Goal Setting – How to Get The Right Kind Of Focus To Achieve Your Goals In 2015

We are now On the SECOND week of the YEAR, and most of us have done some work  on what we want this year, some goal setting work, or at the very least a LIST of things  we want to achieve for 2015.

And  a Lot of Us… Are still wondering what it is that we want to accomplish, What it is we want to achieve, What is it we really want…
Meaning We are really taking our time to make sure that our Year finishes better then the Year before…

I am one of those people that is taking their time, to get really clear on what I need to accomplish this Year…

I’m taking my time to make sure that what I focus on this year, it’s what I need to focus on , and that my time and my focused energy goes in to what is important and fulfilling…

The year 2014 was a very challenging one in terms of my Goals…

Even though I got a lot accomplished, even though A Lot Got Done, and there was a lot of good reward…

I still felt  like it wasn’t enough, it wasn’t what I was looking for…

Or what subconsciously I was looking for…

It felt dry, It felt that a lot of the focus went in to the wrong things…

Creating a feeling of un-fulfillment and void…

Now looking back, I now Know that it was because I did not have a real plan for the goals I wanted to accomplished for the year…

I began the year with a wish list, and Unclear expectations on my goals.

I made the mistake of following the cheap advise we get every January…

Set your New Year Resolutions….

However, this time around I want to make sure I know What I Want and I know What I will get by Achieving my Goals…

Reasons, Feelings, and all…

Here is my Goal Setting List for the 2015

 Mindset:

This is going to be one of my most important ones that I will have to focus on constantly…

looking back on my 2014 goals this was week…

I allowed myself be persuaded by problems, and by the negative consciousness of my surroundings…

Going through some personal development programs, old programs that I had listened to before, I made this distinction yet again ” We Really Are Who We Think about all the time” so if our mind is focus on problems then that’s what will feel, That’s what will become a person who is constantly in trouble and stressed.

So it is very important I keep myself away from thinking to much on thing that appear to be urgent and important and develop Technics to bounce back in the flow of things…

So mindset is very important…

Not Only it will give you a better outlook on life but also will allow you to access positive resources, that will help you in overcoming challenges….

so pretty cool goal to have, To overcome Programming that Does NOT Serve ME…

Here’s a List of areas I want to Improve So I have the best mindset to Making my 2015 My BEST….

  • Negative un-resourcefull beliefs: I have a habit of not knowing what to do all of the time and sometimes this thought would zap out most of my creative energy that can be use for useful things like making progress on my goals.  So learning to get rid of them or become aware before they sabotage my confident, is key to move forward.
  • Achieve Happiness: This can be a difficult one, because is a very allusive emotion but but to clarify what I mean is that I want to be at least 80% of everyday, in a state of kindness towards others and make someone else day better…
    so I get the feeling of achieving kindness in my work day…
    Be aware of negative emotions like anger, frustration and worry and focus immediately on my happiness outcome.
  • Relax: I want to have some time not necessary a lot but some to relax, reflect, and see how I’m doing on my goals as make progress or not, and change direction if needed.
  • Read a Book: I want to read one book a month that is my goal, but some of the books I’m looking to read are pretty big, over seven hundred pages some of them… but I will get them done. It’s important I do that to keep growing and to keep learning.
  • Listen to Motivational Audios every day.
  • Breath or Take a nap when Possible I guess this one kind falls on the Relaxation goal, but is important to keep up a healthy mind if I want to achieve the success I’m looking to accomplish in 2015

Like I said, This is the most important area to keep Sharp and healthy.

Financial:

I have a few business That I’m working on, and in the past working on all of them at the same time has cause stress and unclear focus and minimal success in all of them.

This time around, I feel I got a good plan to make everyone of them work, by dividing the time I give to them, and keep the priorities in check.

I will Grow My Cleaning Business, we do Office Cleaning In Vancouver, So the  First think I need to do is to bring the business To the level where it can run by itself, with a great team, great Employees, awesome management…
Having a great team will help me not only on my Cleaning Business, but will help me achieve my goals on my other business as well.

So Focusing on building a great team that will help me no only run my cleaning business but also my other business is definitely a MUST.

Secondly I will build and increase revenue by at least or no less the $1000 a day at the Laundromat…
If the right team is in place and we have achieved success on my cleaning business then focusing on the laundromat will be the next big goal I must focus on.

