How are You Different Than Michael Hyatt?


CLICK to Make Your 2017 the Best!

Hello Friends!

Those of you who know me realize that I’m all about helping others by using my gifts. Not the kind of gifts you unwrap, but those that God gave me. I recently took the STRENGTH FINDER test to uncover my gifts and hone in on exactly what I already knew, but it validated who I am.

It seems silly, doesn’t it?

Many of us don’t know or value our gifts because we live with them every day and don’t think they’re any big deal. Sometimes we can’t see them. But you ARE a big deal. You were created with a purpose. Are you working toward that now?

One of my TOP traits or strengths in the finder test was IDEATION. I love ideas and helping people find ideas to grow their businesses, to find their message, to encourage them from the outside looking in at who they are. 

What does all this have to do with Michael Hyatt? First of all, let me share a little about Michael. 

Michael S. Hyatt is an author, blogger, speaker, and the former chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers. Hyatt’s publishing career began at Word Publishing while a student at Baylor University. (Wikipedia)

Michael is a big deal in the leadership world. He’s giving away a free PDF of this BOOK to help people achieve their 2017 goals.

What does that have to do with you?

I like to watch successful people in the online business world because they are my mentors. I don’t just follow them, I really really watch them and observe what they’re doing and how they’re successful, so I’m all about reading this book. Yes, it might inspire me to tighten my 2017 goals, but there’s another reason.

When I read Michael’s title I thought, I could write this for writers, for creative people who need help with their goals.

You could do the same.

Why would you spend the time doing this? Here’s why: people like givers not takers. People like those who genuinely care about them. When was the last time someone asked you, “Hey, How are you doing today?” And you smiled or nodded, but didn’t take time to REALLY talk to that person and encourage them in their day?

If you say, I don’t have time for chit-chat, you’re missing out. You’re not focused on bringing value to others.

The people (including writers and authors but all other peeps) who make it in business care and bring value to others using their gifts, what they know.

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care,” John Maxwell

Here’s a blurb about Michael’s FREE book:

Achieve What Matters in 2017:  The 8 Strategies Super-Successful People Are Using Now to Accomplish More Next Year.

Now think of who you are, what your gifts are, and how you can bring value to those you serve writing something similar and giving it away.

I’d like to write, “The 8 Strategies WRITERS or ARTISTS are Using Now to Accomplish More Next Year.” And I might.

But first, I’m going to read this collection and WATCH Michael Hyatt because I can learn from him.

Be inspired. Be who you are and bring value to your people being YOU.

Oh … and download Michaels book so you can be the BEST YOU in 2017! Learn from the mentors!

  1. Great advice! I downloaded the book and look forward to learning from these guys! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yes, great thoughts. Earlier today I saw you had posted on FB 2 young children gloriously singing, You Raise Me Up. I can’t find again since, as FB often “shuffles” entries, but that was wonderful–thanks!

Please share your random thoughts.


Thank you for stopping by!
