Powerful statement, Are you creating the future you want?

Whether your are a Home Engineer, Entrepreneur, or work within someone else’s corporate structure I DARE YOU TO ASK YOURSELF, “Am I creating the future I want?”

Environment Tracy Worley

The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment you first find yourself in.” ~ Mark Caine

Creating the future you want is not a narcissistic question so allow yourself to release any “selfish” notion with the question. Creating the future you want is growing your potential in the right environment. Your environment is made up of your daily agenda, people, places, and things.

  • Yourself: Few people will share your enthusiasm for growth and moving up and  out. Here are a few statements to focus on for your self-growth and creating a positive environment(can also be applied to your home or work team): 1) Others are ahead of me  (if you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room 2) You are continually challenged 3) Your surroundings are affirming 4) You are out of your comfort zone, DAILY 5) You wake up excited 6) Failure is embraced and not your enemy 7) Others around you are growing 8) Growth is modeled and expected .

Whether you are a success or failure in life has little to do with your circumstances; it has much more to do with your choices.” ~ Nido Qubein

  • People: This truly is the law of sacrifice as to go up we must give up and often this means relationships and or an environment holding us back. Jim Rhone states, “We become like the five people we spend the most time with.” Ask yourself, are there  people in your top five Mastermind Tracy Worleyholding you back? These people determine as much as 95% of  your success or failure in life. This is one of the hardest because you need to sacrifice time spent with people you know and love. However, you do not have to “dump” them just spend less time and create a reference group who will challenge you to be more tomorrow than you are today! My personal best is when I spend time with my mastermind group, they model all of the 8 areas referenced in the YOURSELF category and I am my best when others around me are growing!

You cannot take this journey alone, not if you want to reach your potential. The most significant factor in any person’s  environment is the people. If you change nothing else in your life for the better than that, you will have increased  your changes of success tenfold. So think long and hard about who you’re spending the most time with, for where ever they are headed, so are you. ~ John Maxwell

  • Focus: “Today is when everything that’s going to happen from now on beings.” ~ Harvey Firestone Jr.  A great lesson is what is the happiest moment of your life? The answer, right now! Focus is moving forward today despite yesterday, this morning,  or whatever is in your mind, body, or spirit holding you back. Don’t wait for change to happen, focus on the change and take one step forward. Just as a little one learning to walk, you will be wobbly, fall, and perhaps get scraped up. However, when when taking charge, laugh, and learn from the wobbly-fall you quickly find a way to RUN!

The bitter ingredient in your future is the unwillingness to try: If you do not try to create the future you want, you must endure the future you receive. ~ Tracy Worley

Self leadership is the start to creating the success you desire and creating a dynamic team of leaders who will succeed beyond your “business-plan” expectations. I am sure this peaked your interest . . . “succeed beyond business-plan?” Yes, and if you want to find out more please feel free to contact me because what keeps your team alive is you!

Reflection Leads To Purpose

Tracy Worley is America’s leading grace coach, international key-note speaker, trainer, syndicated radio host, author, and potential seeker, strategist and CEO of three values leadership based organizations.

Reflection and purpose are not a usual combination when writing about Leadership, and most importantly leadership of self.Tracy Worley Purpose

The top 1% of entrepreneurs take time daily to sit in silent reflection and think into their business, life, teams, families, projects, etc. . . bringing about pro-active success vs. re-active chaos.

In a previous post I wrote about your gifts, talents, and strengths and this is where you have the ability to take the time to stay on purpose for the things you were created to do. This is on of my favorite statements and profoundly when I take time in my daily agenda I do stay on purpose toward personal and team goals.

