Not Satisfied With Where You Are; STOP - Change The Action Change The Outcome
"If you keep on doing what you have always done, you will keep on getting what you have always gotten!" So if you don't like how things are going in any area of your business, career, life, STOP!
Think about what you want, focus in on what's important and develop strategies and simple steps you can take to do something new and achieving new results.
A lot of what we do as "normal" or "routine" is a habit, and if we don't like where we are it's a bad habit. We put off filing our bills, paperwork, information we want to keep because we'll do it later. But we can't find anything in the stacks of stuff lying around and we can't get anything done with all that clutter because our mind is stuck.
Our normal response is to dream of the day we can be organized, cut through the clutter, and come into work or home and see a clean organized desk with everything at our finger tips. But since that day seems too far off or too time consuming to create we continue with our routine and get the same results and worse we add to the frustration, that endless dragging feeling, and the cycle of never getting ahead gets bigger.
Create a new habit and make it a good one. One that moves you into action and gives you the results you want. It will take commitment on your part and it will take doing it repeatedly over time to make it a habit, but after several weeks it will become comfortable to do it the new way and uncomfortable when you go back to the old way.
Think of all the time and most importantly, energy you put into dealing with and reacting to the consequences of your bad habits. Think of the energy drain that occurs by being dissatisfied with what is happening in your life; it's tremendous, and if you put that same energy into creating your best life it would be truly fabulous indeed.
"If it just takes changing habits and sticking to them how come everyone doesn't do it and have what they really want?"
Because it takes action and it's a little scary, we know we don't like where we are now, but we know it, it's comfortable.
A good thing to ponder; have you had enough discomfort and pain because of your routine and the bad habits you currently practice to make it worthwhile for you to change? Have you envisioned a great enough life that it's worth taking action, making the commitment to yourself, and putting energy into creating your best life?
If you haven't then settle into your routine and accept that you are getting the best results you can based on the vision you've formed and the habits you have. This action alone will change your perspective and create change in your life.
If you have experienced enough discomfort and pain then make a conscious choice to take action. Think about what's important to you, craft an extraordinary vision and create your best life. Be very clear about everything you want in your vision and find someone who can give you support, will genuinely listen to you without judgment; without creating new obstacles for you and who will support you in attracting what you really want in life.

Fear the Future? Dont.
In one sense there are three parts of our lives. Past, present and future. How each of these is viewed has huge consequences.
Set Goals In Life
It is important to set goals in life. To accomplish those goals, you need a healthy supply of energy. Even the best car cannot run without fuel, so how can your body work without energy? The more energy you have, the further you can "ride" in this life. Unfortunately, the body's energy cannot be obtained through an electric outlet or at a gas pump. Instead, it can be obtained from many different sources.
Getting To The Top By Fits And Starts
I would venture to believe that most people have the qualities to make them a success. Then why are not more of them successful? One observation is; by not following through on actions that they started with. They have victory in sight and then do you want to know what they do?
Working on Your Groove
We all come to a point in our lives, like in the movie "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" that we lose sight of who we are. Life has a person in so many different roles such as parent; employee and spouse we tend to lose "us" in being there for others. Although Stella got her groove back by meeting a man that was 20 years younger than her, how do we know that Stella's groove is going to stay? Stella still had some matters in her life that she needed to clear up before taking a vacation to Jamaica Taking a vacation is a temporary fix. When you come back all the problems are still there waiting on you.

Whats Perfect About Imperfection?
Let me try something new but please, please, please, let me do it right and well the first time. If we always do things well, always do things right, and people know us as someone who always gets it right, then we've set ourselves up. It's costing us.

Whose Goals Are They?
Many have goals, but few reach them all. Businesses like sports teams aspire to making goals (gaining points) to earn rewards. Are your goals clichéd with being productive? Why is it so difficult to set realistic goals that 100% of the time you can reach with ease? Ever think about what the motivating factors are that caused you to choose those goals? Goals cannot be set alone - they need reflection and confirmation of the origin along the surrounding dynamics to assure the appropriate method to set realistic goals. If you choose to set goals based only on what you think is right, that will not work alone. You need to agree that the goals set by your organization are also your goals but not limited to their plan - make your own! Look beyond, dream about what you wish for your loved ones, for yourself and start there. Taking charge of your own destiny will keep you productive. You will be able to look beyond the politics of organizations that can diminish your efforts to reach and exceed goals when they are not your own.
