Get Your Head in the Game

One of the biggest challenges in meeting any goal, whether it be related to productivity, waking early, changing a habit, exercising, or just becoming happier, is finding the motivation to stick with it.

 If you can stick with a goal for long enough, you’ll almost always get there eventually. It just takes patience and motivation. Motivation is the key, but it’s not always easy, day in and day out, to find that motivation.

One way to get you there quicker, is with another person, a coach.

Individuals in all circumstances can and will reach any goal that they want to achieve - it all starts in your mind.  So, participate and “Get your Head in the Game” and focus to achieve your goals. Motivation is the key!

Creating a 21st Century Workforce

The Be WUCA! Way uses five qualities of the entrepreneurial mindset to build a 21st Century Workforce. Intention, Attention, Passion, Belief, and Growth and Expansion. When you have products that are relevant to customers that provide a solution to a problem...you will be attracting them to you rather than chasing after them all the time.

Searching for Your Eagle

What level of leader are you?

  • Eagles always make things happen
  • Eagles see and seize opportunities
  • Eagles influence the opinions and actions of others
  • Eagles add value to you and to the organization
  • Eagles draw eagles to them
  • Eagles provide ideas which help the organization
  • Eagles posses an uncommon great attitude
  • Eagles live up to their word

John Maxwell talks about his “Five Levels of Leadership” in  his books.  Where do you land as a  leader?  What kind of leader do you follow and respect?

POSITION Rights

Influence will not extend beyond the lines of your job description. People follow because they have to.  The longer you stay here, the higher the turnover and the lower the morale.

PERMISSION Relationships

People follow because they want to.  People will follow you beyond your stated authority.  This level allows work to be fun. Caution:  Staying too long on this level without rising will cause highly motivated people to become restless.

PRODUCTION Results

People follow because of what you have done for the organization.   This is where success is sensed by most people.  They like you and what you are doing.  Problems are fixed with very little effort because of momentum.

PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT Reproduction

People follow because of what you have done for them. This is where long-range growth occurs.  Your commitment to developing leaders will insure ongoing growth to the organization and to people.  Do whatever you can to achieve and stay on this level.

PERSONHOOD Respect

People follow because of who you are and what you represent. This step is reserved for leaders who have spent years growing people and organizations.  Few make it.  Those who do are bigger than life.

You want to choose a level that you are comfortable with to lead.  Always strive to move up the list to become the best leader you can. Leadership is all about getting other people to become what they can become.  Give a hand-up and you will receive rewards that you could not imagine.

Discover Your Purpose Through Be WUCA! Coaching

When 10 years from now is over, will you look back and wonder "where did those 10 years go?" Will you be asking yourself the question of "why am I still doing what I am doing?"

Whether you do something different or not, ten years from now will happen anyway. The choice you have to make immediately is that you can discover your purpose now and live it in the next 10 years or you can wait the same 10 years and look back and ask "why am I still doing what I am doing?"

Discovering your purpose is one of the most fulfilling exercises that you can do. Living your purpose is the most fulfilling life that you can live. When you live your purpose, you will help other people discover and live theirs.

Start now! Take some time now to ask yourself, "Am I living my purpose?"

 Score each statement with 1- low and 5 – high

 ‗  I recognize what I am good at doing.

‗  I fully utilize my most enjoyed skills and interests at work.

‗  My work furthers issues that I care deeply about.

‗  I am making a difference through my work in the world.

‗  I view most workdays with enthusiasm.

‗  I have developed my own philosophy on life and success.

‗  I take the necessary risks to live my philosophy.

‗  I feel a sense of meaning and purpose in my life.

‗  I have written goals that relate to my purpose.

‗  I live my life now instead of hoping that life will work out someday.

The higher the total, the closer you are to living your purpose.

 Find your purpose as an individual: what is the best use of your time, talent and passion? Have a conversation with your coach about your occupation. 

Why do I have the job I have?

