Effective Partnering 

Ive been doing a lot of reading the last six months (Im currently ending book 3 and half way through book 4 for the year) and right now a chapter is called “Effective Partnering”. This is clearly vital when looking to achieve extraordinary success. Not one of us can become successful all on our own. We need someone that wants to help us achieve our goals and its important to choose the right person or youll end up wasting time. Take the time to evaluate and watch someone you want on your team so you can waste less time and get more done. Knowing your own character can help with choosing the right person. And when you dont feel like continuing on a goal or project your partner will be right there encouraging you to keep going.

>>>Distractions<<<

They are going to be everywhere! In the forms of objects and people. People distractions can be the worst kind, thats why its important not to share your goals with everyone or just anybody. Some people will intentionally distract you from your goals because they dont want to see you become that much greater than they are. These people are conniving and deceitful. They may make you feel special, like youre important to them and theyre looking out for you. When in reality they really just want to keep you from advancing in life. Its easy to spot these kinds of people. Take note of who you share your goals with, before and after. Have they wanted to start hanging out more and participate in activities that have nothing to do with your goals? Do they always seem to want to do things that keep you out of the right state of mind? If the answer to these questions are yes then you need to evaluate the time you spend with that person. Never feel bad for doing whats best for you.Never feel bad for cutting toxic people out of your life, whether its family, friends, or even your significant other! Focus on achieving your goals.

Television is another major distraction, thats why its called tell-lie-vision, to keep you misinformed and distracted from whats important. Turn off the tell-lie-vision and be productive. 

Social media is a major distraction to. Its ok not to know every aspect of someones online profile. Dont be too distracted by anything that doesnt add to your growth.

Positional Influence

This is one of the worst kinds of influence and leadership one can have. Having a given position(job, althete, ceo, etc) doesnt mean you are above someone who doesnt have a given position. In fact there are too many people that hold positions that dont deserve them with the mindset of doing just enough not to get fired and there are many people with no given position that would do more than what it takes to succeed and help others. We cant let position block us from our full potential. Imagine you are a manager at an retail store with employees and you make them feel like “less” instead of “more” your turnover rate will be sky high. The goal is to build people up no matter what title you hold, dont look down on anyone unless youre genuinely helping them up. Positional leadership is for the insecure. Having more than someone or being in a higher position should never cross your mind when dealing with people you want to help unless you are giving them something. See the potential in your life and who possess and has the drive to become great while not being intimidated. We can all make it. Believe that and believe in your team and constantly remind them and youll have a loyal lifelong crew and bond. If youre a positional leader thats fine because everyone can change as long as they truly want to. When you help others become great you become even greater! And know that you can learn something from everyone whether their position is higher or lower than yours. Have an open mind.😉 

Lone Wolf 

Sometimes I sit and wonder why some people show the most love to those who are negative influences in their lives. Why is that some people in the world prefer to associate with the ones that arent helping them advance in life? Sadly Ive come to a conclusion that people just want to be around whatever makes them comfortable, whether its good or bad. People are naturally attracted to the ones they are similar to. When you decide to take control of your life for the better and your family and friends are not, they may start to depise you and want to come around less no matter how much love you show them. They may be in fact intimidated by your love. Through all of this confusion you can still love them but just do it from a distance. Sometimes you have to remove them from your life in order to keep a decent relationship when times call for you to come together. Not everyone is going to have the same heart as you but you cant let that stop you from becoming the greatest version of yourself. There are plenty of people in the world who are willing to stand by you in your journey. Focus on the ones that help and not the ones that hate. Theres a saying, “people want you to do good just not better than them.” I love seeing people do good and better than myself because I feel if youre the smartest in the room than youre in the wrong room. Not only should you be good influence but find people who can also influence you for the better. Love and cherish those people because good deeds are a sign of love and until you come across that kind of love have peace in being a lone wolf.

Life In A Bowl

Spinach Salad with:

  • Cauliflower
  • Orange peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Mushrooms
  • Shredded mozzarrella
  • Homemade guacamole

I remember the first time I bought a avocado attempting to eat healthier. It was hard so I had to brown paper bag it and waited patiently for it to rippen. I was way too excited to try it. So when it finally rippens and I cut it open it was absolutely disgusting and I ended up throwing it away. No flavor, just mushy stuff. Trashed it without a second thought. If I would have thought to google something to make, that would have been less wasteful but there was no second thought to it. Haha. But I bought some guacamole from the store for 2.99 awhile ago and knew there had to be a way to get more for less. The container was too small and too delicious not to figure out how to make it. Come to find out one avocado makes more than that little container! Homemade is the way. Super easy to make.

My favorite fruit is by far is pears. Only thing about pears is I cant eat them immediately. I have to brown paper bag them for days. But the fruits I dont refrigerate or eat right away are nice for pictures. 😊
