You Deserve This Wonderful Gift! Message From the Road #87

Start looking for this and you just might change your life! I believe it will! Hey I was out riding today and I thought I’d share a little habit I’ve created as I’m out on the road. Watch this Message From the Road and let me know how you think it will change your lifestyle.

The habit I’ve created started a few years ago. If I see some money laying on the ground, I’ll stop and pick it up. I did that twice today and in doing so, I found 2 pennies and a dime, 12 cents. WOW! It’s not so much that I collected this massive amount of money, but what I do as I’m picking it up. As I pick up the money, I will say  this little prayer, “Thank you God for this symbol of abundance that continually flows to me.” Each time, as silly as it sounds, I am just so grateful for having spotted those few coins.

Now, abundance can come in a lot of different ways, can’t it? It can definitely come in the form of money. It can come in the form of being abundantly healthy. Abundance in having magnificent relationships, right? Abundance continually flows to us if we’re doing what? Constantly looking for it and being grateful for what we already have.

Abundance will come in its appropriate time. So I want you to start thinking about that. Start intentionally looking for the abundance that’s all around you right now! Abundance that we go right by every day without taking notice. I imagine that hundreds and possibly thousands of cyclists went by this same 12 cents, but never stopped. I saw it, stopped, and picked it up. Why? Because I’ve become aware, and I look for it on every ride and I’m rarely disappointed. It is only a symbol, but I’ve created the habit of looking for it.

That’s the key! When we start looking for the gifts that are out there, you are going to find them. So what are we looking for? Are we focusing on the big picture or are we looking at the small details? The stuff that really is going to allow us to live the kind of life that we want.

So until next week, this is Greg Drolet saying, “Keep looking for the abundance that surrounds you daily, be grateful for what you have in your life, and keep on growing, keep on learning and keep on leading.

Point to Ponder: What symbols of abundance are around you that perhaps you’ve been overlooking? If you became more aware and intentional, what would you find?

 

How to Become World Class-Message From the Road #86

I’ve got a question for you. What if you could become a world class athlete? What if you could become world class-period? What would you want to become world class in and why would you want to become someone that was that great at any one aspect of life? Take a few moments to watch today’s Message From the Road and then let’s discuss these question further.

Well, that’s what I’ve been thinking about as I’ve been out riding on the road as well as watching the 2014 Olympics. It’s always inspiring to watch all the World Class Olympians, they’re amazing aren’t they? And as I’m watching, I’m thinking, “What’s the one area of my life that I really want to become world class in and what’s the formula?”

I thought I would share what I believe is the formula that these athletes and any super-achiever follows. Now, I have to believe that some of you must be looking for that formula as well. Whether it’s becoming a world class father, mother, husband, wife, entrepreneur, or world class in your personal fitness. So, what’s the formula?

Number One: Every one of these Olympian’s had a dream! A massive dream that’s driven them for years. What’s your dream? Do you own your dream? Is it your dream and are you pursuing it with passion?

Number Two: They have a plan! Years ago they laid out a plan for what it would take to become an Olympian, to fulfill that dream. For some of them they’ve had that dream since they were little kids and it was that seed of greatness that they pursued. They had a game plan in place, they worked with coaches to strengthen themselves mentally and physically and they executed the plan of action on a yearly, monthly, weekly and daily basis. They were consistent in their efforts! Over and over again!

Number Three: They have focus! They’re focusing on the dream, focusing on the action plan, and they learn to say, “NO” to things that are going to distract them from becoming world class. They say no to parties. When everyone else is out partying and abusing themselves with alcohol they are at home eating properly, getting sleep so they can perform at peak performance.

So, they have a dream, they have a plan, they focus and they are willing to fail! They know they’re going to fail and often for many years, but the dream is so strong it drives them on to go out and succeed. Failure is a steppingstone to greatness. Each time they fail, they get up, dust themselves off and they go at it again. Now do they get frustrated? Absolutely! Do they sometimes feel like quitting? Absolutely! But they keep pursuing the dream. If they get hurt, they mend themselves, take time to recover, and they workout other areas of their body or mind that they will need to be that world champion.

So what is it you want to become world class at? Identify that right now! What is it and let’s move forward with it together and make your dream a reality! That dream of being a world class father, husband, wife, entrepreneur, or just becoming the Best Version of You is all possible.

Get a strong dream, own your dream, create a game plan, focus on it, be willing to fail, get up and keep moving forward, and ultimately you will become WORLD CLASS!

Stop right now and identify that one area of your life that you have a burning desire to be world class in. Love to hear your comments!

7 Keys to a HEALTHY Life! Message From the Road #85

Imagine having the health and energy that would propel you to achieve all your dreams and goals! It is possible if you understand the key ingredients and the actions that you need to take. Pay close attention to the video and learn the secrets to a HEALTHY life!

What does it take to truly live a HEALTHY life? If you watched this weeks video I gave you my philosophy which uses the word HEALTHY as the foundation to begin structuring life changing behavior. Let’s see if we can’t break it down a little bit more and help design a method by which you can begin to live life at peak performance.

