Dreams don't come true because a person does something well once and a while...Dreams come true when someone performs with excellence day after day. -John Maxwell

Sticky Note of the Day: “Dreams don’t come true because a person does something well once and a while…Dreams come true when someone performs with excellence day after day.” -John Maxwell

 

So really John, what you are saying is doing something consistently, everyday, no matter how small, is better than something big every now and then. Guess the way I look at it is “eat an apple a day vs 30 apples in one day!” (Whew that would be a TON of apples if you did it all in one day). Okay I get it.

Mr. Maxwell also speaks about how he makes sure he does 5 things, just 5 everyday. Rain or shine, holidays, birthdays, weekends, everyday, 5 things to assist him in his goals, dreams, aspirations and development of himself and his leadership. Would you like to know what he does?

 

 

John Maxwell’s Rule of 5:

1. Reads

2. Files his ideas

3. Asks Questions

4. Thinks

5. Writes

That’s it. They aren’t huge. They aren’t hard but over time it adds up…BIG TIME! He has been doing this for years and it has become a habit. He is someone who performs with excellence day after day in these 5 key areas. After knowing this it makes sense how to date he has written more than 60 books and has been featured multiple times in SUCCESS Magazine, not to mention all of his speaking engagements and training new trainers.

How does this fit into your world? What 5 things or even 1, 2, 3 things would you commit to do, everyday if it meant you could turn your dreams into reality? Are your dreams worth it? It reminds me of the old saying “It you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” These 5 things for John Maxwell are part of his plan to achieve what he desires in this lifetime.

Can’t think of anything at the moment? Use John’s 5 things. It works, just tailor it to you in terms of what to read, filing ideas/quotes/thoughts/messages/etc. Make it your own, do it consistently and in the direction of your dreams then watch them become reality.

Easy to do, easy not to do. How bad do you want it?

 

Dream Big my friends,

Shay

Find out what you do well then find a way to do that for the rest of your life. Sticky note for today:

 Find out what you do WELL then find a way to do that for the rest of your life.

 

Yesterday I had an amazing meeting with 2 leaders making a difference in our school system. One was telling a story about a young woman, from a tough neighborhood and school that had been receiving D’s and F’s on her report card in high school. Their organization had gone in with a health program and the on-site coordinator and this young woman really connected on a mentor-mentee basis. It was in that class that the student received A’s across the board. This program was assisting students to find out what they did well and encouraged them to go after their dreams. This student ended up getting a scholarship after a panel interview to go to culinary school.

How POWERFUL is that!

What our school system deemed as a child who was below average in school found something, was encouraged and guided toward the thing that she was passionate about and she went after it!

What do you do well? What are you passionate about? What would you do if time and money were no object…what would you be doing tomorrow? What is your hobby? What would you be doing the rest of your life if you got paid for it or not? Whatever that is (and you may deserve to practice “dreaming” again) do it, start it, pick it back up again, do it in your free time, in your spare time and who knows…it may just become your new profession.

Dream BIG my friends!

Make things happen note

Make Things Happen!

Make things happen note There comes a time when you have the gut, intuition feeling of

“It’s time to Make Things Happen!”

No more sliding through life, no more slouching around, no more “waiting”. 

It’s Go Time!

That time is NOW!

It reminds me of the saying “If your ship doesn’t come out to you, swim out to it.”

Yep, that is where we are now. I feel it. Do you?

I have been interacting with more and more people lately who are also feeling this driving force to take action, to change what they have been doing, to strive after their passions and just “KNOW” that all will fall into place. Granted it is scary, it is outside our comfort zones but it “feels” right.