Thirdly The Restaurant… right now my my restaurant is doing really well, however I feel that I could do much better if I configure it to work differently a

I want to convert it in to a take out only restaurant, the place is to small for it to be run as restaurant…

The way it is set up right now will not work long-term…

As a Take out place I would be able to serve more people faster and there will be enough space for those who want to stay and eat in.

Forth…. The RIA MONEY SENDING Service, this is an extra service we provide at the Laundromat, and its pretty straight forward people come in send money to love ones abroad…

However a lot of my current customer are Hispanics…

What I want to do is build it to where people Hispanic or Not can come to my store,  chose my store to do their money transfer…

my tentative plan right now is to build a website which I will Rank on the Search Engines So when People are Looking for a place to send money from They’ll see my store first before anybody else…

I will be their first choice…

These are Just some of the Things I want to focus on This Year….

All of my other goals kind of merge with these TWO areas…

For example:
I want to travel more this year… Well if my Finances aren’t there is not going to happen. If my Business are not running well… Is not going to happen.

I’d Love to attend a Tony Robbins event, but if my time isn’t there because my time is being used somewhere else then it will not happen Right…

That’s Why that is Critical I keep a Healthy and Sharp mindset as I go through my 2015.

How Will I make my Goal Setting More effective and Focused on 2015…

Basically by monitoring my thoughts and Visualizing…

And Not get caught up on the challenges of the moment…

If I feel that I’m caught up on problems…. I got to Stop myself and visualize  myself at the end of the year…

(I found this hack by accident… and it seems to really work…)

When I look at myself in the future I DON’T see myself having a problem there are no problems in my future…

I see myself as successful and I see myself As Someone Who has Realized His Goals for the Year…

I see myself as the happy and fulfilled person I am and more.

One more thing I have done as well to help myself visualize and use this Hack…
I bought myself a wall calender of the whole year, so when a problem rises…

I look at the calender I look at the day when the problem is happening…  And then I go to the last day of the month and of the Year and ask myself where is the problem now…best goal setting

Doing this gets me a much better state and I Trouble shoot the problem better…

You should Try it…

 

So this is one of the Hacks I will use throughout the year…

and as I study more I will implement more that serve me and my purpose and share them here…

I realize that this Goal Setting Thing is really an art and is not just writing new year resolutions but learning more about who you are and Grow…

So Thanks For Reading…

“How to make 2015 Your Best Year By Going Beyond Your WHY”

Have you ever heard people say something like this:..

Focus on your Why, Or

What is your WHY…

And I have to admit I have said it myself when trying to help
people,to Focus on Their goals…

But I didn’t understand completely how this whole thing worked…

I didn’t really understand how it worked in the context of a goal setting exercise…

But this is why it was so confusing…

it’s because we tend to use it so much (like I Did) that we dilute the power the concept Has…

or we use it thinking that the other person understands what they are being told or asked…

we use it so much the its true purpose gets loss in the communication…

And As you know New Year Resolutions is Just around the
corner, and you are going to hear people get ready to set their goals for the YEAR…

as a Result you’ll hear “what’s Your Why”  a lot….

The Answers obviously will very from…

My family…

Money….

Time…

Freedom…

etc…

But I have studied this a lot…

and I have Found that if your goals are to be focus…

a better question to ask someone instead of the ‘WHY’ is
What do they really want…

What will this give them…

How will having the money the freedom, make them feel…

And Not worry about being to specific at the beginning, because what You
REALLY want is to find out the feelings you are going to get when
Accomplishing your goals….

When asked about your why…
is very easy To loose context…

Because the word WHY its-self is VAGUE…

And if you are like me your head will get block, get Chocked by the question and go hide somewhere…

I will go into overdrive by thinking all of the reason that are and CAN BE and the reasons of why not as well etc…

and I’m sure there are a lot of reasons or why’s that we carry around with us that
DON’T REALLY SERVE US anymore… and reasons you just haven’t figured out yet…

But When writing what you want, we tend to write freely of all of the things we truly want and why we want them at the same time…as well the real reasons behind that Want, That Desire, That Goal…

Here’s an example….

If you are thinking your to FAT…

And want to loose weight…
If you really think about it…

what you really want is to look cute, pretty, healthy, beautiful, you just want to look good…

Whatever that feeling is…

That’s what you are after…

You want to feel good…

You don’t want to be the subject of all of the Fat jokes…

you want to feel respected…

you want to feel as part of the group…

(this might sound harsh, but inside that is what we really feel…Embarrassed)

You want to feel proud…

you want to feel awesome, you want to feel healthy, you want to feel like someone
to be looked up as a role model…
and on and on…

So you see the Real Goal…

The End Goal in losing weight is the Feeling you’ll get from looking good…

So…

By Nurturing those feeling, getting clear, relive them on a daily basis, write them on your journal, blog, or Facebook post, because these are the feeling that will drive you to achieve your Goal.

