Who doesn’t want more JOY in their life? How about in your work? I struggle with the word ‘work’ and I think I know why….. It’s because of a secret. The sooner one understands and learns this secret, the sooner JOY unfolds. What is this secret? The secret is that once you discover what you […]Joy in Your Work — MaggieHolbik.com
Let me ask you this? If you went to the hair salon and were in search of a new style and asked the stylist to recommend a style for you and they said something like… “Umm, geez, I am not sure… umm maybe this one might look good, but then again, I can’t be certain”…. etc.
How would you feel? Would you feel like that person was not sure of themselves? Would you feel you were paying a professional who was not up to snuff?
Having the confidence to promote and own your worth is a HUGE deal in business. Read the words of T. Harv Ecker from his book “Secrets of The Millionaire Mind”:
“Resenting promotion is one of the greatest obstacles to success. People who have issues with selling and promotion are usually broke. It’s obvious. How can you create a large income in your own business or as a representative of one if you aren’t willing to let people know that you, your product, or your service exists? Even as an employee, if you aren’t willing to promote your virtues, someone who is willing will quickly bypass you on the corporate ladder.”
By owning your voice. so to speak, and being able to promote yourself or your business in an honest and ethical way is a very important component of business success. It is our job as business owners and entrepreneurs to share our gifts and our gifts of service with the world. It is our job to promote ourselves and our skills so that we can be of service to others. Self promotion is important for two reasons. 1) To let people know what you have available for them and 2) To set the stage for trust and mutual benefit from what you have to offer.
Whenever you doubt yourself or you question promoting yourself, think of a role reversal and how you would feel it that person was not confident in their role. My favorite is the surgeon. You: “Hey Doc. how do you think this surgery will go for me?” Doc: “Mmm geez I don’t think I am that good so I really can’t say. I’m just not confident in promoting myself or this procedure”. 🙂 LOL see what I mean? 😉
Yesterday I got in the mail Marie Forleo’s new book “Everything is Figureoutable”.
I just started reading it and I know I am going to LOVE it. Just what I’ve read so far this morning, has fired me up. She talks about her mother and it reminds me so much of my late mother.
Here’s what I mean…. this is from the book on page 3
Marie came home one day to find her Mother fixing a little radio that she loved and that had broken. This is what transpired:
Marie says: “I stood there for a second, watching her work her magic. Finally, I asked, “Hey Mom, how do you know how to do so many different things that you’ve never done before, without anyone showing you how to do it?”
She put down her screwdriver, turned to me, and said, “Don’t be silly, Ree. Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is figureoutable.”
I was transfixed, reveling in and repeating these words in my head: Everything is figureoutable. Everything is figureoutable. Holy shit, yes….
I love this attitude. My own mother was exactly like this. She lived in Northern Ontario, Canada, and had access to very little but could fix anything or figure out a way to make things happen. She also had an attitude of anything is possible. I can hear her in my mind “Oh, you can to”. This was one of her favorite sayings in response to someone wondering if something was possible or if they could indeed do something in life.
I know I will be highly recommending this book and can’t wait to dig in!
I will close with a quote from page 7 of the book: “We need you. We need your heart, your voice, your courage, your JOY, your creativity, your compassion, your love, and your gift. Now, more than ever.”
Earlier today I wrote a blog most over on my main blog MaggieHolbikBlog about exactly this through using our own expression and creativity. You may enJOY reading that post too. Here is the link: https://maggieholbik.blog/2019/09/24/the-real-work-of-your-life/
I hope that you find the courage to know that everthing is indeed ‘figureoutable’ so that you can step up to the plate of life and share your gifts with the world. As Marie says “We need YOU!”

