Good morning!

Opportunity (noun)

  1. a favourable juncture of circumstances
  2. a good chance for advancement or progress.

Opportunity is like luck, you have to work hard to create it, and is the result of your habits. Life doesn’t just happen to you. It’s all about choices and how you respond to every situation. If you are in the habit of continually making bad choices, disaster often occurs.

Successful people have successful habits – unsuccessful people don’t!

Habits can be changed any time you choose to do so, but they wont change overnight. If you’ve had a habit for 30 years it might take a year or more to break it and ensure that, even under stress, your new successful habit controls your choices.

The culture of living for now and putting off payment until later has become a habit for many people. Instant gratification is not a successful habit and one you must work at resisting to have a successful, healthy and long life.

Have a terrific week and keep an eye out for the opportunities, no matter how big or small, that will propel you to success.

Best Regards,

Hello there,

Luck.

Some say it is when preparation meets opportunity and others… “you lucky bugger!”

However it is seen, luck is something every successful person can claim has helped them get to where they are today.

So you want to be lucky? What are you prepared to do to become lucky? How about saying to yourself each morning, “I am a lucky person and today is another lucky day”.

Successful people know the other half of luck is discipline. Would you have the discipline to say this affirmation every morning if you knew it would make you even luckier?

Successful people enjoy meeting and being with other people.

You can increase your chance of having a lucky encounter that will change your life by;

  • Telephoning friends you haven’t seen for awhile to ask what’s happening in their life

  • Make the time to be at the party you didn’t think you had time to be at.

  • Find something that really interests you and find others interested in the same thing

  • Say “Hi” instead of rushing on

  • Sign up for an evening class.

For example; go a different way to work or start a luck diary. Everyday write down lucky things that happened to you during that day. The next morning read the lucky things that happened to you. You will be surprised how lucky you are.

Have a lucky week ahead!

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Hi there!

This week we are back to excellence.

There are many parts to being “excellent” because after keeping promises, building trust, and following up the next part is doing an “excellent” job for your client.

EXCELLENCE CAN BE ATTAINED WHEN YOU:

Bearing in mind that excellence is never a destination – it’s a journey. We can only constantly seek to improve everything we do and thus continue the endless and extraordinarily rewarding pursuit of being “excellent in everything we do”.

This process can commence and continue if:

  1. CARE MORE THAN OTHERS THINK IS WISE.

    We must care without exception in terms of the difference we can make to all those people and businesses we have the opportunity to interact with.

  2. RISK MORE THAN OTHERS THINK IS SAFE.

    The fundamental difference between a professional and an amateur could be in their desire to risk everything they do in the pursuit of constant improvement.

  3. DREAM MORE THAN OTHERS THINK IS PRACTICAL.

    In the constant pursuit of excellence dreaming and visualisation become the cornerstones of improvement, however, even though many people can dream, only the few who believe unconditionally receive the extraordinary rewards attached to their dreams.

  4. EXPECT MORE THAN OTHERS THINK IS POSSIBLE.

    Once you care, risk and dream (believe) you then have the right to expect and receive more than others think is possible.

So care more, risk more, dream more and expect more and you will be “excellent”!

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Good morning!

Happiness is different for everyone but it has the same result every time someone feels it – a huge smile 🙂

Happiness can be found in having clear goals, supportive relationships, being fit and healthy, job satisfaction and the All Blacks winning.

Smile at someone today. Look up. Is there someone you could smile at now? Do it!

You will notice they can’t help but smile back. Boom! You’ve just made their day, and yours, a little better.

Have a happy week and SMILE!

Hello there,

Let me brighten up your Monday morning with some examples of peoples perseverance paying off.

  • Dr. Seuss’s first children’s book was rejected by 23 publishers.

  • Apple’s first microcomputers were turned down by H-P and Atari.

  • Vince Lombardi didn’t become a head coach in the NFL till he was 47.

  • In his first three years in the auto business, Henry Ford went bust twice.

  • Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.

  • Einstein’s Ph.D. dissertation was rejected as irrelevant and fanciful.

  • Frank Woolworth saw the failure of three of his first five chain stores.

Perseverance is another way of saying commitment, and what distinguishes these people from others, is that they kept their forward motion and didn’t let something like failure stop them in their tracks.

So don’t let the weather we had over the weekend, keep moving forward and have a successful week.

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Hi there,

This week – Manufacturing Success.

Success in any field does not happen by chance. There are processes that generate outstanding performance no matter what field of endeavour we talk about.

So, what is the routine that works for you in making sure you not only create and sustain success but multiply it over and over again?

Let’s look at what successful people do. They have a routine that they follow every single time. They use their checklist not occasionally but in every single performance. Great golfers, great cricketers, great dancers, great singers, great salespeople – they all follow a process which works for them.

This will be their own way of creating, sustaining and multiplying their success thoughts.

So what do successful sales people regularly do as far as their routine is concerned?

  • They surround themselves with other successful people – get into a group.

  • They believe unconditionally in their ability to succeed – and reinforce that every day.

  • They dream, they visualise and they regularly talk about their successes – I need to do this more.

There is a simple and brilliant way to achieve all of these three things in one easy action. At the commencement of every day, pick up the phone and call one of your best clients and just say hello. Let’s call it the “manufacturing success call”.

