Are You a Mercedes, Ford, or a Lamborghini?

“We’re going to let our business grow organically,” he said

as we sat down to do a strategy session for his business.

I don’t know about you, but to me, that’s code for, “We’ll only do the business

when we feel like it.” You and I both know that if we only “did” our business when

we felt like it, we would be broke!

It’s like a writer who only writes when he’s inspired. Really?

I’ve written 3 books and I can speak from experience most days I had to make myself

“be inspired.”

I’m a runner and there are some days, I gotta just put on those running shoes and

get out the door before I feel inspired to run my daily route.

Your business grows from the cause and effect, reap what you sow

principle. In other words, You gotta DRIVE your success! And when

you do, you will organically grow an exciting, profitable business;

One that will give you a sense of accomplishment that is even better

than the riches you’ll also experience.

So, let’s use the analogy of you driving a car…

Step #1: Choose what car you want to drive. Let the car represent your

way-of-being and your desired life style. This is what you’re “living into”.

Knowing that everything is created in the imagination, FIRST; you must

begin seeing yourself in this car; this way of being; this quality of life.

Whether you want to drive a luxury car, sports car, or a souped up truck,

YOU GET to DECIDE on what type of car you’re driving.

CLARITY IS POWER!

Don’t wimp out here and don’t make your decision on what others say

or what you think is ‘doable’. Really go deep with yourself and be

authentic to choose a car that bests represents the lifestyle and

way-of-being that inspires you.

So, step #1 is decide on your destination and on the way you want to

get there. That’s your car… Now, the next step is you need to turn the

ignition!

Step #2: Start your car and DRIVE it everyday.

I love road trips! I’m just getting back from a 3 day, 2000 mile road

trip all over California, Oregon, and Washington. These 2000 miles

gave me time to study, think, discern, and most importantly… IMAGINE

(really live out in my mind) my delicious dream life.

I allowed my imagination to go wild with creativity which stretched my

current goals and desires. I fantasized about what I really want and lived

that dream life in the reality of my imagination.

In this state of inspiration, great ideas came to me. Ideas around

marketing, exposure, growing my teams. These ideas were innovative

and matched the vision I was seeing (and feeling) in my imagination.

Then, something incredible began to happen… The people who I was

thinking about partnering with called me! We booked meetings, follow

up, and even a speaking engagement came from those acts of inspiration.

The next step in our car analogy is enjoy the detours and wrong turns on

your path to your ideal life.

Step #3: Enjoy the detours. Lighten up on yourself, already… Geez!

I took some wrong turns on that road trip and even got lost for a bit.

But these detours had me enjoy a hole-in-the-wall and delicious Mexican

restaurant and meet a new friend. I enjoyed being off course as it brought

a new perspective, adventure, and even a much needed cup of coffee!

Stop being so hard on yourself. You waste time and energy sulking in your

error; and you focus too much on yourself! Next time you make a mistake,

notice it, learn from it, and quickly move on with the perspective, “Every

day in every way I’m getting better and better!”

So, that’s my car analogy for choosing, attracting, and driving your success
right in to your ideal life!
