Your View Makes the Outcome True
We have all heard of mind over matter but just this past week I have heard how it affected 3 outcomes:
- Neighbor friendliness meter
- Job environment
- Entrepreneurship success
Jack and Charlene have lived on their street for 11 years but never bothered speaking to their neighbors other than to say hello. Gradually they felt it was an unfriendly area and not worthy of them. They even considered moving. But they noticed a newcomer on another street who “cold called” the neighbors to come on over for a get-together. Jackie also began a very local networking group in her home. As Jackie began to announce how she loves the area, Charlene began to take note. This week Jack and Charlene invited their neighbors over for a party where everyone had a great time. The next day she relayed how wonderful her street is and how she now loves the town!
Last month I met Ryan Penneau who loves helping children succeed. He began Awesome Motivation – a community dedicated to supporting that effort plus a percentage will go to charities of a similar nature. Today his article was concerning those days on a job where we might believe we work for an idiot. The motivation behind it is to remind yourself of why you are really working.
Trust me I had my share of bad jobs, but the motivating force was to help put my children through college. They happily finished and those experiences led me to writing Nice Girls DO Get the Sale: Relationship Building That Gets Results – now an international best-seller!
Most people in business faced difficulty retaining and finding prospects and clients while many job seekers found themselves up against a brick wall. Personally speaking, I decided 2011 is going to be a great year. Once I adapted that mindset, I began to attract much interest in my new projects:
I have begun to teach “How to Use Sales Techniques to Sell Yourself On Interviews” at colleges and universities based upon my new book HIRED! Many folks are specifically asking I keep them apprised of my soon to be announced business retreat. Several associates told me that my positive mindset has turned my marketing communication messages into one of leadership and expertise - thus the reason behind generating the increased interest. In turn, the positive mindset will generate additional sales.