Who does my work serve?

What do they do with what I provide?

Do they in turn, help others with what I give them?

Is there integrity in what I do for a living?

If I could be doing anything I wanted to do, assured that all my living expenses and material needs and desires would somehow be fulfilled, would I be working where I currently am employed or operate?

Are there any negative aspects to my work? Can I change any negative aspects?

What is positive about my work?

Can I achieve my purpose only in this job?

Do I wake up in the morning excited for the day, or do I dread what is ahead of me?

If I could wake up every morning, excited to face the day and eager to get to work, what would that day look like?

Decide to have a Be WUCA!(c) coaching session. It just might be the best 10 year investment that you could ever make.

The “NO DRAMA” Club

School is back in session, workers are back from vacation, and families are getting back into their usual routines. Everything is in place including all the drama that goes along with students and adults.

Is it one of those days where all you hear is someone else’s whine, “Did you hear about what she did?” “Do you know how he made me feel when he said that?” “I can’t believe that they wore that with that outfit!”  "She/he stole my boyfriend/girlfriend!" “I got back at them for spreading that rumor about me!”

Drama, drama, drama! Some can’t get enough, some have had enough.

If you have had it with drama in your life or having people around that need to create drama, here is a great method to get rid of it all.

Whenever you are around a person who wants to create drama, write down one thing every day that you appreciate about that person and tell them what you appreciate about them.

Answer these three questions –

  • What do I value about the person causing the drama?
  • What are their interests, needs, and desires?
  • How can I be more generous toward them?

Regardless of whether or not they deserve it, and regardless of what you might get out of it yourself, write down your answers to the questions and then tell them.

You will be surprised how fast the drama disappears. It will be gone.

You see, people that you appreciate will respond in a positive manner and appreciate you.

When you help others to discover their purpose and passion, they will respond in a very different way toward you. There are two great days in a person’s life:

  • The day a person is born and
  • the day they discover why.

When you help a person do that, you will change their life and they will not want to be in the middle of drama either. Help them go on a bad habit diet and get rid of the “Whine” flu.

When you change the way you look at people, the people that you look at change!

When you are:

  • Welcoming – smile!  A smile will open the door to great relationships.
  • Understanding – listen! When you listen to someone it shows you care.
  • Comfortable - be friendly! You will meet their needs.
  • Appreciative – show gratitude! Be grateful for who they are and your relationship with them.

In other words, to get rid of the drama in your life:

Be WUCA!(c)

Formula to Change Your Life

Have you ever wished that you could know a formula for changing something in your life that you wanted to change?  I am going to give you a formula that all you have to do is insert the variable that you want changed. Your Body   +  Your Brain +   Your Beliefs and Habits  = Your Results

Your body is your computer hardware, your brain is your operating system, it can be a mac or a pc, and your beliefs and habits are the software that you use to progam your system.  The system that you have is only programmed to do what you tell it to do. So if you want to change something about you, you have to change your programming, change the software that you use.

You have a conscious mind and you have a subconscious mind.

Your conscious mind:

  • Accepts or reject any idea or goal.
  • Imagines and decide what you want to achieve.
  • Determines what actions you need to take.
  • Discusses your goals and dreams and cause you to get excited about them.
  • Gets you to take action for a short period of time.

Your subconscious mind:

  • Controls 96% of all your decisions in your emotions, perceptions and behaviors.
  • Controls all of your life supporting systems.
  • Can not tell the real from the imagined.
  • Immediately will act upon any idea impressed upon it.

The reason that it takes time to change something about us is that we do not maintain our focus on our change.  We want immediate results and when we don’t see any change, we give up and tell ourselves that this stuff does not work.

You have to persist in your change to be successful.  You have to  reprogram your computer to start living the change.  It takes 30 – 90 days to change a habit.

Now put emotion to what you want to change. Your emotional mind is 35% more powerful than your logical mind. Put emotion to it and you will get to your goal much faster. Emotion will hijack your logical mind and move you toward whatever and wherever you have emotion attached.

