Are You Making Big Commitments?

If something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.  

One of the nice things about the New Year is that it’s a great way to evaluate yourself and keep score. Take a moment to think about where you were this time last year. Are you in the same place? Was there forward movement or backward movement? Are you on track to reach your goals for next year? Do you have goals for 2018? Andrew asked all of these questions last week in Are You Ready for Success in 2018, but now let’s dig deeper. 

Making big commitments can be scary. Wherever you have great opportunities you will find struggles. New goals aren’t always comfortable. They stretch us and make us better people. It’s time to get out of our comfort zones, to grow, and to become better people in the process.  

Is there something that has been on your heart for awhile? A dream or a goal? 

What’s keeping you from pursuing it?  

It’s scary to let go of the normality of where you are. It’s uncomfortable to shake up the normal and go for something else. There is always risk of failure.  

The amount that you grow is related to how uncomfortable you allow yourself to get. You must let go. You must allow yourself to place your trust in something new, whether that is in yourself or in a process. Discomfort caused by fear is a signal that growth is possible.  

Refusing to get uncomfortable is a refusal to grow. 

When you are first building a business, you must invest in yourself and in your business. You must dig deep and learn all that you can, investing time and money into your commitments.  

Successful people are committed to being successful. What are you committed to? Are you fully invested in your dreams, or are you still standing on the sidelines wondering why you are still where you were at a year ago? 

Stop standing there. Take a leap of faith. Embrace discomfort and start growing today.

Success Secrets – Resist the Urge to Be Average

Everywhere around you are average people. They entice you into being more like them by offering their acceptance and by leading you to believe that everyone else is already more like them than like you.

But the “average person sales pitch” leaves out that you will be sacrificing your goals, individuality, and unique ideas and that you will lead a life determined more by the preferences of the group than by you.

“A person who wants to be a leader must turn his back to the crowd,” says the sign on Ty Underwood’s desk. Ty runs a job placement service that works with laid-off and chronically underemployed workers.

“When I got here there was an attitude that this was all a show to keep the agency’s funding. We’d show up, have the clients come in to fill out some papers, then send them on their way. Nobody behaving as if there was important work to be done, nobody behaving as if there was potential to be tapped here.”

His first task was to change everything. To two-thirds of the staff, he minced no words:

“Here’s your resignation. Sign it.”

Now each day begins with the premise that “Everyone who walks through this door can do more. That goes for the counselors and the clients.” Two years later, Ty has taken an office he considered an embarrassment and turned it into a model, with a job placement record of 71 percent.

Psychologists have observed that bad habits can spread through an office like a contagious disease. Employees tend to mirror the bad behaviors of their co- workers, with factors as diverse as low morale, poor working habits, and theft from the employer all rising based on the negative behavior of peers.

You Can’t Be Persistent Without Perspective

Most of the things you really want are not going to come to you overnight, this week, or next month. Most of what is truly important to you will take years, sometimes a lot longer.

How can you go on, knowing that you have so much further to go?

Persistent people arm themselves with the knowledge that what they want can be done. They focus not on the distance they must go to get what they want, but on the belief that what they want is possible, that they can do it. Persistent people also understand that as important as it is to understand the task in front of them, it is even more important to understand themselves and the perspective they have on the future.

Sometimes he has trouble convincing even his wife, but investment adviser John Conover tells everyone that the stock market is a great long-term investment.

“There is no better long-term investment. Disciplined, long-term investing in a diversified group of stocks is not sexy or thrilling or likely to make you rich overnight. But then again, there isn’t anything that’s going to make you rich overnight.”

He explains, “Good companies with good products will make money, and in the long run their stock will appreciate. There will be dips, because of weak years for the company or the economy overall, but patience will guarantee that you hold the stock when the good years come. And the good years will outnumber the bad.”

Trying for immediate returns from stocks, to John is “a fool’s game. It’s hazardous to your financial health and something I recommend only if you want to lose all your investments rather than make money.”

Comparing people who tend to give up easily with people who tend to carry on, even through difficult challenges, researchers find that persistent people spend twice as much time thinking, not about what has to be done, but about what they have already accomplished, the fact that the task is doable, and that they are capable of it.

I enjoyed the message since it pertained to what got me started as an entrepreneur. I was laid off three different times early in my career and after each time I had to learn new skills to get back into the marketplace to find a job.

