Word of today – Mentorship

Each day I get a small video from John Maxwell, it´s called «A minute with Maxwell» and today it was about mentoring. So I had to put it out on my web

Today’s «A Minute with Maxwell» video lesson was filmed during my Live Event in Orlando, Florida where I spent three days with my team members that are a part of my John C. Maxwell Coach, Speaker and Teacher Certification Program.

Here is the video

And his «A Minute with Maxwell» is like a path to success. It’s a video coaching program where I come along side of you each day, teach you the meaning of a word and add value to your life. And then you can ‘spread the word’ and inspire others around the world. Just one word a day can make a big difference in your life-and those of many others!»

How do I plan for 2013

Going from 2012 to 2013 got me to think about Confucius when he talked to his student about planning.

The student: Where do you think I should go?

Confucius:It depends on where you wanna go

The student: It doesn´t matter that much

Confucius: Then it doesn´t matter where you go

It´s a good story about planning and I am sitting and planning my 2013, wanna know where I want to go. First of all I think it is important to know where you come from and what you have in your baggage. Therefor i use «The wheel of life».

This one I found here


This is my platform, this is where I come from. I find myself between 1 and 10, and even if it´s only 3, that is my baggage. I have to start from there…

I then start by brainstorming the 8 dimensions of my life that is important for me. When you do the same you can put in and take out which dimensions that are important for you.

My dimensions are: Business/Career – Finances – Health – Family and friends – Romance/My marriage – Personal growth – Fun and recreation – Physical Environment.

I will then have identified all the dimensions and I will find areas that need attention, meaning below 7. I will then find actions needed to work on regaining balance and there is where most of my goals for 2013 are.

F.ex. if I don´t spend enough time with my friends one of my goals for this year would be to find more time to meet my friends. And on Business/Career I put in my two big projects for 2013. Then I take f.ex. one of the projects and set up goals on short and long terms.


This is one way to do it, earlier I wrote about a Life Plan, thats also a very good way to do it. I guess the most important here is that you actually do it, planning there is…

Convictions for successful living

Here are 7 convictions which I have found that people with success are having:

  • I feel the fear and act anyway
  • If I follow my heart, I’ll never fault
  • I do what I want
  • I know I can provide value
  • I create my own reality
  • I can not help
  • I am humble and focus on the good in what happens

How well do you know yourself and how you react. Sit down and decide to integrate at least 2 of these beliefs and lay a plan for how you will do it.
