M|M|C Report – Whatever you want, you will get in 2015

Hi Champs, this is the last Monday Morning Champ report in 2014. You must have already given a lot of thoughts about your 2014. We are sharing the following words with you. Please understand, whatever you want, you will get it in 2015, as long as you choose to.

work hardTo those who are working hard

You are working hard for your future. Maybe sometimes it’s hard to see the end of the tunnel. However, you should believe, after these days on which you are moved by your own efforts and persistence, you will get whatever you prayed for. There’s no shortcut to any promise land.

 

frustratedTo those who feel frustrated

In your life, you will experience three times of growth: the first is when you find you are not the centre of the world; the second is when you find no matter how hard you try, there are always things beyond your control; the third is when you know clearly that there are things beyond your control, but you still do your best.

 

confusedTo those who feel confused and aimlessly

You feel confused and aimlessly when your ability is not enough to help you realize your dreams. You are not able to do anything grand, but you are reluctant to do anything small; you don’t care about any trivia at hand, but only aim for the grand cause over the horizon. However, you must understand, if you are reluctant to do the small things, you will never get the turn to do big. When you can still afford to fail and stand up, learn to put your feet on the ground.

 

procrastinateTo those who procrastinate

You always leave your dreams to the future, trips to the next time, the things you want to do to later. As a result, when later comes, you don’t have the time. All the reasons are excuses for your procrastination and laziness. There’s no waste of time in this world, but waste of you.

 

lonelyTo those who feel lonely

Life will not follow your schedule. It will give you some time for you to feel lonely, confused and silent. If you utilize the time to enjoy the solitude, read more, do something you are capable of doing, when the period passes, you will feel the light that the solitude has thrown in your life.

 

It’s not necessary to regret for the time wasted, but to keep up with it and make some change. The bitterest is not the tears of failure, but regrets for not doing. Don’t leave your tomorrow to blame your today. Every “today” is the “tomorrow” that you have ever dreamed about. Therefore, please make efforts for “today” and lead the world with your feet.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Hi everyone, what day is today? If you ask me, I will say it’s Jeans day at work; my kids remember it’s Christmas eve tonight; and it is Wednesday. I believe this is the best H-Day of the year.

When we almost see the old year out and the new year in, we realize that it’s the time of the year –  making our resolutions, creating our 2015 goals, planning a better year. In order to help you make the whole process more enjoyable and more trackable, most important more effective, we have created the above pie chart and the mapping.

On the pie chart, you will find the six major areas that proved by science to be the aspects of a balance life:

  • Physical – anything related to your body, such as exercises, diet, sleeping…
  • Mental – things related to your brain, such as how to train your brain to keep it active, how to improve your memory…
  • Emotional – what you can do to better understand our feelings…
  • Social – how to connect with people and how to build and maintain relationships…
  • Financial – the economic reality of our lives…
  • Spiritual – our relationships with ourselves and our relationship to the world…

You may set up goals in any or all of the aspects, and you may also add more of what you want to achieve. What following the list is the implementation/execution/action, or whatever you call it.

  • Clarify your preferred future (the future you want), be specific of what you will be doing, who will notice the difference, making it as detailed as possible, because it will come true following your timeline, it will be your real life then;
  • Take the next small step to get closer to your preferred future. Also be specific to what exactly you will do. We acknowledge our feelings, but only specific action can take you to your goal;
  • Celebrate the small but significant result brought by your actions. Write down the answers to the questions such as what you do then that you are not doing right now? or what difference does that make for you by doing things differently?
  • Recheck your belief and acknowledge the increase and elevation of your confidence from acknowledging the small but significant results. The more beliefs you have for yourself, the more dimentional and real your preferred future is.

It is exciting when setting up your goals. And this system will help you generate the internal motivation to keep it up, create the momentum, until you reach your goal.

Let’s revisit your list at the end of 2015 and see the growth you’ve achieved.

To your success.

