Take a Look at What Role Disappointment Plays in Your Business

A while back I gave a speech to a group of women entrepreneurs, my ideal clients. At the end of my speech, I invited the ladies to attend my upcoming event at a deep discount. Only one person in an audience of 60 women signed up for the event. When I went home, I was disappointed. Then I made some follow-up calls and within five days, seven ladies had taken me up on my offer. That was the day I decided to never again be disappointed by the immediate results I see in business. When you are not happy with your results or feel you are not meeting the expectations you put on yourself, if you are like most people, you are likely to be less productive, unfocused and not in action.

Create a Dynamic Network

You’ve heard the term “self-made,” right? While I understand the spirit of this description, in my experience I don’t believe any successful person is 100 percent self-made.

Successful people surround themselves with other successful people, and they lean on their networks when they need support, investment or just another set of eyes and ears. Professional athletes train with other professional athletes. Top entrepreneurs join networks and invest in masterminds so they can share ideas with people on a similar path. Wealthy people tend to invest in retreats to network with other wealthy people.

Rewrite the Stories in Your Head and Love Life

As a psychologist, I have heard just about everything from I want to die, I want to kill someone, to My life is wonderful and I still don’t know what’s keeping me stuck from the life I know I deserve. HELP!

In a nutshell, if you’re not loving life, it’s your story. Psychologists listen to stories to transform lives. The story is the key to taking your power back. It is the “conscious creator” who manifests the story you want to live your life into. What are you telling yourself? Are you willing to be wrong about your story to have your wildest dreams come true? Would you rather be right or would you rather be rich, madly in love, living in bliss, ____________?

It really is that simple.

Cultivate Your Community, Catapult Your Impact

“Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.”

Community is all about relationships. In a successful community, there is something that transcends the training. It is the people who share the journey together in meaningful ways.

Connection to Your Community Matters! 

When I think of cultivating community, I think of the many important communities with whom I share my love, expertise and attention.

First, there is my personal community with my family and friends who mean the world to me. Second, there is my work community with leaders and co-workers who come together around a common vision and who enhance my life greatly. Then, there is my community of clients and customers that my team and I serve and honor. In addition, there are my neighbors, fellow business owners and community leaders with whom I have caring relationships. And don’t overlook another community: our online community. Social media has expanded our reach into the world more than I ever imagined.

Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life

As we go through each day we make more choices than we can count. Some are conscious, like what will I wear today? and some are unconscious as we grab milk or cream to add to our coffee. Sometimes making choices can frustrate us, overwhelm us or even freeze us in our path.

The next time you notice that choices are challenging you take a moment, take a deep breathe and shift your perspective. Look at choices from the mindset that you have the freedom to make choices for your life. You can decide to go to the gym or not. You can choose to walk or drive, you can select going to bed early versus staying up late.

How Do You Become an Influential Leader?

During my career as an employee of a large corporation, we discussed attaining influence without authority. Traditionally, influence and authority came with title, power and “ruling with an iron fist.” Today, influence is recognized as an important quality of any leader. It doesn’t mean force.

How does leadership and influence factor into a small business? Building influence can be a key to attracting customers, employees and business partners. Attracting the right people to your business can result in more profit.
