Why You Need to Build Your Brand!

Branding-img-1071-200x200In today’s busy world there’s a lot of chatter and noise and your message may be getting lost in the shuffle. Who’s brand are you building?

Now you may be saying, “What brand and what message are you talking about. Little old me doesn’t have anything important to say.”

Everyone has their own personal brand and people need to know about it. Whether you work for a corporation or as an entrepreneur, you are worth branding! In fact, whether you know it or not, every day you are promoting your brand. Every day you are making an impact on the lives of others.

Your brand is who you are, what values you hold, your character and your message.

In the business world it’s called your value proposition. This might very well be the years of experience that you have in an industry or the wisdom you bring to the lives of others.

Recognize that you have gifts that no one else has or will ever have. You have been given talents and strengths that have a purpose in this world. If you will begin to explore these gifts and live them by example, you will soon find that the value you bring into the lives of others is needed and sought after.

Many of us spend countless hours, weeks and years building the brand of the corporation we are affiliated with just to collect a paycheck, just to get by. Yet if you would spend just a fraction of that time building your own brand and recognizing that you have a voice that needs to be heard, you would receive amazing compensation.

This may not come in the form of finances but it would surely come back to you in love and respect.

Begin to distinguish yourself from the corporate brand and your personal brand and watch how much more fulfilled your life becomes.

Start getting noticed in this noisy world by identifying your strengths, talents and passions. Let everyone know who you are and what your purpose and passion in life is. Be bold and live life at full tilt! Make each day a masterpiece and a daring adventure.

You are an important brand and the world needs to hear from you and what you represent. My purpose is to help you define your life’s purpose and be a resource for helping you define your personal brand. In the comment section, let me know how I can help you be a leader who is seeking to live to your maximum potential.

Why This One Belief is Inhibiting Your Success!

Goals

It’s January 1, of any year! Christmas is over, all holidays are behind you and your sitting by yourself with a cup of your favorite morning coffee or tea. You have in front of you a beautiful, new, hard bound journal and you’re inspired to finally change your life!

YOU ARE  COMMITTED! RIGHT?

You separate your life into key areas, and then you start defining exactly how your life is going to be different in the next twelve months and you’re starting TODAY! Right?

Fast forward six months, it’s July. What has change? For most of us, nothing!

Why?

Because Goal-setting does not work! OK, I said it and it’s proven time and time again. Goal-setting is an incomplete process.

You set your goals and soon you find yourself  frustrated.

Do you want to know the reason? OK, I’ll tell you.

You have not attached enough emotional capital as to WHY you need to ACT on the goals you set. You’re not emotionally connected to what your life can actually look like if you not only decided, but actually take action to bring them to life.

To make significant change, we need to attach a FEELING of  the dream-fulfilled. You must be able to SEE the change as if it has already occurred. You must SEE and FEEL yourself living the life you have imagined and envision it daily!

So you must not only envision the successful achievement of  the life you want, but you also MUST ACT daily to create the habits to support your vision and feelings!

Now here’s the BIG question!

When are you going to stop procrastinating and start living the life God gave you the talents to achieve?

I love the joke, “Do you know how to make God laugh?” Answer: “Tell him your goals.” Why would that make God laugh, because He knows you are not going to ACT on them! How does he know? Because your life has been one failed New Year Resolution after another.

I’m suggesting we make a quote from Sir Richard Branson our new mantra for the remainder of your life, “Screw it, let’s do it!”

Create a strong, compelling vision for the years you have left, create an inspiring action plan, develop the daily habit of consistent, persistent action, see yourself living that life, and don’t make God laugh, but make him proud that you actually LIVED the life He gave you!

“Where there is no vision, the people will perish.”

A vision is a precise, clearly defined goal with a detailed action plan and a timetable for achieving that goal .

Don’t wait for your ship to come in. Either swim out to it or build your own ship. To save yourself you must have the mindset of Noah!

Don’t be a goal-setter, become a Goal-Getter!

Consider this: If you are serious about using your talents, and committed to changing your life, what actions are you going to take today to begin your life transformation?

This Message Should Be Shared!

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood.  Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard.

So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World.


Great video on Louie Zamperini

Why You Need to Hit Reset!

I’m back and excited about The Message From the Road!  Most of you know I’ve been off  getting a brand new hip and now after 2 months of rehab, I’m heading out to start my training again.

What’s happening in your life right now? Are you on track to achieve all your dreams? Maybe now’s the time to hit the RESET button and make a direction change! Half of 2014 is now behind you, how are you doing?

In this message you’re going to have the chance to watch my video and I’ll be expanding on the video in the text portion with some helpful hints on how to make this your most spectacular year. I also look forward to any comments and questions you may have, so don’t be shy.

Be sure you read this section below!

The balance of 2014 is going to be an amazing year! It’s now time to review, revisit and reset whatever your objectives were 6 months ago. Let’s get with it and make the rest of the year the best of the year!

How are you going to do that? By getting a real grip on your dreams, goals and visions. By putting in the action instead of just wishing, hoping, dreaming and praying (sounds like a song)!

You know what to do, just hit RESET and override the FEAR! Recognize that you are a genius with God-given talents that NO ONE else possesses or ever will posses. You are unique!

Just own your dreams and realize that if you RESET your action plan nothing is impossible. In fact just say, “I’m possible and so are my dreams. All the experience, or youth that I possess serve me in my quest for abundance.”

So here’s the questions to ponder: What aspect of your 2014 plan needs to be reset? What have you done exceedingly well this year? What can you improve upon to make this the best year of your life?

Now don’t be shy, let us know in the comment section what changes you’re going to make or what’s been working for you. Commenting is important to the tribe, so we can all benefit. My focus has been on hitting reset on my health and regaining the physical and emotional energy required to live at peak performance.