After the third layoff I decided while I was looking for work I would also look into making money for myself with a home business.

Today I have been working for myself on my terms for over 5 years and Love the FREEDOM. Would you like that freedom as well?

If You Don’t Believe, No One Else Will

Sometimes we look to others to convince us of what we want to believe. “I can do it, can’t I?” we ask.Ironically, others base their true judgments, not just on what they think we can do, but on what they think we think we can do. In other words, the people around you will most likely mirror your feelings—showing you fear when you show fear and confidence when you demonstrate confidence.

You can’t rely on others to convince you because they will rely on you to convince them.

Paul Gonzales grew up in a poor Los Angeles neighborhood. He remembers the occasional career day when successful people would visit his school and tell the students a little about what they did. Paul says those visits did little for him because he could never see himself in their place.

As he grew up, he witnessed a barrage of violence, culminating in the murder of a cousin. Paul decided that he had to make a change, “That day, I made a promise to myself. I would never make sorrow for others. I would make joy for what I accomplished.”

As a fourteen-year-old, Paul turned away from the neighborhood gangs that were all around him and began training with the local police athletic league. “I knew I had to do something for myself,” Paul explained about a regime that began with 5:00 a.m. workouts. Ultimately he chose boxing as his sport and set his sights on the Olympics.

In 1984 Paul made the U.S. Olympic boxing team and went on to win a gold medal. He’s now a guest at career days in Los Angeles, and he tells students the most important thing they need to learn is: “You can do anything you want, but you have to believe in yourself first.”

People were five times more likely to be optimistic about another person’s goals if they thought the person was optimistic themselves. Less significant factors included the person’s personal experiences and the overall likelihood of the outcome.

So do you have some of the same feelings as Paul?

Just Imagine what he went through. Its very inspiring.

I can relate since I did not have much guidance as a youth. I moved out when I was 19 and worked all the time and sometimes two jobs to get by. My passion was to Ski and I had to work hard all summer to afford to buy a pass to ski every winter. That drive made me who I am today.

You’ll Work Harder if You Feel Wanted

It might sound small, but it’s true. We work harder and better when we feel appreciated.

Money, prestige, and all the other aspects of work we benefit from will be compromised if we do not think that those we work for care about us.

Wainwright Industries of Missouri says its average employee generates fifty-five ideas per year to improve the company’s production of automotive and
aerospace parts.

Wainwright’s chairperson, Don Wainwright, credits his company’s attitude toward employees for fostering creativity. “In most organizations, the managers
operate like parents who make the rules and then administer punishments and rewards. The nonmanagers play a corollary role of children who have to be good and do what Mom and Dad say, or else.”

At Wainwright, he says, they adopted a People First Policy. The new policy “avoids this parent trap and encourages every employee to speak up when they have a better idea instead of either making the suggestion to a superior, who might then steal credit as the idea works its way up the line, or, ultimately, not saying anything at all.”

The policy has been a huge success, and Don Wainwright credits it for a 35 percent drop in production costs and a 91 percent drop in customer rejection rates. It also helped bring home the coveted Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award.
Lower-management workers who felt like they were appreciated by superiors were 52 percent less likely to look for a different job.

Seek Coherence and Congruence

Individual decisions might seem ideal, but placed in the context of a larger series of plans, those same decisions might not make any sense at all. Your goals, your plans, your daily activities and habits can’t be evaluated in isolation from one another.
Your purpose is to make, not a series of independent decisions that by themselves make sense, but a series of decisions that together make sense for your life.
When Isabel and Michael were about to become parents, they agreed on the need for one of them to stay home with the baby. Without really discussing the situation, both assumed Isabel would resign from her job as a nurse. They thought it was the natural thing to do; when a parent needs to stay home, it’s the mother’s responsibility.
Isabel went on maternity leave and gave birth to a bouncing baby girl. While still on maternity leave, however, Isabel began to rethink her decision. Her income was higher than her husband’s. Her medical benefits were better. What sense did it make for her to leave her job when she had the better job?
They discussed it, and although Michael was surprised at the idea, he could not argue with the financial advantages.
It took some getting used to for Michael, not earning an income and being dependent on Isabel’s salary. But the decision made sense for the family, as Michael could see. “Isabel’s salary is the family’s money, and our daughter is the best career anyone could ask for.”

