If You Always Do …

If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done

You’ll Always Get What You’ve Always Gotten

If you are less than satisfied with your results that you have been achieving lately – say last year or even the last few years, then it’s time to review what it is that you are actually doing.

This goes for your personal results as well as for the results obtained in your business if that be the case.

Even if what we are doing used to be a good avenue for building our businesses, then invariably we find some day that it no longer seems to provide us with the growth we used to see – and ultimately we may find that our results are less than stellar if in fact not downright dissatisfying.

The world keeps evolving, but sometimes we individually or our businesses do not really keep up and evolve too and some day we realize that our personal results or our businesses are going nowhere or perhaps even have been dwindling over a period of time.

When finding yourself in such a position, it’s high time to look at what it is you are doing. If you find that you are doing what you have always been doing, then that may very well be the reason for your troubles. You simply have not evolved while those around you have or if nothing else your customers may have.

In my capacity of professional Board of Directors Member and in the role of High Performance Coach as well as in my role as a Business Consultant I often see this problem scenario in people’s personal results or in their businesses and I see it with myself and sometimes in own businesses.

Yet, it’s remarkable when I point this out, just how resistant people are to adopt any changes and it’s remarkable the length they will often go to with the excuses they will make up for avoiding implementing any changes whatsoever. Yes, human beings are not often very thrilled about making changes of any sort. We may say we wish for changes in our lives and our results and yet, we are so very resistant to actually commence doing something new or to go in a different direction – personally as well as professionally.

Business Consultant and High Performance Coach Mikkel Pitzner

But as the quote goes

 

If You Always Do What You’ve Always Done

You’ll Always Get What You’ve Always Gotten

 

How do you expect to achieve better results if you just keep doing the same thing?

We all heard the quote attributed to Albert Einstein that says:

 

The definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result

-Albert Einstein

 

Usually, I find that people and business owners will say to me something along the lines that “we’ll just do more of we have done” and then they hope that they will see more results.

It’s akin the people who, when constantly finding themselves with more month at the end of the money, finally come to the conclusion that they need to find a solution and then come up with something “hey, I’ll take a second job” or “I’ll work some extra hours”.

What is wrong with this picture is, that they do not stop up and review their value proposition. What value do they as an individual bring to the table? What value do they as a business bring to the market space?

Now, in contrast, I have had numerous experiences of successful outcomes and changing of trajectories of results when one has stopped up and reviewed how one could do things differently. Sometimes all it takes is small changes and other times you may find that you need to make some radical changes.

For changes in results for your personal achievements, it very often comes down to making some sincere adjustments in your daily routines and habits. It might also be changing things up completely, perhaps even opting for a complete change of direction.

If you have ever done any physical training of sorts, you may well have experienced reaching some plateau at which point it seems your results are stagnant despite how much more training you add on top of what you have been doing. Changing your routines by dropping some of the training you have been doing for some sort of exercise of completely other character and you may soon see renewed improvements come about.

When you have seen lack luster results in your personal income, you may find new opportunities and improved income by completely changing your chosen career.

For a business, sometimes the changes can come about just by restructuring your offerings, pricing, terms and conditions or a combination of same. Other times you may need to go forth with even more drastic resolve.

Is it scary? Yes!

Usually it is scary and often it is extremely scary.

Is it worth it?

Yes!

If you just continue what you have been doing and you haven’t been happy about the results, then you probably aren’t going to be happy with the results going forth. But change it up and you should soon see different results.

Will you see improved results always?

No!

There are no guarantees. You could choose a route that turns out to have catastrophic effects on your results – personally or in your business.

Is it easy?

No! Often it isn’t.

Look, if there were guarantees and if it was easy, you wouldn’t need to be scared and you would just do it – and everybody would be a millionaire.

Personally, I have found myself in this situation more than once – both personally and in business.

In my very first business that I bought, I was looking at our offering to the market. It was my limousine service business, but it could have been a business of any other industry. I wanted to implement some rather drastic changes in our rates along with several other things.

Coming (almost) from outside, I inquired with the highly experienced staff members what they thought of my ideas and was met with huge resistance: “Oh, no, if I did that, I was sure to see all clients flee and lose everything on the floor”.

There were other changes I wanted to see happen, and invariably I found myself met with shot down ideas and negative reception almost no matter what the idea was about.

Ultimately, I got rather tired of the scenario and went ahead with all my ideas and revamped the entire offering. If memory serves me right my smallest price adjustment was about 30% or so in upward direction.

The result?

After my first 14 months, my profit line had improved to the tune of a 32 fold of the result of year leading up to my take over of the business. I don’t really think I lost any clients that I can remember at said point and I believe we even managed to strengthen a lot of our relationships and our positioning in the market.