They will be delighted to hear from you, after all, you have contributed to their success. They will reinforce in their conversations with you that you have already succeeded in making a difference, which will reinforce your belief that you have the ability to succeed, and they will turn your dreams and your visualisations into proven belief because the person at the other end of the phone actually exists.

So, get into the habit of manufacturing success. All manufacturing systems have an effective production process.

Have a successful and positive week.

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Good morning,

You might remember we have a government in New Zealand and as usual, the one that is in power is being judged harshly in some quarters. I don’t pay any attention to the news these days but it always seems to get to me and it’s always bad 🙁

There’s a story I like to pull out at times like this and it illustrates perfectly we shouldn’t judge others before we know the whole story. As the greatest President of the United States once said about the South, “they are just what we would be in their situation.”

Judge yourself, not others. Always.

The Story: A State of Affairs

A bus stops and two guys get on. They sit down and engage in an animated conversation. The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:

“Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta time.”

“You foul-mouthed swine,” retorted the lady indignantly. “In this country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”

“Hey, coola down lady,” said the man. “Who talkin’ abouta sexa?” I’m a justa tellin’ my frienda how to spella Mississippi.

Have a terrific week Glenn and remember before you pass judgement, they might just be learning how to spell Mississippi.

Finding Inspiration

Hello there!

No inspiration?

There is the odd Monday when inspiration apparently deserts me and I sit at my desk wondering what to write about.

No ideas come and the clock ticks on. Panic sets in because I feel obliged to get something written and out the door by 9am. I promised and now several thousand people expect me to keep that promise. No pressure – yeah right.

At these times I find I need to dig deep, knuckle down (sorry for the cliches) and work. Search for things, read, take time to think, have a coffee, call a friend and back myself. “Your ideas are good.”

Something happens when you do that. Ideas pop into your head and you feel happier, inspired. You keep working and the ideas flow.

Jim Rohn said, “Labor gives birth to ideas.” That is very true and today’s MondayMotivator wouldn’t have been written without some hard work.

Inspiration never deserts us. It’s always there below the surface waiting to be uncovered. Sometimes a light brush moves the cover away and sometimes a pick axe is needed. But it’s always there.

I needed a shovel this week and used a coffee, a think, the internet and pacing up and down the hallway to remove the cover. It didn’t take long to find inspiration and something to write about once I did that.

So this week when you think inspiration has deserted you, remember it’s still there. You just have to work out whether you need a brush or a digger to uncover it.

Have an inspired week,

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Start with what you have.

If you want to be successful you at anything you have to: start with what you have.

To often we look outside ourselves for things to help us be successful. We go on a course, or at least look at going on a course. We look for a piece we think is missing. We think it might be many pieces.

But to be successful to have to start somewhere and that somewhere is you. It’s your environment, where you live, where you work.

You need to take stock of what you have and leverage it.

Here’s a quick list of what I have to start with this week:

  1. An email list.

  2. Staff who are smarter than me.

  3. Good coffee a short walking distance from the office.

  4. A brain that thinks.

  5. Hands that write.

  6. You reading this MondayMotivator.

You have a lot to start with to do anything.

Pause now and write down what you want to do…

Now write a list of what you have right now. when you have finished make a short list of what will help you do what you want. Make a shorter list of what can help this month. Now this week. Now today.

Now, and here’s the tough part because you don’t believe me that this will work yet, do that thing you can do today now. Not after morning tea, not after lunch, NOW!

I’m doing it to.

Have a great week.

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley

Keys To Gaining The Competitive Edge Over Your Competition

Mōrena!

Highly creative and competitive people tend to have fluid, flexible, adaptive minds. There are three statements that people can make easily and which you learn by regular practice.

  1. Admit It When You Are Wrong

    The first is simply, “I was wrong.” If you’re wrong, admit it and get on to the solution or the next step.

  2. Face Up To Mistakes

    Second, people think that it is a sign of weakness to say, “I made a mistake.” Really though, it is actually a sign of mental maturity, personal strength and individual character. Remember, everybody makes mistakes every single day.

  3. Be Flexible With New Information

    The third statement that creative people use easily is, “I changed my mind.” It is amazing how many uncomfortable situations people get into and stay in because they are unwilling or afraid to admit that they’ve changed their minds.

Be willing to cut your losses.

If you get new information or if you find that you feel differently about a previous decision, accept that you have changed your mind and don’t let anyone or anything back you into a corner. If a decision does not serve your best interests as you see them now, have the ego-strength and the courage to “cut your losses,” to change your mind and then get on to better things.

Keys To Gaining The Competitive Edge Over Your Competition:

  • Out-think your competition

  • Be better prepared, more organised

  • Know how to utilise your time to get maximum results

  • Have a game plan; Plan before you act

  • Present your product to your clients better than your competition

  • Sell benefits of your product, your company, and yourself

  • Find client’s needs and aggressively satisfy them

  • Know what will motivate your clients to buy from you now

  • Maintain a positive mental attitude about yourself, your job, your product and your company

Spend a bit more time getting your game plan ready and see what a difference it will make to productivity and creativity today. Have a terrific week.

Best Regards,

Glenn Edley
