Motivational Minute – What I learned From Richard Branson

Motivational minute 2012

I love this guy.  Energetic! Risk taker! Entrepreneur!

I recently read an article from Robin Sharma on an interview he did with Richard Branson in Romania at a Leadership conference.

I wanted to condense the interview down to the 10 points that I learned from Branson…on setting goals.  His points are very profound.  Really nothing you haven’t heard before, but so applicable in practice and life:

  1. Branding is Everything –   A little girl came up to Branson and told him he could be rich and famous because he looked just like Sir Richard Branson.
  2. Complexity is Your Enemy – It is best to SIMPLIFY your product.  Steve Jobs when he took over Apple for the second time reduced the company’s 350 products to 10.
  3. Take Risk – You can’t chase the sunset by hanging onto the shore.  Learn to let go and go!
  4. Set Huge, Apparently Unachievable Challenges – People laughed at Branson when he wanted to start Virgin Airlines.  These are the naysayers, critics and negative people you don’t want, nor need in your life.
  5. There Are No Rules – You must learn to set your own parameters and  learn to fall.  It’s from falling where we learn how to get up, and not fall again.
  6. Be an Idealist – Find a zen garden or a quiet office and learn to dream outrageous dreams.  First thing in the morning is best where your creative juices flow best.
  7. You are The Captain of Your Fate – No one is coming to your rescue. You are the only one who will paint your canvas.
  8. You Only Live Once – So why not get the most out of it.  Rise early…5:30 am, and squeeze the juice out of life, write down your dreams and act boldly.
  9. Be Close To Family – Family should be one of your top values, for what else are we living for.
  10. Extremism – It is the pursuit of excellence and not a vice

In pursuit of excellence,

Motivational Minute – 62 Tips to Get Unstuck in 2013

Motivational minute 2012

 

I’m amped to do everything in my power to help you kickstart 2013 strong so you install superb habits of the mind, body and behavior.
Today is all about 62 quick, actionable and unforgettable tips that will move you to break free of old patterns, stop being the victim and leap into high gear to get your giant goals done.

This is a list I came upon written by Robin Sharma, Author of the #1 Bestseller “The Leader Who Had No Title”. I thought it was undeniably relevant to share this with everyone in my database.

 