M|M|C – Strategy Without Execution Is Hallucination! – Mike Roach

take offToday I met with a few entrepreneur friends. We talked about the hardship of starting their own businesses. We also talked about the experience that they’ve accumulated and the successes that they have achieved. During the conversation, one of them said proudly “My strength is execution. I do what I say.” Later on, he explained that three years ago, he and another friend planned to start business at the same time. Now three years later, he has just changed into a bigger officer, while his friend is still thinking, not even took a single step toward the thought.

He has all the reasons to feel proud. Execution is not only important to entrepreneurs, to business people, it is also an essential capability that every one of us should develop and polish. Like Mike Roach, the CEO of CGI, a 31,000-employee IT firm, told his MBA students, “Strategy without execution is hallucination!” In simple words, hallucination means daydream. It is the perception of something not present. It is the world seen through the rosy-tinted glass. It is our biggest enemy in self-discipline. We feel so good about our plan; we are so motivated to visualize our vision; we are so convinced that every goal can be achieved; we are so proud of ourselves to have amazing ideas that keep pouring out. “Ok, this is excellent. Let’s call it a day. We will continue brain-storming tomorrow.” Do you know what’s happening the next day? The same feeling good, motivated, convinced and proud. And the next day, and the next day. At the end of the day, when we sit down and think about what has been done, we start to feel overwhelmed. How come this is not done? How come that is still pending? How come our situation hasn’t changed? Because there has been no execution. We are deceived by the big pictures, the grand visions, the proud feelings. It was as if everything had been achieved.

We agree totally that big vision is critical for self-development, or to make any changes, but the prerequisite is “do what you should do.” Starting from –

  • creating a workable schedule
  • following the timeline
  • focusing on the strength
  • staying on track of the determined path, no matter how attractive the side-way is
  • finishing one thing on hand and then start the next
  • excluding the pending issues on hand
  • holding ourselves accountable for what we promised to ourselves and to other people
  • delivering results
  • learning from issues and success and consistently improving
  • keeping on expanding knowledge base from new reads

There are more things to add to the list as we grow. We have such a grand vision for ourselves, we have beautiful plans and strategies, we have capable and competent human resources; execution is the mechanism that keep the whole machine moving.

W|D|R – It’s the little things that make a big difference.

starfishThere was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded, they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps, picked one and threw it into the water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person who couldn’t understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and asked, “What are you doing? There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What difference does it make?” This man did not reply, took two more steps, picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, “It makes a difference to this one.”

What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If everyone made a small difference, we’d end up with a big difference, wouldn’t we?

Christmas season is coming. When you have the time to relax, chill out or get together with the family and friends, pick one or two small things and make a big difference for other people. You will know then that their smiles are just what you want!

It’s the little things that make big difference!

H-Day Report – What does trust mean to you?

american-airlines-new-logo-livery-2A few years ago when American Airlines was in turmoil and on the verge of bankruptcy. Chairman and CEO Gerard J. Arpey refused to file bankruptcy protection for the company, because of the company’s financial obligations to their employees. Bankruptcy would decrease employee’s pension and other financial obligations they had with employees. He was blasted by the media and airline industry analysts for not filing bankruptcy protection, but he didn’t pay attention to his critics; he was sticking to his promises to the employees and they were relying on him to do so, because no one wants to lose their pension.

Because of his un-wavered commitment to the employees he refused to stay with the company if the board opted for bankruptcy. When an AA pilot was asked if he knew his CEO and if he trusted him, the pilot replied, “I know him very well and I trust him explicitly.” He knew his CEO has his best interest at heart. How many of us can say this about the CEO that runs the company we work for or even our direct boss. Some of our lower level bosses act as if they are the owners of the company and require a certain distance between boss and employees, I’m not sure if we can call that leadership.

