Like me, I’m sure over the years you’ve read thousands of quotes that resonate with you. Inspirations from poets, philosophers and other influential figures.
4 x 4 is a compilation of 4 power words or aphorisms that make up of 4 impactful phrases. Packed into these words are a truth and tell about your life, opportunity, and your legacy.
- If not now, when?
Whatever you’ve been waiting to do, today is the day to start making it happen. Waiting guarantees that it won’t happen. The time is now. Don’t wait for 100% readiness. When you are 80% ready, go for it! Risk messing up. Do it anyway.
- Without action, nothing changes.
A goal without a plan is simply a wish that is never realized. Why do so many people say they’re going to do something and then never follow through? When the chips are down, we identify the most common reason as fear. If you want to conquer fear, you’ll need to take a different, proactive approach.
- Slow the heck down.
I believe in the power of slowing down to speed up. In a fast-paced, multi-tasking world, when you are willing to really slow down, first observe and then make your move. You will stand out from the crowd and achieve exponential results.
- I believe in you!
Years ago, Google did a study on common behaviors of very highly successful leaders in corporate management. At the top of the list, according to Google’s verifiable attributes, the number one characteristic of successful management is they know how to BE A GOOD COACH to their employees. The words “I Believe In You” was their single greatest competitive advantage.
Power words lead to powerful change.
I took this a step further and wrote down 4 words of my own which are the heart and soul of my personal development and my business model. Here’s what I came up with:
Connect. Serve. Impact. Create
Take some time. Slow it down, and then come up with your own powerful 4 words.
BE Extraordinary at Being You
