Same Ship, Different Day?

Monday Morning Match is a short post - maybe a quote, inspirational story or idea - intended to spark some motivation inside each of you so your week gets off to a fantastic start on Monday morning.

The big Christmas holiday is now behind us. It seems that the day builds up for weeks (months if you're under 10-years-old) with shopping, baking, wrapping, traveling and then after a frenzy of wrapping paper, lots and lots of eating, smiles and hugs with family members and a few Alka Seltzers before laying down our heads, it's all over.

Take down the tree, put away the stockings and throw away the cookies you just can't find any more room for in your belly. New Year's Eve is will be here quickly and's on to 2011.

This next week between Christmas and New Year's Day we're kind of like ships in a harbor, just waiting for our next excursion. Our anchors are down and we're resting up. Some of us might be scraping some barnacles from our hull, adding some fuel to the tank or filling up the galley with needed items for our journey.

"It's our philosophical set of the sail that determines the course of our lives. To change our current direction, we have to change our philosophy, not our circumstance."
~ Jim Rohn

What's going to be changing in your philosophy next year? What will you do different? What will you stop doing?

Are there things you'll continue to spend time, effort or money on because they worked well for you this year?

Who will you spend more time with because you feed off their energy, enthusiasm and emotion? Who should you try to avoid so they don't add toxic vibes to your thoughts?

Leave me a comment and tell me something you're going to try, or change or stop doing in 2011.

And then rest up this week because starting next week, it's "Anchors Up!"

When you take control of your sails in 2011,
you will take control of your sales in 2011.
