Build Business Profits Lessons from Ted Turner

The surprise for me in watching the interview of Ted Turner (click here) was how much fun he is having. His attitude is very inspiring. For example:

1. When asked why he started CNN he said: why not–I could see the technology was in place with cable and satellites and the major networks were not thinking that way.
2. I see things because I think.
3. I lost my job, my wife, my fortune and grandchild all in the same year. Tragedy will cause you to either break down or break out. I look at life as an adventure. I am not going to fail, I am going to tough it out, I am not going to be lonely again, I am not going to be poor again.

I recalibrated some of my thinking from watching this interview and I think you will as well. Please share what you found most valuable for you.

Success Mastery – Daily Top 5

top5

Those I coach know the three foundation tools I use to help students achieve their ever expanding goals. These are

1 Vision Board
2.Accelerated Accountability Worksheet
3.Financial Plan

2 and 3 are in my classic, time proven Gold Formula format.

Recently I remembered that in 2010 I was emphasizing the use of the Daily Top 5. While this seemed to fade away when I began using the Accelerated Accountability Worksheet which is a weekly time management system I realized the Daily Top 5 should be elevated as part of my own work and I am again coaching students on using this as well.

Now I have a small journal that I can easily carry with me and each day – usually first thing in the morning I am writing my Top 5 – the 5 most important things I want to accomplish that day. Of course these tie to my Vision Board and other tools. However there is one key difference. My Top 5 includes health, self development and relationship goals and often my three foundation tools are mostly business development focused. Having said that I am adjusting the vision board and accelerated accountability worksheet to reflect my health and relationship priorities. Increasingly I am linking all of this to a bigger picture life mission statement which I am still in the process of clarifying.

I am taking the guidance of Les Brown that I heard in a recent interview with him where he talked alot about being able to do more to serve and leave a stronger legacy when he is gone. Now here is a guy who already has made a huge difference in the lives of many. If he is thinking about doing more, I think that is sage advice. I am following it and hope you do as well.

Michael Port On Thinking Big

michael port books
My thoughts on THINKING BIG:

1. When you’re fully self-expressed, fully demonstrating your values and your views, you’ll naturally attract and draw to yourself those you’re best suited to work with, and you’ll push away those you’re not meant to work with.

2. Know this — nothing great, nothing transformative, nothing that ever shaped the common good and inspired others has ever happened except by thinking big.

3. Stand for something (or others will stand on you).

4. Thinking big means transcending our small thoughts. I’m m not smart enough; I can ’ t risk my secure job on some flimflam dream; my parents [spouse, children, friends] won ’ t approve; people will think I’m crazy; nobody will like me anymore; I don’t have the time; I don’t have the energy; I can’t make a difference, I’m only one person; I don’t . .. ; I can’t . . .

5. Inspiring others to think big is perhaps the single most impor tant act of any one individual thinking big.

6. You are more than you know and can do more with less than you think.

7. Thinking big is not about one person thinking big alone on the secluded island of their dreams. It is about one person thinking big and showing family and friends and colleagues and others how to think big, and on it goes.

8. Any revolution, global, local, or personal, is about being fully self – expressed in the face of all the forces that conspire to pacify your drive, your hunger to be the most you can be.

9. A revolution is about one person at a time experiencing their own personal empowerment against an existing, deficient (small thinking) system. The deficient system may be something as big as a whole political system, or more local, like the system of a family, job, or relationship structure. It may just be the way you think about yourself and your capabilities.

10. We pledge to fight consciously every day against the small thoughts that threaten to derail our plans, our aspirations, and our dreams.

11. Think: “Why not me?” instead of “Why me?”

12. It is never too late to abandon our prejudices, to rethink, to think deeply again, again, and again about the world and what is right.

13. The truth is that big thinking is always, always [always, always, always] worth the expenditure of energy.

14. The only reward of small thinking will be paid in the common currency of all small thinking — unaccomplished dreams.

15. Small thoughts fear the future. Big thoughts are the future.

16. The condition for intellectual capital is big thoughts. The condition for spiritual capital is love. The future of big thinking rests exclusively on the combination of both.

17. We cannot (must not) wait for other people to tell us that we’re worthwhile.

18. Our core is that part of us that can never be destroyed no matter what is done to us. We can be beaten and tortured, tormented by others. We can lose everything we own. We can lose the love of our life. But there is a part inside of each of us that cannot be taken away. It is our core and it is rich and abundant.

19. To think big is to know there is no absolute knowing, except the knowledge that big things are possible.

20. Get comfortable with discomfort (if the shoe pinches, it fits).

21. There’s no right first step and no last step. To begin to think big is organic. Once you start it will grow like the seashell, your thoughts expanding ever upward and outward.

* You can find more of these in my book, The Think Big Manifesto.

Thank you Michael – Think Big is the foundation theme of all my coaching. Michael’s work add more power for me and my students.

Success Mastery: Kaizen

Sharing the best ideas for achieving success in all areas of your life.

Success Mastery Fear

Kaizen is the Japanese term meaning continuous incremental improvements. As applies to the goal of Success Mastery, Kaizen means improving every aspect of ourselves continuously. Author Robin Sharma writes in The Monk Who Sold His Ferrrari that those who experience deep happiness daily are prepared to defer short-term pleasure for the sake of long term fulfillment. They attack their weaknesses and fears head -on even if that means dipping into the zone of the unknown brings with it a measure of discomfort. By resolving to improve every aspect of themselves continuously, with time things that were once difficult become easy. Fears that once prevented them from all the happiness, health and prosperity they deserved, fall to the wayside.

Success Mastery Fear

Make a list of everything that is holding you back including what you are afraid of. Take action to address each one head on and dismiss them one at a time. Procrastination is a result of being in fear. For example you may want to start a business, expand your company or seek a promotion. Deep fears about how to proceed, what other people think or fear of not having the money for the resources you feel you need are all very real fears people face each day. Beat those fears down and find you energy and happiness levels sky rocket. I spend more time myself and with coaching students on this topic than anything else.
