It has been said that networking with strangers can be seen as wasting your time. Effective networking is all about building relationships so start slowly and work up. Why? A friend of mine was complaining, “I’m doing 2-3 networking events a week – and I’m worn out.” I then asked why they felt doing so much networking was important and they replied, “One of my marketing goals is to do at least 1 networking event a week.” I then told them that their goal was just 1 each week, so why do more than that? The point is to build business relationships and gain trust. This means less is better, rather than Continue reading
With all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!
I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading
One thing that always stays with me, even in the hardest of times is never give up! There is only one absolutely CERTAIN way to fail, which is giving up on your dreams and ambitions because you have limiting beliefs. You must remember that YOU are responsible for your actions and your goals. A dream is only a dream if you don’t take action to achieve it. Limit yourself or listen to others limit you and you will never know what is possible.
I could say that quitting is the “easy way out”. Perhaps it is and you will no doubt have your own opinion on this. I can speak from experience about giving up, even though I have since started doing what I gave up many years ago.
This is not Continue reading
It’s actually quite obvious that without focus, it doesn’t really matter what your passion, there is no substance to carry that passion forward. Focus drives passion in such a way that it helps you to define goals. Goals need laser focus and passion needs to create the goal, so each is intertwined to be sure. Knowing what your passions are should therefore help to create the focus you need to reach your goals and be happy in your life. And that happiness is because you’re doing what you are so passionate about.
Certainly lots to think about.
So… Continue reading
Everyone needs to have a dream. A dream that encourages them to work hard to achieve it. The problem we have is the limitations other people put on us or we put on ourselves and we won’t accept that impossible is just a word. Who has the right to say “you will never be like whoever” or that is “just a pipedream”? It’s your dream and only you have the right to go for it or to give up. The dream you have requires action, not limitations or criticism by people who don’t share your own vision. If everyone worked with limitations, there would never be a new world record, any gold medal would never be won and big business people with high influence would never exist.
Don’t let your past dictate your future. What is gone is gone – forever. Because you have had a few ups and downs doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish great things. Now is the time to move on, to become what you want: to be the best in anything you choose to do and design your own destiny.
I have some simple tips to share with you that can help you to move in the direction of manifesting your destiny to accomplish many great things.
To be able to connect with other successful people in your Continue reading
Your attitude to work and to life will have a really big impact. We’ve all heard the glass half full or glass half empty way of looking at things. Both are the same thing in practice, but can also have a completely different meaning and depend on the right attitude to your action in getting what you want from life. You have the ability in you to achieve anything you want to, but you may not yet realize it. If your attitude is positive, negative or somewhere in the middle, you really can take control of your life and set yourself free! Everyone has potential and it’s time Continue reading
Be careful what you believe, because it’s odds on that’s what you will experience. Your inner belief system is a mechanism that is yours and yours alone. It’s powered by your innermost principles, your desire and controlled by your thoughts and actions. In fact, you could say that your success is measured by the strength of your belief.
What do you desire? Many people don’t have a clue what they want. They seem to know what they don’t want, so logically it shouldn’t be too hard to work out. It’s time to evaluate your goals and determine the goals you truly Continue reading
