Taking control and improving your life

When you own a company, you never stop trying to get your people to be a little bit better each day. The  old saying, “You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink!” is really not right.

If you put a little salt on his oats and he will be glad to drink. As an owner of a company, it is always a challenge to keep people growing.

As a friend of mine would say, “If it was easy everyone would do it.” If any person  wants to keep getting better they must keep feeding their mind. Every day they must put good stuff in to  get better things coming their way.

If you’re not where you want to be in life it does not matter your age,  change what you’re doing! If you want to lose weight, start walking and eating better.

If you want to make more money, learn a better skill or get better at what you’re doing. The next big thing is to measure where you are in your trip called life.

Have you taken time to track where you are with your money? Are you looking to get out of debt? Look at your house payment. If it is $900 and you’re paying $100 of debt off  each month. Add $100 to your payment, it is like making two payments each month.

Keep up with your  money and spend it with wisdom. What I am saying is you are in charge of You, Inc. so make yourself  wiser each month and make good decisions with your time and money. Grow your people skills every day.

Please just take baby steps to make some changes in your life. In a short period of time you will say, “I should have done this 10 years ago.” I promise. Lead yourself first! You will be glad you did.
