We always work hard towards what is real and important to us - our reputation. If you think about it...a lot rides on how we present ourselves. When you offer reliability and trust it shows how dedicated you are in what you do.
The reward of having a good reputation is better revenue coming in, better relationships with the people you work with and more opportunities. Customers have been shown to care about your business more if you have a good reputation.
Build your business reputation on the things you want people to think about your business. There will always be other companies around to offer a cheaper service, but if they looking around, they will find better quality and dependability from a reputable company.
We have worked very hard for the last 36 years to develop a good reputation, and I'm proud to say we are still earning it.
The holidays only last a few weeks, but the joyful feeling you get during them should last the whole year. Start out the new year with an attitude of gratitude for all that you have instead of all that you need. Laying a positive foundation will not only benefit you, but also your family and your business colleagues. Hopefully good things will follow.
So many people focus only on the negative aspects of their life that the end up grumbling and complaining their whole day away. Being around negative people can be exhausting. Give them a smile and express gratitude for all that they do so that they feel appreciated. This benefits everybody!
Find something worth celebrating every day. It could be as small as that tasty cup of coffee that you got on your way to work that is going kick start your day into something wonderful and productive. Or, when you are leaving work to go home after a remarkable day, to a fantastic dinner with your family and a good show on TV.
Just the little things can make you feel better instantly.
Have a positively wonderful day!
How are your resolutions going?
Are you going to keep fit this year? Eat better? Get more sleep?
Exercise can help you find balance in your life. What makes you want to move your body...running, hiking, dancing, working out and lifting weights? Stay active with whatever works for you and makes you happy.
Eat well and eat often! Don't skip meals and remember the better and cleaner you eat, the better you will feel. AND, drink plenty of water. (This is a tough one to just jump right into after the holidays. I would much rather ease into all of it and take it one day at a time. You can't just cut me off from all of the "junk" food that I tasted last month.) If you have any ideas on how to make this transition easier, please let me know.
Once you have started all that hard work, be sure to get a good night's sleep. Your body gets in it's recovery time during sleep - the shorter amount of time you sleep the less recovery you will get.
They create a purpose and give you direction and motivation. Evaluate them periodically to check your progress. You can always update and change them as you see fit.
Let it Go
Don't beat yourself up by dwelling on the past...learn from it and move on. Don't let negative self-talk take control, the more you continue it the worse it gets.
Believe in yourself!
