Holiday Food For Thought

A time for CHANGE chances are you are not happy with where you are in life. Sure, you may feel that you are doing better off than many other people but something deep inside you tells you that your capable of much more. This is not going to be some sales preachy marketing email, this is a straight-from-the-heart post that may blow your mind and reveal why you may have continued to fail these last few years.
The main traits that separates the weak from the strong and the poor from the rich is determination, the drive to succeed, and taking consistent steps in reaching goals. Some people are born lucky, they are exposed to better opportunities and have an easier time making their way to success.
This is a fact, but that does not mean that you have to accept it. If you take one thing away from this post it should be this:"You are the master of your own destiny "At face-value, this may be obvious and perhaps a little bit cliched,but in reality this is the simple truth.
Too many people procrastinate and make excuses for themselves. Why? You can't change the past, but you can ALWAYS take actions to make a better you in the future. Tonight, I want you to do something for me. I want you to take a good ol' pen and pad and write down where you want to be in the next 3 months, and then in the next year.
After you identify your ideal positions, I want you to break down and write what you NEED to do to get there. This may include things like:1) Working overtime on x days 2) Networking with others on Tue. and Fri 3.) Working out a minimum of 3 days a week. After you make a list of the steps you need to take to get where you want, HANG it up everywhere. Put it in your wallet, on your wall, in your car. You need to be constantly reminded every day,for 365 days of the steps you need to take on a daily basis in order to get where you want. Consistency leads to results. Life really is a simple formula Do A+B+C and get Z. The thing is people are usually unorganized and never plan to get what they want. Then they ask why are their lives in such chaos.
It's simple really. Write down right now the things you need to do to get where you want and make a promise to yourself that you will follow through every single day until you are where you at.


  1. Nice job.

    I like the idea of life, or success in life, as a formula or equation. "Do A+B+C and get Z." I think that's mostly true. There are usually some solid steps to get from where you are to where you want to be.

    I'm waiting for the series of blog posts on "What to do and what not to do" in the restaurant business! I know you've got some knowledge there too!


  2. Nicely said Alex. Looking forward to more posts.
