Now more than ever it’s been harder for entrepreneurs and business owners to really stand out in the marketplace.
If you're a coach, consultant or you’re a service provider, I’m sure you’ve seen how the marketplace is super saturated and to make matters worse you might be thinking of throwing in the towel because of low sales, crappy clients or customers.
If you have a brand that attracts higher end clients or if you’re looking to attract more of those-then you’re in the right place!
I’ve found by doing ONE simple thing every single day can literally push you beyond your competition and as a result, increase your revenues.
First realize that competition is needed and necessary for your growth. Without competition it would make you stay in your comfort zone. There wouldn’t be any desire for you to go to the next level either.
Think about it, if you gave a child anything it wanted whenever it wanted that child would grow up to be very dependent on other people and wouldn’t have the necessary skills to think critically and most likely develop a mentality of entitlement.
It can be frustrated understanding how your business can stand out in the world today, especially if you know you have a valuable service to offer. I know I’ve wanted to pull my hair out in the past just trying to figure this all out until I started doing this ONE thing every day that, that made a HUGE difference in inspiration and income that I will share with you in this post.
I look at the influencers of today and reverse engineer how they got there. As I researched and have interviewed over 100 highly successful business owners and leaders of multi-million and billion dollar companies, that ONE THING was clear with achieving their success.
The ONE thing that set these influencers apart was having a
Here are a few examples…
Ingrid Vanderveldt, is an American businesswoman, media personality, and investor. She was the first Entrepreneur-in-Residence for Dell and is the founder and current CEO of the Empowering a Billion Women by 2020 movement. She has a vision she works on every day.
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors
mentioned in an interview that they don’t do millions of advertising rather they focus on the foundations of creating a great product which is a big partof their vision for the company.
Simon Sinek’sTedEx Talk that has been seen by millions of how Apple built a successful brand also shared this same core principle, which he calls the ‘WHY.’ The why is exactly part of the vision.
When you have a clear VISION of your business you will find that it doesn’t matter what your competitors are doing because a leader with a vision doesn't fear the future rather they CREATE IT.
It’s not about getting rich quick either, because if you want to build a solid foundation slow and steady wins the race and any successful company has a strong vision to support it. Companies that don’t have a clear vision crumble quickly.
Think about the latest fad diets that people jump on- then they loose weight fast only to regain it back quickly.
“Forget about the fast lane.
If you really want to fly, just harness
your power to your passion”
I used to have a fitness business so my approach was always about having a long-term vision of what the client desired.
My approach allowed my clients to create and sustain their ideal body. I even helped one of my client’s win a trip to Hawaii by entering a contest called, “Body for Life.” He was picked out of 50,000 entries too!
Your vision is the DRIVING force of what I call your Business Evolution. Before I had a vision I would get triggered with clients leaving, attracting bad ones, and always questioning whether I should be doing this.
Have you ever second-guessed what were doing or the path that you are on?
If you have been or are right now, you’re not alone because many do when they have no vision or their vision isn’t clear enough.
You look at everyone else wondering if they have the SECRET sauce for your riches.
The truth is the SECRET is locked up inside of you and it’s about living what I call La Dolce Vita: The Formula For Fabulous Living. You shine above all others when you develop and understand what your unique brilliance is. This means not copying others when it’s truly not who you are. Also it means being willing to be most authentic and sometimes radically different from what others are doing.
“Great ideas often receive violent
opposition from mediocre minds.”
– Albert Einstein
This is why your unique expression or your own formula has to come from your FABULOUS vision. First you want to create your Fabulous Statement of Inspiration. You know when you’ve done it correctly when you have tears of inspiration. When I created mine, that’s exactly what happened. Your vision needs to be visited every single day to block out the noise and the naysayers. How many times have you been knocked off your path because you had someone or something literally take your mojo away?
It happens all the time and the key is to learn how to master the art of staying on your vision no matter what happens.
Here’s are the important questions you need to ask yourself that will help create your Fabulous Statement of Inspiration
1. What is your unique FORMULA that you want to express that sets you apart from everyone else?
2. What is your INSPIRED mission?
What would you like to do in this vision, what would you like to have in this vision and how do you want to show up?
3. What is the VALUE you that you bring?
From there your marketing plan will be the catalyst to get your work out into the world!
Once this is complete then….
There’s no stopping you and you know you’re here to do EXTRAORDINARY things!
If you want to go beyond just paying the bills and be in demand you have to start thinking bigger just like Ingrid, Elon, and Apple.
See yourself a playing on a bigger scale!
Create and read your F.S.I. everyday and tweak as you go.
Your unconscious mind will start shifting and you see yourself mastering each step as you go.
If you’re looking to go BEYOND the “just getting by life” and want to build something EXTRAORDINARY then let me help you create your unique Formula For Fabulous Living.
