all the things we have no control over versus realizing the best and most productive thing we can do is to let go of what we can’t control and embrace and CONTROL what we really can control. Jim Rohn said you can’t control the economy, the weather or the universe for that matter but you can control yourself. Ater all, that is one thing that matters most; especially how we respond when life throws us curve balls.