As John C. Maxwell shares with us The Law of Reflection, I find this is the lesson to dig deep if you are going to win big! Clarity found in reflection brings the habit of evaluating experience (wins and fails) to a higher awareness of next steps toward success. Below are example of the power of pausing and reflection for yourself and your team :

  • Reflection turns experience into insight
  • Everyone needs a time and place to pause
  • Pausing with intention expands and enriches thinking
  • When you take time to pause, use  your I’s (Investigation, Incubation, Illumination, Illustration)
  • Good questions are thee heart of reflection (become that “kid” who asks WHY

WHY is the power tool in your leadership tool kit. Honestly, I have never grown out of asking why to myself and also in the board-room. Why  is the most powerful tool because we dig so deep into awareness and intention the ‘aha moments become addictive. The addiction is not a bad word here but you must be careful in how you ask WHY because it is attached to ego which is reflective of our emotions, motives, and accountability. When you start asking why people on your team will embrace it or hate it! I believe if our corporate culture asked more WHY organizations would not have or continue to fail their own mission, vision, and ultimately fail their customers.

  1. Make time in your daily agenda for reflection
  2. Allow time in your teams daily agenda for reflection

Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers. ~ Tony Robbins

I remember a story explorer Albert Schwetizer shared. On a long journey through Africa their group was pushing hard to reach their final destination. During this trip all of the natives with their group stopped, just stopped. Albert inquired about the delay and the response is priceless; we have been traveling so fast they must rest to let their souls catch up with them.

Reflection allows your mind, heart, body, and soul to align and let your purpose catch up to the things you were created to do.

Life Is Now In Session, Are You Present?

Tracy Worley is America’s leading grace coach, international key-note speaker, trainer, syndicated radio host, author, and potential seeker, strategist and CEO of three values leadership based organizations. She works with business executives, entrepreneurs, and leaders world-wide to develop potential, tailor employee engagement modules, and turn up the volume on individuals and organizations potential personally and professionally.

With a background in business management, business communication, project management, and life’s drama, Tracy found herself running a multi-million dollar organization at the age of 25.

Tracy knows from life experience the ups and downs of colossal failure and the elation of success beyond imagination.

But it’s exactly all these experiences that built character, knowledge, wisdom, and intuitive insight into individual and organizational potential. Tracy is highly intuitive, perceptive, and a world thinker in connecting what you cannot see. These gifts give her the ability to strategize with clarity where you are, where you want to be, and how to get there. Tracy’s expertise: training highly successful people to lead with authenticity to the desired success her client’s desire and deserve.

In the board room, volunteer meetings, and discussions with our kiddo’s what does the phrase “you need to be intentional about what you are 968963_10200440255627637_315395286_ndoing” mean to you?

More than likely the person or group making the statement has not implemented “intention” in their life. Think about the statement for a moment it SCREAMS “we are in a situation”, instead of a proactive planning situation.

Leadership and teams thrive on not only the leader being intentional about everything on their calendar but also their team. ” Ask  yourself who or what keeps creeping into your daily agenda and interrupting your mission? Are you being intentional in saying  no? Are you being intentional of leading for the future instead of the “we are in a situation”?

“You cannot change your destination overnight but you can change your direction overnight.” ~ Jim Rohn

The Law of Intentionality is about growth if self so you can help grow others. As John C. Maxwell shares there are Growth Gap Traps:

  1. The Assumption Gap: Assumption you and your team will autocratically grow.
  2. The Knowledge Gap: I don’t know how to grow.
  3. The Timing Gap: It’s not the right time to begin.
  4. The Mistake Gap: Afraid of making mistakes.
  5. The Perfection Gap: I have to find the best way before I start.
  6. The Inspiration Gap: I don’t feel like doing it…JUST DO IT!
  7. The Comparison Gap: Others are better than I am.
  8. The Expectation Gap: I thought it would be easier.

Wherever you are in honing the growth of your craft, leadership, or learning something new the best time to start is today! Now that you have a glimpse of the gaps of growth look at your calendar for the next 12 months. How much time have you scheduled for personal growth? If you’re like most people, your answer will be none. Or you may have planned to attend one event int he coming year and honestly that is not going to cut it.

A first step is to rework your calendar so you have an appointment with yourself for personal growth every day! (STOP the thoughts of I do not have time). Do it anyway, if you want to succeed, you need to do whatever it takes. get up an hour early. Stay up an hour later. give up your lunch hour. Put in extra time on the weekends. If you don’t you’ll have to prepare to give up your dreams and any hope of reaching your potential.