Pay your bills with JOY and watch what happens!
Today I was doing some organizing and lately I have been into using decorative file folders. I love to decorate my life and work with anything that makes me feel good. In fact I am starting my own e-commerce store with products just for that! It’s pretty exciting and fun so stay tuned for that. 🙂
Anyhow, this morning, I was making a new file folder for my ‘bills to pay’ and here is what I wrote on the tab: “Bills to Pay with JOY”
One of the secrets I have learned along the way when it comes to attracting abundance into your life is this: It is hugely important to show your appreciation and your JOY for abundance. One of the ways you can do this easily is by being HAPPY for other people who are successful. Yes this is correct. When you see happy, successful and abundant people, be super happy for them. This tells the universe that you are tapped into the art of abundance and then you can call it to you. You will then vibrate in an abundant frequency and call more abundance to you. Keep in mind that abundance is not just money, it’s all the good stuff… love, JOY, happiness, success, expansion, growth, etc. etc. etc.
When you look at someone else and are feeling personal lack or resentment, guess what you will attract? Yep, lack and more resentment. Think of the word re-sent-ment…. you will resend that frequency back to yourself!
So back to my file folder. When you pay your bills do it with JOY. This tells the universe that you have enough to give and that you are able to pay those bills. And even if you are currently struggling with finances, it still shifts your personal frequency to that of abundance, expansion and there is more coming!!!!
I promise you that if you can shift your thinking and feeling from lack to appreciation, magic will happen. The laws are very simple and when it comes to abundance in any area of life, the more you can get in the vibe of it, the more of it you can attract it to you. It’s an awesome thing really. 🙂
Here is a link to another blog post I wrote before on Abundance if you would like to read that too. https://maggieholbik.blog/2019/05/26/are-you-abundant/

Lately I have been really tapping into the power and wisdom of investing in oneself. I am a firm believer in personal development and ongoing learning. In fact I consider myself a self-educated junkie that never stops and I LIKE that about me!
I am forever taking courses, buying courses, buying books, reading books, attending webinars, watching videos, collaborating with others, traveling for training, signing up for people’s newsletters etc. etc. etc. You get the idea. I am an info maniac 🙂
Now the cool part is that I DO use all of this info! Being a Life and Business Coach as well as my newest addition to my coaches kit of a Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer, I am able to help others by using all of this ongoing learning I partake in. So it helps me and it helps others. I see myself as a shortcut for people or a bridge of information. I can coach them and help them fast track certain information to help make it easier and faster for them to make changes or implement knowledge that can get them the results they want or need. It works. 🙂
I truly am in love with my new work as an Infinite Possibilities Trainer and Coach! I travelled to Denver, Colorado this month and trained under Mike Dooley directly. Mike was in the movie “The Secret”. Even the words ‘infinite possibilities’ resonates with me. I love helping people to expand their minds, their hearts, and their options in life. And I love that we live in an era of infinite information that people share and that the internet allows us to benefit from all of this. These are truly exciting times.
Wrapping this post up, I would encourage anyone and everyone to be open to investing in themselves. Who better to invest in but YOU?
Never stop learning, keep growing, keep evolving and watch your life soar to magical heights! I believe in YOU!

Thriving Not Surviving!
Life is a beautiful adventure and no matter where you’ve been thus far in your life and no matter what so called mistakes you’ve made, this is true for all of us… thriving is our default setting, not ‘surviving’. How exciting is this? We are here on earth to thrive and to reach for the stars!
Many of us suffer from limiting beliefs that can affect our ability to thrive, but the exciting news is we can change our thoughts and it is as simple as changing our mind. Thoughts are things and thoughts become things. Thoughts are tools we can use to create the lives we desire.
Thoughts about our business also create our reality about out businesses and what we have to offer.
What kind of thoughts do you have? Do your thoughts revolve around being excited to make a difference in the world? Do you have thoughts that support your belief in the fact that you have something amazing to offers others?
Are your thoughts SELF-empowering?
Do you have thoughts like:
I can do this!
Things work well for me!
I love what I do!
I love helping people!
I love serving others!
I have a lot to offer!
The products and services that I offer and recommend HELP others!
I am here to help!
Things work easily for me!
There is no limit to the thoughts you can start generating and running through your own programmer… your mind! Start controlling your thoughts rather than having your thoughts control you and watch the magic happen. 😊

I was just reading an old book I found from 1995 about customer service.
I saw this statistic and thought WOW!
Here it is:
If someone has a bad customer service experience, they would likely share their bad experience with about 11 people. This was BEFORE social media.
So in 1995 that stat was alarming enough, considering both customer acquisition and retention are a huge component of having lifetime share of customer and increasing business growth…. BUT now we have social media and can you just imagine how far and wide a negative review can travel?
This is why it’s extremely important to provide outstanding customer service that goes above and beyond the competition. In fact, it is wise to over deliver and under promise.
This sure made me think twice about the importance of customer service. I personally LOVE serving my customers and I en-JOY doing whatever I can to both develop long term relationships and to foster growth for both my customer and myself. To me, it is all about mutual benefit. It is never a one sided relationship and I have always understood that every customer or relationship that I have may be a gateway to an entire ocean of customers so one customer really equals a world of customers.
I hope you found this post today insightful and I would love to hear your comments.
