- Who is Jim Palmer?
Everybody has limiting beliefs – when Jim was young he was so uncomfortable with public speaking that he would call in sick, when it was his turn to speak.
As the boss, no one is going to punish you for not doing what you are afraid of doing, but you will not achieve the success you desire. You must personalize your inaction, and find your “Big Why.”
“How is it you think you are entitled to the same level of success, yet you are not willing to do the things that these people have done to grow their business?”
- Playing Big Versus Playing Small
No one has actually died from embarrassment. Most people discover the “things” they are afraid of, are the “things” they really enjoy doing.
Trying to be perfect kills momentum. You are not perfect, and it is okay.
- The Imposter Syndrome
Everybody has a voice that says they may not be worth it, and someone will discover the real you. For the most part, we are the same person throughout our lives, and success does not fundamentally change who we are.
- The Definition Of A Decision
Highly successful people have the ability to assess a situation, question, or opportunity, and quickly make a decision.
If you believe in the value you provide to your customers, you should encourage a decision that is beneficial to them.
- Dealing With Decision Fatigue
Hire and train right, and empower your team to make decisions as well.
Do not be afraid to take some time to refresh – make the conscious decision to rest.
- Transformational Decisions
If you expect other people to respect your time, you must respect yourself as well. Know the value of your time, and honor the commitments you make to yourself.

- Jim’s Takeaway
Stop playing the mind-game called “what if?” You cannot create a new beginning but, starting today, you can create a new ending.
Just say YES.
