Need Help? Look Within First


After eating a turkey and dressing sandwich for breakfast, I am raring to go! For those of you who wrote and asked where the article was last week, I appreciate the fact that you look for it! I apologize for missing it, and to make up for it I have posted on my website a web log and pictures of the barn raising party we had last week. Look for the link on the front page of www.creativemasterminds.com.

Now for this week's article. Need Help? Look Within!

Many of the calls and emails I receive ask the same questions. People want to know how to do better in their lives. For some it is money, others want balance, and for some it is happiness.

Over the years I have come to realize that there is nothing special or secretive about the answers to these challenges. However, the solutions are not easy. The solutions are readily available. In fact, we all ultimately have the answers within us! We either do not recognize this fact, or do not want to recognize it because it would mean we would have to act and this we do not want to do.Someone called from a network marketing program to say her health products business of five years does not have the growth or produce the income she desires. As an intelligent business owner, she had researched to find the best methods of working her business and paid a lot of money for a course in how to do effective business presentations. She also had been trained in the management of her business, from utilizing leads to scheduling her time.

The call revealed she had never even practiced her presentation skills, and only worked her business when she felt like it. And she wondered why she was not more successful!

I can tell you that we all know instinctively what to do in most situations. Our problem is in the doing. If you are not making enough money in your life, you have two choices. Spend less or make more. If you are unhappy with yourself, stop and find out why. Then take steps to correct it.

If balance is what you are looking for -then balance! These are not easy changes and I do not mean to be casual here. Changes mean action. Action means work. Many of us are not willing to put in the work to see the change through.

Certainly a Coach can be a great help to help maintain clarity as you go through these changes, but a Coach does not have the ability to wave a magic wand and make things happen for you! If that were so I would wave my wand for me!Remember the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!

Look for the answers within you - then act! A s always,Your online Coach and Friend,Miami Phillips
