Be Patient

Be Patient

Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.

-Napoleon Hill

There will be times when we feel like we are treading water if we try to measure our progress by the movement of others. Our path is different and we must keep going, because in time we will reach success. Don’t give up because someone reached a point before you. Look at it as motivation. Take your time, keep going and it will payoff.

As markets change so must we. We can not predict the future, but what goes up must come down. This is also true in business cycles. There is a period where things start to rebound. We must exercise our patiences, be persistent with our goals and keeping on working to reach our goals.

Good Vibes

Good Vibes

“I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do.”

- Jana Stanfield

Our individual acts of kindness makes a difference in the world regardless if no one tells us. I appreciate all the things you do for others. Your positive vibes are always needed. Keep up the good work and don’t let anyone discourage you form being who you are. Smile because your are great.

One of the reasons I started a business is to help others. We all need to work; therefore I try to find people who have a passion for their job or business. Working with people who have a passion for their work is much different than working with a person who just wants money. I find a person with passion can be more helpful and willing to go the extra mile. Passion isn't always enough unfortunately, because skill is also required. A person who isn't nice to others will make a job harder than it needs to be. Try to work with people who have a good balance in passion, skill, temperament and good vibes. Sometimes it isn't easy, because people will mask their true self. We all have bad days, but good vibes will shine through. Sometimes simples acts of kinds can change a person's day.

Understand, Don't Assume

True understanding tip represented with an open book

“Sometimes it's not enough to know what things mean, sometimes you have to know what things don't mean.”

― Bob Dylan

Be careful with assumptions and figure out true objectives. We must look deeper into a meaning to truly understand it. Learn to ask the right questions in order to find the answers we are seeking. As a leader we must communicate effectively so that people understand what we need them to accomplish. There have been times where I’ve instructed people to handle a task and they came back unsuccessful. Sometimes we need to ask a person to explain to us what we need them to do to see if they truly understand.

Believe in yourself

Believe in yourself

“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.”

- William James

The power of belief will change your life, because you have so much to live for. Get whatever negative thoughts out of your head and plant new ideas. Don’t let negativity overcome your greatness. I see it often with kids on the street giving up and doing odd jobs because they don’t believe in themself. I can’t change your mind, only show an alternative for you to decide. I believe you are capable of doing great things. I want to see you grow. Without you believing in yourself the world will never know. Believe in yourself for a whole week and see what happens. Then try it the next week and the week after until you believe in yourself everyday.

Embrace Your Talents

Embrace You Talents represented by a basketball

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."

– Michael Jordan

We all have a talent and are capable of achieving our dreams. Working on our own can get us far, but working together can get us further. People get being self-made all wrong, a support system is how people achieve great things. Embrace you talents and put them to work with others to reach you true potential. We need to do our part and learn to work well with others.

In business there is a difference in working on a business and working in a business. A leader must work with people they can rely on to accomplish important tasks. Within an ecosystem the tasks need to be delegated so that no individual becomes burnt-out, because it has a ripple effect. A wise person understands the importances of team work. In startups and new small businesses individuals tend to do the jobs of many, but that shouldn’t be a long-term plan. Achieving full efficiency takes team work.