  1. Believe in your vision and gifts when no one else believes in your vision and gifts.
  2. Start your day with 20 minutes of exercise.
  3. Make excellence your way of being (versus a once in a while event).
  4. Be on time (bonus points: be early).
  5. Be a celebrator of other’s talents versus a critic.
  6. Stop watching TV. (Bonus points: sell your tv and invest the cash in learning and self-education).
  7. Finish what you start.
  8. Remember that your diet affects your moods so eat like an athlete.
  9. Spend an hour a day without stimulation (no phone+no FaceBook+no noise).
  10. Release the energy vampires from your life. They are destroying your performance.
  11. Write in a journal every morning. And record gratitude every night.
  12. Do work that scares you (if you’re not uncomfortable often, you’re not growing very much).
  13. Make the choice to let go of your past. It’s dusty history. And polluting your future.
  14. Commit to being “Mozart-Level Good” at your work.
  15. Smile more (and tell your face).
  16. Do a collage filled with images of your ideal life. Look at it once a day for focus and inspiration.
  17. Plan your week on a schedule (clarity is the DNA of mastery).
  18. Stop gossiping (average people love gossip; exceptional people adore ideas).
  19. Read “As You Think”.
  20. Read “The Go-Getter”.
  21. Don’t just parent your kids-develop them.
  22. Remember that victims are frightened by change. And leaders grow inspired by it.
  23. Start taking daily supplements to stay in peak health.
  24. Clean out any form of “victim speak” in your vocabulary and start running the language of leadership and possibility.
  25. Do a nature walk at least once a week. It’s renew you (you can’t inspire others if you’re depleted yourself).
  26. Take on projects no one else will take on. Set goals no one else will do.
  27. Do something that makes you feel uncomfortable at least once every 7 days.
  28. Say “sorry” when you know you should say “sorry”.
  29. Say “please” and “thank you” a lot.
  30. Remember that to double your income, triple your investment in learning, coaching and self-education.
  31. Dream big but start now.
  32. Achieve 5 little goals each day
  33. Write handwritten thank you notes to your customers, teammates and family members.
  34. Be slow to criticize and fast to praise.
  35. Read Walter Isaacson’s amazing biography on Steve Jobs.
  36. Give your customers 10X the value they pay for
  37. Use the first 90 minutes of your work day only on value-creating activities (versus checking email or surfing the Net).
  38. Breathe.
  39. Keep your promises.
  40. Remember that ordinary people talk about their goals. Leaders get them done. With speed.
  41. Watch the inspirational documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi”.
  42. Know that a problem only becomes a problem when you choose to see it as a problem.
  43. Brain tattoo the fact that all work is a chance to change the world.
  44. Watch the amazing movie “The Intouchables”.
  45. Remember that every person you meet has a story to tell, a lesson to teach and a dream to do.
  46. Risk being rejected. All of the great ones do.
  47. Spend more time in art galleries. Art inspires, stimulates creativity and pushes boundaries.
  48. Read a book a week, invest in a course every month and attend a workshop every quarter.
  49. Remember that you empower what you complain about.
  50. Get to know yourself. The main reason we procrastinate on our goals is not because of external conditions; we procrastinate due to our internal beliefs. And the thing is they are stuck so deep that we don’t even know they exist. But once you do, everything changes.
  51. Read “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
  52. Know your values. And then have the guts to live them-no matter what the crowd thinks and how the herd lives.
  53. Become the fittest person you know.
  54. Become the strongest person you know.
  55. Become the kindest person you know.
  56. Know your “BIG 5” – the 5 goals you absolutely must achieve by December 31st to make this year your BEST yet.
  57. Know that potential unexpressed turns to pain.
  58. Build a strong family foundation while you grow your ideal career.
  59. Stop being selfish.
  60. Give your life to a project bigger than yourself.
  61. Be thankful for your talents.
  62. Stand for iconic. Go for legendary. And make history.

 

This is YOUR time. Now’s YOUR moment. Let’s do this! 🙂

Making 2013 The Best Year Ever In Your Practice

Motivational minute 2012

I’m into my 14th year of coaching, and after building some of the highest volume, most lucrative practices in North America, there is a very clear and consistent path, that many of my most successful clients are taking. My mission is to ensure that more chiropractors are successful. The unfortunate side is that most if not all, have not had any business skill training, and are not running their practices like a business.

So let me share with you the 6 distinctions of success that I know can make or break your practice in 2013. Take a look at your current business model and see where you can spruce up your business skills. If you are falling short of your skills, then get you and your team to one of my next “Mastery Training Universities”. Revolution is all about changing your status quo, and launching yourself into the next era of practice and life:

  1. Get Hungry. The most successful clients really WANT IT! Their lives revolve around chiropractic 7/24. They live it, speak it and promote it. They crave success and get their feet on the floor early in the morning.
  2. Know What You Want. Beyond goals, you need to set a solid vision board that becomes your daily success compass. Focus on the main thing…RESULTS, and avoid like the plague, all distractors like naysayers and television.
  3. Work Only With “A” Players. You definitely need CA’s and associates that will drive your practice. If you are babysitting daily, it may be time for change. Hopefully you know and are implementing the “10 Keys To Corporate Culture” , that create an environment conducive for business.
  4. Plan Ahead. The most successful doctors have a 12 month calendar for success. They plan everything from their marketing, team training, performance evaluations, even their vacations.
  5. Exude Energy. Have you ever been mesmerized by a high energy person or speaker? I believe that energy is the key to success as an attractor. In a sense, your patients are also “buying” you. Start your morning rituals with exercise, pure energy nutrition and meditation.
  6. The Starbuck’s Effect. Extraordinary service, outstanding customer care and a desire for constant and never ending improvement in clinical skills and technologies. This is what today’s patients are looking for. If you are losing patients to other clinics, it may be time to change the shag carpet!!!
