Last week I discovered an amazing coaching course regarding mindset.
For a while I know my thoughts have been taking control of me and my actions- like a runaway train, often with near catastrophic results.
A result of grief, or a result of my role changing as a Mum or maybe it was just Covid.
I knew I was having more bad days than good as I have suffered in the past with mindset. I needed to do something. I watched a free webinar and it changed my outlook and ideas. It focused on hypnotherapy. It was really wonderful.
The webinar was a taster of a course. A course that cost more than I have ever spent on me or a training that wasn't qualification based. (Money blocks right here!)
I was tempted, for days I came very close to signing up for it.
However some very wise business owners made me realise it wasn't the right time and I couldn't devote 5 hours a week.
Now instead of feeling deflated I decided to try and make some changes myself. I asked for recommendations and shortlisted myself to 5 books to start reading. Exploring mindset, big leaps and money thoughts. Here was my shortlist:
Luckily some where available to read now, so I started with 'Just F*cking Do It' by Noor Hibert. I chose this first as she is a psychologist
The course I had intended to complete was also led by a psychologist. It made sense, although I wasn't too keen on the title.
That night I started reading. Within 2 pages it was clear this was not what I expected- it was psychology and manifestation.
I have tried manifestation in the past briefly, but I couldn't seem to figure it out. Have you tried it?
After discovering the premise of the book I asked myself do I ditch this and move onto something else, or give it ago? I had nothing to loose.
Task 1- ask for a gift and it will come within 24 hours.
I sceptically thought I will try this and if it doesn't work I haven't lost anything.
Hour 12- I went to work. Within 30 minutes I had a sale of my new workbook. Was this the Universe's gift? Probably not after all you don't create something for a gift.
Hour 13- I waited all day and looked out for something. I knew it wouldn't be much but I looked out.
Doubt crept in... no gift.
Hour 23- I headed home, we ordered our Saturday night takeaway. And I had accepted at this point there would be no gift. Oh well I thought.
Then the takeaway arrived. The first thing they gave us was a bottle of branded Cola. My first thought was hang on this isn't ours.
I queried and the delivery driver said 'you get a free gift.'
Scepticism jumped it- they are giving it to everyone, it's normal, it's a fluke.
But then I asked myself am I right? We have ordered before and got some fortune cookies and prawn crackers, but never in 30 years have I had a complete bottle of branded Cola. Have you ever received a free bottle?
This was the gift.
It may be down to how you see things, but I knew that was the gift and the proof.
So now it's onto the next chapter ( experience to follow....)
Have you used manifestation? How has it impacted you?
How you can make sure your marketing message makes you
We all understand how important it is too make a good impression.
I read recently it takes 7 seconds for someone to form a first impression when you meet them- it seems crazy doesn't it?!
It's exactly the same when people see your business, whatever they see will impact the impression that they form of you.
Now although this can seem incredibly overwhelming, this can be used to our advantage. Because we can use this knowledge and create one sentence that will create the impression that we want to give our clients.
How? Through our marketing message.
This one magic sentence is all we need to influence how our customers see us, and it is really easy to create.
I have developed a 4 step system to help you create the perfect marketing message and I have created a video just for you, which explains it.
The video can be found here.
In the video I will teach you step by step how to create a marketing message that sticks in your customers mind, and tells them all the fantastic benefits that you bring to them.
Although I share a lot in the video, I have covered this topic in much greater detail as part of the Attracting Customers Bootcamp, so if you would like more information on the topic or further guidance then please have a look at the course here.
I would love to see your marketing messages and if you would like to share yours, please pop along to the facebook group and come and say hello.
In the meantime have an amazing week.
