Second Chances and Do-Over's - Part 1

With Groundhog Day rapidly approaching, my mind has turned to
the elusive do-over.

The 1993 Bill Murray flick named for February 2nd has become
a cult classic. For those who haven't seen it the movie's plot
centers around a crotchety guy named Phil Conners, played by
Murray. Phil is forced to endure the same day over and over
until he gets it "right."

The golden opportunity that Phil gets is to explore all of the
different ways to play out his day. First, we meet the mean and
selfish Phil, then the woman chasing Phil and then the do-gooder

Finally, just when all hope is lost and Phil truly accepts his
fate, we meet the real Phil. And on the morning of February 3rd,
we watch as Phil wakes up in the arms of the woman he loves.
It's a new day, and he's a renewed man.

For Phil, the do-over worked. It taught him about the man he
was on the inside -- the guy he was hiding from the world in
favor of the person he thought people expected him to be.

When Phil stopped caring about what others wanted from him, thought
about him or believed about him, he was able to be his authentic
self. And that proved to be the man who all the women in the movie
fell in love with.

So, what can we learn from Phil?

That do-overs are indeed possible, and when something in your
life goes terribly wrong, it is possible to fix it.

To wipe the slate clean, as we learn from Phil, you have to first
get honest -- honest with yourself, honest about your intentions,
and honest about the effort you have put forth.

In this case, I want to talk with you about a second chance to
make 2012 the best year of your life.

When the novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald famously wrote that "there
are no second acts in American lives," he was obviously incorrect
and ignorant to the fact that human beings have an enormous capacity
for overcoming adversity both personal and professional, with
intelligence, patience, and panache.

Comebacks, redemption and second acts are ubiquitous in our culture
today: the celebrity who turns a life of addiction into one of
redemption and purpose; the politician who falls from grace and
rises to create a nonprofit that helps the disadvantaged, and a
good number of people who recommitted to their goals and made
wonderful things happen in their lives.

So often it is a major setback -- cancer, divorce, job loss, the
death of a loved one, bankruptcy, or an accident -- that puts
the spotlight on our lives and shows us the way to a meaningful
"second act."

Sooner or later we all hits the skids. It happens to everyone.
At some point we all wind up with our backs against the wall
and need a second chance in order to make a comeback.

Yes, we all get knocked down, but successful people know how
to pick themselves back up.

So how do we do it?

Stay tuned for tomorrow's email (part 2) where I'll provide you
with a HIGHLY EFFECTIVE solution that will rock your world.

Keep an eye out as you do not want to miss out on the second
part of this message.

Second Chances and Do-Over's - Part 2

In part one of this series, we discussed how Groundhog Day has
become a metaphor for do-overs and second chances.

Several hundred people commented on the inspiring message of
hope and I trust you'll love what I have to share with you in
this second part.

Today, I am going to reaffirm that do-overs are indeed possible,
and when something in your life goes terribly wrong, it is possible
to fix it.

The following are five rules that you can use to pick yourself
up, get back in the game and make 2012 the best year of your life.

Here's your playbook for success!

Comeback Rule #1 - Refuse to Die

Those with the character to triumph in the end tend not to allow
the indignity of failure to force them down. A comeback accepts
disaster, laughs in its face, and crawls to his feet again.

Do not let failure or setbacks define you, refuse to die, get
back in the game, and play to win!

Comeback Rule #2 - Decide to Fight

Comebacks have an inner sense of justice that refuses to be
violated. They manage their emotions, reminding themselves of
where they've been and why they're here, and resolve that nothing
will stop them. Decide that you are going to fight, take massive
action and never ever give up nor give in.

Comeback Rule #3 - Get Mad

Pain, failure, loss and embarrassment are such great motivators
and you should allow adversity to force your hand to make new
choices and take new actions.

Get mad, get angry, and get busy on turning things around. Sucking
your thumb and hoping for a miracle is not the answer.

Comeback Rule #4 - Focus on Results

Once you're on your way, don't look back and do not allow a previous
faux pas slow you down. A hundred distractions, doubts, and setbacks
will haunt someone recovering from disaster. The true champion
focuses on results, nothing else.

Comeback Rule #5 - Change

Perhaps the most difficult notion to face is the fact that second
chances and do-overs require you to reexamine all of the assumptions
that currently operate in your life and business.

Change and growth is much more than simply acquiring new knowledge
and insights; it's also crucial to unlearn old knowledge that has
outlived its relevance.

It's ONLY when you change your behavior that you can break free
from the eternity of ruinous repetition and kick open the gates
to unlimited prosperity and I'd like to show you how.
