Finish Strong in 2010

Finish Strong is more than a statement, it’s an attitude. When you combine the word “finish” with “strong,” you create a powerful platform for action. Persevere through the last quarter of 2010 to achieve your goals with a Finish Strong Attitude.

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE FOLLOW THEIR PLAN

You need a plan to find success.

Wanting success isn’t sufficient enough to get it. You’ve got to ask yourself, “What are you going to do to get the things you want.”

Your problem is to bridge the gap which exists between where you are now and the goal you intend to reach.

You cannot fail with a definite step by step plan, because each step you take will carry you along to the next step, like a track. All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.

You can not get lost on a straight road.

THE SEED OF SUCCESS LIES IN YOUR IMAGINATION


Visualize all the things that you want in life. Then make your mental blue print, and begin to build.

Your imagination can show you how to turn your possibilities into reality.

You must make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a profit. Make those mental images work and produce for you.

Think of things not as they are but as you want them to be.
Don’t just dream, be creative.

The will to succeed springs from the knowledge that you can succeed.

YOU GAIN STRENGTH OVER COMING OBSTACLES

Sooner or later you’ll encounter a crisis in your life, and how you meet it will determine your future happiness and success.

Since the beginning of time, everyone has been called upon to meet such a crisis. Close scrutiny will show you that most “crisis situations” are opportunities to either advance or stay where you are.

Indeed, most changes in your life will be due to either “inspiration” or “desperation.”

Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. Whatever comes your way, give it meaning
and transform it into something of value.

A precious stone cannot be polished without friction, nor humanity perfected without trials.

WHEN YOU STOP DREAMING YOU STOP LIVING

If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and yourself.

Hold the image of yourself as you long to be, the image of what you long to obtain, the image of health, efficiency and success.

You can lift yourself by your thoughts. Your vision will allow you surmount the highest obstacles. High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.

What you see is what you get.

Youll become as small as your controlling desire or as great as your dominant aspiration. The courage to follow your dreams is your first step towards destiny.

You can live your dreams.

PERSONAL GROWTH IS INEVITABLE

You’ll experience personal growth on the road to success.
All growth means change and change involves risk.

You grow because you struggle, learn and overcome your obstacles.

What happens to you is not as important as how you react to what happens. Everything you’ll experience “good or bad” has value.

Difficulties in life are the things that show you what you are.
Trouble is the common denominator of living. It’s the great
equalizer of life.
Only when you are no longer afraid will you begin to live

THANK-YOU NOTE ETIQUETTE

By Jill Bremer, AICI, CIP
Bremer Communications
The impact of a handwritten thank-you note is often overlooked in today’s fast-paced “why-write-something-when-I-can-email-it” world. A note written promptly and sincerely is an important ritual of etiquette that is much more effective and appreciated than a phone call or electronic message. Yes, we have a lot of technology at our fingertips, but just because we can do that way doesn’t mean we should.

Most of our mail each day is filled with advertisements and bills. Handwritten notes and letters are a rarity, which makes them that much more meaningful to the recipient. When you write a note by hand, it shows the other person that you cared enough to pull out the stationery box and choose your words without the conveniences of the grammar tool and spellchecker! Written notes are also permanent, which means they can be saved by the recipient and passed around to share with others.

A few years ago, I worried for weeks about what to get a special client for Christmas. This was someone I had worked with very closely for a number of years on many different projects. She is laden each holiday season with several dozen gifts – fruit, wine, books, etc. I didn’t want my gift to get lost in the crowd, so I decided to send her a personal note of thanks. I spent a long time choosing just the right words to express what I had learned from her and how I valued our working relationship. She called me the next week to tell me how special the note was, that she had passed it around to her staff and would treasure it forever. She said it was the one gift that actually meant something to her that year.

Thank you notes should be written to thank someone for a gift, a meal or for a favor done. Your appreciation should be acknowledged within 72 hours; thank-yous seem much more sincere when they are expressed promptly. I think one reason people don’t send thank-you notes is because they don’t own proper stationery. Both men and women need a collection of personalized social stationery, such as letter sheets (for women), Monarch sheets (for men), half sheets, foldover cards (also know as Informals), correspondence cards and envelopes. This set of stationery can be used for letters, thank-you notes, issuing invitations, replying to invitations and gift enclosures. Consider investing in these items; they will serve you well and make a great impression on your recipients.

Correspondence cards are the best choice for thank-you notes, however women may also choose Informals for their notes. Here is a sample format for a thank-you note for a gift:

Start by expressing appreciation“Thank you for the beautiful picture frame.”
Mention the gift’s usefulness – “It is the perfect size for our large anniversary picture. The fact that our names and anniversary date are engraved on the frame makes it so special. It looks perfect on the hall table. In fact, it’s the first thing you see when you open our front door.”
Express the hope for a future meeting“I hope you and Don can visit us soon to see how we are enjoying your thoughtful gift.”
There is really no excuse for not writing a thank-you note. Purchase the proper tools and make it a habit to write a note as soon as possible after the event or receiving the gift. And, please, teach your children to do the same.

It is believed by many people that thank-you notes helped elect George Bush (the first one!) to the U.S. Presidency. He carried a box of cards with him everywhere he went on the campaign trail and jotted a note immediately following each event to the volunteers or hosts. Many believe the personal touch of those notes is what propelled him into the White House. Is there a presidency in your future? Start writing those notes. And when you get there, send me one, too!

SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ARE DREAMERS

Your dreams are your visions of where you’ll be after the battle, your prize at the end of your journey to success. Your goals are the steps you take to finally attain your prize.

Unless you’re willing to work hard and establish some discipline in your life, all of your dreams will be pipe dreams, little mental fantasy trips that will never materialize.

Make concrete steps toward fulfilling your ultimate dream,
and start with solid objectives called goals. Your dreams are where you want to go, your goals are how you get there.

The first indispensable step to getting the things you want out of life is this. Decide what you want.

Don’t be afraid to think big and dare to be great. Dreamers are not content with mediocrity. They never dream of going half way.

People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.

===============================================================================

There are two words that, when spoken, have the most unfathomable power to completely change your life. Two words that, when they pass your lips, will be the cause of bringing absolute joy and happiness to you. Two words that will create miracles in your life, wipe out negativity, and bring you abundance in all things. Two words that, when uttered and sincerely felt, will summon all the forces in the Universe to move all things for you.

There are just two words standing between you, happiness, and the life of your dreams . . .
