Self Belief – What is it?

Monday Motivator

Good morning,

Self belief

Last night I was having a bit of a nightmare because I had to write an email I really didn’t want to. It felt embarassing to me. Why don’t people pay on time? And it is people. Businesses are not seeing, feeling things, the people in them are.

Later when I was writing in my journal I noticed how I was writing and the mood I was in. Slumped over, eyes down, cheek resting on my hand, and writing messily.

The thought occurred to me that I didn’t believe what I was writing and it wasn’t very powerful stuff.

So I sat up, took a moment and wrote some more.That felt a lot better. I believed what I was writing and I believed in me.

It occurred to me posture plays a huge part in self belief. Sometimes all it takes to believe in yourself is to lift your chin and stick your chest out.

Take notice of your mood and how you are sitting or working this week. If you are unhappy and your posture is matching your mood. Straighten up, take a moment, smile at how ridiculous you just felt doing that, and carry on.

You will make it through the most tedious job a lot happier and a lot faster.

Have an excellent week.

The value of Thank You

Thank You

Hi there,

The value of Thank You

How often do you say thank you to someone or tell them you appreciate their efforts?

I have an experience, a few years back when we were flying back to New Zealand. We had a medical emergency on our flight which meant we heard the infamous, “If there is a doctor on board please make yourself known to the crew”, over the intercom just as we were about to take off from Brisbane.

A man in his 30’s answered the call, strode up the aisle and went about saving the life of a passenger who had just had a heart attack.

There is a whole story here that meant we didn’t get back to NZ until early the next morning. The part I want to write about is that when the passenger who answered the call got off the plane, after having done CPR for almost an hour and helping the medics, everyone kept their distance from him.

We all wanted to know what had happened to the man but also I wanted to thank him for going up and helping. This urge to tell him poked at my conciousness like a burning steel rod and so finally I did.

I asked him if he was the guy who went up, he was, shook his hand and said he had done a great thing that took guts. He put his other hand on mine, thanked me and said he appreciated it.

That felt great because how many times have you wanted to thank someone or show appreciation and didn’t think it was appropriate or were too shy and then have kicked yourself ever since?

Most will say a lot.

Get over the fear and say thank you more. Not only will the person appreciate it but you will feel great too.

Have an excellent week.

Be awesome!

Live Your Own Life

Hi there,

ARE YOU LIVING YOUR OWN LIFE?

Now, you might be wondering why I’m yelling at you this week. You might be. The thing is, this is important, living your own life is vital.

You will never find peace of mind by allowing other people to live your life for you. And they will if you let them.

The most profound fact concerning humanity is this: We have the complete unchallengeable right of prerogative over one thing, and only one thing – our own mind.

We would not have been provided with such clear dominion over our minds if we were not meant to live our own lives.

Simply by exercising this profound prerogative over your own life and mind, you will lift yourself to great heights of achievement. Exercising this prerogative is the only real approach to genius.

A genius is simply one who has taken full possession of his own mind and directed it towards objectives of his own choosing, without permitting outside influences to discourage or mislead him.

It’s quite simple and the real self has no limitations.

Have a great week.

Be awesome!

Our Struggle, Our Opportunity!

Struggle is opportunity!

Good morning,

Life is full of struggle and it is in the overcoming of that, that we advance, grow and succeed.

For example, furniture makers know the best wood comes from old trees that have been toughened by the constant battle against nature. Like the trees, our character is toughened by struggle. Choosing the path of least resistance can mean we slip through life without a purpose or a plan.

The struggle is an opportunity!

Nothing worthwhile was ever achieved without a struggle and success comes to those who face difficulty head-on, overcome it and move on to meet the next challenge.

Reframe struggle as an opportunity to grow and advance. Sometimes, as you know that might only be in character because the struggle can be real. But a strong character is one who is remembered fondly and longer than someone who has slipped through life.

Have a great week and embrace the struggle.

A Tale of Nails

Nǐ hǎo!

#TBW (Throwback Monday) This week a contribution from Scott Olsen over at PropertySuite.co.nz. It has a very good lesson in it.

