Step Up Your Game

After 29 years of in person Mind Masters meetings, and having to pivot at least for the time being, what really made members wake up to how important being surrounded by an entire team of entrepreneurs has meant in keeping the focus on growing their businesses, really meant.  Market places may be slow for businesses and inertia and fear perhaps has taken over.  The Mind Masters teams have worked to understand each other’s challenges and concerns which helped members gain a continuous stream of solutions – systems, tools, and a path to personal, professional and financial growth even during uncertain … Read More

Facing the Covid 19 Storm

As I was looking for a message that would serve everyone, in particular entrepreneurs, I found a quote written  by James Allen in his book
As a Man Thinketh, that certainly fits this time of chaos.

Tempest-tossed souls, wherever you may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this—in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hands firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleep; wake Him. Self-control is strength; Right Thought

It’s Time to Poke Yourself!

The second half of the year has arrived! Are you at the mid-point for your 2019 Goals and Objectives? Or are you finding all the drive that brought the initial motivation and excitement has melted away, the steam has run out, the place you are in is comfortable and the dream world has slipped out from under?

Perhaps the goals you set were so big you feel beat up in the process to achieve them. Or you have achieved that big goal and don’t know where to go from here. Having worked with small business owners over the years, these … Read More

Work with Your Strengths

Recently while sharing a topic on productivity with Mind Masters members, it reminded me of one of the keys I wrote about in my Master the Game of Business book, “work from your strengths”.
You have the opportunity to do what you do best everyday; but chances are you don’t because you are not investing your time making the most of the strengths, skills and resources you already have. Psychologists have studied the effect that when you’re focusing on strengths, you have higher productivity and increased overall satisfaction with results.

When a Business owner focuses on the business’s strengths, they … Read More

Play a BIGGER Game!

As I have intermittently watched some of the Olympic competitions I ask myself what fuels the human desire to get someone through all the perspiration necessary to overcome the inevitable obstacles along the way. I believe each of those athletes had to move from hoping to knowing they had what it takes to compete on the Olympic stage.

Last month in my newsletter I focused on commitment to goals, and gave some principles necessary to exert the inexorable power on your outcomes. What I have asked my Mind Masters members to do was to consider generating 10X times their revenue … Read More

Commitment Counts!

Commitment is the Mind Masters theme for this year.  This can be the year of your dreams, the year of great accomplishment, the year you realize and utilize your untapped potential; the year you achieve long sought after goals in all areas of your life. This year will be exciting and rewarding only if you make it so.  You ask how can I determine to make it such a year?  The year will hold accomplishment, realization and achievement only if you commit to making it happen; only if you enter and live each day with the commitment to your goals.Read More

Make it a Million Dollar Day!

Over the years in weekly Mind Masters meetings I end our meetings by encouraging members to use their power to make it a “Million Dollar Day. But what MAKES it a Million Dollar Day?

Everything in life starts with thought! As you think about the day ahead, how will you measure it? Most of us plan what we will do, but how many of us think about what will make it a truly successful day.

“This dynamic plays out in and around our lives every single day. Our thoughts drive our experience. Thoughts do, in fact, become things. Things like

Do You Have a Personal User’s Guide?

Guest Article By: Karl Bimshas

If you did not come with a user’s guide, write one.

You might think working with you is a dream. You are in your head all day, so, you know your intentions and beliefs better than anyone else, and I am sure they are all sound and reasonable. The problem is; no one else is in there with you. Even your closest allies, those who know you inside and out, are sometimes sideswiped by your actions.

Why?

Because you are not nearly as clear as you think you are. You did not come with a … Read More

Keeping It All Together: Test Your Priorities

As we quickly move into 2nd Quarter it is easy to continue to be caught up in the bustle of day to day business in the drive to make sure you meet your monthly financial goal. It can be tempting to spend a significant portion of you time fighting the myriad fires that crop up every day.
Now is a good time to step back and set laser-sharp focus on the really important priorities, so you can keep from spending time on what is not.

By taking time to review your business goals and results the priorities should be unmistakably … Read More

Choose Effectiveness

Life gives us choices; we can either move up the ladder of success or we can hang on to the rungs and fail to move. Holding on is always safe and secure, while climbing is rough and uphill.

Many of the small business owners I work with are seeking greater success but often fail to follow through with the resources needed. The depth of real success is not a flash. It doesn’t happen overnight and it isn’t always a matter of doing and having. There has to be time to grow; an effective business requires nothing less than personal effectiveness.Read More
