Ask the first person that you see after reading this "What do you want in life?" Chances are they will respond with a list of things that they wouldn't like. "Well, I don't want this", "I would like to do this BUT..."
Have you realized that most people's worst fears don't ever happen outside of the confines of their own minds? There are enough people who are more than happy to quash your dreams, why would you want to join them?
Here are a few things that will work:
1. Decide what it is that you would love to be/do/have.
2. Take MASSIVE action immediately.
3. Monitor and move the results.
I don't recommend taking small steps. Small steps produce small results; and small mistakes. Large actions produce large results whether they are good or bad. This will force you to take notice and change course appropriately instead of slowly bleeding your dreams to death.

What compels someone to do business with a certain company? What keeps people coming back? How do you build a rabid, loyal following? Let's take a look at the 3 ways that businesses can grow their revenue:
1. Create new customers. This is by far the most expensive way to grow revenue as you have the acquisition cost. However, if you treat them right they will stay. Why do you think cellular phone companies spend an average of $700 per customer to acquire them? Why does a grocer take out $30,000 worth of ads per week? Getting them in the door is crucial.
2. Create more revenue per transaction. I have a client who is a hair stylist. After we began our coaching, she raised her prices 25%. She lost her lowest paying 5% of clients and still made more money. She also began offering hair products to everyone in the chair. Once she realized that they couldn't shoot her and eat her when offered the opportunity to buy additional product, her revenue went up!
3. Book repeat business and ask for referrals. Every time I get my hair cut I am asked to book my next appointment. What a great way to keep me coming back! Look at any nutritional company or health club. They don't just sell you one bottle of vitamins or a single workout. They will collect from you every month!
The greatest way to keep a client is to create a "Wow" experience. It could be offering them a beverage while waiting in your lobby, sending a card thanking them for their time, or delivering a small gift to them. For additional information and other great information, visit www.theshef.com
The alarm went off at 4 am this morning, waking my fiancee and I. In a sleep induced fog, I began my routine of finding Diet Dew and realized that after months of training it was time for my first 1/2 marathon. Several friends have ran shorter and longer races, but I realized (once the caffeine hit me) that today was go day. None of this would have been possible without a great team: Shelly (without a doubt my greatest inspiration), Dr. Kaminski at Kaminski Pain and Performance, John Byrne, John DeDoncker, and Sonia and Rick Berg (who couldn't register as it was sold out. They were secretly hoping we wouldn't run )
17,000 of us began the race on a perfect day. By mile number 6 through about 7.5, I experienced pretty bad knee pain. Shelly helped me run through it. It was gone by mile 9. Another thing that kept me going was a tattoo that I had saying that I can do anything as Christ will give me the strength.
By mile 12, Shelly ran out of gas and I wound up encouraging her to the finish line. I don't know how the race organizers do this, but they seem to make the last mile seem like about 10 miles. Wow. Then we were done. The cheering crowds along the way, the supporters, vendors, and staff of the Chicago Rock and Roll Half Marathon were nothing short of amazing.
Who is on your team? Who do you need to mastermind with? Who can carry you through?
