MM&I Header

April 14, 2014 - As you think about what you are trying to achieve, where is your thinking focused? Are you imagining the best outcome or are you focused more on all that is keeping you from achieving it? Are you being open to all possible resources and support, or are you stumped because of support or resources that didn't work out? Through keeping focused upon what you ultimately desire and its ultimate outcome, you are also opening your mind to more possibilities instead of limiting your mind by your current reality.


Take an MM&I Moment to image the very best outcome as a result of your goal. What will it mean to you personally or professionally? What will it mean for others in your life or who you work with as a team? What impact will it have in other ways? What will you be able to do that you are not able to do now? Now with these insights and aspirations noted, what can you do right now? What step can you take right now? Your best outcome is within your grasp to realize once you can see it, feel it and then move toward it one action at a time.     


Synergized Quote of the Week

"The birthplace of success is inner-consciousness. If constructive thoughts are planted, positive outcomes will be the result. Plant seeds of failure, and failure will follow." - Sidney Madwed

What trends are occurring in the marketplace that are impacting your business positively and negatively? What trends are impacting your sales and how can you shift to take advantage of the trend, even if it is currently having a negative impact on sales?

My April Me, Myself & Inc. column in Sophie Woman's Magazine is a very personal reflection while paying tribute to a woman whom I admired deeply, Lynne Rahe Byrd. A special gift she gave me and her meaningful words inspired this writing that was waiting for the right moment to be shared. I hope it will make you pause to reflect as well on how each of us can embrace every day by counting and creating treasured moments in our lives and the lives of others.
