Jim Rohn, “The Treasury of Quotes”

“Could creating your character be likened to an artist creating a sculpture? In my opinion, I believe that character is not something that just happens by itself, any more than a chisel can create a work of art without the hand of an artist guiding it. In both instances, a conscious decision for a specific outcome has been made. A conscious process is at work. Chara cter is the result of hundreds and hundreds of choices you make that gradually turn who you are, at any given moment, into who you want to be. If that decision-making process is not present, you will still be somebody. You will still be alive, but may have a personality rather than a character.”

Where in the world is . . . ?

No I did not disappear. I just took some time to take stock, focus and take care of my family. Here is the beauty of having a business that you can run from either home or the office. I had a sick house and lots of winter breaks. I may have been silent, but I certainly wasn't unproductive. In fact, this has been some of my most productive time. I have had time to squeeze in several MasterMind sessions over the past three months. During those sessions, I have crystallized my vision for my business and am proud to announce the first official meeting of my Business Marketing Gym is on February 16th. It is so exciting, I am not sleeping at night. I love when that happens. I will keep you posted on the success and challenges of launching and implementing my first coaching club.
