October 30th Wisdom Search Call

October 30, 2012 Thought-Filled Tuesday

Last nights Wisdom Search call was very informative and thought provoking. I wanted to say a special thank you to each of you that took the time to arrange your busy schedules to be with us. You make the time incredible.

There have been some of you that asked about maybe moving The Power of Gratefulness to November 13th rather than on the 6th? Let me know your thoughts about relocating The Power of Gratefulness to following week.

Also, speak to me about topics you would enjoy doing a Wisdom Search on, and I will develop the topic and present it on one of our Thought-Filled Tuesdays.

Email me at wisdom@mattupton.net with your thoughts and topic suggestions. When I can do anything for you, just ask. 209.732.matt(6288)

Also, take a look at the comment section here at www.mattupton.net and post your comments about the topics/subjects we have addressed together and what they have done for you personally and professionally.

Step out and Go For It

Step Out and Go For It

Standing on the bridge with four of my friends, looking down at the water. It must have been 7,000 feet below or so??? For quite sometime we had talked about jumping from the bridge to the river below, yet had never followed through with our talk.

There has been many times since that day that I have found myself at the edge of a dream, something that I had talked about often yet never done anything about it. Each time I reflect back on that day with my friends standing at the edge I can hear them say, “You go first, then we will go”.

What I learned that day is most people need someone else to go first. I also learned that all that say they will follow do not.

When you go first, it must be primarily because you can do nothing else but go. It must be more about you and who you are than the hope that others will follow. If you go with the goal of everyone following you will be discouraged. The hard truth is that there are more talkers than leapers. Leap for you and you will discover greater peace.

Go for your dream, step out and be your dream. You, go First.

Take a LEAP of Faith

There comes time in everyone’s life where an opportunity presents itself that is bigger than anything you have experienced before.

I remember hearing just jump and all will be fine. Yet, I believe that is more about knowing where you are and where you want to go as you take the LEAP of faith.

Together we will discover the four foundational ULP’s (Universal Life Principles) necessary in making a successful LEAP of Faith.

Terrible Tuesday or Terrific Tuesday?

How Big Are You?

The storm of opposition bears down on you to reveal just who you are and what you are made of. What will be revealed through this high level difficulty in your life and character?

We can turn and run from the issues that are this storm or we can turn and face it. Turning and facing the storm of opposition takes commitment and courage.

The person who faces the winds of adversity within the storm is the person who is living by eight ULP’s (Universal Life Principles). They learned them through living through rather than running from opposition.

You can live through the storms of opposition in your life as well. Tonight at 7:00pm we will spend an hour in a Wisdom Search learning the eight ULP’s of Discovering the Opportunities that are Embedded within Opposition.

Magnificent Monday

Magnificent Monday

 

Not long ago, I heard a keynote speaker say more people have heart attacks while driving to work on Monday mornings than any other time? He went on to say that he believed the heart attacks came on because these people were going somewhere they hated going.

 

The stress of the work place can be unbearable at times. Doctors administer medications to alleviate pain that is directly rated to the pressure and dislike that is connected to the job.

 

You may not be able to just quit your job? You may not be able to relocate within the job? Yet you can bring another person to work.

 

Yes, with a fresh new perspective you can bring a new you to work. This new you, your better self, will have eight new attitudes that will help you discover the opportunities that are embedded within opposition, stress, and difficult situations.

 

Thought Filled Tuesday at 7:00pm we will host a Wisdom Search to Discover How to see the Opportunities that are Embedded within Opposition.

 

You can participate from your phone by dialing the Wisdom Search phone number (805) 399-1000 and then entering your Wisdom Search Access Code of 593915.

Good??? Bad???

Good??? Bad???

 

You are running late for the meeting. As you drive into the parking lot you scan it to see who else is running late. No such luck, everyone is here, Once again you are the only one late.  The closer you get to the meeting room the tenser you get.

 

Today is the day that you are supposed to do the hospitality greeting at the church. Yet, the starting time for worship has come and gone, and you have not even made it inside the building.

 

There he is, the guy that is your current problem coworker. You and him just do not seem to get along any longer. Thee was a time you two seemed to be almost buddies. Now something has wedged itself between the two of you and the consequence is stress and anxiety every time you see him.

 

Is it possible that something good can come from these situations? There is a ULP (Universal Life Principle®) which states “all things work together for good”.

 

I want to invite you to a Wisdom Search® Tuesday October 23, 2012 at 7:00pm where we will search for the eight attitudes that will reveal the opportunities that are embedded within opposition.

 

Plan to attend by blocking the time on your calendar and then call the Wisdom Search Number at (805) 399-1000 and once you arrive enter your access code of 593915. If you have any questions you can reach me at 209.732.matt or email me at wisdom@mattupton.net

The Power of “NO”

The Power of “NO”

No, now means something different to us as adults then it did when we were kids. Grandchildren do not define “no” the same way we do either. You and I hear no and we view it as “not going to happen”, children and grandchildren hear “not at this moment, come back and ask again and again until I say yes”.

I believe that we will be happier, fulfilled, and experience abundance when we return to the same definition of “no” that we once had. When I was a budding salesman selling Christmas and all occasion cards door to door, “no” meant hurry and get to the next door it may be the yes I am looking for. This thinking has made me a top producer in almost every endeavor I have set my hands to ever since.

Many people are out of work today. Some of them want to work and are out there looking. It takes an average of 12 no’s to get a potential employer to say yes, ‘lets sit down and talk about you working here”. It takes on average an additional 12 interviews to secure a job in today’s market. Those that locate their new job must translate no the way they did as a kid? They do not give up and quit looking; they just keep going and knowing they will find it.

There is power in the word no. You and I get to choose which power a no has, negative and limiting or positive and life launching. I challenge you to go out and locate some no’s and let them become your vitamin that gives you strength and courage to keep pressing forward. Become that child who finally gets what you want because they do not give up.

This Tuesday night at 7:00pm at Ask Matt Upton we will explore the eight attitude shifts we must make to uncover the opportunities that are hidden within opposition. Please let me know that you plan to attend by emailing me at wisdom@mattupton.net or calling me at 209.732.matt(6288).

Is it Opposition or Opportunity?

Is it Opposition or is it Opportunity

Difficult times are part of the lives of the wealthy, the poor, the good and the bad. There are many situations and circumstances that we can no power over, yet we can choose our response to them. It is our response to the conditions that creates the following circumstances.

Our internal thinking, attitudes, and emotions determine what we see, hear, and feel. This determines if we are put down through opposition or see the opportunity within the circumstances and become bigger and better.

This Tuesday night at 7:00pm at Ask Matt Upton we will explore the eight attitude shifts we must make to uncover the opportunities that are hidden within opposition.

Think Upward

Everyone faces situations in their life. You can face it or run from it. The creativity to face it is located in how you think about the situation.

If you believe that there is nothing within or about the situation that can be good, then you are thinking down.

If you approach the situation (even as difficult as it can be) that there could be something within it that you can learn and be a better and bigger person, than you are thinking upward.

Thinking upward always bring with it new insight and new wisdom.

Join me tonight at 7:00 for a lively discussion on the Five Steps the Reluctant Leader must Take to gain Confidence.
