025 Live On Purpose

Had breakfast with my buddy Jon this morning. Sorta goal update and revival. We got off on a tangent about “the meaning of life,” living your purpose, and other such things. 025 Live On Purpose [ 6:13 ] Play Now | Play in Popup | Download Living your purpose can be difficult because you may spend your lifetime searching for YOUR purpose – if there’s even such a thing to be found. However, you can live ON purpose right now. Today. This second. Here were some thoughts that came up. Maybe they will strike a chord with you and be helpful to your achievement regardless of you goal. Live ON Purpose. Stop being an accident waiting to happen. I am a firm believer that you should be able to lay down at night and know you added value to the world. This might seem silly, but the tip I left the waitress this morning for example. She’s better off. I left a tip on purpose. A tip she would be grateful for. A tip that lets me rest easy tonight for having made another’s life a little bit better. You don’t have to be Mother Teresa to live a meaningful life. You only have to be intentional with the lives around you. Plan On Purpose. Scheduling your week is not just so the calendar is full. Have purpose associated with every activity/task. “Walk for an hour” is much different than “Walk for an hour, burn 400 calories, and work toward becoming a machine so I can play for hours with my kids without collapsing.” One of those is a...

Decide

Do you really want to change your world? Do you want better friendships? A better relationship with the Lord? A greater heart for service? A happier home life? Decide. 029 Decide [ 5:20 ] Play Now | Play in Popup | Download Write it down. “Here’s what I want to change…” Wanting to change and wishing to change are two different things. If you want things to change, but you’re not willing to put in the work, then you’re wishing. If you decide you want change, but you’re not willing to pay the price, then you’re dreaming. Deciding is not singular. It’s not a one-time event. It’s not a solitary thought. Deciding includes thinking, planning, plodding and producing. It’s not linear. There will be distractions, diversions and derailments. But if you’ve truly made the decision, you keep going. You keep pushing. You keep paying. You keep praying. Just because you’re making a “good” decision doesn’t mean it will be simple or easy. Just because you want to grow as person and impact your world doesn’t mean you won’t get damaged along the way. For some reason we tend to think that setting good goals will somehow protect us from the battle. Since we’re doing the “right thing” then everything should just fall into place. (Here’s some ammonia to sniff. Breathe deep. Wake up!) In fact, often the opposite is true. Let’s say you decide to be a better mom. You read books, attend seminars, follow advice and become a living sacrifice… then what happens? Everyone takes you for granted! Our decision for change cannot be based on our reception...

lavandería

Across the street from my rental in Mexico is a lavandería. They… 1. Weight your clothes and charge per pound. 2. Wash and dry your clothes. 3. Put your clothes in a plastic bag. Simple. Because it’s hot and our team is working in the morning, spending time with the angels in the afternoon, and eating out at night – it’s easy to go through 3 set of clothes a day. I took in 4 days worth to the laundry. Grand total… $2.30. I was not upset. Here’s the operation… Simple. Weigh. Wash. Dry. But what do WE do? If we decide to workout we buy the best equipment. Best workout clothes. We might research the best shoes for days. If we decide to work from home we buy a nice desk. Upgrade our laptop. Print enough business cards for the next 3 centuries. We confuse preparing for action with results. We feel that getting ultimately prepared always has to come first. Hey, you’ll lose more weight walking in loafers than researching shoes. You’ll make more money with your sad website than a perfect website you never get up. I love my little lavandería. No fancy equipment. Machines that do the job. People who love to serve. Sometimes that’s all you need. Success is NOT an Accident!...

Do you know what time it is?

6:04 am So far today… Recorded a podcast, edited, uploaded, posted. Created a new lead page Answered coaching questions Created mp4 downloads of Core4 Shared an article with Club Level on Facebook Listened to a chapter of 10X by Grant Cardone Worked out. 6:06 am Although I write and teach about productivity and goal setting, the fact remains that without discipline none of the above would happen. Most people in the “working world” are still asleep. They “don’t have time” to start or work on an outside business. They don’t have time to work on their body. They don’t have time to _________. Just fill in the blank. If you get up a little bit early and knock out some tasks, you are lapping the field. If you work while others sleep, you get so far ahead they can’t catch you. However, you can have the best plan, the best list to accomplish, and even the best intentions, but without self-discipline none of those will happen if they are not obligations. 6:09 am Productivity does not exist without discipline. Laying in bed wondering if you should get up and work or workout or whatever is a waste of time. It’s undisciplined and accomplishes nothing. Look at your clock. Do you know what time it is? It’s… NOW. Whatever you should be doing, do it NOW.    ...

Unmotivated

“I’m unmotivated.” Ever felt unmotivated? You just didn’t “feel” like doing X? No one is exempt. The difference between those who achieve and those who merely dream is doing what you should do, when you should do it, whether you want to or not. Lack of motivation comes from lack of motive. Lack of reason. Lack of why this must be done. Lack of motivation comes from lack of consequence. Lack of penalty. Lack of pain if you don’t. Lack of motivation comes from lack of certainty. Lack of assurance. Lack of knowing the result. Lack of motivation comes from lack of drive. Lack of push. Lack of acceleration toward the goal. Watch this video called “Unstoppable” for some motivation to get you moving and gaining momentum.