The hierarchy of management in business these days haven’t changed much, because the human mind hasn’t changed, they have not evolve with the time.  Some of these people have been in the same position for years and still managing their employees with the same old mindset they started with. The ones that have fallen into management recently, don’t have the people skills to lead their employees to success. No wonder more than 70% of employees are unhappy in their jobs, their Trust level  for their company and bosses are low, and that affects motivation level.  A company cannot run or grow without people. They are the engine of every organization and they must be respected and protected at any cost. What kind of leader will you be if you think of your company and your people that way?

There’s a picture taken in the White House showing President Obama giving the janitor a fist bump as he walks by, acknowledging, respecting and appreciating him, showing him that he’s valuable and he’s a part of the team. I’m certain that janitor feels really good.

If you don’t know your CEO and you can’t say you trust your boss and your company explicitly, (which most of us cannot say) something needs to change. Leadership these days require the leader to utilize all their brains, not just the one in the head. To be an effective and trustworthy leader, you must think with your head, your heart, your gut and every fibre of your soul; rationalizing things only is not enough any more.

Employee performance is based upon how much they trust the company and the leaders. No trust = poor performance, the higher the trust bar, the better the performance. Do a leadership assessment on yourself and see where the improvements are needed. Don’t only pay attention to the numbers in the company, pay attention to your people, get them involved in the company, ask them what we can do to make things better for them; how can we help them to become better, to do better; how can we perform better as the leaders. You start to ask your employees questions like these and the numbers will start surpassing expectations. #Check your employees Trust Level #CheckYourLeadershiptrust

To your success.

W|D|R – Does your fish stink?

fishWhat does that mean?

I’ve involved in personal development for about 20 years now. I ran a successful sales company with people who were very difficult to deal with. We sell a product that was tough to sell and finally, we have to get people to go out everyday knocking on doors,  getting rejected in every which way you could think of, and still push through to get a sale…. I have sold many things over the years but this by far is the most difficult sales job I ever had. Being the Owner was even a bigger challenge. I had given up the rights to be negative. I couldn’t be negative about anything no matter how tough things were or how bad things was…if I did exercise any sign of a negative thought, that would instantly get transfer into the environment and would have an impact on the team, a visible impact that would instantly shows in the results of the entire team, including the office staff, everyone in the office would be affected by this negative moment. That’s the power of negativity.

The fish stinks from the head down.

As a leader, do you have a stinky fish head? If you do the body will soon start to rot, and when that happens its hard to bring it back. “Nothing breeds negativity like negativity”. The cliché when it rains it pours on both sides of the spectrum, is true… As challenging as it might be to be positive everyday no matter what, the opposite is worst. According to research, it’s not possible to be happy every moment of everyday, but it is possible to be positive and optimistic.

Either one positive or negative is a choice, we all know this, it’s no secret, why don’t we do it? Especially as leaders of organizations that have people and their families relying on us

As an owner of a sales company or any company, you must give up your rights to negativity. When you make that decision you’ll begin to see the difference in yourself, in your people and in your organization. The results will reflect the attitudes of you and your people. Leaders don’t have any rights to negativity.

Get rid of your stinky fish head.

We all hear the saying “two heads are better than one”. Simply put, having more than one people helping you towards your dreams will make the journey a lot less stressful and a lot easier. Since we can’t be everything to everyone, and no one can be good at everything, recruiting your weakness can make a huge difference. Some call it your dream team, I call it joint venturing, because I think win-win. Start your journey and start recruiting your weakness today. hire a coach

If there was a better way to help you achieve your goals and dreams easier and faster, would you be willing to try?

The best time to start is now. So, Get out of your head, Get up and Get your ass moving.

MMC|WHAT DOES YOUR MIRACLE LIFE LOOKS LIKE?|”BUSY” PART DEUCE

Suppose your Miracle happens and you’re achieving all your goals and living your life the way you wanted… What does it look like?

