3 Tips for Consciously Creating Results in Your Business

Entrepreneurship is not for the feint hearted. It’s for the bold, the brave, the badass, big hearted carers who care more about what they can create and give back than fear, failure, judgment or pride.

In order to create epic results in your business, you first and foremost have to claim your coveted title as an entrepreneur and then do justice to it. Many entrepreneurs are struggling because they have not fully claimed their title. To be a conscious entrepreneur means to be an unstoppable force of good in this world. Once you realise that’s who you are and what you are committed to (no matter what), the rest (as Marie Forleo says) is figure outable.

My struggles to claim my title as an entrepreneur have taught me that there are three essential keys to success, which I want to share with you below so that you can get there quicker than I did and start seeing epic results in your business.

Here are three ways that you consciously create better results for your business:

1. Know your heart

You are the heart of your business so you need to be connected to your heart and what you truly and deeply care about. Those ideas you have that bring tears to your eyes when you let yourself feel what it means to you to create them, those are the ones worth pursuing.

You have to turn off all the noise about what everyone else is doing, how they are doing it and that voice in your head that tells you why you can’t do or have what you want. You have to make time for stillness and silence and feel what’s true for you.

Your ideas, desires and curiosity are always guiding you. Listen closely and act immediately, before those negative voices fill your mind with doubt and fear.

“The better you know yourself, the better your relationship with the rest of the world.” –Toni Collette

2. Take consistent action on your ideas

Once you know what you want to create and why, take action, every single day. Real clarity comes from taking action on your ideas, desires and curiosity. Rome wasn’t built in a day so be kind to yourself and careful not to have unrealistic expectations that leave you feeling deflated.

Make sure to give yourself credit for everything you have already done in the pursuit of your dreams and acknowledge the amazing person you have become. Focus on taking small consistent steps and remember that mastery comes from practice, so just keep at it and enjoy the process of honing your skills and refining your craft. You are most likely already ten times better at your craft than you think.

It’s really important to keep taking action, even and especially in the face of fears, challenges and obstacles. The universe always has your back and is giving you exactly what you need to become the person capable of receiving what it is that you want. When you understand that even the challenges are serving you and hold precious lessons, you become unstoppable.

“Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso

3. Be as bold as you can be

Big visions require big courage. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone, to feel exposed, and to be vulnerable. You have to love yourself enough to put yourself in the line of other people’s fire, because your vision and your success are going to trigger people. What you have created may be so outside of what they think is possible for themselves that the only way they know how to deal with it is by going after you. Meet people where they are, be kind where they can’t and choose to surround yourself with the people who get your vision and support you.

Being bold also means being fiercely committed to the truth. If you know you need help, be brave enough to ask for it. If you know you need to make a change in your business, make it. If you know you are capable of giving more, go for it. Lastly, give yourself permission to invest fully in being the unstoppable force of good that made you want to be an entrepreneur in the first place. The title is yours for the taking.

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
