Are You Always An Overcomer.. Really?


One of the topics that’s often discussed here is always overcoming.  When a normal person looks in it can often be perceived like success is so dang hard.  Something is always trying to stop you in life, maybe it’s not worth it.  A true entrepreneurs knows 3 things.  First It’s always worth it and second we have to ALWAYS overcome some challenge or we have just overcome something and we are inspiring someone else to do the same.

Let’s talk about being worth it for a moment.  Look at people like Steve Jobs, he was fired from the company he started and took to a 2 billion dollar company at 30 years old.  Over coming that obstacle is what made him who he became.  My last post I wrote about Steve Harvey,  Steve Harvey today is one of the funniest TV host ever.  But through the eighties he was homeless off and on several times living out of his truck between comedy gigs.  If Steve Harvey gave up then what?  Dani Johnson, was homeless on the beach in Hawaii.  That obstacle inspired her to start a business and become a millionaire in 2 years.  Barbara Corcoran, was a woman and wanted to start a career in real estate in New York where it was a man’s game.  Because of that obstacle and overcoming it she turned 1,000 dollar loan into 100 million dollars.

Success isn’t complicated but it’s never going to be easy.  How many people had a ton of ideas of what they wanted life to be like when they were 18 or 19.  Let me ask you, what did you want to do when you were 18?  What did you plan for your life to look like back then?  Who were you going to marry?  What were your kids going to be like?  What kind of house were you going to live in?  What trips and experiences were you going to have?  Why did you let life stop you from doing those things?  Your time could come when you are in your 20’s like it did for Dani Johnson, or 30’s like it did for Steve Jobs or even your 40’s or 50’s like it did for Steve Harvey.  What if Steve Harvey stopped pursuing comedy for a “stable” job? You will have to face your challenges at some point, you either look for the easiest way around it or you take it head on and go through it!

Finally we are supposed to over come a challenge and then share that testimony with others to inspire them.  I started a small business from my home over the internet.

I think every person who has had success is attempting to share that success and if you listen they are even trying to tell you how they did it.  From Steve Harvey, to Dani Johnson and even me just sharing my experiences.  Too often people can come up with all kinds of things that are stopping them from moving forward.  Sometimes you need just one reason to take action and overcome.

Get Bumped Up to First Class on Your Next Flight!!

First Class

Admit it: Flying first class can make the hassles of air travel so much better. I’ve been bumped up to first class twice: once while traveling solo on a business trip to Boston and once with my husband on our honeymoon. Let’s just say I liked it very much. Who wouldn’t appreciate a glass of Cabernet while waiting for everyone else to board?

While I love flying first class, I don’t exactly want to pay for it. First-class tickets can cost four times the coach fare, and it doesn’t seem worth it for a short flight.

So how do you increase your odds of getting moved up? Here are 10 things you can do to increase your odds of flying first class for free:

1. Dress the part. Pack your yoga pants, torn jeans, and flip-flops, and wear something that belongs in first class. You don’t have to wear a suit (although it wouldn’t hurt). Just wear something professional, and shows that you belong.

Bob Atkinson, travel expert at TravelSupermarket.com, advises sticking to the “smart casual” code, and that “a cashmere shawl or linen jacket can make all the difference.”

2. Ask for an upgrade. Sometimes if you want something, all you have to do is ask. When you check in, say to the agent: “If you are upgrading passengers on this flight, I would like to be considered.” Be sure to smile. Many of the people gate agents deal with are complaining; you’ll stand out if you’re friendly and polite.

“Be nice to everybody from the moment you walk on airport property,” former flight attendant Carolyn Paddock, founder of the website Life in Flight, told Bankrate.com. “You’re talking to people who are decision makers.”

3. Be early. The early bird gets the worm. Instead of trying to get the attention of the agent while he or she is busy with other passengers, show up early and be the first one to ask. Your flight may have only one or two upgrades available.

4. Travel solo. There is a greater chance that just one or two seats will be available in first class. If you frequently travel with co-workers, your odds of getting singled out are slim. Instead, fly by yourself to improve your chances.

5. Travel during peak times. If the flight has fewer passengers, chances are no one will be moved up. Airlines are more likely to upgrade people to make room on flights they oversell.

