How to Close Twice the Sales Leads
with One-Third Effort ...
Master of Rapport ROB BORG writes about taking action in the
business world to get what you want ...
All Goals Start with a Dream.
You’ve heard people say, on January the 1st I will: stop smoking; start a diet; start working out at the gym; and so on. But words are nothing but labels and we label our life experiences with certain words.
A dream or desire, however, needs more than words to turn it into reality.
How then do you turn the dream into a goal?
What we are looking for is action. Here is a saying I learned around 5 years ago: ‘What you do speaks so loudly, what you say I cannot hear.’ Pretty powerful stuff, wouldn’t you say? So to achieve goals we really need to take action – and lots of it!
Here is a proven effective system you can use to help you get started. Go for it and let me know how you went!

Go For It

Appreciate What You Have
Have you ever been guilty of thinking, ‘things will be ok when…’? I know most of us have.
The problem with this kind of thinking is that it effectively puts our happiness on hold for a later date. Not only that, it encourages us to be in ‘effect’ – to rely on outside influences to be the source of comfort. The problem with being in ‘effect’ is that you give up control and give up creating life the way you really want it.
There is a Solution
We can solve this by appreciating what we have and where we are, right now, in this moment. If we have little, we can still appreciate what we do have. If we find ourselves in a difficult situation, we can appreciate the lessons to be learned and the chance to improve.
It takes practice, but finding yourself living in the present moment, appreciating what you have, is a goal worth aiming for.
Start by appreciating yourself. Every morning when you brush your teeth, look at yourself in the mirror. Look yourself in the eye and tell yourself three things you like about you. It may feel awkward at first but keep it up and you’ll reap the benefits.
