Find Opportunities in Difficulties

“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties”.

Harry S. Truman

I thought this quote was awesome and timely. We are in a time of transition.

Are times challenging? Yes.

Are changes happening every day? Yes.

However, with that said, there are people and businesses right now that are taking this exact time of difficulties to make opportunities!

This is especially true in the online world. It is Sunday morning and I just saw a Purolator delivery truck on my street. It made me think that deliveries are now happening every day of the week to meet the demand of so many parcels and packages needing to be delivered at this time in history.

There are opportunities everywhere and we need only be open to see them. Time and time again we are reminded of the old saying that ‘change is the only constant’ but do you do what is also true?..… Opportunities are ALWAYS present too!

I hope that you go into this week the the mindset of excitement and you look at all of the opportunities that present themselves to you.

Having an abundant mindset is a key piece in the attracting abundance puzzle that is actually really easy to figure out, just sayin.

It goes something like this: Keep your thoughts on what you do want and not on what you don’t want. Be open to opportunities and see challenges and difficulties as catalysts for growth and opportunity, all while you maintain a positive and expansive mindset. 🙂

Have a great day today everyone and bring it on!

One Key Thing You Can Do To PIVOT Your Business Right Now!

We all know that as far as business goes in 2020 and beyond, it all changed overnight and in the blink of an eye!

We hear this term of ‘pivoting’ every time we turn around. Well I am going to get straight to the point.

One of the easiest ways to pivot your business right now is with a blog.

You may or may not currently have a blog for your business or brand, but either way you can start one or pivot your existing one to make it better for you to get better results.

Keep in mind that many businesses use blogs for various reasons… for sales, marketing, for promotion, or as an advertising tool and/or to enhance their customer service or technical support.

Blogs can be service based or revenue based or both, depending on the needs of the business. Either way a blog can help a company to grow, cut costs, build relationships and ultimately increase revenues.

If you are new to blogging I am running a 4 week course starting this Sunday to help you get started. You can learn about it here:

And if you miss this one and you are reading this in the future, please shoot me a message if you would like me to schedule another class. I would be happy to do so.

Chance? Or Change? You Decide!

Have a great day everyone!

“The I AM (your consciousness) is the only door through which anything can pass into your world. Stop looking (っ◔◡◔)for signs. Signs follow; they do not precede. Begin to reverse the statement, “Seeing is believing,” to “Believing is seeing(っ◔◡◔).” Start now to believe, not with the wavering confidence based on deceptive external evidence but with an undaunted confidence based on the immutable law that you can be that which you desire to be. You will find that you are not a victim of fate but a victim of faith {your own).”

Neville Goddard

Absolutely love this quote from Neville and agree 100%.

As a person who uses my imaging also known as using your imagination to create, I can promise you 1000% that this stuff works.

You and I are more powerful than we can ever imagine and that too is true because we live in a universe of Infinite Possibilities and that also pertains to our powers and capabilities. This a BIG DEAL and not to be taken lightly!

I hope this opens your mind up to all that is available to you.

I especially like thinking this way when it comes to internet marketing and the digital world. As business owners online, we have infinite possibilities and ways to create wealth online and there is no limit.

Have a great day everyone!

Your Own Blog Up & Running in 4 Weeks

Do you have a message to share? Or do you just want to express yourself in some way?

Maybe you love to cook and you want to share your excitement and enJOYment of it. Or maybe you know a lot about a certain topic like fixing old motors or lawn equipment and you would like to share what you know.

Or perhaps you are a small business owner or solopreneur who wants to get your message out there and brand yourself more. Or maybe you want to eventually monetize aka make money from the information you know.

Maybe you love to write poems and you want a place to showcase them to the world. Or you love to take pictures and you want to share your work. For example, I love to share the pictures I take at my lake house on the shores of Lake Superior in Canada and I do that on one of my blogs. You can see them here:

Starting a blog might be exactly what you are looking for!

Secure Your Financial Future By Becoming Virtually EmPOWERED!

Woman sitting on the couch and having a virtual appointment with her doctor and Maggie’s quote: “The easiest way to secure your own financial future in trying times is to secure it yourself!”

I am sure we would all agree that the virtual world has arrived. From kids taking e-learning classes online to people meeting with their doctors online from the comfort of their home… the online world is here to stay.

Businesses Hardest Hit

I think the hardest hit at this time in history right now is to small to medium-sized businesses that count on foot traffic.

Unfortunately, I don’t see this uncertainty and the constant changes every day, being alleviated anytime soon.

I highly encourage everyone I talk to at this time, to develop an online strategy of some sort for their business. Or to create an online business if they don’t have one, that generates income for them via the internet. It really is time to make money while you sleep at the same time as solving people’s problems in the world.

Perfect Storm

There is a perfect storm happening here for this exact way of creating income. One need only provide products, services and solutions to people via the internet. The people are already poised to purchase and are doing so willingly.

For example, people who were not much of online shoppers have literally overnight become active in that arena. E-learning and education are at an all-time high and projections are off the charts as to the increase expected at this time in history.

Everywhere you look, there are virtual opportunities to be had if one is willing to step up to the plate and pivot to the online world.

I hope that you too decide to take advantage of this opportunity to take an active role in your own financial future by securing it through the largest shift in the way we do business ever.

And if you are unsure of how to tap into this new world to secure your own income stream, talk to me! I have countless ways that might work for you and also can tie into things that you passionate about and that bring you JOY!

Take the plunge! 🙂

The JOY of the Journey

How often do we need to be reminded about the JOY of the journey? I don’t think we can ever be reminded enough.

Especially for those of us who are passionate entrepreneurs. We tend to ‘tear things up’ and ‘burn the midnight oil’.