 

That’s what I’m going to do this Year, That’s what will get me get my goals for 2014…

So let’s get to it…

What do you Want???

Happy New Year…

Network Marketing Education- The Door To Your Entrepreneurship Journey

With NETWORK MARKETING…

In Essence your JOB is that of a Sales man or woman…

I’ve said this before…

it’s sad.

Now, not that there is anything wrong with having sales experience or being a sales man or woman, but the lure of the network marketing profession is freedom, enjoying a comfortable life, time with family, having your own business, being your own boss, etc. etc…

However that is not the case….

It doesn’t matter what kind of mlm you get into you will need to work hard, at developing relationships, new relationships with people who have probably already been approached by some other network marketer…

Huge competition.

Network marketing is tough and if this is your first-time getting involved with it you’ll soon find this out…

its so tough that if you read the stats on the industry or that of any company in the industry the success rate is 1 to 5 percent…

1-5% that is tough…

And here you come a new person to the industry with no experience what so ever, only a dream that you will make it big, with you mind filled with a lot of positive talk, cause that is what you get a lot of in these circles of people…

A month goes by, two, three, six, and you are seeing Zero  or very little returns on your hard work, working even harder thinking that would be the solutions to the problem…

BUT THE REAL PROBLEM WAS….

You did not know what you were getting into, you did not know what the whole picture was, you were lied to by your own emotions, and your own positive talk…

So, what do you do Now… Do You Quit… Do You Say F@#$k This industry, Do You tell people MLM is a Scam… what do you do…?

What you know now is this….

YOU Got An Education You Probably Learned some skills You can use now, you got an education on how the network marketing industry works….

and now you can start charting the path you want to go forth in…

IT took 4 years For me to see this and a lot of money wasted…

I count it as education…

What I learned there NOW I use in my other businesses, and Now Promote Local Business in my area to prospective customers, but I could not have acomplished that if it wasn’t from the education I got and the positive environment from being involved in network marketing…

PEOPLE DO MAKE MONEY IN MLM…

But these are people who have been involve in the industry for very long…

have gone through the struggles and Now know how to motivate people to join them…

if you listen to their pitch and study it you’ll see that…

It’s all about making money, it’s all about how they were poor and now they are rich…

it’s all about the freedom they have… It’s all about them…

even people in their testimonials are people who have been involve in their industry for a long time…

don’t be fooled in thinking these are just regular joes like you and me… They are not…

There is very little about them helping a regular joe to climb the latter of success of the network marketing arena…

Why…?

Because is very difficult to do so…

As regular JOEs we only provide the funding, basically, for the more advance people in the industry, we only provide for their paychecks….

Again I want to reiterate this…

It is your education, it is a door for you to go through in to the entrepreneurship journey, without having to spend 50,000 dollars from the start with no guaranteed of success…

Hope this helps….

Why Does Depression Is Rampant IN Our Society, Why Are People So Unhappy…

Saddens me To think how so many people that Can make us Laugh through their art work, Are so Sad Inside…

looking for information on how to best write this post, I found a very old quote…

Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter. – Friedrich Nietzsche”

And it sounds so true…

That if we really look at who we are as human beings and really look at our existence, we are so meaningless, cosmic dust…

It was in this insignificant nothingness that God decided to express his greatness…

Because even if we think of ourselves as nothing we can experience so much joy and happiness and awareness of life…

I believe in God, and I believe that there is purpose for everyone here, I believe that purpose is what gives this, short existence, meaning.

So,

It saddens me to heard of people who have the power to bring so much joy to others suffer from such conditions as depression and anxiety…

Inside they are sad souls…

Today we lost a great actor and comic Robins Williams, one of my very favorites…

I’ve always admired his work, “Jumanji” “Good Will Hunting” “Mrs Doubtfire”…

I think I’ve watched everything that he was in…

I loved his craft, his jokes, and the man’s work overall…

there are no details or specifics as to how he die…

all we know is that he has committed suicide and that he had been suffering from severe depression…

A Lot of Comedians suffer from this condition…

Some Say that Smart and Depression go hand and hand.  I don’t know I would agree with that…

But That’s what Gets you… right…

When you hear the news that someone, you admire and that you consider that has it all, compared to everyone else decides to take their own life…

so,

Why could this be that comedians would suffer from depression…?