Once upon a time there was a boy with a very difficult character. His father gave him a bag full of nails and told him to drive one nail into the garden fence every time he loses his patience and/or has an argument with someone.

The first day the boy drove 37 nails in the garden fence.

In the following weeks, the boy learns to control himself and the number of nails driven into the fence gets lower every day: The boy discovers that it is easier to learn to control himself than to hammer nails in the fence.

At last, the day comes when the boy does not drive any nails into the garden fence. Then he goes to his father and tells him that today he did not need to hammer any nails. The father talks to his son in front of the fence and tells him: My son, you have behaved well, but look how many holes you have left in the fence.

It will never be the same. When you have an argument with someone and abuse them, you leave them with wounds like these ones in the fence. You can stab a man and then take the knife out, but you will always leave a wound. It does not matter how many times you say sorry, the scars will stay. A wound caused by words hurts just as bad as a physical wound.

A few lines to meditate…

Give people more than they expect.
Do not ever make fun of other people’s dreams.
Speak slowly, but think quickly.
If someone asks you a question that you do not want to answer, smile and ask him: “Why do you want to know?”
When you lose, do not miss the lesson – write it down.

Remember the Three R’s:

  • Respect yourself

  • Respect others

  • Responsibility for all your actions.

Smile when you answer the phone, who calls will be able to hear it in your voice. Remember that sometimes not getting what you want may be quite fortunate.

If you reached the end of this, you are truly amazing 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this week’s Monday Motivator.

Be awesome!

What is the BEST Marketing about?

Welcome to this week’s MondayMotivator 🙂

 ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌  ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌
What the BEST Marketing About

Hola!

Something different today, marketing. One of my favourite subjects 🙂

And I’ve been asking myself, what is the best marketing about?

The finest marketing ever created — and ever to be created — is not about your product. It is not about your service and not about your company. It is not about your features, not about your benefits, not even about your competitive advantages.

It is about your prospect and customer and how what your offer will change their lives for the good.

Most marketers create marketing under the silly assumption that prospects are asking “Who are you? What is your product or service? When are you open? Where are you located?” The reality is that the only real question in the customer’s mind is “Why should I care?”

Unconsciously, your prime prospects are saying, “Tell me a story that has me in it. Don’t tell me stuff about you. Tell me clearly what’s in it for me. Can you save my time, increase my income, reduce my stress, bring more love into my life or cause people to think highly of me?” If you can’t do that, better leave those prospects alone because you’re wasting their time and your money.

We learn these age-old secrets Roy H.Williams, who also reminds us that it is pure mythology to buy into that old lie telling you “If a man can make a better mousetrap, the world will make a beaten path to his door.” Many better mousetraps have been built, points out Mr. Williams, but most were too high-priced or poorly marketed to unseat the one we’ve been using since before the turn of the century.

Another home truth charmingly related by Williams is that it is far less important who you reach than what you say. Researchers and readership studies have enabled us to put our target audience right in the crosshairs but don’t give us much of a hint as to what we should say to that audience. The sad result is that most marketers say the wrong thing.

So much emphasis has been placed upon reaching the right people that marketers tend to become overconfident and neglect the crucial power of their message. In the science of selecting target markets, we have lost the art of saying the right things — of persuading — and the art of commitment — of repeating our message. We must remember that marketing is part business, part science, part patience and part art — the art of committing to persuading people to want what you are offering them.

Having been involved in the process of creating and presenting marketing, I’ve learned that the talent to motivate people, to say exactly the right thing to the right people is usually diluted by other people in the chain of command who must approve marketing. Most of the time, they are scared to death of offending somebody and so they suggest a compromised message.

There is no marketing strategy so brilliant that it cannot be made utterly ineffective through compromise. I’ve seen compromise and layers of approval kill many great marketing campaigns, but I’ve never ever seen them create one. Not even close.

Take the tale of the shoeshine boy whose rag kept popping and cracking with activity, but the shoes being shined looked ordinary. The wizard says most marketing is the same way. It’s just “poppin’ the rag” but the deep shine never appears.

