Are you going to the Interclean show in Amsterdam next month? We are...
Bullen has exhibited at the ISSA Interclean show in Amsterdam for over 20 years.
Bullen has many customers worldwide so it is a great way for us to meet with them and also visit with suppliers that most companies in the USA would never have contact with face to face. The show is every two years so there is a good chance of seeing something new. At the last show in 2016 we were able to contract with a company to produce our Airx Scentinel cabinet, a key part of the new Airx Care program we introduced last year. We take videos each day so you can see what we see. Weather permitting we ride bikes to the show each day with thousands of others on their way to work. They love their bikes over there. Stay tuned for more info as we get closer to the show.
5 Daily Steps for Succeeding at Anything
Successful people plan. Unsuccessful or mediocre people simply content themselves with hoping and wishing.
Here are 5 daily steps that will have you reprogramming your mind towards success in anything.
STEP 1: STOP WISHING AND HOPING. START PLANNING AND ACTING.
There's a big difference between hoping, wishing and planning. People with hopes have a vague, overarching idea of what lives they should be enjoying. They think someway, somehow, these things will happen, but they simply don't know how to get from point A to point B. They content themselves with the fact that things can change.
STEP 2: PUSH FOR THREE DAILY WINS, AT LEAST.
Now that you are focused on setting up goals the right way, I have some good news for you. You might think that your goal is too big, too ambitious or too grand. Well, think again. The truth is, there is no such thing as an impossible goal. Increase your daily wins, and the impossible becomes possible.
STEP 3: STOP MAKING EXCUSES, BLAMING AND JUSTIFYING.
Let's face it, life is rough. Life can be unfair, life can be hard. Things fall apart. What are you going to do? Are you going to wish that things aren't the way they are? Well, anybody can play that game. Anybody can look at reality based on how they think things should be. The problem is, we live in a world where things simply are.
STEP 4: SHOOT FOR THE MOON ONCE EVERY DAY.
If you want to hit the moon, aim for the sun. The truth is, the more you try to do the "impossible," the sooner you become unstoppable. When you become unstoppable, you achieve greater and greater goals.
STEP 5: CONGRATULATE YOURSELF.
According to my upbringing, it's always bad form to brag. It's always a bad idea to boast about yourself. While there's a lot of good reasons for this kind of thinking, I've allowed myself to confuse this thinking with the tendency to avoid all sorts of self congratulation. I view any situation where I allow myself to feel good about my accomplishments as necessarily bragging. I got so scared of being cocky or being viewed as prideful and conceited that I never got around to congratulating myself. Big mistake.
An iron rule of life is to get more of something, incentivize it. You need to encourage it. Blocking yourself from congratulating yourself robs you of the power and resolve to succeed. By simply choosing to feel good about what you managed to achieve, you lay the groundwork for further progress. At the very least, you replenish your personal emotional batteries so you can get the energy you need to keep pushing forward.
