Focus on Power

Power has been the focus of the Invisible to Invincible Podcast during the month of January. Have you been following along?

We began with the Power of Your Imagination in Episode 009. Did you hear the story about the woman who thought her brains had exploded out of her head because she thought she'd been shot? That was a powerful example of how an active imagination can impact you. 

Next we introduced you to the Power of Coaching in Episode 010. We talked about various ways to grow your business and if coaching was something that made sense for your situation.

This week we're going to talk with you about The Power of Belief in Episode 011. It's a concept that I'm passionate about. Henry Ford stated it well in his famous quote, “If you think you can or you think you can’t. You’re right.” 

Our last episode in this series is about the Power of Clarity. Of course I had to talk about Clarity. I'm a Clarity Coach after all. I'll tell you more about this episode next week.

 

 

The Power of Goal Setting

  • Do you want to create goals that are achievable for 2017?
  • Are ready to resonate with success for your goals next year?
  • Do you want to see your vision of success come true?

Join host Sherri Griffin and I as we discuss the Power of Goal Setting in this week’s podcast.

Before we started this week’s podcast, I asked Sherri if she had any research about goal setting and she came back with this information that she discovered.

A review of both laboratory and field studies on the effects of setting goals when performing a task found that in 90% of the studies, specific and challenging goals lead to higher performance than easy goals, “do your best” goals, or no goals. Goals affect performance by directing attention, mobilizing effort, increasing persistence, and motivating strategy development.
— Dr Edwin Locke and Dr Gary Latham.

This information was actually published way back in 1968 and based on the research by Dr Edwin Locke and Dr Gary Latham.

And then we had a huge realization which you’ll need to listen to the Invisible to Invincible podcast to discover what that was.

Here’s a hint, it’s about the power of goal setting. What happens when you set goals and what happens when you don’t set goals for your invincible year.

Reflecting on 2016

Do you want to build on the solid foundation and progress you’ve made in 2016?

Are you ready to tune into your learnings from 2016 to create your most invincible year in 2017?

Do you want to see your vision of success come true in 2017?

If you answered yes to just one of these questions, then this week's Invisible to Invincible Podcast is for you.

At this time of year, I’ve heard people exclaim how they just want to get to the end of the year and can’t wait to start with a clean slate for next year.  While others are just too busy getting ready for the holidays to even think about next year.  

Wherever you are, take the time to reflect on this past year. Look at everything that happened and pull out the positive learnings from everything.

Listen in as host Sherri Griffin and I discuss why you need to review everything that happened in 2016 and discover how to apply the positive learnings to make it your most invincible year yet. 

So, before you think about 2017, take a few moments to reflect back on 2016. Here are some questions to get you started.

What went well in 2016?

What will you leave behind in 2016? 

What will you do differently in 2017?

We'll have a checklist for you to use to reflect on 2016 in the show notes on the Podcast page and create a robust list of action items for you to create your most invincible year yet in 2017.

 

 

Wrapping Up 2016

Are you ready for 2017?

Can you believe that 2016 is winding down already?

As you begin to think about 2017 and all the possibilities it has for you, take the time in between festivities, parties and celebrations to clear out the clutter that's been piling up and finish the projects that are not quite done.

Take time to finish those projects, tie up the lose ends and clear out the clutter. 

Why is this important? Here's the theory behind this, everything which is incomplete drains energy from you & your success. 

So, only if you want to have an incredible year in 2017, take the time to clean it up, clear it out and wrap it up.

Listen to this week's episode of the Invisible to Invincible Podcast to hear more tips and ideas on how to create the foundation for your most successful year in business yet.

 

 

 

Are You Blossoming?

One of my secret passions is gardening. I love watching plants flourish and the flowers blossom. I love planting small plants and seeing them grow year after year. We moved into a brand new house last fall and right now all I can think about are all of the amazing flowers, shrubs and trees we will plant and watch grow every year.

Planting and nurturing a garden is very similar to starting and growing your business.  I love this quote that I came across. 

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.
— Anonymous

As you build your business, are you blossoming or concerned with your competition? When you put all of your focus on your efforts and shine your unique and bright light into the world, you will attract your ideal client. So focus on you and how you blossom.

As you spend time enjoying the beautiful weather at this time of year and see the flowers start to spring up, I hope you'll be reminded to blossom.
