Three Steps to Become Enthusiastically Focused


So, let’s assume that you’ve determined what you want, and why you want it.  You have also established that you have all the practical and mental resources you need to execute the required tasks towards achieving your goal. However for some reason, you can’t focus. You are not inspired to take action. And you keep wondering what could be wrong. In this article I share three tips to help you become enthusiastically focused.

Well, you are not abnormal. For the most part, lack of focus is all based on fear: the fear to fail…the fear of being disappointed especially if you’ve embarked on projects in the past that haven’t succeeded. So what do you do? Here we go!

  1. Go back to the drawing board and establish why you want to achieve that goal. What will you emotionally or financially benefit if you achieved your goal? What will your rewards be? Be as specific as possible. Write it down. Read your reasons, and re-write them if that’s what it will take to be clear. Don’t rush. Take your time.

WhatsYourWhy

2. Establish what you will lose if you don’t take action. Will you lose freedom, friends or status? You know the answers. Write these answers down. The idea is to be honest with yourself.

 What will you lose - crosing the ocean

3. Determine the first step you will take towards achieving your goal. Make this step simple and easy. The simpler it is, the better it will be for you to embark on it. For instance, if your goal is to write a book, set a goal as simple as writing half a page a day, or writing for 10 minutes. Make the first step fun and easy. Do not overwhelm yourself.

First step 2

If you follow the above steps, you will get very clear about why you want to achieve that goal, and then get focused to taking action. If you write everything in a “contemplation note-book” (get one if you don’t already), focus, won’t be a problem. The idea is to remove any stress or fear that you’ve attached to your goal.

Last but not least; I once heard this saying: “God will give you food but he won’t cook it for you.” If you want something, you have to do something about it. You have to focus on it. There are no shortcuts. There is no magic. Nothing happens if nothing moves.

If you need more help with getting clear on your goals, or letting go of negative emotions that no longer serve you, I have a resource for you. Check out www.tapthegood.com/contacts/ fill in your details, and I will schedule you for a complimentary 15 minutes’ counseling and/or success coaching session.

3 Out-of-the box techniques to Get New Customers.


A business without customers is like a house without habitants. Regardless of how great or special your product or service is, if you don’t have people demanding it, it’s more or less valueless–unless of course you created it as a hobby. When our products or services are demanded, it implies that we are fulfilling people’s needs or wants. It makes our businesses alive, and our minds enthused with purposefulness. It is simple: without customers there is no business.

EmptyWallet-sm

The question is; what do you do on a daily or weekly basis to recruit new customers? Below are 3 techniques that I’ve successfully used to get new customers.

  1. Volunteering.

Volunteering, especially for causes related to our products or services, is an easy way to get your name out there. For instance: I offer free group counseling sessions to women in public libraries every two months. When the libraries are advertising my events, they create flyers with my name, qualifications and contact details and post them everywhere in the libraries, and on their websites. This doesn’t only build my SEO since my contact information is included on their big websites, but it’s also free advertising for my company.  If you have a LinkedIn account, sign up for volunteermatch.com and start volunteering at these big organizations. Even if they don’t hire your services, if you do your job well, at the very least you will get a good referral.

  1. Blogging:

I’ve discovered that so many businesspeople resent blogging. However, blogging is simple especially if you have a passion for what you do. All you have to do is write weekly on subjects related to your business—such as this one for my business. As a success coach, I offer sales success strategies to especially small business owners. What I’ve done in this blog is offer you some tips that could help you recruit new customers. If you get interested, which I know you will, you will check out my website (www.tapthegood.com) for more resources.  And that’s how it all begins.

*When you blog, remember to connect your blog to all your social platforms.

  1. Host a “Wine and Peanuts” party.

People love free things. People love wine. Men love peanuts. 🙂 Host a party and include a raffle for guests to buy tickets to win complimentary services or products. However, don’t give away too much. If you are a service provider, offer no more than a 30 minutes complimentary session. Also, remember to have a guestbook to record their contact details. Ask them if it’s okay to email them periodical offers and/or free tips. Trust me; they will be okay with that. You’ve wined and fed them, and the law of reciprocity will naturally take effect.

