Avoid Making this Mistake!

Today I wanted to talk to you about Competition!

Let me ask you –When you see someone online that is doing really well in their business. They are travelling, their photos are exotic and or has more likes or fans than you?

Do you Feel Jealous?

What happens in your body? This is very real! So pay attention 😊

You might be saying to yourself – “I show up every day! And try and try.. Why isn’t my business growing?”

Today I am going to give you 3 reasons to stop comparing yourself to others!

1) You have NO idea what that person did to get to the spot they are in.
I focus on this because we are making judgements without the information. Some people work day and night for a decade to get where they are at. They hire the best coaches, technical team, etc etc to help them get there. And that is awesome!! But if you just started and don’t have the funds to access those resources, don’t compare yourself!

2) You have NO idea what happens in the person’s life when the camera is off.
We all project our best online – there is research that supports this. So take a closer look – we are all human! Don’t elevate others unrealistically!

3) You have NO idea that they are delivering what they are promising.
Remember we are constantly being marketed to. There are some people who are REALLY good at marketing! It can be hard based on the surface to see just how good they are at what they are selling.

So – don’t compare yourself! Just get really good at what you are doing!! And if you are jealous it is because you really really WANT something that they have. So write it down and focus on manifesting it! If they have it, it means that it is possible!

By being judgemental instead of inspired about someone who is truly making a difference and succeeding in business, we are wasting valuable time and energy. Like a rollercoaster of highs when we accomplish something in our own business but then seeing that someone else appears to have done something similar before us.

This is a never-ending cycle!

So Be Your Best Self!

In the spirit of this message, I have organized a series of interviews that will happen over the next month with a few female entrepreneurs who are going to share strategies on leading authentically and living according to their life purpose.

With love, enjoy!!

If you are looking for more meaningful engagement with your current and new customers – Follow these 6 steps!

Surprise – The Change Begins with You!

1. ASSESS YOUR ATTITUDE
Often when we aren’t attracting the results we want, we can spend a lot of time complaining and/or criticizing ourselves and others for the things we are frustrated with or don’t like.

We focus on the numbers that we DON’T have and are FRUSTRATED when are numbers aren’t growing as fast as we want.
When we are feeling down, we procrastinate on the important business growing activities because we are spinning with too many things to do which ends up diminishing our confidence.

Answer this: How often do you complain? Are you delaying anything because you are overwhelmed?

2. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
Consider all of the skills and strengths and look for ways to demonstrate your best every day.
Ask yourself these questions:
• What am I bringing to the table here?
• What am I contributing? Do I present solutions?
• What can I do to improve the environment in my business and in my relationships?
• Am I implementing the best time management strategies?
• What do I need to focus on?

3. START TODAY & BE GRATEFUL
Look around and see all of the things that are going right in your business.
Look for the things that you are grateful for and write them all down to remind yourself.
ACTION: Create a Thank You promotion to spread the gratitude with your customers.
Show the people you interact with just how much you appreciate them!

4. CREATE YOUR DREAM LIST
When are you most happy in your work?
What do you want to be doing more of with your time?
Write out a list of ideal duties, projects or partnerships you want to be doing more of – get in touch with what really makes you happy!

5. LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES
Consider delegating tasks or decreasing your offerings.
Maybe it is time to streamline: What opportunities exist for maximizing your time now that you know what lights you up?
Find out what you need in order to get where you want to go!
Talk to people, network, tell them clearly what you do and how you can help them solve their problem!

6. GET INVOLVED & BRIDGE THE GAP
Become the ideal Problem Solver for your customer – Show them that you are happy, self-aware and focused.
* Be the person they need to solve their problem.
* Work from this space as frequently as possible! AND have a life outside of your business!
* Take a course, volunteer and meet new people!
*Find a mentor, a coach, a time management planner that works and surround yourself with supportive people!

AND remember, you started a business because there is something burning inside of you that wants to be shared! Believe in yourself!  Follow these steps to really get out of you head and focused on providing the best service to your customers!

Enjoy the process!

So you jump on webinar after webinar and you sit there ready to click the button to invest in training whether it is Facebook ads, copy writing training, webinar training, Pintrest training etc. etc. etc. but then you think, “Oh my goodness my partner is going to kill me!!!” or maybe it isn’t so dramatic but you don’t want to get into the whole MONEY TALK!

As an entrepreneur you have BIG dreams! You know there is an abundance of passionate energy bubbling inside of you!! But sometimes you can be pulled in different directions and overwhelm can set in.

You may also look around and try to replicate what other people are doing but your heart just isn’t in it. You think, why isn’t this working and begin to compare yourself to others who seem to be successful. All of this behaviour leaves you feeling frustrated and wanting to give up.

NOW IS THE TIME TO FOCUS YOUR ENERGY – You really are closer than you think to living your life purpose!!

Discovering your life purpose and sharing your passion in the world through the work you do every day will attract abundance, prosperity and peace into your life and will ripple into your family and your community!

WHY AN AUTHENTIC BUSINESS?

And when that happens… Your confidence will soar because this approach is rooted in your soul, your heart and you will experience the joy of living your life purpose! Get Started by accepting my gift to you!
