“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
Question: How can I achieve my dreams?
Answer: By doing whatever it takes!
Unfortunately, that is not what most people do!
People usually start out doing one thing to get to their dream.
Then, when that doesn’t work, they give up.
Here’s the thing.
You don’t give up the dream.
You just have to try 39395950203 different ways to achieve it.
“Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right’.
Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools
you may have at your command,
and better tools will be found as you go along.” / George Herbert
If you continually do the same thing.
Day in and day out.
You will most likely keep getting the same results.
If you are looking for different results.
You need to do something different!
And, that theory applies to everything in your life.
What can you do today.
To get you one stop closer to where you want to be?
Looking for love (in all the wrong places)?
Only you always go for the same type.
And it gets you nowhere.
And you wonder why?
Maybe it’s time to go for a new type?
Always visit the same dating sites?
How about trying a new one?
There are a million of them these days.
Personally, I have changed my type many times over these past few years.
Still haven’t found love yet.
But I’ve met some interesting people along the way!
Looking for a new job?
And not having much luck?
Why not try a whole new approach?
Just start applying to any job that sounds like it might be for you!
Too many look at a job description.
Oh, I don’t have all the requirements?
Don’t make that decision!
You never know.
Maybe the recruiter is impressed with your resume.
And thinks you might be a good candidate.
Even if you don’t have all the requirements!
Thinking outside the box!
Do you have an idea for a business?
Only you keep saying to yourself.
I don’t know how to start?
Here’s my advice.
With whatever you have.
With, whatever you got!
The thing is this.
Whenever we have an issue or problem in our lives.
Many revert to the same way of thinking.
And the same way of doing.
Then expect different results.
You need to rewire your brain.
Start thinking different.
That is key!
In order to get better results.
You need to think better!
Really, out-of-the-box kind of thinking!
Even though I hate that reference.
This is how you grow.👈👈👈
How you come out of your comfort zone.
I know, scary stuff.
That’s how you become unstoppable!
That’s the stuff winners are made of!
“If you do what you’ve always done,
you will always get what you’ve always got.
To get what you never had, you must do what you never did.”
You need to come out of your comfort zone!
It is all part of the process.
For me personally.
It has meant doing many “uncomfortable” things.
Like starting my YouTube Channel.
And then recently.
I started on TikTok.
Extremely uncomfortable for me.
But, I did it anyway.
Because, I know doing both.
Will bring me closer to where I want to be.
It was the next step.
In the BIG plan.
Nothing happens overnight.
It’s all the baby steps you take!
That makes you…
Get over your fears.
Over the past eight years.
I have given many speeches.
And each one of them.
Has made me extremely uncomfortable.
Yet, I get a tremendous rush when I am doing them.
What helped me you ask?
How to win friends and influence people.
I took a class.
It literally changed my life.
I just knew.
This is the thing I want to be doing.
Not sitting a desk.
Shuffling papers all day long.
Public Speaking didn’t seem scary after that class.
Like I said, I’ve given quite a few speeches since I started my business.
And, I’ve been interviewed numerous times on the radio and for podcasts.
I’m like a pro now.
You can’t become a pro.
If you don’t start.
That’s where so many people get it wrong.
You have to start.
When I first started my business.
Everyone told me I had to start Networking.
I had never been to a networking event in my life.
There was no need.
I worked in Corporate America.
But I started.
And, most of the time, I went by myself.
Now, ask me if I was out of my comfort zone?
I would literally sit in my car in the parking lot.
And convince myself to go in.
Prior to having my own business.
I rarely went anywhere by myself!
Life has changed quickly.
If there is an event I want to attend.
I don’t think about it.
I just go.
And, not two years after I started networking.
People started paying me to network for them!
How crazy is that?
Now, if anyone had told me that was going to happen.
I would have told them they were crazy.
STEP OUT of your comfort zone.
And watch you become.
I always look at networking as somewhat of an adventure.
You never know who you are going to meet?
Never know what’s going to happen.
I have met some pretty fabulous people over the years.
Folks I never would have met had I not dared venture out!
So, if you have never gone to a networking event.
I highly encourage you to do so!
And you too will be.
Unstoppable! NineFrogs Daily “QUOTE OF THE DAY!”:
DON’T STOP BELIEVING in yourself!
And your abilities.
We are so quick to tell ourselves.
‘We can’t do this.
When it actuality.
We usually can.
You just have to look at it from a different angle.
So. next time.
You try to do something,
Instead of going left, go right.
Instead of doing what you usually do.
Try somewhere different.
I have become the handy-man at our house.
And I amaze myself every time I fix something!
If you had asked me ten years that I’d be doing that.
I would have said you were crazy.
That’s what I’m talking about!
Insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” / Albert Einstein
Think about that.
You do the same thing day after day.
And then wonder why things aren’t getting better in your life?
YOU have to be willing to take chances to get the life you deserve!
