How can the energy of love help you in marketing and growing your business?
I recommend you to read the ten scrolls from the book The Greatest Salesman in the World by Ong Madino. Here are the catchy phrases from scroll number 2 in the book which captured the essence of Love.
I will greet this day with love in my heart.
With love, I will increase my sales a hundred-fold and become a great salesman. If I have no other qualities, I can succeed with love alone. Without it I will fail though I possess all the knowledge and skills of the world.
Lanterns or light are often used in Asian cultures and religions, they surely have a spiritual and philosophical meaning for life. Light is like the source of life, and we need it to keep us alive and make life meaningful.
Bright red lanterns come in all kinds of sizes are such delight to see during Chinese New Year festival. People rejoice over these lanterns as they bring a sense of happiness and a promising bountiful new year.
Each of us has light inside of us. We need to take care of it so it’s shining brightly within us, and we also can shine for others when we are stronger.
Tangerines are quite popular in Chinese New Year. Children usually prefer tangerines rather than mandarin oranges because tangerines are seedless, sweet and bite-sized. In Chinese tradition, Oranges and tangerines are often associated with happiness and abundance. Therefore, we have plenty of these fruits at home during chinese new year, and we exchange them with relatives, neighbors and close friends to wish them happiness and abundance.
I feel like that we are still in New Year mood in early January. Everyone talked about their New Year resolution and goals. It looks like they really want to work on their goals to make year 2019 better than the last year. It’s true that we always high hope in the beginning of the year to set our ambition.
I recently conducted a survey for small business owners to share their challenges and their dream solution, what they hope for.
If you are running a business and you are doing it solo, you can participate in the survey here. 🙂
Why do we want to set goals?
This quote answers the WHY question perfectly.
We all have goals: We want to matter. We want to be important.
We want to have freedom and power to pursue our creative work.
We want respect from our peers and recognition for our accomplishments.
Not out of vanity or selfishness, but of an earnest desire to fulfill our personal potential. Ryan Holiday
Goal setting is not just writing our goals, planning our activities, taking actions and voila, we achieve our goals.
We can’t control the outcome, but we can certainly control our mind and our actions.
We can’t control the wind, but we can adjust the sail.
In the previous post, I talked about stumbling blocks that can sabotage you from achieving your goals.
Today, you are going to learn the x factors which can possibly help you achieve your goals. Good news for you! 😀
It’s almost the end of year 2018 and if you are among 3% of people who set their goals and expectations for year 2019, congratulations! 🙂
We all know that SMART GOAL is the most popular tool that can help people set goals more achievable and timely. However, in the process of achieving goals, there are some stumbling blocks standing between you and your goals. Stumbling blocks can hinder or take us away from our goals. I usually observe them from my own experiences and also from clients whom I coach. Here are the list of most common stumbling blocks which stand between you and your goals.
I understand that you try to be self-sustaining, hoping to work it out by yourself.
You don’t want to share your challenges, hope and goals with someone else because you don’t trust them. They may belittle or disagree with you.
I was in the same situation previously in building my career online.
I always said, “I can do it by myself. I don’t need any help. I can ask uncle Google. Google always gives me the answer”
I believe that having someone to support you is crucial. Knowledge and information themselves can’t give you the solutions. Humans can’t operate like a machine which can process the information because humans are more intelligent and at the same time, they are emotional too.
How can coaching discovery help you?
Coaching discovery is for people who are new to coaching and want to experiment coaching. Most people keep their ideas and problems to themselves, it is an opportunity for you to share your challenges and hope to a coach. Because the nature of coaching is non-judgment and confidential, you will let go of your fear and telling whatever you need to tell without the fear of being judged.