Most of the staff members incidentally were changed out during that period too.

It was very scary, but it was so worth it.

At another point, our results had stagnated and we seemed to go nowhere and met challenges left and right with our own deliverables and service levels. When it got to a point that seemed it had gotten far enough, I took a very drastic course of action and changed out the entire operational organization with new people.

This was excessively scary, but within the same year our results shot up again.

I wouldn’t normally recommend anything this drastic, but I actually had to do this once more in the time I owned the company. It was frightfully scary both times, but it was so worth it both times and I have always been happy that I did this.

Today, I might take a less dramatic avenue. I’m a little older now and would possibly proceed with more caution and mechanisms of push and pull and so on. But there’s no denying the remarkable changes in results and value of what we delivered when I did this.

But the point is that you might actually get very far in the direction you want to go, if you are willing to take the risk, get out of the comfort zone and try something new. For you as a person, it may be to uproot your path entirely and take a different road. For a business, you may realize, that you may be able make relatively massive adjustments without losing your business on the floor, perhaps even find you ended up strengthening your relations with your clients and come out with hugely improved results

So in conclusion, if you are in a place where you are not too satisfied with your results – personally or businesswise, then consider changing things up – perhaps even a lot.

What daily routines do you need to change? What routines do you need to throw out? What new action steps do you need to incorporate on a consistent and continuous basis?

What new way do you need to take?

Is it scary?

Yes.

But it may very well be worth it!

A new day that hold new opportunities

A New Day – A New Opportunity

A new day is dawning as I write this and that means a new day is offering yet a further opportunity to bring me closer to my goals and my visions.

Today is Wednesday, but it could practically be any day and the day would hold the excitement potential that this one does.

Many people wake up on a Monday morning and get a little grumpy for it means they need to show up at work again at a job that may interest them little – in which they in fact may be building someone else’s dream and not their own. Many people get so depressed about this, that in fact they may even start to ruin the pleasure and atmosphere of a day off on their Sundays, by the mere fact that “tomorrow they have to go back to work”.

I know about this – for I used to be in that situation myself. Long ago, I was working at a job that entailed a bit too much stress than I appreciated and at a job that robbed me too much of my enthusiasm for a job.

When you are working on your own vision and on your own dreams, then you don’t really have this kind of problem. When you are focused on something you find worthwhile and are putting in some serious efforts into making your dreams come true, you welcome each day that comes and that gives you the opportunity to move you one step closer.

Too many people get wound up in petty drama situations or drama discussions – on the home front or at work. They spend enormous amounts of time and energy on gossiping and following the latest story on what the neighbor did or didn’t do. The extreme version of these characters sit in front of the television keeping up to date with the latest Jerry Springer show and a bunch of other low content entertainment with day long talk show marathons.

These are the same people who tend to have a lot of dramas in their lives. They seem to attract it. Whether real drama shows up at their door step or not, they will certainly end up creating it out of the blue. Why? Cause they have no focus on something worthwhile. It’s like the brain needs to create a stimuli to ensure life is interesting. Unfortunately, a very unproductive kind of stimuli – if in fact not highly destructive.

The great thing – other than the fact that you may be spending your time, effort and work on something that is actually valuable – is that you just don’t really occupy your thoughts with all these petty dramas. You simply have no room for it in your life and you don’t have time for it.

Also because you are so engaged in bringing your dreams into fruition you are also so entertained, charged and motivated – time just whizz by.

When there’s too much drama somewhere in your life, be it at work or perhaps on the home front, it’s probably because you don’t have a dream you are actually working towards – or if on the home front, I’m afraid to say this, because your spouse doesn’t have a dream he or she is working towards.

The remedy seems clear though. Find out what really motivates you. What gets you going? What would you like in your life and for your life? What would you like see improved in the world?

Find that goal and start working towards it. Really work towards it. Soon enough and sure enough you will find you have a different sense of fulfillment in your life and soon enough you will be more excited, more energized and yes, soon enough you too, don’t really wish to spend too much energy on the latest gossip or creating dramas where there really aren’t any.

I don’t blame people who are working in less than interesting jobs to lose motivation. My favorite mentor used to say:

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

– Jim Rohn

Yes, a lot of “ordinary” jobs do not hold much of spark or promise of a better future. In addition, I don’t believe it is for everybody to become an entrepreneur and to pursue his or her own dreams that way. But I believe it is within the power of every individual to make a better life and a better world for themselves – somehow – some way. Even if it seems impossible.

