How Do You Wake Up?

Doesn't matter what day it is I am excited about getting going on my day! I love the gift of being passionate about what I do for my career. I love creating momentum in my businesses, maintaining that and watching them grow as I move onto my next creation.
This week we are in the final touches of launching our third restaurant in 10 months..from's very cool!

As an entrepreneur how do you feel when you wake up? If you are feeling the drudgery of facing another day I think you are doing something wrong. Are you panicked about what is around the bend when you face a day...then I think you are doing something wrong. Are you doing everything in your business but never seem to move forward on a daily basis..then I think you are doing something wrong.

Whether you are an entrepreneur or working for someone else...if you are not facing each day with some sort of excitement and enthusiasm then you are doing something wrong. Today is a gift...that's why they call it the Present.

And the best way to start to change this is to say "ENOUGH". That's it.."ENOUGH" and make a pledge to work on enjoying each day. Find the tools to do that and then practice enjoying the day...and practice again.....and again and again ...until it becomes natural. And here's a only takes you about 21 days of consistent practice to make a habit. Not a long time to begin enjoying your life is it.

For startup entrepeneurs I recommend reading The E-Myth Revisited to start your journey
For "wanna-be" enjoyers...start a gratitude journal.
Two simple ways ...and there are many more...but just begin!

Attitude is 90% of success in life!!!!!

Happy Trails
