Be Ab-Normal!

Do you want to be successful?

Try asking anyone this question and you will be sure to get a resounding “yes!”

Who doesn’t want to be successful? Who doesn’t want to get their dream house, dream car, dream job…dream life? But the question is do you have what it takes to succeed?

If you want to succeed in anything, I’ve got news for you. Don’t be normal. Be ab-normal! As in above normal. The people who are wildly successful are those that are abnormal. Do you know why? That’s because they have a burning desire to reach for their dreams no matter what. They don’t listen to what the world says. Even if everybody tells them, “That’s too hard” or “that’s impossible” or “you can’t do that”, they don’t listen! They pursue their goals stubbornly refusing to be dissuaded.
Take for example Walt Disney. When he wanted to open his first theme park he had to go to the bank for financing. Do you know how many banks turned him down? 303 banks! A normal person would have gone to five or six banks. A more persevering person would have gone to eight or twelve. But was Walt normal? Of course not! If he was, he would never have been able to open a theme park.
Or what about Donald Trump. There was a time when he owed several banks almost 1 billion dollars. But did this defeat him? No. He still walked around like he had money even though he was already poorer than the beggars on the sidewalk. And about 5 years later he recovered all that he had a lost – and more. Now he is worth billions.

Another good example is Steve Jobs. This guy was a visionary. He gave the world a whole new meaning of technology. Steve Jobs was so abnormal that he was willing to leave his own company because the board of directors would no longer support his vision for Apple. According to Jobs, you should never sacrifice your dreams. If you want to succeed you must be willing to do all that it will take. No ifs, no buts.

Do you want to achieve spectacular success in life? Then be inspired by how Trump, Disney and Jobs did it. They rose above the crowd and were willing to take risks. Was it easy? Of course not. But was it worth it? You bet!

Challenge society. Challenge yourself. In doing so you will become the best that your can be.

Welcome 2012!!!

2012 is here!! Excited for this new year and all the growth we are going to experience, it promises to be a banner year for us here at Magnetic Consulting! We crushed records and set the pace for our industry in 2011 and we are looking to do even more this year!
So with that in mind, it seems only fitting to share with you guys the following article!
Six Ways to Take Charge of 2012
New year, new outlook. Stephen Covey, one of the most prolific leadership authors of our time, says there are six things you can do right now to make 2012 your best year ever:
  1. Be proactive.
    It's more than just taking initiative. It means being responsible for your own life. Empower yourself to lead and spread your influence no matter what position you hold.
  2. Sharpen the saw.
    Decide what's truly important. Sharpen your saw early in the day by learning to say no to the unimportant and yes to the highly important
  3. Seek to understand before seeking to be understood.
    It's human nature to want to be understood, but when both parties are trying to be understood, neither party is listening. By making the investment to understand the other party, you can magically transform the course of your conversations.
  4. Begin with the end in mind.
    Start today with an image of the end of your life as the frame of reference by which everything else is examined. With a clear idea of where you are going, examine everything in the context of what matters to you most.
  5. Develop a vision mission statement.
    Get a deep sense of your life's mission, purpose and value system, then establish your goals and a system of accountability that keeps you on track.
  6. Think win-win.
    There is enough success for everyone, so don't view another person's success as success achieved at your expense or exclusion.
