MM&I Header

January 14, 2013 -  Have you set goals that others believe are unachievable or even you believe are out of reach? Don't let this discourage you or hinder your ability to move forward. After all, a goal should be something that requires your attention, focus and effort to obtain. Otherwise, it wouldn't be a goal, but merely an item to do on your list.

Take an MM&I Moment to note any reasons why you or others believe a particular goal is unachievable or out of reach at this time. Then list what you need to know or do to make this a less critical issue now or in the future. By focusing on the most challenging aspects of the goal, you will create even greater momentum towards achieving the goal, perhaps even sooner than you originally anticipated. 


Synergized Quote of the Week 

"When it is obvious that a goal cannot be reached, don't adjust the goal, adjust the action step." - Confucius


Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

How are you telling your story when promoting your business? How are you giving your customers a feel for what it is like to do business with you and what inspired you to do business in this manner in the first place? Telling the story behind your business can give your customers insight in a very personal and compelling way. Your inspiration can become their inspiration to do business with you over competitors. To learn more about how to engage your customers within your business, read Secrets #14 (Relationships vs. Transactions), #18 (The Personal Touch), #20 (Celebration & Recognition) and #21 (The WOW Factor) in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order the book, CLICK HERE!
