Day in. Day Out.

One of my heroes is John Maxwell. I was recently listening to a lesson he taught and he said something that I thought was extremely profound. He said this: 

“When you think of John Maxwell, don’t think of brilliance, don’t think of success, don’t think of the books or the lessons, etc. When you think of John Maxwell, what you need to think is this: Day in. Day out. Day in. Day out. Day in. Day out. I’m so boring!”

What does John attribute his success to? Showing up and giving your best everyday. Day in. Day out. Day in. Day out. My high school football coach said it like this, “Day to day intensity, week to week consistency, builds champions!” 

In his book Today Matters, John said, “The secret to your success will always be found in your daily agenda.

So, how does this apply to you? Everyday you need to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I showing up and giving my best everyday?
  • Is what I am doing today going to get me to where I want to go tomorrow?
  • What excuses am I making for not giving my best today?
  • What is the risk of not showing up everyday? What could I miss out on?

Make the commitment right now that you are going to show up day in and day out. Day in and day out in your marriage, your career, your walk with God, your choices, and everything else you do.

It will drastically change your life.

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
