The 12 Month #Nothing to Lose Challenge- Week 2 (Read Time: 2 min.)

NTL 8Here’s the Week 2 Challenge (short, sweet, and super critical work to do this week):

As an entrepreneur, what you’re getting compensated in your business is being driven by your behavior.  Spend some time this week looking at your #s (profit and loss, your bank account, sales for the last 12 months, etc.).  Are you making the kind of money you want to be making?  If not, what behaviors have been driving these less-than-desirable results?

What’s it going to take from you (in terms of behavior) THIS week in order to change what you’re being compensated in the long run?

What are the next 3 actions you’re going to take to change your compensation equation?

Please leave a comment and let me know what your next 3 actions are and follow up by posting when you’ve completed those 3 actions.

Have a great week!

The #Nothing To Lose 12 Month Challenge – Week 1 in Review (Read Time: 1 min.)

NTL 8Week 1 was interesting… Very little went according to plan.  I got sick with a stomach virus the first half of the week and missed my workouts on those days.  I lost time writing my next Kindle book, changed course on what book I was writing, and did not record any of the new podcasts I’d planned to record last week.

It’s amazing how plans can go out of whack when your health hits a speed bump.

That was an epiphany for me and it resulted in me shifting some ways that I’m operating in my business.

Click below and listen to Week 1 in Review.  I talk about the 3 main #NothingtoLose lessons for the week and what we can do to apply them in Week 2.

Why Fear Does Not Have the Power to Limit You (Read Time: 3 min.)

maya angelou 1We give other people, places, and situations FAR TOO MUCH power over us.

In a world where we control what we think, do, and how we live, it seems preposterous that any person born with life, strength, and the ability to move would ever turn that power over to anybody else… VOLUNTARILY.

And, yet, we do that every day, in big and small ways… without even knowing that we’re doing it.

We turn our power over to people who would rather criticize than love us.

We do it by buying into their perception of us.

We do it by accepting their beliefs about our limitations.

We do it every single time we allow their threats, ultimatums and orders to run our lives.

And guess what?

That stops TODAY!

No one has power over you unless you give it to them.  In fact, there is no fear, no threat, and no force more powerful than your connection to the fact that YOU are the power in your world.

God made you.  He created you in His own image which means from the second you had life, you had the ability to love, think, live and create.

Creation is the HIGHEST form of power.

So, why are we living as if we’re at the mercy of everyone and everything else?

Because we’ve forgotten who we ARE…

What am I saying here?

It’s time you took your power back.  It’s time you decided that although life might knock you around a bit and although people may let you down a lot, your purpose is not to agree to the terms of a mediocre life but to defy the terms of anybody else’s limitations on you… and that includes your own.

Your fear is not the problem.  Your acceptance of other people’s limitations is…

Stop believing the lie and start telling yourself the truth and, all of a sudden, fear goes from being the thing you hate to the ally you’ve been waiting for.

It’s up to you… Choose to change…

no limits
