Into the Fire

Into the FireMost of us avoid the heat and fire at all costs.  When it’s hot outside, we come in to get cooled off.  When we’re standing too close to the fire, we back up so that we don’t get burned.

But, what if someone asked you to jump into the fire, what would you do?  Most of us would look at them like they had a screw loose.  Who would willingly jump into the fire?

At times it’s necessary to add a little heat to get your warmed up, inspired and moving toward your goal.

You either move into the refining fire of your own accord, or stay languishing in your comfort zone.

Take for example blown glass. Hot molten glass is put into a 2000 degree furnace to be heated up, and then is shaped and refined, with sheers, paddles, or blocks, until it reaches is desired form, and then it is left to cool.  Watch the video below.

It takes these means, fire, heat, pressure and manipulation, to mold and shape the ordinary into the extraordinary. None of us want to be thrown into the fire, but we also don’t want to live lives that are not congruent with our dreams.

So how to do we accomplish this?  By deciding to discipline ourselves with daily habits that will turn us into the people we want to be,  and by finding others who will help us in the molding process.

First, make a decision to train yourself.  The military trains by repetition, and if it’s good enough to train an elite military, then it should be good enough for us. Choose to set up a disciplined schedule for yourself, write it down, and have it within hands’ reach at all times.  Include all of the things that you want to work on for your first 30 days, and then go from there.  Make yourself accountable to someone else so that you will not falter. Once you’ve mastered these, move on to the next set of disciplines.

Find a mentor who will help you see the obstacles you may encounter. They will not only help you through the roadblocks, but give you insight as to what you may encounter next.

Make sure you get enough rest, quiet time, and family time.  This is about having a balanced life, as well as successful one.

Track your progress and tweak as needed, then continue on.  Once you’ve developed habits from your first attempt, the heat from the fire won’t feel as hot.

I remember a quote from Tony Robbins from years ago, that points to this process.

C.A.N.I- Constant and never-ending improvement.                                                                      -Tony Robbins

We may have to be cajoled to the next level, just like the molten glass, but if your look at the beauty from the end results, it will be worth it to jump into the fire.

So now, lets jump together… into the fire.

Bring Your Fire…Inspire

Bring Your Fire…Inspire

It’s only you they’ll listen to.

 

What if that were true?

What if you were the only one that someone would listen to?  What if you were the

only who could connect with that one special someone?

Well, I just got off a great “Mindset in the Morning” call with Diane Hochman.

Her topic for today was about everyone “being on stage,” and how on the internet we all have our own personal stages to be on.

It’s so true.  There are people who are only looking for you…if you are willing to step up and be there for them.

Late last evening I was on Facebook and I noticed on a young man’s status update where he had posted…

“Will someone please talk with me?”

I’m barely acquainted with this young man, but I decided I would answer…

 

“Hey Charlie, (not his real name). I’m here. What’s going on?”

 

Charlie got back with me and we proceeded to have a conversation.

I gave him my advice and tried to inspire him to feel better about

the situation.

 

The point of this is that if I wouldn’t have brought “my fire” to

the conversation and decided to “inspire”  and uplift him, he may have still been waiting

there for someone to respond.

 

Sometimes that’s all it is in networking…

just being there and being ready and willing to

help. 

 

We may not have all the answers, but most of us have some answers.

 

We can bring a word of hope and inspiration… an ear to listen with, and some common sense.

At times we feel our answers are insignificant, but they may be very significant for someone else.

 

“Be someone for somebody…”

That’s Diane and Cathie’s moto….

 

Are you bringing “your fire” and inspiring someone today?

 

What do you do that no one else can do?

What are your gifts and talents?

Are you using them to your fullest potential?

What do you know that someone else should know?

 

So, get on your stage and bring your fire…inspire

it’s only you they’ll listen to.

Walking Through the Fire

Walking Through the Fire

 

There are times in life when walking through the fire seems like an everyday occurence.

When these times happen, we feel as if no one understands, and that the trial will last forever. 

During times of walking through the fire, I believe, turning to your faith in God, and to friends for support, is a helpful way to make it through.

 

Who do you turn to when walking through the fire?