So even for those who may seem stuck in dead boring jobs, I would venture to say, that when focused on worthwhile goals – perhaps somewhere else in your life, perhaps outside the work situation – you too, can make a worthwhile life and don’t have to have the repetitive never ending dramas. You too can be looking forward to every new day and know that, it’s going to be a good day, cause that’s how you create it.

You create your life, so why not make it a good one?

A new day that hold new opportunities

Ready For Take Off

I have truthfully been unsatisfied with my own results for quite some time. It’s time that this changes. It has been time for too long, but honestly, I wasn’t doing much about it.

Well, that’s about to change. This is one of those things that is great, when you have finally gotten enough – and I have finally gotten enough. I need to change this and that means I need to change.

Here’s what Jim Rohn said:

I used to say, “I sure hope things will change.” Then I learned that the only way things are going to change for me is when I change.

So as I said, I’m very willing to make the necessary changes and have already taken several steps to get it going. Sometimes the only way to really get going, is – to really get going.

For me that means that every day, I’m taking massive action steps to bring me one step forward. Forwards towards that new goal line that I have set up for myself. To keep me motivated, I revisit continuously (and certainly every morning as the day begins) what that goal line is. To keep on track, I revisit every day the time frame that I have set up for myself for reaching the goal line. It’s no good falling behind too much, for catching up can already be hard when you have set an ambitious goal to begin with. And your goal should be ambitious.

My father always said:

“The day that is spent never returns”

– Axel Pitzner

In other words, you need to ensure that you spend every day wisely and not miss your opportunity to progress and move forward. Make the most of every day you have.

I’m ready for take off. I’m ready and willing to make the changes and accept the sacrifices that they entail. I’m also ready to reap the rewards.

Yes, I need to change and though making changes is not easy for us in general, I’m so committed to it now that I actually find great excitement in it.

“For Things To Change – You Have To Change

For Things To Improve – You Have To Improve”

-Jim Rohn

The great thing is that I have amble experience in a wide variety of endeavors and I have previously had some very satisfactory results, so I know what it takes. Among other things, it takes a lot of work. I find that I’m actually looking forward to doing this work. No, not all of it is so much fun, but a lot of it can actually be, when you are focused on where it is you wish to go.

I’m privileged too, for I have several endeavors that I’m currently pursuing and they are incredibly cool and hold very big promises of what can be. I invite you to come along for the ride. Your company will be appreciated and I look forward to journeying with you.

To come along on the journey I suggest that you sign up for the future updates. No, I hate spam as much as anybody and I will not be sending you a ton of junk. I will only be sending you what I believe can add value to you, your endeavors and your life – and should I tire you after all, then you can always unsubscribe with an easy and simple click of the mouse. Also your email will rest safe with me as I will never share or sell off that information.

You might also consider following my page on Facebook and please by all means feel free to comment here below or on the Facebook page. I would love to learn what you are working on and where it is taking you. So please come join the fun.

Let me know what you are working on.

Let me know what your goals are.

I’m ready for take off. Are you?

Journey Down The Rabbit Hole

 

I’m excited as I have been working on something that I believe is really cool.

I call it The Rabbit Hole.

And I invite you to journey with me down The Rabbit Hole.

Where will it take us?

Who knows?

It’s actually very much up to you.

But The Rabbit Hole is  the entrance into vast set of opportunities and possibilities alive inside this website.

You see, my experience in so many things is vast. My personal engagement in so many businesses, spanning many non-related industries, countries and States on many different levels is huge and growing. From all of this I have picked up and continue to pick up so many things. Insights, new knowledge, new experiences from successes as well as from failures, new resources and many valuable connections and contacts.

You are invited to come along.

And you will be choosing where we will be going.

It’s a journey like none other.

At least I have never seen anything offered quite like this.

My promise to you is that I will endeavor to bring you huge amounts of value and not be wasting your time.

But it’ll require your personal attention and participation.

For unless I receive your feedback and you tell me of your choices, then I will have a hard time helping you on the way further down the Rabbit Hole.

In other words if you are a tire kicker or a whiner, then please do not apply and please do not venture forth. You’ll just be wasting not just your own time, but also mine, and quite frankly, I can waste that all by myself and don’t need your help for that.

But if you are someone who wants more. More life, more zest, more results (in any area). If you are an action taker and an implementer, then let’s go. Let’s dare take the next step and let’s see together where this will take us.

But hurry.

Time’s Ticking.

Let’s go.

Ready?

Well, then click the image below and whisk yourself onward one step closer to the entrance of The Rabbit Hole.

The Pathway to Success

Successonomics Book Cover Title Featuring Mikkel PitznerYou can define the word success.

Which is why I’m writing to you now. I don’t want you to have to walk that path alone any longer.

