Are you making the right decisions?

This question is not about whether or not you are choosing the right option.  This question is are you asking the right questions.  Seriously, are you spending time making decisions that actually matter?  Are you deciding on choices that will have a legitimate affect on your future?  Are you deciding to do the right activities each and every day to create the future that you want?

I want to challenge you to make sure that you are choosing to decide on the right things and then choosing the right option.

The big things are obvious, but it is those little things that cause us the most trouble.  This blog is inspired because of my breakfast.  No one gets fat because of one breakfast.  Everyone who is carrying too much weight got there because of daily choices that compounded over months and / or years.  I had a choice this morning to eat what I wanted to eat or to to eat what I should eat.  When I take a step back and ask what would be best for my mission in life, the answer is simple:  I need to eat or drink a healthy breakfast that is quick and will not only help me live a long life, but will help me stay focused and sharp for the day.  Therefore today I started off with some juiced veggies and fruits.  I have an apple (Fuji, my favorite) when I get a little hungry later.

We are bombarded by decisions every day.  However, most of the ones we focus the most time and effort on are not good for our lives.  In the last year, did it matter what TV you bought?  Do you spend more effort planning out your vacation week than any other of the 52 weeks in the year?  Do you spend more time scheduling your life around that tv series than the books you need to read?

So make decisions to help you prosper.  I would love a nice hot bacon and cheese breakfast sandwich, but it is not going to get me to where I need to be today, tomorrow, or the day after that.

The time you want the map

Awesome advise from Brendon Burchard…

In Montana, where I’m from, there is this saying:

“The time you want the map…is before you enter the woods.”

The lesson is basic: Before you embark on any journey, know in advance how to get where you want to go.

For those of you that want a map for your future, I’m a map maker.  I’ll help you design some audacious but achievable goals, use your calendar to your benefit, and achieve more in your work and personal life.

Coaching Testimonial

The entire purpose of the concept of “Catalyst John” is to empower entrepreneurs to succeed at their dream business!  I want you to see success faster than you could have imagined and I want you to have your fill of it!  Here is a what happened after working with one of my clients in their life and business…

August 7, 2013

“Catalyst John” is an appropriate name for the business coach whom I consider to be a “catalyst” in my business. Before becoming a client of John’s I lacked direction and consistency in making the necessary things happen in my business to get me to the next level of success on both the production and financial side, which ultimately go hand in hand of course. Seeing John weekly helped to hold me accountable for goals that I was setting for myself and to keep me on track until I had developed the skills and discipline necessary to stay on track independently.

A big part of my business includes workshop events that I put on at least once a month. My events had gotten to a point where people were not showing up and they were becoming a financial burden. John gave me some very sound advice that helped to save me money on the cost of my events and increased the ticket sales to my events. The very first event in which I implemented John’s advice, I made more money than I had from any of the events that I had put on the previous 7 months!

If you are looking for a business coach who possesses the knowledge and skills to help jump start your business or even refresh your business that may be getting a little rusty and needs that slight edge, then I highly recommend Catalyst John. Sometimes we just need that extra push and/or a fresh point of view in order to get us to the next level of success. John genuinely cares about his clients and seeing them succeed.

Sometimes intersections tell you to stop or to go.  This message is telling you “GO!” make that dream a reality!

Are you who you need to be?

Are you the person that you need to be???  Most of us are human and like all other humans we are flawed.  We allow human nature and the path of least resistance to stunt our personal growth and development.  We act as “adolescents” when we should should be “grown ups” in our professional lives.

One thing that hugely impacts my future success and the majority of my past successes is that I imagine what I would have to look like to be successful in that specific endeavor.  How does that “John” look, dress, and act?  What actions does this “John” have to do to be worthy of success?  What changes in my personal life have to be made and what do I have to stop doing so that I can be that person?

Tomorrow is built on the decisions of today.  Go make some life changing decisions today!