Rat_Race_RebootTIme-cartoonBusyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day. I once knew a woman who interned at a magazine where she wasn’t allowed to take lunch hours out, lest she be urgently needed for some reason. This was an entertainment magazine whose raison d’être was obviated when “menu” buttons appeared on remotes, so it’s hard to see this pretence of indispensability as anything other than a form of institutional self-delusion. More and more people in this country no longer make or do anything tangible; if your job wasn’t performed by a cat or a boa constrictor in a Richard Scary book I’m not sure I believe it’s necessary. I can’t help but wonder whether all this histrionic exhaustion isn’t a way of covering up the fact that most of what we do doesn’t matter.

I am not busy. I am the laziest ambitious person I know. Like most writers, I feel like a reprobate who does not deserve to live on any day that I do not write, but I also feel that four or five hours is enough to earn my stay on the planet for one more day. On the best ordinary days of my life, I write in the morning, go for a long bike ride and run errands in the afternoon, and in the evening I see friends, read or watch a movie. This, it seems to me, is a sane and pleasant pace for a day. And if you call me up and ask whether I won’t maybe blow off work and check out the new American Wing at the Met or ogle girls in Central Park or just drink chilled pink minty cocktails all day long, I will say, what time?

Rat-Race-1But just in the last few months, I’ve insidiously started, because of professional obligations, to become busy. For the first time I was able to tell people, with a straight face, that I was “too busy” to do this or that thing they wanted me to do. I could see why people enjoy this complaint; it makes you feel important, sought-after and put-upon. Except that I hate actually being busy. Every morning my in-box was full of e-mails asking me to do things I did not want to do or presenting me with problems that I now had to solve. It got more and more intolerable until finally I fled town to the Undisclosed Location from which I’m writing this.

Here I am largely unmolested by obligations. There is no TV. To check e-mail I have to drive to the library. I go a week at a time without seeing anyone I know. I’ve remembered about buttercups, stink bugs and the stars. I read. And I’m finally getting some real writing done for the first time in months. It’s hard to find anything to say about life without immersing yourself in the world, but it’s also just about impossible to figure out what it might be, or how best to say it, without getting the hell out of it again.

Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets. The space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration — it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done. “Idle dreaming is often of the essence of what we do,” wrote Thomas Pynchon in his essay on sloth. Archimedes’ “Eureka” in the bath, Newton’s apple, Jekyll & Hyde and the benzene ring: history is full of stories of inspirations that come in idle moments and dreams. It almost makes you wonder whether loafers, goldbricks and no-accounts aren’t responsible for more of the world’s great ideas, inventions and masterpieces than the hardworking.

“The goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play. That’s why we have to destroy the present politico-economic system.” This may sound like the pronouncement of some bong-smoking anarchist, but it was actually Arthur C. Clarke, who found time between scuba diving and pinball games to write “Childhood’s End” and think up communications satellites. My old colleague Ted Rall recently wrote a column proposing that we divorce income from work and give each citizen a guaranteed paycheck, which sounds like the kind of lunatic notion that’ll be considered a basic human right in about a century, like abolition, universal suffrage and eight-hour workdays. The Puritans turned work into a virtue, evidently forgetting that God invented it as a punishment.

Perhaps the world would soon slide to ruin if everyone behaved as I do. But I would suggest that an ideal human life lies somewhere between my own defiant indolence and the rest of the world’s endless frenetic hustle. My role is just to be a bad influence, the kid standing outside the classroom window making faces at you at your desk, urging you to just this once make some excuse and get out of there, come outside and play. My own resolute idleness has mostly been a luxury rather than a virtue, but I did make a conscious decision, a long time ago, to choose time over money, since I’ve always understood that the best investment of my limited time on earth was to spend it with people I love. I suppose it’s possible I’ll lie on my deathbed regretting that I didn’t work harder and say everything I had to say, but I think what I’ll really wish is that I could have one more beer with Chris, another long talk with Megan, one last good hard laugh with Boyd. Life is too short to be busy.