START TODAY!  Great way to start is to plug into our 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth 8 Week program. Still not sure then listen to my Radio session on The Law of Intentionality.

Look UP & OUT!

I am instituting this is NATIONAL THINKING PARTNER DAY!think big, dream big slogan on blackboard

I want to celebrate by asking you. . . ARE YOU THINKING INTO YOUR SUCCESS?

The main benefit to thinking into your success is you create a proactive life vs. a reactive life. Yes, when we spend time everyday thinking about our success it creates the synergy of laying the track before you arrive at the destination of desired success. The other main benefit is creating life-long friendships when you bring THINKING PARTNERS into your life. Thinking partner’s keep you in focus of your WHY and ask you the tough questions to keep you in focus.

Today as I look at my calendar and also few unscheduled calls are people who are strategic thinking partners toward the success of my personal and professional life. They all invest in my WHY and allow me to invest in their WHY! Here are a few ways to identify and or “hire” your Thinking Partners!

  • Do they have knowledge and willing to give/receive effort toward a definitive purpose?
  • Do they have an abundant mindset vs. a competitive mindset (ill they lift you to succeed over their desire,)?
  • Will they refers clients to you even if it is a project they could also bid for?
  • They have same energy level or higher (this is imperative to stay lifted and growing).
  • Are they available for you to daily ask “what do you think about this”?
  • Do they have the results in this area I am working on?
  • Ask questions, questions, questions (pushes you to next level).
  • Can you plan with strategy with support of failing and willing?                                                                                  Modified from Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich

 

Anybody can wish for riches, and most people do, but only a few know that a definite plan, plus a burning desire for wealth, are the only dependable means of accumulating wealth. Napoleon Hill

Thank you ladies for bringing STRATEGY AND THINKING  into my life!

UPDATE: I tapped into one of my Mentorship calls with Paul Martinelli this morning and the subject of thinking partners and who is in your life was the subject matter. What you think, believe, and create a harmony with is what will pour into your life! I had a question and contract I am working on; I asked Paul one question and in the awareness he brought up a simple state I would not have immediately seen because I was aware of one ‘track’ and not laying forward the other pieces.

SuccessCastle Tracy Worley

 FOCUS ~ CLARITY ~ DISTRACTION

Yes, I asked the question and Poop is the word!

When working with my Executive clients I have found a common denominator when they are not on track, loss of focus, clarity is cloudy, and distracted from their main goals and purpose.

The common denominator: They are busy playing in someone else’s sand box!

 What does this mean? When you are at a high level of success innovation and creativity is imperative to moving your organization and team forward. The tendency at this level is to look, play, and model what other people are doing; play in their sand box.

When playing in someone else’s sand box I can guarantee you will be the one to dig up all of their Poo-Poo that has been buried. Your organization has a unique culture, purpose, passion, mission, and vision all your own for a reason. So stay in your sand box, invite others to play in yours to build, innovate, and create sustainable organizational mission, vision, purpose, and passion. Caution, be selective of who you invite in so they do not leave a smelly deposit behind and your team has to spend time cleaning it up.

A Few Sand Box Tips:

  • Invite others to your sand box to add value to your organization.
    • You know where the poo-poo is buried so you can stay focused in the Main Thing.
  • Visit and invite others to your sand box.
    • When playing in some one else’s sand box; observe and ask a lot of questions
    • Invite trend leaders to your organization and ask questions and have them give perspective fitting your purpose, passion, mission, and vision.
  • Create space and time for your team to innovate and create
    • Weekly or monthly team meetings to white board ideas.
      • Invite others in your organization not on your team for their perspective
      • Invite experts outside of your organization to glean a different perspective.

NOTE: These conversations with just your team or inviting individuals from the outside give you an ROI of better processes, boost of energy to your team, and often an outline of best practices implemented to a level of achievement you did not see before.

Are you in your sand box today? Is there someone in your sand box that needs to be scooped out?

 More on….the sand-box next time!

Look UP and OUT!
