Open, generous and connected

Isn’t that what we seek from a co-worker, boss, friend or even a fellow conference attendee?

Open to new ideas, leaning forward, exploring the edges, impatient with the status quo… In a hurry to make something worth making.

Generous when given the opportunity (or restless to find the opportunity when not). Focused on giving people dignity, respect and the chance to speak up. Aware that the single most effective way to move forward is to help others move forward as well.

and connected. Part of the community, not apart from it. Hooked into the realities and dreams of the tribe. Able and interested in not only cheering people on, but shining a light on how they can accomplish their goals.

Paradoxically, the fancier the conference, the more fabled the people around the table, the less likely you are to find these attributes. These attributes, it turns out, have nothing to do with fame or resources. In fact, fear is the damper on all three. Fear of failure, intimacy and vulnerability. Fear closes us up, causes us to self-focus and to disconnect.

When we find our own foundation and are supported in our work by those around us, we can get back to first principles, to realizing our own dreams and making our own art by supporting others first and always.

Planting, harvesting and your fair share

When there is scarcity, we worry a lot about getting our fair share—what goes to him doesn’t go to me. The harvest becomes fraught with danger and competition.

When we worry more about planting, though, sharing the harvest gets a lot less complex.

Plant enough seeds and the scarcity eases. In fact, if you plant enough, you’ll never have to think twice about the harvesting.

The Power of Kindness "Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." Leo Buscaglia

Everything comes if a man will only wait. I have brought myself by long meditation to the conviction that a human being with a settled purpose must accomplish it, and that nothing can resist a will that will stake even existence for its fulfilment. Benjamin Disraeli

Selling by Seth Godin

PMA Added.. Personally I prefer not to sell but offer..

“Success lies just one inch beyond your perceived limits. Every day you have a choice whether or not to take that inch and transform success from uncertainty to inevitability.” – Akshay Nanavati

 

Selling to people who haven’t bought yet

The portion of the population that haven’t bought from you or your competition yet is not waiting for a better mousetrap.

They’re not busy considering a, b and c and then waiting for d.

No, they’re not in the market. They don’t believe that they have a problem that’s worth the time and money they think it’s going to take to solve it.

As a result, smart marketers don’t market to this audience by saying, "hey, ours is better than theirs!"

If this group thought that they had a solvable problem, the would have solved it already.

No, they won’t respond to a better-than-them pitch. Instead, they’re much more likely to respond to a new statement of their problem and a new statement of the solution. Don’t ask them to announce that they were wrong when they decided that they didn’t need a tablet, a survival kit or an anti-impotence drug. Instead, make it easy for them to make a new decision based on new information.

 

The easiest and the best

The easiest customers to get are almost never the best ones.

If you’re considering word of mouth, stability and lifetime value, it’s almost always true that the easier it is to get someone’s attention, the less it’s worth.

 

If you think that’s what we want, why don’t you give it to us?

The sign in front of the breakfast bar at the hotel says, "from garden to table."

Really? Virtually every item I see has been processed four times, steamed, stored and steamed again.

Marketing pitches are finely tuned to resonate with the audience in mind. Too often, though, the marketer is only in charge of the pitch, and someone else in the organization has to make the thing.

So the marketer brags about how tasty the food on the airplane is, or how reliable the cell phone service is or how magically transporting the aromatherapy of the soap is–and then someone else, someone under different pressures and constraints–has to deliver. And they rarely do.

They rarely do because the paying customer isn’t their customer. Their customer is the quality control department, the accounting department and the "don’t-rock-the-boat" department.

Marketers need to spend less time making promises and more time keeping them.

 

The future of our economy lies with the impatient. The linchpins and the artists and the scientists who will refuse to wait to be hired and will take things into their own hands, building their own value, producing outputs others will gladly pay for. Seth Godin

Successful Networker The different​ & the Advantage

“What I find amazing is that when you go out of your way to give to another person, you will also receive great things in your life. This is what is called the Law of Giving and Receiving. You may not receive from the people you are helping, but  you will receive good things from other people and in other ways.” Sonia Ricotti

jokes pulling each others legsLike all children involved in something as a team or group or even watching TV we look fro the difference, do we not?  The one supposed to be doing his or her own thing. Pretty easy right?
We’ve been trained to spot different. Our attention is attracted to different. We are trained to see it in a blink.