Stephen Fry suffered from depression…

Jim Carey suffered from depression…

Dave Letterman confesses that he takes a mild anti-depressant  

is it because they can only find happiness making other people laugh, but can not find happiness when alone….

or is it something that affects everybody because of the kind of world we live in…

I remember when I was Younger and was so depressed that I was almost killed by a car…

I was so sad, that my life had no meaning, I had no purpose, no social life,

I had been clean from drugs for five years, but felt so alone and destitute….

I wanted my life to have meaning, I wanted to be better, I wanted to be a different person,

I asked myself questions like:

What is this all for…

I am going to die a nobody…

I am alone…

I never really thought about killing myself because my religious beliefs…

But I wanted the second coming to happen right there and then…

I wanted the rapture to happen so all my sorrows be taken away…

(I’m of christian beliefs and this is what a christian beliefs, the second coming and the rapture)

But in a way…

I was thinking of a way out…

A way to stop the suffering.

I think That Faith and Educating Myself On What was Happening Saved Me…

Now I choose to focus on what I can do…

On what Is on my control…

I choose to focus on the positive things life has to offer…

There is enough negativity in the world already…

Now what we must do is enjoy the short life we have on this planet and create a legacy…

live a life worth remembering…

Step-1 To Killing Your 9-5 The Corner Stone of Your Foundation

You Start with your why…

One of the reason that I love working from home is because I want my freedom…

when I work from home, no one tells me what to do, no one is on my case about what I got to do and have done…

No one tells where I got to go or when I get to eat, or how many hours I got to work…

I work because I love what I do and I enjoy what I do very much…

I only answer to myself, and what I have set as schedule, so I can focus on the activities that bring me the income I need…

That is the why that got me started, and that is why that is keeping me going as well…

So, What is your why?

You got to start there…

now the real obvious one is, well, obvious right, is money…

you want to make some money because of your family, because of your work, because of your debts…

money is the real one…

And Ultimately that is what we want to get a lot of…

this is probably you decided to get involved in the making money online niche…

But if you look at it objectively it goes deeper then just having money…

I already mentioned some of the behind the scene why’s or reasons of why money is important…

1. mom and dad

2. family

2. freedom from the bondage of working for somebody else…

Right…?

it goes deeper, and is important that we focus on the behind the scene reasons more then just the money…

Your family and freedom are more powerful reasons to motivate you and push you to get what you want…

I ask you again… Do you Know Your Reasons?

For me at the beginning, when it was just me….

All I wanted to do was to own my business so I didn’t have to answer to anyone.

All of my life since I was twelve years old I was working for some one else and being told what to do what to think how to do things…

And one time It just clicked in me, that I had been working for most of my life and

what did I had to show for…?  Nothing…

It dawn on my that the dude who owns the system is the one calling all the shots…

I started reading books on how to run your own business, investing, I started listening to the infomercials on late televisions about real state “No Down Payments”

It wasn’t until I read “CashFlow Quadrant” that things started to make sense to me on how owning a business really work, and what it took to achieve it…

(more about that in future articles)

The point here is…

The dislike I had for my job was so strong that help me Go through the maze of info BS until things started to click…

Being Clear With Your why…

It Will help you to keep going when it gets tough…

It will keep you focus…

It will also remind you of what your vision is…

It will remind you as well of the pain, You are going through Now, and why You must Change…

This is why this is very important…

I am also aware that this topic has been over emphasize over and over…

It don’t matter what opportunity you join the topic of having a strong reason is the first one that comes up…

and it is for good reason too…

it is a corner stone of your long term success…

Here some basic questions to ask yourself
get a functional why for now…

You Want a Business… Why Do You want a Business?

What will it give you?

What will it help yo achieve?

If some of the answers come back as it will give me more time with family, Ask:

why is that important to you?

There is no rule of thumb that says get 4-5 reasons why….

Go as deep as you can…

tell yourself a story of what will happen if your why’s are met…

fill it up lots of picture words describing the places and feelings you will get

when reaching your goals, let that resourceful state drive you to get clear on what your reason for starting a Business for yourself.

Cheers

“Expectations Is The Root Of All Heartaches”

How do you keep going when all seem to be going to shsss… ?

