Strap on your helmets boys and girls, it’s time for some tough love. There’s too much complaining about Monday mornings and it needs to stop. Complaining is a waste of time, energy, and is poison to your state of mind. Spewing negativity just because it’s a certain day isn’t going to solve anything. It isn’t going to change your crappy job, your stressful commute, or make that test you have to take go away. It. Does. Nothing.
Back when I was in and out of college and working multiple jobs just to scrape by, I had a terrible victim mentality. I always complained about how tough my life was, that everyone had it easier than me, and that it was always someone else’s fault for my lack of success and my situation.
So I got a quick tip for you today and it’s one that I’ve been using for a really long time but I think it’s always important to give credit where credit is due. I consider myself the ultimate student when it comes to student of the game when it comes to business and productivity and getting ahead in areas, which is funny because as a former three-time college dropout, I used to have a belief system that I was a very bad student. I just realized I was in the wrong structure that the formal structure of school and college and the way the traditional world tells you that you’re supposed to learn, I didn’t fit into very well and so I was told, “Hey you’re a bad student.”
Much of what we do in our professional lives doesn’t pay immediate dividends. It’s what I’ve taken to calling “painting the fence”, because it’s so easy to focus on getting the results you can’t control rather than the things in your control.
So, it’s no secret that I’m focused on using video to help grow my business since it’s super powerful. I’m all over YouTube and what I’ve learned in the past year has helped it just blow up with subscribers and views. I’ve gotten into Periscope and it’s been absolutely killing it for getting my business in front of new eyes and keeping it in front of my current followers.
by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Question: Where are all the MEN leaders? This past weekend I attended a Leadership Retreat in California. Being around so many amazing leaders, I learned so much. But I also noticed something. It became very obvious to me that the most passionate leaders, the ones who were able to rally the troops, and put people into true action were primarily women. Now ladies, before you get all riled up, this is NOT an anti-woman blog post. I admire all the strong women I see inspiring others to take action and create change in their families, communties, and lives. These amazing women have created cultures of action. They were rallying other women. Not only identifying problems but igniting action by challenging other women to stop complaining about their problems, and join a movement to do something about it. I loved it! The passion and fire was…
