The Greatest CEO
Think of CEO as Chief Encouragement Officer
1. Deal with rejection. Learn how to turn rejections into positive energy to move forward. Most people stay where they are at because they cannot deal with rejection. Rejection is part of the life of a great achiever.
2. Stay focused. Make sure you know when and why you are drifting away. Never let yourself drift away for long. Live by your priorities not your obligations.
3. Recalculate. Learn to redirect towards your destination and do it fast. Learn to plug into your subconscious mind. Picture your destination in clear pictures.
4. Be the CEO. Who is your Chief Encouragement Officer? Be your own CEO and watch what happens. How can others believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself? Remember that belief is all or nothing. Never let a bit of doubt creep in.
5. Follow the GPS. Be careful, we are trained to go with the crowd and be mediocre. Program your GPS to your destination and follow the instructions. Ignoring the system instructions is common and fatal.
6. Picture it. Do you have a clear picture of what your victory looks like? We only get what we picture. Don't just go through the motions. Only go on purpose. We can use our subconscious mind to be there before we get there. When we arrive we realize we have been there many times before.
7. Savor solitude. Solitude is the garden of our hearts. Spend time in solitude. Cultivate the garden of your mind. Pull out all the weeds that pop up as soon as you notice them. It is a lot easier to kill those problems before they are deep rooted in our mind.
Will you join my cause to fight mediocrity in America? Pass these nuggets on to others.
We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.
Be blessed and be a blessing to others.