Your subconscious mind always moves toward your thinking. Keep focused on the change and persist until you are successful.

Find yourself a coach to help you focus on what you want to change.  Athletes need someone to guide them to success.  If you want to be successful, do what successful people do.

We Have Always Done It This Way!

A mother and daughter were preparing a roast for a family dinner. The daughter cut the ends off of the roast before putting it in the roaster, just as she was taught. She asked her mother, “why do we cut the ends off of the roast before we cook it?” “I am not sure,” said the mother. “I guess it makes it taste better, but let’s go ask grandma.” So they went to ask grandma. “Grandma?” asked the mother. “why did you teach me to cut the ends off of the roast before cooking it?”

“Because it makes the roast taste better,” responded Grandma. “Besides, that is the way my mother taught me. Let’s go ask her.”

So the three of them went to ask the one who started the cutting of the ends off of the roast.

“Great Grandmother, why do you cut the ends off of the roast before you cook it? Does it make the roast taste better?"

"Heavens no,” said the great grandmother. “I cut the ends off of the end of the roast because that is the only way I could get it to fit into the pan I used.”

Sometimes we have to look at the history of why we do things. Is it really necessary to continue some of the things that we do or do we do them just because we are comfortable doing it that way?

We do things just because we have always done it that way before.

When you keep doing the things to get what you get, you keep getting the things you got.

You can change without improving but you cannot improve without changing.

Plan from Imagination, not Memory.

As Yogi Bera said; “THE FUTURE AIN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE!” For hundreds of years, the world of business stayed pretty much the same, so what you learned from experience could be used for a long, long time. In fact, experience was your insurance policy. It almost guaranteed success.

If you are to grow and prosper in sustainable ways, entrepreneurial thinking needs to be valued and encouraged at all levels of leadership. You can no longer use the term “WE’VE NEVER DONE IT THAT WAY BEFORE!!!!” It takes hard work and effort to change, as change does not come easily.

Experience is not as helpful as it used to be.  The world is changing so rapidly that your experience may not always be a very good guide for the future.

Not convinced? Just take a look at a few facts:

Today, the body of knowledge known to mankind doubles every 907 days.

Our computing ability and capacity doubles every 14 months.

We once marveled at the advanced technology on Apollo 13.  Today your car has more technology than that rocket.

The first UNIVAC computer filled an entire room, but today your wristwatch has more power than that computer.

The average 21-year-old today can expect 11 to 14 jobs and two to three major career changes.

The average 21-year-old today can expect to spend more time taking care of his parents than his children.

Right now we have more people living on the planet than have ever died in the past.

You, your business, or your organization is not immune to the change process. You cannot be a leadership organization that is based upon traditions. You need to use imagination as new directions and partnerships are being developed. Will this make some people nervous, uncomfortable and complain?  Yes! Will it be worth it?  In my experience, yes!

Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial thinking involves seeing opportunities and having the ability to take and manage risks. It can emerge from industry experience or happen by accident coming from a hobby. It may result from developing local ideas or bringing new entrepreneurial talent into the community and requires individual as well as community attitude, vision, and passion to create.

You have two choices: choose to be proactive and be determined to make things happen, or be reactive and complain about things that happen to you because you choose to sit back and watch.

Economic and entrepreneurial development requires innovative thinking and new ways of doing  things as well as constantly changing and developing leadership.

Development requires all people in the organization to work together for a common vision.  Development is an attitude, as well as action.

You will hear people express how happy they are for change to take place, and those who complain because of change. You can make up your own mind how to react to change, but one thing is certain, the world is changing at a faster rate than ever before and there are no signs that point to it slowing down.

What will you do to lead this new type of thinking?  Refer to your experiences when appropriate and learn from them, but consider Wayne Gretsky’s approach to planning. As one of the greatest hockey stars of all time, he was asked what made him so successful.  He said, “I SKATE TO WHERE I THINK THE PUCK WILL BE.”