Over the last eight months, I’ve united with successful entrepreneurs, professionals, and experts from around the world including Steve Forbes to bring you the guide to success you’ve been waiting for. Each of us is successful in different areas, which means we’ve been through both wins and loses, and have taken action to claim the term success for ourselves. And now, we’re willing to share our methodology and mindset to guide and coach you to success in your own life.

This insight is brought to you in our new book, SuccessOnomics and it’s coming out this Thursday!

Like I said, I’ll remind you, but if you are willing to help us launch with great success, by buying the book (It’s only $19.95!), then I’ll give you HUNDREDS of dollars worth of bonuses in addition to the great ideas you’ll receive from reading the book.

The Rebound The Documentary

Entrepreneur Mikkel Pitzner To Help Produce New Documentary Film

Mikkel Pitzner, serial entrepreneur, business consultant, professional board member, social media expert and consultant, has signed on to be a Producer of a new documentary film, The Rebound, a feature-length story about an inspirational wheelchair basketball team.

Highlands Ranch, CO. – June 18, 2014 – Mikkel Pitzner, serial entrepreneur, best-selling author and speaker, has joined 3-Time Emmy® Award Winning Director and Producer, Nick Nanton, Esq., Emmy® Award Winning Producer JW Dicks, and independent filmmakers Shaina Koren and Mike Esposito, co-founders of Shaina Koren Cinematography, to produce a new inspirational documentary film. The film, titled “The Rebound,” is a feature length documentary about a wheelchair basketball team and the quest of several adaptive athletes to overcome adversity in search of new opportunities.

The Rebound The Movie ThumbThe film, 2 years in the making, provides an insider’s perspective of the sport, following the Miami Heat Wheels on their underdog quest to rise to the top ranks of the league. “The Rebound” reveals the inspiring, although at times tragic, portrait of the struggle that adaptive athletes face to realize their dreams while adapting to overcome their biggest challenges. While learning to live with their (dis)abilities, these athletes manage to find hope and work tirelessly to create life changing opportunities for themselves through the sport. 

The players featured in the story are beyond charismatic. While both hungry and passionate about the game, they must battle daily with their own internal struggles as well as the inequalities of an able-bodied world. Ultimately they all must find a way to focus on what they can do, rather than what they cannot. They do this through the sport. Wheelchair basketball provides life-changing opportunities, but is often cast aside as just another cause or charity. This film shows not only the action, but the impact of wheelchair basketball beyond the court. 

Director Shaina Koren and Producer Mike Esposito remarked, “We first discovered the sport in mid 2012 when we met the coach of the Miami Heat Wheels. After meeting the players and witnessing the sport in action, our curiosity took control and we began filming to uncover a deeper story. Two years later, we are fully immersed in the wheelchair basketball community and have dedicated 23 months (and counting) to capturing this unique story.

Mikkel Pitzner and The Blue Ocean

I will not die an unlived life


Quantcast

Mikkel Pitzner and The Blue Ocean





I came across a poem today that really spoke to me because it reminded me of something that I have recently promised myself to do going forward. The promise to myself was to be more courageous!

Too many things are not done out of fear. Out of fear of what will happen if I don’t succeed. Out of fear of, What will they say? Etc.

We often live lives unaccomplished to even a minute amount of what I believe we are all capable of – quite simply because we don’t dare.

So that’s why I made myself the promise that I MUST step out of that comfort zone, risk more, stick my nose out and just roll with the punches, but probably even more likely actually get to enjoy the fruits of the journey and of what I will become. For things to change towards what I wish them to change to – I have to change.

Anyway, here is the nice poem that I read. I’m sure you will enjoy it too.




I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance;
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.

Motivational Soccer

Motivational Mania #11

These days in Europe there is a craze going on. It is the soccer craze. The 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, commonly referred to as Euro 2012 is taking place. It is the 14th European Championship for national soccer teams organized by UEFA and the final tournament features 16 nations. Now frankly, I don’t really care much for soccer and don’t follow it at all – that is, it’s actually difficult to avoid knowing the development of the scores from all the updates plastered on my European friend’s Facebook profiles. Of course I’m rooting for my home country, Denmark, to win and I can get a little extra feeling of patriotism when I hear they are doing well, but other than that, I’m really not that interested. This is almost sacrilege to say where I’m from, but that’s the truth.

 
 

 

Motivational Soccer

Anyway, while not caring much for soccer (would you know, I actually played on a soccer team when I was very little and we actually did quite well?), I just stumbled over this one little video, that I found not only amusing, but which message can also serve as something very motivational. It’s a great story and I truly think it is worth for you to see:
