Foundation of team work

f you work hard on your job you can make a LIVING,
but if you work hard on yourself you’ll make a FORTUNE.” — Jim Rohn

Learn to invest more in yourself than in your job.

I always say this to our LO’s at The Mint Capital “You think you joined a mortgage company? You are in an intense personal development program!”

Life is about working on ourselves. We will always bump into friction. Different people, places, things, ideas and concepts. 

We need to go with the flow. Utilize challenges to make us stronger.

Sometimes people struggle with the same issue for many years, but it doesn’t change them for the better. That is because instead of growing from the challenge, they are just complaining. 

Challenges make our brain muscles stronger. To widen our brain capacity to handle more challenges.

It’s okay for a 5 year old to cry over a lost candy. But it’s not okay for a 10 year old to cry over it.

It’s okay for a 10 year old to cry when fighting with a friend. But at 15 years it should not bother as much. He should be able to face challenges because he increased his capacity to deal with life. 

Unfortunately, some people never increase their capacity. They keep on complaining about the same things year after year. 

Complaining is a sign that they didn’t grow in that area!

How are you increasing your capacity?
What work (or life) challenges are helping you grow up?

Trip to Puerto Rico

The thing that I’m most proud about in my career as a Sales Manager.

When I get to work with a team like this.

It’s a real honor to work with people who don’t go for mediocrity.

This week we’re spending with 12 of our LO’s who made it to Leader Circle 2020 in a dream resort.

I love the idea that we came here with KMR, with their spouses, food is the greatest level imaginable, the weather plays along, amazing vibes.

Next year we will have 30!

Gods willing…

Book 5. Day 41: QBQ

Here’s a classic: When will my son open up to me?

Nor allowing them to speak…

Practicing personal accountability

“Never look at the mirror without smiling!” — Notes from the Universe

No one is as big as a fan of you, as you can be of yourself.

Love thy neighbor as yourself. Love thy friend as you love yourself. 

But, the commentary says, no one can love you more than you love yourself. 
You cannot love anybody else more than you love yourself. 

In the 12 steps program, there is a saying: “You guys loved me before I was able to love myself”.

In the everlasting yearning and desire to grow and perfect ourselves, we tend to forget that we are good enough! 
Smart enough! 
People like us!

You are exactly where you need to be now.

Everything is exactly where it has to be exactly at this moment. 

Even with all your imperfection, my friend. Even when you feel you’re at fault, it is also exactly where it has to be. 

It’s all part of the same thing. 

That you should think that everything is your fault and you should beat yourself up for it, so that you should become stronger from it. 

So you can work it out on your own. 

And then you own it.

If there is no pain, there will be no gain. 

According to the effort, so is the reward.

Have a great day ahead!

When will other walk their talk?

The easiest thing to spot is gaps of integrity in others. 

The definition of integrity is this: Being what I say I am by acting in accordance with my words. —#QBQ

In the role of a parent, a friend, a manager or an employee, we all have our weaknesses that we should correct in accordance with integrity.

Search within yourself, my friend, what are your values? 

Are you living with integrity?

How can you become better than yesterday?

A friend shared a deep thought by Dan Sullivan.

Confidence is what you have, because you have done it. You cannot have confidence in something you haven’t done. You CAN have courage to try it. 

Taking that first step takes courage. 

Call upon your inner energy to gather the courage.

We were all created with inner strength.

We might have faults, but ultimately we have a little of everything in ourselves. 

Gather the courage. 

But, don’t get disCOURAGEd!

With integrity.

Make it a great day ahead!

Serenity Prayer

he toughest part of business is dealing with people.

The easiest part of business is… dealing with people!

The joys and pleasure of business is dealing and interacting with humans.
(beautiful thought by Darren Hardy.)

Dealing with people is not always easy. 

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know – it’s me!” — CODA twist on the Serenity Prayer

Remember that we cannot change other people. 
We can only change ourselves. 
We can only change our reaction and perception of other people. QBQ

It takes a lot of inner work.

With time we slowly conquer our inner demons. One level at a time.

Even when we are mostly happy in many areas, there might be that one little area that still trips us up badly.

The paradox of life.

Humans are complicated. WE are complicated.

Constantly working. Conquering level by level.

Ups and downs.

Two steps forward. One step back.

THAT is work, my friend. It never ends. Until the last breath. 

“Just because I know of it – does not free me from it!” — Lou Landau

The IT being whatever you’re dealing with at the time, your shadow, demons, or “the minds infinite capacity for self-deception”.
