Discover the Power of Belief <ul><li>As a member of the ESS TechTeam , many times you don’t get to choose: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What, where, when, why, or with whom you do a job </li></ul></ul><ul><li>But for many of the jobs , you do get to make significant choices: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How you do the job (as to timeliness, quality, profitability) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How you can set an example for others ( Best Way, Right Way, All the Way ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How you treat others and especially the Customer ! </li></ul></ul>

  9. 9. Belief Fuels Enthusiasm <ul><li>VP of Sales with a Food Company (prepared salads) finally captured a meeting with a client that represented a phenomenal opportunity! </li></ul><ul><li>Preparation was complete, and now they were in front of the client with samples. </li></ul><ul><li>As the presentation pointed to the quality and benefits of the product, it developed to the point of sampling the actual food. </li></ul><ul><li>A container of salad was opened, and a “bad” vegetable was on top… </li></ul><ul><li>What happened after – that is what was amazing ! </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The customer hadn’t seen the problem yet. </li></ul><ul><li>The Sales Manager promptly picked up the vegetable with his fingers, popped it into his mouth – and said, “I can’t get enough of this great salad !” </li></ul><ul><li>What happened? The VP believed in his product knew this was a rare occurrence and he took the opportunity to prevent a loss with the customer.. </li></ul><ul><li>Do you believe in what ESS can be? Can you take all opportunity’s to show ESS’ best to our clients ? </li></ul>Belief Fuels Enthusiasm
  11. 11. Belief Fuels Enthusiam <ul><li>Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. </li></ul><ul><li>---Ralph Waldo Emerson </li></ul>
  12. 12. Ride the Wave of Passion <ul><li>What happens when you believe something with all your heart? </li></ul><ul><li>Belief fuels enthusiasm, and determined enthusiasm explodes into passion. It fires our souls and lifts our spirits . </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>In 1991, Successories hired Tim Dumbler as an account manager, though skeptical about him as he was legally blind </li></ul><ul><li>He suggested if he could have the job, he would buy a machine to help enter orders </li></ul><ul><li>He became the top producer . Peers liked him because of his caring, positive attitude </li></ul><ul><li>Customers loved him because he was a great listener </li></ul>Ride the Wave of Passion
  14. 14. Ride the Wave of Passion <ul><li>Tim was asked, “How do you stay so positive ?” </li></ul><ul><li>His response was, “It’s unfortunate that I’m visually impaired, but I have to tell you that fighting through the adversity has made me a better person . I have come to realize that I have a lot more than I don’t have . I love my family. I love my work and the people I work with. I’ve been blessed in many ways .” </li></ul><ul><li>His passion propelled him to great success. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Ride the Wave of Passion <ul><li>The wave of passion can become an unstoppable force. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Manage Your Attitude <ul><li>After more than 30 years in business, I’m convinced that – the difference in success and failure is not how you look, how you dress, not education …but how you think! </li></ul><ul><li>It’s impossible to overstate the importance of maintaining a positive attitude </li></ul><ul><li>It’s impossible to understate the difficulty in actually doing it. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>First on the author’s list is exercise – motivation & energy are tied to exercise, a “top stress-buster” </li></ul><ul><li>Second on his list is gratitude – we are blessed in so many ways; we need to remind ourselves daily </li></ul><ul><li>The third key to managing my attitude is to laugh at myself and to laugh with others </li></ul><ul><li>William James , one of the fathers of modern psychology, said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter their life by altering their attitude .” </li></ul>Manage Your Attitude
  18. 18. Manage Your Attitude <ul><li>Researchers have investigated why some people can’t cope and found three reasons: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low self-esteem </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Living in the past </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can’t laugh at themselves </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Laugh at yourself , laugh with your friends , your family , and your co-workers </li></ul><ul><li>It will keep you going , keep you healthy , and keep you motivated. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Manage Your Attitude <ul><li>Your attitude almost always determines your altitude in life. </li></ul>
  20. 20. A Question for the TechTeam <ul><li>Jim wants us to think of where ESS needs to be in five years – what will a successful ESS look like then? </li></ul><ul><li>What do we need to focus on, what do we need to develop or initiate to put us on the road to getting there? </li></ul><ul><li>The TechTeam is the core of ESS’s success to this point, it will need to be the basis of our future also! </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for your contribution! </li></ul>
  21. 21. Ride the Wave of Passion <ul><li>The wave of passion can become an unstoppable force. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Discover Your Reason for Being <ul><li>Who am I? </li></ul><ul><li>What am I meant to do here? </li></ul><ul><li>What am I trying to do with my life? </li></ul><ul><li>These are important and powerful questions – ones that can be difficult to answer. </li></ul><ul><li>These questions surface when during major life transitions… </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>Every person is a unique being. </li></ul><ul><li>There is only one of you in the universe. </li></ul><ul><li>You have many gifts – even more yet to be discovered. </li></ul><ul><li>How will you apply your gifts to your work? </li></ul><ul><li>How can we help you learn, grow, and excel? </li></ul>Discover Your Reason for Being
  24. 24. Discover Your Reason for Being <ul><li>Albert Schweitzer said it well: </li></ul><ul><li>“ I don’t know what your destiny will be , but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve .” </li></ul>
