Recently, I had the honor of speaking on a good friend of mine’s team call. She’s such a legend in the industry and it was a real honor. So, today I want to share with you my notes from that call.
We can hear things over and over again, and it lands differently because we’re different. So I want to give you three tips on how to be magnetic in your business and in your life. I want you to think about how this applies not just to your business, but to your whole life. Because we’re not supposed to work our tails off and die. We are here to enjoy life, to experience it all – the good, the bad, and everything in between. If all we’re doing is working, we’re missing a huge piece of that.
M for Mindset
The first M is Mindset. Let’s look at the law of attraction for a minute. Everything you’re putting out is getting picked up. When I say that, I don’t mean that you always have to be in a good mood. No, that’s not realistic. What I’m saying is you are responsible for your mood, and for raising your own vibration when you can. Things happen, but you decide how long you’re going to stay there and how much power you’re going to give everything that happens to you. The only person that can change our minds is us. We are 100% responsible for our own thoughts. Once you embrace that, you have the power to start to change your mind and that requires digging into different tools like prayer, meditation, personal growth books, etc.
I want you to think about a strong mindfulness practice, where you have the opportunity to sit quietly regularly throughout the day and notice your thoughts. If you don’t know that your thoughts are not real, you cannot change them. So many people are walking around thinking that whatever they think is true because they thought it and that’s not the case. Our brains are amazing, but they’re also faulty in their wiring, and it’s our job to recognize that and get back to a place where we know we’re in charge, not our thoughts.
A couple of tips and tools I would suggest for this are
- limit your exposure to toxic things. That includes the news, social media, and people on social media and in real life.
- get into the practice of celebrating your wins
There’s a great book I highly recommend, called The Gap and The Gain by Dan Sullivan. We overlook how far we’ve come and only look at what’s always ahead of us, but if you just celebrate your wins, you’re going to be in a better headspace. I also want to give you the emotions chart of the law of attraction. It’s a super useful tool that shows you that you don’t always have to be in a state of joy because that’s not always going to happen, but if you can move yourself up the emotional ladder, you start to raise your vibration and it makes a huge difference.
M for Marketing
The second M is marketing. The most important thing about marketing is your attitude about it. We are all personal brands. On social media, we have amazing opportunities to connect with other people just like us, each day. People who need our help, people to who we will really have an authentic connection to. There are billions of people on social media and feeling like you can really make an impact in someone’s life, that’s the attitude to begin your marketing. It’s really about thinking about your attitude and getting clear on how you can become more consistent on social media.
I am not saying that you need to be on social media every day all the time, but if you can get more disciplined in scheduling content, batching content, get more clear on your niche, and if you can get a little bit more strategic about your marketing, it’s going to make a huge difference.
My Magnetic Marketing Course will be launching in the beta version this summer, so if you want to get a great deal, let me know.
- Staying consistent.
- Be super authentic on social media. Be your best authentic self on social media. One of the biggest mistakes people can make, especially in this time, when there are so many strong opinions about so many topics, is getting upset about something and deciding to go rant on social media. You’re running a business on here and when you decide that you are running a business, you decide that not everything belongs on social media. It’s a shift in mindset. You want to present yourself as who you are right now and where you’re going so people can follow you.
- Look for opportunities to spread positivity, joy, and abundance. There’s way too much of everything else already on social media. People need to be uplifted, and you can do that.
M for Momentum
The third m is momentum. Everything we do has momentum so you can either stay super consistent and build momentum or you can be sporadic and that will create its own momentum in the other direction. I often see entrepreneurs, particularly in the social selling business, who go really hard, and then they burn out. They stop, take a break, and they get out of momentum. Then they need a lot more energy to start again.
My biggest piece of advice is to find a pace that you can stay at. Find a pace you can consistently stay at and then if you want to push that pace a little bit more, come back and do it, but only you can decide what that looks like. That is based on a couple of things:
- your personal goals
- your time
- and what else you’ve got going on in your life
No one can decide that for you. Whatever pace you choose is the right pace for you. Consistency compounds and if you just stay consistent for long enough, it will pay off. So, just try to stick with it, trust that the compound effect works and find a pace that you can work with.
Hopefully, this has sparked some curiosity in you and if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with me.
In the meantime, remember, you are magnetic and people are waiting to hear what you have to say.
