“Every business person is looking for the BEST way to get to the next level. This book tells you how to do it – short, sweet, and NOW! ~Jeffrey Gitomer, author, The Little Red Book of Selling and The Little Red Book of Sales Answers
Coach’s Observation: Here’s what happens when you take control of your environment, including everyone and everything in it:
- You’ll suddenly have tons of more energy! Things will happen faster, easier, and better than ever before.
- You will be much more creative!
- You’ll create synergy with the old and new people in your life, which will automatically take you higher.
- You’ll have much less stress! As you streamline the details of your life, you get rid of the old baggage and create more room for new and exciting opportunities.
In coaching, we talk a lot about “tolerations.” Tolerations are those things that zap your energy, annoy you, and drain away your effectiveness, happiness and success. They make you less attractive to yourself, and therefore, less attractive to others. You have three choices with tolerations: change them, eliminate them, or accept them.
Your environment, including the people in it, is crucial to your success or failure. Think about each person in your life: are they supportive of your vision? Your goals? Do they ask you empowering, and if necessary, tough questions? Or do they predict failure, doom or worse? Be aware of what your friends, family, and associates bring to your life. If they are not empowering you to be your best, perhaps its time for them to go! You won’t need to necessarily usher people out of your life, just keep your distance. Look at it this way: there are many people you want to stay in touch with, people you admire … Those relationships that are no longer in your best interest can be allowed to fade away. It’s that easy.
Is your home your sanctuary? Do you feel comfortable, relaxed, creative and alive there? If not, make it the way you want it to be. Again, it is your life!
By taking control of your immediate environment, you reclaim your personal power and set a healthy focused foundation for your future.
