Vacation!

This may seem an odd topic, but it’s a major part of our lives and aimed at our health and wellness.
Vacation has been part of life for a long time to give us a rest from the toil of everyday life.
Even if you love your work it is beneficial to get away to rest and recreate.
But a listener wrote in recently asking for ideas, as he recently got back from vacation and felt he wasted it.
Many of us struggle with needing a vacation from our vacations because they were exciting, but exhausting.
Randy and I ultimately zeroed in on three different types of vacation that all have benefits, the value is in understanding what you are getting into and what you can do to prepare and get the most out of your vacations.

You attempt to sell yourself everyday.

To your spouse, your kids, your coworkers or employees, your boss or investors, and for some of you, to an actual customer.
What is your process?
When do you actually ask for the sale, or do you?
I play a four minute clip from Zig Ziglar that is pure sales training.
And of course I asked the Ziglar audience a question, “How or when do you ask people to buy your product or service?” and got many responses.
Tom Ziglar and I definitely talk business and professional selling here, but we also make this personal.
Selling is caring.
Selling is influencing.
Selling is sometimes convincing somebody of something.
And selling is a skill just as much as making somebody feel truly loved is a skill.

Ziglar Show 831

We are all paid for what we produce, to varying degrees.

But with a full time writer it is very tangible and acute.
Renowned fiction author Charles Martin was my guest in episode 829 and his livelihood is 100% connected to his thoughts, ideas, and creativity and what he can get from his brain, out his fingers and typed onto a screen.
In this Habits episode we walk through how he manages himself, his time and his energy to get the required output from himself.
He shares some health issues he’s dealing with that have caused his energy and output to be less, and how he’s managing this to still stay on track with his aggressive writing goals, including getting more of his books on the big movie screens.
I think you’ll relate much to the behind the scenes realities of life Charles’ shares.
You can find Charle’s books and movie ventures at charlesmartinbooks.com or just search for him wherever you find his books, which I just can’t recommend enough.
He has quickly become one of my family’s most favored authors. I’m already disappointed at the thought I’ll ultimately read all his books and be left waiting for the next!

We want our sleep to be like plugging our phone in overnight.

You plug it in when the battery is low and wake to find it fully charged. 
Don’t you want to be the same? Go to bed and wake up fully charged.
But is that happening for you? Do you ever sleep through the night only to wake  unrested and not…fully charged?
Do you have trouble falling asleep? Do you have trouble staying asleep?
These issues don’t result in merely feeling tired for a day and medicating with an espresso, long term these can utterly destroy your life and that is no exaggeration.
Dealing with anxiety? Depression? Hopelessness?
The question is…how is your sleep? And how do you even know for sure? We’ll offer some resources as well.

Should you keep your goals and aspirations secret?

Should you share them with anyone? Everyone?
In this episode I play a two minute clip from Zig Ziglar where he gives us two types of goals and who we will be best served to share them with, and why.
Then I posted this question to the Ziglar audience, “Do you share your goals and aspirations with anyone? Why and why not? And if you do, who?”
Loads of responses that of course ranged from “everybody” to “nobody” and why.
This is an important issue, as there is great value in sharing our goals and aspirations and Tom Ziglar and I will address why, but also cause to be judicious in who, and we cover that as well.

I can attest to my own journey, and much of my struggle in life and business was because I was so focused on going forward and what was ahead and I didn’t realize the value of being aware of what was behind me that I was allowing to handicap me.