I know that this is what happens a lot in peoples minds…

every time someones says something  about how hard it is or how hard it has been, I know that they are working hard…

they are giving them all they got, the only problem was that the expectations they came in with were not met…

and now they are realizing how difficult it could be…

I got a friend that emailed me the other day and wanted to know, my opinion on some bizops opportunities, including my own www.7figureMasters.com

so Which one did I recommend…

if I was like all of the other marketers out there I would have recommend my own opportunity, Right…

But I know my friend, and I know that he is just learning this stuff as well…

and I know his expectations are not realistic…

I answer all of his questions honestly and said also what is my mantra “it will take dedication and a strong mindset”…

It’s the truth, It does not matter what opportunity you go into it takes time and a sound strategy that works for what you want to achieve…

What are your expectations…

You got to remember working online is not like having a job…

is not like going to work for someone else where you put in your time and in return you get money, you get paid…

Nothing like that…

In fact if that is the kind of expectations you have, you are in for a rude awakening…

And You’ll be soon complaining and discouraged and soon quitting…

The Internet is a Great Opportunity

The opportunity that working online brings is awesome, and I could not be more thankful for it…

many years ago none of this could of been possible, but now anybody who is able to focus  and understand what it takes…

You hear stories, of high school drop outs, homeless people, stay at home moms, people from all walks of life….

it is possible for you and me and anyone who is willing…

Be realistic with your expectations…

Be realistic about the working you’ll be embarking on…

Be optimistic every step of the way…

And Succeed at all costs…

Cheers…

He Keeps Asking The Same Question Over and Over Again, and the Answer Still The SAME

I keep getting the same Question over and over…

yesterday I wrote about one of my subscriber that was frustrated because the results he was having in his business…

and I went on to say that it takes Long-term planning and long-term focus, dedication, and the development of certain skills….

But this questions keeps coming up over and over…

When will I see Results?

This kind of mentality seems to plague every new person that enters this business…

and I can understand why someone thinks this way, but a better question would be…

“What skill did you bring to the table you thought would give you immediate results?”

And If the answer is none…

Then that should answer your the “When will I see Results” question.

if you are not getting results…

Go back to what your doing and study it, as if it was a crime scene….

Look for clues, evidence, look for clues and learn from it and make it better…

It may take months, but you’ll get it…

You will see Areas That Need Improvement…

I’m not a good video guy, but I have been pushing myself to learn video, to learn presenting on video and give tips…

(I believe video is one of the skills that us in this industry need to be good at)

If you ever bought something online it was probably because you saw a video of the person who created the product, or you saw a review video of the product that convinced you to buy it…

Well that goes to show how powerful video is….

So, I don’t know how to do videos well, but as I do them on a daily basis, I am learning things I got to improve…

For example,
I got to learn how to pronounce my words better, because my accents make my words sound funny on video and is distracting to the viewer…

I also got to make sure that all of my videos have the right tone and voice tempo, I done videos where my voice is low, and the video just feels boring…

I also got to work with better lighting…

Do two three takes, so to practice the content before the finishing products… etc…

The point here is that I know what I got to do… I know that I need to improve in all of these areas…

I am noticing what is working in some videos and what is not working in some of the videos…

I get it…

and I know that there are distinctions myself in the subconscious level gets, that I can not explain yet, but I know they are there…

I know that In a few months, I would be much better at doing videos…

Go watch some of the here: TV.MLMondemand.com, and then comeback later and compare…

That’s How You Develop a Skill

Through study and repetition, noticing what is working and what’s not and always improving…

In the www.7FigureMasters.com we try our best to shorten the learning curve as much as possible through the training and interaction in the Facebook Group…

Vincent is always very active and always answering questions…

The support you need is there, you just got to put in the work, bring in the right attitude and the commitment to polish your skills until successful

Is through the development of a specialize skill that you’ll attract people hungry to join you in your endeavors…

So let keep pushing…

Cheers

He’s Looking For a SMASH and GRAB kind of Deal, and NOT For a Long-term Sustainable Business…

This is what the dude Tells me…

I Can’t Figure it out…

I mean It’s insane and I sometimes just hate it…

I hate it hate it I can’t figure it out…

I follow instruction instructions to the best of my ability and nothing happens.

He’s complaining For the lack of results He sees in his business…

He is following all of the instructions, he is putting  in the work that he needs to do, and doing all of the right things…

But this is what he is doing wrong, I could tell right away, his not focus on the long-term…

His short term focus is making miss the point of all of the work that he’s putting in…

Desperation sets in, and this is basically what makes people throw the towel.

