Success never seems to happen in solitude.
Great business leaders and world-class athletes all ask for and receive help. A lot. They have a personal board of directors that helps them climb, and so should you!
Before we can request help however, we must acknowledge where we are struggling. After spending the first quarter of 2019 speaking and training more than I have ever done before, I had a new problem. Actually, I had two problems.
I was not saying "no", enough. I was so excited and honored to have these speaking opportunities that I was speaking many more times than I planned into my calendar.
I was tired. Really tired. This wasn’t just rough on me, just ask my husband Scott what I’m like to be around when I’m tired. No bueno.
Are you too guilty of being a "yes" girl or guy?
Sometimes, even us coaches are not masters of Mental Toughness and Sustainable High Performance :)....

In 1976, Steve Wozniak suggested to Hewlett Packard (his employer at the time) the idea of creating a personal computer. He was rejected, so he and his friend Steve Jobs got to work themselves on their dream of individual creativity for each user.
Martin Luther King had a dream that someday we would all be equal.
When Michael Phelps was 7 years old, he had a dream that there were no limits on what he could achieve.
Did these world-class performers meet all of the criteria of S.M.A.R.T. goals (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely)? No. They dreamt big and worked every day like that dream was possible, even through massive setbacks and failures.
Here are a couple of reasons why YOU should dream big too:
1.) Broad to Narrow:
When you dream big, are more optimistic, and shoot for the stars, you are more aware of opportunities that present themselves. This broad awareness may lead you to be more confident and throw your hat...
Feeling a bit out of control or worried? (You’re not alone:).
Learning how to master your mindset can help you to feel more grounded and less worried. You can learn to go from consuming and reacting to learning, doing and moving forward.
Let’s take a few minutes to see how you and/or your team or your family members are doing! This is not a scientific assessment, just a general starting guideline to shine some light on where it may be helpful to improve, so you can be more calm, productive and optimistic.