Fewer than two in ten people use a decision-making strategy that addresses how their decisions fit into all phases of their life, including those that appear unrelated. Most people make decisions by examining only factors that seem directly related.

Don’t Talk to Yourself

Answers that seem obvious to us appear that way because of our perspective—everything we know about the subject and everything we have experienced. When we communicate our ideas, though, we need to consider not just what makes sense to us but what would make sense if we looked at the situation with a completely different background.

A presentation is the best expression of your ideas, not to an audience consisting of you, but to an audience that has never seen the world through your eyes. Rettew Associates, an engineering firm in New York and Pennsylvania, surveys and plans parks, roadways, and developments.

In little more than a decade it has grown from a four-person operation to a company generating ten million dollars a year out of five separate divisions.

Founder George Rettew credits much of its success to bringing together different services under one roof. “If we can be the only firm a client has to deal with on
a project, it makes life a little easier on them.”

Combining services is not without difficulty, though, since, as George notes, “geologists and engineers speak a different language and think differently.” To overcome those problems, both for the sake of his clients and to keep his different divisions functioning well, George puts great emphasis on communication. “We need to step back and listen to each other because there is a lot we can teach each other if we do this right.”

A study of consultants showed that 82 percent found studying an organization’s founding and long-term culture critical to improving their ability to successfully communicate innovations.

Always Think About What’s Next

Imagine the average workplace of 1900—a place without the Internet, without computers of any kind, without calculators, without even electricity in many places.

When people look back on 2001, what tools will they marvel that we functioned without? What devices will become commonplace that nobody has yet even imagined?

Those who are more capable of dealing with the future and the changes it holds are those who do not fear change and who practice flexibility. Your job will not be the same in twenty years no matter what it is like today. But that doesn’t mean you won’t excel in the future. It just means you need to embrace innovation because those who fail to do so will not stay on top.

Barry and Judy Wirth own ProPet, an independent pet store in central Pennsylvania. The Wirths watched as pet superstores moved into surrounding towns. These chains had massive stores, incredible selection, and the buying power to lower prices on dog food, the biggest-selling item in the pet store business.

While Barry and Judy knew what it took to succeed with a small business that filled a unique niche, they had no idea how to stare down the challenge of thriving in the face of big and powerful competition.

“I looked at every aspect of what we did—and looked for things we could do better,” Barry explains. Although they had long appreciated the freedom of being completely independent, the Wirths decided the future lay with a pet supply cooperative that allowed small stores to operate with the collective buying power of hundreds of others.

Barry says the continued success of the store is dependent on one thing: “We need to keep up with the future direction of this business. If you don’t change to keep up, you’re going to be blindsided.”

Research on employees who experienced layoffs that had nothing to do with their job performance found that flexibility, a willingness to try new tasks and learn new skills, was the single best predictor of how long people stayed unemployed.

Value Practical Knowledge

 

Every year millions of young people finish school full of confidence and self-importance and arrive in the workplace only to find out how much they don’t know.

Don’t overlook the great importance of the practical knowledge you have and the importance of the practical knowledge you can gain by learning every aspect about the things you do.

Patty Griffin spent years on the coffeehouse circuit, looking for any chance to play her music for an audience. The New England native was thrilled when she finally got her big break, a contract with a&m records.

She found a veteran producer and plunged headfirst into the studio to record. After an exhausting two months of studio work, she had an album to play for the record company.
They immediately rejected it.

Patty realized that it wasn’t a rejection of her so much as much as a rejection of the process that she had followed, one where her input was ignored. “My voice got lost in the production. It became the producer’s record, not mine. It was very far from the direction I wanted to go.”
She wondered what would happen if she sent the record company copies of her songs recorded in practice sessions, songs recorded without a producer or a professional band. “I knew better what I could do—how to bring my voice, figuratively and literally, into a record.”

Despite the fact that some of the songs were performed while Patty was sitting at a kitchen table, the record company loved them as she had originally created them.

With her songs as she wanted them intact on the album, Patty took a lesson about making her music and not “worrying about what everybody else would do.”

Knowledge gained through workplace experience was six times more important than grades earned in school in predicting job performance of new employees.
