Proud of my nephew @jakeabraham and his GA Southern Eagles going undefeated to win the Sunbelt conference championship when they were written off before the season because they were newly moved up to the conference. An incredible example of the discipline and focus that I talked about in my last post. Congrats Jake
Where is your focus? We often look at people and say to ourselves, “they are gifted!” When in reality what they’ve been gifted with is the desire and the discipline to stay focused and on path towards their dreams. Stay true to “you”. Drive hard in the direction you set instead being directed by society, norms or the expectations of others. You are far greater than you may realize. Now go and make a difference!
Black Friday at my house is my beautiful wife @stefanieforgeng waking me at 4am to head over to, of all places, Home Depot to get over 100 poinsettias to decorate the yard with. Let the games begin and the celebration of the fun of the season. I hope you are having an incredible holiday weekend.
Happy Thanksgiving to all from the Abraham clan. Grateful for my incredible wife @stefanieforgeng who has been cooking up a storm for the last day and a half (she is an amazing chef). NOTE: I probably won’t be so grateful after I eat it all though. Also grateful for my boys @jeremyspk and @zacsinks and then there is @kamievalenza. Have a tremendous day of reflection and gratitude about the blessings we all have. Cheers to all.
Gratitude is one of the most incredible resources we have and it is unlimited and free. During this time of year many of us examine our lives and the blessings that we have. I am no different as I sit back and reflect on this year I’m truly grateful for all of you that have allowed me to speak to you from the stage, to be part of your life through my videos and to possibly influence you through my posts. I feel privileged, honored and blessed to be on a journey as a messenger a possibility. Each one of you whether you are a student of mine, a client or friend have impacted me deeply and bring a tremendous amount of joy to my journey and for that I am grateful and I thank you! I look forward to continuing our journey and building your epic journey in the years to come.
I couldn’t resist first I laughed like crazy then I realize there’s a lesson in this. It’s important that we celebrate our successes especially being grateful for what we have, what we have shared and what we have been blessed with. But when we take that celebration too far we may find that we are resting on our laurels and not serving at the highest level. In business, this is when a David can take down a Goliath in the industry. In relationships – customers or otherwise – this is when the relationships begin to fray under the pressures of neglect.Let’s make sure that we reset our standards A notch above and serve our community, society and our family at the highest level as a role model, provider and entrepreneurs. I hope and invite you to count the great many blessings that have been given to you in this lifetime. One of mine is being able to speak to my audiences such as yourself and to serve to help you accomplish and achieve your dreams while at the same time sharing my life with my beautiful wife, family and friends. Feeling blessed. @stefanieforgeng @jeremyspk @kamievalenza @zacsinks
Are you worthy of recognition? Do you deliver with distinction and strive for excellence? These are the elements that will make you stand out from the blur of choices that everyone has. Ask what do I want to be known for? What do you want to stand for? And then make all your decisions in alignment with this. Curious, what do you stand for? Post it here. Take a stand starting now what you will be in your marketplace. Cheers and now go keep making a difference! The world needs you.
All business is about serving life – yours, your customers and everyone that has contact with you. No matter your product or service the question we need to continually ask is, “how can I serve to make a difference today with what I do?” When we always come from this space our success becomes a byproduct of our serving others. Curious, how will you intentionally serve today? Let me know by posting it here and by posting you will inspire others to step up too. Have an impactful day!
Are you invisible in your market? Jim said this during a commencement speech to a group of graduates about how to look at their own lives. Yet, this equally applies to you AND your business. Many focus on marketing solely as a means to build their business. My belief is that your focus on creating distinction and positioning is more important because without it your marketing messages will get lost in a sea of sameness. Curious, what specifically are you doing to build positioning and distinction? I’d love to hear how your are doing it and how you are connecting authentically with your market. Do me a favor and post your comments here. Also if you want me to answer any of your business or entrepreneur questions on my upcoming show go to www.askmelnow.com.