To finish off today you might appreciate William’s tale of Cecil and Fat Charlie, each of whom operates a produce market. Cecil markets his as having the most accurate scales in town. Fat Charlie, whose prices are a mite higher than Cecil’s, always gives customers something extra. They order five pounds of potatoes. They get five pounds plus a plum or a peach, perhaps a handful of cherries. And always a smile. Fat Charlie calls this “the delight factor.”

Even though Cecil is unquestionably the town’s lowest cost provider of produce and has a predictable customer base of hardcore bargain hunters, Fat Charlie gets much more word-of-mouth marketing, higher average tickets due to his free samples, greater profits, and more delighted customers. Fat Charlie knows well what the best marketing is about 😉

Have a great weekend,

TEAM

Bonjour!

This week I’ve been thinking about teams and how they work. The idea of having a team is people focused on a part they’re particularly good at and so making the whole, That, Much, BETTER!

I love a good acronym and here’s one for ‘team’. It’s an oldie but a goodie.

TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More/Miracles.

Working together we can create a synergy that means we are far greater than the sum of our parts.

We can equate that to 1+1=16 or 1+1=60 or 1600.

The multiplier effect of our combined minds is limitless. And in my opinion, it can be much more fun.

When you’re seeing another point of view, and working towards a Win/Win situation, it will always result in greater understanding and productivity.

TEAM. There’s no I in there but U should be in 1 to maximise and energise yourself.

Have a successful week.

Do you live in Prime Time? ⏱️

Welcome to this week’s MondayMotivator 🙂

Do you live in Prime Time?

Hi there,

I have a question for you.

Do you live in Prime Time?

Prime time is that period between 6 and 10 pm during which most people are watching television. Commercials in prime time are the most expensive costing thousands more.

Your success in life will take a huge leap when you stop watching other people making money and start living your own dreams and goals in prime time. Time is the ultimate equal opportunity employer. Time never stops to rest, never hesitates, never looks forward or backward.

Life’s raw material is in the now, this moment, which is why how you spend your time is far more important than all the material possessions you may own or positions you may obtain. You can renew your supply of many things, but like good health, time spent is gone forever.

Each human being in every hemisphere and time zone has precisely 168 hours a week to spend. And some of the most precious hours occur in prime time.

Consider this: most of your daytime hours are spent solving other peoples problems. The time you have in the evenings and on weekends is all you have to spend on yourself, on your own dreams and goals, and personal development.

The following will make a difference in your life:

  • Have supper with your loved ones at least two to three times per week.

  • A television set is an appliance. It should be used, at most, for two hours at a time.

  • Instead of watching television why not read a good fiction or non-fiction book, write a letter, engage in a hobby, call a friend or someone in need of encouragement on the phone, go out to a different restaurant, a home show, an entrepreneurial show, a musical recital, a play, a fitness class, or cultural event.

Use prime time to live the kind of life others put on layby.

Live in “Prime Time” and have a successful week,

Motivate Yourself to Achieve Success

Welcome to this week’s MondayMotivator 🙂

Motivate Yourself to Achieve Success.

Good morning!

In my opinion, the greatest reward success [insert your idea of success here] brings is joy.

Although we often assume that the accumulation of wealth is the only measure of success, it is but one measure. It is an important one to be sure. But, I believe that true success is marked by the satisfaction of knowing you have done a job and done it well – that you have achieved the goal you set for yourself.

For example, Einstein never attained great wealth in his lifetime. But could anyone say he was unsuccessful? Maybe in proving several theories before he passed yet his success lives on today.

So, how can you motivate yourself to succeed? How can you feel the joy of being successful?

The answer is to develop a burning desire for something you wish to have in order to reach the greater goal you have set yourself.

Take the time and set yourself a definite goal in life.
Write it down.
Commit it to memory.
Direct every thought and all your energies to making it come true.

This will give you the strength to stop momentary setbacks throwing you off course. You will instead look for the benefit in them and get back on track to your goal quickly.

Like the great Stoic philosopher Seneca said, “If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable.”

Be awesome this week 🙂
