THIS IS HARD. THIS IS FUN.

TGIM!!!

Do you enjoy the process?

Do you ever think man this sucks, this is hard?

Do you fail and say son of a buck… I suck at this and pound sand and walk away…  or do you think…

I suck at this NOW, but I WILL GET BETTER.  I will do everything I can to get better.  Not the best, for that may not be possible, but THE BEST THAT I AM CAPABLE.

It’s a mindset.  You can choose which path you take on every challenge.

Working out sucks.  You sweat, you swear and you have 1 million other things you would rather be doing.  But you should do it anyways.  That’s universally agreed.  But so many won’t… so many will suck at it at first and say, but I suck at this… and fail…

but a few.. will do it anyways….

Working towards a goal is a process, embrace the process…AND embrace the goal.

And remember growth is not a lineal chart, you go up, sideways, and sometimes even backwards but over TIME your goal is achieved.

The ingredients:  time, persistence, sweat… that not only adds to the total sum it multiplies it.

No one ever promised you life would be an easy path.  It fact the Bible often tells you… the path will NOT be easy.

Matthew 7:13-14   “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

It’s the combination of enjoying life and the process and the grind… AND the focus of the GOALS you have.

Am I talking about work or life in this TGIM?  The answer is BOTH.

 

THIS IS HARD.  THIS IS FUN.

*********** SPECIAL SALESMAN NOTE *************************

Have you ever worked a 12 or 14 hour day to hit your goals?  Have you recently worked a night, a Sunday morning or started at 5am?   You ever just say, NO WAY IN HELL WILL I LET THIS OPPORTUNITY PASS.  I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES RIGHT NOW.  Then reach out for help and say TEAM, I need your right now, let’s roll…  AND STILL SMILE WHILE YOU DO IT?

Don’t tell me you aren’t hitting your hopes and dreams if you haven’t done the above if you haven’t learned to delegate, to let others help you…and …and …

if you haven’t PUT IN THE TIME… if you are starting at 7 or later and fading out in the afternoon most days (and your team knows if you are or not… they see, they watch… they get it)…

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MINE…AND SAY YOU DON’T KNOW WHY YOU AREN’T HITTING YOUR GOALS… OR WHY YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO HIT YOUR GOALS..

I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT.