  25. 25. Discover Your Reason for Being <ul><li>May it be said, when the sun sets on your life, you made a difference. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Develop an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge <ul><li>In 1972, Jim Cathcart was making $525 a month in Little Rock, AR , with a new wife & baby , no degree , no past success , not much hope for the future. </li></ul><ul><li>Jim was listening to a radio program “ Our Changing World” by Earl Nightingale , known as “the Dean of Personal Motivation ”, whose booming voice said, “ If you will spend an extra hour a day in your field, you will be an expert in five years or less.” </li></ul><ul><li>Though Jim was stunned, it made sense . He had always wanted to speak and help people grow in personal development. </li></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>He studied , worked on becoming better organized, joined a self-improvement group, exercised , was disciplined , and really put Nightingale’s theory to the test. </li></ul><ul><li>It worked! </li></ul><ul><li>Jim Cathcart has now delivered more than 2500 speeches and won every major award in the speaking industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Jim (with Tony Allesandra) produced one the best study programs on relating to people titled “ Relationship Stategies .” </li></ul>Develop an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge
  28. 28. <ul><li>Just like companies have market value, so do people! </li></ul><ul><li>Your value increases by knowing and doing more in your work. </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge is power, not only for your career, but to improve your family and spiritual life. </li></ul>Develop an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge
  29. 29. Develop an Unquenchable Thirst for Knowledge <ul><li>Knowledge is like climbing a mountain: The higher you reach, the more you can see and appreciate. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Set Realistic Short-term Goals <ul><li>“ I was having a rough week when there was a lot to do and very little time to do it. I was overwhelmed . I panicked.” </li></ul><ul><li>Our author shares that he learned an unforgettable lesson , when he stated the above to a friend and the friend shared advice that his grandmother had given him years before… </li></ul><ul><li>“ Inch by inch, life’s a cinch. Yard by yard, life is hard.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Come on,” he said, “Here I am drowning in work, and you give me a quote from your grandmother?” </li></ul><ul><li>But those twelve little words challenged him. He made a list of the things to do, and began working them out, one by one . </li></ul>
  31. 31. <ul><li>Three days later the list was checked off. It worked ! He wrote the quote and carries it still today in his wallet. </li></ul><ul><li>Success doesn’t come cascading like Niagara Falls, it comes one drop at a time with the achievement of short-term, realistic goals . </li></ul><ul><li>If you believe something (goals are realistic), you’re likely to be highly motivated . </li></ul><ul><li>If you think you can’t (unrealistic goals) your motivation falls greatly. </li></ul>Set Realistic Short-term Goals
  32. 32. <ul><li>The lesson – Continue to dream big dreams! </li></ul><ul><li>But realize that it is short-term goals that take you to the next plateau and they are the real keys to success . </li></ul><ul><li>So, transform that dream , the big goal, into small short-term goals , and set out to accomplish them, one by one, like checking off a list. </li></ul><ul><li>Goals are “ dreams with deadlines .” </li></ul>Set Realistic Short-term Goals
  33. 33. Set Realistic Short-term Goals Inch by inch , life’s a cinch . Yard by yard, life is hard.
  34. 34. Imagination – Tap Your Creativity <ul><li>Good ideas don’t just happen . </li></ul><ul><li>They depend on people making them happen . People eager to explore new paths, desiring to learn new things. </li></ul><ul><li>An expert on creativity, Jordan Ayan, in his book Ignite Your Creative Spark suggests 4 steps… </li></ul>
  35. 35. <ul><li>Preparation – gather info/resources to fully understand a problem </li></ul><ul><li>Incubation – let your mind “play” with the idea </li></ul><ul><li>Illumination – experience the “Aha!” moment when the idea develops </li></ul><ul><li>Implementation – You do or you don’t … </li></ul>Imagination – Tap Your Creativity
  36. 36. <ul><li>Implementation is where most people fall off the “creative train” . </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of folks have great ideas in the shower , but they seem to lose them when they dry off . </li></ul><ul><li>Use persistence and passion to bring your ideas to life . </li></ul><ul><li>What ideas can you and I contribute to leading ESS to the Best Way, the Right Way, All the Way ? </li></ul>Imagination – Tap Your Creativity
  37. 37. Imagination – Tap Your Creativity Imagination is seeing things, not as they are, but as they could be . Imagination – Tap Your Creativity
  38. 38. Embrace Change in Your Life <ul><li>The root word for “ motivation ” is “ move ” and movement is change . </li></ul><ul><li>Ask, “ Am I moving forward , or am I standing still ?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Am I pleased with my relationships ?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Do I have a healthy lifestyle ?” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Is my energy level , my attitude where it should be ?” </li></ul><ul><li>Truthful answers to these questions may tell you whether you want, or need change . </li></ul>
  39. 39. <ul><li>Comfort zones put padlocks on the doors to growth , discovery , and adventure in our lives. </li></ul><ul><li>3 keys that will unlock these doors are discipline , hard work , and faith . </li></ul><ul><li>Remember, when it comes to progress , when it comes to change , “ Inch by inch life’s a cinch, yard by yard, life is hard .” </li></ul><ul><li>Unlock 1 door at a time , enjoy small successes , and soon you’ll have achieved your goals . </li></ul>Embrace Change in Your Life
  40. 40. <ul><li>Change can truly be a wonderful gift . </li></ul><ul><li>It can recharge your emotional battery and nourish your soul . </li></ul><ul><li>Just do it! Choose change and let it make a positive difference in your life . </li></ul><ul><li>What change can you choose that will help lead ESS to the Best Way, the Right Way, All the Way ? </li></ul>Embrace Change in Your Life
  41. 41. Embrace Change in Your Life Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction.