H-Holistic: Taking a holistic approach simply means looking at all aspects of your life as a whole. Every area is interconnected and impacts the others. As I mentioned in the video, I’ve broken life down into six simple area: Spiritual, Family, Physical, Financial, Intellectual, and Emotional. Now you may decide that you want to add or subtract from this and I encourage you to do so if it is going to help you get a better handle on creating a more effective way of designing your life. If you take a sheet of paper and write each segment of life at the top, you would have six (or more) pages. Now take the time to do a “brain dump” or “mind-map” of free flowing ideas of what this part of your life would look like if you were completely fulfilled. What would the best version of you look like? Remember, this is an on-going process and this is only the beginning.

E-Energy: Where does yours come from and do you have awareness and intentionality around how you create positive energy flow? Do you have boundless energy that allows you to fulfill all your daily goals in a passionate manner?  Or do you come to the end of the day or even mid day and realize your energy has waned and you have no more to give to your family or career. What are you doing to maximize your energy at the physical and emotional levels? Prayer, meditation and exercise are spectacular ways to tap into a positive energy flow, so take time to design a system that works for you. Also, surround yourself with people who have high energy and positive attitudes. We have a choice so let’s make our associations ones that will support our energy expectations.

A-Action: What do you need to stop doing to make room for what you should be doing? Often we try to be everything to everybody and in the process get very little accomplished.  Do you have a comprehensive game plan for life that’s written and specific. A game plan that is specific, measurable, action oriented, results driven and time sensitive? If not, I can help you get where you want to go with my Game Plan For Life Coaching System™  (more on this in future blogs). For now take these simple hints I’m giving you, put your ideas in writing and start taking action. Remember this simple mantra, “motion creates emotion”.  So get out there and Do It NOW! Life is always changing and you will make adjustments along the way.

L-Lifestyle: What is the lifestyle you want to live? What are the dreams you have for your life? Are you still connected to those dreams or have you let life’s circumstances beat the dream out of you? You have within you the power to design and live the lifestyle that has been growing within you. The world is changing and we have so many resources to help us achieve that dream if we will only become that constant learner who surrounds himself with like minded individuals who are passionate and driven by a passion for excellence. The seed of greatness was planted in you at birth, so cultivate, water and fertilize it with a grand vision and that lifestyle you’ve envisioned will appear.

T-Time: We are here for only a short time so what are we going to do with this gift of today that we’ve been given? Let’s take time out of our day to design how we want to live. If you want to get physically fit, how much time are you allocating to exercise? If you aren’t making enough money, how much time are you focusing on learning a new craft or getting better at your current career so you can increase your marketability?

H-Humor & Happiness: We take ourselves way too seriously! Life can be quite funny when we look at all the things that happen on a daily basis. Comedians make careers out of every day events that leave us laughing at ourselves and fellow planet dwellers. I’ve chosen to claim myself as a “Humor Being” it’s a lot more fun. Don’t we all love a good laugh? We love the unspoiled laugh of a child or that gut wrenching laugh we have when something really tickles our fancy. I love to hear my wife laugh! She loves to laugh and we laugh at ourselves and each other many times a day. Laughter is healthy, so let’s all start finding the humor in life! Become a Humor Being! Likewise, choosing to be happy will lead you to success.

Y-You: The life you design and live is all up to who? YOU! So if you don’t design it, someone else will. Join me in becoming HEALTHY HUMOR BEINGS, and I know we will all become the Best-Versions-Of-Ourselves possible!

Keep on growing, keep on learning and keep on leading. The world needs your HEALTHY LEADERSHIP! It’s an adventure.

Action Step: What is the one action that you know you need to take today that will begin to put you on the path to a truly HEALTHY life?

Embrace This and Change Your Life! Message From the Road #84

OK, it’s now February and we’re 1/12 of the way into 2014. How are you doing with your vision and goals for this year? What’s been holding you back? Hopefully nothing and you’re on your way to fulling your dreams. Most people though have already abandoned their quest for a renewed lifestyle and it’s all due to one word. It’s the one word that limits our achievements, causes us frustration, and forces us to live lives of quiet desperation! And that one word is:

Watch the video below and find out!


Now, as you watched the video, what were you thinking, how did you feel, what emotions were coursing through you?  I’m sure you’ve been asked this question, “If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you attempt?” Or, “If you had all the time and money, what would you do with your life?”

Unfortunately, we don’t have all the time.  Our time here is limited, we know the beginning date, but not the ending. So doesn’t it make sense to manage our emotions in such a way that we can live a life of purpose, passion and adventure?

Embrace your fear, reframe it’s meaning to Freedom, Energy, Action and Rewards! You have the gifts and the talents, now believe in yourself, find a coach and live with passion.

Questions to Ponder: What has been holding you back? What have you been afraid to attempt due to disempowering beliefs about your capabilities? What are you willing to change?

So after listening to this weeks Message From the Road, what do you think? How successful have you been at being aware of life’s messages as they come your way? Some of those bits of inspiration are subtle and others not so subtle. Do we recognize them when they drop in on us? Do we take the time to document these amazing ideas so we can recall and implement  them at sometime in the immediate future or long term?

I truly believe that we will live lives that are much more fulfilling if we will slow down and practice listening to the messages of inspiration. Hold on there! Here’s the kicker! Now you have to ACT on those inspiring messages. They may be actions that need to be taken NOW, or they may be future actions.  In either case if we develop the habit of listening and then consistently taking an action, eventually you will live an uncommon life.

So there you go! Some food for thought that can have dramatic impact in our lives.
