Cross Point is answering the call…

What’s calling you?

Are You Tired of This?

I think many people are tired…

Tired of the status quo…

Tired of average…

Tired of unremarkable…

Tired of the same old, same old…

Tired of feeling like there’s more…

Are you?

What if you decided it’s time to…

break out,

step up,

take a chance,

be different,

dream higher,

Is an extrodinary life calling your name?  If so, it may be time to answer the call…

If You’ve Ever Wanted to Start a Business, Read This.

If the entrepreneur life intrigues you or if you’ve ever wanted to start your own business but didn’t know how, you’re going to love this…

One of the podcasts I listen to on a fairly regular basis is by 48 Days to the Work You Love and No More Mondays author, Dan Miller. Dan lives right here in Middle Tennessee and has become nationally known for helping people following their passions to find a career they love (Following your passions is one of the major themes of the Life Barometer program).  I had a chance to have lunch with him a few months ago and was very impressed with not only his knowledge but what he has done in his own business.  Today, while I was on my morning run, I listened to his podcast from June 11th entitled, “No Money, No Problem.” It’s all about removing the barriers to starting a business. It’s full of examples and stories of success that can help you with ideas of how to do this on your own. It also has a few interesting facts including:

This is True for Many of Us…

Living in our comfort zones has gotten most of us where we are today.

If you’re happy, good. 

if you want more out of life, you’re going to have to step out of your comfort zone.

So, here’s the question…

What are you avoiding that’s uncomfortable but will move you forward?

After you’ve answered that question, now ask this…

What is your next step is going to be?

A Great Quote…

I had to share this quote I just saw. It’s from Dr. Ari Kiev. I love it…

“A successful life does not result from chance, fate, or good fortune, but from a succession of successful days lived in pursuit of a worthy pursuit.”

That is a great quote! Read it again.

Now that you’ve read it again, what are you going to do with it?
