3 ways to stand out in 2017
Yes, all the promises begin as the new year starts but are you sticking to them? I’ll share with you 3 ways to stand out in 2017.
Let me just say first… we all make false promises at the beginning of the year so how about we just don’t say anything and simply let success run in silence, shall we?
What I have learned in 2016 has been good and bad so I’ll share with you the bad first.
-If you’re just starting make sure that you don’t just post a blog and let it sit there. You MUST and I mean this, share your blog across all the social media platforms you currently use. I share some of this on here.
The good- If you’re new to blogging share content that resonates with your audience meaning find a niche that you’re passionate about. If you’re into relationships then share tips on how to’s, tips, advice, etc. Share tips that will ultimately fix a problem.
I didn’t realize that until like in my 9 months of blogging and I have found to be very helpful.
Posting for the heck of posting will get you nowhere.
I regret not using Meditation last year enough. This is key to pushing your life + business forward.
Setting space to set some intentions and spending time focusing on my breathing is one habit I’m creating to stand out in 2017.
You can practice instructing the mind to remain quiet for the duration of your session, this will help you connect with your inner source and get into alignment.
Give yourself space your mind will start to wonder but give it some time and it will slowly come to concentration.
How important is it to visualize daily?
Per some sources visualizing is very powerful and it is proven to refine your image and help you with changes in your life. It also helps you to recognize what resources you’ll need throughout the day and most importantly reach your goals.
You also create inner motivation and it gives you the power of positive thinking but how do you do it?
Well the same way you would as if you were meditating but instead you’ll visualize and dream just let your imagination do the work. Pay attention to the way you feel, what emotions are coming up for you? Are you feeling happy? Excited? Intrigued?
Here’s what golfer Jack Nicklaus said about visualizing:
“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp in-focus picture of it in my head. It’s like a color movie. First, I “see” where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I “see” the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there’s a sort of fade out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the precious images into reality.”
How amazing is this? So, to give you some good hope, yes you got this, chic.
I realized last year was that I was not posting enough on all social media platforms. I lacked consistency.
Consistency is the bread and butter of your business.
Posting daily or weekly can be a gift and it’s important that you do this often. Batch as much as you can and take 3-5 hours a week to do this. The more consistent you are the quicker you come up with a system to do it faster and more efficiently.
Blogging in the spot is harder and this is something I’m holding myself accountable because it is hard for me to just come up with content right away.
It also helps if you’re working the 9-5 you can set aside 4 hours and split your time in intervals of two hours each.
What else are you going to do to stand out in 2017?
PS… If you’re looking for more ways to grow your business and you need a sisterhood to keep you accountable.
