We Often Forget To Be Thankful

 

Gratitude

 

Probably you do not know that I am a therapist for Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have my own studio, but I’m not 100% busy with it. So I in my remaining time I’m working on my online business.

Among my clients in my alternative medicine practice, there is a client sitting in a wheelchair for 17 years. She was very young when a terrific car accident occurred. See has an appointment today that’s why I’m inspired to write about her.

At first it was a challenge for me because I was not used to deal with wheelchair users. There is always the fear that you are acting stupid. Either one is too sensitive or too little empathetic. It is a tightrope walk. But it is more likely to be too empathetic, which is not pleasant for the disabled person. You tend to treat the person like it was a child.

I told her about my insecurity and inexperience and asked her, so to speak, to instruct me and tell me what and when I am doing or saying wrong. If you want to change something you have to know where to start and my client was pleasantly surprised and grateful for my honesty. Each time she’s with me, she tells me how much she looked forward to the appointment and how grateful she is to come to me.

The fear of handling disabled person the wrong way is big. But why is this fear of doing right or wrong? If you treat everyone with respect anyway, you can not do anything wrong in this situation. The only difference is the extra wheelchair. Otherwise it’s people like you and me. I would even say that they are even a step better. Because they were faced with death and now have the awareness of how precious life is and are grateful for it. They are strong people who master their lives despite their difficulties and teach us a great lesson in terms of positivity. Many of them are also top athletes, as a healthy, positive spirit is part of them.

My client is one of the most positive, funniest and most accomplished people I know. She always has a smile and always a nice word for everyone.

Yes, the word gratitude is not so common in our vocabulary. Actually we have everything in the Western and yet we are moaning and yet we are unhappy.

Instead, we should once again learn to take responsibility for our lives and change things that do not suit us. We can do that … it may take some work, the will and perseverance to do something. But …. nothing is impossible.

Not to be forgotten … be thankful. Thankful that we have a job (even if it is not the dream job, this can be changed), thankful that we have a roof over our heads, thankful that we have food and drink, thankful that we are healthy, grateful that we have good friends, thankful that we can enjoy a family, thankful that we were allowed to be parents, ever grateful that I may open my eyes in the morning and make the day full of energy to my liking. Just be thankful!

How To Never Run Out Of Content In Online Marketing

Content is King

 

The biggest problem when you start in the marketing industry is, what the heck am I going to tell to my audience. It makes it even more difficult to know that at the beginning there isn’t any audience. So to whom am I talking to and what am I talking about.

As you may imagine this was exactly my issue when I got started. So I did a lot of listening, watching and reading and while I was doing that I realized that all these was already content.

The very first and most important thing to do is to brand yourself. Even if you work for an MLM, be aware of not to mention it at all. But always remember to brand yourself. You are the company, you are the product, you are the service and you are the boss and leader of your company …. no one else!

The second important task is, that you have to find your niche and target your market. What are your passions: health, animals, mindset, marketing, mlm, woodwork …. whatever. You have to know who is going to be your market, your potential client. Therefore find out who will you go to help, serve and deliver solutions. Most of the time this goes with what your passions are, because there you are the master.

So now you can start putting out value creating content. Now creating content??? What kind of content? Where do I find valuable, interesting content?

Here is where the magic formula comes in INVEST-LEARN-TEACH. Yes because before you get some kind of content you have to invest. Either you invest in products, in tools, in books or in time. Then you learn and apply, after you learned and applied, you can teach and share it.

I learned this tip from one of my mentor and that is to take minimum 30 minutes time on a Sunday and do some research collecting themes and contents for the starting week.

You do it this way:

  1. You can go to Facebook, YouTube, Google or read books, these medias are your best friends.
  2. Your notes you write during events, hangouts, webinars, trainings are precious, never forget as Ray Higdon says “Your notes are uncashed checks”.
  3. Look for experts and Leaders on Facebook: like Ray Higdon, Zig Ziglar, Bob Proctor and many others. Listen to what they have to say, like trainings, wisdom, life philosophy and so on, be inspired and create your content out of that and repurpose it again.
  4. Go through your own Facebook feed, watch out for affirmations and create your own story or learning curve around it.
  5. Go to Google and search for forums, there are millions of forums in so many different niches. Have a look at what questions people have and create content around these questions, delivering solutions.

Remember whatever you’re listen to, watch or read, when repurposing and sharing, always do it in your own words. Make it yours, integrating your character and your style into.

Wish you happy content research!!!

What Do You Do In Your Compound Time

Clock

We have 24h a day.

Do we use them in a valuable way?

I way that pays us back in more productivity, more creativity, better memory, more healthy and overall well-being.
Most of the time humans find excuses for everything. And at the end of the day they find themselves regretting that an other day passed by without them doing something meaningful.
In order to feel better and be proud of yourself, set yourself small goals throughout the day.
I setup 6 tips, which make you feel better and grow your personality and self-belief.

1. Keep a daily journal
Write down meaningful things you accomplish during the day. in the morning: What good will I accomplish today? In the evening: What good did I do today?

2. Naps

A research has proven that a daily nap can dramatically increase creativity, better your memory, and increase productivity.

3. A 15 Minutes walk a day

A daily walk can do wonders for you, it refreshes your mind and body, it increases creativity, it empties your mind, it helps your blood circulation, it calms you down, it reduces stress, your sleep gets better, your cardio improves, and you won’t believe it reduces mortality by 22%.

4. Reading

All great names of the past and of the present days read daily. Reading is accumulating wisdom. You only learn and grow if you read. Doing it daily you never run out of content.

5. Have conversations every day

Have some deep conversations every day. It’s easy when you have to leave your house for work, you obviously encounter people whole day long. It’s a bit more difficult if you have a home business, then you have to force yourself to go out, for instance you make your 15 minutes walk with a friend so you can have conversations. Or you pause what you’re doing and call someone on the phone, just to have a conversation. That expands your mind, you reflect things and share with your conversation partner. Think about that: Conversation is the foundation of creativity, conversation is social!!!

6. Celebrate Your Success

Success is a direct result of how many experiences you make per day. Every experience implement the positive fact that you have tried. Did you fail, or make a mistake? So what!!! You just start over again and don’t give up. Every little experience which ends with a success, you need to celebrate! You can clap your shoulder, you did well and succeeded!

Wish you the clarity to recognize every little success and to value it high!