EFT Session to Stop Resisting, and Just Allow Yourself to be.


Let-It-Rain-Gratitude-in-Grief-1

When we stop resisting our situations and just allow ourselves to fall into whatever seems to be the problem, the problem tends to dissolve. And the idea is not to stop resisting with an intention to dissolve the problems, it’s rather to allow whatever is bombarding you to invite the feelings that need to be activated without focusing on an outcome. This also means that we are 100% present; not in the past, or the future. We are just allowing…now…in the moment.

Here’s an EFT Session to help you get to that place of allowing.

Just tap on the meridian points as shown in the diagram below.

eft-tapping-points

 Round One:

I’m feeling it

It’s not enjoyable.

I’m prompted to resist the negative feeling

I’m tempted to find a solution

I’m tempted to keep running from these negative emotions

I’m tempted not to cry

I’m tempted to do something about this problem.

It sucks

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I can’t be still

I have to do something about this problem

This is not fun

This is not fair

I have to do something about this problem.

Round Two:

This is exhausting.

Maybe I should just be

What if I just dive into this pain?

What will really happen?

I know I won’t die.

I’m already feeling it.

So, I shouldn’t really resist it.

It’s okay and normal to be sad

It’s part of growth

I guess I’m just going to dive into this pain

I’m tired of resisting it

Here I go

I’m now allowing myself to feel it

I’m allowing myself to feel this pain

I’m allowing this pain to do what it is here to do.

I’m allowing myself to just be

I’m allowing myself to stop this resistance

I’m diving deep into this moment

Knowing that it’s okay to feel the way I feel

I’m letting go of the struggle.

It’s okay to just surrender to the process.

I’m now surrendering to the process.

In body, mind and spirit.

I hope this helps. Tap as many times as you can and very soon, you will feel free of the negative emotion by just allowing yourself to be. Remember that whatever we stop resisting remains with nothing to feed on: based on the fact that negative emotions tend to feed on our resistances.

5 Steps to Find out what your Customer Really Wants


Keep_Your_Customers_Coming_Back_and_Have_Them_Bring_Their_Friends_w_Them

Selling is one of the major functions of any organization, yet the least invested in. Most unsuccessful businesses think that learning how to sell is being corny. But I guess that’s why they are unsuccessful in the first place.

Below are some questions that you can ask a prospectus customer to establish what he/she really wants and if your product or service can satisfy his/her needs.

1. What do you like most about what you already have?

customer

2. What do you want that you don’t have?

Offer

3. Would it be fair to ask what you like least about what you’ve got?

4. Summarize the difference between what they want and what they’ve got.

5. Establish if your product or service provides the features and benefits that they are looking for, and then make an offer.

Final offer

If you are looking for sales success strategies based on customer psychology and the contemporary buying trends, contact me for a complimentary 30 minutes success coaching session. Send me an email at author@tapthegood.com.

Until then, have a success-filled day.

The Biggest Mistake That Business People Make:


The biggest mistake that wedge us from achieving what we want for our businesses and lives is NOT SETTING CLEAR GOALS.

   goals

How do we expect our brains to focus on finding the right resources without giving them the directions they need to take us where we want to go?

 directions 2

How do we expect to get somewhere without knowing where we are going?

 lost

It’s funny, because we set goals every day. We know that when we jump into our vehicles, we set goals to get somewhere at a particular time, and for a particular reason—whatever that could be.

goals are good

  1.  Why then do we find it hard to set concrete and realistic goals for our businesses?

  2.  What do you think blocks you from setting those goals, and then developing the strategies you need to help you get there?

 As you ponder on the above question, I have a resource for you. As a Success Coach, I have some great and unique personalized tools that we can employ to help you set articulate, clear and realistic goals.
