Change The World By Your Example, Not Your Opinion

by Mike Phillips

To me, this means take action, be a change agent. I was on Facebook the other day and read this statement. “Change the world by your example, not your opinion.” To me, this is a profound statement. People’s opinions get shared significantly more often than than anyone will opt to do something about a given situation. There are […]

What If… It’s NOT about the money?

by Mike Phillips

I’m in the Automotive Industry. I’ve been involved in multiple discussions recently, where salespeople are voicing openly that many of the prospects (customers) that they are working with right now, are only focused on the money (price). The prospect, or “lead” if you will, only wants the lowest price, and so on, and so on. […]

Selling the car to the customer…

by Mike Phillips

Now, some may think this is an absurd statement on selling, but it’s oh so true and a bit profound. As I was conducting my training session yesterday, I made the statement below, in front of many salespeople. Immediately they were all nodding in agreement and it became a fairly lengthy topic of discussion. “It […]

The NOW can be greater than the NEXT

by Mike Phillips

Often, we get all fired up and focused on what we should be doing next. Write the next blog, work on our business, building, growing and becoming something bigger than we are right now. We continue to push and work on the next important thing. While, the next thing is certainly important make sure that […]

What If You Tried Until…?

by Mike Phillips

When adults are trying to tackle a task or chasing a goal,  most people will make the attempt, once, twice, maybe three times… then quit. There is no more try, left in them. So whatever it is that they were trying to do just stops. Meanwhile, success takes consistency, it takes resilience and tenacity. Consistency is […]

Today: It’s not the whole race.

by Mike Phillips

There are many things in life that are races; just not everything. I do believe you can compare your life to a foot race. Life is more of a marathon style training session. It’s a long ride. Besides that… there are a whole bunch of different racing styles. You will compete in many races and […]

How Did You Do?

by Mike Phillips

I titled today’s blog like I did, because I have this awesome physical trainer/weight trainer/aerobics instructor/ok… I’m not sure what his title really is. His name is Quentin at LifeTime in Colorado Springs, but he introduces these non-stop crazy routines into class workouts (Yes Quentin, it’s you… you’re welcome). And after he gives you 72 […]

Value in Friendship

by Mike Phillips

There is deep value in friendship. Real friendship is one of the best activities in the world. I say it’s an activity, because friendship has to contain a genuine love for another person, which takes action (love is a verb). A genuine interest in another person. There is no demand and often no major complaints […]

Resolution or Revolution – Heck, just do it! 2017!

by Mike Phillips

Its that time of year again… NEW YEARS DAY! Whoopee! It’s the time that (most) everyone decides to make their yearly commitments and resolutions to do better…  workout more, work harder, be more awesome, be a better husband, father or family member, and so on. I have a question for you on  this New Years […]
