If you follow me at all, you know I like to use the word “love”. Some people say it devalues the word, but I really mean it each time I say it. I do love people and that makes my job of connecting others quite rewarding. Yesterday, I watched my baby brother get married to the lovely Jessica Hottinger. All I could think was, they were meant to be together!
This made me think about the book I am reading, You’ll See It When You Believe It. I truly believe that phrase and though I don’t agree with everything I am reading, I have a couple things I would like to share that I think could help you in business and life.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer discusses how we are all connected. OneSong… Each thought you have can somehow effect someone else’s life and that if we all challenge ourselves to a life of love (there’s that word again) that we can all live more peacefully. I truly believe we affect others with our thoughts and actions which is why I constantly focus on sending out positivity.
Dyer quotes, “How many of you have had the experience of thinking about someone and the receiving a letter or phone call from that person the same day he or she appeared in your thoughts?” This happens to me constantly and reading about how he believe we are all connected makes me think even more about my role in our industry…
So how can this help my business?
Another quote from Dyer explains it best, “A networker finds it easy to give a great deal more than is expected, and understands that the way to feel successful and enlightened is to surprise others by giving them more than they expected. Networkers never try to accumulate power; they circulate all that they have, and encourage others to do the same.”
I was recently been asked to help others accomplish their marketing goals within an organization. My first thought was, “where will I find time?” Then I thought about the article, The “One Thing” Management Approach and how thankful I was for the opportunity to learn from a room full of marketing professionals… How could I say no to that! Also, I do believe if you do one thing for someone else, you will see how it can help you grow yourself.
Now… I ask you for “One Thing” Think positively about one social media platform. Pick your favorite, focus your thoughts and ask yourself… How could this help my business? You’ll See It When You Believe It… Let me know what you decide.
