Week in Review 1715

Exciting news!!!  My son was discharged from the NICU this weekend and is now home with his family.  Its crazy how something so simple as having my whole family under the same roof has been all thats been on my mind for awhile.  It really does come down to the simple things in life.

Brotherhood Coaching Live Audio continues to be well received by you, the listeners, and so I thank you for listening to these daily journal entries that I broadcast out to the public.

I give you the Week In Review:
MondayComplaining comes from stress, the stress is from anxiety over a situation you have no control over. If you have no control then why stress and why complain?”

Tuesday
Life lesson from a Probie

“I’m a leader, not a savior”

Peoples actions reveal what they really want.

Watch what they do not what they say.

Wednesday
Shit happens.

We can choose to be victims of our circumstances,

Or

We can choose to overcome the extra obstacles we were given in life.

It all comes down to how much fight you’ve got.

Thursday
What happens when we don’t have instant results?

We lose motivation?

This is why discipline is so good important.

Discipline kicks in when motivation quits.

Discipline will always be there if we use it.

Trust the process.
Keep going.

Story time ?

Friday
Who’s in control when you lose your cool?

Your emotions.

Emotional people make poor decisions.
Uncontrolled emotions start fights, end careers, ruin relationships, and take lives.

Keep control of your emotions to stay in control of the situation.

The story ?

Monday   Listen Here
JOBTOWN
– a firehouse who regularly sees fires

Catching fires always seems to boost morale

Why?

It’s a challenge they team must overcome together

It’s an incident that requires a level a skill that we prepare for

Overcoming challenges = increased morale

Tuesday  Listen Here 
What’s your example say about you?

You see, what you repeatedly do is the example you set for others

We often judge ourselves by our intentions

Others judge us by our actions

Wednesday  Listen Here 
To do something or not do something.

Both are actions.

When issues arise, it’s a sign there is something not right.

We have a choice to address it or not.

Either way you are making a choice.

Friday  Listen Here 
Children perform well when this is in place

Families excel when this exists

Firefighters crave it and do not even know it

I give you the Week In Review:
Monday   Listen Here

Progression
You are going to suck at first
Don’t quit
You will be a little better the next time
Don’t quit
Keep at it.
The more you do something the better you will get at it.
Everything takes progression

Tuesday  Listen Here 

We all want the same thing
Whether it’s success, happiness, or love.
Imagine the possibility that if you don’t have them, it’s because you aren’t using the right tools.
Learn more to know the best tool to use

Wednesday  Listen Here 

The principles we have guide our decisions we make.
Each of us have our own that we default to.
The problem arises when you judge me on your principles or I judge you on based on mine.
We are not playing by the same rules.
So we should be doing things a little bit differently.

Thursday  Listen Here

Winner winner
CONGRATULATIONS
You won, yes YOU.

I give you the Week In Review:
Monday

https://www.facebook.com/brotherhoodcoaching/videos/1573358539376583/We can all be weak

And

We can all be strong

You have a responsibility when you are strong…
That responsibility is to protect the weak.

Consider your strength a gift.

What are you going to do with that gift?

Keep it for yourself?
Help others become stronger?

Tuesday

https://www.facebook.com/brotherhoodcoaching/videos/1574357392610031/Be present

Be flexible and resilient

You woke up today and that means it’s another day to fight back.

Wednesday

Scaling the ladder?

There’s no right or wrong.

Just what you want to achieve.

Thursday

https://www.facebook.com/brotherhoodcoaching/videos/1576258755753228/Habits.

If we do it regularly, it’s a habit.

If we want to see it happen regularly, we must make it a habit.

This goes for treating people right, leading effectively, doing what’s right, and being good at our jobs.

We will never just BE good,
We must make it a habit first.

Friday
Mentors.

Find one and Be one.

Learn from someone who’s been there if you want to shorten the learning curve.

Then build your team.
Attract other likeminded individuals.

Do the work.

Be the role model you looked up to.

Week in Review 1710

Brotherhood Coaching Live Audio continues to be well received by you, the listeners, and so I thank you for listening to these daily journal entries that I broadcast out to the public.

I give you the Week In Review:
Monday

https://www.facebook.com/brotherhoodcoaching/videos/1566948236684280/The way you judge someone is a reflection of YOU

not them.

Haters tend to hate in an effort to find a reason you are not better than them.

It’s an insecurity response.
It’s not a true interpretation of you.
Just them dealing with their own issues.

Don’t buy into to others issues

Tuesday

What do you do with your frustrations?

Do you channel it to complaining?

Do you use it to make a positive impact?

2 Choices

Its one or the other

Keep it bad or make it better

Whats your choice?

Wednesday

What stops progress?
Bottlenecks created by selfish wants.
To let others grow, get out of their way.
Listen below

Thursday

The results you say you want are on the other side of the work you need to do.
We get frustrated when we do not see results.
Since the results we are not seeing come from the work we are not doing, why get frustrated?
Less talking and more doing
Is the start to your happiness.

Friday

Experience comes from failures
While
Failures come from lack of experience.
Most things I do for the first time do not work out as well as I had hoped.
This is a normal trend that we tend to forget.
When babies first walk, what happens? They fall and get back up until they finally get the hang of walking. They don’t quit and just crawl the rest do their lives.
So when you are doing something new, don’t give up after a few failed attempts. Regroup and reengage.
Gain some experience by practicing this new skill.
It’s only a failure when you don’t learn anything from it.

I’m a little late with this one.  I was up in Chicago for my cousins wedding.

I’ll be at the Fort Lauderdale Fire Expo this coming weekend.  Shoot me a message if you’ll be there.

I give you the Week In Review:
Monday

Are you sick and tired of the same B.S. ?
Good.
Consider it a sign to do something.
Get involved.
And
Make something happen.

Tuesday  Listen Here 

Some times we have to work harder to get the results that come easier for others
You never know the challenges people have
Taking a judger mindset will lead down the wrong path
We don’t know others stories and they don’t know ours

Wednesday

Timing will never be perfect
You’ll never feel more like doing something
The only way to get things done that you want is to do them.
Discipline is the missing ingredient for most
When we don’t feel like doing something is when you actually need to do it

Thursday  Listen Here

Taking action will cause growth and happiness
We are not meant to just sit around and exist
We are meant to produce results

Friday  Listen Here

Our issues are from our perspective.
We make them issues based on how we are looking at the situation.
Only when we are aware can we fix the issue.

Lessons from a hurricane

 Listen Here 

You’re performance is the direct result of your level of commitment and effort.

No excuses

Make it happen

Giving too many f@cks

Is a sign that a person has very little to worry about.

Where are you putting your energy?

You only have soo many f@cks to give
