Cartoon – Do It Now!

January 28, 2009

Here’s another piece from the 100 Day Challenge I did last year…

Embrace a Do It Now Philosophy!
The people who make things happen in this world value and share a similar sense of urgency. It’s my great desire to ignite a flame under your behind today…

Sometimes you need a rocket up your ass!

Sometimes you need a rocket up your ass!

..one that compels you to step up, to raise the bar, and astound yourself.
You must keep in mind that throughout this 100 Day Challenge, no matter how intelligent or capable you may be, if you don’t have a sense of urgency. Now is the time to start developing it.
Creating a do it now attitude helps you to replace question marks with exclamation marks!
* The unwritten letter? Write it today!
* The old friend you’ve been meaning to reconnect with? Get connected today!
* The apology that is long overdue? Apologize today!
* The book you’ve talked about writing? Start writing today!
* The visit you’ve been intending to make? Make it today!
* The business you were going to start someday? Get started today!
* The race you were going to run? Start running today!
* The daily exercise you were going to do? Start exercising today!
* The language you were going to learn? Start learning today!
* The musical instrument you’ve always wanted to play? Start playing today!
* The resolution to give back to the community? Begin giving back today!
* The person with whom you’ve been meaning to share your faith? Share it today!

* The decision to confront your fears and dump all of those excuses? Do it today!

Cartoon – The First Steps To Success!

January 27, 2009

Here’s an excerpt from Ryan Blair’s 100 Day Challenge – the cartoon is mine and doesn’t appear in the transcript…

We all know that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step and the same holds true for the 100 Day Challenge.
The goal choices you make today set the pace (fast) as well as the tone (playing to win), and the actions you take today determine both your direction and destiny.
To ensure a good start, you must take that bold first step, you must identify three achievable goals and you must pursue victory throughout the day. You must start the day fast and finish the day strong.
You must have the conviction that the purpose of setting a goal must be to achieve it, as there is no purer form of success, no more exact and exacting test of what you are capable of than to seize every opportunity, and achieve everything you set out to do.

100 Day Challenge – Start Fast Finish Strong!

January 26, 2009

Hi,

I took Ryan Blair’s 100 day challenge last year from September thru the end of December – it was an outstanding goal setting and life planning program. You get a daily audio along with a transcript, I can certainly say it helped me refocus and kept me on my toes everyday.

Stuck in Time!

I hate to admit it, but I was stuck in time, I was in a comfort zone and just going along nice and steady. It changed my thinking and now I’m back climbing the next mountain!

Outta my Comfort Zone!

Cartoon – Set a goal to achieve something that is big!

January 26, 2009

I’m always reviewing/looking at setting goals whether small and short term or big and longer term. I came across this quote on my travels….

“Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals.”

Bob Proctor

A BIG GOAL should scare you!

Road to Confidence!

Having been skeptical about trying out a new company especially from the internet without any recommendations, I can honestly say. Richard Duszczak of Cartoon Studio Ltd’s work is amazing, his turn around time was exceptionally fast, and any requests for amendments were literally carried out in minutes.

I definitely will work with Cartoon Studio Ltd again, I am always keen to work with professional people, particularly those who are passionate about their work, provide an excellent level of professionalism and are exceptionally skilled at their work.

So, as you can see I’m always happy to work with you on your business ideas.

End of shameless plug!
