Today I want to talk about a subject that is completely swept under the rug when it comes to job or career pivots. And that is the emotional effect of pivoting your career path.
When I reflect on my own journey of how I’ve used and reacted to social media I always come back to the idea that many see success on social media as having high engagement ratings.
* We seek validation that what we are doing is making an impact.
* That the time we are spending on writing captions and blog posts and podcasts is worth it.
* That someone out there is paying attention to our message.
Press play on this episode where I share with you what I’m doing instead of seeking validation through likes, comments, and follower count. It may just change the way you look and feel about content for good.
Boy, is that easier said than done. Especially when hard looks like missed sales goals, flopped ads, email unsubscribes, client return requests and alllll the things that get us down and out.
And no… all the cute Insta quotes in the world can’t pick us back up at times.
When we want things to be easy or at minimum handed a clear path to success… and we expect our actions to bring us closer to our goals… we are inevitably disappointed when things don’t go as planned.
Multitasking seems like a great way to get a lot done at once. I mean us entrepreneurs are always looking to save time and get more things done so if we can knock different tasks right after one another or at once – isn’t that a good way to increase productivity?
While multitasking might seem like you are accomplishing many things at once, research has shown that our brains are not nearly as good at handling multiple tasks as we like to think we are.
Ever wonder what the world’s most successful entrepreneurs looked like when they first started?
Ding, Ding, Ding…
Like beginners. They had no clue what they were doing.
Seriously. No one has it all figured out, especially in the early days.
But if you ever want to hit goals and reach the success you dream of – you must train yourself to start BEFORE you’re ready.
Alright, today I want to talk about something near to my heart this past year. I want to discuss those times when we get into a situation and we tell someone we are going to do something and then… by some matter of the situation – you don’t feel as that comment is valid any longer.
Let’s get real. Feeling completely overwhelmed and exhausted in your personal or professional life has nothing to do with how many awake hours you have to work.
It’s because the hours you do have you spend too much time trying to juggle more than one thing.
The highest cost of doing multiple things at once is a gradual, long-term decline in your productivity and satisfaction.
If I’m being honest, When you get in the habit of always dividing your attention you are half-assing every activity or task you do.
As we close out 2019 and enter a new year and a new decade it’s only appropriate to honor the past year by celebrating your joys, mourning your losses, and shaking your head at the wonder of all of it.
Today I wanted to get very honest and transparent with you and share an unexpected joy of mine from 2019.
I know many of you have direct sales experience or are currently in one so I think this story will help you in many ways find clarity if you are thinking of expanding or pivoting your business portfolio.
On the Last Episode I shared what steps to take to overcome the ‘comparison trap’ with a gratitude state of mind in order to live with such clarity you will have no time or need to compare your life to others. If you missed it, go back to Branding Bites Podcast Episode #9.
Today I want to piggyback off that topic and share ten caption starters In Order To Express Gratitude on Social Media as a business owner.
It will take some thinking (and probably thinking in a new way) and sharing some personal thoughts about your journey but don’t be afraid to get personal and let people into your world.
Remember, you are a brand and the more you can share who you really are the better it is for creating authentic relationships and trust.
Gratitude seems to be more top of mind at the end of the year and rather than doing the basic … I’m grateful for (fill in the blank), today I’m going to dig into why we have such a hard time with being grateful.
Because let’s face it… the reason we can’t be grateful for what we have is that we are constantly comparing it to what someone else has.
So why is this? Why can’t we just be grateful for the blessings in front of us right now? Instead of going that step further with the comparison.