  42. 42. Have Heroes <ul><li>Things don’t always go as planned . Finding inspiration during these times can get us back on track . </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes, thinking of personal heroes – people who accomplished great things under difficult circumstances, give me energy and courage , like… </li></ul><ul><li>Mother Teresa , who devoted her life to caring for the poorest of the poor. </li></ul><ul><li>Helen Keller had every excuse to give up on life, yet she persevered and became an inspiration to millions . </li></ul><ul><li>Abraham Lincoln failed in 2 businesses, lost 6 elections, but became possibly our greatest president </li></ul><ul><li>And Ricky Johnson … </li></ul>
  43. 43. <ul><li>Nothing had gone well as I was selling dictionaries door-to-door, and I hadn’t sold one that day. </li></ul><ul><li>I had gotten 2 people out of bed, and had been bitten by a German Shepherd ( so far ). </li></ul><ul><li>At the next house, Mrs. Johnson greeted me with a smile, listened and said, “ Let’s see what Ricky thinks .” </li></ul><ul><li>In a small room was a 13-year-old with legs withered by polio . Ricky said, “ This will help with my school work! ” </li></ul><ul><li>He remarked, “ I like my teachers & classmates , they made a ramp for me to use at school. I am going to finish & go on to college .” </li></ul>Have Heroes
  44. 44. <ul><li>With a lump in my throat, I left, and then had the best sales day of that summer . This young boy had made me quit feeling sorry for myself , and I’ll never forget his wonderful attitude about life. </li></ul><ul><li>Often we worry about what we don’t have , and don’t spend enough time being thankful for what we do have . </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes it takes a “hero” to remind us. </li></ul><ul><li>At ESS we need good attitudes , helpfulness toward others , and perseverance . </li></ul>Have Heroes
  45. 45. Have Heroes The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time. ---Abraham Lincoln The best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart. ---Helen Keller In this life we cannot always do great things. But we can do small things with great love. ---Mother Teresa
  46. 46. Seek Solitude <ul><li>Do you ever need your emotional battery recharged ? </li></ul><ul><li>When it’s been too long since I’ve gotten a break , it begins to affect my mood , my energy levels , and my ability to think clearly and act decisively . </li></ul><ul><li>In our jobs, it is important to effectively focus on details , but we must check periodically to insure that we are seeing our job activities in perspective. </li></ul>
  47. 47. <ul><li>Two “Stress Busters” </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Exercise </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Solitude </li></ul></ul><ul><li>They move us beyond the “ noise and confusion ” from our everyday world. </li></ul><ul><li>Using the beauty of nature , or music , or just thoughtful focus on the beauty of life (love, joy, peace) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan a few minutes each day </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plan an hour @ least during the weekend </li></ul></ul>Seek Solitude
  48. 48. Seek Solitude <ul><li>True silence is rest of the mind, and it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. </li></ul><ul><li>---William Penn </li></ul>
  49. 49. Savor the Moment <ul><li>In the race to become better or best , at today’s hectic pace, we sometimes lose site of just being. </li></ul><ul><li>We often forget to savor small pleasures and accomplishments while we make big plans. </li></ul><ul><li>Did I do a good job this morning? Was that cabling installed well, supported to code? If the answer is yes , enjoy the satisfaction of doing a job well . </li></ul><ul><li>Off the job , am I taking time to enjoy the break from work? </li></ul>
  50. 50. <ul><li>Have you ever had a crazy notion to go fishing at midnight ? The author did. </li></ul><ul><li>Going there he took in all the sights and sounds of nature , and on his first cast, reeled in a bass weighing over five pounds , which he released, though it was one of the biggest he had ever caught. </li></ul><ul><li>In the next two hours he caught 17 bass (all between 2 and 5 pounds). Having fished for almost 50 years, he had never experienced anything like this . This was a life-time memory . </li></ul><ul><li>When work is hard, time is short, take a moment to remind yourself of “moments” and blessings, and savor them . </li></ul>Savor the Moment
  51. 51. Savor the Moment <ul><li>We must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind us to the fact that each moment is a miracle and a mystery. </li></ul><ul><li>---H.G. Wells </li></ul>
