shortcoming or blessing.

January 18, 2010 Leave a comment

I was thinking today, as I try to do on a consistent basis in order to function in life.  There are people in life who will point out things you find as blessings to be shortcomings.  For example, somone may point out that John Doe seems to get gadgets before others.  This person may also point out John Doe’s electronics are updated within 6 mos leaving him to the ‘old stuff’, which is expected.  Is this a (tangible) shortcoming?  I like to think of this more as a blessing.  John Doe is pretty lucky to be able to experience things he enjoys and is a trendsetter.  Lucky for him, he may also get bored easily so the fact that gadgets change in 6 mos may be what excites him? 

Kind of like changing my hair every 5 weeks.  It’s like a whole new Pribble.  If my hairstylist chooses the wrong cut for my face…it’s ok.  Why?  Because hair grows back.  5 weeks later…new Pribble.  Love it.

Don’t get caught up in what others have and always be thankful for what you do have.  The fact is things are only ‘things’.  Life is short and nothing matters more than the loved ones you have in your life and the way you choose to live your life.  Count your blessings.  The more humble you are the more blessings you will receive.  I have learned the hard way a time or two…which I am sure I will continue to learn for the rest of my days.

I love my family and friends…gadgets, schmadgets are just extras people get to enjoy.

Enjoy your day!



Get er’ Done.

Has anyone ever wondered why they just can seem to get things done? Save money? Take their dream vacation? Close the sale?

The key to getting these things done is writing your goal or plan down, remain CONSISTENT and most importantly just GET ER’ DONE!

Many people live their days putting things off…waiting for tomorrow…and tomorrow…and of course, yet again…for tomorrow.  They write their dreams down only to stare at the note day in and day out until spring cleaning rolls around = d-day to throw away the piece of paper that has not made their dream magically appear. Just as worst, people make the first few steps towards their dreams only to be distracted by this thing we call life. Then a year later, stumble across their goals/dreams only to find out they are back at square one. Now I am not saying to live life only by strands of goals and dreams. Life does happen and life is a wonderful adventure to experience, just don’t forget about your dreams and sell yourself short. You can live life and reach for the things that burn inside you.

The only way to get things done is to do it and start now. Take things step by step, day by day and before you know it you will be closer to your goal or your dream.

In sales, this means to always follow-up with your customers. You are there to provide a service by being the expert they need to answer any questions and guide them along their path to educated decision making.

In savings, this means to put a little away every day – starting today.

We can only live the lives we actually put forth the effort for. I always see those who dream to live and those who live their dreams. Which person will you be?

Get er’ done…and get er’ done now!