It is easy to be living in the future or feeling like we are striving to ‘get somewhere’ and we forget to enJOY the journey and to enJOY the NOW.

I have a new saying that I like and it is a quote of mine and it helps me a lot! I love this so much that I am getting it imprinted on a coffee mug. If you would like one too, let me know 🙂

Picture of a woman sitting in a papason chair with a cup in her hand looking relaxed and the quote “Life is not meant to be rushed through… it goes fast enough on its own”.

I love, love, love this one because it reminds me to slow down. I especially want to do this because it A) Feels better and B) It is important for our health. Stress is truly the number 1 killer and constant adrenaline is never a good thing for the body.

I hope that today’s post reminds you to slow down and enJOY the journey a little more. Life goes by quickly and the more we can fully be in the present and be present, the better we feel and the deeper and more rewarding our life becomes.

Bliss Anti-Stress Formula

Why Choose Bliss® Anti-Stress Formula?

Our days are often at maximum capacity with responsibilities, commitments and engagements – with stress being an unfortunate byproduct. Stress affects everyone, which can cause undesirable physical and emotional effects. In many cases the effects of stress can lead to an overall diminished sense of well-being.

Life stops for no one, and stress has no mercy. Feel like you are running on fumes? Are you having a panicky moment? When you need a sense of calm focus, help ward off worries and tension with Bliss® Anti-Stress Formula. It contains a special blend of ingredients with adaptogenic qualities that help manage stress’ negative effects so you can get through the day cool and collected. This formula not only works to relax and balance the body and mind, it does so without promoting drowsiness. The Bliss® formula may also support your cognitive performance by promoting your mental clarity.*

According to an American Psychological Association’s (APA) study, worrying about the future of the nation, work and money are the top three most common sources of stress.1 Work and money have topped the list of this survey for years, however, the number of stressors in life are definitely not limited to these few. Studies show that family, relationships, health, poor nutrition, media overload, and lack of sleep can also be sources of stress.2 The APA also found that 77 percent of people experience physical stress symptoms, 73 percent experience psychological stress symptoms, and almost 50 percent of people say stress has a negative impact on their personal and professional life.2

Bliss is perfect for those stressful days or situations when you need extra support. So keep calm, carry on, and give your body the gift of Bliss!*

Never Give Up!

“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

– Harriet Beecher Stowe

This quote reminds of that old saying “most accidents happen close to home”. 🙂

I don’t know if it is true or not that most accidents happen close to home, but I do know that there is a power in never giving up.

Call it tenacity or what you will, it is powerful. One of the techniques that you can use to help you with never giving up is to use the thought process and the word process of saying things like:

“I know that my future self can handle anything and I am prepared”

And being prepared means to be prepared in your mind! 95% of the game is played in our mind, so don’t worry about being prepared with a million details, it is more important to be prepared in your mind and heart.

Trust

Learn to trust yourself. Look back at how far you have come and what you have been through and you will then have proof that you can trust you so there you have it! 🙂

So in conclusion, never give up, learn to trust yourself because YOU DO have YOUR own back and you know that you can handle anything that comes your way now or in the future because you say it is so and words hold the ultimate power.

3 Reasons To Trash Self-Doubt!

Self-Doubt is something we have all experienced I am sure. The dictionary defines self-doubt as, “the lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.” This is a very good definition, but it doesn’t fully demonstrate the problems caused by self-doubt and not believing in yourself.  Self-doubt, especially in business, can be the straw that breaks … Continue reading 3 Reasons To Trash Self-Doubt!

Stay On Course!

I don’t know about you but I can never be reminded enough about this very thing. We must stay on course and stay focused on our dreams and goals. Have a great day everyone!

Focus Pocus!

Let’s face it we all know that FOCUS is the new commodity and what we all strive for.

Here are a couple of tips on focus.

When you need to, ask yourself this question….

picture of a city with lots going on… and the words “What is the best use of my time right now?

I use this one a lot! It just brings me back into the present moment and point of focus. For example, when I am writing my morning blog posts and am bopping around getting pictures or quotes, it is easy for me to get side-tracked. Asking myself this question brings me right back to where I need to be. 🙂

Here is another tip:

Write down the words, “I am focused and I stay focused on my tasks”. Keep this close to you where you can see it and say it to yourself often throughout the day.

I hope you found these tips helpful and be sure to have a great day everyone!

3 Reasons To Trash Self-Doubt!

Self-Doubt is something we have all experienced I am sure.

The dictionary defines self-doubt as, “the lack of confidence in oneself and one’s abilities.” This is a very good definition, but it doesn’t fully demonstrate the problems caused by self-doubt and not believing in yourself. 

Self-doubt, especially in business, can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back so to speak.

One of the ways that I have personally gotten over self-doubt is by getting out of my own head and my own way! What do I mean by this?

I mean I quit making it ‘about me’. When I am doubtful I do a disservice to the very people I serve. It is my responsibility to do the best I can to serve others in the world and when I doubt myself, I dim my light and my ability to serve others is also diminished.

Just think of when you hire a professional or go to a professional. Maybe you need heart surgery and you ask your doctor what the success rate of this surgery is and they say something like.. “hmm I’m not sure, maybe ok but I don’t really know cause I feel unsure about it”.

Whoa! I think you would be changing docs real quick!

So we are no different no matter what our skill or trade. Maybe you’ve been studying web design or photography but you don’t know everything. Who does? What you do know is something and you should be proud of it and own it!

So I will leave you with three key concepts.

  1. Self-Doubt serves no-one!
  2. No-one knows everything so what you do know counts!
  3. You cannot serve others from a place of self-doubt so drop it asap!

I hope that you have found this helpful and that you my friend, will throw self-doubt out the window! 🙂
