Believe and Act to Get Back in the Race

Do you recall Frank Sinatra's hit song, That's Life? Think of the lyrics, "pick myself up and get back in the race." This youtube video has good advice for all of us.

Many people would say they are happy that 2009 is behind them, that last year was a challenging time. How can you ensure 2010 is not a repeat of 2009 but instead much better?

BELIEVE AND ACT. You must believe that it is possible and then take proper, positive actions to make it happen. Every year I select a theme to focus my efforts. I don't recall ever choosing the same theme twice, until this year. "Believe and Act" remains as the theme because this is exactly what's needed to "get back in the race."

REGENERATE. Recall from my research and book, Pursuit of Passionate Purpose, that Passionate Pursuers are like sunflowers. They have the nine traits that align with each letter of the word SUNFLOWER. The letter R stands for "regenerative." Successful people don't let things keep them down — they rebound. A regenerative nature allows Passionate Pursuers to revive, renew, and produce again despite adversity, setbacks, and obstacles. Resilience is a common trait of the extremely wealthy. See my blog entry, Think Like a Billionaire.

PRACTICAL POINTERS. Here's what to do to get back in the race in order to position you and your company for the big win.
Assess what worked and what didn't work last year. What progress did you make?
Decide to revise your attitude. You must believe that everything is possible. Believe, believe, believe that you can pick yourself up and get on top.
Revise your personal and corporate Strategic Plan. What is your vision for the future? Where do you want to go? What actions will get you there? Go back to the basics, yet get creative.
Act. Then do what you need to do. Get help and don't try to do it alone.

It's never too late! Schedule a Strategic Planning session. Contact me today and let's explore how to get you back in the race.