Now the system trains you to spot “different” so that it can be separated out. Remember what happened back in school with the “different” kids? Whether they were “gifted” or “challenged,” the result was the same: they got separated.
Different doesn’t work in the system. “Different” kids come in a lot of flavours and require many unique programs to ensure their compliance. But the system doesn’t have multiple programs, they only have one designed for the average drone.

Part of that program shows the drone how to spot the different. The average brainwashed school kid has no problem spotting the kid who is different. From there, social training kicks in and the different are pushed to the side.
Now if it hasn’t become clear, school isn’t training for life, it is training for compliance. So when you get out in the real world, up is down and down is up.
In the system, different is bad, in the real world, different is an enormous asset.
On a genetic level, our attention is attracted to variation. We find the “different” interesting. I don’t know the scientific reason for that, but variation in a gene pool helps insure survival, so it makes sense.

Owel teacherThis is where you can actually use the system’s training to your advantage.
Because everyone all around you is trained to pay attention to what’s different.
As a service provider, if you act, talk and work in a unique way, you have an enormous advantage. You can’t get clients without first getting the attention of prospects.
Are you showing up in a unique way?
Are you even clear about the unique value you bring to your clients?
Most people are blind to it. They’ve had that ability to see their greatest gifts suppressed. And for good reason. Because once you unlock that ability for yourself, you’ll understand just how valuable you truly are.
It’s far easier to control people if they’re worried about being “arrogant,” or “cocky” or “proud” of who they are. You can actually get people to walk around in a state of constant “guilt.” And people say hell is someplace you go when you die. For many, it’s right here among the living.   Don’t fall for it. Life is too short. And you aren’t here to be a fearful drone.    Helping people to recover this ability and

to see their unique value, is what is expected by you should you be the leader of choice.
This ability will change your business, no matter what type of business!  From a company to a single ownership you still deal with people, customers are like staff really and should be treated with respect.  This I do with members and customers in both my MLM’s   (1)   (2)  as an Independent Distributor and it will transform your life.
You are here to shine as brightly as possible, for as long as possible.
Your clients and the rest of the world need you to show up. When would you like to start?

You Have Something Unique and Valuable That Sets You Apart From Everyone… Now You Can Find Out What That Thing Is and Use It to Build Your Business  The right training is paramount and be that little bit better than the rest!! for my MLM’s I use this Guide  it may not be a tradition business but like nearly all  MLM’s they produce more millionaires worldwide!!

Difference between school and lifeHow to Make Yourself Stand Out Like a Diamond at a Coal Convention?  be better!  The fact is, you already have everything you need right now to set yourself apart from your competition in ways that would drastically improve the quality of your clients and business.    What you probably haven’t done, though, is created the package that communicates that to your prospective clients.

What makes you unique? What makes you a better value than anyone else?

How do you communicate that to prospects so they “get it” like a smack right to the face?  Go that extra mile.

If you don’t have those answers, then it’s high time to do something about it. 

INVEST in yourself it is worth it. Become the LEADER you are capable of!

“Set higher standards for your own performance than anyone around you, and it won’t matter whether you have a tough boss or an easy one. It won’t matter whether the competition is pushing you hard, because you’ll be competing with yourself.” Rick Pitino Basketball Coach, Author and Speaker

Most Service Providers are Great at What They Do–But Very Few Are Good At Communicating the Unique Value of What They Do.  You are the decision of your life and future.

If you want to attract a better job or anything better than what you currently have, it is important to understand how the law of attraction works.  You know that to bring in something better you must imagine what that better thing looks like in your mind, and then live in that picture as though it is here now. But you should also know that if you complain about your current job, for example, and continue to focus on all the negative things, you will never bring the better job to you. You must look for the things to be grateful for in your current job. Each thing you find to be grateful for is helping to bring that better job to you. That is really working the law!  May the joy be with you