Last year was a Year of Experiences for me, this year is a Year of Prosperous Opportunity. It is amazing how the simple act of setting an intention, sharing it with those around you, those of influence and affluence, will end up in an amazing snowball effect that you could not have possibly imagined. However it will never happen if you don’t start to take some action. MAKE THINGS HAPPEN! It’s time. There is no better time than right now to get that snowball rolling. Just pick up some snow, be at the top of a hill, create a ball, then get it started on its path. Now that you can visualize that in your minds eye, how does that relate to the “real world” right?

snowballSnowball-That’s your idea, your intention, your thoughts and dreams, your passion. Resting there in your hands. An inanimate object with no force acting upon it currently. Just sitting there for you to admire and look upon.

Hill-The launch pad, the starting place. It’s where you stand, right here, right now.

Snow ballStart the rolling process- Taking your idea, your passion, your intention and putting it into play in the world. Allow it to interact with others. Share it with those around you, share your passion, share your vision, explain it so they see what you see so they can share it with those around them & explain it as you have done.

That is Making Things Happen.

I’m not saying you must roll your snowball down the hill today but I am urging you to pick up some snow, hold it in your hand, grab some more snow and start to build your snowball.

I am excited to hear about where you are in the process of Making Things Happen.

Enjoy the Ride!

Shay

From 16 yr old Ashley Monroe: My Message to Everyone at My School: ‘You’re Beautiful’

1

I recently saw this AMAZING post of a young woman who is making a difference in her school by simply using Sticky Notes and a wonderfully positive message…see orginal post here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ashley-monroe/my-message-to-everyone-at_b_2563941.html

From Ashley Monroe.
16-year-old from Massachusetts

This is a picture of something I did at my school last year. I wrote out 1,986 sticky notes. Each said, “You’re beautiful,” and I stuck one to every locker in my entire school.
r-YOUREBEAUTIFUL-large570

It was almost unbearable to listen people put themselves down every day. They would say things like, “I’m ugly” or “No one likes me.” To me, that wasn’t the truth. For at least one day, I wanted everyone to know that someone thought they were beautiful.

It took me over 6 hours to write all of the notes, and an hour to stick them with the help of one other friend. It wasn’t my original plan to tell people that I had done it, but word got out after I had been called to the Dean’s office. They found me through the school’s video surveillance system.

After being sat down in the office and explaining everything that had happened, there was talk of a possible 3-day suspension from school. When I went back to my classroom, my teacher asked me what they said, and I told her. This is how the rest of the students found out. Throughout the entire day word of the possible suspension circulated, and a group of students came together and formed a petition. They passed the petition around school.

In the end, it had over 600 signatures, from both students AND faculty.

It amazed me that people would do that for me. For one day, I truly felt beautiful. And for one day, I managed to make every other kid in my school feel beautiful, as well.

A few days later, after the incident was not as new, a complete stranger approached me. What she said to me was shocking.

“That day, I was planning on killing myself. I had given up completely on society, but because of you I didn’t. You gave me hope. Thank you.”

What’s more amazing than that is the fact that today she has become one of my best friends.

Thank you Ashley for being a leader in your school and for changing the lives of many.
You are the epitome of a “Stand Up And Lead” Leader.
Much Love,
Shay

Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time,
for that is the stuff life is made of.”

We all have a gift, it is the ones who follow it that truly prosper…in more ways than one, and I don’t just mean materially prosper…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Well Said Mr. Jobs.
I find it interesting for me personally that every time I tend to stray away from my purpose and don’t follow my Intuition things arise that I really don’t want, but when I listen to my heart and my intuition everything aligns and opportunities present themselves that normally would not occur. It takes courage, but I believe you can make it happen for yourself as well. :-)

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Today I challenge you. I challenge you to step into the sunshine, to “Go for it” as the sticky below from Chris Teehee suggests. You are worth it and the world deserves to see you shine. It is when you shine that you unconsciously give others the power within themselves to shine as well. It is a ripple effect that starts when you decide to Stand Up And Lead for yourself, for the power and passion you have within to make a difference for you and thus the world at large. It starts with one, why not you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I heard this from a good friend the other day and I loved it so much that it truly deserved to be on a sticky note. :-)
