You Want Me to Do What?
Most of the time whenever we need to make an important business decision we turn to what is convenient or comfortable. Why is it that we never seem to want to venture out and try new things. Is it the fact that we know what to expect when using our current vendor(s), even if they aren't the best at what they do?
I believe that it's human nature to keep doing the same things over and over, using the same resources over and over, giving the same effort over and over.
Answer these 2 questions.
1.) When you shower, do you always wash in the same order?
2.) When you go on vacation, do you stay in the same place as
last time or at least near it?
What if there was a better way of doing these things? of staying in better places? of operating a business?
Well, I think there is.
We have to be willing to try new and different things. Just because it's different to us, doesn't mean that it won't work.
An example. I've been consulting for a company that is launching a new concept for companies to save money on printing and office supplies by making them a member of a large buying group. Some companies saw the savings they could obtain, but wouldn't try it because it wasn't familiar to them. They didn't want to learn a new way of buying, so they didn't sign up. The companies that were willing to venture out and try this new model were successful! They started saving hundreds and thousands of dollars immediately. All because they were willing to get outside of their comfort zone.
My advice is this:
Be Bold, Be Willing, and Go For It!

Say It Aint So
For years, many of us heard the phrase "Knowledge is Power." We actively devoured books upon books to advance our knowledge in the hopes of gaining power. Some of us even adopted the attitude that I can learn anything from a book. Yes, knowledge is powerful, but knowledge alone will not advance you to that next level of success, whatever it is.
Make Up Excuses Why You Can
We all have excuses as to why we can't do something. Ask anyone and they can give you a million excuses why it can't be done, why they haven't moved forward on their goals, and on and on. Making up excuses takes a lot of energy and time. So since, as humans, we seem to enjoy making up excuses, I have a great idea. Lets make up excuses why we can.

My Backyard Recipe for Creating an Abundant Life
There's a party going on in my backyard. Just beyond the goldfish pond you can hear the low hum coming from the bee ensemble. If you step closer, you can see them dancing on the tops of purple coneflowers dusting themselves in bright orange pollen. They seem intoxicated by the abundance of fragrant flowers. A vast treasure trove, I imagine, to a bee.

Planting Seeds of Action
Recently, I was driving past a local nursery and saw a sign that said, "Fall Is For Planting." As I drove, the idea on the sign was gnawing away at me. I asked myself, "what am I planting for fall?" What actions will I take now that will, with some love and nurturing, bring me a splendid and bountiful winter harvest?
It can be challenging to think about going to the next level. Especially when you're completely overwhelmed by the thought of taking the next step. Are you catatonic? "Stuck on still"? Moving nowhere, fast?
A Burning Desire
