Playing The “Inner” Game Of Success

Your outside reality is created by your inner beliefs.

If what you’re doing right now is not creating the level of success you want, then you MUST change what you are doing. Until you learn how to master the “inner” game of success, all of the other business building and personal development techniques in the world will not help you reach your goals.

So what do you do?  Where do you turn?

How do you begin the process of mastering the rules to the “inner” game of success?

Here are three suggested resources:

  • Building Self Confidence by Hani Al-Qasem
  • Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
  • Personal Journal Journal about your journey of development

As you begin the journey of enlightening your inner perspective, one key to being successful is to make a personal commitment to your dreams and goals. Once you have a clear vision of where you want to go with your journey – then you must make a personal commitment to that vision. Commit in the same way you would make a promise to someone else you love.

Use the resources above and get started immediately. Don’t delay!

The world awaits your greatness!

Until next time…

Letting Go Cafe-messy business cards

Manage All Those Business Cards – Then Let Them Go

BManage All Those Business Cardselow are seven steps for managing ALL of those business cards that you collect at networking events and/or from being out and about at various business functions. You may be able to increase your revenue by 1 – 2% over the next 8 months, by simply following up with the business cards you have laying around and stacked up around your office.

  1. Categorize your business cards by industry
  2. Sub-categorize them according to the products are services you offer
  3. Decide what data you need to keep
  4. Set up your database according to industry, products/services you offer, and the data you need to collect in order to market effectively
  5. Create a script for email, snail mail, and/or phone – for each industry and each product/service
  6. From the scripts – create templates for follow up email and letters
  7. Send out your messages to each each of the databases

THEN, let those business cards go – recycle them. Literally shred them. Any info you want to keep and/or follow up on from the cards, simply put in to the database.

Don’t have time to create a database system of your own? No problem! Lucy M. Barela, a business colleague, suggested the following resource. This website is a good start for getting in the habit of collecting, inputting, and following up with your potential leads – immediately after you get them. Its getting in the habit that matters the most.Letting Go Cafe-messy business cards

Lucy recommended www.zoho.com. This website will allow you to set up a database that will facilitate the execution of the seven steps above. Zoho’s introductory level is free.

Every time you attend a networking event and/or meet someone and collect their biz cards, immediately plug those cards in to your follow up system and then – let the cards go. By letting them go I mean shred and recycle the paper (smile). Remember – any and all info you want to keep regarding those cards, you can put in to your database. Why not save a tree, or two, or three (smile).
