Focus on one thing. One thing! What's one thing in your world that you want to change? Just one thing, not two, not three, not four, not five, one thing. One thing in your, in your health, one thing in your money, one thing in your joy, one thing in your relationship One Thing. Peter Drucker the famous business guru who trained so many business executives says this: The effective executive cannot focus on more than two things at one time. More than likley you got a lot of stuff you're focusing on. Don't try to change 50 things in your life at one time. Pick one thing. One thing! What's one thing you want to change? Pick that one thing, give it 100% to that one thing and figure out and do the one thing that you want to change in your life, and when you change one thing and you get that rolling you'll find you'll be able to change another. What's one thing that you want to change? This is Coach Bronner! I'll see you tomorrow,

This is Coach Bronner. I am out in the wild and as you can see the sign behind me says "Caution Alligator Habitat." That means there may be some gators somewhere around. Sometimes in life you do wander into situations. You may even work or potentially even live in a situation. Where you're dealing with alligators, snakes, wolves and all kind of things not necessarily on four legs, but on two legs. And when you're dealing with situations where you have to deal with potentially harmful creatures. You need to, first of all, not be afraid, not be paranoid. Walk with what I call a sense of heightened awareness. And number two you have to have a plan of action. Whether that action is simply evasive action, confrontation..... "What was that? What was that? What was that!? A false alarm, but you do need to be prepared, you need to be aware and you don't need to be scared.
This is Coach Bronner with the principle for today. If you base your life on the principle "I want to have a happy married relationship," 99% of your decisions are already made. You don't have to make a decisions about whether or not you're going to be unfaithful to your husband, or unfaithful to your wife. 99% of those decisions are already made. When you make a decision that you're going to have a happy productive relationship, you already know, you have to spend some time, you have to spend some focus, you have to spend some love, and some energy on your partner. You already know that. You cannot say, "Well I'm going to be mean to them, I'm not going to consider them, I'm going to be selfish." When you base your life on principles 99% of your decisions are already made. This is Coach Bronner. I'll see you tomorrow.
There is a statement that you are the aggregate of the five closest people you run with. Who are you hanging with? Who do you spend the most time with? Whoever you are around, they influence you and there is a tendency of every area of your life to be just like theirs. So who are you spending your time with, your money, your relationships, your health, your spirit, your happiness, and your joy, everything that you are, often depends upon who you hang around, because they influence you and you influence them. You have a tendency to have what they have, to think how they think, and to go where they go. So the question is, who are the five people you're spending most of your time around? And the bigger Question is.... Do you want your life to be like theirs? If you don't, you might need to make a change, because birds of a feather flock together and they also go to the same destination. Who are you running with? If the people around you are not going where you want to go. You need to change. This is Coach Bronner. I'll see you tomorrow.
I was 38 years old before I got married. A lot of people used to ask me while I was single, “You're 30 years old and you're not married yet?” You know what my answer was? “No! But I'm not divorced either.” I run into so many people who are in such a rush, because they're single, who are just anxious, they're in a hurry, they're just in a rush, they just want to get married, yet so many people come to me for coaching and counseling, because they ARE married and have run into all kind of mess, and all kind of turmoil, and all kind of HELL! So single people I tell you this, “Don't rush to marry!” Take your time and do it right; it is better to be right than rushed. Trust me. Take your time. I was 38 before I got married, 40 before we had our first child, my latest child, I was 50 years old; everything turns out great. Take your time! It's better to have it right than rushed This is Coach Bronner I'll see you tomorrow.
Whatever you're doing right now, whatever you're in right now, This moment is not your life, understand that. Whether it's really, really good or really, really bad. This moment is not your life. This moment is not your life but how you handle it, how you view it becomes a pattern. It becomes a habit that can become your life. And this can make a tremendous difference in your happiness or depression. It's not this moment, it's how you handle this moment, and the next moment, and the next moment, and the next moment, and the next moment. That becomes you, so whatever is going on in your world right now, how are you handling it? Do you really see the joy? Do you really see the benefit? Do you really see the beauty? You see the good in it, that becomes your life. If you see the bad, that becomes your life. But it's not this moment, this moment is not your life. This is Coach Bronner! I'll see you tomorrow.
In the movie, "King Arthur Legend of the Sword," the young king struggled with a magical sword 'Excalibur' and his guide told him this, "You are resisting the sword; the sword is not resisting you." How many of us have had things that have just been presented, doors that have been opened, but we refuse to walk through? The door is open; walk through it! What opportunities have you simply shut the door to? What opportunities are waiting for you right now? What opportunities stand to take you to another level? The door is open, walk through it. Stop resisting opportunity! We often resist the opportunity; the opportunities don't resist us. This is Coach Bronner! I'll see you tomorrow.
A king once asked his wise men, I want you to give me something that would last me whether I'm doing great or whether I'm doing terrible. Give me a statement that will help me through anything I have in life, great or terrible. The wise men thought for a few days, and they came back to the king with this statement, these four words: THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Whatever you're going through right now, whether you've just won the lottery or whether you can't pay your apartment rent this month, whether you're going through, 'THIS TOO SHALL PASS'. Life is not a moment, it's how you view all the moments in your life. And if you keep this in mind you'll find you'll be a lot happier and a lot more peaceful, because, 'THIS TOO SHALL PASS'. This is Coach Bronner! I'll see you tomorrow.
This is Coach Bronner. I am about to get ready to go across a bridge. Often in life we face bridges. We face decisions that are truly bridges in our life. And a bridge generally takes you over something that you cannot get over on your own without great difficulty. It takes us from one side to the other side. From a side of misery to a side of comfort. To get from a side of depression to a side of joy. These are bridges over some of the obstacles that we have faced. Some of the things that hold us back in our lives but we must cross the bridge. We have to recognize it, see it, walk up to it, and walk across that bridge. Get moving cross your bridge, to the better side. This is Coach Bronner. I'll see you tomorrow.
This is our third son Christain Bronner, who just finished 9th & 10th grade in high school. Christain made a goal that he would make all A's througout high school. In the 9th grade he had nothing but A's he just finished the 10th grade he has nothing but A's he has a perfect 4.0 GPA He made a goal and a declaration before he entered high school that he would make all A's and he's done it. And he has a higher goal that he shall attend an Ivy League college. When you make a goal, and you focus, and you state that goal specifically it increases your probability that you will reach your goal. Just like Christain you do the same thing. What do you really want? What have you stated, what have you written, and what are you targeting? State you goal and you will get it. This is Coach Bronner. I'll see you tomorrow.
