Here Is The Overlooked Secret To Success … YOUR “VISION”

“Vision is the ability to see potential in what others overlook.”

Vision is the indispensable quality of success.  Take leadership, for example.  Without vision, a team’s energy ebbs, people begin to miss deadlines, team members’ personal agendas begin to dominate, production falls, and eventually team members scatter.  With it, the team’s energy surges, people meet their deadlines, personal agendas fade into the background, production increases, and the people working together become a thriving team.

Now, consider fitness, or more specifically, weight loss.  With a vivid vision of where you see yourself, you remain passionate and focused, you hit your daily and weekly exercise goals, you stick with your nutrition plan, and you plan and prepare appropriately.  Without vision, you’re likely the next statistic, falling off the diet wagon, skipping workouts, and victim to weight regain (if you actually lost any in the first place).

As Andy Stanley said, “Vision gives significance to the otherwise meaningless details of our lives…Too many times the routines of life begin to feel like shoveling dirt.  But take those same routines, those same responsibilities, and view them through the lens of vision and everything looks different.  Vision brings your world into focus.  Vision brings order to chaos.  A clear vision enables you to see everything differently.”

Clear vision does wonders – for yourself and those around you.  Among its greatest benefits are direction and passion.  Vision sets direction for your life.  It’s like having a road map.  It prioritizes both action and values, helping you remain focused.  And it creates passion.  It lights a fire within leaders that can spread to others.

Before moving on, let’s highlight a very important point, made particularly clear by Joel A. Barker, who said, “Vision without action is merely a dream.  Action without vision just passes the time.  Vision with action can change the world.”

When it comes to vision, Helen Keller may have said it best.  When asked what would be worse than being born blind, she answered, “To have sight without vision.”

The most successful people have one thing in common.  They see more and before others.  What makes that indispensable is that it allows themselves and others around them to begin expanding their vision and acting on it quicker.  If the leader, for example, doesn’t see the vision, the people never will.

When you discover your vision, it becomes your fire, your inspiration, and your guide.  If you haven’t found it yet, don’t give up.  Keep looking.  You’ll know it when you find it.  And when you do, nurture it, embrace it, own it, and paint a compelling picture of it to others.

Because vision is the indispensable quality of success.  Without it, you will never develop the amazing person within you to the fullest.

Make it a great day,
Change That Up!

Where-the-masksGood morning.
The Federal Reserve keeps cautioning investors about the economy and yet their balance sheet is shrinking right now.
Don’t let that fool you.  They stand at the ready to push inflation to 2% and beyond. Before those additional measures are likely to be implemented, it will likely take market weakness.  As a result, the market may be stuck to figure out whether economic “liftoff” is ready yet.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

BREAKING NEWS

The bottom line.  People don’t really care about your WHY – ONLY HOW WILL YOU HELP ME!

I am so stoked to bring you the highlights of my notes taken from Ray Higdon’s 30 minute call with Hank Norman.  The conversations was totally about what you portray when you talk with people … your social image … your social branding – what your audience really is looking for!

#1:  Biggest mistake people make on Facebook Live – People think they can talk-on forever – without following a plan.  They need to follow an agenda … because their audience deserve that.  Value your audiences’ time!

#2:  Biggest pet peeve is waiting for people “to come online” “for the room to fill”Start and end on-timePlease!

#3:  Leading with vulnerability is new.  Reality TV has changed how we now consume.  [We need to not worry about oversharing, or is this not right for my audience, offending someone with the truth, or with the harshness of reality, or being caught-up in getting people to like me! … or in putting that best-face-forward.]

You need to show people the human side of you!  Your vulnerabilities connect with you audience.  Business and personal are intertwined.  One cannot be separated from the other.  Not only is it okay to share this … IT has now become mandatory.

#4:  “I want to do this,” and “I want to be known for that!”  The media, your audience, people cannot relate or respond to seven different interests or seven different skills.  The media only responds to a very specific, singular idea.  Getting someone to pick … believe it or not … is the hardest thing!  People have so many interests, getting them to pick one!  …very, very difficult!

Unless you’re know for the thing you’re good at, or going to be good at… there is this fear!  “Now I will be held accountable for that one thing.”  We as humans like to keep in the back, a reserve, a knowing – that we are also good at this, or that we can also do that.

#5:  Another big pet peeve – sunglasses.  I want to look into your eyes.  Don’t speak into the lens of the camera.  Speak 1-on-1 with me!

Every individual is a sole consumer.  DO NOT address your audience as “Hey Everyone!”  That is just plain arrogant … It’s an insult to me!  Don’t do that … Please!

#6:  And finally, we like to shield our audience with the words, Some People!  Some people struggle with….  Stop it!  Become bolder in saying differently, “The reason you struggle with bad breath is because … blah blah blah!”  Again, define to whom you speak.

That was great.  My wish for you was that you got value from the post.  😉

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
