Reclaim your destiny!

Encourager-In-Chief: February 12th, 2020

Do it now!

One thing I’ve learned as a coach is that what most people say they want is really only what they wish would happen. Many people say, “I want to lose weight,” or, “I want to make more money,” or, “I want to pay off my credit cards.” While I’m sure they believe these are things they want, the reality is they are only things they wish would happen to them — not things they’re willing to work hard to make happen.

You can’t walk by a tabloid rack in a supermarket without being exposed to numerous “breakthrough diet plans” sprawled across the covers. Do you know which one of them works? The answer is easy. It’s the one that you start and stick to until you lose your desired weight and even after so that you can maintain that desired weight.

Do you know how to make more money? There are several ways. Do work worthy of a pay increase. Change jobs. Learn how to solve more problems. Learn how to solve problems faster. Learn how to solve bigger problems. Remember, we are all in the solutions business. Your pay is in direct proportion to the number and magnitude of the problems you can solve for your employer or your customers.

Do you want to pay off your credit cards? If you’re really serious, stop buying anything you can pay for outright at the time of purchase. That’ll keep your balance from going up. If you have multiple credit cards, as a rule of thumb, pay off the one with the highest balance first. Pay more than the minimum balance required on this card. Pay the minimum balance on any remaining cards until this one is completely paid off. Once it is, pay off the one with the next highest balance first. Pay the minimum balance required on any remaining cards until the second one is completely paid off. If you duplicate this process, you will find yourself out of credit card debt before you know it.

The reality is, nobody can reclaim your destiny except you. So, what are you waiting for? The sooner you do it, the happier you will be and the greater an inspiration you will be to other people who will keep asking you, “How did you do that?”

Much effort is wasted for the lack of a little more.