In today’s world, you have to go out and meet the opportunity and work to make it happen.

Together we can create success in your life.

Appreciation Stops Negative Thoughts!

"How do I stop my negative thoughts?" is a question that Ihave been asked many times. If you have ever asked this question, then you will feel such enormous relief in knowing the answer, because it is so simple. How do you stop negative thoughts?

You show appreciation and plant good thoughts!

When you try to stop negative thoughts, you are focusing on what you don't want - negative thoughts - and you will attract an abundance of them. They can never disappear if you are focused on them. The "stop" part is irrelevant - the negative thoughts are your focus. It doesn't matter if you are trying to stop negative thoughts or control them or push them away, the result is the same. Your focus is on negative thoughts, and by the law of attraction, you are inviting more of them to you.

The truth is always simple and it is always easy. To stop negative thoughts, just plant good thoughts! Deliberately plant good thoughts!

You plant good thoughts by making it a daily practice to appreciate all the things in your day. Appreciate your health, your car, your home, your family, your job, your friends, your surroundings, your meals, your pets, and the magnificent beauty of the day.

Appreciate, compliment, praise, and give thanks for all things. Every time you say "Thank you," it is a good thought! As you plant more and more good thoughts, the negative thoughts will be wiped out. Why? Because your focus is on good thoughts, and what you focus on, you attract.

So don't give any attention to negative thoughts. Don't worry about them. If any come, make light of them, shrug them off, and let them be your reminder to deliberately think more good thoughts now.

The more appreciating thoughts you can plant in a day, the faster your life will be utterly transformed into all good. If you spend only one day speaking of good things and saying "Thank you" at every single opportunity, you will not believe your tomorrow. Deliberately thinking good thoughts is exactly like planting seeds. As you think good thoughts you are planting good seeds inside you, and the  universe will transform those seeds into a garden of paradise.

How will the garden of paradise appear? As your life!

BE WUCA!(c) Companies Hold Employee Turnover to a Minimum

When you are a BE WUCA!(c) employer, you will hold down employee turnover, employee grumblings to a minimum, and build productivity to new levels. WHY? Appreciation goes a long way and produces maximum benefits!

No, Millennials Don’t Expect a Trophy For Every Little Thing They Do at Work#more-26058.

BE WUCA!

When you create a BE WUCA environment, customers will return, communities will grow, strangers will become friends, and disagreements will decrease. We invite you to “BE WUCA!” A way to treat others!

For example: Many communities are not growing because they are not practicing BE WUCA! If you have more people that were born and raised, native-born, in your community than have moved in from outside of your community you might not be as welcoming as you think you are.

How do others want to be treated is answering the question of how do you want to be treated?  What will make me feel:

WELCOME

UNDERSTOOD

COMFORTABLE

APPRECIATED

Welcome means to feel at home.  What will make others feel at home in my presence? Do you have a look of approachability?  Welcome others when they come into your  circumstances and meet them at their circumstance.

Understood is getting to understand what they want before you have them understand what you want.  Understanding is valuing another’s point-of-view, meeting them more than halfway in their viewpoint and developing empathy for their circumstance. As Stephen Covey says, "seek first to understand then to be understood."

Comfortable is a personal feeling.  When a person is comfortable, they have developed a sense of trust of you. Building that relationship takes integrity and following through with your promises and commitments. Giving them a feeling that they would like to return and develop a deeper relationship.

Appreciated is the most valued feeling a person desires. Most employees want appreciation from their employers more than they want an increase in money. It is just plain Gratitude in Action. Just like the saying goes; “a pat on the back goes so much farther than a kick in the pants!”

BE WUCA!  A process to grow your business and turn customers into valued friends. A process that will focus your business, community, family, and church from a maintaining strategy to a growth strategy.

Let us help you create your new growth.
