You can begin increasing your sales just by smiling more and making eye-contact with those around you. When you look someone in the eye and smile, it sends a subconscious message to their brain that YOU are a nice person and likely someone who can be TRUSTED to do business with. People tend to think they are too busy or too import to be bothered by acknowledging those around them, which is a BIG mistake and a HUGE opportunity for you! When you make the time to validate those around you by saying hello, smiling and making eye-contact with them for a second or two, or offering a compliment, their opinion of you skyrockets! When you don’t, it plummets! I remember going to a very important interview to share my professional development programs with a committee. While people were gathering inside the conference room, I was out in the hallway…
Everyone’s busy, and it may feel like there’s “no time” to apply the common advice given for reducing stress. You might think, “Sure, I’d love to sit back and journal or take a long walk in nature and reflect. Yet, I’m buried with To-Do lists, emails and customer demands!” The following five stress-relieving tools meet all three requirements for busy business professionals. They are fast, effective and require very little time. Applying these unique strategies during challenging situations will not only make you feel better, but it will also improve your productivity and performance! #1 – Control Your Breathing. Control Your Life! Under stress, people hold their breath or breathe shallowly through their mouth. Mouth breathing triggers the fight-or-flight response, which leads to muscular tension and an elevated heartbeat. To counteract this, breathe in through your nose to the count of four. Then slowly exhale to the count of eight….
One powerful way to increase YOUR influence is by understanding how to best serve the needs of those around you. In business, you need to identify the problems your customers are wanting to solve. Yet, an even more powerful strategy is to identify the ultimate outcomes your customers are desiring and then help them attain those outcomes! This will put you leaps and bounds ahead of the competition because most only focus on solving the specific complaint the customer shows up with, which means the customer will miss out on a lot of untapped opportunities and you will leave a boatload of money on the table that should be going into your pocket! In order to do this, you must first understand what their actual outcome is, not just what they are asking you for help with. Sometimes people aren’t clear on what they really need. Or they are asking…
For years, we’ve talked about the importance of constant and never-ending self-improvement. Because you live your life in your head, developing greater self-awareness, expanding your perspective, and discovering how to use the power of your mind to create your life by design is crucial if you want to feel happy, fulfilled, and successful. If you’re unsure what I mean by “living life in your head,” it’s relating to the fact that you are not responding to outside events, but rather, to your subjective interpretation of those events. It’s your beliefs that cause you to react or respond, to freak out or remain calm, to get depressed or to become more driven in any given situation. It’s not what happens in life, yet how you interpret what’s happening, that matters more than anything else. If something doesn’t go the way you want it to, you can learn from it and become…
A friend recently emailed me and asked what I’ve been doing that’s different since I seemed to be so much busier and happier. As I typed out a response, I thought what I’m doing might help YOU as well. My reply is below… Over the last few months, I’ve been working hard on clarifying what I want to do with my time, rather than being a slave to my schedule. Through this, I’ve realized the following: To feel fulfilled at work or home, you need to… 1) Spend MOST of your time doing what you love.2) Develop a mission or purpose in life that includes bringing more VALUE into the lives of those around you. I was not doing so well on the first item (doing what you love) because I believed the stuff “I had to get done” was taking up ALL my time. Life seems busier than ever and it…
How do you handle setbacks? Do you get angry? Scared? More determined? How you think about setbacks (things that don’t go the way you want them to) reveals a lot about your attitude. There isn’t one successful person who hasn’t had setbacks. They are a part of life. Sometimes, no matter what you do or how well you perform, things will just not go your way. I used to get really upset about deals falling through, clients not showing up, or another home appliance going on the fritz. Yet, the more I worked on myself, the more unattached I got to outcomes. All you can do is deliver your best effort. That’s it. If it doesn’t work out, try again. The secret to quickly overcoming setbacks is to focus on the value you are bringing and not on the outcome you get back! For example, if you are working with…