It Takes Long-Term Focus…

Yep…

It does…

Some people get the wrong impression that working online is going to be easy, that it only takes working for a couple of hours

And Boom You’ll be rich next day…

they have the wrong idea that your going to make so much money that you’ll retire in your twenties…

Really? Right.

Now, Sometimes this happens…

You Know, A guy like Vick Strizeus comes around joins a business opportunity like empower and makes a million a dollars in one month

and people get the wrong Idea that it’s easy…

They think is that easy…

Well, It’s Not.

It Takes Understanding of your Craft…

And that comes with time and practicing the fundamentals day in and day out…

and sometimes you’ll do over and over again and you won’t know what point is…

but it is a process one must keep up to get to the mastery level…

I heard a story one time…

That Tibetan Monks, not sure if they still do this or not but, they use to poke a piece of wood about 1000 times everyday with the tips of their fingers…

“Ouch” that’s what I got to say…

They would do everyday without missing a day, to the point that they make a dent in the wood…

When that happened, they’d start all over again in another area of the wood, and they would do this continuously until they got really good…

When they Got good at making dents in wood they would start the same process again but now in a sheet of rock…

(Crazy Right?)

Is the Repetition of the fundamentals that gives you understanding of Your craft…

Long-Term Dedication

You see Vick was no newbie, he wasn’t just starting…

I know that some of the marketing he did for his Big Idea mastermind, Made it sound like it was easy, well it was easy for him only…

You see, the dude was already a six figure earner doing his own stuff, He sold products like the High Traffic academy, for a couple of thousands of dollars… (a great product by the way, I own it, Check it out)

when he went in to empower network he wasn’t just hoping that he was going to make some money…

He thought long term, he waited about a year, he position himself strategically in the compensation plan, and knowing he had a list of buyers, that trusted him and would want to get involve as founding members in his new project…

people bought without hesitation…

Again the dude was no dummy, he knew his craft and he knew was he was doing…

It Takes Skill

My friend, the one who was expressing his frustrations, will probably quit…

Why?

He is looking at a smash and grab kind of deal, and not a long term sustainable business…

I could hear it in his voice…

He sounded like his giving up already…

He is not willing to keep doing the fundamentals and therefore not learn the patience it takes, forfeiting the skills that will not only would give him success on what he is doing now…

But the skill to replicate success in any other business he goes into…

So, Don’t be like this guy…

Stay the course, keep doing what you need to be doing…

notice what is working and what is not…

and change your approach…

And Soon you’ll be like the Monks making dents in Rocks…

Cheers!

Focus On your Strengths Not in your Weakness, If YOU Focus On What You Know Your Confidence Will Grow!

One of the problems that us introverted people got to deal with is, People haha…

I know that’s kind of a funny statement…

But is true…

This is why a lot of us internet marketers love this is industry…

First…

Most of the sales happen automatically, through a system where people in the comfort of their own homes all by themselves make a decision “To Buy or Not to Buy”.

I mean there is interaction with other human beings ,and being introvert does not mean some is shy or anti-social…

what it means is that we recharge differently we have to have time for ourselves, with one or two people at the most…

If a choice came up between going to a party or stay home…

we probably stay home…

and write an article on my blog, or email to my list, because that gives me joy…

Don’t get me wrong I like to party as much as anybody else, but I do it when proper to me, perhaps even plan ahead before going out…

It would never be spontaneous, If it were, it probably be because it was planned too… LOL

Secondly…

I think it makes me a better person, I get to learn stuff, I like, stuff that I consider important…

Am I saying that Non-introverts don’t…

I’m not saying that at all…

Extroverts, recharge by being with other people, they love the attention of others, etc..

and in our society this kind of personality tends to be widely excepted…

if you are introvert or extrovert has nothing to do with you being social or not.

I consider myself a social introvert, and I know people who are anti-social extroverts…

this is just the reality that we live in…

There is a really good talk you should watch is called the power of introverts

If someone’s told you that you are shy or ant-social or introvert you got to see this talk…

Susan Cain is awesome in this talk.

What does this has to do with business

Well, You got to know what your strengths are, and focus on working with them…

Because it will show in your content, in the way you communicate, and they way you show up.

I sometimes don’t feel like working on what is not my strength and when I do I think people can tell that I was not there 100%, I wasn’t present.

One of the other resources I recommend to people wanting to know where they in the personality spectrum is, http://www.16personalities.com/

Someone brought it up in a mastermind I’m in, really cool free resource.

 

Now What…

once you know your strengths and you know how you are everything will feel in place, your work will be more congruent with who you are and what you can do.

YOU want to add to the conversation?
