If you know me at all, you know I love love love to read books. Actually, I’ve navigated over to listening to books on my iPhone through audible. The book I devoured this week was »» The Power of Broke by Daymond John.
You know the name, right? Daymond John is one of the Sharks on the popular ABC series, Shark Tank.
Yes. This book IS a “business” book, a great read for sales professionals, entrepreneurs, and business owners. But, more than anything — it’s about mindset. The word BROKE in the title, isn’t about what’s happening in your wallet or bank account.
It’s about what’s happening between your ears. It’s about thinking different and using what you have, your God-given assets and abilities to move you forward.
The phrase he used repeatedly throughout the book, and his life mantra, is RISE AND GRIND «« I didn’t like it at first, because the word ‘grind’ sounds difficult. It sounds hard + like a lot of work! And honestly the only thing I feel like grinding some mornings when I rise is coffee beans. Ha.
But, what I realized as I continued to listen, is this: It’s about getting after it! Taking your affordable next steps, the next steps within reach. Taking your next steps with purpose!
It’s no different that what I’ve need coaching my clients to do in their lives personally + professionally. AND what I choose to do every day!
Think about the 6 areas of your life:
emotional. spiritual. health & wellness. financial. professional. relationships.
- Do you desire to move things forward in one or more of these areas?
- Have you set specific goals?
- Did you develop a plan, a road map, to help you achieve them?
How can YOU rise and grind? Most likely what you need, to take your next step with purpose, you already have.
IF you’re seeing barriers or stumbling blocks, I encourage you to pay more attention to what’s happening internally than what’s happening externally.
There’s always hope + opportunity to move us forward in whatever direction is meaningful to us in any area of our life. We just need to know how and where to look for it «« that requires US to RISE AND GRIND!
