3 Ways to think positive during tough times

Dear friend,

My big dream for you is that you reach your FULL POTENTIAL in 2014.
It is a must that you make your dreams a living reality and cling to your faith!

Thinking positive is KEY, because sometimes it may look like your dreams will never happen but it could be just around the corner, it could be closer than you think.

I am hopeful and optimistic that something wonderful is coming your way and so I want to encourage you with some ways to adopt a positive mindset while waiting for your blessings

1) Think of things to be thankful for:
I recommend writing out a list of 10 things that you are grateful in the morning and at night before you go to bed and thank God. I recommend that you read out your positive list also so that you can hear the good things that you have in your life out loud. You can also be thankful for good things that are to come i.e. ‘I am thankful that I will have a new car in 2014’, ‘I am thankful that I will get a promotion at work’ or whatever it is that you want. You can be grateful for big things such as achieving your degree to smaller things such as having socks to keep your feet nice and warm.

Sometimes we have idea what great things we have until we meet those that are worse off than us so we must practice gratitude, praise and thanksgiving everyday. Once I heard a story about a man that said that used to complain about his shoes until he met a man with no feet.

2) Trust:
If you are full of worry and anxiety it will be impossible for you to enjoy your life! It will also be impossible for you to be positive about your life because worry and anxiety only causes misery, stress and nothing else. Instead of worrying and being anxious; practice telling yourself that all will be well soon and trust that will work out well in the end. It may not seem like good things are around the corner and perhaps you have been waiting for years but just know that trust is essential. Allow yourself to be in total trust, knowing that God is fully in control and He loves and cares about you. ‘Give all of your worries and cares to God for He cares about you’
1: Peter: 5-7

3) Be Calm:
Being calm, cool and collected is a great way to become in positive in all areas of your life. If you are busy fighting every battle, stressing yourself out unnecessarily and causing trouble then it will be completely difficult for you to attract the good life that want because you are clearly doing things that fall into the category of negativity. So make a change today. Practice being calm in all situations starting from today!

Thanks a bunch for reading….pls leave me a comment below and let me know what you do to stay positive through troublesome times.

Many blessing

4 Qualities to Develop to be a Successful Female Entrepreneur

‘Outrageous success comes from thinking different, being different and having the confidence to always do what feels right in your heart’ – Marie Forleo

If you are reading this then chances are you are a female entrepreneur or perhaps you have dreams of becoming a female entrepreneur one day! if so congratulations, it is a great thing to challenge yourself to start or grow a successful business.

Through my experience of being a female entrepreneur I can honestly say that you will need to develop particular skills, qualities and characteristics to help you to be as successful as possible. Below I have listed 5 qualities that I would like to highlight:

shutterstock_1060369011) Be Disciplined:
It is important that you are disciplined if you want to be a female entrepreneur.
You will have to discipline yourself to:
– Do the work
– Stay motivated
– Be professional
– Be organised
– Be attendanable
– Manage money effectively
and the list goes on! You will have days  when you will feel like doing nothing or days when you will feel like just giving up but you will have to be disciplined to not give up but to push through to achieve success.

2) Be Focused:
It is easy to get distracted when you are trying to work on projects and tasks but at the end of the day you must ask yourself this question ‘How bad do I want to achieve my dreams?’ also ask yourself if it is truly important to watch TV for 5 hours or is it better to invest a good portion of your time working effectively on tasks that will lead to more money, more sales, new clients and success? Now don’t get me wrong…it is good to enjoy yourself and watch TV now and then, it is also healthy to take breaks throughout the day. But realise that being focused is the only way that you can achieve your goals so apply discipline during your working hours.

3) Excellent Customer Service:
It’s essential that you have excellent people skills and excellent customer service to run your business effectively!
Your business will require that you will interact with people so it is vital that you learn how to deal with people. Some clients and staff will be amazing, lovely and loveable this will make it easy to be nice to them and to give them a great service, but you will also come across some clients and customers who will be difficult and this will make you want to give them a poor service BUT it is important that you remain calm, professional and reasonable in your conduct with them.

I love this scripture in the bible that saysIf you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much. If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that. 48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect’. Matthew: 5: 46-48 NLT

This reminds us that no matter how people are we should still show love and good character and not allow things to get us down but still act with integrity and good etiquette. The scripture teaches us to love the unlovable. This does not mean that we will not have to take action if necessary but it means that we shouldn’t retaliate with irrational behaviour or anger.

