MM&I Header

April 9, 2012 - Do you intentionally surround yourself with inspiration as a means of assuring that you are inspired on a daily basis? Being surrounded by things that inspire you helps keep your mindset positive. Being surrounded by and knowing what is meaningful to you helps keep you focused on what matters most to you. However, if these things don't propel you into taking inspired action, then you are not effectively empowering your potential to create what you ultimately desire.

Take an MM&I Moment to look around and note the different ways you help yourself stay inspired. Do you have favorite sayings posted in plain view, family photos displayed, motivational tapes and messages you listen to and read, favorite mementoes that remind you of where you ultimately want to be? Now think about your goals, your tasks ahead of you and your day ahead. What "inspired action" comes to mind that you can take to make what you desire more real and more probable. Challenge yourself each day to take inspired action of some kind, no matter how simple of a step or intimidating of a step it might be. Before you know it, everything you do is inspired action, effectively getting you where you want to go.

Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

Are you in the services or consulting field? Does your pay or business income rely on you being face-to-face and day-to-day, hands-on producing and delivering the offerings?  One of the greatest challenges right now for many baby boomer entrepreneurs in service or consulting businesses is how they will ever be able to retire or reduce their business' reliance on them to operate. One way to begin to take charge of this is to productize your expertise. Do you have a specialized knowledge, special approach or unique process that you could turn into intellectual property, products or programs?  Chances are you do and  others would be anxious to buy into or benefit from these tangible offerings.  To learn more, read Secret # 11, Productizing Expertise, in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order the book, CLICK HERE!