6. Sit next to the baby or take the middle seat. If a flight attendant is moving passengers, he or she may look to make the trip more comfortable for someone by moving them from a less desirable seat.

7. Give up your spot. When the gate agent asks for people who are willing to give up their seat, volunteer if you can be upgraded on the next flight. You will experience the delay, but it might be worth it if you can fly first class. This works especially well if there aren’t other people volunteering, Jeanenne Tornatore, senior editor at travel website Orbitz.com, told Market Watch.

8. Check your seat. When you sit down, make sure your armrests, recliner, tray table, and seat belt are in working condition. If they’re broken, let the flight attendant know. Passengers in broken seats will be reassigned–and it could be to first class.

9. Join the airline’s loyalty club. Even if you don’t travel often, it doesn’t hurt to become a member of an airline frequent-flyer club. You’ll often receive upgrade opportunities, and if agents are looking to move someone, they could look to their list of members first.

“If our airport staff are looking to upgrade passengers on the day of departure, there is a process that they follow which generally sees passengers that are frequent flyers of the airline–or those that have paid for a fully flexible ticket–benefiting,” Harriet Bevis, Virgin Atlantic spokesperson, told the Daily Mail.

10. Let flight attendants know if it’s a special occasion. If it’s your birthday, anniversary, or honeymoon, let the flight attendants know. And if you don’t get an upgrade, you just might get a free drink.

Impress Your Team – 12 Distinctive Ways That Will Make You Stand Out

IMAGE: Getty Images

Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get, and we make a life by what we give.”

To make a great impression takes much more than just being present: It takes giving fully of ourselves. When we do, great things can happen.

Here are 12 unique ways to impress your team.

1. Be True to Yourself.

Working with a team doesn’t require a special personality or great intelligence.
The secret is to be the very best parts of who you are.

If you set the right example, you won’t need to worry about being impressive.

2. Be Appreciative.

Thinking and speaking from the heart, acknowledge and appreciate those who work hard, and have passion for what they do.
When you appreciate those around you, you show you care.

3. Be Honest.

Honesty is the ultimate competitive advantage, and the first chapter when it comes to effective relationships.
Most people don’t want perfection; they want truth. There is no stronger foundation between individuals than honesty.

4. Be Inclusive.

Give those on your team room to grow, to be themselves, and to exercise their diversity, and appreciate their differences.
Without diversity we would not be productive , and without inclusion we would not be effective.

5. Be Respectful.

Are you operating out of respect for each member of your team? If so, you are going to succeed; if not, you’re likely to fail.

6. Be Collaborative.

The strength of the team is each individual member, and the strength of each member is the team.
Those who make the biggest impression are the ones who truly understand that doing something alone
is not as powerful as doing something collectively.

7. Be Caring.

Never stop doing the little things for others. Sometimes it’s those little things that occupy the biggest part of our hearts.
If we can shift our focus away from ourselves, if we can extend our care and concern for our own well-being to those around
us, the response is likely to be immediate and overwhelming.

8. Be Excellent.

If you want to do excellent work, you must give your best to everything you do. Excellence is the gradual result of always
striving to do better and be better. We are what we repeatedly do; therefore, excellence is not an act but a habit that we
create every day in all that we do.

9. Be Supportive.

Look for ways to give each member of your team more control over their piece of the business to show that you believe in their competence.
Bet on people, not on strategies. Believe in their competence and let them surprise you.

10. Be Confident.

Confidence is not a state of mind but a way of life, not something that you turn on and off but something that you emulate every day.
Confidence breeds competence and competence breeds consistency.

11. Be Committed.

Commitment to a team is critical. It takes the commitment of everyone to truly make things happen.
One person who wants something is good; a team who works together to make something happen is great.

12. Be YOU.

Bring your best self to your team and allow them to see your gifts and potential.
When you are part of a team, you behave in a defined way to reach a common goal.

Many of us work on teams, and those of who don’t, work with others in some capacity. To be impressive,
we must care for one another without boundaries; we must acknowledge that great work requires inclusion and diversity.

Trends such as this lead to financial success and define our lives. We either make money or spend money on trend’s, depending on where we position ourselves.