4) Courage:
I encourage you to be courageous while working on your BIG vision of achieving your business dreams, goals and tasks!
There will be days where no one will believe in you and people will laugh at you and tell you to get a ‘REAL JOB’ but it is in those tough times that you must be courageous! Be courageous to follow your heart, be courageous to follow your dreams. be courageous to step outside of your comfort zone and be courageous to do amazing things. If you want to host your own seminar or conference or launch a new product GO FOR IT!! Make it happen, you can do it, it will take time, effort, planning and confidence but you can do it so give it a go!

There are more qualities that I would love to share with you…but it will take me another 5 hours to run through them!

Please leave a comment below and share any other qualities that you feel a female entrepreneur must have.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks for reading!

3 reasons why you are not making enough money in your business

If you aren’t making enough money in your business and if you are struggling to find new clients, I have listed key reasons why this might be happening:

1) You are not marketing enough:
Marketing is key for your business, this can be done online, at live events, on the streets, through phone, videos or emails. Be creative and look for ways to market your business

2) You have no vision of success:
What you see (in your mind) is often what you get, if you visualise yourself making more money in your business then you are likely to make more money. You have to imagine it, dream it, write down exactly how much you want to make and write out what you will do with the money when you get it

3) You doubt your full potential
Doubt is a great thief, it robs you of your business success, it limits and cripples you and makes you loose confidence in what you can achieve. You have you believe that wealth and abundance is coming your way, believe that new clients are searching for you right now.

These are just a few reasons as to why you might not be making enough money in your business.

There might be other reasons. Most of the time, if you are doing everything right and more it is often just to do with a matter of time, hard work pays off…it might not happen overnight but when it does happen your joy will be immense, you will jump for joy and jump with sheer excitement.

You can make more money in your business, set a goal and make it happen! Do all it takes and me to be successful in business.

Good luck

8 Ways to Build Yourself up and Love Yourself More!

Let’s face it – it can be tough some days! Whoever said it would be easy was just lying to you and to me!

We have days where everything is going perfect and then some not so good days!

quote by queen chiomaJanuary is one of those months of planning and setting the tone for the New Year. It can seem quite bland at times as you may not notice much going on! You might start to wonder if you will really achieve your dreams or were you just imagining it. You can do it! You will do great things this year! You just have to believe.

Spend this month building yourself up with LOVING thoughts and words and planning your step by step daily, weekly, monthly activities  for a bright 2014.

So the question that I want to ask you right now is ‘How can you love yourself more?’

Here are some tips/tricks/things that you can do on a daily basis to build yourself up which will lead to happiness, progress and success:

1) Receive God’s love for you: 
No that no matter what you are going through and no matter how quiet or stressful things are God is actually madly in love with you and He is in control. It may look like all of your hard work is going nowhere and that your efforts will never succeed but it is not true. Something amazing is around the corner, simply hold on to your faith 🙂

2) Decide to love yourself: 
Loving yourself is a decision that you and you alone have to make. Decide to love yourself, choose to build yourself up by making a solid commitment to be kind and loving to yourself. Even if you have weaknesses and even if you don’t always achieve your aims.

3) Become your own best friend:
Have you ever thought about how you treat yourself? Have you ever written down the thoughts that you have about yourself? Are they positive and edifying or are the negativing and destructive? I used to think negative…not about others but about me and one day God gave me a revelation and I decided to build myself up with positive affirmations. Become your best friend that encourages and supports yourself. Learn to enjoy your own company! Spend time finding out what you love and like and do more of those fun things.

4) Write love letters to yourself:
I challenge you to write yourself a letter and post it to yourself. Do this once a week for the next month and you will be surprised at how edified you will feel. The more you love yourself the more you will shine in your life, business and you will have better relationships with others.

5) Put positive reminders on your phone:
Put messages on your phone that pop as reminders i.e. I love myself, I am beautiful, I am courageous and strong. This is one of the best ways to remind yourself to think good things about yourself. This will truly build your confidence.

6) Reflect on your former achievements:
Look back at the great things that you have achieved in your life. Also include the small things that you have achieved to your list.

7) Hug yourself:
Give yourself a hug now and then! Also give yourself a pat on the back when you do something good i.e. after you give a presentation. You might not always have someone there to cuddle you or to pat you on the back so make sure you do this to yourself to appreciate yourself.

