    • New VW and Other Purchases I Didn’t Make June 4, 2008
      It seems strange considering my profession.  I recently pulled a copy of my credit report through the credit watch service  I am a member of.  I needed to purchase a car so I wanted to see where my scores stood and shop for the best interest rate.  To my surprise I had purchased a brand new […]

    • Beauty in Simplicity Chapter IV – The Final Verse April 25, 2008
      My family lives in a small, rural town in Southern Indiana. We are surrounded by a soy bean field with hundreds of sprawling acres across the street and a large lake that adjoins our property in the back. Sounds nice, right? Why am I so discontented?What is it that continues to drive me toward always […]

    • Beauty in Simplicity Chapter III – The Endless Road April 24, 2008
      I began writing about the subject as a result of my daughter and I going on a field trip to our county 4-H last week. All the modern day farmers talking about raising chickens, cows, rabbits, and living off the land made me yearn for a life like that. This is my journey…The truth is […]

    • Beauty in Simplicity Chapter II – What’s in the Box? April 23, 2008
      In his book, Halftime, author and successful businessman Bob Buford comments on the purpose of money in the following manner: Mike Kiami is a strategic planning consultant. He is brilliant. He is intuitive. He is demanding. He slices through all the pretense and posturing, and hones in on the core. He does not believe in […]

    • Beauty In Simplicity – Chapter 1 April 22, 2008
      “Stop this train, I want to get off!” – Vanilla Ice Yesterday I touched on the fact that I am soul searching for the simple life. My wife and I used to think the Amish had the answer. I now know, as I mentioned, that I do not have to buy a farm and work […]

    • A Rabbit Meat Shortage, The American Consumer, and Something About The Simple Life April 21, 2008
      I went on a field trip with my 3rd grade daughter this past week to our county 4-H. I learned a lot about farm animals. It was quite amazing because I saw the farmer of today and even with all the modern technology, (like a $280K combine that has a stereo, GPS system, and two seats) it […]

Believe in Blue (You)?

No one saw it coming…I mean No One…except for Kentucky. In July of this year sports writer Steve Moline of Kentucky Ink (http://www.kentuckyink.com), wrote: “This is the 2nd (LSU) of 3 games that the Cats will be expected to lose by a big margin. There would be no bigger upset possible on the schedule.

 

The upset happened. The cats played without three of their best players and yet still came out on top in triple overtime against top ranked LSU. So how did this happen? How do you take a team that no one really expects much from and turn them into winners? Is it world class talent? Sure, but that is expected at this level. A great game plan? Absolutely! However, you can have a great plan and still lose.

So what separates the men from the boys? One word – BELIEF! Head Coach Rich Brooks began the season with the mantra of Believe In Blue. Nobody really noticed, but the players did. They bought into it. They bought into it with all their heart. Eyebrows raised when Kentucky tromped Louisville in the season opener. That was not supposed to happen! The irony of it all was that Kentucky got a quick pat on the back, and then buzzed about Louisville. What is wrong with Louisville? They just had a bad day. Hmmmm. Bad day?

 

Belief is the key. Just like Kentucky, in business you have to focus in with laser beam intensity on the game at hand and play with grit and raw determination. There is no quit – there is no alternative to this business. There is only win. So yes…no one in the market right now expects you to win. Everyone anticipates failure because of all the bad news and tough guidelines. So, what are you going to do? Are you going to quit? Or is there more…will you buy into Belief – Will you have what it takes to make it under extreme pressure and adversity? The bills are coming due again this month – how am I going to make it? How will I survive another month?

 

Believe in you! This is not a motivational speech – this is reality. If you believe in you then people will believe in you. Your team will believe in you. Your clients will believe in you and want to work with you because of your confidence. They are looking to you to assure them that they are making the right choice. Your clients and referral partners want to believe in you. Give them a reason. Make them think they are going to be missing out on something big if they do not do business with you.

 

So when you are making your calls today – make them with confidence! You have the answers. It is all going to work out and you will come through the fire and be the person that God wants you to be.

 

Best of Luck,
