Passion is the main secret between people who spring out of bed in the morning ready to take on the day and those who just simply trudge through the responsibilities of life. My friend, Lora Colautti, once shared a powerful term with me - Passion Plan.
The Passion Plan is a step by step guide to discovering and developing your personal passion. Most people are not lucky enough to get to live their dreams and passion. Instead, they work a 40 hour a week job pay their bills and just get by. It doesn’t have to be that way. Many times discovering your passion is the best way to start a profitable business.
In order to find your passion you have to search deep inside your soul. Start by asking yourself questions such as “If I could do anything what would it be?” Or “If I could spend each day doing something, what would it be?” And "If money were no object, the bills were being paid, and my house was paid for, what would I be doing every day?"
Answering these questions is the first step to devising your own Passion Plan. Devising your own passion plan is the first step to finding personal and professional happiness. People who are happy do things better and with more confidence, which always equates to more success. More success breeds more happiness so it becomes a positive circle that your life is wrapped up in.
Start to find your passion and see how it can equate into profits for you. When you are doing something you love it never feels like you work a day in your life. The first step to becoming that kind of person is to identify your passion and put a plan into place to start making it a part of your everyday life. In the coming days, I'll be sharing an incredible offer with you that will help you discover your passion and your purpose. Stay tuned...there's more to come soon!
Last Thursday I collaborated with Freedom 55 Financial and my local networking group, Live Laugh Love Local Luncheons
to help raise fund for an organization called, ShelterBox. I am an ambassador for this streamlined organization that
provides international disaster relief by providing emergency shelter provision. Check out what they do at http://www.shelterboxcanada.org/
We all had a great time. It was a mix and mingle shopping extravaganza with food, drink and incredible raffle prizes.
If you are looking for ways to meet new people and network with local business owners, try to put on an event in your local area.
It's so much fun! Check it out.
Sometimes the best way to figure out how to do something is just to do it. Many people get stuck in the planning process and become so overwhelmed by it that they never get to the part of actual doing something.
Although good planning is not always a bad thing, over planning and over analyzing can lead to missed opportunities. You may wonder, “Well if I don’t do all the planning what if I do something wrong?” The answer is that is okay. Mistakes are one of the best ways to learn.
You learn far more by doing something and making a mistake you then to try to plan ahead for everything. Even with the best planning many times you will still make several mistakes. Rather than trying to anticipate and avoid those mistakes, get out there and make them and learn from there. There is no better way to become successful at something than by just immersing yourself in it and going forward!
As you move through the steps of doing something, you will find out the how along the way. Doing and learning also offers another advantage that is that you can learn in baby steps and break down a large task into several small steps. This can make it easier to accomplish and make you more successful.
The next time you have a new idea that you want to do in your personal or professional life, start by getting in there and getting your hands dirty! You will figure out the how along the way once you start to act. And if you really want to ACT NOW and implement your savviest idea, contact me to find out how I can help you _start living your passionate best today.
"Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile, give him yours." -- Zig Ziglar
Some people think the idea that you can change the way you live is by being more positive is ridiculous. That could not be further from the truth. Though a positive attitude and the power of a smile, it keeps your spirits up to get through the more difficult times.
A smile is also a great gift. Sometimes a simple smile for someone is enough to lift their spirits. The best thing about smiles is that they are free and take little effort. Yet, the power of a smile can have a profound effect on your mood and those around you.
Next time you are feeling uneasy or unhappy just smile! Smile alone, smile at other people but whatever you do just smile. See how quickly it can bring your mood up and allow you to plow through whatever you need to tackle or think about.
Being happy is a personal choice you make everyday. You can choose to be happy or you can choose not to be. The power of a smile is so simple and so easy. Even if you don’t believe a smile can change your day, try it anyway, it costs you nothing and just might bring a whole lot of happiness your way. I challenge you to smile to 5 people today unexpectedly. Then come back here and share your experience.
Finding yourself and getting lost sounds like quite the contradiction. The reality is that sometimes to find yourself, you have to get lost. By getting lost I mean letting yourself live in the moment a little more. With everyone’s hectic lifestyles these days we can often forget that we have to make time that is all about us. Getting lost also means getting out of your daily routine and shaking up your life by doing something outrageous or spontaneous. Do something that gets you out of your everyday enviroment. I always recommend travel, but even if it’s a simple daily or weekly action that can work too.
When we were children, the world was all about finding ourselves. What did we want to be when we grew up? What clubs/groups would open up more opportunities? Once we get older, we get caught into more of the day to day and don’t spend nearly as much time discovering and implementing what truly makes us happy. Although we can’t walk away from our responsibilities, it is important to find the time time to discover what really matters to you.
Even if you only have a little time each week to discovering yourself you need to do it. Think about something you used to love that you just don’t seem to have time for anymore and spend a little time doing it. This brings back the memory of what passion for something feels like. Passion is the single biggest factor between a life of happiness and success and a life of mediocrity.
Lose yourself for a while and see how quick you find your true self again. Not your Mom or Dad self or your work self but your real personal self. Finding that person again will not only bring more happiness but also more success to your life.
What are some things that YOU'VE done to get lost and find yourself? Please feel free to share your experiences and discoveries.
Yesterday, I went to a networking event at Elmara Flowers located in Windsor, Ontario. As soon as I walked in the door,
I knew I was going to enjoy a wonderful evening. When I got home that evening, I sat back and thought about the experience.
It made me wonder, "What makes a networking event successful?" Here are the top 10 things that were done.
1) Atmosphere ~Upon entry there were friendly greeters at the front door and a DJ playing music
2) Organization ~ A receiving table, sign up sheets and name tags with plenty of pens.
3) A Welcoming Hostess ~ Alicia Elmara, was quick to introduce herself with a big beautiful welcoming smile.
4) Food and Refreshments ~ Plenty and a great variety for all to enjoy.
5) A Platform for Introductions ~ In this particular case, a microphone was available at the front of the room for introductions.
6) A Photographer ~ Whether professional or amateur, have someone designated to capture everyone having fun .
7) Door Prizes ~ Who doesn't enjoy winning a little somethin', somethin'?
8) Support Team ~ People who can help to introduce people and connect them. Some people are shy.
9) Over Deliver ~ Keep the price point reasonable and give everyone more than expected. THIS FREE EVENT shocked us all!
10) Follow-up ~ After each event, thank all those who came. A thank you card in the mail will make the best impact.
What experiences have you had with networking events? Any favourite tips? Please feel free to leave your comments or suggestions below!
Are you an entrepreneur? Do you have the same challenge that Sir Richard Branson and I have?
It's called A.D.O.S.!
You see, some people may have A.D.D. / Attention Deficit Disorder but I like to call ours something
a little different:
A.D.O.S., Attention Deficit...OH SHINY!
I was on a training call back in June. The guest speaker talked about this challenge. I wish I could remember his name,as I love to give credit where it is due. He talked about entrepreneurs always wanting to go to the next 'shiny' object.
We always see opportunity and our creativity can always find fun solutions in what others may see as difficult.
A.D.O.S. is the acronym for Attention Deficit OH SHINY!! You know how it is, you start here and then you go there. You
sometimes become overwhelmed because, you, as the visionary know it's all possible. How do you overcome this?
Well, Sir Richard Branson, is smart. He has the vision and then he puts together the team who can actually get it done.
He is the starter. He knows what he is good at and he knows how to delegate to people smarter than him!
Who is on your team? Do you have a team? Who is the first person you can put into place to start finishing the dream you have created.
Here's to all the A.D. OH SHINY! people out there. Embrace it! Recognize that it is o.k., however, start implementing your team
to help you get it done.