8) Confess good things about yourself: 
Make positive affirmations. This can be one of the greatest ways to build a healthy self-esteem and a great self-image. There is no way that you can possible achieve great things in life if you are negative and downcast. You have to speak good things out of your mouth over your life, over your business, you  have to declare good things! Write out a list of all the things you want and say them out loud twice a day first thing in the morning when you wake up and just before you go to bed at night. This will make you feel optimistic and more positive about life.

I want to leave you with this powerful quote:
‘Success is something that you attract by the person you become’
– Jim Rohn

Do you have any suggestions on how you can love yourself more?
Please share them below! Leave me a comment.

I look forward to hearing from you.

awesome tools that I use for my website1) Drop Box:
Dropbox is like a hard drive, an online cloud that you can access where ever you go. I only started using drop box a few months ago. This is a great avenue for recieving large files i.e. videos and high resolution pictures. This has been a great way for me to recieve footage that I can download and upload to youtube or to my website. It is great for sharing files  Dropbox is free, thet give you 2GB but you can also upgrade it to get more bandwidth.

2) Evernote:
You can download this app on your iPad or Mac Book (in the app store). Evernote is like a note book app that allows you to  gather all of your ideas and notes. I use this to jot down things that come to my mind whether that be ideas or information. I also use it to download PDF’s and e-Books that I purchase. It can also be used as a great tool for recording your ideas or notes as a audio playback file. If you are anything like me you love making positive affirmations. I sometimes record myself saying good things and listen back to it. You can access your Evernote files anywhere you go, it is cloud like dropbox. It is free (upto 2GB).

Happy 2014 – 4 Ways to Set Amazing Goals for the New Year

Happy New Year!

Happy 2014! I hope that you are having a wonderful start to 2014 so far. I hope you are all feeling refreshed, nourished and ready to do greater things this year than ever before!

1) Visualise your dreams:
531782_10152744813560347_859977695_n1
One of the best ways for you to set amazing goals for 2014 is to get what you want on paper! Write down a list of all the things that you would like to achieve in 2014. Then find amazing images that reflect each image. It is important that you spend time visualising what you want to see happen in your life, if you can’t see it (in your heart) it is likely that you won’t be able to have it! Start gathering several inspirational images from magazines, on the internet and print out words and sentences to back up each image. You can place all of your words and dreams onto a vision board, in your journal or dream book.

Example: Cut out a picture of Mexico, paste this on your vision board, write next to it ‘I am travelling to Mexico in July 2014’. Some say that you should write it as it has already happened i.e. ‘I travelled to Mexico July 2014’. I think it is better to say that you will go there, just because it is like ‘calling those things that be not as if they already were’ (Romans 4: 19) I think it is more natural too. However go with the way that feels best for you.

2) Be Inspired: 
One of the ways to gain the motivation that you need to set amazing goals and dreams in 2014 is to gain inspiration! Find positive role models that resonate with you. People that you dream to be like, people that make you believe that all things are possible. Leaders that believe in you, people that show you love, encouragement and support and learn from them. Some amazing people that I am inspired by are: TerriSavelleFoyCarrieGreen (Female Entrepreneur Association),
FabienneFredricksonAnnaSaccone , PatriciaBrightBrianTracy to name a few! I enjoy watching videos from these inspiring people for different reason.

3) Be Prayerful:
I know that not everyone reading this is a believer but prayer can be an amazing way to really start the New Year! Praying to God is a great way to find peace, gather your thoughts and find answers.  A great scripture in the bible that I really love is ‘Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. Philippians: 4:6Sometimes we think we have all the ideas and answers but by spending time in the presence of God He can actually reveal more about our future than we can ever possibly imagine. He can guide us on that right path that leads to life, light and happiness.

4) Mastermind with the right people:
One of my goals for 2014 is to mastermind with amazing people that have set big goals and those that are completely determined to achieve success. One of my aspirations is to start having monthly meetings with entrepreneurs and inspirational figures that are determined to achieve great things. By masterminding with great people this will not only allow you to meet like-minded people but it will also keep you encouraged to know that all things are possible and it will help you to stop playing small in your life. If you have amazing goals, dreams, talents and aspirations that you TOTALLY want to achieve in 2014, then I encourage you to join a mastermind group this year. Or even create your own one, you could start with 3-5 people that you meet with once a month and discuss success, books that you are reading and all things motivational!

I wish you success, prosperity, good health and greatness! Just know that you can do it. You can do great things in 2014.

Assignment:
Choose one of these areas and run with it! Make a plan of how you can start implementing one of these key areas today.
