Is it true that 2011 is expiring soon?
Well, if you’ve been hearing Christmas songs over the radio or seen television networks playing their Christmas videos, then you got it. Indeed, the year is closing and there’s nothing much that we can do but to face the holidays.
Last year, I really got a great time having been invited by different companies (yes, big and small) to give speeches on sales motivation and marketing success. While I did share some thoughts on what might have transpired in their business or career, I think it’s important to note that that was last year.In other words, the world has changed 365 days later. There have been so many changes that bring us all either difficult times or rare opportunity to succeed. Those changes brought about either company restructuring or painful reorganization that in some cases (probably many) led to massive firing (some call it layoff), resignations, early or forced retirement, and so on and so forth, that led demoralized the entire organization.
Those changes were drastic and dramatic. If gave some business people close their business or sell it or simply declare bankruptcy. Sure, there were exit strategies for the company owners. Truth be told, some workers are caught unaware and got surprised by some immediate announcements. With or without preparations, nobody could have changed anything.
And then some are turning their heads to the 2011 calendar only to be reminded that a month from now, a certain baby Jesus’ birth is to be celebrated, which is another way of saying that, “You need to prepare something for your god children and spend some for Noche Buena…”
Here comes another pain. Oh, wow!
Have you ever wondered why so many of us seem to stay in this cycle for years? Sure, we are not bad people. We don’t kill for a living, or steal, or do something bad, to deserve this!
Or we probably assume that by simply being good, we get a good life.
Unfortunately, the truth is not all good people have a good life. A good life can’t be achieved by being good. It can be achieved by being good and being careful at the same time. In my upcoming book. Why Good People Fail, I summarized many reasons people fail. I arrived at one word: CARELESSNESS.
Next month, your company might be doing your annual Christmas gathering. It’s OK. I think every man and women in your organization deserves a glass of wine and a toast for another year of ups and downs, joys and tears.
But why don’t we make your celebration more exciting by putting a motivational keynote in your program. It’s like a 60-minute dynamic, funny, and inspiring speech just to help you recap the entire year? What about a one final look at what happened this year and how we can make the coming year better?
Here’s the thing: We want to help you get better this year. We want help you rally your people behind your leaders. We want to make your Christmas party different from the rest. We want to help you create an entirely new experience for your employees. We want to be there to inspire and motivate your sales and marketing team, including your many other departments in your organization.
Let’s talk. We can help. We have been helping a lot of companies out there. Why don’t we explore what we can do together. I know there’s more out there. What it is, we will find out.
