“Creating the dream to possibility” with Steve Rodgers

Steve Rodgers says the first step in transforming your dream into a possibility is taking the vision that’s in your heart and head, and getting it down on paper. Then create a plan for how you’re going to make it happen. Steve says we should get into the habit of writing goals and business plans, and getting things on paper. There’s something almost “magical” that happens when we write things down. Dreams have a way of materializing, and people are more likely to buy into your vision when it’s clear and articulated on paper.

“Go Beyond Average” with Brian Fisher

If you want to be successful in business or life, you must move beyond average. Many people fall short because they do not have this mentality.

“Pick a Lane” with Brian Fisher

Brian Fisher says focus is a difficult thing to master. When we multitask, we get sloppy and careless. So it is critical for our success to be disciplined and focus only on one thing. Put everything else (email, social media, etc.) on a shelf when you are working on that one thing. In life, when we fail to focus on what we are doing the effects might not be apparent or visible until the damage is done.

“Don’t Build on Sand” with Brian Fisher

Brian Fisher says it’s crucial to know your strong personal “why.” You must know why you want to be successful and why you want to be an entrepreneur because it serves as the foundation for everything you want to do in life. If you build a house on sand, it’s not going to weather the storm, but if you build your house on a solid foundation, you can put up with a lot of storms, critics and naysayers, and the challenges and adversities you’re going to face.

“Protect Your Personal Power Hours” with Marcia Ramsland

Professional organizer Marcia Ramsland talks about your individual “power hours,” or the time of day you work at peak capacity, focus, and productivity. Typically it’s one to two hours, and you have to know when they occur. Otherwise, you’ll be zigging and zagging and reacting all day. Determine a particular, intentional point that is a power time in your week.

Also, when is your best time where you’re most alert to talk to people? Plan meetings during these times when you’ll be most ready to interact with others. Then, and probably most importantly, what is your determined relationship time with your loved ones? It’s critical for success that we put an emphasis and guard those power hours in our lives while everything else funnels around it.
