successDo you feel like you talk yourself out of success?

As soon as you start to get those great ideas to set goals for yourself, do you suddenly have nagging thoughts about how you aren’t up to the task or how you simply aren’t qualified to carry it through?

If you’ve ever experienced either situation, you can change the way you respond to your inner dialogue.

  • Instead of obeying your negative commands, you can use positive self-talk to counter the negativity and overcome nearly all of you apprehensive thinking.

You Can Set Goals and Stick to Them with Positive Self-Talk

  • Do you get a bit excited when you first set a goal for yourself?

Then self-doubt stops you in your tracks before you even get started?

It can be difficult to try to get going with your business, when you are constantly talking yourself out of taking a step in the right direction.

I know how frustrating and discouraging it can be to have these thoughts constantly pestering you. Many of us, in fact, don’t even realize we have them!

All we know is that we don’t have the confidence to stick to our plans and reach our goals.

But there is another way!

Positive self-talk is an effective way to set goals and ensure that you stick to them, even if you have never been able to do this before.

  • The way this works is that you decide what goal is important to you, and then you put together a strategy of how you are going to attain this goal.
  • When self-doubt starts kicking in, you respond with affirmation that prove your success without surrendering to the negative pressure. Since you’re reading this article, it’s clear that you’re no quitter and you’re certainly not a failure, so start believing in yourself!

Your business vision is achieved through your goals. Read more

Blog TipsI really like to write – but sometimes blogging can be tough and the more I blog, it feels like I’ve just run out of ideas for my newest blog post – or article for that matter.

When you write for your blog, your goal is to get your ideal customer’s attention,  creating engagement.

You have the technology, the business skills, now share what you know. And, if you don’t have the knowledge, get it and share it with your ideal customers.

Take a look at some of these blogging tips – print this out and post it near your computer to give yourself some blogging advice!

1. Read Within Your Niche
Subscribe to blogs and websites within your niche. Search for articles that others have written – not to copy, but to inspire.

2. Re-purpose Your Writing
Use your old articles that you submitted and update them for your blog post. And, know that if your article was say 500 words – you may expand that and have 2 blog posts. The blog posts industry accepted standard is 250-600 words. Mine usually run between 300-500 words. Read more

Have you ever wondered how others ‘get’ their successes, I mean really understand how to get it, and how does that support you?

Cultural differences aside; what I’m talking about here is the concept of your success in the terms of professional accomplishment.

Success seems to be largely gauged in terms of the pursuit of knowledge, and money.

The idea of success is also in terms of our desires to get exactly what we want.

But, are we aiming at our desires, with old concepts? So, when you consider concepts that are new to you – or that you haven’t tried – you will probably hit roadblocks and stumble (fear can put a halt to successes) – but you can and will find the solutions.

Understand this important lesson, here: Read more
