MM&I Header

October 28, 2013 -  Are you feeling drained because of a continuous flow of frustration you are experiencing from a variety of sources? Or is one particular situation affecting your morale and your motivation, which is causing you as much  frustration with yourself as you feel about the circumstances causing you stress?  While we cannot control what is thrown at us at any given minute to deal or cope with, we do have total control over how we respond, react and choose to move forward to get beyond whatever is affecting us.

Take an MM&I Moment to pause and consider everything that is frustrating you from a more objective perspective. List everything that is causing irritation, disappointment, delays, ineffectiveness, inefficiencies, dissatisfaction or disenchantment for you right now. Instead of viewing each item as something happening to you, view each situation from the mindset of what you can do for you. Note one thing you can do to make the situation easier, better, more comfortable, satisfying, effective, efficient or whatever you believe can be done in spite of what is out of your control. There is always something you can do, no matter how small, that will help you make the shift from feeling frustrated to fabulous.


Synergized Quote of the Week

"Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination." - Ralph Marston


Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

How are you practicing what you preach in what you are providing or how you are approaching those you are serving in your business?  A company that is successful because it "walks its talk" is a company that also is trusted and valued, not only by customers, but by employees, vendors, others in its industry and the marketplaces it serves. If your company suffers from saying and then doing different things, or from the "cobbler whose children has no shoes" syndrome,  learn more about how to put what you intend to do into everyday action by reading Chapter 8 (From Conflict to Purpose) in my book, Me, Myself & Inc. or Secrets #3 (Beyond Capabilities), #9 (Investment vs. Expense), #18 (The Personal Touch), #21 (The WOW Factor), #22 (Beyond Customers) and #25 (Circles of Influence) in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order either book, CLICK HERE!

IS YOUR AGE AGING YOU?  This is the topic of my Me, Myself & Inc. column in the October issue of Sophie Woman's Magazine. I have always been fascinated by how men and women self-impose limitations upon themselves based on their ages instead of what they are truly capable of doing. Could your age be aging you?  CLICK HERE to read the column on page 29.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE "SHOP" YOUR BUSINESS? In my October BizGrowth 5.0 column, I share the five shopping mentalities of potential customers in the first of a two-part series. Whether you are focusing on B2B of B2C in your offerings, you should read this column and then stay tuned for its second half in November. If you are counting on big holiday spending from your customers, then you should read both columns, take notes and then take action!  Read the October column by CLICKING HERE.
